[edit] Summary

One of Frieza's assistants senses the power of Gohan and Krillin, and sends a reconnaissance party to investigate. The scouts break into the space ship, but Gohan and Krillin beat them easily. Meanwhile, Vegeta is challenged by another of Frieza's henchmen, Cui. But Cui proves no match for the Saiyan Prince.

Vegeta has just arrived on Namek , followed by another space pod that is revealed to be occupied by Cui, who is now under Frieza's orders to kill his rival Vegeta. Frieza has also just found his fourth Dragonball. Zarbon sends two men, Bund and Vug, to investigate the new power level that appeared (Krillin and Gohan). Vug breaks their Namekian spaceship. Krillin and Gohan power up and kill Bund and Vug, respectively, sending them to watery grave. Unfortunately, the ship is still broken, leaving Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma trapped on Namek. Cui, meanwhile, finds Vegeta, who is waiting patiently for him. Having recovered from his injuries on Earth, Vegeta's power level has gone from 18,000 to 24,000! Zarbon's scouter is broken by Vegeta's power. Cui is no match for Vegeta, who destroys him. Frieza and his men discover another Namek village on their scouters and head over to it.

  • Krillin and Gohan vs. Bund and Vug
  • Vegeta vs. Cui

[edit] Trivia

  • Zarbon refers to Vegeta as a "monkey-tailed abomination". However, Vegeta's tail has been permanently cut off at this point. Then again, Zarbon didn't know that.
  • Zarbon says Cui's power level is much higher than Vegeta's. But when Vegeta powers up, Zarbon says that Vegeta is even stronger than him and Dodoria. Logically, Cui, Zarbon, and Dodoria's power levels must be between 18 thousand and 24 thousand. Zarbon's is often said to be 23 thousand, and Dodoria's 21 thousand or 22 thousand, and Cui's around 18 thousand or 19 thousand, both of which are only a little bit higher than Vegeta's.
  • Krillin says "It's Vegeta! It's gotta be!" when he sees Cui's space pod, the second one that arrived.
