Re: Gohan thinks he can still become a Super Saiyan

It has been a power up/transformation ever since. Gohan powers up in Kaiohshin realm and then again right in Boo's face. He does not always have the same power. Piccolo could not even think of Gohan having a chance before he used the BAM! Ultimate Gohan! Shockwave! Power up! on earth. In the movies...

Re: What Makes Freeza So Special?

Actually, the quote you posted pretty much said the opposite. He mentions their infinite energy reactors and their gigantic power levels as separate things. Fair enough, but what I proposed also treated their infinite energy reactors and power levels as separate things (i.e. the reactor powers them...

Re: Did Vegeta attack the rest of Freeza's empire in the man

I think ki sensing is a bit like hearing. You don't have to actively be listening out for noise to hear a sound, especially if it's loud or out of nowhere. But at the same time, if you're distracted by something, someone can talk directly to you without you really hearing them. It's also possible to...

Re: If Cell traveled space, could he have gone far with no s

We see that Pan in End of Z was able to circle around the Earth. We also see that SSJ Gotenks flew around the Earth quickly. We don't know how quickly, of course. Being able to circle the Earth twenty times in half an hour would be pretty dang fast, but it would still take around a month to go from...

Re: What does the Z sword weigh?

It's completely like Regarder said: if you go only by the numbers Toriyama has chosen (which as rereboy pointed out, are only really consistent in that they get bigger), then it makes sense. If you try to put any more thought into it than that, then things get messy. (caveat: Kai's new planet may al...

Re: Why didnt Vegeta go SSJ2 against Kid Buu on Kaioshin Pla

I'm sure Goku would have resorted to Super Saiyan 2 if Super Saiyan hadn't been enough to push the Genki Dama. Goku's the sort of guy who only uses what's necessary.

Side note: Man, those scanlations are so bad. You're much better off referring to Herms's translations from the Strength Checker.

Re: Were there page limits when AT was writing/drawing DB?

Interesting question. I seem to have this idea in the back of my mind that it's the publishers who generally decide how many pages each mangaka gets each week, but I can't remember where I got that idea and so don't know if it's actually right or not.

Re: What Makes Freeza So Special?

Toriyama said they could improve their strength by training. I'd forgotten about that. Which interview did he say that in? Of course, it might still be conjecture to say that their power doesn't come from something artificial. After all, doesn't Gero flat out say that their power comes from a react...

Because he's a cutie . Plus I like how polite and full of himself he is and how he gradually loses that cool as time goes on. He was the epitome of "villain who's so strong he's never been threatened before", and because of that, he falls harder than anyone else. I feel like Tao Pai Pai was the onl...

Re: What if Android 16 was resurrected after the Cell Games?

As for his resurrection, shenron grants wishes so surely he has the power to magically rebuild 16 as he was before with all the same memories and what not as appossed to just saying "sorry, can't, no soul." Shenron couldn't even turn 18 into a full human. I doubt he could rebuild artifical technolo...

Re: Beerus claims that base Goku in BoG couldn't beat Freeza

"All other traits increase along with battle power" is the norm, but there's been other exceptions in the past. Like how Goku was faster than Captain Ginyu despite being a good chunk weaker. I don't find it hard to believe that Saiyans would have an edge in physical strength and toughness compared ...

Re: Why are Goten and Trunks bigger "prodigies" than Gohan?

I don't think they're necessarily all that different... it could just be that Trunks and Goten's "potential" has manifested in different ways. I like this explanation, too. Personally, I prefer it to the "Super Sperm" idea for one reason or another. Goten and Trunks have completely different person...

Re: Don't understand WHY the what-if/noncanon stuff is a pro

For some reason, everyone has their own definition of the word "canon". This leads to a lot of misunderstandings. For instance: I've heard some people say the reason why GT isn't canon is because there wasn't a manga? They probably mean that they don't think it's part of the "manga canon", meaning t...

Sorry to destroy your comment I don't think saying "ki sensing doesn't make a difference either way" destroys my comment at all, personally.

Re: Can scouters detect godly ki?

I guess the numbers would go crazy, or it would simply write "ERROR" or something similar. Godly ki is not undetectable (like the Artificial Human's "ki"), it's immeasurable. But wasn't Goku unable to detect it when it was coming towards him? It doesn't seem like it's simply immeasurable, but that ...

Re: How were #17 and #18 enhanced?

As for #19 and #20, I just figured they converted ki into some more traditional form of energy. I mean, it's not hard; if you used ki to turn a turbine, you could convert it straight into electricity. You could probably power a solar generator with a Taiyoken, too. That's certainly a possibility. M...

Re: How were #17 and #18 enhanced?

You could just say that part of their organic modification resulted in their ki taking a slightly unique form that Goku and co. can't sense. Perhaps similar to whatever unique characteristics make Beerus and SSG Goku's ki unable to be sensed by regular people in BoG. I mean, obviously 17 and 18 hav...

Re: How were #17 and #18 enhanced?

I think their Infinite Energy Reactors are S² Organs (warning: Neon Genesis Evangelion spoilers). They could harness energy from some kind of subspace.
