Summary
  • Volume Summary : "Goku vs. Piccolo... As the 'Strongest Under the Heavens' martial arts tournament draws to a close, only Goku, Piccolo and Shen --- the disguised Kami-sama --- remain! But even a god is no match for Piccolo's new powers, and soon Goku finds himself fighting... alone... in a battle which will decide not just who is strongest, but who or what will rule the world! The audience flees for their lives as the struggle shakes the heavens apart." -- Cover

  • Plot Summary : "Legend says that whoever gathers the seven magical 'Dragon Balls' will be granted any one wish. Son Goku, a powerful young martial artist, first started his adventures by searching for them. As he grew older, he competed in the Tenka'ichi Budokai ('Strongest Under the Heavens') fighting tournament, winning second place two times in a row. When the Great Demon King Piccolo tried to conquer the world, only Goku was strong enough to defeat him. But Piccolo used his dying energy to create a clone of himself, vowing that the clone would return to get revenge. Now, three years later, Piccolo has challenged the world's strongest fighters at the Tenka'ichi Budokai. In the final rounds, only three challengers --- Goku, Piccolo and Kami-sama --- are left!"-- P. 5 of volume
