"The Eight Winners are Determined!!" (8勝者決定!!, Hasshōsha Kettei!!; Viz "The 8 Finalists") is the one hundred sixty-eighth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Everyone is shocked to see Taopaipai is alive, and the assassin reveals he has become a cyborg. Taopaipai urges Gokū to make it to the finals so he can kill him there, and after Gokū, Tenshinhan will be his target.

Piccolo proceeds through the preliminaries, impressing the others with his power. The entire Dragon Team, as well as Piccolo, and the mysterious young girl, have passed the preliminaries. A bespectacled man also qualifies, embarassingly defeating a masked fighter revealed to be Yajirobe.

The matches have been decided by: Tenshinhan vs. Taopaipai, Son Gokū vs. the mysterious young woman, Kuririn vs. Majunior (Piccolo), and Yamcha vs. Shen.
