Re: Was Son Goku Full Powered SSJ3 against Fatty and Kid Boo

If energy is proportional to power (why wouldn't it be?), then fat Boo is more than twice as strong as SSJ2 Gohan. One problem, though... Buu was supposed to be pretty strong even if he was released too early, without the full energy (as in just SSj2 Gohan's, or even less.) I mean, yeah, it was the...

Re: Acceptable, but not exceptional: How I would have ended

I actually had the thought of Goku becoming a Kaioshin before (though this was before it was revealed that Kaioshins are their own species and come from fruit; I figured it was a title that pretty much any species can have, and the "purple/blue/etc.-skinned mohawked elf" looking species just happene...

Re: Maju Yakon: Evolutionarily Screwed?

This is a being from a species, who, presumably, would never naturally encounter light. And yet he feeds off of it. How does that make sense? How is that even possible? Please tell me that he can also eat other things, otherwise, wouldn't he have died off long ago. The other inhabitants of the plan...

Re: Do you think Freeza,Cell and Majin-Buu are immune to poi

Buu is (and even if he wasn't, his regeneration is of such a ridiculous level that it wouldn't matter.) He'd also most likely be immune to diseases, and... well, just about everything else. He's Buu. Cell would probably be effectively immune to any poison you could throw at him, between his regenera...

Re: Which 'DB Heroes' Animation Do You Want To See in Full?

Probably the one with Slug attacking the planet of the purple mushroom-people.

Re: Is SSJ Grade III really as useless as some suggest?

I figure the "super bulked-up" form could be useful if there was some opponent who was absurdly strong (to the point where normal Super Saiyan could barely even scratch them) but also extremely slow for their power level, to the point where a drop in speed below Super Saiyan levels wouldn't be such ...

Re: What was up with Raditz's hand gestures during his fight

No idea about the hand gestures; I don't think I've ever even noticed that before. As for Raditz's power level and lack of knowledge about ki techniques, I don't see the problem. He's a lower-class Saiyan, so more than likely he never actually got any "real" training like the super-elites probably d...

Well, Cold in second/third form looked a lot like Freeza in second/third form... so I kind of expected him to look a lot like Freeza in his final form, too. Except with a King Cold-ish face, which is pretty much exactly how he ended up. Also, how can you tell he stayed the same height? King Cold in ...

Re: Dragonball Z: a show for heterosexual males only?

The first two DBZ fans I ever met (well, not exactly "met" since I only knew them online) were both girls, way back in the late-'90s or maybe around 2000, when I hadn't even gotten into DBZ yet. One of them was a rabid Piccolo fangirl, if I remember right; unsure about the other, I think she liked V...

Re: Would time traveling to the future create a new timeline

The whole split-timeline thing seems to be set up to make it impossible to actually change the past. So I'd say it might make a lot of sense if going back in time further than you've already been always splits off a new timeline (even if you're trying to go back after a trip into the future), while ...

Re: Oozaru Vegeta could not be 3rd strongest

Yes they are? Ginyu is over twice Burter's power. But Burter's in the same range as Jeice and Recoome, and neither of them is that fast. If power levels were everything, that wouldn't be possible. Power levels really aren't everything, especially when two characters are anywhere near close to each ...

Re: Nameks can eat food!?

Of course Nameks can eat food. Piccolo eats senzu beans, doesn't he? I'm guessing the way it works is, Nameks only need water but they can eat solid food/drink other things if they want to, or if they can't find plain water. Almost all food (especially things like fresh meat and veggies) contains wa...

Re: Super Gyarikku-Ho

I always figured Vegeta's blast in the Saiyan Saga wouldn't have literally blown up Earth, since the weakest "confirmed planet-blower-upper" we have is Freeza and Vegeta was nowhere near that level at this point in the series. I figure even first-form Freeza could've pulled it off, and if fourth-for...

Re: Are Darbula or Bojack and his hencmen Makaiohshins?

I would've said Dabura couldn't be a Makaioshin because he just doesn't look much like the other Kaioshins at all, but then I thought about it a little more... The Kaios and Kaioshins don't really look much alike, either... and they're apparently both part of the same species (all come from the same...

Overrated characters?

Not super uber overrated or anything, though. Freeza. He's not really relevant a...
