Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

Also don't think Piccolo or Future Trunks are as strong as some people thing. If Piccolo got such a massive power jump, it would have been mention in some way. I mean, Goku mentioned Piccolo getting strong after training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber despite it amounted to crap. Him being Majin Bu...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

Why wouldn't Piccolo have trained during those 7 years? He enjoys fighting, doesn't he? Regarding training with a partner, if we want to follow the idea that having a sparring partner can make that much of a difference in someone's power, why wasn't Piccolo already stronger than a Super Saiyan befor...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

The problem is that even by Dragon Ball standards, the idea of Piccolo making such a massive leap in power in the span of a few weeks or months or whatever, is just ridiculous. Exactly kind of training did Piccolo go become that much more powerful in a short amount of time? Furthermore, shouldn't Pi...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

If he was holding back enough to not kill Trunks, that would mean that he was actually using less power than what his base form is capable of, wouldn't it?

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

That really doesn't make any sense. How would transforming give him any better of an idea of how strong Black is? If Trunks supposedly wouldn't have stood a chance against Goku in his base form, what difference would it make for him to show off an obsolete transformation? Trunks fought Black for ov...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

Again, why did Goku even transform at all if he's already more powerful than pretty much anyone from the Buu saga in his base form? That seems like overkill to me.

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

So after being on the air for a year now, it seems that Super's greatest contribution to the franchise was causing the power level debates to be more heated than ever. Frankly, I would think that the theory about Goku and Vegeta being able to switch between their God ki and their regular ki at will ...

Re: The humble beginnings of the Original Funimation Cast.

I'm not really sure if Kai really left that much of a long lasting impact on Dragon Ball in the U.S. I know that it had some pretty strong ratings for Nicktoons, but it's run was ultimately pretty short lived. Sure, it was nice to get a dub that was more accurate to the original version with more e...

Re: The humble beginnings of the Original Funimation Cast.

If the chatroom thing is true, I'm at least glad most parties involved are capable of enough shame to want to separate themselves from such garbage. And Dragon Ball Kai , ironically enough, served the purpose of introducing new kids to the franchise, something it seemingly failed to do in Japan. So...

Re: Thoughts on Monaka now?

Thing is though, they're both Gods (like actual gods, not just guys with God forms), and are both overwhelmingly stronger than Goku and Vegeta. My best guess is that Beerus thought they might need another mortal being, who's stronger than them but seemingly closer to them in strength than to Beerus...

I have to admit, I didn't expect this thread to get as heated as it seems to have become. I kind of just assumed that this thread would maybe get a few replies before quickly being forgotten.

Re: Why do they seem to be pushing Mai x Trunks?

Is it that much of an issue? Regardless of whether or not it happens, like Lord Beerus said, it's not like it would majorly effect the plot in any way. It's not a huge deal, but I'm just confused as to why it's even a thing. Even Bulma x Vegeta at least had the excuse of providing a justification f...

Re: DBZ Kai Dub and Goku's character

It always strikes me as odd how people seem to act like because the old Funimation dub often times made gave Goku some over the top "superhero" speeches, that they like to make him out to be some morally bankrupt sociopath who only fights bad guys for his own amusement. Goku may not be the ideal Sup...

Why do they seem to be pushing Mai x Trunks?

It started off as a gag in BOG, but with the recent arc with Future Trunks, it seems like it's something that either Toriyama or Toei are trying to push. It just makes me wonder, why? Is this all just based on that one gag from Battle of Gods? If so, that's actually kind of creepy when you take into...

Re: EOB or DB MINUS? Which hurt Gokuu's character more?

I'd go with Minus solely due to the fact that it's actually regarded as canon. Changing Goku's backstory from being sent to Earth to destroy it, to being sent to Earth because his parents care about him was a terrible idea that only served to emphasize the parallels to Superman (if Superman's parent...
