Well it was all done on purpose but I doubt there's anything satanic in it.


everything is relative and contradictory ~

Good obs. I think it's all coincidence, I don't believe it.

I think Neon Genesis Evangelion has the most "Abrahamic" references out there.

Well people I also don't believe that it is "Satanic",it was more like a joke.But the fact is that there is many "Satanic" references at Dragon Ball Z.

What do you think of that?(Stupid subject I know,but don't be mad at me for that!)
I've noticed that, too....Dabura does look like him, and he can turn people to stone.

Oky i think all these thing are just coincidence's cuz lets not forget jou can pull a real moral leason out of Dragon ball , Dragon ball Z, and Dragon ball GT cuz did Goku ever swear?? did he ever had a bad thought?? did he ever give up?? no he did not although he wasn't perfect he still got mad at times but he had a pure heart and everyone who he has came across he changed their lives and showed them there is another way , he showed them if a man is down , u give them your hand, EVEN if that man is your enemy, he showed all his enemy's mercy, he gave them a chance to get away no matter what they did 2 him OR his friends and family, and he knew if he struck his enemy's down when he could he would not be any better than them, and yes at times his friendly nature gave him VERY hard times at the end he was the one on top of all his enemy's and he was always one step ahead and he always gave 200% and the Dubura character everyone noticed... when he died he went to other-world and them he was completely changed (wierd) but yeah dont take that guy so seriously he is just a joke and Mr Satan well i read a comment that someone said he was "bad ass" well i dont know what Dragon ball you were watching but the closest that guy came to "bad ass" was telling the dog 2 sit and he cant fight for shit so actualy they are making fun of the real Satan so i think Dragon ball is not satanic... PEACE OUT

Satanic, as in meant to promote Satanism and draw children into the occult? The answer a hell no.

I'm kinda surprised to see a brand-new user necropost a thread that's years old.


Hey, does this rag smell like chloroform?

Actually it is *anti-Satanic*, cause in the manga/anime Mr. Satan is portrayed as a show-off who unduly boasts of his alleged powers taht he doesn't possess.

YET, it is surely vegetarian (and food-loving): names like Vege-ta (vegtable), Kakarotto (carrote), karintou etc. come to mind...

See the devil a lot, do you?

Ah, you know what this reminds me of? Back when Pokemon were considered Satanic and brain-washing, or when Harry Potter was evil and guilty of trying to convert children to devil-worship . . . is any series safe of these claims?

P.S Mr Satan was renamed to Hercule in the dubbed, very anti-satanic, and I doubt the majority of Japanese would have understood the Christian reference, or if they did cared about it. Also, at the risk of getting into the forbidden theological debates, '666' is often argued to be a mistranslation of the actual 'number of the beast', and other numbers such as '616' are gaining weight as the "actual" number
