Name: Son Gokou/Kakarot
Race: Saiyan
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black

Son Gokou(Goku) is a pure hearted man whom would do anything for his friends. He is constantly striving to be better in every way. He even sacrifices himself after the il Shenlong battle so all his friends can be revived. Instead of destroying Dr. Gero before the androids were created, he chose to instead train for their arrival. He always has a positive attitude and always looks for a way to succeed, as when he teleported Cell to another planet seconds before Cell was to blow up Earth. Gokou is a Saiyan, and was sent to take Earth over when he was a child. However Gokou hit his head and forgot his mission, thus becoming a kind loving boy. Gokou's real name is Kakarot, and as a Saiyan he loves to fight. Overall Son Gokou is pure hearted, forgiving, and very understanding, as he let Vegeta live after their countless battles. Gokou trains with many people. Among the many are Muten(Master) Roshi, King Kai, and (most importantly)....himself. He really pushes himself to the limit while he trains in his spaceship on his way to Namek. He forces himself to train in 100 times normal gravity which is no ordinary feat. He is also the first man to turn Super Saiyan in about oh......a thousand years! While he is Super Saiyan his strength is greatly increased. His hair also turns gold and his eyes turqoise. On the other side, Gokou can be quite dense and makes a few of his own bluffs throughout Dragon Ball, where he tells his son before he dies, I quote, "Dont worry, you'll see me again when you die." Everyone breaks down crying. Admitting he can be a dumb ox sometimes, he also is very kind hearted and an all around great guy.

Name: Gohan
Race: 1/2 Saiyan, 1/2 Human
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black

Gohan is the son of Gokou and Chi Chi. He shares many characteristics that Gokou does, and even becomes stronger than his father for a short period of time during the Cell Saga when he turns Super Saiyan 2. He is introduced when Gokou goes to a reunion to see Muten Roshi and Kuririn, which the party is crashed by Raditz. Before Vegeta and Nappa arrive he trains with Piccolo, and he also trains in the Room of Spirit and Time during the Android/Cell Saga. He also receives 2 power upgrades, one from Guru, the eldest Namek during the Freeza saga, that unleashed part of Gohans hidden potential, which made him stronger than Kuririn and Guldo, a member of the Ginyu Squad. The other power up was from Kaioshin which I beleive was in the Majin Buu saga. This released all of his hidden potential, allowing him to show his true Saiyan-Human strength. Dragon Ball Z is really "Gohan's story, but for some reason, Gokou is still the main character. He is also somewhat of a nerd, his mom makes him study all the time. He wears cool clothes has a neat haircut, but in GT you can sure tell that all that studing really does help, and he is like a rocket scientist.

Name: Kuririn (Krillin)
Race: Human
Hair: None
Eyes: Black

Kuririn is a short bald monk who trains under Muten Roshi in his early years. This is where he meets Son Gokou, and the two become best friends for life. He is about as strong as Gohan up until where they fight the Ginyu Force. He gets a power upgrade from Guru, but doesn't have as much hidden potential as Gohan does, so Gohan in a sense gets a bigger power upgrade and becomes stronger. Kuririn never plays too big of a role in Dragon Ball Z/GT, but he does have his moments, such as hitting Vegeta with what was left of Gokous Sprit Bomb. Later on in DBZ he grows his hair out after not needing to keep it shaved because he is no longer a monk, and marries Artificial Human #18 and has a little girl, Marron.

Name: Vegeta
Race: Saiyan
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black

Vegeta is the prince of the planet Vegeta (aka Planet Plant before the Saiyans took it over) and the strongest Saiyan warrior for awhile in DBZ. He comes to Earth, searching for immortality. He is defeated by Earth's warriors, but even after he is let go by Kuririn and Gokou, he still seeks revenge and travels to Namek in search for the Dragon Balls there. However he learns over the series that good will always triumph over evil. And thats why Gokou was able to reach such strengths, as he was pure hearted. On Earth he raises a family with Bulma (the lucky bastard). He has 2 children, Trunks, a male, and Bra, a female. During the battle with Majin Buu, he realizes that he never gave his son Trunks the respect and attention he deserved, and this ends in a hug with his son. Vegeta is truly pure hearted, although he doesnt show it 99% of the time. He learns to love and care for his family over time, which makes him truly a very interesting character, and he plays one of the more significant roles throughout Dragon Ball Z and GT.

Name: Bulma
Race: It would appear hell demon, but she is human.
Hair: Green
Eyes: Green

Ah yes....Bulma...she is introduced in early Dragon Ball and plays a pretty significant role throughout all Dragon Ball/Z/GT. She invents countless devices for the Z gang to use, without which they most likely would have been annihalated. Examples: Dragon radar (used to locate dragon balls), she manages to screw around with a scouter and gets it to display numbers in english, and the Brute ray (basically artificial moonlight from a gun, this causes Vegeta to turn Super Saiyan 4). She marries Vegeta and has two children, Trunks and Bra. (Her name in japanese is bloomer, the things cheerleaders wear under their skirts) And, for a cartoon character, shes pretty hot I must admit (brolly said that). Oh, what else is there about Bulma....well her entire personality can be described in a single word....B*TCH. She's the biggest stuck up, stupid snob in the entire universe. It's actually quite hard to explain, if you've seen any episodes, Im sure you know what I mean.

Name: Piccolo
Race: Namek
Hair: None
Eyes: Black

Piccolo, just like Vegeta, started out evil but then switched to the side of good. He is the offspring of Piccolo Daimao. Daimao was a true enemy of Son Gokou, but was defeated by him in the original Dragon Ball. Before he died, Daimao spit out an egg, Piccolo. Piccolo was born to seek revenge. And he probably would have done a decent job of it, except Gokou's brother Raditz arrives on Earth, forcing Gokou and Piccolo to team up. From this point on they are allies, although Piccoloas doesn't take a liking to Gokou he does to Gohan. He really shows a lot of affection for Gohan throughout the series and truly shows it when he gives his life for little Gohan...

Name: Kami
Race: Namek
Hair: None
Eyes: Black

Kami is the guardian of Earth, and lives on Kami's tower with his odd looking assisstant, Mr. Popo. Kami never does anything all that important, other than convincing King Yama to let Gokou travel snake way. He competed with Garlic to be god of Earth, but Garlic turned out to be evil, and, obviously, Kami won. On a side note, he became the strongest Z warrior for a short time when he fused with Piccolo during the Android/Cell saga.

Name: Muten Roshi (or Master Roshi)
Race: Human
Hair: White
Eyes: Sunglasses

Muten Roshi..most likely the most important of the Z fighters not counting Gokou, Vegeta, Gohan and...well maybe not. He is a pervert, and one of the few DB characters you see constantly on the toilet. And do I mean CONSTANTLY! Well other than that, he teaches Gokou and Kuririn in the original DB, and he invents none other than the Kamehameha (aka the turtle shot) and it took him 30 years to master it. Well too bad that he just didn't tell Gokou to do it, because little ol' Son Gokou got it on his first attempt. Roshi is good friends with everyone, and lives in a pink house with Kame House written on it on an island in the middle of the ocean. Oh yeah, did I mention he lives with a talking turtle?

Name: Chi Chi
Race: Human
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black

The wife of Gokou (they get married in the end of Dragon Ball, after she slaps Gokou for thinking marriage was some kind of food), daughter of Ox King, mother of Gohan, bitch. Another one to add to the list. She is very stupid and makes Gohan study all the time. Geez, with these stupidity genes from Gokou, and evil demon genes from Chi Chi, I wonder how Gohan is the way he is....

Name: Goten
Race: 1/2 Saiyan, 1/2 Human
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black

Goten is the second son of Gokou and looks almost exactly like him. He trains with Gohan for awhile, and greatly surprises Gohan when Goten turns Super Saiyan at 5 years of age. He can do this because Gokou turned Super Saiyan before Goten was born. He hangs out with Trunks, the son of Vegita, and the two are nearly inseperable. They're like brothers. During the Majin Buu saga, they learn a fusion technique, and become Gotenks. Goten isnt into fighting as much as Gokou is, and had to be forced to join the Tenchai Budukai by his father.

Name: Trunks
Race: 1/2 Saiyan, 1/2 Human
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black

Trunks is the son of Vegeta and Bulma. He comes from a completely different storyline than the Z characters, i'll try to explain it as simple as i can. Once everyone returns from Namek and lives on Earth, Gokou contracts a heart disease and dies. Dr Gero creates the androids, and everyone is killed, because Gokou isnt there to help. Everyone except Gohan and Trunks. Gohan trains Trunks, but Gohan is killed in an encounter with the androids. So now, the only Z fighter alive is Trunks. He travels back in time under the encouragement of his mother, defeats Freeza while he's there, gives Gokou the cure to his heart disease that he will get, and then heads back to his own time. So now, gokou has the cure and he will live thru his disease. Everyone knows about the androids future arrival, and they all begin training. Trunks is born in this new timeline, etc etc. Trunks is good friends with Goten, and they are like brothers. They can fuse to become Gotenks.

Name: Yamcha
Race: Human
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black

Yamcha looks very similar to Gokou, except he has ratty hair. He also has a scar in the shape of an X on his cheek. He is stronger than Chaouzu but not as strong as Tien. He is inseparable from Bulma, well not really, he is a major flirt. He dates her in DB and DBZ but she dumps him because he always "takes other girls out." Yamcha is also into getting cruisers and new cars n' stuff, but most of the time they get blown up ^_^ He never plays too big of a role in any of the series, but he is good friends with Gokou. He is also good friends with Puar, a tiny blue cat like creature with a pea for a brain.

Name: Puar
Race: Cat
Hair: Blue
Eyes: Big

Puar follows Yamcha around and basically bugs everyone else. She is almost
similar to Oolong, but pervert. And Puar is able to shape shift, and keep that way as long as she wants unlike oolong who has to rest.

Name: Tienshinhan
Race: Human?
Hair: None
Eyes: Black

Tien is a tall, bald guy with three eyes, one in the center of his forehead. He invents many useful techniques throughout Dragon Ball, the most useful is probably being the Solar Flare, which is used to reflect sunlight but the sun must be out to use it. Tien's race is unknown for sure, but he looks just like a human, except for his third eye. He was once an assassin trained by one of Muten Roshi's arch enemy, and was out to kill Chaouzu, but he became best friends with him. Chaouzu and Tien met Gokou and the Z gang at a marial arts tournament, the Tenchai Budukai.

Name: Chaouzu
Race: Human (He kinda looks like a doll doesnt he?)
Hair: Unknown
Eyes: Black

Chaouzu was a prince that was supposed to be assassinated by Tienshinhan but instead became good friends with him. Chaouzu is about a 2 foot doll look alike. His skin is pure white and he has rosy cheeks. Chaouzu is not a really significant character and never does anything worth mentioning. His greatest achievement is probably making it to King Kai's through Snake Way. =P

Name: Yajirobe
Race: Human
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black

Yajirobe is basically a weenie fighter that never does anything important .....basically ever. Hes really not the chicken that American DBZ makes him out to be, although he is a pig...and tries to eat Kuririn. OH....one event. He cut of Vegetas tail when he went Oozaru in the Saiyan/Vegeta saga. And he "claims" to be the leader of Earth's special forces. He is short and fat and weilds a sword, which he can surprisingly make good use of. Oh, and Yajirobe likes jelly donuts.

Name: Oolong
Race: Pig
Hair: None
Eyes: Black

You know, I was very tempted to list Oolongs race as "fata*s" Anyways, Oolong is a shapeshifting pig, and part coward part porno obsessive, like Muten Roshi. He is introduced in early Dragon Ball as a monster terrorizing a village, but then Gokou stops him, and learns hes just a cowardly pig. Not much else to say about Oolong, except he is very annoying.
