"Ferocity of the Saiyans! God and Piccolo Both Die" (サイヤ人の猛威！神様もピッコロも死んだ, Saiya-jin no Mōi! Kami-sama mo Pikkoro mo Shinda; FUNimation "Goku's Arrival") is the twenty-eighth episode of the Dragon Ball Z anime.
To save his only friend, Piccolo makes the ultimate sacrifice, and dives in front of Gohan to block Nappa's attack. As Piccolo dies, he tells Gohan that he is his only friend and how sorry he was about going so hard on him during training. With Piccolo dead, God and the Dragon Balls are also gone, meaning that no one can be wished back. When all hope seems lost for Earth, Gokū finally arrives. After giving Gohan and Kuririn a Senzu, Gokū learns what happened to his friends. Angered, Gokū takes out his frustration on the hulking Nappa.
- The original FUNimation dub of this episode would feature a mis-translation, in which Vegeta states Gokū's power level is over 9,000. This line, "It's over 9,000!" would be the birth of a longstanding meme that would go on to influence pop culture for years. In the original Japanese language anime and manga, however, Gokū's power level is stated to be over 8,000.
