    Kamehameha on the other hand is also a high concentration of Ki in a form of a medium-sized beam, that is supposed to either push it's target away or completely anihilate it. It can also blow up moons as shown in original Dragon Ball series by Muten Roshi during Tenkaichi Tournament.

    Final Flash - just like Kamehameha, but looks like it's the power of Super Saiyan form concentrated and fired as a monster-sized beam.


    As to Ki releases on punches .....
    There are 2 possibilities:

    1) They are using Ki to accelerate the speed of their punches and to reinforce their body, which leads to increased power ..... something like releasing it from the back of their hands to accelerate ?
    2) They are using Ki to directly increase the damage of their punches of their fists and to reinforce their body ..... releasing it from the front in a form of small explosions ?

    Was it ever explained HOW they are using their Ki to increase their power ? I do remember Piccolo talking about that to android Dr. Gero or Cell, but if memory serves me well it was along the line of "we release our Ki in short bursts to increase our power" ..... or something like that.
    The best explanation of how they use ki to increase the power of their physical attacks is in the anime, specifically, the fight with the Ginyu Force. After Goku elbows Recoome and takes him out in one hit Vegeta goes into a fairly detailed explanation of what happened.
    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.

    It was good, damn good. I ddid miss the normal training later on in the series though and Goku's growth spurt was a shocker.

    2 things, first off what's the appeal of Dragon Ball AF? The series ended well and I doubt that there's going to be another season or series anytime soon. Secondly am I the only one who cringes at these pictures from meme sites and 9gag?

    I think it's very likely there will be another series soon. Otherwise Battle of Gods is a very dastardly tease.

    Still can't find a watchable version of that . Managed to stay spoiler free all this time to so its killing me.

    This gave me a chuckle, regardless of its bad grammar.


    Also, nice find on that map.

    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. You must look at it with as few preconceptions as possible, asking yourself, "Now what is this thing doing?" -Children of Dune

    That image gave me both a feeling of "awesome!" and "we're all gonna die aren't we?".

    Also, can't help but chuckle at the predator. Because female body. Predator with boobs.

    ... well it could be worse, we almost had a Yakon with boobs in DBM...

    Always wondered why it's called Kame House actually.

    Who is Kame..

    Oh nvm figured it out as I was typing, it's the Japanese name for Turtle Hermit or something. Kame-Sennin.

    That map is pretty cool, makes the world seem a lot smaller though. I find it amusing how 90% of the terrain is uninhibited wasteland comprised of rocks that hold the properties of foam, just like how earth is depicted in the show.

    That and Roshi vs King Piccolo was in the middle of that wasteland. :P

    It does indeed make the world seem smaller than it is. When you realize that the islands where Cell gained perfection is quite close to the Frypan mountain. It's a little weird to see some things so close together. Or realizing that Frieza's landing is close to the place where Goku and Vegeta battled, which is also close to where the Cell Games were held.

    But there is indeed a very large portion of land just being desert. And it's needed or else a lot of cities would be in trouble.
    And the battle between Roshi and Piccolo is truly out in the middle of nowhere.

    Browsed the Dragon Ball wikia, and apparently this is from the Daizenshuu #4, making it canon



    Assuming they got the translations right, the map on the previous page is accurate.

    According to Erasa (the blonde from Gohan's high school), Gohan lives over 1000 km away from Satan City.

    Measuring from Son Family Home to Satan City, and then the width of the map, the circumference is about 10500 km, about 1/4 the size of Earth.

    I hope no one does calculations with the planets size, i think it should be irrelevant. since a planet the 4th of earths size cannot hold an atmosphere.

    probably a Pangaea type planet which we will never know cause if it is the 3/4th that keeps it from being earths size is probably all just water.
