Mr. Satan and Bee in the Barren Wasteland

Super Buu reveals that his fight with Gotenks was a warm up match, as he could sense Gohan's powers growing in a far off place, he then self destructs, but he is not dead. During the time Super Buu is gone, Gohan and the others search for the remaining survivors on Earth.


Dende is found

Dende, Mr. Satan and Bee are all discovered in the Barren Wasteland, and Dende tells Piccolo of how Mr. Popo threw him off the lookout so that the Dragon Balls could still be used to revive everyone, because without Dende, the balls would turn to stone, but the reunion doesn't last long as Super Buu returns, only one hour later. He then delivers a puzzling request, he wants a rematch with Gotenks, but it seems he has a plan, as the skin on his back begins to move.


  • This episode picked up where "A Whole New Gohan" had left off.
  • At the beginning, when Super Buu is staring at Gohan, appearing to be scared, he has white eyes. This also appears when he is preparing a Gack! directly in front of Gohan, although he still has black eyes it is just the flash of light from the energy blast
  • In an ironic way, when Mr. Satan calls out the sky for the angels to take him away, Piccolo swoops down and takes him away. Before learning Piccolo was an alien, Piccolo and his father were considered demons, the opposite of angels.
