@SpeedForceSpider: lol if toriko connects vegeta would be a goner.
@ohgodwhy: oh is that a fact? goku took 28 hours to fly through the snake way. thats 1 million kilometers(the lenght of the snake way). of course since he flew he skipped all the curves so it was less than 1m kilomters but ok. even if it were 1 million that puts goku at mach 29. toriko is at least mach 600 because of the bubble way feat.
@othus12: DBZ has always been about reaction speed not travel speed. I know they don't travel anywhere near as fast as they react. With DBZ I've always found that they they seem to be able to use intense bursts of speed when needed to dodge each others ki blasts or when fighting with each other.
Now I could go into a long debate how I've always thought they've had FTL reactions, especially during the Namek Saga but I've always believed that they've had massively hypersonic reactions even since the start of DBZ. If you want to disagree with me, that's fine and I really cba to go into a long debate about DBZ reaction speed and travelling speed when I have already done so in the past.
@ohgodwhy: i dont blame you for believing that. some lower tier characters (luffy for example has massive reaction speeds) do that. toriko himself has lightspeed reactions. my point here is that even with that toriko should have no problem tagging the likes of nappa or vegeta. and considering their resist to punches and kicks things get ugly for them.
we could go for the good ol stats comparison and see who would win (dont kill me for this) im just gonna post every possible stat.
lifting strenght: edge-toriko
striking strenght: edge-toriko
DC: edge- vegeta by far
hax: edge- toriko (ultimate routine broken as hell)
intelligence: edge- toriko
in character for fights: edge-toriko (vegeta is cocky, especially scouter)
if dragon ball characters had the same resist to punches and kicks than they have against energy based attacks this would be a no contest. i wouldnt even argue for toriko it would be a stomp. but toriko excels in the one weakness of the z fighters and that's what keeps this debate alive.
@nishi99: it gets bombarded with filler? i fail to see why dragon ball characters never do that in fights oh wait its because they would die too. instead they resort to a fist fight and lower class energy strikes that sometimes dont even mountain bust. and that would result in toriko wooping vegeta.
@ChromeDisaster: yeah if vegeta started spamming ki blasts toriko would have a really hard time but i dont see vegeta doing that. at least not right off the bat.
