What if Bardock missed the destruction of Planet Vegeta? What if he arrived during Goku's fight with Raditz? Heads are gonna roll as the. Consistent with Raditz's quote in the chapter Kakarrot of the Dragon Ball manga as well as Frieza's when he first met Goku in the chapter The Ultimate Battle. Goku's family in Dragon Ball has some a hidden secrets bubbling under the surface — just a like a real family. Gohan is a foil to Goku, Goten is a foil to both , and Bardock is essentially the antithesis of Goku. Meet Gine!.

Hagunemnon What if Bardock missed the destruction of Planet Vegeta? What if he arrived during Goku's fight with Raditz? Heads are gonna roll as the Saiyan warrior makes up for lost time and ends up on a quaint little planet Delays Bardock, Saiyan warrior, awoke next to the bodies of his comrades in a daze.

The last thing he could remember was Dodoria opening his mouth and firing a massive ki blast at him. Shaking the cobwebs from his mind, Bardock attempted to get his thoughts back into a semblance of order. Things had changed massively in his life since Kanassa, since he got the ability to see into the future.

Frieza wanted to kill his people That's what he'd been trying to remember! I'll kill that bastard, Frieza, and get you guys the vengeance you deserve! His whole body was one giant, throbbing ache. He was covered in dirt and blood and his body was littered with crusted-over cuts. How long was I out? Bardock wondered to himself as he eased into his pod, setting the coordinates for Planet Vegeta.

Thankfully, the trip from Planet Meat to his home world would be a short one, as Bardock knew that he didn't have a moment to spare if he wanted to stop his home from being destroyed. As he neared Planet Vegeta, his anticipation built.


He would soon be face-to-face with the tyrant who had turned his people into his lackeys. He would rally King Vegeta and the rest of the Saiyans and, together, they might just stand a chance.

That's what he thought Bardock's eyes widened in horror as his pod closed in on its destination. I should be seeing Planet Vegeta, by now, he thought, frightened. It was several hours before hunger awoke Bardock. He was out of food, hadn't thought to bring any rations on his trip to Planet Meat.

Now, it was gone His whole planet, almost every single member of his race, was gone. He'd heard tell of a space station his people had built a few years ago, trying to establish an off-world colony of some sort. Frieza likely would have had the Saiyans there killed, too, but maybe it was still intact Arrogant jerk just had to name everything after himself The lights were off, but the station was still there.

If his luck held, maybe there would still be some food there As he thought about it, turning the power completely back on would probably be a bad idea. Frieza might get a signal from there and know someone was squatting on a piece of property he was planning to sell. But, he might be able to get the pantry and recovery areas working without anyone being the wiser, at least. Sure enough, when Bardock docked and entered the station, there was nobody there to greet him. Frieza probably had his goons throw the bodies in the incinerator and clean the place up, nobody wants to buy a space station they actually had to clean first.

As luck would have it, a single terminal on the room's far corner was still active. All he'd had to do was bring up a display of the various areas of the station, and hit the little light bulb icon on the mess hall and recovery areas. Both areas were, mercifully, on the inside of the station, so a casual, passing observer wouldn't know anybody was here.

As much as it galled him, Bardock knew he had to be careful. If Dodoria was powerful enough to nearly kill him, then Frieza would likely be able to annihilate him, and he couldn't allow that to happen; there were too few living Saiyans as it was.

After stuffing himself with as much rare meat and cold ale as he could fit in his ravenous stomach, Bardock stalked off to the recovery wing across the way. The healing pods were ready for use, though they were an older model than the ones back home.

As he put on the breathing mask and prepared the machine, something about this felt As the gelid fluid rapidly filled the tank, Bardock's eyes widened with shock as he realized that, in his exhausted state, he'd accidentally wandered into a stasis tank! His mind sent into a state of panic, Bardock reached forward to try and work the internal controls, but before he could stop the process, the fluid inside froze in an instant.

The display on the inside of the pod read "20 years. He shivered as the cold air touched his bare skin. He looked down at the display on the inside of the stasis pod and ripped the breathing mask off his face in anger.

Frieza could've tracked down the rest of his race and exterminated them, by now! His mind clouded over, and Bardock saw a vision of his son, Raditz It took Bardock a moment to recognize them: Prince Vegeta and his comrade, Nappa.

Apparently, Nappa had lost his hair in the past three decades, not that he looked very good before, either. Then, he'll have no choice. It'll take me a few years to get there from here. The last thing Bardock saw before the vision collapsed were the coordinates Raditz put into his pod's navigation controls. The little Prince is, too. His pod could suspend him for long enough to get to Earth.

After shutting the station back down, Bardock input the coordinates he recalled from his vision. Apparently, Raditz was on the opposite side of space from where he was with relation to this "Earth," but his navigation system told him that he'd arrive there at roughly the same time. The interesting thing is, this is actually a retcon. When the time came for a volume release of those chapters, Toriyama ended up rewriting them so that Gohan was now four.

Given the dark subject matter he ended up dealing with during the saga, Toriyama likely felt it more appropriate to age Gohan up a year. Who we know as Teen Gohan, the Gohan featured during the Cell Games, is actually 9 years old, and not 11 like the dub claims he is. If you ignore age completely, then the labels do make some sense.

Boo arc Gohan does look like an adult and Cell Games Gohan very much resembles a teenager. It should be noted that fans have always commented on how poor of a father was long before DBZA, but cases in favor of Goku have become harder to find.

Goku raises Gohan for four years, he dies for one year, he protects Gohan during the Saiyan fight and on Namek, he disappears for almost two years, he trains Gohan for three years, trains him in the RoSaT for one year, and then dies for seven years.

Originally, the prevailing theory was simply that, because Goku could already turn Super Saiyan when Goten was conceived, Goten inherited Super Saiyan from birth. Later, Toriyama added new information and confirmed that Goten was born without a tail and that tailless hybrids can turn Super Saiyan easily. With the very recent addition of S-Cells, though, it seems like the original fan theory has actually ended up being canon. Goten inherited Super Saiyan from birth.

S-Cells are cells found in Saiyans that allow them to turn Super Saiyan. The more S-Cells you have, the easier you can trigger Super Saiyan. Then again, Goku does hunt so maybe he was just out looking for dinner when Chi-Chi gave birth.

At this point in the story, Goku is dead. Goten was born and it was like Goku never left. So, pen in hand, Toriyama crafted a way to let him keep Goku dead while still drawing him. Goku as a child was stocky while Goten was far leaner. Goku was more aggressive and in your face, but Goten was passive and docile.

Fans, as a whole, should take more precaution in fact checking before they say something, but Toriyama is kind of at fault here.

Fans, as a whole, should take more precaution in fact checking. If all your Dragon Ball knowledge comes from exclusively reading the manga or watching the anime, the text makes it very clear Gohan is becoming the main character of the Buu saga.

So what causes the shift if not angry fans?
