"Aren't you Saiyans a warrior race? I'd love to see for myself just how strong you really are. Still you're nothing compared to the almighty Race of Hera."
Bojack in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

The Race of Hera (ヘラ星人 Hera-seijin) is the race that lived on planet Hera. It is the race of Bojack and the Galaxy Soldiers, of which they are the only survivors.[1]

Overview

Zangya and Bido, two members of the Race of Hera

It is unknown if all the members of this humanoid race sport teal-colored skin and orange hair like Bojack's crew (note that in the original design by Toriyama, all of Bojack's crew had green skin and red hair)[2]. Some of them have the ability to transform, like the Saiyans with their Super Saiyan transformation.

The name of the Race of Hera was first mentioned in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden 2, when Goku asks King Kai if he knows Bojack. King Kai responds that Bojack and his henchmen are the last survivors of the Race of Hera and were locked inside a star by the Kais. With their deaths the Race of Hera is now extinct. In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Bojack himself uses the name in reference to his race when talking to a Saiyan Future Warrior.

Full Power

Main article: Full Power Hera-seijin Members of the Race of Hera have the ability to take on a form that greatly increases their power. The form is taken when the Race of Hera user concentrates their ki.[3] In this form, the user's hair goes red, their skin goes lime-green, and their muscles increase dramatically. This form is first displayed by Kogu in his battle against Future Trunks, and later by Bojack when he powers up against Vegeta.

Trivia

  • In the movie Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound, with the exception of Zangya, the environment becomes exceptionally dark temporarily whenever a member of the Race of Hera is either killed or critically wounded by a physical attack (i.e. Quiet Rage).
  • In the FUNimation dub, all male members of the Race of Hera spoke with a slight Caribbean accent. Zangya was the only member to speak with no discernable accent.
  • Because of their deaths by Gohan (with the exception of Zangya and Kogu, since the former was killed by Bojack and the latter was killed by Future Trunks), effectively brought about the Race of Hera's extinction.
