Trivia

  • Tapion is never seen using his sword or fighting at all.
  • In the credits of 'Wrath of the Dragon', directly after Trunks recieves Tapion's sword, we see a montage of Future Trunks killing Frieza's men with his sword. This cannot be the same sword Trunks recieved at the end of the film however due to timeline complications.
  • Tapion bears a passing resemblance to the character Link from the Legend of Zelda series. They both wear tunics, belts and boots, have long ears that stick out at an angle from their head, carry swords and use magical ocarinas. They're also quite similar in character in that they're strong, silent warriors (although Tapion, unlike Link, talks).
  • Tapion's younger brother is shown at the beginning of the film fighting off Hildegarn. His name is Minosha
  • Tapion is rumoured to be a playable character in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2.
