Dragon Ball Z ep 242 - Gohan Revived -- Kaioshin's Secret Weapon!

Madoshi Babidi shows the Earthlings one last display of Majin Boo's power, as the city he just ate the inhabitants of is goes up in smoke. He gives them five days to reveal where Piccolo, Trunks, and Goten are, and during that time, he and Boo will travel from city to city, eating people and blowing up shit. After those five days, Babidi promises to blow up the entire planet. Some humans react to the news:

Dragon Ball Z ep 240 - Enormous Hope!! A New Finishing Technique for the Little Squirts

It's a morose scene atop Kami's Temple in the Heavenly Realm. Vegeta is dead, Gohan is (presumed) dead, and Goku only has hours remaining before he has to return to the Other World for the (presumed) rest of eternity. But even if he had time, Goku says his power was evenly matched with Vegeta, so if he couldn't beat Majin Boo, Goku is sure he can't, either.

Weird Alternative Versions of Dragon Ball Characters (from various media, mostly video games)

Dragon Ball is a big manga. The anime is even bigger. But the amount of video games and other alternate media is even bigger than all of that - probably one of the biggest of any franchise in the world. I'd bet one of my testies that not a single human has played every single Dragon Ball related game. There's just too fucking many. And while most Dragon Ball games rely on rehashing the show over and over (to varying degrees of success), some start spinning their wheels about and come up with some really interesting stuff. (Interesting, not necessarily... good.)

Dragon Ball Z ep 239 - The Struggle of Videl and the Others! Find the Dragon Balls

Today on Dragon Ball, our heroes are going to... look... for the dragon balls. Huh. Well, that's a novel idea.

Videl isn't totally convinced these dragon balls are worth their time, and that they should be focused on trying to find Gohan and the others. Evidently they already went to where Madoshi Babidi was, according to Kaioshin, and couldn't find anyone. But how could these balls really bring the Budokai spectators - or anyone - back to life?

Dragon Ball Z ep 238 - A Nightmare Revisited! Majin Boo Has Survived

Vegeta went out in a blaze, as he expended all his life's forces in a bid to tear Majin Boo to shreds. Only a white husk remains. And it falls to the ground, crumples, and becomes dust in the wind.
