Freeza and Goku continue their protracted battle with Freeza landing more blows on Goku. While no match to Freeza’s raw power, Goku manages to withstand and dodge Freeza’s attacks. Goku and Vegeta notice that Freeza is progressively losing stamina and that his power level is dropping. Freeza himself fails to notice this. Vegeta urges Goku to quickly finish Freeza off, before he has a chance to recover, or he will step up and do so himself. After Goku and Freeza exchange some sarcastic banter, Goku powers back up to Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, enveloped in a blue aura. Freeza powers back up as well and they continue their fight. Freeza still has the upper hand, but Goku knows that he only needs to continue for a while longer before Freeza’s weakness appears again. After a full powered Freeza unleashes a barrage of attacks, he quickly becomes tired and starts running out of breath. His attacks no longer hurt Goku. Freeza finally realizes his weakness. Goku explains that Freeza rushed to Earth immediately after achieving the Golden form, without giving himself enough time to master it. Freeza mouths a few inaudible words to his subordinate, Sorbet, and agonizes over his failed chance at revenge. Goku considers the fight over and powers down to his normal state. Goku tells Freeza to leave Earth while he still can. To everyone’s surprise, a laser beam pierces Goku’s chest fired from Sorbet’s ray gun. Freeza steps on Goku’s chest wound and gloats about his backup strategy to have Goku let his guard down. As Goku screams in pain, Freeza mocks him for being overconfident. According to Freeza, Goku’s overconfidence prevents him from being the strongest fighter. Before Freeza can unleash his killing shot on Goku, Vegeta fires at Freeza and announces that it is his turn to fight.
