Synopsis

Dr. Raichi is the only survivor of the Tsufuru-jin (english dub - Tuffles)race, who once lived on Planet Plant, before the coming of the Saiyans. The Saiyans not only massacred the entire Tsufuru-jin race, but also stole their technology and conquered the planet, renaming it Vegeta in honor of their king. Raichi managed to escape with a capsule and found refuge on a nearby planet in a galaxy with no light, the Dark Planet. His only wish is to eradicate the last remaining Saiyans. Tsufuru-jin trying to stop the Saiyan invaders Tsufuru-jin, known in the English version as the Tuffles are a race of people in the anime series Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT. Tsufuru-jin is a play on the Japanese word for fruit (フルーツ furūtsu), continuing the pun... The Saiyans, or Saiya-jin (サイヤ人) abbreviated SJ, are a fictional, almost extinct race in the Japanese anime and manga Dragon Ball and its sequels, Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT.

To do this, Dr. Raichi puts devices on the planet that destroy all life. When Mr. Popo finds out that only a few hours are left, Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Trunks, and Piccolo rush to destroy the evil devices. They manage destroy all but one. Suddendly, Freeza, Coola, Tullece and Slug appeared and they engaged the heroes in a fight (Goku VS Cooler, Trunks VS Freeza, Gohan VS Turles and Piccolo VS Slug). It was revealed that the villains were ghost warriors, and would continually come back to life when slain, unless they were defeated in the same way they were originally killed. Mr. ...


The heroes track down Dr. Raichi to the Dark Planet and engage him, discovering that his ghost warriors are generated by a machine called Hatchhyack, a device powered by the hate of the Tsufuru-jin. It is also revealed that Dr. Raichi is also a ghost warrior, generated by Hatchhyack. When Vegeta vaporizes Raichi, preventing him from re-materializing, Hatchhyack appears in a powerful android body, said by Goku to be even more powerful than Broly. Hatchhyack devastates the heroes, until the Super Saiyans all combine their powers together into one massive wave of energy that defeats him, ending the threat of the ghost warriors.


Notes

  • This is an OVA, first released on VHS in August 1993, just after the Famicom game Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiya-jin Zetsumetsu Keikaku. Indeed, this OVA was a sort of "animated walkthrough" for the Famicom game. In 1994, the footage of this OVA was turned into a digital comic (a video game entirely made of animated sequences, in which the player's only task is to choose between several options to go to the next sequence) for the Playdia. The OVA has been re-released in 2003 in Japan as an extra feature in the "Dragon Box" DVD boxed set.
  • Returning Villains include: Tullece, Lord Slug, Freeza and Cooler.
  • Tsufuru-jin make their reappearance in Dragon Ball GT.
  • The OVA's timeline occurs after Broly, before Bojack's movie. Future Trunks has trimmed his hair, and fights with the same Saiyan armor Vegeta uses in the Android to Cell saga. Goku did mention Broly's name in the OVA. However, Goku appears to be very much alive in this OVA when he should not be do to his death in the fight with cell.
  • The box cover has Gohan posing as a Super Saiyan 2. In the OVA Gohan does not ascend to this level.
