"When a goddamn Super Saiyan asks you for a senzu bean, bald man, you say, 'How many?'"

Original Airdate: September 9, 2013

The hunt is on for the last remaining Android, as the Z-Fighters look for him. But little do they know what's in store for them.

Just lie back and think of tropes:

  • Actually Pretty Funny: Piccolo has to give credit to Nail when he suggests "Nail Gun" as an attack name.
  • Ask a Stupid Question...: Piccolo, when Gohan saves him from Android 20.
    Piccolo: Gohan… how did you…
    Gohan: You two were hanging in the middle of the air! How could I not see you?
    Piccolo: Don't you… sass me…

  • Brick Joke: Just like Goku, Vegeta initially says that Trunks is a girl's name.
  • Call-Back:
    • Tien thought-sings "Cat Loves Food" at one point.
    • Even Android 20 is disappointed to find that Namekians aren't demons, but slug people.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Android 20's thoughts.
    Android 20: What have I ever done to you?
    Piccolo: Pretty sure you vaporized half a city.
    Android 20: I meant recently!
    Piccolo: That was an hour ago.
    Android 20: Semantics!
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: An Android calibrated to match the heroes as of the Saiyan saga versus a Namekian that fused with another one, and spent a good three years training with Goku. You do the math on that one.
  • Let Us Never Speak of This Again: When Piccolo probes Tien's mind looking for Gohan, finding him singing "Cat Loves Food".
    Tien: You heard... nothing.

  • Major Injury Underreaction: Android 20 after his arm gets chopped off:
    Android 20: You lime-colored son of a bitch! It's going to take me at least 2 hours to program a new hand! No, wait. I'm right handed. Three hours!
  • Oh Crapbaskets: Trunks has this when he see's Android 19's head,realizing that the timeline is changing.
  • Only Sane Man: Yajirobe points out to Bulma how dangerous it is to be following the Z-Fighters when they are facing off against an Android that, just a few hours ago, killed half the entire population on South City, and the fact that Baby Trunks is with them.
  • Shout-Out: Bulma and Yajirobe are listening to Mr. Roboto as they fly to the battle site.
