"The Fated Showdown! Son Gokū versus Piccolo" (因縁の対決!悟空対ピッコロ, Innen no Taiketsu! Son Gokū Tai Pikkoro; Viz "The Fated Showdown!") is the one hundred eighty-second chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


With God removed from his body, the man known as Shen collapses. Remaining down for the ten count, the announcer declares Piccolo as the winner. The man God possessed wakes up, and is surprised to see he is in the Tenkaichi Budōkai, believing he drank too much sake. His son, however, immensely impressed with him.

Gokū demands the bottle containing God back, but Piccolo swallows it, telling Gokū the only way to free God is to kill Piccolo — which would kill God anyway. When Muten Rōshi arrives to ask what's going on, Gokū explains to everyone that the Ma Junior they see is actually Piccolo Daimaō, or more specifically, his reincarnation. He also explains that the entity who came out of Shen's body that looked like Piccolo was God, and explains what happened when God and Piccolo split from being a single being.

Rōshi concludes that Piccolo is here to get revenge for losing to Gokū three years prior, a statement Piccolo confirms when he arrives. The two step into the ring, and their match begins.
