Like a soldier needs therapy after all that combat high, and an artist can be drugged to appear more creative, a Dragon Ball fighter lets power get to his head, so that he can exert himself harder, but weaken his soul against the wicked. The societized world of Dragon Ball consists of the Gods' hierarchy, who either conceal their power or have none, so that they are the strongest entities. I realized this when Vegeta was looking for Merus's power and Moro got to his and Goku's head by using magic. Do you think that letting go of it and fighting by nature will have been their answer?
