Re: Is it true that Krillin is around #18's strength?

No, he's likely still quite a bit behind Freeza. Lack of evidence isn't evidence in the case of saying, "Well, nothing says this character didn't get this strong, so I say he did!"

Re: The "smaller than flea" argument.

Goku was bluffing. It's obvious by his expression after his blast failed to even dent Boo's insides that he didn't know his power had changed. The flea argument is desperation at its finest.

Re: How Strong Are Movie 8 Z Fighters?

I believe Goku is the same strength as his Cell Games counterpart (being that Toei had the correct design and knew Goku only used half his power at Korin's place), and everybody else is much weaker than that, especially Gohan.

Taking character statements seriously.

I came across this interesting take on the series and wanted some opinions on it. I've seen folks argue we shouldn't simply take statements made by characters as true until proven guilty, so to speak, but never have I seen someone actually go this deep about it. I am trying to drag you away from thi...

Re: Do you think Son Gohan held his own against the Androids

Considering Future Trunks when he arrived to kill Cold and Freeza had been stated to be hardly superior to Future Gohan, and he admitted he was no match for the androids, it can be safely assumed Gohan got slaughtered.

Re: Did the Daizenshuu overrate Nappa?

Piccolo was 3,500. While Gohan's rage boost did boost him to an extent where Piccolo would be suprised, it doesn't mean that Gohan surpassed him. Piccolo was talking about Gohan's rage boosted power when he made that comment, wasn't he? Gohan was in fact fueled by rage when he fired his Masenko, wa...

Re: Vegetto/Gogeta Rank

Why would Potara be showered with such praise if it produced power nearly equivalent to the Fusion Dance? That doesn't make any sense to me.

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

Gohan stated in Viz (not sure about the original Japanese version) that he could get from his house to school in 20 minutes. I've found that this is different in the Italian translation, which is apparently one of the best official translations. In that translation, Gohan said it would take him 20 ...

Re: Vegetto/Gogeta Rank

Movie Gogeta can be however strong one deems him to be, but he's not in the manga. I just don't see a real need to differentiate between two different "versions" of Gogeta, really. I think that coming to extreme conclusions like "SSj3 Gogeta would get wrecked by Base Vegetto" just reeks of digging ...

Re: Vegetto/Gogeta Rank

The implication is they don't have enough time to perform the dance. Are you responding to me? If so, which implication at which point? I'm a bit confused. "Vegetto > Gogeta" is the only solid power hierarchy fact as far as I'm concerned, because we've got some guidebook clarification and what-not ...

Re: Vegetto/Gogeta Rank

Goku knew the risks of using the Potara, as well as the benefits, and blatantly told Vegeta that it was the "only way" to beat Gohan-Boo. Why spend eternity fused with your bitter rival, ruining both of your guys' lives, if you could demolish your foe with the Fusion Dance and regain your normal sel...

I thought the invisible Kaio-ken theory originated from the anime, but now it's apparently in the manga too? :cry: I've never taken Kaio's statement to mean Goku was using it that very second, where we see him with no aura (or don't see him at all, can't remember). I took it as a general statement. ...

Re: Was Goku really stronger than Kid Boo?

I was referring to your claim that Buu doesn't push the Genkidama back. While he doesn't quite do it in the manga, that bit of filler isn't completely made up. Yeah, him pushing the ball back was an embelishment, but it's not completely made up. In the manga, Buu's able to stop the Genkidama. It's ...

Yeah, by what we know of that whole scheme, Buff Boo would have to be weaker than Gotenks-Boo but stronger than Evil Boo.

Re: Was Goku really stronger than Kid Boo?

First off, that bit of "filler" is legit considering the text, secondly, it's pretty darn clear that Goku would've lost that fight had his energy not been restored. Goku wasn't Buu's equal. Maybe in terms of power, but not in terms of stamina. Goku was worn out, but Buu looked fine the entire fight...

I believe he can sense ki too. He knew Goku wasn't dead from his death beams, citing his strength. As for what Cooler thought, wouldn't it make sense for him to be thinking of his brother's full power when comparing someone to him? I think it'd be a little odd for him to go, "Hm, you're enough to ha...
