Who needs it more though, Goku or Krillin (or Gohan who low-key still needs it)?
In my experience? Krillin.
Goku and Gohan both still have people who stick by them and defend them, get a ton of love in the fan works department too. Art, fics, etc. Often of the NSFW variety to boot. No major shortage of love for them even despite the BS.
Krillin… not so much. Guy is one of the universal punching bags, often having people who like him but won’t admit it for fear of being mocked or harassed for it. Hence why I typically focus on him more than anyone.
Though honestly, the character I think might need it THE most (but I personally SEE less of it) is Chi-Chi.
