Burter and Jeice attack Goku

After taking out Recoome, Goku is now up against the last members of the Ginyu Force, Burter and Jeice. After telling them to leave, Jeice and Burter launch an attack on Goku, but Goku dodges their attacks with the greatest of ease. Jeice then tells Goku to attack him, and so he does punching Jeice right in the face. After Jeice calls Goku a "Cheapshot", Goku said that he thought they were ready for battle. Anyhow, the two members of the Ginyu Force go back to attacking and they got drilled by Goku. Burter then realizes that Goku had been hiding his power level from the scouter.

Meanwhile, Frieza is approaching Guru's house and thinking what it would be like to be immortal.

Back at the battlefield, Burter and Jeice continue their pitiful attacks against Goku, who keeps dodging them. Vegeta cannot believe Goku's power as he shot up in power very dramatically since Vegeta had fought him on Earth. Jeice and Burter try another attack, the Purple Spiral Flash. Although the attack was powerful, Goku was able to shield himself from it very easily.

Meanwhile, Bulma is stuck out in the middle of Namek when a Ki Blast from the Purple Spiral hits the cave where Bulma is residing. Now Bulma is furious.

Goku deflects Jeice's Crusher Ball

Back at the battlefield, Jeice and Burter prepare to launch another plan of attack. First, Jeice would throw his Crusher Ball and then Burter would attack Goku when he dodges the fireball. However, Goku does not dodge the attack. Instead, he deflects the fireball away, as if it was a beach ball, and launches right at Burter. Burter avoids the blast, but then gets angry and attacks Goku. Goku then disappears to appear right behind Burter, leaving Burter bemused.

  • Captain Ginyu holding try outs involving Frieza's henchmen pulling a pose in order to recruit any potential Ginyu Force members is exclusive to the anime.

  • Half of the uncut episode was shifted into the next episode when it was shown edited, as a result of the intense editing by Funimation in their original dub of the series. This was the first piece of work with Funimation's in-house cast. As a result, the entire Captain Ginyu Saga had to be shifted half of an episode, when broadcast on Toonami and on the edited videos, until scenes were cut to make up for lost time. When Funimation released the episode uncut, they redubbed both the scenes dubbed with the Ocean cast as well as the Funimation cast. This meant that even though they had previously dubbed certain scenes with the same cast, they redubbed those same certain scenes themselves with a new script and musical score.
  • This is the final episode to feature Nathan Johnson's score. For the next episode onward, it is replaced by the Faulconer Productions score, which is used for the remainder of the Orange Brick DVD and Blu-Ray Dragon Ball Z releases.
