Dragon Ball Wiki

"The Dragon Ball Scramble" (ドラゴンボールそうだつせん Doragon Bōru Sōdatsusen, lit. "The Struggle for the Dragon Ball") is the fifty-sixth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The cover of this chapter shows Goku flying in a plane piloted by a capsule robot with Red Ribbon Army symbols on its wings.


Goku does not know what the Red Ribbon Army is and does not care. Colonel Silver steals Goku's bag containing the Dragon Ball he just found and the Dragon Radar, but Goku takes it back. This prompts Silver to happily start fighting, but he gets trashed very easily by Goku. Since the Flying Nimbus no longer exists, Goku decides to try using one of the RR capsules. The first one gives him a service robot which tells him what capsule to try second. This gives Goku an airplane that the robot then flies for him.

Commander Red

In the Red Ribbon Headquarters, Commander Red is talking to his aide about getting all of the Dragon Balls. A minion runs into state that one of the Dragon Balls is moving towards Colonel Silver's Camp. After repeated tries, they get Silver on the radio and are told about Goku. They suspect that "the brat" has a Dragon Radar like they do. The Dragon Ball is moving into the arctic region, towards General White, and he is to be told to kill the kid.

Back in the airplane, Goku is freezing and the Red Ribbon Robot tells robots do not feel the cold. The Dragon Ball is below them when the robot crashes the plane. In the Muscle Tower, General White receives a call about the crashed plane. He looks forward to trashing the "baka-brat" as his men conduct the search. Goku is then seen being dragged through the snow by a little girl.
