Recap / Dragon Ball Z Abridged E 6

Go To

Kami: Mr. Popo, where did you send them?
Mr. Popo: I'll tell you where they're not: safe.

Original Airdate: October 25, 2008

Goku finally makes it to King Kai's to begin his training...right after he plays tag with the monkey and hits the cricket with a hammer. Meanwhile, Mr. Popo sends the Z-Fighters into a training simulation that fails to do anything but torture them. Finally, the supporters summon the Dragon to bring Goku back to life...even though they could just wish to remove the Saiyans from the plot.

These tropes are horrible:

  • Insult Backfire: Yamcha's attempt to slap back at Tien's insults backfires spectacularly.
    Yamcha: Gay.
    Tien: Hey, at least I don't spend all my free time living alone with a cat!
    Yamcha: Hey! At least I get some pusswow, that did not come out right.

  • My God, What Have I Done?: Played for Laughs as King Kai says this after Goku leaves following his training.
  • Sadist Teacher: Mr. Popo dumping the Z-warriors into the Time Room looks more like he's just torturing them. He even look in, and laughs maniacally while Tien and Yamcha are repeatedly slaughtered.
  • Stating the Simple Solution: Shenron points out that he could just deal with the Saiyans himself, but the the supporters insist on bringing Goku back to life. In the original series, they did ask the Dragon to do it, but the Saiyans were too powerful for Shenlong, and even if he could, that would be closing their short window of opportunity to bring Goku Back from the Dead. In this series, he tries to suggest Loophole Abuse by saying that they use their wish to indirectly kill the Saiyans by redirecting their spacecrafts to head for the sun, and the time limit for revival isn't brought up.

  • Time for Plan B: In The Stinger, Piccolo is ready to use Gohan to conquer the world. Then Kami chimes in and tells him the Saiyans are about to arrive. He immediately changes plans so he and Gohan can help fight them.

"New plan, Gohan! We're going to kick some Saiyan ass!"

How well does it match the trope?
