    == Son Goku ==

    Son Goku (? ??, Son Gok?, addressed only as Goku in most English adaptations) is the main character of the [[Dragonball]] and [[Dragonball Z]] television series' in addition to the Anime-only [[Dragonball GT]]. Son Goku has two sons, [[Son Gohan]] and [[Son Goten]], the former whom is named after his adoptive grandfather, and is married to [[Chi-Chi]], daughter of [[Gyu-Mao]]. Being the son of [[Bardock]], Son is of the [[Saiyan]] race and was the first Saiyan to become a Super Saiyan during the course of the series. With signiture martial arts techniques like the [[Kamehame-ha]] and his own ''Dragon Fist'', Son is by far of the most powerful fighter in the '''Dragonball''' franchise by the end of [[Dragonball GT]] and the original comic.

    == Son Gohan==

    Son Gohan is the first born son of Son Goku and Chi-Chi. As a child when Gohan lost control of his emotions his ki was known to grow exponentially. Eventually, Gohan was the first to become a Super Saiyan 2 and defeated Cell. In the Majin Buu arc Gohan had his inner power awakened and became the 'Ultimate Warrior' surpassing both his father and quite possibly Gotenks, the fusion of his younger brother Son Goten and Trunks.

    == Vegeta ==

    == Piccolo ==


    '''The Twenty-Third Tenka?ichi Budôkai'''


    Piccolo, or under the pseudonym he chooses for tournaments, ?Demon Junior?, is the reincarnation of the Great Demon King Piccolo whom was slain by Son Gokû, the demon lord spat out an egg which hatched into his reincarnated form, a much more powerful demon than the original. Three years after his ?father?s? defeat, the reincarnated son of the Great Demon King entered the twenty-third Tenka?ichi Budôkai (literally translating to ?Strongest Under the Heavens Tournament?. Known in FUNimation?s English dub as the ?World Martial Arts Tournament?) under the aforementioned alias of ?Demon Junior? (FUNimation chose to use ?Ma Junior? for their English dub, ?Ma? being Japanese for ?demon?).

    In the quarter-finals of the Tenka?ichi Piccolo faced his arch-nemesis? best friend, Kuririn. Piccolo defeats Kuririn due to a forfeit, however not without slight difficulty. In the semi-finals Piccolo faces Shen (taken from ?Shen Long?, the name of the dragon whom is summoned via the Dragonballs. Shen is known as ?Hero? in FUNimation?s English dub) whom is truly the Earth?s God, ?Lord Kami? (Kami being Japanese for ?god?. In FUNimation?s English version Kami is called the ?Guardian of the Earth? as opposed to its god) in disguise. Shen and Piccolo speak in an alien language before the incognito God attempts to seal Piccolo using Mutaito?s Mafûba (Demon Concealing Wave); however Piccolo?being superior to his former self?reflects the sealing wave back on Shen and seals Lord Kami within the bottle which he had hoped to seal the revived Demon King in.

    In the final round of the Tenka?ichi Piccolo faces Son Gokû whom he had devoted the past three years to defeating, in one of the series? most brutal of battle Piccolo is eventually defeated once again despite turning Papaya Island into a deserted wasteland with his power.




    '''Freeza?s Siege of Namek'''


    While dead, Piccolo is allowed to retain his body and train under the martial arts master Lord Kaiô (known in the FUNimation English dub as King Kai). After but six days of training on Lord Kaiô?s world Piccolo is wished back to life by Polunga, the original Namekian dragon. Arriving on his home world Piccolo feels nostalgia for a land he had long forgotten. Merging with [[Nail]] Piccolo?s power increases to the point that he is able to contend with Freeza?s second form. Freeza transforms into his third form where he quickly defeats Piccolo.

    Later, Piccolo borrows [[ki]] from Gohan and Kuririn and attempts to by time for Son Gokû as he prepares a [[Genki Dama]] (literally ?Spirit Ball?). Piccolo is successful and Son Gokû unleashes the Genki Dama, however Freeza survives and fires off a fatal Death Beam attack which pierces Piccolo?s chest. Thinking him for dead, in addition to Kuririn, Son Gokû explodes in rage and becomes the first Super Saiyan in one thousand years.

    Later, on Earth, Piccolo?s health is restored by Dende.


    '''The Boy from the Future'''


    One year after the battle on Namek Piccolo and the others sense two large ki approaching Earth, Freeza has survived his duel to the death against Son Gokû on Namek, and now brings with him to Earth both more power (with the help of cybernetic enhancements) and his father, King Cold. Piccolo and the other?s congregate only to witness a mysterious teenage boy effortlessly slay Freeza and King Cold, as a Super Saiyan.

    Three hours later Son Gokû returns to Earth, surprised by the young man?s presence. Overhearing?from afar?Son?s conversation with the boy from the future, Piccolo explains how they must prepare for the arrival of two cyborgs in three years time without revealing the boy?s identity. Piccolo chooses to live with and train with Son Gokû and Gohan.


    '''The Androids of Doctor Gero'''


    Three years later Piccolo and the others?in Son Gokû?s absence due to illness?face off with Androids #17 and #18 only to be crushed. Deciding he has no other option Piccolo chooses to remerge with Lord Kami whom had discarded his inner evil many years prior. Now, with his true power Piccolo returns to the Earth from the heavens and comes across a strange being, one who has a ki signature akin to Son Gokû, Vegeta, and Freeza among many others. This being, [[Cell]] is powerful, however not enough so to defeat Piccolo whom cleverly tricked him into revealing his agenda of absorbing numbers 17 and 18 to achieve his perfect form.

    Frustratingly, Cell escapes Piccolo?s grasp with the help of his Taiyo-ken (literally ?Fist of the Sun?; FUNimation?s English dub uses the name ?Solar Flare?) to absorb humans to add to his power. Later on the Androids arrive at [[Kame-Sen?nin]]?s home to battle Son Gokû, however Piccolo challenges #17 to a rematch. In a much more even battle Piccolo does his best to destroy #17 however he inadvertently draws Cell to his location (knowing the Androids would be the only ones capable of forcing Piccolo to raise his ki so high). Despite his best efforts #17 is absorbed and Piccolo defeated. Thanks to Son Gokû Piccolo lives to fight another day.


    '''The Cell Games'''


    Despite training in the Room of Spirit and Time Piccolo finds he still has difficulty doing battle with the children of Cell, the Cell Juniors. After Super Saiyan 2 Gohan defeats the Cell Juniors Piccolo marvels at how his pupil as grown, during Gohan?s last attempt at defeating Cell Piccolo and the other?s join in to distract Cell.

    After the Cell Games Piccolo lives the next seven years with Earth?s new god, Dende and Mr. Popo, at God?s Sanctuary.


    '''The Twenty-Fifth Tenka?ichi Budôkai'''


    Seven years later Piccolo enters the Twenty-Fifth Tenka?ichi Budôkai?under the name of Demon Junior?however forfeits his first round match against who he learns to be a Kaiôshin (who are above even the Kaiô in the Afterlife?s hierarchy). After Gohan?s ki is stolen by Yamu and Spopovich, Piccolo, Son Gokû, Kaiôshin, Kuririn, Son Gohan, and Kibito follow the two henchmen to their master, Babbidi who wishes to use it to awaken Majin Buu from his slumber. Dabura, Demon King of the Demon Plain, uses his saliva to turn Piccolo and Kuririn to stone, however his eventual death would reverse this.


    '''An Impossible Task! To Teach Fusion!!'''


    When Son Gokû?s time in the living realm expires Piccolo is charged with teaching the fusion technique to [[Son Goten]] and [[Trunks]]. Eventually Piccolo manages to help the boys master the technique and in the course of the battle with Majin Buu he helps the fused Gotenks with the Super Buu Buu Volleyball technique.

    After Son Gohan appears, having had his inner power brought to the surface, and pummels Majin Buu Piccolo and Gotenks are absorbed by the demon, unwillingly giving Buu his intelligence and Gotenks his power.

    Eventually Son Gokû and Vegeta free Piccolo and the other?s from Majin Buu, however Buu?now in his original, smaller form?destroys Earth and the Namekian warrior with it. Using the Namekian Dragonballs Dende brings Piccolo back to life and he gives his ki to Son Gokû?s Super Genki Dama to destroy Buu once and for all.


    '''The Final Goodbye'''


    Ten years after Buu?s defeat at the latest Tenka'ichi Budôkai Son Gokû takes his reincarnation?Uub?in his wing so as to teach him to use his true power so the Earth would have a new protector and he a new training partner. Piccolo bids his goodbye to his former arch-nemesis as the young at heart Son Gokû flies off into the sunset.

    == Kuririn ==

    Kuririn (known as Krillin in the English version of the television series) is Son Goku's best friend and training partner since they were still boys under the wing of Kame'senin (known as Master Roshi in the English version of the television series).

    == Future Trunks ==

    == Son Goten ==

    == Trunks ==

    == Freeza ==

    == Cell ==

    I feel we should fold this into the "List of Dragon Ball Primary Characters" article and retitle that one to "List of Dragon Ball Franchise Primary Characters" or some sort. There's no real reason for two articles that will primarily cover the same characters.

    Not to double post, but I want to make sure this isn't overlooked. This articles a mess, so instead of outright merging it with the other one I'd prefer to totally can it, if possible.

    If you have a delete tab at the top of the article then you can (in fact PM me what options you do have so I know what members see in contrast to myself). Feel free to cut loose on edits & the functions you're allowed to do.
