Dragon Ball: Crazy Things You Didn’t Know About Goku’s Family
Probably not, he didn't even know who his father was until Vegeta told him. Bardock would have a heart attack just seeing Goku going SSJ1. I just wanted to know that did Goku ever know his father was Bardock? What do you think? He knew OF Bardock he's been mentioned to Goku but really he. Meet Gine! Should Toriyama ever decided to revisit her character again, It's a feature he inherited from his father, Bardock, and a trait his son, Goten, Even though Goku does love Chi-Chi, he actually hasn't kissed her.
Does Goku know of Bardock's existence?
Should Dragon Ball continue after Super, which it more than likely will, bet your money on Pan taking the spotlight in a big way. Instead, Gohan and Goten have always been more interested in living a grounded lifestyle away from the action Goku seeks out. Take Gohan for instance. The first thing we learn about him is that he wants to grow up to be a scholar.
Did Goku ever think much of his father?
His entire arc in the Saiyan saga revolves around getting him to understand he needs to fight. Not once does he actually want to fight. This is a theme that carries over through the entirety of Z and has its emotional peak during the Cell Games. Why risk your life when your dad can just save the day? Goku cares about his friends and family, but he and Pan connect on a deeper level.
He treats her as an equal, has genuine fun with her, and puts his life on the line for her during GT. Pan is the one person Goku consistently shows a delicate amount of care for. It makes sense if you think about it. 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 then approaches him slowly.
Goku meets his parents
So this is one of Gokus family, I wonder if Goku could have ended up as evil as that man. As gohan says this a women walks past him he checks her out as she approaches Goku and raddiz.
Brother, you're a super saiyan! Please don't hurt me, I'll stop i swear it! I have no brother, you saiyans are all evil. I am Saiyan in blood but not in my upbringing, I'm sending you back to where you can't hurt anyone anymore! The women comes up and slaps both Goku and Raddiz across the face and stands between them. Goku looks confused and raddiz is shocked. Raddiz You shouldn't be attacking your bother like that, Bardock and I didn't raise you like that.
Another saiyan, I guess you escaped from hell too huh!? Goku gets ready to attack but Gohan hits Goku overtop the head and Goku stops. No I'm a resident of Haven.
A saiyan in haven? Mother was very kind and rarely battled. Gine walks up to Goku and hugs him. I'm sorry we sent you away kakarot it was to spare you from Freizas genocide Baradock turned out to be right about it.
Goku backs away and returns to normal state. Gine see's bardock in his face. My name is Goku, I am a saiyan from earth I'm not like you guys. Gohan walks up to Gine. I'm sorry about all this, You see I'm the one who found Goku on earth. I see thank you for taking care of kakarot. Kakarot, Bardock and I were different, at the very least towards the end of his life bardock was anyway. I never knew you guys and deep down I never cared grandpa Gohan is my parent as far as I'm concerned.
Raddiz despite being much weaker attacked Goku for saying that Goku didn't flinch but waited to hear raddiz out. How dare you insult Mother and Father like that. They saved your worthless life by sending you away to earth, you were free from freiza and could be this "Goku" Had they kept you there you'd be dead or had been serving freiza like Prince Vegeta nappa and I were. Freiza really changed you. Raddiz bowed his head in shame to his mother Goku looked on and was surprised, he had not fully forgiven raddiz for what he had done to Gohan and still had the evil image of him stuck in his head.
I'm going to see what i can do to get you and your father out of hell ok Raddiz, go back now before it causes more trouble. Raddiz hugged Gine a sign of affection Goku didn't know saiyans could show, even more so for Raddiz someone Goku thought he knew everything about from his encounter with him. Raddiz flew off going back to hell. Goku Your mother and Father must have cared for you, theres no reason to be so tough on them. Just look at this man that attacked your son, despite being so evil when he saw his mother he couldn't keep up the tough guy act anymore.
Deep down he just wanted his family. No I have no right to call you by that name now, Goku, since you're dead now too I want you to visit me sometimes and we can talk and maybe make things right. Goku was unsure he had painted a picture in his head when he met Raddiz that his parents were likely savages and had no desire to learn more about them.
Now he see's that his mother is a good person that got to go to haven all on her own. Normally Goku was funny and not to serious but this was a different situation Goku didn't know how to act about in.
Gohan looked at Goku and Goku understood that it was something Grandpa wanted so he nodded in agreement. Goku then went off with Gohan and returned to King kai.
A few years passed with Goku training in the grand Kais world he had finally perfected super saiyan 2 here and there he went to see Gine and ask questions about her and bardock and he slowly started to act natural around her. One day as he was training though Goku King Yenma tells me Your mother some how managed to get your father into haven with her and raddiz to purgatory.
You should go visit them. But King Kai I'm still trying to get even stronger. Goku this is for me too, I've been training you non stop and haven't had the time to ask grand kai to restore my planet, which you blew up.
Ok, ok I'll go. Goku teleported and met up with Gine. Goku had finally started to call her Mom and the two had grown at least somewhat close, altough nothing compared to goku and grandpa Gohan. Goku looked over Gines shoulder and saw Gohan talking with Bardock the two seemed to be laughing. Bardocked noticed Goku and walked over.
Kakarot its been along time.
