"I have a couple of unexpected guests. They got down snake road even faster than you did, eh let's just say they're not your ordinary guests. Okay I'll give you a hint. There's four of them. Let's also say you know these guys pretty well."
King Kai to Goku

"Stay Away from Frieza" is the thirteenth episode of the Namek Saga and the thirty-ninth episode of the original Saban dub for the Dragon Ball Z series. It aired in first-run syndication on October 25, 1997.



King Kai with the deceased Z Fighters

King Kai tells Goku that four visitors have come to his planet for training. Goku does not know what King Kai is talking about. King Kai explains that Piccolo, Yamcha, Tien Shinhan, and Chiaotzu have arrived to train under him. Goku is surprised. He tells King Kai that Vegeta is on Planet Namek, which surprises King Kai and Yamcha. But matters get worse as Goku explains that there is one more power on Namek, even more powerful than Vegeta, which makes King Kai and Yamcha nervous. King Kai walks forward to catch signals from Namek to check out whose power level could be so high. His antennas begin to shine and he can see on Namek. Then he spots Frieza. The Kai, desperately collecting himself, tells Goku not even to go near Frieza, prompting Goku asks why not. King Kai tells Goku that he is too weak to fight Frieza, as the galactic tyrant is the strongest being in the universe. But then Piccolo talks to Goku and says, “Attack him!”; a sentiment Goku agrees with. King Kai gets furious and makes Goku and others promise that they will not go near Frieza.


Vegeta learns of Zarbon's presence

Back on Namek, Dende is not eating his food and Krillin reassures him that it's not that bad. Bulma throws a pie at Krillin in retaliation for insulting her cooking skills. Dende explains that Namekians do not eat, they only drink water. Krillin realises that there is only one Namekian Dragon Ball left unclaimed as Frieza has five and Vegeta has one. So Krillin and Dende head to Grand Elder Guru to collect the final Dragon Ball. But to their horror Vegeta is headed their way. Krillin lowers his energy level. Vegeta now cannot sense him. Instead, he senses Zarbon and flies to fight him.
