Re: How would you have reconcile both Broly (Z Broly & Super Broly) in the same continuity ?

I've actually thought about this a lot, and came upon a neat and simple excuse that can actually bring the movie characters into the main timeline: Z Broly comes from a timeline where he and Paragus were rescued from Vampa much sooner, Paragus enacted a more megalomaniacal plan and used Broly for th...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

I personally find it worrisome that the success of Broly might galvanise Toei into pursuing more rehashes instead of dedicating themselves to more original villains. Sure, there's a great number of DB fans who enjoy Broly, but it's not a universal opinion. Almost no opinion is universal. For every ...

Re: What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

The cold fact is that Dragon Ball itself isn't original You can more-or-less say that about anything though. Whatever media you think invented something, some precursor element of it likely existed before it, and some element before that, and before that, and before you know it, you're approaching ...

Re: What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

There's another dumb SERIES of theories I've encountered but they're less about Dragon Ball itself and more about Dragon Ball as a piece of media. To give you a hint of what it is, let's just say that it made me seriously appreciate Kunzait_83's wuxia thread so much more. I've thought of making a mo...

Re: What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

Toriyama sitting in a chair deciding what is canon about Dragon Ball. That's hilarious, I halfway laugh iinternally every time I meet someone with this headcanon Toriyama probably doesn't know what the word "canon" means at this point. Still, he's the creator and he can't really create fanfiction o...

Re: Is Future Trunks' SSJ2 A Form That Is Unique To Him?

Outside of the Legendary/full power form, I don't think there are any "unique" Super Saiyan forms per se; just unique expressions of ki. Everyone's life force is basically different but draws from the same spiritual source. Trunks' being so strong is just him having the right training and the tortur...

Re: Are Cabba and Caulifla/Kale Gohan's age or Younger?

It'd be hilarious if they ended up being something like 42 or more. And it could be possible for Caulifla. Her brother is retired, so that means he is probably pretty up there in years. I know they all act like kids, but with the saiyan aging process you never know. Well it seemed that her brother ...

Re: Who Should Return Or Be Canonized Next?

I would be completely at ease if they brought Tullece back because the concept of an Evil Goku is appealing to me, and every attempt besides Tullece was a case of "someone steals Goku's body for nefarious purposes." I dunno, that always felt just a bit cheap to me when all I wanted was a full-fledge...

Re: My idea for a DBZ beat 'em up

It's always amazed me that back during DBZ's original run, when the arcade beat 'em up genre was at the height of its popularity, we didn't get a game in that style. I'm also continuously surprised that we never got a dedicated arcade-fighter Dragon Ball game. Even crazier is the fact arcades never...

Re: Does anybody remember that Raging Blast 3 project? What happened to that?

He's just a regular fan as much as anyone else. It was never an actual "project" in that it was never a real game or development plan or anything like that. Particularly with the continued (never-ending!) Xenoverse 2 support and the release of FighterZ , I have to imagine that at some point along t...

Re: Did Ultimate Tenkaichi have potential as a full series?

With its "rock scissors paper" i don't think it would be good series. It's fine for a single game. Although i still consider this game to be the best looking DB game ever made and it had interesting Hero mode. How many games let you fight SHENRON himself? Also, boss fight against Baby was very cool...

Re: Was Super Saiyan a mistake?

Massive bump, but I want to add that I realize now that Dragon Ball suffers from the exact same problem that afflicts just about all poorly thought out xianxia fiction. Dragon Ball is certainly not original by any stretch of the imagination, and that extends even to its problems— if you ever take th...

Re: Why does Infinite World get overlooked?

It was a bargain bin release and people stop caring about the PS2 by 2008. This. Whenever I think of Infinite World, I think "DBZ shovelware." It's really not that bad, but it's not the kind of game I'd return to. To compare it to an actually great game, think of Grand Theft Auto 3. One of the grea...

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Hollywood was never going to make a proper Dragon Ball film. But Hollywood isn't the only hub of cinema on Earth. Dragon Ball is fundamentally rooted in Chinese fantasy, so naturally a Dragon Ball film would best be made by the Chinese. Anyone who tells you...

Re: Is it okay for Goku to be an divorcee?

Sometimes I think fans think about Dragon Ball in deeper terms than even Toriyama did. Kunzait once laid out my own thoughts on this, and in the same overly-long rambling that I typically do as well. In short: Dragon Ball is a shonen manga for 7/8 year olds and it knows what it wants to be. It's no...

Re: Did Ultimate Tenkaichi have potential as a full series?

Ultimate Tenkaichi had a sickening amount of potential, which is one reason why so many people hate it. Yes, it was the first (console) Dragon Ball game to have a character creator, but said creator was severely gimped. Remember, you could only create male Saiyans and you had about three hair styles...

Re: "Dragon Ball Game Project Z Action RPG" Announced.

Its just that RPG games tend to only follow one character. But then again, if this follows the OG db story, it CAN’T just follow Goku as he doesn’t fight all the fights. I’d like a party system. From my experience, RPGs tend to follow parties of characters, more akin to having Son Goku alongside Kr...
