Goku now takes his place next to his father at the ring. As the Dragon Balls gong rings, Master Roshi uses them to make Tien Saiyan into a powerful attack. The battle between the two siblings is fast and hard and ends with Goku defeating Tien. Suddenly, the Dragon Balls begin fusing. As Goku and the rest try to figure out what's happening, Krillin and Tien are captured and taken away. Krillin is able to phone the reporters quickly, who broadcast the news that Tien has been killed, and Chiaotzu comes to remind the rest about the Knight of Ox and Dragon's current new mission.
The World Martial Arts Tournament is now about to start, and we're introduced to a rival team for Goku: the Blue Ribbon Army. This force is composed of the best soldiers in the world, and it contains the fighters chosen by General Dodoria for the World Martial Arts Tournament. It is composed and led by General Blue, an old friend of Goku's father (and Team 14 member) who is now the leader of the force. The mission for the team is to kill Goku. The base of the team is the mysterious Island Turtle. General Blue explains that island turtles can survive only when their instincts take over. For example, a turtle can survive by eating fast, but if its gut is taken away, the turtle will eventually die from starvation. General Blue explains that for humans, there is a similar imperative; that the human mind will instinctively turn on itself and destroy itself.
During the tournament, the opponents of the Blue Ribbon Army switch their teams. A fight between Goku and Majin Buu results in Buu being defeated. At this moment, Goku encounters a strange urchin named Louie. Soon, Louie defeats Goku and captures him. Chiaotzu is then captured by the General of Team Goemon. While Chiaotzu is watching them, Goku notices that what they're doing resembles his own training. Chiaotzu outfits Goku in Konpeitai armor and then asks him to find a Secret Technique. Goku finds a peculiar technique that allows him to travel to the other world. As this technique is about to be used for the first time, Goku remembers that they need to find the Dragon Balls to create even more power. d2c66b5586
