"Frightened Warriors" (怯える戦士たち, Obieru Senshitachi; Viz "Heroes in Terror") is the two hundred sixteenth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, and the twenty-second chapter of Part II of the manga.


With his technique blasting towards the Saiyans, Kuririn's allies take cover. The Saibaimen flee, due to the blast's low speed, but Kuririn raises it into the air and splits the blast into multiple ki bullets, which rain down. He manages to kill all but a single Saibaiman, who attempts to attack Gohan. Piccolo manages to save the boy, and the Saiyans are revealed top have survived the blast. Nappa steps in to fight the Dragon Team, releasing enough ki to cause the ground beneath them to quake. The Dragon Team trembles in fear at Nappa's awesome power, and the true battle begins.
