Honestly, I don't remember how strong is old Slug.
Around as strong as non-SS Goku is in that movie. Slug tells Goku that he might have had a chance against him before he regained his youth, but now that he's in his prime again, he can beat Goku around effortlessly.

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

What if the various tournaments in the series took a page out of real life and instituted weight classes? Or rather, power level classes? Like how in boxing, guys who weigh between 130 and 135 (lightweight) wouldn't fight guys who weigh between 160 and 168 (super middleweight) because everyone know...

Re: Where did the powercreep really start?

Herms first pointed it out in his series retrospective with Geekdom: visual escalation disappears in the Saiyan arc. Once Vegeta says he can destroy a planet (and actually does it, in the anime) all bets are off. As Herms put it, you can watch Goku's fight with Vegeta in isolation and easily come aw...

Re: Kid Goku didn't have a power-level of ten at the beginning of DB.

1. Power levels aren't linear. Piccolo Daimao in the hundreds still had to expend notable effort to blow up a city, while Piccolo Jr. at 408 was able to blow up the moon, which requires literally quadrillions of times more energy. 2. A bear with a power level of 5 will still be much stronger than a ...

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

Was Toyotaro implying that if those women didn't have power greater than Roshi's, he would've just sexually assaulted them and they'd have been powerless to stop it? So much for responsible usage of martial arts... Tenshinhan not being able to insult people is so weird to me. That was all his dialog...

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

It's always a pet peeve of mine when it comes to fictional aliens having accents from Earth when they are not even from that planet. Jeece having an Australian accent comes to mind. Everyone in the universe speaks the same language but you're bothered by an accent? I feel like there’s a difference ...

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

I recently learned that kid Trunks in the Funimation dub (one of the aforementioned unbearable raspy child voices) was voiced by Laura Bailey. I wonder what the director was telling her because she is not a bad VA normally, yet her Trunks was atrocious.

Re: Thoughts on a potential Netflix series.

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

I'm not sure how much influence DBZA had on Super, either way i'm glad it exists. I’m not sure about Super but in the Broli movie the “*I heard this planet was repugnant” joke seemed to be a nod to the “You just use words you hear other people use to sound smarter” gag in DBZA. That line was in the...

Re: Top Three Favorite Fights

All three of the main Saiyan arc battles have a great sense of progression, tension, and viscerality that is never really matched by any of the battles before or after, on top of emphasizing teamwork, a relative rarity for this series. So I guess my top three would be: 1. Goku, Gohan, Krillin, and Y...

Re: Life lessons taught in Dragon Ball?

Don't get too cocky and complacent; no one is infallible and untouchable, and thinking you are and using it as an excuse for carelessness is just setting yourself up for humiliation.
