    Raditz was already dead and Goku has no reason to revive him.

    becouse he is irrelevant.
    Toriyama is not interested in bringing him back even if just to stay around and doing nothing.

    They died at the same time.
    Goku had believed his lie of changing already.
    Goku knew him for like, half a day tops.

    Goku wasn’t in a position to save his brother like he did with Freeza. And I’m sure he would’ve cut Raditz the same deal as Freeza if he could’ve been more useful in the ToP...

    Because he doesn't give a shit about Raditz. He only "helped" Freeza because he's immensely powerful and they needed the extra strength for their team. If Raditz wasn't a joke in power, maybe Goku would have done the same thing.

    Basically comes down to this, especially the first sentence

    Goku knew he was stronger than Freeza.
    Goku knew that he'd beat Freeza even if he gave him that little bit of energy
    Freeza was fucking cut in half, BEGGING for his life


    Compare that to

    Raditz stole Gohan
    For Raditz to die, Goku had to die as well, and that barely worked
    Raditz was at the time much stronger than either Goku or Piccolo, so bringing him back would mean they'd likely just die



    But most importantly

    Vegeta filled any role Raditz could've had. If Vegeta had died, maybe they'd have returned Raditz. Maybe.
    Otherwise, since the title of "Goku's brother" had no meaning whatsoever to Goku back then, so Vegeta filled any such role Raditz could've played.

    He spared Freeza because he felt bad for the weak lizard that barely provided a challenge for his Super Saiyan form

    Raditz was immensely stronger than Goku and it was clear that he wasn’t going to back down. Killing him was the only way to stop him

    We get this question every couple months it seems. But yeah, as others have said, Goku was in a position to help Frieza, but really couldn't with Raditz.

    Later on, when they were stronger, Goku probably wouldn't trust Raditz to bring him back and let him stay with him or one of their friends. Or even out in the wild cause he might hurt someone.

    And, as said many times before: What the hell was Toriyama thinking? Why would you introduce a long lost brother to your MC, then kill him off 2 chapters later, and never mention him again? It's so weird and such a waste.

    Imagine that happening in Harry Potter? Or Naruto? Or even YuYu Hakusho. They introduce a long lost relative to the MC, wtfpwn the strongest duo, then kill him off a bit later. This all happening at the BEGINNING of the story and they never mention him again ffor the rest of the series! xD (Or at least, nothing of merit.)
