|With Piccolo, Chau-Zu, Tien, and Yamcha dead, Bulma, Gohan and Kuririn begin a journey to Namek to find the Dragonballs and wish their friends back. (Goku is too injured at this time to go himself) They fly their way towards Namek, meeting shape shifting creatures, mirror ships, and other hazards. Vegita during this time returns to Furiza's base and rejuvinates himself back to full health, and zips his way towards Namek to wish for immortality. Kuririn and Gohan finally reach the planet, only to find that Furiza has already collected five of the seven balls. At this time Goku has recovered, and he uses a special ship that is capable of raising gravity up to 100x Earth's. His power increases exponentially under the intense force. Seeing that he is obviously overpowered by Furiza and his men, Kuririn goes to the Senior Elder Namek, Guru, for assistance. Guru awakens Kuririn's hidden power, and gives him the Dragonball that he had created. He warns Kuririn that once he dies the Dragonballs will disappear, and that his time was near.
In the mean time Vegita has collected a ball himself, and he hides it so that it is out of harm's way. He then battles Zaabon, who almost destroys him. Furiza has Vegita rejuvinated so that he could reveal the location of the other two Dragonballs. He manages to escape and steal the five balls that Furiza has collected. Greatly angered, Furiza sends Zaabon to find Vegita and bring back the orange spheres. Both Vegita and Zaabon spot Kuririn returning with Guru's ball, and take up chase. Zaabon and Vegita battle once again, this time Vegita coming out as the victor. Kuririn gives up the ball without a fight, as he knows he does not stand a chance against the more powerful Saiya-jin. Thinking he has all seven balls, Vegita goes to fetch the one he hid. However, Gohan manages to find the last one, and returns to Kuririn and Bulma with the ball in his hands.
Furiza, now extremely angry that he does not have the balls in his possesion, orders that the Ginyu Force be summoned. Kuririn and Gohan zoom towards Guru, leaving the ball in the care of Bulma, so that Gohan's powers could be awakened. Vegita, finding out that Gohan has the last ball, takes off in pursuit of him. Kuririn, Gohan, and Vegita all reach Guru's house at about the same time, although Gohan has a good enough lead so that he could get the power-up from Guru. Sensing that the Ginyu force had landed, Vegita manages to make a pact with the Gohan and Kuririn. All three race to Bulma's hiding place to retrieve the last dragonball, afterwards they rush to where the other five were hidden. Unfortunately, the Ginyu force beats them to the spot, and they use their superior powers to get the other two balls from Kuririn, Gohan, and Vegita. Commander Ginyu returns the dragonballs to Furiza.
The rest of the Ginyu force use a sophisticated game to find out who will fight first. (Rock, paper, scissors :P) It is determined that Gerudo will be the first to go, and he faces off against Kuririn and Gohan. By freezing time and using other various tricks, Gerudo gets the upper hand on the fight. At the last moment, however, Vegita sends a blast of energy and decapitates Gerudo. During this time, the Dragonballs reach Furiza. He is unable to summon the dragon, and races to Guru's house to find out what the magic words are. Ginyu guards the Dragonballs, which are buried next to Furiza's ship. Rikum is the next to do battle, and beats Vegita to a bloody pulp. Kuririn is taken out with a kick in the head, leaving only Gohan to fight. Gohan manages to do some damage to Rikum, but he gets roughed up as well.
Just as things are looking their worst, Goku finally arrives in his ship. He gives Sensu beans to Kuririn, Gohan, and Vegita, and knocks out Rikum in one punch. Jese and Burter begin to attack Goku, but they prove no match for him. Burter is knocked out as well, and Jese flys to Commander Ginyu to get help. Ginyu arrives on the scene, but he is also overpowered by Goku. In the meantime, Vegita abandons the fight to find the Dragonballs. Kuririn and Gohan also depart for the same destination, hoping they will beat Vegita to them. Seeing that he will be defeated, Ginyu switches bodies with Goku. Ginyu uses his new body to return to Furiza's ship. Now in the damaged, less powerful body of Ginyu, Goku chases the rest as fast as he can. Vegita reaches the ship first, but is unable to locate the Dragonballs. Figuring that Gohan and Kuririn would use the Dragonball scouter to locate them, he hides and waits. At this time Guru senses Furiza's approach, and sends Dende to tell Kuririn and Gohan the words needed to summon the Dragon. Furiza arrives at Guru's house, but as expected they refuse to tell him the magic words. Neil, Guru's bodyguard, faces off against Furiza. Even though he is currently the most powerful of the Nameks, Furiza easily defeats him with one hand. Neil tells Furiza that Dende knows the words, and that he was just stalling for time. Furiza races back to his ship, neglecting to kill off Neil.
Kuririn and Gohan use the scouter to find where the Dragonballs are buried, but they are also unable to summon the Dragon. Ginyu gets to the ship, still in Goku's body, followed by the real Goku. Goku tells Kuririn and Gohan what happened, and they attack Ginyu. Still not used to his new body, Ginyu has a tough time with the earthlings. Vegita joins in and badly messes up Ginyu. (and Goku's body) Once again outmatched, Ginyu tries his change trick again, this time on Vegita. However, Goku flies into the beam and is restored to his old body. Ginyu tries again to get Vegita's body, but Goku throws a frog into the beam. Ginyu becomes trapped in the body of a frog :)
Vegita offers to help Goku, who's body is now badly damaged. Goku is placed in a Rejuvination pod, which can restore him to full health in 45 minutes. Tired from his countless battles on Namek, Vegita takes a short nap. During Vegita's sleep Kuririn and Gohan meet up with Dende. Dende summons the dragon, and their first wish is to bring Piccolo back to life. Their second wish is to warp Piccolo to Namek so that he could assist in the battle. At this time Vegita wakes up, and he realizes that they had summoned the dragon without him. He rushes over and demands they grant him immortality, but just before the words could be uttered, the Senior Elder dies. The dragonballs lose their power, and Vegita's wish is not granted. Just when Vegita thinks things can not possibly get worse, Furiza arrives at the scene.
Although Piccolo has now warped to the surface of Namek, he is no where near the battlefield. Sensing that Gohan was in danger, Piccolo races to him. However, he doesn't go too far before he discovers the battered Neil. Neil offers to merge with Piccolo so that his power would increase several times over, but Piccolo is reluctant. Seeing that there was no other way to beat Furiza, Piccolo absorbs the weak Ki of Neil. Meanwhile, Vegita and Furiza begin to battle, proving to be equals at this point. Knowing that he would need more power to win, Furiza transforms into a large, demon like beast. His speed and power increase dramatically, and his new form is much larger then before. Now fearing for his life, Vegita backs off from Furiza. Using his horns, Furiza rushes Kuririn and stabs him in the gut, rendering the bald hero unconscious and nearly dead.
Since Vegita fears Furiza, only Gohan is left to do battle. Enraged by what looked like to be Kuririn's death, Gohan manages to connect a few attacks on Furiza. Now angered, Furiza throws Gohan around, and knocks him out as well. However, unknown to Furiza, Dende has the power to heal, and restores Kuririn to full power. Using a Kienzan, Kuririn manages to catch Furiza off-guard and cut off his tail. To give Dende time to heal Gohan, Kuririn leads Furiza on a goose chase.
Now about to move in for the kill, Furiza is confronted by the now fully healed Gohan. But just as they were to begin the battle, Piccolo arrives! He boldly states that he will take on Furiza by himself. Now a "Super Namek," Piccolo proves to Furiza that he is not only his equal but is fact a superior fighter. With his back to the wall, Furiza decides that his 2nd form would not be enough to defeat Piccolo. He announces that he can transform two more times, and proceeds to his 3rd form (He looks very similar to the Queen from the movie Aliens).
Piccolo resumes the battle after the transformation, but finds 3rd form Furiza to be much faster and much more powerful. Seeing Piccolo being blasted repeatedly pushes Gohan over the edge, and he manages to land a few key blows. Once again Furiza feels he is being outmatched. He says that they were going to be very lucky to see his final form, as he never had to use it before. During the lengthy transformation process, Vegita coerces Kuririn into blasting a hole through his torso. Vegita believes that the boost in strength a Saiya-jin gets after being healed near death will be enough to change him into a Super Saiya-jin. Unwilling to rejuvinate one who had killed so many of his people, Dende flies over to the badly injured Piccolo and revives him. Flying over to the young Namek, Kuririn and Gohan convince Dende that the only way to win the battle would be to heal Vegita.
Now fully recovered, Vegita gives Dende a swift hit for not healing him sooner. Furiza finally changes into his 4th form, and his first order of business is killing Dende. With no one left to heal, Furiza knows that the odds are in his favor. Vegita goes head to head with the now small and round looking creature, but finds that even with his new power that he is simply a toy. Furiza counters all of his attacks with ease, and proceeds to beat him to a pulp while Piccolo and the other helplessly watch. Just as Furiza is about to adminster the final blow, Goku arrives fully recharged from the rejuvination pod. Vegita mocks Furiza, and is shot through the heart by the angered villain. Before he dies, he tells Goku that Furiza must be destroyed by a Saiya-jin, as Vegita's pride took a big blow in his defeat. Touched by Vegita's courage and honor, Goku gives him a decent burial at the battlefield.
Furiza and Goku begin the long battle, with neither side getting the immediate upper hand. Using an energy trap, Furiza manages to paralyze Goku within a ball of energy. Goku survives the onslaught he receives in paralysis, and there is a slight pause in the action. Furiza announces that he can defeat Goku without using his hands, and does manage to keep Goku busy even with the handicap. However, Furiza underestimated his power, and is forced to use his arms to defend himself.
Meanwhile, Captain Ginyu, trapped in the body of a frog, has gotten Bulma to place a device on him that would allow him to speak. Yelling "CHANGE," Ginyu takes Bulma's body and turns the confused girl into a frog. Wanting to see how his master was doing, Ginyu races in a speeder to the battlegrounds (With Bulma hanging on for dear life). Seeing that Goku was equal to him at this level, Furiza powers up to 50% and begins to wallop the Saiya-jin. Ginyu, in Bulma's body, attempts his change technique on Piccolo, but Bulma leaps in front of the blast. Now back in his frog form, Ginyu tries his best to avoid getting killed by Furiza and Goku's stray blasts.
Goku, getting messed up pretty badly, powers up using the Kaio Ken technique with a factor of 20. But even with this extra surge Goku is no match for Furiza at half power. With no other options left, he begins the lengthy process of gathering a Genki-Dama. Needing a few minutes to charge it up, Piccolo launches a suicide attack on Furiza to distract him. Even with the occaisional help from Gohan and Kuririn, Piccolo gets sorely beaten by the much stronger opponent. With Piccolo down, Furiza turns his glance to Goku. Since the Genki-Dama was gathering very high up in the sky, Furiza had no idea what the heck our hero was doing holding his arms straight up.
As these events take place on Namek, Tien, Chaozu, and Yamcha are now confronted by the Ginyu force (except the captain of course) on Kai's planet. Challenging them to a battle, the two groups fight it out. Realizing that the Ginyu were no match for them, they use their various techniques to send each down to hell.
Even after a few attacks by Furiza (who thinks Goku is mocking him), Goku maintains his pose. As the giant ball of energy is completed, Furiza gets fed up with Goku's attitude. He begins to gather energy to destroy Namek, but then notices the tremendous Genki-Dama directly above his head. Goku sends the ball of death onto Furiza, causing a huge explosion that scars the planet. After the dust settles, Piccolo, Gohan, Kuririn, and Goku all gather on a small island. Thinking they have finally beaten Furiza, they half-heartedly celebrate. However, looking up at a tall pillar of rock, Kuririn sees that Furiza is still very much alive. Firing a blast at Goku, Piccolo jumps in front of it and takes a hole in the chest. Not stopping there, Furiza uses his powers to lift Kuririn into the air and blow him to pieces. Completely enraged by his best friend's death, Goku's hair begins to turn blond and his eyes begin to turn green. Goku has finally become a Super Saiya-jin.
Informing Gohan that Piccolo is not dead, he orders him to return to the ship with the unconscious Namek. Not wanting to let anyone get away, Furiza moves to strike Gohan, but is halted when Goku grabs onto his hand and crushes it. Trying a variety of attacks, Furiza is unable to damage Goku in any way. As nothing else seems to work, Furiza gathers another Planet destroying energy ball, which Goku is unable to deflect. The ball creates a huge hole in the planet that goes all the way to its core. Furiza says the planet will be completely destroyed in 5 minutes, and that only he can live in outer space.
With Piccolo resurrected, Kami has also risen from the dead. Quickly gathering the Dragonballs, Goku asks him to make a wish to bring everyone that Furiza had killed back to life. The Senior Elder was brought back to life with all the others, and with him returned to the mortal plain, the Namek balls regained their power. Porunga, the Dragon of Namek, still had one wish remaining, and Dende is ordered by the Elder to go make it. Goku asks that he grant a wish to transport everyone except Furiza and himself from Namek to Earth (Even Vegita). Dende yells out the request, and Furiza is left alone with Goku to do battle. With his job done, the Senior Elder gives the power of the Dragonballs to another Namek, and passes away peacefully.
Now able to fight to the death, Furiza charges up to full power. Goku has a little trouble with Furiza, but not much. Feeling that he is superior to the purple villain, Goku says that there is no point in continuing the match as he will win it anyway. Greatly insulted by this remark, Furiza forms a Kienzan and hurls it at Goku who is now slowly flying away. It barely misses him, and Goku is forced to resume the fight. Chased around by the thin disk, Goku still manages to keep clear of it. Frustrated, Furiza forms ANOTHER Kienzan, and sends it to follow Goku as well. Using clever tactics, Goku gets Furiza to slice himself in half with his own technique. Now almost dead, Furiza begs Goku for help. Unable to leave Furiza to die, he gives him a bit of his Ki so that he may leave the planet before it explodes. Furiza has other plans though, and uses Goku's gift to make one final attack. Angered by Furiza's stubborness, Goku vaporizes the remaining part of his body.
With Namek about to destroy itself any second, Goku frantically rushes to Furiza's ship in a hope to start it. Unable to locate the controls, the ship plunges into a lava-filled ravine. With no alternatives, Goku screams "SHIIIIIIIIIIT!" Namek is blown away into dust, and Goku's whereabouts are unknown.
With the Namek balls now on Earth, Tenshinhan, Chaozu, and Yamcha are all wished back to life. They try to bring Goku back to life, but Porunga informs them that Goku is not dead, and does not wish to return to Earth yet. Baffled, Goku's friends continue and use the balls to locate another habitable planet for the Nameks. New Namek is established, and the former inhabitants of Old Namek are teleported there. Yet the wait for Goku continues with no further contact from our hero...
