Frieza's survival by the canon sources is ambiguous.
- ambiguous ? he was shout half dead on nemmek . the explosion exceeded far grater than the planets original size itself .The last thing we see on pannel is freezas near death on nemmek ,there is no proof that says he escaped the explosion .
Androids never took planet busting attacks and 19, Future 17 and 18 died in attacks of far smaller scale, Cell woulda died to one had Vegeta been more accurate and it still still only came back due to his regeneration,
- 18 's armor was stronger than the sword that sliced meta Freeza into bits. The same freeza who tired to destroy earth at point blank. 17 is 18's twin i.e has the same durability & 16 is stronger than them both. Cell took vegetas most powerful attack ,a attack he reduced its potential in the last second. A attack that was easy planet+.
In fact the same thing happened when goku shot cell with his kamahamaha.
the fact that Cell is made up of the same DNA as Freeza should be more than enough proof of his durability. If we ignore this then i question heracles regen , we haven't seen his regenerating .
Buu vaporized everyone with a planet+ attack and he himself came back through regeneration from a few surviving bits. Vegeta is taking on essentially a far bigger version of Cell in every way that isn't an arrogant fool and isn't gonna humor Vegeta's own arrogance.
Future 17 and 18 died in attacks of far smaller scale,
Oh you mean these "moon-level" ki blasts from a blood-lusted Vegeta that was trying his hardest to kill Cell? Hardly
since when did smaller ki blast mean weaker blasts. AOE has never been potential .we see this from the starting stages of dragon ball ,
Roshi's mountain bust feat, Roshis's moon bust feat, King Piccolo city level feat , Radditz easy multi mountain busting feat ,Piccolo is Moon destruction feat , Nappa was easy city leveling feat etc.
AOE don't show the attacks potential ,
this http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=0jLrecR9FcA isn't even block level , vegeta was spamming island level blasts on Nemmek .Kamikolo used a city level bust on imperfect cell yet a 10000 time weaker King piccolo could do that with little effort .
Berus took out all the z fighters with chopsticks that doesn't mean their durability is lesser than that of a chopstick
This post actually makes a lot of sense.
Either way there's some good debating going on this thread.
