"Deep Trouble!!" (絶体絶命大大大ピンチ！！ Zettai Zetsumei Dai-Dai-Dai-Pinchi!!, lit. "A Desperate Big-Big-Big Pinch!!") is the three hundred second chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the four hundred ninety-sixth overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
Super Buu begins recovering from his injuries, as a now-depowered Gotenks laughs nervously. Piccolo thinks it's really all over now. Back in the Sacred World of the Kai, Goku asks Old Kai to please hurry, as Gotenks is now utterly helpless against Super Buu. Old Kai says he can go, as he's been done for about five minutes now. Gohan asks why he didn't say so sooner, and the old man says it's more dramatic this way. Gohan realizes he has to hurry, and asks how he can become that warrior of ultimate strength. Old Kai says it's essentially like transforming into that "Super Whatever" and focusing a kiai. Gohan concentrates, and unleashes his power, nearly blowing everyone away.
Gohan hasn't changed much visually, and Goku is amazed that he isn't even a Super Saiyan. Supreme Kai says they need to hurry to the Earth, but Kibito says he'll take Gohan alone. The two of them would just get in this incredible savior's way, and Kibito intends to leave right after he takes Gohan. Goku feels bad that he can't take Gohan himself. He says they won't meet again until Gohan dies and comes to the Other World for good. Goku tells him good luck, to beat up Super Buu, and they then hug. Kibito teleports away with Gohan, and Old Kai scoffs that he didn't even get a thank you for all he's done.
On Earth, Gohan has a favor to ask of Kibito: he wants different clothes. He wants to fight in the same gi as his late father. Kibito says that's a simple thing, and asks if the color was the same as the excrement of the frogs on Planet Popol. Gohan says it was a "golden yellow" color and, in a flash, it's done. Kibito says he'll be praying for him from the Sacred World of the Kai, and Gohan says to give his regards to the two Supreme Kais. Kibito teleports away, and Gohan flies off. Meanwhile, Gotenks' fusion time finally expires, and he defuses back into Goten and Trunks. The two boys are rightfully thinking that they'll be killed now, with Piccolo saying that he'll fight with them, even though it won't do much good anyway. Super Buu then sits down and starts sleeping, much to the three Z-Fighters' confusion. However, they then feel a great ki headed their way, causing Super Buu to wake up in shock.
