Re: Broly's rage: is it inherently genetic or learnable?

While it there is a genetic component, I think there's a lot due to the environment Broly grew up in. His tailed body was constantly exposed to Blutz Waves, which would basically have primed Broly's body to always be ready to go Oozaru once he looks at the moon. I imagine this, combined with his nat...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

I can definitely say that I'm happy it happened. When I was younger, I was a fan. But things fell into obscurity once a big public DB product was no longer being talked about. But then, a little thing called Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods happened. Suddenly, DB was big and newsworthy again, and there...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

but hearts is just so powerful that Jiren and hit are the same to him Exactly. Same way Base Cumber was so strong SSG Goku and SSBKK Vegito were the same :) Anyways. I just read the latest manga chapter and the bit about Gohan being the strongest on Earth threw me off a bit. iirc Goku said 17 was a...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I've always seen it as Freeza ordinarily having a general level equal to the base Saiyans in his own base, but with him being able to push it to full power (and without needing to bulk up) that equals Super Saiyan.

Granted, said base level is already at the level of Majin Buu.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Also, in DBH, nobody dies or even really gets knocked out until the plot mandates it, and everybody has to dodge and block hits until the plot mandates they tank hits or be seriously hurt.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

When it comes to Cabba, something to bear in mind is that this is Cabba's first time as a Super Saiyan, meaning he hasn't mastered the form. As well, Vegeta's in a different position when Cabba's punch connected than when he was about to get hit; he looks like he put his head into Cabba's punch. I'v...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

This outright contradicts Gowasu; stating both body and soul was becoming unstable. But you guys are missing the point of the original argument. The writing was horrendous, to have Zamas get injured by Goku and then be able to fight Vegetto. It was inconsistent writing as usual by TOEI. The balance...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Yeah, Merged Zamasu in the anime very specifically notes that he was too weak after getting bodied by Goku going all out and destroying himself in the process. He then powers himself up with his weird magenta lightning, which allows his purple corrupted half (a visual indicator of his mortal half th...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

My take is that Merged Zamasu when his body isn't mutated IS the "base" version, halo or not. He didn't really get stronger throughout it all, just used fancier moves. In the manga, he has no halo but is functionally the same. It's when he decides to power up in the anime after getting his halo brok...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Just had this in mind. Didn't Toriyama state once that 2 SSJBs should be able to take on Merged Zamasu? If so, then both Toei and Toyotaro didn't get that far from this. I mean, Toyotaro stayed loyal to the idea and had the likes of Perfected SSJB rivaling Merged Zamasu, with Vegito having a clear ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

To be fair, Ultra Instinct Goku only got tagged by Hidden Power Jiren a few key times. The first time, he engaged in a beam struggle that Jiren could brute-force through; next, he deflected one of Goku's own blasts at him before then hitting him again in midair while he's reeling from the blow. The ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

You say all that as if Toriyama himself isn't the main driving factor. The anime hasn't returned yet, the anime has been referenced, the ORIGINAL MANGA has been referenced, and it's by the man himself. This isn't an old DBZ movie situation. This is a BoG/RoF situation. This is the current canon unti...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I'll concede the point when and if I see this in Dragon Ball Super. Until then? It's no different than the Janemba movie or any other. In Broly, Goku and Vegeta were fusing for the first time as if the Janemba movie never existed. So, I'm going by the old rules until they make a point of changing i...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Well, it's Toriyama's next big chapter into the overall DBS story, so the film as a whole is canonical to the main continuity. Anyways, I think the film does a decent enough job giving us some gauges for where the characters lie compared to one another, at least in a general sense. I'll concede the...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

If SSB Goku can barely fight Ikari Broly albeit to a standstill albeit with a slowly growing edge due to better combat skill, I've no doubt that he couldn't fight Jiren at all anywhere close to full power. Not only is Jiren an impressive martial artist in overall skill, but the power gap was so mass...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

How much stronger do you guys suppose Ultra Instinct and HP Jiren are than SSB Fusion? I've seen a lot of things thrown around. Exactly the same level, weaker, slightly stronger, dozens of times stronger, and even hundreds of times stronger. Personally, I think the truth is somewhere between slight...

So, I've thrown this out before, but how powerful do you guys think the base Saiyans were in the Broly movie before Broly amped up with Oozaru power to surpass Super Saiyan Vegeta? Goku, Vegeta, and Broly were all pretty much equal in power in their base forms before Broly started adapting and drawi...
