Tarble (ターブル, Tāburu) is a pure-blooded Saiyan born on Vegeta and a member of the Saiyan Royal Family. Tarble is the youngest child of the former King Vegeta and the estranged younger brother of prince Vegeta.


Tarble was sent to distant star system at some undisclosed time by his father King Vegeta, because of his weak combat capability. Tarble at some point after married Gure. On August 18, Age 778 Tarble was subtly mentioned indirectly as being a potential candidate of being the sixth Saiyan that can be used for the Super Saiyan God ritual.[1][Note 1]


Tarble unlike various Saiyans seems to be more passive and courteous, which he showed when first reuniting with his elder brother Vegeta. Tarble's personality is much more gentle than his fellow Saiyans.



Tarble's full appearance.

Tarble has subtle resemblance to his elder brother's facial features. This includes various of his facial expression resemble that of his brother, Vegeta. His hair was a bit lighter than Vegeta, which was colored spiky hair with two bangs in the middle of his forehead. The hair is styled upwards towards his left shoulder.

Due, to being a Saiyan he has thickened eyebrows and monkey tail that each Saiyan from the 7th Universe possesses at birth. Tarble is much shorter than most Saiyans, where he is dwarfed by other pure-breed Saiyans such as Son Gokū and Vegeta. In his only appearance he sported an early version of the Fighting Jacket, with brown shoulder pads, white gloves and boots with the same color of brown on the tip of the boots, as well as a azure colored Scouter on his left eye.


Vegeta notes that Tarble was sent to another remote star, due to his weak combat capability. Although this being the case as a Saiyan Tarble was born with a tail giving him access to the Great Monkey Transformation. However he was no match for the likes of Avo and Cado who had the same Fighting Strength of Freeza.

Creation and Conception


  • Tarble and his brother's names are puns on the word Vegetable (ベジタブル, Bejitaburu).
  • Tarble is the only living Saiyan after the Saiyan Arc — even shown from other Universes — who has retained their tail.
