That was in the anime, I wouldn't expect it to apply here.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Maybe this is just like the multi-form and having each Cell by 1/4 of the original power will be the excuse used for Vegeta to spend some time not using whatever his secret power-up is without being completely outclassed by an Ultimate Gohan-level character.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

This fight is pretty lame honestly. The Kaio-ken Transcendent is silly, and it's just him smacking Goku around with no resistance until both of them are knocked out. Goku doesn't manage to do anything when that technique is pulled out, it's incredibly flat. That he hasn't showed anything new even th...

They did, there was Fist Master. Though that felt way too rooted in Dragon Ball's tropes, I suppose.

Re: Most ineffective technique?

Even with that example, though, it doesn't help with the way strength works in DB.

Like, 8 Tenshinhan's that are individually 2.5x as strong as regular Tenshinhan sound good, but they'd be significantly worse than Tenshinhan at x20 Kaio-ken - even setting aside the strain from Kaio-ken.

Re: Most ineffective technique?

Shishin no Ken/Multi-form - Cloning technique used by Tien during 23rd Budokai, used only once in manga, since you also need to divide your power and speed This is one of those techniques that Tien should have "perfected" years ago. It really shouldn't split power/speed at this late stage in the se...

Re: Had Toriyama Thought -Up The Concept of Hakaishin All The Way Back In 1995?

The term has been used several times in the franchise, I remember off the top of my head that Broly has capsules (equipment) referring to him as a God of Destruction in Budokai 3, and Luud from GT was referred to as a God of Destruction. Looking it up, the anime episode titles refer to Cell as a God...

Re: Gohan's hair

So who's actually left as competitors in this tournament?

1.Goku
2.Vegeta
3.Oob
4. Regular Pan (I think)
5.Bra
6.Zen Boo
7.Wizard Guy that beat Vegetto
8. Dr. Raichi
Who else am I missing?
Gast defeated Raichi.

If this is the quarter finals it should only be these 8 left.

Does anyone know if the latest super chapter that said Namekians come from another “realm” is exactly the same as the way demon “realm” is referred to? Or was Viz just being fancy with “another place” because the implication varies a lot
Herms has talked about this one on Twitter, here.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I like how people always trot out the same small number of pages from the original manga (ie the deliberate outliers) to justify DBM's rampant use of gore.

...sorry, what past acts does Vegetto even have to regret? He's not the one who just went on a killing spree. When he was Vegeta and let himself be taken over by Babidi, he annihilated thousands of people at the World Martial Arts tournament. All so he could fight Goku. But it was previously establ...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Oh, that's fair. I can buy the argument that Bra couldn't resist like Vegeta could.

Just not this idea that the last page put forward that everything is out of her control. Like you said, this behavior should be a sign of some pretty nasty things lurking inside her heart.

Weird, I dunno if it was in the anime but I remembered Vegeta telling Gohan to stand down because he didn't want to fight him.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

But Babidi's control is more than just blind slavery - it takes the small sliver of evil in you and makes it the whole of your personality. Vegeta resisted the slavery because of his pride, but we keep forgetting the other reason he wanted Babidi's spell - to bring all of the worst parts of himself...

Re: If Gohan entered the ROSAT with Piccolo instead of Goku, how strong would he become?

Goku was the one who came up with the idea of mastering Super Saiyan. Without that, I wouldn't expect Gohan to get anywhere near as powerful as he did. The part about Gohan saying that Goku was too soft is anime-only, he doesn't have much trouble reaching Super Saiyan in the manga. And as someone wh...

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...
