Saiyans are sapient humanoids, a strong warrior race from the Japanese animated series Dragon Ball Z.

A hugely popular and successful manga and anime series, Dragon Ball Z helped bring Japanese animation to the world's attention. Saiyans are an endangered species in the series, and most of them are named after vegetables.

In Japanese, “Yasai” means vegetable. By rearranging “Yasai,” the makers of Dragon Ball created the word “Saiya.” Therefore, the names of all full-blooded Saiyans are a take on various vegetables. Saiyan vegetable names take inspiration from a range of foods including spinach, carrot, broccoli, cabbage, leek, beets, cauliflower, and pumpkin.

The first character to achieve the Super Saiyan form at a young age in the Dragon Ball manga series is Gohan. Gohan has a prominent role in the series; he is the first son of Goku and Chi-Chi and he is also named The Great Saiyaman and The Golden Warrior.
