"The Makankōsappō" (魔貫光殺砲, Makankōsappō; Viz "A Surprise Appearance"; Literally meaning "The Demon's Penetrating Killing Ray Gun") is the two hundred second chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, and the eighth chapter of Part II of the manga.


Raditz curses aloud as Piccolo announces the name of his technique, Makankōsappō. Gokū and his brother are left in awe of the ki that seems to stretch light around their view before the prior has to look away from the force of the strike. However, as the dust settles, only a bleeding shoulder with scorched armor was seen as the attack's success having punched a hole in a mountain kilometers behind his target. Noting that with how much ease the technique pierced his armor, Raditz acknowledges that if the strike hit him dead-on, he'd been killed. Shouting that he's through playing around now that he's angry, Piccolo is left stunned believing that the fight was over.

Stretching his hand up to collect a large amount of ki into his hand, he swings down with the intention of killing his brother's arch rival. Instead, he finds himself halting his attack as his movements are cut short by his little sibling grasping his tail from behind. Brought to the ground by the pain, Gokū keeps the Saiyan pinned while Piccolo charges his attack for the second and last time that he can manage. Begging for his life, Raditz attempts to coerce his brother to let him go. Despite his arch rival's pleas to not listen, he lets go and Raditz viciously strikes back into his chin and then driving his boot onto his chest.

Wrapping his tail around his chest, he calls his brother a fool for falling for such a trick and that he truly didn't belong with First Class Elite Warriors like himself. Turning to look at Piccolo, he dared the Demon Schooler to fire again, knowing he could dodge it now he was aware of its power. Returning his attention to Gokū he slowly crushes his sibling's ribs with the sole of his foot, prying out desperate screams of agony and suffering that echo throughout the battlefield. Such cries didn't go unheard, as in a surprising crash of force a young Gohan emerges with a rare look of pure fury etched onto his features.
