Pay to Win (たちはだかる魔王!出番だ悟飯!!, Tachihadakaru Mao! Deban Da Gohan!!) is the seventh episode of the Babidi Saga and the two hundred twenty-sixth overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on May 4, 1994. Its original American air date was October 24, 2001.
The episode starts out with Android 18 about to fight with Mr. Satan (who is scared out of his mind) at the World Martial Arts Tournament. Mr. Satan imagines what will happen if he loses to Android 18: Android 18 laughing at him, Videl disowning him, and the entire crowd booing and throwing things at him. He then laughs and says "Watch out, you don't know what you're messing with!" while walking backwards. He then charges at Android 18 with his fists flying, but Android 18 dodges each one. She then puts him in a headlock and says she will throw the match for 20,000,000 Zeni. She lets go but the crowd thinks Mr. Satan kicked her away.
Mr. Satan throws Android 18 across the ring and she tells him to do his most powerful attack. He performs his Dynamic Mess Em Up Punch. She stands there and says "That was your most powerful attack". She then jumps out of the ring and Mr. Satan is declared the winner. Android 18 then says "I will see you tomorrow and get my money and if you don't pay I will kill you".
Back at Babidi's spaceship, Vegeta chastises Gohan for attending school and going on dates, and thus Gohan has not trained very much in the past seven years; Gohan admits that he is not quite as powerful as he was when he battled Cell. Vegeta soon grows angry at waiting so long for the next opponent to appear, but then, the door opens. To the Supreme Kai's disbelief, the next opponent is none other then Dabura, Babidi's strongest fighter. Dabura challenges Goku, Vegeta and Gohan to all face him at once, but Gohan insists that he will fight him alone. Babidi transports them to a mountain area to fight. Gohan and Dabura start fighting and Gohan sends him flying into a giant rock, but Dabura uses the shards of rock and sends Gohan flying. As the dust clears, Gohan turns Super Saiyan, which suggests that the real battle is about to begin.
- Mr. Satan vs. Android 18
- Gohan vs. Dabura
- Master Roshi parodies how the background changes during scenes of high emotion. Upon realizing that Android 18 will win the fight against Mr. Satan (and thus will win the prize money), Roshi begins to celebrate that he can start charging rent. His celebration is cut short when Yamcha brings up his concerns for Goku and the others, and thus sparking the background change. The camera zooms out and two men are seen holding the background and Roshi then says "Thank you boys, that'll be all for now."
- After Goten and Trunks transform and fly off in front of Videl, when the wind settles down, two points of Videl's hair are sticking up that resemble horns. This might be a reference to her name, which is an anagram for "devil".
