Antique Shop
Goku meeting Mai and Pilaf in the Antique Shop.

Son Goku is still searching for the Four-Star Ball. Meanwhile, Pilaf is having terrifying flashbacks of Goku destroying his castle. Some poor little punk comes along and steals all of Goku's clothes, pole, backpack, and Dragon Radar. Goku comes out of the water looking for his stuff and realizes it has been stolen. He calls the Kinto Un and flies around naked on it. Goku cannot find the thief because of the thick forest. He decided to tell his Power Pole to extend until it was taller than the trees. The thief freaks and leaves all but the Dragon Radar.

The thief goes into town and pawns off the Dragon Radar to a pawn shop owner. Pilaf is in town, and buys a Four-Star Ball from the pawn shop. Goku comes into the pawn shop and takes his Dragon Radar back. He then chases Pilaf for his Four-Star Ball (Grandpa Son Gohan). Pilaf flies away in his air ship.

The Red Ribbon Army comes into the pawn shop shortly after that and also gets a Four-Star Dragon Ball. The Pawn shop dealer has a box filled with fake four star Dragon Balls in the back room. They know it's fake and when Colonel Silver drops it, it breaks into several pieces. The radar is actually reacting to the Six-Star Ball in a Seagull's nest on top of the pawn shop. The Red Ribbon Army is angered, so they kill the owner of the shop. We see a close-up of the mysterious leader of the Red Ribbon Army. Pilaf also realizes his Dragon Ball is fake after he also drops his and it shatters.
