"Vegeta Attacks" (なめるな!! ベジータいかりのしょせんとっ Nameru na!! Bejīta Ikari no Shosen Toppa, lit. "Don't Toy With Me!! Vegeta Breaks Through the First Fight in a Fury") is the third episode of the Babidi Saga and the two hundred twenty-second overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. This episode first aired in Japan on March 23, 1994. Its original American airdate was October 17, 2001.


Pui Pui is obviously outclassed by Vegeta

Inside Babidi's spaceship, Vegeta begins to fight Pui Pui and says that he is no match for him, but Pui Pui thinks he's just bluffing. He throws a kick and Vegeta blocks it. Pui Pui begins punching at him, but Vegeta dodges. Babidi then changes the room into Zoon, Pui Pui's home planet. It has x10 the gravity of Earth. Not knowing that Vegeta is used to x450 gravity, Pui Pui claims that this will give him the advantage. Vegeta says that Pui Pui would have an advantage if the room were at 500x gravity, but says that at only x10 gravity, he can't even feel the difference. When Pui Pui rushes toward him, Vegeta kicks him away. He rushes again at Vegeta, but Vegeta moves away. Stunned, Pui Pui looks behind him. Vegeta asks if Pui Pui still thinks he's bluffing, and obliterates him with his Double Galick Cannon. The door to the next stage opens.

Pui Pui is incinerated by Vegeta

At the World Martial Arts Tournament, Goten complains to Trunks that he's tired. They go to the fighters' relaxation room. The World Tournament Announcer follows them, and is blocked by a cleaning lady. He goes in the room, only to find Goten and Trunks saying that they did well in the Junior Division, plus Mighty Mask's clothes. He asks where he is, and Trunks says he's in a closet. The announcer checks, and Trunks quickly moves to the shower and turns the shower on, and goes back. The announcer yells at Mighty Mask, and tells him they don't know when the match will start. The announcer then leaves the room as he tells Goten and Trunks to not disturb Mighty Mask, still unaware that Goten and Trunks are disguised as Mighty Mask.

Back at Babidi's spaceship, Yakon appears before Goku, Vegeta, Gohan and Shin.
