“Dragon Ball Super” Episode 036


An Unexpectedly Tough Foe! Vegeta’s Explosion of Rage!

Episode Summary: 

Vegeta seems to be exhausted. Off to the side, Goku and the gang also realize this, and discover that his heavy breathing and exhaustion is due to the fact that Magetta is heating up the area with steam. Beerus wonders if the new barrier that Vados and Champa put up was set-up so that the heat would stay in, however, Champa quickly counters this by saying the barrier does quite the opposite. However; Vegeta reasons that he needs to end this match quickly before the heat actually becomes a problem. Magetta attacks by spitting lava at Vegeta. Vegeta attempts to attack him, but he is forced backed by his steam. Suddenly, Magetta produces a large explosion that pushes Vegeta close to the barrier. Before reaching the barrier, Vegeta stops himself, saving him from elimination by ring-out. The referee validates that this explosion was fair-play, in that it was not created by a weapon. In fact, this explosion was created by one of Magetta’s farts that had been ignited! Beerus wonders if Champa has the referee in his pocket, but Whis also confirms that this explosion was in fact fair game.

Meanwhile, Goku watches Magetta’s fighting style and finds it interesting. Continuing his attacks, Magetta once more spits lave at Vegeta. At this point, the heat that he is generating is starting to take a toll on Vegeta. Beerus shouts at Vegeta telling him that he best not lose this fight! With this, Vegeta is fed up and begins charging up what seems to be his signature Galic Cannon. Magetta then raises the heat up even higher. Vegeta fires his blast, and Magetta counters with a lava blast. Vegeta is sent flying out of the ring, and one of his feet touches the ground out of the ring…or does it…?!

Vegeta balances on one foot while the referee comes and checks whether or not he is touching the ground. Vegeta is…NOT out of the ring! In flying out of the ring Vegeta’s foot landed on a small piece of the area that landed on the ground. With this, the referee declares that Vegeta is still technically in bounds and that the match shall continue. Just like Beerus, now Champa wonders if the referee is in Beerus’ pocket! Champa shouts out demanding to know who hired the referee…at which point Vados innocently states that it was Champa himself. Much like Goku, Vegeta too is saved by a rule that may or may not be a controversial matter. He is not happy. Vegeta then asks the referee if he will remain in bounds as long as he does not touch the barrier. Somewhat confused, the ref responds with “yes”, and Vegeta instantly starts powering up. Champa just assumes that Vegeta is being a child and yelling. All while powering up, Vegeta plans to, and does, destroy the barrier with only his power. The barrier shatters and begins flying everywhere. The broken pieces of the barrier resemble shards of glass, and pieces nearly miss hitting Monaka; though he still remains un-phased, and stays still. Of course, this impresses Goku. Champa asks Vados why she didn’t make the barrier impenetrable, and she confirms that he himself told her that the strength of the barrier did not matter.

Now that the barrier is broken and the head has escaped, Vegeta can breathe. With that, Vegeta fires a massive Final Flash! Magetta counters and a ki and lava struggle commences. Vegeta’s Final Flash is too powerful for Magetta’s lava, and Magetta starts getting pushed toward the edge of the ring. Vegeta then shouts to Magetta, “you’re finished now, you hunk of junk!” Magetta gets sent flying, and lands out of the ring. The match is over; advantage Vegeta. With his victory, part of the arena has also been destroyed and needs to be rebuilt. Vegeta flies back over to where Whis is and chugs down some water. Magetta, over with the rest of his team, is seen crying by Goku, Vegeta, and the others. Goku is confused by this but Whis confirms that when he was called a “hunk of junk” it probably upset him. Supposedly Metalmen are a sensitive breed. Beerus is angry at Whis for not telling him such important information, and yells at him expressing just that. Goku states that if they knew that in advance the fight would have ended up being a boring one. In addition, if Vegeta were to have fought at full power he could have ended the fight much earlier, however; both of them were worried about Hit. Now, the Universe 6 Saiyan, whose name is Cabba, is ready to fight
