Don’t Anger the God of Destruction! The Heart Pounding Birthday Party

Episode Summary: 

After his battle with Beerus, Goku receives a senzu and is healed. Still on Kaiou’s planet, he prepares to leave for Bulma’s birthday party, but Kaiou does not allow him to, out of fear of Beerus. Goku reluctantly agrees to stay away from the party, but he is unsure if he can endure not being able to do anything for very long.

Meanwhile, the birthday party is still going on lively. Bulma rants to the other ladies about her husband, Goten and Trunks are up to their usual shenanigans, Oolong and Kuririn engage in an eating contest, and Gohan and Videl, still passionate newlyweds, stare off into the distance together. Yamcha trains with Piccolo, using his hand as a punching back, to no real effect. The Pilaf Gang is accepted into the group and they chow down on a delicious-looking meal as per the norm. The only one not having a good time is Vegeta, frightened by the fact that Goku was beaten by Beerus with just two blows. However, he cannot clearly remember who Beerus actually is, until he appears right in front of him. Upon sight, Vegeta’s mind triggers repressed memories of the deity mercilessly harming, perhaps even killing, King Vegeta right in front of his eyes, all because the King had deceived Beerus, who requested the most comfortable pillow in the universe, but instead received the second most comfortable, which the King kept for himself. The young prince tries to retaliate but is rendered immobile by Beerus just by looking at him, which happens again in the present. Beerus asks if Vegeta has heard of the Super Saiyan God, naturally receiving a negative answer. Just then, Bulma appears. Vegeta warns Bulma not to approach, but Beerus means no harm to her. Bulma invites him and Whis to her party, introducing them to the rest of the guests. Vegeta simply watches in terror while everyone, ignorant of who the deity really is, casually treat him as a pal. Yamcha is even bold enough to slap Beerus on the back! Kuririn appears with a plate of Takoyaki, intending to play a game with the guests called “Russian Takoyaki”, in which one of the many balls on the plate are filled to the brim with wasabi rather than octopus meat. Vegeta tries to intervene, but immediately steps back when Beerus gives him a cold stare. He eats one of the Takoyaki, and at first looks disgusted. Vegeta gives up all hope and prepares for his demise, but it was a false alarm. The Takoyaki Beerus ate was not the wasabi-filled one. He screams “Delicious!” and Vegeta calms down for a while. Everyone joins in and Kuririn is the unlucky contestant, and as per the norm, he wonders why it’s only he who suffers a humiliating defeat.

The Pilaf Gang may have acted innocently enough to be accepted, but they still plan on searching for the Dragon Balls. Even though Pilaf’s radar still can’t pick them up, he insists that they are present on the ship.

Goten and Trunks engage in a water gun war. Goten turns into a corner and cannot find Trunks, who was hiding on a higher level above Goten. Trunks relentlessly shoots Goten while Beerus and Whis watch them, complaining about the unlikelihood that they would ever receive information about the Super Saiyan God from the children or Gohan, who is still infatuated. Vegeta appears with a plate of Takoyaki for them, and since Beerus can’t advance in his search, he wonders if he should just go back home and take another nap. He notes the change in Saiyan behaviour becoming much more meek than the ruthless warriors Beerus once knew. Just then, Trunks accidentally splashes Beerus with his water gun, which not only angers him, but makes him “super angry”! Beerus prepares to attack, but is halted by Vegeta, who seems to be readying himself to retaliate. However, he does the complete opposite and escapes into the ocean, but that wasn’t his intention. He soon reemerges with a giant octopus in his control. He kills it, and in a humiliating fashion, he hastily prepares more Takoyaki for Beerus to enjoy. All of a sudden, the deity doesn’t seem so angry, and Bulma thinks that Vegeta has done this solely to entertain her and the guests. Whis changes the subject and asks if Beerus has had pudding yet, and the sheer description of the dessert excites him. Unable to find any at the stand, they are directed to Boo, who loves pudding, with many bottles in his possession. Beerus is excited to have one, but Boo declines to give them any. Even after Whis explains that they may never get to eat pudding again, Boo still retaliates and licks all the bottles of pudding, which brings Beerus to his limit. Boo and Beerus challenge each other to a battle, and Boo doesn’t stand a chance. He is easily defeated in seconds, with Beerus using the exact same speech that he used to punish King Vegeta all those years ago. Vegeta is certain there is no longer any hope. It’s all over.
