Dragon Ball: 20 Crazy Secrets About Goku And Vegeta's Friendship
Lastly, an underrated relationship I love is Chi-Chi and Goten. Don't get me wrong, I love Gohan and Chi-Ghi's relationship, but I felt that. At least three members of the family Ox King, Grandpa Gohan, and Goku are . while on missions which lead to their romantic relationship which itself was a. and heart. But like their father, Goten and Gohan have some pretty dark secrets . 17 GOTEN'S RELATIONSHIP WITH GOKU. Time and time.
Even at a young age, Vegeta's power surpassed that of his father's, the King. This belief that no one was stronger naturally made Vegeta overconfident. Goku whose Saiyan name is Kakarot on the other hand, was deemed weak at birth and was sent to Earth.
Due to hitting his head as a baby, Goku lost all sense of evil and became pure of heart.
He made new allies, went on incredible adventures and beat powerful villains, all the while growing stronger and stronger. Yet he never rubbed his strength in anyone's face, he always remained humble. But despite his kindness, Goku still suffers from overconfidence, a trait that seems to be a weakness all Saiyans share. These two, who are almost the opposite of each other, are the driving force behind Dragon Ball Z and their relationship's development is an important part of the series.
This is when the two Saiyans first meet: Clearly at this point there was no friendship between them, they were enemies. Vegeta originally travelled to Earth in search of the dragonballs so he could have his wish of immortality granted. All Goku wanted to do was protect his family, friends and the planet he called home.
Vegeta even made Goku the offer of becoming his new partner in place of Nappa, to which Goku obviously declined. The two fought an intense battle in which both were injured tremendously. After his defeat at the hands of Goku, Vegeta becomes enraged that there was a Saiyan whose power rivalled his and vowed to surpass Goku.
Although still bad, Vegeta formed an unlikely "alliance" with Goku, Gohan and Krillin in order to stand any sort of chance against Frieza. One of the most powerful moments of Goku and Vegeta's development happens after the latter's battle with Frieza. Having been beaten almost to death, Vegeta gloated at Frieza that while he may have stopped him, he knew Goku had achieved the legendary Super Saiyan form.
In annoyance, Frieza fired his signature Death Beam through Vegeta's chest.Why Goten Is UNLIKE Goku & Gohan!
But before he died, Vegeta spoke to the other Saiyan in one of the most emotional scenes in the entire series. Vegeta told Goku of his past, the pain he'd faced and how Frieza had manipulated him into the person he was.
Vegeta even cried, begging Goku to defeat Frieza, before passing away. I feel this scene was even more powerful because, despite not being anything close to friends, Vegeta still chose Goku as the one person to open up to. At this time, Goku was more civil and accepting of Vegeta than vice versa.
Although both had reached the level of Super Saiyan, Vegeta still believed himself to be stronger. Vegeta even saved Goku from Android 19, although this was because he claimed he wanted to be the one to beat Goku. At this point, there was more of a rivalry between the two Saiyans as opposed to being enemies. Satan is not as strong a Martial Artist as most of the world believes, he is still capable enough to defeat the likes of Spopovich before he was possessed by Babidi and Lord Jaguar during a fight while both were in high school in a fight.

Satan was badly injured during his encounter with Tao, he survived while mentor was killed, causing him to be more cautious when facing opponents stronger than himself. Satan was considered a joke by the Z Fighters and Cell, he did play a role in the defeat of Cell as he throw Android 16's still functional head to near where Gohan was allowing the Android to encourage Gohan to let go of his rage before it was crushed by Cell, which caused Gohan to transform into his Super Saiyan form.
He also ended up taking credit for Cell's defeat which allowed Gohan to live in peace with his mother and little brother. Unlike her father, Videl was more dedicated to training and took martial arts seriously becoming Junior Division Champion during the 24th World Martial Arts Tournament and using her fighting skills to help defend Satan City. While she at first believed her father was responsible for defeating Cell, she herself did have doubts about his claims and through her interactions with Gohan and researching the Cell Games footage she began to suspect he was the young boy who fought Cell, realizing her father had simply taken credit for Cell's defeat though she was actually relieved when she later learn the truth from Gohan.
Coming from such a long line of martial artists, Pan trained under both her grandfathers Goku and Mr. Satan like her mother she occasionally would train at Satan House dojo with Mr. Satan's other studentsas well as being trained by both her parents, and occasionally sparred with her uncle Goten as well as his best friend Trunks.

However Bardock, Gine, and Raditz were all low class warriors though Bardock was quite strong for a Saiyan of his class. It should also be noted that both Bardock and even Gine capable of enduing ten times the Earth's gravity due to living on Planet Vegeta. Additionally, while stronger than most Earthlings they like most Saiyans were unaware of certain abilities such as Ki Sense forcing them to rely on Scouters.
Raditz himself was surprised his brother's ability to concentrate his ki and how Goku and Gohan were able to change their power levels. Raditz was also stated to have a power level equal to the Saibamen used by Nappa and Vegeta during the Saiyan conflict, though his strength was superior to Goku's at least before his death and training under King Kai, though Raditz himself admitted that Gohan's power was abnormal and greater than himself.
Due to the gentle nature of Goku, his sons, and Goku Jr. Additionally, while Bardock was capable of ruthless slaughter, his cared greatly for his comrades and was protective of Gine while on missions which lead to their romantic relationship which itself was a rarity among Saiyans and Bardock himself often joked that he had contracted Gine's "sickness" gentle natureindicating he too also had a greater amount of S-Cells which is supported by his acquiring his Super Saiyan transformation in Episode of Bardock.
While Gine herself likely had a high level of S-Cells due to her gentle personality, her retirement from the Saiyan Army and death during the Genocide of the Saiyans meant she herself was never able to acquire the form. Due to both his gentle nature and love of fighting, Goku was the first Saiyan in years to achieve form after his best friend was killed by Frieza. Additionally Goten had the additional advantage of being conceived several years after Goku become a Super Saiyan, thus along with his gentle nature explains how he was able to transform at such a young age.
While he had to work harder to obtain the form, Gohan and his future counterpart his gentle nature combined with his hidden potential allowed him to acquire it much earlier than his father did and become the first person in his family to achieve Super Saiyan 2. Right before Cell is about to finish Vegeta, Gohan intercedes which costs him the use of his left arm. They both launch large Kamehameha waves at each other, which initiates a power struggle.
Gohan uses this moment to unleash all his fury into his attack, which causes it to overpower Cell's. It hits Cell full-force which disintegrates all his cells, finally killing him. Gohan states he wears it in hopes of becoming as strong as his father one day, and is mentioned that he bears a striking resemblance to Goku when donning it.

Gohan initially partners with Android 17 to battle Toppo,  firing a Kamehameha wave at Android 17 and Toppo while they are inside Android 17's barrier in effort to ring them out, though Gohan retracts the beam out of concern for Android In the Garlic Jr. Leading up to the Cell Games, Gohan encounters Taopaipaihis father's old enemy, who flees from a potential battle once recognizing Gohan as Goku's son  and celebrates his 11th birthday, it being shown in flashbacks how he acquires his name and how he had hidden potential within infancy.
