Burdock (バーダック Bādakku), Bardock in Funimation's English anime dub, is the father of Raditz and Kakarrot (Goku). Burdock's story is shown in the 1990 Dragon Ball Z TV special and in Toriyama's 2014 Dragon Ball Minus: The Departure of the Fated Child special. In the TV special, during a routine planet conquering mission on the planet Kanassa, one of the surviving inhabitants strikes Burdock, giving him its native ability to see into the future in the process. Soon, Burdock began to see visions of Freeza's plan to destroy Planet Vegeta and all of the Saiyans, as well as Goku's future on Earth. Burdock attempts to prevent the destruction of his race by challenging Freeza in orbit of planet Vegeta, but is unsuccessful, and becomes the first of the Saiyans to be obliterated by Freeza. Before his death, however, Burdock has one final vision of Goku challenging Freeza, and is able to die pleased knowing his son would avenge their race. In Dragon Ball Minus, which takes place a month before the destruction of Planet Vegeta, Burdock has a strong feeling that Freeza is up to something when they receive an order for all Saiyans to return home, so he convinces Gine (ギネ) to send their infant son, Kakarrot, to Earth.
