Default Shouldn't Vegeta's tail grow back?

After he gets it cut off by Yajirobe? Because i thought Piccolo pulls Gohan's tail off or something and it just grows back. And also Gohan's tail should grow back, unless it is only lost if the tail is cut off while in Oozaru form. But that could have come in handy for them on Namek, because Vegeta might have been more powerful than Frieza in Oozaru form the last time he fights him.

Well its believed by many fans that only Saiyan children are able to regrow their tales and the ability is lost sometime during the aging process. Either way Vegeta's oozaru transformation would be no use to them on Namek because the planet has three suns.

All the tails should grow back, but none of them do. Goten and trunks should have tails but they don't.

Well, after his battle on earth he went to one of Freiza's planets. When he came out of the healing chamber the doctor noted that his tail was gone and he replied that it would grow back. It didn't, of course.
I'd have to agree with the kids can grow theory.
As for Trunks and Goten, I'm sure they took special surgical precautions at birth. Seriously, kids are hard enough to deal with.

Well then why didn't Gohan's tail grow back? And couldn't Vegeta still use that ball of light or whatever, even with the 3 suns on Namek? The thing he uses to make himself transform against Goku? I'm sure they could still see it if they positioned it properly. Also, there should have been an Oozaru battle at some point in DBZ.

Why wouldn't they need the tail? It's the source of a saiyans power, and multiplies their Power Level 10x when transformed. How is that not helpful?

Because SSJ originally increased base power like 50 times?

Well i meant before they were SSJ, but still, i don't think it's ever indicated that they couldn't transform while in SSJ form. Though i don't know if that would produce a different result or whatnot. So base power x50 then that power x10 maybe?

No, Vegeta and Nappa rid themselves of that weakness, remember?

Akira Toriyama said he just forgot to draw tails on them. That's the reason they don't have tails.

As for Vegeta, I would have to agree that they lose the ability to grow their tails back when they get older.

Not only do Goten and Trunks not have a tail, but neither does Bulla. Broly doesn't have one either. But in Bio Broly when they're cloning him, before Broly turns into the Swamp Thing, he has a tail. I don't know about Vegeta's tail, except to say it's a plothole. If I remember correctly, they removed Gohan's tail permanently after Vegeta and Nappa. Gohan having a tail in the first Cooler movie is another plothole.

Well the movies are non-cannon, obviously. So plotholes can be expected.

Broli had a tail. You can see it when he's in the birth chamber.
Once again... if your child is super-powered and YOU are not-so-super-powered, you want to do things like cut off his tail (or give him a kryptonite teddy bear or whatever). Especially when that child is already born with ten or a hundred times or more strength than you.

And especially ESPECIALLY when that child is born a homicidal maniac.

Apparently there are either two theories we can go by.

A - When a tail is CUT, not pulled off, it does not grow back.
B - It didn't grow back after the Saiyan Arc possibly because Vegeta got it permanently removed by Kami.

(As for these, A is probably the correct one.)

Also, Bulma states in the manga that they permanently removed Trunks' tail, so we can safely asume (spelt wrong on purpose) that they did the same with Goten's tail as well. Akira Toriyama did say that he forgot to draw tails on them, so that is the technical answer as well as the story based one.

There are plotholes no matter what. Non-canon, canon. DB, DBZ, DBGT, movies. Doesn't matter.

Agreed. But there are far more plotholes in the non-cannon parts than in the Canon series.

There are very few plot holes in the manga, and most involve dates.
