The Devilmite Beam (必殺アクマイト光線とは!? Hissatsu Akumaitokesen to wa!? lit. "Certain Death from the Devil's Power Beam!?") is the sixth episode of the Fortuneteller Baba Saga and the seventy-third episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on August 5, 1987.
Bandages the Mummy feels a bit hesitant to fight Goku, upon seeing his impecable posture. Nevertheless, he attacks after Goku declares that he's about to make the first move. He lands three hits on Goku, causing the young warrior to fall. Goku's friends get worried, while Bandages and Baba are delighted, believing Goku to have been knocked out. Goku, however, easily gets up and reveals that he was just warming up. Bandages, enraged, continues attacking, but Goku easily dodges his moves and makes jokes, which only makes the Mummy angrier. Baba's warrior then prepares a powerful attack, launching his bandages towards Goku, binding him. After a long struggle, Goku jumps down just beyond the deadly toilet water and breaks free. Goku defeats the mummy with a single punch.
Goku's next opponent is a demon called Spike the Devil Man. Spike seems easy to beat and he nearly falls in the toilet. While Yamcha and Krillin comment about how weak Spike is, Master Roshi corrects them, saying that he was a two-time champion of the World Martial Arts Tournament. After being on the losing end of the battle, Spike prepares to use his Devilmite Beam to finish Goku and Roshi tries to tell Goku to avoid it at all costs.
- Krillin claims that Goku has never been defeated before, although this is untrue on two accounts: the first being Goku's defeat at Jackie Chun's hands and the second being his defeat at the hands of Mercenary Tao; although Krillin did not know of the second, he had witnessed the first with his own eyes.
- Although the tongues of the two Devil statues usually meet, there is a gap between them during the course of this episode (as seen in the title card). During the next episode the gap is gone.
