Chapter Synopsis

“Mistaken you for someone else? Are you saying you are not Piccolo Daimaō?” Piccolo says that’s right. Meanwhile, Trunks, flying along with Kuririn, says there’s another tremendous ki now, someone he doesn’t know. Kuririn says it’s Piccolo, and thinks it’s awesome that they really did re-unite, making him a Super Namekian. Trunks is amazed there’s someone who could power up this much. Meanwhile, Piccolo says it’s convenient all the citizens of this town are gone, so now he can really fight. He puts out a hand and blasts the monster, causing a huge explosion. Trunks and Kuririn realize the fight is starting. When the smoke clears, a big chunk of the town has been turned into a wasteland.

The artificial humans stop their van and get out. No. 17 says the atmosphere is shaking, like a volcano erupted or something. No. 16 says in a suburb of West City, two great powers seem to be fighting. No. 17 is surprised he has a power radar, and wonders why he didn’t tell them. No. 16 bluntly responds, “Because you didn’t ask.” No. 17 says fair enough, and wonders who’s fighting who. No. 16 says he doesn’t have any data on the two, though one of them rivals both No. 17 and 18. No. 17 says his radar must be broken, another mistake of Doctor Gero’s, because there is no one in this world whose power rivals his. Then they get back in their van and drive off.

The monster is down, and Piccolo rushes at him. The monster gets up though, and swats at Piccolo, but Piccolo jumps over it, and then kicks the monster. The monster recovers and turns around, only to come face to face with Piccolo, who delivers a hard kick and sends the monster flying. Then they stop, and Piccolo thinks he may have been mistaken in thinking this was such an incredible monster. The monster says this is nothing, since he hasn’t reached his perfect form yet. Piccolo asks if his “perfect form” is what he’s been attacking humans for, and the monster says he turns life extract into energy. Piccolo demands to know who sent him to this time via the time machine. The monster says he did it himself. He had to regress to an egg in order to fit into the time machine. “Even so, it’s quite a surprise that you know about the time machine. But… I bet you don’t know about this.” The monster then cups its hands, and as it charges the attack it begins saying “Ka… me… ha… me…”

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.
