im gonna put into question some of the things that i find weird about PL. if you have an answer for these questions feel free to post it below!
1.-what's the minimum PL required to moon bust?
2.- what's the minimum PL required to planet bust?
3.- are those PL proportional to the size of the object? (earth is 50 times bigger, you would need 50 times more PL according to logic)
4.- going by a proportional scale: is Frieza a solar system buster? if you think so answer the next question, if not skip.
5.-why frieza couldnt one shot namek when the required power level to destroy earth is no more than 10,000?
6.- is namek 100 times bigger than earth? even if frieza held back according to his PL he should have blown it to nothing even with the 1% of his PL. explain this fallacy.
9.- why can krilin at a PL of 75,000 can cut frieza at a PL of 120,000,000?
10.- how does PL take into account special abilities like time stop, breathing in space,lifting strenght,speed,DC, and h2h skills?
11.- why should power levels be used instead of feats? (goku defeating frieza makes him a planet buster. but why should it make him multi solar system level?) elaborate.
1.) Probably around the 400ish range considering that was what piccolo was at and Roshi's Maximum Kamehameha probably multiplied his to around that level. 2.) To destroy it's core probably 18,000 given Vegeta's verbage to Goku about dodging his Galick Gun and saving himself but dooming the earth. As for annihilating it Frieza did it to a planet 10 times the size of earth at 530,000 so maybe around the 50,000 range. Give or take 10,000. Maybe. 3). Despite last comment probably not. 4.) No. He was only ever stated by the creator to be a casual planet buster. This is where fan calcs get out of hand. 5.) He clearly held back. No matter what that was what was stated and confirmed. 6.) Once again held back. 9.) Where's 7 and 8? Anyway special sharp attack I guess. 10.) For time stop, breathing in space, and h2h skills it doesn't. Nor does it really help in lifting strength either that much. Speed as long as they don't bulk up too much yes. DC or more like potency yes as well. 11.) Because they use the same power type. It really isn't that complicated a manga and I don't know why people like to pretend it is. This isn't a jab at you I'm just not sure why people do it to this particular manga.
