- This article is about the eighteenth original Dragon Ball Z anime volume. For the rush attack, see Assault!.
Dragon Ball Z: Captain Ginyu - Assault is the eighteenth volume of the original Funimation Dragon Ball Z DVD and VHS releases. It includes the first three installments from the Ginyu Saga, episodes 54, 55, and 56.
The cover art features a determined Goku after landing on Planet Namek, a bag of Senzu Beans tied to his belt. This cover embodies the essence of Goku's furious rage as he arrives on Namek and prepares to unleash the heightened potential of training under 100 times Earth's normal gravity.
- Ginyu Assault - Burter and Jeice of the fearsome Ginyu Force launch an attack on Goku. But the tables turn as Goku's new power is way too much for them to handle. After Goku easily defeats Burter, Jeice rushes to retrieve the fiercest of all Ginyu... Captain Ginyu himself. But can their collective force match up to the new Goku?
- Incredible Force! - An angry Captain Ginyu initiates a battle with the fearless Goku, as the ruthless mercenary attempts to uncover Goku's true strength. But Goku cleverly conceals his power level from the militant monster. Finally, at the insistence of the captain, Goku astounds both Jeice and Ginyu by revealing his true power... A power unlike anything else they had anticipated.
- Frieza Approaches - Captain Ginyu and Jeice face up to Goku only to discover the truth about what they're up against. Elsewhere, Guru bestows a special gift of healing upon the young Namek, Dende. And Nail returns to defend Guru from the villainous Frieza. But will Nail's special training be enough?
- For their release of the Captain Ginyu Saga, FUNimation did not include recaps or even the lone next episode preview that are usually found on their discs. This is because episodes 54-56 aired in a slightly edited form on Toonami to make up for the place at which episode 53 had been edited to stop. To make up for this, FUNimation created new recaps for half of the Captain Ginyu Saga until the footage began to sync up to the Japanese version by episode 57. Therefore, the recaps seen in the TV version of episodes 54-56 are different from the recaps seen on later DVD and Blu-ray releases.
