By some feat of nature comics actually follow logic more than anime, even though comics feature characters, who can put an universe into a box and toss it into fire.
Dragonball power scales and power logic actually make me angry:
1. Planets in Dragonball are not always actual planets. During the Dragonball movie with Beerus, Beerus ate something spicey and then flew through a couple of "planets". Dragonball fans tried hyping that up as Beerus easily busting a couple of planets, even though these "planets" were slightly bigger than Beerus. Those planets weren't even mountains. They were big rocks. So the question is how big that tapped planet actually was.
Even further some other people tried again putting Beerus on a planetary scale, because he had almost busted King Kais planet, while attacking Goku. And King Kais planet is so god damn small, that I could jog around it in half a minute - less than half a minute, if I actually tried.
2. During Beerus' fight against Goku their attacks were causing shockwaves. Shockwaves, which were said to be able to destroy the entire universe or some stupid nonsense like that.
Now it wouldn't be nonsense, if we went with the basic idea of shockwaves traveling so far, that they can cause an insane amount of distraction... Basically like an AOE thunderclap from the Hulk.
But the problem is, that these shockwaves were getting stronger as they traveled further. (Spoiler: That's not how physics work) So at the point of the impact and their creation (Gokus fist clashing with Beerus' fist)... they were the least powerful. And all they did was create small tsunamis and cause a little bit of wind, which was noticed by the Earthlings. Nothing major though. Even though Goku and Beerus were really going at it.
And now in another scenario Beerus destroys half a planet with a tap? Yeah, I question the size of that planet.
So to rephrase Carvers question: Who is the weakest character, who can destroy half of a round rock (or mountain if we're generous) with a tap?
Considering how Thor was cracking planets and nearby moons during his fight against Gorr, I would say that some high heralds might be able to do it.
Karate Kid or an amped Iron Fist could pull it off too or Karnak as a very high end feat. Maybe Temugin too?
And yes, Superman could solo the entire Dragonball universe. Dragonball fighters have great durability against KI attacks, but as soon as it gets physical, they take a ton of damage. They need to amp their KI in order to withstand blunt force, but throughout Dragonball they were always easily affected by physical damage. Damage which comic book high heralds can easily dish out.
^ Get me some of whatever the hell this guy is on.
You realize that Beerus casually tanks and dishes out universe busting attacks in DBS, right? He destroyed two stars with a sneeze while he was asleep. Planet busting is nothing to Beerus, lmao. Even galaxy busting is insignificant to Beerus.
"Why is everybody so ****ing stupid?"- Kim Jong Il, Team America.
Saying Beerus cant destroy a planet is a joke. That is his job...
Also look at his fight with Champa. They were casually destroy one planet after the other. Saying these planets are not regular size is just idiotic. DBverse was shown to be the same size as any other universe.
Just because you dont like it doesnt mean it didnt happen.
Carv brought this on himself by making this stupid-arsed thread.
And would you agree Beerus didn't actually "Hit" the planet? You could see a wave of energy spread out at the tap. It doesn't matter how strong someone is physically, they ain't busting a planet just like that.
