"What do you call a Vegeta and a Goku? Vegito sounds alright."
Meet Vegito (壮絶パワー!!究極を超えるベジット Sozetsu Pawa!! Kyukyoku o Koeru Bejitto) is the sixteenth episode of the Fusion Saga and the two hundred sixty-ninth overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on July 5, 1995. Its original American air date was November 8, 2002.
After a successful fusion between Goku and Vegeta, a new warrior is born. Not even named yet, he injures Super Buu easily. Soon adopting the name Vegito, he proves himself to be more than a match for Super Buu as he easily withstands an assault that would have almost killed the others separately. As Vegito begins the battle against Super Buu, Old Kai and Kibito Kai realize that even without transforming into a Super Saiyan, Vegito is much stronger than Super Buu. Super Buu realizes that he is outclassed and creates a giant energy ball as Dende and Mr. Satan arrive at the scene.
Meanwhile, in Heaven, Videl, Chi-Chi, Bulma and Dabura (Dabura has had a change of heart ever since his death, though it was only 2 days ago) are searching far and wide for Gohan. Nowhere to be found, Chi-Chi is upset, but Videl is certain that he is not there and still somewhere on Earth.
Back on Earth Super Buu reveals his "Destroy Everything!" technique. Dende sets Mr. Satan down, and Mr. Satan lands on a rock and gets hurt. As Buu heaves the massive ball, Vegito stands confident knowing he can stop it, and that he does and he tosses it into space. Super Buu says that Vegito is strong but still does not compare to him. Vegito simply smirks, and transforms into a Super Saiyan, proclaiming his new name: Super Vegito.
