Dragon Ball Wiki

"Amazing. His energy, it's enormous. I haven't sensed anything like this since...since Gohan fought Cell. But Majin Buu was able to take Gohan down, he killed him! I only hope Vegeta can't afford the same fate. He's the last chance we've got. And if he fails...No! Vegeta, you can't fail! Unless Goku reappears, all of our lives, this whole world depends on you!"
— Piccolo's thoughts while looking Vegeta fight Majin Buu

"The Warrior's Decision" (せんけつ!! じんはオレがまつする Senshi no Ketsui!! Majin wa Ore ga Shimatsu Suru, lit. "A Warrior's Resolution!! I Will Dispose of the Majin") is the fifth episode of the Majin Buu Saga and the two hundred thirty-sixth overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. This episode first aired in Japan on August 17, 1994. Its original American airdate was November 12, 2001.



Vegeta charges the Final Impact

Majin Vegeta continues his physical assault on Buu, seemingly pummeling him in a one sided fight, worrying the onlooking Babidi while the others comment on how powerful Vegeta as grown. Piccolo comments that Vegeta is now even more powerful than Gohan was back when he fought Cell at the Cell Games.


Majin Buu prepares an Angry Explosion

However thanks to Buu's Regeneration all of his damage is undone just as quickly. Vegeta powers up and uses his Final Impact and blows a hole right through him, but once again fails to inflict any lasting damage, regenerating immediately. Buu now growing angry, uses the Angry Explosion, with the sheer power shaking the Z-Fighters to their core and leaving a giant crater in the ground and injuring Vegeta who was caught up within the explosion.

Skin 2

Majin Buu beats Vegeta senseless while wrapped in Potbelly Attack

Buu pulls off a piece off his body mass and uses it to ensnare Vegeta and render him unable to overcome. Unable to defend himself, Buu plays around with his victim beating him mercilessly. Furious, Trunks turns into a Super Saiyan and rushes to the aid of his father while Goten follows after him in order to help.

Differences from the manga[]

  • When Krillin is searching for Goten, Goten emerges from the rocks with a lizard on his head, spooking Krillin. This did not happen in the manga.


  • For whatever reason, the remastered dub adds Babidi's voiceover, yelling at Majin Buu to finish off Majin Vegeta. "BOO!! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! FINISH HIM!! TEAR HIM TO RIBBONS! DO YOU HEAR ME?! RIBBONS!! I DON'T WANT THERE TO BE ANYTHING LEFT OF HIM WHEN YOU'RE THROUGH!! Show him what happens to people who blow up my spaceship! ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO ME?! I'M GIVING YOU AN ORDER!! DO SOMETHING!! DO YOU WANT ME TO PUT YOU BACK IN YOUR BALL?! BECAUSE I WILL, IF HE'S NOT DEAD BY THE TIME I COUNT TO THREE!! ONE... TWO... THREE!!" This was not in the original Japanese version, or even in the original English dub.
