Chapter 169

Tenshinhan to Taopaipai

Weekly Jump Issue: 1988 #19
Color Pages: Incomplete
Tankoubon: 15
Kanzenban: 12


Things are starting, and the three Kame dougi-wearing young men have told Blooma, Good Lunch, Oolong, Puer, and Kamesennin that everyone but Chaozu is competing. Kuririn says the person who defeated Chaozu was Tsurusennin's little brother Taopaipai, who survived his fight with Gokuu and became half robot. Yamcha says Taopaipai intends to kill Gokuu and Tenshinhan, and he's fighting Tenshinhan in the first match. Kamesennin thinks Tenshinhan's in trouble, but Gokuu says he ain't, Taopaipai's no match for Tenshinhan.

And then Tsurusennin interrupts them, and says the clumsy punks of the Kamesen-Style will be wiped out. Kamesennin tells him that Tenshinhan, and now these three here, don't follow the Kamesen-Style, they're walking their own path. "Hoh, despite the fact that they're wearing Kamesen-Style dougi?" Kamesennin says they've done that against his will, and Kuririn affirms it. And then Tsurusennin walks off, talking some more crap about how they'll lose. But Gokuu says Taopaipai ain't really all that awesome.

The contests are called on to start the matches, and so everyone wishes Gokuu, Yamcha, and Kuririn well as they head off. Kamesennin mentions getting to be a spectator this time, but then Oolong shouts out that the crowd is too big, and there's no way to get a good view. Blooma then tickles Good Lunch's nose with a little reed, and she sneezes and turns into the bad one. Bad Lunch pulls out her pistols and starts firing into the air, clearing a path for them.

Kuririn asks Gokuu why he thinks Taopaipai won't win, so Gokuu explains that Tenshinhan is just much more awesome. And, if Tsurusennin tries something, he has these things that can fill you up like ten days worth of food. Kuririn and Yamcha grin, and Kuririn says he and Yamcha-san also have Senzu. Yamcha explains that Mutenroushi-sama told him, Kuririn, Tenshinhan, and Chaozu about climbing Karin Tower, and so they all trained there. Kuririn says there was this Yajirobe dude there, and he told him to come to the Budoukai since he looked strong. But, it seems he didn't show up, and Yajirobe is hiding in the bushes, pissed about having lost.

"Ladies and gentleman of the audience, so sorry to have kept you waiting such an awfully long time!! But now we're back, and we'll begin the twenty-third Tenkaichi Budoukai!!" Taopaipai and Tenshinhan are called out for the first match, and Bad Lunch yells out at Tenshinhan to kick some ass. "Well then, please begin the first match!!" Tenshinhan and Taopaipai stare each other down, as Yamcha, Gokuu, Kuririn, Tsurusennin, and Kamesennin watch intently.

Taopaipai rushes at Tenshinhan, but Tenshinhan easily sidesteps it, then pops Taopaipai on the back. Taopaipai staggers back up, pissed, and Tenshinhan tells him to please stop. Taopaipai asks about that, and Tenshinhan disappears, then reappears behind Taopaipai, saying he thinks he's become too strong for him.
