Dragon Ball Super: A Duo of Female Saiyans, Father-Son Showdown

Posted on May 6, 2017

Fans have been excited for the first female Saiyan of fighting age in the Dragon Ball universe outside of GT. Well, now there is twice the reason to get excited as it has been revealed there will be at least a duo of female Saiyans! The first is Kale, the girl we have seen seeing in the Universe Survival Saga promos who can go Super Saiyan. Her backstory is that she always gets chewed out by Cabba for being too nervous. After Cabba tells her one day to unleash her anger in order to become a Super Saiyan, her pent-up stress takes her to the next level – a berserker state, which is known sometimes as a Legendary Super Saiyan.

The other female Saiyan is the one we’ve seen most recently in Dragon Ball Super episode 88 – Caulifla. She is the younger sister to Cabba’s mentor, Renso (who was the former captain of an elite unit of Saiyan warriors). Caulifla is the leader of a group of Saiyan punks and according to her brother, her potential power is far beyond his own.

As for the Father-Son showdown, in Dragon Ball Super episode 90 (Facing the Wall that Must be Overcome! Goku vs Gohan) – which airs May 14 – Goku and Gohan will take opposing teams in preparation for the up-coming Tournament of Power. Gohan actually will challenge Goku and it will be a team of Gohan & Piccolo vs Goku & Tien.

The reason for Gohan’s challenge? According to the scan below, through his training with Piccolo, Gohan came to realize that the one he must surpass is his father Goku. So he teams up with Piccolo and they take on the duo of Gokuu and Tien! Facing Gohan, who has finished his training, has now obtained unprecedented power! What will Goku do now?! What is this method Piccolo used to bring out Gohan’s power?
Gohan, much surpass his father!! And after the team battle, impressed by his son’s power, Goku will challenge Gohan to a 1-vs-1 fight!
