The Ruthless Frieza is the eighth episode of the Namek Saga in the original Saban dub for the Dragon Ball Z series.


Frieza and his soldiers speed past a cave where Bulma, Gohan and Krillin are hiding. The Earthlings sense the incredible power of Frieza and realize that the powerful band of foes has four of the Namekian Dragon Balls in their possession, and that they are headed directly for another. Gohan and Krillin secretly pursue the group to a Namek village while Bulma again contacts Master Roshi with an intergalactic phone to inform him of their worsening predicament. Roshi passes Bulma's message on to Goku who is still in the hospital (as well as grabbing a nurse's behind upon his arrival) and just then, Yajirobe arrives with some Senzu Beans. Goku eats one to restore his health, and races to Capsule Corporation to follow up on a request he made to Dr. Brief to rebuild the space pod that Goku arrived on Earth in as a baby. The ship is ready for take off, so Goku immediately leaves for Namek and begins using the ship's Gravity Machine to train at 20x Earth's gravity.
