Cardinal Mutchie Mutchie
The High Priest of the Luud Cult. He commands Luud's followers to seek out the Black Star Dragonballs to resurrect Luud. Is actually one of Dr. Myuu's Machine Mutants
- Actually a Doombot: When his "body" is destroyed, his whip is revealed to be the actual Mutchie, and transforms into his true form.
- Sinister Minister
- Whip It Good: His whip can transform people into dolls to be fed to Luud. When his true form is revealed, his whips are actually part of his arms, and can telepathically move objects as well as electro shocks.
The "oracle" of the Luud Cult. Was the one who originally recruited the followers. Was really a subordinate of Dr. Myuu.
- Cult: The leader of the Luud Cult.
- Dirty Coward
- Punny Name: A play on "doll otaku".
- Sissy Villain: He plays with dolls.
- It's implied that he's heterosexual, since he falls in love with Pan in doll form.
- You Have Failed Me: Dr. Myuu transforms him into one of the sacrificial dolls after he activates Luud (another Machine Mutant) too early.
- Also after transforming back to normal, he tries to make an escape, only for General Rilldo to kill him.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Unable to wait any longer to find the Black Star Dragonballs, he instead transforms all of his followers into dolls to be fed to Luud.
Baby and Super 17 Sagas
A machine mutant and leader of Dr. Myuu's machine armies. Manages to give Goku, Pan and Trunks trouble once they land on planet M-2.
- Artificial Human
- Bad Boss: Inverted to the point of arguably giving him Hidden Depths. He actually treats his subordinates and underlings fairly-well, and doesn't hesitate to give them praise when he thinks they deserve it. Dude must have read up on Sun Tzu.
- Badass: Goku points out that, even in his base form, Rilldo is even stronger than Majin Buu.
- Bad Liar: To Goku (who can tell he's pretending to be far weaker than he really is), but not to the audience.
- The Dragon: To Dr. Myuu
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: His character is shown to be able to use the metal covering the entire surface of Planet M-2 to reconstruct a new body after his current one has been destroyed, yet he dies after a blast from Goku, Pan, and Trunks. Even though there's still metal all over the planet, he's just dead.
- Expy: Of Buu and Dabura. His powers are basically a combination of the two.
- Extra Ore Dinary
- Four-Star Badass
- From a Single Cell: His consciousness can inhabit and form a body from any metal on the planet.
- Knight of Cerebus: His arrival is pretty much the point where the series became more serious.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner: In his introductory scene in the Funimation Dub.
- Punny Name: On "drill".
- Taken for Granite: Can fire a beam that turns whatever it hits into metal.
A scientist whose plotting universal domination with his mutant machine armies, headed by his ultimate creation Baby which he needs the Black Star Dragon Balls to complete. This of course brings him into conflict with Goku, Pan and Trunks. As it turns out though, he was actually a machine that Baby created to continue his development. Somewhere along the way Myuu forgot this and developed his own sentience. After being killed, he meets up with Dr. Gero in Hell to plot their revenge against Goku but that doesn't work out as planned either.
- Artificial Human
- Be Careful What You Wish For: His last words to Super 17; Myuu tells him to show Goku and 18 that he can't be controlled. Super 17 agrees, and promptly annhilates Myuu.
- Cool Shades
- Disc One Final Boss
- Evil Redhead
- Expy: of Dr. Gero. Later averted when he teams up with Gero himself.
- Mad Scientist
- Voodoo Shark: When Baby kills him, he is told that Baby himself created him and the other machine mutants in order to create him. The writers seem to try and explain away this logic by giving Baby the back story that he was originally a bio-robot fetus that was launched into space by the Tuffles so that it might one day destroy the Saiyans. If anything this further adds to the argument of those who question how Baby could have made the machine mutants while still a fetus.
A parasitic being created by Dr. Myuu to conquer the universe In reality he was created by the Truffles, the race that Saiyans destroyed and whose planet they took over, to avenge them
. He manages to break free and body surf his way to Earth. Once there he takes over the whole planet, making Vegeta his main host. Goku suffers a grueling battle against him due to his new child form. But some quick training in the Other World give him the power he need to fight and eventually beat Baby, freeing Vegeta from Baby and blasting him into the sun as he trying to escape.
- Batman Gambit: His earlier possession of Trunks, made him realize that the Super Saiyan transformation was the easiest point to take over someone (it was later revealed that he laid a mind-control egg in Trunks' brain as he left anyway). He then proceeded to possess the remaining Saiyans on Earth, settling at Vegeta; the next strongest after Goku, then brainwashing the entire Earth. He also left Goku and co. to find all the Black Star Dragon Balls so they'll return eventually to Earth and he takes the Dragon Balls to make his wish, while Goku and Pan face off against the entire world apart from Buu, Uub and Hercule!
- Bash Brothers: Baby Gohan & Baby Goten
- Blob Monster: Baby is able to liquefy his body and seep into any cut on a person's body in order to gain control of them.
- Body Surf: He jumps around from body to body before settling on Vegeta as a permanent host. His old hosts remain under his control anyway.
- Combined Energy Attack: His Revenge Death Ball, like an evil version of the Spirit Bomb. It's powered by all of the hatred of his followers, and he even takes a stance similar to the former Trope Namer when charging it in the anime and Infinite World.
- Dropped a Bridge on Him / Out of Character: After fighting Goku for numerous episodes as a Great Ape, Baby just leaves Vegeta's body, gets on a ship, trys to make an escape, and then gets blasted into the sun by Goku. The thing about that is not only is it anti-climatic, it also subverts what Baby as a character was doing up to the point. Instead of running away he would have instead realized Goku was stronger than his current host and through some underhanded means try to acquire his body as he had with Goten, Gohan, and Vegeta. And even if he knew that wouldn't work, his hatred for the Saiyans was too great for him to just leave. Really his character would of at least tried to blow himself up or something.
- The Emperor: After taking control of every person on planet earth he uses the Dragon Balls to recreate planet Tuffle and then establishes his own empire on it.
- Evil Costume Switch: He gradually changes Vegeta's wardrobe and appearance while dorming in him, eventually barely resembling the Saiyan prince. The picture here is of his final appearance before becoming a Golden Oozaru.
- From a Single Cell
- Hijacking Cthulhu: In the arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes, Baby becomes Baby Janemba after infecting Super Janemba.
- One-Winged Angel: Transforming into a Golden Great Ape when faced with Super Saiyan 4 Goku.
- People Puppets
- Puppeteer Parasite
- Revenge Before Reason: His hatred for the Saiyans makes him take some really insane routes. Pan even points out the Saiyans who wiped out his race are long gone, Baby replies he doesn't care.
- Hurl It into the Sun: His ultimate fate. Say hi to Cooler and Broly up there!
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Subverted; when he becomes a Golden Oozaru, he goes on a rampage on his own planet, like Oozarus are wont to do, but when Goku questions this he reveals that he, as just a parasite inside Vegeta, is unaffected, and was just pretending. Of course, arguably double subverted since anyone who decides to pretend to be insane to justify testing out new powers on his own people wantonly is probably rather insane anyway, and he does act much more rashly and impulsively while in this form.
A combination of the regular Android 17
and Hell Fighter 17
which was built by Dr. Gero and Dr. Myuu. Has much more power than his normal form that he pretty much defeats all the Z-Fighters that come against him, including a Super Sayian 4 Goku. However a combined effort from 18 and Goku finally brings him down.
- Achilles' Heel: His one weakness is that he's vulnerable to physical attack while absorbing energy attacks. It also helped that Android 17 is implied to have forced him to reveal this weakness and allow himself to be killed.
- Artificial Human
- Badass: He stomps all over the Z-fighters like it's nothing, and then takes out Super Saiyan 4 Goku without too much trouble. It's only through his Achilles' Heel that he's finally defeated.
- Driven to Suicide/Heroic Sacrifice: It's implied that somewhere deep inside Super 17 was the brother that 18 loved, and he let himself be killed by Goku's Dragon Fist Explosion technique, since he couldn't fight Dr. Myuu's programming completely. Thankfully, the wish that revives the victims of the whole Super 17 and Shadow Dragon fiasco also includes the original Android 17.
- Energy Absorption
- Fighting from the Inside: Android 17 is implied to have been doing this.
- Fusion Dance: Created from the merger of the original Android 17 and the Hell Fighter 17 Myuu and Gero jointly created in Hell.
- Gatling Good: He's got two of them hidden in each arm, ala 16 and his blasters.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How he met his end against Goku.
- Interrupted Cooldown Hug: Because of her anger over Krillin's death, Android 18 manages to be both the loved one who gets Super 17 to cool his jets and the impetuous shooter who stops his Heel-Face Turn.
- Laughing Mad: Played up a bit more in his video game appearances.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: He did this to Gohan, Goten, Trunks, Vegeta and Uub at the same time.
- Non-Malicious Monster: Like the original Android 17 before him, Super 17 never actually shoots to kill while curb-stomping the Z-Fighters. It's only during the fight against Goku that he starts actually going for finishers on anyone not named Dr. Gero.
- Strong As He Needs To Be: Has this as a superpower. One minute, he has a bit of trouble with Super Saiyan (Kid) Goku; the next he's owning Super Saiyan 4 Goku. Justified somewhat by his energy absorption.
Shadow Dragon Saga
The living, breathing incarnations of all of the negative energy that had accumulated in the Dragon Balls due to the Z Fighters excessive usage of them.
Tropes that apply to the Dragons as a whole:
- Create Your Own Villain: The Shadow Dragons were all created because Goku and the Z Fighters excessively used the Dragon Balls, allowing the negative energy within to accumulate and eventually spawn them.
- Fire, Ice, Lightning: Nuova, Eis, and Rage, in that order.
- Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons
- Made of Evil: They are the living incarnations of the Dragon Balls' accumulated negativity.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Syn, Nuova, and Eis are the only three who possess the necessary martial arts skills to pose a legitimate threat to Goku. The other four rely on their Elemental Powers and trickery to fight him.
Black Smoke Shenron
The product of the Dragon Balls' accumulated negative energy, he serves no purpose aside from spawning the seven Shadow Dragons.
The two-star dragon that was created by the wish that revive one of Goku's allies (in this case Upa, Bora's father who was killed by Tao). He is a dragon that spread pollution wherever he goes. His element is pollution.
- Breath Weapon
- Dub Name Change: Originally Ryan Shenron.
- Fat Bastard
- Gradual Grinder: He wears his foes down with his smog while enduring hits.
- Making a Splash: Has the power of controlling polluted water and can gain energy from swamps.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: At first looked completely weak, but then revealed that his pollution was weakening Goku and Pan. After enduring their attacks long enough for it to take effect, he nearly killed them.
- One-Winged Angel: Subverted. He looks like he's going to and the heroes expect it... but he then states that while some of the Shadow Dragons can, he can't.
- Poisonous Person: The poisonous gases from his swamp can knock out even Goku.
- Stone Wall: His main strength is that he's able to soak up punishment until his pollution can weaken his enemy to the point he can overpower them.
- Warm Up Boss: Aside from his little trick, he's rather pathetic.
The five star dragon created when Goku was wished back to life to combat the Saiyans. Starts off as rather puny but, using an electric slime, can grow to a much more massive form. His element is thunder.
The Six Star Dragon, created (much to her chagrin) from Oolong's wish for woman's panties. She the only female dragon of the seven with the power over wind. Fools a local fishing village into believing she was a sea princess named Princess Oto, but Goku and Pan reveal her true colors.
- Blow You Away
- Bishonen Line / One-Winged Angel: Much like Zarbon before her, she prefers to stay in a more aesthetically appealing form than her hideous true form. Subverted, however, in that she seems to be able to fight to her full power in this form anyway.
- Designated Girl Fight: Fights Goku to a standstill, but gets set up for the kill by a lucky Kamehameha from Pan, of all people.
- Dub Name Change: Originally Ryu Shenron.
- Luminescent Blush: Her entire face turns bright red out of embarassment, twice. Once when Goku presses the issue of her origin, forcing her to admit she was born from the underwear wish, and again after realizing her attack inflicted full Clothing Damage upon Goku (Out of angry disgust, not the usual application of this trope).
- Making a Splash: Mostly due to the fact that she uses wind to manipulate seawater.
- Mythology Gag: Introduced antagonizing a village when the wish that birthed her was done by Oolong who was also introduced antagonizing a village.
- Hidden Evil: Created from a selfish wish with good intention she comes offering prosperity to a sea town by bringing in lots of fish. Unfortunately this destroys their economy and pollutes the land from the rotting fish.
- Old Shame: She is completely embarrassed by the wish that spawned her, and Goku recalling said wish fondly and laughing about it sets off her Berserk Button.
- Shout-Out: Her disguise refers to the legend of Otohime and Ryuujin. In the Japanese sub her name is actually Ryu-Shenron.
- Spam Attack: To the point that Goku asks if she even knows any other moves.
- The Smurfette Principle
- Winged Humanoid: Her true form is actually the one of a ugly, winged, gargoyle-like dragon.
The Seven Star Dragon, created when Bulma wished back the people Vegeta killed while under the influence of Babidi. He's a mole-like dragon that has the abilities to absorb any person and make their power his own. His element is earth.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: His true form is utterly puny, however.
- Climax Boss: Marks the transition from the less serious first half of the saga to the more serious second act, and is the first dragon to last more than one episode and pose an actual threat.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Can cause earthquakes by digging and his attacks can summon pillars of light from the ground.
- Dub Name Change: Originally Chi Shenron.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: The above mentioned pillar of light attack, though he did it on purpose. See Obfuscating Stupidity below. He ends up defeated for real, though, when his attempt at mocking Goku by showing him Pan one last time gives Goku a chance to pull Pan out and finish him off.
- I Surrender, Suckers: How he absorbs Pan.
- Jackass Genie: He brings up his technical status as a wish-granting dragon up to a battered and beaten Goku, in a chilling way. It ends up not working out so well for him, though.
- Knight of Cerebus: The first three dragons were all silly jokes of a battle, and the last three are all rather serious. Naturon sits in the middle, and begins the fight just as quirky as the first three before shifting to a deadly serious tone after revealing his trump card.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: He initially appears to be a clown who is more interested in digging holes rather than fighting, but as soon as he absorbs Pan, he shows his true colors and starts using Pan's powers to blow up numerous buildings and kill several innocents for fun. If he hadn't fallen for Goku's Wounded Gazelle Gambit, he would have won for sure.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: He's actually smarter than he looks, feigning defeat to have a shot at absorbing Pan.
- One-Winged Angel: After absorbing Pan, he turns into a larger, more vicious version of himself.
- Power Copying
- Villain Ball: He falls for Goku's Wounded Gazelle Gambit near the end of their fight, allowing Goku to save Pan and give him his well-earned No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
The Four Star Dragon, created when King Piccolo wished for his youth back. Unlike the other dragons, Nuova fights fairly and doesn't rely on dirty tricks. More than likely this is due to the fact that the four star ball was a treasured heirloom of Goku's. May also have something to do with the fact that he is the only one of the dragons created from a wish by an evil being for an evil purpose, with evil consequences. He also has power over fire.
- Anti-Villain: Type IV: He's only a villain because he's a Shadow Dragon and thus needed to be stopped, and other than that does not do anything villainous.
- Back from the Dead: Briefly against Omega Shenron, only to get killed again.
- Cain and Abel: He's the Abel.
- Dub Name Change: Originally Su Shenron.
- Flash Step: He can out-Super Speed both Goku and Vegeta at Super Saiyan 4.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Which sadly didn't work.
- Honor Before Reason: He prefers a fair fight, and after knocking Pan out, lets her go and spares her when he could have easily killed her. Because of the latter, Goku decides to give him a freebie when he has him at his mercy during their fight.
- Light 'em Up: He can summon a giant lens and shoot a super hot sun ray at his foes.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: The same lens can also hurt him if something such as Solar Flare is used against him due to its power being amplified.
- Idiot Ball: After his resurrection, he's about to incinerate Omega as part of his and Goku's plan, but his non-stop bragging about how he's fireproof gives Omega the idea to use Naturon's power of possession on him to reabsorb his Dragon Ball and survive the blast.
- Noble Demon: The only dragon not to resort to trickery to win
- Playing with Fire: His power
- Power Limiter: Shedding his armor causes his already formidable power and speed to skyrocket.
- Sacrificial Lion: He planned on continuing his fair fight with Goku for the ball... and then he ends up being killed from behind by Syn Shenron, proving just how ruthless Syn Shenron truly is.
- Save the Villain: Was willing to negotiate with Goku about sparing Eis's life, as a brother. Then Eis went and ruined it anyway.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: With Eis
- Super Speed: Probably the fastest character in the franchise, being able to easily outspeed Goku and Vegeta.
- Token Good Teammate: The most honorable of the Shadow Dragons by a long shot
- Walking Wasteland: He's met in a desert-like city. His body is so hot that anything that makes contact with him is destroyed, until he sheds his heat armor to fight at full power.
The Three Star Dragon, created when a wish was used to erase the memories of the whole Buu fiasco. He's the twin brother of Nuova, not to mention his complete opposite, using any advantage to win a fight. He also has power over ice.
Syn Shenron/Omega Shenron
The One Star Dragon created from the wish to revive everyone killed by Frieza and his men. Not surprisingly, he's the strongest and vilest of all the dragons, even going to Super Saiyan 4 hardly phases him much (Not helped by Goku being temporarily blind). Doesn't get any better when he absorbs all the Dragon Balls to become Omega Shenron, the ultimate dragon. In the end it takes energy from all over the universe to form the Spirit Ball needed to stop him. He has no element unless you count his pure negative energy.
- All Your Powers Combined: Absorbing the other six dragon balls gives him all the special powers of the six lesser dragons plus a general boost in overall power.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: See Villainous Breakdown below.
- Badass Moustache
- Bad Boss: Towards Nuova Shenron.
- Beard of Evil: It's made of spikes.
- Bishonen Line: While the other Shadow Dragons are fairly monstrous, Syn is a handsome, burly humanoid who looks like he's wearing armor. Naturally, he's the strongest and most vicious of the seven.
- Casting a Shadow: Though he mainly uses generic ki attacks and martial arts, he does have a few attacks centered around evilness.
- Combined Energy Attack: His Negative Karma Ball attack is composed of all the sins of the world and its people. Gogeta counters it by booting it away with a positive energy-charged kick. And of course in the end, Syn is destroyed by a Spirit Bomb, too.
- Curbstomp Cushion: Goku was hopelessly outmatched against Omega, but his Dragon Fist attack was able to make Omega scream in pain and even blast him to bits. After reforming, Omega admits that it was a very painful attack, even if it was not enough.
- Omega doesn't get his own cushion from his beatdown by Gogeta, however; an attack that seems to at least be discomforting Gogeta turns out to just have been him treating it like a massage.
- Dub Name Change: Originally Ii Shenron.
- Establishing Character Moment / You Have Failed Me: Poor Nuova.
- Final Boss: If you can ignore Lord Yao. Also, his base design is more impressive than the rest of the previous Big Bads.
- From a Single Cell: Thanks to Rage Shenron's Electrical Slime powers. Very Majin Buu-esque, even being a pink slime while reforming. He only uses this twice, though, once to show how outclassed Goku was by surviving a Dragon Fist and once to just barely survive Gogeta's Big Bang Kamehameha.
- Hannibal Lecture: When Goku calls him out on killing Nuova, one of his own kind, Syn promptly declares that he has no right to criticize his own creation, reminding Goku that the entire reason that he and the other Shadow Dragons came to be is because Goku and his friends overused the Dragon Balls, further driving in the nail by reminding him that the Old Kai explicitly warned him not to keep doing so, but Goku didn't listen. While Goku doesn't deny his accusations, he nonetheless insists that, even if he did create the Shadow Dragons, he never once used the Dragon Balls for his own gain.
- Made of Evil: Syn is made of all the negative energy the Dragon Balls accumulated over the years. Yes, the source of all hope creates the ultimate bringer of doom in the series.
- Meaningful Name: Syn sounds very similar to "sin." As he is the ultimate Shadow Dragon and the evilest of them, this similarity actually makes some sense.
- Notice how there are seven dragon balls?
- His name is Syn and he's the One Star Dragon. Original Sin, anyone?
- Made even more significant by Fun with Acronyms above.
- No One Could Survive That: He's the only villain who survived Goku's "Dragon Fist" attack.
- No True Scotsman: His reasoning for offing Nuova, because it's not the Shadow Dragon's way to be honorable.
- No Sell: Immune to the Solar Flare.
- The Nth Doctor: In the Funimation dub, Syn Shenron is voiced by Bob Carter, but Omega Shenron is voiced by Christopher Sabat.
- Omnicidal Maniac: If let loose, his mere evil power will destroy everything.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Like Frieza before him, he derogatorily calls Goku a "monkey."
- Power Copying: After eating the Dragonballs he can use the powers of all the Shadow Dragons.
- Power Echoes: As Omega Shenron, has this perpetually.
- Shock and Awe: His Dragon Thunder attack which he uses to vicious effect on Vegeta right after impaling Vegeta through the arms on his spikes. in Budokai 3 and Infinite World he summons a lightning bolt instead.
- Spikes of Villainy: On his back and elbows. They aren't just for show, either.
- Unholy Nuke: His strongest attack, an orange ball of energy made from all the accumulated sins of humanity. Or something like that. Referred to as either the Negative Karma Ball or the Minus Energy Power Ball.
- Villainous Breakdown: When Goku prepares the Universal Spirit Bomb and, to his shock, he's unable to stop it. He gets more and more desperate until finally swallowing his pride and begging for his life. Goku does not listen.
