During the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament, they follow Goku in their car while the boy goes for a quick run. They catch Goku and Vodka tells him that the fight has been moved. He offers to take Goku to the new arena. Launch witnesses Goku getting in the car, so she chases after them. She easily defeats the bodyguards and tells Goku to run back to the arena which he made it just in time for his fight.
Years later, before the Cell Games, Goku goes to Vodka's fortress where he located two Dragon Balls. Vodka and his henchmen were at first afraid of Goku, putting up a protection shield around. However, Goku breakes it easily by sticking his finger into it, causing it to shatter. The big and muscular henchman stays in the fortress with Goku while he tries to solve the three little puzzles Mercenary Tao gave him in order to get Vodka's two Dragon Balls. Tao, Vodka and the thin henchman leave the fortress the six Dragon Balls. In the middle of the night, the big henchman almost tells Goku how to get the remaining puzzle apart, but Goku interrupts him and tells him he will not cheat. The henchman congratulates Goku when finally gets the last puzzle apart. Goku uses his Instant Transmission technique to find the others who are on the shore of a lake far away and tells them that he got all three apart. He picks up his jacket, takes the other two Dragon Balls and flies off to find the last one.
