And Kakarotto turns out to be Son Gokû! With two other Saiyajin coming to earth, can Gokû and the Z Warriors withstand the onslaught!? Written by Evan Jacobson <mrsatan@geocities.com>

Trivia

The character of Dr. Gero is said to have been the Red Ribbon Army's chief creator of cyborgs and technology, that character never appeared or was mentioned a single time in the original Dragon Ball. In Dragon Ball anime it is stated that an entirely separate scientist, Dr. Frappe, created this technology, but this scientist does not appear in the original manga, it's a filler character.
