|“||Don't forget us, Kakarot!||„|
|~ Gine's last words to her son Kakarot.|
Gine is a posthumous character in the Japanese martial arts fantasy franchise Dragon Ball, appearing as a supporting character in the 2018 anime film Dragon Ball Super: Broly and a cameo flashback character in the 2015 manga series Dragon Ball Super.
She is voiced by Naoko Watanabe in the Japanese version of the movie, and by Emily Neves in the English version of the movie.
Gine was a woman of average height and slender build. She had a lighter-pale skin complexion, onyx eyes, and shaggy black hair reaching her shoulders. She wore a sleeveless black bodysuit and pink combat armor highlighted with green and outlined by white, in addition to purple armbands and white boots. Her armor also had a thigh-length hoop. Like all Saiyans in her respective universe, she naturally possesses a tail, which unlike most adult Saiyans, she lets sway freely rather than securing it around her waist. In Dragon Ball Fusions and Dragon Ball Heroes, she wears a dark green battle armor with magenta armbands.
Gine was a kind and caring woman, like her younger son and grandsons, and because of that, she was not cut out for fighting. Even more, she developed a genuine union of companionship with Bardock; a rare case for Saiyans, who normally do not develop male-female relationships except for breeding purposes.
However, despite her gentleness, she is shown to be protective toward her younger son, as she briefly argues with Bardock about sending Kakarot to Earth as an infiltration newborn, knowing it is dangerous. She is also shown to be proud of Raditz for being assigned to invade a planet with the Saiyan Prince Vegeta, showing that she loves both her sons.
In Dragon Ball Fusions, she nearly reveals herself to be Kid Goku's mother when she encounters him in the Timespace Rift, though reconsiders and decides to keep their relationship as mother and son from him much like her husband does when he meets Kid Goku. She is shown to stand up for her fellow Saiyans when she overhears some fighters plotting to crush a Saiyan before they can transform into a Super Saiyan and become a threat, however she ends up being badly injured.
Her refusal to stand by while these men were plotting to kill a fellow Saiyan is quite similar to her son Goku, who is well known for his wiliness to protect innocent people and animals. After Goku comes to her rescue, she worries about him when he is attacked by Yamma while asking if she is alright, though she is shocked when Goku stops the attack. Seeing how strong he has become, Gine decides she wants to do something to help her son while noting that Bardock would probably tease her for being overly sentimental.
Like her husband, she has no problem referring to her son by his adopted name, Goku, though she does call him by his birth name when she first meets him.
