Dragon Ball » Do you agree with this DBZ strength list?

@MisterShin: Dude, what? There are three major things wrong with that list:

  • Future Trunks is way more powerful than Piccolo, probably as a regular Super Saiyan, but even if you argue against that Trunks is undeniably more powerful as an Ascended or Ultra Super Saiyan.
  • Goku was confident that he could easily defeat Piccolo Buu, so that Buu can't possibly be more powerful than Kid Buu.
  • Gotenks? More powerful than Goku and Kid Buu? He couldn't even beat Super Buu.

Also, Fat Buu is not equal to Super Buu in any way, Super Buu is a more powerful version of Buu, with Fat Buu absorbed on top of that. He has the power of two Buus.

Broly » Does Broly have a SSJ3?

I'm amazed so many of you are saying Super Saiyan 3 Broly is canon. Broly isn't canon at all. It doesn't matter how many damn video games he's been in. He's a movie character, not a canon character.

The only video game that's considered canon, as far as I know, is the MMO game which is set waaay into the future.

Dragon Ball » Do you agree with this DBZ strength list?

@ozeol: Kid Trunks is strong for his age, but on his own he's not even as strong as Piccolo, and Future Trunks is much stronger than Piccolo. In fact, now that I think about it... Kid Trunks and Goten aren't even as strong as the Androids. They should be at the bottom of the list.

Dragon Ball » Do you agree with this DBZ strength list?

I don't usually bother with these kinds of threads, but what the hell I guess. Here's my take on the list in the first post:

  • Vegeto, Gogeta (Vegito is supposedly stronger, but I doubt there's a huge gap, they're essentially the same character)
  • Janemba (why the hell was Gogeta is the same tier? Gogeta DESTROYED Janemba with little effort)
  • Gohan Buu
  • Gotenks Buu
  • Gohan
  • Kid Buu, Goku SS3 (Kid Buu is a little stronger, Goku has to finish him off with a Spirit Bomb)
  • Piccolo Buu
  • Super Buu, Gotenks SS3
  • Fat Buu
  • Vegeta
  • Super Perfect Cell
  • Dabura
  • Future Trunks (what Future Trunks was doing below Piccolo, Goten and Kid Trunks is beyond me)
  • Piccolo
  • Android 16
  • Android 17, Android 18 (they're twins, there's nothing to indicate one's stronger than the other apart from 17 saying he was the strongest, but I'm pretty sure that was just him being arrogant. The other Android 17 in GT was more powerful but doesn't count, GT is non-canon)
  • Kid Trunks, Goten

Yep, I'm pretty happy with that.

Pok√©mon » Who is your favourite Pokemon?

Jolteon. Lightning/electricity is just my kind of element, plus Jolteon is spiky and looks cool as hell. After lightning come psychic and fire, which naturally means Mewtwo and Charizard, preferably a black Charizard. Then after that... Lugia is pretty boss. Yo.

Off-Topic » How Long Have You Been on Animevice?

Since it started, proud to be one of the longest-serving moderators on the site, and thankfully most of you haven't needed to be told off much which makes my life much easier. Keep up the good work guys.

General Discussion » Do DBZ Fans watch TFS Parody?

I think Dragon Ball Z Abridged is hilarious, especially the newer episodes, they've improved massively since they started. They also take forever to make each episode now, but they're worth the wait.

And of course Dragon Ball Z fans enjoy it, that's who the Abridged series is made for. People who aren't familiar with Dragon Ball Z won't understand half of the jokes in the first place. I doubt there are many people who are offended by the Abridged series, sure, it pokes fun at elements of Dragon Ball Z a lot, but it's a labour of love, not hate. People who find it offensive probably just don't get it.

General Discussion » WM is sold, Giantbomb and ComicVine splitting off.

We don't know exactly what being purchased means for Anime Vice just yet, any number of things could happen, we'll just have to wait and see how things go. When Rorie posts something up on Screened we'll probably get a good idea of what's going on with both sites. As a moderator on Screened and a moderator/guest writer here, I'd be just as sad as any of you to see either of them go, so lets just try to think positively guys.

Continue to post in the forums and on articles. Continue to use the sites. They live and die with the Whiskey Media community.

...that may have been over dramatic, but you get my point.

Dragon Ball » Can most of the movies be dismissed as non-canon?

The specials (to my knowledge) are all canon. The Trunks special, the Bardock special and by extension the recent sequel to the Bardock special. I think the other recent special with Vegeta's younger brother is considered canon too.

Slug, Cooler, Broly, the Super Androids and basically any other major movie is (again, to my knowledge) non-canon. Although Garlic Jnr. appeared in the anime, that was a filler arc and wasn't in the original manga.

Metal Sonic » Top 5 Sonic Villains (who's your #1 ?)

If we're talking about who the best villain is, to me that means the one who's actually difficult to beat, and lets face it... Eggman is pretty useless. So I picked Shadow, he's the one character who can really give Sonic a run for his money. Quite literally. It's kind of a cheap move just making an evil-twin character, but it does work.

Metal Sonic is a fairly close second.

@MrDirector786: We use names and terminology from English dubs/translations in the database because usually those are the terms most of us are familiar with. I added the other name as an alias though.

@Bigheart711: Changed it to Fighting Dirty and added Unfair Fighting as an alias, think that fits slightly better.

Tangy Cheese Doritos, probably my favourite flavour. It's hard to pick between that and Chilli Heatwave.
