"Kame Sennin's Bashōsen" (亀仙人の芭蕉扇, Kamesennin no Bashōsen; Viz "Fanning the Flame"; Literally meaning "The Turtle Hermit's Banana Palm Fan") is the thirteenth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.
On the island, Gokū showcases his appreciation to Kame-Sennin from giving him his Kintoun, only for the young boy to be astonished to learn that the flying cloud is "a gift from God." As Kame-Sennin mistakes Chi-Chi for Bulma, Chi-Chi throws her blade from her helmet from her disbelief in Kame-Sennin being who her father claims he is, only to injure the turtle hermit's head and find out the old man really is Kame-Sennin, leading the young girl to reclaim her blade and ask for Kame-Sennin's forgiveness.
Afterwards, Gokū remembers to ask the turtle hermit for his Bashōsen, and Kame-Sennin agrees to give it to Gokū on one condition: to touch Bulma's breasts, much to Umigame's disgust. However, Kame-Sennin recalls himself accidentally throwing away his fan, leading him to resolve to go to Frypan Mountain to quell the flames of Gyūmaō's castle himself, and getting there by riding on Baby Gamera.
Gokū, Chi-Chi and Kame-Sennin arrive by the burning castle, as Oolong introduces himself to Chi-Chi. As Gyūmaō is disappointed that Gokū does not have his master's powerful fan, the young boy informs the demon lord that Kame-Sennin resolved to put out the flames on the castle himself, only for the Ox-King and others to witness his master puke from the dizziness of riding on top of Baby Gamera.
