Freeza seems to have thoroughly gained the upper hand against Goku, strangling him with his tail. Seeing Goku reduced to this miserable condition gives Freeza nothing but joy. Over on the sidelines, Kuririn is amazed at just how powerful Golden Freeza is, and Bulma complains to Jaco that at this rate, the Earth is doomed. But Beerus and Whis tell everyone not to panic just yet: Goku still has a shot at victory. Freeza may have grown far stronger, but if Goku and Vegeta teamed up, they could defeat him. Bulma orders Vegeta to go help Goku out, but he does not budge, and Whis explains that the two Saiyans would rather lose than join forces; their pride is simply too high. Bulma is exasperated, and Beerus says that those two are idiots. Whis agrees, saying that they are as stupid as Beerus.
Back on the battlefield, Goku manages to get free of Freeza’s tail and starts fighting back, but to no avail. Before too long, Freeza is knocking him around once more. Sorbet notes to himself that his plan was correct: with Freeza back to life, their army can once again aim to conquer the entire universe. Jaco pesters Bulma to have her husband join the battle, since if Goku loses then even Jaco’s own life will be at risk, but Bulma says that is easier said than done. With Goku on the ground, Freeza says that this is just a taste of the same sort of humiliation Freeza himself suffered at Goku’s hands back on Namek. If only he had managed to use the Dragon Balls to wish for immortality back then, by now he would probably be ruler of the universe. Since the time Goku wrecked his plans, Freeza has thought only of getting his revenge, but now their destiny is complete… and with that, Freeza fires a big blast to finish Goku off.
After the resulting explosion, everyone assumes Goku is dead, until Jaco manages to see through the cloud of smoke that Goku is still alive, though hurt. Goku explains to Freeza that this last attack was super effective: “Frankly, I thought I’d had it.” Freeza assumes he must have held back too much. Suddenly, Goku narrowly dodges a blast from below. It’s Vegeta! He’s mad at Goku for “not catching on”, saying that at this rate he might as well just kill Freeza himself. At first Goku is confused, but suddenly seems to realize what Vegeta is talking about. While Vegeta demands Goku swap out with him and let him take on Freeza, Goku refuses, saying that things are just getting interesting. Just wait a little bit more! Freeza is furious at the two Saiyans for not taking him seriously, but Goku apologies, saying that the real fight starts now.
Goku advises Freeza to just leave now while he is still ahead, but Freeza will not listen. Why should he retreat now, at his moment of victory? Goku explains that he is about to turn the tables on Freeza: while Freeza himself apparently has not realized it yet, his new “Golden Freeza” form has a serious weakness. While it has not factored into the battle so far, if they continue to fight it will definitely become clear as day. Freeza still scoffs, saying that he will simply kill Goku before that happens. Goku says it will not be so simple, and powers up, making Freeza comment that if Goku had that much power, he should have used it from the beginning. Goku says that he will throw everything he has against Freeza, who responds that in that case, he will likewise use his full power to beat Goku black-and-blue before finally killing him. With that, Freeza likewise powers up, impressing Goku. The two will now both fight all-out, just as Goku had hoped for.
Down on the ground, Kuririn is amazed that Goku and Freeza were still concealing so much power; this is a level beyond his comprehension. The two begin the next round of their fight, seemingly now more evenly matched. The two start launching a volley of ki blasts at each other, creating another big cloud of smoke. Freeza suddenly launches forward and engages Goku in hand-to-hand combat, with the sounds of their fighting reverberating outside the smoke cloud. Sorbet is convinced Freeza still has the upper hand, and even Bulma thinks Goku’s in trouble. The two come out of the cloud again, and Goku seems to be getting one-sidedly beaten back. Briefly knocked into the water, Goku worries about being at a disadvantage, but Freeza assures him he will not let Goku drown. Back on land, Goku is knocked down on the ground. As he struggles to his feet, Freeza confidently strides toward him, declaring victory. He punches Goku in the head to finish him off… but Goku is completely unfazed.
Goku calmly notes that Freeza’s “time limit” seems to be up, and starts easily knocking Freeza around. Freeza happens to land near Sorbet, and the two appear to share a quiet conversation. Goku asks Freeza if he understands now: since Freeza came to Earth right after completing his new “evolution”, his Golden Freeza form has very poor stamina, and now he no longer has enough power left to defeat Goku. If Freeza had only taken the time to get used to his new form before coming to Earth, he probably would have won. Off on the sidelines, Beerus and Whis compliment Goku on really using his head for a change. But Freeza refuses to accept this, and vainly tries to fight back. Goku says that there is no point in continuing the fight any longer. Reverting from his blue-haired Super Saiyan form back to normal, he tells Freeza to go home, and offers to take him on again anytime… But before Goku can finish his sentence, a shot from Sorbet’s ring pierces his chest.
Goku collapses on the ground, and Freeza compliments Sorbet on a job well done. It was a good thing they thought up that contingency plan, just in case. Beerus says that was a dirty move on Freeza’s part, but it was certainly effective, while Whis complains that this is precisely why he pointed out to Goku that he had a bad habit of letting down his guard. As Freeza kicks and stomps on Goku, he mocks him for letting his great strength go to his head and get sloppy. That bad habit was his weakness. “How does it feel, being so strong and yet getting felled by a mere raygun?” Freeza says that the grand story of his revenge is now reaching its climax, and charges up a Death Beam to finally finish Goku off once and for all. But before he can fire it, he narrowly dodges an unexpected attack from Vegeta, who declares that it is time to change fighters.
