I do not know a lot about dragon ball Z, but when someone screams "I NEED MORE POWER!" changes clothes, has a trippy splash panel with their new power, grows ridiculously long hair (that's the real clincher for me), gains access to thoroughly unreasonable amounts of raw power, and goes around shooting pink energy all over the globe, There's something going on.

Is Rich subtly poking fun at DBZ? (Everyone does.)

Is he paying some bizarre homage to it? (If so, I'm scared for him.)

Or is it just a coincidence? (The most likely answer. But to me, it seems like a pretty big one.)

I'm going for coincidence. He already mentioned DBZ once, anyway.

Rich is many things, but subtle doesn't seem to be one of them. (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0485.html) :smallwink:

What is V's caster level? It's over 9000!

It's probably a coincidence in this case.

Goku shoots BLUE energy all over the globe. :smallbiggrin:

You're thinking of this guy. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=424ZLBBR9LA)

:smalleek:

Now that's just scarily similar to what V just did.

The evidence is piling up...

WOW. I can't believe I never made the reference.:smalleek:

It's just coincidental.

Now if this happened:

Oracle (or someone who really likes the dragons and somehow knew of this): I will wish you all back.

(Later, OotS is at some rezz shrine thingy)
Haley: Wish back to life all the things evil V killed.
(Commence rezzing of all the things Darth 'Ssuvie killed)

Well, V did do a sort of fusion to get more powerful (although, no dance was involved).

Indeed it is.

Modern day wizards and sorcerers are heavily inspired by Dragonball Z anyway, which isn't a necessarily bad thing, as long as you remember to let the monks do the brawling and the wizards do the flying around and fire energy beams all over.

Heck, D&D would be even more fun if counter-spelling worked like beam-battles in DBZ. :P

I think you may have gotten that backward, actually.

Difficult to know with the Japanese. Regardless, them influencing eachother isn't a bad thing.

Though DBZ influencing monks is definitely weirding me out. The Ki-beam feat in Complete Arcane really made me feel queezy.

Waitaminnit... Roy has been training with a secret martial arts master in Celestia! He's been learning from his grandfather!

...SO! Durkon and Haley need to start looking for the seven magical spheres, which when brought together, probably grant a free casting of Wish...
