Kuririn throws the Genki-Dama at Vegeta who dodges it, but Gohan manages to reflect it back at Vegeta, who manages to survive the attack. As Vegeta prepares to kill the group, Gohan's Saiyan tail appears, causing him to turn into a Great Ape. Gohan almost kills Vegeta, but his tail is cut off at the last moment.
