"The Galaxy Strikes Back" (宇宙の恨み、フリーザを貫く!! Uchū no Urami, Furīza o Tsuranuku!!, lit. "The Hatred of the Universe, Pierces Freeza!!") is the one hundred twenty second chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the three hundred sixteenth overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
After stopping Frieza from killing him, Piccolo urges Goku to use the Spirit Bomb right away. Goku says that he needs just a bit more energy. Frieza complains about the Dragon Team, who he sees as pests. Suddenly Frieza is hit by an energy blast, which he and Piccolo see came from Gohan and Krillin. Piccolo is impressed that they are still fighting despite having given him most of their ki.
Having now become annoyed, Frieza decides to destroy the entire planet. However, as Frieza begins to charge his Death Ball, Goku finishes charging the Spirit Bomb. He launches the ball at Frieza, as the others look on with great interest. Frieza is surprised to see the giant ball, but yells that it is nothing and attempts to hold it back. However, the tyrant cannot hold it, and the Spirit Bomb explodes. On his planet, King Kai believes that Frieza has been defeated, and the others celebrate with him. On Namek, the Spirit Bomb has created a massive crater in the ocean. Krillin and Gohan have survived the blast, and climb on to a rock, wondering where Goku, Piccolo, and Frieza are.
