Final Showdown (最後の賭け!!, Saigo no Kake!!) is the twenty-first episode of the King Piccolo Saga and the one hundred twenty-second episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on August 10, 1988.
Sensing he is in a losing battle, King Piccolo resorts to a cowardice, threatening to kill an exhausted Tien Shinhan, if Goku moves a muscle. Yamcha reaches the place and lands his plane. Yajirobe has also arrived to watch Goku fight, hesitating whether he should or should not fight. Upon discovering that King Piccolo killed Shenron, Goku resigns himself to endure repetitive pains getting his limbs crippled. With Goku incapacitated, King Piccolo prepares to finish him off, but Goku uses his full power in his right fist using a one-handed Kamehameha to propel himself at King Piccolo with great speed and punching a hole through King Piccolo's torso. Seconds before King Piccolo's death, he uses the last of his energy to create his final offspring. Yajirobe saves Goku from falling to his death and retrieves Tien. Tien is motivated to train better than ever.
