"The Real Fight" (両者真剣勝負 Ryōsha Shinken Shōbu, lit. "Serious Contest for Both Competitors") is the one hundred eighty-fourth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The cover shows Goku and Piccolo facing each other on the World Martial Arts Tournament ring, with Chi-Chi, Tien Shinhan, Master Roshi, Yamcha, and Krillin watching them. This chapter's cover is used as a scene in "Detekoi Tobikiri Zenkai Power!", the first ending for Dragon Ball Z.


Goku and Piccolo come at each other, exchanging multiple fast hits, and then they clasp hands for a test of strength. Piccolo tries to fire Eye Lasers at Goku, but Goku ducks them, and then swings his feet up to kick Piccolo in the face, knocking him back a bit. Then Goku disappears, and Piccolo waits for it, then he elbows Goku into the back wall. The wall gets busted up, surprising Krillin and everyone who are right next to the wall.

Goku is not in the rubble, but is behind Piccolo now, and he kicks Piccolo across the ring. Piccolo then heads up into the air, and yells down that he is going to blow the whole place away. Goku yells at everyone to run away, but then realizes it is too late for that. Goku jumps up after Piccolo, who thinks Goku is an idiot for protecting humans.

Piccolo fires an Explosive Demon Wave down toward Goku, and it just barely grazes Goku before it lands in the distance and blows up some random mountains. Piccolo's angered it just merely grazed him, as Goku flies off toward a ring out. But Goku propels himself back into the ring with a little Kamehameha, and then yells up at still mid-air Piccolo that he is going to counter with a Super Kamehameha.
