It had only been a few days since Trunks Brief arrived from the future timeline. His mission was to warn Son Goku and the Z-Fighters of a great threat coming their way, and that of a heart virus that would end Goku’s life. Trunks is also the son of Bulma Brief, the daughter of the Capsule Corporation founder. And Vegeta, the former Prince of the Saiyans. This renders the boy a Saiyan-Human hybrid, like his future teacher Gohan. After he left to return to the future though, trouble arose in a nearby town. It was none other than Dr. Gero himself, with Android 19 by his side, attacking innocent people, on the search for Earth’s hero. Everyone screamed and ran for their lives as ki shots were shot at them. That was when the Z-Fighters arrived on the scene on a nearby mountain.
On the other side of town, two young girls around their early adulthood were just arriving into town, one with a sword ready, the other standing by her sister’s side. They too, also heard the towns’ distress call, and earlier saw a flying car being shot down in the distance, landing into a nearby lake. “Well, whenever there’s trouble around, the Z-Fighters are bound to show up.” One of the girls wearing a black blouse predicted as she took out her sword. “Well, they are cool I admit, but I don’t think it’s a good idea to get in their way.” The sister who wore a white blouse warned when she decided to look around. As they continued to walk down the streets of the city, they saw that a propane truck was driving out of control, as the driver was killed by the androids. “Kanon! Jump!” the white bloused girl cried out when grabbed her sister by the waist and ran towards the truck, leaped onto it, and jumped off. As they did that, they did a front flip, and landed onto their feet as the truck behind them drove into a gas station, and exploded.
“Holy crap Anon!” Kanon shouted as she looked back at the flames. “Don’t you see how much of a threat these people pose?” Anon questioned. “That guy must’ve been wasted. Besides, how do you know how much of a threat these bastards pose if we haven’t even seen them yet?” Kanon scoffed as she waved her hand back and forth. Anon rolled her eyes in annoyance, “If that man was drunk off his butt, then why was there blood coming out of the side of his head?” Kanon looked up at her twin sister and shrugged, “Maybe he hit his head?”
Just then, a pair of odd looking people flew down from the sky and onto the street below, just a few feet away from the twins. One had long white hair with a hat, the other had porcelain white skin. Thankfully they landed in the opposite direction away from the girls. “Quick, make yourself scarce!” Anon whispered as she grabbed Kanon by her arm and quickly bolted to a nearby alley. “Let me at ‘em!” Kanon pulled herself away from Anon. “Stop being so reckless! We either need to come up with a plan, or wait for the Z-Fighters to find them.” “Well, what good would those suggestions do? Honestly those guys look like those wimps we can steal lunch money from.” Kanon smiled deviously when she crossed her arms, when Anon shook her head in disappointment.
Unbeknownst to Kanon though, the androids Gero and 19 overheard the sisters’ conversation and quietly walked over there. “So what if you think they look dangerous and suspicious, we can beat ‘em ourselves. Two on Two, it’s a fair fight.”
Anon peeked behind Kanon to find the two androids they were trying to hide from, and gasped in surprise. “That depends on if the opponent has enough fighting experience or has the advantage over them.” Kanon then lifted a finger to correct him when her eyes widened, as a wave of realization hit her like a knife in the back. “Speak again…” She commanded, her tone of voice lowering in anger. Gero only laughed in amusement. She turned around to find the androids in front of her and took out her sword. But before she can fight them, Gero shot a ki blast near their feet, then blew them out of the alley and into the next street behind them. As they sat up, Kanon looked over to her sister, then back at the androids, who were just flying out of the alley. She got herself up and pointed her sword at the androids. “Anon, get back!”
“Now, I think you said something about us being wimps and taking our lunch money. Wouldn’t that make you one of those stereotypical middle school bullies?” Gero interrogated as he landed on the ground. “Ixnay on the Upidstay…” Kanon muttered under her breath, when they heard 19 land on the ground and approach them. “Upidstay means Stupid in Pig Latin, are you implying that we are stupid?” Kanon shot up and smirked, “Huh? Oh no, we thought you guys were the smartest people in the world. What the hell do you think we mean?!”
“Whether or not that was sarcasm you were implying just now, I was a scientist for the Red Ribbon Army, I have been creating Androids for them for years. That’s how I got the job in the first place!” The doctor replied in an angry tone in his voice. “We’re done talking! We’re looking for Son Goku and you two are merely in the way. 19, you have my permission to kill them on the spot!” he commanded when the android rose his arm, aiming at the girls. Anon held onto her sister’s arm tightly, bracing for impact.
“Hey!” a lone, young male voice was heard, grabbing the four’s attention. It was Yamcha, one of the members of the Z-Fighters. Anon’s eyes widened. Kanon, get me an ambulance. Cupid shot an arrow to my heart…Yamcha flew down to the ground and shouted, “Leave those two girls alone!” The androids turned to look at him. “19, scan him!” Gero ordered when 19’s eyes turned slightly red, scanning the fighter. “He is 96% Son Goku.” 19 reported. The girls glanced at each other, then back at the three. “That’s Son Goku? I thought he’d have spikier hair and no battle scars.” Kanon whispered. “Don’t know ‘bout you, but think he’s kinda cute.” Anon added. Kanon looked at her with disbelief, “Oh my god, here we go…”
“What? I’m not Son Goku. I’m…” Before Yamcha can explain himself, Gero snatched him by his mouth. The twins gasped in fear, and ran towards them. Unfortunately for them, 19 blocked their path. Gero then impaled the man with his own hand, through his chest. Anon covered her mouth, preventing herself from gagging. “I have a feeling I’m going to have a lot of nightmares tonight.” Anon told herself when she covered her face with both of her hands. Kanon couldn’t believe what she was seeing. An android, whom she called a wimp, just stuck a hand through a man’s chest. Anon was right, she had to be careful around these robotic monsters.
Just then, Goku and the other Z-Fighters arrived onto the scene. Goku’s eyes widened at the horrid sight before him. “Ya…Yamcha?!” he shouted when Gero threw the impaled Z-Fighter towards the group. Oh, so 19 got the wrong person. Ha! This just proved my point that Gero isn’t the smartest person in the world. Kanon laughed mentally, smiling sheepishly at her victory. “Ah, so you’re Son Goku. My apologies for our unfortunate miscalculation. As you see before you that is only the hint of our power.” The doctor laughed when Goku motioned for one of his friends, Krillin, to get Yamcha and bring him back to Bulma, away from danger. “You, why would you do this to innocent people?!” “Don’t you remember the Red Ribbon Army? You should remember what you did to us years ago?”
Goku stopped himself, and nodded. It was years ago when he and his friends (including the assistance of Android 8) battled the Red Ribbon Army, who were after the mystical Dragon Balls to wish for world domination. He was only a little boy back then, but also a magnificent fighter as he was now. “Now we have come back to kill you, for revenge. With our powers and techniques, none of you stand a chance against us.”
That was when the hero grinned, “Is that so? We’ll see what you got.” Goku challenged, cracking his knuckles. Gero chuckled at the Saiyan’s determination, “Well, as you wish.” He rose his right arm, aiming at a building, and shot at it, causing it to explode. This made the warriors and the twins cringe in fear. “Um…can we take this somewhere else where there are no people around?” Goku requested when he laughed nervously. Anon and Kanon glanced at each other in utter confusion. Why is he laughing at important matters? Doesn’t he realize that the old guy shot at a building, which possibly has people inside it? “Fine, I know a clear place to fight. Come with me!” Gero ordered as he and 19 lifted into the air as the Z-Fighters followed them. Damn these people and their non-visible wings… “Where do you think they’re going?” Anon questioned as she cupped her hand over her eyes, blocking out the sun. Kanon turned with a smirk on her face, “Wanna find out?” Anon gasped in surprise. Just as she was about to grab her twin and lecture her, Kanon ran to the direction the Androids and the Z-Fighters flew off to. “Hmm…Kanon…” Anon groaned in a bit of anger when she ran after her.
A few miles later, the group landed in an area surrounded by a bunch of plateaus. “I guess I might have to warn you, Son Goku. We have watched all of your battles through our spy bots. From the recent World Martial Arts Tournament, to your scuffles with Vegeta.” A chuckle came out of Goku. “What is so funny?” 19 asked as he looked up at the Saiyan warrior in confusion. “It’s cool that you saw my moves and techniques. But let me ask you one thing. Have you seen my battles on Planet Namek?” That was when Gero scoffed, “We have everything we needed from you, sending my spy bots to Namek is only a waste of time.”
That was when the other Z-Fighters smirked in determination. “Well, then I guess you two are in for a mighty big surprise.” Goku added.
Meanwhile, the twins caught up to the Z-Fighters, and hid behind a nearby boulder to watch the battle from afar. Suddenly, they heard Goku screaming at the top of his lung. They covered their eyes as a flash of light covered the field for the moment. When they looked back up, they saw that Goku had gained blonde hair, and a bright yellow raging aura around him. “Kanon, look! His hair turned blonde.” Anon whispered as she pointed at the hero standing before the Androids. Kanon nodded, “Yeah, I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Anon and Kanon had heard of Saiyans before, as one killed their parents back when Raditz, then Vegeta and Nappa invaded Planet Earth, orphaning them. But they never have heard, let alone seen, a Super Saiyan before, in which they were fascinated by. All they had to do is watch and stay out of sight of both the Z-Fighters and the Androids.
“So you powered up a bit. Still, I can beat you. And I know that 19 can take you with his eyes closed.” Gero challenged as 19 stepped forward to fight the Saiyan. “Hmph…who does he think he is? Goku has beaten Vegeta before, and he just as cocky as them. Why do they think they’re so different?” Tien, a three eyed human, questioned angrily as he crossed his arms. “Well, they are androids after all. Who knows what they have in store.” Piccolo, a Namekian, added. “C’mon Goku, you can beat that tin can.” Kanon cheered on the Saiyan quietly. 19 charged at Goku, and thus began the fight between them. Gero flew out of the way, and let 19 have his fight.
Punches and kicks were thrown at each other, and instead of getting progressively stronger as a regular Saiyan should have, Goku was getting progressively weaker. His last option left was his Kamehameha wave. 19 gave a smirk while Goku recited the words of the ki attack, meaning that the android wasn’t at all afraid of what was going to happen next. As the Saiyan fired his attack at the android below, the latter rose his hand to the sky and absorbed the wave with it. “What the…” Goku muttered in surprise. “See, I told you that you couldn’t beat us.” Gero taunted.
“Goku!” a lone voice was heard in the distance behind the Z-Fighters. It was Yamcha, with Krillin flying beside him, carrying a small bag with Senzu beans inside. “You have to be careful around those Androids! While one of them was holding me, I felt some of my energy draining!” He warned as he and Krillin flew down to the others. Anon looked over to Yamcha and rose her eyebrows in wonder, “How did he heal so fast?” “Never mind about that! When the hell are we gonna come into the fight?!” Kanon interrupted. Anon rolled her eyes and continued to watch the battle, when she saw that Goku was panting heavily, more heavy than he should be. “Kanon, something’s wrong with Goku. Look at him, he’s holding onto his chest. Doesn’t that say something?” “What are you saying, sis? He hasn’t took in that much damage. How could he be in trouble?” Just then, Goku fell onto his knees, clutching onto his chest. “Goku!” Krillin shouted in fear. “It’s his heart! Get help!” Gohan, Goku’s son, told. “No! The heart virus! Did he drink the medicine Trunks gave him?” Piccolo turned to Tien and Yamcha. They both shrugged. He grunted in anger. “That idiot!”
19 charged at Goku at full speed and gave him a punch to the stomach, sending him flying across the field. At that moment, as he lied onto the ground, his bright golden hair returned to an ebony black. “He just knocked the Super Saiyan right out of him!” Krillin commented, staring wide-eyed at the fight. Kanon took a deep breath, feeling the adrenaline and anger within her run wild, and then ran out of her hiding place. Anon looked up to find her sister missing, and looked behind the boulder to find her running off. “Kanon! Where are you going?! KANON!!!”
Kanon ran into the battle field, just as 19 was about to take a leap and pounce on the weakened Goku. She leaped over the Saiyan and kicked the Android directly in the face, keeping him back. The Z-Fighters were baffled at the scene below. Gero was livid as he took sight of the twins. Them again?! What do they want?! Anon ran down a hill and saw Goku. “Oh my god…oh…um…I’ll get you away from here.” She said as she wrapped her arms under Goku’s arms and dragged him away from the scuffle. “Help! Help!” she shouted. “Wait a minute, those are the girls I was going to save earlier.” Yamcha remembered. “Look, one of them has a sword.” Krillin sighted the sword on Kanon’s back. “Do they have enough strength to push the Androids back?”
Kanon drew out her sword and pointed it at 19. “I hope you like the taste of steel against metal!” Kanon shouted as she ran at the android, who rose his fists to fight. Just as she could hit him, she felt as if something hard had hit her in the side, knocking her out of the way. “Kanon!” Anon shouted, showing concern for her sister. Kanon crashed frontwards onto the ground, and then spit out the dirt from her mouth when she looked up whoever kicked her. It was none other than Prince Vegeta, in which Kanon felt so much hatred for. “Stay out of the way, human. I will take victory over the defeat of Kakarot, and none of you will get in my way.” Kanon picked herself off of the ground, and ran at the Saiyan prince in a fit of anger, but was stopped by Anon, who wrapped her arms around her waist and pulling her away. “Stop trying to stop me! That Saiyan killed our parents! He killed innocent people and he’s gonna kill some guy name Kakarot!” “Kanon, please! You’re making a scene! We have to get out of here.” Anon told her as she dragged her twin away from the battle field.
Vegeta turned to 19. “Now, I will make things perfectly clear, mechanical scum. I’ve seen you fight from afar, and I must say. You aren’t the greatest fighters I heard you were.” Vegeta taunted the Android in question when he rose his fists. “You are forgetting something. We also watched you in battle with Son Goku. Therefore, we have committed your moves to memory.” Vegeta frowned at 19’s statement. “Oh really? Then why were you so surprised when Kakarot turned into a Super Saiyan? Hmm?” 19’s eyes widened. “I’ve been wondering. Can a bucket of bolts like you feel fear?”
Just then, the Saiyan prince let out a loud cry, a war cry, as the same aura that surrounded Goku appeared around him. Then, his dark hair turned to a bright blonde. The twins, the Z-Fighters, and the Androids watched him transform, flabbergasted.
“Wha?! How is this even possible?! I thought that to become a Super Saiyan, you need to be pure of heart!” Krillin remembered. “Pure of heart? No…Pure of rage is more like it.” Vegeta disagreed with the short Z-Fighter. “I put myself through the most gruelling training. I learned of my limits, and my self-hatred of realization of never being able to surpass Kakarot triggered my power. So, anymore questions?” There was a short pause between him and the people.
It was 19 that lunged at him first, attacking the Saiyan full on. Gero was beginning to worry, as the Saiyan was putting more effort into his fighting than Goku did, and 19 was giving him everything he’s got. Yamcha flew over to the fallen hero and stood by his side. “I’ll bring you to Chichi. She won’t be too glad to see you in this state.” He told. Yamcha then looked up at the twins. “Thank you so much for saving him. Who knows what could’ve happened if the Android got him here and then?” “Someone had to save him. We couldn’t just stand around and leave a sick man defenceless.” Kanon replied as she stood up onto her feet. Yamcha gave them a nod before grabbing the Saiyan and placing him over his shoulder. He flew off, carrying Goku away from the battle field.
Vegeta gave the Android a kick in the stomach, knocking him to the ground, knocking his hat off and revealing his artificial brain. “Ugh…to be honest, it’s kinda disturbing to look at.” Kanon admitted as she stared at the android with wide, emerald eyes. “At least it’s not a human brain we’re looking at.” Anon reassured. 19 got back up, but then the Saiyan prince gave him another kick, launching him into the air. 19 recovered from the assault, and Vegeta appeared in front of him and punched him in the face. The android shook his head and grunted in anger as blood dripped from his nose and mouth. “Well would you look at that? It seems that you have an oil leak.” Vegeta taunted when 19 shot a beam from his eyes. The former dodged the attack by teleporting above the android and knocked him to the ground. “Look out!” Krillin shouted when the Z-Fighters and the twins ran away from the area before 19 hit the ground, creating a hole. The wind blew through Gero, watching in alert. Vegeta landed inside the hole in front of the android. Just then, 19 got up and grabbed Vegeta’s wrists, trapping him.
He began to laugh maniacally. “I have you now, Vegeta. I will never let you go until every last drop of your energy completely drained.” He chuckled. “Is that so? I’ll play along then.” Vegeta said when he lifted his legs and pushed his feet against 19’s face. 19 thought that he finally got Vegeta in his clutches, and now has a Super Saiyan pushing against his face, but still, he won’t budge. “Well, so you do absorb energy through your hands. Fine, keep focusing on your grip! DON’T LET GO!!!” Vegeta pushed against the android’s face to the point of pulling his hands off completely. “Whoa…” Gohan stared at Vegeta in awe. First the brain, and now his hands. What’s next, you’re gonna behead him or something?
Blood rushed out of 19’s cords. “No…” Gero said silently. Without his hands to absorb energy with, he was vulnerable. He was panicking, he didn’t know what to do. Vegeta looked up at 19 and smirked. “Ah, so you do feel fear. I hate to be blunt with you, but you did this to yourself. You would have never lost your hands if you haven’t held onto me so tightly.” He interrogated as the android in front of him stared at him stared at him with wide eyes. “Hmm…I’m in a rather good mood today. So I’ll give you a 5 second head start for you to escape.”
Wasting no time, 19 turned around to climb out of the hole they were in and made a run for it. “19, where are you going?! He’s just a Saiyan! Stop!” Gero shouted when he turned to the Saiyan prince floating out of the ground. “Wait your turn old man. Once I go through to him, you’re next!” Vegeta demanded as Gero kept quiet. He then laughed, as 19 didn’t get very far as to run away. “Now feel the wrath…of my Big Bang Attack!!!” Vegeta shot the blast at the unsuspected android, creating a massive explosion that blinded the Z-Fighters, and the twins. All that was left of Android 19 was his head, his facial expression in a dead like state.
The Z-Fighters turned to where Gero stood, only to find him missing. “Ugh…that coward!” Vegeta shouted in anger. “We’ll worry about him later. Right now, we need to know who they are.” Piccolo told as he turned to Anon and Kanon. “Yeah, one of them saved my dad from the android.” Gohan reminded as he and the others looked over to the twins. “Anon, why are they staring at us like they wanna kill us?” Kanon whispered to her sister. “They probably don’t want us here and we got in their way.”
Piccolo, Tien, Krillin, and Gohan walked over to them. “Oh…um…hello…” Anon waved nervously, thinking that she and Kanon may be in serious trouble for getting in their way when they weren’t supposed to. “You two, explain yourselves…Who are you, and why are you here?” Piccolo interrogated as he crossed his arms, intimidating the girls. “I’m…no…we’re sorry we got in the way. I’m Anon, this is my twin sister Kanon. I was trying to stop her from hurting herself. But hey, look at the time. It’s best that we head on home, right Kanon?” Anon told as she dragged her sister behind her, attempting to leave. Gohan ran after them, “Wait a minute, don’t go yet! I want to thank you for saving my dad like you did!” This made them stop in their tracks. Kanon pulled away from Anon, “Um…no problem…” Kanon smiled at the boy as she scratched the back of her head.
Vegeta scoffed at the sight below him. He did destroy 19 after all, so why must they praise the girls? Why must that little twerp get all the credit? All she did was kick the bucket of bolts in the face! Kanon felt the same way towards Vegeta, he stole what could’ve been her victory by kicking her out of the way. “Hey, what’s that sword you’re carrying?” Tien questioned as he pointed at the sword on Kanon’s back. She took out her sword and presented it to the Z-Fighters. “Hey, not bad. Our friend Trunks has a sword almost like yours.” Krillin told them as he saw his reflection on the blade. “It looks so cool!” Gohan complimented as he felt the blade, and then stepped back. “Our Dad gave it to me for our 14th birthday, just before he and Mom were killed. I use it when the fight gets really tough, but both of us were trained under our old master to use Martial Arts as our primary use of fighting. By the way, he told us about you and let’s just say, that both of us are your biggest fans.” Kanon told her and Anon’s story as when she place the sword back into its sheaf.
“So you two say you’re experienced fighters, huh? We need all the assistance we can get, thanks to Goku and his heart virus.” The Namekian told. “You really want our help?” Kanon looked up at him when she felt her sister pull her away from him. “Kanon, you do realize by joining the Z-Fighters, we’re going to see more people dying, and at a more gruesome state than what that Android went through, right?” Anon warned when Kanon pulled her arm away from her. “Dude, no need to be so clingy. They’re the Guardians of the Earth for crying out loud. What could go wrong?” the latter said as she walked up to Piccolo. “We’ll join ya! It’s about time we got some excitement in our lives, and we won’t hesitate to take on some challenges.” “Good! I think the other Android escaped to where the mountains are.” Tien said as the group began to walk. Kanon turned around to sight her sister and put a two thumbs up. If we ever get out of this alive, I will kick your ass until the morrow. Anon doubted as she began to follow her sister and the Z-Fighters.
