"The Gathering of the Warriors" (集う超戦士たち Tsudō Sūpā Senshi-tachi, lit. "The Super Warriors Gather") is the one hundred forty third chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the three hundred thirty-seventh overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
Three years have passed since Future Trunks' revelations. On May 12, the day of the Red Ribbon Androids' predicted appearance, Goku, Gohan, and Piccolo fly towards Amenbo Island, where the androids are supposed to arrive. Along the way, they meet up with Krillin. He quickly notes that Goku and Gohan have been training intensely for this day. He thinks that he has trained and gotten stronger too, but not like a Super Saiyan.
When they arrive on the island, they are greeted by Yamcha, Tien Shinhan, and Bulma, who is carrying a baby. Goku says that it is too dangerous for her to be there, but she says that she wants to see the androids first and then she will leave. Krillin and Gohan are surprised to see that she has a baby and Gohan assumes that it belongs to Yamcha. He nonchalantly says that he is not the father, and that he and Bulma broke up a long time ago. Goku says that Vegeta is the father and the baby's name is Trunks, which shocks Gohan and Krillin. Bulma asks how he knew that, as she has not told anyone yet. Goku laughs it off and says that he was guessing. Piccolo asks where Vegeta is. Bulma does not know, since they are not living together, but knows he will come because he has been training intensely for the battle. Goku says that Vegeta will definitely come. The Dragon Team notice that the time is 9:30. To pass the time, Krillin and Gohan entertain Trunks. When 10:00 comes and goes, they wonder why the androids have not arrived. Gohan believes that they cannot sense the androids because they do not have ki. Yajirobe arrives with Senzu Beans for the Z Fighters, but refuses to fight with them when they ask for his assistance. When he leaves, his hovercar explodes, and they realize that the androids have finally arrived.
