"We Are the Five Warriors" (突撃！われら５人の戦士 Totsugeki! Warera Gonin no Senshi, lit. "Assault! We are the Five Warriors") is the second episode of the Fortuneteller Baba Saga and the seventieth episode in the Dragon Ball series. This episode first aired in Japan on July 15, 1987. Its original American airdate was November 15, 2002.
The battle begins, Goku and his friends vs. Fortuneteller Baba's fiendish minions. The prize: the location of the last Dragon Ball. Baba explains the rules, that a fighter loses if they fall into the lake surrounding the stage or they give up.
First up: Krillin, who must face-off against a warrior with a real bite, Fangs the Vampire. Krillin underestimates his enemy and ends up at a disadvantage. After having trouble keeping pace with Fangs in his bat form, Fangs sneaks up behind him, grabbing him in and sucking blood from his head. This causes Krillin to lose a lot of blood, whereby he gets weary and is unable to fight at his best, allowing Fangs to defeat him quite easily by using his Muay Thai skills to knocks him off of the stage. Thanks to the Ghost Usher, Krillin is given a couple pints of blood and some bandages to heal him up.
Goku and his friends discuss their plan and decide that for the next match Upa and Puar should fight together which Baba allows because of their size and age. Despite not having any real skill in battle, the two use a series of anti-vampire attacks with Upa exposing Fangs to garlic breath and standing in the form of a christian cross while Puar transforms into a hedgehog to avoid Fangs deadly bite. This results in Fang's defeat when Puar transforms into a giant hand and slaps Fangs into the lake when he attempts to flee.
Yamcha next steps onto the stage to fight his next opponent and asks Baba where he is. Baba says he is already there with him causing Yamcha to believe that his opponent is a bug but soon finds out he must face a hard-to-see opponent, See-Through the Invisible Man. He gets punched around a while while Yamcha hits nothing but the air but then Krillin has an idea and asks Goku to quickly bring Master Roshi and Bulma to them.
