Without spoiling, my protags DO outsmart some crazy powerful characters... although most of the time it's usually fate or angels helping out with St. Peter pulling the strings (although the fun thing is seeing how the main protags go about fulfilling these prophecies). Had Naota resurrected in the DBZ universe, then both him and Nikado would be training to be the strongest. The scary part about Naota is he taught himself to do crazy unbelievable stuff that no other stick figure has seen before with his body. I can see Naota going toe-to-toe with Goku and possibly winning. Free will is a subject in my story and Naota and Nikado are just pillars of iron. They have a goal, they WILL attain it.
Quincy's an interesting case where like... he had a HUGE handicap and I'm not talking about super powers. The interesting thing about his character is he's supposedly THE superhero in his dimension. He's Superman, Spider-Man, and Batman rolled in one. Hence the name "The Remarkable Red Giant". But (again without giving away), he isn't supposed to be the Red Giant (the last Red Giant was 10 feet tall, Q is FIVE...).... so I can picture him being just be " a good Samaritan" in these three universes. He'd be the Gamma 2 (only slightly weaker) in the DBZ Universe, he'd be one of those ninjas with an arc dedicated to him but he'll die in a filler arc with the main characters being like "we'll remember him", and he's whatever Bleach is about. I dunno. I don't see him lasting. Kinda like an actual red giant (heh). But just like a red giant, his impact will be felt across whatever star system he's in.
Funny thing about the "Red Giant"... his debut story isn't even about him... and neither is HIS story :v
