"The Tenka-Ichi Budōkai's Climax!!" (天下一武道会の頂点!!, Tenka-Ichi Budōkai no Chōten!!; Viz "The Fate of the Strongest"; Literally meaning "The Number One Under the Heavens Martial Arts Gathering's Climax!!") is the one hundred ninety-third chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The Kikōha collides into the arena, creating a gigantic explosion along with a large crater. Piccolo descends, seeing nothing left in the crater but smoke and ash, declares his victory over Son Gokū. With Gokū out of the picture, Piccolo realizes he's free to take over the world as he's always wanted, and tells Gokū's friends he'll kill them next.

Kuririn and Tenshinhan, however, can see a figure in the distance: Son Gokū, who reveals he can actually fly. Gokū collides with Piccolo in a powerful headbutt, which serves as all Gokū needs to knock Piccolo out of the ring. Winning by ring-out, Gokū is proclaimed the new Tenka-Ichi Budōkai Champion.
