"Both Sides Go All-Out" (両者真剣勝負, Ryōsha Shinken Shōbu; Viz "The Real Fight") is the one hundred eighty-fourth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The intensity of the battle begins to pick up, and Gokū and Piccolo exchange blows with new ferocity. The two get locked into a grapple, and Piccolo attacks Gokū with a Beam Eyes, only for it to be dodged and Gokū's feet to make contact with his face. Gokū vanishes, using a similar tactic he used against Kuririn three years ago, but Piccolo sees through it, elbowing the incoming Gokū in the face.

Gokū vanished yet again, however, striking Piccolo from behind with a crushing kick. Rebounding quickly, Piccolo threatens to blow Gokū away along with the ring. In a panic, Gokū attracts Piccolo's attention by leaping into the air. With another Shockwave, Gokū deflects the blast enough that it only grazes him, and the ki blast explodes off in the horizon. With a Kamehameha Boost, Gokū propels himself through the air to avoid a ring out.

Back in the ring and furious, Gokū declares his trump card: the Super Kamehameha.
