    Now that the series is over, do you agree or disagree with the decision to put Buu on the sidelines and have Frieza in the ToP instead?

    From what I understand, they legitimately planned on having Buu in it until Toriyama had them put Frieza in instead. I can kind understand...Buu is a little too hax for this kind of situation. Even Jiren probably can't help if Buu turns him into a piece of candy, and having Frieza there brought interesting dynamics. But I know some people wish Buu had been kept in instead. Thoughts on which would be better?

    Nah Master Roshi did bits in the ToP and we also got that touching moment between him Goku and Krillin. I can't actually remember anything Tien did in ToP except get eliminated.

    His power level was lower than 100 he shouldn't have been able to do anything

    No, his average powerlevel when relaxed is 100, he can control it to be much much higher thanks to ki control. So his limits was never stated. And he got an upgrade in Super unlike Tien. Who doesn't even have kaioken after being dead for years.

    Tenshinhan did serve a purpose. He was there to show Master Roshi's growth. He was there to to hype Master Roshi.

    Its heartbreaking, but that was his purpose.

    We didn't need Krillin tbh

    Roshi is the OG so he stays

    Also who wouldn't want to see the old hermit in another tournament? It gave me maximum nastalgia.

    Tall Krillin basically but with even less plot relevance.

    17 shouldn't have been involved.

    He will have no future relevance and isn't part of the main group and his role was literally to be last man standing while everyone else does the work so his role could have easily been given to someone else like Buu.

    Frieza will be involved in the future so made sense for the series.

    The only problem with 17 is that it makes no sense for him to be so strong.

    When it happened I was pissed off, I didnt want to Frieza again after how shit Rof was. Now Im happy that Frieza replaced buu as he was one of the best things in top.Although buu should of been in top instead of Tein,Krillin or Roshi

    I agree with the rest, Tien could've gone and Buu could have stayed.

    Tbh, there's no reason that Krillin couldn't have done that in Tien's place.

    Considering how much they hate Tien, i really don't understand why they didn't just replace him with Buu

    Buu is hax for sure, but they can also use his lack of intelligence to get rid of him if they couldn't be bothered with a more thought out exit for him.

    We've already seen that Whis can accelerate time locally, like when he magically birthed Bra. He could have woken Buu. The writers just decided not to include him because it would have been impossible to not make him overly OP / undefeatable more or less.

    F.Trunks, Buu and Lizard instead of Tien, Roshi and Krillin

    U7 would have ended the ToP like 15+ episodes earlier :kobeha
