Duel on a Vanishing Planet!
Duel on a Vanishing Planet! The Final Showdown! (Two Remain On A Vanishing Planet! This is the Final Showdown!) is the fifty-second episode of Dragon Ball Z Kai. The episode first aired in Japan on April 11, 2010. Its American air date was February 9, 2011. Its Dragon Ball Z counterparts are "Duel on a Vanishing Planet", "Pathos of Frieza", and "Frieza Defeated!!"
As the battle between Goku and Frieza continues, it seems neither warrior is going to win before Namek's explosion. However, Goku soon notices that Frieza's power is quickly decreasing, due to his 100% output taking its toll on his body. Satisfied that he has won, Goku decides to call it quits and begins to depart towards his spaceship. Unable to accept this, Frieza launches a pair of heat-seeking ki disks at Goku. The Super Saiyan manages to avoid this, and, because of Goku's combat intelligence, Frieza is sliced in half by his own attack.
- In the Nicktoons and Toonzai broadcast of the episode, when Frieza gets cut in half, some scenes have been removed and an earlier scene was added so viewers do not see Frieza get cut.
- Although this is not the final episode of Dragon Ball Z Kai's Frieza Saga, it is the last episode on the saga's corresponding DVD release.
- In the English dubbed version of the show, this is the final episode to feature Kenji Yamamoto's musical score. Subsequent episodes use Shunsuke Kikuchi's background music.
