Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

That's similar to what happens with some franchises like Pacific Rim, where they give weights for the kaijus that make no sense for their size, like saying a certain monster is 6000 to 7000 tons, when if you do the math, it's so big that it would have to be less dense than the air around it to weig...

Re: On the subject of Yamoshi the creator of the SSG

So I'm guessing that Yamoshi is responsible for there being the 6 pure-hearted Saiyans that we are know & love? Maybe that's why Bardock seemed more like a 'good guy' in DB Minus & DBS: Broly as opposed to the first Bardock special? To fit with the new lore of the SSJG & righteous Saiyans, Bardock w...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

I'm just going to go ahead and chalk it up to Beerus' ignorance on how much Magetta must truly weigh. He says "over 1,000 tons" but that clearly is just a guess by Beerus, the same way you might ask the average person how much a Blue Whale weighs and their answer being along the lines of "heavier th...

Re: How do you think Bulma would feel about Yamcha dating her sister?

I honestly don't know how she'd feel. Bulma went several years without even mentioning that she had an older sister to Goku or Vegeta(her husband of all people!). Evidently, Bulma & Tights aren't close enough to be up in each other's personal lives, at least not enough to have any opinion in what pe...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

Didn't Beerus say that Magetta weighed "over" 1,000 tons? So if you want to be absolutely literal, then Magetta could have weighed a million tons, and Beerus' comment wouldn't technically be wrong. Its an arbitrary figure to start from though. If Magetta actually weighs one million tons then why st...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

Wasn't it stated in the Super Exciting Guide that the reason Goku had so much trouble with the 40 ton weights was because it's much much harder to lift weights while flying? Here's what Herms said on the SEG and Goku struggling with it. Herms wrote: It’s worth pointing out that it basically says th...

Has Whis Been Mostly Suppressed Throughout The Story?

As far as I can tell, Whis has yet to make a kiai or flare up an aura that signifies that he is fully powered up and/or seriously going to fight; not unlike how Jiren remained without an aura or even a change in expression until he fought UI Goku. Do you suppose that its because Whis has simply been...

Re: Piccolo destroying the cameras

Probably stems from Kami's ability to see & know things from afar. Either that or some odd Namekian magic.

Re: Old Broly VS New Broly

New Broly. He has more of a personality as well as sympathizing traits that make him further relatable; as opposed to simply being a deranged & sadistic baddie kept in check by Xanax-brand jewelry. New Broly is not a savage beast by choice but by unique Saiyan biology forcing him to lose control, no...

Re: Potential Multipliers - "Super" Daizenshuu?

If nothing else, Vegeta's performance against Beerus and Trunks's demonstration against Goku would likely amend the SSj2 multiplier to something more like 100-400x Base (or, as phrased in Super Exciting Guide terms, 2-8x SSj). Might even allow a little more interpretive leeway in doing Buu arc powe...

Re: Potential Multipliers - "Super" Daizenshuu?

I would really rather that there would not be anymore "official" multipliers & PLs, etc. The Super Exciting Guide really opened up a can of worms by jotting down unimaginative, concrete numbers for the SSJ forms that has caused more debate towards their in-story authenticity & logic than clarificati...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

My understanding is that Vegeta was just dicking around. He wasn't being serious. He was trying to show as little of his strength and power as possible so he could surprise the top dog of U6, Hit. His plan didn't work because Hit was far stronger than Vegeta could detect. Magetta's mass was also ne...

Ah, but nobody actually uses cancelling itself as a fighting skill. Maybe someone might someday. They might not use it regularly...but they can use it, which I do believe was your question.

Re: Is Moro Less Of A Character And More Of A Response By The Author?

Well, we don't know what Moro really needs to stay alive at all , so it's hard to draw conclusions from that - for example, his massive longevity without eating could conceivably have come from all the energy of the 320 planets he'd consumed prior to his imprisonment. What we can say is that curren...

Re: Does anyone use energy nullification/cancellation?

Of course. Beerus cancelled out the combined Ki blast that he & SSJG Goku made at the beginning of DBS. There's also Hakaishin Toppo eliminating Freeza's planet-busting blast with a small piece of destructive energy. Even back in DBZ, Goku demonstrated the ability to cancel out a Ki blast with his b...

Re: Is Baba the DB equivalent of DEATH?

Doubt it. Baba's just a magic crone who has obtained some privileges from the afterlife. She has only ever had "domain" over souls from Earth and as far as we've seen, it has been a rather select few. Enma fits the bill of being Death more since all souls inevitably stand before him to be judged and...

Re: Is Moro Less Of A Character And More Of A Response By The Author?

He might enjoy doing it, but when Vegeta separated those souls from Moro he reverted back to his frail, deathly looking self, so it seems he does need them to maintain his powerful, youthful self. That just ties into the fact that Moro wants to remain young & alive so that he can continue to terror...

I'm afraid I can't find anything to back that up - in fact, he says in Chapter 59 that he only absorbs energy to fill his stomach, and adding to his power and weakening his foes are the fringe benefits. Gohan notes in Chapter 57 that Moro's ki feels pure evil because it's like the screaming of dyin...

His motivation is hunger, he's like Galactus I used to think that back when the arc had just begun. However, Moro revealed a couple chapters ago that he doesn't feed for survival reasons but for the pleasure of it. The fact that the action satiates his bodily needs and adds to his power is just a f...
