  • Password Is Porunga - A defeated Nail reveals to Frieza his subtle plot, to stall him long enough for the Earthlings to summon Porunga, the Namekian Dragon! Finding his confidence in the Ginyu Force misguided, a frustrated Frieza races to stop Krillin and Gohan from executing their wishes. But with Dende revealing the password, can Frieza stop the Earthlings?
  • Piccolo's Return - Gohan and Krillin summon Porunga, the Namekian Dragon, to make their wishes. But to their disappointment they discover only one person can be returned for each wish. Without sufficient wishes to return all four Krillin and Gohan resort to the next best thing – restore Piccolo, thereby reinstating Kamesic and the Dragon Balls on Earth! But an enraged Vegeta arrives before the last wish is cast. Will his arrival ruin their plans?
  • The Fusion - Frieza is furious when he discovers the Namekian Dragon Balls are gone, and launches into battle with Vegeta. Elsewhere, with Porunga's help, Piccolo arrives on the planet Namek only to discover a badly injured Nail. Even though Nail can't continue to fight in his own body, he can continue to fight by combining with Piccolo in a Namekian fusion technique! Will Piccolo, now united with Nail, arrive on the battlefield in time to stop Frieza's diabolical plans to destroy all the inhabitants of Namek?
