How Long Do Saiyans Live?
Many Dragon Ball fans ask this question all the time.
So today, we’re going to talk about the life-span of the Saiyans race and how long they live because when they age it seems like they could live for hundreds of years. I am sure we all would love to live a few years more like the Saiyans if that the case?
How Long Do Saiyans Live?
Saiyans like Goku and Vegeta can live up to 100 – 150 years. The reason for this is because they are a warrior race that thrives on the battle to state in top shape. After they reach 100 years old, their body starts to age quickly. So, Saiyans live a couple of years over the average human life.
Anyways, Saiyan’s age extremely slow compared to humans. If you compare them side-by-side with a human the human would age the same as a Saiyan.
However, a human would start aging faster and would turn into a very old person faster while the Saiyans age but look much younger
The Saiyan’s would still age but they’d look like they were in the 30s or 40s while a human would look 60 even though in reality they would be much much older.
The same thing with Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z, he is in his fifties and Vegeta still looks like he hasn’t aged at all.
By the way, why do they age so slowly?
Why Do Saiyan Age Slow?
The reason why Saiyans age super slow has to do with the fact they are a race of warriors. This requires their bodies to be young for long periods of time so that they can be in top shape in case of battle was to come.
So, even though they look younger for a long time it doesn’t mean that they can last for hundreds of years like the Namekians.
The Saiyans do age only a little bit longer than they should. They do get old fast but only when they hit a certain age they grow old much quicker.
I know from two interviews Toriyama did form Dragon Ball Super exciting guide. So in the first one, he said
“Saiyans are a warrior race so they age slowly once they reach an age suitable for fighting, and they maintain their strength for a long time. However, their life timespan is not much different from humans. Also when they reach a certain age, they rapidly grow frail“
The next interview he did he said.
“Saiyan’s life-span is much longer than humans. However, since they are a warrior race, many of them die in battles, and the average life span is that long.”
So, what that is telling us is that they do live longer than humans but not that much longer.
How Long Can A Saiyan Live For in Dragon Ball?
So, that begs the question again, How long do Saiyans live for? Well, the average human can live up to about 90 years old. However, Saiyans can easily outlast that age since now we know that Saiyans stay young until they are about 90-100 years old.
This is thanks to Dragon Ball Super, however, after that, they decay really fast. I would say that they last about 100 years.
I say this because probably after they reach 80-90 every year after that say they could decay 10 years for every year. That would definitely make them get old super fast.
So just like we have humans that can make it 100 years old, Saiyans will have some that reach 100 years old as well.
Any more than they seem like a stretch because they decay very fast. We could say 90 – 100 could be a good age for a Saiyan compared to humans/earthlings.
Anyway, that’s how long I think Saiyans would live. What do you think is the right age for Saiyan’s lifespan.
