That's not Dragon Ball, I think. It looks like the Pokémon Rayquaza, actually. Notice the overall green, the little T-Rex-y arms, the golden pattern on the side, and the red edges on the rudder "separations" of his body. Granted, the toy looks a bit shorter and its "horns" are shorter (and parallel), but it still matches a lot of Rayquaza's features.

If it's a Dragon Ball toy, it can only really be Shenlong or Shenron, the dragon that puts the "dragon" in Dragon Ball. He is the magical dragon that is summoned by collecting all seven of the Dragon Balls. He has, like all good magical dragons should, the power to grant wishes. Your toy is not a particularly good version of it, though. It does indeed share ...

No, Goku is not unbeatable. As a matter of fact, it is one of the running themes of the Dragonball Series that Goku is often defeated, is either forced to retreat or killed, and while retreating or "dead" trains his abilities up to new levels. The rest of the Z-fighters often have to hold the fort while he trains. Son Goku's power level varies widely across ...

He does utilize the power of the Saiyans... That's why when he was blew himself up and then came back he had a golden aura around him, people considered this form Super Perfect Cell.. Take a look at this picture.. Notice that he has the Golden Aura and the electricity surrounding him... This is only commonly found on Super Saiyan 2 form that Gohan had at ...

Most Shōnen shows, at least, are probably following Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z was the starting point for a great deal of the anime that followed it. Many of the best-known anime draw heavily from Dragon Ball Z, by direct admission of the creators. One Piece was so inspired, according to Wikipedia. Naruto was also probably influenced by Dragon Ball Z: ...

I think the farthest the stick has extended in DragonBall is the distance between the Earth and the Moon. In DragonBall chapter 17, Goku fights a gang of rabbits whose Boss can transform people into carrots. Once they are defeated, he decides to take them far away, very far... directly to the moon. So : 384.400Km or 238,855 miles approximatively (if the ...

Well. Probably it is just a translation refuse. Let me explain: The original name of the "Great Monkey" form is 大猿 Ōzaru 猿 or Saru (the s becomes a z due to a rule called "rendaku" - see here, link courtesy of Pleiades.) means Monkey. The or Dai character instead just seems to mean "big/large". (As to why the name is transliterated into Ō-zaru instead ...

The easiest answer is that when he is in his Super Saiyan 4 state he is essentially more powerful than the magic that makes him appear as a kid. So as long as he stays in his enhanced state, he stays an adult. As a Super Saiyan 4, Goku is one of the most powerful beings in their universe easily as powerful as any of the wish granting dragons while in his ...

Vegeta's power level is 18,000 as stated in the original manga. [Vol. 21, #249] Nappa's power level is 4,000, as stated in Weekly Shōnen Jump. [Weekly Shōnen Jump, issue 31st, 1989] Power levels are one of the most contested aspects of the Dragon Ball Manga. So much so, even when characters stopped having power levels published, fans would still try to ...

Goku of dragonball was inspired from The Monkey King from 16th century Chinese classical novel The Journey to the West. The staff first appears in the third chapter when the Monkey King, Sun Wukong, goes to the underwater kingdom of Ao Guang, the Dragon King of the East Sea, looking for a magic weapon to match his strength and skill. Upon Sun Wukong's ...

Unfortunately Dragonball is filled with hyperboles showing how "powerful" an attack is and it really depends on what you mean by the most powerful moves. One instance is how Cell said he gathered enough energy to destroy the solar system. http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Solar_Kamehameha "Forget the Earth, I can destroy the entire Solar System with my ...

While the extent is not yet know, Dragon Ball Super has introduced the first female Super Saiyan, Caulifla. Although she is from Universe 6 (where Saiyans were good, not evil), she is still a Saiyan It took Cabba telling her about the Super Saiyan form as well as about being able to achieve greater heights in her strength to make her agree, showing her ...

Dragonball GT was never part of the original magna: From Wikipedia Dragon Ball GT (ドラゴンボールGT(ジーティー), Doragon Bōru Jī Tī?, G(rand) T(ouring)[46]) premiered on Fuji TV on February 2, 1996 and ran until November 19, 1997 for 64 episodes.[2] Unlike the first two anime series, it is not based on Akira Toriyama's original Dragon Ball manga,[47] being created ...

According to Dragonball Wikia, Super Saiyan Blue is more powerful than Super Saiyan God. It's said to "far exceed it's predecessor". Though, apparently even in this form, Beerus is still unbeatable. Here's a video that discusses it. It mentions the manga, which states that Blue is much stronger than Red. I believe this may better answer your question.

They are known as “Earth's Military” and that logo is not a “K.C.” but rather a “K.G.” which stands for “King’s Guards.” More info here.

The short answer : because Buu was more powerful than the dragon. Statement : The dragons have the power to do things that the rulers of the universe cannot. Where does this information come from ? As you stated, the power of the dragon depends of the power of its maker. The first dragon we meet can only resurrect one person per wish, whereas the latest can ...

Son Goku is indeed the very first Super Saiyan to appear in the televised series in a humanoid appearance. He makes the jump to Super Saiyan level one in 'Transformed at Last', the twentieth episode of the Frieza Saga and the ninety-fifth episode in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. (1991). The Super Saiyan form first premiered in August 1991, within chapter ...

In the current series Super Saiyan God is the strongest form Technically at the point of Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan 4 no longer exists in the Dragonball canon. Dragonball GT was removed from the canon and replaced with the Battle of the Gods movie and then of course the series Dragonball Super. We've also never had a power multiplier stated for SSJ4 ...

They're both Namekians Kami and "King Piccolo" are the same type of entity; a Namekian. Kami expelled the evil inside of himself, so he could better become the protector of earth. Both Kami and King Piccolo have lost some of their memories, which is why their origin story changes slightly throughout the series as more is revealed. Due to his memory loss and ...

King Kai does not actually know how to use Instant Transmission: King Kai: only in the original FUNimation dub, he mentions he could have taught Goku the technique when Goku visits him on his planet to find the location of the New Namek during the Cell Games Saga. In the manga and Japanese versions, King Kai simply asks Goku if he learned it from ...

Goku was the first Super Saiyan seen on TV in the battle against Frieza. We know that Broly was a Super Saiyan first, but he does not show up until the movies. There may have been a mention of a legendary Super Saiyan with a faceless Saiyan, but I can't remember if that is from a movie or the show itself. The original Super Saiyan, notice the gold fur.

He turned regular Super Saiyan because he's too sympathetic. He thought Frost was a 100% good guy, making Goku think Frost deserved to win. So he purposely fought at his base Super Saiyan form. I think he thought Frost was the exact same power as Frieza and would require minimal effort. Also because the writers are leaving out a great deal of details. Goku ...

In episode 41, Bulma and crew are not on namek, and the 2 "medical namekians" are actually 2 different aliens. They are playing a mind game on Krillin Gohan, and Bulma. The reason then, that the dragon balls are still "small" is because these aliens only had the memories of the 3 of them to go off of, so the earth dragonballs. In a couple more episodes ...

My Theory: Cell can't go Super Saiyan or great ape, because his saiyan DNA isn't compatible with the DNA of namekians or Whatever-the-hell-Freeza's race is. The reason human-saiyan hybrids CAN go super saiyan is because human DNA and saiyan DNA are compatible. The fact that Pan exists is proof of this, considering the fact that humans and saiyans can produce ...

My response assumes that we are discussing the theoretical potential of Goku himself. Limiting myself to the Canon Dragonball universe (no DBGT). To correct your statement, the only modes of super-saiyan seen thus far are Super Saiyan 1,2,3 and God-mode. Bills, the lord of destruction was able to best Goku. Had Goku managed to stay in God-mode the fight ...

The original is "over 8,000". It was changed to "9,000" in the 'ocean dub'. I am pretty sure this change was made to match Vegeta's mouth movements better.

The idea permeates Asian cultures because the belly is the reservoir for chi (the body's energy/universal energy), which mixes in with medical/spiritual practices throughout the region. Strong characters/people have large appetites because they have a vast reservoir to fill/draw from. Kinda like with Naruto chakra stuff but not. I think it is also more like; ...

Filler is the reason for the inconsistency. Scenes with Cell and Frieza in Hell did not exist in the manga, and, using that as the "real" canon, Cell and Frieza should have been rehashed into a new existence as well.

After the events of dragonball, Launch stayed with Tien and Chiaotzu (despite Tien's objections) and can be seen in the saiyan saga with them and is seen at a bar drinking after Tien's death. After the Saiyan saga though she is sort of written out. We know from some filler that she is in one of the cities and offers up her energy for Goku's spirit bomb but ...
