"Son Gohan Grieves" (なげく孫悟飯, Nageku Son Gohan; Viz "Son Gohan, the Inconsolable") is the two hundred seventh chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, and the thirteenth chapter of Part II of the manga.


Piccolo tells Gohan that his training is to simply survive for six months, and if hhe's still alive when Piccolo returns, he'll teach the boy how to fight. Despite Gohan's insistence and pleas not to be left in the wilderness, Piccolo leaves the half-Saiyan alone, flying away.

Up on the Palace of God, God himself ponders over Piccolo's change of character with Mr. Popo, coming to the conclusion that Piccolo, like himself, has realized they will die in the coming year. God assumes Piccolo must want to pass his knowledge onto someone else, even if that someone is the son of his bitter rival. However, due to God's impending death, when the Dragon Balls resurrect Son Gokū, it will be the last time they are ever used.

Alone in the wilderness, crying to himself, Son Gohan encounters a Tyrannosaurus Rex, and flees from it. Stumbling, and nearly being killed, the half-Saiyan taps into his hidden power once again, propelling himself onto the nearest peak. Now, the boy finds himself stranded atop the peak, unable to get down. n the middle of the night, Gohan finds apples on the ground, and begins to eat, complaining about the taste as Piccolo watches his ungrateful student. Meanwhile, in the Afterworld, Gokū finds himself hungry despite being dead.
