Re: What is the likelihood of them introducing a Super Saiyan version of Ultra Instinct in the future?

I dont see why they dont just go with fusion over new forms, so many possibilities and ways to make everyone else relevant, "oh noooo Goku needs telekinesis oh woops he danced in Chiaotzus direction oh look a new marketable character without having to paint Goku a new colour oh nooooo" or something...

If Goten & Trunks Decided To Seriously Train Again And Reappear As Gotenks...

What form are they more likely to show up as, SSJBE Gotenks or UI Gotenks?

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

While Toyotaro might be stretching this latest arc a little too long for my taste, his work so far has been decent for a doujin-artist-turned-Dragonball-author. He might need a character/story correction from Toriyama every now & then but even Toriyama says he's mostly happy with Toyotaro taking the...

Re: What is the likelihood of them introducing a Super Saiyan version of Ultra Instinct in the future?

SSJ is antithetical to UI's control over emotions but since transformations sell merchandise, anything is possible under that logic. However, I'm really not sure if stacking SSJ on top of UI would actually power it up as much as it might sound on paper. Goku has already attempted to forcefully power...

Re: Dragon Ball GT: Electric Slime Benchmark

Pan's best fighting "feat" up til that point was holding Dr. Gero/Android 20 in a headlock but there's just so much range in between Base Goku & Gero by that point. Goku continued to improve throughout GT so he could be anywhere from his SSJ3 self from Z to some percentage of Super Vegetto's power j...

Re: Is Dabra (Buu Saga) SSj2-level?

I reread the fight this morning, and I'm pretty sure the panting was coming from Gohan. Here's how it goes: Dabra blocks three punches from SSj2 Gohan. Gohan connects with a spinning back kick. Dabra counters with a stream of fire, which Gohan evades. He charges Dabra, who tricks him into attacking...

Re: Should DBS Revisit The Concept Of Vengeance Against The Saiyans?

I got another idea. What if the undead spirits of races killed by Saiyans rose up to form a new threat that will only find rest again by Goku & Vegeta having to fight it off in a different way than usual?

Re: Is Dabra (Buu Saga) SSj2-level?

The fact that Dabura was panting while fighting a non-angry SSJ2 Gohan that had some degree of power still drained from him says it all. When a villain with clear SSJ2-tier strength attacked Dabura, he got beat down pretty bad. There isn't really much to Dabura other than his magic. He might have Pe...

Re: Should DBS Revisit The Concept Of Vengeance Against The Saiyans?

I think two times is enough. If we go by DBS's timeline, the previous instances of Raichi & Baby never actually happened. Therefore, the concept would still be fresh-enough for DBS. The Saiyans no doubt earned an infamous reputation as being Freeza's killer lapdogs so revenge against them could ext...

Would A Jiren/Toppo Fusion Be Stronger Than Vegetto Or Gogeta?

Especially if the hypothetical fusion could whip out Jiren's LB power up and/or Toppo's Hakaishin form? Might we see a fusion that finally overwhelms Goku & Vegeta's?

Re: Angels, or completely new enemy after Moro?

With how powerful the Z Senshi is now, U7 doesn't have a lot of candidates left to even qualify as legitimate villains anymore. Freeza is kind of wild card but he seems to be playing it safe for now. All of Moro's minions are defeated and back in prison. Any deceased villains of the past that someho...

Re: What Inconsistencies &/or Retcons You Wished Were Never Made In Dragon Ball Super?

Which was BS writing. From my understanding Fused Zamasu appears in Heroes because he managed to survive Zeno's erasure technique. So it makes no sense that Hearts is able to erase Fused Zamasu when Zeno failed (in Heroes timeline). That was a bad move by Heroes writers, such a cheap and lazy way t...

Re: What Inconsistencies &/or Retcons You Wished Were Never Made In Dragon Ball Super?

In his defense, Hearts did eradicate a powerful, immortal being like Zamasu with a gesture. It previously took Future Zeno to wipe Zamasu out so I can kind of get why Hearts would be high on his own power.

Should DBS Revisit The Concept Of Vengeance Against The Saiyans?

The concept of the Tsufruians seeking revenge on the Saiyans from Plan To Eradicate The Saiyans & GT is an idea that I have always enjoyed. However, I have been wondering lately about if there might be any other potential races that the Saiyans had destroyed/subjugated while under Freeza's rule, one...

Re: How cool would it be if a HALO appeared around Moro 73’s neck in the upcoming chapter?

It would be hilarious for this to happen, only for him to erase himself now that he's using angel abilities. :lol: That would actually be fitting. A villain that indulges in his abilities (stolen or otherwise) to erase himself by using a power that has that kind of consequence. And anticlimactic. M...

Why? Don’t you like Power Progression? If that is the case, then you should probably leave Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball is not for you. Dragon Ball is a story ALL ABOUT the growth of Goku in terms of strength, speed, agility, power, and overall techniques, skills and abilities. It’s all about EVOLUTION...

If a future chapter even has a hint of Moro suddenly developing an Angel-esque appearance or gaining a single one of Merus' Angel abilities at this stage of the arc...then in all honesty, fuck DBS.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

I'm in the camp of EoZ getting retconned, at least to some extent anyways. Toriyama seemingly had a clear vision on how to conclude the series back in 1995 and that it would stand the test of time. However, given that he has since tweaked a few details in the 10 year gap as well as having an imagina...

Re: How Would Moro Arc Piccolo Fare In DBZ?

Seems like he's weaker than Cell, but smart enough to outsmart and hurt opponents at Cell's level (judging by how he beat SSJ2 Gohan in their sparring). Basically, somewhat weaker than Cell, but smarter and more durable. That was Piccolo just before the ToP. By the time Moro arrives on Earth, Picco...
