Son Goku Has Landed! (不思議な孫悟空, Fushigi na Son Gokū) is the two hundred seventy-ninth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. In the Viz release, it is the eighty-fifth chapter of Dragon Ball Z. This chapter's anime counterpart is the last portion of the episode "Let the Battle Begin" and the first half of the episode "Goku's New Power".
After Goku's spaceship lands on Namek, the battle between Recoome and Gohan comes to a halt. Recoome wonders aloud what kind of ship it was, and Krillin declares that Goku has come at last. As the spaceship door opens, Goku quickly detects the ki of Krillin, Gohan, and the Ginyu Force, and realizes that Gohan and Krillin are badly injured. He flies off to find their location.
Goku arrives quickly on the scene, to the shock of the Ginyu Force members. Goku gives Gohan a Senzu Bean while being taunted by Recoome, and his rapid recovery stuns Burter, Jeice, and Recoome. Gohan attempts to warn Goku how strong they are, but Goku ignores him and gives Krillin a Senzu Bean as well. Krillin attempts to explain the situation, but Goku simply reads his mind to discover everything that has happened. Krillin asks where Goku got this power, and Goku says he just felt it would work. He decides to give the last Senzu Bean to a puzzled Vegeta, before saying that he wants to fight the Ginyu Force alone.
Despite the objections of Krillin and Gohan, Goku walks out to face Recoome. Recoome asks what Goku's Power Level is, and Burter tells him that it is merely 5,000. Recoome says Goku is just another letdown. Vegeta, however, is confused by Goku's calm in the face of such danger, before having some sort of realization about what Goku might have become.
