"Goku's Ascension" (最強!!悟空が超サイヤ人4に!! Saikyō!! Gokū ga Sūpā Saiya-jin Fō ni!!, lit. "The Mightiest!! Goku Becomes Super Saiyan 4!!") is the nineteenth episode of the Baby Saga and the thirty-fifth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. This episode first aired in Japan on January 29, 1997. Its original American airdate was June 5, 2004.
After the recap, we find that Goku has indeed mastered his self-control again and become a Super Saiyan 4. Pan and 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.
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 does not begin to panic as he feels that he still has more than enough power to handle Baby Vegeta, but what new tricks does Baby Vegeta have in store for our hero?
