Re: Beerus pre God of destruction power?

Neither Beerus or Champa have ever stated that they were born into their positions, not even having implied it as far as I know. It however has been stated that Hakaishin are appointed and as seen in the purple cats' case, Hakaishin can live for tens of millions of years upon taking on the position....

Re: Is Goku's stupidity at least partially an act?

The fact that Goku had trouble with an elementary-level test of intelligence speaks for itself. He might be quick-witted in a battle but when it comes to general intellect and functioning within a society, Goku is below average...and that's being favorable.

Re: Was SS3 Gotenks enough to destroy Super Buu?

I'd say "not" in the end as it was sort of a sign of what was to come in Goku & Pure Boo's fight. Goku/Gotenks certainly had the power to inflict major damage on either Boo but the regenerative ability of Boo simply mitigated however much damage they received, that and the stamina issue with SSJ3 as...

Re: 28 planets?

Considering that DBS retconned the "4 galaxies" thingy from Toriyama's original vision of the universe, there ought to be a lot more planets with sentient races on them. I think its more likely that Shin is simply ignorant and is only counting the planets that he knows or is aware of off the top of ...

Re: How strong is non Majin Dabra?

The Majin power up could've been a substantial power up for many but for the individuals seen in the story, it wasn't that impressive. If Dabura only powered up to the same degree as Vegeta, non-Majin Dabura would've been on FPSSJ Kid Gohan's level. If his power up was actually greater than Vegeta's...

Re: How to Fix SSj4

I would have liked it if SSJ4 was just gold as it's standard color, turning red when Goku absorbed energy from the other Saiyans as a way to visually signify the difference in power that Full Power SSJ4 demonstrated. In a post-BOG franchise, it would also be a nice callback to SSJG and the method of...

Re: Explanation to why weaker characters can withstand stronger ones attacks?

Sometimes, its just plot armor. Look at GT Kid Goku in base surviving Super Yi Xing Long's minus energy blast when Goku previously needed SSJ4 to withstand such an attack. D-...does he? Yeah and what's worse, Goku was already a bit tired from the extended use of SSJ4(meaning he wasn't even at full ...

Re: Do you think they defused kibitoshin so he couldn't stand up to zamasu at all?

I really doubt Shin was that much stronger than Kamiccolo, I think Shin's status in the universal hierarchy freaked Piccolo out more than anything. Shin boasted that all 5 Kaioshin could kill Freeza with a single blast....but Android arc SSJs could do the same thing so that was hardly an impressive ...

Re: Do you think they defused kibitoshin so he couldn't stand up to zamasu at all?

Kibitoshin was too weak to contribute in the fight against Pure Boo so I doubt that he was defused just to even the odds against Zamasu. You could multiply Kibitoshin's strength by a thousand times and I still think Zamasu has it in the bag.

Re: Do You Think? Pan/Age/SSG/Future

They'd only do that if there was some crisis that involved a plethora of Godly Saiyans being needed to save the day. In the end, it would probably be better that they all improve in their own unique ways(like Gohan) as the God forms are not such an amazing thing anymore. They might be superior in po...

Re: Can Gohan do the Grade forms?

Gohan already has SSJ2 down so the grade forms would be a piece of cake. Ki control among the current Z Senshi is unimaginably higher than what they ever accomplished in DBZ so even Krillin could probably follow the principle of buffing up your body and make his own variant of the grade forms. That ...

Re: Kaikai versus angel transport.

Angels probably could use the Kai Kai if they chose to. However, that's simply not part of their desired function. They don't have to teleport to places because they have their own preferred method of travel that is satisfactory to themselves and their respective Hakaishin. As entities that hold a g...

Re: So, how do you guys think Moro will be defeated?

Since this arc has already taken much inspiration from the Cell saga, Moro may simply blow himself up when a Goku & Vegeta combo messes up his plans...and then he'll regenerate from the explosion along with a Zenkai as a side-effect of copying Vegeta's abilities. :roll: Afterwards, Goku presses the ...

I have a feeling this will really be solved with fusion after all, most likely Vegetto this time... Moro probably won't fight the way he currently is, but rather have a separate normal body serving as his avatar, while his Earth self will serve as a mind, and a source of power, similar to how Coola...

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

The boys unfortunately got a double dose of those Saiyan genes, meaning they grow at a Kid Goku-rate. It wasn't until Goku was 15 that he wasn't a pint-sized child anymore and Vegeta appears to have been the same way in movie scenes. That's just a fan-made excuse. The real answer is no one wants to...
