Gero Attacks!

Android 20 grabs Piccolo

The Z-Fighters continue their search amongst the rocks for the hidden Android 20. During the search, Android 20 attacks Piccolo and begins draining his energy. Gohan manages to save him by smashing Android 20 from his back with a Double Axe Handle before it is too late.

As the others gather around, Piccolo says he will fight the android alone. Android 20 notices that Vegeta is still up to full strength and begins to ponder on how his strength may be problem for him. While Android 20 is thinking, Piccolo removes his turban from his head and his cape, and prepares to fight him. As the battle ensues, Android 20 is baffled to find Piccolo is much stronger than he anticipated. Piccolo explains to him that thanks to a warning from three years prior they have prepared well for the Androids arrival.

Future Trunks DBZ Episode 131

Future Trunks arrives after the battle against Android 19

Meanwhile, Yamcha and Chi-Chi watch over Goku having just gave him the heart medicine concerned on whether or not it will work.

Elsewhere, Future Trunks has returned from the future and finds his last visit somehow changed the course of events. He finds that he was too late as Amenbo Island is already in ruins. Sensing a large Ki, he heads to the battle but on the way notices the head of Android 19, stunned as to who it is. He hears a large explosion in the distance and heads over to the others.

Vegeta finds out from Piccolo blurting out Trunks' name that Trunks is his son from another future, with him silently expressing pride when recalling Future Trunks' slaying of Frieza. Trunks then notifies the rest of the Z Fighters that he has never seen these Androids before.

Differences from the manga[]

  • Yamcha and Chi-Chi watching over Goku having just taken the medicine is exclusive to the anime.


  • Piccolo could not hear Android 20 chattering to himself about his plot to steal his energy nearby, which seems highly unlikely considering that earlier during the Trunks Saga, he eavesdropped on Goku talking with Future Trunks from across the crater, especially considering that he was searching for Android 20 and would have been on high alert. Furthermore, the other Z Fighters don't sense Piccolo's drop in energy despite earlier sensing Yamcha's when the latter was drained by #20 with the former having to alert Gohan via telepathy instead.
  • When Gero is scanning for energy to absorb, his scanner shows Krillin and Tien's original Japanese names, Tenshinhan and Kuririn. When Android 20 is scanning Piccolo, his scanner spells it Piccoro.
  • In "A Handy Trick", when Goku knocks off Android 20's hat, it appears that the hat was made from fabric. When Gohan knocks it off in this episode, it makes clanging sounds, indicating that the interior of the hat may be made of metal.
