DBZ Episode 119
From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki
The Mysterious Youth is the second episode of the Trunks Saga and the one hundred nineteenth overall episode in the uncut version Dragon Ball Z series. The original Japanese title is "Furiza wa Boku ga Taosu... Goku wo Matsu Nazo no Syonen" (フリーザはボクが倒す... 悟空を待つ謎の少年). The episode first aired on December 4, 1991. It's original American air date was September 5, 2000.
SummaryAs Frieza and his father, King Cold, approach the Earth, the Z Fighters meet up near the landing site and prepare for battle. Goku though, they do not believe that they will stand a chance. Frieza is eager to get his revenge and once his ship lands, he believes he sees Goku in the distance. This is because he now has a fear of Goku after what happened on Planet Namek, and he remembers what happened. When he returns to the present, he orders his soldiers to begin the attack. But a mysterious warrior arrives and slices through soldiers, intent on defending the Earth.
- The scene where Frieza is rebuilt is a spoof of The Six Million Dollar Man, especially in the scientist's monologue in the dub. This is one of the few times the Dragon Ball franchise references a real-world pop culture phenomenon.
- Despite the title of the episode, Future Trunks doesn't make his first appearance until the last 30 seconds of the episode.
- The edited-for-TV version removes the scene of Frieza gripping his fist so hard blood spurts out, and the body parts of Frieza's men falling to the ground after Trunks cuts them up.
