"Hurry, Son Gokū!" (いそげ!孫悟空, Isoge! Son Gokū; Viz "Hope Runs Out") is the two hundred seventeenth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, and the twenty-third chapter of Part II of the manga.


With his power fully release, the monstrous Nappa brims with ki. Rushing forward, the man cuts off Tenshinhan's arm cleanly, causing the latter to howl in great pain. Before he can sever the man's head, Tenshinhan leaps into the air, only to be struck down by a persistent Nappa. Kuririn rushes to try and save his friend, but Nappa keeps him at bay with a powerful shock wave that cuts deep into the Earth.

Chaozu vanishes within the chaos, and latches onto Nappa's back. With a final farewell to Tenshinhan, the martial artist blows himself up in a suicide attempt to kill the Saiyan. While the others commend or mourn Chaozu's sacrifice, Nappa was revealed to have survived, making the self-destruction a pointless act.
