"Kuririn versus Ma Junior" (クリリン対マジュニア, Kuririn Tai Ma Junia; Viz "Kuririn vs. Demon Junior"; Literally meaning "Kuririn versus Demon Junior") is the one hundred seventy-second chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Kuririn and Piccolo, the latter under the alias "Ma Junior", begin their battle. Kuririn unveils a new technique, the Tracking Kikōha, which followed Piccolo even after his dodge. The demon destroys the ki blast with his Beam Eyes, however, Kuririn cleverly used the diversion to catch Piccolo off his guard. Pushing Piccolo back, Kuririn presses his assault, only for Piccolo to retaliate, nearly knocking Kuririn out of the ring.

Kuririn reveals he's learned the Air Dance Technique, and can fly, just like Piccolo and Tenshinhan. Piccolo commends Kuririn for his strength, and offers to show even more of his own true power, which Kuririn and Gokū know is not a bluff.
