From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki

"Piccolo]] unleashes his Special Beam Cannon, killing Raditz and Goku. Master Roshi, Krillin and Bulma arrive on the scene just in time to bid Goku farewell, and Raditz reveals that two Saiyans even stronger than him are on their way to Earth. Piccolo regenerates his arm and brings Gohan to the wilderness to train him in preparation for the Saiyans' arrival. Kami escorts Goku to the Check-In Station, where King Yemma permits Goku to travel on Snake Way so he may train with King Kai." cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.

Goku's Unusual Journey is the fourth episode of the Vegeta Saga and the fourth episode in the original dubbed Dragon Ball Z series.


Raditz pleads with his brother to reconsider what he is doing, but Goku only holds on tighter. Piccolo finally gathers enough energy for the technique, and fires it at Raditz. The beam goes directly through Raditz, and directly through Goku. The two fall to the ground mortally wounded. Piccolo approaches Raditz who murmurs that Goku foolishly sacrificed his life. Piccolo tells Raditz about the Dragon Balls and the wish they grant, and Raditz relays the message to his two partners in deep space. Raditz tells them that these two are far stronger than him, and that they will arrive in one year. Raditz laughs maniacally, and Piccolo finally puts him out of his misery.

In deep space, Raditz's partners hear of the Dragon Balls and the wish they grant. The shorter of the two, who we later know as Vegeta, says that they are going to wish for eternal life, so they load their space capsule and head for earth. Meanwhile, Bulma, Master Roshi, and Krillin arrive just in time to bid Goku farewell. Goku's body vanishes at the hands of Master Roshi, while everyone is left to mourn his death and prepare for the approaching threat.
