- This article is about the technique. For the decision-making game, see Rock-paper-scissors.
|Rock, Scissors 'N' Paper|
|Alternate names||Jan ken Fist|
|Debut||"The Nimbus Cloud of Roshi"|
In the original version, the user shouts "Jan Ken", then a name corresponding to the attack: "Gu", equals rock and will be a strong punch. "Chyoki", equals scissors and will be a poke in the eyes. "Pa", equals paper and will be an open palm strike. In censored dubs of Dragon Ball, the scissor part is cut.
Goku first uses this move against the Bear Thief that wanted to eat Master Roshi's friend, Turtle. Goku then uses it on Yamcha in the Diablo Desert. In the final match of the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, Goku says "paper" when he actually uses rock, which confuses Jackie Chun. Goku continues to use the technique up to his first fight with General Blue.
Appearances in Video GamesEdit
