The Demon King of Old... Restored! (若がえるか！？ピッコロ大魔王 Waka Gaeru ka!? Pikkoro Daimaō, lit. "Youth Restored!? Great Demon King Piccolo") is the one hundred forty-seventh chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. This chapter's anime counterpart is the last portion of the episode "Roshi's Gambit" and the first half of the episode "King Piccolo's Wish".
Having finally obtained all seven Dragon Balls, King Piccolo triumphantly announces that he will wish for youth. Piano and the Pilaf Gang celebrate on the airship. Tien is surprised to hear Piccolo's intention. Piccolo summons Shenron, and the sky grows dark. The dragon emerges, and the sight leaves everyone there in awe, including Piccolo.
Realizing that they must act, Tien uses telepathy to tell Chiaotzu his plan: when Piccolo begins to make his wish, Chiaotzu will quickly make their wish first. Just as Piccolo begins to make his wish, Chiaotzu jumps out and interrupts him. Before he can finish saying the wish, however, Piccolo kills him with a single blast. Shenron asks Piccolo what his wish is, and Piccolo quickly states it. Shenron says it is a simple thing to do, and Piccolo is rapidly restored to the prime of his youth. Piccolo exults in his new power. Goku and Yajirobe notice that the sky is now dark, and Goku realizes that the dragon has been summoned. Just then, Yajirobe spots Korin Tower up ahead.
