Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is missing the series' infamous 'It's Over 9000' meme, with DBZ: Kakarot not including the popular meme in its Saiyan Saga.
Meme? You mean the scene? Memes didn't exist in 1989.
True. But it did turn into a meme years later
Memes existed throughout human history. Internet memes are a subcategory. The term 'meme' was coined by Richard Dawkins in his book "The Selfish Gene", which came out in 1976.
Funny thing is the actual line is "Over 8,000" and Vegeta's supposed to be more extremely annoyed than shrieking. That's the bit that became the meme.
Jokes and memes fade and stop being funny eventually.
Except that it's not a joke or a meme. It's an actual scene from the show. There's nothing funny about it. Vegeta says this when he's reading Goku's power level for the first time. That's it. Jokes and memes came later and started adding it to all kinds of other things. But it's not a joke at all.
Actually, no. He originally says "over 8000", 9000 was a random change. https://i.imgur.com/P3V520m...
@ShadowWolf712 Okay, in the original Japanese dub, fine, he says 8000. In the English Funimation dub, which MOST people in the US saw, it's over 9000. It doesn't change the point of any of my comment. It's not a meme.
Its missing a lot of other scenes but yeah "9000" is kinda iconic
Why would they put a scene that was a translation and dub mistake in the original anime? It's 8000 and Vegeta is only slightly annoyed, not angry.
THAT'S IT! EVERYONE DIES! -Vegeta
Wow I haven't got to that part but really ?!! They had one job in that part. Get the 9000 scene in there. Should have been top priority during development.
Yea I was bummed that they took that scene out...
Nappa: Vegeta! What does the scouter say about his power level? Vegeta: IT'S 1006... Nappa: Wait really? Vegeta: Yep, Kick his Ass Nappa! *Nappa Defeated in Pain* Vegeta: Wait this can't be right... Nappa: I thought you said his Power Level was 1006? Vegeta: I had the scouter upside down, it's over 9000.
I wouldn't call it infamous. Famous sounds about right. :)
because it was over 8000. that just funimation spending money.
I was looking forward to the scene and disappointed when it wasn't there :(
That's because he really says it's over 8000. The dub crews often butcher the script.
Meh I’m okay with that as long as they stick true to the original source material I can do without a joke or two.
In my opinion that was the best part, the whole power calculation aspect brought into the anime was kind of cool.
