It was always thought that all Saiyan’s were the same. Battle thirsty warriors who cared for nothing but power and a good fight. However, it seems as if that stereotype is actually, reserved for the majority of their males.
The latest Dragon Ball Super manga focused on the events that took place 40 years ago on the Cerelian planet. At this time, Frieza’s army and the Saiyan’s attacked. It was at this time that we got to see Bardock in action.
It was here that we got to see a flashback within a flashback, with Bardock thinking about his family back at home. It was here that Gine, Goku’s mother, explained in frustration her irritation of Saiyan men showing only care for battle and little interest in the family.
Her pointing out that this was an issue with the men, suggests that she herself and other Saiyan women, thought differently about family. Therefore, changing the canon view of all Saiyan’s being nothing but killing machines.
