Yesterday, I was reading one of Akira Toriyama’s works “Jaco Galactic Patrolman”, which is set between Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Battle of Gods / Dragon ball super, its a great read !
The manga is about the Galaxies worst cop Jaco. As expected from Toriyama, the Manga is full of fun and humor right off the bat but (without spoiling too much) within the pages of this book are some bits of information that could be important back story for Dragon Ball Super and maybe the whole Universe!
Within the pages of Jaco Galactic Patrol man is the mostly unknown mini story “Dragon Ball Minus”, which is a re-writing of the Goku / Bardock story. Within this story we see Jaco being , well … Jaco. An intergalactic idiot.
One thing Jumped out at me in Dragon Ball Minus, and it was this little guy!
Now, I had actually read this manga ages ago and picked it back a few days ago out of bordem long before Zen-oh (zeno, omni king … whatever you call him) was on our screens but I did not remember seeing this little guy. It seems we may have another member of the race Zen-oh comes from?!
Toriyama has been known to reuse characters throughout the entire Dragon Ball series, so this could be nothing but Jaco and his stories are (as far as I’m aware) canon (hate that term) , when ties to some of the crazy for shadowing Dragon Ball has been giving us since the start of Dragon Ball Super with the super dragon balls, for instance, being a great example of this as they were hinted at in episode 9 of dragon ball super and not revealed until ALONG time after!).
For me, breaking down stories within Dragon Ball (and Doctor who, which is back soon wooooo!) is something i very much love doing, so it will be interesting to see if this ever comes to anything but the fact Zeno-oh is the “omni – KING” , king being the operative term gives us a small clue that it is part of a bigger family that rules over the Omni-verse.
