"Confusion at the Tournament Grounds!!" (武道会場騒然!!, Budōkaijō Sōzen!!; Viz "Panic at the Tenka'ichi Budōkai!") is the one hundred eighty-sixth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Having survived the Super Kamehameha and becoming considerably enraged, Piccolo descends to the ground and declares his further intent to kill Son Gokū. As more of his features are revealed, the audience begin to recognize him, believing him to look similar to Piccolo Daimaō. Piccolo states that he is the reincarnation of the demon, which causes the crowd to flee. The Announcer remains, continuing to document the events as they unfold.

With their battle continuing, Piccolo reveals a new technique to Gokū: the Super Giant Body Technique. This technique drastically increases the demon's size, letting him tower over Son Gokū. Tenshinhan offers Gokū help after the latter takes a beating, but Gokū declines, as the tournament match is still on, and accepting help would disqualify him.
