"The Mysterious Alien Warrior" (謎の異星人戦士, Nazo no Iseijin Senshi; Viz "The Mysterious Warrior From Space") is the one hundred ninety-fifth of the Dragon Ball manga.


Five years after the defeat of Piccolo, and the end of the Tenka-Ichi Budōkai, the world is at peace. A farmer is tending to his field, only to see an object descend from the sky and crash into the planet. Armed with his shotgun, he drives to the landing site, and spots a strange craft. A man steps out of the craft, complaining about the fact that the inhabitants of "this world" are still alive, and curses someone named "Kakarotto". The man advances on the farmer, using a strange device on his face, and remarking on his "power level" of only five. The farmer shoots the man, only to have the bullet caught and flung back at him, wounding him. Having detected another power in the distance, he flies off.

Piccolo senses an approaching ki, and a powerful one. Initially fearful that it could be Son Gokū, the arrival turns out to be the strange man from earlier. With the same strange device, he analyzes Piccolo, and finds that Piccolo's power level is 322; strong but paltry compared to his own. Violently, Piccolo attacks the man with a Kikōha, dealing no damage. Preparing to counterattack, Raditz detects another power level, the strongest on Earth, and tears off in that direction, leaving Piccolo frozen in fear. As he flies away, Raditz questions if "Kakarotto" has lost his pride as a Saiyan, and Kakarotto is revealed to be none other than Son Gokū.
