It’s King Chapa (what I think he looks like now)! Maybe King Chapa was the one who trained Oob until he turned 10! Their clothes look similar, so I kind of figured they came from the same region.3
TOMA: A return-home order? Wait just a minute! We haven’t heard anything of the sort.
DODORIA: Heh heh heh… That’s because you’re all about to die right here and now.
NARRATOR: After this, they lost contact with Toma & co… That is the event that caused Bardock’s suspicion of this return-home order to grow ever-stronger.
TOYOTARŌ: It’s Pumbukin, Selypa, Totapo, and Toma! It seems like these four were involved off in the background of the Broly movie… or at least that’s how I imagine it. (laughs)14
ONIO’S WIFE: Onio, dear, let’s not worry about that. Instead, let’s go find a planet that we can make into a vacation home!
TOYOTARŌ: It’s Onio, who appears in Neko Majin! Once again, I went and imagined him being involved with the Broly movie… Including animation and spin-offs, the Saiyans who survived that day are Goku, Vegeta, Nappa, Raditz, Broli, Paragus, then Tarble and Tullece, and furthermore… Onio must have also survived!15
He was taken to the Moon by Goku as punishment for his behavior, and that Moon, with him on it, has been destroyed — twice.
I don’t know whether he’s alive or dead, but I’d like to see him use not just his technique of turning those he touches into carrots, but his skill of being able to survive(?) out in space to help Goku & co.19
As I’m sure you’re well aware, he’s Freeza’s right-hand man.
The concept for these sketches is “characters who don’t appear in Super“, but (to make a shameless plug…) he’ll actually appear very briefly in the bonus comic from Volume 10. But at present, he hasn’t appeared yet, so this is his last chance—!20
He’s one of the mind-controlled underlings of the sorcerer Bobbidi.
Since he was taken in by his wicked heart and mind-controlled, there’s no doubt he’s evil. But, given Bobbidi could control someone with only Vegeta’s level of evil, maybe he wasn’t such a bad guy after all…
Incidentally, he appears in a single panel in volume three.21
He survived by escaping from Planet Namek, whose weather had gone haywire, while still a baby. What sort of relationship did he have to Katatz or the Eldest, I wonder… I’d like to see a story from that era, as well.22
He appears in Super too, but to make a bit broader an interpretation of this series’ concept, his past self didn’t show up, so I figured even this pattern of wild imaginings would be allowed. (laughs)
“I’m quitting.” It’s that sort of scene.
Just what was it that took place before he became a God of Destruction…?23
One of the contestants in the Afterlife Tournament. He’s a character who doesn’t really get much of a chance to shine, but I got the feeling that this was his last chance to bask in the spotlight (because of his name…).24
He’s the leader of the Coola Armored Squadron.
Apparently he’s from the same solar system as Jheese from the Ginyu Special Force!
I hear that Bonyu, who appears in the game Kakarot coming out this January, is also from Jheese’s system, which gets you wondering what kind of relationship the three of them might have had!25
She’s a character who appears in the game “Kakarot”, which is out now.
It seems she can use a Crusher Ball just like Jheece, who belongs to the same race!26
In Kakarot, we learn there is a drug called Animaline, which lets people turn into animals, but I wonder if this guy is just able by nature to turn into a human when he sees a full moon…27
Right now it seems that a crocodile is in the news, so here’s a contestant who doesn’t even have a name, who appeared for a single panel in volume 10 to get knocked out in the preliminary round… I hope he’s still alive and well!28
All of the executive officers of the Red Ribbon Army are cool, and I like them.29
The brothers who fought against Trunks and Goten at the 25th Tenka’ichi Budōkai. At any rate, I like their names.30
My editor told me that I should draw a mermaid since they’re popular, but when I drew her as I pleased, she ended up not resembling the original all that much. Let’s just call this one a doodle. Please forgive me.31
Goku’s older brother, who came to Earth in order to bring Goku over to his side. Bardock must certainly have never anticipated a future where both of his sons would be fighting each other…32
He transforms into a giant monkey in his new battle jacket! Maybe there was a battle like this one as well…33
Upa’s father, who defends the Karin Sanctuary. His aged appearance in volume 42 is so distinguished, I just love it.34
I like how, with a face like that, he’s called Mummy-“kun“. It was a pain just drawing his bandages, so wrapping them must have been even more of a chore…35
He’s Kaiō-sama‘s caretaker who you’ll know from the anime. He doesn’t appear in the comic, but maybe he’s just hiding somewhere!36
Toriyama-sensei‘s design illustrations didn’t include a back view of him, so I suppose the high-cut briefs were the anime staff being playful. It’s fantastic.
2021 is the Year of the Ox, so I drew Shisami, since he’s probably got a bovine motif going on. I hope the year will be a good one.37
Trunks’ broadsword is cool, but Murasaki’s katana is tasteful and cool, too.38
It feels like a gigantic Shenlong, and it’s so cool! Although, Super Shenlong is actually even huger by far.
Including animation, there are quite a few different Shenlongs, but each has its own charm, and I love them all.39
