Episode 211 "Pay To Win "

The Summary

After surviving the first two levels of Babidi's ship and having Dabura's full power ready to be released, can Gohan win his battle to allow them to move on?

Lets find out...

The episode starts off with the final match of the tournament between Number 18 and Hercule. At first, Hercule is scared as %$&@ of being beaten by a woman and being embarrassed in front of his loyal fans. Instead, however, he decides to act cool and tough, but in actuality, he's still a chicken.

Hercule knows that she'd beat him in an instant, so he starts to think of a way out of his predicament. Without any time to think, though, Number 18 grabs him into a brutal headlock. He thinks it's all over and even begs for his life, but Number 18 has different plans.

Her proposed plan is for her to intentionally lose the fight, have him give her the ten million zeni (currency), and have him give her an extra ten million from his own pocket. He agrees, seeing no other way out of it without ruining his reputation.

Oh boy...

The (fight)-wink-wink begins with Hercule throwing his most powerful punches. Obviously he's trying his best, but it doesn't harm Number 18 the least bit. She just pretends to be in severe pain, flying all over the ring from his beating.

Some non-important talk between the two fighters goes on, but eventually the fight comes to an end.

Number 18 tells him to attack her with his most powerful attack that will end the fight. Hercule does his Megaton punch move, and the android doesn't move a muscle when he hits her square in the face. About fifteen seconds later, though, she flies out of the ring, and the crowd is amazed. No one understands how she could've stood there and with delay, be thrown back.

Hercule claims that he has been perfecting that technique for ten years. {I spilled my drink all over me}

After he wins, he shows off again with the crowd's full support. Number 18 tells him that she'll see him tomorrow for the money or kill him if he doesn't pay.
We are now taken back to Trunks and Goten who are quite upset that they were disqualified from the tournament. After some whining and yelling, Goten spots Videl flying back to the tournament. They fly over to her and she takes some time to explain the situation to Trunks and Goten...

After having heard that an evil sorcerer was responsible, they jump for joy because they now have the chance to save the world. Immediately, they leave for Babidi's ship leaving Videl in a daze.

"I don't want to miss it, I don't want to miss it, I don't want to miss it, LET'S GO!-Goten

Back in Babidi's spaceship...

Goku, Gohan Vegeta, and the Supreme Kai are waiting for the next fighter to come out of the door. The group discusses how Gohan isn't as strong as he used to be when he fought Cell.

The Kai is amazed that these Saiyans are not even at their full power. He doesn't understand how people from this lower world could have so much power and him not knowing.

Suddenly, Dabura shows up in the third level doorway. The Supreme Kai is left without words. He doesn't know why Babidi would send his strongest fighter for the third level. He highly doubts that Gohan will be able to handle his power.


Gohan isn't satisfied with the small fighting area, but Dabura doesn't care. Unfortunately, Babidi agrees with Gohan and changes the place to a rural mountainous region better suited for fighting.

Without shilly-shallying, Gohan begins fighting without turning into a super saiyan. The fight barely begins but then, for some reason, FUNi chose to interrupt the beginning punch from Gohan.

I really was disappointed at this. There was no need for the pause and when it returned, it showed Goten and Trunks. Why?


The fight starts, and Dabura starts to whip Gohan all over. He even sends a blue energy attack at Gohan's body that he barely dodges. Thank goodness, because it ends up slicing off the mountaintop behind him.

Soon, Gohan realizes that he needs to turn super saiyan, so sure enough he does.

The real fight is about to begin.

Stay tuned...

The Review


Not something I want to brag about today. The scenes were sort of so-so. The majority of the episode took place at the tournament so we didn't really have a chance to see it at its best. However, even when the fight between Dabura and Gohan began, there still was no change. Dabura may have looked quite powerful, but what about Gohan? He is, after all, supposed to be one of, if not the most powerful being on Earth.

It sure didn't seem like it. :(


Ok. Let's get one thing straight. Lately, the music has been below average, sometimes worse, and today was no exception. I don't think music is as an important aspect to the show as, lets say: animation or plot. What do you think?

(Poll)-Do you think the music of Dragonball Z has become less recognizable lately?

a. Yes

b. No

c. Music?

d. It's fine.


Well, I thought that the fight was supposed to start today, but I guess I was wrong. (I often make that mistake.) So, instead of a killer, fast-paced show, we got another "filler" episode that preludes what is to come.

In terms of how good it was, it wasn't.

The bland speeches by Hercule and Number 18 were just nauseating. C'mon! Is that the best translation that can be done? I thought that the scenes at the ship were a little improvement over the tournament but just by a hair. The Supreme Kai hasn't said much, and the rest of them haven't done much except wait a lot. Blah.


No plot whatsoever. The exception to that sentence is the beginning of the fight on Babidi's ship. Even that, however, is not that great. There wasn't a big introduction of drama like there was in the Cell Games or the fight between Frieza and Goku. It just started, and quite frankly, I thought it sucked.

The Existence's Bottom Line: Not a whole lot of anything.

The Existence gives today's episode:
