Counting Controversy!! (逆転!!クリリンの8でんネ大作戦 Gyakuten!! Kuririn no Paaden ne Daisakusen) is the eighth episode of the Tien Shinhan Saga and the ninety-first episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on December 9, 1987.
On the last episode, Krillin started his fight with Chiaotzu. At the end of the episode, Chiaotzu started to form a Dodon Ray and Krillin was charging a Kamehameha. They charge up both of their attacks, with Chiaotzu firing the Dodon Ray and Krillin dodging it. The blast creates a smokescreen and, when it clears, Krillin is gone. Suddenly, Krillin appears behind Chiaotzu and blasts the Kamehameha right at him. Chiaotzu goes flying backwards in a spiral, but he uses his flying technique right before he hits the ground.
When he gets back to the ring Krillin lands a couple of good punches. Chiaotzu starts to do his special technique where he spins around and flies at Krillin head first. Krillin gets hit by it a couple of times and tries it himself, but he was not good at it. Chiaotzu does it a couple more times he misses and slams into the ground and Krillin also holds Chiaotzu's head so he could not attack.
Chiaotzu has another attack were he holds out his hands and makes Krillin feel like his stomach is on fire. Krillin can not take it and gets beaten up a lot. Eventually, he figures out how to stop him. He tells Chiaotzu to add and subtract numbers so he use his hands to count and his stomach would not hurt. Krillin does and hits Chiaotzu right out of the ring.
In the night after the match, Master Shen attempts to kill Goku. Tien Shinhan sees Master Shen leaving his bed and follows him secretly. Shen finds Goku asleep and tries to kill him, but Goku then defends himself. Tien arrives, holds Shen back, and promises him to kill Goku while fighting in the World Martial Arts Tournament, infront of Goku's master, Roshi.
