Yamcha is one of the most unlucky characters of the Dragon Ball series. Initially, he appears to be an honorable warrior and loyal friend. However, throughout the series, Yamcha seems to be relegated to a secondary role, especially when it comes to his personal love life.
Yamcha has been an important character since the early days of the Dragon Ball franchise. He is shown to be a skilled warrior and lover of Bulma. Their relationship seems solid. However, the situation changed dramatically when characters like Vegeta appeared.
In almost every battle that Yamcha participated in, he lost. Author Akira Toriyama almost cut Yamcha’s role to make room for other characters like Gohan, Vegeta or future Trunks. While Yamcha fades away, Vegeta gradually establishes himself as a powerful warrior and even captures Bulma’s heart.
After being beaten down by monsters, even his long-time girlfriend Bulma was captured by the Saiyan prince, Yamcha was clearly in trouble.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot – the famous video game retelling the Dragon Ball Z storyline, has given fans the answer to why Yamcha and Bulma broke up. It turns out that Yamcha “didn’t know” that feelings were gradually developing between Bulma and Vegeta. Innocence is also a crime, and from that unknown, Dragon Ball has a new character, the son of Bulma and Vegeta – Trunks. .
On the other hand, Yamcha’s romance with Glass in Super Dragon Ball Heroes looks promising. However, Glass is revealed to be underage by the standards of her race, making the relationship impractical.
This is just another example of Yamcha’s bad luck in love affairs. This raises a question: “Is Yamcha worthy to find true love?”.
First of all, it is necessary to consider Yamcha as a multifaceted character. Not only is he physically strong compared to earthlings, but he also has a good personality. In addition to being a brave fighter, he is also a famous athlete on the baseball field. These make him the ideal candidate for a lasting love.
If other characters like Goku, Krillin and Bulma… can all find their soulmate, then Yamcha can do it too. Hopefully author Akira will open up Yamcha’s storyline a bit more to find him a life partner.
