List of Dragon Ball GT episodes

Dragon Ball GT is the third anime series in the Dragon Ball franchise and a sequel to the Dragon Ball Z anime series.[1] Produced by Toei Animation, the series premiered in Japan on Fuji TV on February 7, 1996, spanning 64 episodes until its conclusion on November 19, 1997. Unlike the other anime series in the Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball GT is not based on the manga series written by Akira Toriyama, but a project by Toei Animation; the same characters are used, and the series also continues the story where Dragon Ball Z had left off.

First Dragon Ball GT DVD volume, released South Africa by Toei Animation on February 6, 2008, depicting three forms of Son Goku.

Funimation licensed the series for an English language Region 1 DVD release and broadcast in the United States. Funimation's English dub of the series aired on Cartoon Network from November 7, 2003, to April 16, 2005. The original television broadcast skipped the first 16 episodes of the series. Instead, Funimation created a composition episode entitled "A Grand Problem," which used scenes from the skipped episodes to summarize the story. The skipped episodes were later shown on Cartoon Network as "The Lost Episodes" after the original broadcast concluded. The series was later released to DVD in the Season set form. The first set was released on December 9, 2008,[2] and the second set was released on February 10, 2009.[3] A "Complete Series" DVD box set was later released on September 21, 2010.[4] AB Groupe (in association with Blue Water Studios) developed an alternate dub for Europe and Canada and was aired on YTV and Toonami UK, which divided the episodes into two seasons instead of sagas.[5][6] Funimation's English dub began re-airing in the U.S. on Nicktoons from January 16, 2012, to January 2, 2015.[7]

Dragon Ball GT uses five pieces of theme music. Field of View performs the series opening theme, "Dan Dan Kokoro Hikareteku" (DAN DAN 心魅かれてく), which is used for all 64 episodes in Japanese. Vic Mignogna performs the English version. "Hitori Janai" (ひとりじゃない), performed by Deen in Japanese and Stephanie Young in English, is used for the ending theme for the first 26 episodes. Starting at episode 27, the series begins using Zard's "Don't You See!" for the ending theme in Japanese. Stephanie Young performed the song in English. Episode 42 marks the next ending theme change, with "Blue Velvet" by Shizuka Kudō in Japanese and Brina Palencia in English being used. "Sabitsuita Mashingan de Ima o Uchinukō" (錆びついたマシンガンで今を撃ち抜こう), performed by Wands in Japanese and Justin Houston in English, is introduced as an ending theme in episode 51. It was used as the ending theme for the remainder of the series, except for the final episode in the original broadcast, which reuses the opening theme, which was omitted in the alternate soundtrack, composed by Mark Manza.

After Goku and Uub finally ended their training and Uub leaving the lookout after bidding farewell to Goku as Goku is about to leave the lookout to return home as he tells Dende and Mr. Popo that he hasn't been home for so many years and thinks that Chi-Chi is going to be mad at him, he notices a mysterious light coming from inside the lookout. Pilaf was about to wish to take over the world until he is interrupted by Goku, who asks where the mysterious light is coming from and recognizes Pilaf as Pilaf discovers that Goku looks very familiar and Pilaf orders his assistants, Shu and Mai to fire the missiles at Goku, but Goku stops the missiles and tells the gang that they never change. Frustrated, he accidentally says that he wishes Goku were a child again so he could beat him up, unaware that the dragon is listening. The dragon grants this accidental wish, and Goku becomes a child, shocking Dende and Mr. Popo. After Pilaf leaves, King Kai tells Goku that the only way he can return to normal is by finding the Black Star Dragon Balls, which are now scattered throughout the galaxy. However, Goku decides it will be easier to just grow up again after telling King Kai that he kinda likes being the size of a kid again, and he heads into town. There he finds Pan foiling a bank robbery while Pan is on a date as she doesn't recognize him at first and Pan discovers that the little boy is her grandfather after Goku sees Master Roshi again and Master Roshi recognizes Goku and asks him of how did he become small as Goku tells Master Roshi that Emperor Pilaf summed Shenron and accidentally wished for Goku to become small again before asking if Chi-Chi is going to be mad at him for being gone so long. He heads home for the first time in years with her, and explains to everyone what happened, which shocks Gohan, Videl and a crying Chi-Chi as Gohan asks his father what is he going to do now, but Goku thinks that he is unsure with Gohan telling his father that he can only return to normal if he made a wish from the Black Star Dragon Balls.

What Goku, Trunks and Pan didn't realize is that Dende and Mr. Popo are still in Baby's control. They decide not to wish Goku back to normal, because then they would have to collect the balls all over again as Goku decides he would rather stay as a kid until he grows up instead of collecting the Dragon Balls again, much to Pan's dismay, but Goku tells Pan that he'll have a talk with Chi-Chi about it when he gets home. When Goku and Pan arrive back at home, they notice something strange about Chi-Chi and Videl after Goku believes that Chi-Chi is still mad at him for not using the Dragon Balls to return to normal size and Pan thinks that Videl is mad at her for disobeying her and going to space with Goku. Gohan and Goten burst into the room and attack. Pan falls to the ground unconscious. Goku easily fights off the two of them, but then Vegeta shows up.

Buu and Hercule, through Buu's protection, are the only two that escaped Baby's rampage. Baby (in Vegeta's body) then confronts Goku.

Goku meets a strange man named Sugoro, who challenges him to a life-sized board game. If Goku wins the game, he gets to keep his life and return to Earth, but if he loses, he must give up his life. To make matters worse, Goku is stripped of all of his powers, as they are "against the rules". They begin to play a game of chance, and Goku always seems to have bad luck, unlike Sugoro, who never has anything bad happen to him. This is because he cheats while Goku isn't looking. Back on Earth, Dende gives Baby the Black Star Dragon Balls, and he wishes for the Tuffle home planet to be restored in orbit around the Earth. He then gathers all of the Tuffles on Earth, and they begin to board a giant spaceship that will take them there.

Goku grabs Sugoro and blasts a hole into another dimension. Once they exit the game dimension, Kibito Kai appears and takes them to the world of the Kais. Elder Kai begins to train Goku, since he is not strong enough to beat Baby in his current state. Back on Earth, Buu, Pan, and Mr. Satan sneak onto the ship.

Meanwhile, Goku sees what's happening on the Tuffle planet and demands to be sent there immediately. The Elder Kai begins to understand what Goku has said and decides to send Goku there without completing the training, but then reveals that the purpose of Goku's training was to grow his tail so he could have enough energy to defeat Baby, but because there is no time to waste, he decides to pull it out manually, using Sugoro's son as a giant pair of pliers. On Baby's Tuffle Planet, the parasite tyrant in Vegeta's body quickly overpowers Uub, and begins to gather a giant energy ball, just like the one he used to attack Goku. Buu takes Pan and Mr. Satan to safety. He says goodbye to them, and then flies back and absorbs the blast. Buu explodes, and the pieces of him rain down on Uub.

As Majuub and Baby begin to fight on the Tuffle Planet, after numerous failed attempts to grow his Saiyan tail, Goku ties Elder Kai to a rock and tells him to hold on to the pliers. He flies away as hard as he can, which pulls his tail out to full length, successfully increasing his energy. Back on the Tuffle planet, Majuub creates a giant energy wave and aims it at Baby to turn. After a long struggle, Baby is able to deflect the wave back at Majuub. And as a result, Majuub is turned him into chocolate and devoured by Baby just as Goku reappears through Kibito Kai's teleportation only to see this incident, too late to save him. Now fueled by the loss of his trusted partner, Goku arrives and powers up to Super Saiyan 3 for a rematch after Baby discovers that Goku is still alive and he now has a tail. But even with his tail back, he does not seem to have gained any strength. Goku then charges at Baby, but the evil Tuffle grabs him by his tail, swirls him around in the air and throws him back to the ground, badly injuring him and causing him to regress back to his base form. As Baby flies down to finish him this time, the now-depressed Goku realizes he is again no match for his foe, and then looks up at the Earth in the sky of the Tuffle Planet. Remembering his life with his friends and family on his home planet, and unable to bear his failure to protect them from Baby, Goku pleas for the power to "end this madness". Surprisingly, Goku absorbs the familiar energy reflecting off the Earth, the Blutz Waves, causing him to finally transforming into a Great Ape, but this time with golden fur. Though stunned by Goku's amazing new transformation, Baby refuses to believe that Saiyans can change into Great Apes without the full moon, until he realizes in horror that Goku has used the Earth as the moon's resemblance.

Later, Goku is about to drink from the lake, until he again sees the Earth, and climbs up the cliffs towards it. Unbeknownst to the savage Goku, Pan and Mr. Satan were following him quietly after learning he has survived somehow and barely even recognize him in his Great Ape form.

On his tower, Baby & Bulma find a puzzling information on how did the Earth give Goku the Blutz Waves to become a Great Ape, & Bulma explain the reason Baby can't turn into one since he took control of Vegeta's body is that the Saiyan Prince no longer has a tail. Goku finds Baby, & they begin to fight. It seems like Baby still has the upper hand, but Goku reveals that he hasn't even been trying. Now on the offensive, Goku seems indestructible, & Baby is no match for him. Bulma contacts Baby, saying that she's found a way to focus Blutz Waves onto him, which would turn him into a Great Ape. It turns out that Bulma has created her Blutz Wave Generator. Using her generator, she hits him with this beam just before Goku releases a Kamehameha wave, & Baby transforms into a Golden Great Ape.

Kibito Kai finds the water and uses it on Dende and Mr. Popo. Then he arrives on the Tuffle planet and uses it to revive Trunks. Back on the Tuffle Planet, Bulma uses the Blutz Wave Generator again to restore Baby to his full strength.

Baby begins writhing in pain. Majuub, whom Baby had eaten, has regained his form and is attacking from the inside, revealing that he had purposely allowed Baby to deflect his attack and eat him.

Piccolo's plan is to replicate the method that the two Android 17's used to escape from hell. He telepathically communicates his plan with Dende. They try to send an energy blast to each other at the same time. After several tries, they finally hit at the exact same moment, and another black hole opens up. Piccolo, unfortunately, cannot follow Goku back to Earth, as he must remain perfectly still for the portal to remain open, but assures Goku that it will be all right; he is willing to spend eternity in hell to help his old friend. Accepting, Goku returns to Earth, while Piccolo decides to get in some "target practice" with some of the old villains. Meanwhile, Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, Goten, and Majuub are losing badly to Super Android 17. The Android turns on Dr. Gero, because Dr. Myuu programmed the android to only take commands from him.

Goku and Super Android 17 begin to fight. The battle is clearly in 17's favor, as Gero and Myuu programmed knowledge of all of Goku's techniques and abilities into him; however, Goku transforms into Super Saiyan 4, which neither Gero or Myuu knew about. He hits 17 with hundreds of energy blasts, but none of them seem to hurt the android. He tries a Kamehameha wave, but 17 makes no effort to get out of the way, and Goku realizes that 17 is absorbing the energy, just like Android 19 did, but without the devices on the hands. Super Android 17 has now absorbed so much energy that he is stronger than Goku. Goku tries to use Instant Transmission to sneak up on 17, but the android can sense where he is going to appear by analyzing the distortion Instant Transmission causes in the atmosphere.

While 17 is distracted by making his energy ball, Goku sneaks up from behind and grabs him. He tries to blow them both up, but when the smoke clears, both of them remain alive. 17 had put up a shield to protect himself, but it also protected Goku just enough to keep him alive. Once again, he gathers energy for his final attack, but suddenly 18 shows up. Her taunts cause 17 to turn and destroy Dr. Myuu. He turns back to kill Goku, but before he can, 18 starts firing energy blasts at him. While 17 is absorbing the blasts, Goku realizes that he is unable to move while absorbing energy and thus vulnerable, and he quickly attacks, punching a hole through him. He finishes 17 off with a Kamehameha wave. Bulma arrives, saying that the Earth is incredibly unstable because of the interdimensional portals that 17 and Piccolo opened up. They gather the Dragon Balls to fix this, only to find that they are all cracked. When they call Shenron, black smoke issues from them, and a mysterious but powerful, evil new dragon emerges.

The new dragon turns out to be pure evil. He sucks up the Dragon Balls and then splits into seven more dragons, which then fly away. Elder Kai explains that each time the Dragon Balls are used, they store negative energy, and that energy takes 100 years to dissipate. The reason the balls scatter after they're used is to give them time to release their negative energy. But because Bulma invented the dragon radar, they were able to find them very quickly and summon Shenron many times. This overuse caused the balls to overload themselves with negative energy, and that energy spawned the Shadow Dragons. All those present blame Bulma for this, but she quickly places the blame on Goku, stating that she could never have found them without his help. In any event, Goku, feeling guilty for having used the Dragon Balls so often, goes off to slay the dragons, as they will potentially destroy the universe if left unchecked. Goku follows the destructive path left by the dragons, and Pan follows him, bringing Giru along to use the dragon radar. They find the two-star dragon destroying a village.

The two-star dragon, Haze Shenron, is severely polluting the entire area, so Pan steps in to stop him. She is much more powerful than the dragon and relentlessly beats it up. But Pan's attacks seem to do less and less, until the dragon is able to overpower her. Goku tries to transform into a Super Saiyan and finds that he is unable to. The dragon explains that his pollution causes all living things to exponentially weaken, die and decay over a short period of time. This is why Pan's strength is gone, and why Goku can't power up. He also reveals that he was created when Goku wished to revive Bora, father of his old friend Upa, after he was killed by Mercenary Tao, horrifying Goku with the fact that he was indeed responsible for the creation of the Shadow Dragons. The dragon beats them up, and then throws them into the lake. Giru, who is unaffected by the poison due to being a robot, goes underwater and pulls them to an uninfected part of the lake. There is a spring here that is feeding in pure water from underground, keeping the area clean. Goku blasts the hole, flooding the lake with clean water. With their powers rejuvenated, Goku and Pan destroy the dragon quickly before his pollution has enough time to take effect and claim the two-star ball, which returns to its original form.

Goku, Pan, and Giru go to a nearby city to get something to drink but they find that all its inhabitants are nowhere to be seen. They find some weird electric slime, and they figure out that the five-star dragon, Rage Shenron, is controlling the slime. After revealing that he was created when Master Roshi and Bulma wished to revive Goku when Vegeta and Nappa originally came to Earth, he gathers the slime and becomes gigantic. Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan 4 and tries to blast the dragon, but the slime bounces his attack back at him. The dragon traps Goku and Pan in the slime, which begins to electrocute them. It begins to rain, causing the dragon to short circuit and explode. Rage Shenron tricks Pan by admitting defeat and when she tries to claim the Dragon Ball, Rage Shenron tries to trap her but she gets out of the way. Goku then destroys him by using a normal Kamehameha Wave. Goku and Pan claim the five-star ball.

Goku, Pan, and Giru find the six-star dragon, Oceanus Shenron, in a fishing village. She reveals that she was created by the very first wish that Goku and company ever made (Oolong wishing for a pair of underwear in order to thwart Emperor Pilaf); while both she and Pan are disgusted and embarrassed by this, Goku looks back on it with humor, much to the dragon's anger. This dragon can put up energy shields, so Goku can't hit her. He tries to use a Kamehameha wave, but the dragon deflects it. The dragon then creates an extremely powerful vortex, smashing Goku through a cliff. Pan creates her first Kamehameha wave and blasts it at the dragon, which gives Goku the chance to deal the finishing blow. They claim the six-star ball and continue their journey.

Goku, Pan, and Giru locate the seven-star dragon, Naturon Shenron. He is creating earthquakes by digging holes in the ground, and he isn't interested in fighting. Goku and Pan follow him while he's digging and see that he's headed for a city. The dragon creates a massive earthquake, but Pan and Goku as a Super Saiyan 4, are able to prevent the city from being damaged. The dragon gets angry with them and after revealing that he was created by the wish to revive all innocents killed by Majin Vegeta on the day of Majin Buu's resurrection, tries to fight, but ends up hitting himself with his own attack. Goku prepares to deal the final blow, but the dragon dies on its own. Goku powers down and Pan catches the seven-star ball, only to find that it still has cracks in it. The ball begins to glow, and Pan gets sucked into it. The dragon reveals that he uses a hosts body to form his own. He was using a mole's body, which is why he was so weak, but now he is using Pan's body, which means he is far more powerful. He wants to get Goku's Super Saiyan 4 body, but Goku refuses to power up. He says that he'll fight if the dragon releases Pan.

Masayuki UchiyamaToshinobu OniJuly 16, 1997 (1997-07-16)November 6, 2004
The seven-star dragon begins destroying the city. Inside of him, Pan can't take the destruction, so she telepathically pleads with Goku to fight. He realizes that it is the right thing to do, so he reluctantly transforms into a Super Saiyan 4. Intending to kill the dragon, along with Pan, he hits the dragon with a Kamehameha wave. The dust clears, and the dragon is still alive. Goku couldn't bring himself to put all of the necessary energy into the blast. The dragon turns the tide of the fight, and appears to knock Goku out. He mockingly "grants Goku's wish" by letting him see Pan one last time. He pushes Pan halfway out of him, and Goku grabs her and pulls her out. The dragon regresses to his normal form, and Goku destroys him. They claim the seven-star ball, and continue their journey.

Noboru KoizumiToshinobu OniAugust 6, 1997 (1997-08-06)November 13, 2004
The sun seems unusually hot, and they discover that it is because of the four-star dragon, Nuova Shenron, who reveals that he was created when the original King Piccolo wished to regain his youth and full power. He can raise his body temperature to even greater levels than the surface of the sun, which makes punching him out of the question. Goku is forced to run from the dragon. He realizes that he can still use energy waves, so he begins attacking the dragon. After a while, the dragon gets tired of playing around, and he changes into his final form. Goku follows suit, and transforms into a Super Saiyan 4.
55"The Heart of the Prince" / "Bulma's On the Job! The Vegeta-Remodeling Plan"

Masayuki UchiyamaAtsushi MaekawaAugust 13, 1997 (1997-08-13)November 20, 2004
Vegeta tries to leave for the fight to join Goku and the others, but Bulma convinces him to stay. She says that she's working on something that will help him. While she's preparing the device, Vegeta reminisces about Goku in the past; everything from their first fight when he was once evil (though he was still good in the present), to Goku's fight with Frieza when he first transformed into a Super Saiyan, to their fight when he was Majin Vegeta (half evil, half good), to their fight with Kid Buu. Bulma then explains how Goku became Super Saiyan 4 in the fight against Baby on the Tuffle planet: when Goku looked at the Earth from the Tuffle planet as if it were a full moon, he transformed into a Golden Great Ape because the Blutz Waves he absorbed were naturally being created by the Earth, in the same way as if they only reflect from the moon. Pan helped him become conscious of himself, and this made him transform again into the final Super Saiyan 4 stage. Since Vegeta is already conscious of himself as a regular Great Ape, theoretically he just needs to be bombarded with Blutz Waves to make the transformation to Super Saiyan Great Ape and then he can become a Super Saiyan 4. Bulma hypothesizes that Vegeta didn't transform into a Super Saiyan 4 while Baby was possessing him as a Super Saiyan Great Ape because Vegeta wasn't conscious. To create these Blutz Waves, Bulma has built a mobile version of the machine that she built for Baby on the Tuffle planet while she was possessed by one of Baby's parasitic offspring.

Takeo IdeAtsushi MaekawaAugust 20, 1997 (1997-08-20)November 27, 2004
Goku and Nuova, the four-star dragon, begin to fight in earnest. Goku catches Nuova off guard, but grants him a freebie because Nuova spared Pan's life at Goku's request when he could have easily destroyed her. Nuova says that he doesn't harm innocent and helpless people. As they continue to fight, a beam comes out of nowhere and hits Goku's arm, freezing it. It came from Eis Shenron, the three-star dragon, and Nuova's twin brother, who was (as revealed in Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files) brought forth by the wish that erased the memories of Majin Buu from everyone on Earth excluding the Z Fighters and their friends. Eis has taken the Dragon Balls from Pan, and he gives them to Nuova. He then freezes the rest of Goku. Eis commands Nova to finish Goku off, but Nuova refuses because Goku can't defend himself. Eis beats up Nuova, and reissues his command. Nuova appears to obey, but his attack just melts the ice. Goku thanks Nuova, and promises to beat Eis in ten seconds.

Kazuya KutaAtsushi MaekawaSeptember 3, 1997 (1997-09-03)December 4, 2004
Goku and Eis begin to fight. When the battle is in Goku's favor, Eis resorts to dirty tricks, such as using the unconscious Pan and even his own brother as human shields. Eis freezes him again, but Goku is able to break free, and he beats the dragon. As Eis is begging for mercy, he suddenly slashes Goku's eyes, blinding him. Goku is able to quickly land a devastating punch, which finishes off the three-star dragon. Nuova hands Goku special eye drops to cure his blindness, but they are shot out of his hand. It was the one-star dragon, Syn Shenron, who was created (also revealed in Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files) by the wish that revived all victims of Frieza and his men. He quickly destroys Nuova, leaving only a blind Goku to fight him. An enraged and disgusted Goku criticizes him for killing one of his own kind, but Syn merely reminds him that Goku is responsible for the birth of all Shadow Dragons because he overused the Dragon Balls. Undaunted, Goku states that he always used the Dragon Balls for the good of the Earth and never used them selfishly even once, and tries to fight, but even when he lands a Kamehameha wave, he isn't able to do any damage to the one-star dragon. The dragon lands a powerful hit, which knocks Goku unconscious. Pan regains consciousness, and is horrified to see Goku hanging upside-down from a fairground tower.

Masayuki UchiyamaToshinobu OniSeptember 10, 1997 (1997-09-10)December 11, 2004
Goku reverts to his base state, and Syn grabs his unconscious body and drops him, intending to have him impaled on a statue of a swordsman. However, at that moment, Goten, Gohan, Trunks, and Majuub save him, and Mr. Satan, Chi-Chi, and Videl also show up for support. While Majuub tries to hold off the dragon, Gohan, Goten, and Trunks give all of their power to Goku. Goku absorbs more power than even he thought possible, and even though he's still blind, he can perfectly sense the one-star dragon's movements. The dragon can't even land a punch. Goku fires a Kamehameha wave at the dragon, seemingly killing him. The dragon reappears, having dodged the blast. He sucks up the other six Dragon Balls, which were scattered around the area, and he transforms into Omega Shenron.

Omega Shenron blasts everyone except Goku away. Goku counterattacks, but he was not able to inflict any damage at all. Omega Shenron retaliates by using the powers of the four, three, six, and five star dragons. At this point, Goku, whose vision has been restored, blasts a Kamehameha at Omega Shenron, who was taken by surprise, and seemingly destroys him with a Dragon Fist. However, he regenerates back to normal using the power of the five star dragon. Omega Shenron's power has far surpassed Goku's. Goku is no longer a match for him. Desperate, Goku grabs Omega Shenron. He begins to self-destruct, but Vegeta arrives and tells him not to. He knows firsthand that self-destruction doesn't work. Bulma arrives with the Blutz Wave Generator, and she blasts Vegeta with it. Vegeta transforms into a Great Ape, and it seems like he has lost control of himself, but he quickly becomes conscious of his actions. He then transforms into a Golden Great Ape and finally Super Saiyan 4, but even teaming up with Goku won't be enough to stop Omega Shenron. He suggests that he and Goku fuse together.

Yuji KuwataAtsushi MaekawaOctober 22, 1997 (1997-10-22)January 1, 2005
Omega Shenron realizes that Goku and Vegeta have a plan, so he rushes in to stop them. Gohan, Goten, and Trunks cut him off to buy their fathers some time. While they hold Omega Shenron off, Goku and Vegeta fuse. They are now Gogeta, and are far more powerful than Omega Shenron. His punches are too fast even for the dragon to see. But instead of quickly finishing the job, Gogeta toys with Omega Shenron. Furious, the dragon unleashes all of the Dragon Balls' negative energy in one massive attack. Gogeta redirects the ball easily away from the Earth, and the negative energy that was enveloping the Earth dissipates. Gogeta then hits Omega Shenron with a Big Bang Kamehameha x100, but it doesn't quite kill him. Before Gogeta can finish him off, he splits in two again, their immense power having cut the normal fusion time in half. Six of the balls have been dislodged from the dragon's body, and before he can suck them all back up, Goku grabs the four-star ball.

Takeo IdeAtsushi MaekawaOctober 29, 1997 (1997-10-29)January 8, 2005
To prevent Omega Shenron from eating the four-star ball and powering up completely, Goku eats it. Then he and Vegeta attempt to fuse again, but this time Omega Shenron knows what fusion is, and stops them. Goku and Vegeta try to fuse over and over again, but Omega Shenron stops them every time. He's too fast and powerful to avoid long enough to fuse. Then Goku and Vegeta use the after-image technique, which distracts Omega Shenron long enough for them to do the fusion dance. However, the dance doesn't work for some reason. Knowing that it won't work again, Omega Shenron lets them try one more time. This time, Goku reverts to his child self. Because he's been fighting longer than Vegeta, he is out of power, and therefore can't fuse. Suddenly, the four-star ball appears on Goku's forehead.
62"Rescue Goku" / "Rescue Goku!! The Last Ally Enters the Fray"
Transliteration: "Gokū o Sukue!! Saigo no Mikata Tōjō" (Japanese: 悟空を救え!最後の味方登場)
Masayuki UchiyamaAtsushi MaekawaNovember 5, 1997 (1997-11-05)January 15, 2005
The four-star ball flies out of his forehead and becomes Nuova, the four-star dragon. Nuova is no longer on Goku's side, since he was infected with Omega Shenron's negative energy after the dragon ate the ball. Nuova kicks Vegeta aside, and conjures a massive beam. Goku creates a Kamehameha wave, and both he and Nuova turn and fire at Omega Shenron. After being infected with Omega's negative energy, Nuova was flooded with positive energy while inside Goku. Nuova then grabs Omega and encases the two of them in flames. The ball of fire erupts, and it seems that Omega has been destroyed. But when the smoke clears, only Omega is left. Right before the explosion, Omega took cover inside of Nuova's heat-resistant body. Now Omega Shenron is at full power because he has all seven Dragon Balls inside him. To make matters even worse, Vegeta loses power, including Super Saiyan 4 as well, and reverts to his base state, and is unable to power up, since the Blutz Wave Generator was destroyed by Omega Shenron.
63"Universal Allies" / "A Miraculous Come-From-Behind Victory!! Goku Saves The Universe"

Kazuya KutaAtsushi MaekawaNovember 12, 1997 (1997-11-12)January 22, 2005
Omega Shenron is through playing games. He creates a giant energy ball and hurls it at the Earth. Vegeta prepares to attack it, but Goku knocks him aside and tries to push it back. After a long struggle, Omega's power is too much, and the ball explodes. Goku prevented the Earth from blowing up, but seemingly died in the blast. Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, and Goten all attack Omega Shenron, but are quickly beaten. Omega then once again floods the Earth with negative energy, and Vegeta, seeking to avenge Goku's apparent death, charges, only to be defeated quickly. Before losing consciousness, Vegeta assures him that he hasn't won yet, which proves true as a still-living Goku rises from the crater, holding a Spirit Bomb. He has gathered all the energy from the Earth, but it is not enough. He tells King Kai to ask the entire universe for power. During this time, Omega repeatedly blasts Goku, but cannot damage him, due to the immense amount of energy that Goku is now in possession of. Energy from all over the universe gathers on Earth, and the phenomenally powerful Universal Spirit Bomb is completed. Omega, now fearing for his life, swallows his pride and pleads for mercy, but Goku refuses to listen and hits him with the Spirit Bomb, destroying him. After the explosion, the others find Goku lying unconscious with the Dragon Balls scattered around him. Suddenly, the Dragon Balls activate on their own and the original Shenron himself appears.

Miyahara NaokiAtsushi MaekawaNovember 19, 1997 (1997-11-19)January 29, 2005
Shenron heals Goku, and explains that he can't allow everyone to overuse the Dragon Balls again, so he is leaving the Earth, and taking the balls with him, planning to return when the people of Earth learn to solve their own problems without using the balls. However, he allows one more wish at Goku's request, which is to repair all damage done to the Earth since the gateway to Hell was opened up by Android 17, as well as revive all the innocent people who have been killed. Just before Shenron leaves, he calls for Goku to accompany him. Goku entrusts Vegeta to take his place as Earth's savior, and as they fly away, Bulma reminisces about her time with Goku. Unexpectedly, Pan finds Goku's clothes on the ground, and Vegeta tells her to treasure them dearly before he and the other Z-warriors leave. Goku stops by Kame House to say goodbye to Master Roshi and Krillin, who has been revived. He also stops in hell to say goodbye to Piccolo, and tells him that he will one day get back into Heaven. As he lies on the back of Shenron, the seven Dragon Balls become one with Goku's body, and he becomes one with Shenron as Shenron finally vanishes. 100 years later, all of the Z-warriors have passed away of old age except for Pan. Vegeta Jr., Vegeta's descendant, and Goku Jr., Goku's descendant and Pan's grandson, are fighting in the junior division championship match at the World Martial Arts Tournament. Goku Jr. is wearing Goku's clothes that Pan picked up many years ago. Pan looks down and sees the now-adult Goku watching the fight, but when she goes down to find him, he's not there anymore; Pan merely assumes that she was imagining things. As Goku exits the stadium, he flashes back to many of the events that shaped his past, from his adoption by Grandpa Gohan to Baby's defeat. With his Power Pole in hand, Goku flies off on the Flying Nimbus into the distance and says "Till we meet again, guys."
