Plot overview

Pilaf 4d

A hooded figure summons Shenron

A hooded figure is seen to have gathered all of the Dragon Balls, summoning Shenron he wishes for a being capable of defeating Goku to appear. This causes the tyrant Frieza to be summoned, with Frieza having increased his power level to five point three billion.

Frieza blocks Goku

Frieza easily overwhelms Goku

As West City burns, Bulma is in capsule corp and calls Goku for assistance, the Saiyan arrives and to his surprise faces Frieza, he attacks the tyrant with a punch but Frieza blocks it with just his finger and then goes on to overwhelm Goku in combat. After being sent flying into a building Goku becomes a Super Saiyan to battle the tyrant, the two fly across the landscape fighting and eventually land in a desert area. Goku attacks with a Kamehameha, and Frieza responds with his Death Ball. However, when the clash of energy is over Goku is lying on the ground, heavily injured and barely able to move, while Frieza has not taken any damage at all.


Frieza about to attack

As Frieza is about to finish Goku, Super Saiyan Vegeta arrives along with Piccolo and Krillin to save him. Frieza is angered that Vegeta too is a Super Saiyan. Krillin then attacks with his Destructo Disc, but the tyrant easily dodges it, and then deflects the Special Beam Cannon that Piccolo fires at him.

Goku spirit bomb 4d

Goku attacks with the Spirit Bomb

As Goku barely stands and begins to prepare a Spirit Bomb, Vegeta attacks Frieza with his Final Flash, though the tyrant once again emerges unharmed and releases a kiai, knocking down Vegeta, Piccolo, and Krillin. However the three have bought Goku enough time and he unleashes a massive Spirit Bomb upon the tyrant, killing him once more.

Goku and the others then help to repair the damaged city, with Vegeta complaining about the work.

Timeline placement

Due to character designs, and the presence of Vegeta as a Super Saiyan, who is capable of using the Final Flash technique, and the fact that the highest form that Goku and Vegeta can take on is Super Saiyan, the events of the film seemingly take place during the ten day wait for the Cell Games. For some strange reason, Goku's outfit is the same like in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and Dragon Ball Super since he has the Go Kanji on his gi. However it is possible that it takes place in an alternate timeline of Age 767 (such as the 1st alternate timeline created by Future Trunks in which the battles with Cell and the Cell Games never occurred) like some of the Dragon Ball Z films according to Xenoverse 2.
