What would happen if Gohan was kidnapped by Raditz?

Post by fadeddreams5 » Sat Jun 06, 2015 7:36 pm

You know, if Raditz killed Goku and Piccolo without ever learning about the dragon balls, what do you think would be of Gohan's life (assuming Raditz didn't kill him for his little anger attack)? Would he become a typical saiyan crony? Would he follow orders, but plan a rebellion?

I feel there's enough content here for a what-if spin-off.
"Dragon Ball once became a thing of the past to me, but after that, I got angry about the live action movie, re-wrote an entire movie script, and now I'm complaining about the quality of the new TV anime. It seems Dragon Ball has grown on me so much that I can't leave it alone." - Akira Toriyama on Dragon Ball Super

He'd be killed by Vegeta or Nappa. Because Vegeta had already stated he doesn't want Saiyan Hybrid children who are running around with battle powers higher than his.

There's a fanfic called Cold World that dealt with Raditz taking Gohan's rise in power for face value, and took him to Nappa and Vegeta. It was decently written, As expected Gohan underwent stockholm syndrome after being a PTO solder and dealing with the horrors that came with it. It's pretty good.

That's hardly the case here, gohan was nowhere near vegetas power level. He could easily disintegrate gohan with a blast.

Gohan could likely end up being stronger then Vegeta, Nappa and Radditz. I'm not sure if Gohan could be strong enough to take out Freeza though. Freeza could end up killing all four of them if they try to fight against them.

Gohan would have died. Raditz, Vegeta and Nappa were attacking a planet that was too dangerous for Raditz to be on, so the whole purpose of him getting Goku was to get out of the way of danger. 10 months travelling to Earth to get Goku while Vegeta and Nappa continue fighting, 10 months travelling to return. That's 20 months of having stalled for time and, once returned, Goku is a big target for the population because he the weakest of the Saiyans. Raditz's plan essentially would have swapped out Goku for Gohan. If Gohan survives, great. If not, who cares? Being as weak as he was, Gohan would have died on day 1.
