The Original Boo is Revived") is the seventh episode of the Kid Buu Saga and the two hundred eighty-second overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. This episode first aired in Japan on November 8, 1995. Its original American airdate was March 24, 2003.


Vegeta endures Kid Buu's assault

Kid Buu continues to choke Vegeta and smash him through many rocks. Meanwhile, in the physical plane, Kibito Kai and Dende plan to try and help Goku, but Old Kai says that their help is useless against Kid Buu's superior strength, and it would just be one more thing for Goku to worry about.

As Kid Buu is about to finish Vegeta off as Vegeta reverts to his base form, Mr. Satan arises, thinking that this is all just a dream, and tries to fight Kid Buu. Goku, witnessing this, then expresses horror and shame that Mr. Satan is actually stepping in to fight Kid Buu, begging to know what he had ever done to deserve this event. Kid Buu ignores Vegeta to kill Mr. Satan, but he manages to stay alive by dodging his attacks, because the fat Majin Buu, is secretly stopping Kid Buu from within him. Goku is unable to figure out why Kid Buu cannot finish Mr. Satan off, but just then Kid Buu releases the fat and good Majin Buu from his body and spits him out.

Kid Buu, now relieved of any kindness, gets ready to kill Mr. Satan. Majin Buu, however, steps in to save Mr. Satan. As the two Buu's battle it out, Vegeta advises Goku to use this time to power up but when Goku tries to do so he starts to lose energy and reverts to his base form.

Differences from the manga

  • Kibito Kai and Dende almost joining the battlefield on the Sacred World of the Kai before Old Kai urges them not to leave is exclusive to the anime.
  • In the anime, after Kid Buu spits out Good Buu, Mr. Satan goes to check on him, and after realizing that Buu protected him once again, he attacks Kid Buu to no avail. In the manga, this does not happen.


  • Good Buu reappears in this episode after he was turned into chocolate by Evil Buu in "Buu Against Buu".
