"The 10 Count" (10カウント, Ten Kaunto) is the one hundred ninety-first chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Confident that the explosion was Piccolo's ace in the hole, Gokū firmly believes he can win. Charging his own ki, he launches a physical assault on Piccolo, culminating in a crushing blow to the stomach that stuns the demon. Jumping into the air, Gokū floats above the arena, before releasing another Super Kamehameha directly down towards Piccolo, creating a huge explosion and a giant crater. Landing, Gokū asks the announcer to begin the ten count.

Initially believing he's dead, the fact that God is still alive proves Piccolo is not, and the count begins. As the count reaches a climax, everyone begins to join in, believing their hero to have won; Piccolo, however, leaps up at the last literal second, releasing a Kikōha from the Mouth towards Goku, piercing his shoulder and leaving a gaping wound.
