Just as the title states, do you personally think that in Dragonball Super that they should make a return, regardless if it's important to the plot.

I would enjoy it and find it amusing how the levels have gained since Freeza in his 2nd form was the highest that was stated in the anime/manga at the time. '

Curiousity and lulz for me!

edit: i'm not sure if I posted this in the right thread, if not, feel free to deleate or move.

I know you're honestly asking this question solely as a means of curiosity, but others might mistake it as trolling. Just a heads-up.

I've been under the impression that the idea of "power levels" has routinely sabotaged from the moment its conception, with Goku and the rest of the cast repeatedly smashing expectations and dishing out hard lessons in "judging a book by its cover." As such, I see little point in implementing something that Toriyama constantly pisses on.

If it died a long time ago, let it stay dead.

Although it's never called out numerically the way that Dragonball once did, the entire concept is widespread in the shonen genre, and it's one of its absolute worst features. It leads to plots where the winner of each conflict is whoever is last to pull a power-up of out his ass, and once you've seen that once or twice, it's boring and completely predictable (hint: it's the protagonist who's going to get that last-second power up needed for victory).

So no, Dragonball doesn't need to explicitly bring back the exact measurement of power levels.
