DBC215 03

A Saibaiman grabs Yamcha

The Saibaiman can barely move as Tenshinhan walks back over to the others, and Nappa says that the Saibamen have battle powers of 1,200. Vegeta says that guy must have surpassed that, then. Nappa still cannot believe this, and then the Saibaman starts to get back up. Vegeta kills it himself, and Nappa asks why. Vegeta says it could not have won, and it was the first Saibaman anyway. He reminds the others to go all out, and the good guys wonder about these Saiyans.

Kuririn wants to go next, but Yamcha volunteers instead, explaining that Kuririn’s already been returned to life by the Dragon Balls once, and he cannot be brought back again. Vegeta and Nappa send out the next Saibaman, and he and Yamcha go at each other and disappear from view. Gohan cannot see them at all, and Piccolo yells at Gohan to feel the movements of their ki.

DBC215 05

Krillin fires the Scattering Bullet

Yamcha and the Saibaman exchange some punches until the Saibaman flies up onto a nearby mountain. Yamcha flies up after it, and the Saibaman then dives at Yamcha. But Yamcha flies up above the Saibaman, and then fires a Kamehameha down at it. It is a direct hit, knocking the Saibaman straight into the ground. Yamcha lands and stands over it, saying these things are not very strong and that he will take on the remaining four himself. The Saibaman suddenly jumps back up and latches onto Yamcha, then self-destructs!

Kuririn runs over to Yamcha’s body and confirms that he is dead. He thinks of how Yamcha had a bad feeling and died in his stead, then thinks of Pu’er and Bulma. “…Assholes!! Guys, get out of the way!!!” Kuririn then charges up, puts out both hands, and fires off a two-handed blast at Vegeta and Nappa.

Major Events[]

  • Yamcha is killed by a self-destructing Saibaman.
