Dragon Ball Z episodes
Trunks Ascends (超サイヤ人の限界突破!! 嵐を呼ぶトランクス, Supa Saiya-jin no Genkai Toppa!! Arashi wo Yobu Torankusu) is the tenth episode of the Perfect Cell Saga and the one hundred sixty-second overall episode in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on October 28, 1992. Its initial American air date was November 3, 2000.
The episode begins with Vegeta breathing hard. Android 16 is amazed that Vegeta still is not strong enough to defeat Cell. Cell punches Vegeta, who goes flying into rock pillars. He finally stops flying in the air and powers up, but he falls into the water. Krillin begs Future Trunks, who is now powering up, to help Vegeta.
“Vegeta will be angry, but at least you’ll save him!” Krillin yells.
Vegeta climbs out of the water infuriated, and he begins drastically powering up, preparing a Final Flash. The island begins to crumble.
Future Trunks: "Father is going to use a powerful attack!"
Krillin: "Either that, or he's going to fry us all!"
It cuts to Gohan in Super Saiyan form, blasting speedily. Goku calls him to eat and asks him to cook a steak. Goku throws it into the air and Gohan shoots it. Unfortunately, he unintentionally uses too much power and Goku’s hair catches fire.
Gohan: "But dad, your hair is on-" Goku: "Don't change the subject Gohan. You've got to learn to- Ahh!!! Put it out!- Gohan: I told you dad! Goku: -Put it out!"
It cuts back to Vegeta vs. Perfect Cell. Perfect Cell's arm is blown off and Vegeta begins laughing. However, Perfect Cell's arm suddenly regenerates, his cells from Piccolo making this possible, which shocks Vegeta. In shock that Cell was able to regenerate after the Final Flash, Vegeta attacks Cell in a panic, but Perfect Cell throws Vegeta in the air and elbows him in the back. Vegeta falls to the ground and his hair turns black, indicating his incapacitation.
Krillin says "Oh, no! Vegeta isn't a Super Saiyan anymore! Either he's unconscious or, well, you know!"
Future Trunks is now enraged so much that his eyes turn pure white, the rubber band holding his hair back breaks, and he is glowing bright. His energy is so high that it zaps Krillin! Cell shows fear of him. It appears that Future Trunks has revealed to be more powerful than his father.
