"Piccolo's Trump Card" (ピッコロの切り札, Pikkoro no Kirifuda; Viz "Piccolo's Farewell to Arms!?") is the two hundred first chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, and the seventh chapter of Part II of the manga.


Raditz calls out to his opponents as he notes their plotting under their breaths being made, claiming aloud it's futile. Gokū meanwhile confirms that Piccolo can use his new technique with his sole remaining limb but requires time to build up ki necessary; this leaves him to fight his Saiyan sibling alone. Finding it funny that Piccolo was going to use this new technique to save him instead of killing him, as Piccolo originally intended, his laugh is noted by the other warrior and believes him to be insane. Telling him to give it his all, the Turtle Schooler launches himself back into the fray while Piccolo declares the name of his technique, Makankōsappō.

As he builds up ki by concentrating his forefingers at his forehead, Gokū fights an uphill battle against his superior brother. Blow for blow, he's worn down and bloodied by the exchange of fists and limbs crashing into him without a single deserved hit of his own to mark on his opponent. A well placed kick across the face sends him reeling back, but he instead uses the momentum to push himself up into the air much to Raditz's chagrin for being so persistent. Cupping his hands to the side, Gokū begins to chant aloud as he builds up ki for the Kamehameha. Surprising Raditz, he notes that by focusing all of his ki into a singular point he can multiply his power level, pushing it all the way up to 924. Noticing Piccolo's own technique gaining power, it's level rising past even 1030.

At that moment, Gokū launches his attack, sending a pillar of energy that arches towards the retreating Saiyan. As his younger brother manipulated it to follow him no matter where he went, Raditz holds his ground and stretches his hand out to meet the challenge. The blast connects and it explodes, harmlessly flaring outward without leaving a mark on him much to the airborne fighter's amazement. Launching a ki blast of his own that hit Gokū head-on, he rushes forward with the intent to kill him as he vocally declares it at the same time Piccolo does. Aghast that the power level his Scouter read was now 1330, realizing that they manipulate their ki at will. Announcing the name of his attack, Piccolo fires it straight at his opponent, unleashed in a beam that had another spiral around it simultaneously.
