Vegeta Attacks (なめるな!!ベジータ怒りの初戦突破 Nameru na!! Bejīta Ikari no Hassen Toppa) is the third episode of the Babidi Saga and the two hundred twenty-second overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on March 23, 1994. Its original American air date was October 17, 2001.
Vegeta begins to fight Pui Pui. In Babidi's spaceship, Vegeta says Pui Pui is no match for him. Pui Pui thinks he is bluffing. He throws a kick and Vegeta blocks it. Pui Pui begins to punch him, but Vegeta dodges. Babidi then changes the room into planet Zoon, where Pui Pui was born. It has 10x the gravity of Earth. Not knowing that Vegeta is used to 450x gravity, Pui Pui claims that this will give him an advantage. Vegeta says that it would perhaps give him an advantage if it were 500x gravity. When Pui Pui rushes toward him, Vegeta kicks him away. He rushes again at Vegeta, but Vegeta moves away. Stunned, Pui Pui looks behind him. Vegeta asks if Pui Pui still thinks he is bluffing, and obliterates him with his Double Galick Cannon. The door to the next stage opens.
At the World Martial Arts Tournament, Goten complains to Trunks that he is tired. They go to the fighters relaxation room. The World Tournament Announcer follows them, and is blocked by a cleaning lady. He goes in the room, only to find Goten and Trunks saying that they did well in the Junior Division, plus Mighty Mask's clothes. He asks where he is, and Trunks says he is in a closet. The announcer checks, and Trunks quickly moves to the shower and turns the shower on, and goes back. The announcer yells at Mighty Mask, and tells him they don't know when the match will start. The announcer then leaves the room as he tells Goten and Trunks to not disturb Mighty Mask, still unaware that Goten and Trunks are disguised as Mighty Mask.
