Hellow all!!  Welcome to my site about Dragon Ball Z!! If you are new to DBZ, here is the most input of information I can get up, I certainatly hope that it's enough for you. Ok here we go!!!!!
Gohan is Goku and Chi-Chi's son and was named after his adoptive grandfather. Physically, he rsembles a young Goku, right down to his tail and his proprnsity to become a raging giant monkey when he looks at a full moon. Spiritually, he is good and pure of heart. Because of his protective mother, Gohan begins life as something of a wimp, but when the Earth is threatned, he reveals his tremendous potential as a fighter. In one instance, he uncontrolably "powers up" in order to rescue his father from a despreate situation. Soon Gohan is forced into training with Piccalo to get stronger to fight the evil sayin and frieza. He first masters survival training. He is abonddoned for 6 months in the wilderness, where he battles hunger, scorpions, saber tigers and dinosaurs, among other things. Next comes intense fighting with Piccalo to train Gohan in the art of war. His mission: "to kill the sayins and save earth." Gohan learns many lessons under Piccalo, such as "don't see the enemy, feel him." Their special bond results in Piccalo stepping in front of Nappa's mighty blast to save Gohan's life.
Initally caught between "wimp" and "warrier," Gohans loss of nerve in the battle against the Sayins cost his friends dearly. Haunted by his failure, he is determined to make up for his cowardice. This determination leads Gohan to Planet Namic, where he searches for the source of the original Dragonball so that he can wish his friends back to life. In the end, Gohan comes through in the final battle as he looks at the moon, turns into a giant monkey and lunges toward Vegeeta, causing him to flea.
Goku is the hero of Dgonball Z, a good-natured and trusting soul. He is also the most powerful warrier on earth and the first super sayin in over 1,000 years. Having honed his skills and strengthened his spirit to a level never achieved by any being on earth, Goku is able to fly, shoot energy beams from his hands,  ove at increadibale speeds and, in a pinch, power up to a fighting level so high it creates an aura around his body. Goku hasn't learned these skills just for fun: his life is forced down this path as he battles the evil sayins in the final battle to save earth.
When the sayin arrive it is a total shock in moreways than 1. Not only does Goku meet his deadliest foe ever, but he learns the mysterious secret of his own past: he is a sayin formerly known as Kakarot who was sent to destroy earth. Goku's destiny is altered, however, when he is dicovered in the wilds as an infante and raised by a peaceful wise man. A near fatal head injury scambles Goku's programming. Instead of growing up to be a disructive super-warrier, he becomes innocent and pure of heart, fighting only for good.

Goku is very protective of his friends and family and is always there to help them. If he has a weakness, it is his trusting nature. Goku is always looking for the good in people and can often find it where others do not. This cost him dearly when he beileves that the sayin named Raditz has turned away from evil. Goku later pays the ultimate sacrafice earth of Raditz.
Fortunatly for our hero and for earth, it's not the end of Goku. He is taken to the upper world to train under King Kai in preperation for the coming of 2 even stronger sayins. The Dragonballs will summon him when the sayins approach earth.
Goku has many powerful fighting techniques including the powerful Kamehameha wave and the Kaio-Ken which he learns from King Kai. His most powerful weapon is an emmensely powerful energy ball. This ball can only be used once and must be guided carefully, for it can destroy the planet if used inappropriately.
Goku's power level changes rapidly, rising from a 300 level in the early episodes to 5,000 after training with King Kai, to 8,000 when he is angry and to 21,000 when doing the famous Triple Kaio-Ken. And all of this is after his super sayin stage. To furthur aid him, Goku still has the famous Nimbous Cloud and Power Pole.
Once Goku's arch enemy, Piccalo is the second strongest being on earth. He weares an extreamely heavy cape that constantly trains his muscles. He is renowned for his powerful energy blasts as well as his ability to split in half into seperate entitles. Green like a lizard, Piccalo has the ability to regenerate limbs lost in battle, a camability that comes in handy more than once.
Originally from the faraway planet, Piccalo battling Goku to rule the world. When the sayins arrive, however, Piccalo joins forces with Goku to defeat a greater evil.
At first their alliance is uneasy, but as the story progresses their bond grows stronger. Piccalo trains Goku's son, Gohan, for the upcoming battle against the sayins. Piccalo is unsure of his own motivations in assisting his onetime enemy and helping to rais his son. Gohan sees the good within Piccalo and their relationship brings this good out in him. In the showdown with Vegeeta and Nappa, Piccalo saves Gohans life by jumping in front of an energy blast
