@eddz99: Raditz is not relativistic, nowhere close. Not to mention, its a different beam that Piccolo fired at the moon.
Its contradicted by the fact that Raditz was unable to dodge Gohan's headbutt, who should be slower than what Goku was on the snakeway.
One example of what happened far beyond the Raditz saga-
Goku blasts Vegeta with a KKx4 Kamehameha up to the sky.Yajirobe and Goku has a full slow conversation while having a bit of rest. In the end, Vegeta is only above the atmosphere.
If that was truly “lolrelativistic”, Vegeta would’ve entered into the space long time ago. And if it was “lightspeed”, then Vegeta would’ve been near the moon by now.
It's both special beam cannon so you can't really state it's a different beam.
Raditz was surprised by gohan's powerlevel that and it should have been slowmowed unless your saying that BoG goku is below lightspeed.
Vegeta was worn out, and you know dbz tends to have lots of plotholes, you can't exactly call that beam a plothole because it had too much detail when it happened,
