Galactic Patrol Kidnapping
Following the ordeal surrounding Broly, Goku trains with Vegeta in the Gravity Training Room. When asked about Ultra Instinct, Goku says that he hasn't been able to pull it off since the tournament. Bulma contacts the two and tells them that Mr. Satan had called because a mysterious gang was attempting to kidnap Good Buu to which the Saiyan pair make their way over using their own means of transport.
At Satan House, Mr. Satan attempts to stop a group of people boarding Buu onto their spaceship when Goku and Vegeta show up. Goku attacks the kidnappers and with no choice Merus, the leader, uses his stun gun to put Goku and Vegeta to sleep and tells his men to take them along as well.
Goku awakens to see Jaco and finds himself now on the Galactic Patrol HQ spaceship. Merus appears and apologizes for his actions but says he had no choice as he wouldn't listen. Vegeta asks why he needs Buu and Merus explains that a dangerous criminal has broken free of the Galactic Prison and in order to recapture him they need the assistance of the Grand Supreme Kai.
10 million years ago on Moro's Planet, the Grand Supreme Kai and the South Supreme Kai battle Moro. Using his powers, Moro absorbs life energy from a nearby planet and feasts upon it. He unleashes a torrent of energy upon the Supreme Kais and with no other choice, the Grand Supreme Kai decides to use up all of his Godly power in order to seal away Moro's magic. This allowed the Galactic Patrol to imprison him where he stayed locked away until recently in the present day.
Back in the present, Merus tells his listeners that Moro was still powerful without his magic and was sentenced to death though nobody was strong enough to end his life. Merus says that they require the Grand Supreme Kai's help once more and for that they must extract him from Good Buu.
Goku and Vegeta offer to help them catch Moro and the Galactic King bestows upon them the role of temporary special members of the Galactic Patrol with their insignia being attached to their own clothing. Just then, Merus and the others are urgently told of the Macareni Siblings and that they have stolen something and Goku and Vegeta join him on their mission to capture them.
On the Planet Jung, the Macareni Siblings are in the middle of a train robbery, trying to steal the valuable mineral called Blue Aurum. The Galactic Patrol pull along aside the train in their spaceship with Merus confronting the leader of the gang. Pasta Macareni detaches a compartment of the train before sending the two down separate tracks. Pasta blows the track on which Merus is currently riding but he is able to slow the compartments down before they fall from the track and cause a deadly explosion.
Goku stops the gang from escaping in their spaceship and upon returning the cargo and imprisoning the gang, the Galactic Patrol make their way back to headquarters. Their spaceship receives a report from another squad who have found Moro's location. After pointing out the direction in which Moro is located, Goku attempts a search of his own but while he is successful in finding him, Moro gives a sinister smile seemingly knowing that Goku is on to him.
After attempting to find Moro's ki, Goku tells Vegeta that Moro could sense that he was being searched for and that while his ki wasn't particularly large it was terrifying beyond what he'd ever felt. Merus explains that it is a result of his ability to absorb the life force of planets which he can then use as his own power and why he has lived for so long. Goku realizes that Moro appears to be heading toward New Namek though is unsure how he could know of it's location due to it being kept a secret.
Just then Pasta Macareni interrupts, saying that he has heard of the Namekians and their Dragon Balls from a fellow prisoner who previously worked under Frieza and that he was looking for strong warriors to help him recover them and word soon reached another of the prisoners, Moro, and would now appear to be in search of them himself.
Aboard Moro's vessel, the pilot Cranberry, tells Moro of how the Dragon Balls can grant three wishes and reminds him of the promise that he be allowed to use one to be able to escape to a planet where he will never be found. Moro agrees to this stating that he only requires the one wish for himself. Soon after they begin their descent on New Namek.
Goku in an urgent manner decides that they need to teleport to the planet immediately as they do not have time for Good Buu to awaken and takes Vegeta along with him. The two Saiyans arrive at the planet just in time for Moro to land. Goku warns Moori of the current events and the Namekians soon grab the Dragon Balls and flee the area.
Moro disembarks from the ship as Goku calls out to him to turn back and return to prison but he is ignored and uses his powers to pull Esca from hiding and grabs him by the neck labelling him as just food. As Moro begins to choke the child, Vegeta suddenly kicks him out of his grasp, grabbing Esca and returns him to his elder.
The Battle on Namek
Vegeta wanting to repay the pain that he caused the Namekians many years prior, decides to battle Moro first, transforming into a Super Saiyan in the process and attacks him head on but struggles to land a blow. As he charges towards him again, Moro uses his abilities to throw Vegeta around without using his hands but is surprised to find him still standing, now having transformed into Super Saiyan God. Moro attempts to use the same ability again but this time is unable and instead is struck with a kick to the face in retaliation. Voicing his disappointment at Moro's level, Vegeta casually destroys the trees and rocks being thrown towards him saying that they have come across plenty of bizarre powers in their time fighting already.
Back aboard the Galactic Patrol ship, Merus decides to head back to HQ as they will still require the Grand Supreme Kai. When Jaco tells him that the Saiyans have a decent chance of winning, Merus says that it is very unlikely that they will win. At the battlefield, Moro removes his cloak now ready to use his magic.
Goku points out Moro's ability to absorb life energy, something he had recently attempted to do with the Esca. Moro says that he will be using the same technique albeit with a different application. Moro summons a wave of energy upwards out of the ground from the very planet itself which catches Vegeta by surprise and makes him falter. Moro explains that the attack is not just from his power alone but also from New Namek. Vegeta takes to the air to escape but is then struck by several torrents of energy, he charges at Moro who in response brings up another wave of energy in front of himself as a shield.
When Goku offers to switch places with Vegeta, he is denied. Vegeta tells Moro that he'll soon reach his limit if he keeps using the same move but Moro tells him it has no limit as he can continue to use it until the planet itself has been extinguished. Vegeta admits that he is unable to capture him if he can't get close and has no more power ups left. Vegeta asks Moro why he came to New Namek and that depending on what his goal is, they could maybe even be of some use to him. Moro mocks Vegeta but believes his cooperation could be useful so he complies and tells Vegeta that he desires the Namekian Dragon Balls. Moro asks Vegeta if he knows anything about them and when Vegeta says he is unaware of the details, Moro attempts to finish him off.
Vegeta is able to fend off Moro who for the first time comes after him still using the power of the planet for his attacks. While being pushed back Vegeta asks Moro what his wish would be as he already possesses enough power but Moro says that he doesn't, as at the height of his power, Vegeta would have been nothing more than an insect and so he desires his full strength to be given back to him that he lost in his many years spent in confinement. Having tricked his goal out of him, Vegeta stops playing possum and powers up to Super Saiyan Blue. Surprised at his new level of power, Moro creates even more attacks to finish him off but Vegeta powers up to Super Saiyan God SS Evolved to easily outmaneuver everything thrown at him and kicks Moro hard in the stomach which sends him crashing into the sea.
Moro emerges from the water and Goku warns Vegeta of something strange going on. Moro charges up an energy attack which grows more powerful as he steals energy away from the planet, Goku, Vegeta and the Namekians, causing them to grow faint. To Goku and Vegeta's surprise, Moro does not throw the attack but instead condenses it and eats it granting him another power up. Vegeta attempts to turn into a Super Saiyan Blue once again but is unable too. Now much more powerful than before and Vegeta the weaker, Moro quickly grabs him and throws him hard, telling him that he too was hiding his true intent.
Moro now throws a drained Goku and Vegeta around with ease. Vegeta attempts to strike back with his Galick Gun but Moro simply swallows the energy blast whole. Meanwhile on Beerus' Planet, Whis notices a decline in energy on Planet New Namek and informs Beerus who says that he is fine with letting events play out as the Namek does not have any interesting food.
Back on New Namek, Goku attempts to teleport himself and Vegeta back to the Galactic Patrol but doesn't have energy. After being hit by large energy blast, Moro grabs the two Saiyans and absorbs the last bits of their energy altering his appearance slightly to look more youthful. The battle over with, Cranberry uses his Scouter and pinpoints the location of the villages that should each hold a Dragon Ball. As they head off in their spaceship, the nearby Moori and Esca rush over to the fallen Goku and Vegeta to find them still breathing.
On Earth, an angry Bulma expresses how it's been a week since Goku and Vegeta left and after questioning Mr. Satan realises that the Galactic Patrol are responsible. She decides to go to Tights home so that she can use her communicator to get in touch with Jaco. Meanwhile at the Galactic Patrol HQ, Jaco returns and soon gets in contact with Bulma who asks that a ship be sent her way as she wants to go over there herself but Jaco quickly hangs up on her before giving an answer. Merus on the other hand is told that Good Buu has finally awoken and goes to see him.
Three days later on Namek, Moori watches over Goku and Vegeta, who have slightly recovered due to Esca using his healing powers on them. They are informed that while asleep, Moro had attacked three villages and obtained their Dragon Balls. Just then they feel the impact of Moro's power as he begins to attacks Tsuburi's village. As Goku laments his inability to help, Moori tells him that they have assimilation as a last resort. Several dozen of the strongest Namekian warriors from each village combined together to form a mighty warrior who heads to the village to confront Moro however he is immediately killed in a single strike before he is unable to do anything. As the Namekian villagers express their shock in what they just saw, Moro sarcastically apologizes for killing him before he could even see his face.
Moori is devastated at the loss of their last hope and Vegeta notes that Moro appears to have grown even more powerful in the last few days. Goku asks how Moro is able to find the Dragon Balls and Vegeta tells him that Moro is locating the villages by picking up the Namekians chi. Goku suggests having the Namekian survivors flee from the villages for the time being so that Moro is not able to find the remaining Dragon Balls.
At Tsuburi's village, Cranberry can't seem to find the Dragon Ball. Moro points a house out for him to try and Cranberry finds it immediately causing him to ask Moro if he can detect their location though he does not answer. On Earth at The Lookout, Dende senses that something terrible is happening on his home planet as does Piccolo and wonders if it has something to do with Goku and Vegeta.
Moro, now having six of the Dragon Balls in his possession heads to the location of the final ball. Goku and Vegeta sense Moro heading for their location and they both head out to confront him. Moro arrives only to be surprised to see the two Saiyans still alive but vows to make sure that they will die this time. Goku and Vegeta charge towards Moro, still injured, only to be intercepted by a Galactic Patrol Spaceship. Merus riding on top, shoots down the ship carrying Moro. Moro flies out through the roof only to be pursued by Irico piloting the ship. Merus closes in on Moro and using one of his weapons fires a substance that covers Moro's body and entraps him from within.
Goku asks Merus if they plan to take him back to prison while trapped but Merus says it will not hold him for long and calls for another on board his ship. Just then Jaco and Good Buu fall from the ship with Buu having been affected by motion sickness on the ride over and is now out of it again. Nevertheless Buu comes to and Jaco tells Vegeta that Buu is now able to seal away Moro's magic due to the Galactic Patrol's medium bringing back the Grand Supreme Kai's old memories through Buu.
Upon seeing Moro, Buu remembers him as though he were the Grand Supreme Kai himself and becomes angered. Moro breaks from his entrapment and faces Buu in battle though Buu appears to dominate the battle. Vegeta asks Goku if he'd noticed that Buu's energy is not dropping and that Moro's absorption does not have the same effect on him as it did on them.
