Anyone who has ever wanted to see just what would happen if Raditz became a major DBZ character is in for a treat with ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8400080/1/Break-Through-the-Limit Break Through The Limit]]'', a ''Manga/DragonBall'' fanfiction written by Captain Space.

Shortly after a much more drastic defeat in the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai, Piccolo Jr. resolved to defeat Son Goku and trained far harder than he had done in DBZ canon. The results are felt 5 years later when Raditz comes to Earth only to find himself outmatched by Piccolo. The series of events that follow eventually lead to a HeelFaceTurn by Raditz and a new take on the DBZ universe.

Added DiffLines:

** A more comedic example would be any time Hercule tries to fight a Saiyan.


Added DiffLines:

* FixFic: When it comes to Hercule, definitely. He never gets to fight Cell (Raditz didn't allow any normal human to get close to the fighting ground), makes a fool of himself in live TV by trying to beat Raditz to no avail. Said TV crew also record the Z-Fighters defeating Cell, and unlike canon, nobody believes his claims that the Z-Fighters and Cell's ki attacks are just smoke and mirrors. It culminates with him challening Goku to a one on one fight, again, on live TV, which he obviosuly loses. This defeat is enough to break his huge ego, and sent him into an HeroicBSOD. However, Videl managed to snap him out of it, and he even begin to train how to use ki attacks.
