Android 17: Seriously, what the Hell's a Kami?
Piccolo: It means God. Now bow.

Original Airdate: December 27, 2014

While Goku and Gohan wait outside the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Piccolo keeps the androids busy. But can he handle against Android 17 with his new power up?

Sure is a lot of not troping going on right now:

  • A God Am I: 17 wonders what the hell a "Kami" is after being knocked down by Piccolo.
  • Butt-Monkey: Krillin finally gets one over on Yamcha.
    Krillin: Hey, I was on Namek, okay?! Shit got crazy! I got stabbed! And blown up!
    Yamcha: I've been stabbed and blown up too! And dumped by the only girlfriend I ever had!
    Krillin: Same. But you know the difference? When mine left, she took all my money. When yours left, she took all her money.
    Roshi: Gonna need a Senzu for that one.
  • Call-Back:
    • This episode reminds us once more that DBZA characterizes Yajirobe as a cannibal.
    • Piccolo finally uses the Hellzone Grenade after coming up with the name for it previous. 17 himself is impressed by its name even as the attack closes in on him.

  • Hypocrite: Discussed. Android 17 calls Piccolo out for stopping the androids from killing Goku when he tried to do it years ago. Piccolo of course argues that when he did it it was for King Piccolo, and the androids are only doing it for no reason. When Android 17 attempts to retort, that doesn't go so well either:
    17: Tell you what: You live a few years in stasis with your creator repeating the words "Kill Goku" over and over again in your subconscious, then you can ride that high horse aaaallll day long.
    Piccolo: ... Wow.
    17: What?
    Piccolo: Nothing, just... Nostalgia.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Yajirobe ate all the clones of Panchi.
    Dr. Briefs: Where did you get that food?! You've already cleared out our kitchens!
    Yajirobe: Not the fridge in the basement.
    Dr. Briefs: I don't HAVE a fridge in my... OH MY GOD.

  • Kneel Before Zod: When Android 17 asks what a "Kami" is, Piccolo says it means "God", then tells him to bow before his next attack.
  • Malaproper: Goku seems to be having fun with his "inability" to pronounce "Hyperbolic Time Chamber":
    Goku: Huh. I'm feeling a whole lotta Piccolo right now. Either he's showing off—
    Gohan: ...or he's fighting an android! We have to go help him!
    Goku: No, Gohan! We have to wait for Vegeta and Trunks to come out of the Hypertonic Lion Tamer!
    Goku: Coulda been.
    • Mr. Popo eventually has enough of Goku's shit:
      Gohan: We've been here for 20 hours?! When?! I mean, how?!
      Goku: That's what makes it hypersonic, Gohan!
      Mr. Popo: Goku?
      Goku: Yeah-huh?
      (Mr. Popo knocks Goku off the Lookout)
  • Not So Above It All: Tien relishing Krillin and Yamcha's argument
    Tien: (thinking) You know, in hindsight, (smirks) I'm so glad that I am here right now.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • 17 has this reaction when he realizes Piccolo wasn't missing with his ki blasts to set up his Hellzone Grenade.
    • Piccolo has this when he sees Cell.

Yajirobe: Why are you so mad?! They weren't even that good!
Dr. Briefs: Most of those weren't even meant to be eaten that way!

How well does it match the trope?
