"An Unprecedented Terror" (かつてない恐怖, Katsute Nai Kyōfu; Viz "An Unexpected Strength") is the two hundredth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, and the sixth chapter of Part II of the manga.


Raditz howls with laughter as he points out how too late it is to pull back now what with his two comrades who are stronger than him coming afterwards. While Piccolo points out how Gokū would normally be excited, the latter is feeling chills thinking about it. Forgetting about their predicament he demands the Saiyan sibling to tell him where Gohan is. Admitting he hadn't hid the child, having placed him in his Attack Ball because he won't stop screaming. Rising up into the air, he shouts to his son that he'll save him soon, only for Raditz to laugh for giving his child hope. Rejoining Piccolo on the ground, the two ready themselves in a second before charging at the Saiyan warrior.

Charging forward, they are unable to break through his defense, his sheer speed enabling him to evade their frontal and rear flank attacks with ease. Rising up into the air, the two fighters of Earth give chase. Before they can reach him however, the intergalactic soldier merely gestured with his arms, unleashing large torrents of potent ki. While Gokū evades the blast by a small margin, Piccolo loses an arm and the prior receives a vicious kick from his remorseless brother. As the emerald skinned arch rival of Gokū says he can manage to fight with one arm Raditz barks out with a laugh that he'll take his head off next. With no new techniques that the Turtle Schooler thought up, Piccolo reveals a new move he had recently developed that he regrettably reveals in front of his rival.
