Yamcha zooms in on the Jet Squirrel with Pu'ar and introduces himself to Son Goku and Oolong, while Bulma sleeps nearby in the shade, oblivious. Oolong and Pu'ar recognize each other immediately from shape-shifting school, where Pu'ar reveals that he picked on him until he was expelled for stealing the teacher's panties.

Oolong gets Son Goku to fight Yamcha, instead of willingly handing over their stuff. Yamcha draws his sword and attacks Son Goku, who retaliates using his extendable staff. Recognizing the legendary weapon, Yamcha asks Son Goku who trained him. Son Goku divulges that it was his grandfather, Son Gohan. Yamcha acknowledges Son Gohan as a martial arts master and even Oolong admits he's heard of him.

The battle continues and Yamcha decimates Son Goku using his trademark technique, the Fist of the Wolf Fang Gale, knocking him into a pile of rocks. Oolong turns into a fly to escape, but Pu'ar retaliates by turning into a fly swatter, knocking him down. Oolong hands over his emergency capsule, a Size M Capsule, which Yamcha deems as very valuable. However as they're about to leave, Son Goku emerges from the rubble complaining about how hungry he is.


Son Goku knocks Yamcha down with his Janken attack, punching his fist, poking his eyes and smacking him into the rubble. Yamcha becomes enraged and charges at Son Goku, only to spot a waking Bulma, who's beauty makes him stop dead in his tracks. He collapses from sheer infatuation and then flees on the Jet Squirrel with Pu'ar, threatening to return to finish what he started.

Bulma expresses her attraction to Yamcha, while he returns to his Lair and discusses his weakness for women with Pu'ar.


  • This is the first chapter that Bulma and Yamcha meet, beginning their long lived romance.
