According to the special magazine Dragon Ball: Bouken Special, Ninja Murasaki's four brothers are named Kon, Aka, Nao, and Cha. Nao means "blue", Aka means "red", Kon means "navy blue", and "Cha" means "brown" in Japanese. Those colors mixed with each other gives purple, the meaning of "Murasaki" in Japanese.
The four were supposedly "clones" of the original Murasaki but, in reality, they are his identical brothers. They each wield a different weapon. They distract Goku while Murasaki escapes. Goku manages to defeat all of them with punches, kicks, and the last one with a Power Pole whack to the head.
Dr. Slump remakeEdit
Ninja Murasaki and his four brothers appear in the crossover episode "Gokuu-kun Arale no Gakkou de Dai Pinch!" of the 1997 Dr. Slump remake. When Goku arrives in Penguin Village with all the Dragon Balls in his knapsack, except one that Arale Norimaki had found, Murasaki and his brothers attempt to get them all from Goku but are defeated by Arale and Goku working together.
