Goku is the main protagonist of Dragonball Z. Often he isn't around to fight the enemy, either being injured or on his way to the battlefield. He is killed twice in the anime and is revived both times.

  1. While holding Raditz in place, was killed by Piccolo with a Special Beam Cannon shooting through both him and Raditz. Was later wished back with the Dragonballs.
  2. Killed by Cell's selfdestruct. Was later revived when Old Kai gave his life to him.
