A Matter of Pride (ギニュー隊長のプライド, Ginyū Taichō no Puraido; lit. "Captain Ginyu’s Pride") is the two hundred eighty-fourth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. This chapter's anime counterpart is the second part of the episode "Incredible Force!"
Having been distracted by Vegeta fleeing the scene, Goku is hit in the face with an elbow from Captain Ginyu. Goku is send flying backwards but quickly regain his composure. The two fighters spar briefly, neither getting any hits, before jumping apart. Ginyu says that Goku is good, but not good enough to beat him alone. Goku is still upset about Vegeta leaving to try and get the Dragon Balls. Vegeta believes that Goku and Ginyu are equally matched, and hopes they will take each other out while he beats the Dragon Ball invocation out of Gohan and Krillin.
As Goku and Ginyu prepare to start again, Ginyu reveals that he can also change his battle power at will. Jeice, admiring the Captain, mentally notes that Ginyu's power level can dwarf even Goku's supposed 60,000 (which was Ginyu's estimate). Ginyu attacks with a Milky Cannon, which Goku dodges. Goku attacks from above with a kick, which Ginyu dodges. The pair again spar before taking to the air, where Ginyu quickly realizes that Goku is faster than him. Despite this, Goku is distracted by a blast from another direction, allowing Ginyu to capture him in a Full Nelson. The shooter of this blast is revealed to be Jeice.
However, a clearly upset Ginyu releases Goku just before he plans on using his Kaio-ken technique. Ginyu angrily tells Jeice not to interfere in the battle again or he will kill him. He then tells Goku to use his full strength, as he can tell that Goku has been concealing it. Goku tells Ginyu to watch the reading on his scouter. Ginyu now predicts that Goku's maximum power level is 85,000. Much to his surprise, however, when Goku powers up using the Kaio-ken, his power level soars in excess of 110,000 and is still rising.
