In these episodes of the popular action-adventure series, Krillin, Piccolo, Vegeta, and Gohan square off against the sniggering Frieza, one of the most grating villains in all anime. As the individual titles suggest, Frieza increases his power by metamorphosing, growing spikier before assuming his familiar, smooth, white-and-purple form. Piccolo fused with Nail to tackle the villain, but he still isn’t strong or fast enough to overcome him, despite assistance from the valiant young Gohan. Vegeta plans to play both ends against the middle: by tricking Krillin and Dende into transforming him into a Super-Saiyan, he hopes to gain the power to defeat Frieza, then destroy everyone else. Will he succeed?
