Monsters of Dragonball Z by Steve Fritz

--Witch—Baba—She’s a little more than just Master Roshi’s sister. If the wardrobe, complete with pointy hat, isn’t a dead give away, the crystal ball and ability to tell the future should tell you something. Just remember, not all witches eat children and give pretty girls poisoned apples.

--Dragon—Shenron—Put this under obvious. Just remember that while Akira Toriyama added a few twists of his own Shenron is otherwise a very traditional Asian dragon, not the fire-breathing European type. It’s highly doubtful Shenron will ever keep a damsel in distress or make a gallant knight nice and toasty. On the other hand, he’s a very powerful, magical creature, like a dragon ought to be.

--Frankenstein—Android 8—This character is basically lifted right out of the first classic movie. About the only thing they didn’t do is give him the voice of Boris Karloff. Remember, the original monster was also a gentle creature, at least at first, just never push either of them too far.

--Mad Scientist—Dr. Gero—There are plenty of these guys running in both series, but Gero takes the cake. He even comes with a secret laboratory! His madness becomes more and more obvious with each android he creates, culminating with the ultimate atrocity, Cell. Also, who else but a mad scientist would put his own brain in a robot body?

--Ghost—Gotenks—After all this was one of the first fusions we ever saw. And what Halloween be without one of these around?

--Demon—Buu—Another “dead” (or is it undead?) obvious one. As is well known in DBZ circles, “Majin” is Japanese for Demon. Buu fits right in, particularly with his incredible appetite. His various forms also fit in with various types of demons in Asian folklore.

Sorcerer—Babidi—There are many sorcerers in the DBZ, both good and bad, but Babidi is the top one. He compensates for his small stature with some pretty powerful spells. His incredibly sinister nature and desire for revenge also puts him square into the classic evil sorcerer mode. When Buu puts Babidi down for good, you couldn’t help but cheer.

Devil—Dabura—What’s Halloween without a Devil? If you are going to go that route, you must go with the biggest one of all. That’s Dabura. Remember before this bad boy went down he took out Piccolo and Krillin as well as gave the other Z fighters a load of grief. Seems being Lord of the Undead does have its side benefits, eh? Then again it took Majin Buu to show the sweet side of this guy. Makes you want to eat him up, doesn’t it?

Vampire—Vegeta—Now we’re really stretching it, but so what? While we’re sure that Vegeta will never develop a taste for a Bloody Mary (or Sue, Nancy or whomever), he also died in his battle against Buu. The big difference is with that darn great widow’s peak and generally aristocratic attitude one can easily see the Saiyan Prince walking around in a Transylvanian Castle sporting a tux and cape. Well can’t you?

Ogres—HFIL Guardians—There are many ogres running around the DBZ universe. That’s what all those guys with the little horns on their heads are, after all. Still these two are the best example when you think about it. Not only are they big and strong but ultimately not too bright. Sure they are tricky, as seen in DBZ episode #12, but it doesn’t take Goku long to beat them. Also, when Frieza, King Cold and Cell take over the HFIL, they act like true ogres and wimp out. It’s up to (the still dead!) Goku and Pikkon to bail them out.

So that’s a basic short list of Halloween monsters running through the DB universe. Here’s just ten but have fun coming with your own.

The Higher Gods By Greg Werner The Good, the Bad and the Circuitry:

It’s no small task keeping track of the gods and goddesses in DBZ! There are so many deities and heavenly servants that it takes time to master DBZ Universe’s nomenclature

--North Kai (King Kai)—This is the first higher deity encountered in DBZ. Here is a blue and antenna-laden character with a miniscule statue that masks his amazing fighting abilities. King Kai’s fighting style was never shown in the American edited version of DBZ, but in the Japanese version there are a few scenes of him teaching Goku how to use the Kaikoken. At first it’s thought King Kai is the highest god, but in the manga, Toriyama hints at other gods when Goku is training with him for the second time. This is further expanded upon in the anime. King Kai is particularly found of word games; he is constantly using words with double meanings. He first came into existence at around 100 million years BC. In the manga he owns a pet monkey named Bubbles (certainly an allusion to Michael Jackson’s primate pet) and in the anime he also has a cricket, Gregory. These creatures are an integral part of his training program.

--East Kai—The only female of the four normal Kai’s; she is an avid fan of jet bike racing and races Goku at one point. She is often seen in competition with the other Kai’s and is tough as nails with her trainers. One of her pupils is Aqua.

--South Kai—Southern Kai is the tallest of the four normal Kai’s. in the manga, he is the only other normal Kai seen. Some of his pupils are Tolubi and Frog.

--West Kai—The shortest of the Kai’s, West Kai is in competition with North Kai. His best pupil is Pikkon (or Paikuhan) who goes face to face with Goku in the final match of the Heaven’s Tournament. He comes up with the idea of the tournament to “honor” North Kai’s death.

--Grand Kai—The ruler of the normal Kai’s, this old-timer is a dress-down rock ‘n roll fanatic. He is supposedly one of the most powerful beings of the universe, but he realizes that Goku considerably more powerful than him. As a result, he is always trying to make excuses for not training Goku to save face.

--Kibito—Although not actually a god himself, Kibito is the rock-solid guardian for Supreme Kai. He has the ability to heal anyone near death and also to teleport anywhere in the universe. At first he’s very proud and doesn’t believe anyone could possibly be stronger than his master, but he’s awoken to the harsh reality that Saiyans are significantly more powerful than him and Supreme Kai when Gohan successfully extracs the Z Sword.

--Supreme East Kai “Shin”—At first, this mysterious purple-skinned white-mohawked character appears as a villain. As it turns out, this mysterious character is the holist and highest god left in the universe! Supreme Kai is a fly compared to Goku, Vegeta and even Gohan. Being a god may tend to make one a bit cocky, and he never believed humans (or what he assumed were humans). Could rival his strength. His weakness is revealed in several laughable scenes where be becomes frozen in terror by seeing Babidi’s “Incredibly powerful warriors!” taken out like last week’s trash by Goku, Vegeta and Gohan. After returning to Planet Kai, and releasing Elder Kai from the Z Sword, as a last ditch effort to defeat Buu, Elder Kai suggests the Potara earrings. These magical earrings when worn on the opposite ears of 2 individuals will fuse them automatically into a new and powerful warrior. Excited about this prospect of this new technique, Supreme Kai and his servant Kibito, try on the Potara and became Kaiobito!

--Supreme South Kai—The largest and probably strongest of the Supreme Kais. When Buu absorbed him, Buu took on a short and muscular appearance that is only briefly seen when he transforms back into his original form. Not much is known about him. He is only seen in the anime.

--Supreme North Kai—An older Supreme Kai who apparently enjoyed fishing. Majin Buu kills him. Not much is known about him. He only appeared briefly in the anime.

--Supreme West Kai—Supreme West Kai was the only female Supreme Kai. She appeared to be slightly older than East Supreme Kai and enjoyed horseplay. Buu cruelly kills her after a valiant attempt to fight her.

--Elder Kai—This is Supreme Kai form 15 generations of Supreme Kai’s. before, he was sealed in the Z Sword at around 75 million BC by an unknown dark force. The Z Sword was made into a challenge. Those who could release it were said to be wielding a great power. While it isn’t true that wielding the sword properly would be excellent training, the true “great power” was Elder Kai. He was released when Gohan broke the sword, this time he used a magical power to upgrade Gohan’s physical strength, he also supplied Goku with the Potara or Fusion earrings.

--Grand Supreme Kai—this is the Big Kahoona of the DBZ universe as far as we know, everyone answered to this guy; he was the highest god! Now, it would be unfair for me to compare his appearance to Majin Buu, because in reality, Majin Buu looks like him. He was the final victim of Majin Buu’s rampage at around 5 million BC. In a move that saved East Supreme Kai’s life, not to mention save the universe, he allowed himself to be absorbed into Buu. By doing this he was able to particularly control Buu. He couldn’t actually manipulate Buu’s body, but his presence made Buu docile and child-like.

Majin Buu By Phillip Eissier

Although Vegeta believes that he and Goku are the strongest characters in DBZ, he will soon find out that there is one who comes from the past, to prove looks can be deceiving.

The Walt Disney Connection
Most fans will say this is true. Even the ones who only bothered watching those…ugh…fan subbed copies of DBZ will say it. Akira Toriyama, beloved creator, is infamous for one thing and that is basically putting as many puns in this series, as possible. He did it with character names (Gohan, Piccolo, Bulma) attack names (Kamehameha) and even species names (Saiyan, Namek). But they do not have the same feel as what Majin Buu is a Disney themed pun. Bibidi is the father of Babidi who both had some connection to Majin Buu.
Perhaps Toriyama did this because when he was young he was involved in an art class where he learned to draw. One of his favorite things to draw were characters from Disney’s 101 Dalmatians.

Many Forms of Buu Yes, those who are/have watched DBZ would know there is more than one form, and the differences are there. For the beginners ignore any power level changes. It doesn’t really happen this time around. Mainly because his power level already rivals SSJ3 Goku and SSJ3 Gotenks. So absorption would not be needed in the same matter as Cell needed. While he was already at his peak he merely absorbed so he would remain the strongest.

*Fat Buu: This is Majin Buu’s 3rd form. Yes, I know he’s funny looking and it’s this form that we become the most familiar with but Fat Buu who befriended Mr. Satan and Bee does have some good qualities absorbed from Supreme South Kai and Grand Supreme Kai.

*Evil Buu: This form is the evil that steamed from Fat Buu’s body, thus becoming the 4th form. He ends up being the true evil from within Fat Buu. This form is truly one of the most unusual forms of Buu. His slender body is very deceiving. Just ask his former personality, Fat Buu who becomes a small tasty morsel!

*Super Buu: This is the 5th form, and the only one Vegito faced. This is the result of Evil Buu absorbing SSJ3 Gotenks, Mystic Gohan and Piccolo. His looks may differ throughout some of the episodes, but mainly because of the clothes he wears from the people he absorbed.

*Kid Buu: The first and final form. A creation of Bibidi, this form is not only pure evil, but primitive as well. Plus, add the fact he looks like he can be Super Buu’s son. The return to this form is the result of Vegeta ripping Fat Buu’s cocoon loose from within his own body. Then he and Goku retrieve Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Piccolo and narrowly escape from out of one of Super Buu’s steam channels.

*Second form of Buu: Just before absorbing Grand Supreme Kai, Buu absorbed Supreme South Kai. There is no true mention of a name at that point but just for the record there is a form that needs to be mentioned.

Blue Prints for Destruction: The Artificial Humans of DB/Z/GT By Greg Werner

Akira Toriyama-san probably meant for the Android he created in early dragonball series to be nothing more than a gag poking fun at Frankenstein’s monster. But Toriyama-san sensei has a way of coming up with plots very quickly when he needs to, often building on events from the past. And that is exactly what he did with the artificial humans. He recreated an aspect of the Red Ribbon Army that he wasn’t even aware existed when he originally made that saga, Doctor Gero. He built on the idea of a numbering system of Androids and ultimately invented the Cell Saga. Today we will look at the Androids in detail, from the beginning.

· Early Robotics: Androids 1-7: Were built during dragonball or even possibly before dragonball. Whether they were failures or simply spread out across the Red Ribbon Army’s outposts is unknown. However, since Goku encountered only one android in all his dealings with the RR, it’s unlikely they were active.

· Android 8 “Hacchan”: This is an organic-based artificial human, meaning he was once alive as a normal human. Dr. Gero made several adjustments to his body, including inserting a self-destruct mechanism that could be triggered by a remote control. However, the artificial human was a “failure”. He retained a conscious and did not want to kill Goku as he was ordered to do. Agent Purple tried to detonate #8 but Goku destroyed the remote control. Goku nicknamed him Hacchan (lil-eight) and befriended him. The android 8 was last seen in the end of Z when Goku was asking for everyone’s energy to create the ultimate spirit bomb. Android 8 also had a role in the dragonball 10th anniversary special.

· Androids 9-12: Their whereabouts, usefulness and basically any information about them is unknown.

Main Stream Mayhem

· Android 13: This trim and muscular android was the main villain of DBZ movie 7: The Three Super Saiyans. Much like Cell, he could be upgraded by absorbing components from his fellow androids. Background info on this character is not available. He only revealed himself about halfway through the movie. His powered up form is extremely large. His body changes to metallic blue and his hair becomes bright orange. Super Saiyan Goku later defeats him after he absorbed the power of the Spirit Bomb.
· Android 14: This large light blue android originally appears to be the most menacing of the trio from DBZ movie 7. the only words he appears programmed to say is the name of his current target, which eventually switches from Goku to Trunks. This artificial human is eventually sliced in half by Trunks’ sword.
· Android 15: This midget android from DBZ movie 7 is probably mechanically based. It does not appear to be human at all. Android 15 is dressed in flashy 80’s type clothing and sports big round shades. He also seems to be a bit of a drinker as he occasionally takes some sips from a flash he carries. His target switches from Goku to Vegeta, which creates a funny juxtaposition of always straight-faced Vegeta fighting this midget Boy George wannabe. In the end he laughs his head off, literally. Vegeta beheads him and his laughing head falls into his own hands before he explodes.
· Android 16: This is a mechanical type android that Dr. Gero also deemed as a failure. This particular android was loyal in carrying out his primary objective of killing Goku, but he was devoted to preserving all other forms of life. He says very little and rarely fights, but his power is frightening great. # 16 is also the only of the trio (16, 17 and 18) that can actually register power readings. # 17 and 18 were not given that ability, possibly because they were once human.
After his bout with Cell, # 16 is horribly damaged but Bulma and her father repaired him. In the process of repairing him they made 2 alterations. First they removed a powerful detonation device from his chest (without letting him know) and replaced his RR insignia with the Capsule Corp. logo. # 16 was actually able to initiate his self-destruct sequence by choice and tried to defeat Perfect Cell by using that ability. Unfortunately he realized too late that it was gone and Cell shattered him. # 16’s last words were to Gohan. He convinced Gohan to stop holding back his anger and to release it for the sake of saving the earth. After saying that, Cell crushed 16’s head and Gohan finally released his anger, allowing him to be the first to reach SSJ2.

All in the family

· Android 17 (Present): Formerly a rowdy biker gang leader, 17 was a young man with a life and parents, but all that changed when he and his sister were kidnapped by Dr. Gero and subjected to countless experiments that altered their bodies and made them part human, part deadly machine. 17 and his sister, #18, vowed to destroy Gero when they had the chance. Dr. Gero was aware of their treachery and even though they were incredibly powerful, he considered them a last resort. In the end, it was #17 that killed #20, which contained Gero’s memories, by beheading him and smashing his brian.
#17 and #18 cannot use ki. Rather they use an interior energy source that creates an infinite stream of energy. They can never lose stamina in a battle. This also means it is impossible for anyone to sense their ki. Although they may learn the ability over time (see # 18’s battle against “Mighty Mask”) they did not have this ability of their debut. 17’s last battle before being absorbed by Cell is with Piccolo. 17 dies when Cell dies but his spirit is wished back to life and the bomb within him was removed. After the Cell Saga, he moves into the woods and lives alone.
When considering the animated show in DBGT it’s actually revealed that #17 was intended to be stronger than Cell, but Gero backed the knowledge of how to boost his power. He combined his evil genius with that of Dr. Myuu’s and created “New Number 17”. This new 17 controlled original 17 and merged with him to create a terrifying new enemy.
· Android 18 (Present): This sexy blonde bomb-shell is #17’s sister and was also deemed a last resort by Gero. She was a member of her brother’s biker gang and is just as villainous as he was. However, she and her brother never kill a single innocent human. Krillin realizes this and spares her life when he had the opportunity to blow her up. Thus ultimately was a big mistake as Cell eventually absorbed her and became Perfect. However, after SSJ2 Gohan pounded on Perfect Cell for a few minutes, Cell vomited her up and Krillin rescued her once again. Later, Krillin and #18 get married. Together they have a daughter named Marron.
· Android 17 & 18 (Future): The 17 and 18 of Trunks’ time are very different. Although their personalities are similar, they will kill anyone for the fun of it. They essentially rule the earth. They kill the last surviving member of the original Z Soldiers, Gohan and this allows Gohan’s pupil, Trunks, to turn Super Saiyan. In the manga before Gohan died. When Trunks returns from the past he kills them swiftly and with ease.
· Android 19: 19 is Dr. Gero’s fist “successful” android. # 19 is 100 % loyal to his master, and ruthless. 19 is mechanical-type and although not as powerful as 16, 17 or 18 are, 19 can increase his power by absorbing ki attacks through red balls implanted in its palm. Vegeta solves that problem quickly by tearing off his arms then blowing him up with the Big Bang Attack.
· Android 20: It is important to note that # 2 is not Dr. Gero himself. # 20 is a mechanical-type robot that was built by Gero, but not given a brain. Supposedly #19 carried out the procedure of removing Gero’s brain from his old body and transferring it to 20’s brain case. This way Dr. Gero could have a sort of eternal life. #20 can absorb attacks through one of his palms, but Piccolo ripped it off. 20 ran back to his lab and as a last resort activated 17 & 18. He was killed, but his secret super computer was still working on creating the ultimate artificial human.
· Cell: Gero’s ultimate creation mixing biotechnology with his mechanical genius. Cell is the result of 24 years old computer calculations and growth inside Gero’s super secret lab. Cell originally emerged in a third time life and went looking for 17 & 18, secretly absorbing humans to become stronger. Unfortunately for him, Trunks had already killed 17 & 18. So Cell killed Trunks and used his Time Machine to travel back to when they still existed. In order to fit into the Time Machine he had to go to his larval stage. He landed on Earth and began absorbing nutrients underground so he could go back to his first stage. He came out of the ground right around the time 17 and 18 became active. The rest, as they say, is history.
· Super Hell Fighter 17: the result of merging between 17 and New Number 17 is this insane super-soldier. Super 17 essentially a much taller, much more muscular version of 17, with long hair. He has the power to absorb ki by taking blows anywhere to his body, rendering him invulnerable. The fight against him does not last long though. Goku rips a hole through his chest with the Dragon Fist attack and # 18 helps by finishing him off. Although he was not alive very long, Super 17 managed to kill Krillin, giving everyone a reason to gather the Dragon balls one last time.
