Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

The flight thing doesnt really matter since there's no real flying mechanic in the game itself, so he'd be just fine dashing his way to opponents like everyone else. This has been a topic of debate for ages- there's no proper "flight" mechanic outside of Zamasu, but everyone can superdash and it's ...

Re: SAY-IN - SPECIAL BEAM CAN-IN - SUN GOKU - DESTRUCTO DISK | Why does Dragon Ball STILL suffer with these shortcomings

I’ve heard people say that the reason we still have terms like “Special Beam Cannon” and “Destructo Disk” is because Toei or Bandai or whoever insisted on that FUNimation stick with them. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but if it is, it would pretty much be in line with how Toho treats “Godzill...

It's not that he considers it a loss because Goku was the better fighter, he hates that Goku got as far as he did. Vegeta lived with this caste system mentality that regardless of how much work a fighter did, elites are elites, and third class warriors are third class warriors. Goku should never ha...

Any scene where Chi-Chi is arguing with him.
This is the only correct answer. Because there's no winning in these confrutations. There's only Chi-chi calming down and letting Goku off the hook.

Everyone else Goku fights will eventaully lose.

Re: “There is nothing to learn from Dragon Ball,” says Akira Toriyama’s editor, Kazuhiko Torishima

If you've watched the series and was able to take something away from it that help you, so be it. Toriyama's just saying he never tried to do any of that, and not only is that fine, but greatly welcomed. No need to get your feelings hurt over this. And no need to be bothered enough to reach a stance...

Re: Toriyama's depiction of S-Cells is unlike midichlorians: people hung up on potential.

Anytime you start going this deep into discussing things in a piece of fiction, the first thing you need to ask yourself: How much effort did the creator put into this? Because if they are just making stuff up as they go along and not adding any sort of research into it, you will not get anywhere. E...

Re: Were Goku's gestures of mercy to enemies naivete or could they have worked out?

Nappa and Ginyu could probably be reformed. Nappa's a saiyan, and as such probably just loves all the fighting he gets to do. Direct all that energy to stopping other bad guys, or even just sparring with Goku. Ginyu is loyal to Freeza, and would require more work. We honestly know so little about hi...

Re: What Would It Take For Krillin, Tien, Piccolo, and Yamcha to Catch up to Goku and Vegeta in a Satisfying Way?

As said above, they could be haxed. I've always wanted to see Tien combine Kikoho with Kaioken. Are you trying to murder this man? Just thinking about that combo will kill him so hard, no number of dragonball wishes will be able to bring him back. We could have them train with someone who teaches t...

Re: It's fun reading through older threads and articles!

What intrigues me is this prevailing sense around 2005-2007 that there was a glut of mediocre Dragon Ball titles for the PS2. In retrospect, it sounds hilarious because this was the heyday of Budokai 3, Sparking NEO/METEOR, etc., but I can see where they might be coming from. I myself forget Infini...

King Piccolo and Dr. Gero both got their revenge

The Reincarnation and Ultimate Creation both fulfilled their intended purposes by killing Goku. It seems like no one really talks about the victories for those villains. Also, Ten defeated Goku as an antaganist. Or, was he even still much of an antaganist at that point in the story. Vegeta has never...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Abridged is NOT dragon ball it's a parody show. You don't care about the characters because it's not that sort of show. It's not a retelling, it's a parody. It presumes you've already seen the series. And a big part of the Saiyan arc is Piccolo's journey which most of it is predicated on being the ...

Beyond that, there was also Crazy Rich Asians last year and there’s also the ...

I loved the movie but I have a question for everyone: why does it matter if something is 'overrated'?
Saying something is "overrated" is basically saying: "Stop liking this thing more than me!"

I hope so. It's killing any tension for me with Super. Super has been more about "How will Goku and Vegeta defeat this foe" as opposed to "Will Goku and Vegeta survive this encounter" and it's really killed any tension for me. When they announced the Tournament of Power and said that "the universes...

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

GT is it's own canon, the movies are their own canon, Super is it's own canon, the Super manga is it's own canon, etc. I think so. Obviously a work exists to itself. That's really not actually saying anything. Saying "GT exists to itself" is meaningless. The discussion of canon pertains to how offi...
