What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

Post by ricky84 » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:13 pm

It could be for any series. My choices are (in no order):

1. Yamcha is Gohan's dad
2. Hit's clone in the ToP
3. Goku Black killed Jiren's parents
4. Tapion gave Future Trunks his sword
5. That Goku and Vegeta have 2 bases
6. That the entire franchise is Goku's coma induced dream (since he hit his head as a baby)
7. That Goku Black is Goten

- Goku Black is Future Goten;
- Goku Black is Gowasu;
- The spirit of Zamasu is inside Future Zeno;
- The Grand Priest is Zamasu.
"You give corruption far too much credit, evil does not inform good. It sullies it, like the Babari sullied their world with violence, and that arrogant Goku sullied this sacred ground by swinging his fists at a God. Mortals receive the divine gift of intellect, the potential for wisdom, but they misuse it to destroy the beauty of creation. Mortals do not succumb to evil, they are the evil. They create it, and spread it with minds they shouldn't possess. How can we call ourselves gods if we watch this plight and do nothing to stop it?"

Zamasu/Fused Zamasu fan.

That has nothing to do with a theory. The scene exists soley for this purpose. Of course it is not possible that Future Trunks had met Tapion like this but don't think the movie guys care about such a thing. They wanted a cool scene for an "oh!" moment and that's it.

Another really dumb theory that was mostly popular with the yaoi crowds was that saiyans reproduce homosexually :lol:

      Goten Black was probably the stupidest one I've ever seen.

      Another one I've heard over the years is that Goten is Gohan's son, with all the cringe it implies.

      I mean this was a pretty fair guess at the time. I wouldn't call this "one of the dumbest fan theories"

      Oh man, I actually remember stumbling across some people (on a Pokémon forum, of all places) talking about this waaay back in the day when I wasn't even into DBZ yet. Apparently they hadn't seen the Bardock special because they seemed to be under the impression that no female Saiyans had appeared, and thus maybe they didn't need female Saiyans to reproduce.

      Extra weird because they knew about Gohan and Trunks being half-Saiyan and all... I guess they thought Saiyans could reproduce with either other male Saiyans, or with females of other species?

      - Hit could naturally time travel
      - Freeza would win the ToP and retcon the entire series
      - Jiren was secretly training Goku and Vegeta to engage in a Holy Civil War with the evil GP and angels.
      - Jiren himself killed his own family and was living in denial
      - All the erased universes were going to merge and become one giant universe with the 8 kais and gods of destruction.

      I don't really know about theories per se, but fan misconceptions that become common belief to build theories off from are just the worst. Some of that crap like "Raditz & anyone stronger than him can move faster than the speed of light!" has been pushed for years, and it hasn't died down even though the first character confirmed in-universe to be faster than light is Dyspo. I thank the English dub for a lot of these misconceptions, I mean does anyone truly believe that Goku knows who Isaac Newton is, let alone that he studied apples falling from trees???

      -Pan married Trunks. This thing was even STATED in one of polish magazines :shock:
      -Gogeta was SSJ5 because when base Goku and Vegeta fused they become SSJ :roll:
      -DBS overwrites GT :lol:
      -Shenron and Omega Shenron have equal power. This thing exists in minds of people who think DB started with Raditz :clap:

      After a trip down memory lane, I found other cringe-worthy fan theories:

      - Fused Zamasu had a halo so he became an angel on the level of power of Whis and Vados;
      - Gohan realizes that he must help his friend Trunks and travels to the future. After Vegito defuses, Gohan arrives and fuses with Trunks. Gohanks kills Fused Zamasu with a Galick Kamehameha;
      - Goku Black is the Universe 10's God of Destruction because his idle pose is similar to Beerus'.
