Dragon Ball Z


Introduction

Dragon Ball Z was the gleaming creation of Akira Toriyama. But it wasn’t his first creation. He had also created a number of hit mangas. That is also how the Dragon Ball series started. After spawning the instant hit ” Dr.Slump”, Toriyama began to think about other plans for a new manga-series. He began with an idea, “Dragon Boy” a short, mini-series comic that appeared in a weekly Japanese-manga magazine-which inspired him to release Dragon Ball later on. Based on the ancient Chinese fable “Pilgrimage to the West” -or “Journey to the West”(a tale involving the Monkey King (Son-Wu-kong) and his adventures with his companions Piggy, Tripitika and Sandy.

Dragon Ball was finally released. Telling a tale of a young boy with a monkey tail named Son Gokou (Son-Wu-kong in Chinese) and his adventures with the goal of obtaining the legendary Dragon Balls. Story has it that he was found by a caring old man named Gohan, after landing in a capsule from who knows where(the story in DBZ reveals his true origins). Along the way, young Goku meets up with some life-long friends which help him find these valuable relics, such as Bulma a spunky young girl devoted to finding them, armed with hi-tech equipment, WuLong, a perverted pig that has the ability to shape-shift, Yamcha-a desert rebel fighter with an attitude and a friendly magical-cat companion(Kaos), Kame-senin, the wise old and perverted teacher of Gokou and other fighters, with a perfected martial art known as “Kame-senin style, which he passes on to all his students, and finally, Kuilin,a monk who befriends Goku at an early age where they become good friends for the whole series,(but in the beginning they are quite competitive). The “Pilaf Series” is the first installation of Dragon Ball, followed by “Red Ribbon series” and then the “Piccolo series”. The series goes on until Goku grows into a young man, where he has plenty of experience in the famous “Tenkaichi-Budokai” tournaments. There is where the turning point of the series occurs, and he faces Piccolo, an awesome enemy that Goku ends up in a large battle with, and barely beats him. Piccolo supposedly splits into a good and bad form, Kame the good form and Daimou(Demon King) the evil form. It was the classic battle of good and evil.Kame eventually prevails to remain on the earth for quite some while. Dragon Ball Z begins shortly after as a TV Show, but the manga series continues from there still under the title of “Dragon Ball”

DragonBall Z was not your average TV Show and manga series, instead it involved an interesting plot that consists of a storyline where our heroes would live there lives and the plot would grow through several episodes.The sagas are based on each of these major events that occur

 

The Raditzu Story

Now five years have passed since the battle of Tenkaichi-Budokai, and the world has finally obtained some peace. Goku ends up marrying a woman that he fought in a tournment that proposed to him as a child- ( the ox-king’s daughter, as a child she had a sharp blade on her helmet) Chi-Chi, and they have a kid Son Gohan (which is named after Goku’s caretaker “Gohan” and means dinner in Japanese).Peace eventually goes to pieces when a great trouble that reveals all of Gokou’s past arrives, which we all find out is Goku’s brother “Raditz”. The stories point of view switches into an epic, where the growing up of Gohan carries on the legacy of his father.

It ends up that Gokou is a Saiyan from the planet Vegeta, where Goku was originially from, Goku’s real name is really “kakaratto” or just Kakkarot meaning carrot in Japanese, and he reveals all about Gokou’s past and his mission and reason he was sent down to planet Earth. You see, Saiyans have incredible superhuman strength- -and most of them use it for evil or conquering , since Gokou’s father was a soldier from the Planet Vegita, his offspring were supposed to be sent down to different planets to conquer. Goku’s planet was obviouly Earth, and when he was sent down as an infant his rage was uncontrollable. Luckily, Grandpa Gohan found him and had accidentally dropped him down a cliff where he hit his head, losing all memory of his evil objectives. He became a good child from then on, until his saiyan blood transforms him into a huge monkey when he looked at the moon, (temporarily) and he destroyed Grandpa Gohan’s home and killed Granpa Gohan unknowingly. With all this info now, I will just hop along the series past all the battles with short and informative tidbits of data to expl ain the plot. So….thus begins the first installment of the DragonBallZ Story….The RADITZ STORY! -Goku’s father was named Bardock, and was killed later on by a deadly interglactic mercenary that threatens Goku later on. Raditz has a tail, just like Goku had when he was little, *(but Kame cut it off when he was little) and a special communication device worn on one eye that tells BP and power of any individual–known as “Scouters”. He wears the traditional Saiyan armor (very symbolic in the series) and has longer hair than Goku. His strength is many times greater than Goku, but with a little help Goku prevails.

Fighters on Goku’s Side: The Strongest Characters in the Story So Far

BP stands for Battle Power (Power Level in America), overall strength a character contains so far…
Goku: 416 BP– after 5 years, Gokou is reasonably strong compared to an average man, but lacks training and strength. He has been relaxing a little too much, and when the arrival of the saiyans strikes, Gokou is completely unprepared for the battles ahead.

Kuilin:234 BP-still trained under Kame-senin, Kuilin has some strength and contributes to Gokou’s side as one of the better fighters. Still short, Kuilin volunteers to help Gokou battle Raditz.

Piccolo: 408 BP– The strongest character so far, even after the battle at Tenkaichi Budokai. He is still thought as an “enemy” and “rebel” kind of character. Not too trustworthy, and wanders the land to just train and train. He masters some new techniques that are useful aga inst Raditz, and is completely against all the Saiyans. Therefore, he makes it his objective to train everyone he can for the next arrival

Gohan: 1-700, changes with emotion -Gokou’s son obviously looks like weak and defenseless due to his young age, but looks are decieving. Gohan contains a special energy within him that overpowers even Picoolo and Raditz’s Power when he gets angry. So, Raditz’s little nephew puts up quite a fight against him.
Raditz: 1200 BP-The strongest threat Gokou and companions must face for now that is. Incredibly powerful compared to Gokou. Is a match for Piccolo and Gokou together. The fight ends wih Piccolo’s special attack, a sort of finger-shot that goes through Raditz as well as Gokou when he tries to hold him.

Raditz dies as well as Gokou, and Raditz warns Piccolo about the arrival of the other Saiyans, and the fact that the eye-piece was used as a communicator to send help to the much stronger beings from Space. Gokou ends up on the endles Dragon Road after being set on a mission from heaven by King Yama, lord of the heavens, and ends with a specail training with a special Kaoishin, King Kai….it ends with a vision of 2 unknown Saiyans recieving the transmission of Raditz death from the Scouters, as they end up deciding to go to Earth just to conquer it and gain control of all the prescious dragonballs to wish for immortaility. We know them as…Vegeta and Nappa.

The Vegita Saga

Training begins for all the living fighters on Planet Earth. Piccolo sees the potential in Gohan, therefore he trains Gohan to control his awesome emotion-powers so he may be ready for the arrival of the stronger saiyans. Tenshin-Han, a 3-eyed fighter that joined in DragonBall, trains with Kame, as well as Yamcha,(from DragonBall) Chauzzu, and of course, Kuilin. Gokou trains with the Kaioshin King Kai, on Planet Kaoshin with some challenges that test his skills.

He needs to catch a quick monkey, which requires Speed and.. He needs to hit a really fast grasshopper with a mallet which requires even more speed and some strategy, he continues to train until it is his time to come down to earth.

Gohan trains with Piccolo. Piccolo leaves him in the wilderness all by himself so he can build up survival skills and courage/strength. There he faces a scary dinosaur which he musters enough strenght to defeat, and then eats him for meat. Piccolo becomes his idol, and he even begins to dress like him with a cape and dark blue clothes.

They continue to train until the Saiyans arrive. Finally, the day arrives when the dreaded Saiyans touch down on planet earth. After about a year of training, everyone’s BP is increased greatly, and they are all around 1000 or so. The battle vs. Vegeta and Nappa finally begins

Strongest Characters:

Goku:7950 BP-After training under King Kai, Goku returns to Earth after Piccolo, Yamcha, Choutzuu, and Tenshin-Han are all killed by Nappa. His BP is greatly increased, and he now has the ability to perform at an increased strength level–“Kaokintei”-where flames engulf his body and he attacks with greater speed strength and ki.(he learns this from the Kaoishin King Kai) Level 1 Kaokintei brings him up to 10,500 BP!- Level 2 skyrockets him to 21,050!- and Level 3 brings him up to 31,000 the final Powerup, Kaoiken Level 4, brings him all the way up to 45,000 with a KameHameHa (fireball) He beats Vegeta badly with these powerups, because Vegeta is no match for all the BP.

Vegeta:18,000BP
– Vegeta comes to Earth from planet Freeza to wish for immortality with the Dragonballs. It ends up that he’s a Saiyan just like Goku, and he arrives with Nappa. After Vegeta powers up once, with a purple force surrounding him, his BP Rises to 21,000…eventually Goku and Vegeta fight, and Vegeta turns into a Giant-Saiyan Ozzuru Monkey-that holds 30, 000 BP. A samurai character (Ubujji) cuts off his tail, causing Vegeta to shrink, and they resume the fight. Goku wins at the end but is badly hurt, he is rushed to the hospital and Vegeta escapes through the pod back to a home base.

Piccolo: 3400BP- Piccolo trains with Gohan for a year, and his BP is at this level after powering up.

Gohan: 2000BP- After a year of training in the wilderness with Piccolo, Gohans emotional strenght is more controlled.

Luckily, Goku finally arrived to save Gohan and Kuririn by using Kaioken. Vegeta became angry of Nappa’s attempts to kill Goku and shouted “SHI NE,” destroying him. The battle between Goku and Vegeta began. Vegeta gained an advantage by creating an artificial moon and transformed into Oozaru form but lost his ability when Yajirobe cowardly cut off his tail with a sword. (Note: The tail allows a Saiya-jin to transform into a giant monkey called Oozaru when a full moon appears. The transformation will be reversed if either the moon disappears or the tail is cut.) Goku was seriously injured while fighting Vegeta and handed his Genki Dama to Kuririn, who then weakened Vegeta with it. Finally, Gohan turned into Oozaru and started beating up Vegeta. With his last amount of strength, Vegeta escaped back in his spacepod. Bulma and the others arrived to pick up Goku, Kuririn, Gohan, and the bodies of their dead companions. Because of Piccolo’s death, Kami also died unfortunately. Without Kami, the dragon balls was not able to exist. Kuririn stated that he heard Vegeta saying that Piccolo came from the planet Namek. By using Kami’s spaceship, Bulma, Kuririn, and Gohan traveled to Namek, hoping that there would be more powerful dragon balls to revive their friends.


The Freeza Saga

The Freeza series has boosted the popularity of Dragon Ball Z greatly. It is a crucial turning point in the Dragon Ball Saga, because it involves Goku’s very first transformation into the legendary “Super Saiyan”(which comes every 1000 years) with the ability to power up to a golden-haired strenghtened stage. It also introduces the character Trunks at the end, as well as explain more story and plot that occured prior to the start of DragonBall.

Epilouge:
events that happened before the Freeza Series
Years ago, Freeza killed Vegeta, the Saiyan king, and destroyed the Saiyan Planet Vegeta. Then he used prince Vegeta(King Vegeta’s son and the Vegeta we know and love), Nappa, and Radtizu as mercenary-slaves to conquer other planets. After the Vegeta Series only two pure breed Saiyan were left. One was the Saiyan Prince, Vegeta. The other was Bardock’s son, our main hero, Gokou. After the death of Raditz, Vegeta learns from the message from Raditz’s scouter that Dragonballs existed. Later, he figured out that in Namek Dragonballs also existed. After getting beaten by Gokou, Vegeta retreats to Freeza’s planet to recover. Now, he carries on the new goal of gathering the dragonballs for himself to be granted the wish of immortality. He also plans to kill Freeza. Freeza is also in search of the Namek Dragonballs to become immortal and begins to terrorize Namek for the dragonballs. Meanwhile, Bulma learns about the Namek Dragonballs via PoPo, Kami’s assistant. With the hope to gather the dragon balls to wish their friends killed in the Vegeta Series back to, Gohan, Klilyn, and Bulma venture off to Namek on the spaceship that Kami rode on to travel to Earth years ago. Great battles on Piccolo’s home planet are to take place.

Right after the Vegeta series takes place, Freeza-an interplanetary conquerer or planets, makes his apperance on the Planet Namek and begins to collect Dragon Balls. Gohan, Kuilin, and Bulma all go on a spacecraft to investigate, while Goku remains in th e Hospitol, recovering from the wounds from the fight with Vegeta. The storyline before Freeza Arrives is a long and complex one, so it may be explained later on.

Anyway, once on Planet Namek.( Planet Namek’s residents all look like Piccolo.)-Vegeta discovers Freeza’s(Vegeta and the rest of the Saiyans are Freeza’s sworn enemy) whereabouts so he goes over to Namek to try to gather the Namek Dragon Balls as well to wish for immortality. (The Namek Dragon Balls give an individual 3 wishes as opposed to 1 wish on earth.). Freeza begins to conquer Namek, sending out his henchmen, Zarbon and Daoduiba, to gather the DragonBalls and terrorize and destroy the Namek Villages. Meanwhile, our heroes Gohan and Kuilin are having trouble themselves, but finally meet up with the Namek village elders and team up with the Nameks to help. They meet Dende, a very helpful young Namek that serves as a guide around Namek.

Goku recovers from the hospitol thanks to one of Ubujji’s magical beans, and springs into action with help from Dr.Brief (Bulma’s Father) and his invention. He boards a training capsule heading to Namek, where he plans to train on his way there under certain Gravity Forces several times that of earth. Along the way, he encounters some tough terrain and eventually ends up in a Gravity Storm which throws him into G-level 100. He fights it and eventually becomes strong enough to train in it.

While in Namek Vegeta, Gohan, Kuilin and Bulma all face the problem of gathering the DragonBalls. Vegeta has the upper hand, after he raided Freeza’s base and stole 5 of them. The plot gradually continues…with the summoning of the Ginew Force, an elite warrior team composed of Freeza’s best henchmen, and they are taken care of by the combined forces of Vegeta and Goku-(there leader can switch bodies, and a frog is thrown in the path of his mind laser, where he gets stomped afterwards)…until Goku finally reaches Namek, all trained and ready.

Then, the battle of Freeza finally begins!!! When they first battle, Freeza reamains in Normal Form. Then, as the battle progresses both fighters energy levels increase, and Freeza changes into 4 different forms during the battle. He begins with 530,000 while Goku has 550,000 BP. After fighting, Frez a i ncreases to 700,000 in Form2, then 870, 000 in Form 3. Goku’s max powered-up rises him up to 800,000–being barely able to confront Freeza Form 3. Freeza ultimetely transforms into Perfect-Form, with a smooth metallic look and incredible strength. ( 1,200 ,000 BP!!). Goku’s rage rises, because his good friend Kuilin has been killed in battle-and he finally recieves enough power and anger to unleash the Super-Saiya-jin!!! as he blasts up to a whopping 1,500,000 BP with flowing gold hair and a bursting energ y field around him. But it still seems Freeza has another transformation well sort of. Freeza powers up to 100% he was currently fighting at only 70%. It seems Freeza has the upper hand but not for long, the longer Freeza fights at 100% the faster he loses his power. Freeza attacks Gokou with a Slicing disc but instead he cuts himself. Freeza is now incredibly weakened, and Goku finishes him off with a fireball.

Now he has to race against time to escapes just before the planet explodes because Freeza had use his Death Ball Attack on planet Namek before he died.Goku’s whereabouts are unknown, and everyone believes that Goku has died. In the last mili-second Gokou finds finds the Ginyu’s Pods and escapes. Our hero has traveled to the planet Yardrat to learn the art of teleporting! The DragonBalls are gathered, everyone who died is revived and they all return to living a peaceful life.

The Android Saga

The Androids arrive, and the plot goes all the way back to DragonBall. You see, a small organization known as the Red Ribbon fought against Goku as a child, and they planned to obtain the DragonBalls as well. This high-industrial military company made all sort of androids as well, mainly evil ones that planned on destroying things. Dr.Gero, a demented Red Ribbon doctor genius…sworn revenge on Gokou ever since the beginning of the whole series, mainly because Goku was the kid who destroyed the whole organization. Therefore, he created Android #19, a powerful sorta chubby white faced cyborg to kill Goku. Later, he asks Android #19 to make him into a powerful Android as well, so he becomes Android#20, a cyborg with a white beard. Both bear the <R-R> red ribbon logo on their uniforms, and they meet up with the Z warriors to fight. Vegeta faces Android#19, and Android#19 is destroyed, the plot fails, and Android#20 falls , but Dr.Gero has programmed himself to auto-repair and survives the battle.

Android #20, Dr.Gero, then goes back to the Drawing Board to try to come up with a stronger android model. He releases his most recent creations, Android #17 and Android#18. 17 has black hair while his sister, 18 has blonde hair. Both are incredibly strong and they are unleashed.Both Androids eventually get quite annoyed at Dr.Gero, so they kill him. Being a brilliant mad scientist, he had suspected this, therefore he had created Android#21 prior to his death.

Although Android#21 was still placed in a regeneration tube, he was assigned a command–to feast on the energy of over-rebellious androids that didn’t obey.Android #17 and Android#18 break out of the lab, and they bring along the strong Android#16, (who turns out to be a peaceful robot, later on). Our Z Warriors are aware of these new nemesises, and begin to confront them-but they are no match for them and continue to fight and fight reaching no particular victory. The problem is, endurance is what is lacking for our heroes, because of the Android’s long endurance and long-lasting energy, and they can fight with much more stamina than the unprepared combatants. Suprisingly, Goku suffers a Heart Attack, and retreats-shocked. Trunks from the future was luckily sent back by his mother, Bulma, to give the heart-medicine to heal Goku’s heart. Goku is saved, but the Z warriors avoid confronting the overwhelming power of the Androids-therefore they go up to the Heavens and Train in a special gravity room to prepare. Piccolo tries to ready himself for the fight as well, by fusing with Kami-his half-father and guardian of the DragonBalls-while Dende, the young Namek assumes the position of DragonBall guardian. Androids #16, #17, and #18 go out to find Goku to kill him. Piccolo spots the Androids and they begin to duel. All this time, Android #21 has been regenerating, and it finally breaks out of its imprisonment–the being is known only as the powerful “Cell” and he sets out to accomplish his creator’s commands.

 


The Cell Game

The Cell Game, remains as one of the greatest milestones in the series’ history-mainly because in this plot–our main character Goku faces his ate…and destiny. Shortly After the escape of this Biological-Android Cell, He sets out to find the crazed Androids to take their energy. On his path of destruction, Cell terroizes towns, cities, and everywhere else to suck the life out of helpless, inncocent individuals, just to supply enough strength for the battle.This is covered on every news in the world, and it is viewed as a world-crisis. His specially engineered tail contains an ability to suck life out of someone, and with each victim, he becomes stronger with that power. Finally, the Androids and Cell meet up-but strangely, everyone else is amazed because they do not know of each other. 17 threaten to kill Cell, so he begins to engage in Battle. But, suprised at the increasingly strong energy of Cell, 17 is quickly and easily killed, left on the ground for later power-absorption. 16 now faces the monster, and everyone watches in amazement at how 16’s strength can actually stand up against cell. But, he is also destroyed. Cell then devours 17’s strength with his tail–and uses that power to transform into a different stage of power, Cell-form2. He spots his next and final target, Android 18-and sets out to devour her strength as well. Eventually, 18 tries to escape but is devoured as well. With the incredible energy within him, Cell now powers-up to his maximum-level-“Perfect Cell”-where he develops into an organic form, evolving from an android stage!

Cell departs and leaves, and the Z Warriors try to escape his awesome force. Meanwhile, Bulma collects the parts of Android#16 and repairs him. She also reprograms him to fight on the Z-Warrior’s side. Now, the Z-warriors set out to fight this menace. With world-wide coverage, a military team is dispatched full with tanks, guns, and etc to try to take care of Cell, but efforts fail, and Cell demolished the whole army. A new character is introduced, Mr.Satan, supposedly a world-renowened fighter who is really quite weak, and he issues a challenge to Cell. A ring is introduced into a desert-and the Cell Game begins- the Z Warriors look on as Mr.Satan and his crew of fighters try to engage in battle with the powerful being. The 3 fighters all fail, and Mr.Satan finally goes up to battle. He realizes how much stronget Cell is, so he runs away and hides behind a rock for most of the fight. All the Z Warriors have been training, and Gohan is now a teenager with the ability to do a Super-Saiyan (!)-Vegeta also aquires the technique, and Trunks becomes stronger as well with this training. the Z Warriors take turns in fighting, due to Saiyan honor and the rules of the game. Goku and Vegeta fight Cell 1 at a time, until Cell reproduces and forms many Cell Jr.s-1 younger, blue-colored, replicates of Cell. They all are pretty strong, and Gohan steps into the fray and unleasehes his SSJ Lvl.2 powers! all 7 are destroyed, and Gohan takes care of the battle with cell. (his mother is watching him on tv and is quite worried)-Cell is then kicked so hard that he is forced to spit Android#18 back out. He then returns to Cell-Form2, where he is confronted by Goku and beaten badly.

Cell transforms into self-destruct mode, where he swells up into a large form. The explosion from his burst is enough to destroy the earth, and he is willing to risk his life. To save the world, Goku tries to devise a plan, therefore he teleports the swollen-about-to-burst cell to King Kai’s planet, where he explodes and suprisingly kills Goku, Kaoishin, and his monkey, Bubbles-(remmeber they trained in the Raditz Series). Everyone is shocked at the bold move Goku took to take away his life, and everyone mourns the death of Goku. They are finally thankful for the ending of the cell threat.

But, suddenly a sharp piercing ray pernetrates through Trunks, killing him-and Cell appears–in Perfect Form 3!!!!He explains that when he exploded, a surviving brain cell multiplyed and formed perfect form. Cell laughs suprisingly that he could still regenerate all the way to level 3. Cell now announces his plans to destroy Earth, and Gohan steps into the fight. Armed with his SSJ Powers and nothing but Rage. Engaging in Battle, one of Cell’s fireballs injures one of Gohan’s arms, when he attempts to protect a weakened Vegeta from getting hit. Realizing this, Vegeta knows that he owes Gohan one. Gohan charges up for a KameHameHa fireball, and fires it with the strenght left in one hand. Cell counter-attacks with a kamehameha of his very own. A giant explosion is the result of the collision, and the 2 fireballs struggle to see whose is stronger. Constant energy is used by both combatants, and they try their hardest to overpower the other’s Ki. Now with the help of Vegeta, Vegetafires a small fireball to hit the side of cell as a distraction. Now Gohan sees his chance…….with his Dead father’s help, he begins to gain some energy-Goku communicates and aids him with the final burst of energy capacle of blowing Cell away….He releases the power and Cell is completely Destroyed, blasted away by the Awesome Energy of the FireBall. Cell is disentegrated to mere dust, and Gohan lies down, exhausted.

After the battle, Satan comes out from the rock and reports to the world of his “victory” over Cell. He tells the reporters that it was him who destroyed the creature, and everyone congragulates the “hero”. Satan’s swiping of credit from the Z Warriors meant nothing to the true Heroes, because all of them know what they ahd accompolished, all of them know..that the terrible event of Cell is to be forgotten no matter what.—-The Cell series ends with a collection of DragonBalls, and everyone who has died is wished back again. Goku explains to everyone that he is alright when he is dead, and he has a halo above his head to represent his citizennship in the Heavens. Although Goku is not allowed to come back down to Earth beause he was already brought back to life, he goes along living his life. Krilyin has developed a crush on Android #18, Gohan lies in a Hospitol, the Z Warriors return, and the remembrance of Goku is felt through everyone.

The Buu Saga

The Buu Saga Approximately 7 years have passed since the battle of Cell.The focus of main-character through out most of the series goes to Gohan, but changes back to Goku at the end. Gohan is now all grown up-goes to Orange-Star High School,and has a girlfriend named Videl. (Satan’s daughter) and he also has a brother, Goten-who looks exactly like Goku when he was a kid. Kuilin and Android18 have married each other and had a daughter, Marron. Goku continues to fight in tournaments in the heavens, and lives a peaceful life, making a new friend and opponent, Paiku-han. Trunks is grown up from a baby, and he is best friends with Goten. Everyone is shocked and suprised at the ability Goten and Trunks posse to transform into SSJ at such a young age. This series is also very important to the plot mainly because it involves all the heroe’s chances to learn the art of fusion for the very first time!

Another Tenkaichi Budokai Tournament occurs on Earth, and everyone attends. Goten and Trunks are banned due to their young age, but they steal the masked fighters comstume to fight Android18. Goku is granted a single day to visit earth, so he visits his family and watches on as the competitors battle. When it finally reaches Gohan’s turn, Gohan steps up and battle as his new identity, the “Great SuperSaiyan-man” where he dons a bandana and shades as well as a superhero costume. (that Bulma creates). He takes on this identity to fight crime, while everyone else is though to believe Gohan is your average nerd. ( ala Clark Kent–Superman) Gohan reveals his identity to everyone, and battles. Suddenly, 2 combatants, Spopobitch and Yamu appear in the battle ring, bearing a large “M” insigna on their forehead. They drain Gohan’s energy using a weird shaped lamp, and then they take off. Everyone stares in confusion, at the strange event that just had occured.

A Kaiou-shin, a god of the heavens and a planet above, and his partner, approach the grounds of the Tenkaichi-Budokai and try to help Gohan. They revive Gohan, and explain their tale. The beings are truly beyond Kaiou, (the planet where King-Kai lives) and their mission is to stop the diabolical plot of Babi-di and his companion, Daruba. Babi-di is a little, shriveled, ugly wizard/majician who plans to destroy all life on the planet just for fun. Daruba is supposedly the prince of Darkness, and he has the ability to turn people into stone. Together they are trying to revive the ultimate creature of destruction, “Boo”. To bring back this terror, tons of ki-energy must be consumed and used. It turns out that Spopobitch and Yamu are majin-zombies of Boo. The “M” stands for the mark of the Majician or “Majin”.That is the reason why these guys tried to absorb the great amount of energy from Gohan. The Z Warriors agree to aid the Kaoshin’s in their battle-and they follow the two zombies to Babi-di’s lair. Babi-di’s many creatures and minions confront the Warriors, but they are all beaten by the forces of Gohan and Vegeta. Kuilin and Piccolo try to battle Daruba, but they are turned into Stone easily. the only way to “un-stone” is for the death of Daruba to occcur. Vegeta learns that becoming a Majin-slave increases energy greatly, by powering the insanity within an individual, therefore he intentionally volunteers to become one of Babi-di’s slaves. Vegeta becomes evil once more, also appearing with an “M” on his forehead. His crazy emotions go beserk and he sets out to KILL Goku once and for all. He is known know as Majin-Vegeta, and a threat to the Z Warriors once more. With every slave, babi-di recieves their power. Therefore, with the great donation from Vegeta, the majician has finally enough power to summon the legendary terror.The revival of the legendary threat Boo finally occurs–and he appears as an overgrown fat baby-like creature with INCREDIBLE strength. Boo also has an attenae that has the ability to turn people into various sweets and trats, so he can feed on them and get power with it as well. Boo pisses every -body off, even Daruba-so Daruba and him engage in a battle. Boo beats him easily, and turns him into a giant cookie to devour. After Daruba is defeated, Kuilin and Piccolo return to their normal form. Babi-di rides on Boo and they fly around, terroizing the cities as Boo changes the innocent civilians into tiny cocoa-balls to eat. He gains more energy from this as his strength grows. Meanwhile, when all this terror is taking place–Majin-Vegeta is busy battling Goku. His overpowering strength knocks out Goku temporararily, so he starts for Boo. Boo is alot stronger, but Vegeta counterattakcs with some techniques of his own. Finally, when his energy is almost depleted-he desperately tries his special ‘Big Bang Attack”. Vegeta fires the giant fireball, and it is so powerful that it disentegrates him as he falls to the ground and crumbles into dust.

Goku now tries to take on Boo, but as he tries to power up to SSJ-level2 , his power still remamins weak compared to the incredible strength of Boo. His anger burns, and with enough power…Goku reaches..Super Saiyan Level 3!!!!-his golden hair is increased in length, and his power exceeds normal as well. They battle it out, but Goku doesn’t prevail. Meanwhile, Bulma is gathering all the DragonBalls to restore all the lives that were lost due to the Majin-zombies. The Fat Boo grows tired of Babi-di’s control and begins to rebel. He kills Babi-di, and then unleashes a fission blast–which sends him into 2 beings, one being pure good, the other whom is all evil. The good one is the fat boo, while the evil one resembles a small, skinny child. These two duel, and the evil one ends up transforming the Good Boo into a cookie snack. The evil Boo eats the cookie, and transforms into a much stronger form. The skinny child is now much more muscular and lean, with more defined-human like features.

All this time, Gohan is trying to recover from the wounds that Boo dealt him during one of the fights. The Kaoishin’s heal him, and they bring him to their planet for training. He dons the Kaoishin’s uniform, and begins practicing with the legendary Z-“Zet” Sword. Their training involves this suprisingly heavy blade, as he fights under the watchful eye of the Elder Kao-shin-Dao-Kaoshin. Gohan begins to realize his hidden potential without his Super-Saiyan Powers, and how he can use his normal strength as an alternate to becoming angry.The Kaoshin tells him a bit about his past, and how his people were terroized by Boo many years ago on his home planet. The Kaoishins placed a curse on Boo to make him have a fat appearence, and Boo was enraged so all but 2 Kaoshins were killed. Our heroes in the meantime are training in the Sky-Palace, while Boo approaches it, attracted their from a high power source. It turns out that he needs more power to transform into his maximum power stage, therefore he must absorb strong people’s energy to attain that level. The lure this time is Goten and Trunks, and their ability to “fuse” as Goku had taught them. The boys are training inside a special weight room, so Piccolo outwits Boo into waiting for them to come out. Time passes by much more slower in this gravity room, therefore the boys recieve much more time to train for the upcoming battle. Chi-chi scolds Boo for killing so much people, so Boo, turns her into an egg and squashes her. Boo grows impatient, so he threatens he will kill everyone in the Sky Palace if he dosent get to be taken into the same room Goten and Trunks are in. Picollo decides to lead Boo into the room, hoping that the boysm have acquired enough strenght to beat him. They begin to battle, and Goten and Trunks fuse together into the powerful Gotenks and fight Boo. Neither side can win, but Boo seems to be getting the winning hand while Gotenks tries all his techniques. Finally, as a drastic measure, Piccolo destroys the doorway leading out of the room, and attempts to trap Boo as well as everyone inside forever to prevent him from killing any more people. Boo, however, constructs a giant fireball and blasts through the air to form a portal. He exits the room and returns to the sky palace. Gotenks and Piccolo are hopelessly trapped in the room, while Boo is roaming around possibly killing everyone. SSJ Gotenks is too weak to create big enough of a fireball, so he tries to reach SSJ lvl.3–finally, he obtains that goal–and lets out a giant scream that rips through the air and produces a big enough portal for both of them to go through, as Gotenks meets up with Boo once again, this time in SSJlvl.3. Gotenks kicks Boo around, and uses a final attack to blast Boo back down to Earth. But, in the process the Sky Palace is reduced to ruins. With Gotenks becoming cocky and dancing a victory dance, Boo is found still alive-and the fusion wears off. The boys are found in a mishap now, as their power has no effect on the incredible strength of Boo. Finally, Gohan completes his training with the Kaoshins, and is teleported back to Earth, wearing his father’s uniform.

Gohan appears just in time to save Goten, Trunks, and Piccolo. Gohan just overwhelms Boo and beats him with ease. The crew flies away, thinking the battle is won–but Boo follows closely behind, sneaking up with an attack and absorbing Gotenks. He becomes much stronger and begins to fight Gohan. Tenshin-Han joins in and tries to contribute to the battle. Meanwhile……..Vegeta is granted life back by King Yamma to help fight Boo. Goku is told about the special Potablo fusion earings. So, the elder Kaoishin sacrifices his life to bring back Goku. Goku returns to earth with a mission to fuse permanently with Gohan to battle Boo. He Thanks everybody and leaves..Goku teleports to the battle scene and suprises Boo by slicing him with a destructuion disk. This cuts off his attenae, which lies on the ground and engulfs Piccolo to become absorbed. Boo changes and grows stronger once again. The other part of the attenae knocks Tenshin-Han out cold, and approaches Gohan. Goku threw him the ring, but Gohan had dropped it. looking desperately for the it, the rest of Boo’s attenae engulfs Gohan and draws him into Boo’s body to be absorbed. All hope is gone for a stronger fighter to fuse with, as Goku lies in awe and anger.as his son becomes part of the monster. Suddenly, Vegeta’s prescence is sensed, and he teleports out of Boo’s range to find to his suprise..Vegeta alive and well!..he tells him to take the earring but Vegeta refuses. He claims it is resticted by Saiyan Honor, and Goku and him always had a grudge going. But Goku explains to him that everyone has been devoured by this creature, and no hope is left…Vegeta finally joins when he realizes his own family has been hurt. Then the two take the earrings and fuse to become….Vegetto!!!

Vegetto is no match for Boo, with the incredible strength he contains with his Super-Saiyan Powers. But, Vegetto purposelly gets absorbed by Boo to save evreyone else that is inside him. The fusion cancels out once inside, and they find Goten, Gohan, Trunks, and Piccolo within in small pods. They carry them out after Vegeta rips out the cord attached to the Fat Boo, his main source of Power, and then they escape through one of Boo’s pores. After the absorption of Vegetto, Boo returns to his “true” self, his strongest form, before he was cursed by the Kaoshins. He resembles a child, but contains great energy. Then he attempts to shoot a fireball to destroy the earth, but Vegeta blows the fireball off path. Boo prepares another fireball to be fired at our heroes, but with quick thinking Goku quickly grabs Mr.Satan, his dog, and Dende, and summons the Kaoshin to teleport all of them back to his planet. They teleport, leaving Gohan Trunks, Goten, and Piccolo behind, as Earth explodes with the release of Boo’s fireball.

They get back safely, and all believe that they have won, because Boo has been destroyed along with the Earth, and Earth can be easily returned with help from the Namek DragonBalls. But, Unfortunately..the Kaoshin spots Boo reforming from the explosion in his crystal ball, as Boo suddenly transports right to their Planet to find Goku+Vegeta! The Kaoishins and Dende teleport to a much safer part of the planet, as they watch the Final Battle begin…!!!

The Final Battle against the Boo Threat has begin, and Goku and Vegeta stupidly decide to take on him one at a time, mainly because they try to live up to their Saiyan code of Honor. Goku powers up to SSJ lvl.3, and the fight between them reaches no clear victory. Vegeta takes his turn up, and gets easily disposed of by Boo, even when he fights in SSJ lvl.2. Mr.Satan decides to distract Boo, because he sees Vegeta getting beaten, So Boo rushes at the unsuspecting victim. Suddenly, a pain in Boo’s stomach occurs, and the Fat Boo is spat out. Shortly After, the Fat Boo arises-we know now that he is good-and defends Satan by saving his life from one of Boo’s fireballs. The Fat Boo and Boo duel it out, with the evil one getting the upper-hand. This gives Vegeta and Goku a chance to rest..as Goku plans to create a giant Genki-Dama, the ultimate Soul Bomb, to take care of Boo once and for all. Meanwhile..on Planet Namek, all the DragonBalls are gathered and the Namek Dragon is summoned. Dende starts the 3 wishes, as he begins by wishing the Earth back. The 2nd wish is for all the people killed by Majin Boo to be revived, therefore everyone in the Sky-Palace, the cities, and the Kaoshin’s are revived. Vegeta is revived as well, because he died in the battle against Fat Boo. Finally, Goku flies up in the air…and begins his process of summoning energy for his GIANT GENKI-DAMA. Vegeta tries to help out by telepathicly communicating to all the people in the world, but only few-such as Goten, Gohan, Trunks, and Piccolo donate energy. Goku recieves some..but it is still not enough……..

Vegeta tries harder, to try to get more energy…but none of the people trust him…. The Androids donate energy, 17 donates ki, 8 as well, and characters from the beginning of DragonBall such as Bora each give something….It grows a little….. Vegeta then fights Evil Boo, trying to distract him from interupting Goku’s Genki-Dama. Suddenly, Satan steps up and shouts his voice to everyone on Earth…and as a well-known figure..everyone listens….They all hold their hands up in the air, and large amounts of energy transport into Goku’s power…

The SOUL-BOMB grows….LARGER than it has ever grown before, and Goku finally tosses it at Boo. The 2 sides, good and evil struggle, as Boo tries to combat the Genki-Dama with energy of his own. Goku seems to struggle…it seems he cannot fight any longer…..until Dende wishes his last wish, for Goku to regain his strenth. Goku is suprised, and takes advantage of his newfound power that awakens within, and finally….powers up to Super Saiyan and blasts it with his remaining force…. Boo crumbles away as the ki overwhelms him, and Goku exhaustedly falls to the floor. He sees Vegeta and gives him a thumbs-up. Vegeta smiles (for the first time) and gives him the thumbs-back.

Our heroes find the Fat Boo, and decide to spare him, because Mr.Satan pleads because Boo has saved his life. They return to the Sky Palace….and the Earth is saved…by the DragonBalls.

10 years have passed after the battle….Bulma grows older, Vegeta and Goku remain the same, but Goku sports a new, more relaxed blue uniform, Boo becomes one of Satan’s good friends, and Satan himself starts to bald. Trunks and Goten grow up to teenagers as best friends, and Trunks has a younger sister named Bra. Krilyin has white hair, Yamcha has a new look, Kame-Senin gets new shades, and Piccolo still resembles his own self after he fuses with Nail. And Finally, Gohan and Videl have a daughter, Pan, who shows great fighting skill at the age of four.

After this time, another Tenkaichi-Budokai Tournament takes place and all the characters including Pan, Goku’s grandaughter, participate. A new character, Ubu, is introduced, a little boy, who is paired up with Goku in a match. Goku has a feeling that Ubu is actually the True Evil Boo reincarnated, because Goku made a personal wish to himself that the evil monster would return 10 years later as someone “good”. He recognizes Ubu’s strength and immediately knows that his wish has came true…so he flies away with Ubu and tells his family that he will train with him. He leaves the arena with Boo, and flies away into the sky. An end narration is spoken, and the sky fades out…..’ So Long, Goku….till the Day We Meet Again!”…
