Is Burter faster than light?

In this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0fhIJGIfic&list=FLH7NDs5fey2Ake9muWC1zsQ&index=3&feature=plpp_video at 1:19, Burter says that he is faster than light. But I thought DBZ characters weren't faster than light... at least not so early in the manga.

The FTL claim was quite likely a dub addition. By feats around Frieza saga, Goku's flying speed after he recovered and went to battle Frieza's final form would put him in the low hundreds in Mach speed, making the strongest characters in the series at that point just about that fast, disproving the FTL boast from the dub. Before Frieza saga started, the fastest characters in the series would be capable of moving at about Mach 30 around Saiyan saga and the members of the Ginyu force would be capable at moving in the high tens in Mach speed based on powerscaling of comparing the speed feats of Goku between Saiyan (when he flew on Snake Way after King Kai's training) and Frieza sagas (the mentioned feat above).

@Dream:

It wasn't added in the dub, its a scan that someone re-edited to say he was faster then light.

Burter really said he was the fastest in the universe in the official manga & anime

@Destinyheroknight: Gotta love ignorance from my end.  XD
 
I just assumed that the guy had some random clip of the anime.
 
But still, no one in DBZ is faster than light. At best, they would be about relativistic by around DBGT, and that's only if you consider the series a part of DB canon.

I don't think so.

No, If he could move faster than light wouldn't that make him completely invisible while in movement, and beyond that why would it take people faster than him a long time to get places, moving at light-speed you should be able to travel around an Earth sized planet 7-8 times in a second, while there are plenty of instances were this is thrown out.

Your calculation have gotta be to low though, Kid Goku was supposedly faster than lightning which is much faster than Mach 30

No, He is just a Big Blue Snake guy.

Agreed, that'd have to be really low.

Because by the Piccolo moon-busting calc, they are in triple-mach territory from the saiyan saga, as far as reaction speeds/attacks speeds are concerned, and that's if you're lowballing it. Otherwise, they're on the relativistic level.

I take you're referring Mr. Popo training that Puts Kid Goku at lightning timing, more specifically the "you must be calm as the ocean and fast as lightning" part.

How many times must be repeated that it was a hyperbole, if he was that fast as a kid the would have gone and come back from the snake way in one day, and even if you consider that he could use that speed in short intervals, he would make in a week most, not in six months.

I think you're over estimating the speed of lightning a bit to much. Not to mention travel speed and fighting/combat speed are 2 completely different things. It'd be best you not try to relate them at all since they are not similar.
