Re: Why do people argue about 'canon'?

However, when it comes to GT, still to this day, I have never seen an official source declare that it's NOT canon. It's always coming from fans that dislike/hate it. I don't think that's necessarily true. People form their own canons, whether they're simply fans or creators who are actually involve...

Re: "Explain why DBZ is bad."

Deus Ex Machinas The RoSaT, fusion, SSJ3, and pretty much everything else in the Buu saga are major deus ex machinas. DeM's tend to kill the beleivability of stories, even ones as ridiculous as DBZ's. I just wanted to focus on this point for a second. Do these even count as Deus Ex Machinas? A char...

Re: Theorizing Plot Holes: Cell's Survival of the IT Kameham

There's one explanation I don't think anyone's raised in the thread yet: Cell could have been lying about it being in his head. Why give away your weak spot? I'm not saying this is what I believe or anything like that. Cell is certainly arrogant enough to tell the truth, and normally a writer wouldn...

Re: Is it "Boo" or "Buu"?

I use Boo because it's closer to the original. But it isn't. The original is ブウ (bū). How is "Boo" closer to that than "Buu?" Well, there isn't really a difference between ブー and ブウ, they're simply different ways of writing bū . He didn't change the pronunciation at all, unlike the majority of his ...

Re: How much stronger is Ultimate Gohan than SSJ3 Goku?

The question is in the title. I say less than 10 times stronger. That sounds reasonable. If Super Saiyan Gotenks really would have been enough to handle Fat Buu, we could say that he was around the same as Super Saiyan 3 Goku; if you believe the official multipliers, that would make Super Saiyan 3 ...

Re: The Super Genki Dama

Technically, Toriyama only told us that ki is made up of spiritual powers such as genki, yuuki, and shouki. He doesn't say that they're the only three--in fact, the way he words it sort of implies otherwise to me. I think you're on to something with the idea that genki is needed to turn ki into a fo...

Re: Gotenks vs. Fat boo

I don't think "his power is like a lie" is supposed to be taken as "his power is literally a lie". It just seems like a typically Japanese way of saying that his power is unbelievable to me. Like how you wouldn't take the English comment "his power is unreal" to mean "his power literally isn't real".

Re: How strong was Dabura?

But there is literally no such thing. There's zero purpose for it. It's just suppression. It's probably just different people using slightly different terminology. If you consider anything below their maximum to be "suppressed", then what you're saying makes sense. Someone else might only consider ...

Re: What happens to ki when someone dies?

Totally off topic (derailing my own thread :P ) but I've heard of this Hunter x Hunter brought up on the forums before. I've been looking for a new manga to get into. I'm assuming that this is pretty good? Worth a read? I highly recommend it. Its only problem is that the author is slow (at least so...

Re: Could Ultimate Gohan use Kaio-ken?

So. Is KK being anyhow magical possible? Anything in DB is possible. Is KK being anyhow magical likely? Nothing ever suggests that, so it's pretty safe to assume it's not (unless we ever get a confirmation that it is). THAT's what logic is. If we can't even agree on how ki works to begin with, then...

Re: What happens to ki when someone dies?

I'm not saying we should apply everything from Hunter x Hunter to Dragon Ball, but I do think that a lot of its concepts could fit, or at the very least make someone wonder if something about Dragon Ball's ki could be explained in a similar way. For instance, in Hunter x Hunter, focusing all of your...

Re: Did Kid Buu kill Arale?

"Toon force" (who came up with that term, anyway? so stupid-sounding...) being used in fights/power comparisons is nonsense and garbage. Gag characters are not magically omnipotent in non-gag scenarios just because. They can do absurd things way beyond their normal level of power sometimes as a jok...

This got me curious. Why didn't Akira explain Ki more? Akira used psychic power, not ki--although they're arguably the same thing depending on how you look at it and what franchise you're talking about. ...Oh! You meant Akira Toriyama! I think he left ki intentionally vague to avoid contradicting h...

Re: Is SSj only 4x base later on?

Vegeta said that "(Saiyans) can't be reduced to numbers" He also said that a Saiyan is ten times stronger as an Oozaru, so I don't think he has a fundamental problem with multipliers. I think he meant it more along the lines of not being able to predict the outcome of a fight or how much stronger a...

The same line of logic can be used to say that, "At least whoever's in Melee is a Nintendo character!" Snake is not. Your argument implies that the development of these games is not progressive... Snake and Sonic have proven that to not be the case, so just because Goku didn't originate in a video ...
