Goku and Krillin start their semi-final match in the World Martial Arts Tournament. After several minutes of fighting, they seem evenly matched. Goku jumps high in the air, and Krillin follows him. The Sun reflects off of Krillin's bald head and blinds Goku, allowing Krillin to kick him to the ground.
Goku somehow lands on his feet and attacks Krillin as he falls. Krillin sucks in some air, causing him to inflate like a balloon and float, thus throwing off Goku's timing.
Meanwhile, while the two spirited youths battle on, Tien Shinhan confronts Master Roshi to ask him why he quit the match. Master Roshi tells Tien that he is not a killer, even though he acts like it. He says that Tien has a conscience, and this will make him into a hero. Tien tries to ignore Roshi's teachings, and promises to kill Goku, just to prove him wrong.
