The Freeza series has boosted the
popularity of Dragon Ball Z greatly. It is a crucial
turning point in the Dragon Ball Saga, because it
involves Goku's very first transformation into the
legendary "Super Saiyan"(which comes every
1000 years) with the ability to power up to a golden-haired
strenghtened stage. It also introduces the character
Trunks at the end, as well as explain more story and
plot that occured prior to the start of DragonBall.
Epilouge: events that happened before the
Years ago, Freeza killed Vegeta, the Saiyan king,
and destroyed the Saiyan Planet Vegeta. Then he used
prince Vegeta(King Vegeta's son and the Vegeta we
know and love), Nappa, and Radtizu as mercenary-slaves
to conquer other planets. After the Vegeta Series
only two pure breed Saiyan were left. One was the
Saiyan Prince, Vegeta. The other was Bardock's son,
our main hero, Gokou. After the death of Raditz, Vegeta
learns from the message from Raditz's scouter that
Dragonballs existed. Later, he figured out that in
Namek Dragonballs also existed. After getting beaten
by Gokou, Vegeta retreats to Freeza's planet to recover.
Now, he carries on the new goal of gathering the dragonballs
for himself to be granted the wish of immortality.
He also plans to kill Freeza. Freeza is also in search
of the Namek Dragonballs to become immortal and begins
to terrorize Namek for the dragonballs. Meanwhile,
Bulma learns about the Namek Dragonballs via PoPo,
Kami's assistant. With the hope to gather the dragon
balls to wish their friends killed in the Vegeta Series
back to, Gohan, Klilyn, and Bulma venture off to Namek
on the spaceship that Kami rode on to travel to Earth
years ago. Great battles on Piccolo's home planet
are to take place.
Right after the Vegeta series takes place, Freeza-an
interplanetary conquerer or planets, makes his apperance
on the Planet Namek and begins to collect Dragon Balls.
Gohan, Kuilin, and Bulma all go on a spacecraft to
investigate, while Goku remains in th e Hospitol,
recovering from the wounds from the fight with Vegeta.
The storyline before Freeza Arrives is a long and
complex one, so it may be explained later on.
Anyway, once on Planet Namek.( Planet Namek's residents
all look like Piccolo.)-Vegeta discovers Freeza's(Vegeta
and the rest of the Saiyans are Freeza's sworn enemy)
whereabouts so he goes over to Namek to try to gather
the Namek Dragon Balls as well to wish for immortality.
(The Namek Dragon Balls give an individual 3 wishes
as opposed to 1 wish on earth.). Freeza begins to
conquer Namek, sending out his henchmen, Zarbon and
Daoduiba, to gather the DragonBalls and terrorize
and destroy the Namek Villages. Meanwhile, our heroes
Gohan and Kuilin are having trouble themselves, but
finally meet up with the Namek village elders and
team up with the Nameks to help. They meet Dende,
a very helpful young Namek that serves as a guide
Goku recovers from the hospitol thanks to one of Ubujji's
magical beans, and springs into action with help from
Dr.Brief (Bulma's Father) and his invention. He boards
a training capsule heading to Namek, where he plans
to train on his way there under certain Gravity Forces
several times that of earth. Along the way, he encounters
some tough terrain and eventually ends up in a Gravity
Storm which throws him into G-level 100. He fights
it and eventually becomes strong enough to train in
While in Namek Vegeta, Gohan, Kuilin and Bulma all
face the problem of gathering the DragonBalls. Vegeta
has the upper hand, after he raided Freeza's base
and stole 5 of them. The plot gradually continues...with
the summoning of the Ginew Force, an elite warrior
team composed of Freeza's best henchmen, and they
are taken care of by the combined forces of Vegeta
and Goku-(there leader can switch bodies, and a frog
is thrown in the path of his mind laser, where he
gets stomped afterwards)...until Goku finally reaches
Namek, all trained and ready.
Then, the battle of Freeza finally begins!!! When
they first battle, Freeza reamains in Normal Form.
Then, as the battle progresses both fighters energy
levels increase, and Freeza changes into 4 different
forms during the battle. He begins with 530,000 while
Goku has 550,000 BP. After fighting, Frez a i ncreases
to 700,000 in Form2, then 870, 000 in Form 3. Goku's
max powered-up rises him up to 800,000--being barely
able to confront Freeza Form 3. Freeza ultimetely
transforms into Perfect-Form, with a smooth metallic
look and incredible strength. ( 1,200 ,000 BP!!).
Goku's rage rises, because his good friend Kuilin
has been killed in battle-and he finally recieves
enough power and anger to unleash the Super-Saiya-jin!!!
as he blasts up to a whopping 1,500,000 BP with flowing
gold hair and a bursting energ y field around him.
But it still seems Freeza has another transformation
well sort of. Freeza powers up to 100% he was currently
fighting at only 70%. It seems Freeza has the upper
hand but not for long, the longer Freeza fights at
100% the faster he loses his power. Freeza attacks
Gokou with a Slicing disc but instead he cuts himself.
Freeza is now incredibly weakened, and Goku finishes
him off with a fireball.
Now he has to race against time to escapes just before
the planet explodes because Freeza had use his Death
Ball Attack on planet Namek before he died.Goku's
whereabouts are unknown, and everyone believes that
Goku has died. In the last mili-second Gokou finds
finds the Ginyu's Pods and escapes. Our hero has traveled
to the planet Yardrat to learn the art of teleporting!
The DragonBalls are gathered, everyone who died is
revived and they all return to living a peaceful life.
