Goku has made it to the Tenka'ichi Budôkai, the world's #1 martial arts tournament...but even the training of the martial arts master Kame-Sen'nin hasn't prepared him for this! Only seven finalists remain. Will the champion be Goku? His fellow student Kuririn? Yamcha, master of the "Fist of the Wolf Fang"? Fighting woman Ran Fuan? Giran, a rubbery monster who's part dinasaur? Namu, an Indian mystic? Or Jackie Chun, the mysterious old man who may be the toughest fighter of all? There can be only one winner in the wildest, craziest battle ever!
Strong opponents appeared before Goku. The mystery man Jackie Chun defeats Yamcha and Kuririn. His mystery deepens as he continues to win through astounding strength, and unleashes a Kamehameha during his match with Kuririn. It then turned out that Jackie Chun's identity, which he had tried to conceal, was Goku and Kuririn's master Kame-sennin. Meanwhile, Goku easily advances, knocking down Giran in his first match and Namu in his second. And then the finals begin, with Goku vs. Jackie Chun.
