After he heals Hercule, he instructs him to get away. Buu begins giving off more steam than ever, and the steam is congealing in the sky.

Buu completes his walk, and raises up his arm. Millions of energy blasts start flying out of his hand down to earth. After the Human Extiction Attack is finished, only Hercule, the dog, Tien, and Chiaotzu remain, as well as the fighters on the lookout.

Super Buu and Gotenks begin to fight, and Gotenks decides to use some of his special moves. The problem is that these moves are totally ineffective, not to mention they have ridiculous names, like the Screaming Angry Wombat. After it is clear that these moves have no effect, Gotenks talks strategy with Piccolo. He then creates a ring of energy and traps Buu inside. After a brief struggle, Buu is able to break the ring. The two then do a bit of real fighting. Gotenks decides to use another one of his special moves, called the Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack.

Gotenks and Piccolo destroy all of the pieces, but the smoke coming from the pieces gathers above their heads and reforms Super Buu.

Heartbroken at the idea that he will never eat candy again, Super Buu lets out a powerful scream that rips a hole in the dimension. He jumps through it, and the hole closes before Piccolo and Gotenks can get through. Back on the outside, Buu is hungry, and so he turns everyone at the lookout into chocolate. Piccolo and Gotenks have been attempting to scream loud enough to create an interdimensional hole like Buu did, but they've seen no success. Gotenks decides to play his trump card, transforming into a Super Saiyan 3. This gives him the power Boost needed to rip a hole for he and Piccolo to jump through.

Buu then forms himself into a ball, and begins repeatedly shooting himself at the lookout until all that's left is rubble floating in the air. While still in a ball, Gotenks is able to trap him in a little sphere. He and Piccolo then play some volleyball with Buu, and Gotenks spikes him down to earth.

Just as he's about to hit Buu with his final move, Gotenks returns to normal from his Super Saiyan 3 form. The power was too much for him to sustain. Buu begins beating up Gotenks, who is now much weaker. Gohan has finally finished his training, and is ready to return to earth.

On the way, they pick up Hercule and the dog, Bee.

Meanwhile, in Other World, King Yemma decides to send Vegeta back to earth to fight Buu. On the world of the Kais, the Elder Kai decides to give his life to Goku so he can fight Buu.

Just before it hits, it is blasted out of the way by Tien's tribeam, who has arrived just in time. Buu tries again, but Goku suddenly appears and sends a disk of energy at the monster. It cuts off his legs and part of his head. His legs give Tien a crushing kick, and then return to Buu. Goku throws Gohan the other earring, but his aim is off. Goku goes Super Saiyan 3 to hold off Super Buu while Gohan serches for the earring. Suddenly, Gotenks' fusion wears off, and Buu loses most of his power.

After he finds him, Goku tries to convince Vegeta to fuse with him, but Vegeta is angry because he knows Goku was holding back his Super Saiyan 3 transformation when they fought. They each try to take on Buu, but are clearly outclassed. Goku tells Vegeta that Buu absorbed Trunks and killed Bulma and asks him to put their differences aside to save their race. Vegeta finally agrees, and only when he puts the earring on does Goku mention that the fusion is permanent. The two last surviving Saiyans fused successfully and a new warrior is born.

Vegeta crushes his fusion earring, citing that once they free their absorbed friends, Buu will lose most of his power. As they journey through his innards, they find some tiny green pieces of slime.

The Supreme Kai brings Dende back to the world of the Kais. Dende heals Vegeta and Goku. Hercule finds the body of old Buu, and asks Dende to heal him. Vegeta won't let him, and plans to destroy him. He says it is too dangerous for any form of Majin Buu to exist, but Hercule continues to plead with him. Goku takes Hercule's side, explaining to Vegeta that it was old Buu who saved Vegeta's life right before Goku threw the Spirit Bomb. Vegeta reluctantly agrees, and Majin Buu is healed. Supreme Kai takes them all back to Dende's lookout, where they reunite with friends and family. Goku tells his family that Elder Kai gave him his life, so he can stay on earth for good. Four months later, they use their remaining wish with Shenron, asking him to erase the memory of Majin Buu from the mind of everyone on earth, so that the good Buu can assimilate into society. Life finally returns to normal on earth.

Everyone has arrived to watch. Gohan, who is now married to Videl, has decided not to enter, but his daughter, Pan, will fight.

King Yemma apparently heard Goku's wish right before Buu was destroyed, and he reincarnated Buu as a good person, named Uub. Uub is apprehensive, so to bait him into fighting, Goku resorts to taunting the young boy. After a particularly nasty insult and a kick to the face, Uub has snapped, and is now ready to fight.

Despite his friends and family pleading with him to stay, he flies away with Uub. Goku decides to train Uub to defend the earth when he's gone. He hopes one day, when Uub's training is complete, to have a real all-out match with him to test their power. At the tournament, it seems that Pan wins.
