It has been almost 32 years since Dragon Ball first began, and coming up in the next few episodes we will see our first ever-female Super Saiyan.
In a sneak peak at the end of Dragon Ball Super episode 75, fans watched a short glimpse of what appeared to be The Legendary Super Saiyan however, it was not Broly and instead a completely new character, a new female Saiyan.
Meaning the concept of the Legendary Super Saiyan will be canon but more importantly, she will become the first ever female Super Saiyan, and its about time we finally had one.
Many believed when Dragon Ball GT first began in 1996 that we will see the daughters of Gohan and Vegeta, become the first female Super Saiyan’s.
Although as we soon discovered, this for reasons that are unknown, would never happen.
Bulla who was Vegeta’s daughter, seemed to be more like her mother in Bulma rather then her father, and so was never really seen fighting in the series.
While as for Pan, Gohan’s daughter, she seemed to be quite the opposite; inheriting Gohan’s potential and Videl’s love for battle.
But for some reason along with all the other disappointments of the series, we never got to see much progression from her, and so she never was seen transforming into a Super Saiyan.
As a result some fans started to believe this was because Pan was only one quarter of a Saiyan, and so that’s why she was unable to transform into the warrior of legend.
However, this rumour couldn’t be more untrue, as we see in the last episode of GT and the GT movie (A Heros’ Legacy) Pan’s grandchild Goku jr, being capable of transforming into a Super Saiyan.
Also both Goten and Trunks were capable of transforming at the ages of six and seven, while Goku jr and Vegeta jr were also roughly the same age when they reached that level, so why wasn’t Pan capable of it at almost double their age? Well we will never really know.
One thing we do know is that she was never seen transforming into the warrior of legend, as was the same for Bulla.
Luckily GT is no longer canon, and so that all technically didn’t happen according to the official storyline, and so Pan may yet be able to transform into a Super Saiyan in Dragon Ball Super, in the future that is, as she is still too young.
Although, its not as if we haven’t seen any strong characters in the Dragon Ball series, Bulma, Videl, Chi-Chi and Launch aren’t very strong however, Zangya from the Bojack movie and Android 18 aren’t girls who you can mess with.
But none of them are Saiyan and so we have never seen a female Super Saiyan to date (no Videl doesn’t count), so this unknown woman from an unknown universe will officially be the first, and its about time.
However, there has been fan made Dragon Ball series’s such as Dragon Ball Multiverse, that have shown female Super Saiyan’s, with fans loving the idea.
But we shouldn’t forget that this woman coming in Dragon Ball Super that we know little about, is no ordinary Super Saiyn.
In fact she the first canon Legendary Super Saiyan as well and as a result, Dragon Ball fans have been going crazy all week waiting to find out more information about the first ever female Super Saiyan, in the upcoming tournament.
