In our last chapter, the Tournament of Power got off to a frenzied, frenetic start. Goku was spirited away by a mysterious, gargoyle-like foe, Universe 11 came under attack, as did Gohan's rag-tag group representing Universe 7! Universe 3 struck first blood, Narirama eliminating four competitors with a single attack, but Toppo put the automaton in its place. This tournament is filled with strong fighters possessed of interesting abilities, but who will come out on top?
"You pathetic idiot!" Belmod shouts at Vuon, then he addresses the rest of the Pride Troopers in the arena, "There will be surprise attacks left and right! Be! On! Your! Guard!"
"Why did we have to lose a fighter so early in the tournament?" Sidra laments. "Of course it would be you..." Roh fumes. "I... I'm so sorry..." Sorrel is on the verge of tears.
"B-but... I am a Doctor!" Dr. Rota complains. "A doctor of foolishness!" Pell yells, but Helles is more frustrated with Universe 3. "Such dirty tactics," she scowls, "To strike while everyone is off-guard."
Murichim seems shocked to have been eliminated, confused at where he is. Gowasu sighs, telling Rumsshi, "I should have never listened to you..."
Ea is thrilled with Narirama's performance, despite his injuries. "Ah ha ha ha!" he laughs at Helles, "Such is the power of Narirama's Super Survival Mode! Great work, Narirama! Keep knocking them off!"
Whis notes, "Their plan was cunning. Narirama's modifications are certainly something..."
Beerus grunts, "Yes, but if Toppo can handle the machine, so can Goku." Shin can only watch, thinking to himself, is Goku really okay?
"I like this!" Goku seems excited as his opponent blocks one of his punches, "Just you and me! Nice power! What's your name anyway? I'm Goku."
"I don't care who you are," the creature growls, "this dark dimension will be your tomb!"
"Hm, dark dimension, huh?" Goku dodges a fist, then turns away from the creature and blocks a taloned kick while he takes a look around, "Yeah... how do I get out of here anyway?"
The imp grows angry at Goku's inattention and aims a double-talon kick at Goku's neck, "How dare you turn your back to me!!" "Ngaaah!" Goku reacts, just barely dodging the attack in time.
"Hey!" Goku retorts and counterattacks with a spinning roundhouse kick that the gargoyle flies away from, "Shame on you! If you had cut my throat I would have died and your whole universe would have been erased!"
The creature grumbles, "I think you know I'd have never hit with that attack, don't you? Maybe you're too much for me, after all." It begins to fly away, it's wings evaporating into shadowstuff and melding into the darkness that surrounds them.
"Hey!" Goku flies after the imp, "Wait, how do I get out of here?!" but before he can reach him, his foe has disappeared. "Darn it!!" Goku shouts.
"I hope you're not afraid of the dark..." laughs the disembodied voice of the gargoyle, "but don't worry, you won't be bored..." behind Goku, silent as the shadow it seems to be made out of, a black skeletal figure reaches for him. Spooked, Goku turns around in an instant, chopping at the shadow with the side of his hand and cutting through only darkness and smoke. Other shadowy figures begin to emerge, silhouettes of half-rotted zombies, wolfmen, snakes, and bats, and more begin to come out of the shadows. Am I just seeing things? Goku wonders. "They'll keep you company until I can find you a more worthy foe," the voice fades out, taunting Goku one last time.
The crustacean from Universe 10 charges at Tien who turns his side, parries the oncoming right hook, and then turns, claps his foe on the back with his left hand, and sends him tripping over his extended right leg. Tien holds a crouching position with open palms as he waits for his foe to stand.
The shadow of the iron dragon passes over Piccolo, Nink struggling to maintain his hold, and the namekian notes it with a briefly concerned furrowed brow before turning his attention back to the cybernetically modified lizard-man from Universe 3. Charging his Special Beam Cannon, Piccolo's been dodging and blocking with only one arm. From point blank range, the modified warrior charges blue ki in its mouth and fires, forcing Piccolo to knock it away with his left hand, giving Universe 3 its perfect opening. Piccolo skips back from the lizard's first swipe, but the follow-up is too fast! With a lunge, the mechanized warrior from Universe 3 throws a punch that bores a hole straight through Piccolo's stomach, emerging covered in purple blood from Piccolo's back! Piccolo groans deep as blood spurts from his mouth, but before the Universe 3 fighter can finish its job, Master Roshi steps forward.
"Lightning Flash..." electricity courses over Roshi's body, occasionally sparking between his hands and the metallic body of the lizard-man, "Surprise Attack!"
Electrified ki energy leaps from Roshi's extended hands to instantaneously engulf Universe 3's warrior, crackling through its body, paralyzing it entirely, not to mention, wreaking havoc on many of its internal electrical systems. Piccolo pulls himself free and coughs up blood as he kneels on the ground.
"Tien! Switch!" Roshi yells, "I can't hold him forever!"
Tien crosses his arms in front of his face, blocking a ki blast from his opponent, then jumps onto the crustacean's head and backflips off, away, to Piccolo's side who continues to concentrate on charging his attack. Tien sizes up the incapacitated lizard-man and powers up, an aura of white energy appearing around him just before he charges at the foe, shoving the mechanical foe back with ease as Roshi maintains his hold. But the old man from Universe 2, the one dressed in red and white superhero costume, sees an opportunity to strike. Simultaneously, the crustacean Tien abandoned closes distance with Piccolo and the aged hero standing on the sidelines flies at Roshi! Piccolo grins and stands to face the challenge, clenching the muscles in his body as he regenerates the damage done to his stomach before kicking the oncoming attacker in the face.
"Tien, I can't hold it!" Roshi shouts before turning to one side and catching a powerful kick from the Universe 2 warrior.
Tien had pushed Universe 3's lizard-man close to the edge of the arena before Roshi had to release his electrical hold, but now Tien found himself facing a foe that seemed to be limiting itself so as not to kill Piccolo only moments before! Tien keeps pushing, his aura flaring even stronger than before, but within seconds, just at the edge of the arena, despite its internal circuitry sparking, the lizard-man finds its footing and puts Tien's charge to a stop. Shocked at his enemy's power, Tien leaps away, holding his hands together close to his chest in a triangle formation.
"Tri-Beam!" Tien yells, "Ha!!"
With electricity still rippling over its body, the lizard-man charges another blast in its mouth to match against Tien's Tri-Beam. Their energy clashes, and for a moment the lizard-man seems to be winning. Tien struggles, screaming louder, and with all of his energy he finds he is able to hold the lizard-man's blast at bay. Suddenly with a small explosion on the lizard-man's side, and a fizzle of electricity, a mechanical failure causes the lizard-man to fall to one knee. "HA!!!" Tien bellows, finally forcing the lizard-man off the fighting stage, leaving Tien exhausted and far away from his allies.
"Special Beam Cannon!!" Piccolo fires his attack at the red-shelled warrior from Universe 10, and it pierces right through the golden armor and smashes the softer red shell underneath. Just as the attack breaks his foe's shell, Piccolo clenches his outstretched hand into a fist causing the ki from his attack to explode sending the enemy flying.
"Oh, wow," Krillin slides away from Bergamo, "that was new! He... he isn't dead is he?"
"No, but I should hope he's out cold," Piccolo replies, walking toward Roshi's fight, "That attack was meant for someone a lot stronger..."
Gohan's eyes scan the spectators' seats and he finds the crustacean seated next to his captain. He smiles before powering up and going on the offensive. "Krillin, I can handle Bergamo, go help Tien!"
"Ha!" Bergamo laughs, "You could barely handle my mangy, little brother! I'll crush you ye--" Gohan interrupts Bergamo, grabbing his arm after dodging his punch and tapping into his full power, an incredible display of white ki rippling around his body. His grip causes Bergamo to falter, reeling from the pain, but despite his every effort, he is unable to free his arm. "On second thought," Gohan says to Krillin, "This guy's starting to tick me off. I'll go after Tien. You just make sure Piccolo and Roshi have this taken care of."
"T-tick you off?!" Bergamo stammers as Gohan powers up even further and spins around faster and faster, kicking up tornado force winds that Krillin raises an arm to shield himself against. Finally Gohan lets Bergamo go, tossing him so far across the arena that he disappears from sight, and then he takes off toward Tien. Krillin chuckles and turns to see how Master Roshi is doing and sees him standing with his boot on the other old man's back, smiling a stupid toothy grin, laughing and making peace signs with both hands.
"Honorless... fool..." Universe 2's warrior manages to spit out just before Roshi goes Max Power and slams a meaty fist into his jaw, eliminating him by knocking him unconscious.
"Steer clear of those costumed characters from Universe 11," Hit tells them, "I will deal with them if I must. And Campden!" he addresses the human, "I know you're interested in Universe 7. They brought humans as well, but if they're anything like their saiyans, I'd steer clear. I'm going to look for the girls," Hit shakes his head, "I'd suggest the three of you watch each others' backs."
Hit disappears in a flash leaving the namekian, Cabba, and Campden. The namekian walks over to Campden's side, "More humans, eh?" he kneels down and puts his hand on Campden's shoulder, smiling like Freeza might smile, "Good. I was beginning to think I'd killed them all." Campden jerks his shoulder away and clenches his fist. "I can't believe you recruited him for this tournament," he says to Cabba, "Hasn't he done enough?" "Campden, we've been over this," Cabba answers, "You know what's at stake." "Yes, Campden," the namekian looms over him, "And those filthy humans must be eliminated if we're to survive!" Campden pushes the namekian hard who stumbles back a step, chuckling, "You stay away from them!" he yells before flying off, adding, "And stay away from me!" Cabba sighs and grinds his foot into the arena. "Nice going, Saaz," he tells the cruel Namekian.
"Caulifla! I'm too weak!" Kale whimpers, pulling herself up pitifully.
Caulifla unleashes a barrage of high-speed punches and kicks, but her opponent blocks them all, his eyes taking a predatory glance toward Kale. "I've seen your strength, Kale!" Caulifla shouts, "I know you can do better than that!"
The stone titan lumbers toward Kale and slams her with a massive, white marble fist, causing her to cry out and knocking her onto her back a few feet away. The beast laughs. "Caulifla, I can't!!"
"Kale, I'm busy!" Caulifla shouts and throws a punch, but her opponent jumps into the air with a smirk and fires another blast toward the mirrored surface of the golem. The golem absorbs the blast and unleashes it on Kale who's barely gotten to her hands and knees. Enraged, electricity dances around Caulifla's body as she ascends to the next level of Super Saiyan, and she flies toward the green, beaked warrior, but before she can enact her vengeance, the shadowy imp that had captured Goku flies into her path, accompanied by a cloud of black energy, tendrils of darkness trailing in his wake. This one may do... the imp thinks, enveloping them both in his dark dimension, and sealing them off from the other fighters as the energy shrinks around them into a tiny black bead before winking out entirely.
As Kale drags herself away from the pair of fighters behind her, blood running down her chin and back, Vegeta watches the whole proceeding with narrowed eyes, holding a large, red-skinned warrior from Universe 10 up by his sleeveless blue shirt, ki blasts exploding in the distance behind him. He throws the barely conscious warrior down and flies toward Universe 2's warriors to get a closer look at what just happened to Caulifla.
With Goku and Caulifla trapped in the dark dimension, Vegeta begins to puzzle out what's happened to his rival, and warriors from across the multiverse continue to showcase strange powers. Who will be eliminated next? Find out next episode!
