Jesus Christ what a badass.

The moral of the story for you is pic related
>Hey guys. I have a problem that's not directly related to DBZ games/anime, but I don't think /pol/ or /adv/ know enough about DBZ to help me out.
>I know that this is going to sound incredibly autistic, but I cannot function in social settings unless I imagine myself as a Dragon Ball character. No, I don't go around saying "I'm Goku, a Saiyan raised on earth!" or try to fly or anything. I just feel myself with the overall demeanor of a DBZ character. I can pass off as a normie well with this.
>I choose DBZ characters that already compliment my personality. My main 3 are Piccolo (When I'm feeling quiet but confident), Vegeta (When I'm feeling a bit smug/cocky) and Broly (When I'm feeling a bit edgy). I also have a rotating list of DBZ characters that I can use. I've done Bulma, Trunks, Gohan, Great Ape Bardock, Cell, Mr Satan, etc...
>But my problem is, I have a Christmas party with my co-workers tonight, and I'm not sure which DBZ character I should be. I want to be a bit more outgoing and talkative than usual, but not TOO much. I had a bad experience with Yamcha this spring, when I got a bit TOO confident, so I don't want to use him. I'd like to try a Dragon Ball GT character, but I'm not sure which once. I like Super 17, but I feel like he would make me come across as an autist. I was actually thinking about Gogeta, but not being canon hurts him a bit.
>Do you guys have any ideas for a DBZ character that would be sociable and confident, but not too much so?
So these people do exist.
Why can't the original show be posted even once in a single thread withouth someone bringing up how they don't like it and prefer the english dub.
Every time, withouth fail. It's nearly tradition by now.
Its the one show outside of Cowboy Bebop, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Hellsing to have an arguably equal dub. And since DBZ fans are too casual for those other shows
As impressive as that is.they focus all their dub related bitching on DPS
I think they still air Kai on nickelodeon, there's console games that come out every other year, and people that grew up with DBZ are old enough to have kids and nephews that they could introduce to the franchise. Factoring that all in, it's not much of a surprise.
More like Kid Buu.
Really though, anime saves lives and this kid is proof.
>My name is Andrew, but you can call me Vegeta
>I survived the 400 stings *fist pump*
Jesus, little dude has got my respect.
No? His entire claim to fame is contracting one of the shittiest strains of Ebola and surviving it.
Because Amerifats are inbred trash with no ntaste.
Someone didn't watch/read DB. Roshi tied Kuririn and Goku to a tree and they both got stung hundreds of times, which was part of their endurance training.
Even Vegeta could pull off a blurred flurry of punches to kill each bee as they flew at him
>and Broly (When I'm feeling a bit edgy)
>tfw also an Andrew
>tfw Vegetable is my favorite DBZ character
A personal fuck you for posting this.
>Be fat and lazy
>Buy the first 4 DB volumes
>All that training with kamesennin
>Channel Goku, start training while wearing weighted backpacks
Literally made me /fit/. How can other manga even compare?
>When a saiyan recovers from near death, their power goes up several times over
So why didn't Goku and Vegeta just almost kill each other time again and again during the three years they had to prep for the Androids?
How much power did goku gain in the month or two he was training in 100x grav flying to namek vs how many sensu beans can they grow in that same time so they wouldnt spend most of their time in the hospital?
Remember, vegeta does have krillin almost kill him so dende can heal him on namek, so its not like he didnt do the calculation when on earth with no (super) magic healing. It obviously wasnt worth it when you consider they wanted some sensu beans left for when the andriods got there just in case
>"Defeat" your rival twice
>Deny it constantly
>Always in his footsteps in terms of skill and power
Sure, 2-0, but Goku is still technically better. Sucks for Vegeta.
mfw the best lore for Goku vs Vegeta was in DBO where they
reach near the end of a Saiyan's prime so they fly to an uninhibited and fight it out one last time as the planet is destroyed from their sheer force of power
>How much power did goku gain in the month or two he was training in 100x grav flying to namek vs how many sensu beans can they grow in that same time so they wouldnt spend most of their time in the hospital?
I think he went from 9000 to 120000+
Yea so way more time effective than the power boost from almost getting killed and healing through normal means or waiting to grow a new sensu bean each time?
Well either they didnt think of this, or more likely they already do grow sensu beans in the hyperbolic time chamber? I mean its basically infinite right so there could be a garden in there somewhere and the beans actually take a gorjillion years to grow or there could be another/more htc on the lookout that goku etc dont know about
Trying to channel dumb fiction shit in real life is surprisingly common. It depends how you do it and if you ever bring it up I guess, but just the act of doing it doesn't seem autistic to me, fiction resonate with people. Or I could just be a sperg, I don't know.
I agree, the problem is when you start losing touch of reality and emulate every detail of it, including the ones that can't/shouldn't. Pic related
But yeah, stuff like "I started learning karate because I look up to Goku" is positive.
so by channeling vegeta he was able to take a 400X dose?
This thread was glorious.
...And sadly a bit relatable...
DBZ's one of those things that almost everybody grows up with at this point. 40 year olds cite it as their childhood, 30 year olds cite it as their childhood, 20 year olds cite it as their childhood and now you're having 11 year olds like the fag in OP's pic saying its their favourite cartoon.
He went from 8,000+ to 90,000, you could argue that Goku probably got a Zenkai boost from Vegeta which would make his power level after training in 100x gravity far less impressive.
The worst last minute power up would either be Goku after Ginyu or Vegeta by the end of Namek, that was some serious bullshit, Goku became like 35 times stronger and Vegeta to my memory became at least 10 times stronger, pretty sure he actually winded up much more powerful than that though.
What so like do you mean scale the numbers down with Frieza as a whole or make Goku still reach a power level of 3 million on Namek? in that case would there even be a point to Super Saiyan being a form rather than a title?
Have all power levels be scaled down by simply conveniently forgetting about Freeza's 1000 000 in his second form.
Say his first form is, say, 100 000 or so, second is 140 000, third is 180 000, fourth is 530 000 (the number he told Nail), except he can go from 70% to 100% in his "fifth" form so that'd make him 750 000 at 100%. Okay? So, say he fucks Vegeta and others with 250 000, faces Goku with 250 000-300 000 and destroys him with 375 000 (50% of his power).
In this, Goku would be around 300 000 in his normal form and, say, 900 000 in his SSJ form (x3 multiplier).
Of course that'd require Kaioken not being a total strength multiplier which is another inconsistency by itself, because if it really was Goku would get fucking decapitated when he doesn't have it on (it's a x10 multiplier after all)
Sorry for the autism, but that's the only way power levels could've stayed manageable in my opinion. Now they've been forgotten and it's probably for the best.
>gets stung 400 times and jobs to the bees
t. We're autistic power level fags and we don't care if we're the shit of the internet, ruining everything everywhere we go because we have higher powerlevels than everyone else.
sorry i'll just post some buu-satan otp from now on
>Loses the fight
>Ends up in hospital from jobbing so hard
Should have channeled Goku, then he might have actually won against the bees instead of losing pitifully.
I don't want to join in your stupid number wanking. I waste enough time on the internet, I don't want to waste more arguing about made up numbers measuring made up characters with autistic faggots.
I know DBZ is your power fantasy, but some of us actually did something with our lives so we don't need it, we just enjoy it for what it is: entertainment.
So yeah fuck you and your autistic friends
This is the first thing I saw when I read this.
There is an unusual amount of weebs in this state.
Why can't I meet any of them?
>When the trigger to play this song on the DBZ Tribute custom map hits.
You think you're gonna outrun a massive swarm of 400 angry africanized bees?
Africanized bees have been rated to chase for multiple miles. The kid probably did the smarter move by conserving his
kiand internalizing by thinking bout Vegeta.
Panini did an updated version of the game.
It's now dead, unfortunately.
FYI guys, this is a copy and paste. Not sure what the original is, but I don't think it's the DBZ one.
>Attacked by 400 bees
>I channel krillin
>Die 4 times on the way to the hospital
>EMTs go super Saiyan
>Turned into chocolate and eaten
Anyways, how do they know how many bees? 400? Who counted the bees?
Bees dies when they sting you, usually leaving stings inside of what they stung if they hit properly (if you are lucky, sting is locked in your clothes, not your body).
So likely counted the amount of how many times he were stung.
