After playing around with Frieza for an entire episode in episode 24, “Clash! Freeza vs. Son Gokū! This is the Result of My Training!“, Goku finally revealed his SSJGSSJ form, telling Frieza that the blue Super Saiyan form is what happens when a Super Saiyan God goes Super Saiyan.
Dragon Ball Super’s 25th episode, “An All-Out Battle! The Vengeful Golden Freeza!” begins right after Goku basically tells Frieza “Hey, I showed you mine, now show me your transformation, poo-poo-head!“. Instead, Frieza is stalling like it’s the Namek saga all over again (he has a way of doing this), but he doesn’t seem impressed with Goku‘s new godlike powers, which upsets Krillin, Tien and Master Roshi.
Instead of starting the fight already, Goku and Frieza basically just hang out in the background for about five minutes while Bulma catches Jaco taking pictures. After Jaco tells her that he’s documenting the battle so his superiors can destroy the planet if it gets out of hand, Bulma freaks out and takes away his camera. Unfortunately for Bulma, he seems to have an endless supply of those in his ship…
After Frieza and Goku are done chatting, Frieza tries a few sneak attacks in his original “final form”, but he soon realizes that his powers aren’t enough. Instead of just transforming already, Frieza throws some more trash talk at Goku, which makes Vegeta comment that Frieza is a fool and should stop wasting his time. A sentiment that many Dragon Ball fans watching this episode will share. *wink, wink*
When Frieza finally powers up, Krillin, Gohan, Roshi and the rest, who are basically cheerleaders at this point, are all upset because of his awesome power, while Vegeta just looks on, amused. A huge flash of light follows, and Frieza‘s new form is finally revealed! Everyone’s amazed at Frieza‘s new bling while he informs Goku that he calls his new golden form “Golden Frieza“.
More trash talking follows. Just when you think Frieza is going to wait for Goku to fall asleep, he attacks, though. They end up exchanging continuous energy blasts for a while, but the battle seems pretty even. Just when they’re firing evenly powered energy waves, Whis tells Bulma that he and Beerus are almost there for their strawberry sundae.
Travelling through space, though, they run into Champa, the God of Destruction of the sixth universe and his attendant, Vados. This makes Beerus kinda grumpy (then again, everything does), and he wants to know what Champa is doing in the seventh universe. They almost fight, but after finding out that Champa isn’t interested in seventh universe food, he lets them go. But Champa is up to something…
Meanwhile, back on earth, Goku and Frieza are still exchanging energy waves, with Frieza determined to have revenge, when Beerus and Whis finally arrive. Seemingly unaware of the huge battle between two awesome super powers going on right besides them, they demand their ice cream from Bulma , while the battle between Goku and Frieza rages on in the background.
In fact, the first time Beerus actually notices there’s a fight going on is when he notices Bulma looking at the sky, but he seems completely unimpressed. Even MORE trash talking from Frieza follows. He points at all the people he’s going to kill after he’s done with Goku, when he notices Beerus standing there.
This is the first time in entire Dragon Ball canon that you’ll see Frieza acting like a little schoolgirl. Totally in awe of Beerus, and apparently almost peeing his bio armor pants, he begs Beerus not to intervene in his revenge. Beerus tells him he doesn’t care either way, and Frieza is free to carry on.
This is quite different from the Resurrection ‘F’ movie. Did they actually change the storyline? It sure would be awesome if Vegeta stepped in to fight Frieza for a few entire episodes, maybe include a few cool new fighting techniques and stuff like that. Especially since it’s not entirely clear if Goku surpassed him or if Vegeta is the strongest fighter on the battlefield right now.
