Episode 201

Gohan as Great Saiyaman

Gohan lands in the middle of the road. The guys in the car stop and start yelling him asking him who he thinks he is. After a bit of thought, Gohan calls himself "The Great Saiyaman". The two guys start laughing and call it a stupid name. Gohan gets angry and starts pounding his foot on the ground, creating a huge crack in the ground. Scared, they quickly recant and say that it is a cool name. Gohan goes home, where he practices changing in and out of Great Saiyaman. The next day, a bus gets hijacked and Videl gets called out to rescue the people. Gohan wants to help, so he asks the teacher if he can go to the bathroom. He then runs outside and transforms and goes to the bus. Videl takes care of the hijackers when the bus goes off a cliff. Then the Great Saiyaman catches the bus and poses for the people before leaving.

Trivia

  • This episode (and episode 202) has an alternative jingle during the second half of the eyecatch.
  • This episode shows Bulma smoking a cigarette, a habit she most likely picked up from her father. Suprisly she is first seen smoking in the chapter 005 of the manga http://www.kanzenshuu.com/manga/chp-005/.
  • This is the first episode Goten appears in. When he first appears, the narrator refers to Goten as "the son Goku left with Chi-Chi when he went off to battle Cell". Going from the way the narrator puts this comment, it is possible Goten was born prior to Goku's departure for the Cell Games - though this isn't further substantiated. Most likely, the narrator's comment refers to Goku impregnating Chi-Chi, and not Goten's birth, since in the FUNimation dub, the narrator goes on to refer to Goten as "the son Goku never got to see".
  • When Gohan faces his concern about Videl taking on hijackers on her own to Sharpener and Erasa they assure him that Videl is "As strong as her father" making Gohan think of how Mr. Satan was knocked out of the ring by Cell. But rather than using the footage of that episode for that flashback scene, they completely re-shot that scene, making it rather different.  The difference being that Mr. Satan approaches Cell from behind and rather than being hit in the back of his head, Cell slaps Mr. Satan in the face and sending him flying out of the ring in the completely the opposite direction.

    Mr. Satan's defeat by the hand of Cell during a flashback in the "Great Saiyaman" saga which is actually quite different from the way he was defeated in the Cell games saga.

  • Bulma's appearance is updated in this episode. Her hairstyle is now bowl-cut and also wears gold hoop earrings which will become Bulma's new hairstyle until Episode 289 where she adds an open bang to her bowl-cut hairstyle and her gold hoop earrings are replaced with gold triangle earrings.
  • Bulma is wearing a green dress in this episode. She doesn't wear her green dress again until He's Always Late.
