I enjoy considering the possibility that Saiyans had sports.  Sports that were more complex than the fighting and wrestling matches that are obviously associated with these battle-hungry people.  Seeing as how Saiyans are often shown fighting in groups and especially pairs, I like to think they put value on teamwork due to the practical application it serves in their careers.

Of course most of the sports they’d enjoy would be XXTREME where players getting maimed or even killed would shock no one (no wonder there were only a few thousand people alive on their planet).  Some rules would seem ridiculous to an outsider because they coax players into as many life-threatening stunts as possible for no other purpose than to give them an outlet to express their love of bravado.  Other rules may even be surprisingly complex, as the games would have developed from a need to instruct future military leaders on battle strategies.

I also like to think that they enjoy extreme solo sports.  Like humans who enjoy jumping off cliffs and pushing the limits of their bodies, I like to think Saiyans enjoy doing crazy stunts like rocketing themselves into the vacuum of space just to hold contests on who can survive the longest, who can propel themselves closest to the moon as possible before succumbing to hypothermia or the bubble of ki-pressurized air around them is no longer breathable (if you turn Oozaru along the way, 10,000 extra points to you).  Then let’s fly our spaceships out as close to the sun as possible without your hair bursting into TOO many flames (the real reason Nappa became bald), but only bring enough fuel for a one-way ticket cuz lol you’re pulling the ship back to the planet out of the intense gravity of the sun by your own ki and if you faint from heat exhaustion, lol u dead, you weakling scum.

S.H. Figuarts Vegeta and Goku’s heads pop off and fit perfectly on each other’s bodies!

Switching Goku and Vegeta’s faces produce… interesting results.  I want to keep them like this!

I impulse bought a S.H. Figuarts Goku and he’s a perfect compliment to Vegeta.  There’s even a height difference between the figures!

Anonymous asked: When does The Return of Cooler even happen? Dende is guardian but Gohan isn't a super saiyan? >____>

Do NOT try to make sense of the movies in relation to canon.  Trying to do so will only result in frustration and tears.  Turn off any part of your brain that deals with logic and just go with it.

In Lord Slug, Frieza and Super Saiyans are mentioned but no one’s been to Namek yet, Goku can’t go SSJ but can do Kaioken, and Piccolo is alive… !?!?!

I like to think all of the movies (except BOG) are all connected in their own messed-up AU.

Anonymous asked: A lot of people say Goku's sexist because of the way he 'treats' Chichi like all she can do is cook and wash his clothes, and in the newest movie he said Bulma could get hit so Vegeta could get strong, like saying girls boundaries or whatever don't matter. Thoughts?

I don’t think Goku is necessarily sexist.  He’s just a jerk who is so lost in his own thoughts, desires, and feelings that he often doesn’t take other people into account (men and women) even when they are obviously upset.  He has this assholish behavior the ENTIRE SERIES (linked are only a few examples out of many).  Goku is a very literal-thinking person who sees a problem and seeks solutions regardless of the ethics behind said solutions.  He isn’t evil because he doesn’t intentionally hurt other people, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a jerk.  It was tolerable and even cute and amusing when he was a kid.

We tend to let little kids get away with more because they’re still learning basic social skills while developing their emotional intelligence and empathy.  They have a lot to learn!

But when he’s an adult and still behaving like this, I just want to smack him.

^ I love Goku, but this was very satisfying. ^ The guy deserved to be smacked 100 times over during the series because of some of the crap he said/pulled.

But I think this behavior is a big part of his character.  While in some ways he gets older and more mature, in other ways, he NEVER grows up.  It wouldn’t be Goku if he wasn’t bluntly and unapologetically saying unfiltered words off the top of his head.

He is actually the character that baffles me the most.  He seems so simple but strangely enough I find his simplicity complex (and thus he’s very interesting).  He often unquestionably does things just because someone tells him to (examples:  listening to whatever his grandpa taught him and in filler eps listening to whatever Taopaipai tells him to do).  On the other hand, he often couldn’t give a crap about what you say or feel because he’s going to do what he wants no matter how much it hurts you.

image

He takes things SO LITERALLY (marrying Chichi just because he promised to even though he initially doesn’t want to - conflicting between two things he tends to do:  doing what he wants vs. doing what someone told him to do).  He can quickly understand physical concepts but doesn’t seem to understand or care about the emotional cues of others.  He has a difficult time picking up on or having interest in anything less than DIRECT and CLEAR communication.  Subtle verbal and emotional cues tend to be completely lost on him.

HE JUST KILLED TWO PEOPLE

image

LOOK AT HIM SMILING GLEEFULLY OVER THIS AS BULMA STANDS STUNNED AND DISTURBED.  He completely ignores her expression, her tone of voice, and her words.  Still smiling as if she wasn’t upset at all, he changes the subject.  This can be seen as Goku being a bit of a creep but he GENUINELY JUST DOES NOT UNDERSTAND nor does he care to.

But this is only one side of Goku’s character.  He’s still a GREAT GUY AND A HERO.  He’s just a bit of a jerk on top of it all. 

All in all, I think Goku CAN be sexist and say some sexist things, but he’s an equal opportunity jerk.
