goku is lightspeed or sub relativistic. not MFTL. i guess we can all agree to that. specially since goku could have reached his ship in 1 second no matter the distance. light goes at 300K kilometers per second.
I'm still waiting on how Midora survives speed blitz.
none of the attacks of cell could defeat midora right away. btw normal attacks would slip on molecular level. meaning fists are basically useless against midora.
precognition is also to be taken into account.
midora dodged lightspeed blasts while having his body disobeying his orders.
there is no possible way for cell to blitz midora.
btw midora's sheer durability triumphs over any atempt to blitz.
Perhaps Daz Bones? He was around that level when he appeared, although his durability might be above that. Don't know :P
daz seems too low for that guy. daz is building level granted his durability is above that.
i would pit him against starjun GT robo version.
goku did travel to the other side of the planet in seconds based on shonen jump anyway .This was released after the manga , its valid .
The entire battle with 100% freeza was only 2(few mins) mins long. the planet was blown up less than 5 mins.
by the time goku was finished with freeza he said the planet will blow soon. its assumed he took the quickest escape root
And gohan who isn't even 2nd form freezas level , carried piccolo back to the space ship and went on to bring bulma. gohan isn't even close to base gokus base power level .
its also worth mentioning that gohan was beat up state hence wasn't moving as fast as he was when his hidden potential was unlocked,(no ki aura )
the planet literally exploded right after king kai turned away for a moment.
he wouldn't have had the time to do reach his ship.
1.- quickest escape route? if everything is "seconds" away from him there is no "quickest" i know people always point towards "the other side of the planet" statement outside the manga which is that scan you mentioned but the actual statements and feats from goku contradict that horribly. we can take the other side of the world as an expression rather than an actual statement.
2.-there is no timeframe for that. and if it took minutes then its not surprising at all.
3.-i know you like goku but resorting to lies is not gonna help the debate. here is the complete scene right after goku took care of frieza
- notice how he went for frieza's ship because he previously admitted he wouldnt make it in time to his own
-then fiddles around for some time, he even looks for the control room
look at all the time it took YET goku knew it would take less for him to do that than going for his ship.
the scans continue, even more time for him
at this point i think its clear goku had around 2 minutes to get out of namek . this brings us to the scan you posted where "goku had just the blink of an eye to get out of namek"
goku had PLENTY of time to get out of there. he barely reached frieza's ship, much less his own ship.
in other words:
he had around 2 minutes but he came to the conclussion that that wouldnt be enough to reach his ship.
