    Speaking of Dragon Ball Z.... Here is a big question for a Theory. Exactly, how long is Snake Way? There are rumors in the anime and manga saying it's 1 million Kilometers, but that doesn't add up with Goku's speed in previous chapters/ episodes.

    Wait.. HOLD UP!!! Plant Vegeta also existed inside of a multi-star system, so your Namek arguement completely falls apart. AND FREEZA WAS IN BASE FORM. Other than Vegeta, we haven't seen Freeza blow up another planet, so you have no evidence as far as how difficult it would be for him to blow up a planet

    Whenever we see an image of Namek, we always see that it has a night side. The idea that the planet never has a night has been wrong since Dende first explained it.

    Based on that theory, it could be that they’re “speed talking” from that whole 5-minute battle. The example being, which you’ve overlooked, is the fight between Krillin and Jackie Chun (Master Roshi in disguise) in the 22nd World Tournament, who they not only fought faster than the audience can perceive, but can counter their incoming attacks snots and spits along with thinking of what to do next and play a game of rock-paper-scissors in the middle of that instant, which they re-enacted the fight for the audience to see what happened. Think of that one clip from the outside media like DC’s Young Justice, when Flash (Barry) and Impulse (Bart) was talking to each other back-to-back, they’re speaking so fast to where the fellow speedster Kid Flash (Wally) kept up with little bit of information after a normal joe without access to the Speed Force asked him what they were saying. Since both Goku and Frieza are not only more powerful than the previous characters I’ve mentioned, but they’re way faster than that. The combat speed between Krillin and Jackie Chun are faster than the eye can see, Goku and Frieza are moving faster than light, which you have mentioned. Pretty much to the point where a normal person wouldn’t notice since it’s beyond their five senses. There you have it.

    in dbz's defense the anime made all that filler because they were making the anime around the same time the manga was coming out so they had to add extra scenes to stretch it out so they don't catch up and have to wait for the next manga chapter. if you go and read the manga the 5 minutes seems more plausible.

  17. Graeme Tang

    The answer is actually even more simple: talking mid-fight in an anime stops time so the 35 minutes is void

    I mean five minutes to Freeza’s race could mean 2 and a half hours to humans. Just because they seem to use the same system as us doesn’t mean the measurements are the same. Like comparing solid mass to liquid mass.

    I´ve always thought Freezer only shoots ki blasts using his finger as a means of inspiring fear on his enemies, like saying "if I can throw so much energy at you with just one finger, imagine what I could manage to do using my whole hand". It added to his fear inspiring personality, at least for me

    Just for the sake of history: The production-side reason DBZ dragged so much was because the anime blew through the whole manga when the manga was still in progress. An ongoing monthly comic strip with a weekly anime schedule that the author was famous for not planning out stuffs, means you need to stretch a 20-something pages into roughly 80-84 minutes or so of animations every month, and that's definitely tough especially when sometimes that chapter was 100% punchy-punches. And they couldn't stop the anime either when that show was literally the hottest merchandise in history. You kinda have to appreciate the anime-production for able to come up with all those stuffs pretty much on constant sudden-death for years.

    For anyone wondering, the real reason is just plain and simple filler. In the manga, the planet blows up in a just a few chapters (Freeza says the "5 minutes" line in chapter 320, Goku kills him in chapter 327 and Namek blows up in 328, which should be roughly equivalent to 2 episodes. Still more than 5 minutes but way less than 9 episodes). The anime had caught up to the manga and so it had to pad time until there was more source material avaible. In fact, in DB Kai, the more or less "fillerless" version of DBZ, Freeza tries to blow Namek up in the middle of EP 49, and it actually does by the end of EP 53, so they basically cut 5 whole episodes of pure filling. Not saying the complete theory is bullshit, in fact I agree with most of it since 4 episodes is still more than 5 minutes!
