Dragon Ball Wiki

The Tree of Might (神精樹 Shinseiju, lit. "Divine Spiritual Tree"), nicknamed the "Tree of Death" by King Kai, is a tree that grows the fruit of the Tree of Might. It appears in Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might.

Concept and Creation[]

The origin for the idea of the Tree of Might was from an Asian ginseng that producer Morishita Kouzou received as a souvenir. Hearing the Asian ginseng sucks up a field's nourishment to grow larger, he was given the idea for the Tree of Might.


The Tree of Might - Seed of Might

A Seed of Might

This tree is used to spawn the fruit of the Tree of Might after enough energy and life force is absorbed through the tree's roots, but like a regular plant, it needs a suitable atmosphere to survive (such as Earth's). As such, large amounts of energy are required to supply the fruit's growth; the tree essentially sucks the planet that the seed was planted on dry. King Kai said that only the Kai (Kami to be more exact, which is the plural for "gods" in Japanese; he actually says "Gods" in the English version), and Eternal Dragons are meant to eat the fruit. Because of all this, the Tree of Might is not considered evil but simply requires such a massive amount of energy to grow, few if any planets can sustain it without dying.

The extract from the tree can be used to revive long-since dead organisms. Turles used extract from the Tree of Might to revive Rasin and Lakasei, two members of the Beenz people, a long extinct and extremely intelligent alien species.[4]


In Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might, the Turles Crusher Corps. came to Earth and planted the Tree. It was destroyed by Goku when he used a Spirit Bomb that killed Turles.

Video Game Appearances[]

In Dragon Ball Heroes, the area in front of the Tree of Might is a battle stage.

In Xenoverse 2, the area in front of the Tree of Might is a battle stage and is featured prominently in Turles' training of the Future Warrior. It also appears during one of Lord Slug's lessons where he attempts to steal some of its fruit while the Future Warrior is sparring with Turles. Additionally, Turles appears in Conton City in order to determine if it will be a suitable location to plant the Tree of Might. However, he is forced to wait while the Turles Crusher Corps. finishes the soil analysis which will determine if the soil is suitable for growing it indicating the tree will not grow in certain types of soil. Old Kai briefly alludes to the Tree in his description of its fruit, confirming that the tree and its fruit are considered holy. He clarifies that only divine beings such as the Supreme Kais are allowed to eat its holy fruit. Additionally, Turles apparently supplies a Seed of Might to Towa in order to grow a modified strain of the fruit by exposing it to the Demon Realm which apparently corrupts the tree's holy fruit with dark evil energy augmenting its effects.
