The Fruit of the Tree of Might (神精樹の実 Shinseijuu no Mi; lit. "Fruit of the Gods") appears in the movie Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might. The fruit is a light orange color, and looks similar to that of the durian fruit.
This fruit is spawned by 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 or Namek's). As such, large amounts of energy are required to supply the fruit's growth, the tree essentially sucks the life out of the planet that the seed was planted on. North Kai said that only Gods are meant to eat the fruits. Despite all this, the Tree of Might is not truly evil but simply requires such a massive amount of energy to grow, few, if any planets can sustain it without dying.
This fruit gives whomever consumes it a massive power increase. Amond mentions that with the use of the tree's fruits, they might even be able to defeat Frieza. Turles eats this fruit during his battle with Goku, and quickly gains a strong advantage. Goku attempts to attack Turles with repeated Kaio-ken attacks, but even this is nowhere near enough to bring the evil Saiyan down. Goku eventually spawns a Spirit Bomb after absorbing the energy of the tree (as the tree is essentially a living thing, energy can be gathered from it for a Spirit Bomb), and successfully kills Turles and the tree along with him.
Video game appearancesEdit
When playing as Turles in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, before battle, he will be seen holding a piece of the fruit. He can also eat a piece of fruit during battles which makes him instantly go to MAX Power. It gives him an increase in strength, speed, ki, and defense for a limited time (further shortened if he uses a Blast 1, Blast 2, or his Ultimate Blast), as well as regenerate 1 health bar. The fruit of the Tree of Might also makes a similar appearance in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2.
