"Jackie Chun's Counterattack" (武天老師の逆襲, Jakkī Chun no Gyakushū; Viz "The Big Sleep") is the forty-ninth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Gokū begins to move around like a monkey in order to further frustrate Jackie Chun, leading Chun to perform a series of ominous movements, which end with Chun singing a lullaby to knock Gokū asleep. As the audience is disappointed at the potential end of the fight, Bulma, Oolong, Pu'ar, Yamcha and Kulilin plead to Gokū to wake up before the 10 count is over. Just before the 10 count ends, Bulma wakes up Gokū by screaming "it's time to eat," leading Gokū to wake up, look for food, and decide to finish off the fight in order to eat. A shell-shocked Jackie Chun engages Gokū in combat once more, and Gokū manages to strike Chun in the eyes and knock him down with his Jan Ken. As Chun recovers, he seemingly prepares to use his trump card in order to win the fight.
