"Good Lord, I traded Vegeta for this?"
—Freeza gives his first impression with Goku's stupidity

Original Airdate: March 23, 2012

Finally, it's time for Goku to battle Freeza! At first, the two seem evenly matched, but how long will the tyrant's patience stand Goku's complete idiocy?

These tropes aren't good at all...

  • Accidental Innuendo: After Freeza causes a dormant volcano to erupt under Goku, the Saiyan yells out "My butt is flaming!", causing Freeza to comment on how much he misses Zarbon.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Defied. It seems like the dying Vegeta might incur this, but quickly admits he'd still be evil even if Freeza had not enslaved his race.
    Vegeta: (to Goku) If this situation were reversed, this conversation would never have happened. You'd be dead, and I'd be laughing. Ahaha-ah, it hurts to laugh.

  • Ask a Stupid Question...:
    Goku: Vegeta! Are you alright?
    Vegeta: I HAVE... A F*CKING... HOLE IN MY CHEST!
  • Brick Joke: Upon Goku telling his vision of a naked Vegeta that he didn't have to lose his clothes when he died, Vegeta angrily says that he's going to kill "that lying red motherf*cker!" The Stinger has King Yemma ordering new arrivals to strip, being particularly impressed by Recoome's...package.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Freeza's Villainous Breakdown is mostly triggered by Goku misinterpreting Freeza's Deadpan Snarker one-liners.
  • Oh, Crap!:
  • Running Gagged: The Kaioken/"Kaio-what?" gag is put to rest (excepting an occasion in World's Strongest Abridged which is supposed to take place before this) when Freeza No Sells a 20xKaioken Kamehameha and replies "No, seriously, Kaio-what?"

  • Villainous Breakdown: Just like Vegeta on Earth, what really gets Freeza nettled is Goku's stupidity.
  • You Killed My Father: Freeza tells Goku that every single child he's spared during his conquests either grows up in slavery or falls into this trope.

Freeza: No, seriously, Kaio-what?
Goku: Kaio-crap!
Freeza: I thought so.

How well does it match the trope?
