@LHWKnight: I believe Shenron said that he couldn't kill Vegeta in the sayain saga because Vegeta's power was higher than his creators. Shenron is weak. I don't understand your point? What's Shenron got to do with this?
@luthluth: ._. Does any of that say light speed? Or is this just another assumption, there's a huge difference between assuming and facts. I'm not saying that Toriko is light speed either But Goku aside from instant Transmission is not light speed, nor are his attack. I'll give it to you though if you can find a statement proven by a fact that DBZ is "speed of light".
@nishi99: See this is another idiocy within DBZ, they are Planet busters ect. But when in battle they never use planet busting attacks. I mean like Vegeta's Big Bang attack he fired at Cell he grazed the planet. No one in DBZ actually has destroyed planets in there battles. unlike say Hulk, Thor, Superman. Also if Toriko get's in close he can overpower Goku easily, I get what people say when "lifting doesn't equal punching power", But people casually ignore that Toriko has shown that his punches can break mountains and attacks that can hurt Country+ beasts. And with Pre-cognition I doubt that Goku is going to just breeze past this mainly because Toriko can foresee, dodge and counter-attack. DBZ characters aren't very good at that either, Goku will charge up a 100% Kamehameha and fires it will the enemy waits for him to charge up and doesn't dodge the attack.
That's due to plot. If they destroyed planets during their battles they would all die because the majority of them can't breathe in space. That's like saying Frieza's stronger than Cell because Frieza destroyed more planets than Cell did. DBZ has and always will be about powerscaling because they became too powerful even early Sayain Saga.
That works for the speed of light thing too. In DBZ as your PL increases so does you speed. There's a direct correlation, this was stated by Vegeta. Case in point, Frieza fired a beam that was so fast that no one but Vegeta could even see it. This is Frieza who was at this point far weaker than SSJ Goku yet at the same time many magnitudes faster than Piccolo who fired a beam into the moon and destroyed it almost instantly.
