His anger at the Earthlings doesn't last, however, since Frieza arrives at the battlefield at that very moment. The tyrant begins charging up, terrifying everyone but Vegeta who seems strangely calm. The entire planet begins to shake violently as Frieza summons his power - as Goku remains in the rejuvenation chamber, slowly recovering from the injuries his body had taken during the earlier Ginyu conflict.

December 20, 2009 37
Piccolo arrives on Namek following being resurrected and wished there. He begins rushing towards the battlefield, and along the way encounters an ailing Nail, on the brink of death. Piccolo reluctantly performs Namekian fusion with Nail, which increases his power substantially, and begins rushing back to the battlefield. Meanwhile, Frieza, after battling the Earthlings and Vegeta in his first form, transforms to his second form following some goading from Vegeta - and this increases the tyrant's power level to over a million! With his increased power, Frieza charges at Krillin in the air, impaling him on his horn.

December 27, 2009 38
After impaling Krillin, Frieza ejects him into the water. Gohan rushes to rescue his friend, but his path is blocked by the tyrant. Gohan's rage from seeing a friend in pain gets the better of him, and he immediately starts unloading on Frieza, much to Vegeta's surprise. As Gohan knocks Frieza out of the air, Dende saves Krillin from drowning and heals him (this was the power that Guru gave him.) Frieza charges towards Gohan to get his revenge, only to be blasted in the back by Vegeta - which to the Saiyan prince's disappointment, does absolutely nothing. Frieza begins thrashing Gohan, but is rescued by the healed Krillin, who distracts the tyrant with numerous attacks and escapades - just enough time for Dende to heal Gohan. Unfortunately, it becomes clear that Frieza outclasses them all, so the three warriors begin blasting him with everything they've got. Once again, it has no effect, but as they are about to charge him in their moment of desperation, Piccolo finally arrives on the battlefield, announcing that he will be the one to win the battle.

January 10, 2010 39
Armed with the combined power of Nail, Piccolo begins battling Frieza - and surprisingly manages to hold his own! The two exchange blows pretty evenly for a good portion of the fight. Piccolo eventually realizes Frieza slightly holds the upper hand, so he removes his weighted clothing and begins winning against the tyrant. Frieza finds himself backed into a corner, so he decides it is best to transform again to fight Piccolo. Becoming his grotesque, ugly third form, Frieza once again gains the upper hand and begins obliterating Piccolo with a rapid finger beam blast. Gohan rushes to rescue his mentor, and when Krillin tries to follow suit, Vegeta stops him - revealing to Krillin he may have a strategy that will allow him to defeat the tyrant.

January 17, 2010 40
Frieza dodges Gohan's attack but quickly finds himself on the receiving end once again - the young half Saiyan unleashes a massive energy blast that even the tyrant himself has difficulty deflecting! Upon seeing what he is up against in the form of these warriors who seem to be getting progressively stronger, Frieza begins transforming to his fourth form - the final and most powerful. Vegeta's plan to defeat Frieza involves having himself mortally wounded and then being healed by Dende - which the Saiyan prince achieves by having Krillin shoot an energy blast through his chest. Dende has no interest in healing Vegeta (who harmed so many of his people), however, and flies over to heal Piccolo instead. However, Nail's essence within Piccolo tells him that healing Vegeta may be the only way to win the fight - so Dende reluctantly does so. Frieza eventually reaches his final form, and immediately kills Dende with an energy blast - having witnessed his healing abilities while transforming. Krillin, Gohan, and Piccolo go on the attack but the tyrant dodges every single attack they throw his way. Vegeta watches them fight from a hill, preparing to charge up to his newfound power level as Gohan finds himself on a direct collision course with another one of Frieza's blasts.

Vegeta intervenes, using his newfound power and speed to rescue Gohan from Frieza's blast. While Gohan is grateful, Vegeta tells him he doesn't care about him and only did it as a demonstration of his abilities - now that he has declared himself a Super Saiyan. The Saiyan prince powers up to unbelievable levels of strength, which leave Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo in awe - but no matter how much he powers up, and how many deadly attacks he dishes out, Frieza dodges and deflects everything. Vegeta quickly finds himself on the wrong end of the tyrant's attacks, and is quickly slaughtered. Gohan attempts to help but is stopped by Piccolo, who claims he wouldn't be able to do anything anyway. As Vegeta continues to get massacred by Frieza, Goku finally recovers, blasting his way out of the rejuvenation chamber and flying to meet his friends on the battlefield.

Vegeta is no match for Frieza and is quickly incapacitated. Piccolo, Gohan and Krillin are forced to stand idly by while Frieza continues to thrash the Saiyan prince. However, Goku arrives at the battlefield, and surprisingly, Frieza finds his appearance very familiar (this is because he resembles his father Bardock, who lead a lonely last stand in attempt to save Planet Vegeta.) An ailing Vegeta tells Goku to defeat Frieza, as he was the one who destroyed the Saiyan home world and their entire race. Mocking Frieza, telling him Goku really IS a Super Saiyan, the tyrant blasts him through the heart, giving him just seconds to live. Begging Goku to win the fight, Vegeta finally passes away. Goku quickly makes a grave and buries him, setting his sights on Frieza himself - preparing for his toughest battle yet.

Goku jumps into battle against Frieza, and quickly proves to be more of a challenge than Frieza thought. The two exchange powerful blows and discover their levels of strength are nearly equal. As our hero and the tyrant attempt to one-up each other, Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo back away to watch the battle from a safe distance, while Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu watch from King Kai's planet in the afterlife. At one point during the battle, Goku is able to take advantage of Frieza's inability to sense another's presence, but Frieza counters this by trapping Goku in an exploding ball of energy that nearly kills our hero. However, Piccolo claims that even after all this, neither Goku nor Frieza is fighting at full power just yet.

February 14, 2010 44
Goku and Frieza's battle continues, with the two pretty evenly exchanging blows. However Goku is in for a shock when he discovers the tyrant has only been using 1% of his total power! Frieza boosts his power up to 50%, and Goku is quickly overwhelmed. The warriors on King Kai's planet aren't worried, because Goku supposedly is still wearing weighted clothing and hasn't used the Kaio-ken attack. Much to their dismay, King Kai informs them that Goku is no longer wearing weighted clothing and that he has been using the Kaio-ken the entire time! Meanwhile, Bulma meets Captain Ginyu (in a frog's body), and gets her body stolen. The two of them arrive at the battlefield where Goku and Frieza are continuing to duke it out - with Goku quickly outclassed by the powered-up tyrant.

Meanwhile, Goku continues to be thrashed by Frieza. However, he sees a vision of how Frieza could destroy everyone he loves - and as a result, he uses the 20x Kaio-ken alongside a massive Kamehameha against Frieza. However, even this is not enough to defeat the tyrant, and the use of the 20x Kaio-ken severely weakens Goku. He then has another vision, this time of Vegeta and other Saiyans of the past, including his father Bardock. Motivated once again, he gets back on his feet as Frieza lunges at him.

February 28, 2010 46
Despite his renewed confidence, Goku realizes he still has no prayer of victory against Frieza, who remains to be using only 50% of his full power. At this point, Goku decides to use his ultimate technique - the Spirit Bomb. With so little energy from living things left to absorb on Namek, Goku absorbs energy from neighboring worlds as well. As he tries to concentrate, Frieza continues to pummel him. Piccolo decides to intervene, taking what energy Gohan and Krillin have left. Before Frieza can obliterate Goku with a beam to the forehead, Piccolo stops him with a full-force kick to the head. The now-distracted Frieza goes after Piccolo, whose attacks do nothing to phase him. The Namekian is quickly floored by Frieza- as Goku continues charging the Spirit Bomb.

However, Frieza reappears and, though badly damaged from the Spirit Bomb, he is still powerful enough to take them all out. Frieza fires a beam straight at Goku, but Piccolo jumps in the way and takes the beam to the chest, which knocks him unconscious. Frieza next sets his sights on Krillin and causes his body to explode from the inside, killing him. Enraged by the loss of his best friend, Goku undergoes a radical transformation in which his eyes turn green, his hair turns blonde, and his body is surrounded in an aura of golden light. With his powers now greatly enhanced, Goku orders Gohan to take Piccolo and Bulma to his spaceship and leave Namek, while he handles Frieza.

As the epic battle between Goku and Frieza rages on the dying planet Namek, King Kai is informed by Kami on Earth that Mr. Popo has gathered all seven Dragon Balls. Upon learning of the Earth's Dragon Balls' ability to resurrect multiple people in their single wish, King Kai asks that they be used to bring back to life all those on Namek who were killed by Frieza and his minions, thus also bringing back Guru (whose natural death was hastened just slightly by all the suffering Frieza had caused his planet), as well as the Namekian Dragon Balls, which still have one more wish to be used. King Kai plans to use this final wish to teleport everyone on Namek to Earth except for Frieza, leaving the tyrant to be the only one present when Namek explodes. Mr. Popo then summons Shenron and fulfills King Kai's first wish.

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 energy disks at Goku.

However, Frieza lets his pride get the better of him and unleashes one final energy blast at Goku, but the Super Saiyan easily repels the blast right back at the tyrant and seemingly destroys Frieza.

Yamcha is then brought back to life with the third wish.

The Z Fighters (plus Bulma with a young Trunks) gather at the island in anticipation of the androids' attack. However, as the time approaches, Gohan reasons that due to being artificial humans, their enemies have no readable ki and can therefore only be found visually. The fighters then descend into the nearby city to search out their enemies. After a period of searching, Yamcha becomes the first victim of the androids, after being impaled and having his energy absorbed by Android #20.

Meanwhile, it is revealed to Goku that the androids are a result of years of research conducted by Dr. Gero, in which miniature spy robots were used to analyze Goku's fighting techniques and developments in strength, all in an attempt to exact revenge on Goku for destroying the Red Ribbon Army. As a battles ensues between Super Saiyan Goku and Android #19, it becomes evident that Goku is losing the upper hand, especially once the android absorbs Goku's Kamehameha wave. Gohan then reveals that Goku never became sick from the heart virus (as was predicted by Trunks), and that it seems to have affected him six months later than planned. As Goku struggles to fight, the android prepares to finish the battle by absorbing Goku's remaining energy.

Before Android #19 can finish draining Goku's energy, Vegeta finally arrives, saving Goku by kicking the android in the face. Yamcha then escorts Goku away from the battlefield. Vegeta then squares up to the androids, and much to everyone's surprise, transforms into a Super Saiyan. It is revealed that whereas Goku's transformation was triggered by the desire to protect his friends and family, Vegeta's was triggered purely by the desire to become stronger, as well as his anger at being surpassed by Goku. The battle then begins, and it's clear that Vegeta has the edge over Android #19. Even the android's energy absorption attack proves futile, as Vegeta tears off the android's arms, making the technique impossible to use. As the android runs in fear, Vegeta launches his 'Big Bang Attack' and finishes the battle, leaving nothing but the android's head intact. Android 20 then escapes into the nearby cliffs, planning to use the terrain to launch a surprise attack on the fighters.

He then attacks Piccolo from behind and begins to drain his energy, although this is thwarted by Gohan, who senses Piccolo's fading ki and attacks the android. After receiving a senzu bean, Piccolo then faces off against his attacker, and proves to be more than a match for the android. Meanwhile, Trunks finally returns from the future, and is disturbed to find that the remains of Android #19 are different from the androids that he faced in his own timeline. He then arrives at the current battlefield, and also seems not to recognize Android #20. Realizing that he has no chance of victory, Android #20 decides to retreat to his laboratory, but not before launching a huge blast that engulfs most of the area - including Bulma's ship, which plummets towards the ground.

Bulma then reveals that Android #20 may actually be the androids' creator, Dr Gero, who has seemingly converted himself into one as well. The group then plan to find the lab and destroy the androids before Dr Gero can activate them. Vegeta also sets off to find the lab, but with the intentions of fighting the androids as a demonstration of his power.

Although initially appearing loyal, the duo demonstrate their independence when Android #17 destroys Gero's remote, ensuring that he cannot deactivate them should they disobey him, and Android #18 attempts to activate Android #16 - a fully mechanical model deemed a failure by Dr Gero. Android #17 then kills Dr Gero, by severing and then crushing his head. In an act of desperation, Trunks launches a large ki blast at the androids, hoping to destroy Android #16 before he is activated. Although the entire lab is decimated, both Androids and #16's pod remain intact, and he is awakened anyway. The trio then decide to carry out there initial orders, and set out to kill Goku.

Goku and Gohan are heading towards a reunion with Goku's friends. Elsewhere, an odd-looking spacecraft crash lands on Earth. A man in battle armor emerges from the vessel and flies off to scout out a powerful life form he locates with the help of an apparatus on his eye. Piccolo is nearly killed by the stranger, but this is averted when the man leaves to scout out a more powerful life form.

He then asks Goku to join them in exterminating the population of Earth, taking Gohan hostage when Goku refuses. Piccolo appears and offers to help him defeat Raditz, Goku accepts his offer and together they follow after Raditz.

As Gohan knocks Frieza out of the air, Dende saves Krillin from drowning and heals him (this was one of his hidden powers that the Grand Elder had unlocked). Frieza charges towards Gohan to get his revenge, only to be blasted in the back by Vegeta - which to the Saiyan prince's disappointment, does absolutely nothing. Frieza begins thrashing Gohan, but is rescued by the healed Krillin, who distracts the tyrant with numerous attacks and escapades - just enough time for Dende to heal Gohan. Unfortunately, it becomes clear that Frieza outclasses them all, so the three warriors begin blasting him with everything they've got. Once again, it has no effect, but as they are about to charge him in their moment of desperation, Piccolo finally arrives on the battlefield, announcing that he will be the one to win the battle.

Frieza then decides to transform to his fourth form - the final and most powerful. Vegeta's plan to defeat Frieza involves having himself mortally wounded and then being healed by Dende - which the Saiyan prince achieves by having Krillin shoot an energy blast through his chest. Dende has no interest in healing Vegeta (who harmed so many of his people), however, and instead heals Piccolo, who then convinces him to heal Vegeta as well. Frieza eventually reaches his final form, and immediately kills Dende with a ki blast - having witnessed his healing abilities while transforming. Krillin, Gohan, and Piccolo go on the attack but the tyrant dodges every single attack they throw his way.

However, Goku arrives at the battlefield, and surprisingly, Frieza finds his appearance very familiar (this is because he resembles his father Bardock, who lead a lonely last stand in attempt to save Planet Vegeta). When Vegeta mocks Frieza, claiming that Goku really is a Super Saiyan, the tyrant blasts him through the heart, giving him just seconds to live. Before his death, Vegeta informs Goku that Frieza was responsible for the destruction of the entire Saiyan race, begging him to defeat the tyrant and avenge their people.

However, even this is not enough to defeat the tyrant, and the use of the 20x Kaio-ken severely weakens Goku. He then has another vision, this time of Vegeta and other Saiyans of the past, including his father Bardock. Motivated once again, he gets back on his feet as Frieza lunges at him.
46 The Final Trump Card! Goku's Ultimate Spirit Bomb! November 18, 2010

As he tries to concentrate, Frieza continues to pummel him. Piccolo decides to intervene, taking what energy Gohan and Krillin have left. Before Frieza can obliterate Goku with a beam to the forehead, Piccolo stops him with a full-force kick to the head.

Frieza fires a beam straight at Goku, but Piccolo jumps in the way and takes the beam to the chest, which knocks him unconscious. Frieza next sets his sights on Krillin and causes his body to explode from the inside, killing him. Enraged by the loss of his best friend, Goku undergoes a radical transformation in which his eyes turn green, his hair turns a golden color, and his body is surrounded in an aura of golden light.
