    Dragon Ball Z Fan Thread!



    Best movie...ever COMING TO THE U.S!




    Cold in all his glory!



    Alright maggots welcome to the DBZ fan thread. Remember the pecking order and you will do fine. There is you, the dirt, the worms in side of the dirt, Zoma, Laurcus, then Greymane. Preistalisha is awesome though, Priest made my new avatar.... WITH WORKING SCOUTER!



    Let is discuss all things DBZ! While I personally never played any of the games, talk about the games, the shows, the mini series, fan fics (i personally love AF and Multiverse), and of course the movies..... DO NOT FORGET THE ABRIDGED FOLKS! TEAM FOUR STAR!!!!

    dragonball evolution... OH GOD WHY


    Alright Talk about who your favorite characters are, why, etc. Also all the snacks are worth 1 R each (R=Raditz) yes Raditz is the currency. Prepared to be blinded by science! We do a lot of calculations. I personally have King Cold as the most powerful being in the universe. Check my math and be shocked!


    Here are some videos for your enjoyment.



















    Be civil or I will KAAAAMMEEEEEHHAAAMMEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA you


    fan fics you will enjoy
    dragon ball AF
    http://dbaf-usa.blogspot.com/ They can also be found on their fan page on Facebook.

    Dragon ball AF is two different fan fictions. There are two different authors. There is the Xicor saga and the Ize saga. Both are amazing! I prefer the Ize saga. I just have soft spot for the father of Ize. Ize has personal vendetta against Goku. I will hide for now the identity of Xicor, but let us say that he has a special connection to our favorite character. He also has something to prove. In both fan fics, Goku is in the realm of the Dragons(much more expanded upon in the Xicor saga). Both happen a few years after GT. Lets just say in that time our favorite characters in both sagas learned a few new tricks.

    Toyble is the heading for the Xicor saga, Young Jijii another author is the heading for the Ize saga.

    and DBZ multiverse
    http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-0.html

    This one takes place a few years after the Buu saga and is focused on a tournament that spans across multiple universes. Several of our favorite characters in alternate time lines make a grand appearance. What would have happened if Freeza beat Goku? What if Goku never came to earth? What if the Saiyans listened to Bardock? Each universe has a unique back story. Who knows how things would have went if Goku never hit his head, or what it would be like for him to fight the Goku we know and love! What if Goku and Vegeta did not difuse in the Buu Saga? What if Gohan failed against Cell? Or even Bojack!

    These two are in the form of comics/manga. The next two are in the form of novelization.

    DBZ Honor Trip:
    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4746383/1/Honor-Trip

    Honor Trip takes place during and after the Cell Saga. Instead of Cell being defeated by Gohan, A swift kick in the head damaged Cell neurologically. This causes him to embrace all of the positive traits of the Z fighters he has copied in his D.N.A. Cell becomes a hero and is the main protagonist of this Fan Fic. Cell Helps future trunks take down his time lines androids, and even take down his evil counter part.

    DBZ Bringer of Death
    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8162862/1/Bringer-of-Death

    Bringer of Death is a Fan Fic based on Vegeta becoming the first Super Saiyan rather than Goku. Vegeta, now with his pride at maximum seeks to claim the empire of the Frost Demons, also known as Freeza and his family. The plot follows a similar pattern to canon, but with subtle changes due to fights brought about by the Super Prince of all Saiyans.


    Now then!

    The most recent episodes of great fan work.

    Here is DBA Dragon Ball Absalon


    Here is the most current episode of DBZ abridged.

    DBZ was a big part of my childhood. Was always watching it.

    I loved it when I was a kid. But, looking back, the plot and writing was really fairly bad. It may just be because it was Funimationized, but it's actually pretty close to the overall arc of WoW lore:

    Bad guy shows up. Good guy gets stronger in order to beat him, big long difficult fight, bad guy is defeated.

    Period of happiness and a lack of strife.

    Bigger badder guy shows up. Good guy has to get even stronger in order to beat him. Big, long difficult fight, bad guy is ultimately defeated.

    Period of happiness and a lack of strife.

    Biggerer badderer guy shows up, etc. etc. etc.

    Edit: Also, the whole reliance on the 'power levels' thing was a big bunch of nonsense too. I realize they wanted to use it as a reference point for how strong someone was, but it grew way out of proportion towards the middle of the series and beyond. WTB original Dragonball without the scouter crap.

    toriama never really cared about the power levels, just food.

    most humans are random foods

    tien is fried rice

    Krillin will always be the most badass.

    I only like the ones where he beat people up.

    Which was like... what 2 episodes maybe?

    I liked original Dragonball better. Nobody became obsolete. Even Krillen was as strong as Goku at some points. It felt like a real adventure.

    I never had any love for anime in general, but DBZ has a very special place in my heart. This last spring I re-watched the android/cell sagas and holy shit... I forgot how epic they were. Cell is probably the coolest villain I've encountered in any show/movie/video game with maybe the Lich King being an exception.

    Following the conclusion of the Cell saga, I proclaimed to myself, "Derp Ima watch GT because DBZ is awesome!" ...How wrong I was. If anyone here is thinking about watching GT... stop right there. Goku is turned into a kid again, and for whatever reason he became five times the idiot he was as an adult. Most of his companions are annoying at best, and the fights are extremely anticlimactic. For example (spoilers): Goku encounters Cell and Frieza in Hell, and you think that you are about to witness the coolest thing you've ever seen... nope. He kills them with a fucking snow machine... *sigh*

    Trunks was always my favorite, maybe because he had a sword.

    Goku and Vegeta's rivalry was/is my favorite part of the series. I dislike them as friends... Too bad Goku didn't kill Vegeta when he was a Majin.

    What i tend to dislike about the series is how useless most of the side characters became, despite how much they may have trained or the such. It revolved so much on Goku and sometimes Gohan or Vegeta to be the hero that it was pretty easy to predict. And if they died then Shrenron came along in the next saga.

    Yea but that was just one time. All he did was hold cell in place and stop him from absorbing the android until goku came along to fight him. Then he absorbs 18 later anyway.

    Brian Drummond, the man who voiced Vegeta and gave us over 9000, also voiced Warboss Gorgutz in Dawn of War.

    Isn't that just awesome?

    I approve of this thread, a lot. And actually, I'd like to run something by you guys, it's my signature, and I want to see if you guys think it's accurate.

    Goku's power level is just above 950 at the start of DBZ. We know this from when Raddizt used his scouter on Goku when Goku used the kamehameha wave on him. Goku is about 23 years old at this point. After one year, Goku's max power level is 32000 with the x4 Kaio Ken. That is an increase of 33 times in one year. Goku recovers from his fight with Vegeta, and trains at 100 times gravity. In the fight with Captain Ginyu it's revealed that Goku's power level has increased to 180000 with the x2 Kaio Ken. Though it's not shown here, in theory his power level could go up to 360000 with the x4 Kaio Ken, which of course would make his base 90000. This is an increase of 11 times from just a few weeks ago.

    After recovering in the healing tank, Goku's power level again jumps up drastically. His base Power level has increased to 3 million, 33 times what his power level was a few hours ago. Not only that, but Goku can use the Kaio Ken up to times 20, making his new maximum 60 million, compared to his previous theoretical maximum of 360k. Therefore, Goku actually got 166 times stronger. Becoming a super saiyan further increased his power level to 150 million, making him 2.5 times stronger, but also making it so he doesn't need to rely on the Kaio Ken.

    Power levels stop being officially tracked at this point in the series. What we've learned though, is that Goku's power level increases from 3 main types of events. Training for x amount of time, recovering from severe injuries, and getting new transformations. The lowest increase was times 2.5 when he became a super saiyan, (lawl) and the biggest increase was recovering from the fight with Captain Ginyu and bringing the Kaio Ken up to times 20, which was an increase of 166 times. The average, seems to be about 30.

    What I have attempted to do, is power scale Goku throughout the rest of the Dragonball series, including GT. I know, real original idea lol. My method is very simple, I exponentially increase Goku's power level by times 30, (starting at 950) for every severe injury he recovers from, every year of training, and every major transformation. I understand this is fundamentally flawed. Not every increase is times 30, so this can't be perfectly accurate. I'm not looking for perfect accuracy though, just something that's in the ballpark.

    I did my best to account for every instance of power increase after the Frieza saga, all the way to the 100 year timeskip at the end of GT. Sadly I didn't document absolutely everything, mainly because I'm lazy. It was around 140 power increases though, give or take a few. A lot of those come from the 100 year timeskip where Goku trains with Shenron. My final result is in my signature, a power level a little lower than a septuagintillion.

    There are a few things that could be done differently, such as not including the 100 year timeskip, or not including GT at all. For the parameters I chose though, I think I got things as accurate as possible without asking Akira Toriyama himself.
    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.

    Toriyama really did not care about the power levels.
