Gohan gives Krillin the Four-Star Dragon Ball

Vegeta vanquishes Zarbon and gains what he believes to be the last Dragon Ball. On his way to summon the Eternal Dragon, he runs into Gohan, who, unbeknownst to Vegeta, is returning to Krillin and Bulma with the final Dragon Ball.


Vegeta can't find his Dragon Ball, and remembers Gohan was near the place he hid it

Meanwhile, an angered Frieza summons the Ginyu Force to help him recover the Dragon Balls and capture Vegeta. When Gohan returns with the Four-Star Dragon Ball, Krillin takes him to see the Grand Elder Guru. Frieza, who is growing impatient, calls a new evil to Planet Namek.


  • In the Ocean Group dub, Vegeta refers to Bulma as "that gorgeous girl" that Krillin was with. While this is not the original dialogue, it is considered one of the first clues that is an implication of Vegeta and Bulma's eventual relationship.
