Goku's Kamehameha vs. Frieza's Nova Strike

Goku fires his Kamehameha at Frieza, who continues to fly directly towards Goku. The Kamehameha clashes with Frieza's Nova Strike, but after a brief struggle Frieza flies off to the side and comes at Goku. Frieza slams into Goku, sending him plummeting into the water below. Meanwhile, the Namekians killed by Frieza come back to life as a result of Mr. Popo's wish to Shenron. They quickly notice that something is wrong with the planet. The sky on Namek has gone dark as well, and Frieza wonders if this is part of the chain reaction that he set off. Shenron tells Mr. Popo that the wish has been granted, and King Kai eagerly relates the news to the Z Fighters on his planet.

Guru has come back to life as King Kai had hoped, and wonders how he has been revived. Porunga is thus alive as well. Frieza decides that he should get away from Namek, but is surprised when he sees Goku emerging alive from the water. He says that he will blow Goku to atoms like "the Earthling." When Goku realizes that Frieza is talking about Krillin, he becomes enraged. Meanwhile, King Kai tells Guru to wish everyone on Namek except for Frieza to Earth. Goku telepathically tells them to leave him on Namek as well, telling King Kai that he will never forgive him otherwise. Guru telepathically instructs Dende to make the wish to Porunga.

As the planet continues to collapse, Gohan and Bulma wonder what is happening. Having been revived, Vegeta wonders how he came back to life. As Dende prepares to make the wish, King Kai tells Goku to come back alive. Goku says that he will be fine. Inspecting the situation at hand, Frieza realizes that the Namekian Dragon Balls are being used.
