Disclaimer: The following is a remake of a roleplay originally done by KingAsura. I however, i'm attempting to reboot it, as he has gone awol and the thread died some time ago due to inactivity.
Dragonball Z. We all know the plot. An alien from a warrior race lands on earth, loses his memory, grows up and ends up becoming the planet's savior. But what if this alien didn't lose his memory? What if Goku didn't become a loveable idiot with a thirst for challenging combat? Further more, what if his race was never wiped out? What if Frieza decided to leave the Saiyans along for a little more time, and Bardock was able to warn his people of their impending doom successfully. What would happen if the Saiyans were able to purge Frieza's influence from their home planet and were able to kill the tyrant himself? This is where our plot will take. In a universe vastly different from the one found in the anime. An alternate reality.
In this reality, Goku never smashed his head on a rock. He never lost his memory, or his instincts. Grandpa Gohan never spotted the ship, and never came to rescue the young Saiyan. As such, he never adopted his earthling name. Kakarot instead spent his early childhood surviving in Earth's brutal wilderness, using his usually high powerlevel to kill any beasts brave enough to attack him. Living in the wilderness toughened him up quite a bit, taking the place of the training he would have had with Gohan. His brutal Saiyan mentality also did wonders for him, making him stronger than the original Goku could have ever been. His lust for power led him to training whenever he could, the lust for power that could bring Earth to its knees. With time, Kakarot eventually met Gohan. Despite how civil the old man was with him, he was only met with violence. The two ended up doing battle, with Gohan taking the upper hand against the inexperienced Kakarot. Only the appearance of the full moon helped turn the tides. In his Oozaru form, Kakarot easily killed Gohan and continued on a rampage that leveled a good portion of the battlefield.
Aside from this incident, Kakarot kept away from the human population. His battle with Gohan made him wary of the strength of native species of Earth. He continued to train in the mountains for most of his young life, into his teenaged years. The events of Dragonball still take place for the most part. Bulma still searches for the dragonballs, although she ultimately fails without Goku's help. Yamcha never meets up with the duo and spends his days still in the desert as a bandit. Krillin arrives at Master Roshi's island just fine, and becomes his one and only student. Demon King Piccolo is released by Pilaf still, and does conquer Earth after renewing his youth with the dragonballs. In his quest to kill those who could dare seal him again, he comes upon Kakarot. Intrigued by this being and glad to have a challenge, Kakarot and the Demon King do battle. In the end, due to his superior power, Kakarot is able to defeat Piccolo and his sons and slaughters them mercilessly. Seeing as Piccolo was able to conquer the world, and he was able to kill Piccolo, Kakarot takes this opportunity to strike and seize the planet in his grips. He is met with resistance by a few of Earth's fighters, but is able to wipe them out for the most part. With no one left to stop him, the Saiyan warrior ravages Earth. He is able to bring the planet to its knees. Instead of destroying the human race as a whole, he decided to enslave them and keep them around as toys. As a teenager, Kakarot reigns as a tyrant over Earth.
Not much happens for many years on end. Earth remains under constant fear. The few strong humans left who could challenge Kakarot stay hidden (Krillin being the closest to matching Kakarot in power) and train to overthrow the alien. Back on his home planet of Vegeta, the Saiyan race thrives. Many years before, Bardock was able to warn his people of Frieza's intent to destroy them. Showing surprising strength, the King of the planet is able to combat Frieza one on one. He is able to mortally wound Frieza, and the Changeling is finished off by Bardock himself before he has a chance to change to his second form and defeat the King. Zarbon and Dodoria are also killed in the attack. They are able to force Frieza's men off of their planet, keeping around only a handful of scientists so that they could continue to make gear for the Saiyans. Without Frieza to stop them, the Saiyans spread across the galaxy with King Vegeta standing in place of Frieza. The warrior race wipes out many other species, and claims many other planets for their own. They begin to overtake the universe, causing problems for the Kaio who rule the realms. Saiyans had reached as far as Namek before something is able to bring about an end to King Vegeta's rule. King Kold finally appears years after his son's death, and is able to kill King Vegeta and his closest followers. Without a leader, the Saiyan empire begins to fall apart. They scatter all over the galaxy. Many are killed by King Kold and his forces when they attempt to resist, others enslaved and thrown into his armies, or put to work gathering resources for his empire. King Kold takes the chaos created by the lose of a central power in the galaxy, and begins to pick off weakened planets for his own while the Saiyan defenders flee for their lives, or are crushed under his boot.
Back on Earth, Kakarot decided to have a grand tournament in his honor. To find a challenger worthy of fighting him. This is when the fighters of earth decide to strike. Having prepared to free their homes from the grip of a single dictator, they enter the tournament in the hopes of fighting and killing Kakarot himself. This is where we begin.
