During my time off while my computer was being fixed, I had the opportunity to read a many fan comic and a few fanfics as well. And well, there are some things that just ANNOY my about people making DB OC's. Things that completely ruin the fancomic/fics acceptability to the DB Universe. So, I decided to create a couple no-break rules for creating a DB OC.
1) Pure- Blooded Saiyans ALWAYS have black eyes and black hair. Akira Toriyama stated in the Early Androids Saga and the Cell Saga, from Vegeta himself, that 1- All Saiyans have black hair, and 2- pure saiyan's hair doesn't grow. Any hair colors you've seen in the anime do not apply, as the anime repeatedly contradicts the original manga.
2) Regular japanese, english, etc etc etc names DO NOT APPLY to DB OC's. All Dragon Ball characters are named after a pun of some sort. Below is a list of currently used puns from Toriyama's original manga:
Pure Blooded Saiyans - Vegetables
Ginyu Force - Dairy products
Race of Hera - impure qualities (arrogance, vanity, cruelty, brutality, etc)
Makyan (Garlic Jr.'s race) - Spices
Nameks - Slugs
Icejins - things that are cold
Freeza soldiers - fruits
King Piccolo's sons - musical instruments
Briefs family - underwear
Videl's friends - school utensils
Majins/ Babiddi's minions/ race - things that are magical
Following this guide, names like these SHOULD NEVER appear in a DB fan work: Shawn, Jake, Danielle, Michael, John, Stephanie, or any other name you would commonly hear. And, while they may sound cool, unless the character is based off of a god, japanese god names or mystical creature names (ryujin, Enma, Kaio, Tsukuyomi, etc) should not be used unless the character is, in fact, based on that god or creature. If your character fits into one of the above catagories, they should follow the appropriate pun.
3) The Dragon Ball World does not have common cities that we see in the real world (France, England, Japan, etc). DB Absalon was guilty of this. Visit the Dragon Ball Wiki for names of appropriate DB based cities and planets for your character to come from (West City, East City, North City, South City, etc etc).
These are 3 NO BREAK RULES when creating a DB OC. Please use them.
