"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!"
The Warrior's Decision (戦士の決意!!魔人はオレが始末する Senshi no Ketsui!! Majin wa Ore ga Shimatsu Suru) is the fifth episode of the Majin Buu Saga and the two hundred thirty-sixth overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on August 17, 1994. Its original American air date was November 12, 2001.
Majin Vegeta continues his physical assault on Buu, seemingly pummeling him in a one sided fight, worrying the onlooking Babidi while the others comment on how powerful Vegeta as grown. Piccolo comments that Vegeta is now even more powerful than Gohan was back when he fought Cell at the Cell Games.
However thanks to Buu's Regeneration all of his damage is undone just as quickly. Vegeta powers up and uses his Final Impact and blows a hole right through him, but once again fails to inflict any lasting damage, regenerating immediately. Buu now growing angry, uses the Angry Explosion, with the sheer power shaking the Z-Fighters to their core and leaving a giant crater in the ground and injuring Vegeta who was caught up within the explosion.
Buu pulls off a piece off his body mass and uses it to ensnare Vegeta and render him unable to overcome. Unable to defend himself, Buu plays around with his victim beating him mercilessly. Furious, Trunks turns into a Super Saiyan and rushes to the aid of his father while Goten follows after him in order to help.
