Why is Son Goku 3 (when he lands on earth)in Galactic Patrolman but only 2 (when he lands on earth) in the Dragon Ball anime and manga?

  • I had to guess a bit... I was thinking you meant age, but he's 11 at the beginning of Dragonball. Are you talking about the number of Dragon Balls found, 2 in the first volume of Jaco the Galactic Patrolman and 1 at the beginning of Dragon Ball? – FuzzyBoots Feb 19 '15 at 2:43
  • Yes like he was sent/found – Winterwolfsound Feb 19 '15 at 2:58
  • Only when he was he sent/found on earth – Winterwolfsound Feb 19 '15 at 3:00
  • I'm still not following what you're saying... are you asking about his age or the number of Dragon Balls? Would it be easier if we discussed this in Chat? – FuzzyBoots Feb 19 '15 at 3:31
  • @SeanDuggan i believe that he means the age of goku when he landed on earth, hes about 2 in dragon ball, and they must specifically say he lands when hes 3 in galactic patrolman. Goku was sent from the planet vegeta as a baby/small child. – Himarm Feb 19 '15 at 14:13

The simplest answer (and the only one I can render, not entirely understanding your question) is that the Jaco stories are being narrated by Omori in retrospect, so details may vary from what "actually" happened, assuming that they're not simply separate continuities or Akira made a mistake.
