"Even Karin-sama is Worried" (カリン様もなやむ, Karin-sama mo Nayamu; Viz "Karin's Quandary") is the one hundred fiftieth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


With the King's guard and pilot trembling in fear, Piccolo Daimaō kicks the blast shield off the aircraft declaring that the King of the World is a coward. When asked what he wanted, he said he's their new King, causing the bodyguard to open fire to no effect on Piccolo. Noticing the ignorance of the man, he grabs him by his head and drops him off the aircraft to his death. Asked again what he desired, the Demon King replied that he's the new King and he wanted the King to inform the world of this. Refusing to such, Piccolo counted on that and begins charging his Ki. With a wave of his hand, a bright flash of light and a thunderous shockwave shakes the aircraft; shortly afterwards, the King is horrified to see the city was erased, leaving nothing but a crater behind. Declaring that he could destroy the world if he wanted, the anthromorphic dog relents, giving way to a victorious cackle to the Demon King's success. 

Having reached Karin's home, Yajirobe collapses to breathe heavily from the journey, much to Karin's amazement to have accomplished this with Gokū on his back. As the young martial artist tries to explain the situation to Karin he replies that he knows already and that he was able to tell what was going on from above. Despite his surprise, he asks him readily to be trained but is given a Senzu to heal him. Exasperated at the sight of what a Senzu was, Yajirobe flew into a rage as he grasps a giant jar of Senzu and eats a whole handful. Much to Gokū's dismay he becomes bloated and groans out loud as the young boy explains that any ordinary bean can fill a man for ten days.

Feeling rejuvenated from the bean's magic, Gokū again asks Karin to train him to which he replies much to the youngster's awareness that he was surpassed by the student in strength. Saying that Piccolo is unmatched in power and that no one could beat him, even adding that Rōshi was killed by him. About to fly in a rage at hearing this news, Karin narrowly stops him from leaving saying that him having no problem with dying could be helpful in trying a mysterious item called the Chōshinsui.
