It starts off with Super Saiyan 3 Goku tired out while fighting Kid Buu. Goku tries to power up, but doesn't have enough energy. Vegeta rushes over to see if Goku still wants to continue the match or if he should step in. Goku lets Vegeta fight Kid Buu. Vegeta is facing hundreds of Kid Buus and then blows them up. Kid Buu reforms and Vegeta tries to fire blasts at him but there is no affect on Kid Buu. They start fighting, but Vegeta can't land a punch or kick on Kid Buu. Vegeta is no match for Kid Buu and wonders how Goku fought Kid Buu. As Kid Buu is about to finish off Vegeta, Goku saves Vegeta and says he's not finished with Kid Buu. Goku continues to fight Kid Buu. In Hell, Ogres and villains Goku fought were watching. Frieza is so mad because he couldn't beat Goku and sticks his tongue out at Goku. Babidi is bragging that he taught Kid Buu everything about fighting but then goes behind a rock and says he hopes Goku wins. Vegeta is watching and flashes back to the when he first met Goku. He thinks about how he still couldn't beat Goku no matter how strong he got. He thinks about Namek, how Goku beat Recoome and Frieza, and when Goku had become a Super Saiyan. Vegeta was torn apart when he saw Goku fight. Vegeta remembers how he too became Super Saiyan but still wasn't as strong as Goku. Then he realized Goku's family & friends were the reason why Goku was stronger than him. Then Vegeta realizes even though he has a family of his own, his anger made him weaker. He finally admits Goku is more powerful because he fights for his family and friends, and the people he loves and cares about. Then you see Kid Buu biting Goku and then Goku biting Kid Buu. The fight between Super Saiyan 3 Goku (he transformed back to SSJ3) and Kid Buu continues. That's the end of the episode.
