"Piccolo Daimaō versus God" (ピッコロ大魔王対神様, Pikkoro Daimaō Tai Kamisama; Viz "Kami-Sama vs. the Demon King"; Literally meaning "Piccolo the Great Demon King versus God") is the one hundred eightieth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Former champion Tenshinhan has lost to Gokū, with the former confirming his strength can no longer even compare. The next round match begins: Ma Junior (Piccolo Junior) vs. Shen (God). Before the latter steps into the ring, he converses with Gokū, explaining that Gokū wouldn't be able to find it in his heart to kill Piccolo, as doing so would kill him as well. Instead, he, God, must do it, and that he has learned a few things from humans. Joking that he is going to fight himself, Shen makes his way to the ring.

As the match begins, Piccolo tells Shen that his goal is Gokū, and the former is merely an obstacle in his path. Shen knows this is because Gokū would interfere with Piccolo's plans, and resolves to not give the demon the opportunity. With the flick of his fingers, Shen releases a shockwave that blows Piccolo back. Demanding to know who Shen is, Piccolo goes on the offensive, but Shen counters, and the two seem even.
