Overview Dragon Ball Z is the second series in the Dragon Ball anime franchise.
In Japan it ran from 1989-1996, and was an extremely popular show, spanning a total of 291 episodes. In the original Toei Animation production of the series in Japan, the series was divided into four major plot arcs known as sagas: Saiyan Saga, Frieza Saga, Cell Saga, and Buu Saga. When Dragon Ball Z was first produced in the US, FUNimation Entertainment collaborated with Saban Entertainment to finance and distribute the series to television, sub-licensed home video distribution to Pioneer Entertainment (later known as Geneon Universal Entertainment), contracted Ocean Productions to dub the anime into English, and hired Shuki Levy to compose an alternate musical score.
This dub of Dragon Ball Z was heavily edited for content, as well as length; reducing the first 67 episodes into 53, and is often referred to as the Ocean dub or Saban dub. It aired early in the morning in 1996 for two seasons on WB and UPN affiliate networks, but was canceled in 1998. A year later after gaining newly found popularity on Toonami, the series was reconsidered for continuation. FUNimation began dubbing episodes 54 through 276 (the series finale) on their own, with their own in-house voice actors and studio equipment from September 13, 1999 to April 7, 2003.
This redub is often referred to as the FUNimation dub. In the FUNimation dub of the series, the original four sagas were furthered divided into a total of sixteen sagas: Vegeta Saga (Saiyan Saga) , Namek Saga, Captain Ginyu Saga, Frieza Saga, Garlic Jr. Saga, Trunks Saga, Androids Saga, Imperfect Cell Saga, Perfect Cell Saga, Cell Games Saga, Great Saiyaman Saga, World Tournament Saga, Babidi Saga, Majin Buu Saga, Fusion Saga, and Kid Buu Saga.
In 2004, Geneon/Pioneer Entertainment's (which owned the rights to Dragon Ball Z's home video distribution) license expired, and the rights to home video distribution of the series was acquired by FUNimation, which included the video rights to the first 53 (67 originally) episodes of the series. After acquiring the license for the first two seasons of the show, FUNimation began redubbing it with their cast in order to keep the series's dubbing consistent, and redubbed the original uncut 67 episodes of the series.
FUNimation then announced that they would release these 67 uncut episodes in the Ultimate Uncut Special Edition DVD line, releasing the first DVD on April 12, 2005. However this DVD set was canceled before every episode was released, in favor of the soon-to-come FUNimation Remastered Box Sets. But all 67 uncut episodes of Dragon Ball Z were later aired on Cartoon Network, beginning on June 14, 2005 and continuing throughout the Summer.

Gokū no Yume wa Chō Dekkē) January 31, 1996 291 Edited episode listings The Ocean dub of Dragon Ball Z was FUNimation's first English dub track of the Franchise, with only the first two seasons of the show dubbed.
The Ocean dub of the series, which was marketed to children, was notable for heavily censoring the show: getting rid of most references to death and editing out overly violent scenes. The episodes were so heavily edited that while the first two seasons were comprised of 67 episodes in the Japanese dub, FUNimation shortened the first two seasons to 53 episodes (or 56 episodes if the Tree of Might three parter is counted).
These 53 episodes were also later redubbed by FUNimation for TV broadcast, in addition to their DVD-only uncut dubs of the original 67 episodes. After the Ocean Group dubbing of the first two-season, the series was then immediately dubbed by FUNimation's in house voice actors, starting from episode 54. See the FUNimation Uncut Episode Listings further below for more information on the FUNimation dub.

Gohan then breaks out of Raditz's space pod and with his power raised by his anger, bashes into Raditz, giving Goku the time to grab onto him and allow Piccolo to charge up his new technique, the Special Beam Cannon.
4 Goku's Unusual Journey Friday October 4, 1996 5 Piccolo hits both Raditz and Goku with his Special Beam Cannon, killing them both. Before he dies, Raditz reveals his two Saiyan partners, Vegeta and Nappa will arrive on Earth in one year.

Goku and Vegeta then begin to fight. 23 Goku vs. Vegeta... A Saiyan Duel! Saturday May 3, 1997 30 Vegeta is the superior at the beginning of their fight, and not even the Kaio-ken x2 is enough for Goku to gain the upper hand.
Desperate, Goku uses the Kaio-ken x3 and overpowers Vegeta. Enraged, Vegeta attempts to destroy the planet with his Galick Gun, but Goku counters it with his Kamehameha and overpowers Vegeta's blast by adding the Kaio-ken x4. Still angry, Vegeta creates an artificial moon and transforms into a Great Ape. 24 Vegeta... Saiyan Style! Saturday May 10, 1997 31 As a Great Ape, Vegeta begins toying with Goku.

FUNimation uncut episode listings Following Season 2, FUNimation replaced the Canadian Ocean cast with their own non-union Texas-based cast. FUNimation's in-house cast began voicing the episodes beginning at episode 54 (the beginning of season 3, the Captain Ginyu Saga) where the Ocean Group left off. While the first two Ocean-voiced seasons were heavily censored by FUNimation, the in-house dub was not, this was because the series had shifted from syndication to the less strict cable channel Cartoon Network.
FUNimation's in-house talent continued to dub the series from episode 54 until the series finale at episode 276 (episode 291 uncut, as explained below). In the UK, AB Groupe hired the Ocean talent to create an alternate English dub for episodes 108-276 (123-292 uncut). This concurrent dub used the same scripts and episode titles as FUNimation's in-house dub. Because the independent FUNimation dub began at episode 54, it was not until several years later that FUNimation acquired the rights to seasons 1 and 2 from their former distributor Geneon.
After receiving the rights to the first two seasons, FUNimation redubbed the original shortened 53 episodes with their own voice actors for TV Broadcast. They planned to release these uncut episodes in the Ultimate Uncut series of DVDs with the first volume available in April 2005. However, this DVD set was never completed, and the 67 uncut episodes (along with the other 224 episodes of the series) were instead later released in the FUNimation Remastered Box Sets.
However, all 67 uncut episodes were also aired on Cartoon Network in the summer of 2005 beginning in June, two years after the finale of the series on Toonami.

With Vegeta's mind set on reaching the same seemingly unreachable goal, Goku takes him, Trunks and Gohan to Kami's Lookout, to train in the mysterious Hyperbolic Time Chamber, a room where one year in there, is equivalent to that of a day in the real world. Meanwhile, the androids face an unexpected and unforeseen issue, Goku's not home. With the androids now closing in on Master Roshi's island, can anything stop the destructive trio of despair? 148 The Monster is Coming Monday October 16, 2000 148 Piccolo begins his epic battle against 17, and he seems to be on par with the mechanical monster, meanwhile Bulma continues to work on the remote that will shut down the Androids.

As the battle rages on, it is easily noticeable that 16 is just as strong as Cell. Knowing the fight is at a stalemate Cell uses a desperate attempt to absorb 16 into his being, but due to the way 16 was built Cell is unable to complete the Androids demise. Android 16 proceeds to rip off Cell tail, ensuring that the greedy monster could never absorb anyone ever again, but Cell has Piccolo's regenerative ability, and instantly regrows his deadly tail.
Can the silent giant 16 defeat Cell, and if not who can, perhaps this fight will buy Vegeta and Trunks the precious time they need to complete their training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. 152 Say Goodbye, 17 Friday October 20, 2000 152 16 beats Cell continuously not letting up for a second. But unconvinced of Cell's demise quickly tucks his hands under his arms removing them and exposing his blasters.
As a finishing move to destroy Cell he unleashes a barrage of beams into Cell. 16 urges 17 and 18 to escape while they still can sensing Cell is still alive. But their cocky attitudes cause them to believe that the attack was more than powerful enough to kill Cell. Suddenly Cell slowly rises out of the hole behind him while the arrogant 17 laughs maliciously. The unsuspecting android is now caught in Cell's grasp and was soon to be absorbed.
Then 17 gets sucked into Cell's tail and is forcibly pushed through it and into his back. Just then in a tremendous dimension shattering light, Cell starts to transform into an ugly, yet very powerful form. He then turns towards 16 and 18 hungry for more. 16 grabs 18 and flies away in a drastic attempt to escape but the newly transformed Cell merely teleports in front of him. The shocked 16 is paralyzed with fright and on a whim Cell punches him in the head with so much force it breaks one whole side of his face exposing his parts.
Android 16 flies a great distance and lies motionless on the ground, circuits crackling and all. Before Cell can absorb 18 however, Tien jumps into the fray and blasts Cell with his Tri-Beam. Perfect Cell Saga Main article: Perfect Cell Saga Ep# Title Original airdate Production code 153 Sacrifice Monday October 23, 2000 153 Tien rapidly fires his Tri-Beam, which is able to keep Cell down, allowing the androids to escape to safety, but he soon starts losing his energy.

That's no easy task, especially for a kid! 157 Hour of Temptation Friday October 27, 2000 157 Goku and Gohan continue to push themselves forward, but will they even be needed? In his powered up state, Vegeta is quickly pounding Cell six feet into the ground! With his back against the wall, the ever-clever android attacks Vegeta's weakest point, his unbridled arrogance! Can the Saiyan Prince resist Cell's tempting challenge? 158 Krillin's Decision Monday October 30, 2000 158 With the beautiful 18 in his sights, Krillin clutches the controller that will shut down the android forever.
But at the moment of decision, Krillin hesitates! Cell looms just overhead, hungry for perfection. Can Krillin find the courage to do the right thing, or will his emotions cloud his judgement? 159 The Last Defense Tuesday October 31, 2000 159 With the remote control smashed and Vegeta giving Cell the go ahead, the stage is set is for Cell's terrifying completion. Now it's up to Trunks and Krillin to save 18 from Cell's power-hungry grasp, but Vegeta isn't going to let Trunks ruin his plan.

He launches it, and it proves very effective, Cell's right arm is completely destroyed. Vegeta begins laughing but his celebration is quickly cut short when he learns that Cell possesses Piccolo's regenerative ability. Cell resumes the fight and knocks Vegeta down as Trunks begins to power up. 163 Saving Throw Monday November 6, 2000 163 Vegeta lies unconscious after an intense battle with Cell, and Trunks unleashes his hidden powers to save his father's life.
With Goku and Gohan still training and the other fighters clearly out-leagued, Trunks is the only person standing in the evil android's way. Just how far can the young Saiyan's power go? 164 Ghosts from Tomorrow Tuesday November 7, 2000 164 As apocalyptic visions haunt his mind, Trunks vows to stop his horrible future from repeating itself. But Cell remembers those dark days in a different light, and can't wait for history to follow its course.

Whose will it be? 165 The Cell Games Wednesday November 8, 2000 165 Trunks finally realizes that his new Super Saiyan level, while very powerful, leaves him depleted of speed, which Goku, who has achieved the same power back in the Time Chamber, also confirms.

182 Gohan's Desperate Plea Thursday December 7, 2000 182 Gohan and Cell continue their fight, with Gohan realizing why his dad put him out. He wants him to get mad, so that his power will explode. Gohan then warns Cell and tells him about the times his hidden power erupted; Gohan alone, still 5 and a half years old, had weakened Raditz horribly. Only a year and a bit later, he had close to killed Frieza in his 2nd stage.
But, Cell is not worried. He now has a new goal. To unleash Gohan's power, and have a real fight with Gohan. He begins to beat up Gohan even worse, but, Gohan is afraid of destroying Cell, and his real power will not show itself. 183 Android Explosion Monday December 11, 2000 183 Android 16 watches as Gohan is slowly being defeated.

Gohan punches Cell twice, significantly damaging him. 187 Cell's Mighty Breakdown Monday December 18, 2000 187 Cell continues his desperate attack, and fires a massive Kamehameha at Gohan.
Gohan is able to counter it with his own Kamehameha, having learned the technique from his father, and leaves Cell in a vulnerable position, but he neglects to kill him and keeps toying with him. Unable to beat Gohan at his present state, Cell bulks up his muscles, increasing his strength, but he has forgotten that this is the same mistake Trunks made, and although he is stronger, he is also much slower.
Gohan punches Cell, and he is violently sick, causing him to cough up the source of his power, Android 18 and turn back into Semi-Perfect Cell. 188 A Hero's Farewell Tuesday December 19, 2000 188 When he realizes Gohan is too strong, Cell decides to explode, destroying earth.

Wednesday December 20, 2000 189 Due to the Saiyan blood in Cell, his power has increased even more than before. Vegeta has had enough, he may have let Cell get away with everything thus far, but taking the life of his son is just too much for the Saiyan prince to handle, he goes Super Saiyan and attacks Cell with everything he has, but Cell proves he is far too powerful to be stopped now.
Just as Cell is about to finish Vegeta off, Gohan launches himself in front of the attack, saving Vegeta, but rendering his left arm useless. 190 The Horror Won't End Thursday December 21, 2000 190 An injured Gohan gives up hope until Goku starts encouraging him from the Other World. After Cell's amazing, yet shocking return, he begins the fight with Gohan again. He is much stronger now, because of the Saiyan ability to gain power when recovered from a serious attack, and beats up Gohan.

They then realize that they can use a wish from the Namekian Dragon Balls to revive him, but they hear Goku from the Other World, and he says not to wish him back. He tells them that every time they were fighting somebody, like Frieza and Cell, they were always after Goku. He thinks that the earth is much safer without him there, and that they can handle anything because of Gohan's new strength. With that Goku bids farewell to his son and friends, and they remembered what they like the most about him.
193 One More Wish Thursday December 28, 2000 193 Krillin uses the final wish to take the bomb out of Android 18, purely because that he has fallen in love with her. Gohan and the others descend from Kami's lookout, preparing to celebrate the newly restored peace, while Chi-Chi tries to cope with the loss of her husband, Goku. Trunks says a final farewell to his parents and heads downstream through the mystical river of time.
He then begins to concentrate on the serious tasks that await him upon arrival in the dreaded future that almost was. Meanwhile, Hercule begins to take all the undeserved glory for Cell's defeat, and it appears that only Gohan's family and friends know the actual truth, but Gohan doesn't seem at all bothered, he and the Ox-King are too busy sneaking away from Chi-Chi. Along Snake Way, Goku and King Kai decide it's time for them to settle down and find a suitable place to live, so King Kai begins constructing their new home.

Once there he learns they are still destroying the unprotected towns and cities. Knowing he can defeat the ruthless pair after travelling through time and raising his power level significantly, Trunks sets off and arrives without a moment to spare.
He quickly distracts Android 17, disabling him from destroying an old man whose son was another victim of the merciless machines. The androids appear confident, but Trunks quickly puts them in their place, and gains vengeance for his master Gohan by giving Android 18 a taste of her own medicine. Android 17 begins to realize his fate will soon reach the same outcome, and he too is destroyed. Trunks knows that despite the androids death, the threat is not over, there is another, Cell.
Sure enough, Cell reveals himself and plans to take control of Trunks' time machine, but the young Super Saiyan is not about to stand by and let it happen. Trunks promises he will not let Goku down, and true to his word he annihilates every last cell of Cell. Meanwhile, up in the Other World, Goku accidentally destroys his new home and he and King Kai prepare to take a trip to the Grand Kai's planet.

Japanese promotional poster for Dragon Ball Z Kai Dragon Ball Z Kai (known in Japan as Dragon Ball Kai) is a revised version of the anime series Dragon Ball Z. It was produced in commemoration of the original series' 20th and 25th anniversaries. Produced by Toei Animation, the series was broadcast in Japan on Fuji TV from April 5, 2009 to March 27, 2011. It later continued with the final story arc from April 6, 2014 to June 28, 2015.
It features remastered high definition picture, sound, and special effects as well as a re-recorded voice track by most of the original cast. As most of the series' sketches and animation cels had been discarded since the final episode of Dragon Ball Z in 1996, new frames were produced by digitally tracing over still frames from existing footage and filling them with softer colors. This reduced visible damage to the original animation.
Some frames were selectively cropped, while other frames feature new portions added to scenes that were hand drawn to conform to the designated picture ratio. Much of the material from the Dragon Ball Z anime that was not featured in the Dragon Ball manga has been left out in Kai, which reduced the total episode count from 291 to 167. However, the second part of the series, titled Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters by Toei Europe, lasted 61 episodes in Japan, which was fewer than the previously planned 69.
 This brought the total number of episodes to 159 in Japan. The first Blu-ray and DVD compilation was released in Japan on September 18, 2009. Individual volumes and Blu-ray box sets were released monthly. France was the first international country to release all 167 episodes on Blu-ray and DVD, while the bypassed episodes remain unreleased in Japan. Episode list Season 1: Saiyan Saga (2009) No.

Kaette Kita zo Son Gokū" (闘いの幕開け! 帰ってきたぞ孫悟空) April 5, 2009 May 24, 2010 The series begins with a flashback of the destruction of Planet Vegeta at the hands of Frieza, and the upbringing of Goku on Earth as depicted in the original Dragon Ball series.
Five years have passed since Goku's victory over Piccolo at the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, and he has since married Chi-Chi and now has a son named Gohan. Goku and Gohan are heading towards a reunion with Goku's friends at Master Roshi's island. Elsewhere, an odd-looking spacecraft crash lands on Earth. A man in battle armor emerges from the vessel and flies off to scout out a powerful life form he locates with the help of an apparatus on his eye.
Piccolo is nearly killed by the stranger, but this is averted when the man leaves to scout out a more powerful life form. The other strong life form is Goku, who at the Kame House presents his son to Roshi, Krillin, and Bulma. The stranger arrives and surprises everyone when they notice he has a monkey-like tail, just like Goku used to have. 2 "The Enemy is Goku's Brother?! The Secret of the Mighty Saiyan Warriors""Teki wa Gokū no Ani!? Saikyō Senshi Saiyajin no Himitsu" (敵は悟空の兄!? 最強戦士サイヤ人の秘密) April 12, 2009 May 24, 2010 The stranger says that his name is Raditz, and that he is Goku's older brother.
Goku cannot remember this, as he had suffered from brain damage caused by a fall when he was a child. Raditz reports that he and Goku are of an alien race called the Saiyans and that he and Goku are among the last four remaining. Raditz then asks Goku to join them in exterminating the population of Earth, taking Gohan hostage when Goku refuses. Piccolo appears and offers to help Goku defeat Raditz; Goku accepts his offer and together they follow after Raditz.
Goku and Piccolo confront the Saiyan at his space pod's crash site, but Raditz is not impressed and tells them that the other two remaining Saiyans are even stronger than he is. 3 "A Life-or-Death Battle! Goku and Piccolo's Ferocious Suicide Attack" / "A Life or Death Battle! Goku and Piccolo's Desperate Attack!""Inochi o Kaketa Tatakai! Gokū to Pikkoro Sutemi no Mōkō" (命をかけた闘い! 悟空とピッコロ捨て身の猛攻) April 19, 2009 May 25, 2010 Goku and Piccolo are no match for Raditz in direct conflict, so they decide to have Goku distract Raditz while Piccolo gathers energy for an attack strong enough to defeat Raditz.
This plan fails, as does Goku's attempt to stop Raditz by grabbing his tail ends when Goku gets tricked by his brother. Raditz tortures Goku, causing Gohan to unleash his latent abilities in a fit of rage, and he strikes Raditz in the chest. Goku uses this opportunity to grab Raditz from behind, allowing Piccolo to use his Makankosappo technique on Raditz - killing them both. Before he succumbs to his wound, Raditz tells his enemies that the other Saiyans will arrive on Earth within a year.
Bulma, Krillin, and Master Roshi arrive to witness Goku's death. 4 "Run in the Afterlife, Son Goku! The Million Kilometer Serpent Road!" / "Run in the Afterlife, Goku! The One Million Mile Snake Way""Anoyo de Hashire Son Gokū! Hyaku-man Kiro no Hebi no Michi" (あの世で走れ孫梧空! 100万キロの蛇の道) April 26, 2009 May 25, 2010 Kami takes Goku along with his body to the Other World.
Bulma takes Raditz's scouter in order to repair it and find Yamcha, Tien Shinhan, and Chiaotzu. Piccolo takes Gohan into his custody and flies off, intending to train the boy in preparation for the two Saiyans' arrival. In Other World, Kami arranges for Goku to be allowed to travel to King Kai via the million-mile-long Snake Way; King Kai will then train Goku in advanced fighting techniques, in hopes that by the time he is re-animated Goku will be strong enough to face the new Saiyans who are heading towards Earth.
While Goku starts his journey along the long road, Krillin unsuccessfully attempts to tell Chi-Chi of her husband's death and her son's kidnapping. Meanwhile, Piccolo tells Gohan of his father's fate. Gohan doubts that he has any significant intrinsic power, so Piccolo uses a dramatic method to demonstrate Gohan's hidden power - he throws Gohan at a rock, which Gohan destroys reflexively. 5 "Wilderness Survival! A Moonlit Night Awakens Gohan""Kōya no Sabaibaru! Tsukiyo ga Gohan o Yobisamasu" (荒野のサバイバル! 月夜が悟飯を呼び覚ます) May 3, 2009 May 26, 2010 Gohan's survival training begins.
After a length of time spent alone on a mountaintop, Gohan looks at the full moon, which causes him to transform into a Saiyan "Great Ape." Rather than let him rampage unchecked, Piccolo destroys the moon, making any further transformations impossible for both Gohan and the other Saiyans, and removes Gohan's Saiyan tail, before leaving to begin his own training. Meanwhile, Bulma repairs the scouter, and Yajirobe delivers a summons to Krillin, telling him that the two of them, along with Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu, are to report to Kami's Lookout for training.
6 "The End of the Line is Reached! Playful Trials of Kaiosama" / "The End of Snake Way! King Kai's Bizarre Test!""Tadori Tsuita Shūten! Kaiōsama no Ochame na Shiren" (辿り着いた終点!界王様のおちゃめな試練) May 10, 2009 May 26, 2010 Six months have passed since Gohan's incident with the full moon, and he has since become much more adept at surviving in the wilderness. Piccolo then begins training the boy personally in martial arts.
Meanwhile, Goku has arrived at the end of Snake Way, meeting King Kai on his planet, which, despite its small size, has ten-times Earth's gravity. In order for Goku to train under King Kai's teachings, he must attempt to make the master laugh. After Goku's accomplishment of making him laugh, King Kai tells Goku to catch his pet monkey, Bubbles. This proves to be a difficult task for Goku due to the planet's intense gravity, but he is persistent and refuses to give up.
7 "The Battle With 10-Times Gravity! Goku, Your Training is a Race" / "The Battle with Ten-Times Gravity! Goku's Race Against the Clock!""Jū-bai Jūryoku to Tatakae! Gokū yo Shugyō wa Kakekko da" (10倍重力と闘え!悟空よ修行はかけっこだ) May 17, 2009 May 27, 2010 After three weeks, Goku succeeds in catching Bubbles. He is then issued his second challenge, to hit Gregory, the flying grasshopper, with a large mallet.
After two weeks of trying, Goku succeeds and fully masters the planet's gravity in the process. King Kai then proceeds to teach Goku his signature technique: the Kaio-ken. On Earth, Gohan's training with Piccolo comes to a close, while the rest of the Z Fighters finish their training with Kami and go their separate ways. 8 "Come Forth, Shenlong! The Saiyans Finally Arrive on Earth" / "Shenron Appears! The Saiyans Arrive Sooner than Expected!""Ide yo Shenron! Saiyajin Tsui ni Chikyū Tōchaku" (いでよ神龍!サイヤ人ついに地球到着) May 24, 2009 May 27, 2010 King Kai has also taught Goku the Spirit Bomb technique, and tests Goku's ability to create a Spirit Bomb with a large brick as a target; Goku destroys it with no problems.
However, King Kai warns Goku of the potential danger of creating a Spirit Bomb on Earth. So Goku decides to only use it as a last resort. With his training complete, Goku is ready to be resurrected. Only then is it revealed that the Saiyans will be arriving sooner than the expected; additionally, King Kai had forgotten to allow sufficient time for Goku to travel back along Snake Way to reach Earth before the Saiyans arrive there.
Goku sends an urgent telepathic message to Master Roshi via King Kai's telepathy, insisting that the Dragon Balls be used to resurrect him with all possible haste. On Earth, Roshi, Bulma, and Oolong summon the Eternal Dragon Shenron and fulfill Goku's wish. Goku then begins the long journey back along Snake Way; with all of his training, increased strength and speed, and new techniques, the return journey will be far quicker than the original.
The next day, the Saiyans Vegeta and Nappa land on Earth to begin their search for the Dragon Balls. 9 "Yamucha's Struggle! The Terrible Saibaimen" / "Yamcha's Struggle! The Terrible Saibamen!""Yamucha Funtō! Osoru Beshi Saibaiman" (ヤムチャ奮闘!おそるべし栽培マン) May 31, 2009 June 1, 2010 Vegeta and Nappa emerge from their two space pods and Nappa wipes out Metro East with a single blast.
The two Saiyans then fly off towards the island where Piccolo and Gohan have been training. Krillin arrives first, and the three face off with Vegeta and Nappa. Piccolo learns for the first time that he is a Namekian, a member of an alien race from the planet called Namek, when told by Nappa. At Vegeta's order, Nappa plants seeds in the ground, and six Saibamen are born. Tien, Chiaotzu, and then Yamcha fly in to join in the battle.
Vegeta suggests they have a game of one-on-one and instructs the Saibamen to use all of their power during their fights. Tien faces off first against a Saibaman. Tien overpowers the Saibaman, but before he's able to finish it off, Vegeta accuses the Saibaman of having held back his full power and subsequently destroys the Saibaman as incentive to the remaining five to obey the order to use their full strength.
Next, Yamcha decides to fight in place of Krillin; the Saibaman latches onto him and self-destructs, killing Yamcha. 10 "Sit Tight, Chaozu! The Screaming Kikoho of Tenshinhan" / "Sit Tight, Chiaotzu! Tien's Screaming Tri-Beam!""Matte ro Chaozu! Tenshinhan Zekkyō no Kikōhō" (待ってろ餃子! 天津飯絶叫の気功砲) June 7, 2009 June 2, 2010 Nappa faces off against the Z Fighters and proves to be a formidable opponent.
During Nappa's attack, Tien loses his arm. In an act of desperation, Chiaotzu attaches himself to Nappa's back and sacrifices himself using a kamikaze technique, but Nappa is unharmed by it. Grief stricken by Chiaotzu's sacrifice, Tien uses his Tri-Beam technique on Nappa, but this also fails, and Tien dies of exhaustion as a result. With the Z Fighters now down three, the team can do nothing but hope for Goku's arrival, which is expected in three hours.
The Saiyans soon learn of this trump card and scoff at the notion that any one new fighter could change the course of the battle, until Krillin informs the duo of Goku's special training. Intrigued by the possibility of challenging a newly strengthened Goku, Vegeta issues a three-hour reprieve to wait for Goku to arrive. 11 "Will Son Goku Be in Time?! 3 Hours Until the Battle Resumes" / "Will Goku Make it in Time?! Three Hours Until the Battle Resumes!""Maniau ka Son Gokū!? Sentō Saikai Made Sanjikan" (間に合うか孫悟空!? 戦闘再開まで3時間) June 14, 2009 June 3, 2010 Goku fails to arrive within the three-hour reprieve and the battle with the Saiyans recommences.
At that moment however, Goku finally reaches the end of Snake Way, is teleported back to Earth by Kami, and flies straight to the battlefield on the Nimbus Cloud. Upon sensing Goku's impending arrival on his scouter and discovering that Goku's power level is now far greater than before, Vegeta orders Nappa to kill the remaining Z Fighters, including Piccolo. The Saiyans reveal that they came to Earth for the specific purpose of obtaining and using Earth's Dragon Balls, which they learned about by monitoring Raditz's conversations while he was on Earth.
Vegeta says that he and Nappa can later go to Planet Namek and use the original Namekian Dragon Balls to wish for immortality for Vegeta, since Earth's Dragon Balls have already been recently used. Nappa fires a powerful ki blast at Gohan, but Piccolo jumps in the way at the last second to shield Gohan from the blast. 12 "Tears Shed by Piccolo... Son Goku's Furious Counterattack!" / "Farewell, Piccolo! Goku's Furious Counterattack!""Pikkoro ga Nagashi ta Namida.
.. Son Gokū Ikari no Dai Hangeki!" (ピッコロが流した涙…孫悟空怒りの大反撃!) June 21, 2009 June 7, 2010 Piccolo dies from Nappa's ki blast, resulting in Kami's death and the destruction of Earth's Dragon Balls. However, Goku finally arrives at the battlefield just in time to save Gohan and Krillin. After healing the two with a Senzu bean from Korin, Goku engages Nappa in battle.
Despite the mighty Nappa's efforts, it quickly becomes clear that he is no match for Goku's new level of power. Realizing this, Vegeta finally decides to step into the fight. 13 "This is the Kaioken! The Critical Battle of Goku vs. Vegeta" / "The Power of the Kaio-Ken! Goku vs. Vegeta!""Kore ga Kaiōken da!! Genkai Batoru no Gokū tai Bejīta" (これが界王拳だ!! 限界バトルの悟空VSべジータ) June 28, 2009 June 8, 2010 With Vegeta ready to enter the fight, Nappa realizes that he has lost, and prepares to attack Gohan and Krillin.
However, Goku disables Nappa by using his new Kaio-ken technique. With his partner now useless, Vegeta launches Nappa into the sky and mercilessly kills him with a powerful ki blast. Goku tells Gohan and Krillin to leave so he can fight Vegeta without distraction. After moving to a new battleground, the last two Saiyans begin their epic battle. However, Vegeta is much more powerful than Nappa was, and Goku eventually realizes that even the two-times Kaio-ken isn't enough to defeat his opponent.
He then decides to break his promise to King Kai and use the three-times Kaio-ken. 14 "The Impact of the Kamehameha! Vegeta's Tenacious Transformation" / "An All-Out Kamehame-Ha! Vegeta's Terrible Transformation!""Gekitotsu Kamehameha! Bejīta Shūnen no Dai-henshin" (激突かめはめ波! ベジータ執念の大変身) July 5, 2009 June 9, 2010 Goku powers up with the three-times Kaio-ken and attacks Vegeta with his increased power and speed.
Vegeta is filled with rage as he's realized that Goku's power level exceeds his own, so he attempts to destroy Earth with his Galick Gun technique. Goku counters this with the Kamehameha blast and overcomes Vegeta's blast by using the four-times Kaio-ken. Vegeta then searches for the moon to transform into a Great Ape and increase his power level. Realizing the moon has been destroyed, Vegeta releases a ball of ki that simulates the moon, and absorbs its Blutz Waves to transform into a Great Ape, which multiplies his power level by 10.
Krillin and Gohan sense Vegeta's increased power and decide to return to help Goku. 15 "Goku in Absolute Peril! Entrust Your Wishes to the Genki Dama" / "Goku on the Ropes! Pin Your Hopes on the Spirit Bomb!""Zettai Zetsumei no Gokū! Genki Dama ni Negai o Takuse" (絶体絶命の悟空! 元気玉に願いを託せ) July 12, 2009 June 10, 2010 Goku uses Tien's Solar Flare technique to blind the Great Ape Vegeta in order to buy time to create a Spirit Bomb, but Vegeta attacks Goku the instant he finishes gathering ki.
Even in his battered state, Goku manages to wound Vegeta's eye, but he ends up with Vegeta crushing him in his hand and breaking most of his body and bones in the process. While hiding, Gohan and Krillin watch the fight and try to come up with a plan to cut off Vegeta's tail. They fail, but Yajirobe seizes an opening and severs Vegeta's tail with his sword, forcing Vegeta to revert into his original form.
Vegeta then angrily confronts Gohan, who is reluctant to fight at first, until he gets support from Goku. Goku then entrusts Krillin with the remaining ki from the Spirit Bomb. 16 "The Invincible Vegeta Defeated! Son Gohan Summons a Miracle" / "Defeat the Invincible Vegeta! Work a Miracle, Gohan!""Datō Fujimi no Bejīta! Kiseki o Okose Son Gohan" (打倒不死身のベジータ! 奇跡を起こせ孫悟飯) July 19, 2009 June 14, 2010 Krillin throws the Spirit Bomb at Vegeta, but the Saiyan Prince manages to dodge it at the last second.
Following Goku's advice, Gohan rebounds the Spirit Bomb back at Vegeta, though, surprisingly, Vegeta survives the hit. Before Vegeta can finish the Z Fighters off, however, Gohan's tail suddenly grows back, and he transforms into a Great Ape, thanks to the artificial moon Vegeta had created earlier. After being thrashed around by the Great Ape, Vegeta cuts Gohan's tail off in mid-air, but Gohan falls on top of him as he turns back to normal, crushing the Saiyan Prince to the brink of death.
Finally defeated, Vegeta summons his space pod and attempts to escape, but Krillin grabs Yajirobe's sword and prepares to finish Vegeta off. 17 "Dawn of the Fierce Battle...

He asks Krillin to allow Vegeta to live, as Goku wishes to train harder and challenge Vegeta again in honorable combat. Krillin reluctantly agrees and Vegeta leaves Earth. Master Roshi, Bulma, Chi-Chi, and Korin fly to where Goku, Gohan, and Krillin are. They gather their injured, and the bodies of their deceased friends, and set off to the hospital. Krillin informs them that Kami is a Namekian, and that the planet Namek should have more inhabitants able to create Dragon Balls.
After brainstorming on how to get there in a reasonable amount of time, they realize that Nappa's space pod is still a working vessel. Bulma decides to run it through some tests and see if it's still viable. 18 "The Spaceship that Sleeps in Yunzabit! Blast Off for Planet Namek" / "The Ship Resting in Yunzabit!

Their friends and family come visit. When the television is turned on, they see a report about Nappa's space pod. Bulma presses a button on the spaceship's remote control which she thinks will summon it to them, but instead it self-destructs the pod. Before everyone gives up hope, Mr. Popo arrives, and tells them that he knows of another spaceship. It's the Namekian ship that Kami used to come to earth when he was a boy.
Bulma reluctantly agrees to inspect it up in Yunzabit Heights with him. They realize the craft is voice-activated in the native Namekian language. Bulma converts the language to English in a few weeks and learns how to use the ship; Gohan and Krillin deciding to accompany her on her journey to Planet Namek in search for the Namekian Dragon Balls. 19 "A Formidable New Enemy!

Vegeta is incensed and decides to chase Frieza to Namek to try to use the Dragon Balls for himself. After 30 days aboard Kami's old spaceship, Bulma, Krillin, and Gohan arrive on Namek. Bulma uses her radar and notices that four of the seven Dragon Balls are together already.
Gohan senses an evil presence, but Bulma is more optimistic and believes that the Namekians probably are the ones who have them. They notice Vegeta's space pod fly overhead and land in the distance, along with a second space pod shortly thereafter. Vegeta is not too thrilled to find out that Frieza's henchmen Zarbon and Dodoria are accompanying Frieza. 20 "Rebellion Against Freeza! Vegeta, Burning with Ambition" / "The Rebellion Against Frieza!

After eating one of the beans, making a complete recovery from his injuries in the process, Goku immediately prepares to journey towards Planet Namek himself. 21 "Protect the Dragon Balls!

Goku begins to train at 20-times Earth's gravity as he takes off for Namek. Meanwhile, the Namekians begin to fight back against Frieza's men, however Zarbon and Dodoria prove too powerful.
Discovering that their people are being located via their scouters, the Namekians destroy the scouters. Dodoria, filled with rage, vows to make the locals regret the day they ever crossed Frieza. 22 "Dodoria in Terrifying Hot Pursuit! Vegeta Learns the Truth" / "Dodoria's Terrifying Chase!

Gohan and Krillin lower their ki enough to avoid being detected further, but Dende doesn't know how to. Before Vegeta can home in on Dende's power, though, a giant Namekian fish appears, giving Vegeta the thought that it was the source of ki he detected - he has not yet completely mastered all of the subtlties of sensing energy without a scouter. He later comes across a village of 20 or so Namekians, and demands to be given the Dragon Ball.
When the elder Namekian of the village denies him the Dragon Ball, Vegeta slays all the Namekians and finds the Dragon Ball in one of the huts. He then proceeds to throw it in a nearby lake so that Frieza and his men cannot find it. Meanwhile, Dende takes Krillin with him to see the Grand Elder of Namek. 24 "Resurrected Companions!

Vegeta appears to be winning when Zarbon reveals a transformation that powers him up immensely, shifting the battle in his favor. Meanwhile, King Kai informs Goku via telepathy that Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu, and Piccolo have arrived at his planet in the Other World to receive training, much as Goku did when he died. After learning that Frieza is the tyrant terrorizing Planet Namek, King Kai warns Goku to stay away at all costs as he fears that no one is powerful enough to defeat the mighty Frieza.

The Elder speaks with them about the dragon balls, his ailing health, and the need for someone to help his Namekian children. He telepathically reads Krillin's past and learns of the history of Kami, including how Piccolo is the evil portion of Kami which Kami shed in order to become the Guardian of Earth. The Elder also learns that Krillin's intentions are pure, and that he has dormant power, which the Elder awakens.
Krillin's power increases dramatically and he asks the Elder if Gohan can also have his dormant power awakened, to which the Elder replies yes. Meanwhile, Zarbon reports to Frieza that he has defeated Vegeta, even though Vegeta's corpse was not found. Frieza condemns Zarbon for destroying Vegeta as he thinks Vegeta has a Dragon Ball hidden and needs Vegeta to reveal its location, so he sends Zarbon to retrieve Vegeta and bring him back to the ship to heal.
Zarbon finds Vegeta still alive and places him in a rejuvenation chamber inside Frieza's spaceship. 26 "The Conspiracy Completely Shatters!

Gyakushū no Bejīta tai Zābon" (砕け散れ陰謀! 逆襲のベジータVSザーボン) October 4, 2009 June 30, 2010 Vegeta is fully rejuvenated and conceives a plan to steal the five Dragon Balls where Frieza has been keeping them.
He severely damages the ship with a single blast and throws all five dragon balls out of the ship. Meanwhile, Krillin arrives back at the Capsule House with a Dragon Ball that the Grand Elder had given him. Both Vegeta and Zarbon have followed him; the two quickly begin battling over possession of the dragon ball. Meanwhile, Gohan heads toward the village Vegeta attacked, discovering that there is still a Dragon Ball there.
Eventually, Zarbon is killed by Vegeta, and Gohan retrieves the Dragon Ball which Vegeta had hidden in the lake and begins heading back to Bulma and the camp.

While returning to his stashed Dragon Balls, Vegeta senses Gohan. Gohan also senses Vegeta, so he masks his ki and hides his newly found Dragon Ball. Vegeta eventually coaxes Gohan out but doesn't see the hidden Dragon Ball. Thinking he has all seven Dragon Balls, Vegeta lets Gohan live and takes off. After returning to the nearby Namekian lake, Vegeta realizes Gohan had taken his hidden Dragon Ball and goes berserk.
Meanwhile, Frieza is informed that the Ginyu Force, an elite fighting team, will be arriving shortly, bringing much needed state-of-the art scouters as well as extensive fighting strength. Goku continues his training at intense gravity levels within his spaceship. 28 "The Super Decisive Battle Draws Near! The Ginyu Special-Squad Has Arrived!" / "The Countdown to Battle Begins!

October 18, 2009 July 7, 2010 Krillin takes Gohan to see the Grand Elder to have his inner power released.
However, Vegeta senses them while they are flying toward the tower, and confronts them. Nail informs the trio of a powerful evil force approaching the planet. Vegeta knows it is the Ginyu Force, Frieza's five most elite henchmen. Reluctantly, Gohan and Krillin agree to ally with Vegeta to use the Dragon Balls to make Vegeta immortal so that he can defeat the Ginyu Force, and Frieza, more easily. Krillin, Gohan, and Vegeta rush to retrieve the Dragon Ball which Gohan had left with Bulma (who wonders why Vegeta stole the Dragon Ball) and meanwhile, the Ginyu Force lands on the planet and meets up with Frieza.
Goku completes his training at 100-times Earth's gravity on the way to Namek and discovers his results are much more impressive than he anticipated. 29 "The Special-Squad's Frontline Man!

The Ginyu Force beats them there, and with speed and a time freeze, swipe the two remaining Dragon Balls. Captain Ginyu takes the seven Dragon Balls to Frieza, and allows the other members to play Rock-Paper-Scissors to decide who gets to fight who. Recoome wins a fight with Vegeta and Guldo wins a fight with Krillin and Gohan. Krillin and Gohan fight Guldo first. After realizing that they are no easy match for him, Guldo paralyzes the two with his ESP-based "time freeze" technique.
Vegeta, however, kills Guldo before any harm is done to the Earthlings, so Recoome decides he's next to fight. Meanwhile, Goku is ten minutes away from landing on Namek. 30 "The Hellish Recoome!

While the Saiyan prince manages to get in a few good blows, ultimately Recoome doesn't seem to be suffering any damage. Gohan and Krillin enter battle after Vegeta becomes too badly injured to continue fighting, but quickly find themselves similarly beaten and outclassed by the hulking Ginyu Force member. Elsewhere, Frieza attempts to use the Dragon Balls but nothing happens, prompting him to leave Ginyu to guard the balls while he himself goes to look for Namekians to tell him how to activate the Dragon Balls so he can use a wish to become immortal.
Just when all seems lost in Vegeta, Krillin and Gohan's fight with Recoome, Goku's Capsule Corporation ship finally touches down on Planet Namek. 31 "Son Goku Finally Arrives!

Recoome, charging up a deadly attack, is defeated by a single blow from Goku. Jeice and Burter leap into battle trying a variety of techniques - none of which have the least bit of effect on Goku. Burter is knocked out by a few swift attacks from Goku, as Jeice stares in awe at his latest opponent - having never faced someone so powerful. Vegeta comes to suspect that Goku has become the first "Super Saiyan" in over 1000 years, but has difficulty accepting the idea that a "low-class" Saiyan like Goku could become a Super Saiyan more easily than an "elite-class" warrior like himself.
32 "Star Performer Entry!? Commander Ginyu vs. Son Goku" / "The Star Player Appears! Ginyu vs. Goku!""Shin'uchi Tōjō!? Ginyū Taichō VS Son Gokū" (真打ち登場!? ギニュー隊長VS孫悟空) November 15, 2009 July 21, 2010 Goku tells Jeice to take the beaten Recoome and Burter and leave the planet forever. Jeice flees to Captain Ginyu and tells him what has happened. Ginyu has Frieza's men bury the Dragon Balls then sets out with Jeice towards Goku.
Meanwhile, Vegeta kills Burter and then Recoome. Also, Krillin and Gohan realize that Frieza is heading towards the Grand Elder in order to obtain the password to summon the Namekian Dragon. Shortly after this, Ginyu and Jeice arrive to battle Goku. Goku tells Krillin and Gohan to leave. Vegeta tricks Goku and flies away, leaving Goku to fight alone. Goku and Captain Ginyu fight, and after a while Ginyu asks Goku to release his true power.
Goku abides and begins to power up via the Kaio-ken. 33 "Son Goku at Full Power! There's a Secret Plan in the Shaking Ginyu!?" / "Full Power, Goku! Captain Ginyu’s Desperate Attack!""Furu Pawā da Son Gokū! Ononoku Ginyū ni Hisaku Ari!?" (フルパワーだ孫悟空! おののくギニューに秘策あり!?) November 22, 2009 July 22, 2010 Using the mighty Kaio-ken technique, Goku powers up to his maximum level - which is far greater than Ginyu expected.
The captain can do nothing but tremble in fear at his more powerful opponent. The Grand Elder unlocks Dende's hidden powers and sends him off to meet the Earthlings - the Elder has realized the Earth warriors do not know how to use the Namekian Dragon Balls - and Nail begins battling Frieza to stall for time while Dende travels. While Frieza is clearly the stronger of the two, he is surprised at Nail's ability to regenerate lost limbs.
Gohan and Krillin rescue Bulma from a dinosaur attack, and take the dragon radar to find where Frieza stashed the Dragon Balls. As the episode ends, Ginyu makes the strange move of wounding himself, and firing a strange beam at Goku. 34 "Surprise! Goku is Ginyu and Ginyu is Goku!?""Bikkuri! Gokū ga Ginyū de Ginyū ga Gokū!?" (ビックリ! 悟空がギニューでギニューが悟空!?) November 29, 2009 July 28, 2010 The beam Ginyu fires at Goku causes the two of them to switch bodies.
Goku is now trapped in Ginyu's wounded body. Krillin and Gohan arrive at Frieza's ship and dig up the Dragon Balls. Ginyu, in Goku's body, and Jeice arrive back at the ship as well, but when Ginyu tries to power up his level is only 23,000, far less than the 180,000 level Goku had before the body switch. Realizing that great strength requires unity of mind and body, Goku (in Ginyu's body) arrives and shouts to Krillin and Gohan that they can easily defeat Ginyu.
Vegeta kills Jeice and boasts that he is close to becoming a Super Saiyan. 35 "A Great Turnabout for Goku?! Super Shenlong, Come Out Right Now!" / "Goku’s Comeback! Call Forth Porunga!""Gokū Dai-Gyakuten!? Ima Koso Ide yo Chō-Shenron!" (悟空大逆転!? 今こそいでよ超神龍!) December 6, 2009 July 29, 2010 After killing Jeice, Vegeta sets his sights on Ginyu (still in Goku's body).
Vegeta effortlessly pummels Ginyu, and an attempt by Ginyu to switch into Vegeta's body is thwarted by Goku who intercepts the beam, sending Ginyu and Goku back to their respective original bodies. Ginyu tries again to switch with Vegeta, but Goku, although wounded by Krillin and Gohan attacking his body when it was taken over by Ginyu, throws a Namekian frog in the path, resulting in Ginyu switching into the frog's body.
With the Ginyu Force completely defeated, Vegeta places Goku in a rejuvenation chamber inside Frieza's spaceship, and gives battle armor to Krillin and Gohan. Krillin leaves to find the Grand Elder to learn the appropriate summoning ritual for the Namekian Dragon Balls. Krillin meets up with Dende on the way over, as Dende had been heading for the Earth team already. It is revealed that the summoning has to be done in the Namekian language, so Dende will act as the translator to summon the dragon and request the wishes.
Meanwhile, Nail continues to fight Frieza to stall for the time needed for Dende to reach Krillin and Gohan. Nail eventually reveals this to Frieza after realizing he will never last if he continues; the enraged tyrant immediately charges back towards his spaceship to try to regain control of the Dragon Balls. Krillin, Gohan, and Dende take advantage of the fact that Vegeta is napping, and take the Dragon Balls away from the ship and successfully summon Porunga, the Eternal Dragon of Namek.
36 "An Enraged Freeza Approaches! Porunga... Please Grant Our Wish!" / "Frieza Closes In! Mighty Porunga, Grant Our Wish!""Gekikō Furīza ga Semaru! Porunga yo... Negai o Kanae Tamae!" (激昂フリーザが迫る! ポルンガよ…願いを叶えたまえ!) December 13, 2009 September 6, 2010 Krillin and Gohan discover that although the Namekian Dragon Balls can grant three wishes, they can resurrect only one person per wish, unlike the Earth's Dragon Balls.
After consulting with their dead friends via King Kai's telepathic abilities, they use the first wish to revive Piccolo, which also brings Kami and the Earth's Dragon Balls back. They then use the second wish to teleport Piccolo to Namek so he can assist them in their fight with Frieza, but they are not specific enough in their wish; as a result Piccolo is indeed transported to Namek, but ends up quite a distance away from his friends and the imminent battle with Frieza.
At this point Vegeta awakens and learns he's been duped, and speeds angrily to where Porunga is hovering over Namek. He is about to attack Krillin and Gohan until they tell him there is still one wish left; after some debate it is decided to let Vegeta use the wish to become immortal, as it seems to be the only possible way to defeat Frieza. Dende speaks the wish, but just before it can be granted, the Grand Elder dies and the Namekian Dragon Balls become useless; Porunga disintegrates and the balls turn to plain stone.
Just as Vegeta thinks his luck couldn't get any worse, Frieza finally arrives, and is not happy at all that his own plans for immortality have been thwarted. 37 "A Tormenting Super Transformation! Freeza's One Million Fighting Power" / "A Nightmare Transformation! Frieza's Power Level-One Million!?""Akumu no Chō Henshin! Sentōryoku Hyaku-man no Furīza" (悪夢の超変身! 戦闘力100万のフリーザ) December 20, 2009 October 20, 2010 Piccolo arrives on Planet Namek following being resurrected and wished there.
He begins rushing towards the battlefield, and along the way encounters an ailing Nail, on the brink of death. Piccolo reluctantly performs Namekian fusion with Nail, which increases his power substantially, and begins rushing back to the battlefield. Meanwhile, Frieza, after battling the Earthlings and Vegeta in his first form, transforms to his second form following some goading from Vegeta - and this increases the tyrant's power level to over a million.
With his increased power, Frieza charges at Krillin in the air, impaling him on one of his horns. 38 "Freeza Bares His Fangs! Gohan's Transcendent Power Attacks" / "Frieza Bares His Fangs! Gohan's Overwhelming Attack!""Kiba o Muku Furīza! Chōzetsu Pawā ga Gohan o Osō" (牙をむくフリーザ! 超絶パワーが悟飯を襲う) December 27, 2009 October 21, 2010 After impaling Krillin, Frieza slings him into the water.
Gohan rushes to rescue his friend, but his path is blocked by the tyrant. Gohan's rage from seeing a friend in pain gets the better of him, and he immediately starts unloading on Frieza, much to Vegeta's surprise; Vegeta had never seen how strong emotion dramatically increases Gohan's power levels. As Gohan knocks Frieza out of the air, Dende saves Krillin from drowning and heals him - this was one of his hidden powers that the Grand Elder had unlocked.
Frieza charges towards Gohan to get his revenge, only to be blasted in the back by Vegeta - which, to the Saiyan prince's disappointment, does absolutely nothing. Frieza begins thrashing Gohan, but is rescued by the healed Krillin, who distracts the tyrant with numerous attacks and escapades - buying just enough time for Dende to heal Gohan. It becomes clear that Frieza outclasses them all, so the three warriors begin blasting him with everything they've got.
Once again, it has no effect, but as they are about to charge him in their moment of desperation, Piccolo finally arrives on the battlefield, announcing that he will be the one to win the battle. 39 "The Reborn Piccolo Shows Himself!

Gekido Furīza Dai Ni no Henshin" (新生ピッコロあらわる! 激怒フリーザ第2の変身) January 10, 2010 October 27, 2010 Fortified by his combining with Nail, Piccolo begins battling Frieza - and surprisingly manages to hold his own.
The two exchange blows pretty evenly for a good portion of the fight. Piccolo eventually realizes Frieza slightly holds the upper hand, so Piccolo removes his weighted training clothing and begins winning against the tyrant. Frieza finds himself backed into a corner, so he decides it is best to transform again to fight Piccolo. Becoming his grotesque, ugly third form, Frieza once again gains the upper hand and begins obliterating Piccolo with a rapid finger beam blast.
Gohan rushes to rescue his mentor, and when Krillin tries to follow suit, Vegeta stops him - revealing to Krillin that he may have a strategy that will allow him to defeat the tyrant. 40 "Freeza's Final Transformation!

Frieza then decides to transform to his fourth form - the final and most powerful. Vegeta's plan to defeat Frieza involves having himself mortally wounded and then being healed by Dende - which the Saiyan prince achieves by having Krillin shoot a ki blast through his chest. Vegeta has realized that each time a Saiyan is badly injured, his power level will increase substantially after he is healed.
Vegeta lowers his shields to allow Krillin's attack to succeed, and Krillin proceeds to deliver a devastating blow to Vegeta. What nobody realizes is that Dende has no interest in healing Vegeta; Dende runs from Vegeta and instead heals Piccolo, who eventually convinces him to heal Vegeta as well. Frieza eventually reaches his final form, and immediately kills Dende with his Death Beam technique - having witnessed his healing abilities while transforming, Frieza realizes this may be the key to defeating the others.
Krillin, Gohan, and Piccolo go on the attack but the tyrant dodges every single attack they throw his way. Vegeta watches them fight from a hill, preparing to charge up to his newfound power level as Gohan finds himself on a direct collision course with another one of Frieza's blasts. 41 "The Moment We've Waited For!

While Gohan is grateful, Vegeta tells him he doesn't care about him as a person and only did it as a demonstration of his abilities - now that he has declared himself a Super Saiyan. The Saiyan prince powers up to unbelievable levels of strength, which leave Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo in awe - but no matter how much he powers up, and how many deadly attacks he dishes out, Frieza dodges and deflects everything.
Vegeta quickly finds himself on the wrong end of the tyrant's attacks, and is quickly beaten once he realizes he has not actually achieved Super Saiyan status. Gohan attempts to help but is stopped by Piccolo, who says Gohan would not be able to do anything anyway. However, just as all hope seems lost, Goku emerges from the rejuvenation chamber inside Frieza's spaceship - fully recovered and with his power once again increased beyond his expectations.

Piccolo, Gohan and Krillin are forced to stand idly by while Frieza continues to thrash the Saiyan prince.
However, Goku finally arrives at the battlefield and confronts the tyrant. Surprisingly, Frieza finds Goku's appearance very familiar. When Vegeta mocks Frieza, saying that Goku is the "real" Super Saiyan, the tyrant fires his Death Beam through Vegeta's heart, giving him just seconds to live. Before his death, Vegeta informs Goku that Frieza was responsible for the destruction of the Saiyan planet and the entire Saiyan race; Vegeta begs Goku to defeat the tyrant and avenge their people, and even sheds true tears, which greatly moves Goku.
Goku then makes a grave and buries Vegeta, before setting his sights on Frieza himself - vowing that he will defeat the merciless tyrant. 43 "Son Goku vs. Freeza!

February 7, 2010 November 10, 2010 Goku jumps into battle against Frieza, and quickly proves to be more of a challenge than Frieza thought.
The two exchange powerful blows and discover their levels of strength are nearly equal. As Goku and Frieza attempt to one-up each other, Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo back away to watch the battle from a safe distance, while Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu watch from King Kai's planet in the Other World. At one point during the battle, Goku is able to take advantage of Frieza's inability to sense another's ki, but Frieza counters this by trapping Goku in an exploding ball of energy that nearly kills him.
However, Piccolo states that even after all this, neither Goku nor Frieza is fighting at full power just yet. 44 "A Physical War That Exceeds All Limits!

February 14, 2010 November 11, 2010 Goku and Frieza's battle continues, with the two pretty evenly exchanging blows.
However Goku is in for a shock when he discovers the tyrant has only been using a small amount of his total power. Frieza then boosts his power up to 50%, and Goku is quickly overwhelmed, even with the use of the 10-times Kaio-ken. Meanwhile, Bulma meets the frog Ginyu, and Ginyu steals her body, leaving Bulma in the frog form. Ginyu heads for the battlefield; Bulma has managed to accompany him and both soon arrive at the battlefield where Goku and Frieza are continuing to duke it out - with Goku quickly outclassed by the powered-up tyrant.

Meanwhile, Goku continues to be thrashed by Frieza. However, he sees a vision of how Frieza could destroy everyone he loves - and as a result, he uses the 20-times Kaio-ken alongside a massive Kamehameha against Frieza. However, even this is not enough to defeat the tyrant, and the use of the 20-times Kaio-ken severely weakens Goku. He then has another vision, this time of Vegeta and other Saiyans of the past, reminding him that should he fail, Frieza will finally succeed in exterminating the entire Saiyan race.
Motivated once again, Goku stands his ground as Frieza lunges at him. 46 "This Is the Last Trump Card! Goku's Extra-Large Genki Dama" / "The Final Trump Card!

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. 47 "Awaken Warrior of Legend... Super Saiyan, Son Goku!" / "Awaken, Legendary Warrior!

The tyrant manages to catch it, but is unable to stop it from exploding on him. The Z Fighters celebrate their apparent victory and start making plans to return to Earth. However, Frieza reappears and, though badly damaged from the Spirit Bomb, he is still powerful enough to take them all out.
Frieza fires his Death Beam straight at Goku, but Piccolo jumps in the way and takes the beam to the chest, which knocks him unconscious. Frieza next sets his sights on Krillin and causes Krillin's body to explode from the inside, killing him. Enraged by these sacrifices, Goku undergoes a radical transformation in which his eyes turn from black to green, his black hair turns blonde, and his body is surrounded in an aura of golden light.
With his powers now greatly enhanced, Goku orders Gohan to take Piccolo to his spaceship, find Bulma, and leave Namek, while he handles Frieza. 48 "The Angry Super Saiyan!

March 14, 2010 November 27, 2010 The transformed Goku renews his battle with Frieza and proves to now be far superior to Frieza's power.
Frieza launches several counter-attacks at Goku, but they have no effect at all. As the tyrant stares in awe at his more-powerful opponent, he realizes that his worst nightmare has come true - a legendary Super Saiyan, which Frieza had long secretly feared, has finally been born. In a desperate attempt to defeat Goku, Frieza hurls an attack down upon Namek itself, in an effort to destroy the planet and everyone on it.

Super Saiyan Goku is confident that he can defeat Frieza within that time, however, Frieza then decides to power up to 100% of his full power.
Much to King Kai's amazement, Goku allows Frieza to reach his full power rather than attacking while Frieza powers up, wishing to defeat the tyrant at his best. 50 "Do-or-Die Full Power of Freeza!

Popo has gathered all seven of Earth's Dragon Balls. Upon learning of the Earth's Dragon Balls' ability to resurrect multiple people despite being limited to one wish per use, King Kai asks that they be used to bring back to life all those on Namek who were killed by Frieza and his minions, thus also bringing back the Grand Elder, as well as the Namekian Dragon Balls, which still have one more wish to be used.
King Kai plans to use this final wish to teleport everyone on Namek to Earth except for Frieza, leaving the tyrant to be the only one present when Namek explodes. Mr. Popo then summons Shenron and fulfills King Kai's first wish. 51 "Furious Battle Cry of Goku! Make It in Time... The Resurrection Wish!" / "Goku's Furious Roar!

King Kai immediately contacts the Elder and quickly informs him of the situation. The Elder then sends Dende to Porunga in order to use the final wish to teleport everyone on Namek to Earth, except for Frieza. However, Goku requests that he remain on Namek as well, so he can finish Frieza once and for all. Porunga fulfills this wish and teleports everyone to Earth except Goku and Frieza. The two combatants then prepare themselves for the final round before Namek's explosion.

However, Goku soon notices that Frieza's power is quickly decreasing, due to his 100% full power taking its toll on his body.
Satisfied that he has won, Goku decides to call it quits and begins to depart towards his spaceship. Unable to accept this, Frieza launches a pair of heat-seeking ki disks at Goku. The Super Saiyan manages to avoid this, however, and eventually Frieza is sliced in half by his own attack.

Meanwhile, on Namek, the dying Frieza begs for mercy from Goku. Despite his better judgement, Goku cannot ignore Frieza's pleas for help and gives the tyrant some of his own ki before departing. However, Frieza lets his pride get the better of him and unleashes one final ki blast at Goku, but the Super Saiyan easily repels the blast right back at the tyrant and seemingly destroys Frieza in the process.
Goku then attempts to escape in Frieza's spaceship, but is unable to make it take off. Namek finally explodes and it appears that Goku perishes along with the planet. 54 "Goku Vanishes in Space...

However, Vegeta comes up with the idea of using the Dragon Balls to first bring Goku and Krillin's souls to the Earth's check-in station in the Other World, from where they can be resurrected on Earth. 130 days after their use on Namek, the Namekian Dragon Balls become re-active, and the first two wishes are used to successfully revive Krillin; it is revealed that Goku is actually still alive and that he will return to Earth on his own later.
Yamcha is then brought back to life with the third wish. Another 130 days later, the Namekian Dragon Balls are used to revive both Tien and Chiaotzu, and are then used to teleport all of the native Namekians to a new planet. The Z Fighters then return to their peaceful lives, waiting patiently for Goku to return. 55 "That's Earth, Papa... Freeza and His Father Strike Back" / "There Is Planet Earth, Father!

The rest of the Z Fighters gather to defend the Earth from Frieza, despite knowing the odds are against them.
However, as soon as Frieza, King Cold, and their army of soldiers arrive on Earth, they are met by a mysterious teenager wielding a sword, who says that he has come to kill them. 56 "I'll Defeat Freeza!

The evil tyrant attempts to destroy this second Super Saiyan, but is unsuccessful. Eventually, the teenager slices Frieza into pieces with his sword, before blasting him away. King Cold tries to defeat the Super Saiyan himself, but the teenager easily kills him and destroys his ship. After reverting to his normal state, the teenager spots the Z Fighters and says that Goku will be arriving nearby soon.

There is no time for celebration, however, as the mysterious teenager pulls Goku aside to talk with him in private. After testing Goku's Super Saiyan powers, the teenager reveals that his name is Trunks and that he comes from an apocalyptic future 20 years from the present, as well as that he is the future son of Bulma and Vegeta. He further informs Goku that in three years from now, a pair of deadly androids, built by Doctor Gero of the former Red Ribbon Army, will begin a rampage on Earth and kill all of the Z Fighters, except for Goku, who will have died from a heart virus six months before their assault.
Trunks then supplies Goku with a heart antidote made in his future timeline, instructing him to take it when the virus attacks him. Piccolo hears the whole conversation using his special hearing. Goku promises that he and the other Z Fighters will train hard for the next three years to prepare for the androids' assault, and Trunks then returns to the future in his time machine. 58 "New Technique of Goku, Instant Movement!

He further explains that he eventually landed on a planet called Yardrat and was nursed back to health by the friendly inhabitants of the planet. He also reveals that he learned from them a special teleportation technique called Instant Transmission. The Z Fighters then go their separate ways to each begin preparing themselves for the androids' assault. After three years of intense training, they all head off to meet on the island on which Trunks had indicated that the androids would begin their attack.

However, as the time approaches, the androids are nowhere to be seen.
Yajirobe arrives to deliver Korin's new batch of Senzu beans to the others, but as soon as he departs, the androids shoot down his ship and immediately descend into the nearby city before the Z Fighters can get a glimpse of them. Gohan goes to rescue Yajirobe, while the rest of the Z Fighters fly down to the city as well to search out their enemies. After a period of searching, Yamcha becomes the first victim of the androids, after having his energy absorbed by Android #20, and then being impaled.
The others arrive just in time to save him, and Goku eventually persuades the androids to move to a new location to fight after a large portion of the city is destroyed. 60 "Attacked on Both Sides by an Internal Enemy?!

However, once Yamcha reveals the androids' ability to absorb energy, he, Krillin, and Gohan head off to warn the others. Meanwhile, it is revealed to Goku that the androids are a result of years of research conducted by Dr. Gero, in which miniature spy robots were used to analyze Goku's fighting techniques and developments in strength, all in an attempt to exact revenge on Goku for destroying the Red Ribbon Army.
However, Gero did not analyze Goku during his time on Planet Namek, and thus the androids are unaware of his ability to transform into a Super Saiyan, which Goku gladly demonstrates in front of them. A battle then ensues between Goku and Android #19, and though Goku clearly has the upper hand, he soon appears to be losing energy. Eventually, Goku is seen clutching the left side of his chest, which Gohan immediately recognizes as a symptom of the heart virus that Trunks had warned Goku of.
However, the virus is attacking Goku's heart much later than Trunks had predicted. As Goku struggles to stay conscious, #19 prepares to finish the battle by absorbing Goku's remaining energy. Piccolo tries to intervene, however, Android #20 blasts Piccolo with his eye beams, which sends him crashing to the ground. 61 "No Chance of Victory Against #19!

Yamcha then escorts Goku back home in order to administer the heart antidote to him. Vegeta then faces off with the androids, and much to everyone's surprise, transforms into a Super Saiyan. It is revealed that, whereas Goku's first transformation was triggered by his rage over Frieza's murder of Krillin, Vegeta's was triggered by his rage at simply being unable to surpass Goku. The battle then begins, and it's clear that Vegeta has the edge over #19.
Even the android's energy absorption attack proves futile, as Vegeta tears off the android's hands, making it impossible for it to absorb anymore energy from its opponents. As the android runs away in fear, Vegeta launches his Big Bang Attack and finishes the battle, leaving nothing but the android's head intact. Android #20 then escapes into the nearby cliffs, planning to use the terrain to launch a surprise attack on the Z Fighters.

Frustrated at his enemy's deceptiveness, Vegeta fires a large ki blast at the cliffs, planning to level the area.
Seeing this opportunity, #20 emerges from his hiding place, only to absorb Vegeta's blast and run away before Vegeta can catch up. The android then attacks Piccolo from behind and begins to drain his energy, although this is thwarted by Gohan, who senses Piccolo's fading ki and attacks Android #20. After receiving a Senzu bean, Piccolo then faces off against his attacker, and proves to be more than a match for the android.
Meanwhile, Trunks finally returns from the future, and is disturbed to find that the remains of Android #19 are different from the androids that he faced in his own timeline. He then arrives at the current battlefield, and also seems not to recognize #20. Realising that he has no chance of victory, #20 decides to retreat to his laboratory, but not before launching a huge blast that engulfs most of the area - including Bulma's ship, which plummets towards the ground.

Meanwhile, Trunks rescues his mother and young self, and berates Vegeta for failing to protect his family. Bulma then reveals that #20 may actually be the androids' creator, Dr. Gero, who has seemingly converted himself into one as well. The group then plan to find the lab and destroy the androids before Gero can activate them. Vegeta also sets off to find the lab, but with the intentions of fighting the androids as a demonstration of his power.
Trunks leaves to stop his father, while Piccolo finally unveils the truth of Trunks' origin to the rest of the group. He knew this because he overheard the conversation between Trunks and Goku. Meanwhile, Piccolo, Krillin and Tien split up and search the mountains where Gero's lab is rumoured to be located, while Gohan takes Bulma, baby Trunks, and Yajirobe home. Meanwhile, Krillin is attacked by the doctor, but is spared when Gero senses Piccolo nearby and escapes.

Tien, Piccolo, Vegeta, and Trunks soon locate him and break into the lab, although by this point Gero has already awakened Androids #17 and #18.
Although initially appearing loyal, the duo demonstrate their independence when #17 destroys Gero's remote, ensuring that he cannot deactivate them should they disobey him, and #18 attempts to activate Android #16 - a fully mechanical model deemed a failure by Gero. #17 then kills Gero, by severing and then crushing his head. In an act of desperation, Trunks launches a large ki blast at the androids, hoping to destroy #16 before he is activated.
Although the entire lab is decimated, both androids and #16's pod remain intact, and he is awakened anyway. The trio then decide to carry out their initial orders, and set out to kill Goku. However, their plans are disrupted when Vegeta intervenes, challenging the three androids to a battle.

Piccolo and Tien then get beaten down effortlessly by Android #17, while Krillin stays behind and watches the horror, and Android #16 simply observes the nearby birds.

The androids of the present are apparently more powerful, but they seem to be less cruel.
There also was not an Android #16 in Trunks' time period. Piccolo then flies off to try to convince Kami to merge with him once again, believing that it is the only way to stop the androids. However, Kami believes that the androids are not entirely evil and that the only reason they fought against the Z Fighters was because the Z Fighters attacked first. Kami then decides to wait and see what happens as Piccolo sits down waiting until Kami agrees to merge with him.

She is sent a photograph of what appears to be Trunks' time machine that he travelled in.
Trunks investigates this with the others only to discover that it is the exact time machine that he came in but three years later in his world. He recognizes it because of the word 'Hope' that Bulma wrote on the time machine.

On the way back to her house, Bulma watches a news broadcast about thousands of people in nearby Gingertown who have inexplicably disappeared, as if they simply melted away in their clothes. Kami also watches in horror as the people are killed, and finally decides to merge with Piccolo. After the merging, Piccolo states that he is neither Piccolo nor Kami anymore, but a Namekian "who has long since forgotten his name.

The others are confused, saying that the android is emanating multiple ki readings characteristic of Frieza, King Cold, Vegeta, and Goku. Krillin and Trunks head toward Gingertown, where Piccolo and the monster begin fighting. Piccolo has the advantage, but is surprised when the monster uses Piccolo's own Makankosappo technique on him. The two exchange blows, and then the monster states that Piccolo only has the upper hand because he [the monster] has not yet reached his "perfect form.
" He then surprises everyone by powering up a Kamehameha and launching it point-blank. Piccolo's dodge leaves him open to the monster's follow-up attack, which he uses to trap Piccolo in a hold and pierce his arm. Piccolo manages to escape, but his left arm has been completely incapacitated.

Cell furthermore reveals that by absorbing Androids #17 and #18, he will achieve his "Perfect Form," making him "invincible," since Dr. Gero's computer predicted that in his Perfect Form, Cell would be the most powerful being in the known universe. With the androids destroyed in his own timeline, he was forced to travel to the present one in Trunks' time machine, after killing him.
Having learned Cell's identity and intentions, Piccolo regenerates his arm and prepares to fight. At this point, Trunks and Krillin arrive, and Cell realizes he has no chance of winning. He surprises everyone by using Tien's Solar Flare technique to blind them, and then flees. Vegeta and Tien arrive, and Piccolo explains everything he's learned.

Trunks and Krillin go to Dr. Gero's laboratory, where they discover a set of blueprints for Android #17. In hopes that the prints will allow Bulma and Dr. Briefs to uncover a weakness in the androids, they take the prints before destroying the developing Cell and the rest of the laboratory. Trunks goes to find Vegeta while Krillin delivers the prints to Bulma. Several days go by, during which Piccolo and the others are unable to locate Cell.
However, back at the Kame House, Chi-Chi and Master Roshi start hearing thunderous booms on the island and rush to the window to find a fully recovered Goku launching Kamehameha blasts into the horizon. The three share a joyous moment before Goku turns serious and states that he'd fare no better against the androids than Vegeta did.

The chamber only has a capacity of two so Goku allows Vegeta and Trunks to go in first. Goku explains a years worth of training in the chamber is actually only one day in the outside world. When Trunks and Vegeta step inside the chamber, all they see is a vast amount of nothingness. While this is going on, the androids arrive at the Kame House and ask for Goku's whereabouts. Piccolo refuses to tell them, which results in a fight between Piccolo and Android #17.
Piccolo overpowers #17 and tries to finish him off, but #17 manages to dodge the attack.

Cell senses the two fighting and starts making his way towards them, stating that his power level is now higher than theirs. Krillin, and the others on a nearby island, receive a call from Bulma saying that she has completed the switch to shut down the androids and prepares to deliver it to the others.
#17 states that since his stamina and power level will never drop, he will be the victor of the battle. However, Cell arrives at the scene of the battle, leaving Piccolo shocked.

Cell quickly breaks Piccolo's neck, before blasting him through the chest at point-blank range, and then Cell tosses Piccolo's body into the sea.

The two fight at an even level, with #16 landing a massive blast on Cell. However, Cell survives and uses the opportunity to absorb Android #17.

Shortly afterward, Trunks and Vegeta emerge from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, stating that they have successfully surpassed the level of Super Saiyan.
They leave to confront Cell, while Goku and Gohan prepare to enter the time chamber for their own training.

Krillin tells her that now is their chance to get off the island, and that she and Android #16 must leave now. Cell successfully persuades Vegeta to let him find and absorb Android #18, but Trunks is determined to prevent this and delivers his own beating to Cell.
During a break in the action, Cell spots the androids and Krillin, who are distracted by their own awkward meeting. Vegeta attempts to keep Trunks from interfering, forcing Trunks to attack his own father in order to prevent him from allowing Cell to reach his perfect form. While this is going on, Cell is savoring the moment and leisurely going about picking off Android #16 and Krillin. Despite their best efforts and a sound beating from Trunks, Cell is ultimately able to blind everyone via the Solar Flare, absorb #18, and achieve his Perfect Form.

Kanzentai Seru, Tsui ni Shidō" (形勢逆転! 完全体セル、ついに始動) November 7, 2010 October 10, 2011 Gohan asks Goku to get serious in his training, so Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan and fires a Kamehameha on Gohan. Gohan thinks of all the times he has let his friends down and gets angry, resulting in him finally turning into a Super Saiyan for the first time.
Back at the battlefield, Vegeta disregards Cell's Perfect Form as nothing special and he is just the same as before. Meanwhile, Krillin is angry at Cell for absorbing Android #18, so he charges towards Cell and attempts to attack him by using his Kienzan technique, but the attack has no effect whatsoever. Cell then lightly kicks Krillin to one side, leaving him almost dead, but Trunks rushes to his aid and feeds him a Senzu bean, saving him from near death.
Vegeta starts his fight with Cell and after a short while he soon realizes Cell's power far exceeds his own. In the background, Krillin and Trunks are talking about how Trunks has hidden his own true power, one even greater than Vegeta's but kept secret from him due to Vegeta's towering pride. Trunks plans to fight Cell when Vegeta is unconscious in order to hide his powers from Vegeta to prevent his father from losing his pride.

Vegeta calculates his attack and avoids destroying the entire Earth and also manages to take off Cell's right arm, but with Piccolo's genes Cell easily regenerates his arm.
Cell knocks Vegeta unconscious and Trunks takes this chance to unleash his hidden powers onto Cell. Trunks momentarily lets Cell push him around a little in order to create a chance for Krillin to take the unconscious Vegeta to a safe location. Now that Vegeta is out of commission, Trunks and Cell can begin their real fight. 82 "Super Power Awakening! Trunks Surpasses his Father" / "The Strongest Super Saiyan! Trunks' Power Unleashed!""Chō Pawā Kakusei!

Trunks and Cell seem to be evenly matched at first, but after a while Trunks' attack cease to hit Cell. Trunks decides to power up even more but he is still unable to connect his attacks to hit Cell. In the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Goku manages to power up to the same bulked-up transformation as Trunks, but decides not to use that form, because in order to achieve that form, even though great power is gained, Goku concludes the decrease in speed is too much - and having power but not being able to hit your opponent is useless, so he decides to focus on mastering his normal Super Saiyan form instead.
This turns out to be the same reason why Trunks cannot defeat Cell, and Trunks power level begins to drop due to the strain of maintaining his transformation. Cell learns that Goku is training to defeat him, so in order to waste time he decides to hold his own World Martial Arts Tournament where anyone can enter to fight him. 83 "The Television Has Been Hijacked!

Bulma also notifies everyone at Kami's Lookout to go there to meet up.
After Cell finishes arranging his tournament, he then heads off to a news station to broadcast his message via television announcing details about his tournament, the "Cell Games," and states if that all the warriors lose to him, he will kill every single last human being. Meanwhile Goku and Gohan are still training. 84 "Training Completed! Does Goku, have the Composure to Defeat Cell?!" / "Training Complete! Goku Sizes Up the Competition!""Shūgyou Kanryō!

Meanwhile, Goku and Gohan finish their training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, and emerged as Full Power Super Saiyans. Goku immediately requests that Mr. Popo prepare a meal and Trunks explains the latest Cell developments. Goku then teleports to the site of the Cell Games and confronts Cell. After returning to the Lookout, Goku announces he and Gohan will not be entering the time chamber again.
Instead, for the remaining nine days until the Cell Games, they will train in the real world. Goku and Gohan then fly down to the Kame House to greet Chi-Chi and their remaining friends. 85 "An Interrupted Rest!

Meanwhile, the Self-Defense Army attempt to launch an offensive strike against Cell, but they are completely wiped out. Hearing about this over the radio, Goku asks Piccolo if it is possible to separate with Kami, so he can use the Dragon Balls to revive all the people Cell killed. Since Piccolo can't separate, Goku theorises that he can convince another Namekian to stay on Earth and create a new set of Dragon Balls, and goes to King Kai's planet so he can find the Namekians.

The Grand Elder Moori offers Dende to be the new Kami, and Goku takes him back to Earth. Dende revives the Dragon Balls, revealing that this time they can grant two wishes. During the remaining days leading up to the Cell Games, Goku searches for the newly awakened Dragon Balls, Vegeta and the others finish their training, and the 24th World Martial Arts Tournament champion Mr. Satan announces to the world that he will defeat Cell.
On the day of the Cell Games, it is revealed that if the new Dragon Balls are used to revive a mass of people, people who died before won't be revived. Despite the others' concern, Goku remains positive and they all head towards the Cell Games. 87 "Satan's Legion Runs Wild! The Curtain Rises on the Cell Games" / "Mr. Satan Takes the Stage!

Satan hypes himself in front of the media, Vegeta, Android #16, Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, Trunks, Krillin, Tien, and Yamcha arrive at the stage. Mr. Satan insists he goes before him first, though when his students Caroni and Piroshki arrive, he allows them to go first, but they are defeated without Cell needing to move. Mr. Satan tries to intimidate Cell by breaking some tiles and then goes on the attack, but Cell knocks him out of the ring with a single blow, not even bothering to kill him.
Cell wishes to take on a proper opponent, and Goku steps into the ring. 88 "Decisive Battle! Cell vs Son Goku" / "Showdown! Cell vs. Goku!""Kessen! Seru Tai Son Gokū" (決戦! セル対孫悟空) January 9, 2011 November 10, 2011 Full Power Super Saiyan Goku and Cell begin to fight, and despite putting on an impressive performance, Gohan and Vegeta both realize that neither of them is using their full power yet.
Both fighters then raise their power level to their maximum. After a brief battle, Cell begins to attack using techniques 'inherited' from other characters--first Tien's Multi-Form technique, then Piccolo's Makankosappo, and finally Frieza's heat-seeking Kienzan attack. When Goku overcomes each of these techniques, Cell prepares a full-power Kamehameha capable of destroying the Earth. Goku diverts the attack away from the planet by taking to the sky, and then uses the Instant Transmission to escape back to the ring.
However, when Cell utilizes his full speed, he becomes too fast for Goku to keep up with him. 89 "A Battle of the Highest Level! Defeat Cell, Son Goku" / "Battle at the Highest Level!

The power levels of both fighters are equal, and they land powerful blows on each other. Cell then decides to destroy the tournament ring, ensuring that their battle cannot be ended by a ring out and can continue until one of them either dies or surrenders. The battle becomes even more intense, culminating with Goku flying high into the sky building up a powerful Kamehameha. Cell and everyone else states that Goku is bluffing, since from his position in the sky, such an attack would easily destroy the Earth.
Goku then unexpectedly uses his Instant Transmission to teleport himself right in front of Cell and executes the blast at point-blank range. While the rest of the world celebrates what they believe to be Cell's ultimate defeat, Goku and company watch as Cell's remaining lower half rises and regenerates his missing parts. While the ki of both fighters has depleted considerably, the battle continues on.
Although Goku told Cell that Cell had depleted much of his power to regenerate himself, Goku has used up even more of his power, and the battles begins to turn in favor of Cell. Goku then launches a barrage of ki blasts at Cell in a desperate attempt to finish him. 90 "Conclusion to the Death Match! Time for Goku's Decision" / "The Opening Round Is Concluded!

Furthermore, it is clear to the rest of the Z Fighters that Goku has spent the last of his own energy. With all eyes and ears glued to this moment of truth for Goku's mysterious plan, the battle-worn Super Saiyan surprises everyone by surrendering. Adding further shock, he announces that Gohan will be the next and last contestant to fight Cell. Piccolo and Krillin protest this decision, but Gohan agrees and takes Cell on.
Gohan impresses everyone with his power - which proves indeed to be on par with Goku's - but nevertheless finds himself on the losing side of the fight against Cell. 91 "Get Angry Gohan!

Counter to Gohan's intentions, this actually intrigues Cell, who decides to deliberately enrage Gohan by inflicting enough pain to force him to unleash his true strength. After watching Gohan take Cell's punishment, Android #16 intervenes. Taking advantage of the fact that he emits no detectable ki, #16 grabs Cell from behind and declares that he is going to trigger his self-destruct bomb. 92 "The Tears that Disappeared into the Sky!

With the risk of setting off the bomb gone, Cell blasts through #16--causing his body to shatter and leaving only his head intact. Cell realizing that Gohan cannot unleash his hidden powers in response to physical pain, he devises a plan to kill Gohan's friends by spawning seven offspring--the 'Cell Juniors'. Only Vegeta, Trunks, and Piccolo are able to hold their own against the Cell Juniors, while Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, and the fatigued Goku are unable to fight back.
Gohan wants to unleash his power, but cannot figure out how. Meanwhile, #16's head has Mr. Satan carry him to Gohan. He sympathizes with Gohan's desire not to kill, but encourages him that it is okay to unleash his anger to save those that he loves. Cell crushes #16's head--an action that finally pushes Gohan over the edge, and triggers his transformation into a Super Saiyan 2. 93 "Fighting Spirit Free from Hesitation!

Cell is excited that the fight will be more interesting, but Gohan is unamused and snatches the stolen Senzu beans from Cell. Gohan then proceeds to take on all of the Cell Juniors, proving himself impervious to their attacks and effortlessly destroying them. He then throws the Senzu beans to Trunks, who distributes them to his injured comrades. Gohan now focuses his attention on Cell, and from the onset of the battle, it is clear that Gohan holds the advantage.

Gohan cripples Cell with 2 powerful punches, leaving him in shock. Cell resorts to using two heat-seeking Kienzans, but Gohan is able to catch and destroy them. Then, Cell uses his Makankosappo, which Gohan easily deflects, and Cell's Death Beams are absorbed by Gohan. After being easily bested in battle, Cell attempts to destroy Gohan and the Earth with a giant, full-power Kamehameha, but Gohan produces an even stronger wave and reflects Cell's attack with ease.
Gohan's attack absorbs Cell's, and the blast eventually overcomes Cell when he fails to deflect it. As the rest of the fighters predict an easy victory, Goku recalls that even in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Gohan displayed strength far beyond that of a normal Super Saiyan, recalling how Gohan had briefly transformed into a Super Saiyan 2 during their training (before passing out). Gohan's attack has also taken off Cell's legs, and parts of his arm and head.
Goku then tells Gohan to deliver the finishing blow to Cell, but Gohan insists that Cell must suffer first. Cell regenerated his missing limbs, then utilizes his bulked-up form, but the increase in muscle mass lowers his speed greatly, and as a result none of his attacks connect with Gohan. Gohan counters with a powerful blow to Cell's head, and to his stomach, causing Cell to regurgitate Android #18 and revert to his Semi-Perfect Form.
As the fighters assume that this means victory for Gohan, Cell's body begins to expand to a gigantic size. 95 "Bye-Bye Everyone! This is the Only Way to Save the Earth" / "A Hero's Sacrifice!

With mere seconds left, Goku says goodbye to everyone and his son and teleports himself and Cell to King Kai's planet, the only safe place he could think of. Upon arrival, Cell finally explodes, destroying the planet and killing everyone there. As Gohan and the rest of the Z Fighters are left on Earth to grieve, Goku and King Kai realize that Cell hasn't accompanied them to the Other World, and therefore must have survived the explosion.
Using Goku's Instant Transmission technique, Cell returns to Earth, where he kills Trunks with a single blast through the chest, using his Full Power Death Beam. Cell then reveals that not only did his nucleus survive the explosion, but he was able to regenerate into his Perfect Form - and thanks to his Saiyan genetics, he is far stronger than ever before (Cell's Super Perfect Form). Enraged by the death of his son, Vegeta unleashes a furious barrage of ki blasts at Cell, but is easily defeated, and is only saved from certain death when Gohan intercepts Cell's blast and takes the full force of the attack.
With Gohan injured and his left arm broken, and nobody left to challenge Cell, Cell prepares one final Kamehameha to destroy Gohan and the Earth once and for all. 96 "Combine Our Power!

Cell also reveals that he will be able to use Instant Transmission to teleport away to safety before the blast detonates, allowing him to escape the Earth's destruction unscathed. Meanwhile, Vegeta apologizes to Gohan for his recklessness. As Gohan and the others watch on hopelessly, Goku contacts his son from the Other World via King Kai's telepathy and tells him that even in his injured state he has enough power to defeat Cell.
Reinvigorated, Gohan prepares a final, one-handed Kamehameha to repel Cell's blast. As the two warriors struggle to overpower each other, Piccolo, Tien, Yamcha, and Krillin bombard Cell with ki blasts in a knowingly futile attempt to help, but are easily repelled. As Goku coaxes Gohan to release his full power against Cell, Vegeta returns to the battlefield and launches one final Big Bang Attack, which temporarily distracts Cell.
Seeing the opportunity, Gohan finally releases his full strength, and Goku briefly returns from Other World to help boost Gohan's power. Together, they overpower Cell's blast, obliterating Cell and saving the Earth from destruction. Gohan has won and the Cell Games are finally over. 97 "Farewell with a Smile!

Mr. Satan, however, takes credit for defeating Cell, and the public celebrates Mr. Satan's "victory." At the Lookout, Dende heals Gohan of his injuries and then summons Shenron. The first wish is used to successfully revive everyone killed by Cell, including Trunks.
However, Goku cannot be revived, as Shenron has already brought him back to life once before. Dende suggests they can use the Namekian Dragon Balls, but at that moment, Goku contacts them from Other World through King Kai once more. Goku states his wish to remain dead, believing that the Earth will be safer without him attracting anymore villains there. With that, Goku bids his son and friends a final fond farewell.
Krillin then asks Shenron to use the second wish to remove the bombs from inside Androids #17 and #18. The Z Fighters go their separate ways, and Gohan informs a heartbroken Chi-Chi of Goku's fate. The next day, Trunks bids farewell to everyone and begins his journey back to the future.

As tranquility seems to return, the androids are attacking again. Trunks saves an elderly man from being killed by Androids #17 and #18. Thanks to his training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Trunks easily destroys the two androids. Three years later, Trunks prepares to head back into the past to tell everyone of his victory. However, there is still one more android to stop: Cell, in his Imperfect Form.
After a brief fight, Trunks launches Cell into the air and destroys him with ease as well. Peace is finally restored to the future timeline.

Gohan returns home later that night, where Chi-Chi and Gohan's little brother, Goten, discover that Gohan now has a costume to conceal his identity while fighting crime. The next day, Videl is called in to stop a bus hijacking and handles the criminals, but the bus falls off a cliff, as nobody is driving the vehicle.
Gohan uses the alias "Great Saiyaman" once again and pitches in to save Videl and the passengers. 101 (N/A)[n 2] "Videl's Crisis? Gohan's Urgent Call-out!" – January 21, 2017 Soon after, Gohan saves the passengers of a plane about to crash and extinguished a fire that caught fire in a building in the city by destroying the water container. On his way to school, Gohan is chased by Videl in her helicopter, who is trying to find out who is hiding under the mask of Great Saiyaman.
Gohan escapes by placing Videl's helicopter on the roof of a building. Both of them arrive to school late, which leads Videl to be even more suspicious of Gohan. Later, kidnappers from the Red Shark gang take the mayor of Satan City hostage. The police warn Videl of the situation. Videl confronts the leader of the gang. Great Saiyaman comes to the rescue, but Videl manages to beat him. Gohan saves the mayor of the city while stopping the attempts of the rest of the gang.

Videl discovers the truth that Gohan is Great Saiyaman. Videl blackmails Gohan into participating in the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament.

This finally gives Gohan and Goten the opportunity to resume their training for the tournament.
On the day of the tournament, Gohan suggests to Vegeta, Goten, and Trunks that they do not use their Super Saiyan forms during the tournament in order to avoid hassle from the press. Arriving at the island where the tournament will take place, Gohan and the others are greeted by Goku, whom Fortuneteller Baba had granted 24 hours visit to Earth. Goku meets Goten for the first time, while Piccolo destroys all the cameras in the area to keep Gohan's identity a secret.

Goku gets paired up against Vegeta. 110 (105) "What’s the Matter, Piccolo?! An Unexpected Conclusion to the First Round" / "What Happened, Piccolo?

Android 18 is put up against Mr. Satan. After Krillin wins his first match against his opponent, Piccolo and Shin face off against each other. As Piccolo senses an overwhelming power coming from Shin, he decides to forfeit the match before it even begins. Piccolo feels Shin's power is far beyond his own. Videl prepares to go up against a man named Spopovitch. 111 (N/A)[n 2] "An Eerie Entity; Who Exactly Is Spopovitch?" – April 1, 2017 Piccolo abandons his fight against Shin.
Piccolo learns from Kibito that Shin is actually the Supreme Kai. The Supreme Kai is believed to be even more powerful than the Grand Kai. Videl is fighting against Spopovitch. Videl appears to get the upper hand in her match, but Spopovitch keeps getting up no matter how many times he is knocked down. He eventually fights back. Goku suspects that something is amiss about Spopovitch. Goku realizes that Spopovitch is no longer the same person as in the past and thinks that Videl must abandon the fight.
The last time Spopovitch participated in the tournament, he barely lasted 5 seconds in front of Mr. Satan. Something has changed in him. He has acquired new powers. This proves true when he continues fighting even after Videl breaks his neck. Seeing his opponent tired, Spopovitch regains the lead over Videl. Videl attempts to use her flight to regain her strength, but Spopovitch follows her into the air and uses an energy blast against her.
As Videl refuses to give up despite the beating she is taking, Goku wonders where Spopovitch got his power from. 112 (106) "Videl is Worn Ragged, Gohan's Anger at its Limits!!" / Videl Battered!

Spopovitch's partner, Yamu, convinces Spopovitch to end the fight by pushing Videl out of the ring. With Videl heavily injured, Goku uses his Instant Transmission to gather some Senzu beans from Korin. Videl is sent to the infirmary to recover from her injuries. Gohan prepares to fight against Kibito. 113 (N/A)[n 2] "A Creeping Conspiracy! The Target is Gohan" – April 15, 2017 Goku uses his Instant Transmission to deliver some Senzu beans from Korin.
He gives the Senzu beans to Gohan. Gohan rushes to the infirmary to give one to Videl. Gohan gives a Senzu bean to Videl to restore her to full health. Gohan's identity as Great Saiyaman is revealed to his classmates after his bandana was blown off during his outburst. Gohan steps up to face against Kibito, who requests to see Gohan's Super Saiyan transformation. After Piccolo informs the other Z-Fighters of Shin's identity as the Supreme Kai, he orders Gohan to transform.
Shin asks Goku and the others not to intervene. Right after Gohan transforms, Spopovitch and Yamu appear and hold Gohan down. Spopovitch and Yamu use a device to drain his Super Saiyan energy. Spopovitch and Yamu's mission is accomplished. Spopovitch and Yamu fly away. Gohan is left weakened. As Kibito offers to heal Gohan to full health, the Supreme Kai asks Goku and the others to join him in pursuing the culprits.

Kibito, Gohan, and Videl set off after the others.
Along the way, the Supreme Kai and Kibito explain to the others about how an evil wizard named Babidi is seeking to revive an evil being known as Majin Buu, who was responsible for the death of four Supreme Kais long ago. To accomplish this, he manipulated Spopovitch and Yamu to join the tournament and steal the Super Saiyan energy needed to break the seal placed on Buu. Unable to push her flight any further, Videl places her faith in Gohan and returns to the tournament grounds.
Videl comes to understand that Gohan was the one who defeated Cell seven years ago. Gohan and Kibito catch up to Goku's group. They arrive at the site of a buried spaceship. The Supreme Kai, Kibito, Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, and Krillin watch as Spopovitch and Yamu deliver Gohan's energy to Babidi and his partner, Dabura, the Demon King. 115 (108) "The Heinous Mage Babidi and King of the Underworld Dabura's Trap" / "The Nefarious Wizard Babidi And Demon King Dabura's Trap""Gokuaku Madōshi Babidi to Ankoku Makai no Ō Dābura no Wana" (極悪魔導師バビディと暗黒魔界の王ダーブラの罠) June 8, 2014 April 29, 2017 Supreme Kai and Kibito warn Goku and the others about the malicious pair.
Dabura is the strongest being of the Demon world. Babidi possesses magic powerful enough to sway Dabura to become his henchman. Babidi obtained the energy from Spopovitch and Yamu. Babidi deems Spopovitch and Yamu to be of no further use to him. Babidi kills Spopovitch with his magic. Babidi's other henchman, Pui Pui, kills Yamu. Babidi, Pui Pui, and Dabura detected the presence of the Z fighters.
Babidi and Pui Pui head inside the spaceship. Dabura attacks Goku and the others. He immediately kills Kibito. Dabura fires his spit at Krillin and Piccolo, which turns them into stone. Goku and the others learn that they can only free Krillin and Piccolo by killing Dabura. Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, and the Supreme Kai chase after Dabura into the spaceship despite the Supreme Kai's warnings. Upon reaching the first floor, they are confronted by Pui Pui, who informs them they must face several floors before they can reach Babidi at the bottom.
Goku, Vegeta, and Gohan do not think much of their opponent and play a game of rock-paper-scissors to decide who should fight him. Vegeta prepares to fight Pui Pui. 116 (109) "Don't Underestimate a Super Saiyan! Vegeta and Goku's Full Throttle Power!" / "Don't Sell Super Saiyans Short!

(超サイヤ人をナメるな！ベジータと悟空の全開パワー！) June 15, 2014 May 6, 2017 Vegeta outmatches Pui Pui in terms of fighting skill.
Babidi changes the stage to match that of the high gravity planet, Zun, where Pui Pui is at his top fighting form. This makes no difference to Vegeta, who obliterates his opponent and opens the way to the next floor. Believing that the Saiyans should not be underestimated, Babidi sends in his next warrior, Yakon. Babidi changes the stage to match that of Planet Ankoku. Even with the aid of the pitch black darkness, Yakon is no match for Goku's keen senses.
When Goku turns Super Saiyan, Yakon uses his ability to consume light and sucks in Goku's energy, which causes Goku to revert to his normal state. Rather than finding an alternative way to fight, Goku feeds him more Super Saiyan energy until Yakon explodes from being overloaded. This allows Goku and the others to move onto the next stage. 117 (110) "Who is the World's Greatest?! A Battle Royal Match to Decide!!" / "Whither Victory?

He goes inside a meditation chamber to raise his power before his battle. Meanwhile, back at the tournament, Goten and Trunks take a break from their Mighty Mask disguise to get some drinks. They barely avoid having their cover blown. With Goku and the other members still missing, Mr. Satan suggests that a battle royal be held between the remaining contestants. As the match begins, Killa and Jewel are quickly dispatched by Android #18 and Mighty Mask.
Android #18 and Mighty Mask ignore Mr. Satan and fight each other. 118 (111) "The Fearsome Children!! #18's Great Struggle" / "Stunning Youngsters! No. 18's Uphill Battle""Chibikko Osorubeshi!!

She manages to land a critical hit against Goten and Trunks and knocks them into the center of the stage. Goten and Trunks decide to switch places with Goten now on top and Trunks now on the bottom. This pushes Android #18 to the point, where she starts using energy blasts against them. Android #18 manages to hit back with support from her daughter Marron. Goten and Trunks decide to go Super Saiyan and launch a powerful blast at Android #18.
She manages to dodge it and reveal their true identity. This results in the disqualification of Goten and Trunks, who was disguised as Mighty Mask and had also broken the rules of the Tournament and Goten and Trunks are forced to flee. Android #18 and Mr. Satan are the only remaining fighters left in the battle royal. Goten and Trunks come across Videl upon her return. Dabura emerges from his meditation chamber.
He is ready to face off against Gohan. 119 (112) "The Star Performer Takes the Stage! Take Down the Demon King!!" / "Enter the Headliner! The Looming Demon King!""Shin'uchi Tōjō! Tachihadakaru Maō!!"

Satan to let him win the match and maintain his dignity in exchange for twice the prize money. Meanwhile, Goten and Trunks heard about the current situation from Videl. They become interested and head towards the action. Back at the spaceship, Dabura appears before Gohan and decides to give him a handicap by choosing an arena similar to Earth's environment. As the fight gets underway, both Gohan and Dabura bring out their full power against each other.
Despite being hit by some of Dabura's powerful attacks, Gohan refuses to lose against him. Meanwhile, Videl tells Goten and Trunks about their fathers and Gohan have left to stop a wizard named Babidi and Goten and Trunks decide to go there to see what is going on. 120 (113) "A Wicked Heart is Revived, Prince of Destruction Vegeta!" / "A Heart of Evil Awakened; Vegeta, Prince of Destruction""Yomigaeru Jashin Hakai ōji Bejīta!"

Dabura decides to abandon the fight and report to Babidi. Babidi and Dabura learn Vegeta still retains a lot of evil in his heart. Babidi uses his magic to target Vegeta's mind and sway him over to his side. To make matters worse, Babidi transports everyone to the tournament grounds, where Vegeta is still focused on his desire to defeat Goku. Majin Vegeta prepares to face off against Goku even with innocent bystanders watching.

Goku realizes that Vegeta had fallen under Babidi's spell on purpose for the sake of his grudge against Goku.
Goku is left with no choice but to fight against him despite Supreme Kai's attempt to stop him. Goku asks Babidi to warp them to someplace else, where they can fight alone. Supreme Kai and Gohan decide to go on ahead and leave Goku and Majin Vegeta to their fight. Babidi attempts to command Majin Vegeta to kill them. Majin Vegeta's pride allows him to defy even Babidi's demands. 122 (115) "Countdown to Revival: Crush Babidi’s Ambitions!""Fukkatsu e no Kauntodaun, Babidi no Yabō o Uchikudake!"

Gohan and Supreme Kai arrive at Majin Buu's egg, where they are confronted by Babidi and Dabura. Before the fight between them can begin, Majin Buu's egg reaches full power because of the energy released during Goku and Majin Vegeta's battle.

Majin Vegeta reveals he chose to go under Babidi's control in order to gain the strength to face off against Goku. Majin Vegeta feels he needs to get rid of his gentle side. As the seal containing Majin Buu starts to break, Gohan attempts to stop Majin Buu from reaching full power by shooting multiple Kamehameha blasts at the egg in an attempt to destroy it. The egg splits apart. Only pink smoke comes out of it.
Supreme Kai is lead to presume Majin Buu had been destroyed. However, Gohan senses a powerful energy from the pink smoke, which coalesces together to form Majin Buu. Majin Buu appears to be nothing more than a mere fat child. 124 (117) "A Straight Line to Despair!? Terror of Majin Buu" / "Straightaway Into Despair? The Terror of Majin Buu""Zetsubō e Itchokusen!?

They are curious as to whether his rebirth was actually unsuccessful. However, Majin Buu soon shows off his frightening strength when he effortlessly beats Dabura. The rise in Majin Buu's power level catches the attention of the other Saiyans. Although Goku tries to convince Majin Vegeta to postpone the fight in order to stop Majin Buu, Majin Vegeta knocks out Goku when he drops his guard after Majin Vegeta realized that he let Buu out of his shell and decides to make the right decision for himself.
Majin Vegeta takes Goku's last Senzu bean and sets off to fight Majin Buu himself. Gohan and Supreme Kai attempt to flee from Majin Buu, but he easily catches up to them. Majin Buu proves himself immune to Supreme Kai's attacks. 125 (118) "Turn Into Sweets! A Hungry Majin's Weird Power" / "Turn Into Candy! A Hungry Majin's Bizarre Power!""Okashi ni Nacchae!

Supreme Kai uses the last of his strength to make sure Gohan survives Majin Buu's attack. Majin Vegeta has witnessed that Gohan has been killed and decides to blow up Babidi's spaceship. Before Majin Buu can destroy Supreme Kai, he is attacked by Dabura, who believes he cannot be made to obey anyone. Meanwhile, Goten and Trunks arrive nearby. Trunks inadvertently breaks the petrified Piccolo. Unfazed by Dabura's attacks, Majin Buu uses his unique ability to turn Dabura into a cookie and eats him.
This nullifies the petrification on Krillin and Piccolo. Piccolo survived being broken thanks to his regenerative abilities. Before Majin Buu can do the same to Supreme Kai, Majin Vegeta arrives on the scene. 126 (119) "I'll Take Care of the Majin, Vegeta's Final Desperate Battle!" / "I Will Deal With the Majin!

Majin Vegeta begins his assault on Majin Buu after confronting him for killing Gohan as Piccolo becomes shocked and horrified of what Vegeta has said. He manages to blast a hole through him. However, Majin Buu manages to regenerate himself and builds up his anger to create a giant explosion. This deals a great amount of damage to Majin Vegeta. 127 (120) "For Those Whom He Loves...

Piccolo attacks the defenseless Babidi and rips him to pieces. Feeling he cannot defeat Majin Buu with conventional means, Majin Vegeta says his farewells to Trunks before knocking both children out.
Majin Vegeta instructs Piccolo to take them far away and Piccolo warns Majin Vegeta that he is going to die. Majin Vegeta tells Piccolo if he is still going to see Goku in Otherworld, but Piccolo tells him no, because of his selfishness, he will lose his body when he dies, but Majin Vegeta doesn't care and tells Piccolo to leave. Once everyone is cleared from the scene, Majin Vegeta uses his last resort move.
Majin Vegeta overloads his Super Saiyan form and sacrifices himself in a massive self-destructive explosion in order to obliterate Majin Buu. 128 (121) "The Nightmare Returns, The Immortal Monster, Majin Buu!" / "A Nightmare Revisited: The Immortal Monster Majin Buu!""Akumu Sairai, Fujimi no Kaibutsu, Majin Bū!"

They are saved by Android #18. After Majin Vegeta's body turns into stone and disintigrates following his self-destructive explosion, Piccolo leaves Goten and Trunks with Krillin. Piccolo tells Krillin to inform the others that Majin Vegeta and possibly Gohan have been killed. He investigates the site of Majin Vegeta's sacrificial attack and finds various charred fragments of Majin Buu. Babidi narrowly survived the explosion.
However, Piccolo is shocked to witness Majin Buu's fragments suddenly come to life and reassemble to bring Majin Buu back to his normal form. Majin Buu uses his power to heal Babidi, who vows to make the planet suffer. Piccolo decides to take Goten and Trunks up to Dende's Lookout. Goku regains consciousness and tries to determine the situation after learning that Vegeta knocked him unconscious and decided to fight Buu alone and also took the last sensu bean and decides to teleport to Kami's Lookout as he witnessed that Piccolo and Krillin are restored to normal.

They come up against a large dragon while trying to get the last Dragon Ball. Piccolo and Krillin leave Goten and Trunks in the care of Dende and Mr. Popo. They are soon joined by Goku, who learns about the situation. Goku states he is not strong enough to defeat Majin Buu. He mentions having learned a technique known as Fusion, which allows two similarly built fighters to merge together to become a single powerful fighter.
Goku had originally planned to do this himself with either Gohan or Vegeta. Goku realizes from Mr. Popo that he can instead teach this technique to Goten and Trunks due to their similar size. 130 (123) "A Faint Hope in Sight! The Warriors Wake Up!!" / "Found!

She uses one of its wishes to bring back everyone who had been killed that day. As using all three wishes would mean they would have to wait another year before they can use the Dragon Balls again, Goku warps over to Bulma's group and convinces Shenron to postpone the other two wishes. This shortens the time to four months when summoning Shenron again. Kibito was revived by the wish. Kibito manages to find Supreme Kai and heal his injuries.
Supreme Kai and Kibito manage to find Gohan. They decide to bring him to the Sacred World of the Kais. Goku uses his Instant Transmission to teleport Bulma and the others to Dende's Lookout, where he informs them of the grim situation concerning Gohan and Vegeta which shocks the others, including Chi-Chi, Videl and Bulma. Afterwards, Babidi announces his message to the world. 131 (124) "Find the Nuisances, Babidi's Revenge Plan Begins!!" / "Find the Nuisances: Babidi's Retaliation Begins!""Jama-sha o Sagase, Babidi no Fukushū Sakusen Kaishi!"

This prompts Goten and Trunks to contact him. Goten and Trunks inform him that they will soon grow strong enough to defeat them. Goten and Trunks begin their Fusion training. They learn how to match their Super Saiyan energy with each other. Meanwhile, Babidi learns where Trunks lives. He announces his plans to attack Capsule Corporation in West City. 133 (126) "Delay Majin Buu, The Limit! Super Saiyan 3!!" / "Hold Majin Buu in Check!

Goku leaves to delay Majin Buu and Babidi. In order to buy Trunks some time, Goku builds up a large amount of energy. This also uses some of his remaining time on Earth. Goku transforms into his ultimate form that follows Super Saiyan 2 known as Super Saiyan 3.

Trunks arrives at Capsule Corporation, but he struggles to find where the Dragon Radar is. Bulma realizes that she had left the Dragon Radar in her airplane. She manages to inform Trunks about it. Goku senses Trunks has accomplished his mission. Goku undoes his Super Saiyan 3 transformation once more. He takes his leave after informing Majin Buu that Trunks and Goten will be ready to fight him in two days.

Goku has less than thirty minutes left on Earth due to the energy spent in the Super Saiyan 3 form. Goku wastes no time teaching Goten and Trunks the key to the Fusion technique.

Meanwhile, Goten and Trunks are slightly bored from their training. They ask Goku to show them his Super Saiyan 3 transformation. Upon doing this, Goku uses up the remainder of his time on Earth. After saying goodbye to everyone, Goku returns to the afterlife and leaves the Fusion training in the hands of Piccolo.

Meanwhile, Majin Buu has already killed two thirds of Earth's population. He comes across a blind young boy and heals his vision. Majin Buu becomes surprised when he thanks him instead of being afraid. With Gohan growing more proficient with the Z-Sword, Goku tests out the sword's sharpness by throwing a metal cube at it. Gohan inadvertently breaks the sword in half instead. From the broken sword emerges the Supreme Kai of fifteen generations ago, Old Kai.

This turns out to be a lengthy process that can take over a day to complete. Meanwhile, Goten and Trunks try out the Fusion Pose for real, but an error in the Fusion Pose results in the merged fighter, Gotenks, ending up with a failed transformation. After another failure, Goten and Trunks eventually perform a successful fusion and transform into the true Gotenks. Gotenks is confident that he can defeat Majin Buu with his current power level.

Despite showing a great amount of strength, Gotenks is overwhelmed by Majin Buu's power. Gotenks barely manages to escape from Majin Buu after he launches an all-out attack against the armed forces.

Meanwhile, Goten and Trunks learn how to perform the fusion while in Super Saiyan form to become Super Gotenks. Gotenks' cockiness almost leads him to confront Majin Buu again, but he ends up retreating when the fusion time runs out. Elsewhere, Majin Buu inadvertently befriends a small dog after healing its injured leg, while Mr. Satan almost manages to convince Majin Buu to stop killing humans. However, a hunter looking to take down Majin Buu for himself relentlessly shoots the dog, which leaves Majin Buu shocked and infuriated.

Satan discovers that the dog is barely alive. Majin Buu manages to heal the dog just in time. As Majin Buu, Mr. Satan, and the dog start becoming closer, Mr. Satan decides to stop taking advantage of Majin Buu's innocence and becomes his earnest friend. However, one of the thugs from earlier shows up and shoots Mr. Satan, which causes Majin Buu to be overcome with anger. After healing Mr. Satan, Majin Buu instructs him and the dog to get away from him.
The evil in his body escapes and transforms into a tall, grey, emaciated version of Majin Buu. 142 (135) "Buu Eats Buu - A New Majin Attacks!!" / "Buu Gobbles Up Buu! Onslaught of a New Majin!""Bū ga Bū o Tabechatta, Aratana Majin Shūrai!!" (ブウがブウを食べちゃった 新たな魔人襲来!!) December 21, 2014 December 9, 2017 Majin Buu attempts to fight against the Evil Buu, but he finds out that he is much weaker.
Most of his power had been transferred over to his evil side. As a result, Evil Buu manages to reflect Majin Buu's candy attack back at him, turning him into chocolate, before eating him. This allows Evil Buu to gain Majin Buu's power, which gives him a more complete form. Sensing the energy of Piccolo and the others, Evil Buu arrives at Dende's Lookout and demands to fight against Gotenks. Piccolo attempts to stall for time by telling Evil Buu to wait until all of the Earthlings are killed.
Piccolo instructs Krillin to bring Goten and Trunks to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, in order to make use of what little time they have. 143 (136) "Head Straight towards the Catastrophe! One Hour Time Limit!!" / "Headlong Rush Into Catastrophe! A One-Hour Time Limit!""Hakyoku e Masshigura! Taimu Rimitto wa Ichi Jikan!!" (破局へまっしぐら！タイムリミットは1時間!!) December 28, 2014 December 16, 2017 Piccolo's hopes of being able to buy some time are dashed when Super Buu unleashes a powerful homing attack, which targets and kills every human on the Earth except for Mr.
Satan, Tien, and Chiaotzu. Piccolo, along with Videl, manages to convince Super Buu to wait for an hour so that Goten and Trunks can train. Meanwhile, Gohan is tired of waiting any longer for Old Kai's power-up. However, he discovers that he has indeed managed to increase his power, so Gohan agrees to wait for the power-up to be completed. Becoming further angered when Super Buu kills an impatient Chi-Chi, Goten barely holds in his anger and joins Trunks in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber after Piccolo informs Goten that Chi-Chi and Gohan will be brought back to life with the Dragon Balls.
With Super Buu growing impatient after only thirty minutes, Piccolo tries to buy as much time as possible as he slowly leads Super Buu to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Piccolo believes that even if Goten and Trunks fail, they can destroy the Hyperbolic Time Chamber's entrance and trap him there. 144 (137) "Special Training Completed! You're Finished Now, Majin Buu!!" / "Training Complete! You're Finished Now, Majin Buu!""Tokkun Kanryō! Kore de Owari da Majin Bū!!" (特訓完了！これで終わりだ魔人ブウ) January 11, 2015 January 6, 2018 Piccolo continues to lead Super Buu to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, while Goten and Trunks train hard to avenge the loved ones that they have lost.
After rerouting Super Buu through Dende's Lookout, Super Buu is extremely unhappy and throws tantrums. Due to this, Piccolo finally takes Super Buu to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. After a warm-up round and playing around, Super Buu and Gotenks begin to fight. Gotenks decides to use some of his new special moves. The problem is that these moves, while flashy, are ineffective against Super Buu. The special moves used by Gotenks have ridiculous names such as the "Screaming Angry Wombat".
After it is clear that these moves have no effect, Gotenks talks strategy with Piccolo. He creates a ring of energy called the "Galactic Doughnut" and uses it to trap Super Buu. After a brief struggle, Super Buu is able to break the ring. 145 (138) "Buu Eliminated With Ghosts! A Surefire Kamikaze Attack!!" / "Eliminating Buu with Ghosts: A Knockout Kamikaze Attack!""Obake de Bū Taiji Hissatsu! Kamikaze Atakku!!" (オバケでブウ退治 必殺！カミカゼアタック!!) January 18, 2015 January 13, 2018 Gotenks and Super Buu continue to fight.
Gotenks decides to use another one of his special moves called the Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack. He spits out a ghost of himself, and he plans to use it against Super Buu. Gotenks creates ten ghosts that detonate with explosive force when they are touched. He sends all but one at Super Buu, and they reduce him to a deformed puddle of his former self. Gotenks sends the final one down Super Buu's mouth and blows him into tiny pieces.
Gotenks and Piccolo destroy all of the pieces, but the smoke coming from the pieces gathers above their heads and reforms Super Buu. To play up the drama of the situation, Gotenks acts like he is out of ideas. Super Buu begins beating up Super Saiyan Gotenks. Thinking that Gotenks cannot stop Super Buu, Piccolo destroys the door to the outside world, which traps the three of them in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber for all eternity.
146 (139) "The Reserved Transformation of Gotenks! Super Gotenks 3!!" / "Gotenks' Ace in the Hole! Transformation! Super Gotenks 3!""Gotenkusu no Totte Oki Henshin! Sūpā Gotenkusu Surī!!" (ゴテンクスのとっておき 変身！超ゴテンクス３！！) January 25, 2015 January 20, 2018 Hysterically upset at the prospect of being trapped in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber forever with nothing to destroy and no candy to eat, Super Buu starts to scream.
To everyone's surprise, including his own, his screams become so powerful that they create a hole in the barrier between the dimensions of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber and Earth. Super Buu changes shape in order to fit through it, and the hole closes. This leaves Piccolo and Gotenks trapped. Back on Dende's Lookout, Super Buu is hungry and excited at the prospect of turning more people into food. He turns everyone on Dende's lookout into chocolate.
Piccolo and Gotenks have been attempting to scream loud enough to create an inter-dimensional hole like Super Buu did, but they have no success. Gotenks decides to play his trump card and transforms into a Super Saiyan 3. In this state, he has the power necessary to create a hole for him and Piccolo to jump through. Upon their return to Dende's Lookout, they were too late. Super Buu tells Gotenks that he ate all of his friends and family.
Gotenks is enraged. Gotenks promises Super Buu that he will pay. 147 (140) "In High Spirits! Buu-Buu Volleyball!" / "On a Roll! Buu-Buu-Volleyball!""Nori-Nori! Bū-Bū Barēbōru!" (ノリノリ！ブウブウバレーボール！) February 1, 2015 January 27, 2018 Gotenks and Super Buu begin to fight, and the collateral damage from the battle begins to destroy Dende's Lookout. Super Buu slams Gotenks down through Dende's Lookout itself.
Down on Earth, Gotenks tries another Super Ghost Kamikaze attack, but it once again fails. Super Buu lands a powerful hit on Gotenks that sends him flying back onto Dende's Lookout. Super Buu folds himself into a ball and begins repeatedly shooting himself through Dende's Lookout until all that is left is rubble floating in the air. While still in a ball, Gotenks is able to trap him in a little sphere.
He and Piccolo play some volleyball with Super Buu, and Gotenks spikes him down to Earth. Just when it seems like Super Buu is dead, a powerful blast of energy comes from the crater. With Super Buu once again ready to fight, Gotenks only has a few minutes left until he separates. 148 (141) "You Kept Everyone Waiting! A Reborn Gohan Returns to Earth!!" / "Thanks for Waiting, Everyone! A Reborn Gohan Heads for Earth!""O Matase Min'na! Shinsei Gohan, Chikyū e!!" (お待たせみんな！新生悟飯、地球へ!!) February 8, 2015 TBA Gotenks and Buu continue their fight.
Gotenks seems to be wearing Buu down, and he now has the upper hand in the fight. Just as he's about to hit Buu with his final move, Gotenks unexpectedly returns straight to his normal state from his Super Saiyan 3 form. The power was too high for him to sustain. Buu begins beating up Gotenks, who is now no match for him. Gohan has finally finished his training, and is ready to return to earth. After saying goodbye to Goku for what they both believe will be the last time, Kibito takes him back, and Gohan asks him to change his clothes.
He's now wearing clothes just like Goku's, and arrives just in time, because Gotenks has separated. 149 (142) "Buu is Overwhelmed! Ultimate Gohan's Superpower!!" / "Buu Overwhelmed! Ultimate Gohan's Super Power!""Bū o Attō! Arutimetto Gohan no Sūpā Pawā!!" (ブウを圧倒！究極悟飯の超パワー！！) February 15, 2015 TBA Gohan arrives at the scene, and everyone is shocked at how much power he has and is not dead.
After Gohan expertly pounds him to a pulp, Buu heals himself and steps up the intensity, but Gohan still has the upper hand. He is easily picking Buu apart. Realizing that he's totally outmatched, Buu decides to self-destruct, hoping to take Gohan with him. Gohan escapes before Buu explodes, and he takes the others with him out of the blast radius. Afterwards, there is no sign of Buu, but Gohan knows that he's still around.
They suddenly detect Dende's energy signal, and they go to find him. On the way, they pick up Mr. Satan and the dog, Bee. Dende explains that as Buu was escaping through the interdimensional hole, Mr. Popo threw him from the lookout, because without Dende, there would be no Dragon Balls to grant the wishes they intend to use to reverse all the damage. Buu tracks them down, but instead of having a rematch with Gohan, he calls out Goten and Trunks.
150 (143) "Buu's Trick - Gotenks is Absorbed?!" / "Buu's Sinister Scheme: Gotenks is Absorbed""Bū no Warudakumi Gotenkusu Kyūshū!?" (ブウの悪巧み ゴテンクス吸収！？) March 1, 2015 TBA Unknown to the others, Buu secretly separates two chunks from his back, and the two pink blobs creep around behind the others. As soon as Goten and Trunks fuse, one of the blobs encases Gotenks.
Piccolo, too, has been covered by a pink blob. Buu calls each of the blobs back to him, which merge with him, changing his appearance and giving him access to all of Piccolo's and Gotenks' memories, abilities, and power. The new and improved Super Buu then fights Gohan, and it's clear that Buu has the advantage. Gohan is unable to keep up with Buu's new speed and strength. Buu taunts Gohan by telling him what his three friends that were absorbed think of him.
151 (144) "The Great Kaiōshin's Bright Idea! Son Goku is Revived!!" / "The Elder Kai's Brainstorm! Return to Life, Goku""Dai Kaiōshin no Myōan! Yomigaere Son Gokū!!" (大界王神の妙案！よみがえれ孫悟空！！) March 15, 2015 TBA Gohan is no match for the new Super Buu. Buu now possesses new skills, such as the Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack and the Special Beam Cannon, each of which he uses on Gohan.
He is about to finish Gohan, when Bee comes running up. Mr. Satan tries to save Bee, but is only several times stronger than the average human - nothing compared to Buu. Buu is about to blast each of them when Gohan saves them. Buu then uses Gotenks' Galactic Doughnut trick on Gohan, and aims a Kamehameha at him, but Gohan is able to summon enough strength to break free and move out of the way in time.
Meanwhile, in Other World, King Yemma decides to send Vegeta back to earth to help in the fight against Majin Buu. On the world of the Kais, Old Kai decides to give his life to Goku so he can return to Earth and fight Buu. The now deceased Old Kai gives Goku his Potara Earrings. He explains to Goku that if he and another person each wear one, they will fuse together. 152 (145) "One Time Only Miracle… Will the Super Combination With That Guy Come About?" / "Miracles Happen Once.
.. Will Goku and He Make the Ultimate Combination?""Kiseki wa Ichido… Naru ka Gokū to Aitsu Chō-Gattai" (奇跡は一度… なるか悟空とアイツの超合体) March 22, 2015 TBA Old Kai tells Supreme Kai and Kibito to try a fusion with their earrings, but only after they fuse together does he reveal that it is a permanent fusion (though the fusion will only last for 1 hour for mortals).
Dende heals Gohan's injuries, so to prevent this from happening again, Buu creates a giant energy ball and aims it at Dende. Just before it hits, it is deflected by Tien's Tri-Beam attack, who has decided to help, even though he is terribly outclassed. Buu tries again, but Goku suddenly appears and sends a disk of energy at the monster. It cuts off his legs and part of his head. His legs deal Tien a crushing kick which completely incapacitates him and then they return to Buu.
Desperate to stop Majin Buu, Goku throws Gohan the other earring, but his aim is off and the earring is lost in the rubble. Goku goes Super Saiyan 3 in an attempt to hold Buu off while Gohan searches for the earring. Inside Super Buu, Gotenks' fusion wears off, splitting back into Trunks and Goten, causing Buu to lose well over a third of his power and his appearance to change. Realizing what's happened, Goku declares he can now defeat Majin Buu without fusing with Gohan and prepares to fight.
Knowing he needs a massive power increase, Buu causes the part of his head that was cut off earlier to suddenly engulf Gohan, just like Piccolo and Gotenks. He reabsorbs the blob containing Gohan, and is now even more powerful than he was with Gotenks absorbed. Now back in control, Buu toys with Goku, telling him he has some time to find someone to fuse with. He considers fusions with Dende and Mr.
Satan, but neither of them are appealing possibilities. He suddenly senses that Vegeta has returned, and uses Instant Transmission to teleport to his location. While Buu is distracted, Dende heals Tien. After Goku finds Vegeta, Goku tries to convince him to fuse, but Vegeta is angry at Goku because he knows Goku was holding back his Super Saiyan 3 transformation when they fought. With Vegeta refusing to cooperate, they are forced to take on Buu as individuals, but are clearly outclassed.
Goku tells Vegeta that Buu absorbed Trunks and killed Bulma and asks him to put their differences aside to save their people. Vegeta finally agrees, and only when he puts on the earring does Goku mention that the fusion is permanent. The two last surviving Saiyans fuse and a new being is created. 153 (146) "Invincible! Ultimate Warrior Vegito!" / "Invincible! The Ultimate Warrior Vegito""Muteki! Kyūkyoku no senshi Bejitto!" (無敵！究極の戦士ベジット！) March 29, 2015 TBA The new being names himself Vegito, and begins to fight Buu.
He clearly is far superior to even the new Super Buu. In Other World, Bulma, Videl, Chi Chi, and Dabura are looking for Gohan, whom they mostly believe to be dead. When Dabura arrived at the Check-in Station, he resisted the guards attempts to subdue his aggressive behavior, and knowing Dabura would enjoy being sent to hell, King Yemma turned him good. Back on earth, Dende and Mr. Satan arrive at the battle scene, just as Buu has decided to destroy the earth.
He creates a massive ball of energy, and throws it towards the earth. Vegito easily catches it, and deflects it back out into space. Buu says that he has yet to fight at his full power. Vegito says the same, and powers up to a Super Saiyan. Now calling himself Super Vegito, he continues to thrash Super Buu. Buu tries to hide himself with his own steam to gain an advantage, but Vegito continues to batter him.
On the Grand Kai's planet, Krillin and Yamcha are training with King Kai. Back on earth, Buu is starting to become desperate. He liquifies himself, and shoots down Vegito's mouth, entering his body and turning him into what looks like a super-muscular version of himself. While inside Vegito, Buu takes control of his body and boasts that he will use his body to destroy him from the inside, but Vegito uses his energy to isolate all of Buu into one spot and pound him.
Buu moves around but Vegito simply continues to pound him. Buu is forced to exit Vegito's body. Realizing he doesn't know how he can save himself, Super Majin Buu begins to freak out, and the immense amount of energy he releases into his surroundings threatens to tear apart the universe itself. Realizing this, Vegito tries to stop him, but Buu has put up a shield around himself. After a long struggle, Vegito breaks through the shield and stops Buu.
154 (147) "The Ace up Buu's Sleeve! The Warriors are Absorbed!!" / "Buu's Ace in the Hole! The Warriors Are Absorbed!""Buu no Oku no Te! Kyūshū Sareta Senshi-tachi!!" (ブウの奥の手！吸収された戦士たち！！) April 5, 2015 TBA Vegito and Buu continue to fight, but Vegito is still far more powerful than his opponent. He repeatedly dominates Buu, which makes Buu angrier and angrier.
Vegito is just toying with him. Buu hatches a plan, and calls Vegito out. Vegito comes closer, and Buu turns him into candy. As Buu celebrates his apparent victory, the Vegito candy unexpectedly begins to attack Buu. It turns out that Vegito is somehow still in full control of his new, candy body, and that he is just as powerful as he was before, and can even still talk. The candy Vegito is just as fast as Super Vegito, and due to its tiny size, is impossible for Buu to hit.
Infuriated at being toyed with by a piece of candy, Buu changes it back into Vegito, who then continues to beat him up. Vegito literally starts tearing Buu apart. He gives Buu until the count of ten until he destroys him, and during this countdown, Buu notices a part of himself that Vegito tore off down on the ground. This part rises up behind Vegito, and before Vegito reaches ten, he is engulfed by the pink blob.
Buu calls the blob back to him and absorbs it. 155 (148) "Rescuing Gohan and Company! Goku and Vegeta's Infiltration Mission!" / "Rescue Gohan and the Others! Goku and Vegeta's Infiltration Mission!""Gohan-tachi o Tasukedase! Gokū to Bejīta no Sennyū Sakusen (Misshon)!" (悟飯たちを助け出せ！悟空とベジータの潜入作戦(ミッション)！) April 12, 2015 TBA After absorbing Vegito, Buu notices that he has not taken on any of his characteristics.
He guesses this is because he hasn't digested Vegito yet. Inside Buu, Vegito still exists intact, separate from Buu. It turns out that Vegito had planned this, putting up a barrier during the absorption, and letting himself be shrunk by Buu's magic absorption process, but not incorporated into his being. Once he dispels the barrier, Vegito unexpectedly splits back into Goku and Vegeta (since non-deities will only remain fused for about 1 hour with the Potara Earrings).
Taking advantage of this unexpected event, Vegeta crushes his fusion earring, not wanting to give up his independence from Goku by permanently fusing with him. He cites that once they free their absorbed friends, Buu will lose most of his power and they won't need to be fused to defeat him. Goku and Vegeta cut down the cocoons of Gohan, Goten, Trunks, and Piccolo, and as they do, Super Buu regresses to his normal form.
Dende and Mr. Satan continue to follow Buu. Back inside Majin Buu, Goku and Vegeta also find the fat Majin Buu. They read his thoughts to find out what happened to him. Suddenly, a thought form of Super Buu himself appears. The two join forces to defeat it, but once they do, another one appears. They realize that this is a battle they cannot win. Buu finally decides that he's had enough, and he tries to absorb Goku and Vegeta.
156 (149) "Emergency Escape from Inside the Body! Buu's Reverse-Transformation is the Worst!!" / "Emergency Escape from the Body! Buu's Retrogression Into Evil!""Tainai Kara Kinkyū Dasshutsu! Bū Saiaku e no Gyaku-Henshin!!" (体内から緊急脱出！ブウ最悪への逆変身！！) April 19, 2015 TBA Goku saves Vegeta from being absorbed. As Vegeta recovers, Goku continues to fight the thought form of Super Buu.
Goku is rapidly losing energy, and just as Super Buu is about to defeat Goku, Vegeta cuts down the pod containing the fat Majin Buu. This causes Super Buu to go mad, as without the fat Majin Buu absorbed, Super Buu cannot exist. As Super Buu's insides begin to change, Goku and Vegeta realize they must leave, and so they grab the pods containing Gohan, Goten, Piccolo and Trunks and try to find a way out.
On their way through his body, they notice one of the tunnels that leads to one of the holes in Buu's skin where the steam escapes. They are able to fly out through here, and when they emerge on the other side, all six of them return to their normal size. As Goku and Vegeta set the pods down, they observe Super Buu changing into a different being. He first transforms into a hulking form, and then shrinks into a childlike version of himself.
157 (150) "Earth Disappears!! The Original Buu's Single Cruel Blast!!" / "Earth Destroyed! The Initial Buu's Nefarious Strike""Chikyū Shōmetsu!! Hajimari no Bū no Hidōna Ichigeki!!" (地球消滅！！始まりのブウの非道な一撃！！) April 26, 2015 TBA Supreme Kai explains to Old Kai that there were once one five Supreme Kais. He was one of the four that each ruled over a quadrant of the universe, and the fifth was their leader.
He says that this latest, childlike version (Kid Buu), is the original, true Majin Buu, and by far the most powerful of them all. Supreme North and West Kai perished against him. Supreme South Kai was absorbed, changing the original Majin Buu into the hulking form that was seen briefly in the previous episode. The leader, Dai Kaio, was then absorbed by that form, but this absorption changed Buu into the fat, happy Buu that came out of the ball.
This absorption of the Kais actually weakened Buu, making him less focused and less destructive. Back on earth, Kid Buu creates a powerful ball of energy and throws it at the earth, intending to destroy it. Goku and Vegeta deflect it. In retaliation, Kid Buu then a creates a ball ten times more powerful than the previous one and throws it. Knowing that they currently do not have enough strength left to stop it, Goku and Vegeta try to grab everyone and teleport away, but are only able to grab Dende, Mr.
Satan, and Bee. As the Earth is about to be destroyed, Supreme Kai appears and instantly transmits Goku, Vegeta, Dende, Mr. Satan, and Bee to the Sacred World of the Kais. 158 (151) "Final Decisive Battle! A Conclusion in the Realm of the Kais!!" / "A Final Showdown at the Summit! Face-Off in the World of the Kais!""Saigo no Chōjō Kessen! Kaiōshin-kai de Ketchaku da!!" (最後の頂上決戦！界王神界で決着だ！！) May 3, 2015 TBA Kid Buu is blasted apart by the explosion, but he reforms after the destruction of the Earth, and goes on a rampage throughout the galaxy.
He goes from planet to planet, looking for Goku and Vegeta, and then destroys each planet when he doesn't find them. He goes to the Grand Kai's planet, and starts to toy with everyone there. When he becomes bored, he creates an energy ball, intending to destroy the Grand Kai's planet. Supreme Kai offers Goku and Vegeta his fusion earrings, but they both refuse them. They raise their power levels so Buu will know where to find them.
Buu abandons his attempt to destroy the Grand Kai's planet and teleports to the Sacred World of the Kais. The Supreme Kai transports himself, Dende, and Old Kai to a distant planet so they will be out of Goku and Vegeta's way, along with a crystal ball that allows them to watch the battle. They forget to take Mr. Satan and Bee along. Goku and Vegeta play rock, paper, scissors to decide who will fight first, and Goku wins.
He powers up to Super Saiyan 2, and starts beating up Buu. Goku blasts him apart, but he reforms. Buu creates another massive energy ball and throws it down at the planet. Goku is able to deflect it, but Buu guides the ball back around and into the planet. Powerful shock waves rock the entire planet, disfiguring its shape, and leaving the surface ragged and uneven. Goku decides to power up to Super Saiyan 3.
159 (152) "Do Your Best, Kakarot! You Are No. 1!!" / "Hang In There, Kakarot! You Are No. 1!""Ganbare Kakarotto! Omae ga Nanbā Wan da!!" (頑張れカカロット！お前がＮｏ．１だ！！) May 10, 2015 TBA Goku and Kid Buu continue to fight, each taking powerful blows from each other. Kid Buu folds himself into a ball again, and hits Goku hard. Goku puts all of his energy into a massive Kamehameha, but Buu just reforms afterward.
Goku returns to his normal state, collapsing from exhaustion. Vegeta then steps in, but that finds he is no match for Buu. Buu cleans his clock, and just as he's about to deal Vegeta the finishing blow, Goku pushes him out of the way. He then powers back up to Super Saiyan 3 and continues their furious fight. Vegeta reminisces about all of the fights he and Goku were in. He finally admits to himself that Goku is stronger.
160 (153) "A One Minute Battle - Vegeta's Life-risking Stall Tactics!" / "A One-Minute Match-Up! Vegeta's Life-Threatening Stall for Time!""Shōbu wa Ippunkan Bejīta Inochigake no Jikan Kasegi!" (勝負は１分間 ベジータ命懸けの時間稼ぎ！) May 17, 2015 TBA Goku continues to fight Buu, and he seems to have the upper hand. He deals a lot of damage to Buu, but as the fight goes on, his hits become weaker and weaker until they have virtually no effect at all.
He tells Vegeta that it's his turn, but Vegeta declines, deciding that he is no match for Buu. He tells Goku that Buu is too powerful for him and that Goku stands a much better chance of destroying him. Goku is shocked and unsettled by this admission, telling Vegeta that he deliberately let the fight drag on so that Vegeta could have a turn, and that now he is exhausted. Vegeta is horrified by this, because now they cannot stop Buu.
Goku unsuccessfully attempts to reassure Vegeta, telling him that he needs one uninterrupted minute to power up enough to destroy Buu. Despite the fact that Vegeta recognizes that he will need a miracle to survive a minute against Buu now, he reluctantly steps in while Goku is powering up as a Super Saiyan 3, even though Goku tells him that if he is destroyed when he is already dead, Vegeta will no longer exist in any form.
Buu thrashes Vegeta, but every time he gets knocked down, Vegeta gets up, ready for more. Buu stretches out his arm, wraps it around Vegeta's neck, and begins choking him for fun. It's been more than one minute, but Goku still hasn't generated the power he needs. 161 (154) "A Secret Plan Comes Together in a Flash - Please Grant These Two Wishes!" / "An Inspired Strategy Make Two Wishes Come True!""Hirameita Hisaku Futatsu no Negai o Kanaetamae!" (閃いた秘策 ２つの願いを叶えたまえ！) May 24, 2015 TBA Fat Majin Buu enters the fight, saving Vegeta from death.
However, he is no match for Kid Buu, who begins to severely beat him. Mr. Satan tries to help Fat Buu, but is ineffective. Vegeta suddenly comes up with a plan. He communicates with Dende, telling him to go to New Namek and gather the Dragon Balls. The Supreme Kai and Old Kai take Dende there, and the Namekians are waiting with the seven balls. Porunga is summoned, and Vegeta tells Dende his two wishes: bring back the earth and restore it to its undamaged state, and bring back all of the non-evil people that died since the morning of the World Martial Arts Tournament.
These wishes are granted, and even Vegeta himself comes back to life, proving that he is no longer evil. He finally reveals the main part of his plan to destroy Buu: the Spirit Bomb. 162 (155) "Give Me Energy! We'll Make a Huge Spirit Bomb!!" / "Share Your Spirit Energy with Me! I'm Making a Huge Spirit Bomb!""Ora ni Genki o Waketekure! Tsukuru ze Dekkai Genki-Dama!!" (オラに元気を分けてくれ！作るぜでっかい元気玉！！) May 31, 2015 TBA The people of earth come back to life, including the Z Fighters and their friends.
Goku gets into position to create the Spirit Bomb, and with the help of King Kai, Vegeta speaks to the entire population of earth. He tells them what's going on, and that to defeat Buu, they need to raise their hands up and offer their energy. Only Goku and Vegeta's family and friends comply. No one else is willing to listen to a mysterious voice from the sky. Vegeta repeatedly pleads with the earthlings, but to no avail.
While this is going on, Fat Buu is buying them time by fighting Kid Buu, but it's not going well. Goku hasn't gathered nearly enough energy to destroy Buu. 163 (156) "The Savior of the World is You! Everyone's Spirit Bomb is Completed!!" / "You Are the Savior of the World! Everybody's Spirit Bomb Completed!""Sekai no Kyūseishu wa Omaeda! Min'na no Genki-Dama Kansei!!" (世界の救世主はおまえだ！みんなの元気玉完成！！) June 7, 2015 TBA Vegeta continues to plead with the people of earth, but no one will listen to him.
Fat Buu has finally lost all of his energy, so Vegeta is forced to fight Kid Buu. He is no match for him, and gets severely beaten. Now Goku asks the earthlings to raise up their arms and donate some of their energy, and small pockets of people who recognize his voice or just like the sound of it do so, but the vast majority remain uninterested. Piccolo, Gohan, Goten, and Trunks spread out into the city, hoping to convince people to raise their arms.
Mr. Satan has finally had enough, and he speaks to the people of earth. When they hear the familiar voice of the "World Champion," all of the people of earth raise their arms and offer their energy. The Spirit Bomb is finally ready. Goku is ready to throw the Spirit Bomb, but Vegeta is in the way, and, despite Vegeta's pleas otherwise, he refuses to take out Vegeta along with Buu. Suddenly, Fat Buu gets up and holds Kid Buu down long enough for Mr.
Satan to pull Vegeta to safety. Kid Buu kicks Fat Buu aside, and Goku throws the Spirit Bomb. 164 (157) "Son Goku Is the Strongest After All!! Majin Buu Is Annihilated" / "You Really Are the Greatest, Goku!! The Demise of Majin Buu""Yappari Saikyō Son Gokū!! Majin Bū Shōmetsu" (やっぱり最強孫悟空！！魔人ブウ消滅) June 14, 2015 TBA The Spirit Bomb hits Kid Buu, but he starts pushing it back.
Goku uses all of the remaining energy he has left trying to push it back into Kid Buu, but he is too powerful. After a brief panic, Vegeta suddenly remembers that they still have a third wish with Porunga. He instructs Dende to wish for Goku's power level to be restored to its normal, healthy level. The wish is granted, and upon turning into a Super Saiyan, Goku is easily able to force the Spirit Bomb back at Kid Buu.
As he does so, he silently wishes that Buu had been a better person, and hopes to fight him as a different person, some day in the future. The Spirit Bomb hits with full force, finally destroying the evil, childlike Majin Buu permanently. After billions of years of destruction, he has finally been brought to justice. 165 (N/A)[n 2] "Peace Has Returned. It's Time to Party!" – TBA 166 (158) "And So, After 10 Years.
.. The First World Martial Arts Tournament in a Long Time!" / "And So, Ten Years Later... A Long-Awaited World Martial Arts Tournament!""Soshite Jūnengo… Hisashiburi no Tenka'ichi Budōkai!" (そして１０年後…久しぶりの天下一武道会！) June 21, 2015 TBA Ten years have passed, and much has changed. Gohan has become a scholar, and Trunks and Goten are in their late teens. Goku is training with Goten when Bulma and Vegeta, who have a new daughter, Bulla, show up after not seeing him in five years.
Goku says that he and Goten will be entering the World Martial Arts Tournament, so Vegeta says that he and Trunks will do the same. The day of the tournament comes, and old friends catch up. Everyone has arrived to watch. Gohan, who is now married to Videl, has decided not to enter, but his daughter, Pan, will fight. Since there is no junior division this time, she will be fighting with the adults.
Mr. Satan and Buu will also be fighting. However, Goku says that there is someone who is 100% human that can threaten to beat him and Vegeta. The seeding draw for the tournament begins, and Goku asks Majin Buu to use his magic to rig it so that he faces the powerful mystery fighter he had talked about. In the first match, Pan faces Wild Tiger, and the four-year-old easily dispatches him. Next up is Goku against a ten-year-old boy named Uub.
Uub is the reincarnation of the evil Kid Majin Buu. King Yemma apparently heard Goku's wish right before the evil Buu was destroyed, and he reincarnated him as a good person named Uub. Uub is apprehensive, so to bait him into fighting, Goku eventually resorts to taunting the young boy. After a particularly nasty insult and a kick to the face, Uub has snapped, and is now ready to fight. 167 (159) "Even Stronger! Goku's Dream Never Ends!!" / "Even Stronger! Goku's Dream is Never-Ending!""Motto Tsuyoku! Gokū no Yume wa Owaranai!!" (もっと強く！悟空の夢は終わらない！！) June 28, 2015 TBA Goku and Uub begin to fight, and it is clear that Uub does not know much about fighting.
But as the match goes on, he grows more and more accustomed to his hidden power, and it is finally released, so he is able to go toe-to-toe with Goku in his base state. When Goku does power up slightly, Uub nearly falls out of the ring, but Goku saves him from hitting the ground. He realizes that Uub doesn't even know how to fly, so Goku decides to train him. Despite his friends and family pleading with Goku to stay, he flies away with Uub on his back.
Goku decides to train Uub to defend the Earth when he's gone. He hopes one day, when Uub's training is complete, to have a real all-out match with him, to test their power. Goku and Uub fly off into the distance, with whoops of joy.
