Piccolo, armed with the strength of two Namekian warriors, begins to battle Frieza, and the two are evenly matched. However, Piccolo realizes that Frieza has a slight upper-hand, so he removes his weighted training gear and begins winning the battle. Backed into a corner, Frieza transforms into his third form, and the battle completely turns tides. Frieza begins attacking Piccolo with a rapid finger beam blast, and Gohan rushes to rescue his mentor. Krillin begins to follow suit, but Vegeta stops him, revealing that he may have a strategy to defeat the tyrant.
