Had anyone else been hoping for Goku's defeat during Super?

All the villains and side- characters are canon fodder for Goku and sometimes Vegeta, I know that the outcome will 100% be Goku winning so it lacks a huge amount of tension. Goku was turned into a dumbass in Super so not only was he extremely unlikable, but his over- confidence and indifferent feelings to every other character on the show is what ticks me off the most, I just hoped that someone would eventually humble Goku.

To be honest, maybe. A longass show such as Dragon Ball can never turn out good if one, maximum two characters monopolize it. OK, at the end of the day Goku is still the winner, but at least don't nerf the side characters. Not everyone is a fan of Goku, or even his sidekick Vegeta (who's been nerfed as well). There are other characters that some of us grew to love, and for good reason. Be it their personality, strength or development. Give us some excitement and joy as well, make them worth, have them catch up a bit with the MCs, play some important roles during arcs, have exciting power ups as well.

What they've done to Goku is unjust as well. Imagine rooting for him since the beginning of the show, for the little, adorable and justice-loving fellow he was, and then see how he turns out in Super. Such a big disappointment and flanderization of the iconic childhood hero.

I think Goku being Goku just gives people more of a reason to like other characters. I mean in Dragon Ball he was great but he was a kid. DBZ, I quickly started liking Vegeta and Piccolo way more. In Super... Well, Goku is just a token to move the plot to me.

The post pretty much breaks the code on how to make a Shonen Anime/Manga

To answer, yes I was hoping that they would drop Goku and let someone take the reigns, but like what Beerus said because of Goku being Goku, it made the characters look better and likeable.

Goku will always be the poster boy cause way too many people love him for whatever reason. They’re not going to chance their ratings on letting someone else take over.

Although the manga is doing Vegeta some justice so maybe there’s hope later on but, ye. Super was always going to be the Goku show.
