is a supporting protagonist in the Dragon Ball series. He had
a short-lived rivalry with Goku when they
first met and trained under Master Roshi, but they quickly became lifelong
best friends. One of the most powerful and talented Human martial artists on
Earth, Krillin is courageous, a faithful ally and good-natured. He is a
prominent Z Fighter, despite usually being overpowered by the major enemies.
His short stature and baldness (with the exception of when he grows out his
hair in the Majin Buu Saga onwards) aid him in his ability to provide comic
relief during tense moments. During the latter half of Dragon Ball Z,
he largely retires from fighting, opting to settle down with his family
instead, becoming the husband of Android
18 and the father of Marron. However, he returns to his lifestyle as a
warrior later on in Dragon Ball Super.
