Goku and Piccolo are no match for Raditz in direct conflict, so they decide to have Goku distract Raditz while Piccolo gathers energy for an attack strong enough to defeat Raditz. This plan fails, as does Goku's attempt to stop Raditz by grabbing his tail ends when Goku gets tricked by his brother. Raditz tortures Goku, causing Gohan to unleash his latent abilities in a fit of rage, and he strikes Raditz in the chest. Goku uses this opportunity to grab Raditz from behind, allowing Piccolo to use his Makankosappo technique on Raditz - killing them both. Before he succumbs to his wound, Raditz tells his enemies that the other Saiyans will arrive on Earth within a year. Bulma, Krillin, and Master Roshi arrive to witness Goku's death.
