"The Great Escape!!" (大脱出!!, Dai-Dasshutsu!!; Viz "The Great Escape") is the seventy-eighth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


As Gokū is unable to move, General Blue manages to land a dire blow on the young boy, forcing Gokū to the ground and unable to get up. Blue then uses a capsule to summon a rifle and threaten to shoot Gokū if Bulma does not reveal the location of the Dragon Ball. The young woman then reveals where the mystical ball is, much to Kulilin's frustration. Blue decides to kill Gokū anyway for interfering with the Red Ribbon Army's plans, but stops as the appearance of a rat scares the general. Gokū emerges from paralysis and uses his Jan Ken to knockout Blue.

Subsequently, Gokū tells Bulma and Kulilin to escape as he search for the Dragon Ball, which he successfully finds underwater. As Bulma and Kulilin find a submarine and wait for Gokū, the young boy emerges from the water and decides to escape the crumbling cavern with the rat that aided him in escaping death at the hands of General Blue, who wakes up and decides to take the treasure with him.
