Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Yeah, I can't recall every detail or anything, but the manga version of Super seems to lean pretty heavily towards "Goku and Vegeta only have god-level power in their god-forms." Which would be a hugely welcome relief compared to the inconsistent mess of the anime version.

Re: Should Z get yet another redub in English?

If it's ever going to happen, it would not come from Funimation. As others have pointed out, they've shown above all else that they're perfectly content delivering DBZ in sub-par formats, and that includes keeping their shitty old dub of it. No, if DBZ is ever going to get a proper redub, it would a...

What vegetable did a Namekian eat?
If nothing else, we see Piccolo eat senzu a decent number of times throughout the story. That shows they can eat physical food and gain nutrition from it. They just don't need to.

Re: Another Misconception Regarding Piccolo

How Piccolo realized he was weaker isn't really important. It could be inherited knowledge from Kami about how strong the Grand Kaio is supposed to be, it could retroactively be the intimidating "pressure" of a godly ki user, or any number of other things. But one way or another, we know for a fact...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Regardless of that book's authority or lack thereof, that power placement for Kaioshin does make sense. It's significantly stronger than Piccolo, but still decidedly inferior to Dabra or the current adult Super Saiyans.

Re: Why did Super Boo reverted to Kid Boo instead of Grey Skinny Boo after Good Boo was torn out from inside?

The way I see it, the grey Majin Boo wasn't a complete being. He was basically just an empty shell formed from pure evil that imitated Fat Boo, without a soul of his own. But somehow during the time he spent with the other Boo absorbed, he managed to magically copy-paste a soul for himself, and thus...

Re: Is Future Trunks' SSJ2 A Form That Is Unique To Him?

Didn't Trunks actually have a line saying something like "I've never been satisfied with the power this form gives either" right before he powered up in SS2? That's the kicker that tells me it's a "beyond SS2" state instead of just simply being how strong his SS2 is. He didn't think vanilla SS2 was ...

Re: Is Future Trunks' SSJ2 A Form That Is Unique To Him?

I figure that it's the same kind of thing as the Grade forms from the Cell arc. With time and training Trunks basically figured out a way to tap into "beyond Super Saiyan 2" power and pump himself up with it, but for some reason or another he's incapable of making a full-blown Super Saiyan 3 transfo...

If you have an informed and worthwhile point to make, then make it. A "no u" and a link to someone else's 20-minute-long YouTube video is not a response that anyone here is going to respect or care about.

Re: The base Saiyajins in the Boo saga

We have at best a handful of indirect implications that the base Saiyans are stronger than the likes of Freeza/Piccolo/Shin, and then one solid, very-direct actual statement saying that they're not. I'm pretty sure the direct statement takes priority. The Boo-arc implications to the contrary can all...

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...

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.
