Baby Broly Survives Exploding Planet, Probably Faster Than Light

Although it’s not part of the manga source material, Broly in Dragon Ball Z movie 8 survives a planet exploding as a one day old baby. The infant creates a force field and flies away. Possibly he flew light years since he managed to get to another planet and survive.


Bukujutsu 40 Tons

It’s worth pointing out that it basically says the reason Goku’s weight training in Heaven was so effective was that he used Bukujutsu to float in midair as he used the weights, which made it much harder. It also says his image training/meditation was a means to raise his maximum ki, as muscle training has a limit. Toriyama mentioned there being limits to how much training your muscles could do and needing ki to overcome that limit in the book’s interview.

It’s unknown how much Goku can actually lift at this time.

Why Goku Couldn’t Teleport During Kid Buu Saga

What you’re seeing is the cosmos sphere of Dragon Ball Z.

The big sphere contains heaven, hell, the realms of the ruling gods, the galaxies of the universe, and the dimension of the demon kings and evil gods.

The small sphere is a special universe outside of the normal space time where the creator gods (supreme kais) live.

During the Buu saga Goku didn’t have enough time to pinpoint an energy signature because it was too hard because he was trying to get to the creator god’s universe/dimension. Even teleporting to other galaxies and distant planets requires Goku to concentrate for several seconds, maybe even a full minute or more. However, teleporting within the solar system and across one planet is very easy for Goku too do; and he CAN do so rapidly with no difficulty.

As you can see, luminal and superluminal beams are coming at Goku and he manages to teleport in time.

To see how fast beams are go to

Speed Of Dragon Ball Z Beams And Reflexes

In Dragon Ball Z, Piccolo, when he was a weakling and very slow compared to later characters, destroyed the moon with one beam. THE BEAM TOOK 2 SECONDS TO REACH THE MOON WHICH IS 240,000 MILES AWAY. THAT MEANS THE BEAM WAS  MORE THAN HALF AS FAST AS LIGHT AND LATER CHARACTERS ARE  AT LEAST SEVERAL THOUSAND TIMES FASTER.

The author of Dragon Ball Z explained in an interview that the moon is the same distance as in the real world. It came up when discussing the power pole, a magical extending rod and how far it could extend. Akira Toriyama (the author) said it could extend at least to the moon and stated the moon’s distance.

Image one shows the speed of Piccolo’s beam.

Image two shows that despite Piccolo’s beam speed, Raditz’s reflexes are faster than more than half the speed of light.

Image three shows the interview.

I should also mention that beam speed does vary, but it’s at max speed when the characters get serious about winning; and even max speed beams are dodged.
