Not that the set up really lasted long in the ever-evolving series, but initially, Dragon Ball was a spoof of the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, aka Saiyuki, with Bulma as the monk Xuanzang, Goku as the Monkey King, well, Goku, Oolong as the half-pig monster Zhu Bajie and Yamcha as the sand-dwelling bandit Sha Wujing. In a new MegaHouse Petit Chara figure set it's Team Seven's turn to take the famous roles.
Of course, Naruto is the monkey king, Sasuke is the sand-bandit, Sakura is the pig-monster and Kakashi is the monk. The four 7cm Petit Chara Land NARUTO Shippuden - Nanahan de Tenjiku Mezasuttebayo! Saiyuki Hen figures sell for 4,860yen.
