"Ambush in the Pirate Harbor" (海賊港の伏兵, Kaizoku Minato no Fukuhei; Viz "Robot in Waiting!") is the seventy-fifth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


As Gokū, Bulma and Kulilin enter the Pirate Harbor, unbeknownst to the three, General Blue is closely following behind. Just then, a robot appears and ambushes the three, leading Gokū and Kulilin to retaliate. Observing from afar, Blue realizes that the young boys can use martial arts. Gokū then tells Kulilin to retreat with Bulma to find the Dragon Ball while he handles the robot, and Blue secretly follows the two.

After a brief underwater struggle, Gokū emerges from the water, and uses his Nyoibō to aid him to land a devastating aerial attack on the robot, destroying it entirely. As Gokū chases after Bulma and Kulilin, the two use the Dragon Radar to track the Dragon Ball, and Kulilin draws an arrow on the ground to assist Gokū in finding them. Unbeknownst to them, Blue appears in order to alter the direction of the arrow to confuse Gokū, and the general pursues Kulilin and Bulma.
