Kamehameha, the Inspiration for the Manga Dragon Ball

Akira Toriyama, the creator of the manga Dragon Ball, was inspired by the Hawaiian king of the same name. In fact the character Turtle (sometimes called Turtle Hermit) is often spotted wearing Hawaiian-style shirts. The name is also a play on words for kamé means turtle and Ha means wave. A US submarine also bears the name: the le USS Kamehameha.
