Unlucky Break (まさにグレート!!新生悟飯地球へ, Masa ni Gureto!! Shinsei Gohan Chikyu e) is the ninth episode of the Fusion Saga and the two hundred sixty-second overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on April 26, 1995. Its original American air date was October 28, 2002.
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. Gohan gives Goku one last hug as Goku tells him that this will be the final time Gohan will see his father before departing. After arriving on Earth, Gohan suggests to Kibito to give him a new outfit and Kibito uses his magic to change his clothes into an outfit identical to what his father wears. The episode ends with Gohan heading off to the battlefield.
- Gotenks (Super Saiyan 3, Base) vs. Super Buu
Bruce Faulconer tracks
- "Gohan Powers Up" - When Gohan powers up to maximum.
- This episode picks up where "Gotenks is Awesome!" had left off.
- 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.
