Junior No More
Junior No More (ピッコロ大魔王超巨身術, Pikkoro Daimao Chokyoshinjutsu) is the twenty-third episode of the Piccolo Jr. Saga and the one hundred forty-fifth episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on February 15, 1989.
The Super Kamehameha blast destroyed much of the fighting complex and, for a while, Piccolo is nowhere to be seen. Then as the smoke clears, his figure is found still above the earth. Much of his clothing and his turban have been scorched away, and he does not look happy in the slightest. Piccolo returns from the air to continue the exchange with Goku. Launch guesses that Piccolo looks like the older King Piccolo, which Piccolo takes as his cue to truly reveal to everyone that he is, in fact, the reincarnation of King Piccolo. Upon hearing this, all of the spectators rush from the arena leaving only Goku and his friends, though this works to Goku's advantage, as he no longer has to worry about innocent bystanders getting hurt.
All of the world is quickly notified of Piccolo's return. The World Tournament Announcer is stunned, for he is now alone with Piccolo, Goku, and all of Goku's friends. Goku tells everyone to leave, quickly. Piccolo then concentrates his energy to turn into a Giant Form of himself. Seems that even though he is considerably larger, Goku still has no problem battling him. He is smacked to the ground and almost stepped on, but Tien Shinhan distracts Piccolo by offering his help. Goku is still under the impression that the match is still going on, that the recent development has not changed anything and he is still following the rules. Goku continues to beat on giant Piccolo, until he shoots his left knee, causing Goku to fall. Piccolo tries to step on Goku, but Goku throws him off. Goku says that Piccolo being so large is only a disadvantage, and to prove him wrong, Piccolo grows even larger. Goku's friends and the announcer finally flee a small distance, but Goku stands his ground.
- Goku vs. Piccolo (Base, Giant)
- When the news caster states that there is a contestant in the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament who is King Piccolo resurrected he should have said reincarnated, though most likely by the time he had gotten word of the news the words were slightly different.
