Re: Legendary Super Saiyan is Super Saiyan 2.

I've thought for years now that the 'Grade' forms, Broli and Kale's Legendary form, and the proper Super Saiyan 2 are all basically just branching-pathways of the same form, tapping into that same "beyond Super Saiyan" pool of power in each their own way. It mostly just depends on what kin...

This is already evolved a bit as its own thread, but in the future, please use the dedicated fan-made power levels thread for discussions like this. "Formulas" for stuff like Fusion definitely count as part of that. That said... I don't think there even is any one "formula" you c...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Whether tracetaro covers it or not doesn't matter since I know it'll be inferior to the anime version like always anyway. I'm a little late, and don't want to encourage mini-modding, but... they're right. Comments like this one and your others like it are needlessly vindictive and only serve to sta...

Re: Source for Freeza = 200 million V-Jump?

Yeah, this has gotta be nothing from nowhere, almost certainly made up by someone with an agenda and most likely a very flimsy understanding of Japanese. The fact that it shows the 200 and 120 million numbers written out in full with a bunch of zeroes, instead of using the Japanese characters for......

Re: Who is the strongest (living) character at the end of the original series?

Toriyama already answered that . It was months after the manga serialization was finished. In case you were wondering, it’s Goku. Technically, the in-quotes direct answer from Toriyama only says he thinks Goku's the coolest. The part about him being "the always pure strongest in the universe,&...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

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...
