"Power Up, Krillin! Frieza's Mounting Apprehension!" (パワーアップだクリリン! うごめくフリーザのかん Pawā Appu da Kuririn! Ugomeku Furīza no Yokan, lit. "It's a Power-Up, Kuririn! Freeza's Nagging Premonition") is the twenty-fifth overall episode in the Dragon Ball Z Kai series. This episode first aired in Japan on September 27, 2009. Its original American airdate was June 29, 2010.


Krillin and Dende arrive at the Grand Elder's location, a conspicuous tower out in the open, and are greeted by Nail, one of the strongest Warrior-type Namekians. The Elder speaks with them about the Dragon Balls, his ailing health, and the need for help to his Namekian children. He reads Krillin's past through telepathy where he learns of the history of Kami; of how Piccolo is the evil shed from Kami in order for Kami to become Earth's guardian. He also learns that Krillin's intentions are pure, and that he has dormant power; which he awakens. Krillin's power increases dramatically and he asks the Elder if Gohan can have his dormant power awakened, to which the Elder replies yes.

Orlen discovers the ruins of the Namekian village attacked by Vegeta, and interrupts a wounded Namekian attempting to crawl for the Dragon Ball that Vegeta hid. After learning who was responsible, Orlen cruelly executes the Namekian and flies off.


Zarbon retrieving a beaten Vegeta on Frieza's orders

Meanwhile, Zarbon reports to Frieza saying how he defeated Vegeta, even though he didn't find his corpse. Frieza chastises him for failing to consider that Vegeta might have found a Dragon Ball and hidden it, which is confirmed when Orlen arrives and reports on the village he found. Angered that Orlen killed the only witness who could have told them more, Frieza kills him, then sends Zarbon to fetch Vegeta and bring him back to the ship to heal. Zarbon finds Vegeta and places him in a Medical Machine inside Frieza's Spaceship. Frieza has a premonition of losing to a Saiyan who is not Vegeta.
