Re: Alternate timeline question

I also prefer timelines to be created only when they change the future, because it yields a more elegant picture of just four timelines. I will say however, that it takes a lot more convoluted rules and assumptions about time travel to make it all fit, than desirecampbell's school of thought. So the...

Re: Ubb + Buu

The Buu that became Uub was the original and pure Buu. The good Buu never belonged to him and never should have. In my opinion, the Kid Buu we see at the end of the series is not the same as the original one that was created by Bibidi. The former is the evil half of the latter, but since the origin...

Re: What if Goku never bumped his head...

I actually think he would have let Vegeta go, just so he could fight him again, not for some kind of mercy. Didn't exactly this happen in the original story? Goku went on about Vegeta dying being a waste, wishing only to fight him once more as the one thing he wanted purely for himself. He told Kri...

Re: King Cold

He's in his final form and has no need to show up in a suppressed form(if he even has one), when he's going up against a guy more powerful than Freeza. Perhaps he just had that much confidence in Freeza's ability to take down SSj Goku. It does suit both their arrogance... even after Trunks sliced u...

Re: Cheesy voice acting: Japanese vs English dubs

The unfamiliairty of another language has something cool about it. It's the reason that Dragonball has all sorts of terms/names based on the English language - it sounds cool to Japanese people, just as Japanese words sound cool to most of us. To us, Genki Dama sounds cool, but I imagine that Fainar...

Re: The Earthlings/Kaio-Ken Deal

When fighting No.20, Piccolo does talk about how he can make his energy explode when he fights, so that the energy 20 stole from Piccolo when he was just standing around is insignificant. I wonder if maybe that was an ability he gained from training with Kaio. Like it was either some proto-Kaio-ken...

Re: How can Broly remember since he was a baby?

I'd go with the idea that Broly instinctively/subconsciously hates Goku. He learns Goku's name when Vegeta addresses him as Kakarot... by the time Goku explains to him that "Goku" is his real name, he wasn't listening anymore :P

Re: Was Thin Buu supposed to be dark-skinned?

Interesting, I had a hunch that Thin Buu should be pink. That makes him more easily recognizable as basically the same person(ality) as Super Buu. Thanks for the quick response :)

[I guess Goku might have simply escaped his notice, but he actually knew Raditz by name, so why did he never have him killed? Maybe he figured he'd never amount to anything, or maybe he really did purposefully spare him too for whatever reason, but it just never gets brought up since Raditz is long...

Was Thin Buu supposed to be dark-skinned?

Since the anime has taken a few liberties with coloring, I was wondering if it was Toriyama's idea to make Thin Buu dark-skinned or TOEI's. Is there any indication to this? Thin Buu only lasted two chapters at best, so I'm not sure if there's any colored original work from Toriyama himself that woul...

Re: Fat Buu Power Ups

I view Fat Buu as more of a fusion between Grand Kaioshin and Kid Buu. In any other absorption, Buu retains control and remains "himself", but Grand Kaioshin apparently has such an amazing influence that he completely changes Buu into a whole new person. Maybe Grand Kaioshin put one of his earrings ...

Re: Mr. Buu - Plothole?

It helps if you realize that second appearance of Kid Buu was actually the evil half of the original Kid Buu. However, Kid Buu was already pure evil himself, so you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Same being, same personality... only half a spirit.

That's why he's such an interesting character. I wonder what motives he had to let Freeza be the face of the organization and to withdraw into the shadows himself. Most villains would rather stand in the spotlights themselves...

Re: Why Buff Boo instead of Skinny?

I like this theory! However, what broke the spiritual link, then? If it was present when evil Boo was expelled, why isn't it there when Mr Boo got removed? Perhaps the violent removal of Mr. Buu's pod can break a spiritual link between two beings... also, the "bad air" inside Buu seems to have an a...
