This is just a really random thought that has nothing to do with any card game, but I'm kind of growing fond of the Top Tier community so I thought I'd express it. So, just to establish where my thoughts are, I want to put out there that the part of the Dragon Ball community I was exposed to always worked on the theory that the fusion dance and potara earrings functioned by effectively adding the totals of their contemporaries' powers. So in effect, Goku's maximum + Vegeta's maximum = Vegito, while Gogeta was limited to Goku's weakened state to match Vegeta's base power level, and it just kind of hit me that this is almost definitely false. Now its a bit hard to really establish with Vegito, since his power could very well be the sum of his counterparts and he would still work within his narrative. Since our only real examples of potara are Fused Zamasu, Kibito Kai and Vegito, it's really hard to say how the earrings work since the former 2 were kind of amalgamations of their sums, so I'm not really going to touch on potara too heavily. If nothing else, Fused Zamasu (in the anime) appeared to be a lot stronger than just Goku Black with Zamasu's power and immortality added on, though I straight can't say that about the manga counterpart since he was matched by Mastered Super Saiyan Blue Goku. Anyway, this is all beside the point; What kind of shoves an iron pipe up this interpretations ass is Gotenks (and to a lesser extent, Gogeta). Just to be blunt, neither Goten or Trunks could turn Super Saiyan 2, and both were notably weak compared to other cast characters (each being significantly weaker than Android 18); yet Gotenks was able to achieve Super Saiyan 3 consistently and, by the movies, quite easily. Beyond that, his base level of Super Saiyan was such that he could survive an encounter with Majin Buu, something neither material could hope to achieve. Likewise, by the time Gogeta's fusion happens in Fusion Reborn, Goku and Vegeta have been exhausted by Janemba to the point of barely being able to fight but the fusion was easily one of the strongest things we'd seen. Enough so to utterly overwhelm an entity that Super Saiyan 3 Goku had been decimated by. Anyway, not really going anywhere with this thought. Just felt like putting it down somewhere.
