    For me it was goku vs cauifla and kale being 4 or 5 episodes long wtf was up with that bullshit. What was worse is that vegeta vs toppo was going on during this bullshit.

    I agree, it shouldve been 2 episodes at least with Vegeta busting out a Shin Gamma Burst Flash on Toppo(Final Explosion was good though).

    There was quite bias with Goku and the Saiyan Girls getting a total of 6 episodes while Vegeta and Cabba not even 2 full episodes.

    WATS worse is that previously overpowered golden freeza and 17 just before that
    Yet a weakened base Goku and final form Freeza were able to stagger him

    There was nothing to tell. The story was non-existant.
    Punch Punch Transformations Beam Beam pew pew.
    Almost no Drama, no Development ... Unlike F.Trunks Saga.

    Good for people who seek nothing but action, but old school DBZ had more than that.

    It's like pro wrestling. It's more enjoyable if you don't power scale too much.

    The absolute worst part of the Tournament of Power was the fact that it transformed from an actual battle royale to just: Universe 7 vs All other Universes in order.

    It was like all the characters forgot they were fighting each other and it became a U7 wank fest. Everyone lined up to get bodied by U7.

    Really it was only Universe 6 that actually fought people different than U7.

    Jiren, despite vehemently wanting to win the ToP, decided that in the countless times he defeated Goku and Vegeta, he wouldn't eliminate them.

    Jiren beats Hit? Eliminates him.

    Jiren beats Maji Kayo? Eliminates him.

    Jiren beats Goku countless times? Nah, lets leave him to recover.

    This happens several times and for absolutely no reason. It's the most blatant showcasing of plot armor I think I've ever seen. It legitimately urked me every time this happened.

    Goku vs Caulifla and Kale being 3000 episodes :drake

    Ribrianne having 10x more screen time than Kamen Rider dude but being fodder :scust

    Toppo vs Vegeta being like..five minutes, because we REALLY needed Goku vs two fodder hoes to be 5 episodes :camby

    It didn't feel like a battle royale either

    Most of the new characters with interesting powers got eliminated too early, and instead Toei left us with garbage. Toyo didn't even try. I don't mind if Goku and Vegeta flex out of the hax through raw ki but it would've been interesting seeing the Humans outthink their way through it.

    Tien's inclusion was pointless. Why didn't they just replace him with Freeza instead of what happened to Buu:confusedjr

    Goten and Trunks are still the same appearance and are fusion fodder for Gotenks...but I guess that's more of an issue with Super in general.

    Android 17 surviving the explosion was stupid and I liked him.

    The tournament being no kill was stupid. WTF is the point if you're gonna erase them? :rlynigga

    The other universes thinking Universe 7 was Evil didn't really get followed up on.

    NO TOPPO VS GOHAN! ARE YOU SERIOUS?

    This is getting too long but I can go on forever..but I'm still a DB shill :wow

    Anime Jirens character, they made him unlikeable in the worst way until the last episode, whoever thought of giving him the LB mode should be shot and sent to work to Teen Titans Go.

    Spamming SSB blue to the point the transformation means nothing now.

    MUI being another transformation instead of a technique.

    Anime talking ...The whole goku sensei vs the saiyan girls , just the final attack was cool , one of the coolest moments , but that’s 10 seconds out of hours of embarrassing episodes .
    Manga talking .. gohan vs kefla offscreen

    Piccolo being eliminated by a bug that he COULDN'T HEAR.

    Android 17 eliminating the same bug that he somehow could hear.

    Ribrianne

    Roshi being relevant at all

    Not having an iconic final five of Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Piccolo and Freeza

    Kuririn being the first one eliminated when Roshi was RIGHT THERE

    Everyone targeting U7 despite the fact that U11 had the real threat

    Android 17 surviving his "sacrifice"

    Android 17's power inflation

    Namekian fight turning into a Gohan hype episode instead of throwing Piccolo a bone

    Having the entire buildup to the tournament focusing on teamwork and then everyone fucking off to do their own thing anyway

    Hit eliminated too early

    Too much focus on the U6 Sues

    Super Saiyan Blue popping up every other fight for no reason

    Goku being completely out of stamina yet cycling through literally every Super Saiyan form in almost every episode

    Powerscaling all over the place

    Toriyama introducing us to multiple different universes and then immediately blowing his load in typical Toriyama fashion by having every strong or interesting character introduced in one arc, robbing himself of a ton of potential story arcs

    How everyone ignored how stamina works
    Vegeta somehow surviving a suicide attack because "he's stronger now"
    SSBE just coming out of nowhere
    Toppo having a badass transformation, owning Freeza, only to spend the next episode looking like a bum
    Beerus and Krillin acting like Goku's in danger of losing when he hasn't even gone SS against some scrub
    Roshi wank (especially in the manga)
    The Frost/Freeza subplot going absolutely nowhere
    Episode 101
    The cheesy "my bonds give me power Jiren!" speech

    Imo a lot of the grievances about the ToP having too many characters could've been solved if each of the big universes had their own arc with Goku and friends before the tournament started.

    :pepecry What could've been..
