Bardock is a low-class Saiyan warrior and the father of Kakarot and Raditz. He is an adept fighter and a devoted Saiyan Army soldier under Frieza's Planet Trade Organization, until he realizes that Frieza plans the annihilation of the Saiyan race. Given to him by the last Kanassan warrior was the ability to see into the future, and it is through these visions that he sees the eventual Genocide of the Saiyans. He typically plays the same role in DBS as he did in the original Dragon Ball series despite his story being further expanded upon in greater detail. He is also a playable character in Dragon Ball Awakening Saiyans. It is revealed that Saiyan hierarchy intended for him to marry Sharotto, explaining the matching scars the two share on their left cheek. Bardock eventually married Gine and Sharotto married Arashi's Father.
