The Elder Kai reveals that the purpose of Goku's training was to grow his tail, but because there is no time to waste, he decides to pull it out manually, using a giant pair of pliers.

After numerous failed tries, Goku ties Elder Kai to a rock and tells him to hold on to the pliers. He flies away as hard as he can, which pulls his tail out to full length. Back on the Tuffle planet, Majuub creates a giant energy wave and aims it at Baby. After a long struggle, Baby is able to deflect the wave back at Majuub, turning him into chocolate, which Baby eats. Goku arrives and powers up to Super Saiyan 3. But even with his tail back, he doesn't seem to have gained any strength. Baby knocks him to the ground and prepares to deliver the final blow, when Goku looks up at the earth. This causes him to transform into an Oozaru with golden hair.

Fully transformed, Goku begins to attack Baby. It is clear that he is now stronger than Baby, but in his present state, he can't focus his mind on fighting. He goes on a rampage, destroying everything in sight, while Baby looks on. He sees the earth again, and tries to run towards it. Standing on a mountaintop, Goku is reaching for the earth, when Pan shows up. She tries to bring him to his senses, but he swats her away. Then she shows him a picture of their family on a beach vacation, and it, combined with Pan's tears, reminds Goku of who he is. He then transforms again. Goku is now at Super Saiyan 4.

Again, the transformation was shown, but at the beginning of the episode this time. In his new state, Goku's powers are incredible. He finds Baby, and they begin to fight. It seems like Baby still has the upper hand, but Goku reveals that he hasn't even been trying. Now on the offensive, Goku seems indestructible. Baby is no match for him. Bulma contacts Baby, saying that she's found a way to focus Bluntz waves onto him, which would turn him into an Oozaru. She hits him with this beam just before Goku releases a Kamehameha wave, and Baby transforms into a golden-haired Oozaru.

Goku and Baby begin to fight. In his new state, Baby is more powerful, but just like with Goku, lacks control of himself. He begins to destroy his own city and his people. Goku is able to fight back, and is confident that he can win. Baby begins to speak to Goku normally. He says that while Vegeta's body transformed, he, the parasite, remained unchanged. He was only destroying his people for fun. He then aims a Super Galic Gun right at the earth, and Goku isn't quick enough to stop it. Though the Earth is not destroyed, the blast has caused it significant damage, and it won't be able to take another direct hit. Goku hits Baby with a Kamehameha wave, but it does little damage. Baby aims another beam right at the earth, but Goku gets in the way and takes the full force of the blast.

Goku's Kamehameha wave has a delayed effect, and knocks Baby down. They get back up, only to knock each other out. Elder Kai takes advantage of this and sends Kibito Kai to Dende's lookout. His plan is to use the Sacred Water, the same water that was used to return earth to normal after they beat Garlic Jr, to revive the other Saiyans. Kibito Kai finds the water and uses it on Dende and Mr. Popo. Then he arrives on the Tuffle planet and uses it to revive Trunks. Bulma uses the antenna again to restore Baby to his full strength. Goku wakes up, and it seems like he, too, has regained his strength, though he is only bluffing. He tries his best to avoid Baby's attacks while still seeming confident.

Goku can no longer avoid Baby, and he gets severely beaten. Pan can't stand to look on anymore and rushes in to confront Baby. Baby knocks her down and is about to stomp on her, when Trunks shows up and blasts Baby away. Gohan and Goten arrive, and they prepare to fight. Goku stops them, saying that the only thing powerful enough to stop Baby is Super Saiyan 4. He instructs them to give him their energy so he can fight. Realizing this, Baby attacks them. Baby begins writhing in pain. Majuub, whom Baby had eaten, has regained his form and is attacking from the inside, revealing that he had purposely allowed Baby to deflect his attack and eat him. This gives them enough time to give Goku their energy. Baby spits Majuub out, and with Goku at full power, the final battle begins.

Now that he's at full power, Goku is much stronger than Baby. With no other way out, Baby hits Goku with his Revenge Death Ball. Goku is enveloped by the blast, but refuses to give up. He absorbs the energy. He then fires a powerful Kamehameha wave at Baby, knocking him unconscious. Goku then blasts away Baby's tail, causing him to regress into his earlier form. Knowing that he is greatly outmatched, Baby extracts himself from Vegeta's body and flees to his ship. Vegeta recovers, but Baby flies away. Determined to finish him off, Goku fires another Kamehameha wave at Baby's ship, blasting it into the sun. They head back to earth and sprinkle the entire surface with sacred water, while Kibito Kai and Gohan do the same on the Tuffle planet. The earth begins to shake violently. Because Baby made another wish on the Black Star Dragon Balls, the earth is still in danger of exploding. In two weeks, it will be one year since Goku was transformed, and that will mark the end of the earth.

Goku finds him, along with Piccolo. He loses his Super Saiyan 4, and can't use Instant Transmission. Piccolo gives him his energy, allowing him to make one last trip. He takes the boy back, but Piccolo lets go of him and is left on earth. He telepathically tells Gohan that the Black Star Dragon Balls are too dangerous, and he plans to sacrifice himself so that they can never be used again.

Goku makes it to the finals, but is accidentally knocked out of the ring by his opponent after being distracted by Vegeta, and loses. Pan makes it to the semi-finals of the Adult Division, but forfeits because she doesn't want to turn out like her grandpa, Mr. Satan. Majuub makes it to the finals against Mr. Satan, and takes the fight seriously. He is about to win, when Buu, from inside of him, tells him to let Mr. Satan win, as Mr. Satan gives the world hope.

When he recovers, he explains that Android 17 attacked him, and said that Dr. Gero and Dr. Myuu have demanded that Goku come to hell through the black hole and fight them, or else they will resurrect Cell and Frieza and send them to earth. A reporter on TV says that there are mysterious monsters destroying the city, and they recognize the monsters as everyone Goku has defeated over the years. Goku decides to go to hell and fight. Down in hell, Dr. Gero and Dr. Myuu explain that they created a replica of the Android 17 on earth, but altered both of their programming to make them completely loyal. When these two androids fuse together, the resulting Super Android 17 will have unbelievable power. When Goku arrives in hell, Dr. Gero and Dr. Myuu flee, and close up the hole connecting earth and hell, trapping Goku inside. Cell and Frieza show up, and now that he's trapped in hell, he has no choice but to fight them.

Goku begins his fight with Frieza and Cell, and it is clear that Goku is far stronger than both of them combined. He kills both of them quickly, but they come back to life. Since they are already dead, Goku can never kill them. At some point in the fight Frieza moves out of the way to allow Cell to use Solar Flare. Blinded, Goku is unaware that Cell tries to absorb him. Once Cell absorbed Goku, he became very powerful, however he lost the power due to Goku escaping back through Cell's tail. Cell and Frieza then tried a new method, which trapped Goku in a cage of energy, and force him down into the depths of hell. There, he is tortured in various ways, finally being trapped in a block of ice. Back on earth, Gohan is fighting General Rilldo, and Rilldo hits him with his metal beam, turning Gohan's right arm into metal. Trunks and Goten are exterminating Saibamen, while Vegeta deals with the new Android 17. The original 17 locates Krillin, Marron, and Android 18. He hypnotizes her, and tells her to join him.

Android 17 kills Krillin, which brings 18 to her senses. She fights, but loses, and 17 heads off to find his counterpart. Down in hell, Goku's body heat weakens the ice enough for him to break it, and once he's out, he uses the freezing machine on Frieza and Cell and then accidentally shatters them. Back on earth, the two 17's find each other and merge together, forming Super Android 17. Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, Goten, and Majuub all try to attack him, but their efforts are useless. 17 takes each of them down with a single punch. Watching this from hell, Goku asks King Yemma if he can bring him to earth, but it is beyond Yemma's power. Piccolo, however, has a plan, and requests that King Yemma send him to hell; when King Yemma refuses, Piccolo convinces him that he made a mistake by wreaking havoc with numerous energy waves, and is sent to hell.

Piccolo's plan is to replicate the method that the two Android 17's used to escape from hell. He telepathically communicates his plan with Dende. They try to send an energy blast to each other at the same time. After several tries, they finally hit at the exact same moment, and another black hole opens up. Piccolo, unfortunately, cannot follow Goku back to Earth, as he must remain perfectly still for the portal to remain open, but assures Goku that it will be all right; he is willing to spend eternity in hell to help his old friend. Accepting, Goku returns to Earth, while Piccolo decides to get in some "target practice" with some of the old villains. Meanwhile, Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, Goten, and Majuub are losing badly to Super Android 17. The Android turns on Dr. Gero, because Dr. Myuu programmed the android to only take commands from him. With Gero out of the picture, he tells 17 to finish them all off. Just as he's about to blast Vegeta, Goku arrives and pushes him out of the way, and turns his attention to Super 17.

Goku and Super Android 17 begin to fight. The battle is clearly in 17's favor, as Myuu has programmed knowledge of all of Goku's techniques and abilities into him; however, Goku transforms to Super Saiyan 4, which Myuu has never seen. He hits 17 with hundreds of energy blasts, but none of them seem to hurt the android. He tries a Kamehameha wave, but 17 makes no effort to get out of the way, and Goku realizes that 17 is absorbing the energy, just like Android 19 did. Now that he can't use any energy blasts, Goku tries to use Instant Transmission to sneak up on 17, but the android can sense where he is going to appear. With none of Goku's tactics working, Super Android 17 conjures a powerful energy ball to finish him off.

While 17 is distracted by making his energy ball, Goku sneaks up from behind and grabs him. He tries to blow them both up, but when the smoke clears, both of them remain alive. 17 had put up a shield to protect himself, but it also protected Goku just enough to keep him alive. Once again, he gathers energy for his final attack, but suddenly 18 shows up. Her taunts cause 17 to turn and destroy Dr. Myuu. He turns back to kill Goku, but before he can, 18 starts firing energy blasts at him. While 17 is absorbing the blasts, Goku realizes that he is unable to move while absorbing energy and thus vulnerable, and he quickly attacks, punching a hole through him. He finishes 17 off with a Kamehameha wave. Bulma arrives, saying that the earth is incredibly unstable because of the interdimensional portals that 17 and Piccolo opened up. They gather the Dragon Balls to fix this, only to find that they are all cracked. When they call Shenron, black smoke issues from them, and a mysterious, powerful, but evil new dragon emerges.

June 11, 1997 September 4, 2004
The new dragon turns out to be pure evil. He sucks up the Dragon Balls and then splits into seven more dragons, which then fly away. Elder Kai explains that each time the Dragon Balls are used, they store negative energy, and that energy takes 100 years to dissipate. The reason the balls scatter after they're used is to give them time to release their negative energy. But because Bulma invented the dragon radar, they were able to find them very quickly and summon Shenron many times. This overuse caused the balls to overload themselves with negative energy, and that energy spawned the Shadow Dragons. All those present blame Bulma for this, but she quickly places the blame on Goku, stating that she could never have found them without his help. In any event, Goku, feeling guilty for having used the Dragon Balls so often, goes off to slay the dragons, as they will potentially destroy the universe if left unchecked. Goku follows the destructive path left by the dragons, and Pan follows him, bringing Giru along to use the dragon radar. They find the two-star dragon destroying a village.

But Pan's attacks seem to do less and less, until the dragon is able to overpower her. Goku tries to transform into a Super Saiyan, but can't do it. The dragon explains that his pollution causes everything to be poisonous, which is why Pan's strength decreased, and why Goku can't power up. He also reveals that he was created when Goku wished to revive Bora, father of his old friend Upa, after he was killed by Mercenary Tao, horrifying Goku with the fact that he was indeed responsible for the birth of the Shadow Dragons. The dragon beats them up, and then throws them into the lake. Giru, who is unaffected by the poison, goes underwater and pulls them to an uninfected part of the lake. There is a spring here that is feeding in pure water from underground, and Goku blasts the hole, flooding the lake with clean water. With their powers rejuvenated, Goku and Pan destroy the dragon and recover the two-star ball, which returns to its original form.

Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan 4 and tries to blast the dragon, but the slime bounces his attack back at him. The dragon traps Goku and Pan in the slime, which begins to electrocute them. It begins to rain, causing the dragon to short circuit and explode.

This dragon can put up energy shields, so Goku can't hit her. He tries to use a Kamehameha wave, but the dragon deflects it. The dragon then creates a giant whirlwind, which pins Goku against a cliff. Pan creates her first Kamehameha wave and blasts it at the dragon, which gives Goku time to deal the finishing blow. They collect the six-star ball and continue their journey.

The dragon creates a massive earthquake, but Pan and Goku, with the help of Super Saiyan 4, are able to prevent the city from being damaged. The dragon gets angry at them and, after revealing that he was created by the wish to revive all innocents killed by Majin Vegeta on the day of Majin Buu's resurrection, tries to fight, but ends up hitting himself with his own attack. Goku prepares to deal the final blow, but the dragon dies on its own. Goku powers down and Pan catches the seven-star ball, only to find that it still has cracks in it. The ball begins to glow, and Pan gets sucked into it. The dragon reveals that he was using a mole's body, which is why he was so weak, and now he's using Pan's body.

The dust clears, and the dragon is still alive. Goku couldn't bring himself to put all of his energy into the blast. The dragon turns the tide of the fight, and appears to knock Goku out.

The sun seems unusually hot, and they discover that it is because of the four-star dragon, Nuova Shenron, who reveals that he was created when the original King Piccolo wished to regain his youth and full power. He can raise his body temperature to even greater levels than the surface of the sun, which makes punching him out of the question. Goku is forced to run from the dragon. He realizes that he can still use energy waves, so he begins attacking the dragon. After a while, the dragon gets tired of playing around, and he changes into his final form. Goku follows suit, and transforms into a Super Saiyan 4.

Vegeta tries to leave for the fight, but Bulma convinces him to stay. She says that she's working on something that will help him. While she's preparing the device, Vegeta reminisces about Goku; everything from their first fight, to Goku's fight with Frieza, to their fight when he was Majin Vegeta, to their fight with Kid Buu. Bulma explains that after Goku was bombarded with the earth's Blutz Waves on the Tuffle planet, he transformed into an Oozaru. Pan helped him become conscious of himself, and this made him transform again into the final Super Saiyan 4 stage. Since Vegeta is already conscious of himself as an Oozaru, he just needs to be bombarded with Blutz Waves to become a Super Saiyan 4. He wasn't able to do it on the Tuffle planet because he wasn't a pure Saiyan then, since Baby was possessing him. To create these Blutz Waves, Bulma has built the same machine that she built for Baby on the Tuffle planet.

Goku and Nuova, the four-star dragon, begin to fight. Goku catches Nuova off guard, but grants him a freebie because Nuova spared Pan's life at Goku's request when he could have easily destroyed her. Nuova says that he doesn't harm innocent and helpless people. As they continue to fight, a beam comes out of nowhere and hits Goku's arm, freezing it. It came from Eis Shenron, the three-star dragon, and Nuova's twin brother, who was (as revealed in Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files) brought forth by the wish that erased the memories of Majin Buu from everyone on Earth excluding the Z Fighters and their friends. Eis has taken the Dragon Balls from Pan, and he gives them to Nuova. He then freezes the rest of Goku. Eis commands Nova to finish Goku off, but Nuova refuses because Goku can't defend himself. Eis beats up Nuova, and reissues his command. Nuova appears to obey, but his attack just melts the ice. Goku thanks Nuova, and promises to beat Eis in ten seconds.

Goku is able to quickly land a devastating punch, which finishes off the three-star dragon. Nuova hands Goku special eye drops to cure his blindness, but they are shot out of his hand. It was the one-star dragon, Syn Shenron, who was created (also revealed in Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files) by the wish that revived all victims of Frieza and his men. He quickly destroys Nuova, leaving only a blind Goku to fight him. An enraged and disgusted Goku criticizes him for killing one of his own kind, but Syn merely reminds him that Goku is responsible for the birth of all Shadow Dragons because he overused the Dragon Balls. Undaunted, Goku states that he always used the Dragon Balls for the good of the Earth and never used them selfishly even once, and tries to fight, but even when he lands a Kamehameha wave, he isn't able to do any damage to the one-star dragon.

While Majuub tries to hold off the dragon, Gohan, Goten, and Trunks give all of their power to Goku.

Omega Shenron realizes that Goku and Vegeta have a plan, so he rushes in to stop them. Gohan, Goten, and Trunks cut him off to buy their fathers some time. While they hold Omega Shenron off, Goku and Vegeta fuse. They are now Gogeta, and are far more powerful than Omega Shenron. His punches are too fast even for the dragon to see. But instead of quickly finishing the job, Gogeta toys with Omega Shenron. Furious, the dragon unleashes all of the Dragon Balls' negative energy in one massive attack. Gogeta redirects the ball easily away from the earth, and the negative energy that was enveloping the earth dissipates. Gogeta then hits Omega Shenron with a Big Bang Kamehameha x100, but it doesn't quite kill him. Before Gogeta can finish him off, he splits in two again, their immense power having cut the normal fusion time in half. Six of the balls have been dislodged from the dragon's body, and before he can suck them all back up, Goku grabs the four-star ball.

To prevent Omega Shenron from eating the four-star ball and powering up completely, Goku eats it. Then he and Vegeta attempt to fuse again, but this time Omega Shenron knows what fusion is, and stops them. Goku and Vegeta try to fuse over and over again, but Omega Shenron stops them every time. He's too fast and powerful to avoid long enough to fuse. Then Goku and Vegeta use the after-image technique, which distracts Omega Shenron long enough for them to do the fusion dance. However, the dance doesn't work for some reason. Knowing that it won't work again, Omega Shenron lets them try one more time. This time, Goku reverts to his child self. Because he's been fighting longer than Vegeta, he is out of power, and therefore can't fuse. Suddenly, the four-star ball appears on Goku's forehead.

The four-star ball flies out of his forehead and becomes Nuova, the four-star dragon. Nuova is no longer on Goku's side, since he was infected with Omega Shenron's negative energy after the dragon ate the ball. Nuova kicks Vegeta aside, and conjures a massive beam. Goku creates a Kamehameha wave, and both he and Nuova turn and fire at Omega Shenron. After being infected with Omega's negative energy, Nuova was flooded with positive energy while inside Goku. Nuova then grabs Omega and encases the two of them in flames. The ball of fire erupts, and it seems that Omega has been destroyed. But when the smoke clears, only Omega is left. Right before the explosion, Omega took cover inside of Nuova's heat-resistant body. Now Omega Shenron is at full power because he has all seven Dragon Balls inside him.

Vegeta loses power as well, and reverts back to his base state. This time, Omega Shenron is through playing games. He creates a giant energy ball and hurls it at the earth. Vegeta prepares to attack it, but Goku knocks him aside and tries to push it back. After a long struggle, Omega's power is too much, and the ball explodes. Goku prevented the earth from blowing up, but seemingly died in the blast. Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, and Goten all attack Omega Shenron, but are quickly beaten. Omega then once again floods the Earth with negative energy, and Vegeta, seeking to avenge Goku's apparent death, charges only to be defeated quickly. Before losing consciousness, Vegeta assures him that he hasn't won yet, which proves true as a still-living Goku rises from the crater holding a Spirit Bomb. He has gathered all the energy from the earth, but it's not enough. He tells King Kai to ask the entire universe for power. During this time, Omega repeatedly blasts Goku, but does no harm. Energy from all over the universe gathers on earth, and the Spirit Bomb completes itself. Omega, now fearing for his life, swallows his pride and pleads for mercy, but Goku refuses to listen and hits him with the Spirit Bomb, destroying him. After the explosion, the others find Goku lying unconscious with the Dragon Balls scattered around him. Finally, Shenron himself appears.

Shenron heals Goku, and explains that he cannot allow the Dragon Balls to be overused again, so he is leaving the earth, and taking the balls with him, planning to return when the people of Earth learn to solve their own problems without using the balls. However, he allows one more wish at Goku's request, which is to repair all damage done to the Earth since the gateway to Hell was opened up by Android 17, as well as revive all the innocent people that the villains killed. Just before Shenron leaves, he calls for Goku to accompany him. Goku entrusts Vegeta to take his place as Earth's savior, and as they fly away, Bulma reminisces about her time with Goku. Pan picks up Goku's clothes that were left behind, and Vegeta tells her to treasure them dearly. Goku stops by Kame House to say goodbye to Master Roshi and Krillin, who has been revived. He also stops in hell to say goodbye to Piccolo, and tells him that he will one day get back into Heaven. As he lies on the back of Shenron, the seven Dragon Balls become one with his body, and he becomes one with Shenron. 100 years later, Vegeta Jr. and Goku Jr., Pan's grandson, are fighting in the junior division championship at the World Martial Arts Tournament. Goku Jr. is wearing Goku's clothes that Pan picked up many years ago. Pan looks down and sees the now-adult Goku watching the fight, but when she goes down to find him, he's not there anymore; Pan merely assumes that she was imagining things. As Goku exits the stadium, he flashes back to many of the events that shaped his past, from his adoption by Grandpa Gohan to Baby's defeat. This shows how from training with Shenron, Goku was able to live in peace with his family and friends in both the afterlife and the real world. With his Power Pole in hand, Goku flies off on the Flying Nimbus into the distance and says "Til we meet again, guys."
