Pan protecting Goku from Baby

With Baby fully powered up again, Goku tries to trick him into making his own mistakes, but Pan realizes that Goku is maxed out, so she flies and uses energy attacks against Great Ape Baby. The energy attacks have no effect on Great Ape Baby, so he decides to target Pan. Goku decides to use his little bit of remaining energy on a Kamehameha Wave, but Trunks arrives and manages to distract Great Ape Baby.

Gohan helping injured Goku

Great Ape Baby decides to change targets and starts beating up Trunks, but Gohan and Goten both arrive and save Trunks. Goten and Trunks decide to try and do the Fusion Dance, but Goku reveals it will not be enough. He tells them they need to give him their energy so he can defeat Great Ape Baby.

Great Ape Baby realizes this fact also, so he attacks them and will not let power Goku up, forcing Goku to use his little bit of remaining energy on a Solar Flare to temporarily blind Great Ape Baby. This gives a chance for Gohan, Goten, and Trunks to begin powering up Goku, but Great Ape Baby proves again to be resilient and rebounds quickly.

Majuub inside the body of Great Ape Baby

Realizing that Goku still needs time to power up, Majuub turns back into his Human form inside of Great Ape Baby and begins attacking him from the inside just like Great Ape Baby's eggs did to everyone else. He holds Great Ape Baby off while the Saiyans power Goku up. Once Majuub runs out of power, he is spit out of Great Ape Baby. Great Ape Baby then uses a Super Galick Gun on the Saiyans.
