While many fans of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball series know everything about main characters like Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, Frieza and so forth, the franchise's longest-running character besides Goku himself frequently gets overlooked: Bulma. While Bulma has been overshadowed and sidelined by the introduction of more powerful villains, particularly since Dragon Ball Z , she has played a huge role in the story since the very first issue of the manga and the first episode of the anime. Bulma may not have new Super Saiyan transformations every month, but she was the one who started the quest for the Dragon Balls, invented the Dragon Radar, and created most of the machines used in Dragon Ball , including an actual working time machine. Because Dragon Ball has a lot of battles, it's undeniable the two super-powered Saiyans Goku and Vegeta get talked about the most, while other fighters like Krillin, Tien, and Yamcha have become increasingly unimportant and regulated to supporting cast.
The standards of animated television are a bit different in Japan, and unlike in America, there isn't still a stigma of adults watching cartoons.

One of the big taboos with kids cartoons is showing a kid in mortal danger, which is kind of hard to avoid with Dragon Ball.

This was done by editing out his tears, implying that his being kidnapped was less dangerous and scary as it originally appeared.
