"Son Gokū's Greatest Crisis!!" (孫悟空最大の危機!!, Son Gokū Saidai no Kiki!!; Viz "Goku's Greatest Crisis!") is the one hundred fifty-eighth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The battle rages on, with Gokū gaining the advantage over Piccolo in terms of sheer power. Tenshinhan begins to believe Gokū can win, however, Piccolo releases a energy beam from his eyes, damaging Gokū's knee and causing his right leg to become useless. Gokū, however, uses the Nyoibō's ability to extend, landing a punch on Piccolo and making him still angrier. During the battle, the King sees Gokū and Tenshinhan, but is urged to escape while the children fight off Piccolo. Despite his misgivings about leaving Piccolo to children, the King agrees.

Flying towards the King's Castle, Bulma, Yamcha, and Lunch find out that Gokū and Tenshinhan are still fighting Piccolo, despite the fact that they believed him to be dead. The group remembers a prophecy made by Uranai Baba, that Gokū would save the world, and this gives them hope.

Enraged, Piccolo begins to concentrate his ki, release Kikōha from the Fingertips towards Gokū. His ability to dodge is hampered, and his staff is blasted out of his hand by the energy beams. Within seconds, Piccolo releases another Ki Manipulation Wave from his palms, an energy beam, that collides with Gokū, creating a huge explosion.
