Re: Which movie do you prefer, 12 or 13?

13, for all that is good and cool about it, ultimately falls into the "ok, time to wrap it up, just have ~goku~ no-sell and one hit KO". Given its patronizing title, it has to be seen as the herald of the Era of Godku - it was followed by the Anime Kid Buu fight and GT, after all. 12, meanwhile, is ...

Re: If zenkais won't work if they're self-inflicted, how did Goku get so many on his way to Namek?

Other than calling it a plothole/mistake, the only thing I can think of is that there's some difference between how Goku was doing it and how Vegeta thought of it. Goku was firing off a beam on a curve then steeling himself to try to tank it, while Vegeta presumably would drop his power put his hand...

We actually do, but they're weak and not very useful. For example, astronauts have reported lower back pain because their toes instinctively curl in microgravity - the instinct that once kept us from falling out of trees.

Ok, so why didn't Vegeta increase that much while training to his limits before the Buu arc?

Re: Why do people hold Ultimate Gohan or Gotenks so highly?

Gohan seeing through Hildy's phasing was a neat credit too. Like when Vegeta figures out Janemba's teleporting is a weakness in 12.

Re: Why doesn't Vegeta declare himself king?

Basically, Vegeta doesn't care about Saiyan society or ranking except that where he was born means he should be the best. He doesn't declare himself King because it doesn't matter to him.

Re: Death Battle: Goku vs Superman 2

Goku was faster than light as a kid. That's why it took him as an adult a day to fly down Snake Way, and why everybody said it was impossible for him to get Roshi's glasses so fast.

Re: Why do people hold Ultimate Gohan or Gotenks so highly?

No, feats show: SS Gotenks > SS Vegeta > SS Gohan. Which is obvious.

That they recolored Gohan's hair after fans complained doesn't rejigger the structure.



Also, that would make Goku and Vegeta stronger in base than they were in SS2 in the Buu arc.

Goku or Vegeta ~training~ enough to overcome the enormous Fusion Dance boost is also bullshit. Which is a pretty hilarious side effect of the Kid Buu filler wanking of Goku.

Re: Why doesn't Vegeta declare himself king?

Freeza was likely against it for most of his life. Had Vegeta succeeded in overthrowing Freeza, he probably would've declared himself king. But then Goku goes Super Saiyan, and Vegeta starts chasing after him. Likewise, if Vegeta had destroyed the Androids and proven himself superior, he probably wo...

Re: Why do people hold Ultimate Gohan or Gotenks so highly?

What BoG implies is Beerus >> everyone. The only comparison we have for the heroes is that Vegeta was weaker than SS3 Goku, and he surpassed him with his rage boost. There is nothing that compares Goku with Gohan or Gotenks. True, but the same goes for Movie 13. "Power doesn't matter, we're all out...
