Re: Who is a Mary Sue in Drago Ball.

- The Mafuba was never intended to a super difficult techique for everyone. The fact that Tien in the Piccolo saga was able to master it in less than a day (despite taking Roshi & his master decades to learn it and dying when using it) is proof of that. Also, Goku learning in one day as a kid means...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

Ultimate Spider-Man is inherently a little silly in premise -- radioactive spider bite gives teen superpowers -- but having read about half its initial 2000-2009 run, I would say it's a very adult book, and anyone claiming otherwise, I'd ask if they've actually read the damn thing. Genuine question...

And was Trunks nearby in any of those occasions?
He was there for both. He was one of the people Cell blinded with it in both occasions (the second in particular was to keep him from interfering in Cell absorbing 18)

He uses it twice. Once to escape from Piccolo and the others. The other right before he absorbs 18

Re: Vic Mignogna

For the third time now, I don't want him to die, just get sick and have to be quarantined so he can't get up to his predatory antics for a while. This is still an astonishingly fucked up statement, and just gives this forum a bad name. It's really so bad to wish he was stuck at home for a month or ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

DBZ Broly actually had a good reason for being so naturally strong: he's the one true legendary SSJ that's only appears thousand years or so (hell, him being the LSSJ was the entire plot of that film). Whereas DBS Broly is just a randomly strong GoD-tier Saiyan for no reason (since the film doesnt ...

I don't remember Zamas defusing in the manga. IIRC he multiplied into many merged Zamas's. So I don't see how that's a plot hole.
He multiplied because Trunks sliced him in half, as he was defusing. Before that, it was noted that Zamasu was gonna defuse after an hour had passed by Gowasu

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

I would say Freeza’s 1st form is slightly stronger than Vegeta when they fought, but Krillin and Gohan would compensate that difference to give Vegeta an advantage. For some reason, I have the impression Goku was considerably stronger than Vegeta even after both got a near death power-up, when they...

Realistically I'm betting the new characters will likely be Cooler, Toppo and probably another variant of Vegeta or something. If I had my choice in addition to Toppo I'd have Muten Roshi and Yajirobe. I'd also love it if they had Abo and Kado!!!!
Uh, we already have cooler?

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

Eventually, Manga Jiren finds himself in a spot where he could save his friends and work together as a team, but as has already been established since his intro, he's a loner and leaves them to be eliminated. This is around the time Vermoud tells the audience that Jiren's master had told him Jiren'...

Re: What if SS4 returned?

I'd prefer Dragon Ball to go in new directions rather than rely on nostalgia for old designs, and continue its over-reliance on new transformations. But sure, it could work. Maybe Goku realises that to tap into his full strength, he can't rely on God ki that was given to him, he has to find a prima...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

I wouldn't trust Disney with Dragon Ball. The visuals of Dragon Ball wouldn't work well in live-action. And a live-action film would probably have a washed out color palette and bland cinematography like the MCU does. Why are you basing it off of just that when Star Wars, for as many flaws as peopl...

MUI should've just been handled like in the manga. Weak as hell but slowly grinds him down with precise blows that wouldn't do any damage before being able to concentrate the power of his blows, and if Jiren lands it's just game over.. it was much better than this, or, ya know, do it the best way a...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Honestly I thought the rather than saying the story vanished at the beginning of the fight, the rest of it just tended to be told through fighting “A new tale of the warrior saiyan race is told through combat” That was the Tagline of one of the trailers, I think the 3rd one, and idk, this quote in p...

Re: Battle of Gods vs Super: Broly

Narratively, there's a lot of extraneous material in BoG, but I still enjoy it all. It's fun, the new characters are great, and the end provides thematic closure. The party story and Pilaf material isn't quote unquote on-story, it does serve to remind us how much we enjoy these characters and like ...

Re: Am I The Only DB Fan Who Likes Jiren?

I would’ve appreciated Jiren more if he actually came across as a genuine superhero who just happens to be someone Goku has to fight . Unfortunately, the series decided to make him this brooding, trash talking loner with an extremely cliché backstory, and an even more cliché philosophy that essenti...

Re: Broly: A Fun Mixed Bag

My problem is that they don't do anything to make you feel sympathy for him during the fight. Especially once Gogeta comes in. It's just a one-sided beat down of a berserker that's only showing anger as an emotion. Eh, I mean, I feel like it is important to note that said anger he’s feeling by the ...
