Yamcha vs Slade




Suggested by iKnowledge Yamcha is back and now it’s time for him to teach Slade a thing or two. Slade’s a good fighter and a quick learner so he will quickly realize that he is outmatched here. Yamcha is so strong that he was even able to go up against a Saibaman. It may not have ended all that well for him, but the important thing is that he is always improving. I wouldn’t be surprised if this match ends in an instant. Yamcha wins.

Yamcha vs Ulik

Suggested by iKnowledge Ulik is a pretty powerful guy. His hits would even shatter a mountain if given the chance. However, Ulik is up against a casual planet buster in the form of Yamcha. Yamcha’s Wolf Fist is also very fast and one hit would instantly destroy Ulik. When you’re up against an opponent who is both faster and stronger than you there really aren’t a whole lot of options at your disposal. I’m afraid that Ulik will not be able to find his way out of this situation and will quickly be defeated. Yamcha wins.

Taskmaster vs Yamcha

Taskmaster_USM
Suggested by iKnowledge Taskmaster is a pretty intense Marvel villain who is food at copying his opponent’s fighting styles as well as their strengths and weaknesses. He’s the kind of guy who really doesn’t go down without a fight, but that won’t help against a character like Yamcha who can literally crack planets with a punch. A single blast should take care of Taskmaster for good and no form of hand to hand combat can help to prevent that. Yamcha will finally be able to secure the victory he has been waiting for. Yamcha wins.

Dragon Ball Side Story: The Case of Being Reincarnated as Yamcha Review


The manga trilogy has finally ended so it’s time for the review. This mini series only got three chapters so it’s pretty short. That’s too bad because the premise just had a whole lot of potential in it. The basic plot is that a kid in the human world is a big fan of Dragon Ball. Unfortunately in the real world he’s just a really unlikable guy who has no redeeming qualities. One day, he decides to fall even lower on the moral totem pole when he falls down a flight of stairs and breaks his neck. It’s surprisingly a happy moment since he felt like the main antagonist. Instead of dying, the kid wakes up as Yamcha in the Dragon Ball series. He must now find a way to become a better character and avoid dying. Since he knows the events in advance he has a real shot here, but can he do it?

You can probably see why the premise has potential. There’s so much you can do with this kind of story since you know what is going to happen and can take steps to avoid it. Yamcha may not be able to do much against the final threats like Cell and Buu but even those are things that he can get past if he knows the origins. For Buu, just eliminate Spopovich and the other ally before they can get Gohan. For Cell, attack him in his first form or tell everyone where he is and that should be easy enough. You can escape almost any scenario.

The main character actually does do quite a bit of this at first. He trains hard so he is able to actually help against Frieza and the foes before him. He basically gives up on doing this by the Cell arc and decides to just watch which is fine I suppose. He knows he’ll come back to life anyway. You just can’t explore this concept as much as you could have if this was an ongoing series. Additionally, the series throws in the twist of having another human being warped into the series and the lead has to find out who he is. Naturally, this character is evil so they have a fight but the power of being a DBZ fan wins him over. This is all so rushed and unnatural that you have to wonder exactly why it was added.

Again, this could be a really interesting concept especially when you find out that if you die you get to retry your time in the universe. It could have been like a Groundhog Day where they explore many different avenues. Instead the whole second human plot is finished in one chapter. The ending was certainly an interesting twist as we at least get a reason why the human got into the world. Unfortunately, even the ending is wrecked as the main character immediately goes back to his old shady ways of being a creep. I thought the whole point was that he was going to learn a lesson…not that he would use his newfound abilities to be even worse in the real world.

Really, this manga is only held back by the main character. Otherwise, it’s pretty solid. The art is quite good and really does resemble DBZ at some points. It isn’t as consistent and has some flaws in that respect, but I would say that the art is quite good. It’s certainly a lot better than I would have anticipated from a short title like this one. I wonder how many people even know that this manga exists.

Overall, it’s a fun concept but you can only do so much with it. I’d recommend checking it out as many fans have always wanted a fun little alternate universe story like this one. You can even argue that the story could be cannon and wouldn’t make a difference. It would raise a lot of questions of course, but it could work. Hopefully we get more Dragon Ball spinoff mangas. Despite its overwhelming popularity we haven’t gotten as many titles as I’d like. We need to keep it rolling and get the Saiyans in a bunch of different adventures. Just resist the urge to add a human original character to the mix and then we’re golden. If you do add one, just keep in the death from the first chapter without actually bringing him back, now That would be funny.

Overall 5/10

Bass vs Yamcha

Yamcha is a Z fighter, but that won’t be enough to stop Bass. I’m sure that you’ve heard all of this before, but Bass isn’t an opponent that just anyone can defeat! He is the strongest being in all of media and nobody’s been able to stop him yet. That’s the kind of power that the mighty Bass has at his disposal. One good Earthbreaker should end this. Bass wins.

Master Roshi vs Yamcha


YamchaMasterRoshiEp284
Master Roshi may have been tough back in the olden days, but he won’t be able to defeat Yamcha. Yamcha’s more of a fighter and he trained pretty hard in DBZ. He surpassed Master Roshi a long time ago and wins this round pretty easily. Its definitely been a long time since he got a win. Yamcha wins.

Mr Popo vs Yamcha



Mr Popo has some pretty cool skills, but they aren’t enough to take down Yamcha. Yamcha has his Wolf Fang Fist which can shatter whole mountains. Mr Popo loses again, but maybe he won’t have to fight for a while. Yamcha takes the win and rises up the ranks. Mr Popo drops yet again. Yamcha wins.
