 Plot Involvement
Main Plot Summary
During the occurring on planet Namek, Burter fights the Saiyan Goku, and is easily defeated by him in battle, and subsequently killed by Vegeta. In the canon of Dragonball, Burter never again appears after he died, but in Anime Filler, he and his fellow team members Jeice, Recoome and Guldo are invited by King Kai onto his planet, to spar with King Kai's students, Tien, Yamcha and Chiaotzu, who easily beat them in battle and send them down to hell. Burter again appears briefly during anime fillers in the Great Saiyaman Saga, where the Ginyu Force, Frieza, King Cold and Cell cause havoc in the underworld. However, Goku and Pikkon easily handle the uproar and defeat the villains once and for all, restoring order.
When the Ginyu Force is called upon by Frieza to sort out a few problems on Planet Namek. After Ginyu leaves with the Dragon Balls he leaves the rest of them to take care of Vegeta, Krillin and Gohan. After a game of Rock Paper Scissors to decide who will fight Vegeta which Recoome wins, Jeice, Burter and Guldo play to decide who will fight Gohan and Krillin, this time Guldo wins, leaving Jiece and Burter to watch on the sidelines. Guldo manages to get the upperhand on Krillin and Gohan but is killed by Vegeta before he can do anything to them.
Recoome steps up to fight Vegeta and the battle rages with Recoome dominating the battle, beating Vegeta badly. But before Recoome is able to kill him, Goku arrives out of nowhere and takes over the battle. It becomes obvious that Goku is much stronger than all of them as he takes down both Recoome and Burter without much effort, causing Jiece to flee back to Ginyu. Despite Goku sparing Burter's life, Vegeta takes it upon himself to kill both Burter and Recoome.
