"Commander Red Dies!" (レッド総帥死す!, Reddo Sōsui Shisu!; Viz "The Fall of Commander Red") is the ninety-fifth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


Whilst Gokū dominates the soldiers of the Red Ribbon Army, Lieutenant Black once again suggests the notion of retreating to a shellshocked Commander Red, who again refutes the idea and is determined to maintain the Dragon Balls. Red then reveals his desire to use the mystical spheres to grow in height, which causes Black to lose respect for Red, as the lieutenant was under the perception that the Dragon Balls were going to be used to help the Army conquer the world.

A heated argument between Red and Black ends with the lieutenant killing his commander, and Black resolves to be the new commander of the Red Ribbon Army and take over the world. Gokū eventually reaches the top and encounters Black, who offers the young boy a chance at ruling the world alongside him, which Gokū refuses. Black then attempts to combat Gokū, but is embarrassed by the young boy, forcing the lieutenant to use a capsule and summon a giant robot. As Black manages to hit Gokū, the Dragon Team is on its way to the base.
