Goku angry after being reminded of Krillin

Goku and Frieza resume their fight, and this time, Goku has the upper hand, easily scoring a direct hit on the tyrant. With all of Frieza's victims on Namek now revived, King Kai telepathically contacts Grand Elder Guru and tells him of their plan to use Porunga's final wish to send everyone on Namek to Earth except for Frieza, but Goku overhears them and interrupts, requesting that King Kai and Guru use the wish to leave him on Namek as well so he can finish Frieza, threatening King Kai that he will never forgive him if he denies him the request. Although unwilling to see Goku die, King Kai and Guru reluctantly accept.


Dende appears in front of the Porunga to grant the last wish

Guru telepathically contacts Dende and instructs him to fly towards Porunga and make the wish. At the same time, Vegeta observes his surroundings and briefly believes he is dreaming, and gives himself a painful punch to the ribs. After recovering, and to Vegeta's further delight, he sees Goku and Frieza battling it out furiously, and flies towards them to aid Goku.


Dende resurrected

Frieza spots Porunga from afar and realizes that it still may not be too late to wish for immortality. He flies towards Porunga and Goku gives chase, briefly battling the tyrant. Dende reaches Porunga first, but Frieza hits Goku aside and tries to wish for eternal life from Porunga. However, in his ignorance, he makes the mistake of not making his wish in the Namekian Language. Dende makes Guru and King Kai's wish in Namekian, which Porunga agrees to grant. Enraged, Frieza attempts to kill Dende, but he is sent to Earth in time. Vegeta arrives and briefly sees Goku as a Super Saiyan before he too is sent to Earth along with everyone else on Namek, except for Goku and Frieza. Frieza openly wonders how Dende and Vegeta were alive, since he killed them both personally, and Goku reveals the plan he made with King Kai and Guru, irritating Frieza greatly.

As everyone rejoices on Earth, Frieza tells Goku that Namek will be exploding in a matter of minutes now and berates him for his suicidal decision to stay on Namek. Goku, however, counters that this way he feels much better, now that he can fight Frieza without having to worry about his friends. With Namek crumbling around them, Goku and Frieza prepare for their final round.

Differences from the manga[]

  • In the anime, Goku and Frieza fight as Goku telepathically tells King Kai to not have him be sent to Earth. In the manga they are not fighting when this happens.
  • Bulma pondering on whether to leave Namek on the Capsule Corporation Spaceship without Gohan is exclusive to the anime.
  • Vegeta testing his powers to see if he is truly alive is exclusive to the anime:
  • The anime has a few additional scenes during the scene with Porunga and the others.
    • Frieza battles with Goku briefly as he attempts to reach Porunga.
    • He attempts to kill Dende before he is transported to Earth.
    • Vegeta sees Goku as a Super Saiyan and attempts to attack Frieza before he is transported to Earth.
  • King Kai telling Tien, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu the events that transpired with the wish and Goku choosing to stay behind is exclusive to the anime.


  • Goku is characterized as less selfish in the English dub, where he asks King Kai to alter the wish to leave both him and Frieza on Namek. In the dub, his rationale is that since he and Frieza are already nearing the end of their conflict, it would be a waste to pull out when the latter could heal up and become a threat again. In the Japanese version and the manga, it is implied he wants to settle things with Frieza both to avenge Krillin and to feel the satisfaction of fighting all-out against the tyrant, tying back to his Saiyan heritage. He even warns King Kai that if the latter doesn't allow him to settle things immediately, he'd resent the Kai for the rest of his life.
  • Christopher Sabat takes over from Dale Kelly as the voice of Porunga from this episode onward. Unlike Kelly's take, Sabat's voice for the Namekian Dragon is practically indistinguishable from Shenron's.
