    Giru (ギル, Giru), originally known as T2006 or DB4649T2006RS, is a Machine Mutant that accompanies Goku, Pan and Trunks on their quest to find the Black Star Dragon Balls. He is best friends with Pan; however, he is frequently the recipient of a lot of abuse (both verbal and physical) at the hands of Pan, which makes him somewhat fearful of her. In the Japanese and Blue Water dubs he is called Gill.


    Black Star Dragon Ball SagaEdit

    Giru dancing, on Beehay

    Trunks, Goku and Pan first met Giru on Imecka while he was on the brink of death. After eating the Dragon Radar for energy, he tried to escape from them, but was ultimately caught by Goku. After that, they found out that the radar integrated into his software. Giru then helps the group on various planets (Monmaasu, Gelbo, Beehay, Planet Luud, Rudeeze, etc).


    Giru searching for Pan on Rudeeze

    Upon arriving on Planet M-2, he betrays them but is actually pretending as ordered by Trunks. Giru was initially programmed to find and lure the Saiyans to the planet in order to use their DNA but due to a memory failure, he forgot the entire thing until the team nears Planet M-2. He tells Trunks the truth of his mission and together, they decide to make the 'inhabitants' of the planet believe that Giru is acting according to their programming, by giving them data to capture Goku, Pan and Trunks.

    After he sets the trio free, they find Dr. Myuu's evil creation Baby and seemingly destroy him. Trunks and Goku then finished off General Rilldo, an unstoppable mutant who can control metal, and leave the planet for good.

    Baby SagaEdit

    Upon returning to Earth and discovering that Baby has taken over, Giru attacks Baby Vegeta with a missile, only to be "killed" with a single energy blast. Later, Mr. Satan and Pan discover his "corpse", and a grief-stricken Pan takes it with them. After Baby's defeat, he is repaired by Trunks.

    Super 17 SagaEdit

    Giru during the battle against Rage Shenron

    During the Shadow Dragon saga, Giru went with Goku and Pan to search for the seven Shadow Dragons, using his built-in Dragon Radar to track the evil beasts. He was instrumental in the defeat of Haze Shenron, as his mechanical nature made him immune to the two-star dragon's debilitating pollution. Consequently, Giru was able to drag Goku and Pan to a freshwater geyser at the bottom of the polluted lake they were thrown into, allowing his friends to clean the water and regain their strength.

    He was fatally damaged by Eis Shenron, though he was resurrected when Goku made his last wish upon Shenron.

    Special abilitiesEdit


    Giru's Dragon Radar function

    For defense, Giru has a small but powerful rocket launcher in his chest cavity. He can shoot a little grappling claw from his stomach. He also has the unique ability to reverse General Rilldo's Metal Breath beam victims via a green beam.

    After eating the Dragon Radar, the radar itself appears on Giru's back.
