Dragon Ball Super chapter 80 recently we have witnessed the battle between the strongest warriors in the universe, Gas and Granola. After Gas was unsealed, he was unable to control himself. He attacks Granola, Goku and even his allies like Macki and Oil. At this time, Monaito revealed that Bardock (Goku’s father) had defeated Gas in the past, which made him seem crazy and haunted the whole time.
This surprised Vegeta, who asked “How did Bardock defeat Gas?” and Monaito said he was not awake at the time to see what had happened. From Gas’s new form, many fans are curious as to how Bardock can defeat a frenzied warrior with that invincible power?
Here are the fan theories that are being discussed the most.
Bardock uses a move similar to his ultimate in Budokai 3
One of Bardock’s most devastating attacks in the Budokai series is the “Spirit of Saiyan” (Supiritto obu Saiyan). This is also the group’s final attack against Bardock, Tora, and Fasha in the Dragon Ball Heroes video game.
Here’s how it works: While performing Spirit of Saiyans, Bardock recalls the tragic deaths of his friends Tora, Fasha, Borgos, and Shugesh). Now that anger had taken over his entire body, Bardock charged at the enemy with the power of Oozaru without transforming. First with a punch to the gut, and then with a back kick that sends the opponent into the air. Bardock attacks on the ground with a powerful Ki Blast similar to Riot Javelin’s, before launching a massive ki orb that punches his opponent and deals massive damage.
During the battle with Gas, Bardock met Granolah’s mother and daughter. When he first encountered them, he immediately recalled Gine and the scene where she hugged Goku. At this point, his protective instincts kicked in and he decided to spare their mother and daughter. That’s why he pretended to kill Muezli, Monaito and Granolah in front of the Heeters. For Bardock, Muezli was a woman with the same maternal instincts as Gine, which moved him very much. This is not to say that Muezli is as important to Bardock as Gine, but his instincts to protect the Saiyans were inadvertently aroused when he watched Muezli die before his eyes. So when Elec pulled out a pistol and shot her, Bardock got really angry.
So, just like the “Spirit of Saiyan” attack in Budokai 3, he released his power when thinking about Muezli’s death. And just like in the game, he rushes towards his opponent with a huge ki and attacks the enemy with all his might. This is not quite the case with Broly, when the number of S-Cells increased so much that Broly’s head hurt and went crazy. As for Bardock, he still remains calm because “Spirit of Saiyan” contains the feelings of his teammates and loved ones.
Bardock transforms into Oozaru form
Imagine that during the match with Gas, Bardock backed into a corner and suddenly threw a Ki ball into the sky to create an artificial moon to transform into his Oozaru form (like Vegeta in Saiyan Saga ). Thanks to this, Bardock gains great strength, withstands attacks and deals a considerable amount of damage to Gas.
However, there is a small problem with this theory. If you look closely in the flashback of chapter 80, Bardock doesn’t have a tail. Some say that Toyotarou forgot to draw it, while others believe it was a deliberate act. They suspect that Gas cut off Bardock’s tail to prevent him from turning into a giant monkey. But that depends on when this particular flashback takes place.
Bardock uses a special move
In the 1990 movie Bardock: The Father of Goku, there is a detail about an enemy who has cast a curse on Bardock through which he can see the future. As in the Dragon Ball Z version, Bardock can see Frieza destroying the Saiyans. He even sees a much farther future, when his descendants will finally defeat Frieza. Based on this information, Bardock then took action to save his son by sending Goku to Earth before Planet Vegeta was destroyed.
Therefore, many people think that Bardock may have used this special move to confront Gas. With the ability to know what will happen in the future, Bardock may not be very strong, but he can tell in which direction Gas is moving. That way, Bardock can strategize to defeat Gas. So, even though Gas is the strongest character in the Heeter crew, he can hardly beat Bardock.
Having read this far, what do you think about these theories, which one do you agree with more? Let us know what you think so we can discuss it together!
