Super Saiyan 4 Goku

After the recap, we find that Goku has indeed mastered his self-control again and become a Super Saiyan 4. Pan approaches her Grandfather while asking him if he was still a hero. Staring at her intently, Goku cracks a smile to confirm he is his old self, much to the relief of Pan. Meanwhile, Elder Kai celebrates Goku ascending while his comrades are in awe at the form.

On Planet Tuffle, Goku looks at the damage he caused while Pan updates him on his rampage. Mr. Satan celebrate the return of Goku, and they prepare for the final showdown with Baby Vegeta to begin as Goku tells Pan and Mr. Satan that he will find Baby and defeat him once and for all, as he goes to Baby Vegeta's lookout to confront the evil Tuffle-Saiyan. He flies off with great power, amazing them at this act.

At Baby Vegeta's lookout, Baby Vegeta is trying to figure out why Goku could transform and he could not. He then detects that Goku is coming for him. He tells Bulma that she has a limited amount of time to find a way for him to transform, and then Goku enters and attacks.

Goku plays around with Baby Vegeta, and every time Baby Vegeta hits him, he barely feels anything. The Supreme Kais begin to get frustrated because Goku is not taking things seriously and it comes back to bite him. Bulma finds a way to focus the Blutz Wave Generator directly onto Baby Vegeta, and it allows Baby Vegeta to transform into a Golden Great Ape.

Goku realizes his mistake, but he doesn't panic, as he feels that he still has more than enough power to handle Golden Great Ape Baby Vegeta... but what new tricks does the evil Tuffle have in store for our hero?
