"Yajirobe's Prey" (ヤジロベーの獲物, Yajirobei no Emono) is the one hundred thirty-ninth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


Cymbal continues to interrogate Yajirobe and Gokū about the location of the Dragon Ball, threatening to kill them if they don't do as he asked.  It isn't until Piccolo Daimaō's son sees the necklace wrapped around the obese man's neck does he realize that he's wearing a Dragon Ball, asking to hand over the object right away. Realizing that he's an ally of Kuririn's killer, Gokū is determined to challenge Cymbal but Yajirobe feels obligated to settle the score Piccolo's son made with him. Not agreeing easily, they settle their feud over a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors while Cymbal looks on in incredulous awe. Winning the game, Yajirobe steps up to challenge an eager Cymbal to do battle. 

Attacking first, Yajrobe swung fast and hard, but missed a rapidly evading Cymbal. In mid-jump, the Dragonoid tail whipped the fat man in the chin, followed by a fast kick and punch combo to send him reeling back. Having fallen flat on his face, the Demon believes he's already dead but is soon proven wrong when a slightly scuffed Yajirobe complains as he stands up an dusts himself off. While Gokū chuckles with amusement, Cymbal steels himself for the fight to continue. Landing a surprise kick to Cymbal, Yajirobe has to evade bolts of lightning that are shot like bullets from an angry Cymbal. Offering his help, Yajirobe decline's Gokū's aid as he grasps the hilt of his sword, ready to end the fight. Leaping forward, Yajirobe avoids Cymbal's shots just in time to get a single sword stroke, bifuricating the Dragonoid in half. 

Meanwhile, aboard Pilaf's airship, Piccolo Daimaiō reels in surprise as he feels his child's life force vanish. While his other son tries to comfort him, the Demon King is still in shock anyone is capable of besting his spawn. He cries out for vengeance for what has happened with an angry expression contorting on his wrinkled face. 

Back where Yajirobe and Gokū were, the prior had diced up Cymbal before placing him on a spit to cook over a fire. Taking a slice of cooked meat, he tells Gokū he isn't sharing to which the young boy says he doesn't want any. Eating it, he soon takes a liking to the cooked Dragonoid and devours it whole down to the bone. Asking who the kid's name is, he calls Gokū's name weird before introducing himself to him unceremoniously as he gnaws on a toothpick.
