"Youth Restored!? Piccolo Daimaō" (若がえるか!?ピッコロ大魔王, Waka Gaeru ka!? Pikkoro Daimaō; Viz "The Demon King of Old… Restored!"; Literally meaning "Youth Restored!? Piccolo the Great Demon King") is the one hundred forty-seventh chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


Elated with his victory, Piccolo proclaims his plan for youth and calls out to the Dragon Balls. The sky begins to darken as Shenron is summoned forth, leaving a weakened Tenshinhan to watch in horror. Piccolo marvels at the sight of Shenron, but Tenshinhan, through telepathy, urgently tells Chaozu he has to make his wish before Piccolo does. The wish: destroy Piccolo Daimaō.

Shenron asks Piccolo for his wish, reminding him that he gets but a single wish. As Piccolo is about to speak, Chaozu rushes out, attempting to cry out their wish. Before he can finish, Piccolo responds quickly and kills Chaozu with a well-timed ki blast, horrifying Tenshinhan. Shenron asks again for Piccolo's wish, and Piccolo wishes to be restored to the prime of his youth. Shenron grants his wish, and Piccolo's appearance takes on that of a younger person. Having arrived at Karin's Tower, Gokū realizes from the darkened sky that Shenron was summoned.


  • Chaozu's attempt to interrupt Piccolo's wish mirrors Oolong's own attempt several years before.
  • Despite having been created by God, who resembles Piccolo (due to being his other half), Shenron made no comment towards recognizing Piccolo as the very image of his creator. Likewise, Piccolo made no remark to recognizing Shenron, and was unfamiliar with "Dragon Balls" before Pilaf's Gang introduced him to them.
