The scenes in which characters cry are not often seen in "Dragon Ball." Incredibly, despite his great pride, Vegeta is the character to shed tears the most throughout the series. The prince of the Saiyans cried on numerous occasions, mostly out of frustration. However, the most memorable was during his speech on Planet Namek as he was killed at the hands of Frieza.

On the other hand, Goku has never cried despite having experienced tragedy, such as watching his loved ones die - including his children, his wife, and all his friends.


However, recently, a small drawing was revealed by Shin Youngsoon, one of the animators of "Dragon Ball."

Official drawing

In this sketch, we see Goku on his knees, hurt and his eyes do not have pupils. The most striking thing about the drawing is that we see Goku crying, which is amazing considering this is something we have never witnessed from the Saiyan.

Why does Goku cry?

If this is a frame of the animation, we believe that it might take place prior to the new transformation of Goku. The motive for his tears could be due to an event that would damage Goku sentimentally like never before.

From my perspective, I believe that universe 7 will disappear, otherwise, we would not see an event capable of making our hero react in this way. Some believe that Gohan will die in the tournament, but this is unlikely as killing an opponent is not allowed. Similarly, I do not know what will happen in the future of the tournament and if its rules will change.


Characters that have cried in the anime

As we mentioned at the beginning, there have not been many main characters who have cried in "Dragon Ball." The most remembered are Vegeta in the Frieza saga and in the film fusion reborn. Then we have the legendary scene in which Gohan, after the death of android 16, unleashed the Super Saiyan 2 transformation. Once transformed, Gohan was shown with tears in his eyes, which denoted fury and impotence.

The funny thing about this is that every time these characters have cried, historical events for the anime have transpired shortly thereafter.

Because of this rarity, I believe that it could be epic and exciting to see Goku cry and then obtain his new transformation.

It should be clarified that this is simply a theory based on this piece of animation and personal deductions, so it must be taken with discretion.

This was the most recent news from the world of "Dragon Ball." If more information is revealed, I will publish it immediately. For now, watch the video below to see the progress of the upcoming chapter of “Dragon Ball Super," which comes to us through some leaked information about this saga.
