Awaken Darkness (手に入れろ!謎の超神水 Te ni Irero! Nazo no Choshinsui) is the fourteenth episode of the King Piccolo Saga and the one hundred fifteenth episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on June 8, 1988.



Darkness Ice Monster

At King Castle, Piano antagonizes King Piccolo's enslaved subjects. On Korin Tower, Korin tells Goku that the Ultra Divine Water is hidden deep in an icy labyrinth, where many have perished while trying to find it. Yajirobe does not want to go, but accidentally goes in the same portal that Goku enters soon after; Korin warns him about Darkness. As Goku fights an indestructible ice monster, Darkness awakens. Yajirobe and Goku escape sliding down a long twisty path.

At King Castle, Suno is very tempted to shoot King Piccolo with a rifle, but knows how unwise it is. In the Cave of Darkness, Darkness has something sinister in store for Goku and Yajirobe.

Major Events

  • Goku and Yajirobe (on accident) go to find the Ultra Divine Water.


  • It is shown in this episode that King Piccolo wants food, but it is revealed later, in Dragon Ball Z, that Namekians do not need to eat. It can be assumed that he eats for the pleasure, not for survival.
