Re: Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan Full Power Any difference?

The primary difference is that mental energy is a form of ki. By being stressed all the time, that ki is being wasted instead of used. Once mastered, all that ki can be used, while using it in harmony with the SSJ body means tapping into existing SSJ energy reserves that simply weren't being used be...

One_Instance wrote:Well, there's obviously a ranking system that the Kaio use. So, maybe he's like a grade 1 Kaioshin that Kibito is on, while Kaioshin himself is on a completely different level.
So like East Kaioshin = completed his B.A. in Kaioshin studies, while Kibito is in his first semester?

Re: Complete list of plotholes/continuity issues in the mang

Yeah, its strange that the form is called Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan isn't needed...I assumed that was the case all this time :lol: Yeah, that's why SSJG should have been called Saiyan God or something similar and SSJGSSJG should have been SSJG. I think it's more the fact that the legend of ...

Re: The "peak" of your Dragon Ball fandom

1998-2000 for me. I started collecting the French manga because the anime wasn't progressing due to licensing issues in Canada, while the English manga was waaaay behind. During that time, I was going as far as to order fansub tapes from total strangers online. I was constantly searching for toys as...

Re: If Imperfect Cell absorbed x# people, could he turn Perf

I say he could, but then if he used too much power, he'd drop down to semi-perfect like when he puked up #18. Interesting point, Maybe 17 and 18 were more than just steroids for Cell but stabilizers as well. They were literally used for their infinite power batteries. So if #17 had a BP of 250M, #1...

Re: If Trunks and Krillin didn't destroy Dr Gero's supercomp

Seeing Cell with Buu's cells would be interesting, and effing scary. However Goku would have SSJ3, and there's still the fusions. Things would still work out in the end. I disagree. As Angelus reminded us, there'd still be 27 years before Cell is born. That means he'd have added Perfect Cell, Kaios...

Re: Can Dragon Ball create constructs like Green Lantern

Saiyan saga Piccolo can create things out of thin air that permanently solid, unlike a GL construct. In other words, DB characters surpass Green Lanterns.

Re: I'm confused by the timeline of Movie 12/Fusion Reborn

So in your opinion it's Freeza > Goku from the start and Goku used "invisible Kaio ken" but than could no longer keap up when Freeza used 50% ? Pretty much, even though I would say that he would be using Kaioken without it being noticeable in the artwork, not using "invisible Kaioken", due to the K...

Re: Would Potara Goku/Gohan fusion be stronger than Vegetto?

Given the wildly varying strengths of the three Potara fusions we see, I don't think it's as simple as "more power = more power". Gohan is waaaay beyond Goku at this point, and while that could mean his raw strength makes the fusion powerful, it could also mean the fusion fizzles like Kibitokai, or...

Re: Exactly how strong is Ox King/Gyu-Mao?

Kamesennin's fears of his students getting complacent seems to be derived from personal experience. To me, this suggests that one or more of his past students stopped training once it was evident that they were among the strongest in the world (meaning if anybody was stronger, it would be only a fel...

I was legit sad when I saw they dropped ssjg for blueper saiyan.

I think it comes down to the Z Squad being prepared/forewarned for the fight. Picture the fight as it happened. Now imagine Trunks isn't there, they don't have Senzu, Krillin isn't afraid of his foretold death and thus jumps in too... that's already the "everybody dead" part. Then with Goku long de...

Is Kibito just a really weak Kaioshin?

Prior to Goku and Gohan, nobody has been allowed on Kaioshinsei besides the Kaioshin... as explained by Kibito, who is supposed to not be a Kaioshin. He also explains that many Kaioshin including himself have tried to remove the Z-sword. So is he actually a Kaioshin, just too weak to hold the title?...

Re: HD Dragon Ball (part 1) footage exists?

"HD" in regards to Dragon Ball is quite a misnomer. Anything not filmed in HD simply can't be HD, but rather re-encoded into similar specs. There's a reason it's always less impressive than what Crunchyroll considers SD (aside from JSAT, BoG and RoF, of course).

Re: Saiyan being spelt as Saiyan

On a related note, why was Saiya-jin translated as "Saiyans" instead of "Saiyas?" Do we know if it's just oldschool dubbie dumbness or an actual mistake? It's a pretty standardized way of referring to groups of people belonging to something of a specific name. You and your peers are Canadians, not ...

You are actually trying to reasonate this. Vegeta doesn't mention "I thought you were dead, little brother". Therefore, it is an inconsistency. You're missing the point, though. He specifically says Tarble was sent away, in the same way that Raditz explained Goku and another of the four Saiyan chil...

Re: Why didn't Beerus stop the Androids?

Do people who die of natural causes even keep their bodies in the other world? Because if they do, the better question is why Goku didn't tell Trunks about the RoSAT... I don't see what that has to do with having a body in the afterlife, but the short answer is that Goku's an idiot. He didn't even ...
