Whisker Power (悟空もドッカン!!おヒゲパワー全開, Goku mo Dokkan!! Ohige Pawa Zenkai) is the eighth episode of the Black Star Dragon Ball Saga and the eighth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. The episode first aired on April 17, 1996. Its original American air date was March 19, 2005.
Not bowing to the demands of the wicked Zoonama, Trunks reluctantly poses as Zoonama's "bride" in an attempt to sneak deep into the monster's lair under a volcano and free the people of the village forever. Trunks' wig falls off, and Zoonama still is interested in Trunks, thinking he is a short haired girl. Trunks then manages to drug Zoonama with spiked food at the "Wedding Banquet" the beast has arranged for them. Zoonama passes out and Doma cuts one of his whiskers off. Zoonama comes to and threatens to cause an earthquake. The troupe soon realizes Zoonama cannot cause quakes, only predict them.
Then, all of a sudden, a real explosion occurs, and Goku uses a Kamehameha to propel them out of the tunnel. He then uses another Kamehameha to destroy the volcano and abrupt the explosion. The Gelboians give them the Black Six-Star Dragon Ball, but out of nowhere, a mysterious stranger disguised as a villager takes the ball and turns into some other species. He then takes the ball and disappears in his spaceship.
- In this episode, Goku destroys a mountain much like Master Roshi did when first showing the Kamehameha in Dragon Ball.
- This episode is based on another Japanese myth, the one about Yamata-no-Orochi: the eight-headed monster snake Yamata-no-Orochi ate 7 of the eight daughters of an old couple. The last one, Kushinada, was to be the next sacrifice. The god Susanowo made Orochi drink Sake that was strong enough to make the snake drunk and then slayed Orochi.
- Despite the fact that Pan is embarassed to see little Goku naked, she still goes swimming with him.
