"Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta" (敵か味方か…大猿ベジータ大暴れ Teki ka Mikata ka… Ōzaru Bejīta Ōabare, lit. "Friend or Foe… Great Ape Vegeta's Great Rampage") is the twelfth episode of the Shadow Dragon Saga and the fifty-ninth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. This episode first aired in Japan on September 17, 1997. Its original American airdate was December 25, 2004.
After ingesting the Dragon Balls, the ultimate Shadow Dragon, Omega Shenron was born. To push Goku to fight better, Omega attacks his family and friends (consisting of his sons, wife, daughter-in-law, Mr. Satan, and Trunks). Omega is able to use the abilities of the previous Shadow Dragons against Goku. He eventually regains his vision, much to Omega's surprise, and performs the Dragon Hammer against Omega. Goku is able to blow him up, but Omega regenerates back together. Becoming more desperate to save his family and the Earth, Goku decides to self-destruct himself. He grabs a hold of Omega from behind and almost completes the technique before Vegeta arrives and tells him not to do it; having first hand experience with self-destruction, he knows Goku will only succeed in killing himself and not Omega.
Vegeta then tells Goku that he has the tool he needs to reach Super Saiyan 4, much to Goku's shock. Thanks to Bulma's Blutz Wave Generator, Vegeta transforms into a Great Ape. At first, Vegeta seems to have lost control of himself and begins crushing Goku. However, Vegeta states that he was simply fooling them, and transforms into a Golden Great Ape, and then, a Super Saiyan 4. Everyone is amazed by the overwhelming power the two Super Saiyans 4 have, and Chi-Chi and Bulma have a usual quarrel over whose husband is the best. The two Super Saiyans 4 head off against Omega Shenron, but they are still not powerful enough to beat the fearsome dragon. So, Vegeta suggests that they fuse, much to Goku's surprise that Vegeta would suggest it in the first place.
