Oh, I thought this was ROF First Form Frieza. If this is Frieza saga Frieza, one punch is sufficient and there is some SERIOUS lowballing in this thread.
Given how well he does against Base Goku and that current Base Goku >>>>>>>> ROF First Form Frieza, I reckon he would win even without the tactics I mentioned. I don't know why people don't understand that this show doesn't give two sh-ts about their preconceptions regarding power levels. We're already seeing this in the tournament with the constant "Goku let his guard down" BS.

I see zero evidence that First Form ROF Frieza could blitz current plot-boosted Krillin and ample evidence that he can't. You are substituting speculation and head canon for actual facts.
And when we look at the scene you're talking about, the context makes it abundantly clear that Gohan stops holding back (in his base form albeit) given how much he improves the moment Krillin taunts him. Post whatever you clips you like. I've seen all of DBS. It won't make any difference.
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: First Form Frieza vs Krillin
He didn't think that in the beginning. They think Krillin can do good due to his tactic.
Gohan was holding back. You can't count fights against friends as a legit showing. Question, do you have a brother or sister? Asking this for a reason, not trying to be funny.
Goku was holding back. He stood in one spot the entire time and when he turned blue, they were having conversation and Krillin sat in one spot and thought for a bit. That is far and away from a serious fight. Please answer the question above.
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: First Form Frieza vs Krillin
Regardless, they think Krillin can do well against a Majin Buu level opponent, so I'd say it's pretty clear he's received a massive plot boost.
If you wanna go down this road of "You can't count fight against friends", then nothing from Goku vs Gohan counts as a legit showing on Gohan's part, which is silly. Nothing throughout Goku and Vegeta's time training counts, which is also silly. Nothing from GOhan vs Piccolo is of relevance, which is extremely silly, given the actual dialogue during that fight. This whole idea that "You can't count fights against friends" is headcanon on your part and contradicted by the actual show. These guys are master martial artists. Unless you're an assassin like Hit and have a fighting style that revolves around killing techniques, you're very capable of fighting at your best without intending to kill. The writers clearly intended to demonstrate Krillin got stronger with jobbing from Goku and Gohan, so I don't really see where all of the lowballing efforts are coming from.
In this case, we're talking about an opponent who current base Goku (and arguably the base Gohan Krillin fought) royally SH-TS on., so the winner seems clear to me. Especially if we're talking about an OP tactic like solar-flare/kiezan.
As to Goku vs Krillin, I think you might wanna go back and watch the fight. Krillin was using skills and experience to keep Goku off-balance and away, which is explicitly acknowledged. It's only when he goes Super-Saiyan that he just up and stands in the middle without interruption.

Ok, when I ask you this, I need a serious answer stilt. Let's say if youre Goku and your half bro was Krillin and you two were sparring with you knowing in your mind that you have a huge power advantage over him. Would you try to incinerate your brother while testing to see where he is at power wise?
On ignore list: Darksaint

Using trickery, yes.
Lol... look at Gohan and Goku fight and compare it to his battle against Krillin. Lol...in one fight we have him standing in one spot asking Krillin twice, what's next. In the other fight, lol, do I even need to explain? Also, Gohan asked Goku to go all out. Goku was still holding back. Again, do I need to post a showing of an all out Goku? Question, did Goku fight Krillin anywhere close to the way he fought Cell?
