"The future of Gohan…of Chi-Chi…not to mention the future of the entire universe, it all depends on me! And I don't care if you're a million times stronger than me, mark my words, I'm not going to let them down! So get ready Frieza 'cause this time you're going down!"

Embodiment of Fire (決着だ!!炎の化身 20倍界王拳のカメハメ波, Ketchaku da!! Hono no Keshin Ni-Ju Bai Kaioken no Kamehemeha) is the sixteenth episode of the Frieza Saga and the ninety-first overall episode in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on May 22, 1991. Its original American air date was October 12, 1999.



Frieza charges a Death Wave

Captain Ginyu blows his cover while inside Bulma's body, and frantically attacks Krillin, but to no avail. In a last ditch effort to survive and rejoin Frieza, Ginyu prepares to perform his Body Change technique on Piccolo, but Gohan throws Bulma, who is in the Namekian Frog's body, in the beam's path, switching Bulma to her original body and Ginyu to the body of the Namekian Frog again. As Bulma celebrates, an attack from Frieza blows her away, and she lands safely elsewhere.

Goku continues to battle Frieza with no success whatsoever, being pummeled around by the tyrant. Finally, Frieza throws Goku into a lake and stops him from resurfacing until Goku finally loses consciousness from lack of oxygen. However, a vision of a destroyed Earth and the deaths of all of his friends at Frieza's hands snaps him awake, and in his rage, he explodes out of the water. Declaring that he will not let Frieza win, Goku furiously powers up another Kaio-ken 20x attack and topples Frieza. He follows this up with a Kaio-ken Kamehameha which hits Frieza directly, but Frieza survives the blast, albeit with a singed palm.
