dragon ball super ep 33 title

Be Surprised, Universe 6! This is Super Saiyan Son Goku!

Episode Summary: 

As the match between Goku and Botamo begins, Botamo starts bouncing around the ring. At first it looks like he is giving Goku a hard time, turns out Goku is too full since he ate so much, and because of this his movements are now restricted. Goku starts stretching and running in circles to get himself ready, and finally is ready to fight. Goku fires a Kamehameha right at Botamo, and it has no effect on him at all! Goku starts punching Botamo repeatedly and still nothing is working against him. Jaco, however, knows what is going on. He explains that Botamo cancels out Goku’s attacks by sending the damage to a different dimension. Bulma questions this, and Jaco does admit that this only might be the case; he isn’t totally certain. Vegeta then yells out to Goku telling him to use his head, at which point Goku takes this literally, throwing his head at his stomach. Goku then changes things up a bit since all of his attacks are ineffective. He then picks Botamo up by his legs and throws him out-of-bounds. With that, Botamo loses, as per the rules. Champa becomes very upset and throws a temper tantrum, however, Vados tells him that he does not need to worry since they have four fighters left, and they do not need to win every match.

Next up is Goku versus Frost. Frost looks almost identical to Freeza, despite some color changes. There is a major difference, however, in that Frost seems to actually be a good guy. He surprises everyone when he says that he wants a good and clean flight. Frost stats that it is a bit unfortunate that their respective universes are on opposing sides, but this is just friendly competition. After the talking concludes, the fight finally begins. Goku notices that Frost is holding back, and he is unhappy. Goku knows he isn’t fighting as his full potential and that he is trying to get an idea of just how strong Goku is. He knows this because Freeza has done the same to him. Goku convinces Frost to not hold back. Frost then claims that’s he will now transform into his final form. He begins to power-up, and it results in an unusual transformation, looking almost identical to Freeza’s third (and not final) form. The fight then continues.

The referee explains to Goku and the crowd that the form Frost is currently in is called his “Assault Form”. He continues on explaining that Frost leads a peace-keeping force as part of a mission to put a stop to conflict through Universe 6. Frost uses this form when going into war zones. When said wars end, Frost dedicates his time to helping children and providing relief to those impacted by the wars. Because of this, Frost was three times awarded with the “Universal Peace Prize” because of his continuous support. Additionally, we now learn that Champa promised Frost that if he were to win this tournament, he would lend support by helping him keep the peace in their universe 6. Bulma and the others are mind blown. To think that these guys actually seem like the good guys! Because of this, they are unsure who to root for. The battle continues and Goku still knows that Frost is holding back. He knows that he has another transformation, and as does he. Goku then transforms into his gold-haired Super Saiyan form. Champa is shocked, and turns to Cabba asking him if Saiyans can transform. Cabba responds saying no, and that he has never seen anything like this before.

After Goku finally transforms, Frost then undergoes another transformation of his own. Much like the first transformation, this transformation also resembles one of Freeza’s, only this time it’s his final form. Frost explains that he has trouble controlling the power this form of his allows him to wield. In fact, he accidentally and unnecessarily killed a criminal while in this form. Since that time, he has avoided using this final form, but he feels that Goku should be able to handle it. Once more, Goku begins fighting and clearly has the upper hand on Frost. However, since Frost is such a genuinely good guy, Goku does not want to hurt him. He advises Frost to surrender because of this. Frost then refuses, saying that if he wins he will get Champa’s support in protecting the children and people of universe 6. After hearing this, Bulma starts to cheer Frost on.

Just when things looked over for Frost, Goku starts acting like he is exhausted. No one knows what is going on, but Frost notices this as well and makes his move. He then knocks Goku out-of-bounds. Goku then powers down to his base form. The match is over. Advantage Frost.
