"Gokū's Greatest Pinch!!" (悟空最大のピンチ!!, Gokū Saidai no Pinchi!!; Viz "Jackie's Shocking Secret") is the fiftieth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


As the sun sets with Gokū seemingly with the upper hand, Jackie Chun becomes persuaded that Gokū will lose the match by intending to perform a deadly move on the young boy. Jackie Chun reveals that he has only used this move on Gokū's grandfather Son Gohan before hitting Gokū with the shocking attack. As Chun, Yamcha and Kulilin plead to a persistent Gokū to give in or otherwise possibly lose his life, Gokū survives long enough before surrendering to look at the full moon and transform into a giant monkey once again, much to the shock of everyone.
