Dragon Ball Z Episode 34
In Japan, Dragon Ball Z was aired year-round continuously, with regular off-days for sporting events and television specials taking place about once every six weeks on average. The English broadcast was divided into eight separate near-continuous blocks with breaks varying between four months to over a year between each block. Only in one instance, between episodes 194 and 195, was there actually parity between the DVD release and the actual broadcast sequence in terms of the end of one "season" and the beginning of the next.
Dragon Ball Z Episode 34
What are you talking about? We're just studying these tropes: Belligerent Sexual Tension: The confrontation that led to Vegeta and Bulma having sex began as Bulma wiring into the spacecraft/weight room to yell at him for working through his previous injuries. They end up Volleying Insults, and eventually Bulma invites him to her bedroom after a series of exchanged Atomic F-Bombs.Bulma: Oh, no! The Prince is getting all huffy! What are you gonna do, try to blow up Earth again? Because I have Goku on speed dial. Vegeta: You must be as stupid as he is if you think he knows how to work a phone! Bulma: Don't you call me stupid! Vegeta: Okay, then how about BITCH?! Bulma: Arrogant dick! Vegeta: Spoiled sow! Bulma: F*** you! Vegeta: F*** you! Bulma: F*** YOU! Vegeta: F***! YOU! Bulma: ...my room, 10 minutes.
Bearer of Bad News: The reason for Trunks traveling to the past, besides give Goku the heart medicine, is to warn Goku and the others of the impending Android/Cyborg threat, though he had to help Goku understand the situation. Piccolo overhears and helps Goku relay this to the other Z-Fighters.
Black Comedy: Trunks reveals that the rest of the Z Fighters were killed by the Androids after Goku died. Yamcha died between those times via hanging himself because he finds out that Bulma got pregnant with Vegeta's child. Goku lampshades this.Goku: Dark. The cut version is even darker, as Puar asks, over a scene of Yamcha's slowly swaying hanged body:Puar: Yamcha, can I stop being the rope now?
Cannibalism Superpower: According to Goku, he gained the power to teleport by being fed sick Yardrats, as opposed to training under them in canon.
Clarke's Third Law: Goku insists that the "muffin button" is how he survived the explosion of Namek.Gohan: Please don't say "muffin button." Goku: But it was! There's science and stuff!
Destructo-Nookie: Bulma and Vegeta have sex, with Vegeta shooting an energy blast through the roof.
Deus ex Machina: Back in episode 30,the Namekian Dragon Porunga stated that he couldn't revive Goku because he never died on an exploding Namek. He is also unable to summon him back to Earth because Goku simply didn't want to. Now that he is back, Krillin is the first to ask how he survived. Nobody believes that Goku was actually saved from the explosion by the Muffin Button. Somehow, he makedvso many muffins in Freeza's ship that they form a seal around him, keeping him well protected and well fed, as he is sent to Planet Yadrat.
Dies Differently in Adaptation: In canon, Goku's death in Trunks's time was because of a virus that he caught from unknown causes. Here, it's from a heart attack because of the cholesterol buildup from eating too much bacon.
Unlike in canon, Yamcha doesn't meet the same fate as the other Z-Fighters. Instead he... well... the trope below explains it.
Driven to Suicide: According to Trunks, Yamcha doesn't make it to the fight with the Androids because he hangs himself after finding out that Vegeta got Bulma pregnant. Fortunately, Goku manages to prevent this in the main timeline.
Drives Like Crazy: Both Goku and Piccolo go for joyrides.Goku: Soooo... Wanna go drive cars? Piccolo: Bitchin'.
Early-Installment Weirdness: A little. Goku's first Instant Transmission doesn't have its signature pop noise when he uses it.
Foreshadowing: After Goku reveals how he survived and learned Instant Transmission, he was asked why he didn't arrive sooner to face Freeza. He responds that he was willing to give his friends a chance to save the day, leading to this exchange which teased what's to come much later.Piccolo: Please don't make a habit of that.Goku: No promises.
Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Goku sings "Highway to HFIL". Averted with Piccolo, who sings "Dodge, Bitch!"
Mythology Gag: Trunks tries to correct Goku that the Androids are actually called Cyborgs, the correct translation for a few of the Saga's antagonists.
The original version of the episode has Goku seemingly dying on an exploding Namek, but was later retconned with him finding a space pod at the last minute. Rather than do that in the abridged version, Goku instead survives the explosion via "Deus Ex Muffin-a"
The two driving scenes are from a DBZ filler episode before the Androids Saga began. In that episode, Chi Chi forces Goku (and Piccolo) to take a driver's exam.
Namesake Gag: Of course, Vegeta and Bulma would have sex in Episode 34.
Non Sequitur: The aforementioned Joyride. A looming threat has been revealed and almost everyone goes immediately to train and prepare. Goku and Piccolo? Joyrides.
Oh, Crap!: Trunks multiple times around Goku. First when he screws up his name (but Goku fails to notice), and then when he lets slip that Bulma is his mom.
Bulma also, when she realizes that Vegeta isn't using a condom.
Parental Neglect: Goku and Piccolo leave Gohan in the ground to drive cars the second time.
Plausible Deniability: When Goku, Piccolo, and Gohan are off training, Goku told Chi-Chi they were going to the Ozarks.Goku: Please, never tell her we were here. Piccolo: What are you talking about? We're just "studying".
Precision F-Strike: This is the first time the word "fuck" is uttered uncensored and full volume,note It was also uncensored in Episode 24, but in that case the word straddled two shots, with half of it at a substantially lower volume. to emphasize the fact that Bulma and Vegeta's hook-up was without protection, leading to the conception of Trunks.
Running Gag: This begins the gag about Goku not liking grapes or grape flavoring.
Shout-Out: When they talk in private, Trunks accidentally calls Goku Sun Wukong. Interestingly, Sun Wukong is a main character from Journey to the West, a classic Chinese tale which Goku and the entire Dragon Ball franchise took inspiration from.
The Stinger: After the second car scene, it shows Gohan still laying in the snow bank he fell down, groaning in pain.
Tranquil Fury: Gohan doesn't react well to Goku announcing training after nearly two years off to space. When Goku seems totally oblivious to his annoyance, Gohan just takes a breath and accepts.
Bulma: Wait a second... Vegeta: What? Bulma: Where's your condom? Vegeta: The fuck's a condom?
After losing Bulma and Trunks at a Hawaiian type luau, he loses his temper and flies off to continue his training. To make up for doing nothing the whole episode, Vegeta ramps up his training to his normal 150 times gravity. During his angry self-reflection commentary, Vegeta admits Goku is the best warrior, but vows to not be outdone.
Using the energy Goku gave him, Krillin manages to form the Spirit Bomb into a ball, it's the only one they can make so Krillin's timing must be perfect. Gohan is still fighting against Vegeta, but in the end Vegeta has the upper hand. Krillin watches, waiting for the right moment, when King Kai gives Krillin some encouragement and advice, telling him to feel out the evil ki rather than see him with his eyes. As Vegeta goes in for the kill, Krillin launches the Spirit Bomb. However, Yajirobe's shouting alerts Vegeta of what is going on and manages to evade it. The Spirit Bomb heads straight for Gohan, Goku tells Gohan that he can bounce the Spirit Bomb back as he has no evil in his heart. Believing his father, Gohan tries and reflects the Spirit Bomb straight up to Vegeta, this time hitting him and sending his up into the sky. Back at the Kame House, everyone decides to go to the battlefield, even Korin arrives to go with them. Just as Goku and the others are resting, Vegeta falls out of the sky, and is still alive, though seriously injured. Intent on killing them, Vegeta explodes his ki to wipe out the area. Once the dust has cleared, Vegeta realises he's worse off then he realised, and goes to finish them all off quickly so that he can head back to recuperate. He heads to Gohan first, spotting that he still has his tail and that his light ball he used to transform earlier is still in the sky.
The Great Ape form is Goku's first transformation in Dragon Ball, taking place only a dozen episodes in. When Goku's tail is exposed to the light of a Full Moon, he transforms into a gigantic, uncontrollable Ape. With ten times as much strength, as usual, Great Ape Goku is a destructive, chaotic force.
I think there should be a paragraph in the non-canon anime section covering the various crossover episodes with Dragon Ball and Toriko (e.g. Episode 590). Unless, of course, these are canon ;-) 2myname1 (talk) 02:34, July 31, 2017 (UTC)
For those of you trapped in the land of maple leaves, hockey, and runaway Hollywood productions, forsooth! This week you're treated to one of the very best FMA episodes. It's touching and yet also exceedingly dark and morose, as Ed and Al suspect Tucker's Chimera research may have more to do with the disappearance of his family than he lets on. 041b061a72
