Episode 39: Goku: "As expected...The strength in his attacks have powered up, as well."Hugo Boss wrote:You missed the part where Gohan says he will try to lure Dyspo in his trap. And I never said it was an one sided fight, only that Gohan could manage something if they were in equal conditions. It would be one sided if Dyspo was running free. That’s why Gohan’s elimination wasn’t as undermine as it looked in paper.Miracles wrote:Dyspo had Gohan on the ropes and was about to deliver a finishing blow until some plot kicked in and Gohan grabbed Dyspo fist stating he can't afford to lose. It wasn't a one-sided fight, even tho they took his advantage in movement away. Also, it is not a fanmade rule that Power ups increase overall power. The fanmade rule is trying to turn Dragonball into some type of one type attack specialist and pretending skill can override raw power. Why do you think Goku changed from red to Blue in the instant he attacked to stop Dyspo from blitzing him? Whis even states this approach "maximizes his speed and power!" Why do you think UI Goku needed a power boost even though he has auto dodge to even compete with Jiren?Hugo Boss wrote: Hit powers up and doesn’t increase his powerlevel. Also, I don’t see the need to abide to fanmade rules. We have a clear case of a character only increasing his speed and that alone seems enough to justify his performance. Once his movements are restricted he is no big deal to Gohan.
Same with Hit in episode 39...Goku: "As expected...The strength in his attacks have powered up, as well."
Power-ups, despite the name, don’t always increase “powerlevel”. That is kind of a generalization. In Hit’s case, his yelling and aura burst only increased the length of “time-skip”. Not once Goku said his attacks were more powerful in that episode, unless the official subs are very off.
Also, I saw when Gohan said he will lure in Dyspo. He lured him into the cage so he could force Dyspo to not dodge his attacks but fight him in a "straight up brawl." This is based on strength alone, no speed.
