The Quiet, Fierce Battle (静かなる激闘, Shizuka Naru Gekitō; lit. "Quiet and Fierce") is the three hundred twenty-fourth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. This chapter's anime counterpart is the episode "The Last Wish".
Having seen Porunga from a distance, Frieza flies off towards him. Goku realizes that it must be the Namekian Dragon God. Dende begins to make his wish in Namekian. Frieza, reaching Porunga, yells out his wish. Dende is shocked to see Frieza but finishes making his wish. Goku arrives shortly after Frieza, agitated that Frieza has made his wish. Porunga then says that everyone except Frieza and Goku will be transported to Earth, having granted Dende's wish since it was spoken in Namekian. Goku is pleased while Frieza is shocked. Everyone on Namek except for the two of them is transported to Earth.
Goku says that one apparently needs to make their wish in Namekian. Frieza is confused as to how Dende is even alive, so Goku explains how they used the Earth's Dragon Balls to wish everyone on Namek back to life. Frieza says that the planet only has two minutes left, and agrees to a hand-to-hand duel with Goku if it means so much to him. With the exception of Dende and Guru, the Earthlings and Namekians transported to Earth are all confused as to what happened. Dende quickly heals Piccolo, while Guru explains that they are on Earth. On Namek, Frieza elbows Goku in the face, and Goku counters with a knee to Frieza's face.
