[edit] Summary

The episode starts off with Kid Buu firing a strong ball of energy, but this doesn't hurt Goku. Behind the smoke Goku fires a Kamehameha. Kid Buu tries to deflect it but his arms disappear. Kid Buu and Goku put on an amazing fight. Goku tries everything he can, but Kid Buu keeps regenerating his power. Goku fires a huge blast on Kid Buu's head, but Kid Buu regenerates again. Goku then realizes he is getting nowhere and becomes exahusted. Vegeta then comes over, and Goku says that they can switch in a little while as he still has some energy left in him. Vegeta replies that he knows Goku has no intention of letting him switch in as he knows fully well that Vegeta won't stand a chance. Goku said that he needed one minute to recover his strength, so Vegeta replied he would fight Kid Buu for one minute. Goku tells him that since he is already dead, he might disappear forever if he gets killed. Vegeta says that if he can't last at least a minute against Buu then maybe he deserves to die. He powers up to his Super Saiyan 2 state and starts the attack on Buu. Vegeta tries his best and fires a series of energy blasts, but Kid Buu comes from behind and hits Vegeta. Buu pummels Vegeta time and time again into the ground but Vegeta is unwilling to give up and keeps returning to the fight. Kid Buu then begins to choke him.
