If Jaco's an expendable member of the Galactic Patrol, how strong is its most powerful warrior?

    Although largely forgotten in the last 2/3s of the series, Jaco had decent showings in Super. Assuming Frieza hasn't already subjugated them by the ending (:awesome), who's the strongest Z Warrior a hypothetical Galactic Patrol elite fighter could tango with?

    Didn't he say that he's a super elite? I think he's aready one of the upper class patrollers.

    He also claimed that an adult Saiyan would make short work of him so someone of Raditz's caliber (1200 PL) could potentially waste the top members while Nappa ends them with two fingers.

    Not sure if you're joking around or not well-versed in Jaco, but him being a "Super-Elite" is false bravado and a lie. At least, I'm like 99% sure, lol. I didn't read the Jaco manga.

    Jaco said no one in the force stands a chance against an adult Saiyan, so even Raditz would be too much

    Both Jaco and the whole organization are fodder anyway. They'd only be formidable by OG DB standards.

    We know that power levels can fluctuate hugely in very short timespans -- warriors like Shisami emerged between the Namek and Resurrection F arcs -- but I guess it's wild speculation to say that a GP member could get similar gains. Oh well, Raditz solos I guess :blobsad

    Edit: From the wiki -- "Jaco says that the Galactic Patrol only has 38 members and they operate under the direct orders of the Galactic King, who is shown to be a Martian in a flashback that also shows a Namekian and a Tech-Tech alien in their ranks."

    Namekian :awesome

    The average Namekian had around 3000, and Nail was the last and strongest fighter type left on Namek.
    Was the Namekian in the flashback a fighter type?

    It will be interesting to see how much of their power lies within technology and how much of it is martial mastery.

    Wasn't the Jaco manga years before the series started? I don't think we should use any of those statements now and the patrol is about to get a huge buff considering the new character that just got introduced.

    That's the whole point of my bumping this thread -- we're getting more galactic patrol lore in this next manga arc and it seems their true elites can at least catch Goku and Vegeta off-guard. I'm curious as to how powerful that guy actually is, though, and how much of it is actual battle power vs. technology.

    Tecnology of Patrol is good.





    But powerlevel Patrol is Trash,Meerus power probaly is 3000.

    Meerus Speed>>Gotenks Speed ?



    In my opnion no,Freeza scary Trash Patrol.

    Goku and Vegeta Toyotaro base is soo weak.

    Don't forget that manga Goku and Vegeta are still within the Buu saga tier range outside of their SSG and SSB forms. It's still impressive for the Galactic mooks, but if this were anime Goku and Vegeta that he caught off guard then that would be something else.

    Anyway, it's been decades since Jaco mentioned an adult Saiyan would shit on the Patrol. They had to have found some strong people to join in the meantime.

    They aren't that weak anymore. Base Goku was able to withstand the roar from the U10 GoD while Shin was completely paralyzed. They've gotten much stronger after their 3 years of training in the RoSaT, as well as the DBS arcs.

    In the Boo arc, Shin was comparable/stronger to/than the Base Saiyans.
    In BoG, Beerus claimed Base Goku couldn't beat Freeza

    In the ToP arc, Base Goku is clearly way more powerful than Shin
    We also have Base Goku taking a blast from SSB Vegeta early in the Champa arc.

    Given the BS ways "being caught off guard" works in this series, I could see Merus indeed having a power level around Nappa's. In that case, these U7 guns are pretty hax.

    In regards to Shin -- does he communicate with the Galactic Patrol? Shin's introduction in DBZ gave me the impression that he didn't typically involve himself with the affairs of mortals directly. And yet, the GP has been shown to know about the following:

    -Frieza and the state of U7
    -The origins of Fat Buu and that he absorbed the Grand Kaio
    -Hit's time-skip ability

    They do have access to Zuno. Perhaps he will return to relevance.

    I like to think that the Galactic Patrol as a whole is still weaker than a Saibamen

    Actually even worse, Beets is an adult Saiyan and he’s less than 920

    23rd BT Goku Kamehameha > Merus :blobaww

    You should. Jaco was actually awesome there. RoF and DBS turned him into a joke

    This is a very important distinction to make. Getting the jump on manga Goku/Vegeta is an entirely different achievement from doing the same to their anime counterparts. They are at least, somewhere around their Buu arc tier in the manga, which obviously isn't the case in the anime.

    Another good point. The time of the statements is something that needs to be taken into consideration.
    If they really did surpass Kaioshin in Base, it is a considerable jump from his Buu arc self. (although probably in the same "tier") Since Kaioshin>>>Freeza and in the BoG arc Freeza>Base Goku.

    How do you figure exactly? Do we get a statement about him being weaker than baby Broly?

    Do you all think that that scene's going to be skipped entirely if/when this arc gets an anime adaptation? I think Merus is being undersold here -- the whole point was to show that he's unexpectedly competent for a Galactic Patrol member versus what we've come to expect. I'm not saying he's gonna be trading hands with the saiyans, but I could see him being placed around Piccolo level when he has his full assortment of Galactic Patrol gear on. Assuming he's not secretly evil, I'm thinking he'll play a Mai-ish support role in the arc.

    When they read Broly’s power at 920, Beets said it was higher than his own
