Our DBZ Geeks answer your questions
Have you ever pondered some of the mysteries of DBZ? Wondered about something that you just couldn't figure out? Well, we have a few members here who pride themselves on their random Dragonball Z knowledge.... our very own "DBZ Geek Squad" so to speak. So we thought it would be fun to pick their brains for whatever DBZ Wisdom they might have. Is Sayian hair always the same? Can any Saiyan go Super Saiyan 3? Why is Kid Buu stronger than the other Buu forms? Ask any question about Dragon Ball Z (continuity, things that confused you, or just simple "what if's) and it will be answered by a Sensei from DBZD.
If you have a question you'd like to ask of our DBZ Geeks here,

I believe, like you guys, that it was never mentioned. And I think that's intentional, too. It'd be like Toriyama's sense of humor to never mention her name. Heck, she's ditzy enough, I wouldn't be surprised if she just forgot it! Rofl =P
Yes, when he unlocked Gohan's inner ability, he did so during Gohan's normal state, and it was when he was most powerful. It is the byproduct of his half-blood upbringing, the power of the Saiyan, with the will and spirit of the human. It was more powerful than his Super Saiyan form.Question:
(Mozeta) In Dragonball the moon was destroyed. In DBZ the moon was destroyed. When Gohan saw the fake moon from the Saiyan space pod he transformed into Oozaru but Vegeta said that they transform from waves that reflect off the full moon. The fake moon Gohan saw was just a hologram (or whatever it's called) so how would it reflect the blutz waves?
"Moonlight is only sunlight reflected, but only when reflected does it contain green-spectrum radiation. when the moon is full, that radiation exceeds 17million zeno units per second. And when WE absorb that full amount through our eyes, the sayain reaction is set off in a certain gland in our tail, and our transformation begins. There are many moons around many planets in this galazy, but no matter their size, their green radiation will not exceed 17million zps without the citcular reflective space of a full moon. However, the greatest Saiyans can compress the planet's atmosphere with a power ball- to create a small artificial moon that reflects 17million zeno!"
And that is from the mouth of Vegeta! so it HAS to be true! lol
(Mozeta)The fake moon I'm talking about is the one from Goku's space pod when Gohan and Picolo were training.
Do you mean BEFORE the Saiyans came? Because that was a real moon, it was just DBZ continuity. But I still think it could be argued that the radiation was there, even if it was artificial...because Gohan transforms TWICE: once when he glimpses the REAL moon (during his six month solitude period) and again at Vegeta's fake moon during their battle Those are the only times...unless i am SEVERELY mistaken.
Actually, when Gohan transforms while being trained by Piccolo, that was a Hologram of sorts coming from "The Space Pod Goku came In". (Which, I'm sure most of us realize is impossible) Or at least, I know one time while they were training, that's what happened. He tried to blow up the Moon, but since that wasn't really the Moon, it didn't work, and he destroyed the Space Pod that randomly displayed it.
My guess is it was really emitting Blutz Waves, like Vegeta's false Moon. Except this one was from a machine, probably installed into most Saiyan Space Pods.
Saiyan Hyper Evolution, in short, is like the ability to have your body "evolve" to better adapt to greater amounts of power. This gives the Saiyans the ability to grow and change during the course of 1 lifetime more than the amount many races would change in thousands of years!
So, knowing that, Goku's body in the Saiyan Saga, though very powerful for the times, had strict physical limitations. But, the more and more he pushed those limits, the more his muscles learned to work with it, and "Evolved" into a form where he can handle much more energy flowing through him.
Super Saiyans in general, are by my theories, a sort of Super-Powered
version of normal Hyper Evolution. Channeling the Adrenaline from an unbearable
rage, the Hyper Evolution kicks into overdrive, and actually can change
their physical appearance! This change, although among the most drastic,
is temporary. But again, with practice, they can learn to re-attain that
form and even, in very rare cases, manage to stay in it for extended amounts
of time! The only example of staying Super Saiyan for weeks at a time
is Goku and Gohan after training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, where
they would eat, sleep, and go about all their activities in their Super
For those who need further dumbing down (like i did, ill admit) think of it in terms of bodybuilding...the more you weight train, the larger and more proficient your muscles become! Same idea apparently!
But, in the finale of the Kid Buu Saga, and the true final fight of Dragon Ball Z, Goku needed much more than that, so he actually asked the people themselves to consciously give him a large portion of their energy. Think about it, of it usually takes one one hundredth the energy from, let's say, 5 Billion people on Earth, that's quite a lot, but if he asks them all to give, say, half of their living energy, that's an unbelievable differance! And that, is why that Spirit Bomb was far stronger than any other used in DBZ.
Oh and dont forget, on Namek, he was also taking energy from planets AROUND Namek as well, so it was bigger...and he had a much higher proficiency of the spirit bomb by the time Buu came around.
The dragon balls can only wish back people if they have been dead for less than a year (explained in the Cell and Buu saga I believe).
It was mentioned early on in the Anime that you cannot be wished back
to life by the Dragon Balls if you have been Dead for over 2 years. This
can easily explain why Bardock, or any other Saiyan was never brought
Back. Mozeta's mention about Baby bringing back "Planet Plant"
(Planet Vegeta before the Saiyans overthrew the Tuffles, for those who
don't know), true, he wished the planet back, but did you see any Saiyans
or Tuffles come back with it? All that was restored was the Planet, without
any of it's inhabitants.
