Dragon Ball Wiki

"Last Resort" (そんくうなぞこうどう Son Gokū Nazo no Kōdō, lit. "Son Goku's Puzzling Behavior") is the two hundred second chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the four hundred second overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.

Cell punches Goku, sending him crashing into a nearby mountain. Cell charges after him, as Goku bursts out of the rubble and fires a whole bunch of blasts. Cell puts up a huge barrier to stop them all, as people around the world watch on TV. An old couple says that looks like Chi-Chi's husband. Bulma is watching with Kame-sennin at Kame House, and she thinks Goku is doing great. Kame-sennin does no t, though. "Goku can not win... Not only that, but I can see that he is fighting while knowing this. I do not know what he has planned, but..." The barrier is gone now, and Goku is panting really hard. Cell says Goku's strength looks to have gone down, and says he can have a Senzu Bean if he wants. That will make this an even greater fight.

Future Trunks yells at Kuririn to do like he says and give Goku a senzu, then he will definitely win. Vegeta yells at Future Trunks to shut up, saying he has no Saiyan pride. Kakarot would probably rather die than win like that. Right now, he is not even fighting for the Earth's sake. Future Trunks asks what they are supposed to do, be quiet and watch. Cell asks Goku if he can not eat a senzu because of his pride, and that Goku's chances of winning have gone up a bit.

Goku says nothing, then smirks, lands, and the aura around him disappears. "I give up! This is a submission! I know your strength very well now! So I will stop." Everyone is shocked, and the cameraman relays to Mr. Satan and Jimmy Firecracker that he said he was giving up. Cell asks Son Goku if he realizes what this means. If there is no one left to fight in the Cell Games, everyone on the Earth will die. Goku says there is still one left to fight him, but Cell says it is the same difference, Vegeta and Future Trunks are not even as strong as Goku is. The announcer tells Mr. Satan it is his turn again, and Satan freaks out. Satan suddenly "gets" a stomach cramp. Goku asks if it is okay for him to pick the next person to fight, and Cell realizes he is serious about giving in. Vegeta wonders what is going on, since there is nobody else who can win.
