"The Dragon Balls Are Stolen!!" (D.B.奪われる!!, Doragon Bōru Ubawareru!!; Viz "Who's Got My Balls?!") is the eighteenth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.

Summary

As the Dragon Team heads for the One-Star Dragon Ball, Bulma reveals her goal in using the seven Dragon Balls to make a wish for a boyfriend, causing her to earn the ridicule of Oolong. While Bulma and Oolong argue, a woman observes them from the top of a tall mushroom, informing her boss Pilaf and her other partner Soba of the Dragon Team's whereabouts. Gokū and friends are later ambushed by a machine conducted by Soba, leading the Dragon Team to lose possession of the Dragon Balls. On Bulma's request, Gokū uses his Kintoun to attempt to reclaim the stolen Dragon Balls, only to find an empty machine and return to inform Bulma of his inability to locate the Dragon Balls.

Bulma, brimming with confidence, realizes they still have one Dragon Ball and can use the capsules she obtained to replace the vehicle that was damaged by the ambush, only to recall that she left the remaining capsules with the bag containing the stolen Dragon Balls. This forces Yamcha and Pu'ar, who were observing from afar, to help The Dragon Team, much to the team's delight in encountering Yamcha once again. After The Dragon Team follows the woman and Soba, the two thieves consult Emperor Pilaf in his castle, who then detects that the last Dragon Ball is approaching them. While the Dragon Team tries to sneak into the castle, they encounter a dead end, which ends up being a trap, much to Pilaf's disbelief for them falling for such an obvious trap.
