pretty sure Yamcha was just exaggerating about Goku's speed.

Yamcha's too stupid to know any better. They were really fast in Dragon Ball though. When Krillin fought Master Roshi (Jackie Chun), the announcer had to stop the fight because no one could keep up with them. In a split second, they managed to charge at each other, attacking and dodging one anothers moves. Having enough time to think and even predict each others next attack. They even played a game of rock-paper-scissors and had a brief conversation.

Light Speed is probably Max for DBZ Characters...

Travel speed I'd say is about light speed, but their reaction and combat speeds are much higher. In their fight with Radditz Piccolo mentions how he dodged the beam cannon, which at the time was as fast as light. Yes it's hyperbole, but when it comes to fiction such as anime and comics, sometimes hyperbole is what you have to work with.

Have they been stated to be faster than light? A lot of times Japanese manga can't be taken seriously sense they joke around a lot. I have read manga where the characters are completely human but run hyper sonic speeds because it was funny.

@immortal777: doesn't really matter if its a joke or not, if u really think about it, it's all fictional no matter wat

DBZ never made sense, they can go too space one episode without a problem and the next one thay have a problem.

I'm sure some douche bags would say The Flash is slow in DBZ...

Trying to scale abilities in the DB universe is pointless.

Please don't.. this has been argued to death and back.

DBZ is inconstant and thus nigh impossible to scale

I don't know what disappointing is, but it sounds a lot like Yamcha.

they're massively hypersonic-sub relativistic. Bills Whis and SSJG Goku are the only ones MFTL.

Well, I doubt it. Considering the 'faster than lightening' thing, unless light, lightening both are slower in db.

But yes:
