He's the only East Kaioh's student to reach the quarter-finals in the Ano-yo Tenkaichi Budokai, where he has to fight Goku.

A short and powerful girl with purple hair and glasses, Arale is another character created by the mangaka Akira Toriyama. She's protagonist of " Dr. Slump and Arale-chan" manga and briefly appears in Dragon Ball vol.7 during the Red Ribbon saga, where she meets Goku for the first time.


Atla is the Prince of Planet Arlia, imprisoned by the cruel dictatorship King Moai who steals his beloved bride, Lemlia. When Vegeta and Nappa arrives on the planet and quickly destroyed King Moai and all his guards, Atla thinks to have back his throne and reunite with his Lemlia, but his dreams are broken by Vegeta who disintegrates the entire planet. However Atla is a character appearing only in the anime.


He's an evil wizard, whose only aim is to revenge his father's death. Son of the dark mage Bibidi, who created Majin Bu, Babidi comes to Earth to reawaken the evil being that his father had closed into a sphere. He has the ability to bend to his will, people who have evil in their hearts; so he controls first Dabura's mind and after Vegeta's mind to take the evil energy to break Buu's seal. He's killed by Majin Buu himself, tired to obey his orders.


This character only appears in DBGT episodes; Baby's a parasite being who owns the genes of Tsufuru-jin King, a modern civilization that lived on the planet called "Plant", before it was wiped out by Saiyans invasion. By wandering the space, he grows and becomes like a fetus. Then, since he needs someone that picks up the energy for growing, Baby creates Dr. Miuu. In order to kill him, Goku, Pan and Trunks hit Baby when he's still at the larva stage, but the being survives by taking possession of Dr. Miuu's body. He gets energy from other creatures and reaches a more mature stage. Baby temporarily takes possession of Trunks too and leaves his egg inside the Saiyan's body so he will be able to control him later; then he arrives on the Earth to wait for Goku. Baby's targets are two: rebuilding the Tsufuru-jin Planet and taking revenge on Saiya-jin.


When comes on Earth, Baby first takes possession of Goten, then of Gohan and eventually of Vegeta, the saiyan he's looking for because he wanna face Goku by using his power. Vegeta's body shows different mutations: on the face and in the eyes, they appear some lines, hair becomes white and then lengthens, and on his shoulders some strange bony prominences sprout. After having eliminated Goku, thanks to the spheres, he makes to revive the Planet of Tsufuru. Helped by Bulma, who hurls at him the Brute waves, he turns Ohzaru Gold and Goku SSJ4, to succeed in defeating him, hits him making him loose the tail. In this way Baby-Vegeta loses his transformation in Ohzaru and the parasite Baby is forced to leave Vegeta's body and to run away; but Goku SSJ4 destroys his spaceship with a very powerful Kamehameha.


He's a participant to the 21st Tenkaichi Budokai, where he has to face Kuririn. Bacterian has the peculiarity of defeating his opponents with his horrible smell because he's never washed himself since he was born. At first Kuririn is in trouble too, but, when Goku remembers him he has no nose and so can't feel Bacterian's smell, he recovers and easily defeats him. Later Bacterian will be eliminated by Tamborine as ordered by Piccolo Daimao.


He's the father of Goku and looks like him, except a deep scar Bardock has got on the left cheek. He's the main character in DBZ TV Special #1 "Bardock: The Father of Goku" where it is told about his story. After having conquered another planet for Freeza' account, he's attacked by the last surviving member of Kanassa, who hits Bardock on the back of the head giving him the ability to see the future. So he makes the connection of what is going to happen: Freeza is preparing a plan to destroy the Saiya-jin. Since the other members of his race don't believe him, Bardock decides to take matters into his own hands, and attacks Freeza by himself; but he can nothing against the attack of his opponent that destroys Panet Vegeta and all Saiya-jin (In reality someone still survives...). He is killed too, but, before dying, has one final vision of the future where his son, Kakaroth, would be the one to destroy Freeza.


He's the injured little dog that Majin Buu finds and heals. This puppy has a very important role in Majin Buu's sharing into two beings: when he's dropped with one shot by two villains, Buu is staring forward in intent confusion. When Satan notices Bee is not yet dead, the pink monster rushes over and heals the dog again. But soon Majin Buu gets mad when the villains shoot Satan in the back with a pistol. Before he blows off some steam and his anger gives life to an evil thin Buu, he manages to tell Satan to take the dog and escape, so Bee becomes the World Champion faithful puppy.


He's the powerful and evil magician who created the demon being known as Buu, to gain control of the entire universe. His creature manages even to defeat four of five Kaiohshins (two of them have been absorbed) and the same Bibidi can't control him anymore. Then Bibidi closes Majin Bu into a sphere and takes him on Earth, his next target. And it's just at this time that the last surviving Kaiohshin, the East Kaiohshin, kills him.


One of Bojack's henchmen in DBZ movie #9. Just like for his companions, his past is unknown. When Gohan turns SSJ2, Bojack orders him to stop the saiyan, but Bido is easily eliminated by a punch that breaks his body in two.


They are warriors created in a laboratory of genetic engineering by order of Jagar Badda, in DBZ movie #11 "A Super-Warrior Defeat!! I am the Winner". Jaggar wants to use them to fight against Satan, to gain his revenge on him. But the World Champion "invites" Android #18 (his "student") to fight the bio-warriors for him; soon Goten and Trunks join with her and together easily defeat them.


He's the second of Commander Red of Red Ribbon Army and helps him in the quest of Dragon Balls, thinking he wants to use them to wish for world domination. When he hears from Red's voice, that he really just wants to wish to be taller, Black shoots him; then takes over the Red Ribbon Army and attacks Goku by driving a super robot (Battle Jacket), but he's easily defeated by the young hero.


One of the generals of Red Ribbon Army, Blue is given the job to gather the Dragon Balls and kill Goku by the Commander Red. He's incredibly strong and, unlike the other leaders, he likes to use his hands rather than his troops. Blue is well-built, but probably gay, a very fussy dresser and has a special psychical capability: looking into his opponent's eyes, Blue paralyzes him. By using this form of hypnosis, he's almost killing Goku, if it wasn't for a mouse running out... Blue recoils with horror and so the spell on Goku is broken. When Blue comes back to Red Ribbon headquarters, he's forced by Commander Red to fight the killer Tao Bai Bai who kills him using only his tongue.


He's the main villain in DBZ movie #9 " The Galaxy's in Danger!! The Super Awesome Guy". Bojack wears a bandanna on his orange hair and his skin is a blue-green color. He comes on Earth with his four henchmen and takes over a martial arts contest where beats on the Z Warriors. Is a very strong demon and only Gohan, as Super Saiyan II, is able to defeat him, helped by the father who teleports himself from afterlife. Bojack is pierced by a very powerful punch and definitely killed by a kamehameha.


He's the big Indian protecting the Seichi Karin holy grounds, and is the father of Upa. Bora is very strong and when Yellow and his men are demanding his Dragon Ball, the Indian warns the invaders that he'll kill them to protect his land. He becomes friend with Goku who rescues his little son Upa from Red Ribbon Army. Later Bora is killed by the cruel Tao Bai Bai, but Goku, in front of a crying Upa, vows to get all of the Dragon Balls to make a wish to bring Bora to life. When Bora was younger, he tries to climb Karin's tower too, without result.


She is Vegeta and Bulma's daughter, Trunks' little sister. Bra appears the first time at the end of Majin Buu Saga when she is a child and we'll meet her in Dragon Ball GT as a nice girl who looks like Bulma in the first Dragon Ball series. Even if she's half-Saiyan, doesn't show any skills as a fighter, but the same it seems she has ascendency over her father! In fact, it's thanks to her that Vegeta takes his mustache off in DBGT! ^__^


She's the daughter of the owner of Capsule Corporation, and is a genius with all sorts of electronic machines, both alien and domestic. Bulma is the Dragon Radar's inventor, a device that can locate the Dragon Balls wherever they are. Second character to be introduced into Dragon Ball, she appears in all three series, and from a nice teenager with light purple eyes and hair (light blue in the anime), we'll see her showing many different looks during the Dragon Ball adventures. After a stormy flirt with Yamcha, she falls in love with Vegeta and has two children with him, Trunks and Bra. Although after Cell's death their union becomes permanent and Vegeta lives with her at the Capsule Corporation, it doesn't know if they are really married!


Bulma's father and founder of the Capsule Corporation, Dr. Brief is a genius who created many handy devices and sorts of electronic machines that Bulma uses during her adventures. He's also the inventor of those famous Hoi-Poi capsules from wich everything in the series is spawned, of the spaceship used by Goku travelling to Namek and of the gravity room used by Vegeta for his training! During the Cell Saga, Dr. Brief helps Bulma to repair Android #16 and remove the explosive device inside his body, before Cell Games. We'll often see him accompanied by a little black cat and used as a comic relief.


Bulma's mother and Dr. Brief' wife, she is impeccably nice to everyone even if she's described as fatuous. Mr. and Mrs. Brief live at the Capsule Corporation with many animals they love very much and also when Majin Buu eliminates all the earthlings, they refuse to leave them alone. However is a character.


He's the main character of DBZ movie #8 "Burnout!! Fierce Fight, Violent Fight, Super-Exciting Fight" where is the legendary Super Saiyan! Broly is born in Planet Vegeta the same day Goku is! He is traumatized by the constant crying of his crib mate, Goku, and develops an instinctual hatred of him. King Vegeta, afraid of his high potential even as a baby, looks at him as a danger and tries to kill him. Thanks to his awesome power, Broly manages to survive with his father who, years later, gets to take control on him by a command device. So, under his father's command, Broly begins his rampage through the universe. When he meets Goku, his grudge against him reveals. He fights against all the Z Warriors, knocking them out, but at the end he'll be defeated by Goku, who will absorb the energy of the other warriors. It seems he's dead but it isn't so! We meet Broly again in DBZ movie #10, where he comes to Planet Earth, after his escape from Planet Neo-Vegeta before explosion, and is finally killed; then he makes his third appearance in DBZ movie #11 as a clone.


He's one of two North Kaioh's pets, indeed, the only one in the manga, because Gregory, the cricket, only appears in the anime. Bubbles, a very fast monkey, is used by North Kaioh as a preliminary test before starting his personal martial arts training of Goku.


Between Bojack's henchmen in DBZ movie #9, Bujin is the most psychicly powerfu, so he's able to immobilize Trunks and Gohan. He's easily defeated by Gohan SSJ2 who kills him with a kick that breacks hin in two.


He's the leader of the kids travelling in the mirror ship that Kuririn, Bulma and Gohan accidently meet during their travel to NameK. Really these kids are all orphans whose parents have been killed by Freeza's men. At first, Bun and the others attack Kuririn, Bulma and Gohan too, believing them as Freeza's henchmen, but later become friends with them.


He is the faster member of the Ginyu Force and he believes to be the fastest in the Universe! But Goku easily defeats him because he's become faster than him after training at 100x gravity travelling to Namek . Butter usually teaming up with Jheet for his attacks , he is still a successful fighter alone.
See Ginyu Force.


He's a being of an amazing wickedness... Even his creator, the magician Bibidi, isn't able to control him. After he absorbs the Dai Kaiohshin, it acquires some rationality and becomes the Fat Majin Buu. Unlike most absorbtions, the Dai Kaioshin maintains some control over Buu that now is less powerful than his original form. When Goku and Vegeta, inside the body of the new Super Buu, free the imprisoned Fat Buu, Super Buu changes and comes back to True Buu form. He is unimaginable strength fighter, neither Goku nor Vegeta can defeat him... This only will happen thanks to the help of all Earthlings, who give Goku the needed energy to form the Genkidama (Spirit Bomb) that will destroy him.


When the evil being created by Bibidi (called True Buu or Kid Buu) absorbs the Dai Kaiohshin, who is fat, very kind and calm, the god becomes a permanent part of Buu and makes him fat in appearance and less insane than before. Fat Buu is the good part of Majin Buu who divides himself from the wicked part, when Mr. Satan is seriously wounded by two thugs. However, he is defeated by his bad counterpart that transforms him into chocolate and eats him, generating a new Majin Bu (Super Buu). In the end of the Saga Fat Buu fights against Kid Buu and, when, after the death of this last, they wish, with the Dragon Balls, to cancel from Earthlings' memory his misdeeds, he goes to live with Mr. Satan. We also find him in DBGT where he will unite to his reincarnation, Uub.


Super Buu is born when the Thin Bu, the purely wicked part of Majin Buu, eats the Fat Buu just transformed into chocolate. The good personality of the Fat Buu does not have as much influence over the host, since he's imprisoned inside his body rather than sharing it with the evil counterpart. Super Buu is nastier and surely more stronger than the previous Majin Buu. He becomes even more powerful when absorbs Gotenks SSJ3, Piccolo and Mystic Gohan, and he will be able to perform all their techniques! Only the Fusion with Potara earrings between Goku and Vegeta will be stronger than him!


When Majin Buu becomes friend of Mr. Satan, he promises him he never kills anybody. But when two thugs shoot to the World's Champion, hurting him almost to death, Majin Buu gets so angry that his anger releases the most wicked part in him, that forms another Majin Buu. This Thin Buu is formed by pure wickedness and is stronger than his good half; therefore he soon defeates the Buu of pure innocence and eats him in chocolate form, generating the new Super Buu.


He's one of the competitors in the Anoyo's Tenkaichi Budokai. He's from the South Galaxy and has to face Goku. He seems not to have any special power and in fact he tries to defeat Goku by tickling him. When Catapy realizes that he will not succeed in doing it, he decides to transform himself by using a metamorphosis; but this complete change needs somewhat like 1200 years, so, because no one can wait such a long time, Catapy is declared to be the loser.


Cyborg created by Dr. Gelo and his computer that elaborates the data picked up by small robots as bees, that before extracted the cells of the best and most powerful living warriors. Thus Cell contains in his body the cells of Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo... but also of Freezer and of his father. When he arrives on the Earth from the future, Cell is in egg form: he has degenerated himself in this form in order to be able to go into Trunks' Time machine. He needs three years underground to get his mutation and come out of the egg. Then he begins to absorb the vital essences from humans to create new energy he needs for his growth. But to become the perfect being he needs to absorb the androids #17 and #18 which he doesn't succeed in individualizing in his time.


The computer of Dr. Gelo informs Cell that, by absorbing #17 and # 18, he can get an unimaginable strength! Cell reaches the two cyborgs while #17 is fighting against Piccolo (who has already assimilated Kami-sama to face Cell). By now the monster absorbed a lot of vital energy, by killing many human beings, so much that Piccolo is not able to succeed in opposing him and is defeated. Also Android #16 tries to stop him, but with no result: #17 is caught and absorbed, allowing the monster to reach the second stage of his transformation. Now he looks, at least in the face, less monstrous and more human than before and is very strong but nothing can do against the new power of Vegeta Super Saiyan Dai Ni Dankai. The Prince of Saiyans lets him free to absorb Android #18 to compare himself with the perfect being.


Even if Trunks, facing his father Vegeta, tries stop him, Cell with a Taiyoken blinds everyone and absorbs #18, becoming so the perfect being. To show his new power, Cell holds the Cell Games, where he challenges anyone in the world to fight him, or else the Earth would be destroyed. Neither Goku can defeat him and gives up! It will be Gohan, at Super Saiyan II level, to face him. But Cell threatens to destroy himself involving the Earth in the explosion; so Goku teleports himself with Cell on the Planet of king Kaioh. Cell regenerates himsels after the explosion and comes back on the Earth, stronger than ever. This time Gohan definitely eliminates him with the help of his father who exhorts him from the afterlife.


Each Cell Jr. is a creature of Cell that spawns seven of them from his tail. The Cell Juniors look like him and are formidable fighters, created in the same number of the Z warriors at Cell Games, except Gohan, to force this last to show his true power. During the fight with their opponents, the seven creatures use the same techniques, that Cell has learned from the Z Warriors, to repeatedly strike them, but then they easily are eliminated by Gohan SSJ2.


He's one of the contenders in the 21st Tenkaichi, defeated by Goku. He is the first user of the Hasshuken technique (8 hands attack).


He's one of the competitors in the Anoyo's Tenkaichi Budokai. He's from the East Galaxy and has to fight Olive. Short but very fast, Chapuchai tries to put his opponent in trouble by using the split-form technique. Olive manages to defeat him by causing his forms all to crash into each other.


Gyuu-Mao's daughter, first meets Goku when they are children. She meets him again at the 23 Tenkaichi tournament and marries him at the end of first Dragon Ball series. With Goku she has two sons, first Gohan and then Goten. Chichi is a worrisome mother and would like Gohan to quit fight and just study. Although Goku is the strongest warrior in the Universe... Chichi is able to frighten him! ^__-


He's the evil dragon of the 7 Star Dragon Ball (Chishinchu) born when Bulma wished to revive everybody died in 25th Tenkaichi tournament's day, but evils. Chishinlon looks like a giant mole but his true aspect is just like the 7 Star Dragon Ball! He has the ability to absorb other creatures so he can increase his power. Chishinlon will absorb Pan too (and he'll become Super Chishinlon) so Goku will not attack him at full power. Although he seems stupid, he's really clever!


She's a character appearing in DBZ movie #10 "The Dangerous Pair!! Super-Warriors Never Rest". Coco is a kid living in Natade Village who decides to sacrifice herself to calm the monster that terrorizes her village. Actually the monster is a big dinosaur and it will be Videl, Goten and Trunks that see the thing by themselves, before to meet Broly.


He's Freeza's father and comes on Earth with his son, now Metal Freezer, in order to take their revenge on the Super Saiyan. He will be killed by Future Trunks.


Freeza's brother and villain protagonist of DBZ movie #5. Since he learned that a saiyan defeated his brother , travels to Earth, where this one lives, with his henchmen to eliminate Goku. Although he's able to obtain a fourth transformation, one more than his brother, Cooler is defeated from the Super Saiyan who kills him by throwing him towards the Sun. He comes back, this time as Metal Cooler, in DBZ movie #6, where he tells that his body was rebuilt by the high technology of the Giant Ghetti Star which is also able to produce hundred and hundred clones of him. At the end, the Giant Ghetti Star and all the Metal Cooler's robots are defeated by Goku with Vegeta's help.


He's a scientist who makes experiments inside the bio-engineering laboratory owned by Jagar Badda, in DBZ movie #11 "A Super-Warrior Defeat!! I am the Winner".


This being was born from an egg of dragon-warrior spit out by Piccolo Daimao in order to gather the Dragon Balls. He's eliminated by Yajirobe who slices him and eats his meat.
