Look...I love Yamcha because back then he was considered the goat, but ever since he was jobbed by the saibaman everyone made a meme out of him and because of that they were never able to do anything better for him after that point in the arc.

Which Brings me here. I believe that Yamcha and Tien are the representatives of the OG Dragon Ball, and even though there is a chance Roshi and Kid Goku could get in, it would most likely be the former. Because you are easily able to recreate the classic fight scenes from Dragon Ball such as Yamcha Vs. Tien and Yamcha Vs. Goku And Vs. Krillin (kinda).

And its because of these moments that make me cherish fodder characters like Nappa and Ginyu.

People like to jump on the "These characters are fodder" Bandwagon even though they were considered to be a very powerful threat and had very unique techniques. (Hence why they are even in the game in the first place) I would like to see any of you try and beat Nappa or Ginyu or The Danger Trio not even in just a fight, just Arm Wrestling and see how that works for you.

Ginyu is the most 'Mahvel' character of this game thus far, most screen clutter too.

He only won alone against a hungry Goku if I remember well. He even surrended against Pilaf's team.

Since the saiyan saga dude, Nappa got clowned by Goku and Vegeta could have done what he did far faster and with far more brutality. Nappa’s whole existence was derived to put over how strong Goku got in a year.

How is someone who kills 3 main characters "fodder"?

Yes, Vegeta was much stronger than him and Goku beating the crap out of him showed how strong Goku got, but let's not act like him beating the crap out of 6 Z Warriors and killing 3 of them (4 if you count Yamcha) is anything close to jobbing.

He was NEVER considered the GOAT by anybody except puar.

The only thing classis about his fight with Tien is when Tien broke his leg.

Goku was hungry when he "lost" to Yamcha.

Beating up the Z warriors is nothing special, they were fed to Nappa to make Goku look good when he went over. Simple as that, hell by the time we get to Namek it's revealed that Cui, Dodoria and Zarbon(more fodder btw) were easily capable of the same feat.

Nappa had a lot of screentime and did a lot of nothing. Generic punches and kicks and a mouth blast. This is why he needed to be bundled with a saibaman. High powered, main villain, main character types get gassed more because they get tons of screentime and do more s*** with it.

This is why Kid Boo is being universally praised, and why his views also cleared 100k in under a day while only Trashtain Binyu of the fodder 4 could crack 100k after a month on the damn EU channel.

Mind you, of the fodder 4 I happen to like the least popular one(Tenshinhan). I am going to play him and he'll be on my team but his inclusion caused almost universal sleep across the world.

In my opinion this game doesn’t have a single fodder character. Yamcha was an important sidekick in original DB, Tenshinhan was as strong if not stronger than Goku for a while, and Nappa was a beast in the Saiyan arc to all but Goku and Vegeta.

To me fodder characters would be something like a Saibaman.

That's the point. Fodder is an opinion. In my opinion? If you aren't Jiren, Hit, Whis, Beerus, a few other GoDs, Goku, Vegeta, Toppo, and Frieza? Yo ass pretty much "fodder"

Fodder in my definition just means weak. Meaning you are WEAKER than the STRONGER characters aka the ones I just listed. That's fodder to me. Any of those I listed would have to fight seriously with each other at some point. Whereas if they fought anyone else? They wouldn't even have to try. Goku pretty much proved that with how he fodderized and handled everyone in the tournament except Jiren.
