"Baby Put to Rest" (これで最後だ!ついにベビー消滅 Kore de Saigo da! Tsui ni Bebī Shōmetsu, lit. "This is the End! At Last, Baby's Annihilation") is the twenty-third episode of the Baby Saga and the thirty-ninth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. This episode first aired in Japan on February 26, 1997. Its original American airdate was July 3, 2004.
The battle between Super Full Power Saiyan 4 Goku and Golden Great Ape Baby Vegeta continues on Planet Plant. The tuffleized humans ask Baby Vegeta to protect them, and Goku reveals that his power is just "the tip of the iceberg". Baby Vegeta refuses to listen and proclaims that the strongest will triumph, to which Goku replies that darkness is weaker than light, so he will win. They begin fighting again, with the Saiyans and Pan giving sideline commentary. The two appear to be evenly-matched.
On the Sacred World of the Kai, Kibito Kai returns and gets Old Kai mad at him until he says that he plans on going to Earth and using the Sacred Water to free everyone from Baby Vegeta's control, which makes Old Kai happy to have another Kai around.
Back on the battlefield, Baby Vegeta declares that it's time for Goku to die, but his Super Galick Gun misses because of Goku's Instant Transmission. Baby Vegeta decides to fire a bunch of energy waves at Goku, but all of the waves are pushed away from Goku by his energy, causing magma to rise to the surface on parts of Planet Plant.
Baby Vegeta refuses to accept defeat and decides to resort to his ultimate attack, the Revenge Death Ball Final, not caring if it destroys Planet Plant in the process. Everyone watches as Goku takes the attack head-on. Baby Vegeta declares that Goku has no chance of defeating him now, as he's changed the technique to absorb Goku.
Goku, thinking of his friends and family, refuses to give up, so he powers up and causes the Revenge Death Ball Final to turn into a cyclone of energy that Goku absorbs into himself. Goku then uses this newfound energy to become even stronger, and he launches a powerful 10x Kamehameha at Baby Vegeta.
The 10x Kamehameha hits Baby Vegeta head-on and sends him crashing to the ground, knocking him out cold. Goku then severs Baby Vegeta's tail with an energy blast. Baby realizes that he's lost, so he abandons Vegeta's body and decides to flee Planet Plant so that he can remain alive, vowing that the Z-Fighters haven't seen the last of him.
The Z-Fighters return to Earth with Goku's Instant Transmission before Goku reverts to his child form and, with the help of Kibito Kai, use the Sacred Water to free Earth's populace from Baby's mind control. However, they also find out some bad news. Immediately after Goku, Pan and Trunks brought the Black Star Dragon Balls back, Baby Vegeta made a wish to them when the one-year time limit was not up, which, after Pan calculates with the information given to her, means that the Earth is due to explode in two weeks' time.
