This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Other World article.
I recently converted the list on this page into a table and it still needs a lot of information added to be complete. (I will try and work on it in the weeks to come, but there is tons of material to be added.) Off hand, Namekians who have died come to mind, as well as some characters who died a second time in the Super 17 Saga that I failed to list. There are plenty of minor characters that also haven't been included yet. If anyone thinks of information that I've left out, please include it! -- nonoitall 10:09, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
Super Buu deaths Edit
I notice a lot of these entries have Super Buu as a cause of death. When I first wrote the table, I tried to avoid putting any victims of Super Buu's human extinction attack for two reasons:
- We don't know which people were killed by Super Buu's attack and which people survived to be killed by Kid Buu's destruction of the Earth thereafter.
- We'd have to include almost every character in the series.
For that reason, it would seem to make more sense to have a generic explanation about the deaths caused by Super Buu and Kid Buu, and avoid putting them on the table. Actually, since the Hell list and list of deaths are almost a duplicates of this list, it might make more sense to remove all of the deaths from this list and just have a link to those lists, only keeping characters like the Kais on this table. What do you guys think? --12:11, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
so can you die when you are already dead or no --Ponds11 02:48, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, it has been proven in the Buu saga when a dead person dies again they ceace to exist.02:51, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
- That is actually one of the major inconsistencies through the Dragon Ball series. King Kai says that a body, once dead cannot be killed again. But later, when Krillin and Yamcha and the others attack Kid Buu while already dead, they are called crazy for risking their very existence if they died again.

so it is both --Ponds11 02:54, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
No, the Buu Saga explanation seems to be the correct one, due to it being Akria's final decesion on the matter.02:55, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
- Well, it is up in the air and really open for interpretation. As are many of the discrepencies or changes between the manga, anime, and different dubs. And we make no distinction regarding WHEN variants of an explanation are given. Just because it is the more recent one, doesn't necessarily mean it is the "correct" one, or even the one Akira Toriyama necessarily thinks is the "correct" one. It's just too big of an assumption considering how much he changed or added simply because he "forgot" about certain characters and locals. Dragon Ball Z GT Goku 02:58, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
- Not to mention that during the Other World tournament saga, Cell and the Ginyu Force were impaled on the needle mountain and yet survived (I mean, I can understand Cell surviving due to his regeneration abilities, but the Ginyu Force?) Weedle McHairybug 03:00, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
so you go by which one you like --Ponds11 23:42, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
Instead of being both, it could just that if you are already dead (or dead AND in Other World) that it is harder to actually die again. This would explain how the Ginyu force survived being impaled. The only thing is, what would actually be able to kill an already dead person (other than complete disintigration or maybe decapitation)? It also could be when King Kai says that when dead, a body can't killed again he doesn't mean the body isn't able to be damaged. If a dead person's body was completely destroyed, they'd stop existing.Nothinglord (talk) 21:49, January 12, 2013 (UTC)
