"They are nothing but stones now. And the dragon is dead. My enemies are vanquished. No one will ever challenge me again. It is perfect. I have been reborn."
King Piccolo after his wish for youth was granted.

King Piccolo's Wish (若がえるか!?ピッコロ大魔王 Wakagaeru ka!? Pikkoro Daimao) is the eleventh episode of the King Piccolo Saga and the one hundred twelfth episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on May 18, 1988.


Chiaotzu dying

Chiaotzu killed by King Piccolo

Chiaotzu tries to thwart King Piccolo's wish, but gets killed instead. King Piccolo makes his wish and becomes younger. Before Shenron can disperse, King Piccolo kills him with a Mouth Energy Wave, so that no one else could use the Dragon Balls against him. King Piccolo intends to target the Kingdom of Chow; King Furry is the ruler there, and is a kind-hearted person. Tien Shinhan intends to use the Evil Containment Wave on King Piccolo. Emperor Pilaf tries to request his reward for helping King Piccolo, but King Piccolo dumps him, Mai, and Shu off the ship. Yajirobe and Goku finally reach Korin Tower and are greeted by Bora and Upa.


  • King Piccolo's wish later spawned Nuova Shenron in Dragon Ball GT.
  • By killing Shenron, King Piccolo may have saved the world from the release of the Shadow Dragons from the Dragon Balls, which will later reveal in Dragon Ball GT.
  • The wish Tien asks Chiaotzu to make to Shenron before King Piccolo is to make King Piccolo disappear forever. If Chiaotzu would have asked the dragon for this wish, Shenron probably would not have had the power to grant it as revealed in Counting Down / A Black Day for Planet Earth. This also would have rendered the Dragon Balls unusable from that point onward, due to life link that they and King Piccolo shared with Kami.
  • This marks the first time Chiaotzu dies in the series.
