Emperor Pilaf in the crowd

Emperor Pilaf (ピラフ) is a greedy short imp from the Dragon Ball series. He has two minions Shu and Mai.


In Dragon Ball, Pilaf always tries to use the Dragon Balls to take over the world, but he usually fails due to being stopped by Son Goku and his friends.

Pilaf makes a minor appearance in Dr. Slump and Arale-chan: N-cha! Love Comes From Penguin Village where he is in a crowd with Mai, Shu, Oolong, Lunch, Tori-Bot, King Nikochan & his servant, and Pink.
