Whis explained why Goku and Vegeta just go Blue and smack everyone in the tournament, not that they couldn't go Blue at all. I mean, Goku went Blue to escape an hold an episode before Whis made that statement and it didn't drain his stamina. Which is why they used it in bursts. I mean, that is kind of common sense to used your strongest form in a burst to save energy over just keeping it on, especially when each episodes was around a minute or two.Rakurai wrote: ↑Thu Mar 21, 2019 1:14 pmWhis literally told us that SSB heavily drains stamina after Shin wondering why they weren't going Blue. And he still used it a whole bunch of times going against Whis' suggestive narrative. Nowhere in the narrative did it imply Goku was using it in "short bursts" to conserve stamina. It felt more like a choice by the writer of the episode.HeroR wrote: ↑Wed Mar 20, 2019 11:10 am
He didn't spam Blue, he uses in short bursts to get stuff done. Remember, the average episode of the TOP lasted a minute. He also only started having stamina issue after Jiren beat him up in 110. Before then, he had no stamina issue. He also got rag doll as a Super Saiyan 2 and wasn't even hurt at the end of the whole thing. As for the rocks, that was Vegeta's idea.
We saw it when Goku sparred with Gohan in Epsoide 90 (https://youtu.be/pBATkV8kV2Q?t=62) and even his fight with the U9 dog when he pointed out the flaw of him growing so big by absorbing his energy (https://youtu.be/uwZUDu_sbzs?t=27). That and it's how he dealt with one of the madams from U2.
Or his tag team fight with Cali and Kale in 114:
Or how he nearly rung out Jiren in 123:
Goku in the anime teamed up several times with people other than Vegeta such as 17, 18, and Frieza. Goku also teamed up with Hit in 114 and didn't back down unlike the manga. To name a few:
Saying that Goku was more dumb muscle than his manga counterpart is simply not true. In fact, your post reads like you haven't seen the TOP in the anime in awhile. Especially when he has more teamwork under him than manga Goku who only teamed up with Vegeta and Hit, when Goku worked with his entire team at several points.
Beerus wasn't in danger since Zamasu in the manga didn't kill Beerus, Dabura did that.
He didn't team up with Hit. They took on individual Pride Troopers and Hit didn't even want to team up with him. In fact, Hit took his main opponent Dyspo. Goku showed no brilliant strategy when he just literally ran through those Pride Trooper bombs using SSB. But he did use that SSG-SSB switcheroo which did show some strategy on his part. Although that was taken from the manga itself.
There was no teaming up against the male U2 warriors. They all fought individual opponents.
I did mention Caulifla, and also meant by extension Kale too.
Fair enough, I forgot about the finale with the coordination between him, 17, and Frieza. But anything with Vegeta doesn't count as Whis said they were so out of sync that not even Jiren could predict them. That's not strategy on his part.
Of course Beerus was in danger. Beerus knew from FTrunks that Black was privy to the life-death bond between a Kaioshin and a GoD. He asked Shin about it, Shin led him to Zamasu. Beerus was only acting for his own self-preservation, not for the sake of doing his job properly. He doesn't meddle otherwise. Nothing has changed.
He tagged with Hit since he was in a two-on-one vs just the one-on-one in the manga. Hit also told Goku to switch since he was fighting Dypso for a period of time, where he used the Super Saiyan God to Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan switching from the manga. That and I never used their team up as an example of Goku being brilliance, although again he did do the switching to save energy. I literally gave several other examples of that.
You mentioned 113, and I extended it to 114 where he really flexed.
How could you forget that of things? It was the grand finale of the TOP in the anime. Also, they were mostly out of sync because of Vegeta, not Goku since he did try to work with Vegeta as seen here: https://youtu.be/AbUnUSSDrbU?t=189
Also, I don't see why you're focusing on Vegeta specifically when Goku in the anime was able to work perfectly with people that he never even fought with before like 18, 17, and Freeza, which is more impressive than him fighting with Vegeta who he has trained with. Even funnier, Goku and Vegeta worked together several times even before Jiren or the TOP like them teaming up to take down Merged Zamasu and the U9 wolves:
That and the teamwork for Aniraza: https://youtu.be/Pm8kUwJsyN0?t=11
They team up since Goku, 17, and 18 even attacking together and 17 shielding them: https://youtu.be/mMafWxhKiMc?t=203
And even if you try to have wave the above, he teamed up with 17 in 119 to take out the last of U4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5g3BME8CBc and https://youtu.be/XnYI-oJf2es?t=35
Except Black went straight into the future because he was a weakling. So Beerus was never in danger in the present. Heck, not even his future counterpart was killed by Black.
