"The Enemy of My Enemy..." (せっきん!!ギニューとくせんたい Sekkin!! Ginyū Tokusentai, lit. "They’re Closing In!! The Ginyu Special-Squad") is the seventy seventh chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the two hundred seventy-first overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The cover of this chapter features Gohan, Krillin, Vegeta and Nail sensing the arrival of the Ginyu Force.


Having sensed the ki of both Krillin and Gohan, Vegeta is surprised that they are not coming after his Dragon Balls. He decides to fly after them and take their Dragon Ball, bringing one of his with him in case Bulma finds his location with the Dragon Radar. Krillin and Gohan finally have Guru's house in their sights, but sense Vegeta coming after them. Krillin decides to stall Vegeta and buy some time while Gohan goes on ahead. Vegeta soon arrives and demands the Dragon Ball, but Krillin pretends not to know what he is talking about. However, Vegeta senses the Namekians at Guru's house and guesses that the Dragon Ball is there. Krillin denies it, but Vegeta flies by him towards the house.

Meanwhile, Guru has sensed Gohan's great hidden power, and realizes that he is not human. Gohan begs him to hurry. Vegeta arrives, but Nail refuses to allow him to enter. Gohan's power is successfully unlocked, and the resulting change in ki is so great that Vegeta believes Goku is inside. He is stunned when Gohan emerges from the house. Guru tells Dende to warn everyone that a large power is coming to Namek. Dende does so, and everyone soon senses a huge ki. Vegeta determines that there are really five kis, which means that the Ginyu Force has almost arrived.

Vegeta demands the Dragon Ball, saying that he will leave them all in peace if they give it to him. He states his desire to make himself immortal to combat the Ginyu Force. Krillin wants to make Gohan immortal instead, but Vegeta does not think that he has the necessary battle experience to defeat them. Nail informs the group that the Namekian Dragon Balls actually grant three wishes, rather than just one as on Earth. Knowing this, Krillin agrees to take Vegeta to the last Dragon Ball, and they, along with Gohan, fly off. Guru tells Nail to help them out, and that he will live a bit longer. In space, the space pods of the Ginyu Force have almost reached the planet.
