It's probably why Namekians have antanaes. Is that how you spell it? Anyway, it's kind of like he can feel stuff, like Ki, thoughts, emotions, and all that good stuff, like how Kaiou-sama was "watching" the fight on Namek. What Fuujin said was what I thought exactly when I read the manga. I remember...

On the theory that Movie 7 takes place in another timeline, the one where the Androids were beaten without the whole Cell thing... Maybe Androids 13-15 were the androids they fought. 17 and 18 could have been destroyed by 13-15. So instead of the Z Senshi defeating 17 and 18, and then 13-15, it coul...

Ugh...Bardock appears in the manga right before the fight between Son Goku and Freeza. Vegeta calls Goku "Kakarrot" and Freeza recognizes that as a Saiyan name. He then recalls killing a Saiyan that looks just like Goku, and the next panel has a picture of Bardock right before Freeza killed the Saiy...

Probably the whole character Piccolo was just one big filler!!

If "Hoi" is short for Hoi-Poi, notice how in the manga whenever someone throws a capsule, it makes a "hoi" sound effect. Whenever it pops, it goes "poi!" Viz explained somewhere (I think in a fan letter page) that capsules are named after the sound they make when thrown. Perhaps the "Hoi-Poi" sound ...

I think that turning into a Super Saiyan increases their overall energy and allows more energy to be used. Saiyans in their base form have a certain limit to how much power they can have; turning Super Saiyan allows them to use more power, thus "exceeding their limits." My idea is that there is a ki...

Mmmm...I always thought turning Super Saiyan increased one's energy. After Goku attacked Freeza with the Genki Dama, he was tired and had barely any energy left. He got his ass whooped by Freeza and used the remaining energy to form and throw the Genki Dama, so he was pretty weak. But when he turned...

Thanks a lot, I sorta understand now. But then, when they go Super Saiyan, does their overall energy supply increase as well, or do they just use more energy than normal?

I think of a lightbulb, say, powered by a 9-volt battery. Then all of a sudden, someone switched the battery to a 100,000-volt battery. Obviously it would shine a lot brighter, but be under a lottle of stress and pressure and just might blow up. That's the way a Saiyan works. It goes Super Saiyan, h...

Well, I actually saw part of the doujinshi that that image came from. It's one of those Head-Cha-La fan mangas, right? Anyway, from what I understand #18 kissed Kuririn so #17 and I think #16 did as well.

The way I view it is, transforming takes up energy, but increases your power. Staying in that state is also strenous on the body. Power, energy, and physical condition all seem to be apart of your ki. I'd like to give some supporting examples for these thoughts, but I seem to be getting sleepy. @_@...

Super Saiyan ki

In Dragon Ball, "ki" is the life force that people have. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the amount ki is the amount of power someone has. When a Saiyan goes Super Saiyan, his power is supposed to increase many fold. However, in Dragon Ball, Piccolo mentioned that the Super Saiyan state should take som...
