"Surprise!! Gokū is Ginyū and Ginyū is Gokū" (ビックリ!!悟空がギニューでギニューが悟空, Bikkuri!! Gokū ga Ginyū de Ginyū ga Gokū; FUNimation "Goku is Ginyu and Ginyu is Goku") is the seventy-first episode of the Dragon Ball Z anime.


Nail leads Freeza away from Guru's place so that he can't get hurt. He starts fighting Freeza, but it seems that he was unable to hold him up though he does to give time for Dende to deliver the Dragon Balls' password to the Dragon Team. Gohan and Kuririn get the Dragon Radar from Bulma and head towards Freeza's spaceship. Meanwhile, Gokū is winning his fight against Captain Ginyu. Realizing he can't win, Captain Ginyu decides to use his special power: the Body Change. He severely wounded himself to Gokū's horror, and shoots a beam of light out of his mouth and into Gokū's: the two switch bodies. Ginyu, as Gokū, then flies back towards Freeza's spaceship, leaving Gokū in Ginyu's thrashed body behind.
