    Vegeta is enfulged with his new power. He mocks Goku, and claims he wants to fight him once and for all. When Goku refuses, Vegeta blasts at the crowd with a Ki Blast. Thousands of people are killed, leaving more energy for Majin Buu. Goku then realized that Vegeta will have to be stopped, and he tells Babidi to move the Z- Team somewhere uninhibited, so no one will be hurt. But, the Supreme Kai disagrees, and stands in front of Goku, trying to stop the fight. Goku only realizes that more people will be hurt by Majin Vegeta until he gets what he wants, so he begins to fire a Ki Blast at the Supreme Kai. The Supreme Kai steps to the side, and lets Vegeta and Goku do as they wish. Babidi moves them to the desert, and then, the Supreme Kai gets another idea. There is to be no stopping Majin Buu's birth, unless they leave for stage 4 now, so now, while Majin Vegeta and Goku fight, the Supreme Kai and Gohan will go on to stop Majin Buu, or, awake him before he is at full power. However, Babidi and Dabura need him at full power, so they open Stage 3 up, so the team can go even further into the ship. Meanwhile Goku and Vegeta begin their fight in the mountains!

    This episode is one of the best in the entire series. Vegeta has been taken over by Babidi and become a Majinn as a result, and the first thing he does is kill a bunch of innocent people, knowing it will anger Goku enough to make him fight. Vegeta doesn't care about working for Babidi or gathering energy to revive Buu, the only thing that matters to him is defeating Goku with his own two hands. This leads to one of the best scenes in the series, as Kaioshin desperately pleads with Goku not to give in and fight Vegeta, as that's what Madoshi Babidi wants. What Goku does in return is quite shocking, which I won't spoil, and definitely runs for my favorite moment on the show. My only complaint is that the English dub ruins said scene, as it adds dialog. The original Japanese version had no dialoge during this moment, which I personally feel added much more tension. But either way, this is a fantastic episode, even though there really isn't even any fighting with it, and a must-see for any DBZ fan.moreless

    • Goku: Tell me Vegeta - with that stamp on your forehead I know Babidi's been giving you orders. Is this one of them? Are you doing all of this because of him? Or is this the same old story between us, which one?
      Gohan: Does it really matter?!

    • Goku: How sad... I never thought you were weak enough to be controlled...
      Gohan: Dad... don't.
      Goku: ANSWER ME! VEGETA! Do you let yourself be a slave?!
      (Vegeta smiles at Goku and extends his palm sideways before firing an energy blast which blows away a quater of the stadium)
      Vegeta: TELL ME! Is it slavery when you get what you want?!

    • Vegeta: This doesn't concern you Gohan, it's between me and your circus clown of a father.
      Goku: Circus clown, huh? That's a new one.

    • Vegeta: No! Get out of my head! I already told you! I will not be distracted from this anymore! I won't! It'll take more than head games to stop me. You may have invaded my mind and my body, but there's one thing a Saiyan always keeps... HIS PRIDE!
