Re: Help with a Saiyan name

What counts as a "normal human name" in your fanfic's context? Because in the Dragon Ball world, we have Earthlings named after things like underwear, Chinese food dishes, and literally just a Japanese slang term for "boobs."

Re: Why I believe Raditz's level is 1200 instead of 1500

Y'all are aware that Yamcha's 1,480 also comes solely from the guidebooks rather than the manga, right?

Re: Why I believe Raditz's level is 1200 instead of 1500

I think Kaboom's point is not about putting official statements and fan theories in different standards. He is focusing on individuals who have their own theories in higher regard in relation to official statements , which contradicts the idea that they should be even. Exactly. There's nothing wron...

Re: Why I believe Raditz's level is 1200 instead of 1500

I just want to reiterate the important message that sentiments of "I don't think this fits" or "that's not the way I see it" do not equate to the tidbit in question actually being wrong. If Toriyama wrote Nappa's line as, "but the Saibaimen have powers of 1,200 each! Even Ra...

Re: Why I believe Raditz's level is 1200 instead of 1500

- The Japanese word that Nappa used to compare the Saibaimen to Raditz doesn't really mean "exactly, mathematically equal," it means more along the lines of "comparable" or "on the same general level." Toriyama himself said in his notes to the anime staff that Raditz's ...

Re: Did the Daizenshuu contradict itself regarding which form Gohan was using?

I dunno about that. Even before Goku applied the specific names to them, there was still plenty else that labeled SS2 as a distinct and separate state above regular Super Saiyan. When Gohan used it at the tournament for Kibito, he specifically said he was going to "become a Super Saiyan that ha...

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

I'll assume "BOD" means "Beginning of DragonBall" a.k.a. their first appearances, and my gut says that Kuririn would win. He was more of a contender compared to Goku and had more in the way of proper training even before Muten Roshi took him in. Really? 'Cause I remember Yamcha ...

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Current Roshi (DBS) vs King Kai? Who wins? I don't care about Super, but when I finally got around to adding Resurrection F to my movies power levels list, I gave Muten Roshi a PL of 5,000. That's comfortably over Kaio's 3,500, so I guess Roshi would win that one. BOD Krillin vs BOD Yamcha I'll ass...

Re: Did the Daizenshuu contradict itself regarding which form Gohan was using?

I don't believe so... After recently putting everything together, I think it's actually just a manga/anime difference. While the original manga's artwork pretty clearly portrayed Gohan as just a Super Saiyan 1 against Dabra, the anime kind of did its own thing and seemed to intentionally make him a ...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

If during the Buu saga... Super Saiyan Gotenks = 10 Super Saiyan 2 Gotenks = 20 Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks = 80 Then what would Super Saiyan 3 Goku be at? I think Gotenks was a "work in progress" of sorts before his RoSaT session, after which he was finally a match for Fat Boo with SS1 and ob...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

I don't know how much more simply it can be explained... the Elder Kaioshin's ritual was a dormant power unlock, and so Gohan's strength is a direct result of his own particular amount of dormant power. That part doesn't change whether it's a permanent new base form as the manga portrays it, or a tr...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Some people may disconsider other might others might embrace it, but what multiplier would you give to Mystic/Ultimate? None at all, it inherently has no widely-applicable "multiplier" because it's an unlock of dormant power, and that's different for everyone. Gohan ended up being massive...

Re: Theory: Gohan lost his "Mystic" form when he died in the Buu saga

Super isn't really doing anything different than what practically every Toei-heralded project has always done... Contrary to how the manga portrayed it as a permanent change, the animated stuff has treated "Ultimate" like a transformation for Gohan ever since Z movie 13. GT's the only thin...

Re: Did Goku lie about Super Buu?

Goku says that he couldn't beat Super Buu, but Gohan could, but when Gotenks unfuses and he is Buuiccolo, Goku says he can beat him. But that form is stronger than Super Buu, so what gives?! I'm like 99.999% sure this is a dub-only line you're referring to, where Goku tells Piccolo-Boo something li...

Re: How strong is Base Goku?

Is Oob stated to be equal to Goku? Yes he is, so your argument about Goku holding back against him is complete bias. No if ands or buts. Don't care about the rest of your nonsense. Taking into account the manga and anime isn't a "stance". It's the default if you're following the story sin...
