Gohan and Krillin are making wish
Gohan and Krillin are making wish

King kai called Yamcha, Tien, Chaozu and Piccolo that Gohan and Krillin managed to call the dragon and now its time to make the wish, they became very happy and excited. Porunga told that he will grant any three wishes. As "Porunga" grants wish only in Namek's language, so Gohan asked Dende to tell the dragon to wish the peoples back in earth who were killed by Vegeta and Nappa, but the dragon replied that its impossible cause he can only revive one person from the death at a time. King kai shocked for that and told Yamcha and others about that. Yamcha, Tien, and Chaozu begun to quarreling with each other cause everyone were wanted to be alive to fight against Frieza but as only three person can be revived by the three wishes and one will be left behind.

Gohan and Krillin were in deep thinking for which three they will ask the dragon......Piccolo / Tien / Chaozu / Yamcha.....it became difficult for them to make the decision. Suddenly Piccolo begun to talk from out of nowhere, everyone amazed cause they couldn't see piccolo anywhere. Piccolo told that he was talking by the help of King kai and told Gohan to wish him back. Yamcha and others became angry on Piccolo. King kai became angry too cause he was made Piccolo promised to never fight with Frieza but now Piccolo broke the promise. Piccolo's plan was if he wished back and that will be mean that "Kami" will be also back to Earth, as a result the dragon balls of earth will also appear in earth and the earth's dragon "Shenron" can revive multiple person by a single wish. So if they revive Piccolo, others can be wished back later by the single wish of Shenron. Everyone became pleased on Piccolo except King kai. Piccolo then asked to make him alive by the first wish and to bring him in Namek by the second wish.

He quickly flown toward the island to catch them. Now the dragon was asking to make the third wish. Gohan and Kirllin couldn't see Piccolo anywhere cause Piccolo was brought back to Namek yes but the location was not in there, he was somewhere in Namek. Piccolo was standing on a mountain and observed the planet, then he sensed that a huge evil power is approaching toward a direction, he identified that it must be the place of Gohan and then quickly flew away to join the upcoming battle. Gohan was about to make the third wish to bring Piccolo to Gohan's position but at that moment Vegeta arrived and forced Dende to tell the dragon to make Vegeta immortal.

Its for Guru, as he created the dragon balls, the dragon will disappear too if Guru dies. Guru died and the dragon gone as well. Vegeta became angry again and turned on Krillin and Gohan.
