Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

Yeah I always found that really conspicuous given how much sense he'd make to include in the Time Patrol, as he'd stand out as pretty unique.

The lack of a TP Piccolo similarly seemed strange to me. I guess it's just a Saiyan only thing lol.

Re: Where can Saiyan transformations go from here?

If the best that even Toriyama can come up with anymore are cheap, lazy, unoriginal recolors of past forms, then I hope this is the end of new ones for a very long time. I'm fairly convinced that Toriyama used up the last of his form-designing creative juices with Super Saiyan God, since that was t...

Re: "You're a Weeb"

That's not the common usage of the term, it's similar in meaning to "geek" but carries a lot more social stigma (but then again, so did nerd and geek until more recently). It could also be comparable to something like "fanboy/girl" which can be used to describe people who take their fandom to obsess...

Person who actually fought and killed Cell: didn't know to specifically look for his nucleus

Person who was born well after Cell's death and never interacted with him before, nor showed any prior knowledge of his abilities: knows exactly how to deal with his improved capabilities.

Re: Movie Tournament: The Champion

Re: Who is a Mary Sue in Drago Ball.

He also regretted doing once the fighting actually started. Yeah, Goku won't choose to use fusion if he thinks he can win without it. But he will also be the first to suggest fusion when he's outmatched. Originally, he wanted to use fusion over using Super Saiyan 3. He clearly doesn't have a strong ...

Re: So Piccolo can suddenly sense SSJ Blue now??? Wtf

The manga has never indicated that Blue could not be sensed (it didn't cover the events of Resurrection F) and the TOP has several instances of the characters seemingly sensing the ki of Goku or Vegeta while they're using Blue. It seems consistent that the ki of Super Saiyan Blue can be sensed in th...

Was Gohan ever a main character? Or ya'll confuse "high power levels" as "main character" when the kid's PL was recorded by Raditz's scouter?
Uh, he was literally called the main character within the manga. I don't think it's us getting confused.

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

I fail to see how "Kuririn manages to get almost as strong as Goku's weakest form" is more interesting than what we're getting. Sounds more like prioritizing a preferred character over the story. Like, gaining control over UI isn't super new or exciting, but it's a logical progression for Goku that ...

I'm a little more of a retro gamergirl so forgive me for, like, totes not gettin' it but...is it normal for the DLC to be so intricate?

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

That's not a screw-up. Goku could have defeated either of those enemies without the Warp-Kamehameha, so it's fine (especially Babidi lol). He didn't even fight either of those characters, so not a screw-up at all. And even then, the Warp KHH is nowhere near as powerful as just being able to constant...

If someone is going around making fake allegations against JYB, I'd assume they were a Vic supporter acting in bad faith, because they're the ones who think making fake allegations are so easy and immediately effective.

Does anyone know what the "powered up" setting for Broly (DBS)'s power amrour is in training mode? It's in character settings, and lets you set things like if Goku's Dragon Fist is normal or always does Super Saiyan 4 (regardless of teammates being down). But I can't see anything different with Brol...

Last year Japan stopped labelling Majin Vegeta as Destruction Prince (or whatever the accurate translation was) and fully embraced calling him Majin Vegeta.
