I'm getting too old for this shit
It is an annoying trait of the battle forums or any other, regardless of the examples of the characters being brought against a DBZ character there is always a plethora of DBZ fans (not ripping on all fans, just the stubborn ones, and for the record I have seen every episode of DB, DBZ, and DBGT, as well as most of the movies and all of Kai so far) and the battles always come down to "Busters" so and so is a city buster, and so and so is a continent buster, and so and so is a planet buster, and occasionally so and so is a galaxy buster.... There is even the rare argument of Reality Busters..... But all of these are odd statements... Because most battles are put together with this in mind, and yet the DBZ character always wins....
Vash the Stampede is a Planet Buster.... he can destroy a planet with one shot... pit him against Raditz a city buster and see what happens.... And say he's slower and I can show examples of faster and stronger characters who end with the same fate
Robot Masters Triple Convoy can disperse a planet destroying energy attack. yet even with visual evidence, Nappa wins.
Many of us have gotten in these same circular arguments with DBZ die hards, and sometimes realize they are just cutting and pasting the same argument over and over again, so what do these "buster" attacks really mean? NOTHING, they are just examples of destructive power that are based on examples offered by a CARD GAME. That is the one thing about DBZ, the arguments really all center around stats offered by a CCG, and thus, all arguments and debates circle back to the game.
So what if certain series do not have this base power system.... the card game itself is not exactly the end all be all judge on what characters in the DBZ universe can and can not do and has been discredited within the anime itself.
And not to be condescending or anything, but do any of you actually know what a power level of 1,000 means beyond that it is higher then one of 999, and so on? What do each power point actually mean? and how can you truly be sure a character of a different series does not have a higher level? (kinda why I came up with the battle stat cards idea)
DBZ as a battle forum buster is what draws my ire this week. I enjoy the series, but hate the debates.
