"The Terror of Piccolo Daimaō!" (ピッコロ大魔王の恐怖!, Pikkoro Daimaō no Kyōfu!; Viz "Target: Tenka'ichi Budōkai"; Literally meaning "The Terror of Piccolo the Great Demon King!") is the one hundred thirty-sixth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


Gokū catches up to his target, who confusedly wonders who the boy is. Once he sees the Dragon Ball clutched in the creature's claws, Gokū angrily tells him that not only did he steal Gokū's Dragon Ball, he killed Kuririn. The creature confirms that he did indeed kill Kuririn, and Gokū angrily prepares to attack him in a rage. The creature scoffs at the idea of Gokū being able to defeat him, and easily dispatches Gokū, who complains about hunger being the reason he can't keep up.

The monster releases a Kikōha from the Mouth, destroying Gokū's Kintoun, and sending him plummeting to Earth. Chuckling to himself over the joys of killing, he flies off. Several hours pass, and Gokū's friends conclude that, if he hasn't returned, Gokū must be dead. They begin to weigh their options, and while Tenshinan asks Muten Rōshi about the Mafūba, the old master tells him that he can't remember the movie, as it was performed so long ago and happened so fast. With no other options, the group heads to Muten Rōshi's house.

Back on Piccolo's airship, the creature hands Piccolo the Dragon Ball, confirming it was where Pilaf and his group said it would be. Pleased that eternal youth will be in his grasp, Piccolo informs the creature to put up the list of the ten finalists. Seeing Kuririn on the list, he removes it, as he'd already killed him. When Gokū was found on the list, the monster confirmed he'd already killed Gokū as well. With the news that these finalists are supposedly weak, Piccolo still urges his minion to stay on his guard: one use of the Mafūba would doom him. He issues the order to kill all remaining martial arts experts, and anyone who stands in his way.

As the Pilaf Gang wonders if freeing Piccolo was such a good idea, Gokū is seen lying, unmoving, on the ground.
