You Can't Fight Fate, but you can start a legacy.

Dragon Ball Z: Bardock – The Father of Goku (also known as Doragon Bōru Zetto: Tatta Hitori no Saishū Kessen ~Furīza ni Idonda Zetto Senshi Son Gokū no Chichi~; lit. "Dragon Ball Z: A Lonesome, Final Battle 'The Father of the Z Warrior Son Goku, who Challenged Freeza'") is the first Dragon Ball Z TV Special made by Toei Animation (the second being Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks), airing during the the Freeza Saga, as well as a prequel of the series as a whole.

The special is centered around the Origin Story of Bardock, a low-class Saiyan who is also the father of Kakarot (Goku) and Raditz as he discovers a plot where Freeza intends to destroy the entire Saiyan race via psychic powers given to him by an alien whose race he destroyed the night before. With his new powers, Bardock realizes the visions he receives are no illusion…

The special was popular enough that Akira Toriyama integrated him into the manga, making the Bardock Special canon in Dragon Ball Z Kai. A special called Dragon Ball – Episode of Bardock created in 2011, was made to serve as a What If? sequel, detailing Bardock's survival and eventually becoming a Super Saiyan. A special feature in the Jaco the Galactic Patrolman manga called Dragon Ball Minus essentially serves as a prequel to this special with several changes in the details, solidifying Jaco's Stealth Prequel status to the Dragon Ball story as a whole.

This work contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Heroism: Thanks to Dub Text, both Bardock and Vegeta come off as more sympathetic figures in the Funimation dub then in the original Japanese.
    • In the Japanese version, Bardock is cold and dismissive of Goku when he sees his weak power level and only gains a brief amount of affection for him at the very end when he realises that he is the one who will kill Frieza. In the English dub, he does seem to care about his son more and comments that he wishes he could have held him once before he died.
    • As explained in Lack of Empathy below Vegeta isn't shown caring in any way about his race's destruction and is focused more on his own achievements. In the Dub, the way that the scene plays out and the dialogue used, show that while Vegeta is likely in shock over the news he's choosing to stoically keep his emotions in check and quietly sits in silence afterwards.
  • Bad Boss: As Frieza demonstrates. He kills his own men that he sent out to fight Bardock. This is after his men plea for their lives. He also coldly murdered the Saiyans, who have been nothing but loyal to him because he feared their growing power.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Bardock fails to stop Freeza, but he dies proudly knowing that Goku will finish the job.
  • Blessed with Suck: The Kanassans have the power to see the future... and are powerless to stop their own extinction. Their last act of revenge against the Saiyan is to share this "gift".
  • Breakout Character: So very much for Bardock that along with the movie villain Broly, they have appeared in practically almost every game from this point since Budokai 3. Akira Toriyama made him appear in the manga, a Spin-Off sequel was made for him, and he even appeared in Dragon Ball Minus.
  • Broken Aesop: At least, broken theme. The story of Bardock is that of a low-class Saiyan standing up face to face against the emperor, Freeza. The story doesn't treat Bardock as anything but "a nameless Saiyan" not worth talking about, which is what fuels the tragedy. Despite this, the special felt the need to give Bardock a power level of ten thousand, twice the one the elite warrior Nappa has in the Saiyan saga, turning the character from simple mook to a sort of prodigy.
  • Buried in a Pile of Corpses: This actually saves Bardock's life when he ends up buried beneath the bodies of his comrades after Dodoria's Ki Manipulation, leaving them to think he'd died.
  • Canon Discontinuity: In Dragon Ball Minus, the bonus chapter of Jaco the Galactic Patrolman, Toriyama rewrites Bardock's story.
    • Some changes include: Bardock having a wife named Gine, Goku being three years old instead of a newborn, Bardock and Gine sending Goku to Earth to protect him from Frieza instead of being luck that Goku is sent out just a few minutes before Frieza came to Planet Vegeta, and Frieza personally recalling all the Saiyans home so he can kill them all at once instead of it being a spur of a moment choice. That being said, the chapter only depicts what happened in the preceding weeks before the destruction of Planet Vegeta, so Broad Strokes may still apply.
    • Akira Toriyama confirmed that Bardock is not strong enough to be considered a middle class warrior, making him weaker than Nappa. Which takes his power level of 10,000 out of the continuity.
  • Canon Immigrant: Bardock is the first anime-only character to actually appear in the manga, as Akira Toriyama liked him well enough to have him appear in two panels in the original manga.
  • Cassandra Truth: Bardock attempts to warn a bar full of Saiyans that Freeza is coming to kill them. But they openly mock him, forcing Bardock to face Freeza and his men alone.
  • Characterization Marches On: Bardock in the special displays the traditional Saiyan Blood Knight/Parental Neglect personality, to the point of being disappointed by his newborn son's power level. In Dragon Ball Minus, his personality is reversed, showing that he cares for both his sons, and sends Kakarot to Earth for safety reasons.
  • Curbstomp Battle: In the beginning, Bardock and his crew kills the alien race of Kanassa overnight, Dodoria's men kills Bardock's crew, Bardock kills them in return, Bardock gets one-shotted by Dodoria (but survives).
  • Death by Origin Story: Who else? This is Bardock's story and he's long dead by the first episode of Dragon Ball.
  • Death by Irony: Invoked by Toolo, who gives the ability to see the future not to Frieza, who slaughtered his race to obtain it, but to Bardock, to torture him with the knowledge of the death of his race.
  • Determinator: The Kanassans fought to the bitter end, and Bardock…well, in his attempt to kill Frieza he flies into space and literally fly-punches 30+ Mookswithout stopping.
  • Defiant to the End: Toolo, the last Kanassan, chooses to give Bardock the ability to see the future while being powerless to do anything about it as his last act, then informs it of what he has done, and dies laughing while on fire, and Bardock, the last Saiyan to fight Freeza, faces death with dignity to the end while burning inside the Supernova after he tried to stop it.
  • Die Laughing: As said above, Toolo dies laughing while on fire. As for Bardock, he sees Goku facing Freeza in the future (which only occurs when the two face each other with the latter in his final form) and smiles, knowing that his son will avenge him.
  • Doomed by Canon: It's a prequel to Dragon Ball. While there are minor plot-holes (Gohan meeting the baby Goku in a bamboo forest rather than in a crevasse, resulting in a violent encounter), it's mainly to show Goku's father before he (unsuccessfully) attempts to kill Freeza.
  • Dying Curse: Toolo gives Bardock a rather sadistic one: to see the impending genocide of the Saiyan race and be powerless to stop it. He also gave him the gift of prophecy to make sure it happened.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Bardock, as much a Chaotic EvilBlood Knight as he is, does value his teammates. Also, despite considering Goku to be weak, Bardock did eventually care about him as he is dying.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Zarbon and Dodoria are both merciless killers who have no problem with Frieza slaughtering the Saiyan race but both are noticeably shocked when Frieza orders them to open the ship's hatch so he can nuke the planet while many of their own men are still in the crossfire.
  • Fantastic Racism: Although Frieza tries to act dismissive of the Saiyans' growing power, often calling them monkeys, it's obvious that the reason why he decided to wipe them out is out of fear of them overthrowing him one day. (As well as the fear that the legend of the Super Saiyan will prove to be true.)
  • Faux Affably Evil: Frieza remains unchanged in this aspect. He is generally polite and relatively cordial when directly addressing his minions; listening to their grievances and willing to let minor infractions slide. However he'll still blow up your planet and marvel at its destruction with the exact same mannerisms.

    Frieza (watching Planet Vegeta explode): Oh my!! This is stupendous!! What a great show!!

  • Foregone Conclusion: Bardock could not stop Freeza from destroying the Saiyan race, but his hope relies on his son, Kakarot, who will face Freeza in adulthood.
  • Generation Xerox: Goku and Bardock are actually more alike than you think. They value their friends so much that killing said friends is the best guarantee that they will do their damnedest to end you.
  • Hope Springs Eternal: At the end of the special, Bardock is dead and Planet Vegeta is destroyed by Frieza. Kakarot, however, escapes the genocide by chance and grows up to become Goku, the Saiyan destined to defeat Frieza.
  • Hypocrite: Bardock, a low-class Saiyan soldier himself, dismisses his own newborn son’s low power level, calling it “average”.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: Since this is a prequel to Dragon Ball, Frieza gets away with killing almost all the Saiyans and laughs happily as Planet Vegeta explodes. Bardock's final vision, however, is one of Goku fighting Frieza on Namek. So despite everything, Bardock dies knowing that his son will avenge him.
  • Kill 'Em All: As a Foregone Conclusion, Vegeta, Nappa and Raditz are the only survivors of the Saiyan race (and by extension, Vegeta's younger brother Tarble, a now canonized Broly and his father Paragus). Goku escapes the destruction by pure luck (an oversight Freeza looked upon). Dragon Ball Minus has Goku's escape taking place a month earlier, while the other three's survival is explained by Vegeta outright pulling a "Who cares?" when Freeza ordered all Saiyans back on the planet.
  • Lack of Empathy: In the Japanese version a young Vegeta is shown at the end of the special being informed by Nappa that Planet Vegeta has been destroyed and most of the Saiyan race has been killed. Vegeta merely gives a disinterested "oh?" when Nappa tells him and asks if there is anything else before commenting that they should move on and find another planet to slaughter.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Although the Saiyans comes off as somewhat sympathetic since they were killed by their own boss because he feared their growing power, the Saiyans were still a race who regularly performed genocide. So them being the victims of a similar genocide is karma. On a personal level for Bardock, he is cursed to see a future that he can't prevent, just like Kanassans he slaughtered.
  • Moral Myopia: Bardock is furious that his crew is betrayed and murdered by Frieza's men and goes on a bloody rampage to avenge them. Although noble and understandable, Bardock and his crew are still hired murderers who regularly perform genocide.
  • Parental Neglect: When Tora asks Bardock is he remembers what day his son was born, he bluntly states that he doesn’t but it was a long time ago. He may have been referring to his eldest son Raditz, as compared to Goku who was only born a day ago. Then Fasha tries to urge him to visit his newborn son since they have enough time before their next assignment, but Bardock scoffs at the idea of “father-son bonding” since Goku will end up sent away towards Earth. Then he finally meets Goku at the nursery and checks his power level, much to his disappointment that’s it’s only an “average level” then runs off to his next mission, proclaiming that he thought his son would have been something special. In the end does Bardock finally come to love Goku, lamenting that he never got the chance to hold him, but he never thinks about Raditz, even in his dying moments.
  • Prophecy Twist: The last thing Bardock sees before he dies is Goku facing Freeza (in his first form) in Namek. Goku does in fact face him again in his first form. In Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’. Double points that he does in fact kill Frieza in that movie instead of on Namek.
  • Prequel: To the Dragon Ball series as a whole, detailing Goku's father's backstory and the eventual demise of the Saiyan race.
  • Psychic Powers: Bardock sees the visions of the future, the first part showing Goku meeting Bulma in Dragon Ball all the way to the final parts of Goku's third tournament against Piccolo. Later on, Goku using Kaio-Ken (which distracts him), and Goku fighting Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z.
  • "Reason You Suck" Speech: Toolo gives Bardock a brief but stinging one during a vision.

    Toolo: But take heart, Bardock. A savior has been born. One who has the power to save the innocent from people like Frieza. And you.

  • Say My Name: Bardock screams out his son's name upon his own death.
  • Second-Hand Storytelling: As we learn later on, we did find out King Vegeta discovered Freeza's treachery and attempted to reclaim his son, but was killed in the process. This is one of the reasons why Freeza plans to kill off the Saiyan race as Bardock attempts to warn the other Saiyans. Unlike King Vegeta, whom Freeza shrugs off as being another assassin, Bardock attempts to rebel against him, which gave him concern to the point that Freeza actually remembers his name when confronted by Goku on Namek.
  • Shout-Out: The special features an insert song titled "Solid State Scouter", a homage to the 1979 album Solid State Survivor by influential Japanese Synth-PopsupergroupYellow Magic Orchestra.
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: Bardock sees the future where the Saiyans are killed and tries to prevent it. He defeats a crowd of Frieza's men, but Frieza himself is still out of his league and kills him with no difficulty.
  • Tranquil Fury: When wave after wave of his soldiers fail to stop an advancing Bardock, Freeza, whose back is turned, politely asks Zarbon to prepare the entrance. Zarbon realizes what this means and asks about their men's safety but hurriedly complies just by seeing Freeza's arms unfold. This act most probably saved his own life as the camera pans to Freeza and shows that he is very angry.
  • True Companions: Bardock and his crew. After Dodoria and Dodoria's men kill off his friends, Bardock goes absolutely berserk and slaughters Dodoria's troops.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: The Kanassans knew the Saiyans would kill them on a night of full moon, so they prepared for the fight to try and change their fate, and they were still destroyed. At the same time, Bardock charged at Freeza in a desperate attempt to stop him, only to die against his overwhelming power.

 

Bardock's Death

While Bardock's efforts to prevent planet Vegeta's destruction by Freeza are in vein, he goes out with a smile knowing that Kakarrot (better known as Goku, will finish the job for him.

Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku

Release date(s)

October 17, 1990

Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku (たったひとりの~フリーザに挑んだZ戦士 孫悟空の父~,Tatta Hitori no Saishū Kessen ~Furīza ni Idonda Zetto Senshi Son Gokū no Chichi~, lit. "A Final, Solitary Battle: The Father of Z-Warrior Son Gokū, Who Challenged Freeza") is the first Dragon Ball ZTV Special, which is an addition to the popular manga and anime series.

It first aired on October 17, 1990. Bridge Entertainment's title is The Father of Goku. Funimation dubbed it into English in 2000. It was the first Dragon Ball Z feature to be dubbed with Funimation's in house voice cast. The special was re-released in a remastered box set bundled with Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks in May 2008. Funimation released a remastered single version on September 15, 2009.

Summary

This special is the story of Bardock, a low-class Saiyan warrior. At the outset of the story, his son Kakarot, having just been born on Planet Vegeta, is being prepared to be sent to Earth in order to destroy all life on the planet. Meanwhile, Bardock and his crew are on an assignment to exterminate all the life forms of Planet Kanassa. After the planet is seemingly devoid of all other life, Bardock and crew rest up and celebrate their victory until one remaining warrior catches him off guard and decides to give himthe "gift" of seeing visions of the future. This gives him the ability to see the destruction of Planet Vegeta, and almost the entire Saiyan race along with it, at the hands of their master, Frieza. He also sees the salvation of the planet Earth through his son Kakarot.

This prediction becomes reality when Frieza decides to destroy the entire Saiyan race. Within Frieza's spaceship, Frieza is being briefed by his top two henchmen, Zarbon and Dodoria, in regards to the occurrences in their routine interplanetary galactic trade and conquering. Recent news reveals that the Saiyans' strength constantly grows after each battle. Zarbon informs Frieza that a band of low-class Saiyans had taken over Kanassa in just a few days. Dodoria states that the job to take Kanassa had been in the pool for months and that not even Frieza's elite squadrons could take Kanassa so easily. Frieza, Zarbon and Dodoria contemplate the fate of the Saiyans due to the growing power of the species and decide to take action in order to avoid repercussions, as the Saiyans might pose a great threat to them in the future. Zarbon advises Frieza to eliminate the growing threat before it poses a greater problem. Dodoria and his elite fighters are ordered to eradicate Bardock and his teammates.

Bardock dismisses the visions he had and goes to join his team on Planet Meat, but soon discovers his friends are all dead. Bardock's team was massacred by Frieza's henchman Dodoria and his elites. He battles the ones responsible and defeats them all, but is easily overwhelmed by a single mouth blast from Dodoria. He is left severely injured, but manages to make it back to Planet Vegeta passing his son along the way who has been sent to Earth. Though Bardock attempts to convey the danger that they are all in to the other Saiyans, since he has now realized that Frieza is going to destroy them all, everyone laughs at his claim. However, the Saiyans are scared when Bardock yells at them for their disbelief, and Bardock alone begins one final assault against Frieza.

During the assault, he succeeds in killing many of Frieza's minor soldiers to such an extent that Frieza, witnessing Bardock's actions with barely contained fury, orders for Zarbon to prepare his hoverpod for liftoff. Zarbon expresses confusion on why Frieza would want to leave the ship, although Frieza then subtly threatens Zarbon for questioning his orders, with Zarbon, intimidated by his boss, promptly making preparations. Frieza then emerges as one of Frieza's soldiers puts Bardock into a headlock, with the soldier releasing him, only for Bardock to give a speech on how the Saiyans are free from the tyrant, and then sending the Final Spirit Cannon to Frieza himself in a bid to avenge all those killed in the tyrant's name (and in the Japanese version, voices an interest in taking over the Frieza Force). Bardock seems about to change the future via his actions. However, Frieza counters the attack with his Supernova, which kills Bardock, many of his own soldiers, and destroys Planet Vegeta itself, all while uttering a maniacal laugh. As he is dying, Bardock sees one more vision of the future: his son Kakarot facing Frieza. Being assured that Kakarot would be the one to kill Frieza, Bardock gives a small smile as he disintegrates along with the planet. As the planet is on the verge of blowing up, Frieza continues laughing at its destruction, as well as telling Dodoria and Zarbon to watch the "beautiful fireworks". After his demise, Bardock wishes his son, Kakarot, to take care. At the same moment, Kakarot, who is still in the space pod, wakes up.

Elsewhere, having just completed an assignment on a far-off world, Vegeta is informed of his homeworld's destruction. His pride keeps him from expressing his shock and he remains outwardly emotionless. Soon afterward, Kakarot's space pod touches down on Earth, where he is found by an elderly man named Gohan, and giggles happily in the old man's arms. Gohan then decides to care for the boy as his own grandson and renames him Goku. The film ends with a montage of Goku's many heroic deeds on Earth, leading to his battle with Frieza.

Releases

Bardock - The Father of Goku was released on March 19, 2003 as part of Dragon Box Z, Vol. 1 in Japan. It was re-released on August 5, 2011 as part of the Dragon Ball Z Special Selection along with The History of Trunks. This DVD had a higher video bitrate but a lower audio bitrate.

FUNimation released Bardock - The Father of Goku for VHS and DVD on January 31, 2001 in both edited and uncut forms.[1] As was the case with all previous releases, the special was released in an unformatted 4:3 aspect ratio. The DVD featured a new English dub with a soundtrack of American rock bands and a score done by Dale Kelly, Andy Baylor and Mark Akin. It premiered on Toonami on September 5, 2003, kicking off a month-long event called "DBZ Movies," during which a Dragon Ball Z feature aired every Friday. Bardock aired in an edited format and also included pieces from the Faulconer Productions score from Dragon Ball Z in some scenes when normally licensed music would have been heard on the DVD and VHS. This was likely done because FUNimation no longer had the licenses for some of the songs they had included in the soundtrack. This version of the special has never been released to home video.

FUNimation re-released Bardock - The Father of Goku and The History of Trunks on DVD and Blu-ray on February 19, 2008 as part of their "Double Feature" line.[2] This new set featured a brand-new widescreen transfer from Video Post & Transfer and a new audio mix for the English dub featuring the original Japanese score done by Shunsuke Kikuchi in addition to the old mix featuring the American rock bands and the Kelly/Baylor/Akin score. FUNimation also released each Double Feature DVD individually on September 15, 2009, but both went out of print soon after.[3]

Trivia

  • Although it bears the Dragon Ball Z logo and opening, Bardock - Father of Goku is a prequel to Dragon Ball; the special takes place 12 years before the events of the Emperor Pilaf Saga.
  • In the Funimation dub's plot, Frieza apparently wishes to capture Kanassa because those who dwell there develop psychic powers. However, in the original story, Bardock's crew had no idea why Frieza wants to capture Kanassa.
  • In this special it is shown that Bardock fights his way through Frieza's men to get to Frieza himself. However, in the anime, when Frieza speaks of the event in a flashback, it is shown that the men Bardock fought in the special were actually with him on an attack against Frieza, which is actually a dubbing error on Funimation's part.
  • Vegeta is shown to have been on a far-off world at the time of Planet Vegeta's destruction, whereas an episode of Dragon Ball Z reveals Vegeta is said and shown to have been on Frieza's Spaceship at the time of Planet Vegeta's destruction.
  • King Vegeta does not appear in this movie despite the fact that he was killed in the same time period.
  • At the end of the special, baby Goku is shown to already be the happy loving boy he is in Dragon Ball when Gohan finds him, despite the fact it had already been established in an episode of Dragon Ball Z that Goku displayed tendencies typical of infant Saiyans and did not lose them until he hit his head. In addition Grandpa Gohan finds Goku a small distance from his pod during the day, while in Reunions it was implied he found him near his pod during the night. Strangely, this special actually earlier features the same scene from Reunions.
  • In one of Bardock's final premonitions before his death, he sees Goku standing face-to-face with first-form Frieza. Goku never met Frieza in his first form. Though it can be argued that Bardock only knows of Frieza in his first form, as Frieza stated no one has seen his final form or any of his other forms beyond his first form. So Bardock would have no idea what it would look like, which is why he sees Goku staring down his first form. Bardock's visions are also somewhat symbolic than objective, meaning they usually don't have to look exactly like how they would transpire. However, as this special was aired before Goku took on Frieza in the manga, that can be explained that Toei didn't know about it (Goku faces first form Frieza on the cover of volume 23 of the manga).
    • It is also noted that Goku actually met Frieza in his first form after he was resurrected in Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’. It lasted for a short time before transforming to his final form.
  • The scene where Goku's space pod approaches Earth shows an Earth nearly identical to the real world Earth, with North and South America clearly visible.
  • In Dragon Ball Z Kai (the recut and rebroadcast version of the Dragon Ball Z), the first episode used the footage of this special in the very beginning of the episode. Even in Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge, the same footage was shown, even though it was seen on Cooler's Spaceship.
  • In the original American DVD release with subtitles, Bardock's name was spelled as "Burdock". It has been changed to the more familiar "Bardock" in all recent DVD releases of this special, however other movies released as Double Features still use the "Burdock" spelling.
  • Akira Toriyama has stated that this is his favorite movie - and that it was the kind of story he "absolutely wouldn't draw".[5]
  • One of the eyecatch sequence features a bunch of Saiyans in the background. Some of these Saiyans are actually rough sketches of Bardock's team that were done prior to the special's release, and many of them were changed drastically for the final special.
  • While traveling to Planet Vegeta to destroy it, Frieza says that it is "as red as a Blood Ruby." Blood Rubies were a major part of the plot for the movie Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies; at the end of this movie, Shenron removes all of the blood rubies from the Earth, and it is unknown what happened to them after this.
  • This was where the music from The Tree of Might was first heard, outside of the films.
  • Clips from this special were reused for the beginning of Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge (both for the main prologue, and for the scenes aboard Cooler's ship regarding screen footage) as well as certainepisodes of the anime.
  • Although this wasn't dubbed in Filipino-English (though clips from this special was used in their dub of Movie 5), there was a cover of the ending theme in their language.
