How Goku Escaped Planet Namek

This one is the most confusing of all the heroics of Goku and in fact, after the Namek explosion king kai himself told Goku is dead.

So for us fans, there was no hope of Goku surviving the planet’s namek explosion.

On the other hand

Bulma and other Namekians were on the earth waiting for the Namekian dragon ball to be activated. They wanted to wish Goku and others who died.

But king Kai alarmed everyone about the fatal consequences of wishing Goku and Krillin back to life.

He said – “Goku and Krillin died on planet Namek which is oblivion as we speak, so if they will be wished back directly their body will be back on planet Namek (which does not exist now). That means they will be back on outer space, resulting in a quick death again”

So Bulma had to make two wishes i.e firstly Goku and Krillin should be wished back to earth’s hell room (someplace in the afterworld) then they should wish them back to earth.

After 6 months, Nameekian dragon balls were ready to summon Porunga.

Bulma asked Dende to tell Porunga about her wishes.

Then we fans came to know that- the one called Goku is still alive.
