"Stand Firm!! Son Gokū" (ふんばれ!!孫悟空, Funbare!! Son Gokū; Viz "Piccolo Destroys Everything!") is the one hundred ninetieth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Gokū can feel the ki emanating from Piccolo, realizing he's trying to place all of his attack power into the next technique. God compels Gokū to flee with them, but Gokū is intent on remaining in the match. Releasing a Kikōhō, Tenshinhan creates a hole for his friends to hide in, and everyone makes way into it, Lunch kicking a reluctant God into their hiding spot.

Gokū braces himself for the impact, as Piccolo releases his Super Explosive Demon Wave, releasing a wave of ki that utterly decimates the Tenkaichi Budōkai grounds. Piccolo initially believes he managed to kill Gokū, however, Gokū survived. Having withstood the technique, Gokū is now confident he can win.
