"A Grand Robbery Scheme" (強盗大策戦, Gōtō Dai-Sakusen; Viz "Onward to Fry-Pan…") is the tenth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


At dawn, a cautious, gun-bearing Oolong informs a now-awakened Gokū of Yamcha and Pu'ar’s trespassing in the mobile home. As the piglet regrets knocking Gokū to sleep, Bulma wakes up to become frustrated with Oolong refusing to wash her clothes like she asked, only to be informed by Gokū of the bandits' appearance the previous night. Bulma later chastises Oolong for instructing her to wear a bunny costume and orders him to drive to Fry-Pan Mountain. While the mobile home is moving, Yamcha detects them from his hideout, follows their trail, and assaults the mobile home with his Panzerfaust while riding on his Mighty Mouse driven by Pu'ar.

With the mobile home damaged, and Bulma unconscious, Yamcha confronts Gokū and Oolong with an automatic rifle and demands the Dragon Balls, much to Gokū's resistance. As Yamcha threatens to use his Wolf Fang Wind Style Fist on Gokū, the bandit is overtaken by Gokū in combat, with the young boy knocking out the bandit's tooth from his mouth, forcing the bandits to retreat yet again.

Whilst Oolong praises Gokū, Yamcha concocts another scheme to take the Dragon Balls from Gokū and friends once they've collected all seven. As Gokū and Oolong prepare to walk again, Yamcha throws a capsule to activate a car for Gokū and friends, as a means to "help" them. As they drive off, Yamcha and Pu'ar pursue them once again, with Frypan Mountain in sight.
