The Hopes of a Planet (元気玉の行方！！, Genki-Dama no Yukue!!; lit. "The Energy Sphere's Path!!") is the two hundred thirty-eighth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. The chapter's anime counterpart is the second half of the episode "Krillin's Offensive".
As Vegeta manages to dodge the Spirit Bomb, all hope seems to be lost. However, Goku telepathically contacts his son, Gohan, and tells him to bounce the Spirit Bomb as he does have a pure heart. Gohan bounces it back and directly hits Vegeta. As the Z Fighters celebrate their seeming victory, Vegeta shows that he is alive and even manages to stand up. He slaps Krillin aside and states that, once he kills all of them, he will destroy Earth.
