Shugesh

Shugesh (パンブキン, Panbukin) is a Saiyan warrior within the Saiyan Army, and one of the members of Bardock's team along with Borgos, Fasha, and Tora. His name is a pun on "pumpkin", well fitting his overweight physique.

PersonalityEdit

Like the other members of his team Shugesh has a high degree of camaraderie with his teammates. He is also a ruthless and skilled fighter.

BiographyEdit

While battling in Great Ape form in Planet Kanassa, his cheek is cut by a Ki Blast from a Kanassan to which he retaliates by crushing the Kanassan under his foot. Later, he tackles another Kanassan after he hit Bardock in the

back of the neck. After the team destroyed Planet Meat's inhabitants, Shugesh is the first of his teamates to be killed by Dodoria and his elite under Frieza's orders.

Special abilitiesEdit

  • Flight - Like most Saiyans, it is safe to assume that Shugesh is capable of flight.

  • Great Ape - As with all Saiyans with a tail, Shugesh can transform into a Great Ape at the sight of a full moon (or another source of Blutz Waves). He used this ability while on Planet Kanassa.
  • Gigantic Stomp - Used as a Great Ape to kill the Kanassian who wound him.

TrivaEdit

  • In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, Shugesh's face is shown whenever Bardock does his Saiyan Spirit.
  • In Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru's original character design of Bardock's Team, Shugesh/Panbukin was drawn with a more Nappa-like structure. For example he was much taller and had a equal muscle mass. He was later changed into the "pumpkin" resembling figure he is now, for reasons that Akira Toriyama said that he wanted Saiyans to have more "distinguishing features" (Akira Toriyama drew the final draft of Bardock's team). The physical change may also be a pun of his name.
  • Like Bardock and Toma, Panbukin's original name given to him by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru was not completely changed in the final draft by Akira Toriyama.
