"With one last blow, it seems that Frieza has finally been laid to rest. Indeed, Goku has saved the universe from Frieza's wicked reign. But, with Namek's explosion only moments away, can Goku save himself?"

"Mighty Blast of Rage" (フリーザやぶれる!!すべてのいかりをこめたいちげき Furīza Yabureru!! Subete no Ikari o Kometa Ichigeki, lit. "Freeza Defeated!! A Single Blast Packed With a Totality of Rage") is the thirty-first episode of the Frieza Saga and the one hundred fifth overall episode in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. This episode first aired in Japan on August 28, 1991. Its original American airdate was November 1, 1999.

Summary

Frieza, after Goku gave him some of his ki to escape Namek

Now recovered, following Goku giving him energy to survive being cut in half by one of his Death Saucers, Frieza rises up and cheekily asks Goku what he should do with the energy, but Goku retaliates by telling Frieza to leave and contemplate his humiliating defeat.

Frieza desperately fires an energy beam at Goku

On Earth, Grand Elder Guru realizes that it is now time for him to die again, this time of natural causes. The Namekians gather around Guru to pay him their final respects and, to their fury, realize that no one from Elder Tsuno's village is present, since they were murdered by Vegeta and not Frieza, and thus not brought back. Guru passes the power of the Namekian Dragon Balls to the second eldest Namekian, Moori, and disappears after bidding his children farewell. Gohan reflects on how Guru unlocked his hidden potential to help him do battle with the Ginyu Force. Gohan, Dende and Piccolo promise not to let Guru down, and regret how Krillin could not see this. Dende then tells them that Krillin can be revived with the Namekian Dragon Balls, since Porunga can revive someone more than once as long as the death was not natural. Gohan is delighted with the news, and even happier since this will apply to Chiaotzu as well.

Goku fires an Angry Kamehameha

On Namek, Frieza continues to taunt Goku about how he won the battle so heroically, yet he will be the one to die with the planet's explosion while Frieza will live on. Goku ignores him and flies off to find a way off Namek. Just then, Frieza is riddled with memories of how he first met Goku, toyed with him, allowed him to unlock his potential and was defeated by him. His anger begins to bubble up once more as Frieza reinforces his own mindset that he is the "Emperor of the Universe", the most powerful being there is and that Goku, a mere "monkey", should only be killed by him. Blinded by rage, Frieza uses the last of his strength to fire an energy beam at Goku from behind while declaring that Goku will die by his hand, but Goku sees it at the last minute. Finally deciding to not spare the space tyrant, a furious Goku fires his own beam back at Frieza.

Goku's beam effortlessly overpowers Frieza's, causing the tyrant to scream in terror as he is soon apparently obliterated once and for all. At last, Goku had succeeded in avenging billions of people across the universe, though he was somewhat grieved that he had no other choice but to put Frieza down. With the battle over, Goku flies off, attempting to find a way to escape Namek before it explodes.
