"Son Gohan and Piccolo Daimaō" (孫悟飯とピッコロ大魔王, Anoyo de Faito!!; Viz "Gohan and Piccolo"; Literally meaning "Son Gohan and Piccolo the Great Demon King") is the two hundred sixth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, and the twelfth chapter of Part II of the manga.
Having kidnapped Gohan, Piccolo throws the boy into a lake to wake him up. Gohan panics, wondering hwere his father is, but Piccolo quickly loses his patience, threatening to kill the child if he doesn't stay silent. He explains that Gokū is dead — dying to save Gohan from his uncle. He then explains that Gokū will be revived with the Dragon Balls, but Raditz, who was already stronger than Gokū and Piccolo, has two comrades on their way. As such, Piccolo has decided they need Gohan's power to help with the battle.
Having seen Gohan's power for himself, Piccolo believes the boy will be an asset; Gohan however, disagrees. In an effort to prove it, Piccolo picks up Gohan and lobs him towards a plateau. Panicking, Gohan taps into his hidden potential, releasing a powerful blast of energy, which destroys the plateau completely, and carving a large trench into the ground.
Witnessing this display, Piccolo is stunned, noting the irony of raising the boy who could likely become his strongest opponent. Gohan is surprised to see that he managed to pull off the feat, and Piccolo notes that Gohan's power is most likely based on his emotion, so they'll have to find a way for the boy to maintain it. Gohan says he doesn't want to fight, but wants to become a scholar. Piccolo tells him he can worry about that after the Saiyans are defeated; if they destroy Earth, Gohan has no future to look forward to. Gohan tries to object again, saying he'd rather be trained by his father; Piccolo, however, states Gokū is far from the ideal teacher, Meanwhile, on Snake Way, Gokū sneezes.
