Tall Man (known as Noppo (ノッポ) in the Japanese version) is one of the cowboys seen in the Brown Country saloon. He is the only person to not be afraid of hearing Launch's name. When Launch shows up in her normal form (everybody only knows her as her bad form), he bought her a drink trying to hit on her. When she sneezed and became her bad counterpart, she knocked him out.
Tall Man seems to be a parody of the type of heroes in old westerns.
Tubs (デブ, Debu) is one of the cowboy followers of Tall Man shown in the beginning to Look Out for Launch. He is seen talking to him in the Saloon. When Launch shows up and transforms, he is beaten up along with everybody else.
Chenshi was a baby when his village was attacked by Terror and Plague. Terror and Plague had a man-eating gourd which would swallow someone if they did not reply when called by name, and so they gathered the villagers up and called out their names. However, there was no way that the two week old Chenshi could reply. Terror forced Chenshi's mother to tell him his name so that he could call it. But Goku had come to get rid of Terror and Plague at Chao's request, and unable to tolerate this, he dashed in and put a stop to it, and Chenshi was spared. His character design is exactly the same as Turbo Norimaki.

Unfortunately for Strong, he messes up while posing during his tryout and is knocked into the sky by Captain Ginyu. In the FUNimation dub and Ocean dub, the reason for Ginyu knocking Strong into the sky was changed into him being a Captain like Ginyu.

His voice actors are Yukimasa Kishino in the Japanese version, Adam Henderson in the Ocean dub, and Justin Pate in the FUNimation dub.
Goose is a green-headed, pale-yellow-skinned humanoid dilophosaurus-like alien. He is the same alien race as the Frog-Face soldier (who appeared in the Namek Saga). During his tryout for the Ginyu Force, Captain Ginyu knocks him into the sky because, according to Ginyu, Goose did not have enough style to be on the Ginyu Force. His voice actors were Kōzō Shioya in the Japanese version, Ward Perry in the Ocean dub, and Sonny Strait in the FUNimation dub.
Oggers is a short, orange alien who appears in the anime only.

Upon executing the soldier, the Commander mentions that he owes Frieza for raising his family's station (social rank).

Litt Frieza Soldier
In the Garlic Jr. Saga, Vegeta ruthlessly slaughtered some of Frieza's men on a distant planet in search of Goku. This bird-like soldier was the last surviving soldier on the battlefield, from a dodo bird-like alien species called the Litts (though the species is only named in the Japanese version). He wondered why Frieza would order Vegeta to do something like that to his race. Vegeta interrogated this soldier, hoping to get some answers on Goku's whereabouts.
The soldier, who had never met or heard of Goku/Kakarot, said he knew nothing. Vegeta then went on to explain about how Kakarot was the one who killed Frieza and that Vegeta had betrayed Frieza. This left the soldier in shock and he was angered at this, thinking that the Saiyan prince was lying. He tried to shoot him with his arm cannon. In reciprocation, Vegeta grabbed and crushed the gun in front of his face before he even had a chance to fire and Vegeta then blew his face up with a ki beam. This soldier was voiced by Kazumi Tanaka in the Japanese version, Terry Klassen in the Ocean dub, and Chuck Huber in the FUNimation dub.
This Captain is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise. He makes his debut in "The Coming of King Cold", the 330th chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, issued on November 8, 1991.

This Captain is a humanoid who works as a soldier in King Cold's interplanetary operations. His appearance is marked by the curious combination of blond hair coupled with a white beard. The captain is responsible for the discovery of what remains of Frieza, after his climactic battle with Super Saiyan Goku. He oversees the journey to Earth upon Frieza's recovery, where King Cold and Mecha Frieza intend to exact revenge on Goku. After Future Trunks interferes, however, this Captain and his comrades effortlessly fall victim to the youth from the future. He was voiced by Ken Yamaguchi in the Japanese version, Michael Kopsa in the Ocean dub, and Christopher Sabat in the FUNimation dub.
His power level should be over 75,000 at least since Frieza considered him and his crew to be able to defeat the Z-Warriors who fought him on Namek, of whom Krllin who was the weakest had that kind of power level in the begining of the fight.
- Hebrew Dub: Meron Aronovitch
- The Unnamed Captain is first seen with wrist protectors (as he's seen in the rest of his DBZ appearance), but while he shouts that he found Frieza his hands are covered with gloves despite being bare exposed in the previous scene. He's also seen wearing gloves in Dragon Ball Heroes.

General White's sisters are two younger women only seen in a photo that Ninja Murasaki drops when fighting Goku in Muscle Tower. The picture is of them in their underwear getting dressed in ninja outfits. He was supposed to be showing them around the tower at the time, so he likely tricked them into changing so that he could use his stealth to take the picture. One has purple hair and is shown putting on blue while the other one is blonde and is seen putting on pink. Murasaki also has a picture of the blonde (possibly whom he sees as the most attractive of the two siblings) posing alone in her pink ninja outfit in his hut.
Jimbo and Slimjim
Jimbo and Slimjim were the first two members of the Red Shark Gang to be seen, when they are on a joyride terrorizing citizens. Gohan steps up to fight them, but when he sees Videl watching, he lets his guard down because he does not want her to know of his strength, and Jimbo lands a punch to Gohan's face. Then, Videl jumps in and takes out Jimbo with ease, and the two flee back to their gang. It is implied that his punching Gohan still managed to injure him to a certain extent, even with Gohan faking his lack of strength, because Jimbo remarked that punching Gohan was "like punching a wall of solid steel." Shortly later, they are seen with their gang, who held the Satan City Mayor at knife point, demanding that Mr. Satan come out to fight their leader, Rock.
They both later appear in "People of Earth Unite" when Gohan tries to convince people to give energy to Goku's Super Spirit Bomb, although Slimjim now has blonde hair.

Goku brought her back to the island on the Flying Nimbus, where Roshi proceeded to hit on her, though he was put off by the tail at first. She then punched him and jumped back into the ocean. Her riding on the Flying Nimbus when Master Roshi met her implies that she was pure of heart.
The mermaid appears in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Super Gokuden: Totsugeki-Hen.

Paperclip truck driver
In the episode "Deadly Beauty", Vegeta threatens to blast Android 18, who is standing several meters away from him on the road. A truck drives behind Android 18 and the driver yells for her and Vegeta to get out of the middle of the road, as he has a truckload of paperclips he needs to unload. With no regard for the safety of the driver, Vegeta shoots a Big Bang Attack at 18. Naturally, she dodges and the blast hits the paperclip truck and blows it up, killing the driver. Android 17 comments that he likes to see destruction such as this. He bears an uncanny resemblance to Android 13, and the logo on his truck's passenger door closely resembles the insignia of the Ginyu Force. It is worth noting that, due to the nature of his death at the hands of Vegeta, he is never wished back to life in the original series.
In the dubbed version of Dragon Ball Z Kai, the driver is left alive instead of dying from Vegeta's attack, as he can be heard exclaiming "Dude, my truck!!" as the explosion subsided. It is possible that he got out the truck before it exploded, in the Japanese version he actually doesn't say anything.
In the Japanese original version of this scene, there's no referece to the content of the truck.

King Kress (クレス王) and Queen Kress (クレス王妃) are the rulers of the Fiend Village, a land that Goku visits in the episode "Goku Goes to Demon Land". They sent Goku to the Demon Realm so he can save their daughter Princess Misa, who was kidnapped by Shula, the king of the Demon World, who was planning to marry her.
After Goku rescued her and left Demon Land, he met back up with the king and queen. The king appeared to be very grumpy when first meeting Goku, but became very happy and grateful to him when he saw that Goku saved his daughter. He also is aware of the existence of Master Roshi.
Princess Snake's Attendants
Princess Snake's servant girls are always at her side. In the FUNimation dub, one of them is named Nina (her name is mentioned by princess Snake). Likewise, in the old Ocean Group dub, one is referred to as "Keely."
In a scene cut from televised airings, one of the servant girls pulls out a magnum pistol, explaining she likes to play Russian roulette to pass the time and quickly loses the game when the gun's bullet goes through her head.
They appear in the Nintendo DS games Dragon Ball Z: Harukanaru Densetsu and Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans. In the latter, they are enemies that show the ability to contort and elongate their arms to attack their opponents. Also in Attack of the Saiyans, those called Princess Servants are blonde and wear green dress while those called Princess' Guards have dark hair and wear purple dress.
Red Ribbon Army Soldiers
Silver's henchmen (RR軍兵士, RR-gun heishi) are a Human and an anthropomorphic wolf who work for Colonel Silver. They are the only soldiers under the command of Colonel Silver who appear in the Dragon Ball manga.
While they were snoozing instead of searching the Dragon Ball, Colonel Silver rudely awakens them with his gun. They talk about how pointless the search is when Goku comes and finds the Dragon Ball in less than a minute. They try to steal it, but Goku easily defeats them.
Silver's henchmen are featured in a boss fight in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Super Gokuden: Totsugeki-Hen. They are seen in a cutscene in Dragon Ball Z: Idainaru Son Goku Densetsu. The human soldier also has a brief appearance in Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo, while the anthropomorphic wolf is used as a model for regular soldiers in the game. In Dragon Ball: Origins 2, this duo is replaced by a soldier wearing a Red Ribbon Army uniform and a Leopard Man.
White's scouts are a Human and an anthropomorphic dog who work for General White. The human is ranked a sergeant, while the dog is an ordinary soldier. Out of White's regular soldiers, they are the only two to have a major role in the Dragon Ball anime.
They are first introduced when they report a plane crash to White. White orders them to investigate the crash, according to the report he received from Red Ribbon Army Headquarters about Goku on board the plane. The sergeant responds that all they found were remnants of the robot that was piloting the plane. The soldier, however, manages to find a trail (resulting from Suno dragging an unconscious Goku), and the two follow it via a tank. When White calls them for progress reports, the sergeant responds that the trail is too hard to see due to a blizzard; White simply barks at him to not waste any time, under the pretense that the boy was not far.
The sergeant then orders his platoon to fan out and search for Goku, while he and his underling continue to follow the trail. It eventually ends at the edge of a cliff, so they decide to turn back. Suddenly, the sergeant discovers a small number of dome-shaped houses (Jingle Village) below the cliff, one of which he assumes that Goku is in hiding. One by one, they search the houses, leaving inhabitants terrified and their furniture destroyed by gunfire. When they finally reach Suno's home, they discover Goku in the bathroom and open fire; but to their horror, they find that their guns had very little effect on the child. Goku misidentifies the sergeant as Suno's father, but Suno explains that they are Red Ribbon soldiers. Before the soldiers can fire a second round, they are knocked out by Goku's swift attacks. The sergeant is never seen again after this.
During Goku's fight with Ninja Murasaki, the dog soldier is seen again at Muscle Tower (having recovered from his wounds), serving the imprisoned Jingle Village Chief his supper in his jail cell. When the chief asks the soldier about the battle's ruckus, the soldier answers that Goku was coming to rescue him but warns him not to get his hopes up, as he assumes the boy was already dead anyway. Enraged that the army would go so far as to kill a child, the chief grabs the soldier, yelling at him what he would do if he had a son in the same situation; the soldier pushes him away and responds that he would not have his own son wandering around the tower in the first place before leaving the jail cell. Afterwards, the soldier is never seen again.
In the GBA game Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure, the Red Ribbon soldier enemies look like the dog soldier. They are unlockable as playable characters in certain modes. Both appear in Dragon Ball: Origins 2 as regular enemies in chapter 2.
White's Binoculars Soldier
The binoculars soldier is a random soldier who works for General White. He is most likely the NCO of the squad patrolling the vicinity where the soldiers forced the citizens of Jingle Village to dig through the snow for one of the Dragon Balls supposedly near them. When he noticed Goku running towards the digging site, he alerted a tank to pursue him. In the episode "A Real Bind", a soldier similar to this one was seen spying on Yamcha and the others while they were flying towards the Red Ribbon HQ.
The Tank Soldiers were three of General White's troops who drove a single tank. They were sent by the binoculars soldier who discovered Goku heading near their digging area. After the boy dodged their cannon fire, the leader of the trio stepped out of the tank and yelled out to him, demanding to know where he was going. Goku answered that he was on his way to Muscle Tower; this amused the soldiers, as they teased him about his business there and suggested that he turn back. When the boy asked them if they were Red Ribbon soldiers (to which the leader responded yes), he ordered them to fight him. They did via gunfire, but Goku managed to evade their bullets by traveling beneath the snow, intimidating the confused soldiers. After a brief moment of hiding, Goku finally popped out, surprising them, and defeated the gun-toting trio.
Muscle Tower Guards
The Muscle Tower Guards were a small group of General White's soldiers patrolling the vicinity around Muscle Tower. Among these soldiers is an anthropomorphic bear, who is most likely the NCO of the group. When they saw Goku rushing towards the tower, the NCO alerted his superior, who ordered them to immediately open fire. Goku, however, shielded himself from the soldiers' bullets and knocked them all out simultaneously using his power pole.
2nd Floor Guards
The 2nd Floor Guards were four of General White's soldiers Goku encountered on the second floor of Muscle Tower. Two of the soldiers fought via kicking and boxing, while the other two wielded a gun and a knife.
They were at first seen lounging about (possibly bored), waiting for their intruder. They were quick to react as they heard the outside door open but were surprised to find that the trespasser was a mere child (Goku). Amused, the troops "scolded" Goku for startling them and, with granted permission from General White, prepared to kill him.
Intent on sharing the killing of the boy among his comrades, the leader of the group (the kicking soldier) slowly reared in on Goku to strike first but missed, and Goku kicked back, sending the soldier flying into the wall, the impact knocking him out. Angered, the knife-wielder and the boxer both lunged at the boy but were easily defeated as well. The gun-toter then attempted to sneak on Goku and shoot him, but Goku dodged too quickly, and the soldier found himself firing at an illusion. Confused about his enemy's whereabouts, he panicked, and Goku tapped his shoulder from behind (much to the soldier's shock) and sent him flying into a nearby table with a powerful punch, knocking him out too, much to the intrigue of White and Murasaki.
The Maze Soldiers were the last group of General White's men (5 soldiers, to be exact) who were sent to the 4 1/2 floor to kill Goku. Android 8, putting his ear to the floor, sensed their approaching footsteps, causing Goku to be on the offensive. When they arrived, Eighter reluctantly tripped one of them (who just happened to be running while on the search), sending the soldier flying into a wall, knocking him out cold; Goku easily defeated the other four by pushing two of the soldiers into another one, sending all three flying to the wall to knock them out, and landing a powerful punch to the last soldier.
The soldiers who were piled together can be seen under Colonel Silver's command: Two were chasing the monkeys that were in possession of one of the Dragon Balls; the third (a bearded soldier) was destroying a forest with a flamethrower.
Scout 0-1 is a soldier in the Red Ribbon Army. He saw Goku, Krillin and Bulma leave Kame House to search for the Dragon Ball in a submarine. He told General Blue that his base was Kame House and they only people there are an old man, a turtle and a woman who were all unarmed.
Soldier 23 was one of the last soldiers of General Blue's sector. He was sleeping back at General Blue's Camp during the time Goku, Krillin, Bulma and Mousey escaped the Pirate Cave. When he woke up, he overheard Goku's conversation about he defeated General Blue, to which the soldier panicked and hid in a shelf while they investigated the base. When they left General Blue returned and, after being informed by the soldier that the three had been in the base and that he had been sleeping on the job and had hid from them instead of trying to stop them, killed him using a gun (mentioning to the dying soldier "now you can sleep all you want"). He has a slight resemblance to Senbei Norimaki from the Dr. Slump series.
Violet and the trio first appeared on a boat, searching for one of the Dragon Balls in a swamp. While the wolf soldier was fanning his relaxing superior, the human soldiers (following the radar confiscated from Goku) discovered the Dragon Ball at the swamp's bottom and quickly alerted her of the discovery. As they prepared to leave, a giant alligator impeded their path; one of the human soldiers attempted to subdue it with a gatling gun. Violet understood that it was merely hungry and pushed the human soldiers off the boat as meal offerings to distract the alligator so that she and her last goon could escape. The two soldiers begged their commanding officer to let them back on, but their pleas fell on deaf ears, and the behemoth reptile instantly devoured them, much to the horror of the wolf soldier.
When they finally reached land, Violet and the wolf soldier attempted to return to Red Ribbon HQ via an airplane that was parked nearby. Their efforts, however, were delayed by hostile natives throwing spears, and the soldier realized that he and his leader were on their turf. Making haste, he tried to start the plane's engine but failed to do so in time when he was stabbed by one of the flying spears, killing him. Violet then took control of the plane herself and flew back to HQ safely with the Dragon Ball in her possession. Despite losing her men, she managed to successfully complete her mission.
In the FUNimation dub, Samuel is General Blue's long lost brother. At Penguin Village, when General Blue was going to Senbei Norimaki's house in order to steal an airplane, he mistakes Obotchaman for Samuel while Obotchaman was fixing his stolen car. In the original Japanese version, Samuel is never referred to and General Blue instead expresses his attraction for Obotchaman.
Tai is little boy who only appears in the Dragon Ball anime. He is celebrating his birthday with his family during the Piccolo Jr. Saga, when Kid Piccolo Jr. becomes angry at the sight of them and throws a rock through their window. While they are distracted, Piccolo Jr. enters their house and approaches them from behind. The Namekian ransacks their house and then runs off into the woods. The family sicces their dog on him, but Piccolo Jr. blasts it away, thereby discovering some of his power.
Tailor Ford is the man who made a new Turtle School uniform for Goku right before he goes to Fortuneteller Baba's Palace with Yamcha, Puar, Krillin and Upa. Yamcha bribes him to have it done in an hour. Tailor Ford lives in a town in the northeast part of the Southern Continent.
The Tiger Thief is an anthropomorphic tiger (who is just like Bear Thief) who was being offered to save Chao's village in "Terror and Plague". He declined the offer and was going to attack Chao but was defeated by Goku.
- Video game appearance
- The armor the Tiger Thief wears resembles that worn by Chinese soldiers during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The Bear Thief, the Tiger Thief, the nameless warrior trapped in the Gourd of Mist, Sky Dragon, and Lord Yao also wear similar armors.
- Tiger Thief might be based on an unnamed demon warrior from the king of the yellow wind in the Chinese novel Journey to the West.
Tommie is one of Maron's many boyfriends. He makes his first and only appearance in the series during the 137th episode of the Dragon Ball Z anime, "Last Ditch Effort". This is during the Android Saga. He is a muscular Human with black hair. When he arrives on Master Roshi's island, he is seen wearing a light blue-green top (the same color as his boat), red shorts and black sunglasses.
Tommie shows up on Master Roshi's Island while Maron is watching a sad, love story movie. When the movie is ending they hear a noise outside that is when Mack arrives on Master Roshi's Island, followed by Tommie. They are followed by many of Maron's other boyfriends. When Master Roshi asks who all of the men are Maron replies by saying, "I was bored so I called up a few boyfriends". Maron then runs inside, grabs her bags and hops into the boat with Tommie. She and all of her boyfriends are never seen again in Dragon Ball Z.
The Aerobics Women (エアロビの女人) are women that appear on Master Roshi's favorite television program, "Wide-Thigh Aerobics" which he watches whenever he is able to. He claims watching them could unlock the key to creating a new technique, when in reality he just wants to watch it for the pleasure of seeing beautiful women work out. Everytime he is seen watching the program, the women seem different.
This program first appeared in chapter 24 "The High Price of Education" of the manga and episode 14, "Goku's Rival" in the anime. In one instance in the episode "Find that Stone!", Arale Norimaki can be seen on the TV instead of the woman but when the screen shifted back to Roshi regular woman are seen again. In one episode Roshi is seen listening to workout tapes on a cassette player rather than watching it on TV. In the episode "The Doomsday Broadcast", the program was briefly interrupted when Cell burst through the floor right underneath an aerobic woman, causing her to get into a screaming fit as well as alerting the Z Fighters to Cell's presence on TV.
Emperor Pilaf's Mother
During the Emperor Pilaf Saga, in the anime only, Emperor Pilaf has a dream with his mother saying "Pilaf, did you steal those Dragon Balls?" Then, Pilaf says "Mommy," causing him to trip and drop the Dragon Balls. She is never mentioned again in the series.
Four Professional Boxers
A Muscular Lady brought to Kame House when Goku went there to receive training from Master Roshi.

- Video game appearances
This lady makes a minor appearance in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Super Gokuden: Totsugeki-Hen and is a boss in Dragon Ball: Origins. In Dragon Ball: Origins, Goku finds this muscular woman in the Mushroom Forest after a villager from Monster Carrot's Village told him a robust woman was there seeking for a mushroom that would make her stronger. After the boss battle, she accepts to travel to Kame House with Goku because she wants to learn martial arts.
A woman who looks like the Muscular Lady is later seen at the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, during the brief scene in which Goku is naked following his Great Ape de-transformation.
Mother with sunglasses

A Rich Couple is a husband and wife that had lost their money. They visit Fortuneteller Baba to retrieve it; she reveals to them that they had hid it in a cucumber, something they had forgotten. Then, they leave Baba's palace in their limo. This rich couple obviously had the financial means to pay Baba's massive fee to have their fortune told, so they did not have to fight her five warriors.
According to Master Roshi, long ago there was a Mighty-but-compassionate Warrior. His power was beyond measure, yet many foolish upstarts tried to destroy him, in hopes of making a name for themselves. They were all unsuccessful, until one day, Spike the Devil Man appeared. Knowing he could not compete against the warrior's strength, the Devilman attacked using his mind. He discovered he could exploit his opponent's negative thoughts, no matter how faint, and convert them into an energy beam of immense power, the Devilmite Beam.
The Mighty-but-compassionate Warrior looks very similar to Nam.
Strong King's Guard
This guard attempts to thwart Piccolo's takeover of King Castle, but is killed with a hand through his chest after he refuses to tell King Piccolo where King Furry is located. It is presumed he was soon after revived with the other recent victims of King Piccolo and his sons.
Parsley City Old Man
An old man was one of the survivors of the attack of Future Android 17 and Future Android 18 on Parsley City, trapped in an overturned car. The man had a son who was murdered by Android 17 during the attack (implied in the FUNimation original and remastered dubs to be the same boy who Android 18 thought was cute and was angered with 17 for murdering), getting him enraged enough to attempt to shoot Android 17, weakly shouting "You demon! That was my son you killed!". Unfortunately, Android 17's enhanced body structure allowed the bullet to bounce off his head and notice the old man, with the old man attempting to drive him away futilely by repeatedly shooting at him with his handgun. He then ends up at the mercy of 17 (who intends to play "draw" with him by pointing his laser gun inches from the old man's chin), stating he can not spare the old man since "he shot first". However, he is narrowly saved by Future Trunk's Ki Blast aimed at 17, bracing for the Ki blasts impact with a building. He is later helped up after Androids 17 and 18 are vanquished by Trunks, who expresses sympathy to his mourning for his son by stating that he knew a man he viewed like a father who was killed by the Androids. In the manga, however, he is killed by Android 17 before Trunks shows up.
Piccolo's Adoptive Parents
An old couple who found King Piccolo's last egg, which contained Piccolo Jr. The old lady spotted the egg, and she and her husband brought it to their house.

Men with "The Super Saiyan" shirts
Two men with "The Super Saiyan" shirts are seen twice in the series. It is not clear if they even know about Saiyans. This was probably a joke.
The first man appears in "Saiyans Emerge" when Semi-Perfect Cell is threatening to kill the people on the nearby islands if Android 18 will not show herself. He has light brown hair, and wears a plain white t-shirt with gold letters which read "The Super Saiyan". The screen at this time shows a couple of citizens, and he is shown standing to another man.

An unnamed tailor who lives in a city south of the Sacred Land of Korin and east of the Red Ribbon Army Headquarters. Mercenary Tao appears to this tailor right after Goku had ruined his outfit during their battle. The tailor says to Tao that the outfit would take a whole week to remake, but Tao gives him only three days, and the tailor remakes his outfit without sleep. When he asks for his pay, Tao wonders why he would ask the world's greatest assassin to give away money. Tao tells him he does not carry any money and instead offers to kill someone for him, as his services normally cost 10 billion zeni, but as the tailor does not want anyone killed, Tao kills the tailor with a Pressure Point Attack and leaves the shop, telling him to keep the change.
- Video game appearances
Tao's tailor appears in the video game Dragon Ball: Origins 2, but is not shown being killed by Tao.

A doctor who works in Wukong Hospital. He slightly resembles Dr. Brief (and sounds quite similar to him), except with slightly spikier hair, a smaller mustache, and is remarkably taller. This doctor takes care of Goku when he is in the hospital after his battle against Vegeta. He and the nurse refuse to let Goku train with his bad arm. Later, he does not want Yajirobe to give him a Senzu Bean, and both he and the nurse are quite shocked to see it completely heal Goku. They then watch shockingly when Goku leaves the hospital and flies away on his Flying Nimbus.
The doctor is briefly seen in a cutscene in the first Dragon Ball Z: Budokai video game.
Unnamed Fighter injured by Tien
This fighter was savagely beaten in the ring of an unnamed tournament held before the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament. As they fought in front of the large, cheering audience, Tien wins the fight, but instead of stopping when he has got the win, he breaks the man's leg mercilessly.
While searching for the Dragon Balls in the King Piccolo Saga, Tien, Chiaotzu and Master Roshi arrive at a near-vacated town. Tien knocks at the door of the house where the Dragon Ball is indicated to be. When the man's wife opens the door, Tien finds himself face-to-face with the ex-fighter. Sitting at a table, the man recognizes Tien. He says he suffered 13 broken bones and it took him 2 years to make his way back to his house after what Tien did to him.
While the man's wife calls the police, believing Tien is responsible for the series of murders being committed by Tambourine, Tien gives a heart-felt apology and asks for the Dragon Ball. The man laughs at him and refuses outright to have anything to do with Tien. Outside the house, Master Roshi and Chiaotzu note a bunch of police cars arriving. They bust into the house and wish to arrest Tien for the murder of all the martial artists. Master Roshi walks into the house to try to diffuse the situation. One officer recognizes him, and listens to Master Roshi as he vouches for Tien. Master Roshi is able to prove Tien's innocence and the police soon leave. Tien again asks for the Dragon Ball. Not trusting Tien, the man wearily predicts that the former Crane student will proceed to tear his humble house apart in his search for the object. Instead of getting mad, Tien grovels at the man's feet, begging him for forgiveness for his previous cruel actions and for the Dragon Ball which can help stop the current crisis, even offering to let the man take his revenge on him and break his arms if he so wishes. Surprised by Tien's humbleness, the man lowers his gun and grants Tien his forgiveness. He says that he may have the Dragon Ball, which his sleeping baby is currently holding.
Unnamed Namekian Warrior
