Come on. One merge with a powerful namek is not going to make you as strong as Freeza. Piccolo's Ki had to have been at least over the 100,000 mark by the time he was revived!! I am not 100% on this assumption, but raw skill's meant absolutely nothing when Freeza went to Form 3!

Piccolo was real strong, eventhough he did no serious training on Kai's planet. I just find it hard to believe that one single merge would make him that powerful!!?

Hell, I don't think anyone really knows exactly what fusion does :P
Well, it's obvious that PL + PL =/= Fusion Power. For example, we KNOW that Nail was at 45,000. That's his given PL. 45K + 10K =/= 1mil. Beyond that Base Buu Saga Goku + Base Buu Saga Vegeta =/= stronger than Super Buu3. It's pretty obvious addition isn't the method.

100K? Not a chance in H.F.I.L. since that would mean his power increased at least 40 fold while on King Kai's in only a couple weeks. Meanwhile, Goku, who had several months, didn't even get a 20 fold boost. Fusion = Character of god like power.

Piccolo was obviously stronger than Freeza.

There has been no instance in Dragon Ball Z where the weaker fighter is superior / wins against a stronger oponent.

Piccolo MUST have been stronger than at least Nail. The reason we know this comes from when he fused with Kami; he said to call him Piccolo afterwards since the largest part of him was comprised of Piccolo. Had it been Nail, then when Nail+Piccolo fused, he would have preferred being called Nail.




...And Nail's PL was 42,000, not 45,000. 8)

There's no evidence that Piccolo was stronger or anywhere near as strong as Nail was. In both fusions, Piccolo remained the dominant persona because Nail and Kami both chose to use Piccolo as the host, thereby giving their beings over to him. Nail was the strongest Namekian warrior on the planet at the time, having been trained in the ancient ways. Plus we all saw his power reading, and there's no way Piccolo could have improved that much in the short time at Kaio's.

Piccolo and Goku were weaker than Raditz and they won. I think it's the only fight in DB period where the weaker person/people won...

42, 45, whatever. XP

Raditz was beaten by a Makankousappou which was at over 1300.

Doesn't matter if the attack was stronger. The fighters were weaker.

Basically, power levels measure how much "ki" is being used by the fighter as physical power. In Dragon Ball, the warriors use up a certain amount of the ki their bodies produce to act as their physical power, and the rest is kept in reserve. When a character does a ki attack, he draws up ki from that reserve to form the attack. That's why Piccolo's Makanko-whatever attack was much more powerful than he was.

Vegeta specifically mentioned that Piccolo's Ki was higher than Freeza's.

Yes that pic is a wise and strong fighter but it's true that pic is stronger then nail cuz when the ginyu force went to haven they fight the Z-humans and lost and there power was T-80,000
Y-60.000
C-15,000


So the ginyu force got their but beet and pic was as strong as T- in the saiyan-Jinn saga so I'm guessing that pic was at a good 90,000-and nail 42.000 but becuz nail said how great fusion is that mabe make him at 800,000 but still friz got him by 200.000 so i guess that training with his mind payed off.

cuz after pic got friza tried he got stronger faster and more powerful and then start toying with pic.

but yeah that does suck that ((pic) one of tha old G,s and went to hell

WTF is this... ?!

My friend, you seriously need to re-read the forum rules (which you agreed to before signing up). If I see your post count reach 5 with another one like this, you'll be out on your rear-end without so much as a goodbye.
