Vegeta charges the Final Impact

Majin Vegeta returns, and begins to beat the life out of Majin Buu. He uses the Final Impact and blows a hole right through Majin Buu, but fails to inflict any lasting damage due to the pink monster's ability to regenerate.

Buu then uses his Angry Explosion, with Babidi using a Wizard Barrier to protect himself.

After the attack, Vegeta emerges on his knees, bleeding heavily with many bruises. He still manages to dodge Buu's attacks, until Majin Buu uses his own body to trap Majin Vegeta. At this point, Trunks races to his father's rescue.


"Amazing. His energy, it's enormous. I haven't sensed anything like this since...since Gohan fought Cell. But Majin Buu was able to take Gohan down, he killed him! I only hope Vegeta can't afford the same fate. He's the last chance we've got. And if he fails...No! Vegeta, you can't fail! Unless Goku reappears, all of our lives, this whole world depends on you!"
