1. Son Goku
Son Goku is the protagonist in this series. He is powerful, competitive, pure-hearted and dedicated to protecting his adopted home, Earth. Goku comes from an alien warrior race called the Saiyans, thus his incredible abilities. His original name from his home realm is Kakarrot.
She is a teenager in search of the Dragon Balls. She uses a device called the Dragon Radar to try and detect the energy signal emitted by the Dragon Balls. She meets Goku, who has a four-star ball and recruits him to be her bodyguard.
Bulma also has skills as an inventor and helps Goku and his friends with technical support to fight their enemies. Some of her inventions include the time machine and a shrinking microband.
He is one of Goku's best friends and classmates. He is bald and has mastered martial arts. Krillin and Goku are both students of Master Roshi; a foe turned friend. Krillin is killed in the series twice but gets revived both times. He is married to Android 18 and has an heir, a daughter named Marron.
He is the spawn of King Piccolo, who is Goku's evil enemy. Piccolo was created to avenge the death of King Piccolo. So he assumes the role of lousy half Kami, the god that created the Dragon Balls.
He fights with Goku and narrowly loses. Piccolo ends up teaming with Goku to help repel the invading Saiyans. He dies trying to protect Goku's son Gohan but is wished back by the Namekian Dragon Balls.
5. Son Gohan
He is Goku's first son. His mother is Chi-Chi, the daughter of the Ox-King. Son Gohan gets kidnapped by his uncle, Raditz, and is locked in a space pod. He soon escapes and is taken by Piccolo and trained for a year.
He is the last prince of the Saiyan people. Vegeta conquers a planet together with his partner Nappa. They travel to Earth in search of the Dragon Balls but get repelled by Goku and his friends.
Bardock is Goku's father and husband to Gine. He is a mercenary and a leader of a platoon of Saiyan warriors. However, there is not much about him. Bardock can produce the final spirit cannon, an energy sphere attack.
He appears as a mysterious young man that defeats King Cold and his son Frieza with ease. It is, however, discovered that he is Vegeta and Bulma's son from the future. He has travelled from the future to warn Goku of the impending arrival of the Red Ribbon Androids.
9. Son Goten
He is Goku's youngest son and resembles his father. Son Goten receives training from his older brother Son Gohan in preparation for a martial arts tournament.
These characters above play the leading roles and are expected to feature in season 2 of DBS. Fans expect the storyline to follow where season 1 left off, around the tournament of power arcs.
Also, we expect Moro to gain his powers again, thus becoming more potent. The story is expected to be more thrilling and adventurous as new villains enter the storyline.
