"The Grand Finals" (大決勝戦, Dai-Kesshōsen; Viz "The Final Match") is the forty-sixth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


As Kulilin, Bulma, Oolong, Pu'ar, Yamcha, and everyone else praise Gokū for his impressive win over Namu, Jackie Chun becomes wary of Gokū's prowess and decides not to underestimate him in their upcoming fight in the final round. Namu then gets up from the ring and congratulates Gokū for his victory before the 10 minute intermission.

During the break, Chun wonders why Namu is in such a rush to head home. As Namu contemplates about failing to bring water to cure the famine brought to his village, Chun then hands the lone villager a Hoi Poi Capsule. Namu is then shocked to learn that Chun is aware of the villager's reasoning for participating at the tournament, and this leads Chun to confirm that he is Muten Rōshi.

As Namu asks why Rōshi would appear in the tournament in costume, Rōshi explains his objective in testing his disciples' surprising strength and teaching them a lesson in the sense that there will always be someone else stronger than them, in order to prevent Gokū and Kulilin from becoming overconfident in their abilities.

While Namu is honored to speak with Rōshi, he attempts to return the capsule the turtle hermit gave to him due to not having enough funds to afford water for his entire village, only to be pleasantly surprised when Rōshi shows him a water well and reveals that water is so abundant in their location that it can be taken free of charge.

As Namu shows Rōshi his gratitude, the final showdown begins, and the turtle hermit asks the villager of a favor. Later on, Yamcha keeps pressuring Chun to reveal himself as Rōshi, leading Chun to direct Yamcha to Rōshi in the crowd, getting Yamcha to give up in his endeavor to prove Chun is Rōshi. However, the person Yamcha spotted in the crowd was revealed to be Namu in disguise as Rōshi to fool Yamcha, and Namu departs from the Tenka-Ichi Budōkai as the battle between Gokū and Jackie Chun initiates.
