Re: is piccolo god level in the manga?

If we just take things at face value, Piccolo reaches this level as early as the U6 arc as: SSJ Goku/Vegeta (U6) >> Frost >= Piccolo > 3rd form Frost >= Base Goku and Vegeta after 3 years training post RoF >> Base Goku and Vegeta pre-3 years training *you could say that the statement made in the an...

Re: is piccolo god level in the manga?

I can see Piccolo being above SSJ2 and maybe even SSJ3 Goku, because in fact this is a level of power that is irrelevant in the face of the big bad guys so it makes sense that this power up goes unnoticed (if we are arguing about the reason for the lack of more precise / specific statements about h...

Re: is piccolo god level in the manga?

You'd hardly be able to figure out anyone's strength with that sort of thinking and it's just not how Dragon Ball works. In U6 alone Piccolo kept shattering everyone's expectations of himself which was a theme clearly shown in the text and via his performance in both mediums. We found out fifteen y...

Yeah, I'm with dragonball0900 . I've already expressed my thoughts on this matter in loads of detail in a similar thread from a few months back. https://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=45489&start=20 In both mediums, Piccolo has had enough feats and mentions from other characters to sh...

Re: is piccolo god level in the manga?

I don't believe making a good team with a blue level character makes you blue level without a doubt Dragon Ball doesn't really employ these team mechanics that some of you are mentioning especially with direct hand to hand combat. If Piccolo is outclassed as some people are saying, he'd simply be "...

Re: is piccolo god level in the manga?

It really speaks to Piccolo's potential. Even without transformations or godly training (since he didn't do much with King Kai) Piccolo still manages to remain a contender despite the insane escalation of power between the Saiyan protagonists and their new foes. He really is the perfect training pa...

Re: What you found savable of the DBS anime

Quite a lot actually, since things drastically improved once we got to the Goku Black arc. But mainly, slice-of-life episodes. The episodic writers of the show do a lot to get us to learn and care about all the members of the cast. I wish the manga incorporated some of the developments from the anim...

Re: is piccolo god level in the manga?

Quite simply, yes. Piccolo appeared to be stronger than #17 and is fighting at a level similar to Gohan after training for Moro's invasion for 2 months. He assumed that his last ditch effort, an attack that would wipe out all his nearby friends and allies would do significant damage to a Moro who wa...

Re: What would you like Dragon Ball to cross-over with?

Both are prideful martial artists whose lives revolve around the continuous strive for power and to be the strongest. Both lived lives that required a "survival of the fittest" mindset.

Re: The Goten Thread

2) Do you think "Goten Black" was a good concept? Why/why not? R. I liked the Grand Priest "El Presidente" Goten better, actually. Black being a grow-up Goten didn't make a lot of sense to me. What is this? I knew the Latin American fanbase drew up a connection between the Grand Priest and Gohan bu...

Re: What would you like Dragon Ball to cross-over with?

I think YYH would be perfect. Both power systems are so similar that it'd be a seamless interaction. Another I'd like to see from my earliest days as a wee lad on the interwebz is a meeting with Sailor Moon and the 23 TB era characters. Either that or an older SM cast. This would be the only time I'...

Re: The Goten Thread

I like GT Goten. I think it's a hilarious contrast by having him be this ladies man. Personally, I wanna see Goten be a super smooth bisexual. Put him in scenarios that are not strictly about fighting. Piggybacking off of the ladies man characteristic, I'd love if Goten was taken under Yamcha's win...

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

Man, I hope the arc picks up the pacing from the next month. Granolah's adventures are comfy and all, but looking at it really not much happened the last chapter, event-wise. Worse of all I can already feel the pattern that either Goku or Vegeta will go first to fight him for the entire chapter, th...

Re: What do you prefer? The more battle orientated style of Z or the adventuristic aspect of DB?

DB does action probably better than anyone, so I'll have to say that. DB's adventure elements aren't as fully realized unfortunately. You could say that leaves the adventure side of things with the most potential, but I feel that we'd get the most out of that by following a much weaker character. I ...

Re: I REALLY hope that... <MANGA SPOILERS>

It's meant to feel unfair and like a cheat... The situation is designed so that Granolah's power doesn't feel earned. I'm sure there will be ways that this can backfire and lessons that will be learnt about how hollow it is to get to the destination without the journey. Let things play out. I think...

Re: I thought Granola was not able to become the strongest because of his limited latent potential?

Don't overthink it. Simply put, the dragon can do it by shortening his lifespan, "condensing" his potential power throughout his life into the remaining three years. This, but to specify to the OP. It's worded correctly so there's no contradiction. Simply put, the Dragon recognizes that Granola has...

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

So far Granolah is shaping up to be a neutral like "antagonist" motivated by his vendetta against Freeza. I hope he doesn't go off the deep end like Zamasu but it wouldn't surprise me. It's usually the tournament antagonists that maintain their composure during these arcs. I hope Granolah doesn't b...

I don't think it needs to be controversial. Although the presentation may confuse some people, the statements make it clear where they fit into powerscaling. Golden Freeza says that he could defeat Kale if he fought seriously. Krillin says that Gohan could overcome Goku if he continued training (wh...
