Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

Has anyone written a M13 in Trunks' timeline yet? Both M13 and XV2 pretty much confirm that's how Trunks got his sword in the anime continuity (not like it ever needed an explanation but hey), but has anyone attempted to write a full story about it? I haven't actually written anything (yet), but I'...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Did Cell transformations has multiplier, ass power up or only additional to his own PL? If anything, they're probably "pre-programmed" power boosts, at least for the Android twins themselves. When he liquefies and absorbs all his Earthling victims, then that'd be either a direct power add...

Re: How strong was Goku REALLY at the start of Dragonball?

The power level of 10 works fine. Remember that power level numbers only represent someone's amount of raw ki. At this early point in the series, ki/PL wasn't the driving force in battles yet. One of the guidebooks even points out that it was Goku being a Saiyan which gave him a big extra advantage ...

Can someone share Dragonball Z Movie Villans Power Levels? I want see your opinion. I have an entire 'Movies and Specials' list, and keep a link to it right in my signature. That's the one I try most to make fun to read, but most of the numbers are actually halfway-serious placements. Trunks being ...

Trunks being stronger than Goku, at least from when he was last seen in action on Namek? I kind of assumed that was a given.

This is not the place to actually hold a "debate" on this stuff. If it's actually worth discussing (and I have my doubts about that), then make a new thread for it.

Re: Should SSJB & SSJBE's Names Be Changed To SSJG2 & SSJG3 Respectively?

Having halfway-unique names is one of the few things the god-forms have that sets them apart in any way. Taking that away would just give them an even worse image than they already have.

Re: Cell Games Piccolo

The terminology that Cell used to point out Vegeta and Trunks fighting back against the Cell Juniors wasn't an exclusive one. Meaning just because they're the ones he pointed out, it doesn't mean they're the ONLY ones who can do so. It's more like "EVEN Vegeta and Trunks" rather than "...

Re: Cell Games Piccolo

I typically consider him to be on the same level as "Super" Vegeta was against Stage-2 Cell. That's plenty for him to be considered "on a whole new level" like Goku described him, and for him to at least remain on his feet against a Cell Junior like he did. But at the same time i...

Re: Gohan SSJ vs Gohan SSJ2 breakdown

Yeah, mastering Super Saiyan and fixing its stamina issues doesn't mean you don't still get tired from actual fighting. It just means you don't get extra tired from merely maintaining the form itself at the same time.

Re: Gohan SSJ vs Gohan SSJ2 breakdown

It seems more than a bit dishonest to back your preconceptions with anime-specific guidebooks, when the anime outright states that Gohan was a SS2 in that fight. So? If nothing else, despite Toei omitting them these guidebooks are still saying that the sparks should be there. Daizenshuu #2 never sa...

Re: Gohan SSJ vs Gohan SSJ2 breakdown

Guess I've got a new thread to keep a close eye on... Well, here's the way I see it. Basically, I think it actually ended up being a minor manga-to-anime difference. In the manga, Gohan was only ever a Super Saiyan 2 once, against Kibito at the tournament, because that's the only time he was drawn ...

Re: Toyotaro needs to be let go/fired

You are aware that Toyotaro gets direct feedback and approval on his drafts from Toriyama, right? He's not just some renegade writer doing whatever he wants. If you just don't like the direction or details of how both of them are handling the manga's story, fine, but Toyotaro's committed no narrativ...

There is? I can't recall any instance of it being without lightning. There's a few odd panels here and there, usually when the character is either drawn at an extreme distance, momentarily powered down, or something like that. You could probably count the number of such panels on one hand. Not even...

Re: Can SSJ Grade Forms 2 & 3 Be Stacked On Top Of FPSSJ?

I don't think so. I believe they get replaced with the capacity for Super Saiyan 2 instead, because the 'Grade' forms are just flawed attempts at tapping into that same reserve of "beyond Super Saiyan" power. Mastering the initial SS1 form is laying the proper groundwork to transcend it pr...

Re: The case of Tenshinhan origin ???

Tenshinhan having a "godlike" trait doesn't make him switch categories and count as an actual lower god now instead of an Earthling. Goku and Vegeta have "godlike" traits now too ever since training under Whis, but that doesn't make switch from being Saiyans to being gods.

Rather than get too caught up in the exact whys and hows, I prefer to think of it along more thematic lines. Freeza was the strongest natural being.

Re: Do Super Saiyan Multipliers Matter

The official multipliers are still a thing, and while the folks in charge don't go to great lengths to spotlight them or write the story around them, they do still subtly acknowledge them on occasion. I know there's been a few offhand mentions in DBS, at least one where Goku went SS2 and was said to...
