"Will the Potara Prevail?!" (せいこうするか!?ポタラのがったい Seikō Suru Ka!? Potara no Gattai!, lit. "Is This Gonna Work?! The Potara Fusion!") is the three hundred eighth chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the five hundred second overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Goku suddenly stops and asks if they should be Super Saiyan first. Old Kai says there's no point, they can do it afterwards. Besides, the stress would be too much for their body and shorten their lifespan. You can only use the Potara once in your life, though. Goku asks if him if he has ever used them. He explains that an ugly Old Witch once took one to try to be a pretty gal, and this is why he's able to do these mysterious things. Kibito Kai interrupts them, saying there's no time for talking. Goku agrees, and quickly teleports away.

Buu prepares to launch his attack, while Gohan, Tien Shinhan, and Dende are all watch on in shock. Mr. Satan on the other hand closes his eyes and fires his gun, apologizing to Majin Buu. Goku suddenly appears behind Buu, and throws a Destructo Disc, cutting Buu in half and slicing off the end of his forelock. Gohan wonders how his father was able to come back to the living world. Mr. Satan opens his eyes, and thinks he's cut Buu's body all up with that shot. Boo recognizes Goku as the guy with all the weird transformations. Buu says it's no use if he's come to help. Goku grins and very confidently tells Buu he's wrong, because he has an incredible power up item this time. Buu's lower body, which landed on the ground behind Tien, stand back up and kick him hard, knocking him out. Buu's lower and upper body reunite, and Buu smugly comments that while that guy seemed like quite an expert, he was still just a small fry that was taken out with a mere kick. The rest of them are all small fries too. Goku asks why he'd bother restoring himself if that was really the case.

Buu thinks Goku must really want to die. Goku yells over to Gohan and tosses the other Potara at him, but Gohan wasn't paying attention and misses it. The earring falls in-between some nearby rocks and Goku tells him to hurry and find it, then put it on his right ear so they can fuse and defeat Buu. However, Buu thinks that would still be useless, but he won't allow them to fuse anyway. First he'll kill Goku, but Goku begs him to wait as Gohan searches through the rocks. Buu rushes at Goku, and so he becomes Super Saiyan 3 and prepares to fight. Buu then suddenly stops mid-air, just as Gohan finds the Potara. Buu begins transforming again, until he starts to resemble Piccolo. Goku laughs, thinking it's because Piccolo is now the strongest one inside Boo, since the youngsters have defused. Goku powers down, disappointed that now Gohan alone can defeat Buu like this.

Buu smirks and says he had an insurance plan, just in case of this. Goku wonders what he means, and Buu points to his forelock that he didn't bother to restore. The severed piece down on the ground then turns into a blob and suddenly envelops Gohan. The Potara drops to the ground, and Goku flies over and grabs it as Buu begins to transform again. The Kaiōshin think it's all over now, as Boo is now wearing Gohan's dōgi. Goku frantically starts looking around. “I was gonna fuse with Gohan… There ain’t no way around it!! Who else could I fuse with… Tenshinhan’s down… Dende ain’t a fighter… Mi-Mister Satan…?!”
