The Dragon Ball franchise's Saiyans are some of the absolute strongest in any medium, with power levels on par with the strongest people in any universe in the multiverse. This requires a lot of different methods of training. While some, like the time they spend in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, make a lot of sense, there are things Saiyans do to train that are absolutely bizarre. We've compiled a list of fifteen weird ways members of the warrior race train in the popular series.
Although the Dragon Ball franchise has more or less abandoned this method of training despite its prominence in early installments of the series, Vegeta and Goku used to regularly push themselves to the brink of death. The reason they did this is that the Saiyan physiology and its recovering abilities results in a Zenkai Boost, which gives them the power to overcome that which almost killed them. Both Goku and Vegeta have repeatedly used this on purpose, with the former taking advantage of the healing properties of the Senzu Beans.
Check out the video below for more of the absolutely bizarre ways train in the Dragon Ball franchise, culminating in one that's closely linked to their relationships with other members of their family.
Although Dragon Ball: Super has already finished its run in Japan, dub-watching fans are still in the process of seeing what the popular franchise still holds. Super Dragon Ball Heroes is helping tide fans over in the short-term, but it's unknown at this time just when the series will return with new episodes, or if it will adapt the current "Galactic Prisoner Saga" that's going on in the manga.
