Tails?

Post by The PyroKitie »

Yes, it's me again. You should all wish I never bought those season one and two of DBZ. *giggles*

Anyways, another silly question from the Pyro:

Saiyan Tails.

So what's the deal with them? I know the basics:
1.) A form of balance like most tails for just about any animal.
2.) The whole transformation for Saiyans.
4.) They make fun little belts.
5.) When in the Ape form it makes a good weapon if they can control themselves.

Now...what I'm wondering is what the rate/range is for it growing back. To me it seems that if the tail is cut off before they hit around human male puberty age then it can grow back. Also, in GT I remember that they forced Goku's back out.

So, the tails basically can only grow back when they are young, but if they are older then it can't grow back and that's why Vegeta get's so ticked off when his is cut off by Yajirobe...right?

I know, I ask all the silly, unimportant questions...but it's fun for me. ^^

Maybe. But here's my theory. Because the ape forms weren't needed anymore in the later sagas of DBZ, Akira Toriyama didn't bother having them grow back. As for the whole pulling out the tail thing in GT, maybe they did it for comedic effect, or maybe adults Saiyans really can't grow their tails back naturally when cut off.

Wow, I didn't think anyone would actually reply. >.<

What I mean is the creators were just doing what was writen out and most of the time don't go into as much detail as the fans like to. The fans want everything from blood type to family trees, things that I know I don't go into detail with when I write stories but things that my friends want to know when they read them.

*shrugs* I wish I had a tail...

Actually...no it doesn't. Cause Gohan had his removed and it grew back on it's own. If just ripping or cutting it off is enough to make it not come back, then Gohan's shouldn't of. I really think it's the puberty thing. After a certain age it just can't come back. Cause in that scene, Vegeta is older than average puberty age (at least for a human, pretty sure for a Saiyan too). If it could re-grow then they wouldn't have to reconstruct it...and Goku's tail doesn't grow back on it's own either once he's older...

I just ask silly questions. Feel free to ignore me at any moment cause I can assure you this will not be the last thread I make like this. >.<

Yeah, but then wouldn't that picture help prove your point?

Well, it helps prove that tails don't simply grow back.

Not really, all it does is say that it can't be reconstructed, not regrown, it might be able to be regrown, it could just take some time to do so.
Yeah, you were right about me, but can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me? in the choir, I saw our sad Messiah he was bored and tired of my laments

Actually, if I remember right, they just don't grow back once they've hit a certain age, I guess. Puberty would probably be right.

They have tails because saiyan are beings that is compared with animal, specifically monkey. ;) That's why they have the monkey form. The tails are just used for designs. They dont need such balance using their tail because they can even fly. Creature with tails are usually having longer arms and or crawling creatures.
