Re: Is Goku's stupidity at least partially an act?

I've said this before, but something that I think DB largely forgot as it became more focused on large-scaled battles and power ups is that Goku's big thing is that he's a genius battle strategist and can quickly come up with tactics at a moment's notice. This is something that is really stressed i...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

What I miss is making animated gifs with parts of new episodes. You can't really do that with the manga--not in the same way. Super's filler was a mixed bag imo. Some I liked, some I didn't. I feel like it's what's missing from the manga though, which feels to me too straightforward and sterile. Li...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

A big problem with training gains in the latest material is that we don't often see how much progress the heroes have made due to a lack of direct comparisons either by dialogue or by proxy of opponents accompanied by proxy dialogue comparisons. Like, how much stronger is SSB now? How much stronger ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I think a "phased battle power" structuring of DBS's antagonists works for me, personally. Golden Freeza, Hit, Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black, Toppo, and (initial) Merged Zamasu? Around the level of SSB with some minor differences in escalation as they went along. (Anime-only) Giant Corrupt Merged Zam...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I never understood how fans think Jiren is greater than Broly either. The power necessary to defeat Broly escalated from a singular transformation [Ultra Instinct], against Jiren; to our heroes using their strongest trump card in a Blue Gogeta fusion. Easy: Ultra Instinct has been played up as this...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Is it possible that Beerus only used less than 10% of his power against SSG during the BoG arc? He said he used that against Ssj2 Vegeta, so it wouldn't make sense to use less against Goku who was far stronger. My personal fix for this (knowing that even SSB-level Fusion is still in contention for ...

Just put the latest 3 characters in the same general range. Al of them are the only opponents in the series to actually eclipse past standard God of Destruction level, and they could all fight one another and be relatively even like the Gods of Destruction do among one another putting aside outside ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

I'm fine with Broly getting as strong as he did. He had that classic modern Saiyan penchant for getting stronger mid-battle, having a ton of untapped potential due to his inherent limited training, the uncontrollable might of humanoid Oozaru power, the power of rage increasing his power further as h...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

The Bojack movie was due to them not being able to come up with anything to salvage that trainwreck of a movie as far as abridging goes.

They were working on scripts and writing for months on end with nothing good to show for it, and certainly not for lack of trying.

Re: Who discovered the Saiyan forms?

I assume Oozaru was discovered the first time a Saiyan with a tail looked at a full moon. SSJ1 and Super Saiyan God was discovered by Yamoshi. Actually, the original Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan God were different people. The original Super Saiyan was (presumably? Toriyama never specifies if he wa...

Re: What is the best format for Dragon Ball Super moving forward?

Definitely don't want a weekly anime suffering from early pre-production issues. I'm fine with the anime going about its own adaptation compared to the manga (it helps both mediums to be distinct in my eyes, gives people some different flavour), just as long as it has a good pre-production and plann...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

They may occasionally have some unexpected choices and reasoning, but they've never been contrarian for its own sake. As Lani said in the very first DBcember when the first Super Saiyan form's first appearance was number 1 of their top 24 moments, some things are obvious because they're right. And o...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

My big point of disagreement with this year's DBCember is that I think Kaioken and Fusion should have been elligible. Yes, they are unquestionably techniques, but technique and transformation are not mutually exclusive things. With those 2, I think it's fair they weren't excluded. Fusion creates en...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Definitely worthy of the top 3. It's such a shame the Moro arc has turned it into just another conscious transformation. I also prefer Omen over MUI, as I think it's by far one of the best concepts introduced in the franchise. I think most fans of the form (myself included) agree that the precursor...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Yeah, none of those really stand out based on the criteria that Lani, Kaiser, and Kirran set.

Seriously, if Super Saiyan 2 only makes it to number 3 and Super Saiyan is still left, it can really only leave Ultra Instinct.

I don't see how.

While it is partially a technique, it's also definitely a transformation for Goku. And what other form could honestly make number 2 after Super Saiyan out of the ENTIRE franchise?

I mean, wasn't suppressed Moro arc UI Omen Goku implied to be on ToP UI's level? If he was, I missed that part. When was that said? Some folks made that claim on the basis that Ultra Instinct Omen Goku this time around was said to be stronger than ever with a few hyperbole statements to support the...
