Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Next Battle Baby Vegito Black VS Jiren Piccolo TOP VS Bergamo Toppo VS Rage trunks dyspo VS Nuova Shenron 17 Ranger VS Hell fighter 17 VS 17 GT Pan GT VS Shin 1. I'm not sure sure how that would come to be, but regular Vegetto "blue" would probably beat Jiren. 2. I agree with the assessment that Pi...

Re: When Did The "Legendary" Super Saiyan Form Become A Joke?

I think super saiyan became a "joke" mainly in Boo arc, first because of how easily Goten and Trunks could do it and then how quickly super saiyan 2 was surpassed, by both Boo and the super saiyan 3 form. In the Artificial Humans arc, despite the nonsense of technology surpassing a legendary transfo...

Re: Which arcs do you think each recurring character was best and worst potrayed in and why?

Son Goku: Best: Late Saiyan arc and Namek/Freeza arc. I think Goku learning about his ancestry and progressively aknowledging and coming to terms with it, which changes his character a bit and culminates with achieving the super saiyan form is probably at the top. Worst: arguably the Hunt for the Dr...

Re: Should the Z-fighters split up after the Broly movie?

Or simply, if Goku, Vegeta and few others left to visit universe 6, something could happen in universe 7 that forces the remaining z warriors to step up and fight some threat, relying on themselves alone.

That's two arcs in one go.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I'd say Gohan is stronger than Roshi. Remember in the tournament, how the only thing that really separated "Jackie Chun" and Goku was Jackie's longer reach? Well, when Gohan and Goku fought during Baba's tournament, Gohan gave way more than he got, even without including exploiting Goku's tail Yes,...

Re: How far would any of these characters go in DB?

Knowing Guts, he probably wouldn't go past 21st tournament characters. I can see the black swordsman beating the likes of Giran, Bora or even Yamcha, but not Muten Roshi, Goku or even Krillin or general Blue. With the berserker armor I guess he might beat something like major Metallitron or the robo...

Re: Ki Mechanics

I wonder if it's possible that lack of exposition about ki in the series can be partly related to first watching it starting with Z and if that can be associated with the dub, regarding those who first watched it back in the day. I'm saying that because I (and I assume in most parts of Europe aswell...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

Their interactions strongly suggest they have a close, brother-like relationship and that's all. Ofcourse, anyone is free to imagine whatever they want besides what the story provides.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I get he would probably be arrogant enough to confront Cooler and not expect him to retaliate, but I believe Freeza would be smart enough to approach his brother with caution. I don't. After the way he tried to kill SSJ Goku... AFTER being cut in half, after Goku had JUST decided to spare his life,...

Re: Reviving those who died in the Saiyan Genocide.

Knowing saiyans, I'd say they would probably just fight it out and the strongest would become the king/queen.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

From what I recall, Coola's Empire has been mentioned as a major thing from the Universe 9 Fighters before, so this story is probably going to cover the Earthlings VS Cooler, so maybe the writer thought how Cooler killed Frieza and got control was important to have a scene around. Doesn't stop it f...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

That did escalate quickly and frankly this isn't being very convincing to me. I highly doubt Cooler would outright attack (and kill) Freeza all of the sudden - and if he did, I'm sure Freeza wouldn't die from his attack regardless of whatever gap there is between their power but alas - over somethin...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I have to admit that I had lost interest over the last few pages, I think there was too much focus on Gohan(s) and the result felt a bit anti-climatic to me, because he basically got mad and one-shot everything. With Bra into the fold, as a villain, with the build-up she had so far, now that feels l...

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Super 17 is also a fusion, just saying. You're right, a different type of fusion but a fusion nonetheless. Base Trunks destroyed Yakon in single ki blast tho and together with base Goten they one shotted #19 as well. Even their base should be above Cell arc super saiyans according to this. I admit ...

Re: I like Goku becoming a child again in GT

As someone with neutral feelings towards GT, I admit inicially I enjoyed the idea of seeing Goku being turned back into a kid. It reminds about that early era of Dragon Ball and that is furthermore reinforced with the adventure of looking for the dragon balls throughout the universe. Unfortunately t...

Re: So what was the Namekian cataclysm?

I'm guessing it possibly was some sort of phenomenon that triggered a sudden climate change that nearly destroyed Namek's ecossistem. I don't know what kind of phenomenons could be since it's not my area of expertise, but I don't think anybody would survive such change no matter how powerful they ar...

Re: When did you start liking Vegeta?

I guess I liked Vegeta the most around Namek arc, where his character peaked my interest. That old armor with large shoulderpads looked good on him (I know he changed armor before fighting Freeza).
