Salt jumps into battle and knocks Gohan to the ground. As Krillin goes to help, he is blocked off by Mustard. Garlic Jr. uses his powers to create a Throne for himself inside the Palace and tells Salt and Mustard that they can play with their opponents until Goku arrives but says that he will land the finishing blow. Gohan and Krillin quickly find themselves outmatched and Krillin ultimately takes Salt's attack in an attempt to save Gohan.

Differences from the manga
- The entire events of this episode were exclusive to the anime.
- In the Japanese version, Yajirobe and Korin discuss in the kitchen how Maron makes them act like idiots and that they can not get her to respect them. In the English version, Yajirobe and Korin argue over who Maron likes more.
- This episode is named "Fight with Piccolo" yet, Piccolo does not even fight in this episode until the very end.
- In the previous episode, Garlic Jr. is already outside the lookout and talking to Gohan and Krillin before Piccolo attacks, but in this episode Garlic Jr. comes out after the attack.
- Flashbacks in this episode feature animated footage from the 1989 film Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone.
- Maron is seen to have changed into regular clothes in this episode, despite not having any actual clothes with her besides her bathing suit when she went to Korin Tower.
- A possible reason for why Goku disappeared before Vegeta got to him would be because he was practicing the Instant Transmission technique while he was training on Planet Yardrat.
- As Vegeta is shielding himself from space debris, the lower back of his armor is colored white.
