Re: What Happens To A Fighter's Ki After They Die?

I'm inclined to think it stays with the user's body (depending of course on the user keeping his or her body in the first place) in both directions. We have the aforementioned example of Raditz's brief fight with Enma getting respect from Goku. Although Frieza was bound in Earth's Hell, he could sti...

Re: Goku saying Vegeta wants to get Gohan and Gotenks to fight

Another thing to note is that characters come back to life in the same state as their dead body. For example, Vegeta fought Kid Buu with a dead body and got beat up and fatigued. After he was restored to life, he was still beat up and fatigued, even before Kid Buu pummeled him further. It then follo...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

Both the manga and anime hinted at Vegeta doing his own thing which will be great if that's what Toriyama wants to do. If I remember correctly, during the fight with Kid Buu, Vegeta called Ssj3 useless because it was unreliable which resulted in him never using it, despite being able to. UI is even...

What's the audio equivalent of "on-model"? Because this is that. Thank you for bringing attention to this. I wonder if he's done any themes for Super?

Re: Did Gogeta and Broly create a pocket dimension?

Thinking about it further, I think that if this is anything, it's related to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Specifically, the way Buu and Gotenks got out. It has a specific door, but when they screamed a hole in space, they came out near where the actual door was rather than at the door. Arguably, if...

Re: Did Gogeta and Broly create a pocket dimension?

Agreed, this wasn't just a neato visual effect but an in-universe phenomenon that their clash of powers created. Personally, I thought they had briefly visited the Into the Spider-verse movie.

Re: Late 2018 Headcanon Take on Saiyan Beyond God

In my post right above yours where I'm responding to PFM18, I describe a discrepancy involving Goku and Gohan that is solved by assuming a normal Base and one using God Ki (or "normal Ki but way more powerful due to having adapted to SSG", since I consider that to be a distinction without a differe...

Re: Late 2018 Headcanon Take on Saiyan Beyond God

More like people just misinterpreted what the original promo material meant. Could also be that Toei hadn't decided exactly how they'd handle the Saiyans' new forms but now the previous material has been overwritten. You can still look at that old material and view it as I have described. When they...

Re: Late 2018 Headcanon Take on Saiyan Beyond God

Well Saiyan Beyond God wasn't a thing in the RoF arc either. Everyone can sense Goku when he is fighting Freeza, and then when he went SSB they explicitly comment about how they could no longer sense him. So it's clear in the scene that he wasnt using God Ki prior to turning SSB, so this doesn't re...

Re: Late 2018 Headcanon Take on Saiyan Beyond God

Hello everyone! As many of us know, the phrase "Saiyan Beyond God" elicits controversy and annoyance out of anyone who reads it. Things changed again. Now Goku and Vegeta have Base, the Yellow-haired forms, the Red-haired form, and the Blue-haired form. But where did the strong second base go? It w...

Re: Late 2018 Headcanon Take on Saiyan Beyond God

My theory is that Goku and Vegeta can theoretically still access that same base form, but instead turn into SSG because, in-universe, it gives them a slight boost in speed because of less muscle mass or because is more efficient to transform than to continuously power up with God ki inside their bo...

Re: Late 2018 Headcanon Take on Saiyan Beyond God

I agree with everything you said. I introduced someone to DBS who had only seen DB and DBZ. This person had a lot of trouble following the power scaling of Goku and Vegeta. It really does feel like SS1 and Base power vacillate between super weak to fairly strong. We don't have any confirmation that...

Re: Late 2018 Headcanon Take on Saiyan Beyond God

There's really no reason to think that "Saiyan Beyond God" exists or that there's anything other than just normal power boosts in DBS. The only reason people thought this was the case was because of the RoF movie and the corresponding promotional material. The actual DBS anime never gives us any in...

Did Goku Upgrade the Instant Transmission?

The way IT works is that the user senses a person's ki and teleports to that person's location. Except for Movie 6 with Meta-Cooler, DBZ has been pretty consistent with this. It's why Goku couldn't just sense King Kai's ki, sense King Yemma's ki, split the difference, and teleport Cell to explode sa...

Re: Is anyone with the belief that Base Goku post SSJG > Z Super Vegetto?

1) We already know that retaining SSJG's power doesn't necessarily equate to retaining the "undetectable by non-deities" aspect. In the series, Goku fought Beerus as a "Super Saiyan Beyond God" (whether temporary or permanent) with all the power his SSJG form had had, and his friends were able to s...

Re: Does Super Saiyan 2 Have A Form Similar To Ascended Super Saiyan?

Actually, I'd call SSJ3 the Ascended version of SSJ2 (energy-intensive, longer hair, deformed look (brow instead of muscles)), making manga-Trunks's improved SSJ2 and Vegeta's "My Bulma" SSJ2 the most likely candidates for the Full Power version of SSJ2.
