No, they were clearly exhausted, not only because they literally couldn't get up from the ground, but they couldn't even turn Super Saiyan anymore due to the Final Kamehameha as Vegito (which resulted in a 1-hour fusion lasting only 9 or so minutes). They couldn't have given more power than just their base form alone, since Supreme Kai explains in the next episode that they can no longer turn Super Saiyan because they wasted all their energy in the Final Kamehameha, as I was saying.Bullza wrote:They weren't that exhausted, just injured from the punch. Also just because they were in their Base form when they gave their energy doesn't mean that they only gave a Base level amount of power.SupremeKai25 wrote:The energy of two exhausted base form saiyans who were no match for Fused Zamasu (so much so that he easily crushed them with one punch and would have killed them too), a bunch of worthless civilians, and the nature of a dying planet that was literally being torn asunder.
The Spirit Bomb is generally just as powerful as need be. The one Goku threw at Frieza was huge and that only got energy from the plants and the land. Also I don't think the power of the individual actually factors in because the Spirit Bomb is taking Genki energy so it should be no different if it was from Gohan or from Farmer with Shotgun.
He did have another Rage Boost prior to attacking Fused Zamasu the first time, just before he broke his sword in two.That is the worst offender, yes, but I'm not referring just to that. I am also talking about the moments prior to that, when he was able to trade blows with Fused Zamasu all on his own, parry his attacks, and even mutilate his chest, before the enemy's regeneration kicked in.
So Trunks at that point would have been even stronger than he was when he fought Goku Black. Presumably after the Rage Boost he was back on Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Vegeta's level again.
As for your second point, you don't think that Trunks' rage boost shenanigans are ridiculous? So lazy. Oh, Trunks, the guy who 10 minutes ago was just fodder for Black (so much so that he believed that Future Zamasu alone would be enough to beat him), is suddenly able to reach a level equal to that of Fused Zamasu because... rage. Of course, rage! Because if you are really, really angry, you can have all the power you want!
Besides, even after his initial rage boost, he still stood no chance against Fused Zamasu, who easily parried his attack and dealt with him with a point blank ki blast, and proceeded to almost overwhelm him with the divine Holy Wrath, before Vegeta suddenly recovered from his injuries and helped Trunks before it was too late. I fail to see how the rage boost that Trunks got could have possibly made him so strong, aside from "plot", because Fused Zamasu can't win otherwise the show ends.
