Re: What in the Universe Survival Arc did you hate most?

My biggest issue was probably how it was "6th and 7th universes vs. everyone" rather than having many fights between the other universes, and the related issue of the 7th universe fighters being "out of energy" after one fight but then immediately powering up to higher forms again in the next episod...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I just realized I actually don't mind Vegeta's "Veggie Mercury" mustache in GT. It actually kinda makes sense that he'd grow one, considering that all the older adult Saiyans we've known had mustaches (Nappa, King Vegeta) and Vegeta's getting into their age range by this time period. The one thing t...

Re: How strong would Piccolo have become if he had his potential unlocked on Namek?

I always wondered if maybe Nail had already had his potential unlocked, and this was passed on to Piccolo when they fused. That would explain why Piccolo went from maybe-stronger-than-Nail, maybe-just-abnormally-strong-compared-to-every-other-Namekian to over a million right away, even though this w...

Re: Do you prefer “human” or “mortal” for the non-deities?

"Ningen" can translate as the specific "human"... and also the more general "person/people." It doesn't necessarily have the connotations that the English word "human" has -- as in, referring to our species specifically. When someone says "humans" in English it means humans , Homo sapiens, those mos...

Re: Could SSRage be connected to SS3?

I wonder if what we know as SSj3 is really just "SSj2 Grade 3" (complete with a crippling downside like SSj Grade 3's speed loss) and what Trunks got was the actual Super Saiyan 3. I mean, "Super Saiyan 2" and "Super Saiyan 3" were just names Goku came up with on a whim when explaining the forms to ...

Re: Which did it better, GT or Super?

17 doing it over a decade makes no sense because we know that in F. Trunks' future, he was still weak af. #17 in Trunks' timeline was unrivaled in power. He had no reason to train because he was already the strongest being on the planet the moment he was released from his pod, with #18 being just a...

Re: A16 should be in ToP instead of Tenshinhan

I mean, he might be for all we know - the manga itself never says anything about what Goku was doing in the afterlife during the timeskip. He does say something about how he wasn't able to try out the Fusion Dance because there wasn't anyone he could fuse with. I can't remember the exact line but u...

Re: Goku and Chici technically not married?

So is it wholly possible that Chichi is a widowed woman even after Goku is revived? Are they even really together still? Legally? If Earth in Dragonball considers a marriage to be over when somebody's known to be dead, and their marriage was "official" in the first place, then she is probably "offi...

Re: Would It Have Been Better For Goku To Train With Kaioshin Instead Of North Kaio?

The East Kaioshin has more in the way of raw power, but he's not really a martial arts master and probably hasn't ever really trained anyone despite being around for over 5 million years. In the long run this probably wouldn't work out that well -- Goku might be able to do without the Kaio-ken if he...

Re: Goku and Chici technically not married?

Chi-Chi and Goku live out in the middle of nowhere, so it's entirely possible that nobody outside the family and friends ever really found out about the whole dead-Goku thing. Especially since they knew he was going to be wished back in a year. There aren't really many people out there to notice Gok...

Re: Who is Turles?

I guess if they're related at all, it'd only be because some ancestral Saiyan with the "Goku Haircut Gene" had a looooot of kids. And then they had kids, and they had kids, and they had kids, etc... until a significant portion of the low-class Saiyan population ends up born with a Goku haircut.

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

How strong would Majin Vegeta be if he achieved Super Saiyan 3 and who would be the strongest person he would beat? He'd be as strong as SSj3 Goku was during the Buu Saga -- they were evenly matched in SSj2 form, so the same should go for their SSj3 forms. As for who he could beat -- according to G...

Re: So...is there a REAL reason as to why Vegeta doesn't have SSJ3 or SSG in the Anime?

Yeah, as far as SSj3 it seems like he skipped it after seeing the energy drain Goku suffered and judging the form to be near useless in a living body. His "mutated SSj2" that he got when Beerus slapped Bulma seems to be better in every way than SSj3 anyway, assuming it's something he can still use a...

Re: How would a Fusion of Goku and Gohan work (transformation-wise)?

Maybe going Super Saiyan would result in Gotenks-style black-and-gold striped hair. XD So basically the "Goku half" of the fusion going Super Saiyan while the "Gohan half" is just going to "Ultimate/Mystic" full power without physically transforming. As for names, I've always had the thought that th...

Who's the strongest character who *wouldn't* break the punch machine?

I was randomly reminded of the Tenkaichi Budokai punching machines that were used to narrow down the field by disqualifying the weakest fighters in the Buu Saga, and that got me wondering. Vegeta didn't hold back his punch at all and destroyed the machine, and we saw #18 rack up a score of over 700 ...

Re: Could The Z Senshi Have Become Strong Enough To Fight ROF Freeza Without SSJG/SSJB?

I think they have a chance... but only if they go out of their way to kill Freeza BEFORE he goes full power. In Freeza's first form, he's only confirmed stronger than Piccolo and Gohan... though this Gohan's exact level of power is pretty vague, he might still have some of his "Ultimate" form's powe...

Re: How would a three way fusion work.

For a three-way Potara you'd need to have three earrings in the same set... which would mean they'd need to come from a Kaioshin with three ears. Or two earrings on one ear, but giving a Kaioshin three ears is more fun. Let's say in one of the universes Zen'oh destroyed in the past, Shinjin have thr...
