If you were a Dragonball character...

Post by Kei » Sun Sep 13, 2009 3:57 am

Okay, so this is basically a rehash of my "If you were a Transformer..." topic, only instead of giant alien car robots, it involves superpowerful alien ki warriors. Basically, this is a chance to create your very own Mary Sue-ish self-insertion character in the Dragonball universe. Since ridiculously powerful characters are the norm for DB, I think we can have a lot of fun with this.

Here are the guidelines:

Name: Your character's name. In keeping with Dragonball tradition, your name MUST be a pun, preferably food-based. (see this article for more details)
Race: Any race from the DB universe is fair game... even ludicrously powerful ones like the Shadow Dragons. Keep in mind that many of the races were never given official names, so you might have to use conjectural titles like "Frieza's Species".
Gender: (if applicable)
Age: Self-explanatory
Appearance: Although you can just describe your character's appearance here, feel free to use a picture as well. DeviantArt is a great place to find fan-created DB characters, particularly by these artists: Linky Linky Linky Linky Linky (some of those artists have DBZ galleries in their sidebars). Even a simple search on DeviantArt can reveal some pretty good (and strange) stuff, like female Namekians or female Majin Buu.
Allegiance: Is your character evil, good or neutral? Doe he protect the Earth like Goku? Does he destroy planets like Frieza? Or does he just love mindless mayhem and death like Buu?
Techniques: List one or two of your characters favorite attacks or moves here (i.e. Kamehameha or Instant Transmission)
Bio: Give a brief summary of your character's history. Plot devices to avoid: amnesia and "the chosen one". :P
Personality: Write a few characteristics about your character's personality here.

Well, that's about it. Here's my character.

Name: Maruki (pun on Malukhiyah, also known as Corchorus)
Race: Saiyan
Gender: Female
Age: Actual age: 23 Physical age: 17 (due to stasis during spaceflight)
Appearance: Created by combining art by Seijimei and Repture.

Image



Allegiance: King Vegeta and the Saiyan species, Chaotic Evil
Techniques:
Maru Ring: Maruki forms 6-inch wide 1.5-inch thick rings around her wrists and ankles, which she claims aid her agility and strength by providing "ki focusing points". Other fighters are somewhat skeptical that this technique actually provides any combat advantage.
Focused Death Charge: Maruki first developed this technique for carpet-bombing Jellian cities. She compresses a vast amount of ki into a tightly compacted ball of red energy (about the size of a baseball), which she fires rapidly at her target. The ball's small size and rapid velocity makes it difficult to intercept. Upon impact, the ball will release a large amount of ki in a massive blast, capable of reducing an entire city to dust.
Saiyan Revenge Death Beam: This attack funnels the anger Maruki feels over the death of the Saiyan species into a two-handed black energy beam fringed by a red glow and red lightning. This is superficially similar to Baby's Revenge Death Ball.
Bio: Maruki was a low-class warrior who, as an infant, was sent out in an Attack Ball (or Saiyan Pod) to the planet Jell in order to eradicate its weak inhabitants. After she finished exterminating the Jellians by age twelve, Maruki sent a message to Planet Vegeta, informing them of her triumph and requesting that they send a ship to retrieve her (as her Attack Ball did not have enough fuel left to make a return trip to Vegeta). After four years of waiting, however, no ship arrived. Maruki began to despair. Fortunately, she discovered a naturally occurring element, which the inhabitants called Jella, deep inside Jell and was able to refine it into starship fuel. Since naturally occurring Jella interfered with her scouter's function, Maruki developed the ability to naturally sense ki during this period.
At the age of seventeen, Maruki departed Jell in her Attack Ball and began the three-year stasis trip back to Vegeta. Upon arrival, she discovered that the planet was missing; only a sparse debris field remained in its place. Vegeta had been destroyed during her mission on Jell. Upon realizing that her entire race had been exterminated, Maruki flew into an extreme fit of rage and ascended to the level of Super Saiyan.
The energies released by her transformation tore her Attack Ball apart, exposing Maruki to the vacuum of space. She fell unconscious and began to asphyxiate. Fortunately, she was picked up by a nearby scavenger ship with two occupants. Recognizing her species, the scavengers tried to restrain her (with the intent to sell her to Frieza); however, upon regaining consciousnesses, she broke free. After learning the identity of the being who destroyed Vegeta, as well as his search for the Dragon Balls, she killed the scavengers and commandeered their ship, intending to hunt down Frieza and avenge the Saiyan race.
Personality: Maruki's chief trait is homesickness. During her time on Jell, she was very lonely; upon discovering her race's destruction, this loneliness was amplified. This drives her to take revenge against Frieza, as well as use the Dragon Balls to restore Planet Vegeta and the Saiyans. Maruki is so adamant in her pursuit of these goals, she could almost be described as obsessive. She has a healthy lust for battle, and will not hesitate to kill weaker beings without remorse.
In combat, Maruki values efficiency above all else. Instead of using flashy techniques or special maneuvers, she attacks her enemies quickly, directly and brutally. She prefers to fight on instinct, and favors a simple display of brute force over the use of tactics.

Name: Dan Gow (based on the Chinese word for "cake")
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Appearance: Special thanks to kjstyles2x-treme for the original artwork

Image



Allegiance: Earth
Techniques:
Life Siphon = Dan can "suck" the ki from a creature by touching it. The attack becomes more effective the closer Dan's touch is to one of the creature's chakras. He can then use the stolen ki to recharge himself or an ally.
Healing Beam = Unlike most healers, who must maintain physical contact with their patients, Dan created a technique to shoot a unique beam of ki that is immediately absorbed by whatever living thing it hits. Due to the way Dan has to manipulate the ki to make the beam benign, the energy is much less concentrated--and therefore much less efficient--than traditional healing techniques.
Starburst = Dan creates hundreds of tiny balls of highly concentrated ki in a sphere around his body. These ki balls detonate outward almost immediately after being created. This is a purely defensive technique, as it does a very light amount of damage but is able to blow an enemy that's close enough several hundred yards away and temporarily blind them.
Bio: At a young age, Dan was highly trained in traditional martial arts, even winning the occasional small tournament. After he saw a young Goku defeat Piccolo Jr. at the 23rd World Martial Art Tournament, he resolved to learn the strange ki techniques the two fighters used. Initial progress was very slow and frustrating, but he eventually managed to fly and even create a beam powerful enough to severely injure a human of excellent physical condition (which he learned thanks to some very surprised criminals). Even with this breakthrough, he suspected early on that his talent was not in purely offensive techniques. One of his first experiments with directed ki was applying it to the concept of chakras. He had great success with the animals he tested his hypotheses on, managing to heal several from the brink of death to as good as new. Although he continued to work on aggressive uses of focused ki, he spent most of his time developing and perfecting various ways to use it to heal. When he felt he was skilled enough to go into the world as a "superhero", he decided to model his costume after his own favorite superheroes: the Capsule Corp.-brand Saiyan armor worn by Gohan, Krillin, and the recently-reformed Vegeta.
Personality: Though many are intimidated by his gruff, no-nonsense demeanor and blunt, sometimes harsh, speech, those who know him understand he just wants to make sure everyone is doing exactly what they're supposed to do so they don't get hurt. He's actually hardest on his own slip-ups and will beat himself up over mistakes that most other fighters would deem small and easy to make. His two-tone hair perfectly illustrates his self-sacrificial attitude. During Vegeta and Nappa's attack on Earth, Dan helped heal those who survived the carnage. He was so intent on saving as many as possible that he didn't even notice how much ki he had used up until his hair turned grey and he nearly died from exhaustion. Rather than covering up the grey hair, he colored half of it black and claimed the new style would add to his already impressive ability to scare his enemies.

Name: Branch
Race: Namek
Gender: Asexual
Appearance: Green

Allegiance: To the continued survival of the Namekian race.
Background: As one of the few remaining survivors of the original planet Namek, Branch learnt his techniques from the village elders 23 Earth years previously, the same as all other members of his tribe. When Frieza all but destroyed Branch's village in the quest for the Dragon Balls, it was decided by the seriously injured and now dieing elders to fuse with Branch in order to save generations worth of knowledge. Branch was saved before Namek exploded, and as a result is now one of the most powerful guardians of the new Namek colony.
Personality: His vast power reserves and highely honed intellect, as well as mastery of Namekian martial arts allowed him to become one with his elders and yet retain his solid, quiet personality. Despite not seeking company, he is a highly respected individual amongst the remaining Namekians, and as such he has been entrusted to the development and training of the youngsters in the colony.
Techniques:Techniques include:
Rhu' berb: which can be likened to Piccolo's "Special Beam Cannon" except with broader AOE.
Tarroc Beam: a more concentrated tracking shot that follows the opponents ki, allowing for multiple attacks at the same time, or as a useful distraction when facing multiple enemies.
Slipstream: An ability that allows him to briefly increase his speed AND mask his power, this ability is especially useful when counterattacking.

Ok, I'll make an android.

Name: No. 42
Race: Android (Artificial Human)
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Appearance: Pic altered from original work by kjstyles2x-treme (amazing work, man)

No. 42.jpg
No. 42.jpg (38.82 KiB) Viewed 4572 times



Allegiance: The protection of life, Natural Good
Techniques:
Ki Barrier and Absorption: No. 42 was the first android made with a complete Ki Barrier which absorbs all energy blasts which come in contact with him. This energy is then stored within his body and can be reused any way he needs to. A fail-safe system was added which forces him to expel any energy in access of his battery limit through points built in his back.
Near-limitless Energy: No. 42 has an upgraded version of the batteries Numbers 16 through 18 had. He does not tire and has a larger energy capacity than those of previous models. It is possible for No. 42 to expel his energy stores, at which point his body shuts down and his battery re-energizes itself.
Teleportation: No. 42 can teleport instantly to any location which he can see. The further he teleports, the more energy it costs him to do so.
Built-in-scouter: Using stolen Saiyan technology, No. 42 can scan and find energy sources in the same way Saiyan scouters do.
Auto Regeneration: Although it takes a lot of time and energy, No. 42 can repair his body using nanites.
Bio: No. 42 was brought online 2 years ago. His original mission was to Help the Red Ribbon Army conquer the Earth. However, only a few months after being brought online No. 42 (much like No. 16 before him) decided he preferred to protect life instead of destroy it. He left the Red Ribbon Army, removed the homing beacon inside his body, and has been traveling the world ever since.
Personality: No. 42 is cold, calculating, quiet, and loves to just sit and observe animals (much like No. 16). He used to fight anything that he saw as a threat to life and (quite paradoxically) was willing to harm and kill any living thing which tried to harm another living thing. After about a year, No. 42 decided not to interfere directly in the lives of animals when he found he had killed the parent of a group of dinosaurs while trying to defend some animals. He now will only fight if he finds a being consciously going out of its way to harm or kill another being (basically he doesn't like murder, but won't stop natural predators).

I decided to pick a different image for Maruki. I combined pieces by Seijimei and Repture to create this:

Ok heres my character.Sorry don't have any pics.

Name:Ares(based off of the greek god's name)
Race:Unknown only to humans,but he is a Saiyan
Gender:Male
Age:0-11(Vegeta to Beanz)11-14(Beanz to Vegeta)19(Earth)
Appearance:Ares wears yellow pants similar to that of the Super Saiyan 4 Transformation,A black undershirt and blue jacket.He has blue eyes and black hair which resembles The Super Saiyan 4 hairstyle but not as wild.He also cam go Super Saiyan which leads others to think he is a Saiyan.In this state his black undershirt is more purplish and he always takes off his jacket.His pants also turn more of a orangish color.His hair always stands up like that of a Super Saiyan 3 without the long hair that goes down.
Alleigance:Anti-Hero
Techniques:Spinning Slicer:The Spinning Slicer is much like the Destructo Disc but there are a few differeces.One is that Ares can control it with his hand making it very hard to dodge.The other being that Arran can make it self-destruct before making any impact on anything and he can also make it act as a surfboard by riding through the air on it.
Light Chains:This technique let's Ares use chains presumeably made of light that he can hse to wrap his opponent in,toss them around,and can make the chains self-destruct on whatever it's wrapped around not harming Ares one bit.
Blasting Charge Cannon:Using this technique Ares charges at his opponent while charging a powerful cannon.Then he will tackle his opponent hard in the gut while releasing his cannon making this his most powerful attack.
Bio:Nobody knows much about Ares past but it is assumed that he is a saiyan due to his aggresive nature and getting stronger every battle,win or lose.The truth that he only knows is that as a infant,like most Saiyan children,he was sent to a planet to conquer for the Saiyan's he was sent to Planet Beenz where he exterminated almost all of them in just two years.However,during the trip back to Planet Vegeta while traveling back there he ran out of fuel in his pod and was forced to witness Freiza destroy his home planet along with his father,mother and many others.Overcome with anger,sadness,and greif he went into a fit of rage almost tearing apart his space pod wanting to rip Freiza limb from limb.He acheived the level of Super Saiyan during his rage and went flying back to Planet Beenz alone and what he thought was the last of his race.He trained on Planet Beenz for many years until he was able to breathe while in space as a Super Saiyan.He flew looking for a planet to conquer and call the "New Planet Vegeta" when he found Earth.But when he was in orbit his energy ran out and he went unconsious and crashed deep into the ground on Earth.Since them he has been trying to search for more Saiyan's as he hears rumors about strong warriors with golden hair alot.
Personality:Ares is very aggresive and lonely but shows some compassion especially to orphons because every day he feels the exact same pain.
