Re: Could have 22nd WMAT Tenshinhan easily won the 21st WMAT

Tenshinhan could probably one shot the tourney. Though if Goku goes Oozaru, Tenshinhan gets stomped unless he somehow figures out Oozaru Goku's weakness. Character wise, he (like everyone else in DB!) likes to draw things out, but even so his earlier matches will probably be finished quicker than t...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I think East Kaioshin is jumping to conclusions, but I'm very glad they're bringing up the weirdness of forgiving Buu. It just seemed too reckless an attitude to have - as if every character cares as much about this tournament as someone like Vegetto would. I thought it was weird at the time that Gr...

Re: Could Tenshinhan's Tribeam or Dodon Ray be a planet bust

No, it'd be the same series, because every attack can. I don't know why people have such a problem with the official explanation here. Every attack has the power to destroy a planet, but they somehow use their ki control to make sure it only affects a small area. I don't have a problem with the ide...

Re: Is it a plot hole that Trunks had trouble at 100x gravit

Alternatively - and this one is a bit out there - SS raises his power a lot more than for the adults. :think:

Re: Could Tenshinhan's Tribeam be a planet buster?

There are two possibilities that come to mind: 1: Every attack which can destroy a planet, including physical ones (conservation of energy) is suppressed in a way that confines the effects to a particular area. 2: There's not a one to one relationship between the amount of stuff you can blow up and ...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Freeza was amazing. That reminds me of something I've wanted to know for a while... Was LittleKuriboh intentionally channeling Richard Dawkins when he was doing Freeza?

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I'm excited for it! Soon?

I do know that if DBZA ever gets to the Buu saga, now we need the characters to just stop in the middle of the episode and start arguing every aspect of how Buu's changing round in circles.

Re: Fanmanga - Dragon Ball New Age

To be honest, I am REALLY looking forward to that arc. Next to the World Tournament, that has been my favorite arc to plot out. It's going to be such a departure from anything that has been done in Dragon Ball. Assassins and killers have been sent to recover Dragon Balls and such before, but the go...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Nah, he just says "...and that Piccolo guy's brains"' while going over what he was absorbing. He never mentions "intelligence", or changing his personality. Ah, so I remembered wrong. He didn't actually get any smarter, he just learned facts that Piccolo knew and his attacks. He's still the same ch...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Didn't Super Buu talk about the "intelligence of Piccolo" when he was planning to absorb him? I'm sure his personality much have changed. The fact that he was able to plan for Gohan from before suggests he's smart already, but did he get smarter yet again? The manga seems to suggest that IIRC. You c...

Re: How much jump in power between 21st & 22nd Budokai?

Very large jumps in actual capability, as people have stated, but the power level jumps will be tiny. I like to semi-justify this with Toriyama talking about how muscular strength can only take you so far, and then you need ki to become the strongest in the universe. They were all using ki at that p...

Re: 4th form Freeza in the newest canon?

There's always been a non-linear relationship between how much stuff you can blow up and how much damage you can do. Big explosions seem to matter, but only up to a point. But if you assign some deal of importance to the intention behind the attacks, it works a little better. I agree, but the reason...

Re: 4th form Freeza in the newest canon?

Pure Buu says nope. Because Pure Buu is just powerful enough to blow up a planet with a normal ki blast. A bigger energy ball can blow up even more stuff though. It stands to reason that someone might not be able to not destroy something with a normal ki blast that they could by making a HUGE ball ...

Re: 4th form Freeza in the newest canon?

I think there's something to be considered in First Form Freeza creating a GIGANTIC ball of ki. The kind of attack you use matters as well as your powerlevel.

Re: Fanmanga - Dragon Ball New Age

Doing these updates was certainly worth it. Very nice. Do you have planned out how far you will go though? I know it has to at least cover Vegeta and Goku talking after defusing, because Goku acts like it was still the case that Vegeta didn't do anything to upset Rigor, but what about after that? Is...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Vegeta won both of his fights with Goku though, and he'll get a third win if you count alternate universes in this comic. He doesn't need any more glory. I don't really disagree. It seems like a lot of Vegeta fans feel that he was shortchanged for some reason though (Vegeta feels that way too!). Lo...

Re: Why is Grandpa Gohan more powerful than Roshi?

We're talking about a guy who doesn't visit his best friends in years, and who never taught Kaioken or Instant Transmission to anyone. I doubt he ever went to visit his grandpa unless it's at some special event like the heaven's tournament or something. Gohan was probably the one visiting Goku. He'...
