"The Broken Dragon Radar" (こわれたドラゴンレーダー, Kowareta Doragon Reidā) is the eighty-second chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


A frustrated General Blue discovers Gokū pursuing him still, and decides to retreat to the Red Ribbon Army Headquarters, acknowledging Gokū's strength and tenacity. As Gokū encounters the general's crashed helicopter and fails to find the Dragon Balls, the young boy is later shocked by Arale's sudden appearance, and acknowledges that her running speed is just as fast as his Kintoun. While Gokū continues to search for Blue, the general encounters Suppaman, who attempts to threaten Blue. The general responds by showcasing his strength to Suppaman, intimidating the "hero" into directing the general to Senbi Norimaki for capsules, and losing his car to Blue in the process.

Elsewhere, Gokū then realizes he has the Dragon Radar to aid him in finding the stolen Dragon Balls, only to be dismayed when the radar is once again broken. Arale then directs Gokū to a scientist that she thinks can fix the radar, and Gokū takes her and Gacchan on his Kintoun. As Gokū meets Senbe and his family, the young boy asks the scientist if he can fix his radar, which Senbe is unable to do, stunned at the fact that there is a girl than is more intelligent than him in terms of technology.
