"Kakarotto" (カカロッ) is the one hundred ninety-sixth of the Dragon Ball manga, and the second chapter of Part II of the manga.


Bulma pays a visit to Kame House, revealing she and Yamcha have had a falling out of sorts. Wondering where Lunch is, Kuririn tells her Lunch went chasing after Tenshinhan five years ago, and no one has seen her since. Gokū, on top of Kintoun, is flying towards Kame House with a child in his lap. As Gokū makes his way towards Kame House and lands, the alien from earlier is also approaching at high speed.

Landing on the island, Gokū announces himself to his friends. They rush out to see him, only to see Gokū holding a child. Much to their shock, he explains that child is his, and his name is Son Gohan. They're also surprised to see that the boy has a tail, like the one Gokū used to have. On top of Gohan's head is the Si Xing Qiu, the Dragon all Goku's grandfather left him. Their reunion is cut short, however, by Gokū sensing a terrible power that makes his hair stand on end.

Calling Gokū 'Kakarrot', the alien notes the man looks just like his father, and demands to know why the inhabitants on the Earth are still alive, as Gokū's job was to exterminate them. Kuririn walks over to the alien, telling him that they don't need any drunks around the island, only to be knocked back by a powerful tail.
