Re: Would Anything Happen If Son Goku Would Have Used The Attack He Had Used To Defeat Piccolo Daimaō With More Often?

He did perfect the technique, and it’s called the Dragon Fist. We’ve seen against Hirudegarn, Super 17, and others that with this move Goku can penetrate people tiers stronger than himself. Theoretically he could have done it to Freeza but the Dragon Fist wasn’t mastered back then, and he probably c...

Could Goku become an expert in algebra if it would make him stronger?

Let’s say that Whis tells Goku the only way for him to become stronger is by mastering his mathematic skills. Reaching an expert level in algebra will unlock a new form of ki that will make Goku as strong as an Angel. If Goku committed himself to this and trained with Bulma and Dr. Briefs, could he ...

Re: If you were a Saiyan, what path would you go through to get stronger?

Definitely the path of having my five friends hold my hand in a ceremony to give me god power within five minutes. Yeah, I would choose that over the alternative of training hard every day for my entire life.

Either that or the path of SSJ4, because SSJ4 is cool.

Was Grade III physically slower or did the bulky body just limit movement?

Personally I think the big muscles were mainly what was killing this form. We know it had much greater ki than the other Super Saiyan forms, so it wouldn’t make sense for Trunks to become physically slower. He had much more ki therefore more ki output to his speed. How can the increase of ki make hi...

Re: How relatable is Vegeta?

I think Vegeta is very relatable in the way that he is a man who knows exactly who he is. He is able to scream loudly “I AM VEGETA THE SAIYAN PRINCE” without shame or hesitation. Imagine being able to shout your name at people and into the sky proudly. That’s knowing exactly who you are, which is so...

Re: DB is not better than DBZ

The series kept getting better as it went on. Toriyama became a better writer and artist with time. Just like how Goku grows stronger over time. I agree to an extent. He kept getting better and refining his talents, but he tops out at the Namek/Freeza arc. There's still some good stuff afterwards b...

Re: Your favourite Akira Toriyama quote

I read some interview years ago where he said something like “When I get old I want to be one of those geezers who pretends to be senile so he can watch his granddaughter in the shower.” Extremely weird but coming from him it’s hilarious.

Re: What if: no teleportation

Freeza would have killed everybody on Earth before Goku could arrive. There would be absolutely no way to stop this from happening without teleportation. This would be in the original timeline, meaning there is no future Trunks to travel back in time and fight Freeza. There would also be no way to s...

Is Vegeta a racist/saiyan supremacist?

I see a lot of talk about Freeza being racist but he seems to just hate everyone and doesn’t have a preference for his own species. Vegeta actually fits the bill more. He seems to look at saiyans like the aryan race and every other race of beings is inferior in his eyes.

Re: Ginyu - An Honorable Warrior?

Goku did note that one of the reasons for his choosing to spare Ginyu had to do with his claims of the captain showing fair play during their fight. In my opinion, Ginyu exhibited honourability to an extent when he felt the conditions were in his favour and the course of the fight pre-determined. O...

Re: Who Might Perfect Cell Fuse With?

What if he fused with Buu, and figured that he would be able to control the fusion because Buu was so simple-minded? I figured Buu would just absorb Cell, whether he was willing to let it happen or not, so Buu would be in control. That sounds like a good story idea, Cell and Boo absorbing each othe...

Re: Could have Dragon Ball survived in the English Speaking world without Cartoon Network?

I believe that if Dragon Ball Z came out of the gate with a killer dub, and premiered on FOX right after the Simpsons, it would have been an even bigger hit and could have gotten more family members to watch.

Re: How powerful do you think a Piccolo and Lord Slug Namekian fusion would have been?

You guys are massively overrating Slug. Nail made him relative to Freeza because Nail was already a fraction of Freeza’s power, but fusing with Nail again at these present power levels wouldn’t yield a big result. At best Piccolo with Slug could beat a Cell Jr, Vegeta would be shocked that the Namek...

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

Goku is almost completely immune to poisons and toxins. In Jaco the Galactic Patrolman, Jaco carries around a small vial that holds a toxin so powerful it would apparently wipe out the human race if he opened it. But then he says it flat out wouldn’t work on a saiyan, not even a baby saiyan like Kak...

There’s no way Zalama is more powerful than Zeno since Zeno already overrided Zamasu’s immortality wish.

Re: What Makes a Super Saiyajin Strong?

It’s explained in some guidebooks that Super Saiyan transformations bring out the latent power hidden inside a saiyan warrior’s body. Every saiyan is really that strong, most of them just don’t achieve it. In the modern stuff Whis had an interesting way of describing Super Saiyans and basically call...

Re: How High Could The Transformations Of DBS Take Kid Goku & Kid Vegeta?

Freeza would have had a hard time if any Super Saiyan appeared, even a kid. A kid Super Saiyan God would probably own him on Namek. I don’t see a kid Super Saiyan God beating Majin Boo. Majin Boo has killed plenty of gods so that isn’t enough against him. Majin Boo is something of a god himself, or ...
