Re: Is stupid to use the term "canon"?

The word shouldn't be "canon" but " canons ". There's the manga canon. There's the anime canon. There's the movie canon. There's the video game canon. Even DB Evolution counts as a live-action canon(that Toriyama personally detests in comparison to any other DB-related material). There's no one-true...

Would DBS Have Been Made If DB Evolution Never Was?

I recall that Akira Toriyama had some uncharacteristically harsh, choice words for DB Evolution and that the film likely stirred him up enough to personally revitalize his work on DB. However, had the Hollywood interpretation of DB never been made, would Toriyama have had the same incentive to want ...

No doubt the ability of transformation as well. Vegeta might be able to push himself onto a new form with total mastery of spirit control.

Re: Is it logical to think that SSJ3 Gogeta would be around Buutenks' level?

That still doesn't change the fact that Toei stated Hirudegarn was weaker than Janemba because SSJ3 Goku beat him. Yes, Hirudegarn got weaker due to his weakness. But "considerably" I doubt it very much. SSJ3 Gotenks was treated like trash by that Hirudegarn. And Gohan was trashed even more by Base...

Re: Goku loves food so much, he could get targeted through poisoning

If a heart virus, suffocation, and the extreme temperatures of the Earth's core can kill Goku, I dont see why a poison specialized to harm a Saiyan wouldn't also be able to do the trick.

Re: Is it logical to think that SSJ3 Gogeta would be around Buutenks' level?

Actually, I don't think Hirudegarn is stronger than Bootenks just because of that. Ultimate Gohan was far weaker than SSJ3 Gotenks in Movie 13 as seen in the fight. SSJ3 Gotenks forced Hirudegarn to transform, while Ultiamte Gohan was trashed throughout (even SSJ2 Vegeta did better than him). Then ...

Re: What exactly is Kibito?

The Daizenshuu simply refers to Kibito as "an old-looking man" and that he is Shin's attendant. If I had to guess, Kibito's neither a Kaioshin or a Kaio but a magically-modified member of one of the many humanoid species that exists in U7.

Re: Is it logical to think that SSJ3 Gogeta would be around Buutenks' level?

My perspective is that we should go off of Buuhan's expectations. Boohan's estimations for Goku & Vegeta's fusion was wildly inaccurate though. As seen in the anime, even Base Vegetto was stronger than Boohan. In M12, SSJ Gogeta pretty easily overpowered & destroyed Janemba, a Boohan-tier foe. In D...

Re: Should Freeza have never been revived in Super?

He definitely needed a comeback since Freeza was pretty much a joke the minute he got diced by Trunks. Freeza then made sporadic appearances in the anime & movies, most or even all of his scenes depicting him in a humorous light. ROF definitely returned Freeza to form as a genuine threat and it has ...

Re: Golden oozaru goten Vs Great saiyaman

Gohan would get wrecked if this was at the beginning of the Boo arc. Goten was already around the same tier of strength as Gohan at that point so Goten going Oozaru on top would probably be above even Vegeta in raw power. The Z Senshi would have to neutralize the tail or take out the moon to stop Go...

Re: Objectively, How Much Stronger Is UIO/MUI Than SSJB?

This is probably just a narrative inconsistency, but the narrative sometimes portrayed Omen as not being that powerful. Only it just makes Goku's reactions and instincts far sharper. Kefla noted that Goku doesn't hit that hard while he was UIO. We can presume from this that she felt that he hit har...

Re: Asking Takao Koyama

But Hirudegarn is stronger than Janemba Not at all. Janemba defeated Super Saiyan 3 Goku, while Super Saiyan 3 Goku was able to defeat Hirudegarn in the end. That and other things. Such as Toei's old filmsite stating that Janemba was more powerful than Hirudegarn. The phantom majin Hildegarn is a f...

Re: Objectively, How Much Stronger Is UIO/MUI Than SSJB?

I never liked the idea that UI is a huge boost in power, but rather absolutely perfect martial arts technique. This especially paired with the manga repeatedly letting Goku know powering up isn't the way to beat Jiren in ToP, as he simply can't reach Jiren's level in this situation. To me it makes ...

Re: Roshi and Baba - the first sibling team of DB

It's hard to believe Roshi and Baba are siblings, it's like it was written into the plot and then things just moved on from there. I'm pretty sure that at least 99.99% of DB's story is just written into the plot and that all things simply move on from there. Is Goku a monkey boy who is actually amo...

Re: What is the main reason Vegeta's fans are furious with DBS Chapter 61?

You're forgetting about Vegeta's second technique, his ability to defuse fused characters. And Moro still has his magic, a secret technique or two that he has yet to show off, and full access to 7-3's ability. Moro probably touched Vegeta's neck prior to curbstomping him to the ground so its really...

Re: What is the main reason Vegeta's fans are furious with DBS Chapter 61?

I'm disappointed that Vegeta's technique really didn't matter against Moro's copy & paste of his own power from 7-3. Its somewhat implied that Moro's power-up is now permanent and isn't reliant on the amount of life energy he had stolen before, meaning that Vegeta's technique will be useless in de-p...

Re: Do you think Final Form Hirudegarn is just around Mystic Gohan's raw power?

Hirudegarn's power appears to fluctuate randomly so he's not always at his best but if his defeat of Ultimate Gohan is anything to go by, a full power Hirudegarn is at least as powerful as Bootenks or maybe even Boohan.
