Some people think these three are the same; I personally do not. Wanna know what other people think about this.

They are the same concept.. different names.
Just like prana, chi, qi, mana, life force energy, source, and many other names that cultures call it.

I'm not talking about the real life versions, but the anime versions of them. Pretty sure you cant use ki energy in real life to destroy planets.

I think they're the same. They're all energies. The only difference is in the application of these.

One Piece has Haki.
Hunter x Hunter has Nen.

Same concept.
They're special powers the characters just happen
to be able control to use techniques and stuff.

Well, some stuff can manually be charged or concealed, while others can't. While they're similar, each are different to their own respective universes.

So based off that, DBZ characters, Bleach characters, One Piece characters are able to be puntin genjusus even though genjutsu controls chakra in the brain? That also means that Bleach characters would be able reiatsu crush everyone. As another example, when you run out of chakra you die, but if you run out of ki energy, your just tired as shit and unbale to move for awhile. Also while ki can be found in all living things trees, and the universe it self I dont think chakra can be found in plants let alone the universe and reiatsu can be found in everything in the soul society, but not in the world of the living. Just trying to be objective.

Plus Haki is most deff not like the other three considering the fact that you cant shoot waves of haki at people (expect the conqueror i guess) but only embed haki in weapons and projectiles. Plus perception haki allows you to foresee attacks and damage from attacks whereass Ki, Chakra, and Reiatsu don't; at least to my knowledge.

I don't know are AT Field Cores and Nanaho Linker Cores the same?

is 'The force' and Chi or Ki the same?

they are as alike as their different authors say they are.

Are the vampires from Trinity Blood the same as the ones from Vampire Knight? they are both vampires right? they even have same name.

In theory their principles are the same. It's just another name in a different universe. The author gets to decide the rules and explanation but it's really all the same thing.

How can something that can destroy planets, be the same as something that at most destroy's a city?. I mean they are similar, but they have to many difference to make them the same.

They are all one and the same... Depending on your perspective, they can be called Life Energy or Spiritual Energy... It is analogous to Ether in the west.

I mean there are 361 chakra points in naruto, how many ki points are there in DBZ, and how many reiatsu points are there in Bleach?, regular humans can learn how to manipulate ki, where I don't think regular naurto civilians can learn how manipulate chakra. As for bleach, you need some sort of external stimuli to activate spirit energy as seen with chad and orihime. Plus the damage output between the three are different also. How can they be the same? If you run out of chakra you die, but if you run out of ki or reiatsu, im pretty sure you dont..Instead of just saying they are, provide evidence in their anime's that proves they are.

If they really were the same, damage output would be equal, how you acquire said power would be the same, the cost of running out of said power would be they same. Charka and reiatsu(at leat ot my knowlege) cant be used to blow up planets by lifting your finger. You can't crush someone under the weight of your ki or chakra like you can with reiatsu. And as i said, ki can be found be in all living things and in the universe itself, and reiatsu can only be found in everything in the soul society, not the world of the living. And I'm not talking about what they do in real life, but in their respective anime.

Bleach and dbz never specify points but they are all the same concept just used differently...lol so I'm bringing this up late...I was having a madara vs dbz character debate and came across this page...

"In india they have a narrower discipline of working with the bodies energies (termed prana), and one of the main things they focus on within that system is doing stuff with the chakras, energetic centers in the body."

"The chinese system terms the bodies energy "chi" and they have thousands upon thousands of ways to work with the energy in your body. In some ways it's correct to say chi=prana, but the indian definition is much narrower."

"The chakras are localized forms of chi (or energy) each chakra is at different chi frequency and different function. This he chi flowing at different points in the body will manifest according to the chakra point it originated from, which can be a natural form or purposely willed from a specific chakra location"

"Ki (aka Chi) - spiritual energy that flows around emitting an aura
Haki - will power made into a spiritual form increasing the user's speed and/or power
Chakra - spiritual energy within a human body, similar to Ki but has more limits

btw, just to let you know, Ki (Chi) is Chinese, Haki is Japanese but fictional, and Chakra is Indian"

It's all da same..it's like water...and some ppl use the hose others use water balloons and others use water guns...or electricity...you use it but in different ways....so u can't say damage out put wld be the same...and according to naruto everything has chakra as well...that's where the whole sage mode and nature chakra kick in,,,and as we learned from bleach...in the full bring arc...everything has energy as well...that's what that group used (I forget their name at the moment)...so according to this everything has energy just as dbz does.....and they all have the same property....they are energy that in manipulated and used....and they are in everything...in the world of the living as well....

As for damage out put....it isn't the same...we've seen gin(bleach) chop down a whole city...madara sliced mountains (and he was just showing off...we have yet to see his full power)....but dey dnt blow things up...that was cutting action...In bleach we see the old man (the leader of the thirteen squad) was burning everything in the spirit world and he had to block one of his explosions or he wldve blown up the city (and dis was before we saw his full power power hundreds of issues later)

And yes humans can manipulate chakra....there's a school for it....it must be taught just as gohan taught videl to use chi....and in bleach everyone has energy....just it isn't as strong....that's why it has to be like awoken or naturally passed through genes....they are all da same...and as for reiatsu showing physical property's.....chi does the same...they fly by using energy to push themself up...again it's all energy within that can be manipulated...but the process and forms are different...again...like water or electricity
