Background/History: This is the Saiyajin Were-Monkey form. It can be assumed only when the Saiyajin in question see a full moon, although some Saiyajins have used their chi powers to produce moonlike effects to force this change. The exact size of the monkey form in the manga is hard to determine, but 60' to 70' looks to be about right.
Personality/Motivation: The Were-Monkey form is assumed when the Saiyajin wants to wreck havoc on a colossal scale. The mentality of the Were-Monkey seems to be mostly angry, although the Were-Monkey may retain some Psychological Limitations from the "normal" Saiyajin form or may have Psychological Limitations such as "Seeks Combat," "Wants/Likes To Fight," or "Overriding Desire To Destroy".
Powers/Tactics: The Were-Monkey's main weapons are its great size and strength, which can be used to smash nearly anything to rubble. The Were-Monkey can can also launch a massively destructive chi blast from the mouth, which will detonate with the force of a small bomb. It should be noted that while many of the more powerful Dragon Ball Z characters, especially any Super-Saiyajin characters, will rapidly out do this write-up in terms of pure points, the Were-Monkey's raw power is not to be sniffed at.
This character sheet is very easy for a GM to customize. Additional movement powers (like Swimming and Superleap) can be written in, as well as minor alterations in defenses and chi powers.
The resistant DEF of the Were-Monkey is quite low. This is due to two reasons. One, both Goku's and Vegita's tails were lopped off rather easily in the course of the series, and giving the monkey and sort of high resistant DEF wouldn't have fit with the scenes shown. Second, most attacks in Dragon Ball Z are normal attacks, not killing attacks, so large amounts of resistant defense aren't really needed.
Appearance: The Were-Monkey is a huge ape-like form standing over 60' tall that looks to resemble a baboon. The fur is dark brown or black, with a long tail and a snout full of sharp teeth.
Designer's Notes: The Were-Monkey was based partially off of the Giant Ape in the HERO System Bestiary.
