In this episode, the world tournament finally begins. But since Vegeta broke the punching machine, they had brought out another one. Then Goten and Trunks are in the exercise room where all junior contestants are. After they talked a little bit, this other boy with blonde hair comes up to Trunx and tells him that he was bragging, "hey wimp, you're going to be my first victim, this is going to be one of the quickest matches". Then Trunks answers back, "you better watch your mouth" ad then everybody looks at him. Then HERCULE comes and everybody starts cheering because he saved the world, NOT. Then the announcer tells everyone that they finally did a re-enactment about the fight, and Hercule gets worried because he thought it was the actual fight, but it wasn't. It was just a few guys in costume and they did the story WAY wrong. But before the junior tournament, Gohan gets a little worried about missing the tournament because he didn't get to try the punch measurer yet, but Videl tells him that they could watch both of them at the final.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • ZTV Intro
      When the mock up of the Cell Games is being shown on video, at the start it shows a picture of waves crashing over rocks with ZTV inside a triangle. This is the intro that TOEI Animation uses at the start of the DBZ movies and probably all their other work.

      For some reason FUNimation made fun of this intro in their dub of this episode.
