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

I mean if it did fall in the lava the story would be over and we wouldn't be having this convo. If it's on a tiny island surrounded by a literal moat of lava that'd be silly but more of the earth is still not lava then is so it's no implausible to me. It's not right by his feet conveniently, he had...

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

Does anyone else find it just stupid that Moro's former hand was conveniently sitting on a tiny piece of land surrounded by lava??? As though the universe knew that it was a crucial plot device in allowing Moro to have his umpteenth comeback & power up? Boo's sliced-off tentacle at least was set up ...

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

The power of an Angel ought to be able to do more than just threaten a galaxy. Merus may be young in comparison to Whis and the other Angels but reality-altering powers aren't really "safer" or less volatile just because the particular user was a boy. Angels can reverse time and even transport multi...

Beerus should be doing his job here. We got a dude right now who is tapping into powers far beyond his station and threatening a whole section of the universe. What's the Hakaishin doing about it???

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

I'm still of the opinion that Merus wasn't actually erased, merely recalled back to Daishinkan as a surprise lesson by his father.
It would be a lot better than Merus simply fading from existence forever because everyone refused to take out Moro when there were opportunities to do so.

Re: Since Goku and Bardock both fought in space, can Saiyans survive upper atmosphere?

Apparently so. It reminds me of when 90's Superman(not long after his revival) discovered that he only needed to take a single breath to keep his blood oxygenated for a set period of time. I guess Saiyans can survive even hundreds of miles up from the surface of a planet, just so as long as some oxy...

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...

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...

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...
