Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

You might be thinking of Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta and Super Saiyan 3 Broli , which were added to Dragon Battlers pre- Dragon Ball Heroes (alongside Raging Blast 2 , which we also cover in at least one of those news posts). The earliest Heroes new, non-canonical Super Saiyan 3 transformation I can reme...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

Do any Heroes historians know what the first non-"canon" transformation added to the card line/arcade game was? Relevant to the in-progress Kanzenshuu Wiki. I want to say it was Super Saiyan Bardock, but I feel like there might have been a game-only Super Saiyan 3 somewhere beforehand. If you know t...

Re: Did Super have to redo Battle of Gods and Ressurection F for their plot?

For what we wound up with--retellings that actually cause more confusion with material to come after than their source movies would have (remember that the Super TV series never even explains why the Pilaf gang are young)--I think it's baffling that this route was chosen over simply re-airing the mo...

Re: Japanese-Language Episode Transcripts?

Yep, they're out there! This site hosts transcriptions of Japanese closed-caption tracks for multiple series, and as the OP suggests, I and others have indeed used them to weigh in on dialogue-related debates before. Just be careful about dragging these through machine translation to weigh in, as es...

Re: The "Makankōsappō"...How WOULD you localize that?

If I had to give it a translated/localized name, I'm in the camp of "Devil Drill Cannon."

"Demon Spiral Beam" if I'm feeling fancy.

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

GT has Rilld come back despite having almost the exact same origins as Baby (to say nothing of the oversight of #19), so I'd assume Baby's return was simply hand-waved away to avoid having to deal with the return of the main villain who had just been defeated last arc. Otherwise--robot souls sure a...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

So, I just watched the trailer for Universe Mission Set 6 (somehow I'd completely missed it when it came out and thought all those screenshots were just coming from the site), and it's worth clarifying here that it explicitly calls the two "Tsufruians" "artificial lifeforms." So that pendantic argum...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

I can't remember if Baby himself is ever directly referred to as a Machine Mutant in GT , but he does give Dr. Mu the plans to design the rest of them, and they all seem to share similar properties. Regardless, the idea is that how Baby looks is not how--per the original run--the Tsufruians themselv...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

As for Baby being a Machine Mutant... He's the one who created Machine Mutants dude. At best, he's a Tsufruian/Machine Mutant hybrid, or more probably a liquid metal cyborg infused with Tsufruian DNA. He still technically is the prince of the Tsufruians. Sure. It's just that the original anime tril...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

I think if the new Baby-esque characters were avatars, they wouldn't have appeared in the anime. Unless they're going to introduce them with the anime. But I highly doubt it V-Jump showed off their upcoming cards this month, which basically takes them out of the running for being avatars. Also, rei...

No one's mentioning the Truffles that showed up with Zamasu? We already know a little bit about them. They were revealed in this month's V-Jump, though all it said about them aside from card details were that they were "mysterious warriors," who would play a big role starting in the next promotiona...

Terez wrote:We did not fight. You had "all the universes" or "every universe" (I don't remember which); I suggested "multiverse" and linked you to some relevant Herms tweets. Then we discussed it, you decided it had to be "multiverse", and that was that.
Was just a little hyperbole. Terez is actually very nice.

I see. I'm not opposing, I prefer that word being used in the Dragon Ball fandom but I would like for it to appear officially as well. Xenoverse 2 also mentions "Multiverse" but in English version, I don't know if it's there in Japanese version too. Well, I don't even know if the Japanese vocabular...
