The Weekly ☆ Character Showcase is an article series where we introduce one character from the Dragon Ball universe each week. This week's character is certainly not the strongest, nor the luckiest man in the multiverse—it's the farmer with a Power Level of 5!
This unfortunate farmer was the first Earthling that Raditz encountered after touching down on Earth.
While working diligently in his field, the farmer spotted Raditz's small spacecraft hurtling towards Earth.
Thinking it must be a meteorite, or perhaps even a UFO, he goes to investigate. But when Raditz's towering figure appears before him, he panics and waves his gun frantically in an attempt to intimidate the mysterious invader.
As an unfazed Raditz presses forward, the farmer begins to fear for his life and fires his gun! However, Raditz effortlessly deflects the bullet right back at the farmer, who, in a stroke of bitter irony, loses his life to his own bullet.
"Dragon Ball" Tale 195
This humble farmer's Power Level is a mere 5!
The farmer is mocked by Raditz for his weakness as he scorns, "Power Level...only five. What a planet!" But considering that in the Android and Cell arcs, a young Trunks' Power Level was also 5, this farmer is actually pretty tough for a run-of-the-mill Earthling!
→Preview: Next week's character has a Power Level 106,000 times greater than this poor old farmer's!
