"A Rival? Arrival!!" (ライバル?参上!!, Raibaru? Sanjō!!; Viz "A Rival Arrives!!") is the twenty-fifth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


After Kame-Sennin is discontent by Gokū's inability to differentiate pretty women from all other women, the turtle hermit sends the young boy to look for another girl yet again. This time around, Gokū manages to bring a mermaid over to the Kame House, much to Kame-Sennin's pleasure. After the turtle hermit's failed attempt to grope the mermaid, Gokū notices a boat heading to the island during his "training" session with Kame-Sennin. Emerging from the boat, a boy by the name of Kulilin arrives from a faraway east village to inform Kame-Sennin of his intentions to become one of the turtle hermit's disciples.

Kame-Sennin initially denies Kulilin's request, but Kulilin then bribes the master with a smutty magazine. After Gokū and Kulilin's brief interaction, Kame-Sennin then gives Kulilin his conditions in finding a "Pichi Pichi" gal, leading the turtle hermit to be impressed by Kulilin's ability to differentiate pretty women from others. Kame-Sennin then instructs Kulilin to ride with Gokū on his Kintoun to search for a beautiful woman. However, through Kulilin's inability to get on the Kintoun, it is revealed that Kulilin intends to train with Kame-Sennin for impure desires, or in other words, to impress girls.
