  • Dragon Ball reference (more details needed)
  • When Hijikata was kicked out of the patrol-cak by Gintoki, he likened himself to being abandoned just like Yamcha on Planet Namek
  • In response to the above Gintoki replied that Hijikata is Vegeta - another Dragon Ball reference (more details needed)
