"Gokū – The Greatest Pinch" (悟空・最大のピンチ, Gokū · Saidai no Pinch; FUNimation "Number One Under the Moon?") is the twenty-seventh episode of the Dragon Ball anime.

Summary

The sun begins to go down for dusk as the final match between Gokū and Jackie Chun continues. Jackie hypnotizes Gokū and puts him to sleep. Gokū can't wake up unless Jackie tells him to. Just before the count reaches 10, Bulma yells at Gokū that dinner is ready and Gokū wakes up. Then Gokū uses Jan Ken attack moves, but Jackie blocks them. Gokū tries it again and this time tricks him by saying "paper," but throwing rock. Jackie decides to use an attack that he's only ever used once before: the International Surprise Palm. He gathers his energy and shoots it at Gokū. This energy is transformed into 20,000 volts when it hits Gokū. Just as Gokū is about to give up, he glimpses the full moon and transforms into a Giant Monkey again. Knowing that he must stop Gokū's rampage at any cost, Jackie Chun fires his most powerful Kamehameha. When the dust clears, Gokū is nowhere to be seen and Bulma, Yamcha and the others believe Jackie killed Gokū.
