    Frieza didn't know about Earth until some earthlings showed up on Namek. My guess is that he only thought he was the most powerful because he had not explored the entire universe. Including the Milky Way Galaxy, where I believe all of GT took place.

    Yea but this is a quite normal behaviour... the spoiled son saying he is the best/strongest although he knows that his daddy and bigger brother are better/stronger.

    So it was kinda true that Frieza's Family was the strongest in the known universe at that point.
    The Androids were still "in progress" when Frieza was killed and Cell is the product of Friezas, Piccolo and Saiyan genes.
    The Kaioshins, Dabura and Buu were there a few million years before frieza was born and are basically from another dimension... frieza simply didnt know about them.

    Yea frieza and his family met no significant resistance throughout the universe, so they simply assumed no one could possibly be stronger than them.
    I think the kaioshins simply didnt care as they were many thousand times stronger than him, and frieza wasn't threatening to blow up the galaxy or anything, so they cba'ed to get up from their tea party.

    I believe Babidi and his crew didnt know of him because they were doing their business preparing for the ressurection of buu (iirc)

    The story of anything dragonball has always been the life of Goku, not who the strongest fighter ever is. It's not even as much about defending earth. It's always been about Goku. Who he is as a person, the people and places he associates himself with and the crazy events that follow. As for the Frieza comment, that was answered already.

    Also, the two above posts are filled with win.

    If you were to touch a SSJ's hair while he was transformed, what do you think it would feel like?

    Hard and spiky? Or more like the coarse thick hair of an ape? Or like how your hair feels when it stands on end from a balloon close to it?

    Would it feel warm? Shock you to the touch? Possibly burn you?

    Just something that has crossed my mind from time to time watching the show over the years.

    Ever put your tongue on the end of a 9v battery? That's how I imagine touching their hair would be. That tingling low voltage sensation that's sort of addictive, and you just want to keep doing it.

    So I've been playing Chrono Trigger lately for the SNES. Noticed Crono had the whole spiky hair thing going on and his hair rises when he casts lightning spells. Today I decided to look into the creators of the game I love so much since I had forgotten (haven't played in years).

    "Chrono Trigger was conceived in 1992 by Hironobu Sakaguchi, producer and creator of the Final Fantasy series; Yuji Horii, director and creator of the Dragon Quest series; and Akira Toriyama, famous manga artist and creator of the Dragon Ball series"

    Can't believe I never realized or noticed it before but it makes me appreciate the man even more.

    Never played Chrono Trigger, but I do have Dragon Quest VIII, and you can tell he was responsible for quite a few of the character designs.

    freiza and family were the strongest biological enemies the z fighters took on in dbz.

    the androids and cell were artificial

    (all the movie guys are non canon)

    all of bobs men were Magically enchanced and from another realm all together

    You never noticed it? One of the dudes pretty much looks exactly like SSJ teen Gohan.

    For reals eh. As I said I literally hadn't given the game a thought for like 10 years now. At least I picked up on it as soon as I started playing it this time around though, its what made me go find out who the creators were. Not to mention the super powerful space alien invading should of been a nice hint.

    Interesting. Assuming that this is indeed real, it looks good. Not too different from the GT version, but more in line with what the previous transformations looked like. Aparently it still has a tail though. If this is indeed real, I guess that GT is officially de-canonized. But I'll hold my breath. Getting too excited only to be disappointed wouldn't really be good.

    In fact, assuming that both this and SSJ3 Vegeta are real parts of the movie, it does seem like Toriyama is giving a huge middle finger to GT. I can't help but chuckle at that thought.

    I've scene it mentioned in this thread that possibly the SSJ4 we see in Gt is a primal transformation like turning into the brown or golden ozaru , or Legendary SSJ. That the transformations were used to are another new form of Saiyan transformations caused by harnessing emotions. It seems a little far fetched to me though.

    I think he will just pull the whole memory wipe card after the fight with Bils (therefore losing there new powers). Much easier then either scrapping all of GT, or pulling some excuse like I mentioned above out of nowhere. I just find it hard to believe they are going to throw all of GT out the window(as much as I want them too). Like if Toriyama had such a problem with GT would he not have stepped in when it was being made and was first shown?

    Love that pic though, looks great.

    i can totaly imagine goku/vegeta bringing bils close to his death, and just when they ask him to fuck off, he "rewind" time to make everything like he never even came to earth and then wipes their memory.

    How goku reached SS4 i dont know. Cant wait for this movie
