"Son Gokū's Final Gamble!!" (孫悟空最後の賭け!!, Son Gokū Saigo no Kake!!; Viz "Goku's Final Gamble") is the one hundred sixtieth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


With Tenshinhan held captive by Piccolo, Gokū finds himself in a pinch. Tenshinhan urges Gokū to kill Piccolo, and not to worry about him; in an attempt to quiet him, Piccolo applies pressure to Tenshinhan's skull. Piccolo picks up a rock, and blows it towards Gokū, breaking the boy's left arm. Regardless, Gokū decides to kill Piccolo as he'd simply kill them whether the boy attacked or no, and believed he could resurrect Tenshinhan with the Dragon Balls. Piccolo tells Gokū that he killed Shenron, and with another stone, breaks Gokū's left leg, causing the boy to fall to the ground, unable to move.

Piccolo discards Tenshinhan and flies into the air, determined to land the finishing blow on Gokū, However, Gokū still has one working arm, and releases a powerful Kikōha towards the ground, propelling him into the air towards Piccolo. With the imprint of a Giant Monkey behind him, Gokū races towards Piccolo.
