Plot Summary

In the version that is shown on YTV in Canada, the story begins mid-way through the Dragon Ball Z series. Raditz, Goku's brother has traveled to Earth to find out why Goku has not yet destroyed the planet as he was supposed to do. But while as a baby, Goku was dropped (down a huge cliff) and forgot his real mission. Kakarot, Goku's real name battles his brother Raditzs along with former enemy Piccolo and friend Krillin. Meanwhile, Gohan; Goku's son reveals his hidden powers against Raditz and nearly kills Raditz. However Goku is killed in the end, but Raditz is eventually defeated by Piccolo. Before he dies, he tells them that two evil Saiyans even more powerful then he is, are on route to Earth. The remaining fighters, Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu begin their training to battle the evil Saiyans, while Piccolo takes off with Gohan to train him in using his new found power. Meanwhile, Goku has to make his way back on Snake Way to King Kai's where he trains himself in the secret art of Kaio-ken. Written by dreamian

Trivia After his fight with Vegeta, Goku is hospitalized in Wukong Hospital. Wukong is the Chinese name for Goku. See more »
Goofs On the hat Krillin wears en route to Namek, Krillin is misspelled as "Kulilin." Kulilin is Krillin's name in the original Japanese Version. This is because l's and r's are commonly confused when translating from Japanese. See more »

Crazy Credits The show has three openings. The first opening (Saiyan and Frieza Saga) is a montage of the characters and battles, and it features a scene of Nappa and Vegeta walking through fire, and ends with the Z-Fighters assembled, joined by Goku who falls from above wielding his Power Pole (unusual considering he never uses it in Z.) The second intro (Cell Saga) is basically the same, however it eliminates the "Nappa and Vegeta in fire" sequence, and shows a more modern group shot of the Z-Fighters at the end, including Goku becoming a Super Saiyan. The third intro (Buu Saga) is completely different and features a new opening song, with footage of the Z-Fighters as they appear later in the series. The first two intros are accompanied by an end credits scene of Gohan running on a globe, intercut with other footage of Z-Fighters and allies. The third intro has an end credits scene featuring Gohan walking down a sidewalk, looking up to see Goku with angel wings, who drops a feather from them. See more »
Quotes Vegeta: Amazing. How do you do it Kakarot? You've always been like this, ever since the day I first met you, always ready to meet the next challenge, even if it's bigger than you are. "So, we meet at last. We have been expecting you, Kakarot. We were beginning to think you wouldn't show. Hopefully, now things will get more interesting around here." "How can this be happening? I am a super-elite... the prince of all Saiyans. and he is just a low-level, a common soldier. I am one of the greatest fighters in the universe!" It was the same on Namek. You have improved so much that it would make Recoome like you were standing still. Your power had increase so dramatically since our battle on Earth that I thought you have done it. I thought... that you have become a Super-Saiyan. It tore me apart. How could a low-class soldier accomplish so easily what I... I had struggle my whole life to achive? After 3 millennia, it is finally happened; A new Super-Saiyin has emerged, and somehow, I have become this popish witness. Then at last it happened. I too transformed. After living every moment of every day for the single purpose of surpassing you, I finally became a Super-Saiyin myself. The prince have reclaim his throne and fulfilled his destiny. But no matter how strong I became, your power still exceeded mine. At first I thought it was your loved ones, than it was your instinct to protect them that spired you on, and pushed you beyond your limits. But then I found myself with a family of my own, and my power... didn't increase at all. I used to fight for the shear of pleasure, for the thrill of the hunt, all I had the strength unmetered, I spared no one. And yet you showed mercy to every one, even your fiercest enemies, even me... Yet you never thought to kill, more for revenge. Only to test your limits, and to push us beyond them, to become the strongest you could possibly be. How can a Saiyin fight like that, and at the same time be so gentle that he wouldn't hurt a fly? It makes me angry just thinking about it. But perhaps it is my anger that has made me blind to the truth for so long. I see it now. this day has made it all too clear. Your better than me, Kakarot. You are the Best...
