Goku vs. Freeza (孫悟空…復活！！, Son Gokū… Fukkatsu!!; lit. “Son Goku… Revived!!”) is the twenty-sixth volume of the original Dragon Ball manga series. It was released on June 10, 1991 in Japan, and in May 2003 for the English version. It is released in North America as Dragon Ball Z volume ten, with the chapter count restarting back to one. It continues through the Frieza Saga.
Freeza takes to his third form, and Piccolo is promptly defeated. Freeza makes his final transformation as Dende heals Vegeta, then kills Dende for good measure. Goku is fully healed and arrives to save his friends, but Freeza kills Vegeta. Goku buries the Saiyan Prince and begins his long battle with Freeza.
Goku and Frieza begin their battle, and the tyrant has more trouble against Goku than he originally thought. The fighters exchange blow for blow, and discover that their powers are nearly equal while Piccolo, Gohan, and Krillin watch from the sidelines, amazed. Goku discovers that Frieza cannot detect someone’s energy without a scouter, which our hero takes advantage of. However, Frieza traps Goku in an exploding energy ball, which nearly kills him. However, Goku manages to escape with only ripped clothing, and Piccolo states that neither of them are fighting at full power, yet.
