Don't forget that GT is a filler, it wasn't created by the original creator, Akira Toriyama. There is a very high probability that is was overlooked. Also if I remember correctly, SSJ3 wasn't shown as tiresome in Dragon Ball GT.

According to this wiki pan never did have to go super saiyan mode. [...] basically it's because the creator of Dragonball, Akira Toriyama claims that Pan never had a reason or situation to turn super saiyan. Her debut is at the end of dragonball z, as a little kid, and since Dragonball GT is not based off actual manga, Toriyama only envisioned Pan as a ...

Dragonball GT was not made by fans. It was made by Toei Animation with involvement from Akira Toriyama. According to this wiki, his involvement is outlined as: Akira Toriyama is credited as author in the ending credits of Dragon Ball GT; he oversaw the series' production, this was the same process that was used during the production of the anime ...

In SSJ3 form, the energy output is huge, in contrast to the SSJ4 form. The proof is written in this article from the Dragon Ball Wiki. The reason behind that is not known, as far as I know. In Dragon Ball GT, Goku's child form caused him to have trouble using Super Saiyan 3. His small body could not handle the energy output of the transformation, and ...

Well, according to this Pan's trivia section, the in-real-world reason seems to be that Akira Toriyama couldn't figure out how to draw a female SSJ. One of the possible reasons, in the DB universe, is that Pan never really trained to become a more powerful warrior. The other kids, through the generations, managed to reach that level quite quickly yes, but ...

A lot can be said about the last episode. You could argue that Goku went to train with Shenlon, you could argue that he offered his own life for that last wish, you could argue that it was all an illusion, seeing Pan holding his shirt after he had supposedly left, you could argue that he became one with the Dragon Balls/Shenlon, you could argue that he'd ...

Dragon Ball GT actually is a direct sequel to Dragon Ball Z; it takes place several years after Dragon Ball Z ends. It was not based on a manga by Akira Toriyama. It was an original story created by the anime studio. As far as I know (I never finished watching it), it was completely compatible with the story of Dragon Ball Z. Recently, Toriyama worked with ...

Kami didn't create the Black Star Dragon Balls. The entity known as the Nameless Namekian did. This is from the Dragon Ball Wiki: The Black Star Dragon Balls, or Ultimate Dragon Balls, are a more powerful version of the main Dragon Balls, created by the Nameless Namekian (before Kami and King Piccolo split). So Dende not having to recreate them is ...

Dragon Ball GT was produced by Toei Animation, one of the anime companies used to produce Dragon Ball Z. Akira Toriyama did not write any of the episodes though, that's true. They're all fillers.

This is how I remember it: Goku leveled up to SSJ3 on the other dimension and never really planned to reveal it because he didn't want to show it on front of Vegeta. At this point he would have made up his mind if it comes to fighting Vegeta on the tournament he would resort to Mystic saiyan mode to deal with him. Turns out Vegeta ends up dead and Goku in ...

First off because Dragonball GT was created before Super or the 2 movies which the first 2 seasons are based from was even created. as such Super Saiyan God and the levels after that shown in Super weren't even conceived when Dragonball GT was written. this along with other contradictions in this answer by Torisuda does make Dragonball GT incompatible with ...

Pan has never done any hard training in the Dragon Ball series. Pan may have her father's (Gohan) saiyan blood in her body, but she is not a full blooded saiyan like her grandfather (Goku). In Dragon Ball MMO (Online) the DB online game (created by Akira Toriyama), states that female saiyans are able to transform into a super saiyan. In Dragon Ball GT ...

Budou (武道) is a Japanese term describing Japanese martial arts. Budou consists of the kanji "bu" (武, ぶ), meaning "war" or "martial," and dou (道, どう), meaning "path" or "way." The tournament is called the 天下一武道会, "Tenkaichi Budoukai," which can literally mean: "(Best) Martial Arts on Earth (Under the Sky) Tournament."

The reason for this is because Super Saiyan 3 form was to fully maximize the ki of the user. The Dragonball Wikia states : Where the third stage of Super Saiyan's purpose was 100% utilization of physical stamina, the purpose of the Super Saiyan 3 transformation is to increase the utilization of ki, and as a result, the transformation rapidly ...

Dragon Ball GT was produced by the same companies as Dragon Ball Z, so technically it can be considered a sequel. However, there is one 'but': this is more of an OVA than an adaption of the manga; in fact, Dragon Ball GT was never a manga. So in anime terms: yes, Dragon Ball GT is the official sequel, but not in manga terms.


4

Please can someone clarify if there is any other part after gt? (In continued format for gt story) There is a special that happens after Dragon Ball GT, Dragon Ball GT: A Hero's Legacy. This special was aired between the 41st and 42nd episode of Dragon Ball GT, but sequentially it takes place 100 years after the end of GT. You can read more about this ...

Broly wasn't a canon character and Super Saiyan 4 isn't a canon transformation, so the idea of Broly being a canon Super Saiyan 4 is kind of madness. Broly is a character from the movies, in which there is no hint that he or anyone else can become a Super Saiyan 4, and SS4 is from GT and there was no mention of Broly in GT. If he went SS4 in some game, then ...

It's because in gt goku was a kid & his body couldn't take the strain like his grown body did... So whenever he turned to ssj4 & & went back to his grown body form he was now accustomed and didn't burn energy as fast


2

Well, the Oozaru (Great Ape) form is portrayed to require no particular threshold of energy, as even the low class warrior infants are capable. Heck, even Gohan did it when Vegeta made the fake moon. And SSJ4 is definitely something that draws power from that hidden ability: from the tail and the hair draws in the power of the great ape Oozaru.


2

There are actually a lot of ideas about that, and one is that Goku spent a long time training in the heavens, where power is limitless and that is said to have greatly strengthened him. Vegeta on the other hand, never had that chance. As a note, Vegeta did reach Super Saiyajin 4 after gaining power from one of Bulma's machines, then he fused with Goku to ...

Goku did not become the dragon. Grandma Pan saw a glimpse of him watching the fight between Goku Jr. and Vegeta Jr. When Pan tried to reach out him, he was gone.


2

Goku was dead to begin with at the end of DB GT, and when asked if they should revive him back, he didn't let them do that. Instead, he feared that there are more dangerous and strong fighters in the world, and he needed to practice and therefore went with Shenron to practice and live a peaceful life for sometimes. He did mention he will come back when the ...

The Golden Great Ape transformation is the result of a Saiyan in the Great Ape form turning Super Saiyan. By looking at either a full moon or a full planetary body (sunlight reflected from a planet also generates Blutz Waves, as Goku used the "full Earth" to transform) the Saiyan can transform. Source.We know Kanba has the ability to turn Super Saiyan and ...

Dragonball Gt was not written by Akira Toriyama and as such is not considered to be a canon story. As far as Current Trunks is concerned he has no wife, since he is only 8 and we still have to see what will happen with him in the future.

No. The wish was to make Goku a child again. When he grows back into an adult, the wish will not be in effect anymore. The youth he gains would just be a side effect of the wish. The wording of a wish is very important, as can be seen when Shenron granted the wish to revive everyone on Namek killed by Frieza and his henchmen. That wish didn't revive the ...


1

I don't think there is an "official" answer to this question as technically GT is anime-based only (Toriyama did not make the whole story himself), but a fair guess would be that it is irrelevant - the seven dragons would appear as long as enough wishes were asked of from Shenron. According to the anime, the only important factor (other than the content of ...


1

It would take longer, but they would appear eventually. Humans would keep on wishing for stuff, adding to the negative energy stored in the balls. So I guess they could renew the balls from time to time, preventing the negative energy from building up, but where would the energy go and what would happen to the balls? The negative energy is still around, so I ...

Dende didn't have to recreate them because when created Piccolo and Kami were joined together, then they split which then would make them disappear until when they joined back together again during the cell saga henceforth bringing them back; but being forgotten about they were never used. The Black Star Dragon Balls would have been the first ones made on ...

He wore this even during the last episodes of dragon ball z when he went off to train with Uub so think it just continued from there.


1

No. At Goku finishes fighting, he says, "Shenlong's back sure is warm..." That means he was riding on Shenlong's back, not becoming Shenlong. Also, in History of Goku Jr (this is going too far), Goku's ghost appears. He is not a dragon. I suppose he went to train with the gods.
