Cereal (シリアル星 Shiriaru-sei) is the native planet of the Cerealians.
Cereal was conquered by the Frieza Force and the Saiyan Army, who utilized the full moon to transform into Great Apes and annihilate nearly all of the population and their cities. Following this, the Heeters, who secretly made a deal with the Frieza Force as business partners to ravage Cereal, arrived to the planet and began to rebuild it. The Sugarians, having no planet of their own, paid the Heeters so that they could populate there unaware that they were scammed by them.
Genocide of Planet Cereal
During the invasion of Cereal, Saiyan Army sent in Team Bardock which consisted of Bardock, Leek, and Taro. However a male Cerealian named Flayk destroyed Cereal's moon which caused the three Saiyans to revert to their base forms. However the three were still more than enough to take on the remaining survivors.
Fortunately a Cerealian mother Muezli and her son Granolah were located by Bardock who was reminded of his wife Gine and newborn son Kakarot. This caused Bardock to decide to spare them which was normally out of character for the low class Saiyan warrior. Sensing Monaito, a Namekian Dragon Clansman living on Cereal who survived the genocide, he decided to leave the mother and son in his care. Unfortunately Muezli was inadvertently killed by the Heeter Elec, forcing Bardock to fight and defeat his brother Gas.
Granolah & Dragon Balls of Cereal
Monaito was unable to heal Muezli's wounds, but took in the now orphaned Granolah. In order to survive, Monaito chose not to tell Granolah of the Heeters involvement in his mother's death, allowing Granolah to act as a bounty hunter for the Heeters. Unfortunately Monaito never told Granolah about how Bardock saved him, which resulted in the Cerealian desiring revenge on both Frieza and the Saiyans. This would later lead Granolah to use the two Cereal Dragon Balls to summon the Eternal Dragon of Cereal Toronbo which had been created by Monaito to wish to be the strongest in the universe.
Cerealian Survivor vs Saiyan Survivors
This would lead the Heeters to conspire to hire the Saiyan survivors Goku and Vegeta in order to have them fight Granolah. After learning of the Cereal Dragon Balls power, Elec decides to use them to make Gas the strongest as part of their long term goal of usurping control of the Frieza Force from Frieza as their partnership with him was effectively one-sided due to Frieza's formidable strength.
Meanwhile, Monaito manages to intervene and reveals to Granolah the truth regarding his mother's death and Bardock's role in their surviving the genocide. Monaito suspects Goku to be Bardock's son which Vegeta confirms upon hearing Bardock's name. With Granolah now aware of the Heeters role in his mother's death, he joins forces with Vegeta and Goku to take on Gas who had been turned into the strongest fighter in Universe 7 by Elec's wish.
