So Akira Toriyama said recently in an interview that Goten and Trunks transforms so easily in super saiyan, because saiyans have some "S cells" for becoming a super saiyan, those who has more transform more easily, and Goten and Trunks inherited them from Goku and Vegeta so that's why they transform more easily than Goku and Vegeta. But Goten and Trunks are half saiyans meaning they should have less "S cells" than Goku and Vegeta, no more. Then how does the "more S cells" explanation for becoming a super saiyan makes sense?

  • It's anime. The story is only as consistent as the demands of the current arc. – pojo-guy Dec 31 '17 at 19:22
  • How do you know that Goten & Trunks would have half as many S-cells as Goku & Vegeta respectively? If the process of reproduction is same for humans & saiyans (and it should be as Goku, a saiyan, & Chi Chi, a human, were able to produce an offspring) then scientifically, either all the cells of the saiyan will be S-cells or none of them would be S-cells, regardless of whether it's a complete or partial saiyan. But if all the cells of every saiyan are S-cells, then the above argument holds good for partial saiyans only. Not talking scientifically, user37439's must be right about the care given. – SamInuyasha ANMF Jan 3 '18 at 11:37

Actually you've taken the point a little too literally. What Toriyama stated that you need X number of S-Cells to turn SSJ which Goku and Vegeta have. Now the X might be a minimum and Goku and Vegeta might even have say X+Y S-Cells while another Saiyan has X-Y S-Cells and is unable to turn Super Saiyan. Suppose Goten and Trunks were kids of this other Saiyan, they wouldn't have inherited as many S-Cells compared to being kids of Goku and Vegeta. So in other words, it was relatively a lot easier for Goten and Trunks to turn Super Saiyan than a random Saiyan on Planet Vegeta because the two of them happen to be kids of actual Super Saiyans(Meaning, the probability of them having the the necessary amount of S-Cells is a lot > than the probability of another random Saiyan whose parents or ancestors haven't turned Super Saiyan ).

Well aside from the amount of S-cells, the Saiyan also requires a gentle heart which even Broly had as a child prodigy.

Because of the hostile environments in Planet Vegeta, there are very few Saiyans in it.

Meanwhile, aside from being Saiyan offsprings, because Earth has a less hostile environment and were taken care of by ChiChi and Bulma, Gohan, Goten and Trunks where easier to become Saiyan.
