Vegeta and Goku fight in a battle to determine who is the stronger. Vegeta, who is now pumped up as Majin, now matches Goku in power.
The show starts off with Goku, who before this episode just transformed into a Super Saiyan, and Pikkon standing in the Other world tournament ring. Goku gets things started with his most famous attack the Kamehameha Wave which Pikkon dodges and starts a display of his speed. Then Pikkon traps Goku in his Hyper Tornado attack which takes Goku awhile to counter but he ends up escaping with a power display of energy. Then he revamps an old technique when he does the Super Kaioken which he then follows with another Kamehameha Wave! But don't underestimate Pikkon! He is a very powerful fighter. Pikkon goes head on with another one of Goku's energy beams, which Pikkon gets the better end of, kicking [*knocking?] Goku to the ground and almost out of the ring. Pikkon then says to Goku that he has "never fought someone as strong as Goku". Goku then replies, "That's because you are strong". He finds that "...tougher opponents always brings out the best in me." Pikkon then does his Thunder Flash attack 3x and by the third time Goku figures out the weakness in his attack. Goku then makes his move with the Instant Transmission and Kamehameha which knocks Pikkon out of the ring. Goku then wins the Otherworld Tournament... or does he? The Grand Kaio then tells Goku and Pikkon that they were both diqualified for touching the ceiling which means they were both out of the ring. The Grand Kai then says he will give both fighters a fighting lesson in about... 200 years! Then it comes that 4 years [*7 yrs? - according to DBFan] have past on the Earth and Gohan is going to high school.moreless
With Piccolo gone, Android 17 has no choice but to fight Cell on his own or so it seems, that is until Android 16 launches a silent complaint by pummeling Cell with a fury of fisticuffs. As the battle rages on, it is easily noticeable that Android 16 is just as strong as Cell. Knowing the fight is at a stalemate Cell uses a desperate attempt to absorb Android 16 into his being, but due to the way Android 16 was built Cell is unable to complete the Androids demise. Android 16 proceeds to rip off Cell tail, ensuring that the greedy monster could never absorb anyone ever again, but Cell has Piccolo's regenerative ability, and instantly regrows his deadly tail. Can the silent giant Android 16 defeat Cell, and if not who can, perhaps this fight will buy Vegeta and Trunks the precious time they need to complete their training in the hyperbolic time chamber.moreless

Vegeta is now Majin, and Babidi transports them to the tournament. Hercule takes it as a challenge, but backs off. Vegeta destroys half of the stadium, then challenges Goku. Goku accepts.
The status quo has again been shattered. Krillin, Trunks and Bulma study the latest find and don't like what they learn. Despite one being dilapidated and older, a quick comparison proves that both time capsules are indeed Trunks'. No one has any idea how this could be, but there is one clue. It looks like the second time capsule's pilot left behind some kind of shell. The three wonder where said pilot could be now, but they doubt anything good will come of this.moreless
Just as Vegeta's head is about to pop off, Kid Buu gets kicked aside. Hercule has joined in and is trying to defeat the "wimpy" Kid Buu.

Vegeta then informs Goku, of his master plan, the spirit bomb. Goku seems uncertain, but then again it may just be the universe's last hope.moreless
Cell uses every one of his stolen moves against Gohan, but none of them work, Gohan catches his Destructo Discs and deflects his special beam cannon as if it was a beach ball. Cell then uses his ultimate move, the Kamehameha wave, but Gohan sends a second wave straight back at him, causing a great deal of his body to disintegrate, but Cell quickly regenerates. Unable to beat Gohan at his present state, Cell bulks up his muscles, increasing his strength, but he has forgotten that this is the same mistake Trunks made, and though he may have the power to beat Gohan, he can't catch him. Gohan punches Cell, and he is violently sick, he coughs up the source of his power, Android 18.moreless
Buu simply cant beat Super Saiyan Vegito, so he digs deep into his well of power and tries to blow a hole through the universe. This would cause all life to end, as the universe would collapse.

He then taunts Buu, telling him to use his ability on him.moreless

Cell has absorbed 17 but he still needs 18. Tien isn't about to let him get her, using up all his energy in a vicious attack while the androids escape to safety.

Yajirobe is saved, but it is clear that the Androids did it and that the attack has begun. With the Androids somewhere in the city, the Z Fighters begin a search. Yamcha proves unlucky this time, as he finds them first.moreless
After Kid Buu is killed, Goku, Vegeta, Hercule, Dende, and Good Buu all return to Earth. Six months later Goku and the others wish for the Earthling's memory of Majin Buu to be erased and he's free to go get into all sorts of shenanigans out in the city.

Goku defeats Marakioh, and it wasn't very easy to do. However, Pikkon is an even more powerful opponent. Both have known of the other's power since their first meeting – meaning neither expects a cakewalk in this final round. This situation naturally further inflames the prickly relationship between King Kai and West Kai, as well. They even make a bet – the stakes being King Kai's servitude and West Kai's planet. In the fight, Goku and Pikkon wow the audience. They progressively use more powerful techniques – culminating in the release of their true powers.moreless

After losing Android 18, Cell's body violently changes, into his previous, and less powerful form. Enraged at Gohan, Cell attacks him with all his might, but to his dismay, he can't land a finger on him. Gohan becomes incredibly overconfident, thinking there is no way the weakened tyrant can win, but, to Gohan's surprise Cell uses his last resort, self destruction. It seems there is no way out for the Z-fighters, but at the last moment Goku nobly sacrifices himself to save his friends, and the Earth, from certain destruction. Transporting himself and Cell to King Kai's planet using his instant transmission technique, Goku foils Cells plan to blow up the Earth. It appears that once again the universe is safe, but no, Cell has survived, and the first man on his hit list, Trunks.moreless

Trunks returns to the destroyed future to confront the two menacing androids. Once there he learns they are still destroying the unprotected towns and cities. Knowing he can defeat the ruthless pair after traveling through time and raising his power level significantly, Trunks sets off and arrives without a moment to spare. He quickly distracts Android 17, disabling him from destroying an old man who's son was another victim of the merciless machines. The androids appear confident, but Trunks quickly puts them in their place, and gains vengeance for his master Gohan by giving Android 18 a taste of her own medicine. Android 17 begins to realize his fate will soon reach the same outcome, and he too is destroyed. Trunks knows that despite the androids death, the threat is not over, there is another, Cell. Sure enough, Cell reveals himself and plans to take control of Trunks' time machine, but the young Super Saiyan is not about to stand by and let it happen.

A cruel twist of fate leaves Goku missing and Gohan forced back into action. This is very bad, as the odds favored Frieza the last time they fought, and he wasn't using as much power then. Meanwhile, Kami has summoned Shenron to undo much of what Frieza has done. Everyone possible is alive again, but those on Namek know their planet is doomed. Even worse, without Goku around and Porunga back, Frieza threatens to make King Kai's risky plan backfire in the worst possible way. All that stands in his way is Gohan, but where is Goku?moreless
Gotenks and Buu begin their rematch, and Gotenks demonstrates some new, bizarre techniques, none of them work, and Gotenks is forced to fight more seriously.

Gohan's attempts to stop Buu from hatching are in vain. The egg hatches, much to Babidi's delight. However, the egg contained nothing! Only a pink blob of smoke! Babidi started crying at the mistake. Supreme Kai is once again confident, but the pink smoke in the air forms into a body. The smoke clears and Buu appears! He lands, and starts waddling around like an idiot. Supreme Kai tells Gohan that Buu is supposed to be this way. Buu stops, then just stands still and taps his foot impatiently, obviously waiting for his master, Bibidi. (Buu was locked up before Bibidi was destroyed, so Buu does not know of his master's death.)moreless
The tournament is still in disarray following Gohan and Kibito's disastrous match. Boredom is spreading throughout the stadium. Hercule makes a suggestion – one final match between those that stayed behind. Things certainly liven up once the fighting gets going. Jewel and Killah end up rather easily dispatched. Only three hold any bragging rights – Android 18 and Mighty Mask (aka the disguised Trunks and Goten). Hercule practically becomes a spectator – fearing that his defeat is inevitable.moreless

But still Pui Pui's efforts are proved useless as Vegeta makes quick work of him. Now the Z-fighters move on to level 2 to face the energy eating demon, Yakon.moreless
The new Majin Buu charges towards the lookout, demanding Piccolo to produce Gotenks. Piccolo refuses, claiming that the promise was for two days, not one. He suggests Majin Buu could amuse himself by hunting down the remaining survivors while waiting for this fight. Majin Buu quickly rules out this possibility by unleashing millions of Ki blasts, that destroy almost everyone on Earth. Piccolo tells Majin Buu that Gotenks can be ready within the hour, after Buu agrees, Goten and Trunks are rushed into the hyperbolic time chamber for final desperate training.moreless

Majin Buu has defeated Vegito and absorbed his power. He is now more powerful than ever and relishes it. However, he has two tiny-but-threatening problems. The newly separated Goku and Vegeta don't intend to be idle. They figure that freeing their fellow absorbed Z Fighters will weaken Majin Buu enough to defeat him. One problem, though, is actually finding them. Another is what ends up finding Goku and Vegeta. The two Saiyans are in for a tiny-but-vicious fight.moreless
A new tournament looms and in celebration of the death of North Kai (King Kai), no less. As a grand prize, the Grand Kai will – reluctantly, as it turns out – train whoever wins.

The Z Fighters and company have many problems, but have just gotten another one. The second time capsule's pilot has found the populated Gingertown. He wreaks destruction on the property, but he has an even worse fate for the people. Kami senses this and is horrified – both by the destruction and the creature's great power. Old fears fade, as – much to Mr. Popo's sadness – Piccolo and Kami reunite. The emerging being looks like Piccolo and is called the same, but is noticeably different. He has no time to adjust, though. Piccolo races into action to try to save Gingertown.moreless
The Z Fighters – barring the retired Yamcha, and the absent Tien and Chiaotzu – have trained hard, but the time for training is over. It is time to head out to the tournament.

Meanwhile, Gohan and Videl are heading their way.moreless
The Z Fighters are in overdrive and because of Cell. Krillin faces Cell alone – barely managing to save some innocent people and himself. Trunks has other problems, as he fears his attempt to save the world only made things worse. Meanwhile, on Master Roshi's island, Chi-Chi is relieved that the heart disease antidote has worked and that Goku is awake. As it happens, he is very much aware of what has been happening since the Android 19 debacle. He also knows that he isn't strong enough to win. The unthinkable – going beyond Super Saiyan – is the hope and the plan.moreless
The Z Fighters' sole good news right now is that they are still alive. Vegeta storms off to train harder and vent about his humiliating defeat. Piccolo also leaves, but is not forthcoming about why. Krillin, however, figures it out – he is going to ask Kami to reunite into one, powerful being. Kami is not surprised by this development, but he needs time to think about it.
