The introduction of Granolah, portrayed as a powerful antagonist and eager to exact revenge on the Saiyans for what they did against Cereal and its denizens, piqued the interest of many readers of Dragon Ball greatonly to disappoint with a slew of misgivings, unwarranted upgrades, and evil villains.

there The saga of Granolah the Survivor proved increasingly confusing, desires expressed due to flashbacks, mysterious and unexplained forces, which only become disproportionately strong. Here then, eight fairly serious errors which we believe shaped the last 20 chapters of the manga.

The first is about Freeza. Since the appearance of the Heeters and the presentation of Granolah, we've talked about the Emperor and how the group led by Elec actually wants to oust him from his privileged position in order to rule a part of the universe. For now Freeza is still missing from the narrative, and to see the Heeters walk away from the battlefield after the events of chapter 86 would be quite contradictory.

The second weak element of the saga is Baddack's Embassy, or at least the interpretation that Goku gives to the words spoken by his father during his fight against gas, which took place 40 years before and relived thanks to the Saiyan's scout. The phrases spoken by Bardock and the mysterious force that is just awakening against the Heeter find no real meaning in the story, let alone whether Goku then manages to use them to his advantage to become stronger.

In third place we find them new form of Ultra Instinct achieved by the protagonist thanks to the words of Bardock. With this new transformation, Goku is able to exploit anger and instinct, but there are still many aspects to be clarified. Immediately after that was the addition of another serious idea Energy or Ki, version of Goku the same as happened in the clash with the magician Molo. This is certainly an interesting technique, but why not use it first or use it in smarter ways and strategies to deal with gas?

Now let's turn to Vegeta. The Saiyan Prince has managed to achieve a new transformation, the controversial Ultra Ego, only to be defeated first by Granolah and then by Gas. Vegeta is certainly a tragi-comic state, constantly being overtaken by Goku and never returning home with a real victory. Given the introduction of the Ultra Ego, the various clashes seen so far would have been excellent theater to guarantee the prince some satisfaction.

Sixth place goes toHypocrisy and the over-the-top goodness of granolah. Presented as a mercenary and willing to sacrifice years of his life to become powerful enough to slay Saiyans, the Cerulean admits that once he discovers the truth about his mother's death and has the chance to kill Saiyans, he will seek no more kill heeter revenge. A poor construction of a character that has become almost secondary to the story.

Then we find Gas, who, unlike Granolah, was portrayed as an almost marginal character and then took center stage by managing to get Goku and Vegeta in trouble, materializing with quickly explained power-ups, weapons and unleashing his true potential , whenever the heroes came close to victory. As much as it would be interesting to find out a lot more about the character for now Gas, which plays the role of the main antagonistappears alongside Molo, Jiren or Black Goku as a weak, if not superficial, and utterly unforgettable character.

Finally, we find an error that has been occurring for several chapters and arcs by now: the attention dedicated exclusively to Goku and Vegetaand the exclusion of other characters that certainly deserve more space, such as Gohan and Piccolo, who only managed to make a comeback thanks to the events narrated in the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie.
