The battle between Goku and Baby continues on the Tuffle Planet. The possessed humans ask Golden Great Ape Baby to protect them, and Goku reveals that his power is just "the tip of the iceberg". Golden Great Ape Baby refuses to listen and proclaims that the strongest will triumph, to which Goku replies that darkness is weaker than the light, so he will win. They begin fighting again with the Saiyans and Pan giving side line commentary. The two appear to be even matched.
On the Sacred World of the Kais, Kibito Kai returns and gets Old Kai mad at him until he says he plans on going to Earth and using the Sacred Water to free everyone, which makes Old Kai happy to have another Kai around.
Back on the battle field, Great Ape Baby declares Goku's death, but his Super Galick Gun misses because of Goku's Instant Transmission. Great Ape Baby decides to fire a bunch of energy waves at Goku, but all of the waves are pushed away from Goku by his energy causing magma to rise to the surface on parts of the Tuffle Planet.
Great Ape Baby refuses to accept defeat and tries the Revenge Death Ball Final, but again, Goku proves to be too strong. Everyone watches as Goku takes the attack head on. Baby thinks that Goku has been destroyed by it because he's changed the technique to absorb Goku.
Goku, thinking of his friends and family, refuses to quit, so he powers up and causes the Death Ball to turn into a cyclone of energy which absorbs into Goku. Goku then uses the power of the Death Ball to power up stronger, and he launches a stronger form of a Super Kamehameha at Great Ape Baby.
The Kamehameha Wave hits Great Ape Baby's head on and knocks him in to the ground that knocking him out. Goku then blasts Great Ape Baby's tail off transforming him back into regular Vegeta. Baby realizes he has been defeated, so he leaves Vegeta's body as Vegeta is free from Baby's mind control and decides to flee the planet so he can remain alive.
The fighters return to Earth with Goku's Instant Transmission before Goku returns to his child form, and with Kibito Kai they use the Sacred Water to free Earth's populace from Baby's mind control, but they also find out some bad news. Immediately after the trio brought the Dragon Balls back, Baby utilized them when the year was not up, which Pan then calculates with the information given to her, that means that the Earth is due to explode in two weeks time.
- Baby is launched into the sun by Goku.
- Earth is threatened by the side effects of the Black Star Dragon Balls.
