Again, deliver a proper definition of jobber before we can discuss this.

Owen Hughes
Owen Hughes

The term jobber comes from wrestling. When they want to show how strong a certain wrestler is, they have him fight a guy who basically lets him win.

Wyatt Cox
Wyatt Cox

With that definition none of the characters are jobbers because none of them intentionally lost.
Want to try again?

Sebastian Morales

That's exactly where the term jobber comes from, retard. /a/'s come up with several different definitions which is why there are constant arguments about what a jobber is.

Nolan Sanders

That's exactly where the term jobber comes from, retard.
I know.

/a/'s come up with several different definitions
Which is why I am asking for a definition for this thread.

Your chosen definition doesn't help. In fact, it's completely useless. If you think it's the right one because it's the original, good for you. But then your posting this thread is shitposting because by your own definition none of these characters are jobbers.
Are you retarded?

Cooper Baker

Going by the definition used when referring to anime/manga, a jobber is a seemingly strong character who more often than not loses his/her fights to make the character he/she is fighting seem all the more stronger. It's a lazy way for the author to make a villain appear overpowered. Take a a character (usually a friend of the protagonist who's supposed to be near the MC's level in terms of strength) and then have him/her lose in a completely one-sided fight against whoever the new villain is. This in turn makes the villain appear out of the MC's league by beating someone (allegedly) within the MC's skill range, thus calling for a training arc, thus leading to a fight where the MC kicks said villain's shit in, thus leading to this entire sequence occurring in the next arc; lather, rinse, repeat.

By this definition the only jobber in ops image is vegeta

It's been made clear that nobody agrees what a jobber is you stupid idiot, that's part of what gets discussed in these threads. I was just providing the original definition.

Trust morons like you to always show up here.

When you are asked for a "proper definition" then that is evidently an attempt to start the discussion you talked about. When you instead only bring the original definition you are blocking the discussion and being an ass. Can't you even tell what is going on?

he does fuck all the entire series.

Bentley Jenkins

To "job" is to lose as a means of proving another characters' strength.

A jobber is someone who's job is to lose in order to show how strong another character is.

Gavin Richardson

Samuel Rivera

I don't care if Ryoga's a jobber, he is best boy and did nothing wrong.

Henry Long

He was the second strongest MC and I don't think he lost any real fight where Ranma wasn't blown away too.

Thomas Lopez

Jobber on Sup Forums has always mean a strong character who is supposed to win most of his fights but who keep losing. A lot of time it's because the plot and the writting are shit.
For exemple, gilgamesh not using EA and losing like a shit when it really matters or accelerator not throwing someting at the mach 20 in the face of touman or kihara, killing them instantly.

Nicholas Jenkins

The ultimate jobber.

Cooper Mitchell

it's kakashi

the dude that always beat him

Jonathan Barnes
Jonathan Barnes

That's a stupid definition.

A jobber is basically someone who loses to show the power of the next major villain. Hell, technically in DBZ Freeza was a jobber since he lost easily to Trunks to show how much of a threat the Androids would be.

Technically speaking jobber should only be used for someone who does this repeatedly, so Freeza was actually a shit example. Vegeta might be a better one from DBZ (Ginyu Force, Freeza, Androids, Perfect Cell, and Buu).

But you got the gist of what I was saying to you? That's really all that matters, as long as you could comprehend and understand what I was trying to convey to you then it doesn't matter how poor my grammar really was.

Isaac Williams

What is job? baby stop breaking me, no more.

Bentley Jenkins
Bentley Jenkins

He jobbed once. That's not the ultimate jobber.

And his fight against Accelerator doesn't count. He wasn't setting up a new villain, he was the final boss of the arc being beaten.

Gabriel Clark

You're using the real definition, that's not the same we use here.
Yours doesn't fit with most of the characters famous for being jobbers.

Jace Butler

But you got the gist of what I was saying to you? That's really all that matters,
I disagree.
Now I won't fault you for your trouble with the English grammar. My own mastery of it is far from perfect. So long as we both try that shall be enough.
But OP did not try.
And people did not get what he meant. They are still asking what a jobber is.

Blake Butler

Saber

Unless you're referring to Zero where she's a total jobber

Rused and outskilled by fucking Deermud and generally acting retarded in their fight
Can't refute Iskander's lousy king arguments
Can't finish off Gilles on multiple occasions
BTFO'd by Lancelot (more fair cause he had an anti dragon NP)
generally gets put down by the rest of the cast and acts OoC

Then it's incorrect to call them jobbers.

Jobbers fulfill a very important purpose in storytelling. They create tension and a sense of challenge.

Brandon Rivera

Did you watch Fate/Zero?

Jose Long
Jose Long

Jobber is a strong character that originally is equal, stronger, or rival to the MC at the beginning of the story but then eventually starts to lose a lot and no longer appear as strong as they used to be for no real reason other than to make the MC look better in comparison.

If the 'jobber' was really strong in the beginning but then loses every single fight afterwards while MC keeps winning against similarly difficult opponents, then DING DING DING we have ourselves a jobber.

Blake Lewis

Its pretty fuckin simple. If someone is extremely powerful but messes around when they fight instead of just ending it they are a jobber. Accelerator could have just thrown a storage container at touma, gilg could have just kicked emiya's skull in, used ea, his armor etc.

Don't forget Kakyoin who loses all his fights when he sets foot into Egypt.

Parker Ward

Great timing OP, beacuase JJBA part 4 is full of jobbers.
Okuyasu will have a quality stand be wasted for this.
Jotaro will go from stopping time an killing Dio, to almost being killed by a rat. Effectively making Dio look like complete shit as an antagonist.
Everything after part 3 Jotaro is him jobbing, until part 6 where he jobs his last job.

Jackson Torres

Speaking of Dio.

Villains hardly are jobbers.
Final villains are never jobbers.

A jobber must build a hype for someone else, they must make that someone else look like a challenge.
The final villain isn't meant to build a hype because after them the series is over.

Why it's so hard to understand?

Henry Nelson
Henry Nelson

they're not jobbers
Yes they fucking are.
It's not like professional wrestlers WANT to lose either. But if it's written in the script you do it.
Same with these jobbing little shits, they only exist to show how much stronger someone else is. Especially Junkcelerator and Fajita.

Colton Powell
Colton Powell

This.
He could tango with people moving at light speed early in the series yet mach 30 was a threat to him in the final arc.

John Martin

Most people on Sup Forums use "jobber/jobbing" to describe characters who have been established as powerful/threatening failing to perform as a threat in the story.
Typically by losing to a character Sup Forums thinks ought to be weaker than them, or losing to a new character to establish that new character as a threat.

Of course the term has become pretty much meaningless with overuse.
"This character is a villain and I'm going to shit on them for losing to the heroic underdog/hero who got a powerup at the last minute to defeat them" is fucking retarded, of course the villains are going to lose at the end of most stories. If you don't like how they lost you should be complaining about the author being a shitty writer.

Kumagawa's actually the opposite of that. He's supposed to lose everytime yet finds a way to win, then loses or ends it in a draw.

The only time he really lost was against medaka.

Ceaser is the biggest memer in the whole series.
At least we see LisaLisa kill something. Ceaser loses LITERALLY every time he tries to fight someone.

Kumagawa only has to lose in his own rules.

If Kumagawa decides that he will defeat 100 people in a game, he can easily defeat 99 of them.
If Kumagawa decides that he will win a fight without taking a single step, he can still win the fight as long as he is forced to move.

-Killed all the Kiri anbu that were after Rin and Kakashi
-Killed one of the Jinchuuriki along with Deidara in his Tobi days
-Killed Konan
-Made fun of the 5 kage
-Fought Kakashi, Gai and Naruto at the same time. They could barely do shit against him.
-Then he killed half the alliance.
-As an incomplete Jinchuuriki he fought Naruto, Sasuke, Minato and Tobirama, they could barely do shit against him(Naruto had to TnJ).
-His Kamui was extremely useful against Kaguya, he should've been dead at the time but still kept going.
-Even after dying he gave Kakashi the Ultimate Power up.
