"Tenshinhan, in Anguish!" (天津飯、苦悩!, Tenshinhan, Kunō!; Viz "Tsuru-Sen'nin") is the one hundred thirty-first chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Gokū, realizing something is wrong, calls Tenshinhan out on the latter's lack of honor. Muten Rōshi himself suspects foul play on the part of Tsuru Sennin. Gokū dares Tenshinhan to attempt the same stunt again, and the two make to clash again. Tsuru Sennin orders Chaoz to use his Paralysis Technique again, and he does, restricting Gokū's movements and allowing Tenshinhan another free shot. Nearly falling out of the ring, Gokū saves himself with a timely Kamehameha, propelling himself back into the arena. After knocking Gokū down yet again, after another intervention from Chaoz, even Tenshinhan begins to notice something is amiss.

Tenshinhan, noting it was Chaoz at work, demands his fellow student stop, directly defying Tsuru Sennin's orders. Tsuru Sennin is furious, and demands Tenshinhan kill Gokū; Tenshinhan, however, states he simply wants a fair match without any interference, and that he's realized he's not a killer. Tsuru Sennin decides to kill both Gokū and Tenshinhan, ordering Chaoz to freeze them both. Chaoz refuses, and Tsuru Sennin moves to kill him as well; Rōshi, however, orders Tenshinhan to move, and attacks Tsuru Sennin with a Kamehameha. The blast collides with Tsuru Sennin, sending him flying and saving Chaoz. With Tsuru Sennin gone, Rōshi urges Gokū and Tenshinhan to continue.

Tenshinhan tells Gokū that, now that he has abandoned his own master, he has no choice but to win the tournament. As they prepare to continue, Tenshinhan declares his next attack will decide the battle.
