Goku running on the Snake Way

Kami takes Goku along with his body to the Other World. Bulma takes Raditz's scouter in order to repair it and find Yamcha, Tien Shinhan, and Chiaotzu. Piccolo takes Gohan into his custody and flies off, intending to train the boy in the martial arts. In the afterlife, Kami arranges for Goku to be allowed to travel to King Kai's Planet via Snake Way.

Krillin plans on how to tell Chi-Chi that Goku is dead

While Goku starts his journey along the road, Krillin unsuccessfully attempts to tell Chi-Chi of her husband's death and her son's kidnapping. Meanwhile, Piccolo tells Gohan of his father's fate and demonstrates to Gohan the power that the boy possesses by throwing him at a rock, which Gohan destroys reflexively.


  • In the TV version, when Piccolo has a flashback of what happened on the battlefield, he says Special Beam Cannon in its Japanese name Makankōsappō, while he said "Special Beam Cannon" when he actually did it.
  • In the edited TV version, the blood patch where Goku was has been removed.
  • In the Japanese version, the next episode title was not originally typed in the broadcast episode's next episode preview, but was later added for the home video release.[1]
