Battles » Broly vs Cell vs Bojack vs Dabura

@ImDictatorBowDown: Recall that the fight depleted enough of Cell's ki reserves where Goku gave him a Senzu Bean before fighting Gohan so he could be at full strength. I wouldn't necessarily say Cell was holding back in his fight with Goku.

@BloodSprinkles: Goku was weakened from his fight with Perfect Cell and never bothered eating a Senzu Bean after the fight which was why he was getting creamed. Trunks, Piccolo and Vegeta were strong enough where they could fend off their attacks, but not enough to get an advantage on them either. In comparison against Broly, all four were getting creamed without being able to hold up any kind of defense against the LSSJ.

@DBZ_universe: Kakuna and Metapod retain the moves of their previous forms.

Pokémon » Metapod vs. Kakuna

@DBZ_universe: This battle involves the Gen 1 versions of both.

Factoring that in, would have to side with Metapod. Poison Shot has lower damage output compared to Metapod's Tackle (15 Power compared to Tackle's 50), even with the chance to inflict Poison status with Poison Shot. Combine that with Metapod's slightly higher HP and Defense stats (303 HP and 208 Defense versus Kakuna's 293 HP and 198 Defense), and Metapod's more likely to win in most scenarios.

PC was suppressed against Goku and still had the upper hand.

Explain where he was supposedly suppressed. FPSSJ Goku and Cell were in a stalemate with one another throughout their match where neither one could get the upper hand on one another. It was equal as such where Goku forfeited their match because he knew either their ensuing battle would destroy the Earth or they would both kill each other at once due to their equal footing with one another.

Battles » Broly vs Cell vs Bojack vs Dabura

A toss-up between SPC and Broly. Dabura and Bojack are comparable in power to Cell's Perfect form and could be easily dealt with by the two stronger foes. Willing to bet that LSSJ Broly in the eighth movie is comparable in power to SSJ2 Gohan during the Cell battle with his casual mopping of two FPSSJs, two ASSJs and a Super Namekian.

General Discussion » Best Anime/ Manga Teams/ Organizations Voting Tourney Nominations

@taichokage: Only in the case of an overly large faction like a country's military. The Band of the Hawk only have a small number of characters focused on, thus it wouldn't be an issue to include them.

Also, votes accepted.

General Discussion » Best Anime/ Manga Teams/ Organizations Voting Tourney Nominations

Since a week's past for nominations, I guess I'll enter in my personal list of ten teams to nominate...

  • Gekkostate (Eureka 7)
  • Section 9 (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex)
  • Lagoon Company (Black Lagoon)
  • Game Club (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
  • Beck (Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad)
  • NERV (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
  • Social Welfare Agency (Gunslinger Girl)
  • Millennium Organization (Hellsing)
  • Band of the Hawk (Berserk)
  • Oniwabanshu (Rurouni Kenshin)

That'll do it. I can likely think up of many more. But I don't want to monopolize the rest of the entrant slots for this tournament.

Dragon Ball » Does power levels really matter?

This has been asked several times before. Just pull up one thread as an example of one. Next time, use the search option to make sure stuff like this hasn't been made prior.

Since this is a repeat topic, I'm locking this thread up.

@CerusSerenade: Said omnipotence is questionable when she was injured prior and has a weakness.

@CerusSerenade: Poor comparison. Since when is Featherine omnipotent and when could Living Tribunal be physically harmed and equally matched against someone as Bernkastel did against Battler?

Battles » Bernkastel vs Amatsu-Mikaboshi (Marvel)

Dlanor's red key negated the concepts of evasion, resistance, stamina, and defense. What makes you think Bernkastel can't?

Since when does the Red Key negate stamina?

The Red Key - A weapon for emergencies used by official Inquisitors of Heresy belonging to Eiserne Jungfrau. Dlanor's primary weapon. Unlike a normal weapon, whose purpose is to cause physical damage, this special tool is known as a conceptual weapon, and it is used to deny the existence of concepts.

Regardless of whether the target is physical, mental or conceptual, it is impossible to use any defensive concept, such as physical barriers, mental isolation, and conceptual inheritance, to defend against this weapon. Because the concepts themselves are denied, even the concept of resisting an attack does not exist, and it is impossible for the target to endure regardless of their stamina. Furthermore, all supernatural methods of buying time, such as teleportation, time reversal, revivals, and inheritance are impossible. Because denials of concepts conform to verdict procedures dictated by the Great Court, all future concepts that disobey them will be denied immediately. In addition, when the Red Key forms a complete Barrier, all concepts of evasion cannot be successful.

Defense is Impossible, evasion is impossible, buying time is impossible. The ultimate conceptual weapon is the embodiment of these three impossibilities.

The weapon's purpose negates all probable defensive measures that could be surmised in reaction to the weapon's attack, not negating any connection a being has to any sort of existential concept if they are an abstract being, high-level reality warper or omnipotent/ nigh-omnipotent being. I've argued this before when mention of the weapon's properties was trying to be applied to another abstract being.

When were Galactus heralds multiversal capable of making more multiversals?

I only said that the means that the role that Bernkastel was made from Featherine is of a similar one to Galactus with Silver Surfer and his Heralds. Is she more powerful than the Heralds? More ridiculously so. Does this make her an abstract? Unless she represents some sort of existential concept or phenomena, I'd have to say this idea is nothing but hot air.

@CerusSerenade: That would make Bernkastel something similar to Galactus' Heralds, not an abstract.

Killing Mikaboshi would require Bernkastel to completely wipe out the concepts of chaos and void from existence, which are natural existential concepts. I doubt she has that kind of power to do as such.

@CerusSerenade: Abstract as in representing some sort of natural phenomena or force in existence like space, time, chaos, fear, love, etc...

Just being the darker side of a character's psyche given physical form doesn't make one an abstract. Otherwise, I could get away with crazy notions such as Evil Ryu, Hollow Ichigo or Kenshin's Battousai persona being abstract beings just because they are the darkest aspects of a character's persona given life.

@CerusSerenade: Apparently, we seem to have different ideas on what is defined as an abstract being.

An abstract being is an entity that is the embodiment of a concept, such as love, hate, time, power, etc. Most abstract beings cannot be destroyed or killed unless the concept they embody is completely removed from existence. This makes abstract beings incredibly hard to kill, sometimes considered second only to omnipotent beings. Conversely, if an abstract is more easily destroyed, this usually results in the destruction of the concept they embody.

Abstract beings usually have some sort of cosmic powers, almost always relating to the concept they embody

@CerusSerenade: Are the witches abstract beings? Amaboshi is a living personification of chaos and void. I don't recall the witches or those at their level being as such.
