Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Quick question: how strong is Jaco? could he been a good addition to the U-7's team? is he stronger than Mutenroshi, Tien or Krillin? Jaco back before beginning-of-Dragonball era was unable to handle any adult Saiyan, but strong enough to take on Saiyan children. So he was significantly weaker than...

Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

I haven't seen Infinity War yet, but isn't the Time Gem = the Eye of Agamotto from Doctor Strange? If so... well hey, looks like Hit just gained Whis's time-rewind power! Probably with no recharge period, too. Useful for sure, but I don't know if it'd be enough to make a difference against somebody ...

Re: Lazy nerfing of Dragonball in Fanfiction crossovers

I really wouldn't mind seeing "so-and-so high level magic user puts a seal on the characters' ki so they're only as strong as their pure physical strength rather than being able to amplify it far beyond that" as a balancing factor. It's not like this would drop DBZ characters down to normal human le...

Re: I've been toying around with a story concept that takes up a lot from Dragon Ball

Also, yabans are basically suspicious similar substitutes/expies of Saiyans. So similar that one of my biggest worries is that it could incur a lawsuit should I ever write it. As far as copyright lawsuit issues go... The only difference between yabans and Saiyans is that yabans have no transformati...

Re: Piccolo needs a new power-up

I honestly wouldn't mind seeing something along the lines of the "Red-Eyed Namekian" power-up from Heroes show up. The eyes being the only thing to change (along with a different aura, purple with lightning in this case) seems more fitting for a Namekian power-up and would be a good contrast to the ...

Re: Question unanswered that you want answer ?

When are Trunks and Goten gonna stop being little kids? Assuming they have a growth pattern like Goku did when he was a kid, they'll still look like runts at least up through age 15-16 but will look like teenagers/young adults at age 18-19. So they'll finally grow up by the end-of-Z time period, wh...

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

With equal power and unlimited stamina, I'd think Cell would win thanks to his regeneration. Especially since unlimited stamina would mean he can keep regenerating without losing any power (since his regeneration is basically still Piccolo-style, just with the benefits of Freeza's "survive almost an...

Re: Question unanswered that you want answer ?

How can Saiyans interbreed with earthlings, are they not a different race/species? Different species can sometimes interbreed. Usually the hybrid offspring are infertile (like mules), but there are exceptions -- cow/bison hybrids, most hybrids of different species of bear, killer bees, etc. And sin...

Re: In defense of Goku in Smash bros

Michele Knotz has never voiced Ash. Huh! I never looked up who did the voice used for him in Brawl, but I could've sworn it was one of the Ash voices (he's had at least two different voice actors over the years, right?) just by the sound of it. Still, even if it's not the same person that voiced As...

Re: Why did the animal characters just disappear?

It is really odd that there's no furry guys running around like back in original Dragonball anymore. The king's still a dog and there's still a few stragglers from the original cast like you mentioned, but I can't remember any others showing up in post-Z Dragonball. Until Dragonball Online, anyway -...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's just a case of "Goku is only smart when it comes to fighting." Superhuman Bulma would've dodged, somebody like Trunks carrying the remote probably would've dodged, but Goku had a duh moment and didn't think about keeping the remote away from the water. So when he saw a wav...

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

This might be a silly question, but I was wondering if there was any character in the entire DB franchise that would be capable of defeating Yugi Moto in a game of Duel Monsters? If they were allowed to build their own deck and such. Zuno I think might have the best chance... Huh... there's an odd ...

Re: Question unanswered that you want answer ?

Yeah, the name of Freeza's species is such an odd thing to not mention at this point. I guess they're pulling a Yoda with them, showing us a rare few members of the species but giving us next-to-no information on it (not even a name.) Even now it seems like all we know for sure is that most of them ...

Re: Could Goku and Gohan even fuse?

I'd heard people mention that Gohan's eyes were drawn differently when he's "Ultimate/Mystic" than usual... but I figure something as small as a difference in the way eyes/eyebrows are drawn just indicates that a level of concentration is required to draw out the "Ultimate" power, not an actual chan...

The fact that Base Cabba was even with Vegeta, and SSJ Cabba was even with Vegeta I just rewatched the Vegeta vs. Cabba fight and I don't see how anyone thinks they're actually equal.

Re: Could Goku and Gohan even fuse?

Whether or not you personally count it as a "real" transformation, Gohan's "Ultimate/Mystic" state seems to work like a transformation... just without any of the side-effects (physical change, strain, less stamina, altered mindset, etc.) that actual transformations can cause. Gohan has to power up a...

I've never been a fan of the idea of anime characters (not just Goku, but also others like Naruto or even somebody from an anime that was loosely based on a game -- like some of the characters from the Kirby anime who weren't ever in the games, or Ash from Pokémon) showing up in Super Smash Bros.

Re: Mahakaishin (Demonic Gods of Destruction). Do they exist?

An evil-counterpart God of Destruction doesn't really make sense to exist, no. Gods of Destruction are chosen from the mortal population, they aren't their own species the way the Kaio/Kaioshin are. So it's a completely different situation from the Shinjin, where the obviously evil ones get sent to ...

another Super Saiyan other than Yamoshi would have had to exist and then the fact of 1000 years wouldn't apply anymore. Yamoshi was described as the first Super Saiyan, wasn't he? Do we know that Yamoshi was the Super Saiyan from 1000 years ago, or is that just the common assumption? From what I re...

Re: Piccolo (post three years training, pre Kami fusion)

Definitely stronger than Freeza, no question about that. How much stronger than Freeza is hard to pin down since we don't know exactly how strong #19 and #20 were relative to Freeza and the initial Super Saiyans. If #19 and #20 were as strong as Freeza or even stronger, then beginning-of-Android-Sag...
