Storyline: A Glint of Hope Shines Through in a Crisis! Time to Fight Back, Son Goku!
Frieza and Goku continue their protracted battle with Frieza landing more blows on Goku. While no match for Frieza's raw power, Goku manages to withstand and dodge Frieza's attacks. Goku and Vegeta notice that Frieza is progressively losing stamina and that his power level is dropping. Frieza himself fails to notice this. Vegeta urges Goku to quickly finish Frieza off before he has a chance to recover, or he will step up and do so himself. After Goku and Frieza exchange some sarcastic banter, they power up again and continue their fight. Frieza still has the upper hand, but Goku knows that he only needs to continue for a while longer before Frieza's weakness appears again. After a fully powered Frieza unleashes a barrage of attacks, he quickly becomes tired and starts running out of breath. His attacks no longer hurt Goku. Frieza finally realizes his weakness. Goku explains that Frieza rushed to Earth immediately after achieving the Golden form without giving himself enough time to master it. Frieza mouths a few inaudible words to his subordinate, Sorbet, and agonizes over his failed chance at revenge. Goku tells Frieza to leave Earth, while he still can. To everyone's surprise, a laser beam pierces Goku's chest fired from Sorbet's ray gun. Frieza steps on Goku's chest wound and gloats about his backup strategy to have Goku let his guard down. As Goku screams in pain, Frieza mocks him for being overconfident. According to Frieza, Goku's overconfidence prevents him from being the strongest fighter. Before Frieza can unleash his killing shot on Goku, Vegeta fires at Frieza and announces that it is his turn to fight.
