Chapter Synopsis

Satan laughs at Boo, while Goku wonders why Boo is acting this way just because of Satan’s arrival. Boo suddenly looks nauseous, and Vegeta asks Kakarrot if he’s still not done. Goku says it’s weird, but the ki he’d gathered is starting to decrease. Boo then coughs up… Boo. The original fat one. On the other planet, Dende figures that the good one being inside must’ve prevented Boo from attacking Satan. But Boo has no setbacks now, and he creeps over to Satan, punching him in the face. Satan rolls around on the ground, exclaiming how painful this is for a dream. Satan then runs off a great distance and starts throwing out some threats, but Boo just laughs, and then beats his chest like an ape. Satan thinks little of it, until Boo rushes at him again.

Suddenly, a blast comes between Boo and Satan. Everyone looks over to see the good Boo standing there. “I hate you. Don’t mess with Satan.” Mister Satan is happy to see him. The two Boos fly at each other, with the evil one getting in a hard kick to the good one. The fat Boo recovers and gives the evil one a headbutt, but the evil one is hardly affected, and grabs the good one’s forelock and slams him around. The good one gets up and fires a blast at the evil one, blowing off half of his torso, but he quickly regenerates. Vegeta yells up at Kakarrot to get his act together, but Goku says his power is fading away. He then loses his Super Saiyan 3 form. The evil Boo flies through the air like a bullet and blows off the good one’s head, but he also recovers. Satan cheers him on, but the good Boo doubts he can win. Vegeta thinks this has become the worst kind of game.

Page Breakdown

The majority of the Dragon Ball series was drawn in black and white, but chapters were occasionally published with color pages. This breakdown notes how many full-color, limited-color, and black-and-white pages appeared in this chapter. As the tankōbon volumes were not released with these colors intact, any color pages shown are taken from the kanzenban release.
