"Call Me Kakarot" Scene Explained! | Dragon Ball Super: Broly

Post by InnovativeJdawg » Sun Feb 03, 2019 1:09 am

So I've been meaning to make this video for quite some time on my YouTube channel and I'm just barely getting around to it. Ever since I saw DBS: Broly, my mind began racing on why that final line of the entire movie was so significant. So I wanted to share my personal thoughts with all of you and hopefully give you a different outlook on the "Call Me Kakarot" scene! Let me know what you think and if you like my content, I'd love the support and feedback!

I saw it as Goku accepting his saiyan heritage after fighting a super strong but pure hearted saiyan, just like him. Being a saiyan doesn't really bother him anymore.

He's Goku, from Earth, but also Kakarot.

That's definitely one way of looking at it, it all helps build Goku as a character in my opinion!

I agree with the of it meaning his final acceptance of his Saiyan heritage.

It makes sense he would want other Saiyans to know him by his Saiyan name. This isn't the first time Goku has accepted his Saiyan heritage, though. He accepted it on Namek before he fought Frieza. Broly was definitely an exceptional Saiyan, which might have reignited his Saiyan pride, but I think there's another reason the writers had Goku ask to be called "Kakarot." That way, when Broly returns sometime in the future, he can scream "Kakarot" while berserk like the original version of him did. lol

"My name is Son Goku, and also... Kakarot" - That is the real line in the original japanese. No "Call me Kakarot" thing is there.
