Dragon Ball Wiki

"A set of Saibaman seeds and growth liquid. These diminutive warriors sprout from the ground when their seeds are planted in soil and then watered with the growth liquid. Their power level is based on the quality of the soil in which they are planted."
— Z-Encyclopedia Summary in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

The Saibamen Set is a bottle containing set of seeds and growth liquid used to sprout Saibamen. Originally used by Nappa during the Vegeta Saga.


Saibamen were originally developed by a Saiyan scientist as weaponized lifeforms that could be grown on the battlefield using the Saibamen Set which is a bottle containing seeds and a liquid used to rapidly grow the Saibamen once planted.


The Saibamen Set is first shown being used by Nappa during the Attack of the Saiyans where he plants the six seeds then pours the growth liquid causing the Saibamen to burst from the ground ready to fight.

Though the seeds were used by both the Saiyan Army and Frieza Force to grow Saibamen, Nappa's is the only use of the set actually shown.

Video Game Appearances

In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 in Fateful Brothers, Raditz also has a Saibamen Set which he uses when Piccolo proves to be too strong. Unfortunately, the Saibamen ends up turning on Raditz leading it to self-destruct causing Raditz to lose his memory leading him becoming a better person after getting to know his brother and nephew.

In Dragon Ball Legends, various Frieza Force members and Combatants utilize Saibamen Sets during the Tournament of Time as there are no rule prohibiting their use. In addition to members of the Frieza Force, Nappa uses his set to produce Saibamen and Mercenary Tao is able to acquire a Saibamen Set from one of the Frieza Force members.

In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, the Saibamen Set was named. Unlike the manga and anime, Nappa throws the bottle to the ground instead of planting them and pouring the liquid. The Saibamen Set has an entry in the items section of the Z-Encyclopedia which explains how Saibamen were developed by Saiyan scientists for the Frieza Force.
