Goku's New Power (ケタ外れの強さ!! 伝説の超サイヤ人孫悟空, Ketahazure no Tsuyosa!! Densetsu no Sūpā Saiyajin Son Gokuu; lit. Uncommon Strength!! The Legendary Super Saiyan Is Son Goku) is the thirty-first episode of the Namek Saga and the sixty-sixth overall episode in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. It first aired on November 7, 1990.



Gohan warning Goku about Recoome

Goku finally lands on Namek. Recoome, Burter and Jeice wonder what just landed, thinking it was some more Namekians. Krillin, still laying on the ground, is relieved that Goku has arrived, believing that he would make it safely. Using Ki Sense, Goku finds the two strongest beings on Namek, Frieza and Captain Ginyu. He wonders why he cannot sense Gohan and Krillin's powers, until he realizes that they are barely alive. Goku races to the battle scene, feeling confident because of his 100x gravity training.


Goku defeats Recoome with one blow

Burter and Jeice are surprised at Goku's speed, and Vegeta, injured from his battle with Recoome, feels not the least bit surprised. Goku tries to wake up Gohan, but as he is on the brink of death he doesn't respond. Goku feeds him a Senzu Bean and Gohan wakes up instantly, injuries healed, much to the shock of Recoome, Burter and Jeice. He feeds Krillin a Senzu Bean, and reads his mind to find out everything that was going on. He realizes that because of Vegeta, Gohan and Krillin are alive right now, so he gives Vegeta the last Senzu Bean. He then proceeds to face Recoome.

Elsewhere, Bulma is contacted by her father and asks him where Goku is. Back at the battlefield, Recoome prepares to unleash his ultimate technique, but before he can finish, Goku elbows him with great force in the stomach, knocking him unconscious. Burter and Jeice imply that it was a lucky blow, as they used their scouters to find Goku's power level at 5,000. Vegeta is not fooled, as he senses that Goku released all his power for a quick second to knock out Recoome. Vegeta thinks that Goku has become a Super Saiyan.
