"Android No. 8" (人造人間８号, Jinzōningen Hachigō; Viz "Mechanical Man No. 8") is the sixty-third chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
Fleeing from his young pursuer, Murasaki lets Android No. 8 out of his cage, demanding he kill Goku. No. 8 refuses outright, stating that living things should not be killed, and that he doesn't want to do bad things. Murasaki is enraged, but No. 8 knows that the Red Ribbon Army is committing atrocities, and doesn't want to do what they say. Murasaki brings out a remote, and tells No. 8 that if he refuses to listen, a simple press of the button will activate the bomb hidden in his chest, and blow him up.
When No. 8 refuses again, General White issues the order for Murasaki to blow up the failure. Moving to take cover, Murasaki prepares to blow him up, and No. 8 accepts his fate. Goku, enraged, defeats Murasaki with the Jan Ken after destroying the remote. Goku and No. 8 introduce themselves to each other, and No. 8 volunteers to take Goku to the top floor of Muscle Tower. Deciding his name was too hard to say, Goku gives No. 8 the nickname "Hacchan", and No. 8 likes the sound of the nickname.
They make it easily to the top floor, and enter General White's building. Despite being implored to surrender, White presses a button, triggering the trap door in his office and sending Goku and No. 8 plummeting to the depths.
