For one this is Goku, he doesn't stop training for anything besides food.I seriously doubt he would randomly be able to control SSJ without training whilst in it.Its been a few years after Frieza (like 3?) Goku wouldn't stop training, Goku is someone bent into training. Thats what he was born for.And didn't Goku state something about not going all out in the Viz Manga? I forget if it was against Frieza or Trunks because I haven't kept up with DBZ lately.
I think they were equals at the time. Goku would be stronger because of Instant Transmission. That technique gives Goku a upper hand in most of his battles.
That's true. A lot of time did pass since the destruction of Planet Namek and the return of Goku. And I guess you could assume that Goku trained based off of his character. So Goku got a ton stronger since the last fight with Freeza...but I'm wondering now...is that increase in power still enough to take on Trunks? Yes, technique can also be accounted for...so I guess it looks as though Goku could have won.
Trunks was probably stronger than Goku was on Namek.But Goku was injured following his fight with Freeza, and would've gained strength upon recovering.Also, the anime (if memory serves) says Goku was gone 2 years, but the manga says one year.Plus, Trunks was fighting at full power when Goku blocked him. He may not have been trying his hardest, but I'm pretty sure he said he wasn't holding back. Of course, that could be something I simply misinterpreted.Trunks himself was impressed enough to believe Goku could change the future. Then again, by that point, Trunks had been through a lot of difficult battles, and had much more experience with being a Super-Saiyajin, but he's also a little less talented naturally in combat.I'd say Trunks may have been a little stronger (not 100% sure of that, and I doubt it was that large of a gap), but Goku's experience, natural talent for fighting, techniques, and sheer enjoyment of battle would probably give him the overall advantage.Still, that's a thinker, huh?
It's hard to say...In the anime it depicts him as not having Ki flowing through it, it seems, but in the manga he definitely had the aura around it when he slashed at Goku...although when it shows Goku blocking it with his finger, the aura is gone...Maybe it was just one of those times where Toriyama wasn't paying attention. XDLike I said, this one is a thinker. I still stand by my overall analysis though.Also, a little off-topic, but do you think Goku has to be extra-careful if he picks his nose while SSJ? Sorry, I have no idea where that thought came from. : /
another dumb thread goku wins.....trunks not even on vegetas level.....
