Episdode Number: Episode 230
Title: Super Saiyan 3?!
Summary Writer: Destroyer X
Website: Destroyer X Network v4.0

The episode began with Babidi being uninterested in Goku's claim in going beyond an ascended Super Saiyan and ordered Majin Buu to destroy Goku so they could
continue to West City. Goku thought to himself that it's hard to believe Buu could be so powerful by the way he acted, but Vegeta probably thought otherwise.  At Kami's Lookout, everyone was still watching the battle through Babidi's mind projection. Bulma
commented that Trunks should be at Capsule Corp. by now, but Piccolo stated that he wasn't there yet.

The next scene showed Trunks stopping in midair. Goku wondered why Trunks stopped and said that he didn't want to go beyond the second level if he didn't have to. Meanwhile, Trunks sensed an enormous power and wondered if he should help, but after Goku yelled for him to stop goofing off and get the radar, Trunks continued his journey to Capsule Corp., leaving Babidi wondering who Goku was talking to and what he's talking about with the "radar nonsense". Goku said that it wasn't his problem. However, Babidi dismissed it as Goku hallucinating.

When Goku fazed out of Super Saiyan, Buu asked whether or not they're still going to play. Goku said they'll get to it once he's taught them a thing or two about Super Saiyans. Babidi still seemed uninterested.  Before powering up, Goku explained that he was currently in his normal state. Then, Goku powered up to a Super Saiyan and explained that. After that, he powered up to the next level. Goku said that his current form is a Super Saiyan that has ascended past a Super Saiyan, also called a Super Saiyan 2. Babidi said that changing his hair was a useless transformation.

Back at the Lookout, Piccolo wondered if Goku's really found way to surpass Super Saiyan 2, and Krillin commented that Goku must be bluffing. Then, Goku started screaming as he raised his power level. At the Lookout, Piccolo, Goten, and Krillin could sense Goku's power level rising. At the Grand Kai's planet, King Kai had been watching everything on Earth. He told Goku to stop, commenting that if he went beyond Super Saiyan 2, he would drain away his time he had on Earth. Back at the battlefield, Buu looked at Goku with awe while Babidi appeared to be afraid.

At the Lookout, everything started to shake. Piccolo wondered how Goku was generating that much power.  Trunks once again stopped and commented that Goku was
generating more power than before how but continued to Capsule Corp. so he wouldn't be yelled at again. As Goku continued to power up, his immense power was affecting the climate around the world. The wind started to blow heavily and the Earth was shaking as well. Meanwhile, something started to happen to Goku. His hair slowly grew longer. The immense power that he generated was slowing blowing Babidi away from him. Back at Grand Kai's planet, King Kai was pleading for Goku to stop.

At a nearby city, the glass of office buildings and street signs started breaking. Televisions sets were exploding due to Goku's high energy output. From a mountain area, Tien and Chiaoutzu also noticed Goku's power. Tien commented that if felt like the planet was shaking apart and Goku would destroy the world if he didn't stop. Back at the site of the World Martial Arts Tournament, Mr. Satan was busy dodging falling weights as the ground shook.

With a mighty scream, Goku let his power explode as he pushed his energy level to the maximum in a brilliant flash of light. Babidi had to shield his eyes to prevent himself from being blinded by the immense light, but when he uncovered his eyes, he gasped as he saw what Goku was now. Goku was no longer the man he was. His orange gi shimmered with a tremendous aura of power. His hair had grown all the way to his buttocks, and the hair on his eyebrows were gone.  Meanwhile, Piccolo, Goten, Krillin, and Trunks could sense the immense power that Goku was emitting.  Babidi was still gasping as he started to fear Goku.  He apolgized for the time it took to reach this level. He called his current form a Super Saiyan 3.

While Babidi was still in shock, Buu looked at Goku with amazement. At Kami's Lookout, Master Roshi was commenting about Super Saiyan 3, and at the Supreme Kai's planet, Gohan, Supreme Kai, and Kibito were able to sense Goku's power. Kibito said that it was impossible to feel Goku's power from the Other World.  Back at the battlefield, Babidi looked on with anger.  As Majin Buu smiled, he said that he's not scared, and Goku's long hair made him look funny. Babidi agreed with Buu and commented that his current form was ridiculous. Then, Babidi said that Goku's in need of a haircut. However, Goku welcomed the challenge.  Babidi thought that this battle was something that the whole planet should see. Thinking to himself, Goku said that Trunks should hurry.

Meanwhile, Trunks finally made it to Capsule Corp. However, his grandma started asking him if he wanted anything to eat. Ignoring her questions, he asked Dr. Briefs where the Dragon Radar was kept, but Dr. Briefs didn't remember where it was last kept at. Back at the battlefield, Goku started to pummel Majin Buu with ease with Babidi looking on. While Goten commented that no one could beat his dad, Piccolo commented that the chances of Goku stopping Buu by himself is still slim. Back on Earth, people were watching the battle with their minds. At this point, Goku threw Buu into an office building, completely destroying it, but Buu recovered and flew back to Goku.

Buu started to fire mulitple energy blasts at Goku, but Goku simply swatted them away, but it left Babidi dodging all of the blasts Goku was swatting away.  Babidi told him to finish off Goku and stop showing off. Buu stretched his arm out and hit Goku in the face, but Goku was unharmed. This just left the two combatants smiling at each other. Back on the Grand
Kai's planet, King Kai kept pleading for Goku to stop or he'll use up his remaining time on Earth. Then he wouldn't be able to teach Goten and Trunks the Fusion technique.

The battle intensified as Buu and Goku kept matching each other move for move. When they stopped, Buu commented that he's having fun, and Goku agreed.  However, Babidi barked at Buu to attack. When Buu started to become agitated, Babidi threatened to seal him away, but Buu told him to be quiet. While Babidi griped about not being treated with respect, Goku
noticd that Trunks didn't leave Capsule Corp. yet and told him to hurry. However, Babidi noticed that Goku was communicating with Trunks. Meanwhile, Trunks and Dr. Briefs continued their search for the Dragon Radar.

Since Trunks didn't leave West City yet, Goku continued to stall for time by attacking Majin Buu some more. The episode ended as Goku continued to pummel Buu while Trunks continued looking for the Dragon Radar.
