Re: GT and misogyny

yeah aren't there a lot of jokes about how she's like ashamed of her True Self ? ugh. it's been 6 years so i can't really remember much. I recently re-watched the episode for this thread, actually. She's ashamed to be born of the wish for panties, she calls her monster form her 'true form' but bare...

Re: Saganbo was extremely surprised to hear that Yuzun.. *SPOILERS*

Let's just add it to the mountain of powerscaling inconsistencies we already have in this franchise. What is?? Why are you in damage control mode?! There is no “inconsistency” here when it comes to powerscaling, just because you personally don’t like it.. This is literally what the evidence shows t...

Dragonball memes (less well known ones)

This thread isn't for things like over 9000, TFS memes, Ultra Instinct parodies, etc. but smaller memes that are still seen sometimes. I'll start off with one that is usually called "Next Time on Dragon Ball Z", or "On The Next Exciting Episode of Dragon Ball Z". It's a parody of the English dub ann...

Re: Saganbo was extremely surprised to hear that Yuzun.. *SPOILERS*

Eh, villains overestimating both themselves and their minions is nothing new. This screams like an instant dismissal to me without any willingness on your part to look at the objective evidence and take things from there. It’s a coping mechanism. I want you to look at the evidence and discuss it fr...

Re: Can someone endure the Kienzan (original manga-specific discussion)

Well if we take Krillin from the Saiyan saga when he first used it, and have him throw it at SSJ Vegeto from the Buu saga, somehow I doubt it would do much, if any, damage.

Again, the closest thing we've gotten to this is the battle in Resurrection F. And that was entertaining.

Perhaps it's harder to download information into a human brain than to program it into a computer, so 17 and 18 forgot some things.
Why would there even be a need to "download" it? It's a brain. Just have them memorize it.
Then maybe they forgot.

Re: What if the Freeza arc had a Return of the King climax?

Yeah that all sounds too epic for Dragon Ball. If Freeza had an entire army at his disposal, the Z-Senshi would lose. There was never any need for too many soldiers because Namek had such a small population, and with only so many warriors. Ultimately in a series about martial artists you end up wit...

Re: I REALLY hope that... <MANGA SPOILERS>

I think the dragon will just tell him something he can do to become more powerful, or give him an object he can use, or maybe send him some place he can get stronger. It won't just instantly make him the strongest.

Freeza knows that fusion is possible as of Dragonball Super: Broly, although that was from the dance, not the potara.
I'm sure that he and everyone else also saw Kefla merge with the Potara at the ToP.
Forgot about that. Although I think he was busy with Dyspo at the time, IIRC.

Nothing has been retconned. It's just that different characters have different levels of mastery of these techniques.

What if the Dragonballs were used to wish someone back to life who had died of old age or a serious medical condition? Would they just come back and die again a few minutes later?

Re: In a fighting series, why is it problematic to discuss the power-scaling of the characters?

It isn't, but the complaint is that some people take it to an extreme and focus on that aspect over everything else.
