Appearance[edit | edit source]
Akemi's physical appearance changes throughout Dragon Ball Z, due to the fact that the series starts out with her as a child and ends when she is fully grown and with a child of her own. But Akemi's appearance remains relatively the same. According to Vocado, Akemi's facial features greatly resembles that of her mother. She has pale skin complextion, waist-length black hair and black eyes.
When Akemi is first introduced, she initially wore an RIT-issued Saiyan battle armor with the red Vegeta Royal Family Crest on the left side of her breastplate, white boots and black kneepads.
As a teenager, Akemi has been noted by others to be very beautiful. She is tall for her age with a slender frame yet athletic physique. Her expressions are much more stern, serious, and sometimes cocky.
