Ever wondered if in Dragon Ball Z, Super Saiyan 5 forms are possible? Wonder no more, as Akira Toriyama himself talks about these as he uncovers and solves the mysteries in the Dragon Ball Z universe!
Saiyan Island recently posted an article where Akira Toriyama answers questions about anything regarding DBZ, here are some of the questions Akira Toriyama answered:
Android 17′s real name is Lapis, while Android 18 is Lazuli. They were human siblings before becoming Androids. After the Cell Saga, Android 17 was revived with the Dragon Balls and became a park ranger at a nature preserve. He makes a great living, marries a zoologist, and adopts two children. Of course, we all know Android 18 marries Krillen after the Cell Saga and has a daughter named Marron.
The second Q & A focuses on Mr. Satan (Hercule), Buu, the Kaiōshin, and a few other pieces of interesting information.
When Mr. Satan was young, he attended a fighting dojo called “Satan Castle”. Through a combination of considerable power and good luck (his rival fighting opponent would get food poisoning, for instance), he quickly became world champion and was called “Mr. Satan” after the name of his dojo. One day, at a bar in South City (where they were on tour), Satan and his martial-arts master made the mistake of making fun of Tao Pai Pai’s hairstyle. His master was killed, and Satan was heavily injured. From then on, Mr. Satan solemnly swore never to fight anyone whose true identity he didn’t know, or anyone who seemed crazy strong.
No no, Mr. Satan really is strong. On an ordinary human level, that is. If a monstrously strong opponent turned up, he’d pretend he wasn’t feeling well and sit out the match.
There’s only the two of them in their family. But they’ve got loads of servants.
Though in the manga Kaiōshin said that Bibidi made him, the truth is that one called “Buu” was not actually created by Bididi, but has existed since time immemorial. He cycled between rampages and long hibernation. During numerous iterations of this cycle, he absorbed the evil elements of mankind, becoming steadily more violent. Bibidi merely knew the means of calling Buu from out of his long slumber. Since the current Buu is a slightly different life-form due to the changes brought about when the evil Buu was expelled, it’s not known whether he’ll still go into long hibernation.
He doesn’t particularly need energy. It’s just that he likes candy.
*By the way, since the bad Buu was pure evil, he was easily purified in the afterlife, and was able to be reincarnated as Uub right away.
It’s unpronounceable for humans. Putting it into letters, I guess it’d be something like “Nuwemwittsimwawaay”.
No one can. Kaiōshin are born as Kaiōshin. There are three of them, and they work in shifts. Though there are two of them on duty now, if one of the Kaiōshin were to die in an accident, then the currently-inactive Kaiōshin would grow in the Kaiōshin Realm like a plant. If there aren’t any accidents, then it’s said their lifespans are about 75,000 years.
The Kaiōshin (who create planets) and the Gods of Destruction (who destroy them) have never gotten along that well, but once every 1,000 years they go to each other’s realms and hold a coordination meeting. At this time, they got into an argument over some trifling thing, and a certain short-tempered God of Destruction sealed Elder Kaioshin away inside a sword. Naturally, it wouldn’t have been proper for him to destroy the Kaiōshin Realm itself. By the way, that God of Destruction was Beerus.
Sorry, I’m really bad when it comes to romantic stories like this, so I can’t give you a straight answer. But I think that probably Android 18 (who used to be a delinquent) found Krillen’s seriousness and straightforwardness refreshing, and somehow or other she ended up falling for him.
As you might expect, he’s never actually been to a bargain sale. Bulma’s super rich after all, so I don’t think there’d be any need for them to go. Most likely he just learned about them from TV news or commercials he happened to watch.
Super Saiyan 2 and 3 are nothing more than powered-up variations of Super Saiyan. After the fight with Beerus, Goku realized that mastering his normal state and Super Saiyan would raise his level more and sap less strength, so I think he probably won’t become Super Saiyan 2 or 3 any more.
It originated in a festival held since long ago at the temple which now serves as the tournament grounds.
There are rumors going around that Akira Toriyama is planning the Dragon Ball Z manga continuation and it follows the story line set after the movie “Battle of Gods” which means that the DBZ multiverse would get explored.
The Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie rekindled the hopes of DBZ fans that the most recognizable anime/manga series of all time would be continued and if the reports are true, then we would get to see the Dragon Ball Z manga continuation!
According to JapNation AniManga, The Dragon Ball Z manga continuation would follow after the end of Battle of Gods and it would explore the “Super Saiyan God” mythos as well as the roles of the “gods of destruction” as it was revealed in the movie that there are other universes with their own god of destruction.
JapNation AniManga also reported that the Dragon Ball Z manga continuation would go back to its roots as an “adventure” story similar to the original series compared to the DBZ manga that focused too much on the battles and the “bad guy of the week” format. The story is rumored to be Goku, under the training of Whis and Bills would travel the DBZ multiverse in order to learn more about the “Super Saiyan God” form and why it exists. Of course, it is also rumored that the “main bad guy” of the manga would be the most powerful god of destruction who also happens to be THE Super Saiyan God.
However it should be noted that Akira Toriyama himself hasn’t confirmed the Dragon Ball Z manga continuation but with the fans asking for him to continue the manga as well as Toriyama himself delving more into the DBZ mythos by revealing Goku’s mother, it could happen that the Dragon Ball Z manga continuation announcement would come.
