Re: Could Ultimate Gohan use Kaio-ken?

Either we explain it logically, or we don't explain it at all. I choose to explain it logically. Logically, spiritual energy comes from nowhere, because it's spiritual. Well, where does physical strength come from IRL? I'd say ki comes from renerating body cells, just like physical strength/toughne...

Re: Could Ultimate Gohan use Kaio-ken?

Infinite energy is science. It exists in DB. I'm fine with that. Boo is magic. Magic doesn't have to follow logic. I don't try to explain magic. But spiritual energy absolutely must obey the laws of thermodynamics? That seems kind of weird to me. I don't and never will believe that one can get powe...

Re: Androids

Trunks called them cyborgs, though. The story does explain that #17 and #18 are technically cyborgs on multiple occasions, but they're still called androids. We'll just have to blame Dr. Gero for that. I'd rather call them "Artifical Humans" because they are all made from different origins and, eve...

Re: SSJG3 Trunks and FPSSJ Goku(Half)

By that logic Cell Games Vegeta is around USSJ2 Trunks. Why's that? Not that I'm agreeing or disagreeing--I just don't see how we got to that conclusion. Vegeta considered 50% MSSJ Goku as the tough guy. Everyone thought he might beat Cell. If resting Goku is in par with the Cell who fought USSJ2 T...

Re: How come Saiya-Jins were able to access MSSJ post-Cell?

I think they only had to stay Super Saiyan constantly for long enough to get used to it--or master it, if you prefer. They're not going to lose that skill just because they don't stay Super Saiyan constantly after that. Maybe the skill would degrade if they never used Super Saiyan again for the rest...

Re: Androids

To be honest, I don't see how people think "artificial human" is vague enough to apply to things like cyborgs. A cyborg isn't an artificial person--it's a person with artificial parts. The exception, of course, being properly artificial cyborgs, e.g. the Terminator (though as I allured to earlier, s...

Re: SSJG3 Trunks and FPSSJ Goku(Half)

However, 50% MSSJ Goku should be considerably stronger and everyne thought it was Goku's max. Trunks was shocked at his power despite having the power of a USSJ2. 50% MSSJ Goku > USSJ2 Trunks > Initial Perfect Cell ~ Resting MSSJ Goku You're giving decent reasons for your opinion, but that wasn't w...

Double checked just to be sure, and no, it was indeed Trunks. In fact, Kuririn even questions it himself by reminding Trunks that he doesn't have much fuel and that his time machine isn't very precise.

Re: Hypothetical: if Future Bulma/ Trunks went to New Namek.

It depends on certain factors. Maybe Dende could have made dragon balls capable of reviving people multiple times if they'd asked for it. Maybe it would require sacrificing some wishes (say, stick with one wish per year rather than three), but that wouldn't be so bad. After that, it becomes a questi...

Re: How do you interpret Bulma sensing Vegeta's death?

After all, it's exactly like Goku having his first Ki sensing ability when Kame Sennin died, just feeling that unexplainable bad omen digging its way in your guts at the very moment the person you knew died. Do we know that was an example of ki sensing, though? It could also have been option number...

Re: Do you think Future Trunks was a useless idiot?

Well, he did seem to forget how time travel works at one point, suggesting that he goes further back in time to stop the androids before they awaken. This could be a result of Toriyama making things up as he went...but couldn't he have had someone else, like Yamcha, suggest this course of action and...

Re: Androids

I think one thing we have to accept right away is that a lot of these terms aren't as solidly defined as we think they are. Even taking dictionary definitions into account, there are two or three opposing opinions when it comes to what counts as a cyborg. Is "artificial human" the japanese term for ...

Re: Can Birshu(Bills or Beers) sense Android ki?

What I'm wondering is how did Gero manage to find a way to convert ki? Since ki is composed of vitality, courage, and state of mind, was he only able to absorb the vitality portion? I don't see how he could mechanically convert courage and state of mind into energy. Like Kaboom said, it shouldn't b...

No one was probably paying attention. Same reason why Vegeta reached Super Saiyan 2 and didn't get noticed by the others. Also the same reason that no one but Piccolo and Gohan knew how strong Super Saiyan Goku was supposed to be when he fought Android 19. You'd think everyone on Earth would have n...

I do like how you just assume everybody knows who Goku is, though. Most people in Japan do, at least. Elsewhere is another matter, but hell, how many people outside of Japan knew who Roy and Marth were before Melee ? Of course, I don't think Goku will be in the next Smash Bros.
