Japanese Dragon Ball - Episode Summaries
Episode 196 - An Assembly of Fighters from all Era's ... Goku enters Dai-Kaio's tournament"
Series: Dragon Ball Z
Son Goku and North Kaio are walking along in Heaven, and Goku is excited about Paikuhan’s great power that he displayed in the last episode. Kaio reminds Goku that there is plenty of other strong fighters in the after life. Kaio brings Goku to a little house, and calls out a HUGE group of warriors that he had trained before Goku. He introduces Goku to 3 of them (a dog warrior, some weird looking guy named Saade, and a Hercules looking guy named Olive). Kaio explains to Goku that all these warriors have been training for hundreds or even thousands of years just for the chance to get trained by Dai Kaio. Suddenly, South Kaio, East Kaio, and West Kaio come skipping in. West Kaio is short Kaio with a monacle. East Kaio is a fat, female Kaio. South Kaio is a tall Kaio. They all make fun of North Kaio for being dead. After a while, they decide to hold a tournament to see who the best fighter in Heaven is.
North Kaio, East Kaio, South Kaio, West Kaio, and their thousands of students arrive at Dai Kaio’s mansion. They ask him if they can hold a tournament, and he happily agrees. Dai Kaio tells them to follow him, and he starts skipping through some halls, followed by the Kaios and their students. They arrive at a large door, which Dai Kaio pushes open, revealing a large room which looks like outer space. Dai Kaio says that the tournament will be held here. Goku is excited about the tournament, but East Kaio tells him that he is new, and shouldn’t be accepted in the tournament. She soon decides to have a race with him, and she says if she wins, Goku can’t enter the tournament, and if Goku wins, he can enter the tournament. East Kaio gets on her hover bike, and the race begins. Goku leaps from asteroid to asteroid, and also flies. Eventually, they both seem to pass the finish line at the same time, and they find Dai Kaio waiting for them. They ask who the winner is. The winner is....Dai Kaio?!? This angers East Kaio, and she even starts crying.
Later, on a large section of
ground floating in the outer space room, the tournament
is starting. The announcer is saying his opening
comments (the announcer is a man with a mushroom for a
head). The tournament is being held in celebration of
North Kaio’s death. After Dai Kaio says some opening
comments, the tournament begins. The first match is
between Olive (the Hercules like guy), and Chapa Chai
(an African-American midget with a beard).
Chapa Chai was trained by East Kaio. The match
begins, and after a bit of fighting, Chapa Chai splits
into multiple clones of himself. They all leap into the
air and attack Olive, but Olive dodges them, and the
clones slam into each other, and drop to the ground.
Olive wins the match. A few more matches pass (you get
to see some quick shots of people winning their matches,
including Paikuhan). The next match is between Son Goku
and Catapee. Catapee
is a large catapillar creature who was trained by South
Kaio. The match begins, and Catapee tries to grab Goku,
but Goku leaps into the air.
Catapee stretches out his arms and reaches Goku,
grabbing him. Catapee begins to tickle Goku, and Goku
uncontrollably laughs. South Kaio seems to be very
immature, since he taught his students such silly
attacks. After a while, Goku powers up, sending Catapee
into the air. Catapee lands on the ground with a large
thud. Goku thinks Catapee is weak, which makes Catapee
lies down, and a cacoon appears around him. He has begun
his transformation to a very powerful form. The
announcer asks South Kaio how long the transformation
takes, and the answer is....1200 years. Everyone falls
over, classic anime style. Goku wins the match by
default. The episode ends.
