Tail's Tale (まさか悟空!?クリリンの大作戦 Masa Ka Goku!? Kuririn no Daisakusen) is the thirteenth episode of the Tien Shinhan Saga and the ninety-sixth episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on January 13, 1988.
Goku and Krillin continue their fight. Goku runs toward Krillin, creating a Kamehameha wave as he goes. He jumps in the air and uses the wave to blast himself into Krillin. The announcer begins the count, but Krillin gets up, so they continue fighting. Goku gets several powerful hits in on Krillin, who realizes he only has one chance to win. He fires a Kamehameha wave at Goku, who easily blocks it. Suddenly, Krillin appears behind Goku and grabs his tail. Goku passes out and the announcer counting. Before he reaches ten, Goku gets up and slams Krillin to the ground, saying that during the last three years, he worked with his tail until the weakness was gone.
Krillin fools Goku and gets in a cheap shot, causing the two of them to launch into another furious bout. After Krillin hits him again, Goku disappears. He is moving so fast that no one can see him. He suddenly appears next to Krillin and kicks him out of the ring.
