Now Prillin said ” I am coming go next. Send someone strong”. Gohan said ” I will fight him. Everyone else has fixed fights” Prillin and Gohan started fighting. Prillin was nothing like Krillin. He was more aggressive and more skilled. Gohan may have been stronger before but he didn’t train after the Buu attack. He was less skillful evenif his power was greater. There was a marginal difference since the sealing drugs were working. Prillin attacked Gohan from every direction. A kick, punch and energy black. Due to his small stature he was fast and was able to dodge all of Gohan’s attacks. But Gohan didn’t give up. He knew what was at stake. He gave it his all. He screamed in anger as he wasnt able to land even a single punch. For a brief moment his power increased. Everyone was shocked. The parallel versions were confused. They thought on how Gohan managed to increase his power even after he was under the effects of the drugs. This small increase was enough to give Gohan the upper edge and he KOed Prillin in one hit. He once hit him and said “This was for sacrificing your family, you scum”.
Next bout was Kami vs Piccolo. Both removed their outfits. Both of them well down and created a “thud” indicating how heavy they were. Piccolo said “It seems you have my mind atleast” Kami replied “I was going to say the same thing. Let’s see what else YOU have” Both flew towards each others. Their fists connected creating a shock wave. Piccolo said “You have good power”. Kami said “Thank you. Now see my speed”. He teleported behind him but Piccolo parried the attack. Both smiled. Their power and speed were the same. There wasnt much difference. Both were throwing punches and shooting energy blasts. Some were countered by the other, some weren’t. Finally Piccolo said “Time to end this” and he stood in a very familiar stance and he raised his hands and started raising his ki. Kami was shocked. Piccolo’s power was increasing. Kakarotto exclaimed ” How is this possible? How did you all manage to do this? “. Piccolo said with a smirk “A magician never reveals his secrets” In his mind he remembered the excruciating pain of ripping off his arms and fingers so that he could regenerate them back and in doing so increase his metabolism. Suddenly there was a huge energy blast. Piccolo wasn’t able to completely dodge it. His arm was blasted off. Kami laughed and said “Hahahaha!! Now you are crippled. Raise your energy more but you cant fight with a single arm” Piccolo was astonished initially and then smiled “Interesting”. He then screamed and regenerated his arm. Kami was staggered by this. He asked with a little stutter “H.. Ho.. How.. were you abb.. Able to do t.. t… thaaa… that?” “I can regenerate my body parts thanks to my Namekian origins” said Piccolo. “Damn you” screamed Kami. He then said “Ka.. Me.. Ha.. Me.. Haaaaa” and release a purple coloured beam. Piccolo dodged it. Everyone was astonished. “How can he do that?” asked Gohan. “He must have practiced it” said Piccolo. He then started firing energy balls at him. Kami tried blocking but to his amazement only a few of them hit him. When he looked around him he realised the grave error on his part. There were energy balls around him. “This are guided energy blasts. They will come at you together at once. You cant dodge them al.. “. Suddenly Kami screamed “SOLAR FLARE”. There was a blinding light. No one could see anything. Kami then said “I cant regenerate but I can learn techniques just by looking at them once. Now farewell Piccolo. I will kill you with one of your friends’ move”. Piccolo screamed “Like hell, I will let you do it” moved his hands to hit Kami. Kami also screamed “Final Flash” and the beam hit Piccolo. Both were attacked by each other’s attacks. Finally after everyone could see, they saw both of them standing, badly injured.
Vegeta said “What kind of an attack was that. It was similar to mine but so less in power”. Both of them collapsed. Gohan ran towards Piccolo and said with fear “Piccolo!! Can you hear me!? Wake up”. Frieza said “Fear not Gohan. He is just hurt. He will make it. The beam wasnt all that powerful and his attack further reduced any harm as they distracted Kami” He then threw a small pill towards him. “Give it to him. In a few hours, he will be alright. This is a like a medicinal pill. This will help him heal faster”. Goku said “We should have brought the Senzu beans. They would have come in handy for sure”. Vegeta said “Yes but Kami’s attack sure was weak. The final flash attack surely isnt this weak”. Goku replied “Probably even he needs practice. Afterall he didn’t invent the technique. You did. One cannot copy a technique of such level so easily”.
The penultimate match was between Begeta and Frieza. Frieza said “Begeta, we dont have to do this. Come back to us, my son”. Goku was confused and said “What is happening? Since when did Frieza become Begeta’s father”. “Your a fool, Goku. Isnt it obvious by now?” said Vegeta. Begeta said ” You aren’t my father. You never will. You destroyed my race and planet. You lied to me. You said Kakarotto’s family was responsible for it”. Frieza replied “I was scared. If you knew the truth, you would despise me forever. I didn’t want to lose you. I have raised you as my own son. Cooler treated you as your own brother. Please end this now so that we can all go home”. Begeta said “Enough of this. You will pay for killing my family” and he charged towards Frieza.
Next week extra large finale “Fallout”
Goku screamed ” Nooooo!!! Krillin”. Trunks said ” What is my future self doing? “. There was fear in his voice. Gohan said “What is wrong with you Trunks. I will kill you, if Krillin dies”. Future Trunks replied “Frieza is defeated and you know everything now so I dont need to put on this charade anymore. I am not Trunks from your universe. THIS is my universe” He said this with an evil grin on his face. Vegeta said “What are you saying, Trunks?”. He replied “First of all, my name isnt Trunks. It is Tarble. I am the son of Kakarotto. I mean who keeps the son’s name after clothes, bullet missed.My mother developed the inter-universe travel machine so that we could escape this wretched world. We could never stop Frieza. But then I came to your universe. I waited and saw who you all were. This was a do good universe. Soon I learnt of the Dragon Balls. I collected them all and made 2 wishes.” Goten said “Impossible. We would have noticed it. The sky becomes dark when you summon Shenron” Tarble replied with irritation “Shut up and listen. I wished to know all about this universe pertaining you all. The second wish was that you all forget that the sky was ever black. Then it was a matter of playing the role of Trunks”. “SOLAR FLARE” screamed Piccolo. The counter parts were blinded. Frieza said “Grab my hand. I will get you all out of here”. The Z-fighters didn’t know what else to do. Goku carried Krillin and grabbed Frieza’s hand. Just as they were about to transport, Kakarotto, still blinded, said “Goku, I have to tell you something before you leave. The food you all ate while coming here, had a special chemical which seals your power the more you use it. You all now will be weak compared to your original selfs. Also you killed so many innocent soldiers”. He laughed and said ” You’re naive and you killed them, the innocent and righteous soldiers. Even now you’re best friend is bleeding and soon will die” Frieza yelled “Shut up. Enough of this. Let us get out of here” All of them were transported to a different facility.
Goku asked Frieza with desperation “Please help my friend”. “Father” yelled another voice from across the hallway. It was Frieza but younger and a little different. “Cooler, take this man immediately to the medical bay. He needs medical attention now”. “Yes father” said cooler and took Krillin away. Frieza said “You, namekian, are very smart. You had a backup plan or something right!” Piccolo said “Let me introduce us all first”. He introduced and then continued “I had my doubts from the very beginning. Future Trunks or Tarble was acting strange. He said it was the first time he will use the machine but he knew the side effects already? He was very eager to help them without even listening to the story properly. He killed many others for sport and not because he had to. He killed others before they could out his facade. Thankfully I have learnt different arts like Solar Flare and Healing. I healed Krillin a little before we transported here”. Frieza said ” I am sorry for whatever is happening to you. I should have been more strong and destroyed them before only. My naivety has cost you all too much. The saiyans destroyed my planet for fun. We were a peaceful race. We were on a quest to spread peace. We discovered their planet. Little did we know that they would use our technology against us. They used our ships and came to our planet. They destroyed it but managed to get their hands on many ships. They would use it to spread darkness in the universe. I and some others were away and so didn’t know what had happened. We returned to our planet to see space dust there. We were in disbelief. We went to their planet to understand why did they do it” Cooler returned and interrupted “Father, he is currently recovering and will require time”. “Thank you so much for your help” said Gohan. Cooler said “No problem. My dad was narrating his story it seems. Please carry on father” ” So, they laughed at us and said it was for fun. They started shooting at us. Some of us perished. The others fled. I was the last. I knew they couldn’t be allowed to live. The universe was at stake. So I destroyed them with my forbidden move. Over years, I had a child. I have kept this a secret and hope you shall too. We are the last of our race. Those saiyans managed to kill everyone from my race. They knew we had the power to beat them. Before that power could be manifested, they killed us.”
Goku was silently sitting in a corner with doubt in his mind. Goten asked “Dad, Is something wrong?”. Goku screamed “I killed innocent people. How was I so blind. I knew killing is wrong but still I did it anyway. Now Krillin is gravely injured. If wouldn’t have been for Piccolo and Frieza, he would have been dead. I need some time alone” Gohan said ” But father..”. Piccolo raised his hand and signalled him to stop saying anything. Goku walked away. Vegeta followed him. Piccolo said “Gohan, you must realise even your father has a pride. He has never killed anyone good just purely for fun. He is in shock. Let him deal with it. We have to leave him alone and come up with a strategy to defeat our counterparts”. Trunks agreed and said “I want to beat my doppelganger right now if I could” ” I have a plan. Listen to it. Maybe it will work” said Frieza.
Vegeta shouted “Wait Kakarot!! Where are you going?” Goku shouted back with anger “Dont you dare use that name now. I need some peace to deal with it”. Vegeta said “Ok Kakarot, run away. It is the only think you can do now”. Goku got angry. He turned around and flew towards him to fight. Vegeta smirked and said ” That is more like it. Bring it on”.
