Dragon Ball franchise is getting more and more interesting every day. Over the course, we have seen Yamcha getting two scars on his face. The first scar is a curved line over his eye.
The second one is an X-shaped cut on the opposite cheek. Yamcha has had these scars throughout the entire franchise. Here’s everything you need to know about his scars!
Dragon Ball: Yamcha and Goku’s Older Days!
Yamcha is one of Goku’s oldest friends and an original Z-warrior. He was one of Goku’s best allies before Goku began fighting with Vegeta, Gohan, and Piccolo.
Yamcha’s scars are one of his most peculiar characteristics. His scars are like his trademarks. He was not having these scars through most of the original Dragon Ball. So, when did the scars first appeared?
We first saw Yamcha’s scars when 18-year Goku first arrived at the Kame House to reunite with his friends. This was in the Dragon Ball’s final story arc.
Yamcha never revealed why or exactly when he got these scars. Before the reunion, the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament was gang on. It was during this tournament when Goku battled Piccolo for the first time and became engaged to Chi-Chi.
How did he get those scars?
During these Dragon Ball’s hidden three years, Goku, Tien, Krillin, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu spent their time training for the tournament. Said this, we can say that Yamcha got his scars while preparing for the tournament.
It is possible that Yamcha got his scars while preparing with someone who carried a sword. This proves Yamcha’s training’s intensity and dedication.
The scars have gradually become an important part of Yamcha’s look. These scars helped reinvent the character and present him in a new way. When the franchise started, Yamcha was different than how he is now. He was also known as the ‘Desert Bandit’.
Yamcha was a sword-wielding martial artist clad in a green and a yellow outfit. Yamcha was known as a shy person. He usually got nervous around girls and never could talk to them.
Now, Yamcha is an entirely different person. He is now seen as a Playboy. He has left his sword, his classic costume, and his Desert Bandit days long behind him.
Dragon Ball is undoubtedly one of the world’s most famous and loved manga franchise. The franchise has a huge fan base all over the world.
We will bring more insights very soon. Until then, stay tuned and keep reading for all the latest updates!
