* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', during the 23rd Woerld Tournamant, "Ma Jr." receives ClothingDamage and his turban is destroyed. The audience begin to murmur among themselves about the appearance of the contestant, until (Bad) Lunch points out he looks like the original Piccolo. At this point, "Ma Jr."/Piccolo Jr. is sick of the squabbling, and angrily confirms that he's the original Piccolo's son, and vows of re-TakeOverTheWorld. Naturally, the entire crowd takes off, leaving behind Goku's allies in the stadium...[[NervesOfSteel and the narrator]].
