Four-Star Ball!"

Krillin surrenders his Dragon Ball to Vegeta after Zarbon is killed, knowing he doesn't stand a chance against Vegeta. 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 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. In space, Goku continues his training within his spaceship, now enduring 100-times Earth's gravity.
28 02 "The Countdown to Battle Begins! Enter, The
Ginyu Force!"
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. In space, Goku completes his intense gravity training on the way to Namek and discovers his results are much more impressive than he anticipated.

Freeze!"
October 25, 2009 July 8, 2010
Vegeta, Krillin and Gohan race to the remaining five Dragon Balls that Vegeta had hidden, in an attempt to grant Vegeta the wish of eternal life in order to stand a chance against the Ginyu Force. The Ginyu Force beats them there, and with speed and a time freeze, swipe the two remaining balls. Captain Ginyu takes all 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 04 "The Nightmare Recoome! Come Out and Play,
Vegeta!"
November 1, 2009 July 14, 2010
Vegeta begins battling Recoome, the big brute of the Ginyu Force. 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 spaceship finally touches down on Planet Namek.
31 05 "Goku Arrives At Last! Take Down the Ginyu
Force!"
November 8, 2009 July 15, 2010
Goku enters the battle after giving Senzu beans to Krillin, Gohan and Vegeta, and things quickly take a turn for the better. 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 warrior like himself.
32 06 "The Star Player Appears! Ginyu vs. Goku!" 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 07 "Full Power, Goku! Captain Ginyu’s Desperate
Attack!"
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 08 "Surprise! Goku is Ginyu and Ginyu is Goku!?" 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 09 "Goku’s Comeback! Call Forth Porunga!" 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 10 "Frieza Closes In! Mighty Porunga, Grant Our
Wish!"
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. He speeds angrily to where Porunga is hovering over Namek and almost attacks 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.

Level-One Million!?"
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.

Attack"
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. Unfortunately, it becomes clear that Frieza outclasses them all, so the three warriors begin blasting him with everything they've got.

39 13 "Piccolo Reborn! Frieza's Second Transformation" 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.

Nightmare Begins"
January 17, 2010 October 28, 2010
Frieza dodges Gohan's attack but quickly finds himself on the receiving end once again - the young half Saiyan unleashes a massive ki blast that even the tyrant himself has difficulty deflecting. 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 an energy 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 attack - 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.

Action!"

Vegeta intervenes, using his newfound power and speed to rescue Gohan from Frieza's blast. 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 claims Gohan wouldn't 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.

Vegeta is no match for Frieza and is quickly incapacitated. 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 (as Goku resembles his father Bardock, who was the first to be killed by Frieza when he destroyed Planet Vegeta). When Vegeta mocks Frieza, claiming that Goku is the "real" Super Saiyan, the tyrant blasts his Death Beam at Vegeta through the 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.

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 claims that even after all this, neither Goku nor Frieza is fighting at full power just yet.

Frieza then boosts his power up to 50%, and Goku is quickly overwhelmed, even with the use of the Kaio-ken x10. 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 Kaio-ken x20 alongside a massive Kamehameha blast against Frieza. However, even this is not enough to defeat the tyrant, and the use of the Kaio-ken x20 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.

Bomb!"
February 28, 2010 November 18, 2010
Despite his renewed confidence, Goku realizes he still has no chance of victory using direct physical attacks against Frieza, who is still using only 50% of his full power. At this point, Goku decides to use his ultimate technique - the Spirit Bomb. With so little ki from living things left to absorb on Namek, Goku absorbs ki from neighboring worlds as well. Creating a Spirit Bomb of this size takes extensive time and concentration, and Frieza continues to pummel him. Piccolo decides to intervene, taking what energy Gohan and Krillin have left and attacking Frieza to draw attention away from Goku and the Spirit Bomb he is creating. Before Frieza can obliterate Goku with a beam to the forehead, Piccolo stops him with a full-force kick to the head. The now-distracted Frieza goes after Piccolo, whose attacks do nothing to faze him. The Namekian is quickly floored by Frieza as Goku continues charging the Spirit Bomb.

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 change 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.

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.

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.

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.

Yamcha then escorts Goku back home in order to administer the heart antidote to him. Vegeta 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.

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 the android. 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 Android 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.

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.

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.

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."

Shortly afterward, Trunks and Vegeta emerge from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, stating that they have successfully surpassed the level of Super Saiyan.

As an Ascended Super Saiyan, Vegeta makes easy work of Cell while Trunks watches from the sidelines. Meanwhile, Goku and Gohan begin their training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, where Goku states that he will not only make Gohan a Super Saiyan, but that he will make Gohan stronger than even himself.

Vegeta starts his fight with Cell and after a short while he soon realizes Cell's power far exceeds his own.

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.

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 back 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.

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).

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.

Goku claims that he wishes 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.

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 earrings. He explains to Goku that if he and another person each wear one, they will fuse together.

With That Guy Come About?"
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. 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 the earring on does Goku mention that the fusion is permanent. The two last surviving Saiyans fuse and a new being is created.

153 13 "Invincible! Ultimate Warrior Vegito!" 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 Hercule 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 claims 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 Majin Buu. Buu tries to hide himself with his own steam to gain the 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 him 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. Realising 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 14 "The Ace up Buu's Sleeve! The Warriors are
Absorbed!!"
April 5, 2015 TBA
Vegito and Buu continue to fight, and 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! (Albeit in a higher pitch). 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.

Infiltration Mission!"
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, and 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. 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 16 "Emergency Escape from Inside the Body! Buu's
Reverse-Transformation is the Worst!!"
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 regain 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 17 "Earth Disappears!! The Original Buu's Single
Cruel Blast!!"
April 26, 2015 TBA
Supreme Kai explains to Old Kai that he was 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 that. 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 world of the Kais.

of the Kais!!"

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 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. Unfortunately, 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. He 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.

Vegeta then steps in, but 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 better.

Goku continues to fight Buu, and he seems to have the upper hand. He deals out 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 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, 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 hasn't generated the power he needs.

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.

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.

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.

Suddenly, Fat Buu gets up and holds Kid Buu down long enough for Mr. Satan to pull Vegeta to safety. Kid Buu kick Fat Buu aside, and Goku throws the Spirit Bomb. It hits Kid Buu, but he starts pushing it back. Goku uses all of the little 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 Majin Buu. As he does so, he silently wishes that Buu had been a better person, and hopes to fight him 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.

It is ten years later, 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 upcoming 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 Mr. 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 Mr. 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 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.

When Goku does power up slightly (in his normal state) 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.
