Gohan immediately sets up a counter-attack, with Videl supporting him. After the short battle, Videl thinks Gohan has won, however Gohan says it isn't over yet. Tapion comes to aid Gohan and Videl by playing a magical tune on his ocarina, which weakens and Hirudegarn's bottom half, and causes it to vanish. Leaving the battlefield, Tapion comes to believe that Hoi has already killed Minosha, Tapion’s younger brother.


Later on, while Trunks is visiting Tapion, Hoi attempts to steal the ocarina from Tapion and tells Trunks that Tapion is the true monster, but Trunks doesn't believe him, and instead gives the instrument back to Tapion.

On Konack, planet in the southern galaxy of the universe, a group of black magicians, the Kash-phar, use a spell on a statue to bring the monster it depicted to life. The monster, Hirudegarn, immediately goes on a rampage, killing everyone who tries to get in his way and devastating the planet. Two young heroes, Tapion and his brother Minosha, manage to freeze the monster in his tracks by each playing their divine ocarina, giving a priest the opportunity to cut the monster in half with a divine sword. Since Hirudegarn can't be killed at the time, his upper-half is sealed in Tapion and the other half in Minosha. However, fearing that the monster might reappear someday, the brothers are separated, each sealed in a music box, and shot into opposite ends of the galaxy. The music box holding Tapion lands on Earth. Soon after, Hoi, one of the Kash-phar, becomes determined to resurrect the monster to rule the universe.

Just then Goku reappears in his powerful Super Saiyan 3 form and a battle begins between Goku and the Hirudegarn.
