What if: no teleportation

Post by JulieYBM » Wed Jul 22, 2020 12:28 am

I was thinking, what would happen if Gokuu couldn't teleport? What story ideas would one have to rely on in that case? Vegeta and the others fighting and maybe defeating Mecha Freeza before Gokuu returns? Vegeta achieving Super Saiyan to beat Mecha Freeza and then immediately fighting Gokuu upon his landing?

Seems like fun just thinking of all the plot twists one can do without the convenience of teleportation...

Freeza would have killed everybody on Earth before Goku could arrive. There would be absolutely no way to stop this from happening without teleportation. This would be in the original timeline, meaning there is no future Trunks to travel back in time and fight Freeza.

There would also be no way to save Piccolo and Tenshinhan from Semi Perfect Cell. Goku would either let them die most likely, or possibly travel there on a suicide mission.

The Perfect Cell fight wouldn’t be much different except Goku wouldn’t land that epic instant Kamehameha. He still loses either way.

Goku probably cannot save earth from Cell’s self destruct. If he somehow does, Cell would be trapped in the afterlife because he wouldn’t learn teleportation.

Goku might have made it to earth way earlier if he didn't spend so much time learning teleportation on Yardrat.

They're going to run into a huge problem when they get to this part in the story -

Maybe Piccolo could use Kami's Kai Kai to teleport him to Other World? Would he be willing to kill King Yenma though?


Assuming they survive that, they would either have to call New Namek using King Kai or fly to New Namek themselves in a space ship any time they want to use the Dragon Balls. It's hard to say if Dende would come live on Earth.

I suppose Frieza would have already killed and tortured Goku's friends by the time they arrived with Beerus and Whis in Resurrection F too.
