"Til we meet again, guys!"
Goku to the audience in the final part of the episode

"Until We Meet Again" (さらばくう…またまで Saraba Gokū… Mata Au Hi made, lit. "Goodbye, Goku… Until the Day We Meet Again") is the seventeenth and final episode of the Shadow Dragon Saga, the sixty-fourth overall and final episode of Dragon Ball GT, and the final episode of the original Dragon Ball anime trilogy itself. This episode first aired in Japan on November 19, 1997. Its original American airdate was January 29, 2005.


Goku uses energy from all around the universe and kills Omega Shenron with the Super Ultra Spirit Bomb. The rest of the Z-Fighters come running to find Goku unconscious on the ground, when all of a sudden, the original Shenron appears without being summoned, something that has never happened before.

Shenron then heals Goku and informs him and the other Z-Fighters that he will not be able to grant any wishes for a long time due to everything that has happened involving the Dragon Balls and their negative energy, but Goku asks him if he will grant just one "for old times' sake". He asks Shenron if he can bring everyone killed by Super 17 and the Shadow Dragons back to life. Shenron grants the wish. Everyone begins to worry that Goku is leaving them again.

Shenron asks Goku if he will come along and Goku climbs on Shenron's back. After Goku climbs on, a recovering Vegeta runs over and asks Goku where he is going. A moment later, Vegeta realizes that Goku is going to train with Shenron and help fulfill this wish. Before going, Goku tells Vegeta that he is now Earth's protector and tells him that the planet's safety is in his hands now. Goku and Shenron go flying, and the Dragon Balls begin circulating around Goku. Chi-Chi tells Goku to be home in time for dinner, but Goku and Shenron fly off. Bulma begins to remember her first-time meeting Goku when she was only sixteen years old while she was searching for the Dragon Balls and says that she is going to miss him.

Gohan, Videl and Chi-Chi return to their homes. Goten and Gohan try to comfort Chi-Chi by telling her that Goku always comes back for dinner. Pan asks Trunks if the Dragon Balls will ever come back. Trunks talks to Pan about the Dragon Balls and is confident that they will again come back one day. Pan looks worried, and she then stumbles upon Goku's Gi. Vegeta tells her to take good care of it and then flies off, leaving Pan alone. Pan, with tears in her eyes, wonders if Goku will ever come back during her lifetime.


Krillin and Goku's final meeting at Kame House

Goku asks the dragon to stop for a moment at Kame House to see Krillin, who was one of the many people revived by the final wish. They start talking about the past and end up having a little play-fight. Krillin wins and then Goku disappears. Master Roshi thanks Shenron for the Dragon Balls. Goku also visits Piccolo, who is now in Hell keeping watch over everyone there. Goku tells Piccolo that he will get out of Hell someday and then leaves without saying goodbye. Many people see Goku with Shenron, including Yamcha and Puar who are fixing their car, as well as Tien Shinhan and Chiaotzu, who are busy training.

Goku, feeling tired, lies down on Shenron's back. The Dragon Balls enter Goku's body, with the Four-Star Ball going into his heart, and he then disappears. Shenron lets out one final, mighty roar before vanishing.

100 years later, the 64th World Martial Arts Tournament is underway. A now-elderly Pan is the last living Z-Fighter, as all the rest have died of natural causes. She has a grandson, Goku Jr., who is participating in the Junior Division whilst wearing Goku's old Gi. A lady that looks very much like Bulma sits down right beside Pan. She wears the earrings of the Capsule Corporation and is a descendant of Trunks, Bulma, Bulla and Vegeta. She asks Pan if Goku Jr. is her son, but Pan replies "He's my grandson!". The lady apologizes and says that her son is still going to win. In the stadium, there are two statues dedicated to the two most admired heroes in the history of Earth: Mr. Satan and Goku.

Goku Jr.'s opponent is none other than Vegeta Jr.. The fight starts and they both hit each other hard. Vegeta Jr. then decides to turn into a Super Saiyan and Goku Jr. transforms as well. Vegeta Jr. then tells him "Hey, that's pretty cool there! I didn't know we could both become blonde!". They resume fighting and the scene switches over to Pan, who looks at the other side of the crowd and sees Goku (now an adult again without his tail visible) watching the battle. She begins running to where he was at, and the scene goes back to the tournament, where Goku Jr. and Vegeta Jr. are still fighting.

The people are shocked at the winner of the tournament, but it is never shown who wins. Pan keeps running until she is outside the stadium, but Goku is nowhere to be seen. Pan begins thinking "Pan, you old goat, you must be seeing things again..." (or "You were here, weren't you Grandpa Goku?" in the original Japanese version). Goku is then shown walking through the crowd. A long flashback of Goku's life is shown, with many of the prominent moments of the Dragon Ball series being played. After the flashback ends, Goku catches his Power Pole and flies off on the Flying Nimbus cloud. Goku's final words are "Til we meet again, guys!".
