Episode 208 - Next Up, Goku

Dragonball Z
English Dubbed
Next Up, Goku (#208.0)


The episode starts off with everyone at the WT mad, because Goku, Vegeta, Shin, Kibbito, Gohan, Yamu, Krillin, Spopovitch, and Piccolo flew off, leaving only 5 competitors. Mr. Satan preposes a FFA match, or, a battle royale. Everyone agrees, and Mr. Satan believes he is the strongest in the bunch, however, WE know that's not true...

Meanwhile, in Babidi's ship, Goku begins his battle, and the Sumpreme Kai warns Goku about Yakon being a terrible monster. Goju laughs, and says hes not that bad. Shin is terrified to hear this. Babidi then calls on Yakon, and asks him if he wants to go to his own planet, and Yakon agrees. Babidi screams the magic words, "Paparappa!", and the team are taken to the Planet of Darkness, Yakon's home planet. Goku goes SSJ to fight Yakon, but Yakon eats his light energy?!? Then, Goku gets a plan, he will stay long enough in SSJ form, for Yakon to explode from too much light, and the plan works, and the hole in the planet opens up, taking them to stage 3. NEXT EPISODE: The Battle Royal begins, and it just turns out to be a tournament between #18 and Mighty Mask, and Babidi finds a Stage III fighter, who might be stronger that all of the Z-Team...
