Femme Fatale Launch

Femme Fatale Launch

Let’s celebrate Launch’s birthday

One of the most intriguing characters from the Dragon Ball series is the femme fatale called Launch. She has a strange disorder that causes her to switch between two different personalities each time she sneezes. She is a sort of a female version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. When she is ‘nice Launch’ she is a sweet blue-haired pure-hearted woman. ‘Bad Launch’ however, is an angry, trigger-happy, blonde that just loves to commit crimes for money and responds with gunfire when she is angry. The two personalities never remember the actions of the other one, nor anything they said.

Launch Trivia

Her disorder is very similar to a condition known as dissociate identity disorder. Then it is quite possible that in the ‘Dragon Ball universe’ her condition is undiagnosed, or unknown, or a very unique form of this disorder.
Her change from Good Launch to Bad Launch is very similar to the Super Saiyan transformations! Both the Super Saiyan form and Bad Launch’s transformations have them ending up with blonde hair, except of course the Saiyan form is voluntary and well’ Launch becomes Bad Launch when she sneezes. Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama also mentioned the similarities between her and the Saiyan’s transformations when he was asked why she is absent in Dragon Ball Z and the series thereafter. At first, during Dragon Ball Z he just forgot about her, but then he thought that her changing into Bad Launch with the blonde hair may cause confusion to some of the fans.

Here is a video where Launch transforms and shoots at Mister Roshi, Goku, and Krillin. Please follow our link: http://bit.ly/Launch-attacks-Mister-Roshi-Goku-Krillin
