When Kuririn is killed by a lizard-like monster, Goku goes in search of the culprit and finds his most terrifying enemy yet: the evil Demon King Piccolo! Freed after centuries of imprisonment, Piccolo sends waves of monsters on a mission to find the Dragon Balls and destroy any martial artists who might oppose him. With his flying cloud destroyed, Goku finds himself lost in the jungle where he meets an unlikely new ally. Meanwhile, Kame-Sen'nin prepares a last-ditch plan to defeat Piccolo... but at what cost?
The ring is annihilated by the Kikoho Tenshinhan fired. The match became an aerial battle, and Tenshinhan won due to a small difference in when they each hit the ground.
After the tournament had ended, Kuririn is killed by somebody. Goku flies off against Kame-sennin's orders, only to fail at his attempted revenge. From the insignia that was left behind, Kame-sennin determines that Kuririn's murderer was Piccolo Daimao.
Piccolo Daimao finally appeared before Goku, who had cooperated with Yajirobe to defeat Piccolo's underlings. Goku fiercely assaulted Piccolo Daimao, but he was completely and utterly beaten to a pulp.
