"You haven't figured it out yet? I'm the Saiyan who came all the way from Earth for the sole purpose of beating you. I am the warrior you've heard of in legends, pure of heart and awakened by fury, that's what I am. I am the Super Saiyan, Son Goku!"
Goku to Frieza

"The Angry Super Saiyan! Goku Throws Down the Gauntlet!" (おこれるスーパーサイヤじんりをげろそんくう Okoreru Sūpā Saiya-jin! Nanori o Agero Son Gokū!, lit. "The Angry Super Saiyan! Throw Your Hat in the Ring, Son Goku!") is the forty-eighth episode of Dragon Ball Z Kai. This episode first aired in Japan on March 14, 2010. Its original American airdate was November 27, 2010.


Super Saiyan Goku battles Frieza

The transformed Goku renews his battle with Frieza, and significantly outclasses the tyrant. Frieza launches several counterattacks at Goku, but they have no effect at all. As Frieza stares at his opponent, he realizes that his worst nightmare has come true; Goku is a Super Saiyan. In an attempt to defeat Goku, Frieza creates a Death Ball and hurls it into Namek's core, planning to destroy the planet.


  • This episode marks the first time that Goku's full name, Son Goku, is outright stated in an English dub.
    • Sean Schemmel, the English voice of Goku, said in a reddit interview he asked if he could say the full name, feeling that it was such a self-proclamation of who Goku is and wanted to give something fans would love.[1]
