The Dragon Ball Z movies are largely recognized as non-canon, but not because people don't love them. The fact is, almost every single one of the Z-era films included events, character match-ups, or other details that couldn't possibly fit in with the established canon storyline. Dragon Ball Super has now made certain elements introduced in the movies canon (namely Gogeta, Broly, and Paragus) by reimagining them in the DBS: Broly feature. Now, this has gotten the fanbase excited for what other movie-only characters may get their own canon reimagining in the future. One of the most common hopes is that Frieza's brother Cooler, who was the antagonist of two movies, will eventually make it into the official story. Cooler is a dynamic villain with a cool design in his first appearance that gets even better when he returns as Meta-Cooler in the sequel. The storyline does take a lot from the structure of Frieza's defeat and return as Mecha Frieza, but that doesn't stop the design from being a memorable aspect of DBZ's history.

The Dragon Ball Super Card Game 2021 Anniversary Box is now available. Stay tuned for openings and product reviews of this collection.
