1. He’s simply the coolest.
2. He looked super-fresh in that one filler episode when he needed to get a driver’s license
Which also gave us this moment:
3. There’s the time he had his epic fight vs. THE MOON.
4. Maybe the sexiest character to come from a race of hermaphroditic slug people.
5. Let’s not forget all those times he kicked ASS (before getting defeated and needing Goku to show up)
6. He’s especially good at… regeneration.
7. And he’s the only fighter badass enough to do THIS:
8. He has his own unofficial Internet holiday! (I mean, who doesn’t these days?)
9. Compared to Goku and Vegeta, he’s the best father-figure in the entire DBZ canon
10. He’s been ressurrected, fused, killed, and reborn so many times that it’s insane even by “magic alien slug lizard” standards.
11. Even the Pope has cosplayed as him?
12. He has the most motivational moment in the history of anime
13. The dude killed Goku with only two fingers
14. While never quite the absolute strongest, he’s always been the absolute coolest Z-fighter
15. ALWAYS. THE. COOLEST.
