The Galactic Poachers (銀河密猟団 Ginga Mitsuryou Dan) are a group of hunters who steal and sell rare animals across the universe.
As they left however, a wildlife protector and a "temp" named Android 17 and Goku respectively followed them. Noticing them with their cameras, the poachers surrounded the two fighters. However, Goku and Android 17 quickly took them down.
As Goku took down the main force of poachers, 17 headed straight to the boss and took down his guards and had the boss in a corner. As Goku arrived, the boss attempted to bribe them with money, calling the protectors' actions "hypocritical" as in the end they all want money. However, as 17 pushes the boss back, he tells him that he does not dislike the boss nor is he interested in money, what he doesn't like what is disgusting to him.
As a last ditch effort, the boss threatened them to not take a step closer, and if they do, the boss will blow up a bomb in his body. After 17 told Goku to take care of the animals, he rushed towards and blasts the window, causing the air to suck 17 and the boss out of the ship, attempting to kill the boss by leaving him in space. However, Goku transformed into Super Saiyan Blue and took them both to King Kai's Planet. When finding out the bomb in his body was a lie, the Galactic Poachers were soon arrested by the Galactic Patrol, who returned all their animals to the planets they had been stolen from.
- Gun - Most of the forces possessed guns.
- Sword - Both of the guards have a sword to slice enemies with.
- Knife - The boss possessed a knife in his jacket and uses it for self-defense.
Video Game Appearances
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 as part of the Extra Pack 2 DLC, in New Parallel Quest 119: "A Ranger's Duty". Android 17 mistakenly assumes the Frieza Force are Galactic Poachers (whom 17 refers to as Poachers from Outer Space) while investigating sightings of a large mysterious animal with the aid of the Time Patrol. He also assumes that Nappa is part of the same group and wonders if the Saibamen he planted are a new kind of weapon the poachers are using. Ironically he discovers that it was Nappa's Great Ape form that people had mistaken for a unknown animal causing him to leave as it is not his responsibility to deal with Great Ape Nappa as he is a sentient alien lifeform (as Nappa retains his reason in Great Ape form) and not a wild animal (presumably he realizes that the Saiyan is simply invading Earth and is not a poacher thus outside of his jurisdiction). The Galactic Poachers themselves do not actually appear.
