Welcome To What if Raditz Turned Good! The story where Raditz is based on his father as establish in the Broly Movie, not psychic but very aware of how Frieza is as person.. bestowing this feeling of mistrust on his eldest son, Gohan’s potential made him think.. this might be the legendary super Saiyan of old legends! Trying to convince the evil saiyans to join them in their fight against Frieza he hatched a plan to convince these Saiyans of their worth! But will it be enough now that Goku seems in Mortal Danger.. find out more in today’s episode! The earlier episodes you can find at the end of the post!
‘LEAVE MY DADDY ALONE!’ shouts Gohan who in an instant is next to Vegeta.. pounding his head into his back in a very similar fashion that he had tackled Raditz with. Vegeta not expecting this and trying to finish of Kakarot gets send to the ground his attack missing Goku, but blowing up the mountain the Saiyan was sent towards. Goku just smiles and slowly floats towards Krillin asking for a Senzu Bean. Meanwhile Vegeta regains his senses as he straightened himself out just before he can hit the ground “what the” he asks before a kick to his jaw sends him flying up again. Gohan moves up with him, staring at him with empty white eye .. slightly more standing up hair and a golden aura.. making his hair get a brown copperish blow as it reflect the golden light. With some trouble Vegeta activates his scouter. The power level he sees reaches over 50.000 closer to 60.0000 nearly 3 times stronger than Vegeta is in his current form! A kick in the stomach then makes him cough violently as he crashes in the earth before he can even realise what happened.
“This is it.. the kid is a Super Saiyan” says Raditz staring at Gohan who lands on the ground not saying anything. “What was that again” Goku asks. “You really are your mother’s son Kakarot’ Raditz scoffs. Gohan still stands there menacingly but seems to be more in control of himself now that he notices his father is safe. “D-..Dad” he utters with some slurred speech. The sound of rocks disturbs the silence Vegeta gets up. “A Super Saiyan… the son of the son of a low class warrior.. and not even a full blooded saiyan.. stronger than me?! … The prince of all Saiyans? Don’t make me laugh Raditz’. ‘Vegeta you know what my father told me.. with this kid we stand a chance against Frieza’ . The prince looks at the boy and scoffs , then he looks at Raditz. “Your father was nothing but confused trash… would he really believe in the legend’ . Raditz looks sternly at the prince and gestures to the boy to move closer to Vegeta. Gohan instantly is in vegeta’s face, his hands stretched in the position of a double sunday. Vegeta stands up and looks at the kid but ignores him.. seeing through the idle threat.
“This kid can barely take down the weakest member of the Ginyu force.. and he has much more technique than this kid” Vegeta does a feign attack allowing him to land a kick on Gohan. He then uses his power up state to move to Raditz.. who in this underpowered form got caught by surprise as Vegeta pulls his tail and fires a Ki Blast at it. ‘Still.. the Pauper.. I see’ says Vegeta while smirking and holding his hand in a certain position. Raditz recovering from the crippling pain freezes as he realises what is about to happen. He might have just doomed them all.How could he have been such a fool! Of course the prince would be this blinded by pride! He could not accept a kid as his superior! Raditz closes his eyes as he hears Vegeta usher the words “Burst open and Mix”
Meanwhile Piccolo cruely smiles as he dashes towards the trio of Yamcha , Chiaotzu and Tien. He knows their weaknesses. Now that they have chosen to deny his kill, and without Gohan turning him more on the path of good, he is without mercy. Without a second of doubt in his mind he fires an Evil Blast towards the little emperor , which as he expected gets caught by Tien. Who immediately looks worse for wear. Yamcha is storming in.. but Piccolo knows the man is very focussed on Melee attacks, he simply stretches his legs and kicks Yamcha hard to the ground. Creating a crater upon impact. He dodges Chiaotzu Dodon Ray. Tien looks at Chiaotzu and nods at him. “Buddy tag out of this fight.. me and Yamcha got this” . The little emperor objects but as she sees Piccolo grin menacingly he agrees. “Please Don’t die Tien” the little guy says before flying off. Piccolo aims an attack at the little guy but gets Solar Flared by Tien. The man’s famous and very copied blinding technique!
The Namekian takes a defensive position expecting a follow up attack from the triclops but instead behind him he hears the words Wolf Fang Fist. As he is violently launched towards Tien who then slams him down to the ground by two interlocking fits and slamming on the Namekian as if it was a hammer. ‘We knew we could not trust you’ Tien says. ‘We were prepared that you would betray us.. I just did not think you would stoop as low as killing a harmless target or Goku’s friends’ The Namekian grins a bit ‘I might have trained you a bit to well, but if you think I did not plan for a scenario like this you are sorely mistaken’. The nameking vanishes appearing behind Tien twisting his arms all across him using him as a meat shield while holding his hand towards his head charging energy into his two fingers. Yamcha readies himself as suddenly Piccolo’s eyes go wide and look up and a giant shadow is cast over Yamcha.
“Burst open and Mix” with these words Vegeta’s attack creates a moon like ball in the heavens and he begins to transform into his great ape state. He is not the only one though, False Super Saiyan God Kid Gohan transforms into a great Ape as well.. the Ki from that thing is immense.. though not nearly as immense as Raditz had expected. His power level would actually be lower barely higher than his False Super Saiyan God level.. now 150.000. Only an about 2x modifier compared to the boost to 180.000 that Vegeta got The incomplete super saiyan transformation being dispelled due to the great ape transformation instead.
“Hubris Raditz… you see.. Kakarot’s son.. is nothing compared to me now” says the great ape saiyan prince while Gohan just pounds his chest and fires a mouth blast. ‘Brother.. use that technique King Kai thought you.., I shall keep the prince distracted, bald man give me one of those beans’ Raditz says while activating his Kaioken x4 and power up to full. Krillin hands him a senzu bean somewhat reluctantly and sees the uncle dash towards his now rampaging nephew.. but he is not the only rampaging Saiyan.
Nappa while unconcious was still subject to the Great Ape transformation, however in his knocked out state, there is no way the bald saiyan would stay in control. Weakened by his wound the power level of this great ape is still around 20.000 more than enough to swat the measly 3000 of Tien and 4000 of Piccolo. Beginning to charge up a mouth blast Piccolo knows he is in trouble. With his arms all tangled across Tien he has nowhere to go. retracting his arm would take to long. Especially since his other arm is already has so much of his energy in the special beam cannon. He bitterly smirks as he wraps his legs more around Tien to prevent him from escaping. This would have to do, he aims his special beam cannon at Yamcha.. but Piccolo and Tien are evaporated before the attack is even fired. Yamcha can only look in horror, barely even realising what just happened. When a shadow is cast over him and a giant foot is about to crush him.. he hears “look out Yamcha” as Chiaotzu comes flying in his face covered in tears. ‘Chiaotzu… I am not sure if we are strong enough to survive this.. this may be it buddy’ Yamcha says to the little pale faced man. Chiaotzu shakes his head! Keep the earth safe Yamcha! Chiaotzu says as the little guy flies directly towards the sluggish great up.. almost seeing to hug the tail. The little man tells his final goodbyes and blows up.. managing to successfully sever the feral apes tail. As Nappa reverts to his normal form and falls unconscious again Yamcha looks at the smoking piles of earths..where his friends just stood a minute ago.
Raditz at Kaioken x4 has a power level of around 24.000, nowhere near enough to seriously make a stand against Vegeta who was almost 9x as strong. but if he could draw the great ape boy close enough to him.. they might have a chance. Using his speed to dodge the attacks of feral ape Gohan he draws berserking animal closer and closer to the sentient one. Just before he is close to Vegeta though the man is snatched up by the great ape princes and smashed into the floor, as Raditz coughs up blood, a stomp is send his way. A stomp that gets blocked by a great ape Gohan tackling great Ape Vegeta. The Oozaru duke it out for a while but eventually Vegeta manages to grapple Gohan’s Tail and rip it off, hurling the kid into a mountain bringing him to the brink of death. Both Raditz and Gohan are down for the count when Vegeta suddenly notices a bright blue light behind him. Goku is there holding his spirit bomb tossing it at Vegeta.. having fully recovered due toone of Krillin’s Senzu beans this spirit bomb unlike the original does not miss. Knocking out the great Ape Prince.
“Hey Buddy would you mind helping out” he says to Krillin who actually manages to finish the weakened Vegeta by cutting his tail of with a destructo disk. The wounded Vegeta tries to crawl back to his pod and Krillin tries to stop him. “Let him go little buddy’ Goku says to Krillin. ‘That one is not ready to join us yet.. but I have a feeling he will come around’. Krillin looks at Goku and says ‘But Goku surely he will inform his master this Frieza guy off us’. Goku shakes his head as Vegeta enters the pod ‘I don’t think he will.. he just has to led go of that pride before her can realise that himself’. Goku nods. In Vegeta he sees much of himself.. if Master Roshi had not taught him humility all those years ago. Since he found out he was a Saiyan..he discovered more why he was the way he was himself. Based on this fight.. they had not defeated him yet.. he would never come around! He knew that! To win his loyalty they had to prove they were truly stronger. Maybe the other Saiyan Piccolo defeated earlier could…. Goku’s heart stopped a beat. He could not sense the power level of anyone but Yamcha! What happened there! He was sure he felt the saiyan’s power level go down before! It was then that Goku realised his brothers plan had a fatal mistake.
A few days later the survivors had gathered at Capsule Corp the mood was glum. Raditz blamed himself for not phatomming the level of Vegeta’s arrogance. While the prince was not stupid and does accept a higher power level if he is confronted with it.. although begrudgingly.. the fact that a six year old kid outpowered him was to much for the prince’s ego to handle. His brain would find any way to deny this.. and rightfully so. Gohan’s battle techniques were sloppy and his mind weak. Vegeta.. being the great tactician he is exploited that weakness and as a result Tien Chiaotzu and the Dragon Balls were gone. Nappa had been recovering in at Capsule Corp and now showed the first signs of awakening. He was no threat to them, a recovered Goku and Raditz now had a power level of around 8000 for Raditz and 10.000 for Goku respectively. Gohan having gained the biggest boost up until 3000. With no Dragon Balls around, Raditz failsafe plan went up into smoke. When Picollo died Kami also faded away and so did the Dragon Balls.
The group would however find Nappa to be unexpectedly co-operative. Having seen the kid double in power level over just a fews day and having been abandoned by Vegeta the Saiyan does see reason in Raditz words. As a hencheman to the King and later the prince Nappa saw the tension between King Cold his son and their former King. Somewhere Nappa knows Vegeta always treated him like a minion and to an extend that was what he was. He never minded as long as he had to wreck stuff. In a way he had become a slave.. not once but twice over. To both Frieza and Vegeta.. that was not the Saiyan way.. however these guys.. this new Raditz.. want to treat him like an important ally. They healed him up, some of them gave their lives to keep him safe.. as they felt he was needed for the battles to come! He was important for once . Nappa was sick of being treated as the footwipe of so many people. Wanting to be stronger he says he will help them fight Frieza.. if they will help him get beat up that sad sack of a Vegeta who left him here all by himself. Raditz agrees and tells that they have to find another time to beat humility in Vegeta. He still recognised they needed all the help they could get against Frieza even that blasted prince. In an attempt on how to save their friends the group reaches the same conclusion as in the original. They can use the Namekian Dragon Balls to save everyone..except for Piccolo if possible. Once back on earth they could use the Earth Dragon Balls to find out more about the Super Saiyan.. as what Gohan displayed it earlier.. was not that thing described in legends.
Goku, Raditz Gohan, Nappa, Yamcha Krillin and Bulma all want to go on this trip. All for their own reasons! Nappa while not completely trusted either.. as he blew up the city earlier and he still doesn’t care about that is apologetic for killing “the Triclops and that funny little clown guy’ Had he killed them himself he would not have apologised but doing something like this in a feral great ape state felt.. dishonourable and unsaiyan like. That was not a proper win! Surprisingly Yamcha is the one who turns out to be the most forgiving. He too started out on a bad path.. but Goku saw more in him and brought out the best in him. In Tien heck even Raditz who had now proven himself. Yamcha saw this the most of everyone. The Namekian spaceship of Kami was suggested as their means of transportation..but Goku asks Bulma to make an addition “I want to be able to train better it.. like on King Kai’s planet you know.. with the gravity’.
How shall the trip to Namek go?! How will the story change now that Piccolo will stay in HIFL. What will Vegeta do now that he found out about this super powerful Hybrid Saiyan and can Nappa really be trusted? Find out next time on Dragon Ball Pinkie!
