Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Just something I'd like to note, everyone... if we're going to be posting long, comprehensive lists complete with notes and stuff as actual posts in this thread (as opposed to offsite links or something) , let's try to use spoiler tags to keep everything compartmentalized and compact, to make it eas...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Remember this is the “unofficial power level discussion” thread. There isn’t such a rule in this thread that every list has to strictly follow numbers given in guidebooks or directly by Toriyama. It’s not a disrespect of the original work, just an attempt of trying to make a little sense of it, des...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

You said Buuhan is just adding Gohan and Pure Buu but what about Goten, Trunks, and Piccolo? If I am misunderstanding then my apologies Their power is so small and inconsequential compared to Ultimate Gohan's that I usually just don't even bother factoring them in. If Gohan is at 150, then the comb...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Where would you guys put each major villain of the main saga, power level wise? Vegeta is at 18,000 and Freeza is at 120 million . We've had official numbers for both those guys for almost 30 years now, no debate or speculation needed. Battle of Gods gave us an upper ceiling for Goku's base-form po...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

"We currently have no plans on continuing with the Buu Saga, in either our original style, or in the style of the ShortZ, at this time."

Well, that settles it then. The last tenuous thread holding onto my interest in any of TFS' work has been severed.

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Games have been making up their own power levels for years. Those numbers don't really have any bearing on anything but the game itself.

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I'm totally down with TFS switching methods and using their own 3D animation assets for DBZ-related content from now on. It'll give them a lot more creative freedom AND hopefully also get Toei to piss off with all the constant bogus copyright claims. I liked the first Dragon Short a lot and I'm exci...

Re: Nappa & Vegeta final attacks power boost?

This thread managed to slip by me at first, but I still want to add my two hefty cents. I don't think power amplification is quite so cut-and-dry, being strictly either "can amp your attacks a lot" or "can't amp your attacks at all." It makes sense to me that, when you really put your full effort in...

Re: What ranking Saiyan was Raditz?

Within the Saiyan hierarchy, Raditz was a low-class, while Nappa was a mid/elite-class and Vegeta was a super-elite.

But in the ranks of Freeza's forces, both Raditz and Nappa were of equal rank as regular soldiers, and only Vegeta held some sort of higher status.

Re: Are there any examples of a character winning a battle through strategy instead of strength?

I think Vegeta's second fight with Zarbon might count. It's quite possible Vegeta was still the weaker one of the two, what with him still being at less than 30k when he was so soundly trounced at 24k before. But he used the strategy of blinding Zarbon with sand and then landing some solid preemptiv...

Re: Pure Boo was definitely Stronger than Gohan

Bringing in Gohan and/or Gotenks to fight isn't necessarily the safer solution though. They each already had opportunities to defeat Boo but screwed it up. Not because they were weaker, but because they were brash, careless, or actually outsmarted. So against a Boo who's now weaker but more unhinged...

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 ...
