It would also be great if the next Xenoverse allowed us to create a genderless character!
What exactly would this look like?
Freeza... even though he's technically male. But can you really tell by looking at him?

Re: Could SSJ3 Goku survive Vegeta's Final Explosion?

Maybe if he focused all of his ki into guarding first.

Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

What If: Broly defended Gogeta Blue? Would be have granted him mercy? He was in full-on Berserker mode, so no. He might have destroyed the Earth and then Whis would have to reverse time. What if Vegeta had contributed his ki to the Genki Dama against Jiren? How much of a difference would it have ma...

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

I liked the Universal Tournament, and I liked the Tournament of Power. It's just that they did them both so close together that was the problem. Even then, the ToP did feel like it was increasing the stakes, even if we already had a pretty good idea how it would end. The idea of the thing being a t...

I liked the music. Also was Hearts doing Rozie's style with those ki blasts? It looked like it.

Re: Vic Mignogna

What's Kiwifarms again? ...Let's put it this way. The site was literally founded for the sole purpose of tracking and mocking the person who wrote Sonichu.

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

How do you figure? Anyone who believes that they are 'married' to a fictional character either needs mental help, or is just sad. Was that what they meant? Much like ABED I thought they just meant shipping, which isn't inherently queer. Also finding a fictional character, whether in a movie or anim...

Re: God Ki and Evil Ki

If we're talking about Cumber, let's also mention that in the first Xenoverse, Goku and Beerus' God ki allowed them to resist Demigra's corruption.

Marrying 2D characters and having relationships with them is certainly not heterosexual.

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

The younger staff with more wide-ranging tastes definitely have an effect on the characters being more queer and gender and sex non-conforming. It also helps that there us a genuine fandom for queer characters and themes. Otaku are by nature queer, even if their relationships with 3D partners are h...

Re: Why wasn't the central pillar in the ToP destroyed?

Probably Daishinkan using reality-altering magic, he could've rewound time to before the pillar got struck and altered the trajectory of any stray blast or simply made the pillar totally indestructible to Ki. The greatest Angel likely still has some surprises up his sleeve that he hasn't revealed t...

Why wasn't the central pillar in the ToP destroyed?

The rest of the arena was completely shattered, but the pillar (which wasn't any more durable) survived until the end. Since it was used to mark time, that seems awfully convenient. What if it had been destroyed? Would Daishinkan have called a time out in order to fix it?

Okay, changing his icon to the pride flag after banning him is pretty fucking incredible. Kudos to whichever mod that was.
I might be wrong but I recall seeing his icon like that before he was banned, so I thought he did it to be ironic or something.

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

I was thinking maybe a scene like a female character (a villain?) trying to seduce Whis, but he just says 'sorry, you're barking up the wrong tree' and then proceeds to kick her ass.

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

If a commercial product is being made and sold for profit, then obviously the consumers have the right to decide what they do and don't want to see in it, and vote on it with their wallets. Of course you can ask for things, I just think it is a massive mistake for creators to listen. There is a spo...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

So you get to decide which complaints are 'valid' or not? I'm saying the ones that are valid are those related to consistency. If a rule is set up in any story then the reader or viewer is going to expect the story to follow it through. Let me put it this way, valid complaints are ones the author s...
