Bushroot is a villain from the ancient cartoon Darkwing Duck. He was the recipient of Darkwing’s Weed Whacker intro line, now immortalized as the title of this comic.
Surely you know Tux, the Linux mascot. Vash the Stampede from the anime Trigun is the equally terrifying Humanoid Typhoon, who has sworn to never kill. I meet so many people who say “Oh yeah, I love Trigun!” Then I ask them how many episodes they’ve seen, and the answer is usually somewhere in the single digits. Don’t get me wrong, I love Trigun, but you have to see the whole thing in order to really make a judgement. DBZ it is not. Dian Keto is someone I’m not terribly familiar with. Searching for him, however, brings up many relevant links.
