"Piccolo's Trump Card! Gohan is a Crybaby" (ピッコロの切り札!悟飯は泣きむしクン, Pikkoro no Kirifuda! Gohan wa Nakimushi-kun; FUNimation "Piccolo's Plan") is the fourth episode of the Dragon Ball Z anime.


Gokū and Piccolo throw everything they've got against Raditz, but it seems that even their combined power stops short of Raditz's own strength. Both get injured and Piccolo even loses an arm. However, Piccolo has an idea that might beat him: the Makankōsappō, his newest and most powerful technique. But, he has to power up to make it work. He requires five minutes to gather the strength, and Gokū does his best to give him that. Despite the fact that the two drastically raise their fighting strength with heavy concentration, they do not manage to defeat Raditz using their attacks. Suddenly, Gokū does manage to grab Raditz's tail, instantly weakening him. Raditz surrenders and Gokū releases his tail, however Raditz quickly attacks Gokū again elbowing him in the face and crushing his chest. As Raditz prepares to kill Gokū, he suddenly picks up an enormous fighting strength coming from Gohan.
