Donbe (ドンベ) is a shapeshifting fox who likes to cause mischief around Penguin Village.


Dr. Slump


Donbe in "Arale's Big Change"

Donbe meets Arale Norimaki when he tries to scare her by turning into a one-eyed monster, but, instead, Arale scares him with a funny face. He is seen once again in "Arale's Big Change", as one of the people shocked at Arale's new behavior. He is seen on a tree with other minor characters, such as Nekotora-7, at the beginning of "Penguin Village S.O.S.: Part 2".


Donbe disguised as the mailman

In "The Great Arale-Eye Caper: Part 2", Donbe sees Arale when Senbei is watching as Donbe tries to scare Arale, but it did not work on her so Senbei sees it and it scares him badly. He then goes to the Norimaki Residence with Arale and Gatchan. Donbe is seen playing baseball with Taro Soramame, Akane Kimidori and Rat in the chapter "Penguin Village Dom-Dom-Dom!", before following Arale and Gatchan with the other Penguin Village residents.


Goku asking Donbe and Rat about General Blue

Later in the series, Donbe teaches a panda how to shapeshift. He also has a love interest for a female fox named Kitsuneko.

Dragon Ball

Donbe watches Arale racing with the Gatchans just before General Blue and Goku arrive in town. He is seen again standing next to Rat when Goku asks if they have seen General Blue, but they both shake their head to say no.

Video game appearance

Voice actors


  • Donbe was likely an inspiration for Oolong, as well as the filler character Konkichi.
  • A Red Ribbon Army soldier who looks like Donbe appears in the Dragon Ball episode "Bulma's Bad Day".
  • In Chinese and Japanese mythology, huli jing or kitsune are mischievous fox spirits, both good and evil, that often shift-shape into the form of beautiful young women and seduce married men into leaving their wives. This could probably explain Donbe's incorrigible knack for mischief.
