I lied on the title! My true claim is that characters above **SSJ3** are FTL.

Alright, alright. I'm here to settle this petty argument.

I recall asking before how you can say powerlevels correlate with speed. The pro-DBZers insisted they were right without actual proof but childish speculation.

**But I can actually prove the relationship between power levels and speed have relationship WITH Math. With this, I also prove that SSJ2 Goku is FTL while SSJ Goku isn't.** This is a simple proof with no bullshit. Please take your time to read this.

When Goku first started out to cross snake-way, his power level was 334 without his weighted clothes. He crossed 1,000,000 km in 177 days. That means he was traveling at speed 235.404 km/hr.

When he finished training with King Kai, his power level was 9,000. He crossed 1,000,000 km in 2 days. He traveled at speed 20,833.33 km/hr.

Now = 334 : 235.404 km/hr to

9,000 : 20,833.33 km/hr

When you divide 9,000 by 334, the multiple is 26.9. If speed and power level have a linear correlation, their division should also yield the same 26.9. BUT IT DOESN'T! The division of the speed results in 88.5.

**This means that every power level increase by 1 increases speed by 2.42 km/hr!**

And we aren't even considering an EXPONENTIAL "r" relationship, which can mean even greater speeds. But let's focus on what we have now. Our "r" is still a constant 2.42.

We can now come up with this equation:

Speed in km/hr given power level = (x - 334)*2.42 given x = power level

SSJ Goku had a power level of 150,000,000 according to the Daizenshu. This means that, according to our equation (plug 150,000,000 into x), he had a speed of 362,999,191.72 km/hr. Speed of light is 1.07925285 × 10^9 km/hr. Goku is therefore slower than light by a lot.

-------------------EDIT----------------------------------

**However, if we take his later forms such as SSJ2/SSJ3 (SSJ has a x2 increase from SSJ1 and SSJ3 has a x4 increase from SSJ2 according to the ****Super Exciting Guide Story Volume), we are now dealing with an FTL SSJ3 Goku easily. At SSJ2, Goku's speed is still below the speed of light.**

BUT

**At SSJ3, his power level should be 150,000,000 x 8 = 12 x 10^8. His speed is now 2.903 x 10^9 km/hr. He is now faster than light speed!**
