Arc Synopsis

Together with Kaiōshin, Goku and the others pursue the pair, and are informed of the ambitions of the wizard Bobbidi. Needing energy in order to revive Majin Boo, the wizard Bobbidi entices Goku and co. into his spaceship. Goku and co. overwhelmed the warriors dispatched by Bobbidi, but somehow Vegeta was manipulated by Bobbidi and clashed with Goku! With that energy, Majin Boo’s revival begins!

Majin Boo is finally revived! With strength that doesn’t match his outward appearance, Dabra, Kaiōshin, and Gohan are no match for him. Vegeta challenges him to a fight on his own, but even the attack for which he sacrificed his life was of no effect. With few people left alive in the lower world, Goku proposes that he teach the Fusion technique to Goten and Trunks. Meanwhile in the Kaiōshin realm, having had his life saved by Kaiōshin, Gohan had drawn out the legendary Z Sword, said to grant one incredible power!

In order to stall Majin Boo, who was going to destroy West City, Goku transforms into Super Saiyan 3. After Goku departs, Majin Boo kills Bobbidi and begins enjoying himself by destroying the Earth as he pleases. Gohan is given a power-up by the Elder Kaiōshin, who appeared from the Z Sword, while Goten and Trunks become Gotenks through Fusion. Majin Boo briefly became gentle through Satan’s persuasion, but because of wicked people he achieved a super power-up. The time for the decisive battle is near!

Majin Boo, who had exterminated nearly all of humanity, commences to battle Gotenks. However, with the power of Super Saiyan 3 cut off, Gotenks is in completely dire straits! At that point Gohan arrives, having finished his power-up in the Kaiōshin realm, and overwhelms Majin Boo. It seemed like Gohan would have an overwhelming victory, but Majin Boo absorbed Piccolo and Gotenks, powering up even further! At Gohan’s crisis, Goku showed up with the potara, but even Gohan ended up getting absorbed.

Goku merges with a resurrected Vegeta through the potara, and rescues Gohan and the others. However, due to the original Majin Boo being torn out as well, Majin Boo metamorphoses into a Majin Boo of pure evil. Having obliterated the Earth, Majin Boo appears in the Kaiōshin realm, and he and Goku begin the final decisive battle! With help from Vegeta, the original Majin Boo, and Satan, Goku annihilates Majin Boo with a Super Genki-Dama!

And then, ten years had passed and our heroes participate in the Tenka’ichi Budōkai. After battling with the young Oob, Goku takes him under his wing and the two set out on a journey to train the young warrior. Goodbye, Goku. Until we meet again!
