Episode 69 - Dende's Demise 


Name of Author:Ashley Smith
English, Dubbed Episode of DBZ
Name of Episode:Dende's Demise
Piccolo, Krillin, Gohan, Vegeta and Dende
are looking at the smoke-covered shadow that was the final body of Frieza.Krillin was surprised, "Wait a minute, that's the
new Frieza?! He's so puny!" But Piccolo knew the small creature, that was now Frieza, had small limitations and incredible powers.
King Kai was completely in shock. "No, Frieza has manifested into his final form.Now the universe fall to Frieza's evil rule!"
Piccolo had sensed Frieza's few limits of power. "With his power, we can't even put
a dent in his shiny new armour!"
Frieza had a new face, tail and was white
with a purple patch on his head, chest, wrists and shins.He no longer had horns.
He raised his finger. "Bang!" The others looked on in horror.The power shot went past Piccolo, Krillin, Gohan and Vegeta, but when it came to Dende, 'the hammer hit the nail on the head', all in all, Frieza had just killed Dende in one go.
"That's one down and I didn't even break a sweat."
Gohan couldn't take anymore and lashed out at Frieza.Then Krillin joined the fray, "I've had all I can take from you, AAGHGH!" Since Piccolo shared Nail's feelings after fusing with him, he also released his rage on the recent monster.
There was a lot use of the Technique of Great Variety in this mini-assault.Even though it was Gohan and Krillin, Gohan and Piccolo or Piccolo and Krillin punching and kicking Frieza, the hideous being kept dodging with no trouble at all.Then Piccolo gave him a drill from the Masenko, but Frieza teleported out of
reach. "Why you little... Kamehameha!" Krillin and Gohan gave Frieza some beam treatment of their own with a Kamehameha from Krillin and a Masenko from Gohan.
There seemed to be no sign of Frieza until, "Fools, look behind you!", Vegeta had spotted Frieza.Frieza shot another beam, this time at Gohan.It looked like it was over for the little half-Saiyan until, "Look out!", Vegeta intervened and
returned Gohan the favour of saving his life. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out the Episode Summary of 'No Refuge from Recoome'.)
After saving Gohan's life, Vegeta decided that it was his turn to take Frieza on.He started his usual bragging of being a Super Saiyan, but this time, he had a good excuse, for Dende had healed him in the preceeding episode.Unfortunately Frieza was only effected for a moment, afterwards he started to laugh.So Vegeta started to power up rapidly, then he exploded his energy.
Frieza had still survived, so Vegeta started a mini-assault with the Technique
of Great Variety.He tried one last punch and Frieza teleported down to a little island. "Well I guess you're not a Super Saiyan after all, now are you?"
Is Vegeta doomed, even after a power-up to over 1,000,000? (I got that off another site)
Well, you'll just have to check out the succeeding episode summary.'A Renewed Goku'.


Andy Brown - Reviewer

Frieza is finally transformed to his ultimate stage. Krillin thinks that Frieza looks like a kid but Piccolo says that his power is unimaginable.  Frieza fires a small blast headed straight for Dende that hits him. He’s dead easily. Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo suddenly attack him with all their might but Frieza just toys with them by blocking them all. They all stop and Frieza then fires a blast that ALMOST hits Gohan because Vegeta get’s him out of the way. Vegeta then explains that he is a Super Saiyin and wants to take on Frieza it ends with Vegeta and Frieza staring each other down.

Samir Bashir -

 Dende’s Demise -(Episode 69)

The episode begins with Freiza squaring off in his new form. King Kai, Piccolo nad Goku realize that Freiza’s power was so it seemed unbeatable.

Freiza then fires a small blast which then killed Dende. No one could see or block the blast as it moved very fast.Everyone was awe. Gohan, Piccolo and Krillin then attacked Freiza in a rage all their attempts to attack missed.

Freiza then let loose another small blast right at Gohan but surprisely Vegeta saved him. After that, he says he wants to challenge Freiza on his own. Everyone thought he was crazy, including Freiza. Vegeta called himself a Super Saiyan. Freiza was stunned for a few seconds but then laughed off the remark. After a few words were exchanged, Vegeta began to power up.  Krillin, Piccolo and Gohan had to take to the air as Vegeta’s power was too overwhelming.

Vegeta chipped his tooth because of all the power Vegeta was loading up. After that, Vegeta finished his power up with a bang.

Now he was powered up so he attacked and it seemed that he had Freiza on the ropes but his attacks still missed. Is Vegeta truly a match
