The Battle is Set!! (対戦決定!!, Taisen Kettei!!) is the thirty-fifth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. Its anime counterpart is the first half of the episode "Smells Like Trouble".


The cover features Goku, Krillin and Yamcha running towards the reader.


The chapter opens with Goku and Krillin running through the labyrinth of people towards Master Roshi, Bulma, Oolong and Puar. They all have a happy reunion, and Goku tells Roshi that they made it into the tournament. As the announcer calls for the eight participants to gather, Roshi runs off, causing Oolong to ponder where he went.

In an undisclosed location, the eight fighters all gather, awaiting further instructions. The announcer arrives and splits them up into groups of two; these pairs will make up the first round of battles. A man named Nam is pitted against a woman named Ranfan (Battle #3), Krillin is put up against a disgusting fighter named Bacterian (Battle #1), Goku is to fight a monster named Giran (Battle #4) and Yamcha against a mysterious name named Jackie Chun (who is really Roshi in disguise; Battle #2). The chapter ends with the announcer about to call the first battle: Krillin v. Bacterian.
