"Dragon Balls in Danger!!" (ドラゴンボール危うし!!, Doragon Bōru Ayaushi!!) is the ninth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


Gokū, Bulma, and Oolong all rest and recover in the piglet's mobile home as he cooks for everyone. While Oolong is astonished at Gokū's voracious appetite, Bulma asks for a bathroom, only to be upset at the size of it, leading to her decision to take a shower as an alternative. Wary of Oolong's perverted plans and requesting pajamas, Bulma eventually showers. During this time, Yamcha formulates a plan to lure her away from the scene in order to steal the capsule.

While Gokū explains to Oolong their purpose in traveling to Fry-Pan Mountain by showing the pig a Dragon Ball, Yamcha peeks into the mobile home, only to be shocked and amazed to see Bulma's naked body while she's showering. Subsequently, Yamcha and Pu'ar overhear Gokū elaborating to Oolong of the seven Dragon Balls' ability to summon a dragon that can grant any wish. As Yamcha refocuses his efforts on the Dragon Balls to rid himself of his gynophobia, Bulma emerges from the shower frustrated with the size of pajamas Oolong gave to her. After Oolong begrudgingly agrees to give Bulma her clothes the next day, he deceives her and Gokū into drinking a liquid that eventually causes them both to sleep, in order to make way for Oolong to inappropriately touch Bulma.

But before Oolong can get to Bulma, he overhears Yamcha and Pu'ar sneaking into the mobile home, forcing the piglet to transform into an imitation of Bulma while Pu'ar heads up the stairs transformed as an imitation of Gokū. Both shapeshifters then leave the mobile home. While Yamcha heads upstairs and removes the covers from the bed thinking it is the location of the Dragon Balls, both Oolong and Pu'ar realize they've tricked each other outside. Pu'ar grabs Yamcha and is forced to retreat yet again to the hideout after Yamcha is stunned to encounter Bulma's naked body once again under the sheets of the bed rather than the Dragon Balls.
