Family Bonds (みんなの力で...超サイヤ人4復活, Minna no pawa de... Sūpā saiya-jin 4 fukkatsu) is the twenty-third episode of the Baby Saga and the thirty-eighth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. The episode first aired on February 19, 1997. Its original American air date was June 26, 2004.
With Baby fully powered up again, Goku tries to trick him into making his own mistakes, but Pan realizes that Goku is maxed out, so she flies and uses energy attacks against Great Ape Baby. The energy attacks have no effect on Great Ape Baby, so he decides to target Pan. Goku decides to use his little bit of remaining energy on a Kamehameha Wave, but Trunks arrives and manages to distract Great Ape Baby.
Great Ape Baby decides to change targets and starts beating up Trunks, but Gohan and Goten both arrive and save Trunks. Goten and Trunks decide to try and do the Fusion Dance, but Goku reveals it will not be enough. He tells them they need to give him their energy so he can defeat Great Ape Baby.
Great Ape Baby realizes this fact also, so he attacks them and will not let power Goku up, forcing Goku to use his little bit of remaining energy on a Solar Flare to temporarily blind Great Ape Baby. This gives a chance for Gohan, Goten, and Trunks to begin powering up Goku, but Great Ape Baby proves again to be resilient and rebounds quickly.
Realizing that Goku still needs time to power up, Majuub turns back into his Human form inside of Great Ape Baby and begins attacking him from the inside just like Great Ape Baby's eggs did to everyone else. He holds Great Ape Baby off while the Saiyans power Goku up. Once Majuub runs out of power, he is spit out of Great Ape Baby. Great Ape Baby then uses a Super Galick Gun on the Saiyans.Everyone appears to be hit by the Galick Gun and presumed out of the fight, so Mr. Satan confronts Great Ape Baby because he is the only fighter left, but Goku speaks and says he will handle Great Ape Baby. He also tells Mr. Satan that he is now a true hero. The others wake up and are shocked at the power of the powered-up Super Saiyan 4. Great Ape Baby realizes he must defeat Goku to win the day. The two warriors begin powering up and fighting.
- This episode bears similarities to when Goku fought Vegeta the first time when Vegeta became a Great Ape and when Goku used the Solar Flare to gain more energy for the Spirit Bomb to defeat him.
- When Goku attempts to use a Kamehameha to save Pan, he holds his hands to his left side, whereas he usually holds them to his right side.
