Minute of Desperation
Minute of Desperation (耐え抜けベジータ!!命がけの1分間, Taenuke Bejita!! Inochigake no Ippunkan) is the sixth episode of the Kid Buu Saga and the two hundred eighty-first overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on November 1, 1995. Its original American air date was March 21, 2003.
The episode starts off with Kid Buu firing a Kamehameha wave which Goku manages to block. Behind the smoke, Goku fires the True Kamehameha which Kid Buu deflects, at the expense of his left arm and right hand. Kid Buu and Goku continue fighting, Goku tries everything he can, but Kid Buu keeps on regenerating. Goku then realizes he is getting no where fast. Vegeta then comes over, and Goku says that they can switch in a little while as he still has some fight left in him.
Vegeta replies that he knows Goku has no intention of letting him switch in as he knows full well that he does not stand a chance. Goku says that he needs one minute to recover his strength and then he will be able to defeat Buu, to which Vegeta replies that he will fight Kid Buu to buy him the one minute. Goku tells him that since he is already dead, he will cease to exist if he gets killed. Vegeta says that if he cannot last a lousy minute against Buu then maybe he deserves to die. He then powers up to his Super Saiyan 2 state and starts to attack on Buu while Goku begins powering up.
Vegeta tries his best and fires a series of energy blasts, but Kid Buu is unfazed. Buu pummels Vegeta time and time again into the ground but Vegeta is unwilling to give up and keeps returning to the fight. Even Buu is astonished when Vegeta gets up from a blast to the face, but Vegeta loses almost all of his power trying to get up from all of the attacks from Buu. Eventually, he loses his power, and Kid Buu then begins to choke him.
