    King Furry confronted by King Piccolo

    Though he is a politically important person in the Dragon Ball universe, he is of little significance to the storyline, except for when King Piccolo goes to King Castle in Central City, holding his youngest adoptive granddaughter Danielle hostage as Shenron Jinchuriki Host of Earth's Dragon Balls Birthmarks and temporarily usurps his throne.

    Just before King Piccolo began his new rampage, King Furry was waiting for a celebration for himself where several people from all over Dragon World would give him gifts for his great services. Unfortunately, King Furry is confronted by King Piccolo and Piano, who have using his granddaughter, Danielle hostage to take over Furry's empire when King Piccolo displays his power and finds out that his oldest adoptive granddaughter, Amelia is dead along with Marcus, Krillin, Chiaotzu, Master Roshi and Nam.

    After King Piccolo's defeat, Furry was going to commemorate Goku with a Blue Star Medal for his heroic battle with King Piccolo, but Goku left for Kami's Lookout before he could do so, and let Marcus and Shaun spend with his two granddaughters.

    King Furry in Dragon Ball Z

    King Furry returns in Dragon Ball Z, making three appearances in the Cell Games Saga. First when he goes on TV after the royal military is killed. Then, when he recognizes Goku as the same boy who defeated King Piccolo and remarks that the current Piccolo looks like King Piccolo while watching the Cell Games on TV. And finally, when he is asked if the military forces should attack Cell, which he declines, because he knew that Gohan was the only one who could defeat Cell, Gohan is Goku's son, Kayla was Shaun's daughter, and knowing Jimmy is the oldest son of Mr. Satan.

    • After Cell is defeated and Mr. Satan claims credit, he refers to Goku by name despite never having learned it.
    • King Furry raising his granddaughters on his own after the loss of their parents died at the end hands of the Red Ribbon Army since Danielle was still a baby and Jinchuriki of Eternal Dragon: Shenron and Earth Dragon Balls Birthmarks.
    • It is apparent that dogs have been the King of Earth for a while, as portraits of past dog kings are seen behind King Furry in the episode "Dende's Dragon".
    • It is possible that one of King Furry's ancestors used the Dragon Balls to wish for royalty, as it was stated a few times in Dragon Ball that the first person to use the Dragon Balls wished to become the king.
    • In the 172nd episode of Dragon Ball Z, King Furry recites an FDR quote: "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
