I often wonder how many other Dragonball fans realize just how much royalty there is among the main cast of the series. I mean, everyone makes a big deal about Vegeta being the prince of all Saiyans or whatever, but he’s surrounded by so much nobility that, were everyone else to make as big a deal about it as he does, no one would really pay much attention to his bragging (not that they do anymore anyway) I mean, if you think about it, every remaining Saiyan that we know about is tied to royalty in one way or another! Here, let me break it down.
Princes by Blood: Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, Goten, Tarble, Frieza, Cooler, Piccolo*
Princesses by Blood: Chi Chi, Pan, Bra
Princes by Marriage: Goku
Princesses by Marriage: Bulma, Videl, Gure
Kings: King Piccolo, Piccolo*, Ox King, King Vegeta, King Cold, King Kai
Emperors: Chiaotzu, Pilaf
Seriously, the show’s got more royalty than your average Disney cruise, and each has just as much right to their respective titles as Vegeta. Use this information how you will. I’d love to see more fan stuff come of this fact.
*Technically, Piccolo can be included in both the King and Prince by Blood categories, depending on your interpretation of whether he’s King Piccolo’s son or reincarnation. Both are equally valid, given this ambiguity.
