Z Movie # 7
Batoru!! San Dai Sûpâ Saiya-jin"
("Extreme Battle!! The
Three Great Super Saiyans")
Gero is attacked by Artificial Humans 17 and 18;
against his own wishes, he has resorted to activating
them in an attempt to kill Son Goku and his friends.
Unfortunately, they are more powerful and aware
than he had anticipated, and turn against their
master. #17 decapitates Dr. Gero, and crushes his
head. Elsewhere in his laboratory, we see Dr. Gero's
blood dripping down into a room with a computer
still working hard, hooked up to three more giant
capsules large enough to hold a person inside. The
numbers on them read out 13, 14, and 15.
and his friends are in the city, all enjoying different
aspects of the day out (beauty contest, shopping,
eating, the works). Two strange looking beings (a
short purple-skinned one with a hat and a large
blue-skinned one with a pony tail), both wearing Red
Ribbon Army symbols, approach the mall where everyone's eating, and begin
blowing things up. They zone in on Goku,
and the fight begins.
quickly realizes that they are both Artificial Humans,
as he can sense no Ki from them. At first, Goku battles
them both, with Trunks joining in shortly. Gohan
insists that he also leave to fight (much to Chi-Chi's
delight, of course). Kuririn thinks that the fight
is far above his own capabilities, but Chi-Chi thinks
differently. Kuririn wonders if he'll
ever get married...
fight continues, and soon a third being shows up.
This one is very humanoid looking, and even has
a cheesy baseball cap (with the Red Ribbon emblem,
of course). During the fight, Vegeta makes a surprise
entrance, as does Piccolo. Each of the three
Saiyans takes on an Artificial Human, and appears
to be beaten up badly. All three turn themselves
into Super Saiyans, much to Kuririn's and Gohan's
delight, as the tables seem to turn on the Artificial
and #15 are destroyed by Trunks and Vegeta. #13
is surprised, but still has a trick up his sleeve.
The remaining chips from the two defeated Artificial
Humans float up into #13, and he absorbs them,
beginning his transformation into a giant, blue, pupil-less
monster. Everyone is thrashed by this "Super
13," and Goku is eventually tossed into the
ocean. Despite being nearly killed, Goku raises
his arms into the air (although he's upside down!),
and asks for everyone to contribute their energy.
Goku slowly rises up from the ocean, and a Genki-Dama
gradually forms in the air above him. Super 13
repeatedly attempts to defeat Goku, but is repelled
each time by Gohan, Vegeta, Trunks, and Piccolo.
As Piccolo is crushed under the weight of Super
13's foot, he yells out for Goku to show him the
true power of a Super Saiyan. Goku indeed turns
into a Super Saiyan, but Kuririn remarks that it
will be impossible for Goku to use the Genki-Dama
with a heart full of anger and hatred (which is
necessary in order to turn into a Super Saiyan).
a shocking (and highly illogical) move, Goku begins
to absorb the energy from the Genki-Dama AS a Super
Saiyan. Blue energy surrounds both him and Super
13, destroying the ground around them. Super 13 tries
(and fails) to punch Goku, who (with a blood-curdling
scream) punches directly through Super 13, and tosses
him up into the surrounding energy.
wakes up to see his father sitting above him on
a rock, saying, "Yo!"
at the hospital (where everyone was apparently brought),
Kuririn offers up an explanation as to what probably
happened with the Genki-Dama, while Goku laughs and
says he has no idea. Gohan asks where Piccolo and
Vegeta are; the scene cuts to the both of them,
sitting silently and facing away from each other on opposite sides of an ice floe, out in the middle of the ocean. A fish
jumps out of the water, and the ending credits begin!

movie seven continues the trend of music from Mark Menza
(who would later go on to provide the score for the
English dub of DragonBall GT).
Movie seven also marks the first appearance of Trunks.
The Japanese version (found only on the uncut DVD)
retains the original Japanese score (why wouldn't it?), and
has superbly-translated subtitles provided by Steven
J. Simmons (Daimao), himself.
