Capsule Corporation (カプセルコーポレーション) is a company founded in Age 712, and is run by Dr. Brief, Bulma's father. The corporation is based around, and takes its name from, the Hoi-Poi Capsules (also known as DynoCaps) invented by Dr. Brief himself.
The Capsule Corporation headquarters, which is also the Brief family's home, is located in West City, with its address being WST 3338926 K. The building, and the surrounding area, is large enough to have held the whole of the Namekian race after Frieza destroyed their planet and until they are wished to New Namek.
The building has three floors and a basement. The entrance is the lobby where the Receptionist is and that leads to the Atrium (nakaniwia) where dinosaurs, cats, dogs, and other animals live. The Atrium contains a Sparring Arena, and leads to the Capsule Room. There are also the exhibit room, the Central Computer Room (opened with a Red Access Card), the Security with a small jail, Dr. Brief's lab and workshop on level 01. The Brief family's rooms, notably Bulma's room (where Tapion tells his history to Bulma), are on level 02. On level 03, there are the West Tower and East Tower (opened with a Blue Access Card).
The storage room for Capsule Corporation is where Bulma found the Two-Star Ball before the start of the Dragon Ball story. There is a secret underground basement where Future Bulma built the Time Machine in her timeline. Also, a Gravity Machine was built in the building between the end of the Cell Games Saga and the beginning of the Great Saiyaman Saga for Vegeta's training. It is used by Vegeta and his son Trunks during their preparation for the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament.
Due to the invention and production of the extremely popular and useful capsules, the Capsule Corporation is one of the largest, richest and most influential companies in the world. At one point, the Capsule Corporation and the Red Ribbon Army were competitive rivals in the business race, but the creation of the DynoCaps from Capsule Corporation resulted in the Red Ribbon Army losing to it.
Although Capsule Corp's primary product is the DynoCaps technology, the company also develops and produces many of the items found within capsules. This can be seen by vehicles and other items bearing the Capsule Corporation logo. Using the resources of Capsule Corporation, Bulma and Dr. Brief have created many useful items essential to the Z Fighters, including several interstellar spacecrafts, a Time Machine, and Gravity Machines. The company also produces computers, laptops and different products used for scientific research.
The Capsule Corporation logo is very simple, with just being two letters "C" and the company name. The logo is worn by the Capsule Corporation workers. Android 16 wears the Capsule Corporation logo over his Red Ribbon logo after being fixed by Bulma and her father.
In Dragon Ball GT, Trunks is seen as the president of Capsule Corporation. Capsule Corporation also appears in the live-action movie Dragonball Evolution. In the spin-off manga Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission, Capsule Corporation is the company that created the arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes: a Capsule Corporation arcade is located in Satan City, and it is where the Capsule Corporation battle guide Sora and the Capsule Corporation engineer Yoshito-kun work.
Video Game Appearances
Capsule Corporation is attacked by the Rabbit Mob in Dragon Ball 3: Gokuden. The building can be visited in Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II, Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury, and Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans. In those three video games, the Capsule Corp. logo indicates a save point.
In The Legacy of Goku II, Panchy is found on level 02 and gives cookies which restore the health of the Z Fighters for free. Gohan gets a scouter there after obtaining what Bulma needed to get it to work from Bucky at Circuit Shack, the West City electronics store. An optional side-quest has Gohan tracking down a spy in Capsule Corporation, Newman from Pod Corporation, one of Capsule Corporation's major competitor, who was in the West Tower trying to find the formula that Dr. Brief was using to create the capsules. Also in this game, the Z Fighters can confront Yamcha, Krillin, and Tien Shinhan in the Sparring Arena.
The Capsule Corporation are is one of the ten locations in the board game The Heroic Dragon Ball Z Adventure Game.
The Capsule Corp HQ also appears in West City at the time of Dragon Ball Online, and was originally where Chow and Long worked at before joining Paella in Age 995. Capsule Corporation is a map in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2, and appears in cutscenes in Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden 2, Dragon Ball Z 2: Super Battle, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai, and Supersonic Warriors series.
In Dragon Ball Fusions, the Capsule Corporation is one of the many places that has been transported into the Timespace Rift and is implied to be from the Dragon Ball Super timeline. It can be found in Area 1F of the Timespace Rift. Tekka and Pinich travel here shortly after they are sucked the Timespace Rift and meet Bulma who tells them about the Timespace Rift and Timespace Tournament, as well as supplying Tekka with the robotic Timespace Radar, Ziku. The Capsule Corp building contains several points of interest such as the StreetPass menu, Adventure Bonus machine, and Wireless Communications. Tekka can also talk to Bulma and rest here to restore Health as well. In addition to the main timeline's Capsule Corporation, the ruins of the Future Capsule Corporation from Future Trunks' timeline can be found in Area F3 of the Timespace Rift surrounded by a barrier that Tekka's Team must breakthrough. After breaking down the barrier, Kid Trunks reacts in horror when he sees it in ruins.
- Dragon Ball Xenoverse
It appears in Dragon Ball Xenoverse as a battle stage. By Age 850, Future Bulma and Trunks: Xeno restored Capsule Corporation in the Future Timeline (exact year in that timeline is unrevealed) and it supplies everything in Toki Toki City from Capsules, Robots, Scouters, Battle Armor, clothing, and Time Patrol sanctioned Time Machines for the Supreme Kai of Time, Trunks: Xeno, and Time Patrol. Capsules, item materials, clothes, Battle Armors, and accessories can be purchased from Capsule Corporation shops run by various Capsule Corp robots in Toki Toki City's Industrial Sector. There is also a human Time Patroller engineer named Harry who also works as an engineer/technician at Trunks: Xeno's Capsule Corporation and mentions pieces of information about the company in his casual conversations with the Future Warrior. Several buildings/shops found in Toki Toki City are numbered, indicating they are actually in fact a type of Capsule House used by the Time Patrol. As part of the clothing options provide by the Capsule Corporation, there is a Time Patroller Suit design for Elite Time Patrollers that is made of reinforced fibers and features a Capsule Corp. Jacket, belt, pants, and boots similar to the clothing worn by Future Trunks when he first used his mother's time machine.
According to Chronoa, the Time Machine created by Future Bulma had an unknown flaw in its design which produces distortions in space and time that create alternate timelines. After tricking Trunks: Xeno into becoming her assistant to atone for his "sin" of altering history (when in reality Chronoa had not outlawed their use until after he had caused the first time distortion in the history of Universe 7 thus had technically committed no crime, though she underestimated that he would actually take her words to heart and become dedicated to defending history to atone for his "crime") Chronoa informed him and his mother of the flaw and using her in depth knowledge of the nature of time and space, she taught them how to fix the flaw to produce Time Machines that do not create alternate timelines which Chronoa later sanctioned for use by the Time Patrol to deal with time fragment timelines produced naturally as a side effect of the Time Scroll based history correction as these timelines cannot be accessed via Time Scroll. Also due to her interest in technology Chronoa often orders new products from the Future Capsule Corporation, though most end up cluttering up the yard around her house in the Time Nest due to her habit of taking them apart to see how they work. Trunks: Xeno tried to deal with the problem by providing her with a cleaning robot, but Chronoa fascinated by it asked it so many questions that it overloaded and Trunks: Xeno simply gave up and started cleaning it whenever he had the time though his many duties tend to make that an never ending task.
During the Demigra Incident in Age 778, Demigra's Mirage seeks to take control of Beerus while he is at Bulma's Birthday Party at the Capsule Corporation. However Vegeta manages to save one of the Pudding cups for Beerus who is about to eat it when Demigra's Mirage uses his magic to control Trunks' ball so that it knocked the pudding out of Beerus' hands, angering him (though ironically preserving the original timeline). However Beerus resists the attempts of Demigra's Mirage to control him. Instead of being slapped, Bulma is knocked back by Beerus' power which is witnessed by Trunks: Xeno though Vegeta is still angered by it and Trunks: Xeno cheers on his father from the Time Nest as Vegeta stands up to defend his wife's honor, though is defeated despite the Future Warrior's assistance though Goku arrives and the ritual is performed leading to Super Saiyan God Goku's battle with Beerus with the Future Warrior assisting. Eventually it is discovered that Beerus knew someone was trying to control him and pretends to fall under the influence of Dark Magic to lure out the culprit so he can destroy him for his blasphemy and later teams up with the Future Warrior to stop Demigra's Mirage, though he escapes causing Beerus and Whis to travel to the Time Nest in Age 850 to learn more about the Demon God though the Future Warrior and Trunks: Xeno convince them to let the Time Patrol deal with Demigra who is later defeated by the Future Warrior with the assistance of Goku from that same timeline.
- Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
The Capsule Corporation returns as a selectable battle stage in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and the ruined Future Capsule Corporation from Dragon Ball Super appears in the background of the Future in Ruins stage. The Future Capsule Corporation from Trunks: Xeno's future timeline of origin continues to supply materials, Robots, and products to Chronoa and the Time Patrol in Age 852. Under president Trunks: Xeno, Chronoa reveals the company developed to Transfer Shop Robots that allow Time Patrollers to teleport around Conton City which was built over Toki Toki City after it was accidentally destroyed when Chronoa created the Dragon when she used her divine powers on the Dragon Ball Pedestal's dragon statue to dispel growing rumors doubting the powers of the Gods of Creation like herself and Elder Kai. This proves useful due to Conton City's traffic laws concerning Flight and the sheer size of Conton City which is much larger than Toki Toki City.
Additionally various color customizable outfits can be acquired featuring the Future Capsule Corporation logo (which is a slightly different logo from the older one on Future Trunks' CC Jacket and Time Patroller Suit as it lacks the Capsule Corp name at the bottom and one "C" is blue). These outfits all feature (CC) in their names to denote they feature the Capsule Corp logo. It also produces Vehicle Capsule #315 which can be used by Time Patrollers to travel around Conton City faster than on foot (though not as fast as Flight or instantaneous as the Transfer Shop System) and features Capsule Corp. written on two egg-like protrusions on its sides. Time Patroller Suits are still manufactured and pieces of the suit are rewarded to Time Patrollers who pass the sixth and final Advancement Test at the Patroller Academy.
The main timeline Capsule Corporation appears in the Battle With Universe Six Saga as part of the Super Pack 2 DLC where Beerus and the rest of Team Universe 7 are forced to leave Goku and Majin Buu behind when a history change causes them not show up on the day they are supposed to leave for the Tournament of Destroyers forcing the Time Patrol to take action to ensure Team Universe 7 wins as it is supposed to.
The Future and Main Timeline versions also appears in the Warrior of Hope Saga as part of the Super Pack 4 DLC. In Age 796 of Future Trunks' timeline (DB Super), Future Trunks is shown using his Time Machine to flee to the main timeline, but his Time Machine breaks down suddenly reacting in a manner reminiscent of a Time Scroll with a history change, which allows Supervillain Goku Black to destroy both it and Future Trunks altering history. The Toki Toki City Hero is sent to ensure Future Trunks makes to the main timeline while the Future Warrior is sent to wait for Future Trunks to appear in the main timeline followed by Goku Black due to his Time Ring reacting to the time distortion created by Future Trunks' flawed Time Machine. The Future joins Super Saiyan 2 Goku in fighting Black until he is sucked back to Age 796, though he manages to successfully destroys Trunks' time machine as per the original timeline, though the correction is still successful as Cell's Time Machine still exists and is later repaired by Bulma, Dr. Brief, and the Pilaf Gang. Goku Black's rift in time later connects the main timeline and many others to Age 796 of the future timeline, which allows Gohan and Piccolo to lend their energy along with many others from various timelines to Future Trunks during his climatic battle with Supervillain Grotesque Zamasu, with the rift closing upon Grotesque Zamasu's physical death.
- Time Miniature (Large Time Rift)
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Turles places a Distorted Time Egg created by Towa in one of her failed attempts at replicating Tokitoki's Egg artificially, inside the grounds of the Capsule Corporation causing it to be enveloped by a large time rift anomaly which appears in Age 852. Chronoa and the Time Patrol manage to contain it inside a Time Miniature which floats above the Time Machine Station in Conton City while the Time Patrol investigate the cause of the anomaly that created it unaware of Turles and Towa's involvement. If the Future Warrior is a Saiyan, they are sent to investigate this rift during the game's prologue where they witness Bulma telling Vegeta she had made him some new armor only for him to brush her off to go training, causing Bulma to get mad at Vegeta for ignoring her. Before they can investigate any further, the Future Warrior is then contacted by Elder Kai to inform them they have been selected for a critical mission and the Warrior returns to Conton City to take on their new assignment. Later on Chronoa asks the Warrior to check out each of the rifts, allowing them to return to the Capsule Corporation, where they learn from one of the Murasaki Brothers that they can spar with Vegeta or use Bulma's new invention that creates a special type of equipment called QQ Bangs. Bulma allows the Warrior to use her machine in order to test it allowing Bulma collect more data to fine tune the machine before it is released to the general public. The Future Warrior can also spar with Vegeta once they reach a certain level. After a few sparring sessions, Vegeta will notice that they are not transforming into a Super Saiyan and is surprised to learn the Future Warrior cannot transform yet despite their high power level. Vegeta tells the Warrior to talk to Trunks and Bulma about the transformation to learn more. After returning to Vegeta, Capsule Corporation Quest: "Saiyan Awakening" is unlocked where the Future Warrior faces off against SSJ Vegeta and SSJ Goku, before unlocking their Super Saiyan Awoken Skill mid-battle which allows them to transform into a Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, or Super Saiyan 3 depending on the amount of Ki they have charged up. Defeating Vegeta and Goku, will cause them to revive and power up to Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta and Super Saiyan 3 Goku. Defeating Goku and Vegeta a second time will complete the quest, unlocking the Super Saiyan Awoken Skill permanently. Vegeta will continue to spar with the Warrior after this and his final quest allows them to unlock the Super Vegeta Awoken Skill which allows them to transform into Super Vegeta and Super Vegeta 2 depending on the amount of ki charged up. The Future Warrior can also talk to Goten and Trunks as they play in the yard of the Capsule Corporation. Eventually Bulma reveals the Egg that had been left behind by Turles and explains she has had to keep a close eye on it as Vegeta wants to fight whatever is inside it. She decides to hand it over the Warrior as they are strong enough to keep up with Vegeta and due to her woman's intuition that tells the Warrior somehow knows how to handle it.
After collecting the other Distorted Time Eggs from the four other Large Rifts contained in Time Miniatures in Conton City, Chronoa reveals the Distorted Time Eggs were an attempt by Towa to replicate Tokitoki's Eggs artificially but she failed as they are impossible to replicate. As she considers removing the large rifts a real hassle, notes some Patrollers investigating them have become fond of their presence, and the fact that their sheer size makes them quite stable, she decides to allow all of them to remain thus allowing the Future Warrior and other Time Patrollers to visit the Capsule Corporation in its anomalous timeline allowing them to spar with Vegeta, make QQ Bangs, or simply hang out when off duty.
