Episode 10: Sit Tight Chiaotzu! Tien’s Screaming Tri-Beam!

As the episode starts, Krillin is powering up to attack the rest of the Saibamen. His attack is pretty effective and kills all but one Saibaman. The last Saibaman goes after Gohan, but Piccolo stops it, punches it, throws it into the air and destroys it with a blast that shoots out of his mouth… The punch, was cut out of the TV version.

Next, Nappa powers up and everyone is just standing there bracing for an attack to come. Nappa, seemingly out of nowhere just blast Chiaotzuinto a mountain. Chiaotzu hitting the mountain was cut out…

After Nappa powers up, he goes after Tien. In Nappa’s barrage of attacks he knocks Tiens hand right off. In the the TV version, the exact point we see the arm detach is cut out. This is the last frame we see in the TV version…

…as appose to this being the last frame in the uncut version…

We then get a dramatic scene of Tien holding his arm and screaming. This scene was cut in an odd way because yea, you’d expect the blood coming out to be edited but they changed the background from blue with red splatters (I guess to signify blood?) to just blue…

The fight with Tien and Nappa continue even after he lost a hand. At some point during the fight Tien screams out…

Tien is knocked to the ground and Krillin looks at the devastation that has happened and says to himself…

Why did they need to change that line? I have no idea.

Krillin then runs off, I don’t know where he was going cause Tien and Yamcha were behind him in the previous shot. Nappa sees this and blast an attack towards him that leaves a huge crater. Tien then looks up at Nappa and all the blood that is visible in that shot is now gone in the TV version. I find these blood edits weird. Sometimes they re-color them brown or almost a flesh color, sometimes they don’t edit it and sometimes they edit all of it out.

Seeing an opening, Chiaotzu clings onto Nappas back so that he can blow himself up taking Nappa with him. Nappa tries crashing into mountains to try and get Chiaotzu off. These shots were cut in the TV version…


We then see a close up shot of Chiaotzu as he is talking to Tien telepathically. All Chiaotzu’s blood is gone…


As Tien looks on, all his blood, again is gone…

Chiaotzu then tells Tien…

I should note that there was no need to edit Chiaotzu in the above image because there was no blood in the uncut version.

Chiaotzu blows himself up. Krillin, seeing Nappa is totally fine says…

Nappa looks at Tien and says…

Tien, realizing nothing is going to work on Nappa and frustrated over the loss of his friend, in the uncut version, grabs a rock, holds it up for a second and yells “I’ll gonna kill you” and then crushes it. In the TV version though, he picks up the rock and crushes it.

Tien then runs to Nappa trying to connect with a hit but nothing works, Nappa then starts attacking, punching him in the face and smashing him in the back throwing him to the ground. In the TV version the hit to the face was cut out…

Seeing that Nappa is distracted with Tien, Piccolo plans to attack Nappa with Gohan and Krillin. While Piccolo plans this we see Tien getting his ass kicked. One scene of Nappa punching Tien in the stomach and pausing for dramatic effect are cut out…


Nappa fly’s into the air to give Tien the final blow and yells…

In the next shot we see some blood is re-colored…

Piccolo puts his plan into action. Everything goes fine until Krillin knocks Nappa towards Goha. Gohan starts to remember all the horrible things Nappa has done. In the flashback, we see an uncut version of Tien loosing his arm. Craziness! I can understand if the flashback happened a few episodes before, or something like that but, this just happened!

Nappa, affected by the attack says…

Next we see Kami talking to Popo about what’s about to happen. Kami tells Popo…

During his conversation with Popo, Kami says…

Meanwhile, Tien tries one more maneuver and musters up enough energy to hit Nappa with a “Tri Beam”. This has little to no effect on Nappa and Tien falls to the ground, dies and says…

Next, Nappa goes to attack Piccolo and Krillin. Vegeta then realizes Goku is Kakarot. Vegeta tells Nappa to stop where he is. Vegeta asks Krillin if Goku is indeed Kakarot. Krillin tells him yes it is and that when he comes you’ll be sorry, to which Vegeta replies…

Vegeta thinks this is interesting and tells Nappa to wait 3 hours for Goku to get here. Nappa eventually gets impatient and asks Vegeta…

Episode 10 ends soon after that.
