"The Pair's Final Tactics!!" (両者最後の戦術！！, Ryōsha Saigo no Senjutsu!!; Viz "Desperation Move") is the one hundred thirty-third chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
Tenshinhan issues the warning to Gokū once again that he must dodge the incoming attack, an assertion Muten Rōshi validates in earnest. Tenshinhan begins to charge his ki, forming a sphere within his hands; Kuririn himself notes that he can see a light. Tenshinhan is carefully controlling his power, as he doesn't want to use all of his energy and be exhausted if Gokū makes a counterattack. Focusing directly on the ring, Tenshinhan releases a devastating Kikōhō.
The attack releases with such force that everyone is impacted; when the attack clears, the ring has been completely destroyed, leaving a crater so deep the bottom isn't visible. It seemed Gokū had been taken out with the ring, but it was revealed he leaped into the air to safety at the last second. Freefalling, the moment Gokū touches the ground, he would ring out, and Tenshinhan's victory would be guaranteed. Gokū begins to prepare a Kamehameha, in spite of the fact that Tenshinhan can counter the technique. Turning around, Gokū releases the blast and uses the forward momentum to rocket towards Tenshinhan.
