Enma revealing her true appearance to Goku

When Goku was sent to Enma's territory by Frieza and Cell's Hell's Buster, she disguises herself as a little girl in order to trick him and then inflicts her torture system on him. After being a victim of the four kinds of torture, Goku is finally imprisoned on ice by Enma's freezing machine, but the ice soon melts because it only works with someone who is already dead and, since Goku is alive, he escapes from the icy prison, leaving Enma very surprised. Goku then uses the freezing machine against Frieza and Cell, successfully freezing them both before accidentally breaking them into pieces.

Enma's torture system

Enma's Terrible Torture Tour is divided in four stages: a boiling cauldron, tickling torture, scalding sauna, and freezing machine.
