What are his intentions?
This black cat must've come to
Earth with a reason of some sort, so I have proposed a couple of
theories as to why he has come here. You can feel free to email
me some of your ideas
about why he has come here as well.
- He wants to spread his massive intelligence throughout
- He wants to slowly build an empire that is capable of
building death machines and take over the earth.
- He wants to see Dr. Briefs in the future.
- He wants to destroy the Earth and all of its inhabitants.
- He just wants to be that one mysterious figure in history
that is the cause of a lot of major events in history (you
know, kinda like the Forrest Gump of DBZ)
- He wants to kill the current Kami and takeover in his
- (sent in from Pmaster152@aol.com) I believe that TBCODBS is actually the
true God of the DBZ universe. The Egyptians
recognized this, and worshipped him as a God. My theory
is that he is just staying on Dr. Briefs shoulder to get
a better idea of what is going on in the world he has
created, he can see what is going on from watching like
Kami does, but he wants to really get a feel for it.
So he sits on Dr. Briefs' shoulder and takes it all in.
- (sent in from Tufty X email withdrawn
at request) I believe that he came to Earth
looking for a bride but found that all the cats were far
too thick to be able to fit in on his world. In his
search for the intellegent cat he met Dr. Briefs and
decided that he could be of use to him. Together they
struggled to make a machine that would, once the right
one was found, increase any cat's intellgence that he
chose. Unfortunatly during this time, Dr. Briefs had
Bulma, and she was intellegent, beautiful and had
attitude, exactly what TBCODBS was looking for. He is now
waiting on Earth for the right moment to confess his
undying love for Bulma.
- (sent in from MaxWalrus@aol.com) I believe that his mission is purely
reconnaissance. He was sent merely to investigate, to see
if humans were ready for faster than light travel and
trade and interact with other beings througout the galaxy.
- (sent in from SmeePupp13@aol.com) Scratch really is the strongest fighter
in the universe. He surpasses gokou like it was nothing.
His intellect is far greater than anyone could fathom,
though he keeps that on the Down Lo'. Figured out all of
the galaxy's problems, he has, but he doesn't want to
draw attention to himself. Scratch wants people to think
he's just a black cat that sits on Dr. Briefs's shoulder.
If he did show his true skill, arrogant people, like
Yamcha, would try to exploit him.
- (sent in from TwinSwordArtist1@aol.com) I believe that it is not just something
that gives ideas. My theory is it is a parasite that
takes over the minds and bodies of what it attaches to.
It wants to reproduce, but in order for it to reproduce
it must use a human body and send it's spores into the
newborn child, as well as the mother. That is why it lets
the perverted ideas happen.
- (sent in from erik_hill) I think that Tama-Sama is on Earth because he
found his perfect toys. He uses the Z-warriors to fight,
they get all their power from him, and they dont know it.
It started off small and boring, so he creates bigger and
bigger villians for them to fight, and makes everything
put on the line, and they just barely win. It's like a
movie for him to watch, and even somewhat exciting to see
what the "fools" will do with their power, and
all the special moves they do and such.
- (sent in from Silver_Poo_Poo@zanesvilleohio.net) I think the little black cat just likes
the smell of Dr. Briefs's hair shampoo (it's probably one
of those dandriff preventers or some good quality stuff).
That is why he always is on his shoulder, he's just
trying to sniff it. You know how cats just love new
smells. He also likes gadgets, little gears, and moving
stuff so thats why he always helps Dr. Briefs work on
things. He doesn't really do much, just watches. My cats
are like that too. Whenever I do stuff or work on things
they just sit there motionless and watch. Oh well, I
guess thats just another theory and we will never really
- (sent in from Candeis@webtv.com) I think the black cat is to the DBZ
universe as the Watcher is to the Marvel universe.
He's there to watch events happen. He doesn't
interfere because that would break some understood code
of his people. As to why he sits on Dr. Briefs' shoulder....well,
maybe he just likes the guy.
- (sent in from firstname.lastname@example.org) I believe that this cat
is not an alien, but a genetically engineered being
produced by Doctor Gero from cells of Karin, Puar, and my
cat Fubu. Look at the stats: He's able to cling to Dr.
Briefs's shoulder no matter what and he seems to shift
forms after Android #16 dies. You see, after being put on
#16's shoulder he steals #16's energy and becomes Semi-Perfect
Scratch. However, he needs to absorb Karin, Puar, and Dr.
Briefs to become Perfect Scratch.
I have no idea what his true intentions are. I don't think
that anyone does. It will probably never be revealed to the loyal
DBZ fans outside of the infamous "Toriyama Circle" (TM).
I can only speculate as to why he is here. I don't think Shenlon
himself knows what his intentions are... you know maybe if I
email toriyama.org everyday asking for info on the black cat,
they'll take the "TBCODBS-File" out of Akira Toriyama's
Sacred Vault of DBZ Secrets(TM).
