"General Blue Commences His Assault" (ブルー将軍攻撃開始, Burū Shōgun Kōgeki Kaishi; Viz "The Blue Meanies") is the seventy-second chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


As Gokū, Bulma and Kulilin dive underwater, General Blue spots them and receives intel that the Dragon Balls that Gokū had were left at the Kame House. While Blue decides to launch his assault on the Kame House, Bulma is able to detect the Dragon Ball's location in an underwater cavern, and figures out a way to enter the cave. Whilst Blue's air fleet prepare to attack the Kame House, the general is tailing the Dragon Team in his own submarine, and assaults them before they enter the cavern. Bulma and Kulilin are later shocked and intimidated that Gokū has drawn the attention of the dangerous Red Ribbon Army, and retreat to the cave for cover. As Blue follows the Dragon Team into the cave, the Army prepares to capture Kame-Sennin and the rest of the inhabitants on his island.
