"The Martial Arts Tournament Concludes! And Then…" (武道大会終了！そして…, Budō Taikai Shūryō! Soshite…; Viz "Up in the Air") is the one hundred thirty-fourth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
With the additional speed from the Kamehameha Boost, Gokū collides with Tenshinhan, stunning him, causing them both to begin falling down. The announcer decides to break out a Hoi Poi Capsule plane, and flies into the air for a closer view. Gokū and Tenshinhan were falling at an even pace, but Gokū creates a small Kamehameha, which elevates him just slightly above for an advantage. As they descend, however, Gokū collides with a van right before hitting the ground, causing him to collide faster than Tenshinhan, who follows shortly after.
As he hit the ground first, Gokū loses, and Tenshinhan is pronounced the winner. After the end of the match, Tenshinhan offers Gokū half the prize money, as Goku technically should have won due to being the better fighter. Gokū declines, however, but when the group decides to go out to eat, Tenshinhan volunteers to at least pay for the meal. Before they go, Gokū notices his staff and Dragon Ball are missing. Kuririn volunteers to go retrieve them. Tenshinhan apologizes to Yamcha for his injuries, and Muten Rōshi offers Tenshinhan a chance to stay with him. Lunch, having fallen for Tenshinhan, demands that he accept, but Tenshinhan declines on the grounds that they are the students of Tsuru Sennin.
There's a scream, and Gokū recognizes it as Kuririn's voice. Rushing to find the source of the disturbance, they see Kuririn lying on the ground, unmoving. The announcer explains a monster came in, attacked them, and took the list of previous Tenka-Ichi Budōkai finalists. Gokū realizes that the monster not only attacked them, but killed Kuririn.
