Goku uses Tien's Solar Flare technique to blind Great Ape Vegeta in order to buy time to create a Spirit Bomb, but Vegeta attacks Goku the instant he finishes gathering ki. Even in his battered state, Goku manages to wound Vegeta's eye, but he ends up with Vegeta crushing him in his hand and breaking most of his bones in the process. While hiding, Gohan and Krillin watch the fight and try to come up with a plan to cut off Vegeta's tail. They fail, but while Vegeta gloats, Yajirobe seizes an opening and severs Vegeta's tail with his sword, causing Vegeta to revert into his original form. Vegeta then angrily confronts Gohan, who is reluctant to fight at first, until he gets support from Goku. Goku then entrusts Krillin with the remaining ki from the previous Spirit Bomb, and Krillin successfully molds it into another Spirit Bomb.
