All he does is design 4 or 5 characters, say basic stuff about them and leave full freedom to Toei/Toyo for the rest.

ToP example : He only designed Jiren,Toppo and Dyspo.
He designed Caulifla as an answer to Toei designing Kale.

He didn't even tell Toei stuff about characters.

Toei planned for Jiren to be a justice fanatic but Toriyama said he doesn't speak much so Toppo got the justice fanatic personality
Dyspo's cocky attitude was also made by Toei.

And some guys here are arguing Toriyama actually read that freakin novelization of Broly movie to confirm Broly is > Jiren. Laffin

Agreed. People care too much about what Toriyama does. He hasn't been good for a while now. I wouldn't mind if he backed out again. He doesn't do much but when he does he actively ruins the series. See DB Minus.
Don't play dumb with me, you're not as good at it as I am.

TC, you are talking about Toriyama's involvement with DBS the series (and even then you are downplaying it). Not the movies.

It's inaccurate to say this for the BoG/RoF/Broly movies.

Even though I have no source to back it up I always felt this to be the case too. I feel like he isn't as involved as everyone thinks he is but I think Toei (and AT himself) have realized if his name is attached to it it is automatically better received.

Yeah he's kinda gone full George Lucas.

He admittedly doesn't even REMEMBER his own IP. Hence why the stuff he does now doesn't match up and winds up making stuff worse.
