Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Yet another incredibly long catch-up post incoming... Super Saiyan Kaio Ken Ginyu Runs the Ultimate Gauntlet of Buu Saga Power. Let's see... Ginyu's normal 120,000 power multiplied 50 times by Super Saiyan puts him at 6 million. Then with the Kaio-Ken levels on top of that... SSJ Ginyu KKx23 V Base ...

Re: Am I the only one that thinks SSJ4 is more innovative than Super's transformations?

Not at all. I liked the red-haired Super Saiyan God form, and how its design with the skinny frame and ethereal fire-aura evoked the mysterious new power sources that Goku was using rather than just "MORE BULK, MORE GOLD, MORE POWER." Super Saiyan Blue would have done well to keep some of ...

Because with something that has as many different criss-crossing products, realities, re-tellings, and spin-offs as Dragon Ball... it kind of needs to be.

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

I tracked down when it was posted and asked about last time, and yeah, Viz's version of that intro page is almost completely different, and the bit about Goten and Trunks was an embellishment on their part. http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=969068#p969068 Long story short, it's almost ...

Re: Is Dragon ball GT Canon?

Yes and no.

GT is both canon and non-canon.

Super is also both canon and non-canon.

Likewise, the various movies and specials are all both canon and non-canon.

Even the original manga is both canon and non-canon.

Dragon Ball does not have an official, authoritatively defined central canon.

Re: What is Videls power level?

I'd honestly place Videl's power level as something around 20 or 30, really. Remember that "power level" as graded by numbers is just a raw measurement of ki, not necessarily what you do with it. She was already promising and naturally talented in that department, surpassing Mr. Satan and ...

Re: King Cold can transform

There is no official canon in the franchise. The manga. Even if you just say "the manga" then that still immediately raises other questions that start to snowball into something complicated. Which version of the original manga, the original WSJ/Tankobon version or the Kanzenban edition wi...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I've got to admit that the Elite 3 version of the crossover produced more laughs from me than the more played-straight TFS version. But mainly because I was already such a big fan of Pokémon 'Bridged and was really, REALLY hoping this whole time for 1Kids' version of Ash to square off against Cell.

Re: Is Ten an alien?

In Daizenshuu #4's racial guide, in Tenshinhan's listing within the Earthlings section, he was noted as "a descendant of the three-eyed tribe, who are themselves the descendants of aliens." So he has some very distant alien ancestry who-knows how many generations back, and this was what th...

Re: A Multiplier for Guru's Unlock Potential for Krillin.

From an in-universe perspective... It's based on an individual's dormant power, and that's different for everyone, so it really shouldn't have anything resembling an applicable "multiplier." The 1.8 thing you've pointed out is at best a bit of a stretched coincidence. But from a more meta ...

Re: Namek classes and reproduction

The thing to understand is they're not really just "classes" or "clans," or what have you, as if it's just a job description. These divisions are treated as actually biological, like the closest thing that Namekians have to two different sexes. It's why most sources I've seen cal...

Re: ¿Is Super Saiyan Grade 3 ten times stronger than Super Saiyan Grade 2?

I'm sure if that information originally stemmed from anything originally published by Shueisha, we'd know all about it by now. It's almost certainly just an out-of-nowhere embellishment from whatever Spanish publisher put together the book this page came from.
