It depends on how old you get it, many series can cause quite a big impact on you or even leave you with some small trauma. Watching ‘Dragon Ball’, we can surely list a few, and if we start to draw up the list of villains, we can end up having nightmare stuff.
The series has shocking and ruthless antagonists for a while, and it is one of the things we like the most about ‘Dragon Ball’ because uA story without a good villain stays lame, TRUE? But if you want a good villain to arouse respect and fear, you have to start with the author himself.
Straight out of Toriyama’s worst dreams
In fact, Akira Toriyama We have already spoken on some occasion about the character who is most afraid of ‘Dragon Ball’, and it is easy to agree with him. Not only is he the current great villain of the manga drawn by Toyotaro, he is also one of the most iconic in all of history and we must agree with Toriyama, being afraid of frieza.
As the mangaka explained long ago in an interview, he designed Frieza based on his own nightmares. The villain of ‘Dragon Ball’ has had many different forms throughout the manga and anime, and to define them Toriyama was inspired by the most terrifying creatures he saw in his dreams as a child.
Toriyama’s nightmares especially influenced Frieza’s lizard form, and that ruthless look of not going to leave puppet with a head. This creature caused Toriyama a real fear as a child and when he created Frieza he remembered the worst moments that caused his nightmare…
Although it is also true that Toriyama’s dreams were not the only inspiration and Frieza also ended up having a little bit of the Xenomorph. from ‘Alien’. All very friendly and straight out of a good nightmare.
