"The Two Weak Points" (ふたつの弱点, Futatsu no Jakuten) is the one hundred seventy-ninth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Tenshinhan doesn't believe Gokū's statement of finding two weaknesses to his technique, and goes to perform the same combo again. As Gokū dodges the four incoming Kikōha by leaping into the air, Tenshinhan looks into the air, only to be blinded by Gokū's surprise technique: the Taiyōken. With Tenshinhan blinded, Gokū explains this is the first weakness: because Tenshinhan's eyes are so good, once he's blinded, he can't follow Gokū. Tenshinhan believes Gokū has the same weakness, but Gokū reveals he can sense Tenshinhan's presence.

As Tenshinhan gains his sight back, Gokū hints at the second weakness: splitting into four in and of itself. Within seconds, Gokū takes out each and every body, knocking Tenshinhan out of the ring. Elaborating, Gokū explains that the Fist of Four Bodies splits everything about the user, including their power, and this was what cost Tenshinhan the match.
