Episode Summary

The purple liquid has formed into a purple copy of Vegeta. This new Copy-Vegeta explains that he has taken all of Vegeta’s power and is therefore now the real Vegeta. Unconvinced, Vegeta tries to fire an attack, but discovers he cannot. Instead, Copy-Vegeta fires a Galic Cannon, demonstrating that he really does have all of Vegeta’s power now. Copy-Gryll is amazed that they managed to encounter someone so strong, but tells Copy-Vegeta to absorb Trunks and the others as well. However, Copy-Vegeta hesitates a moment, giving them the chance to make a run for it. Copy-Vegeta finally sends out tentacles to absorb them, but Jaco fends him off with his ray gun before quickly making his own escape.

Trunks and the rest regroup, and Vegeta demands to know what is going on. Potage explains that the purple liquid attacking them is actually the Superhuman Water. Jaco has heard that this miraculous water multiplies one’s power hundreds of times over, and is surprised that it really exists. But Potage clarifies that this account of the water is fiction. The water’s true name is “Comméson”, but people from other planets mistakenly call it “Superhuman Water”. The natives of Planet Potaufeu created Comméson as a self-defense weapon that incapacitates enemies by absorbing their power. Using this, the weak Potaufeuians protected their planet from invaders.

Comméson was endlessly absorbing enemies’ powers and turning into exact copies of them. However, absorbing so much evil power from the invaders, it eventually developed an evil will of its own. Rather than protecting the planet, it now absorbed people simply to seek further power for its own sake. Since the copies Comméson created of those it absorbed made it look like the originals had powered up, rumors of a miraculous power-up water began to spread, luring in further invaders.

Seeing Comméson as a threat to the entire universe, the people of Potaufeu sacrificed themselves to seal it away, leaving only Potage to guard it over the next century. However now Gryll and his men, believing the rumors of the power-up water, have unsealed it. The water absorbed them and created copies, and then did the same to Vegeta. Their task now is to seal it away again.

Vegeta has two questions: first, why did Copy-Vegeta hesitate to absorb Trunks? Potage explains that by copying Vegeta, it even copied his spirit as well. Since the real Vegeta would not want to become stronger by stealing other people’s power, Copy-Vegeta had the same reservations. However, ultimately he was forced to obey Comméson’s orders. Next, Vegeta asks what happens to those whose power Comméson has absorbed. Potage admits that they simply disappear after about 3 to 5 minutes; that’s what happened to the real Gryll and his men. The only way to save Vegeta is to defeat Comméson, even though he now has Vegeta’s power.

Copy-Gryll and Copy-Vegeta are still chasing after the gang, when they find Goten and Trunks waiting for them out in the open. The two boys fuse into Gotenks, but he is no match for Copy-Vegeta, as-is. Gotenks transforms into a Super Saiyan 3, causing Monaka to lose consciousness. But even in this powered-up form, Gotenks cannot defeat Copy-Vegeta. What’s worse, the real Vegeta is starting to turn transparent and will disappear before too long!

Off on Kaiō’s planet, Goku takes a break from training to eat. He suddenly senses Gotenks and Vegeta’s ki, and can tell there’s a battle. Back on Potaufeu, Gotenks splits back up into Goten and Trunks. Before Copy-Vegeta can finish them off though, Goku teleports in. He’s thoroughly confused to see two Vegetas, one of them purple and the other transparent, but Vegeta gives him a (simplified) explanation of the situation: basically, he needs to defeat Copy-Vegeta within the next three minutes! However, Vegeta somewhat snidely doubts whether Goku can defeat his copy, while Goku is just excited at the prospect of fighting someone at Vegeta’s current level of strength.

Even Copy-Vegeta looks forward to squaring off against Goku, so much so that he refuses to try and absorb Goku’s powers when Copy-Gryll orders it. This is going to be a fair-and-square duel to the death, Copy-Vegeta declares. Rebelling against Copy-Gryll, he beats him to the point that he reverts back to formless liquid. With no one left to interfere, Copy-Vegeta and Goku’s duel can begin! Goku swears to put in his best performance, especially with Monaka watching (he does not realize that Monaka, though still on his feet, is unconscious). The two begin fighting, and Goku is impressed to see that Copy-Vegeta really is every bit as strong as the original. Both opponents are hyped up for this fight!

Next Time:
“Goku vs Copy-Vegeta! Who Will Prevail?!”

Episode Notes
