Ultimate Gohan says goodbye to Kibito

Gotenks fights Super Buu, and gets too cocky for his own good. He then starts pummeling Super Buu, bringing his power down. Just as he is about to finish Super Buu off with a Kamehameha, his Super Saiyan 3 power wears off, rendering his attacks useless against Super Buu. Gotenks refuses to accept defeat, but his fusion time expires just when Super Buu was firing a Vanishing Beam at them, and Goten and Trunks are forced to retreat.

At the Sacred World of the Kais, Old Kai has finished unlocking Gohan's hidden potential, and Kibito brings Gohan to Earth to help the others.


  • Gotenks (Super Saiyan 3, Base) vs. Super Buu


  • When Gotenks comments on Super Buu being a "scaredy cat" and that he's "taking on the best fighter in the world" his nose grows long, like Pinocchio. This is to symbolize how Gotenks' confidence can lead to misfortunes. This also happens in Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butoden.
