    You know that scene in DBZ Kai where Krillin + Gohan were putting on the new saiyan armor on Namek and they commented about the shoulderpads being a lot more flexible than they looked and not restricting arm movement at all? Was that added in Kai to help explain the shoulderpads, or was it in DBZ as well :P

    It is in the manga.

    Though I kind of wonder what the point of the armour is anyway. Its been pretty much proven that anyone at around Nappa's level has skin tougher than the armour.

    It works out well for the low-level soldiers who have power levels of <2000, and I believe Vegeta, Nappa and Raditz wore it for sentimental reasons to remember their Saiyan heritage.

    Goku and Krillin proved the pointlessless of the armor anyway, given a choice they almost always chose the traditional martial-art cloth lol.

    I kinda like it too, reminds me of Ryu and Akuma.

    well no need to run around naked
    I guess the armor is more for style, but it likly helps a bit especially for the low level soldiers

    also its clothing that does not inhibit movement and offers some protection, i say it works

    Goku usually is always wearing weighted clothing anyway. That ways tonnes. Maybe that acts like better armor.

    I always wondered If I were to punch Goku wearing that weighted shirt that if it would feel like punching a lead wall. Just the fabric itself kinda of boggles my mind.

    The generalist looks outward; he looks for living principles, knowing full well that such principles change, that they develop. It is to the characteristics of change itself that the mentat-generalist must look. There can be no permanent catalogue of such change, no handbook or manual.

    King Kai is a seriously underrated tailor.

    Probably Super Saiyan Goku vs Frieza. Well, there's still quite a bit of talking, but they go at it for several minutes at a time uninterrupted at various points in the fight.
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    That's like the most dragged out fight in the whole anime -_-

    I would say the Z Warriors vs Vegeta/Nappa was far more fast paced and eventful.

    Note I said Super Saiyan Goku vs Frieza. As in all the stuff after Goku transformed, not the 8 or so episodes before that. Though I guess the first part of that fight is a little slow. If I recall though, everything after everyone is wished to Earth is basically just a brawl between Goku and Frieza.

    Vegeta vs Goku (first fight). They pretty much just go at it until the Kamehameha vs Galick Gun. After that, it's kind of 50/50 until they reach the point where Vegeta is using Goku as a squeaky toy.

    Well they are pretty beat up at that point and can't be as fast paced when out of energy and half dead :P
