Vegito, just after performing the Spirit Cannon

The episode starts off with Super Buu fighting Super Vegito. Super Buu simply cannot beat Super Saiyan Vegito. Not being able to defeat Vegito, Super Buu gets really angry, so he digs deep into his well of power and tries to blow a hole through the universe with his Vice Shout. The sky turns dark and Vegito comments that the Earth's energy is around them.


Yamcha in the Other World

Dende says this would cause all life to end, as the universe would collapse. Then Dende has a flashback of when Super Buu ripped a hole through the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Vegito tries to beat Super Buu senseless so he can not complete the attack, but Super Buu has a shield around him. Vegito (with difficulty) finally breaks through and nails Super Buu, stopping the attack. He then taunts Super Buu, telling him to use his ability on him.



"It's not much fun being hunted down, is it Majin Buu? Being hunted just the way you hunted down our friends. DOES IT HURT?!?!"
