Did Radiz Have The Same Potential As Goku?

Ever since Freiza was resurrected in latest Dragon Ball movie and in Super, fans have been wondering what would happened if other characters had a second chance as well.

Raddits the first main villain we see in Dragon Ball Z, was brother of Goku and at the time had immeasurable strength however, even the likes of Yamcha would soon end up surpassing him.

Raddits is also the first major villain Goku couldn’t convert to be a friend rather than a foe, with Yamcha, Tien and Chaozu all joining forces with Goku, and as a result reaching unimaginable strengths.

Later Piccolo and Vegeta would also follow suit but Raddits, Goku’s only surviving relative, was never really given that opportunity.

So lets say Raddits was given the opportunity to live again, would he have been capable of achieving the heights of Goku?

As we know all Raddits, Vegeta and Goku are full-blooded Saiyans, with Raddits naturally being born significantly stronger than Goku.

However, we cannot use the fact of Raddits’s natural ability to gage on whether he would have been capable of greater power, as Vegeta for example was born a prodigy and we know that Goku has surpassed him on multiple occasions.

But being Saiyan too, Raddits should be more than capable of training and improving his strength to match that of his younger brother.

At a minimum Raddits should be able to transform into a Super Saiyan, if he was to be given the opportunity to train with the other already long surpassed Saiyans.

I cannot say for certain that he could transform into an ascended Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2 or Super Saiyan 3. Maybe with enough training Super Saiyan 2 might be possible but I doubt he could reach the heights of Super Saiyan 3, as not even Vegeta could.

Although there is one transformation that I can confidently say Raddits can achieve, and that is Super Saiyan God.

As this transformation has no strength requirement, all you need is Saiyan blood running through your veins and five Saiyan friends.

Obviously his power would be significantly lower in this form in comparison to Goku however, he is still capable of tapping into the power of the gods, just like any Saiyan with this technique.

But I feel as if It’s unlikely that Raddits could go further than that and unlock the Super Saiyan God Super Saiayn transformation however; I can not say that for certain.

Remember that if Raddits was to have lived, I am sure he would hate to see his younger brother surpass him and so, he may have used that as motivation.

Nevertheless we will most likely never know for certain, unless Raddits does ever return, which I find incredibly unlikely. Therefore, all we can do is assume that he too had similar potential as his younger brother, but we never got to see it.

  1. Another thought provoking Dragon Ball Z post. I’ve often wondered this as well. It is reasonable to say that with training he could become a Super Saiyan, or Super Saiyan 2. He has the same genes as Goku as well as the motivation to not let his younger brother surpass him which might match or maybe even surpass Vegeta’s motivation of having a “lower classed” Saiyan over power him. But as you said we will never know. I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. http://healthynappynerdymommy.com/2017/02/11/the-versatile-blogger-award Keep the great information coming

    • Thank you very much for the nomination and I’m glad you enjoy our content. Its funny how Goku gives everyone a second chance, including Freiza but when it came to Raddits he was easily forgotten.

      • Because unfortunately like in most stories Radditz was a “throw away” character someone to get the story going of sorts, but if given a motive he could be useful by removing the evil like Vegeta and given a purpose
        To learn more about his family and other skills that he had

      • I feel as if it made more sense him turning good then it did Vegeta, as he was Goku’s brother but oh well

  2. I doubt it. Goku were an extreme case and Vegeta were born a prodigy even amongst his own people. The Manga clearly states that Goku breaks the limits of how strong a saiyajin can become during his trip to Namek. Seeing as Raditz were neither a prodigy nor born with the empathy that Goku draws strength from so do I doubt that he would even have been able to surpass Nappa.

    • Yes but Raddits had more natural ability than Goku and may use Goku’s success as motivation. Remember like al Saiyans he would want to be the best and I assume with training he too could have achieved great strength.
