Tamageta zo!! Gokuu o osou kinzoku tsunami
Surprise!! Gokuu's Attacked By a Metal Storm
Gokuu and Rirudo fight, with the Shogun turning part of the
mecha-forest into stone, and Gokuu's body smashing it into rubble.
Rirudo announces his Hyper Mega Rirudo Pautsu (Parts?), and attacks with
a power drill-powered tornado. (Gokuu is still excited, but the battle
is losing its glamour for him.) Gokuu comments on Rirudo's great power,
and they quickly revert to energy ball blasts. Rirudo gets pummeled
deep into the forest.
Meanwhile, Pan is once again fighting her way into the tower, while
complaining about Gill. Right after entering the lab, Pan has just a
second to yell at Gill before the lab's defenses activate and the room
reforms to transport her back outside.
Rirudo has gotten a little roughed up (the drill bit hand has been
broken off.) Gokuu knows that Rirudo is still not fighting at full
strength and demands that the Shogun power-up completely. The Shogun is
impressed with the boy's confidence, and understands why he'd make a
great gift to Dr. Myuu. Gokuu doesn't care about Myuu -- he only wants
to see Rirudo's true form. The Shogun then incorporates part of the
planet's cabling into his body; turning completely silver and smooth,
except for some screw heads scattered over his torso. He is now in
complete control of the entire planet. As Gokuu prepares to fire
Kamehame-ha, Rirudo turns part of the ground into liquid metal, and
makes metal trees grow up right in front of the boy (disrupting the
Kamehame-ha.) The new liquid metal forest is huge, and Rirudo merges in
to become part of it.
Pan re-enters the tower, getting more annoyed every second. The red
commandos are alerted, and are waiting for her. Pan comments that the
robots underestimate her power, and they pile on top of her. She
grouses that they are in her way, and she trashes them -- knocking the
robots off the pathway and into the depths below. All except for one
robot, which prudently jumps off the path by itself. Another robot
arrives behind her, and Pan attacks. Then, she desperately tries to
pull her punch when she recognizes the old robot from the trash
compactor room. Pan asks why she can't stay in the room that Gill is
in, and the old one answers that it's because of the trans-dimensional
warp equipment used to send stuff places, like to Dr. Myuu's planet.
Pan realizes that this is what happened to Trunks. She asks for
instructions on how to use the equipment, turning her charms on the old
one -- it answers "I don't know." So, Pan punches it through the
ceiling into the floor below (it can flow through metal also.) She
calls it a worthless old hulk.
Rirudo joins with the liquid metal again, and tells Gokuu that he is
one with the entire planet. Gokuu is fascinated. The boy loses
interest fast though, saying that he already realizes that Rirudo has
great powers; but, he's in a hurry and wants to start fighting full-out
already. Rirudo seems to be taking the bait.
On Myuu's planet, Dr. Myuu is watching the fight on a monitor,
commenting that Gokuu seems to be the "Legendary Super Saiya-jin." He
keeps laughing, and tells the frozen Trunks that he hopes to be using
the Saiya's powers very shortly.
Pan and the old robot get on an elevator, with a hundred red
commandos. Pan complains about their brain-damaged thinking, and when
the doors open again, none of the commandos work anymore. Pan
confronts the traitorous Gill, ranting that everything that happened
from Ruudo's planet onwards was all a trick to lead the heroes into the
trap on this planet. Then, the defenses trigger again, and Pan is
pulled into the walls to be deposited back outside. The old robot
goes to the control console and pulls out a cylinder that deactivates
the wall warp. Pan blasts herself free from the "rude" wall, and
demands that Gill return the Dragon Balls so that the Earth can be
saved. Gill claims ignorance, and Pan gleefully exclaims that it can't
rely on the wall warp anymore. But, Gill phases through the door and
leaves the room. Pan tries to get Gill to open the door, then prepares
to use Kamehame-ha on it. The door opens, revealing more guards, these
armed with guns. Pan decides to use Kamehame-ha on them instead.
However, Gill reactivates the wall warp, the old robot gets captured,
Pan loses her concentration, and the walls force Pan back out of the
room. Gill says only one word -- "Pan".
Back outside once more, Pan wonders what to do now. Then, she
notices that one of the Dragon Balls is outside with her (Gill apparently
transported the three Dragon Balls, plus the medal it had been wearing,
out to Pan.) Pan is happy to see the Dragon Ball, but she also wonders
Gokuu and Rirudo keep messing around, with the Shogun using the metal
of the planet as extensions of his body. Gokuu is getting angry, and
Rirudo taunts him, saying that Gokuu will soon be given to Myuu.
Note: I am not sure of the pronunciation of Rirudo's tornado attack.
It sounds like "Hyper Mega Rirudo Pautsu". It could be "Parts",
which doesn't make much sense. Or, it could be "Pa!", which is
like the energy-focusing yell that Tao Pie-pie used in his
"Dodon-Pa" attack. However, Rirudo only uses this attack once.
Since he is killed soon, this attack will never be repeated in the
