Dragon Ball Wiki
This article is about the two hundred eightieth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. For the anime volume, see Super Saiyan?! (volume). For the transformation, see Super Saiyan.

"Super Saiyan?" (スーパーサイヤじん!? Sūpā Saiya-jin!?) is the eighty sixth chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the two hundred eightieth overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The cover of this chapter features a young, childlike version of Goku looking up confusingly at an adult and grown up version of himself. In the English Translation, Adult Goku is saying "I've grown up quite a bit, haven't I?"


The chapter opens with Recoome voicing his surprise over Goku's confidence. Goku tells Recoome that he will not win, which Recoome laughs off as a bluff. Krillin and Gohan are puzzled by Goku's behavior, while Vegeta angrily tells himself that Goku could never become the legendary Super Saiyan. He recalls the story that a Super Saiyan appears only once every thousand years; he believes that it is a myth and that the only Saiyan capable is himself.


Recoome attacks Goku (Full Color)

While Vegeta thinks to himself, Recoome unleashes a Recoome Mach Attack on Goku. Goku dodges and seemingly disappears, until Jeice's scouter detects Goku behind him and Burter. Goku tells them that if they leave now, they will not have to get hurt, then flies back over to face Recoome again. Krillin notices that Vegeta seems to have been able to follow Goku's movements. Recoome then prepares to unleash his ultimate attack, which he claims will destroy a large circle around him. However, as Recoome prepares to attack, Goku elbows him in the chest, sending him to the ground with one blow. Everyone else is shocked. Jeice and Burter believe the attack was somehow a trick, while Vegeta realizes that it was just a tremendous attack. He notes how much Goku has changed and continues to wonder if he is the Super Saiyan.
