The Moon before being destroyed by Jackie Chun.

The Moon (, Tsuki) is a celestial object revolving around Earth in the Dragon Ball universe, just as its real world counterpart. Its significance is that it has made some Saiyans transform into their Great Ape forms, and it has been destroyed twice and recreated once.


[edit] Role of moons in the Dragon Ball series

[edit] Prior to Dragon Ball

Son Goku is known to have transformed into a Great Ape and killed Grandpa Son Gohan, to which he has no recollection.

[edit] Boss Rabbit

In Dragon Ball, Goku is shown to place the Monster Carrot and his men on the Moon after defeating them by using his Power Pole to transport them.

[edit] Castle Pilaf

Goku transformed into a Great Ape upon seeing the Moon when trapped within Castle Pilaf. Puar had to cut his tail so that Goku could turn back to normal.

[edit] 21st Tenkaichi Tournament

During the 21st Tenkaichi Tournament, Jackie Chun (Muten Roshi) destroyed the Moon with the Kamehameha so that Goku could turn back to normal after his transformation.

[edit] The Moon revived

It was not mentioned, but the Moon must have been recreated during Goku's training in Kami's Lookout since Goku mentions in the 23rd Tenkaichi Tournament that his tail was removed so that the Moon could be recreated. The Moon is also seen later, indicating that it has been recreated.

[edit] Gohan's metamorphosis

Earth's moon before it was destroyed by Piccolo.

Son Gohan first transformed into a Great Ape upon seeing the Moon during his training with Piccolo. To stop it, Piccolo had to destroy the Moon. After this, the Earth's moon was never shown again.

[edit] The moon's image

Goku's Attack Ball projected the image of a moon which again made Gohan transform into a Great Ape. When Piccolo destroyed the Attack Ball, the projector was destroyed.

[edit] Moons of other planets

Most moons or satellites of other planets have been shown whenever the planet was shown, and without much significance. The moons of Vegeta and of Kanassa, however, were important as the Saiyans had used them to transform.
