The following idea struck me as I was watching Movie 12 for the first time a few days back. (Yes, there are still many shows I’ve not watched -.-;;;) The following scenes and dialogue were taken exactly from the movie itself, only the parts in italics, which are Vegeta’s thoughts, are my own additions.

 

The times where the following scenes occurred in the show are given in minutes and seconds. The place with spiked balls had the sign ‘Needle Hill’ pointed to it (the Japanese characters are the same as those in Chinese btw), though I didn’t know what the other place with the pinkish cubes was called.

 

‘…thoughts…’

 

Kia’s Real Reason Series: 3

 

 

The Real Reason Why Vegeta Refused to Fuse in Movie 12

 

 

(Needle Hill, 33:46)

 

Vegeta cursed fluidly as he was flung back. Jewel-bright blobs and then charcoal gray blurred and rushed forward in his vision, but before he could catch himself, he heard a familiar voice.

 

“Vegeta!”

 

Vegeta mentally cursed again as he was neatly caught by the taller Saiyan. Of all the people to save him… He lowered his head in frustrated anger but allowed the other male to hold him as they drifted down slowly through the maze of wickedly sharp spiked balls.

 

When Goku set Vegeta down on the floor though, Vegeta suddenly realized their positions; he was literally draped over the other, his left arm over the other’s right shoulder. Pulling back in anger, he snapped. “Kakarotto…! I don’t want your help! I don’t need any help with that bastard!”

 

“Aiii…” Goku smiled ruefully. “I know, but I tried to tell you how strong he was.” His eyes suddenly narrowed in anger as he straightened, turning his head to look back in the direction from where they came, where Janeba was. “He’s in a higher level.”

 

Vegeta gritted his jaw and stood up as well. (Camera pans in for a very nice crotch shot) Suddenly, his shoulders sagged a bit as he admitted in reluctant fury. “The two of us can’t beat him.”

 

“No, I have a plan that will work against him.”

 

Vegeta snapped his head up. “Wha… what?!”

 

Goku turned to look at Vegeta solemnly. “Fusion.”

 

Vegeta’s eyes widened in shock. What? Why would that baka want to… No! I must have misheard him. His eyes narrowed. “Fusion? You mean fuse into one?”

 

“Yes.” Goku turned to face Vegeta, his normally cheery expression now dead serious. Vegeta recognized that look; it was the hardened and determined look the Earth-raised Saiyan only wore when he was going into a life-or-death battle. “Fuse with me.”

 

“With you?” Vegeta fought down a flush by masking it under fury. Why now? “Idiot! That was your idea?!”

 

To his surprise, Goku became angry as well. “That’s our only shot to defeat that guy! You said there was nothing as strong as him!”

 

“Ccchhh!” The prince hissed in disgust. Does he think I’m that easy? I am the Saiyan no Ouji! And what does fusion have to do with defeating that guy? “I’d rather die than fuse with you!” He huffed and turned his nose up in the air proudly.

 

Goku sighed, and then said slowly as he pointed up to his halo. “Vegeeetah, you’re already dead!”

 

Grr…I knew that! Vegeta was stunned speechless, his right eye twitching dangerously. That was… Oh that baka! He…he… The royal finally settled on his favorite reaction to any situation and scowled darkly in anger.

 

(Skip forward to 38:10 in the show, amidst the pink jewel cubes)

 

Vegeta sat on the floor, his head bowed in defeated resignation. Janeba was just too powerful. Goku had barely managed to get them out of Needle Hill in time with his Instant Transmission Technique. “Vegeta, our time is quickly running out.”

 

He nodded, gazing dully at the pinkish reflective surface in front of him as Goku continued speaking. “Our powers are almost exactly the same. We have to get it to work! The only problem is the fusion pose.”

 

Vegeta gave a start. Pose??

 

Goku was still talking as he was looking away in Janeba’s direction with a small frown. “The two of us must be in the same exact pose to complete it.”

 

Vegeta finally looked up from the contemplation of his handsome image, his eyes widening in surprise, and asked the one biggest question that had been bugging him. “Pose?” Surely we do not need to …pose? This is the sort of thing one..two do naturally?

 

Goku stepped back. “I’ll show you all about the pose. Please try to remember it.”

 

Vegeta’s eyes narrowed as he watched the Earth-raised Saiyan carefully. Maybe they do it differently here?

 

“First of all, the two of us have to stand a distance apart while side by side. Then, do this.” Goku held out his arms to his right, perfectly straight and parallel to the ground. “We must be careful with our arm angles.”

 

And then, the tall muscular warrior shuffled neatly to his left, his feet clacking on the hard crystalline floor below as his arms moved from nine to three o’clock. “Fu….” Holding the pose with his arms outstretched, knees bent and a perfectly serious expression on his face, he went on. “The arms will face the opposing partner. At that time, move your feet towards me by three small steps.”

 

“Sion!” Swinging his arms back to the right, Goku then snapped his right knee crisply to the front and side. “Be careful with your leg angles.”

 

“Haaa!” The right leg snapped out to point to the side, forming a straight line along the leg and up the right side of his torso as he bent to his left, his right arm outstretched over his head and his left arm bent, such that both of his index fingers were now pointing to his left. “Then we have to put our fingers together. Again, be careful with your leg angles. In particular, don’t forget to extend and pin your left leg!”

 

Vegeta was aghast. “You want me to perform that?!”

 

“The pose requires left and right leg symmetry! Do you understand?”

 

“Kkkhhh…” The prince was stunned and frankly quite pissed as well, and all he could manage at that moment was a choked sound.

 

“It’s time.” Goku said solemnly. “Let’s try it for one battle.” Suddenly, he noticed that Vegeta was still turned away. “Wha…? Vegeta, what are you worried about? Didn’t you understand my explanation just now?”

 

Vegeta was still shaking in rage, shock and mortification. THAT BAKAYARO! I thought he had been propositioning to me when he said ‘fuse with me!’ I should have known he knew nothing of Saiyan customs, that mating involved a fusing of body, mind and soul. No wonder when he said fusion, I thought it was an awkward way to say sex!!

 

(39:27)

 

A/N: Lame? *laughs sheepishly* Yes, I know I’ve a one-track mind sometimes…But you’ve got to wonder… IF Vegeta knew about fusion… why did Goku have to show him the pose?? I mean, the dialogue was just too suggestive! Vegeta went along with the fusion idea, right up to the point Goku said “fusion pose”, and then he looked surprised.

 

“Fuse with me.” ß Kinky as hell.

 

“Fusion? You mean fuse into one?” ß Mental image…*blinks rapidly*

 

“Vegeta, our time is quickly running out.” ß Now, you know how people, when in the face of impending doom, have that one last thing they must do before they die?? If they have never done it before, they’ve nothing to lose now. If they’ve done it before, then it’s still a grand way to go.
