Dragon Ball Super hasn’t shied apart from expanding its franchise’s knowledge, and fans have been expecting for it to solve one thing in particular. Fans have long wondered about the real story behind the first Super Saiyan God for a while now. And, gratitude to Akira Toriyama, fans have an answer for the persistent question now.
Recently, the creator of Dragon Ball sat down with Saikyo Jump for an exclusive interview. It was there Toriyama began about the history of the first Super Saiyan God whom Freeza trembled, and Beerus dreamt about.
“Very long past, before Planet Vegeta was the Saiyans’ planet, there was a man named Yamoshi who had an honest heart despite being a Saiyan. He and his five companions started a revolt, but he was cornered by combatants and became a Super Saiyan for the initial time, though his transformation and fearsome fighting style shocked the other Saiyans,” Toriyama said, confirming Yamoshi as the legendary SSJ who was referenced in Battle of Gods.
“Outnumbered, Yamoshi finally wore himself out and was defeated, but this was only the start of his legend. Afterwards, Yamoshi’s spirit roamed in continuous search of six Noble-hearted Saiyans, trying a new savior: Super Saiyan God.”
According to Toriyama, Beerus decided to search out the Super Saiyan God because he “picked up information about Yamoshi’s vision in his prophetic dream.” Tales about Yamoshi have also abounded as they got written in the Namekian book of legends as the Namekian elder who wrote it “sympathized with Yamoshi’s spirit.”
There’s no difficulty Yamoshi is the man who covered the road for Goku to go Super Saiyan God, and the Universe 7 hero shortly saw Yamoshi when he first touched the power. When Goku underwent the Super Saiyan God ceremony, an outline of Yamoshi appeared before him to pass on the intense light. Goku and Vegeta have after inherited Yamoshi’s will, and the pair could just be the start. Fighters like Caulifla have indicated their interest in going Super Saiyan God, and the feisty heroine might only be able to do it.
