I'd amend that to say it was an early Super-like fight, as in the BoG or RoF arcs. Super did much better fights later on.

I know this is just a short promotional throwaway, but I hope we get some explanation of who Cumber is, where he comes from, and how he can be so absurdly strong (fighting on par with SSB Kaioken Vegito in base?).

I have a theory, that at some point Cumber was supposed to be Broly. But since Broly is making a big comeback in the new movie, they changed him in the show into this new "evil Saiyan" to avoid confusion / watering down / spotlight-sharing.

The anime doesn't say it, but I think it's mentioned elsewhere that Cumber was an ancient Saiyan who fought the original Super Saiyan God. He may have been the one to beat him, actually. I suspect Shallot, another recently created ancient Saiyan, may have also been involved somehow in the history of the Super Saiyan God.

Anyone got a source on that?

In the manga Cumber went crazy when he saw Goku in SSJ God state. He said something like: "A Saiyan with red hair!" and attacked him straight away. That means he must have seen SSJ God in the past, probably even fought against one.

And considering Yamoshi lost that fight... yeah, that could have totally been Cumber.

Even amongst those arcs DBS had some stand out sequences especially compared to their movie counterparts (exception of Shida's cut in BoG).

Probably a question no one has the answer to, but is there an estimate of how many episodes this'll last? Can't imagine more than 50 or 100 considering how slowly they're released.

I imagine somewhere between 12 to 24 episodes.

Just assumed that because it's the normal amount of a DB series. Though, this is a promotional one.

Vegetto jobbing out to Cumber, only for Goku to team up with Fu and they eventually will most likely force him to retreat?.. No thanks.

Kinda awkard that Vegetto just acted when Cumber was about to use his Death Ball or such, not because he was CHOKING his son at first.

I don't care if this guy is Ancient Saiyan or whatever, I'll never swallow him giving trouble to a freaking Vegetto Blue with KAIOKEN. If he turned a Golden Oozaru before, well I could wave that.

Anyway that was just a waste of time that I hope the main series never gets to that level of non sense, poor storytelling for just the sake of selling stuff.

Oh that's right we are almost there

Literally a stereotype of what non-DB fans think about the series: Shouting, big beams and more shouting. Any semblance of martial arts or even fight scenes is gone. I know this is promotional, but holy shit. Even the 1 minute trailers in DBH get better animation than this and in general are more fun.
You described exactly my thoughts.

Are you kidding? We didn't even get a proper explanation of what was Trunks new transformation and Goku using God again on the actual anime and you're expecting something from that promotional throwaway (like you said)? :D

Well, off the top of my head, I don't have any questions to make about Heroes and its lore, which shows that the story Heroes has been telling so far has been pretty much explained or that does not require "spoon-feed". On the other hand, I do have a lot of questions about the series and some of them you yourself mentioned. So yeah, we can expect something from that "promotional throwaway", can't say we can expect something from a goddamn "main series" though.

Just a reminder: not everyone is tuned into Heroes (manga) or has any interest about it, so yeah the "fair" comparison is still between these two animated series.

Goku using SSG frequently again doesn't really require an explanation. It's a form he has, didn't use it for a while and now using it again. The rare times Goku uses SS3 are we supposed to question that? In fact in DBS they actually did give an explanation about SSG's speed and conserving energy etc.

Goku and Vegeta are naturally getting stronger, learning as they go, I am sure the ToP would perhaps make them think about how to conserve energy etc in battle. And probably there and then they decided to ditch SS2 (3 in Goku's case) and concentrate on SS/SSG/SSGSS. The ToP was all their training tested up to that point, there is always room to reflect and grow.

Sediment is the dirt in the ground or on beaches or something like that.
Actually try looking it up, if you want, because I can't come up with a proper definition :think:
