"Monkey Imitating Son Gokū" (猿マネ孫悟空, Saru Mane Son Gokū; Viz "One Lucky Monkey") is the forty-eighth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


As the fight between Gokū and Jackie Chun continues, Chun opts to using a double afterimage attack to fool Gokū and send him flying to the wall. However, as the host announcer starts the count, Gokū jumps right back up and imitates Chun's attack with his own variant utilizing a triple afterimage sequence, much to Chun's bafflement.

While Chun nearly reveals himself as Rōshi to Gokū, Chun opts to combat Gokū with the Drunken fist style, with Chun figuring that Gokū couldn't imitate this technique because Gokū had never gotten drunk before. As Gokū acknowledges that his grandfather was skilled in using that technique as well, the young boy finds himself to be frustrated with Chun's attacks. Gokū then decides to fight back with his own style resembling the actions of a dog, and sends Chun flying to the wall. Chun then becomes frustrated from Gokū continuing to counter his attacks.
