Chapter Synopsis

Tao Pai-pai keeps bragging, and Goku tells him to quit yapping and come on. After a little more talking, Tao Pai-pai comes at Goku, but Goku blocks all of his attacks, and kicks Tao Pai-pai in the face. Tao Pai-pai comes at him again, but Goku jumps up, so Tao Pai-pai jumps in the air, too, and punches Goku towards the tower. Goku kicks off of it, and hits Tao Pai-pai with a punch of his own. Goku kicks off the ground, then kicks Tao Pai-pai headfirst into the ground.

Tao Pai-pai comes back up, his clothes a bit tattered, and pulls off his shirt. He says he was going easy on him, and fires off a Dodonpa, but Goku stands to catch it this time. Goku gets pushed back a few yards, and other than his hands being a little sore, he’s fine this time. Tao Pai-pai is in shock, and Goku says that his Kamehameha was ineffective last time, but now it’s Tao Pai-pai’s attack that doesn’t work.

Upa’s happy with the situation, and Tao Pai-pai pulls a capsule from his pants. Out pops a sword and he starts swiping at Goku with it, who is just barely able to back out of the way. Tao Pai-pai slices through a tree that Goku’s hanging onto, and thinks it was great to use his sword. Upa hops off the cloud and runs into his teepee and throws Goku his Nyoi-Bō to even the score. Goku catches it mid-air, while avoiding Tao Pai-pai’s swipes, and lands on the ground. Tao Pai-pai comes at him, but one whack from the Nyoi-Bō is enough to cut the sword in half. Goku throws Nyoi-Bō aside and says he’ll defeat him with his bare hands.

Chapter Notes

  • Each issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump features short comments from the various series’ authors, giving fans a brief insight into their current thoughts, ranging from series-related announcements to trivial happenings in their personal lives. Akira Toriyama’s comments from this issue were:

    ヤギも飼ってみたいけど親父の盆栽を食べてしまうので飼えない。とても残念。<明>

    I wanna try raising a goat, but it would probably eat my dad’s Bonsai trees, so I guess that’s a no-go. It’s too bad. <Akira>

Page Breakdown

The majority of the Dragon Ball series was drawn in black and white, but chapters were occasionally published with color pages. This breakdown notes how many full-color, limited-color, and black-and-white pages appeared in this chapter. As the tankōbon volumes were not released with these colors intact, any color pages shown are taken from the kanzenban release.
