Dragon Ball FighterZ is almost here and we’re extra pumped after playing the exhilarating beta. Dragon Ball is a series that’s full of history and backstory, and none is more important and prevalent than the story of the Saiyan species. For the longest time, many people thought that Goku was a regular old Earthling. Being an anime, having a monkey tail wasn’t terrible odd, nor was the fact that he had insane strength for a toddler. It was revealed over time though that he was in fact a Saiyan, an alien species who thrived on warfare and conquering planets. They had an intense past with infighting between them that cost them their first planet.

With a ten year long siege on a planet that was home to King Tuffle, the Saiyans eventually founded a new home and named it Planet Vegeta after their king. It wasn’t long until the emperor Frieza got worried about the power of the Saiyans as a whole and, under the suggestion of Lord Beerus, the God of Destruction who debuted in Dragon Ball Super, Frieza ultimately destroyed the planet and most of the species save for four Saiyans who were off world including Raditz, Nappa, Vegeta and Kakarot, better known to us as the one and only Goku. Goku, initially sent to destroy Earth, grew up loving the planet after an accident and would eventually destroy Frieza after transforming into a Super Saiyan, the first being to do so in almost one thousand years.
