Goku and Pan fire their blasts at exactly the same time

While Goku and Trunks are losing to the level-three Luud, Pan is beating up Dolltaki because of the harassment she endured as a doll. Dolltaki reveals there is a way out; however, he realizes the consequences would be dire, so the Para Brothers force him to reveal the secret to escaping their mechanical prison. Luud was built around a single cell and the destruction of this cell would end the Machine Mutant.

Meanwhile, Goku is losing to the powerful Luud. Pan, in order to help Goku, fires a ki blast at the red cell. Dolltaki explains that Luud needs to be attacked from inside and out. Dolltaki continues harassing Pan, which results with her beating him up. The Para Brothers then start to sing in order to use their telepathy. Goku and Trunks learn only a blast to the heart will defeat him. Goku and Pan struggle to shoot at exactly the same time. After chanting "Pepper pot, pickle pot, purple pot," the great Luud is finally defeated.
