We do not insult anyone by saying that dragonball it has many inconsistencies. Story arcs contradict or are wrong in many situations. That does not make us love the work of Akira Toriyama less.
We recently talked about vegeta hair color. That reddish color with which he appears at the beginning of Dragon Ball Z throws the characteristic that says that all Saiyans have black hair on the ground.
The explanation for this particularity, no matter how mystical it is related to the atmosphere of the planet he was on, is that the anime’s illustrators made a mistake and did not consult Akira Toriyama before drawing. Then they accommodated him and Vegeta ends up with his typical black color in his hair.
In this sense comes another color inconsistency, exposed by the people of 3D Games. Piccolo’s blood -red at first and purple later- confuses the fandom of the series. What happened to the liquid that runs through the namek’s veins?
The color in Piccolo’s blood
The official fandom site blames Dragon Ball Z Kai, but the reality is that in Toei Animation’s original series, the one that came out in 2D was the one that changed Piccolo’s blood color in the first place.
The character that appears in the last arc of Dragon Ball, that same Piccolo who fights Goku in the final of the martial arts, bleeds red. The same one that faces Raditz at the beginning of Z goes with the same blood color.
But when the fight against Nappa comes, they change him. It is said that it was to counteract the censorship of television, but the rest of the characters continue to bleed the same.
Akira Toriyama says that he doesn’t know the color. He only explains that he initially thought of Piccolo as a demon and the course of the stories put him as aliens. So, it is nothing less than one of the contradictions in history.
