Re: Kid Goku didn't have a power-level of ten at the beginning of DB.

Being twice as strong as the average guy doesn't allow you to shrug off bullets. Ask any weightlifter. Saiyan physiology: Kid Goku might have a power level of 10 but he still tough anyways due to his species' durability. Just look at Nappa, he had a power level of 4000 yet held out against Goku's b...

What if Kuririn train for Crane Master instead of training for Roshi?
He would have learned to fly much sooner.

What if Frieza's scouter picked up Goku's power up against Captain Ginyu?

Doesn't mean much if Buu turns him into a harmless candy bar.

Re: Vegeta wasn’t warned in the future timeline

I always just assumed the tower was destroyed by the androids so the ROSAT was no longer an option. As to New Namek, they probably couldn't get there fast enough to revive anybody. By the way, wouldn't Vegeta have ended up in Hell in this timeline?

Re: What Would It Take For Krillin, Tien, Piccolo, and Yamcha to Catch up to Goku and Vegeta in a Satisfying Way?

Magic basically. Magic allowed Bibidi to seal up Buu who was whole leagues ahead of him. It allowed Puar to stop a raging Oozaru Goku. That's the only way to even the odds I can think of.

Re: Is Supreme Kai Shin the worst character in the franchise?

Well he's basically just a setup character. My only problem with him is that he's so inconsistent. He saw Gohan's SSJ2 power and is able to restrain him, but he's afraid when Pui Pui and Yakon pop up.

Re: How would you felt if all people on Earth found out about everything that was happening regarding Z fighters?

I think they would be happier knowing death isn't such a big deal so long as you're good. I don't think learning about aliens and other universes would matter as much since they already live on a planet with dinosaurs and anthropomorphic animals. Heck, Tien and Piccolo can walk around in public with...

Re: Was Goku presented as a prodigy prior to Z?

I think Goku was always meant to be a prodigy. The low class thing was just to make Vegeta, Nappa, and Raditz more of a threat. I disagree actually. For me this recontextualized Goku's incredible abilities (which were called into question at the start of the arc with the Saiyan heritage thing) and ...

Re: Was Goku presented as a prodigy prior to Z?

I think Goku was always meant to be a prodigy. The low class thing was just to make Vegeta, Nappa, and Raditz more of a threat. But Goku is still understood by everybody to be the better fighter than everyone else for the bulk of the series. So much so that the first few sagas of Z are pretty much e...

Re: Orange Bricks vs Blu-rays (2014) - Definitive Discussion

Don't see it mentioned here so I'm wondering if I'm the only one that had this happen. I got the season 1 Blu-ray and at the part where King Kai is talking about planet Namek after the saiyan battle, it suddenly starts using dialogue from the filler episode about planet Vegeta. This is the english d...

Re: Can't get into Kai

Still a funi-dub fan. "Cat loves food yeah yeah yeah yeah." DBZKai kind of put me off when I tried it. Redoing the series with mostly the same voices but less hammy dialogue makes it seem like they want me to take this fantasy show more seriously and I resent that for some reason.

Nappa and Raditz could be with the whole planet trade deal being defunct and enough heroes being stronger than them.

Re: How would Buu have performed in Champa's tournament?

I thought Magetta was only dangerous because he raised the temperature and made it hard to breathe. I don't see this as an issue for Buu.

Re: What Would A Hypothetical SSJ5 & Beyond Be Like?

SSJ4 made Goku act more aggressive it seemed so I'd want SSJ5 to turn him merciless and/or evil to some degree. So in effect, the form itself would be dangerous to use for too long in regards to the user's friends rather than the user himself.

Raditz said he should have been able to easily and Roshi was right there, so I'm going to say yes.

Blu-ray releases. Wish DB and DBGT would get them already.
