Tullece's name is, however, a pun on the English word "lettuce." With the name written out as ターレス Tāresu, if one rearranges the first two syllables, it becomes レタース, retāsu. Ignoring the elongated "a" sound, it becomes the accurate Japanese spelling of "lettuce," レタス retasu.


Tulllece looks very similar to Goku. The French dub of the film claimed that Tullece was actually Goku's long-lost twin brother. Nothing is actually stated in the movie or official Japanese publications to this extent. In the Dragon Ball Z: Anime Film Comics, it was stated that the reason why Tullece and Goku looked alike is because within the low-rank Saiyans, the facial patterns of each warrior were similar, thus making it easy to mark which Saiyans were low-castes.

Main article: The Tree of Might

The seed of the Shinseiju ("Tree of Godly Might," simply called the "Tree of Might" by FUNimation) has come into possession of the Saiyan Tullece. When the tree is planted, it saps the energy of the world in which the tree has taken root. Therefore, he seeks out a planet that he would be able to plant the seed on, so he can eat the Fruit of the Gods, and become exponentially stronger than before. With him, he has gathered a medley of ragtag thugs, all of whom are quite strong (stronger than the average Z-Senshi). Eventually, Tullece grabs a piece of fruit from the tree. This makes his strength dramatically increases. Even with a Kaioken at ten-times its normal strength and a Genki-Dama formed from what little remained of the planet's energy, Goku is unable to topple Tullece.

Tullece (ターレス Tāresu) is a character from the anime series Dragon Ball Z, known in the FUNimation English-dub version as "Turles", and "Tarles" in the spanish dub.
Tullece also explains that they (Goku and himself) should fight on the same side, since they have the same background; however, there is absolutely nothing in the dialogue that even remotely suggests that they are of any blood relation.
Tullece seems to have retained the powerup from the God's Fruit, although Goku and his comrades are much, much stronger than when they had last faced these foes.
