Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

In other words did Babidi's power up make Vegeta stronger all around or did it just give him access to Super Saiyan 2? Vegeta definitely already had Super Saiyan 2 before the Boo arc kicked off. There's a few hints to it in the story, and one or two guidebooks flat-out tell us that he and Goku both...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Yeah, we're never exactly told how pre-Bobbidi Vegeta compared to 7-years-ago Gohan. It seems to me like he's at least in that same ballpark, considering how confident he seemed even when all he noted was that Gohan "looked soft." It wasn't until later when Gohan actually powered up to fight people ...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Predictions aren't the same as stated facts, and there's a suspicious lack of direct, "wow, he really is [stronger than Boo / exactly as strong as Goku said]" quotes about pre-RoSaT Gotenks. Just a handful of more generic "wow so strong" and "well he seems confident" lines instead. So you really hav...

Re: Dragon Ball Evolution: A 10th Anniversary Retrospective

There are few things I've experienced in my life that I actually regret being hopeful about, but Dragon Ball Evolution may very well be at the top of that short list. I was on the "cautious optimism bordering on denial" side of the debate leading up to the movie's release, and while I still enjoyed ...

Re: Caulifa Is A Terrible Character. Here's Why.

Yeah, no, this thread isn't going to be a thing.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt that this is merely genuine but poorly thought-out, rather than an intentional trolling attempt.

Re: Goku saying Vegeta wants to get Gohan and Gotenks to fight

Why is there any meaning left when even the Manga evidences and anything which goes against his arguments is irrelevant but his indirect "only logical explanations" are better? there *is* evidence in the Kid Boo sub-arc but he refuses to acknowledge it. I've explained that evidence multiple times n...

This thread was inactive for almost a month, and if it's only going to continue with more of the same "you poor biased plebs and your silly headcanons not giving me an echo chamber" over and over instead of any real conversation, then it's better off not continuing at all.

Re: How Strong Were Madōshi Babidi And Majin Dabura?

Got to remember that Goku is making a broad guess about Dabra's strength, and one based primarily on just his movement since they can't seem to actually sense his ki. "Probably about the same as Cell" covers a pretty broad range. Even presuming that means Cell in his Perfect form, that can still be ...

Re: Saiyan-Earthling Hybrid Tail Chances

I like to think it has to do with those mysterious S-cells. In most cases, having a tail prevents S-cells from building, and vice-versa having a high S-cell count will prevent tails from regrowing. Gohan is the only one of the demi-Saiyans born to a parent with a low S-cell count (18/19-year-old Gok...

This is the type of discussion that's better off being raised in our dedicated thread for fan-made power levels. Speculation about attack multipliers/boosts is really all the same territory.

Re: Something I thought of regarding the SS2 Gohan scene in Japanese

Long story short... because Goku isn't the heroic, justice-and-peace-loving type, but Gohan is.

The song's lyrics reflect Gohan's motivations and personality fairly well, but they wouldn't reflect Goku's any more than his dumb "Hope of the Universe" dub speech does.

Re: Goku saying Vegeta wants to get Gohan and Gotenks to fight

Pure Boo does not have to be stronger than any of the heroes, including Gohan, to be a serious threat to the Earth and everyone on it. He already demonstrated that when he first appeared and immediately blew up the planet without hesitation. If the still-remaining Fat Boo was to somehow spawn anothe...

And again, we only know he really could have taken care of Fat Boo because he actually admitted it later.

Re: Pure Boo > Evil Boo makes more narrative sense?

I've always found arguments based on undermining the sincerity of Goku's statements a bit of a desperate attempt to find support for a pre-conceived claim, rather than looking at the matter objectively with no preference of outcome. That's kind of the crux of this, isn't it? If your argument for so...
