"Rabbit Ears" (ウサギの耳, Usagi no Mimi; Viz "One Goal, One Enemy") is the sixteenth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


As Oolong, Bulma and Gokū head to the west to find the last Dragon Ball, while unbeknownst to them being followed by Yamcha and Pu'ar, the vehicle they're using is low on fuel. They settle at a town, where Oolong claims they'll be able to refill the tank in the vehicle.

At the town, Gokū is perplexed as to why the residents of the town are afraid of Bulma, with this fear allowing the Dragon Team refill their vehicle and shop for capsules free of charge. While Yamcha and Pu'ar spy from afar, two men with rabbit ears just like Bulma's further inject fear into the atmosphere while patrolling the town. Whilst Bulma shops for new clothes, she unintentionally draws the anger of the merchant for wearing bunny ears without being part of the Rabbit Gang.

While Bulma ponders why such an accessory can cause so much panic to come forth to a town, the two men threaten to take Bulma with them, though not before they oppress other citizens of the town. Gokū then dominates the Rabbit Gang in combat on Bulma's request, forcing the one of the two men to call upon their boss, which only accelerates the tangible distress in the air for the residents, causing them all to flee.
