Goku, born Kakarot, is considered to be one of Earth’s greatest heroes. He is rumored to be one of the last remaining members of the Saiyan race. Before his home planet, Vegeta, was destroyed by Frieza, he was sent to Earth as an infant to destroy it. He had an accident involving his head when he was child that caused him to forget about his mission to destroy Earth. Goku embarked on a quest with Bulma to retrieve the legendary Dragon Balls. It is rumored that the person who gathers all seven Dragon Balls will be granted a wish by a legendary dragon.
It is rumored that Goku single-handedly took down the Red Ribbon Army at their main headquarters. Goku fought and defeated Piccolo to become the champion of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament. Goku fought and defeated two Saiyans, Vegeta and Nappa, on Earth. He went to the planet Namek and defeated Frieza, a galactic emperor who sought the Dragon Balls for eternal life. Goku was able to transform to the legendary Super Saiyan form when fighting Frieza. Goku fought against Cell, a creation from the Red Ribbon Army scientist, Dr. Gero, in the Cell Games, a martial arts tournament created by Cell. Goku lost the match by forfeit. Later in the tournament he sacrificed his life by using his Instant Transmission technique to teleport Cell away from Earth right before he self-destructed. Goku fought Kid Buu and defeated him by using the Super Spirit Bomb. Edit
