Did Android 17 receive the single most plot shield in an arc or has someone been given worse?

    We all saw that Android 17 not only got a famous bullshit upgrade (like most characters), but he survived blowing himself up, because Shields?

    Has anyone came close to this level of bollocks before?

    I think Trunks comes close in the Black arc.

    combine all plot from 1st episode of dragon ball until episode 131 of super

    His zenkais were fucking ridiculous. Dude jump from like 20,000 to 180,000 to 3 million whereas the zenkais for vegeta were way less generous, not to mention goku transforming into a super saiyan despite being totally fucked up stamina wise. It was very ToP esque.

    Yes the guy went from being weaker than imperfect cell to ssjblue level because he was ranged the shit out of the park and survived his own self destruct. Now if only Toei could give some of that plot shield to my boi Piccolo :catippy

    Oooh, the 33x zenkai boost. Yeah, I still think it's bullshit and I refuse to believe it, largely because I don't buy Goku going from 90,000 to three million in one zenkai where he wasn't even hurt that bad, but Vegeta gets blasted through the chest and lays there bleeding out, and 'only' goes from roughly 350,000 to two million or whatnot.

    For the Super Saiyan part I disagree. The transformation was mentioned by Vegeta as far as back as the Saiyan arc and was built up throughout the Namek arc as something Goku was on the brink to unlocking, but missing one key ingredient. It ended up being pure rage. It's exactly like with SS2, it was Gohan's hidden power that he didn't know how to truly bring out, and Cell specifically pushed him to the point of bringing it out.

    His point wasnt that SSJ came out of nowhere, but that Goku was so gassed when he attained SSJ that it shouldnt have even mattered

    It magically healed him and restored all of his energy and stamina to the point he outlasted frieza who had barely even used any power at all prior to SSJ being a thing and was far less injured

    And we know that SSJ doesnt have any healing properties...So its a bit bullshit

    Albeit awesome and iconic

    Ultra Instinct has way less hype than SSJ or SSJ2. The build-up wasn't even there.

    Honestly. They just threw it at us and we were like "Oh."

    They could've done better to hint at it being Ultra Instinct rather than Goku just going "I'll go beyond my limits!!!!" - and then we hear nothing about that up until that special.

    So you mean all of Dragon Ball, if nothing else this is consistent even if fans are head set. And there is no such thing as stamina, Goku's power output surpassed the Android of infinite stamina when he learned to naturally stay in normal Ssj and match perfect cell, and grew even further once he attained Ssjb.

    Infinite stamina =/= endless amount of ki

    17 can stand on a rock and fire ki blasts all day without getting tired out , Goku can only do the same for a short amount of time but Goku’s blasts pack more of a punch

    Blue Goku and Red Goku never had a stamina problem. In red form it was even show that it could heal. In blue form he can easily dictate the output.


    It requires Goku very little time to regain stamina so little time is required and so large a stamina he can regain, make him exceed 17 infinite stamina by a large margin.

    He went from being base Toppo’s bitch to not having his head explode instantly from fighting Jiren. His plot shield is retarded no matter how you defend it.
