While Goku races towards Earth along the million-kilometer Serpent Road, the world's mightiest martial artists make their last stand against alien invaders determined to wipe out the human race! Piccolo. Gohan, Kuririn, Tenshinhan and Chaozu struggle five-to-one against Nappa, only to find their opponents' power is greater than they ever dreamed. Their last chance is Goku...but can he get there in time? And is even he, and the miraculous Kaiô-ken, a match for Nappa's commander Vegeta?

The Saiyans power was far beyond the imagination. Chaozu explodes, and Tenshinhan also uses up all his strength. Despite all this, the Saiyan Nappa does not take any critical damage. Even Piccolo heroically meets his end protecting Gohan. At this absolutely desperate pinch, a large ki drew near. The restored to life Goku had finally arrived. Goku crushes Nappa with the Kaio-ken, and commences a grand battle with the Saiyan prince Vegeta.
