Directory: CharactersVillainsGinyu Force


Bonyu (ボニュー Bonyū) was a former Ginyu Force member who appears in a short sub-quest[1] in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Appearance

Bonyu is a chubby and busty member of the Brench-seijin race, the same race as her former comrade Jeice.[2] She has light red skin, a long white hair ponytail, and thin, angular eyebrows.

She wears the female version of the V-Neck Battle Armor of the Ginyu Force with thigh protection. She also uses a green Scouter of the same model/generation that the Ginyu Force used in Dragon Ball Z.

Personality

Bonyu is an incredibly adept individual, being highly intelligent and a capable warrior. However, she was lacking in Ginyu's view of charisma and could not keep up with the Ginyu Force's posing which Bonyu found detestable.

Biography

Pre-Dragon Ball Z

At some point, Bonyu became part of the Frieza Force, she was recruited by Captain Ginyu as the first member of his elite Ginyu Force. However, she couldn't keep up with the Ginyu Force's habit of weird posing, which she found detestable and asked to leave the group, though she remained a serving soldier in the ranks of the Frieza Force.

Other Dragon Ball stories

Kakarot

Main article: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot The Battle Data of Bonyu is inside the Ginyu Force space pod that Goku used to escape from Namek's destruction.

During the training period in anticipation for the arrival of the Androids, Bulma and the Female Researcher obtained the data when doing research on the pod. At the request of Bulma, the Female Researcher tells Goku of this discovery and that the battle data is incomplete and will need tested several times. Goku fights the Virtual Fighting Data construct of Bonyu and manages to defeat her.

Power

As a former member of the Ginyu Force, Bonyu is strong enough to join such an elite mercenary force.

Video games

The Virtual Fighting Data replica of her is able to fight Goku (during the period where he was training in anticipation for the Androids), though she is defeated by him in the end.

Her virtual fighting data replica shows Bonyu is an intelligent and tactical fighter (hence her epitaph "The Brains") who has a wide variety of techniques, taking fighting more seriously than the rest of the Ginyu Force as she doesn't leave herself open by posing (something which Goku criticized members for when he noted that they were constantly letting their guard down which he was able to take advantage of such as when he took out Recoome while he was posing as part of his Recoome Ultra Fighting Bomber and when he sucker punched Jeice in the face). As a result her data suggests she would have been a more challenging opponent for Goku if she had faced him on Namek during the period he fought the Ginyu Force.

Her troubles with posing and lack of charisma ultimately lead her to leave the Ginyu Force. Her Virtual Fighting Data shows that her distain for posing actually benefits her in battle as her lack of posing and serious tactical fighting style leaves far less openings as noted by Goku, the other Ginyu Force members habit of posing and posturing in mid-battle caused them to leave themselves open to attack.

Trivia

  • She was designed by Akira Toriyama.
  • Just like every other member of the Brench-seijin race in the English dub, she has a regional English accent (Bonyu's being Australian just like Jeice)
  • Her name, like the rest of the Ginyu Force's names, is a pun on a dairy product. It means 母乳 "breast milk" in Japanese.
    • The pun may also be a reference to her position as the only female Ginyu Force member.
    • The pun may also be a tongue-in-cheek reference to her large bust.
