Re: Nappa & Vegeta final attacks power boost?

I think we shouldn't discount the notion of Goku simply conserving his energy. He was facing off against two opponents that were the strongest he had ever seen at that point so its not out of the question that Goku would hold back his power output to ensure he could keep fighting. Its only logical w...

Did Goku Unintentionally Sabotage The Strength Gains Of The Z Senshi Against Cell?

Even after another year in the ROSAT, Vegeta only managed to reach somewhere over half of FPSSJ Goku's strength despite knowing Goku's method of training and having several months to think & improve upon it. Why exactly is that? Did Goku unintentionally cut morale so much after his declaration that ...

Re: Old Broly's Madness

People can go insane for various reasons and since Saiyans have not demonstrated any significantly improved degree of physiological fortitude over humans, I'd say there's a good chance that any one of the reasons that can alter a human's mind could very well have done so for Broly.

Remember that he also had Freeza and Goku’s cells, so he doesn’t have that weakness.
If he has Freeza's cells then that means he can hold his full power for only 7-8 minutes. :D

Was Super Perfect Cell Actually At Full Power?

Cell demonstrates a few times that he is subject to Namekian regeneration's loss of Ki upon needing to re-acquire lost sections of his body so does that mean that SPC was not quite at full power when he engaged Gohan in the beam struggle? He did have to regenerate his entire body from his smallest p...

Re: Vegeta III Meets Trunks.

Maybe, maybe not. We don't know. Actually I don't think Vegeta has a specific reason for not seeking to revive any of them. I think its more something that he never considered. He abandoned the ideology of his youth because he came to care for others. He hasn't lost his Saiyan ideology, he is just ...

Re: Vegeta III Meets Trunks.

I think Vegeta III would be rather proud to have a grandson who is a Super Saiyan. Especially given how proud he was of Vegeta when Vegeta was young. Yeah, I mean...sure? King Vegeta had great pride in his lineage and would be content to see both his son & grandson as SSJs if he had lived. However,...

Is 'Ultimate' Still Representative Of Gohan's Final Form/State Or Can He Ascend Further?

Will he always just be "Ultimate Gohan + whatever extra degree of power he happens to obtain?" or will 'Ultimate' become a thing of the past and then we'll have God Gohan or something like that?

Re: Beerus's Attitude Towards Potential Destroyers.

Doesn't Zeno appoint Hakaishin? I imagine if Zeno was truly dissatisfied with Beerus, he'd retire him without a second thought. However, since that hasn't happened even after 70+ million years then Zeno must either approve of Beerus or simply doesn't feel Beerus needs replacement.

Emotion. Both anime/manga showed the power up came from feelings of rage and frustration.
So that means Vegeta's rage offers him roughly 20 times greater power than normal? Would that mean Vegeta was 20 times stronger after Bulma got slapped by Beerus?

Most likely, it's just Super Saiyan Blue Grade-2: instead of using a technique to increase his ki output, he "tweaked" the transformation Where exactly is Vegeta drawing out this additional power though?

What Is The Basis For SSJBE's Power?

We know that SSJBE is Vegeta improving in his own way instead of following Goku's path with UI but where does the power & reason for the form come from exactly? Is Vegeta drawing on the power of Oozaru to push SSJB to a greater level? Is he relying on more rage? Does he simply have further latent po...

Re: Could the Z fighters become as strong as they are now without meeting Beerus and Whis?

I'm going to say that Shadow Dragon saga power levels are the limit of mortal saiyan power. Ultra Full power Saiyan 4 is the max. Future Trunks got as strong as he did because of Beerus and the others and was leveled up to match this. Just because characters are mortal does not mean that they are f...

Re: How strong do you think South kaioshin was?

I think the “somehow” is more related to the absorption ability than to South Kaioshin’s strength, since that was the first time they realized Boo can absorb another beings. Kibitoshin was talking in hindsight, knowing full well in present tense that Boo could absorb opponents and that the exact ci...

Re: How strong do you think South kaioshin was?

IIRC, Kibitoshin said that "Majin Boo somehow managed to absorb the South Kaioshin" or something to that effect. The implication being that the South Kaioshin was powerful enough to keep Pure Boo at bay and that absorbing him would have taken some cunning on Boo's part and/or the South Kaioshin happ...

Re: Could the Z fighters become as strong as they are now without meeting Beerus and Whis?

If DBS's narrative on training applies, giving gigantic increases to just anyone who happens to train seriously, then sure. After training for several years, Future Trunks went from being weaker than a Cell Jr to being strong enough to challenge Post-U6 Tournament SSJ3 Goku. That's even greater than...

Re: Fusion multiplier's inconsistency

Fusion, like any other major power boost in DB, has no set multiplier. It all depends on how much Ki the user currently has, how much potential that can be drawn out from within, and how well it clicks together with another user's Ki. Note that Kibitoshin was relatively weak for a fusion because the...
