Recap / Dragon Ball Z Abridged M 7

Go To

The Z-Fighters field trip to New Namek takes a turn for the worst when they find that it's been occupied by an army of robots- and a giant vein that threatens to consume everything! Can our heroes deal with this new threat, in the form of their old enemy, Cooler?


Tropes

  • Adaptational Badass: Piccolo is the strongest Z-fighter, unlike the original. He had fused with Kami, while Vegeta and Goku are only shown with their normal Super Saiyan forms. So, in the episode breakdown, Kaiserneko notes that he's stronger than Goku at this point and edits Piccolo to killing an army of Meta-Coolers.
  • Berserk Button: Cooler DOES NOT like being told that everything he's doing is stuff his little brother did already. In the final minutes of the film, Vegeta simply saying "And just like Frieza" is enough to send him into a screaming rage.

    • Kami taunts Piccolo by mentioning that he's never defeated Goku, allowing Piccolo to destroy the Cyclopean guards.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Master Roshi notes that he has many things, "A turtle for a best friend. An island. Chlamydia."
  • The Chew Toy: Vegeta's main purpose in this film is to get kicked in the dick repeatedly.
  • Groin Attack: Vegeta gets kicked in the dick by Meta-Cooler. And then gets another thousand kicks to the dick from the other Meta-Coolers. By the time the movie smash cuts to Goku and Vegeta trussed up within the Big Gete Star's bowels, Vegeta can only muster a high-pitched whimper.
    Vegeta: He keeps kicking me in the dick! Why?! Why does he keep kicking me in the dick?!?
  • It's Been Done: The Z-Fighters are quick to point out that Cooler becoming a robot is something Freeza did. As was killing Krillin, invading Namek, trying to destroy Namek, coming back from the dead, underestimating their power... It's actually shorter to list the things that weren't ripped of whole-hog from Freeza.

  • Lame Pun Reaction: Goku attempts a Bond One-Liner ("Time to put you on ice!"); Cooler's reaction is just "...Really?" and a heavy sigh.
  • Running Gag: Several:
    • Cooler's Mecha-Mooks can only say "Beep".
    • Cooler being compared to Freeza.
    • Goku mispronouncing the Big Gete Star.
    • "I don't see that happening." "Not with that attitude!"
    • Last but not least Vegeta getting hit in the dick.
  • Shout-Out:
  • The Stinger: The after-credits scene is of Vegeta heading home in his space pod, carrying a microchip with him. Said microchip is the last remnant of the Big Gete Star and gives off one meek beep before Vegeta crushes it.

  • We Could Have Avoided All This: Turns out when Dende invited the Dragon Team over for a party, he meant on his Lookout on Earth, not New Namek. About the only good thing that came out of it was stumbling upon and stopping Meta-Cooler's plans cold.
