Match No. 1 (第1試合, Daīchi Shiai) is the thirty-sixth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. Its anime counterpart is the second half of the episode "Smells Like Trouble".


The cover page features Krillin and Bacterian, the fighters in the first match. Below their boxes are the other six fighters, who's battles are in later chapters.


The chapter begins with the announcer telling the audience that the winner will receive 500,000 zeni. He then announces the first match of the tournament: Krillin vs. Bacterian.

As the match begins, Bacterian makes the first attacks, which Krillin easily evades. Bacterian uses disgusting tactics to defeat Krillin, such as burping and touching him after touching his privates. While Krillin falls down in disgust, the announcer begins the countdown; to force him to stay down, Bacterian farts on his opponent's face. As the count nears ten, Goku forces Krillin to realize that he has no nose, so he cannot smell his gross opponent. With renewed confidence, Krillin attacks his opponent, then farts in his face, defeating him.
