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. 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 Special Beam Cannon technique on Raditz, killing him as well as Goku. Before he succumbs to his wound, Raditz tells his enemies that the other Saiyans will be on Earth within a year. Bulma, Roshi, and Krillin arrive to witness Goku's death.
