Nope. That blast "really hurt" Freeza -- it didn't just singe his hand, lol.
...But you clearly didn't grasp the point behind that analogy, so I'll stop before your head starts hurting, lol.
Incessantly ignoring the fact that Cell was SUPPRESSED when he fought Goku(and SSJ Gohan) doesn't make it any less factual.
Yes, because Goku blasting/hurting a SUPPRESSED Cell has any bearing whatsoever on my previous statements regarding FULL POWER Cell, right? Stop embarrassing yourself, lol.
Please do point out where I said that Cell was "multiple leagues" above Goku?
Jesus, your butthurtery is not only blinding you, it's literally causing you to make shit up.
Okay..? Again, please point out to me where I said that a full power Cell could stomp Goku as easily as SSJ2 Gohan stomped Cell. STOP. MAKING. SHIT. UP.
Had Cell been using his full power from the onset, he could have beaten Goku soundly, yes... But his power certainly didn't need to double in order to do that.
Even if we use your arbitrary/made-up figure, this is still an arc where relatively minor differences in power equated to HUGE differences when they fought.
*To a SUPPRESSED Cell, perhaps.
The fact that you're still ignoring such a massive bit of context is hysterical. You're digging REALLY deep here, lol.
Okay, now I think you just proved who the 'idiot' is...
Cell was weakened after fighting Goku in his suppressed state. Despite this, Cell was STILL goading Goku into taking a senzu bean, because that was ONLY way Goku might have actually stood any sort of legit chance against him.
...But even if Goku were at 100% and Cell stayed in his weakened/depleted state, Goku's chances of beating him only increased "slightly":
...And not a damn person on the field disagreed with Cell there.
But hey, keep ignoring evidence and pretending like Goku stood a legit chance against FULL POWER Cell(even though he likely couldn't have even beat a SUPPRESSED/BATTLE-WORN/DEPLETED Cell)... It totally doesn't make you look like a complete buffoon or anything.
Yes, the level of butthurt from you and the pleb sock accounts like Mendax that agree with you, without inputting anything into the conversation.
1. How stupid are you, Galan? Are you suggesting that Frieza being "really hurt", by Goku singing his hand slightly is in any way comparable to Cell having the top HALF of his body vaporized by Goku? Frieza said he was "really hurt", because he wasn't used to having any pain inflicted on him, whatsoever, lol. I can post the scan- Frieza's injury was nothing compared to Cell being mostly vaporized.
Think about it- would you claim that burning your hand on a stove is comparable to being blown to bits by a grenade? No, lol. You'd still think burning your hand on a stove hurt though.
2. I admitted and acknowledged several times throughout my post- that Cell was holding back in his fight against Goku. That's not the point.
3. Cell was holding back a very small amount of his power against Goku. An amount of power so small that it couldn't bridge the gap between him and SSJ2 Gohan, when said bridge was actually larger than the one between Goku and himself. That has been my entire point this whole time. Cell holds the edge, but Goku is still a threat to him. This entire time- I've simply been pointing out that it's idiotic for you to assert that Goku was never a threat to him, when Goku certainly was- and indeed could have possibly even defeated him by using just one senzu bean.
4. Within the Cell saga, we did see that relatively small differences in power could amount to a large discrepancy in battle. That doesn't mean that Goku was never a threat to Cell. Hell, you could even argue that full power Super Vegeta was a threat to Perfect Cell. Despite Cell being MUCH stronger than Vegeta, Vegeta was nearly able to kill Cell with a fully powered Final Flash, and in fact would have done so if not for the fact that Cell realized this and dodged at the last moment.
Just like how Krillin nearly killed Nappa, despite being much weaker. Or Piccolo with Raditz, or how Tien managed to hold off semi-perfect Cell despite not even being within a comparable realm of power.
This isn't DBS we're talking about here- weaker characters can still put down or at least hurt/stall much stronger characters.
The ONLY assertion I'm making here is that your statement claiming that Goku was "never a threat" to Cell was erroneous.
