Three years later, in the rain, Muten Rōshi and Lunch wait for their friends in the rain. A car pulls up, and Bulma, Puar, and Oolong step out. Excited to see how she's grown, Rōshi feels Bulma up, only to have his face smashed in. Neither Oolong nor Bulma know, as Yamcha simply left to train — irritating Bulma. Rōshi realizes just how influenced by Gokū Kuririn and Yamcha were.
A strange man in a turban, carrying an umbrella, approaches the Dragon Team, and greets them like he knows them. The party present is utterly surprised, not believing the tall man in front of them was really the little Gokū. As the rain stops, Gokū removes his turban, revealing his trademark hairstyle.
Yamcha, Tenshinhan, Kuririn, and Chaoz arrive, greeting their friends. Kuririn, seeing Goku, runs to hug his best friend, and Yamcha and Tenshinhan are surprised to see just how much Goku has grown. As the time to register closes in, Gokū and Kuririn ask if Muten Rōshi has their uniforms. Rōshi, however, says they're independent fighters and don't need to wear his colors, but wishes his former students luck.
Kuririn reveals that, having figured their teacher wouldn't make them a uniform, had one made for him. Gokū and Yamcha, however, all thought along similar lines, and the students of Muten Rōshi once again wear his colors. Yamcha notices that Gokū had his tail removed, and Gokū confirmed that God removed it, saying he wanted to put the moon back, and that Gokū's tail was limiting his progress. The martial artist senses a presence at the tournament and turns to see a face that both he and Tenshinhan recognize: Piccolo.
