The episode starts off with Goku ,in normal form (because super saiyan 3 was making him lose to much power),making the Spirit Bomb. Goku throws it, but Kid Buu bounces it back. Vegeta tells Hurcule to tell the people of Earth to lend more energy, but Hurcule tells him that if they lend more energy, they will die. Vegeta replies that they can be wished back with the dragonballs. This gives him an idea. He tells Dende to wish back Goku's strength. Dende wishes for this and Goku has his strength back. He goes Super Saiyan 2 and, with all his might, destroys Majin Buu. - jcundiff94553


This is an englished dubbed episode. The episode is called SPIRIT BOMB TRIUMPHANT. This is the final episode with Buu in it.

After all the people on Earth give Goku their energy, Goku throws the Spirit Bomb, but Buu bounces it back. Vegeta tells Hurcule to get the people of Earth to lend Goku more energy for the Spirit Bomb. Hurcule tells Vegeta that if they lend more energy they will die. Vegeta says they can be brought back to life with the dragon balls. This gives him an idea. They can use the dragon balls to wish back Goku's strength. They wish just that and Goku gets enough strength to toss it back. He goes Super Saiyan and toss's it basck at Buu and it destroy's him - Jordan C.

Dragonball Z
English Dubbed
Episode 271: Spirit Bomb Triumphant

Summary: Goku has gathered enough power from the people from Earth and
launches the Spirit bomb at Buu, but Buu managed to catch it and it fighting
it. After a couple of minutes Goku is losing power. Vegeta tells Hercule
to make the people of Earth give more energy or Goku will fail, but King
Kai( North Kai) says if the people of Earth give any more energy they will
die, and Hercule refuses to do it. Vegeta then realizes that he has one
more wish left to use.

He tells Dende to ask the dragon to restore Goku's power. Dende tells Goku
that he is back to full power, Goku senses this and transforms into a Super
Sayian, then sends the Spirit Bomb back at Buu, finishing him off once and
for all. The episode ends with a very badly hurt Vegeta and a battered Goku
sticking their thumbs up at each other in victory, and laughing.
