There are still talking animals in Dragon Ball Z, in the episode Plight of the children, the police officer is an animal, and some of the children are too. Also, near the end of the Cell Saga, you had a cut to the King of the Earth (a dog), commenting on how much adult Goku, looked like the child Goku who killed King Piccolo. But the number of talking ...

There is no known explanation for the password in manga AFAIK. According to the Dragon Ball Wikia, only a few words of the Namekian language are explained. Piccolo and Porunga are the two words really explained and the others are in filler episodes. The password is "Takkaraput pop porunga pupiritt paro!" . As far as you make it out, Porunga is part of the ...

To put it precisely, no. As @Gao mentions in his comment, the difference in appearance between the two is obvious enough, keeping their clothing similarity aside. Moreover, Naruto and Goku exist in different series universes and hence they're not clones of each other. However, the similarity between the characters are astonishingly similar. This is because ...

According to the Wikia and my memory, Androids 1-7 and 9-12 were useless due to them being faulty (design problems) and some were too emotional and the kind. As for Android 8 a.k.a. Eighter or Hat-San, as you rightly said, he had been depicted in the Dragon Ball manga, anime and the movies. Now, Android 13-15 were introduced in the 7th movie, Dragon Ball ...

Though he put his hand in the form of triangle, the hole is in square/rectangular form. The answer is quite scientific. A Reuleaux triangle can be rotated to create a square shape. This YouTube video and this site explain it in more detail. Tenshinhan's hand shape is similar to the Reuleaux triangle. Due to its shape, while it rotates, its cutting edge cut ...

At the same time Planet Plant (AKA Planet Vegeta) was being destroyed, Goku was being sent to a planet called Earth in order to kill all of it's inhabitants and then sell it to Frieza. Vegeta and Nappa were on another planet and Frieza told them that a huge meteor fell on their planet and destroyed it. That's how Goku and Vegeta survived. So that's make the ...

This seems to be a coincidence. From http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Krillin: Like most characters in the series, the name Krillin is a pun. In his case, its Japanese source, Kuririn, is made up of two parts. The first two syllables come from 栗 (kuri), which means "chestnut" in reference to his shaved head (the "chestnut" pun is also carried over to his ...

The Pilaf Gang gathered the Dragon Balls and wished for youth before the events of the Battle of Gods Movie. Though, it is never shown on screen, but it's mentioned in the movie and the series. Mai: Earlier, when we were finally about to get Shenlong to grant our wish, Pilaf-sama, you said "Make us young again!" Pilaf: Y-Yeah, but... there's no point in ...

If you want to start with the beginning, start with Dragon Ball. If you want to start with the most popular segment (probably the most entertaining segment, but this is a matter of opinion), start with Dragon Ball Z. Many people haven't seen Dragon Ball and yet they understand most of what follows it without watching Dragon Ball. I don't know if Dragon Ball ...

The attack leaves a square hole due to the way he holds his hands. When he fires the attack normally he places his hand in a diamond shape and zooms into his target. the attack then is shot and forms the square shape. as you can see that his hands put together form more of a diamond shape and when he fires the attack it rotates and makes the square. later ...

This Wiki explains it pretty well: Dead Zone is the only film that takes place after the end of Dragon Ball and before the beginning of Dragon Ball Z. The events of this movie can be placed into the series timeline between episodes "The End, The Beginning" of the Piccolo Jr. Saga and "The New Threat" of the Vegeta Saga.

In Dragon Ball universe Animals are different form our earth animals. Some of then can talk and even walk on two legs.Take Puar and Oolong as an example. Its never explained that why some dogs on Dragon Ball universe act like normal dog and some act as human. Not only for the case of dog, there are other animals too which behave in the same way. Here is a ...

King Kai himself was not able to use that technique, and he said that Goku was the first one who ever mastered that technique. However, King Kai tries to teach the technique to everyone who visits his planet.

Goku and Bulma got the seven star dragon ball from the Ox king's castle. The Ox king agreed to give them the dragonball if they put out the fire that was destroying his castle. Once the fire was put out by Master Roshi, Bulma then used the dragon radar to locate the dragon ball in the ruins of the castle. This picture is from the Dragonball manga. It was ...

If you're talking about the manga, Master Roshi indeed wants the plane to stop, but the reason is quite obvious to the reader: he wants to poop real bad (Chapter 113). This is so clearly stated that I am not sure this is what you were asking about. Maybe it is not so clear in the anime?

This is all explained by King Kai during the Freeza Saga in chapter 321. King Kai asks Kami whether people that had died from old age could be revived, to which the answer was negative. So then he asks whether people that had indirectly died by an evil person could be revived, to which the answer was positive. Kami replied positive, saying that even though ...

Your assumption about the dragon balls was wrong. They did indeed scatter in chapter 156, right after Shenlon brought everyone back to life. Also seeing the mini saga about the wedding-dress was anime filler to begin with, one could argue that it would be pretty lame to fill it with the gang just using the dragon balls. Apart from that, it should be noted ...

One possible answer is that Saiyans get way more powerful than before if they agonize (and survive). It's called Zenkai. This ability is found in pure Saiyan, half-blood and even Cell. One example is when Gohan fights Cell, kicks him around, but refuses to kill him. This allows Cell to recover and get way stronger than before, making it very difficult to ...

Budou (武道) is a Japanese term describing Japanese martial arts. Budou consists of the kanji "bu" (武, ぶ), meaning "war" or "martial," and dou (道, どう), meaning "path" or "way." The tournament is called the 天下一武道会, "Tenkaichi Budoukai," which can literally mean: "(Best) Martial Arts on Earth (Under the Sky) Tournament."

In Dragon Ball, 17% of the population of earth are animals. Even the king of earth is a blue dog. The reason they stopped showing them is because DBZ was mainly set in places like the South City and Ginger Town. Those were mainly populated by humans because animals are only found in the more city-like places, like the West City (That's where the World ...

It's not clearly explained in neither manga nor anime, but my understanding of this ability is that he can turn anything (remember he turning rocks into candies?) into lifeless stuff, so turning people into monkeys might be too much for him. I mistook monkey for money. Since gun and money are lifeless stuff, I would say yes. PS. People turned into lifeless ...

Taken from the wiki. It's just above the "Biography" part. There is also a more descriptive part about it in the "Biography" part. During Dragon Ball Z, he is seen striving to become a powerful warrior, and still hopes to surpass Goku one day. He valiantly fights and defeats a Saibaman when the Saiyans arrive, and does battle with Nappa, during which ...

It was most probably because Ox King did not have a pure heart, and so would not have been able to ride the Nimbus. Evidence for this is seen during the first meeting of Goku and Ox King, when rumors that Ox King murdered those who approached his castle for treasures (out of greed, of course) was confirmed by him when he admits his wrongdoings in front of ...

There are actually a lot of ideas about that, and one is that Goku spent a long time training in the heavens, where power is limitless and that is said to have greatly strengthened him. Vegeta on the other hand, never had that chance. As a note, Vegeta did reach Super Saiyajin 4 after gaining power from one of Bulma's machines, then he fused with Goku to ...

Historically, Probably NO. Original Super Saiyan was originally thought to be a legend, until Goku first transformed during his fight with Frieza. In a filler scene in episode 66 of DBZ, the first appearance of the Original Super Saiyan was shown, it looks like a Great Ape with yellowish colored fur. Apparently Super Saiyan was not in Great Ape form, unless ...

First, in Japan, it was a non issue. Different culture. Check out all the different animes and mangas that pull off similar or even worse moves. Once it went to the western world where it is an issue... Networks did not realize (sold as kids show -> didn't bother checking the tapes). Back here there was an issue where, at a kids show on national tv, the ...

According to the Dragon Ball's timeline's wikia page: November 2nd, Age 762: Goku is revived on November 2nd, Age 762 by the Earth Dragon Balls Age 762, December 24: Every one killed by Frieza on planet Namek is revived by the Earth Dragon Balls So (much) less than one year has passed between these two uses of Dragon Balls. I don't know if there is a ...
