Re: A few power-related musings

Whether Trunks or Vegeta is stronger really depends on what point of the story you're talking about. In the first few fights with the Androids, it was pretty clear that Trunks was significantly weaker than Vegeta. While they were both too weak to do much against #18, Trunks was pretty much completel...

Re: Fat Buu & Evil Buu question

I figure he'd end up as a different kind of "Super Buu" than the one we saw, with more of the good Fat Buu's appearance and personality traits overriding the evil Buu's rather than the other way around. Probably similar in power to the canon Super Buu, but with a personality closer to the original F...

Re: Did Kami's power grow with Piccolo's?

I don't know if there's a direct relation between how much stronger Piccolo got and Kami's strength, but I always had the impression that Kami did indeed get stronger over time (possibly by training for himself when he's not busy with anything else, or possibly by just getting stronger in the proces...

Re: 2 Cell absorbtion questions

I figure Cell probably *could* absorb other fully-organic beings (like Goku), though he'd have to do it the same way he did with Piccolo's arm or all the random humans: by draining all their stuff out with his tail. I figure he'd still be able to use the tail to absorb things if he wanted to even af...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I guess whoever drew this special is a big fan of King Enma. He's the only character I've seen so far that hasn't been afflicted with the horrible-ugly-distorted-faces plague. After all those pages of nothing but awful faces, it's kind of a relief to see somebody actually looking semi-normal for a c...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

The worst thing is that I think this artist can do much better than this, they're just not bothering. Maybe it's supposed to be funny? Possibility #1: They're trying to make a decent alternate-universe backstory... and failing miserably. (I think this one's probably the most likely, considering how...

Re: If Trunks showed up on Namek?

He was in otherworld, not space.. Huh, I completely forgot about how the North Kai's planet doesn't actually look like it's floating in space somewhere (it's just kind of... randomly "there" hovering over the end of Snake Way.) Without that being a factor, though... maybe his regeneration wouldn't ...

Re: If Trunks showed up on Namek?

Well, Cell wouldn't be able to survive in space (he got that from Freeza/King Cold), so he would've died after blowing himself up. Also, he probably wouldn't have those shiny black things (the ones look kinda like Freeza's shiny purple crystalline things) on various parts of his body. Maybe he'd hav...

Re: Hundreds, maybe even thousands of low-class Saiyans aliv

I think it's possible that a small handful of Saiyans might still be out there somewhere, but probably not many, and I really doubt there'd be any really super-strong ones around. Not every planet has the Senzu beans and healing tanks and such that you'd need to take advantage of the ridiculous near...

Re: Does Freeza have to go through each of his transformatio

Since the 1st-3rd forms were transformations made to lower his power, I guess the old Kaioshin would probably want him to be in his fourth (original) form before doing his silly little make-you-absurdly-strong dance. I guess if he did the silly dance when Freeza was in his first form, Freeza would e...

I'm pretty sure all Mewtwo has to do there is get inside Raditz's head and its all over. But when it comes to actual physical prowess Raditz would stomp him. This is a very common misconception about Mewtwo (and Psychic Pokémon in general.) Time to clear it up! Mewtwo's psychic powers (like most Ps...

The art isn't too bad overall, but the faces are so awful they just kind of ruin it ("stylized" is no excuse... those are some damn ugly faces, no matter how you look at it. The fact that they resemble the faces in various horrible-looking Internet meme pictures just makes it even worse.) Nice to se...

Re: Why did Vegeta turn to stone?

If Goku can get ki for the Genki Dama from stars/planets, inanimate objects, and plants, then why couldn't Vegeta's clothes have been pushed to release whatever ki was in them when he used that attack? I mean, clothes are generally made of either inanimate objects, plants, or parts of dead animals. ...

Re: Spin-Offs? Continuations? If Manga were more like Comics

Spinoffs and such I wouldn't mind too much. There's plenty of room for them, since DBZ leaves all these 1, 3, 7, and 10-year timeline gaps all over the place where almost anything could fit. Continuations... eh, depends on how it's done. I wouldn't want something that would just end up like another ...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Not really. "Able to beat a SSj2" and "actually stronger than a SSj2" are two very different things when these guys are involved, since they rely so heavily on their technology and aren't nearly as powerful without it. As far as speed/strength goes I can't see these guys being any stronger than Impe...

Re: Could Buu/Cell live forever?

Personally I can see Buu living pretty much forever, or at least a very very long time, considering that he's already been around for at least 5,000,000 years before his first appearance. Cell on the other hand... I don't think he'd be immortal, since (artificially-created or not) he's only made of ...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Well, I think he is always "mystic", as in he has his power unlocked and he doesn't need to turn SSJ nor can he turn SSJ. All he does is increase and decrease his power level normally to his maximum and minimum (and all in between). Since there would be no reason for him to hold back fighting Buu i...

Re: Dragon Ball Manga Sprocle Quiz

You may want to change it so that entering "Kai" or "Buu" doesn't automatically fill in all of the Kais/Buu forms for you. I ended up missing Kibito-Kai because of that, since I figured the fused version would either just be counted under "Kaioshin" or not on there at all after typing "Kai" filled o...

I never really saw Fat Buu (after expelling Evil Buu) as being any weaker than the original Fat Buu. They might have lengthened the fight in the anime, but from what I remember of the manga (and it has been a while since I read through, so I might be a little off) there really wasn't anything in the...
