"Surprise Attack!! The Elder's Target was the Scouter" (意表をついた攻撃!!長老の狙いはスカウター, Hyō o Tsuita Kōgeki!! Chōrō no Nerai wa Sukautā; FUNimation "Namek's Defense") is the first episode of the Dragon Ball Z anime.

Overview

The evil Freeza and his henchmen try to persuade the Nameccian elder of the village to hand over the Dragon Ball by killing most of the villagers. Gohan, who can't watch the innocent Nameccians get murdered anymore, is about to fly in and save them, when three more Nameccians appear. These three are strong enough to defeat Freeza's weaker henchmen, so the evil tyrant sends one of his best fighters, Dodoria, after them.
