Gotenks is Awesome! (ノリすぎ!?ブウブウ バレーボール, Norisugi!? Bū Bū Bareboru) is the eighth episode of the Fusion Saga and the two hundred sixty-first overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on March 22, 1995. Its original American air date was October 24, 2002.
Gotenks resumes his fight against Super Buu, but as a Super Saiyan 3. Again, Gotenks displays a wide variety of bizarre and childish techniques, such as the Splitting Headache, a powerful blast that can slice through anything. Super Buu then notices that Piccolo is concerned with the lookout, so he forms into a sphere shape, and destroys every last piece of it. Gotenks then powers up for his newest technique, the Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball. After pulling it off, it appears that the destructive Super Buu has met his demise, but the victory is short lived, as Super Buu reveals he is far from finished.
Meanwhile, a tired Mr. Satan sees a city and runs to it in delight. As he turns up at the city, it has been completely destroyed. Mr. Satan then has a flashback when he was playing with Majin Buu and Bee.
