"Freeza Laughs" (笑うフリーザ, Warau Furīza; Viz "Freeza Victorious?!!") is the two hundred and seventy-seventh chapter of the overall Dragon Ball series, and the eighty-third chapter of Part II of the manga.
Desperation sets in as Kulilin attempts to think of something they can do to fight back against Reacoom. Recoome, who is still facing Vegeta, strikes a pose and launches his Reacoom Eraser Gun. Both Gohan and Kulilin seize the opportunity to make a move, assisting a wounded Vegeta in moving out of the way while Kulilin lands a blow to Reacoom's skull. Vegeta scolds Gohan for rescuing him instead of attacking Reacoom. Meanwhile, Reacoom recovers and attacks Kulilin for stopping his own attack.
Meanwhile, Nail—who was previously commanded to assist the Earthlings—turns back, fearing for the Saichōrō's safety. Back on the battlefield, Gohan engages Reacoom with a barrage of energy attacks, but is largely unsuccessful and is quickly subdued by the stronger fighter.
