(Movie 1) Dead Zone
An evil little Namek, Garlic Jr., is gathering all of the Dragon Balls together to wish for immortality. Since young Gohan has the #4 Ball sewn to his cap, Gohan is kidnapped by Garlic's minions. This causes Gokou to seek out Garlic (whose mansion is located on a black island to the south of Kame House). Garlic also wants to get rid of Kami-sama, so his minions attempt to kill Piccolo (if Piccolo dies, Kami-sama also dies, and vice versa.) So Kami-sama and Piccolo join in the battle, as does Kurilin. The minions are wasted, but Garlic Jr. already made his wish, so he is unkillable. Garlic and Kami-sama fight it out, and Garlic wins (he wants to get rid of Kami-sama to make way for his own "reign of blood", but he doesn't kill Kami-sama right away).
Garlic Jr. gets beaten up a bit by Gokou and Piccolo, so he decides to create a "Dead Zone" (a black hole) which threatens to suck everyone in and kill them. But Gohan (who had eaten a hallucinagenic apple, and is still feeling a bit of a buzz) gets angry, and blasts Garlic into the Dead Zone. The Dead Zone closes, sticking Garlic into a form of eternal hell.
Garlic, Jr. -- Evil little immortal Namek, lost and forgotten.
Ginger -- Garlic's green-skinned, red-eyed demon minion. Killed by Gokou.
Nikki -- Garlic's blue-skinned, apple-eating minion. Killed by Gokou.
Sansho -- Garlic's big, purple-skinned demon minion. Killed by Piccolo.
Movie 2 (03/10/90)
Kono yo de Ichiban Tsuyoi Yatsu:
The World's Strongest
Oolong steals Bulma's Dragon Radar, and discovers that someone is gathering up the Dragon Balls. He and Gohan go into the northern glaciers in time to see Dr. Kouchin summoning Shenlong and wishing for Dr. Wheel's lab to be released from the ice. Piccolo arrives to save Gohan from Kouchin's bio-men, but the demon is overcome by Wheel's 3 androids (Gohan and Oolong escape). Later, Kouchin goes to Kame House, and kidnaps Bulma in order to force Kamesennin to go with him to the lab. Kamesennin is told to fight the three androids, and does well for a while, before being defeated by rubbery Minkattsun. Bulma learns that Kouchin and Wheel's plan on turning the Earth into a desert and peopling it with androids. Dr. Wheel's brain is encased inside a robot, and he wants the body of the world's strongest man to house his brain. But, while Kamesennin was the winner of the Tenkaichi Budoukai 50 years ago, (when Wheel's lab was iced over) the strongest man is now Goku.
Gokou learns what happened to Kamesennin, and goes to the lab, where he destroys all three androids. Gohan and Kuririn also arrive, and end up battling the brain-controlled Piccolo until Gohan's shout of frustration causes the mind-control bands to shatter. Dr.Wheel decides to fight Gokou, and as he pulls his robot body free of the wall. The resulting destruction hurls Kouchin down an energy shaft, and Kouchin's outer coating melts before his own robot body is destroyed.
Wheel fights the heroes, and looks like he'll win, when Goku creates a Genki Dama and throws it at Wheel. Wheel flies up into space to get a breather, and he is destroyed up there.
Afterwards, Kamesennin says that Wheel got one thing right -- Kamesennin is the world's strongest guy. Bulma corrects that to "the world's dirtiest old man."
Dr. Kouchin -- The Christopher Lee of bio-tech scientists. A robot, he is accidently destroyed by Dr. Wheel.
Dr. Wheel -- A large brain housed in a robot. Was a deranged scientist until his lab was entombed in ice. Killed by Gokou.

Minkattsun -- Blobby, yellow rubberman android. Punctured by Gokou.
Chikuu Marugoto Chou-kessen:
Earth's Ultimate Deciding Battle
(The Tree of Might)
Oolong, Kuririn, Bulma, and young Gohan are on a camping trip, when a spy satellite crashes into the forest and starts a raging fire. Kuririn and Gohan battle to put out the blaze, then gather the Dragon Balls to wish for the forest to be restored. One of the animals they save is a Haiyaa Dragon (Higher Dragon) that follows Gohan home to become his pet. The two of them (and Gokou) play together and have a lot of fun, but Chichi wants the dragon sent back to its mountain so it'll stop disrupting Gohan's studies.
Meanwhile, a Saiyan fighter, Taurus, and his minions are scouting Earth to locate Kakarot. Turles wants Kakarot and/or Gohan to join him to go trash planets. The minions plant a seed for an energy-eating tree near the restored forest -- Turles plans on eating the fruit of the tree to get a "power up." The tree grows quickly and threatens to destroy Earth. Kaiou-sama alerts Gokou to the danger, and everyone (Chi Chi prevents Gohan from joining in, but Haiyaa Dragon kidnaps the boy to take him to the battle) goes to fight Turles. Piccolo joins in to save Gohan, but the demon still plans on killing Gokou later on. Gokou denies his Saiyan heritage, claiming that he's happy to have been hit on the head as a child, rather than growing up to be like Turles.
There's a major battle, and Gokou uses a Genki Dama to kill Turles and destroy the tree. Afterwards, the Genki Dama breaks up, and the lifeforce energy repairs the damage from the tree.
Shinseiju -- The energy-eating tree.
Turles -- A Saiya-jin Warlord that looks like Gokou. Killed by Gokou.

Super Saiyan da Son Gokou: This is the Super Saiyan, Son Gokou.
Young Gohan and the Haiyaa Dragon visit Piccolo to show the demon the new dance that Gohan taught the dragon. But, Piccolo, in pain, yells for Gohan to stop.
A planetoid headed towards Earth causes a panic, and Kuririn and Gokou go out to try to deflect the thing with their energy blasts. It still crashes into Earth, but it turns out to be a spaceship that needs to land for refueling. The ship is commanded by the imperious Emperor of the Universe -- Slag, who demands that they leave in 3 days. A weather satellite is launched to cause a cloud to cover the planet, and freeze it over. Earth is now more hospitable for the soldiers living in the ship, and they step outside to terrorize the Earthlings. Slag recognizes the Dragon Ball that is sewn into Gohan's cap, and reads Bulma's mind to learn about the Dragon Radar. The Dragon Balls are rounded up, and Slag wishes for his youth back.
Gokou and Krillin receive Senzu Beans from Yajarobe, and they go to fight Slag. Piccolo shows up to save Gohan. Slag reveals himself to be a Super Namek. Gokou wastes Slag's minions, and even turns into a Super Saiyan for a while, but is trashed by Slag when the Super Namek turns into a giant. Piccolo tears off his own ears, then yells for Gohan to whistle again; we now learn that Nameks get hurt really bad when Earthlings whistle. Slag drops to his knees, and Piccolo imparts his energy to Gokou. The Gokou/Piccolo fusion beats up Slag, then Gokou flies above the black cloud to get enough energy to create a Genki Dama that kills Slag.(Slag accidently trashed his own spaceship, so there's no bad guys left now.) The cloud dissipates, and Yajarobe reappears to give Senzu Beans to the heroes. Piccolo's ears grow back. Finally, Kamesennin, who'd been sleeping through all this, wakes up from his dreams of naked women, and exercises while saying that the weather is very nice today.

Back when Freeza destroyed Planet Vegeta, and killed Bardock, Gokou's older brother, Cooler had been watching from his own spaceship. Cooler had seen Kakarot's space capsule zipping off, but didn't interfere with it. 20 years later, Cooler receives a report stating that Freeza has been killed.

Crash!! The 10 Million-Power Fighters
A giant metal planet lands on the new Namek planet (New Namako), and begins eating it. The Namek elders call to Dende for help, and Dende relays the call. This is why Gokou, Gohan, Krillin, Kamesennin, Oolong, Yajarobe, and Piccolo get into a spaceship and fly off. (Vegeta is in his own space capsule, and he arrives to ensure that Gokou lives long enough for him to kill Gokou.
Turns out that Cooler has pulled a V'ger trick, and has become part of the ship that is eating the Namek planet. Cooler's robot are sent out toround up all of the Namek. Gokou's ship arrives in time for the Z Fighters to also be picked up to be used to power the ship. Gokou and Vegeta fight Cooler, and get trashed. They are wired into the ship to provide power for Big Geta Star. Gokou and Vegeta push the limits of their Super Saiyan power, and cause Big Geta Star to overheat. Finally, Gokou blows the real Cooler away, and Big Geta Star explodes. (First time that Vegeta shows up in the movies.)

Kyokugen Batoru!! Sandai Suupaa Saiyan:
Battle Limit!! The Three Super Saiyans
Right after Dr. Gero gets destroyed by his androids, #17 and #18, Gero's computer triggers his earlier creations -- #13, #14, and #15. The androids have orders to seek out and kill Gokou (while Gokou and company are on a shopping trip). The resulting combat involves Gokou, Kuririn, Piccolo, young Gohan, Vegeta, and future Trunks. After #14 and #15 are destroyed, #13 uses parts of them to undergo a power up. The only way #13 can be destroyed is for Gokou to create a large Genki Dama, and then use the energy from it as he switches to Super Saiyan. Afterwards, Gero's lab computer shuts down.
#13 -- Lean, white-haired android. Destroyed by Gokou.
#14 -- Big, blue skinned barbarian android. Destroyed by Trunks.

Moetsukiro!! Nessen. Ressen. Chou-gekisen: Burn Your Spirits to the Max!!
A Close Battle, Violent Battle, Super Bloody Battle.
Gokou and Chi Chi go to interview for a school that Chi Chi wants Gohan to attend, while everyone else is busy partying at a Cherry Blossom-Vewing Drinkfest. The party is disrupted when a ship lands.Paragasu steps out to invite Vegeta to travel with him to the planet New Vegeta, to fight the Legendary Super Saiyan. A drunk Kamesennin, Kuririn, Trunks, and Gohan fly off as well. Meanwhile, Kaiou-sama telepaths to Gokou to alert the hero of the danger. Goku teleports out of the interview, leaving Chi Chi in the lurch. Paragasu introduces Vegeta to Paragasu's wimpy son, Brolli, and waffles over actually disclosing where the Legendary Super Saiyan is. Gokou teleports in, and Brolli goes berzerk. After a lot of screwing around, we find out that Brolli and Gokou had been born on the same day. King Vegeta had ordered Brolli (baby Brolli had already been determined to be a threat to the Saiyan) and Paragasu to be killed and dumped in the trash. But, baby Brolli's power saved them. Brolli grew up to be a maniacal killer, and had poked out one of Paragasu's eyes. Right after that, Paragasu had a head band created that effectively lobotomized Brolli.
Brolli overcomes Paragasu's control and turns into a Super Saiyan; he trashes everyone. Vegeta loses his nerve at seeing the Legendary Super Saiyan, and can't fight anymore. Paragasu knows that the planet New Vegeta will explode soon, so he wants to fly away, killing two birds with one stone: revenge on the Vegeta family, and disposing of his troublesome child. But, Brolli crushes the space capsule, killing his father. Then, Gokou summons the energy from his friends, including Vegeta, to become a Super Saiyan himself, and killing Brolli. Before the planet explodes, Gokou teleports everyone to Piccolo's ship and they return to Earth.
Paragasu -- A one-eyed Saiyan killer with a hate against Vegeta's family. Killed by Brolli.
Brolli -- A mad Saiyan, barely controlled by his father. Born on the same day as Gokou, and hence has an affinity for our hero. Apparently killed by Gokou.
Shamo-saijin -- Ugly little creatures that have been carried off their planet of Shamo to do Paragasu's bidding. Saved by Gokou.
Ginga Girigiri!! Butchi-giri no Sugoi Yatsu:
The Strongest Guy in the Universe!!
The Money Family is hosting a Tenkaichi Budoukai as a birthday present for 10-year old Dollar Money. Dollar is hoping for aliens to come from space and join in the tournament, so four of Mr. Satan's pro-wrestling students are in costume as the "aliens" in the final rounds of the competition. Kaiou-sama and Gokou are on Kaiou planet (Kaiou is watching the game on TV, Gokou is playing Go Fish against Bubbles the ape -- the deck has Uranai Baba and Pilaf's crew on the face cards)
The elimination rounds are basically 8 batches of free-for-alls; the last person standing in each free-for-all goes on to a one-on-one round. The final four each get a shot into one of four "Battle Stages" to face Satan's "aliens." The first person to emerge from the Battle Stage wins the 100,000,000 zenni prize money, a trip to a hot spa, and a chance to fight Satan. Krillin, Future Trunks, teenaged Gohan, and Dosukoi make it to the Battle Zones, where they are attacked by real aliens (Satan's students have already been killed)
Kaiou-sama realizes that the aliens are Bojack's team. A LONG time ago, the four Kaiou's had battled Bojack, and imprisoned him far, far away. Bojack has escaped, and come to Earth to destroy it and kill Gohan as revenge on Kaiou-sama, knowing that Gokou is Kaiou's student, Gohan is Gokou's kid, and Earth is Gokou's planet.
There is a lot of fighting as all of the Z Fighters show up to attack Boujack's 5-man team. Eventually, the heroes are trashed, and Bojack is about to crush Gohan's throat. Gokou can't take it any more, and the dead hero teleports in from heaven just long enough to kick Bojack in the face and save Gohan. With renewed anger, Gohan goes to Super Saiyan 2 (SSJ2), and kills Bojack's remaining minions before killing Bojack.
Satan had been trying to escape since seeing that the Z Fighters had entered the tournament, but was pushed into a sled and sent to the Battle Zone, where he succeeded in destroying the camera televising the fight with Bojack. At the end of the movie, Satan is again declared savior of Earth, and no one wins the prize money. (Gohan, Trunks and Kuririn are recovering in a hospital for some reason, while Piccolo and Vegeta are already fully healed. This movie has lots of continuity flaws and plot holes. Definitely doesn't fit in with the manga or TV series.

Kikenna Futari! Suupaa Senshi wa Nemurenai:
The Dangerous Pair! The Super Fighters Cannot Sleep
Goten, Trunks and Videl are out gathering up the Dragon Balls (just for the heck of it. When asked, Trunks decides that he wants to ride cool things to have adventures (pirate ship, train), while Goten wants to eat delicious cake whenever he wants) and succeed in grabbing the 5th one. When they zip off to find the sixth one, they come upon a village terrorized by a monster dragon. The last girl in the village is about to be sacrificed to appease the monster, when Vital volunteers to take her place. Goten, Trunks, and Vidal hide next to the supper set out for the monster, surprise it, and kill it (after much screwing around). In return, Trunks receives the Dragon Ball attached to the village Shaman's necklace.
Meanwhile, a Saiyan space capsule crashes to Earth nearby, and the sleeping Saiyan inside is aroused by vibrations caused by Goten when the boy wanted to eat the banquet set out for the monster. The Saiyan turns out to be Brolli. When Brolli stretches his muscles the next day, Videl senses it, and goes to investigate. As do Goten and Trunks. Brolli thinks that Goten is Kakarot, and there is much fighting. The final Dragon Ball is located during the battle, but Goten doesn't know how to summon Shenlong, so Trunks gets trashed while trying to distract Brolli (Trunks also has to take a piss after hiding next to a bunch of waterfalls, and relieves himself on top of Brolli's head). Gohan senses Brolli's ki, and arrives to join in the battle. Gohan's blast causes lava to boil up, and Brolli is trapped in the magma. Gohan passes out as the magma inches near him. (Kuririn is dressed up like Piccolo as a joke when he saves Gohan)
But Brolli is a Super Saiyan, and the magma doesn't phase him. Gohan and Goten use Kamahameha on Brolli. (And, probably because of the Dragon Balls nearby, Gokou is allowed to show up to perform Kamehameha as part of the trio) Trunks manages to throw an energy ball that distracts Brolli, and the triple Kamehamaha blows Brolli into space, and into the sun. Videl recovers, and thinks that Gohan was masquerading as Broli, and attacks him. Goten and Trunks go back to the village to get food, and Kuririn wonders why everyone has forgotten about him. (The Dragon Balls disperse as if Shenlong has fulfilled a wish)

Suupaa Senshi Gekiha!! Katsu no Ore da:
Super Fighter Shootout!! I'm the One Who Will Win
#18 has gone to Mr. Satan's house to collect on the 20 million zenni prize money from the Tenkaichi Budoukai that she let Satan win. Satan claims that the money hasn't been turned over to him yet. Then, a minion of a guy who was a classmate of Satan's, arrives to blackmail Satan into going with him to fight some bio-tech warriors. The minion, Menmen, threatens to tell the papers that Satan was a bed wetter in 6th Grade. Satan caves in, and #18 goes along to keep Satan from running away. Goten and Trunks hide in the back of the car to try to fight these "bio-tech thingies", and Kuririn is forced to take his daughter back to Kame House.
Baron Jagaa Badda has created some pro-wrestler-strength warriors, and he wants them to fight Satan, just to put Satan back in his place. Satan pretends that #18 and the two boys are his students, and they easily destroy the bio-tech baddies. However, Goten recognizes the guy standing beside Jagaa as being the Shaman from the forest village in the last movie. Turns out that the Shaman collected some of Brolli's blood at the battle site, and sold it to Jagaa. Jagaa had his scientists use the blood to create the "Ultimate Bio-tech Warrior." Trunks and Goten try to use Kamehameha on Brolli's container before Brolli can awaken, but it is too late. However, the process isn't complete, and Brolli is badly misformed. There is much fighting, the chemicals used in the bio-tech process get loose and eat up all living things, and Brolli trashes Goten, Trunks, and #18. Kuririn arrives to protect his wife, and also gets trashed.
Finally, the heroes rescue the scientists, and all of the people living on Jagaa's island escape onto ocean liners. The bio-tech chemicals try to eat Burolii, and are instead turned into an energy source for him. Ultimately, Goten discovers that the chemicals lose potency in sea water (or any liquid with salt, such as pee), so Kuririn, Goten, and Trunks use Kamehameha to create a tidal wave that cleanses the island. Brolli keeps trying to kill Goten, but is now vulnerable to Goten's and Trunk's energy blast. Brolli dies, and Mr. Satan tries to swim back home, rather than accepting #18's offer of saving him for a total of 1 Billion zenni.
Baron Jagaa Badda -- Short, fat, prissy former classmate of Mr. Satan's. Has lots of money, and is making bio-tech fighters because he can. Doesn't die, but his island does receive much costly damage.
Menmen -- Jagaa's tall, blond-haired minion. Is actually very inept but pretends to arrogance.
Kitou-shi -- The Shaman is back, trying to make lots of money by selling Brolli's blood to Jagaa. Dies when the bio-tech chemicals eat him as he is trying to steal cash from Jagaa's office.
Dr. Korii -- The grey-haired scientist creating Jagaa's bio-tech fighters.
Nine -- Korii's chief assistant.
Hei -- Jagaa's bio-tech wolf-dog. Eaten by the bio-tech chemicals.
Broli -- A misformed bio-tech nightmare. Maybe stronger than the original. Remembers when Trunks had taunted him in the last movie. Destroyed by seawater, Goten , Kuririn, and Trunks.
Fukkatsu no Fushion! Gokou to Vegeta (or) The Fusion of Revival! Gokou and Vegeta (or)
We are back in heaven, during the Budoukai held by Dai-Kaiou to determine who the greatest dead heroic fighter is. The four Kaiou's quarrel over who has the best student, and the final round is about to start, between West Kaiou's Son Gokou, and South Kaiou's Paikuu-han. Both fighters want to win cleanly, and they begin sparring. Meanwhile, Enma Daioh (Heaven's Gatekeeper) is being harsher than normal, sending many, many souls to hell for one reason or another (the ones going to heaven get to ride Ten Airlines, while the ones going to Hell get to pass through a "Spritz Cleaner" machine that removes all the evil from them. Once cleansed, the evil souls have their memories removed, and are reincarnated to try again). Psych Oni, the demon tending the Spritz Cleaner, is too busy dancing to his walkman tape to notice that the Cleaner is running in the red. The Cleaner regulator explodes, and all of the concentrated evil escapes. Psych Oni tries to contain the mess before tearfully reporting to Enma Daioh. At this point, the concentrated evil covering Psych takes effect, turning the boy into a giant yellow squeeze toy named Janenba. Janenba immediately encases Enma's Gate House in a magic crystal, and it then amuses itself by twisting the fabric of With Enma trapped, the dead residing in Hell can escape and roam around on Earth. Gohan and Vidal set out to combat the dead, while Goten and Trunks search for the Dragon Balls to set everything right again. Gohan gets to confront Freeza again, and very quickly destroys the monster. All of the other supporting villians from the previous DBZ movies also surface, only to be dispatched by the Great Saiyaman team. Shenlong is summoned, but the Dragon God has to admit that it has no jurisdiction over the dead, and it can't fix the problem involving Enma. So, Goten and Trunks spend the movie fighting the endless masses of Hitler's zombie armies. (Satan is also dispatching zombies easily, but he's upset that there's no TV crew around to broadcast his exploits; he plans on calling in a report to the TV station later)
Dai Kaiou suspends the Budoukai to let Paikuu-han and Gokou run off to Enma's Gate House to resolve the problem. At first, they try to play with Janenba, until Goku starts getting mad. Unfortunately, Janenba can do transdimensional tricks, and it punches one way, only to have his fist appear elsewhere to blindside Gokou. Paikuu-han is told by Dai-Kaiou to try to free Enma (eventually, Paikuu realizes that by swearing and insulting people, he can make the magic crystal crack and flake off.) Janenba can also make copies of itself, as well as warping Gokou so that the hero will appear in front of his own Kamehameha. Gokou switches up to SSJ3 and pummels Janenba. The creature melts, only to turn into the next-stage version -- Changed Janenba. Janenba now uses a series of warp tricks ala "Total Recall", and trashes the SSJ3 Gokou.
Gokou escapes deeper into Hell, first hiding in the Pool of Blood; then he gets rescued by the dead Vegeta. (Vegeta reminds Gokou that only Vegeta has the right to destroy Gokou.) Vegeta powers up to SSJ2, attacks Janenba, and also gets trashed. Vegeta's body flies towards the Mountain of Needles, and is caught by Gokou. Gokou tries to get Vegeta to do Fusion with him, but the Saiyan Prince would rather die first (Gokou points out that Vegeta is already dead.) Vegeta's pride is tearing him up, and Janenba attacks the mountain, causing Gokou to grab Vegeta's shoulder and teleporting them both to a safe zone. Vegeta relents, and Gokou shows him the Fusion pose. Vegeta is appalled at the idea of having to do something so stupid. But, there is no time left, so the two of them perform Fusion Waza (Fusion Dance).
Vegeta forgets to extend his right forefinger, and the resulting Fat Gogeta attracts Janenba's attention. The ensuing battle is plain slapstick (Fat Gogeta's only successful attack is a series of foul-smelling farts.) At the last moment, just as Janenba is going to destroy Fat Gogeta, the Fusion wears off (it took 30 minutes) and the two Saiyans run away again. Kaiou (West Kaiou was receiving a lot of abuse from his siblings for having such a useless student) telepaths out that Vegeta botched the pose. So, they try again. And are interrupted by Janenba. Paikuu-han succeeds in breaking the magic crystal, and he runs to confront Janenba to give Gokou and Vegeta more time. Janeba apparently True Gogeta looks a lot like Super Saiyan Gokou, with a Persian-style vest and baggy pants. On Earth, Goten and Trunks sense the energy levels of their fathers, and the two boys also do Fusion to become Gotenks (Gotenks uses Kamikaze Ghost Attack to create 100 exploding ghosts to destroy Hitler's armies.) Gogeta punches Janenba up a bit before hitting the monster with a special energy ball. The ball blows up in the monster's chest, and all of the evil within it dissipates. Psych returns to normal, takes one look at Gogeta, and runs away screaming.
Enma is back in charge, and the dead all return to Hell (including Vegeta. Vegeta says that he never wants to Fuse again) Goten and Trunks promise each other to not tell Gohan and Videl who it was that saved them all; Gohan and Vidal chase the boys to get answers from them.
In the last panel, Shenlong asks if this means that no one is going to ask him for a wish.
Paikuu-han -- A "Frog". A good-guy fighter created for the TV series to kill time. Ignorable. Psych Oni -- Probably means "Psychedelic", or "work". A teenaged red-skinned demon boy who tends the Spritz Cleaner. Wears a skull jacket, striped pants, and a walkman.
Janenba -- Probably means "a place of evil." At first, this is a big yellow goofball that hurts stuff for fun. After its transformation, it becomes a human-sized Lucifer-type Master of Hell. Uses magic, and a magical sword. Created when Psych was dowsed with concentrated evil. After Gogeta defeats it, Psych recovers, and runs away to disappear from sight forever.
Comment -- This is probably one of the more lame DBZ movies, where the set-up takes 55 minutes, and the final climax takes only 30 seconds. Note that the "Other World" Budoukai, never happened in the manga, and was only created by some, TV scriptwriter to let the manga story get a few months ahead of the TV series.
Ryuuken bakuhatsu!! Goku ga Yaraneba Dare ga Yaru
Dragon-Fist Explosion!! If Gokou Can't Do it, Who Can?"
A long time ago, a group of evil magicians brought a huge, skull-faced demon -- Hirudegarn -- to life to terrorize their planet. The demon could only be controlled by two gourd whistles and a legendary sword. Taipon and his little brother, Minosha, had used the gourd whistles to play a song that calmed Hirudegarn long enough for the demon to be cut in two, and trapped within the bodies of the two brothers. Taipon was sealed in a music box and shot out into space....
It's a busy day in Satan City for the crimefighting team Great Saiyaman (Gohan is Saiyaman 1, and Videl is Saiyaman 2) when they get a call that a crazy old man is trying to commit suicide by jumping from a tower. The old man, Hoi, is rescued, and he shows Gohan a box that can't be opened. The boy tries to turn the crank, but can't. The box is given to Bulma, but her science toys can't see inside it. So, the Z Fighters round up the Dragon Balls and ask Shenlong to make the box open. This happens, and Taipon steps out playing the legendary tune.
Minosha, who used to look just like young Trunks but with red hair, was killed long ago, and his half of the demon starts stalking Satan city and trashes it. But Gohan attacks it with fireballs, and the creature disappears.
Taipon escapes to a deserted factory plant, and is followed by Trunks (Trunks keeps bringing food to Taipon, but Taipon keeps chasing him away.) When Taipon falls asleep, his half of the demon tries to escape from his body, but is then recaptured when Taipon wakes up again. Eventually, Taipon is befriended, and he explains everything to Bulma. Bulma tries to make a demon-capturing bedroom, but Hoi is using his own magic to awaken Hirudedarn. Taipon's half of the demon escapes Bulma's trap and becomes whole again.
The Z Fighters help trash the city in their attempt to defeat the demon, and Goten and Trunks use Fusion to become Gotenks (but, Gotenks' energy attacks cause the demon to go into a cocoon phase before emerging as a giant WINGED demon.) The Z Fighters get mulched, Tapeon tries to use his whistle, but it shatters. Trunks tries to use Taipon's sword on the demon, but Gokou switches to Super Saiyan 3, and announces that Hirudegarn is HIS to defeat. Gokou pulls out a Super Punch with a golden dragon surrounding it (Ryuuken), and destroys the demon.
Afterwards, Bulma makes a time machine to return Taipon to the time when the boy had been shot into space, and Taipon gives the sword to Trunks (there by explaining how future Trunks came by the sword that had been used to carve up Freeza and Freeza's Father in the anime)
Taipon -- A teenaged elf with a bright red mohawk and to the back of his head. Carries a sword and a gourd whistle. Has one half of a demon trapped within his own body.
Minosha -- Younger brother of Taipon. A smaller elf with an orange mohawk. He looked like Trunks. Carried a sword and a gourd whistle. Killed in a flashback at the beginning of the movie.
Hoi -- An evil little magic user that wants the energy gained from the demon when it destroys stuff. Pointed ears, red skin, long bushy white hair, and catfish stickers on his cheeks. Stepped on by Hirudegarn.
Hirudegarn -- 1000 year old, VERY tall, fire-breathing skull-faced demon. Blown into dust by Gokou's Dragon Punch.
There's some VERY GOOD special effects here, and lots of death and destruction as the demon wastes Earth.
