Super Dynamic Fighting Kamikaze Gotenks Sentai! by FontesMakua Super Dynamic Fighting Kamikaze Gotenks Sentai! by FontesMakua
I like Gotenks. He (or they, whatever) should be in Super's Tournament of Power arc, instead of playing the fanservice card with Roshi and milking the crap out of Freeza's fans. Anyway, a bit of practice.

Would't it be fanservice having Gotenks in the Tournament of Power too? Just a different kind?
Meh, whatever. I think the reason they weren't in it is because both Goten and Trunks would of taken up separate slots, also they are young and extremely experienced in strategic fighting.

Anyway awesome picture here!

Imma just leave this here, I agree with the guy 100%: www.youtube.com/watch?v=42HNvl…

I like Freeza as much as the next guy... but they're milking him too much, too quickly. It's also a terrible idea to bring that traitor in. He might not do anything in the end, but the mere idea that he might can't be good for the team's morale. As for Roshi... come on. Dude's supposed to be old and weak. What were they thinking? Even YAMCHA would be a better fit. That's how much of an asspull this is.

So yeah... boot those two, put the kids in. I'm sorry, but how fun would it be to see Gotenks wreaking havok with a battalion of Kamikaze Ghosts?! Those two kids deserve more of a spotlight... and a bit of puberty, while we're at it. They're supposed to be early teenagers, by now.

Oh I was refering more to the Roshi part of your point. I'd have to agree with you on the Frieza part, they that is one bit of fan service that is getting a bit too over done. They should of stuck with Buu would of been better, but Frieza is just that much more marketable. Especially with his Golden Form.
Roshi was there to show that strength and power wasn't everything when it came to the Tournament of Power (ironically). Strategy, skills, and experience are also very important for the Tournament. This was shown really well in his performance in the show. Sure he wasn't as strong as others, but he still helped eliminate 5 people in the tournament, most of them by himself. Not to mention it helped better develop his character, showing him that he isn't a useless pervy old man, but still someone that can provide.

I have to agree with you on the fact that Goten and Trunks need some actual attention and better development. And yeah, Gotenks would of been cool to see in the fight, but it doesn't feel like he/they would be the best pic strategically. Just a matter of opinion though.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that Tenshinhan could already fill the skill and strategy part. Like the guy in that video says, dude's got a shit-ton of moves, and he's been training his whole life, non-stop. He has the skill, experience, and the strength to actually do something. And yes, I'd much rather see Buu than Freeza. Hilarity would ensue as he'd turn someone into candy... and potentially try to eat them, only to have Vegeta slap Buu on the back of the head to spit it back out, or some shit.

Roshi, on the other hand... he took 5 guys down because the script said so, and that's it. Remember when he died by doing a Mafuba, back in DB? It seems that now he can do TWO Mafubas, a full-power Kamehameha, and still stand long enough to gobble a senzu bean. For a dude that stopped training decades ago, and can't even sense ki (then again, no one seems to be able to do that, now, for some reason)... that's a hell of an asspull power-up, right there.

As for Gotenks... again, he can vomit sentient chunks of C4. Imagine Piccolo tag-teaming with Gotenks, telling him telepatically what to do with those ghosts... instead of being Gohan's nanny. What a fucking waste.

Tien did get the bum end of things. Infact if Gotenks was part of the team I feel like Tien would of been replaced by either Goten or Trunks.

Well they did imply that Roshi was doing some secret training off screen and tried using that to explain how strong he is. Also (this is more helping your point) Roshi did 3 Mafubas, once on that shadow illusion lady, one failed one on Frost, then a 3rd one on Megeta which Frost intercepted and used to catch Vegeta. So he somehow survived 3 Mafubas.

Gotenks does have some cool moves, but something you have to consider is his/their mental state when it comes to combat. They're cocky and show off too much that they waste precious time and opportunities. Also they would likely panic in the face of being erased. Especially after the first universe was erased. They would of been cool, but personally I think their inclusion would of been almost as fanservicey as some of the other options. (besides Frieza, as we said before they are over milking that fanservice)
