With the Tournament of Power going on it seems the Dragon Ball Community is split on what their focused on. Some are focused on action, some on story, some on the rules and if their really being followed., No matter where you fall I think we can all agree that this weeks 2 part episode was AMAZING!!
Having said that, was their cheating involved, and does that mean that anything goes as long as the outcome pleases the Zeno’s? Two things in this weeks 2 part episode caught my eye, which it could or could not be considered cheating.. So let’s talk about if some fighters are unknowingly cheating!
The first example I want to talk about is Ribrianne of Universe 2. More importantly when she was having her battle with Goku. It seemed Goku had her on the ropes and backed in to a corner, and out of nowhere the God of Destruction Heles and Ribrianne’s partners who share the same transformation, Kakunsa and Rosu start holding up these sticks..
Now at first I thought they were like cheer leading accessories in order to cheer someone on then I took another look at them. They didn’t start off glowing! These sticks started off pale, then as they are cheering for Ribrianne they start to glow the same color as Ribrianne’s ki! Could they be sending Ribrianne ki and energy? That could explain the sudden transformation that she has neglected to use till then..
Next is Goku and preparing the Genki-Dama or known as the Spirit Bomb! I’m not saying the remaining participants giving Goku energy could be considered cheating, but the fact that Krillin, Tien and Roshi gave him energy when they have been eliminated. We have seen and heard that there is NO outside interference or help, so would Krillin, Tien and Roshi helping Goku gain energy for the Spirit Bomb be considered cheating?
It’s hard to say.. On one side it’s help from the outside from members who have been eliminated. Energy Goku wouldn’t of gotten if Krillin, Tien and Roshi wasn’t there to give him energy. Having said that, does that fully go against the rule “no outside help” when Goku didn’t receive the energy directly, nor did it heal or replenish him..
What are your thoughts? Do you think these 2 instances were cheating? Can you differ one from the other? Let’s keep the conversation going by leaving your thoughts and opinions in the comments down below! As always, thanks for joining the conversation!
