The 10 Count (10カウント, Ten Kaunto; lit. "Ten Count") is one hundred ninety-first chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. The chapter's anime counterpart is the majority of the second half of the episode "Goku Hangs On".


The cover shows Bulma, Kami, Master Roshi, Launch, Krillin, Goku, Piccolo, the World Tournament Announcer, Chi-Chi, Tien Shinhan, Yamcha, Oolong and Puar in boxes.


Goku tells Piccolo that he is used up all of his ki with that, and so now the victory is Goku's. Goku then performs the Meteor Combination: he charges up a bit and rushes at Piccolo elbowing him in the face, and then also kicks him in the face, causing Piccolo to cough up some blood. Then Goku delivers a hard punch to the gut, and then flies up into the air. Goku fires a huge Kamehameha down at Piccolo, and it is a direct hit.

Piccolo's Mouth Energy Wave

Piccolo fires a Mouth Energy Wave

Goku touches back down in the ring area, standing next to the big crater he made, with Piccolo down in the center. The World Tournament Announcer runs over to make the count, asking if Piccolo is dead. But he is obviously not, since Kami is still alive. Everyone thinks it is over, until Piccolo sits up at the count of nine, and fires a Mouth Energy Wave up at Goku, piercing through his shoulder.
