That's just the tip of the iceberg, and I'm positive I missed a few because I've discussed all of this stuff at length. This shit is absolutely bonkers. It's everywhere in the anime and you don't even have to look, while the manga at least tries to explain itself most of the time.
Wow, well you are really insisting upon derailing this thread. Oh well, it can't be helped.
Ok that's great and all that you don't like the anime, but this was supposed to be about things that were objectively contradictory
not something that you just disagree with or believe to be subjectively illogical. Most of it consists of: misinterpretations, things that you don't like,(subjectively illogical to you
), leaving out context, or are just factually incorrect. Except for this:
Oh, speaking of Goku: Genki Dama in the tournament is somehow vastly stronger than the one in the Buu arc, despite containing considerably less genki. Doesn't begin to compute, and that's not even going into the massive characterization problems associated with that episode.
Is actually a contradiction. I have seen people say that it is how the increased power of the characters has manifested itself and shows just how much stronger they have gotten, but that would only hold true if the Genki Dama was made of ki and not genki. But it is made of genki, and it being a massive Spirit Bomb with less than a dozen people is objectively not consistent with what we see in the Buu arc. So in that respect, you're right. I wasn't a fan, but I don't think it is really a big deal.
But there weren't any "massive characterization problems" in that episode. Not at all. But if you want to see massive characterization problems, look no further than Chapter 39.
Future Zamasu can literally keep up with SSB Goku one moment and then get his ass kicked by SS2 Trunks the next with zero explanation, which is outrageously stupid and remains the subject of countless scaling debates to this day. On the other hand, the manga specifies exactly what ballpark he's in, so you don't have people constantly playing the guessing game over whether he's supposed to be god level or beneath it whenever they discuss that version.
Yeah, Future Trunks fucked up the scaling in that arc fairly frequently. It's one of the gripes I have with that arc. So yeah, you're onto something here too. But at least this doesn't contradict material associated with the original series and completely undermine the narrative premise of the Zamasu arc. That honor was kept for the manga.
That's incorrect. Elder Kai specifically says he self-destructed.
Yeah he does self-destruct. But it doesn't contradict anything because he doesn't actually need a bomb to self-destruct. You can use ki to self-destruct like Vegeta did against Majin Buu, or Goku was going to use against "Omega Shenron" in GT. Especially given 17 had been training for the previous 13 or 14 years, it would make sense that he would be capable of such a thing. Nothing inconsistent here whatsoever. It was never specifically mentioned that he had used the bomb in his chest to self-destruct, well, because it was removed long ago.
