Despite his renewed confidence, Goku realizes he still has no chance of victory using direct physical attacks against Frieza, who is still using only 50% of his full power. At this point, Goku decides to use his ultimate technique – the Spirit Bomb. With so little ki from living things left to absorb on Namek, Goku absorbs ki from neighboring worlds as well. Creating a Spirit Bomb of this size takes extensive time and concentration, and Frieza continues to pummel him. Piccolo decides to intervene, taking what energy Gohan and Krillin have left and attacking Frieza to draw attention away from Goku and the Spirit Bomb he is creating. Before Frieza can obliterate Goku with a beam to the forehead, Piccolo stops him with a full-force kick to the head. The now-distracted Frieza goes after Piccolo, whose attacks do nothing to faze him. The Namekian is quickly floored by Frieza as Goku continues charging the Spirit Bomb.
