Re: Would a Super Saiyan grade form be possible that increased speed and stamina at the expense of power and strength?

That's basically Grade 4. They could reduce their power to conserve stamina when not in a battle. I don't think that actually increased their speed and stamina, though. Here's how I see it: SSJ: Speed: 50 (-10) Strength: 50 (-10) Power: 50 (-10) Stamina: 50 (-10) Grade 2: Speed: 60 Strength: 75 Pow...

Would a Super Saiyan grade form be possible that increased speed and stamina at the expense of power and strength?

Basically the inverse of the two Grades seen in the middle of the Cell Arc. Would it be possible to dump energy that normally increased physical strength or raw ki into speed and stamina instead?

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Great Ape Gohan (Namek Saga, Pre-Guru Unlock) VS Dr. Wheelo Aren't these two evenly matched in terms of power levels? IIRC, Gohan on Namek pre-Guru was 3,200, and I'm sure some source or another lists Wheelo at 32,000. If that's so I still think Wheelo wins handily. Gohan is a mindless brute as Ooz...

- Android 19 vs. Dodoria (equal power, limited stamina)
I'm biased, but 19 should walk away with it. Not only does he have ki absorption, but he's also programmed with a library of techniques. Dodoria seems to be little more than a brick.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Android 19, my namesake, is incredibly underrated. Yes, I know he doesn't get much to do. He's completely subservient to Gero, then gets smoked by Vegeta for no reason other than to build up his Super Saiyan transformation. But from a character design perspective he's probably the best thing to come...

The exchange in my signature. I love how malevolent it makes the first pair of Androids feel.

Re: How Powerful Do You Think Majin Gohan Would Have Been?

Why are we assuming Majin Gohan would even be stronger than Majin Vegeta, when base Gohan was weaker than base Vegeta by a not-insignificant margin at that point?

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

I enjoy seeing Vegeta cower before Broly, and I hope we get more of that. Broly might be a mediocre character, but it's completely worth it if it knocks vegetable head down a notch or two.

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

Toriyama even admitted that its fanservice pandering and most intelligent people know it is. Yes, but - here's the kicker - so was Golden Freeza . That's even more egregious, in fact, since at least this will be Broly's first appearance in the official canon. And it ought to be handled that way. No...

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

I'm happier with Broly coming back than I ever was with Freeza's return. This is the first time Broly has 'existed' in Toriyama's canon; for all intents and purposes movies 8/10/11 may as well not exist. So Broly is tantamount to a new character being introduced in-universe, even if that's obviously...

Re: So I rewatched Dragon Ball GT

Weird thing about the fights in GT is that the side fights - Baby Goten vs. Gohan for example, and especially Baby Gohan vs. Vegeta at the wind farm - are often more satisfying than the big arc fights like Goku vs. Baby Vegeta. Those side fights match some of the best main battles in Z , but the mai...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Hell, as far as canon goes, I'm perfectly happy not to recognize material that Toriyama's had a direct hand in when it's awful - like Dragonball Minus. Just terrible. Consequently, the TV Special is still "my" canon.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I dislike Vegeta. I really dislike Vegeta, and not just because he pulled my arms off.

(Srsly, I think the character is annoying and his rivalry with Goku is stale as Hell. I don't "love to hate" him; he gets X-Pac Heat from me and I wish he'd go away.)
