So you may think I'm about to go into Yamcha bashing mode... but nah, enough people out there do enough of that. hahaha
Sure, compared to the Saiyans and the main villains he is pretty weak, but lets face it... he is only human after all..
Hell, when he was first introduced in Dragonball I was actually a fan. That Wolf Fang Fist was super cool at the time.
And does anyone remember the fact he was able to turn the gravity chamber off without actually being crushed? He's no Vegeta after all and for a human it was quite an impressive feat.
But over time everyone else in the series just seemed to skyrocket in power level and poor little Yamcha just got left behind... Wonder if it surprised anyone that Bulma left him for Vegeta?
I still can't get over how much Yamcha and Gohan look alike though... perhaps Chichi had a weak moment while Goku was away training... or dead... who knows? But on the other hand I guess Gohan wouldn't be able to go ssj if he weren't Goku's son, so that theory is shot. In closing, Yamcha's not all bad... he just couldn't keep up is all.

I actually agree. Yes I do make fun if the guy but once in a while I say things like 'for a human he's not bad'
so sad
@ nberry1620 I agree he does get ragged on too much but.... it is really hard not too.... Especially considering other characters like Mr. Satan and Yajerobe. Both are weaker than Yamcha (even combined) but technically have done more to save the planet than Yamcha ever had. However, Yamcha still has done more than Chiaotzu. So.... at least he has that.....
Yamcha had always been pretty useless, not even a second or third banana in DBZ. Basically he was the guy they used to make the villain seem stronger as he was severely beaten or was used in other comparisons to show how strong other characters were in proportion to him a normal-ish human martial artist. Whether it was to show how much stronger Goku was by either a) Goku defeating whoever beat the crap out of Yamcha b) having him defeat minor villains who Goku had already surpassed therefore making the past villains seem weak or c) in the case of the gravity chamber showing how much stronger Vegeta was by nearly killing himself with a training he was to weak to perform. His one purpose from the beginning was to show the power differential between the main characters and your run of the mill shmuck.
