"I'm Uub. Now 10 years old, Formerly Majin Buu"
Buu's Reincarnation is the fifteenth episode of the Kid Buu Saga and the two hundred ninetieth overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut version of the Dragon Ball Z series. The original Japanese title is "Oira wa Ubu! Ima Jussai de Moto Majin!?" (オイラはウーブ!今10歳で元魔人!?). The episode first aired on January 24, 1996. It's original American air date was April 4, 2003.
This the draw for the tournament is being held. All 12 fighters have to draw a number. Pan gets laughed at by her opponent, a big strong looking guy who calls himself Wild Tiger. Vegeta's opponent is trying to insult Vegeta, but Vegeta knocks him out and goes to the next round before the tournament has started.
Then Goku tells Fat Majin Buu to use his magic, because Goku wants to fight someone in the first round, whose identity is kept secret by Goku. Then Goku says this guy is Uub, the skinny little fellow who is really afraid of all the strong men around him in the ring. Uub is very unsure of himself and the reason he signed up for the tournament is that he has to win prize money so he can buy food for the people in his village. Goku tells Vegeta that he told Majin Buu that he wanted to fight him another time, when they both could be at full strength, just before he killed Kid Buu. Goku thinks that King Yemma must have heard this and that he granted Goku's wish. Also, Goku has done some hard thinking, and our very intelligent hero has come to the following: Uub is Buu spelled backwards. Good thinking, Goku! It seems that the little guy called Uub is Kid Buu, but in a good body. So luckily, Uub is not a threat to the world, but just an innocent little boy from a far island, who has been given the enormous powers Kid Buu had.
Then, the first round finally begins. Pan easily knocks Wild Tiger down and out of the ring: she joins Vegeta in the second round. Next up: Goku and Uub. Piccolo and Dende tell each other that this will be the true championship fight. Uub is very afraid and Goku's thinking that is going to be harder than he thought. To make Uub angry and to let him use his powers, Goku tries to tease Uub by insulting his mother and father. It seems to work! Goku kicks Uub, still frightened, almost out of the ring, but then Uub is gets very mad and flies towards Goku. That's when the episode ends.
