@redshift_bacon: Piccolo’s blast reached the moon in a few seconds which is sub relativisitic,
No time frame given and the feat is never repeated until after the Namek arc. Easily an Outlier, considering it takes Minutes for later characters (Like 1st Form Frieza, 100% Frieza, ect.) to bust planets and Kamehameha waves are perceptible to Humans (100% Cell vs SSJ2 Gohan)
Goku flew halfway across Namek in an instant, when it took Krillin, a hypersonic character, multiple days to do so. Add a x50 onto that and that’s also easily multiple times light speed.
Actually, despite the Wild claims of the Guidebook, Goku only traveled a Short distance on Namek.
Goku healed in Frieza's Ship, Poranga's Visible(1)From the Ship (2), and Frieza's Sees Porunga on the Horizon.
Combine these Facts, and Goku could only have traveled at most 2 Horizon-Line distances from the Ship to the Fight location, at most ~40-50 Miles. Crossing that distance in A Second, and We'll actually give him Less than a Second (because it makes more sense) actually lines up with him being between roughly Mach 200 and Mach 500 in Base, although he probably isn't using his 100% Base Form power when he is traveling (Even though his friends are in Mortal danger)
Consider he is only at Half power, and you'd still see SSJ Goku's max in the Mach 50,000 range? Or so? About 5% Light Speed. Still Sub-Relative and very impressive, but nowhere near Lightspeed. Thats why I say, Goku probably doesn't reach Lightspeed (On Screen, MINUS Instant-Transmission obviously) until the Buu arc, when he is a SSJ2. He probably got about 10x more powerful between his fight with Freeza and Cell (Considering the ASSJ, USSJ, and MSSJ transformations/Forms/variations) and SSJ2 is a 2x multiplier, so yea. Thats my reasoning for that.
