After Tora was mortally wounded by Dodoria and his men, Bardock finds his comrade among the rubble. After Tora's death, Bardock ties the blood-stained band to his head and heads off to face Frieza directly, as if his fallen comrades were still fighting alongside him. The headband is last seen floating through space after the destruction of Planet Vegeta.
Video game appearancesEdit
The headband is worn by Bardock in all the video games he appears in. In Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, Bardock's headband is also feautured on custom characters with Bardock's hairstyle, both normal and Super Saiyan.
- When the headband is covered in blood, it is similar to John Rambo's dark red headband from the Rambo movie series.
- The headband that Goku Jr. wears looks very similar to Bardock's headband.
