Question Regarding "Necroposting"

Namely, what qualifies as necro-posting? Most of the boards I've been to don't have that rule, and the few that have all disagree as to where the necro-posting line is. So where is it on this board? I don't want to post in something that's "safe" elsewhere but "necrotic" here and get in trouble. Tha...

There may be a dozen or so BGMs, but if memory serves me correctly, there's basically two that dominate: fighting on Earth and fighting on Namek. You never do anything else long enough for their themes to take root in your brain. When I said three enemies I meant three enemies at a time. When you're...

Pull out those little known but useful techniques. For example: Don't give Kamesen'nin multiple Kamehamehas. Make one of them his "Bangkok Surprise Prize" that he zapped Goku with at the 21st Budokai. Give Videl some kind of ki attack. Even if it's a Kamehameha, you can say Gohan taught her, and mak...

Legend of the Super Saiyan

Talk about a manic-depressive game; everything seems to be either wonderfully brilliant or maddeningly horrible. The RPG card system is pretty neat, the fights are good, the Mode 7 whenever there's a ram attack is sweet, the ki attacks are wonderful (especially when Vegeta does his Final Flash), and...

Well, the Announcer didn't rule against it, nor did any of the monks at the temple...a bit odd, but...

Goku: luckier than he deserved at the 21st Budokai?

In all three of his fights, it seems like the rules bend a bit. Against Giran, he's allowed the onetime use of Kin'toun when he uses it to stop himself from landing out of bounds. Against Namu, after he gets hit by the Diving X/Holy Cross, Namu has to remind the Budokai Announcer (who I'm assuming i...

Suupaman doesn't have the same powers as Superman. No heat vision, no superstrength, transforms instead of doing it all the time, and "flies" by laying down on a skateboard and rolling down the street. Parody yes, but not a "rip." A rip of Superman would be Hyperion from Marvel Comics. Dictator, mea...

Heh, sorry. I just love those two together. Cyberman: What I'd like to see is a movie about the Sons and the Briefs go on a vacation together a few years after the Buu saga. Of course, some big baddie would ruin it. Seeing Goku and Vegeta go on a trip and argue would be hilarious! I actually did a v...

1) Backstory of Yamcha and Pu'ar. 2) Backstory of Pilaf, Mai, and Shu/Soba. 3) The very 1st Budokai. 4) Backstory of the Budokai Announcer. :D (talk about getting fanboyish...) 5) Some dimension-travelling villain that goes to Mirai Trunks's universe, kills everyone left but him, and then follows hi...

When I spent about $200 or so on ebay to get the 8 essential Daizenshuu (the first seven, plus TV Animation 3).

Funnily enough, I never bought too much of the series...mainly just bought the manga and wrote fanfics. Still write some now and then.

How does Emperor Pilaf do it?

When you actually think about it, he has more resources and tech than just about any other villain in Dragon Ball, and that includes Freeza to an extent. He has his own castle. He has his own Dragon Radar. He has his own mecha suits. He has his own satellite surveillance system. He has his own Drago...

I'm also going to have to say Goten and Trunks. *points to avatar* They just have that sense of an adamantium strength friendship that no force in the multiverse could destroy, and it sort of makes you sad that Mirai Trunks never got to have that...
