Frieza likely would have regardless. He achieved Golden without ever knowing that Goku and Vegeta achieved god forms.
He knew Goku survived a fight with Buu and Beerus.
Buu, yes. I don't think he found out about Goku fighting Beerus until later iirc.

Isn't that more of a meme than an actual fan theory?

Re: What do you want the next DragonBall series to be like?

I'd like DBZ levels of blood to return to the series. But maybe that's asking for too much.

Re: A state higher than Ultra Instinct?

So what, like Mega Instinct? Super Instinct? MAXIMUM OVER INSTINCT!

In all honesty, I hope it remains as something that Goku only achieves by being backed into a corner, and never something he can do on command. Kind of like what Jak does with his Dark form from the Jak and Daxter series.

Re: Is Dragon Ball too closely tied to its own zeitgeist?

Xianxia authors have a bad habit of exaggerating things, but they're in a situation where they can't not exaggerate feats: "Legendary martial artist Yuli Ban leapt 500 thousand miles in a single bound and destroyed a planet with a mere flush of his hand". That's unrelatable. It's too far beyond wha...

Although why the whole arena wouldn't have been materially built in a similar fashion is unknown to me.
Because that would have simply been more work. Put extra care to only the pillar makes perfect sense.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I'd say the hatred towards Jiren is far more justified than the Saiyan girls. And this is coming from someone who genuinely likes Jiren. Nah not really I get not liking the dude and all but the hatred for the dude is exaggerated at times and screams of pettiness every time I see a thread bitching a...

Re: What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

The cold fact is that Dragon Ball itself isn't original You can more-or-less say that about anything though. Whatever media you think invented something, some precursor element of it likely existed before it, and some element before that, and before that, and before you know it, you're approaching ...

Re: Best and Worst designs of characters

A lot of people say they don't like Jiren's design, but I like it a lot (strictly speaking about looks alone). The whole grey alien look, mixed with a superhero look, just works for some reason. Could be due to the fact that grey aliens are usually depicted as scrawny and small, and Jiren is jacked ...

Re: Best and Worst designs of characters

SSJ2 did not start as "transformation" it was simply the potential of gohan liberated when it ceased to contain itself and abandon its desires not to "fight" was gohan's personal advance as a warrior but later it became a transformation more. SSJBE is the "natural" evolution of the power of "vegeta...

Re: Best and Worst designs of characters

That SSJ2 "mental transformation" is Gohan only. No such thing exists for Goku, Trunks, or Vegeta. I would argue it was more so Gohan gaining confidence because of the power up more than anything else. Is it stated anywhere that SSJ2 has any effect on one's attitude? I personally don't think Ultra ...

Re: Best and Worst designs of characters

Super Saiyan Bluer (aka Evolution) It looks more different than SSJ1 to SSJ2 to be fair. I personally like the design. That depends how you evaluate it. If you take Gohan's SSJ1 and SSJ2 as an example, the look might not be that different. But his whole demeanor changes completely. His facial expre...

Re: Best and Worst designs of characters

worst is definitely Prum and Hermila from Dragon Ball Super. You probably don't even remember who these guys were since they were so forgettable, but they actually got an episode for themselves. Prum was a pink fat blob monster with no clothes on, and Hermila was a green bird in a speedo. I actuall...
