Does a child of a Saiyan and a Human still count as a Saiyan?

#2 Posted by Jeff (3671 posts) -

Half-Saiyans sound even scarier and more confusing than full-bloods to me.

Does he have a monkey tail or just a monkey nub?

#4 Posted by CallMeRotten (229 posts) -

A monkey nub..that's just wrong.

Hey, If it can become a super saiyan. Its a saiyan in my books.

#6 Posted by Scott (4 posts) -

Well Gohan has a human mother and he was considered a Saiyan.

#7 Posted by tec3297 (1170 posts) -

Full Saiyan, Half Saiyan, Quarter Saiyan, they are all they same.  If they can transform, then they are saiyans all the same to me.

#8 Posted by MrZeal (84 posts) -

Yes it counts! Once a Saiyan never a... a... "post reply here"

Shalom :)

I was gonna make a joke about them being half-saiyans and then make a joke involving D&D-type attributes.  Then I realized I don't know enough about D&D to do that properly.

#10 Posted by Soopy (46 posts) -

i believe they do. if they have sayian blook in them then they should be considered it.

Quarter Saiyan could transform? We never saw Pan transform, the only quarter Saiyan, we also never saw Bra transform... so is transformation proof of Saiyanism? What if only males could become Super Saiyans, but then in the final finale for DBGT we saw Goku Jr. (son of Pan) and Vegeta Jr. (son of either Bra or Trunks) transform and they were 1/8 Saiyan. So, maybe it is just males who can transform .
#12 Posted by Termite (2398 posts) -

Yeah, maybe only the males can transform.

And Vinny, you made the right choice comin to Giant Bomb, I really liked ya on the gamespot podcast

#13 Posted by JamesConsidine (28 posts) -

I guess once goku died they are all thats left lol, so i suppose if the saiyans are to survive then they kind of need to be saiyans :P

#14 Posted by XAMS (68 posts) -

They should be called saiyumans or humaiyans. But that would sound stupid.

Actually :P they were 1/16 Saiyans.
#16 Posted by Shortyz (20 posts) -

Yeah i think they count as a Saiyan if they have some Saiyan blood in them

#17 Posted by Raspberry (63 posts) -

As long as he can go up into super saiyan? :P

#18 Posted by KillerFly (397 posts) -

If you have a saiyan parent and a human parent, you're half-saiyan, that simple.

#19 Posted by Bilawal (109 posts) -

Half Sayain even though you still have Sayain blood running through your veins.

O yah, well i think. Goku`s wife was a human right? Id consider Gohan sayan
#21 Posted by Kman (77 posts) -

I would assume so cause didnt Gohan have the sayain tail? Btw Vinny are you still doing the burst limit review?

#22 Edited by pandorasbox (303 posts) -

There are tons of these "half-saiyans" in DBZ. Gohan, Goten, Trunks, Pan, etc.
And i am pretty sure they are full saiyan regardless as long as one of your parents is saiyan. Gohan had a tail.

#23 Posted by OGCartman (4354 posts) -

O yah i forgot about the sayan tail, wow i was such a huge DBZ fan a while ago, still am. DBZ Burst Limit was awesome

#24 Posted by jyurakyumihawk (109 posts) -

In Malaysia the character's name is a little different. Here's a few example;

Son Goku = Son Goku (still)
Vegeta = Bezita (which is better because Vegeta sounds like an abbreviation for vegetable)
Krillin = Kurin
Bulma = Bulma (still)
Mr. Hercule = Mr. Satan (AHA!!)

By the way I think a half-saiyan should never be as strong as a pure blood.

#26 Edited by RoonilWazslib (21 posts) -

I would consider them to still have Saiyan blood. Remember though according to the series, the potential for the Saiyans power is related more to  the father's power level at the time of conception.

#27 Posted by AnonymousLegion (64 posts) -

Gohan, Trunks and Goten are all half - Saiyans.
It's all nitpicking though, they can get gold hair, therefore win.

#28 Posted by Blueblur1 (344 posts) -

What about Saiyajins? ;)

I've got a copy of it sitting on my desktop, just with E3 and the site launch I haven't had time to revisit...yet.
#30 Posted by piecat (384 posts) -

I just don't get why at the SS3 stage they have transparent eyebrows. That always bothered me.

#31 Posted by Ryu (382 posts) -

If anything the half Saiyan children are going to be far stronger than the full bloods, remember Gotenx?. I guess Saiyan genes are dominant.

#32 Posted by IOUOneGalaxy127 (18 posts) -

I wonder if there is a point where the children of Saiyans and Humans won't be able to transform anymore.

#33 Posted by Ryu (382 posts) -

Maybe but with Saiyans like Brolly popping up, I don't think they'll be dying out anytime soon.

#34 Posted by SamuraiBudgerigar (129 posts) -

Can't think of a good reason why not.

#35 Posted by _Joey_ (4 posts) -

well id assume they wouldnt be as strong as a full saiyan. goku and vegeta are full saiyans and no ones stronger then them. but as long as thy have saiyan blood i guess they still count as a saiyan

#36 Posted by Jechtshot78 (42 posts) -

Certainly a question for the ages.

#37 Posted by Mr_Pink (23 posts) -

if it can turn into a super Saiyan is a Saiyan even if it whas born with out a tail like trunks, goten, pan and trunks sister forgot her name they are still Saiyan

So you're really good if your Dad's sperm has a glowing gold tail on it?
#39 Posted by ObsideonDarman (670 posts) -

Well it I think it does because it is then "Half-Saiyan" which is till technically a Saiyan, AND NOW I AM CONFUSED!!!!

#40 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

Okay...so the Saiyan's potential is directly tied to how strong the father (or, I assume, mother--Pan was the only relevant female Saiyan) was at conception. So then, by the time that child has grown up and concieved some kids of his own, he'll be much more powerful than his dad was at the same age. So theoretically, every generation of Saiyans is more powerful than the last, at an earlier age.

In a few hundred years, some 1/256th Saiyan infant is going to be so powerful he'll have a tantrum and destroy the planet.

Earth is fucked.

I think that each time they get weaker. I mean gohan was stronger then goku at a certain point, but gohan never made it to SS4. I think that with each generation they get weaker. I mean how could a pure-blooded saiyan be weaker then a 1/256? I can't believe this topic has gone so far...lol.

I think thats the way it goes..lol.

#42 Posted by ThaMilkMan (356 posts) -

The answer is yeah! all you need is a little blood!!!, no more sayain, half sayain, quarter sayain, discrimination!!!!

BTW the post name had me laughing pretty well!

#43 Posted by Shadow (4988 posts) -

Gohan, Trunks, Pan, Goten, that Goku-looking kid from the future movie where Pan was old.  Yeah, I'd say they're still saiyan.  If you think otherwise, I'm pretty sure you're implying something about the white power movement...also, you would have supported Voldemort.

Did you play the demo?

it was ok...

Yes

#48 Posted by pcguy2 (74 posts) -

thats easy... saiyan + human = half-saiyan

#49 Posted by guerrajr (57 posts) -

To me half sayains are sayains because they still have the tail at birth and they transform into the giant ape. They go through most of the same things that full sayains go through.

#50 Posted by atejas (3057 posts) -

for some reason, saiyans appear to become more powerful the more their bloodline becomes diluted.
In terms of age of SSJ-ing

Goku<Gohan<Goten
