Piccolo shields Gohan from Nappa's Bomber DX

Piccolo yells that it’s definitely Son Goku, and Gohan gets excited about his father coming. Nappa asks where Kakarrot is, and Vegeta picks up his scouter again and decides to find out. Goku continues zooming along on Kinto-Un, and says he feels two huge ki, two even huger ki, and one small ki. That figure must be wrong, so he wonders who is dead, and asks Kinto-Un to speed up. Vegeta reads his scouter, and his eyes then widen. He tells Nappa that Kakarrot will be here in four minutes, and that he has a battle power of 5,000! Vegeta thinks that if these guys here were able to change their figure so much, then Kakarrot must be able to make his change that much too.

Vegeta yells at Nappa to kill them all, and Nappa asks what about the Dragon Balls. Vegeta says he figures that on the Namekian’s home world, Planet Namek, they probably have even stronger Dragon Balls. Since Kakarrot’s returned to life, the legend must be true. Gohan begins yelling at Piccolo, telling him to run away. “I’ll hold him off until Father comes!! Because if Piccolo-san dies, God also dies, and the Dragon Balls will…!!!”

Piccolo thinks Gohan can’t hold him off by himself, and Kuririn can’t even move. “Hold me off, you say…? You’re making me laugh, brat!!!!” Nappa charges toward Gohan, but then Gohan gets pissed and kicks Nappa in the face, sending him flying into a nearby mountain. Nappa gets right back up out from the rubble, all busted up, and is seriously pissed. He then charges up, and launches an explosive blast at Gohan. Gohan can’t get away in time, but Piccolo suddenly runs in and stands in front of him, taking the blast himself.
