Is there any other manga/anime character popular enough to be an ambassador of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics? Or to have their own officially recognized day in Japan?

Sailor Moon, Naruto, Luffy, and Astro Boy are also ambassadors for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Kinnikuman also has a holiday officially recognized in Japan.

Certainly... that is if you don't count Pikachu.

@ltbrd: The way Chi-Chi and Tien fight look somewhat similar but Tien is more like the Praying Mantis like I said in the OP.

Goku's fighting style also resembled the Monkey style Shaolin Kung Fu when he was younger.

@ltbrd: Mr. Satan's fighting style is the only one that looks like Traditional Karate tbh. Videl is closer to a MMA fighter and Chi-Chi is more Tai-Chi.

@nickzambuto: Best post I read all week

Thank you. I hope this is what you were looking for.

Have anything to say about how Gohan fights in comparison to others?

...or the clown who thinks Goku and Chi-Chi fight the same?

One complaint regarding the fight choreography in the series is how everyone seems to fight the same. One user even went as far as to say Chi-Chi fights the same way as Goku... but then again she thinks Bulma and Launch would be good picks for FighterZ (a game that has teleporting, dashing mechanics, and high-speed combat) so what does she know?

Anyway, this complaint understandable to some degree as most DB fighters are fist fighters but I would easily contend Yamcha and Tien are very distinct in the way they fight from a visual standpoint alone. The way Yamcha fights is wild and showy utilizing open-palm strikes while Tien empathizes speed and has the fists of a praying mantis.

What do y'all have to say on this?

@waxonator: No. Out of all the anime I've watched, DBZ and Pokemon are pretty much the only ones they know.

I don't talk to them much about anime either.

@mrx1122: Dragon Ball has only made $5.5 billion dollars to date (I think) which is lower than the Marvel roster.

Still disagree with @waxonator on the series not being well-known by the general public. I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't know what it is. Even my parents know what it is (even if only through DBZ) and they don't watch anime.
