"Vegeta vs. Reacoom" (ベジータのそっこう!! Bejīta no Sokkō!!, lit. "Vegeta’s Quick Attack!!") is the eighty first chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the two hundred seventy-fifth overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The cover of this chapter features Goku in the foreground, and Piccolo, Yamcha, Tien Shinhan and Chiaotzu in the background and with halos over their heads.


With Guldo having been killed by Vegeta, Recoome steps up to fight him next. He tells Vegeta that he can even have Krillin and Gohan help him if he wants, but Jeice objects that they are for him and Burter. Reacoom performs a special pose, presumably to help him get prepared for battle.

Vegeta fires the Final Crash at Reacoom

Vegeta then powers up, shocking everyone there. Jeice exclaims that his power level is over 20,000 and still rising. With Reacoom distracted by his power boost, Vegeta charges at him and connects with a punch to the face, knocking off Reacoom's scouter and sending him falling backwards. Before he can even hit the ground, Vegeta quickly moves behind him and smashes him down from above, then follows up by slamming his knees into Reacoom's chest. He grabs the stunned Reacoom's left leg and hurls him into a nearby rock formation before attacking with a Final Crash. Kuririn and Gohan dive out of the way, and the huge blast hits home. Kuririn believes that the fight is over.

However, much to the shock of Vegeta, Kuririn, and Gohan, Reacoom is not only still alive, but seemingly unaffected aside from the loss of his armor. Reacoom says it is time to really get started, while Butta complains about all the dust Vegeta has kicked up. Reacoom darts towards Vegeta and unleashes a Recoome Kick, sending the Saiyan prince hurtling backwards.
