"Gokū's Tail" (悟空のシッポ, Gokū no Shippo; Viz "To Win by a Tail") is the one hundred seventh chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


As the masked man is impressed that Gokū managed to dodge his attack, he sees an opening to overtake the young boy as Gokū is in the air and cannot move freely. However, Gokū counters this by firing a Kamehameha of his own while falling down, which a stunned masked man manages to escape. As Gokū pins down the masked man, the man reveals that he is holding Gokū's tail, causing the young boy to lose power.

Yamcha and Puar reveal to the rest of the Dragon Team that Gokū's tail is his weak point, surprising even Kame-Sennin. As Uranai Baba and the masked man are confident they have the victory, Kame-Sennin informs the team that the masked man knew of Gokū's weakness the entirety of the battle, much to their surprise. Elsewhere, using a satellite to watch the battle, Emperor Pilaf and his subordinates, and are elated to discover Gokū's weakness. The emperor the reveals that he has the last Dragon Ball hidden in a case so that the Dragon Team's Dragon Radar cannot detect it.

As Pilaf and his crew set off to attempt to steal the other six Dragon Balls, the masked man is exploiting Gokū's weakness and using it against the boy to dominate him in combat. As Gokū refuses to give in, Bulma asks how did the masked man know of Gokū's weakness, leading Kame-Sennin to reveal the man behind the mask to be the young boy's deceased grandfather, Son Gohan, much to the team's shock. Eventually, after torturing Gokū, Gohan unintentionally tears off the young boy's tail.
