"This young man's brain is just sweating out seriousness. All this time and he hasn't smiled once. Everyone else here is fighting for fun, or for the title at most, but not this guy. There's something more to him."
— Master Roshi is trying to make sense of Nam

Quarterfinals Continue (ヤムチャVSジャッキーチュン, Yamucha Tai Jakkii Chun; lit. "Yamcha vs Jackie Chun") is the twenty-second episode of Dragon Ball and the ninth episode of the Tournament Saga.


The next fight is Yamcha vs. Jackie Chun (a.k.a. Master Roshi in disguise). Yamcha stands still in the ring waiting for Jackie Chun to arrive. Bulma is in the crowd (along with Puar and Oolong), intrigued by Jackie Chun, even though she has not seen him yet. As soon as she sees him, she called him a crusty old man and begins to cheer for Yamcha.


Yamcha battling Jackie Chun in the 2nd match of the quarterfinals

Yamcha unleashes an array of attacks at Jackie Chun. Jackie Chun dodges all of the attacks without a problem. Yamcha goes for his powerful Wolf Fang Fist, but it is dodged quickly by Jackie Chun to everyone's amazement. Jackie Chun, then lightly claps his hands and a wave of energy emerges and launches Yamcha out of the ring and onto the arena floor. This gives Jackie Chun the win by ring-out. Krillin and Goku are shocked that Yamcha was so easily defeated. Krillin is scared since, he is facing Jackie Chun in the next round.


Ranfan nearly pushing Nam out of the ring

The next match is between Nam and Ranfan. Nam is a man who thinks he needs to win the prize money to buy water for his poor village. Ranfan is a seductive woman, who used her feminine wiles to defeat her opponents, but she is also a skilled fighter. Nam does not want to hit a girl, he will if he must. By the end of the match, Ranfan has stripped to just her undergarments. Nam gets distracted by this, but realizes he needs to win for his village. By closing his eyes, he can't see her and with a single attack, knocks her unconscious, and wins the match.

Visual edits

Scenes removed

  • Ranfan's stripping was removed in the Toonami broadcasting. Instead, the scene of one of Nam's failed attacks is shown followed by her twitching foot to show she was knocked out. This is strangely not edited in the recaps in later episodes, which clearly shows her in her underwear.


  • In the Tournament Saga DVD set, this episode is listed as "Quarterfinals Begin" in the episode selection menu, while the episode's title card reads "Quarterfinals Continue".
  • Version 2 of the ending theme starts here, and will be used until The Fallen. It was the only version of the ending used by FUNimation.
