Unclassified answer

It has the same results as the Fusion Dance, the characters must simply wear the Potara Earings and look at each other to fuse. However, there's one "slight" downfall: the users stay fused forever. In the Buu saga Goku and Vegeta are able to defuse back to their original selves after entering Kid Buu because the laws of physics differ within Buu.

How there should be a way to defuse the Potara Fusion

To do it you should be able to take the earings off and defuse

No old kai and kibitokai are potara fusions and they took off theyre earrings AND NOTHING they have to be 'absorbed' by majin (like buu)Leftwiki 07:32, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Potara System in Budokai Tenkaichi?

This article should mention that the FIRST Budokai Tenkaichi actually introduced the Potara system, not Budokai Tenkaichi 2.

Vegito is realy stupid

vegito is realy stupid he can't beat super buu and super buu did make Vegito a Chocolate

LOLOL dude have you ever watched DBZ? Vegito was hurting buu so much that buu's immaculate "regeneration" could not keep up to the point of buu healing himself and not realizing that there was still a gaping hole in his chest. The only reason Vegito didn't kill buu immediately is because he wanted to save all of his children and piccolo.


"However, he may instead have been referring to the drawbacks of the fusion dance itself: a 30 minute time limit on the fusion, the possibility of performing the dance incorrectly resulting in a weaker form, and that the dance is restricted to beings of comparable size and power level (individuals performing the dance can suppress or raise their power level to match if necessary)."

If I remember correctly Elder Kaioshin said the effect was better, as in the result. Lowering your power to match the other person's, or messing up is part of the execution, not the final result, so is the bold part necessary? It seems like it was just put there to defend Gogeta. Elder Kaioshin only mentions the effect is greater, there is no mention of any time limit until after Kibito Kai is formed.

I think the fact that the effect only lasts 30 minutes, or the effect might be skinny/fat and powerless, or the effect may be a total failure due to incompatibility. is part of that. Potara effect is consistent and predictable. The fact that it's worth discussing is usually an indicator that the community believed his statement was ambiguous. -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 17:47, November 22, 2014 (UTC)

is this relevant to the trivia section?

Here it says that the Potara doesn't have inherent power, it's just Goku/Vegeta's power. Tapion13 Shakuran13' Talk' 02:05, January 12, 2015 (UTC)
