We do not see exactly what Piccolo does to him, but we can assume it isn't a pretty sight, because when Krillin and Bulma take his scouter, Raditz's corpse remains unseen. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi implies that Piccolo killed him by hitting him with his fist or hand. Ep.5
3. Goku: Killed by Piccolo, though he sacrificed himself. He held Raditz in place so he couldn't escape, and Piccolo shot a Special Beam Cannon through both of them. Goku was later revived with the Dragon Balls. Ep.5

24. Unnamed Frieza Soldier: Killed by Frieza. He returned to Frieza after discovering the hidden village Vegeta attacked, but as he hadn't found out where Vegeta had hidden the Dragon Ball, Frieza killed him with an eye laser, threatening to do the same to Zarbon if he didn't find Vegeta and make him talk.
25. Appule: Killed by Vegeta. Appule was overseeing Vegeta when he was healing in the rejuvenation tank after his injuries from his fight with the transformed Zarbon. Vegeta recovered and broke out of the rejuvenation tank, presumably with an energy blast, and killed Appule as he did so.
26. Zarbon: Killed by Vegeta. Even in his transformed state, Zarbon was no no longer a match for the Saiyan prince the second time around, since Vegeta's power had grown.

44. Vinegar: Killed by Gohan.

He begged Trunks for his life, but Trunks, knowing how Frieza's family works, destroyed him with an energy blast.

50. Android 19: Killed by Vegeta. 19 attempted to drain Vegeta's energy using the devices on his hands, but Vegeta pulled his hands off and, as 19 attempted to run, blew him up with a Big Bang attack. Only his head remained.
51. Dr. Gero: Killed by Android 17. As the mad scientist (also known as Android 20) tried to stop 17 and 18 from activating Android 16, 17 kicked his head off. The head was still alive, so 17 stomped on it, crushing it.
Note: Furthermore, no other notable people were killed during this Saga, though definitely many people are killed by Androids #19 and #20 in South City, and at least 5 people are unintentionally killed by Vegeta during his fight with Android #18.

(Note: The wish was made to revive everyone on Earth who was killed by Cell, and 17 died on King Kai's planet. This can be argued that his being absorbed on Earth affected whether he was considered to have died on Earth, as his absorption led to his death. Also, it is unknown as to why he never appeared on Snake Way with Goku, King Kai, Bubbles, and Gregory) .
60. Future Trunks: Killed by Cell with a beam through the chest. Was later revived with the Dragon balls.

Majin Buu Saga
70. Dabura: Killed by Majin Buu. The pink blob turned the king of demons into a gigantic cookie and ate him, thus turning all his victims (that he turned to stone) back to normal.

75. Smitty: Killed by Super Boo. The first major thing Super Boo did after he transformed from Evil Boo was to turn into liquid and go down Smitty's throat, making him get bigger and fatter (more gruesomely than Spopovich or Yakon) until he exploded. (the edited version cuts out most of the details: it shows Boo heading for Smitty's mouth, then Hercule's reaction, then the Boo explosion after it has occurred). This is the most horrible death in Dragon Ball Z.
76. The following people were confirmed to be killed by Super Boo's Human Extinction Attack, but if they weren't, they were definitely killed when Kid Boo blew up Planet Earth:
- Tenkaichi Tournament Announcer

- Neiz: Killed by Piccolo. Neiz electrocuted Piccolo, but Piccolo, while electrified, grabbed onto Neiz's head, electrocuting him and killing him.
- Cooler: His own gigantic energy ball (dubbed Supernova in the games) was hit back at him by Goku with a Kamehameha, sending him crashing into the sun where he was incinerated. He was later revived by the Big Gete Star when his brain was absorbed by it.
- Salza: Killed by Piccolo. Salza was about to kill Goku and the others, weakened from battle, when Piccolo shot a Special Beam Cannon through him, killing him.
- Cooler/Big Gete Star: Killed by Vegeta. Cooler, now the core of the Big Gete Star, and almost entirely made of wire, attacked Goku, but Vegeta sliced off his arm with an energy disc, and Goku shot Cooler with a small energy ball, blowing him up and destroying both Cooler and the Big Gete Star for good. To prevent the Big Gete Star or Cooler from reappearing, Vegeta crushed the chip that the Big Gete Star started out as.
- Android 15: Head cut off by Vegeta, causing him to explode.
- Android 14: Chopped in half by Trunks with his sword, causing him to explode.
- Android 13: Killed by Goku. Goku absorbed the energy of his Spirit Bomb (partially because he can't contain the Spirit Bomb if he tried to throw it as a Super Saiyan, but it's also because 13 knew all about the Spirit Bomb, and it wouldn't have worked on him) and punched a hole in 13, and the energy around Goku disintegrated him, saying "Goku must die!"
- Moah: Killed by Paragus with an energy wave. He had previously expressed concern about the comet heading for New Vegeta (which would eventually destroy it).
- Paragus: Killed by Broly. Paragus attempted to leave his son behind to die on the planet, and escape in an escape pod. Broly, however, got to Paragus and picked up his pod and crushed it, then threw it into the comet heading for New Vegeta.
- Krang: Presumably killed when the comet hit New Vegeta, as Paragus' scientist was not seen among the Z Fighters and alien slaves on Piccolo's ship. It is also likely that he was killed before then, when Broly sent energy waves in all directions, destroying Paragus' soldiers and spaceship.
- The Intergalactic Fighters: Killed by Bido, Bujin, Zangya, and Kogu.
- Doskoi: Killed by Bido. Doskoi's Battle Zone was a desert (possibly because of Bido) and Bido came out of the sand and choked him to death.
- Kogu: Killed by Trunks. Trunks broke his sword and impaled him with his hand, killing him even though Kogu was in his transformed state.
- Bido: Punched in half by Super Saiyan 2 Gohan, causing him to explode, Cell Junior style.
- Bujin: Kicked in half by Gohan, causing him to explode, Cell Junior style.
- Zangya: Killed by Bojack. In an attempt to distract Gohan, Bojack snuck behind Zangya, pushed her in front of him, and shot an energy ball through her at Gohan, killing Zangya instantly.
- Bojack: Killed by Gohan. After Gohan impaled Bojack with his hand, the two shot energy beams at each other (Gohan's was a Super Kamehameha, while Bojack's was a Galactic Buster). They ran at each other through their beams, and in this final attack, Bojack was killed, completely disintegrated inside the explosion.
- The monster: The dinosaur that terrorized the village was defeated by Goten and Trunks, then cooked and eaten by the villagers.
- Broly: Hit into the sun by a triple Kamehameha from Goku, Gohan, and Goten. This presumably killed Broly (though he was also thought to have died in the previous movie, which was proven false). Although Broly isn't seen again, Lord Jaguar made a clone of him.
- Jaguar's dog: As it attempted to bite Bio-Broly, it ran into the acidic culture fluid, and was killed when it ate him.
- Maloja: Killed by the culture fluid. It went into a room where he was attempting to steal some of Jaguar's money, and when he saw it he tried to cast a spell on it, but had no effect, and was consumed by it.
- Multiple Scientists: Killed by the culture fluid. They piled into a elevator, however the culture fluid poured in and consumed them.
- Bio-Broly: Consumed by the culture fluid (in a scene mirroring Gohan getting Broly to fall into lava in the previous movie) but this only made him bigger. However, as he was merged with the culture fluid, he turned to stone because of the sea water. Goten and Trunks finished him off with a Kamehameha.
- Mini Janempas: Killed with a series of punches and kicks from Goku.
- Frieza: Killed by Gohan. Gohan punched him in the stomach, causing him to explode, and causing all his henchmen (and many henchmen from the previous movies) to run off.
- Janemba: Killed by Gogeta, the fusion of Goku and Vegeta. Gogeta shot an energy ball of glittering dust (dubbed in the games as Stardust Breaker) through Janemba's chest, disintegrating him and freeing the teenage ogre from his control.
- The Dictator: Killed along with the rest of his army by Gotenks using the Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack.
- Minotia: Stomped on by Hirudegarn.
- Hoy: Stomped on by Hirudegarn, mirroring Babidi's death at the hands of Majin Buu.
- Hirudegarn: Killed by Goku. Goku did his Dragon Fist Attack, and the dragon stabbed through Hirudegarn and wrapped around him, and then exploded, destroying the evil monster once and for all.
