Tien vs. Goku

Yamcha sneaks out of the hospital to watch the final match. Oolong transforms into a giant ogre to save front-row seats for everyone. The match finally starts, and right away Goku attacks. He grabs Tien Shinhan's leg with his tail and swings around to punch him in the face. Tien flies up in the air, and Goku jumps up after him. Tien hits Goku with a Dodon Ray, blasting him down through the floor of the ring. Goku jumps up from the rubble and continues his assault. He tries his disappearing trick again, but Tien's three eyes help him to keep track of Goku's movements. While Goku is running around, Tien hits him, sending him flying to the wall of the ring. Tien pins Goku against the wall and beats him mercilessly.


  • When Goku looks out the window, the backward sign above the entrance to the stadium reads, "WELLCOME", instead of Welcome.
