"Separate Ways" (ドラゴンチーム解散 Doragon Chīmu Kaisan, lit. "The Dragon Team Parts Ways") is the twenty-third chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
As the chapter opens, morning has arrived. The gang is sitting in the desert as Goku awakens, having no recollection of the previous night. He asks where the Power Pole is, which Yamcha directs him in the direction of the ruined castle. As the boy races towards the decrepit building, Oolong brings up the gang will probably split up because the Dragon Balls are unusable for another year. As Yamcha and Bulma contemplate not having their wishes granted, they decide to move to the city together. They ask Goku (who had returned after retrieving the Power Pole) to join them, but he declines; he plans on going to Master Roshi's to train. Goku remarks that they should search for the Dragon Balls together after the year is up, but Yamcha and Bulma no longer need them. Wanting the Four-Star Dragon Ball, Goku asks how he is supposed to search for it, which Bulma gives him the Dragon Radar for. As they say their good-byes, they promise to meet up someday. Yamcha, Bulma, Puar and Oolong depart in Yamcha's ship, while Goku takes off on the Flying Nimbus. Goku makes the remark that there are many different people in the world, which is where the chapter ends.
