"The Final Kikōhō" (最後の気功砲, Saigo no Kikōhō; Viz "The Last Blast"; Literally meaning "The Final Energy Control Cannon") is the two hundred eighteenth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, and the twenty-fourth chapter of Part II of the manga.


Rushing back from the Afterworld, Gokū pushes himself harder, desperate to make it to his friends in time.

Having survived Chaozu's explosion easily, Nappa begins to plan his second counterattack. Tenshinhan, however, mourns the loss of his friend, and how he can never be revived by the Dragon Balls again. Piccolo begins to formulate a strategy, to which Vegeta overhears, but does not do anything to prevent, rather wishing them luck. Piccolo replies that once Gokū arrives, things will be different, a statement which interests Vegeta. Nappa lunges, drawing the attention of the fighters. Tenshinhan prepares an attack but Kuririn and Piccolo launch their assault. Gohan, however, is too scared to follow, leaving Piccolo and Kuririn to continue the attack with blasts that Nappa dodges.

The assault merely managed to make Nappa angry, but Tenshinhan releases a massive Kikōhō from the ground, promising to avenge Chaozu and then join him in death. The blast, however, left Nappa unscathed and Tenshinhan falls to the ground in death. Severely panicking, Kuririn shouts for Gokū.
