"The World's Greatest Super Battle!!" (天下一のスーパーバトル！！, Tenka-Ichi no Sūpā Batoru!!; Viz "Goku vs. Tenshinhan") is the one hundred twenty-eighth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
Before the battle begins, Muten Rōshi sneaks back into the competitors wings, and urges Kuririn to play close attention to the match that unfolds. Tsuru Sennin states his confidence that Tenshinhan will win, as he has to win to avenge Taopaipai. The battle between the schools begin, and Gokū and Tenshinhan have a fierce exchange of blows. The two competitors seem relatively equal, but Tenshinhan's ability to fly, and use of the Dodonpa give him a slight advantage.
Gokū attempts his vanishing act once again, but Tenshinhan's three eyes allow him to perceive Gokū's location, like he had during Gokū and Kuririn's match, and he counterattacks. He attacks with a furious combo, slamming Gokū into the wall, and unleashing a flurry of blows that Muten Rōshi equates to machine gun fire. Dangling Gokū by the collar, Tenshinhan prepares to levy the final blow.
