  • A cool guy kicks Friza's and King Cold's butt.

    Trunks looked so handsome when he showed up to fight Friza and his dad. Is it me or does Trunks totally reminds me of Leonardo DeCaprio. It must be his hair, his killer blue eyes, his cool attitude, or maybe...his totally rockin buff body *giggles*. He proves that teens can be strong and smart. I also admire the way he keeps his cool during a battle. I would desribe Trunks as a renaissance boy because he is the perfect mixture of brains, brawn, looks, and attitude. And let's not forget his wardrobe, it makes look like a rebel leader of the resistance. I guess I have a weakness for lone wolves.moreless
  • Frieza's back...but not for long.

    I like this episode because it's cool to see Frieza's dad he's cool I would have liked to see him fight more but he got killed quickly and so did Frieza by who by Trunks, it was also funny to see Vegeta in a pink shirt not giving a **** I was alos laughing beccause Vegeta noticed Trunks immense power but didn't know where he came from but it was from his own sperm.moreless
  • The end of Frieza once and for all.

    Frieza was expecting to beat Goku back to earth and have it all to himself to destroy. It doesn't quiet work out that way because the mysterious youth Trunks, reveals he is a Super Saiyan. He transforms and uses his super cool sword to chop all Frieza and King Cold's minions into itty bitty pieces.

    The power of this new Saiyan leaves the rest of the Z fighters a bit shocked and Vegeta baffled that another Saiyian could exist. Frieza unleashes a his Death Ball attack but Trunks simply catches it. He completly embarces Frieza and King Cold by easily defeating both, slicing Frieza in half.

    Plenty of action and excitment with the new Super Saiyan Trunks on the scene. And Frieza is finally gone once and for all.moreless
  • Summary

    This Episode starts out right where we left off on the last episode, with Trunks saying the same thing he did in the ending of the previous one--"So, you must be Frieza." After he threatens to kill Frieza, Frieza orders his men to go out and kill Trunks. They measure his power level and find it to be level 5. But much to their surprise their lesson in Saiyan french fries is about to begin. While on the attack Trunks is able to slice them all down with that pretty impressive butter knife of his. Frieza still remains unimpressed and begins exchanging a few puns and insults with Trunks. Meanwhile, the Z warriors, who are still out of viewing range, cannot figure out who this new power could be. After listening to Trunks and Frieza saying how one could destroy the other, we finally see one take action. Trunks tells Frieza that he is a Super Saiyan and Frieza just laughs his metal ass off(To further show Frieza what a conceited idiot he is). Trunks transforms into the Super Saiyan he claimed he was, and Frieza's face is bestowed with fear once more and his father remains hardly impressed. Frieza refusing to be beaten by another saiyan launches a beam at Trunks which causes an explosion. At this time the Z warriors cannot believe it, they think that this person is Goku but Vegeta thinks that the power level is too high to be Goku! Trunks is still standing after Frieza's first blast, and after another insult Frieza lays down another card--He gives Trunks his most powerful blast, and Trunks is able to cancle it out by dividing it into several small beams. Frieza's final attempt at defeating Trunks is that BIG deathball that comes out of that tiny finger of his. Again Trunks is able to stop it and as he holds it up in the air, Frieza makes it explode. It looks like Trunks is destroyed but up on a cliff he shouts at Frieza and sends a blast down. King Cold and Frieza fly in the air to dodge the attack and Trunks jumps down screaming with his sword in his hands, and then slices right through Frieza! And that creates such a frustrating way to end the episode heh.(Frieza probably still thinks he is the strongest even as he sees the image of Trunks splitting in two)

    What you didn't see: The part when Trunks cut up all of Frieza's men, he left one alive. As this guys armor came off in pieces you seen him back up to Frieza and get killed. In the unedited version you can see Frieza's hand through that poor chap's abdomen and watch him pull it out! Also there were some pretty weird dialogue changes like in the cut version King Kai said something like "Beat him up kid" or something I forget, but in the uncut version he says "Kick his butt". My god do they think that if we see the word "butt" on tv all the American viewers will go on a killing spree or be scared for life holding our knees in the corner? They also left out Vegeta telling Bulma to ShutUp(As if we never hear our parents say that to us when we tell them we love them ;_;). And also when Frieza was sliced by Trunks, you only saw him staring at trunks and slightly sliding apart, but in the uncut you can see him actually split into two parts.

    The Good and Bad: I would have to say that the music is ok at some parts, and when Trunks is up on the cliff..the music Funimation put in is fairly descent. Trunks voice is probably the best one there and King Cold's snobby attitude fits who he was pretty well (The father of a snotty genderless brat ^_^). There are quite a few bad parts though, when Trunks yelled at Frieza from on top of the cliff, it just didn't seem like he actually..well yelled it! He might as well just said it in a Ben Stein tone! Ok well it wasn't that bad :b

    The Episode Flaws: There was only 1 flaw I could pick out in the Episode that exists in American and Japanese. When Frieza got cut half, through his eyes it looked like trunks was split in two. When in reality your eyes do not only view what the other eye doesn't, they both view the same thing. So if he got cut into two, he would of seen two Trunks, not Trunks splitting into two.

    Final word: I actually enjoyed this episode more then my above complaints show. This episode had a lot more action then yesterday's episode and slighty different/lil better music. It was nice to know that all the American viewers could finally see that SHEman (Frieza) die once again.moreless
  • NOt my fav story line

    The only reason this episode even gets this rating is because of the coolness of Trunks other wise all the talk the filler and unnecesary fights with freeza`s henchman was stupid!!!! The other part of this episode that was bad was the slow action and the quick death of freeza. He didnt just come back to bore us!!!! DBZ is going downhill after explosion of anger...

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Cut Scenes:

      - Yamcha and Vegeta make various remarks about Bulma which might be considered sexist.
      - King Cold dies after Trunks' first attack on him, as opposed to remaining alive until Trunks attacks him once more.

    • Inconsistency: In the two episodes before, you can see that when Frieza blinks, the eyelid on his mechanical side is blackish-blue. But during the fight with Trunks both of his eyelids are the same off-white color.

    • Goof: In this episode, after all the Z-fighters climb up the side of the mountain and get to the top, Vegetas' pink shirt is white for a split second.

    • Goof: In the shot of Trunks, before he slices Frieza apart, his eyes are brown, when they should be green since he transformed into his Super Saiyan form.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Bulma: Hey, maybe it would help us relax a little if we all sing a song!
      Vegeta: Shut up! You haven't had one useful thing to say since you got here! Now you stay in the back and keep quiet, woman! I don't have time for your stupidity right now!
      Bulma: Wha, stupid?
      Yamcha: Take that back, Bulma isn't stupid.
      Bulma: So you think I'm smart?
      Yamcha: Well, I guess you're as smart as you can be, being a girl and all.

    • Frieza: Well, you certainly are an arrogant little thing. And maybe in whatever hole you crawled out of, you're pretty tough. But you're no match for me.

    • King Cold: Well done, Frieza. It only took you four tries to destroy that little boy...

    • (holding up Frieza's planet destroying Death Ball in one hand)
      Trunks: 'scuse me (smirks) ...Is this yours?

    • [Trunks just transformed into a Super Saiyan leaving Frieza shaking in terror]
      Frieza: It's those eyes... They... have the same... eyes!"
      (Trunks notices his reaction and smiles.)
      Trunks: Was it something I said?

    • Frieza: Let me give you a piece of advice, he who acquires his skills quickly, is he who is the first to perish.
      Trunks: Thanks for the tip.
      Frieza: Why you...
      Trunks: Now I've got one for you Frieza, know your enemy, you've already made some pretty big assumptions about me, and that's a mistake that's going to cost you dearly.
      Frieza: Why you insolent brat, you should really learn to control your tongue.
      Trunks: Your about to fight a real Super Saiyan, and I'm not talking about Goku.

    • Frieza: Let me give you a piece of advice, he who acquires his skills quickly, is he who is the first to perish.
      Trunks: Thanks for the tip.
      Frieza: Why you...
      Trunks: Now I've got one for you Frieza, know your enemy, you've already made some pretty big assumptions about me, and that's a mistake that's going to cost you dearly.
      Frieza: Why you insolent brat, you should really learn to control your tounge.

    • King Cold: Just hurry up and destroy him already, we haven't got all day.
      Frieza: Father, have some patience, I'm just trying to have a little fun if you don't mind.
      Trunks: He's right though, you really don't have all day, more like five minutes.
      Frieza: That's too bad, and here I made dinner plans.
      Trunks: So I've heard, well I'm canceling your date with Goku.
      King Cold: What's a Goku?
      Frieza: (sideways) Father I know you're bored but please try to keep up!

    • King Cold: It is my theory that without this sword you would not have defeated my son so easily. What do you think?
      Trunks: Believe whatever you want to believe.
      King Cold: Hah! Alright then I will! I say, that without this sword you're nothing! That's what I believe!

    • (King Cold's final plea before he is blasted into oblivion)
      King Cold: W-Wait... only my son was evil, I just crave peace!

    • Trunks: And now, you two are going down.
      King Cold
      : Ha-ha-ha-ha! One thing is certain. If nothing else, I'd say this little creature is quite the comedian.
      : He is at that.
