Spoilers for the upcoming Dragon Ball Super manga chapter 68, have revealed the origins of Granola, the new villain that was introduced at the end of the previous manga chapter. Furthermore, the manga spoilers have hinted that Goku’s biological family will play a key role in the upcoming arc.
Granola derives from one of the many alien races that the Saiyan’s conquered during their time under the rule of Frieza. Granola is now in search for power and Seven-Three is a pretty rich source of that, in order for the new villain to be on an even level as the Saiyan’s.
Yes, this story is sounding very similar to that of Baby in Dragon Ball GT and of course, the Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast 2 short film. However, unlike those productions, Granola isn’t a Tuffle and is in fact, another race entirely that the Saiyan’s attacked. However, Granola’s people weren’t just attacked by any Saiyan’s, they were attacked by Bardock. Yes, the father of Goku is the man who slaughtered his people, which means that he has a big grudge against Goku, as well as Goku’s family.
Then, you also have to remember that Vegeta is the son of King Vegeta, who probably made the order to attack Granola’s planet and the fact that both Vegeta and Goku are semi-allies with Frieza now, who was also involved. As you can see, there is a lot of motivation here for Granola to want to harm the Saiyan’s.
So, will we get to see Raditz or Bardock in the upcoming arc? Yes, we likely will but hopefully not just as a flash-back. It’s possible that Goku might want to be reunited with his family, which includes Gine, Goku’s mother. Curiosity could bring them back or maybe Granola does in order to enact specific revenge on Bardock. Imagine resurrecting Bardock and his family, only to kills off Gine, Raditz, Goku, Goten, Chi-Chi, Pan, Videl and Gohan before killing him too afterwards.
It sounds like some pretty dark revenge but depening on how much Granola despises Bardock, it’s possible that he could be resurrected. I also wonder what Bardock would think about his son being semi-allied with Frieza. That reunion is also one to look out for.
