Abakareta yabou!! Ja-aku seimeitai Bebii
Violent Ambition!! Birth of the Evil 'Baby'
The secret room is HUGE, and Gokuu and Pan are in awe of the machine
caring for Baby. Myuu staggers towards his creation, apologizing to it.
During all of this, Baby seems to be sleeping, its heart beating
noticeably, but like it is in pain. Gokuu and Pan speculate over whether
Baby is a new kind of machine mutant, and Trunks tells them that Baby is
very different from the others -- a much more potentially powerful
"neo-machine mutant". Myuu wants to know why the intruders understand
his secret creation, and Trunks indicates that he'd been informed by
Gill. Gill claims that if Baby succeeded, it's kind would be
superfluous -- it was either Baby, or them. Which is why Trunks has
already cut the power to Baby's computer.
Myuu snaps. Of course, Trunks -- as the son of Bulma -- has the
skill to modify Myuu's computer's programming. At this point, as befits
the death of someone important and powerful, the rain starts (in this
case, it is a rain of meteors punching through the crystalline bio-dome
and splashing into the artificial lake.) Myuu becomes one with his
computer in an attempt to save Baby. Trunks claims that he'd killed
Baby for the sake of all life in all of the galaxies. When Pan realizes
that Myuu's goal of conquest included Earth, she gets righteously
indignant, while Gokuu is unimpressed. Trunks sides with Pan. Gill
comments that it, and it's kind, are guilty of doing many bad things for
Myuu. Pan corrects the robot, adding that it had at least helped them stop
Myuu. Gill is happy with this thought until Pan insults it as a joke;
she then hops around like a boxer to challenge the little mecha. Trunks
says that there was a lot of data to discover when he left M2, and he
goes into a flashback.
When Trunks was still a tablet, Gill had teleported to Myuu's planet
late at night. A strange robot surprised Gill, but it only wanted to
punch the helpless Trunks tablet before wandering away. Gill then freed
Trunks, and they discussed their findings on the machine mutants until
the fake Trunks slab (created by Gill) teleported in. The two intruders
share a laugh as the flashback ends.
Back in reality, Trunks comments that it was a good thing he'd
uncovered Baby. Otherwise, there'd be no way of knowing what horrible
things Baby would be capable of doing, given that Myuu is such a
Myuu cries out for his creation to not die. He goes mad, rambling on
about how he slaved over Baby, to make it big and strong. He demands
that Baby live, as he smashes his fist into the control console monitor.
Pan is feeling a little pity for Myuu, and Gokuu ponders over the fun
he could have had fighting Baby. Trunks tries to get the boy to become
serious. Gokuu wonders if the neo-mutant is really dead. He crawls
over the glass container like a cockroach, inspecting the monster. Myuu
berates the boy for this show of disrespect, until Baby wakes up. Gill
yells "Danger!", and Myuu coos over his little "cute Baby". The
neo-mutant powers up, becoming fully formed.
Trunks is confused, having thought that he knew what he was doing.
Myuu becomes a gushing daddy, while Gokuu expects the worst. Baby
explodes free of his container, blowing the Saiya-jin out against the
distant bio-dome walls. (The dome shows holes where the meteors have
fallen through.) Myuu collapses to the ground. Gokuu yells for the
others to stand alert, which they do.
Myuu commands Baby to send the Saiya-jin to Hell. Baby marks his
targets, and says "sa -- ru -- jin". As Baby floats into the air and
begins to power up some more, Gokuu calls out "Pan", "Trunks" -- "Now!"
All three fire off their trademark energy balls, and blow Baby to bits.
Disheartened, Myuu presses a button on his chest, which converts
the remains of Baby's container into a space ship. A bit of pink goo
sneaks up Myuu's leg as the doctor stumbles to the ship. Myuu (with the
damage he's taken, it is clear that he too is a machine) says "good-bye"
and blasts off. Pan yells at the doctor to come back, and has to be
restrained by Gokuu. Trunks tells her that with Baby dead, Myuu can no
longer be a threat on his own. It is time for them to return to the
task of finding the Dragon Balls. Pan asks about their ship -- Gill
pulls out the energy knife to show that the ship can be restored.
In his own ship, Myuu vows to make Baby's successor, to take over the
galaxy and destroy the Saiya-jin. Unfortunately, Baby takes over Myuu's
body, and bursts out -- killing Myuu. Baby comments on the programming
it had received, and the legacy bestowed on him by Ruudo and the other
mutants. But, Baby has his own plans and goals. He sets his sights on
M2 to intercept his prey. (When Baby crushed Myuu's head, the #1 Dragon
Ball rolled out.)
Note: I can't find "seimeitai" in my dictionaries. I am assuming that
it means "birth", until someone can prove otherwise.
