After Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma
arrive on Namek, they discover that evil forces are already at work on Namek
looking for the Dragon Balls also. They search high and low for dragon balls,
but usually come up empty handed. Soon Vegeta arrives on Namek as well and
pursues the dragon balls too. Vegeta clashes with Frieza's forces time and time
again, as Gohan and Krillin avoid anyone they come across. Eventually they meet
some of the Nameks and head to see Guru, the elder Namek, who opens up their
hidden power. During the mad hunt for the dragon balls, Vegeta battles and kills
Zarbon, Dodoria, and Cooey, three of Frieza's strongest minions. Vegeta steals
the dragon balls from Frieza and is only missing one, the one Gohan found. To
beat Frieza, Krillin, Gohan, and Vegeta team up against the great evil.
Frieza is infuriated by Vegeta's insolence, and calls for the Ginyu force, his
super squadron of dancing morons. Once the Ginyu Force arrives they catch up
with Vegeta and the others and prepare to take the dragon balls. Captain Ginyu
takes the balls back to Frieza while the others decide who gets to kill Krillin,
Vegeta, and Gohan. Guldo, the frog-looking weakling of the bunch, goes first
against Gohan and Krillin. The fight seems to be going in Gohan's favor when
Guldo catches them off guard and it looks like they could be done for. Vegeta,
however, still needs them, so he kills Guldo and saves Gohan and Krillin.
Recoome steps up next to fight. He pretty much beats the hell out of all 3 of
them. He beats up Vegeta, then Krillin, and finally Gohan. Just when it looks
like Gohan is done in, here comes Goku.
Goku finally shows up, stronger than ever after training in 100 times earth
gravity. He stops Recoome with one blow, then Burter and Jeice burst into action
to defeat this new threat. He stops them pretty easily and Jeice retreats to
summon Captain Ginyu to help. The captain shows up to settle things. After he
sees how strong Goku really is, Ginyu pulls a special attack that switches their
bodies. Goku is stuck in Ginyu's body, as the Captain flies off with Jeice to
fool Gohan and Krillin. Gohan and Krillin fight Ginyu, and when Vegeta joins in
it turns into a massacre. Vegeta kills the unconscious Burter, and Recoome. Then
while Gohan and Krillin fight Ginyu, Vegeta chases down and kills Jeice. With
that finished, Vegeta beats on Ginyu for a while. Ginyu gets ready to take
Vegeta's body, but Goku jumps in the way at the last minute to get his body
back. Then when Ginyu tries again, Goku throws a frog in the path of the beam.
With Ginyu in a frog's body, the battle with the Ginyus is finally done. The new
team of Goku, Vegeta, Gohan and Krillin go to Frieza's ship to heal and prepare
for Frieza's eminent arrival. Gohan and Krillin wait for Vegeta to fall asleep
and go to make their wish with the dragon balls. They bring Piccolo back to
life, and transport him to Namek to help fight Frieza. But before they can get
their 3rd wish Vegeta wakes up and shows up on the scene. Before Vegeta can get
his wish granted, Guru dies and the dragon balls become useless. It's about this
time that Frieza arrives and he's not in a good mood.
After Vegeta and the guys fight Frieza for a little bit, Piccolo merges with the
fallen Namek warrior Nail, and arrives on the scene to help. Frieza goes into
his second form and spears Krillin. Dende however heals Krillin before he dies.
Gohan steps up to fight Frieza and gets beat pretty bad, but Dende heals him
too. Piccolo puts up the best fight against Frieza. Frieza goes into his third
form and Piccolo can barely handle the new battle mate. By the time Frieza
reaches his fourth form Piccolo is pretty outmatched. Before Frieza goes to 4th
form, Vegeta talks Krillin into blasting him and then getting Dende to heal him
to massively buildup his power. Soon after Frieza's fourth form, he kills little
Dende, after seeing the tiny Namek's ability to heal the others. The fighters
put up a pretty useless fight against the super-powerful Frieza. Not even Vegeta
can touch him.
Goku shows up right as Frieza kills Vegeta, and it looks like Goku has the upper
hand for a while. But Frieza proves too much for even Goku to handle. Even after
hitting him with a high powered Spirit Bomb attack Frieza still keeps coming.
But then Frieza kills Krillin. Goku goes into a terrible rage at this latest
atrocity by the evil warlord. Goku starts teeming with new power and he achieves
the form of Super Saiyan. A high powered, blonde haired, blue eyes fighting
machine. The fight starts turning against Frieza so to ensure his victory he
blasts Namek's core, setting the planet to explode in mere moments. Goku and
Frieza fight for a good long time until Frieza makes a mistake and ends up
sliced up. Goku gives Frieza a small amount of energy so he can survive the
blast of the planet's explosion, but Frieza uses this energy to attack Goku. The
super saiyan goes ahead and finishes the job, killing Frieza.
After the Nameks and everyone else on the planet, except Goku and Frieza, are
wished to the Planet Earth, the heroes use the dragon balls to wish everyone
back to life. Goku refuses to come back to Earth because he is not dead and he
is training with his new power. Everything returns to something resembling
normal and the Nameks go to their home on New Namek.
