Tenshinhan is amazed that Gokū can humiliate Piccolo, and the boy tells Piccolo that it is his turn to attack now. This statement angers Piccolo, but Gokū is even more furious that Piccolo killed so many of his friends. With incredible speed, Gokū lands the first punch, outspeeding even Tenshinhan's vision and catching Piccolo off-guard. After a furious exchange of blows, Gokū proves to be the superior, and even Piccolo notes that Gokū is the first person to make him truly angry. Gokū urges Piccolo to use his full power, and Piccolo decides to oblige, despite the fact that using it would shorten his lifespan.
After Piccolo reaches full strength, Gokū agrees to use his own full power. Piccolo thinks Gokū is merely showing off, and with the thrust of his hand, creates a kiai that blows Gokū backwards.
