Capsule Corporation (カプセルコーポレーション Kapuseru Kōporēshon) is a company founded in Age 712,[2] and is run by Dr. Brief, Bulma's father. The corporation is based around, and takes its name from, the Hoi-Poi Capsules (also known as DynoCaps) invented by Dr. Brief himself.

Overview

Building

The Atrium

The Capsule Corporation headquarters, which is also the Brief family's home, is located in West City, with its address being WST 3338926 K. The building, and the surrounding area, is large enough to have held the whole of the Namekian race after Frieza destroyed their planet and until they are wished to New Namek.

Dr. Brief's lab

The dome shaped building has three floors and a basement.[3] The entrance is the lobby where the Receptionist is and that leads to the Atrium (nakaniwia) in the buildings interior, the space is nearly column free (which implies the house is monolithic) where dinosaurs, cats,[4] dogs,[4] and other animals live.[5] The Atrium contains a Sparring Arena,[3] and leads to the Capsule Room.[6] There are also the exhibit room,[6] the Central Computer Room (opened with a Red Access Card), the Security with a small jail, Dr. Brief's lab and workshop on level 01.[7] The Brief family's rooms, notably Bulma's room (where Tapion tells his history to Bulma),[5][8] are on level 02. On level 03, there are the West Tower and East Tower (opened with a Blue Access Card).[3]

Bulma's room

The storage room for Capsule Corporation is where Bulma found the Two-Star Ball before the start of the Dragon Ball story. There is a secret underground basement where Future Bulma built the Time Machine in her timeline. Also, a Gravity Machine[6] was built in the building between the end of the Cell Games Saga and the beginning of the Great Saiyaman Saga for Vegeta's training. It is used by Vegeta and his son Trunks during their preparation for the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament.

During the New Space-Time War inside the Pseudo Universe, a duplicate of the Capsule Corporation can be found in the duplicate of West City on the duplicate of Earth. This duplicate was later destroyed along with the rest of the Pseudo Universe after Fu is defeated by Super Saiyan God SS (Universe Tree Power).

Company

Due to the invention and production of the extremely popular and useful capsules, the Capsule Corporation is one of the largest, richest and most influential companies in the world. At one point, the Capsule Corporation and the Red Ribbon Army front company Red Pharmaceuticals were competitive rivals in the business race, but the creation of the DynoCaps from Capsule Corporation resulted in Red Pharmaceuticals losing to it.

In "The Strangest Robot" it is claimed that C-6 had been buried in Nemuria Ruins for 80 years by Age 761, which means that the Capsule Corp. had been around since at least Age 681.

Although Capsule Corp's primary product is the DynoCaps technology, the company also develops and produces many of the items found within capsules. This can be seen by vehicles and other items bearing the Capsule Corporation logo. Using the resources of Capsule Corporation, Bulma and Dr. Brief have created many useful items essential to the Dragon Team, including several interstellar spacecrafts, a Time Machine, and Gravity Machines. The company also produces computers, laptops and different products used for scientific research.

Due to the Brief family's long association with several alien visitors which began with Tights and her family meeting Jaco in Jaco the Galactic Patrolman and continued with Bulma's friendship with the Saiyan Goku, the Namekians, opposition to the Frieza Force, and Saiyan Prince Vegeta whom she eventually fell in love with and married, the company has gained access to various pieces of alien technology that they've managed to reverse engineer such as Battle Armor, Scouter, and Attack Ball. Bulma studied Jaco's Spaceship as a child while repairing it for him and even did a test flight herself. Bulma and Dr. Brief's also studied the Nameless Namek's Spaceship while adapting it for use by the Dragon Team and Dr. Brief's with the remains of Goku's Attack Ball later developed a spaceship with an engine capable of reaching Namek in six days . Additionally Bulma and Dr. Brief's studied Android 16 while repairing him and Bulma studied Android 17's blueprints gaining an understanding of Dr. Gero's scientific work in Android development, knowledge which they applied to more noble and/or peaceful purposes such as the potential medical applications for said technology or advancements in artificial intelligence, cybernetics, and/or robotics.

The Capsule Corporation logo

The Capsule Corporation logo is very simple, with just being two letters "C" and the company name. The logo is worn by the Capsule Corporation workers. Android 16 wears the Capsule Corporation logo over his Red Ribbon logo after being fixed by Bulma and her father. In Battle of Gods, it is revealed by Chi-Chi that Dr. Brief is the richest man in the world due to his company and inventions though Dr. Brief himself and his wife were ironically oblivious of this fact until Chi-Chi pointed it out to Mr. Satan when he mistook Dr. Brief for one of the catering staff at Bulma's birthday party. In Dragon Ball Super and Resurrection ‘F’, a female employee named Staff appears as one of the workers at the Capsule Corporation and during the God of Destruction Beerus Saga, interrupted Vegeta's gravity training in to inform him he had a phone call from Bulma whom was angry at Vegeta for missing her birthday party on the Princess Bulma.

Ranger Android 17 and the Capsule Corporation employed Android 18 arrive to offer assistance

During the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga, the Capsule Corporation supports Galactic Patrol and Deputized Dragon Team members by paying Android 18 10 million Zeni to work with the Galactic Patrol and her brother in confronting the Moro Corps invasion. When 18 reveals what the Capsule Corporation is paying her, Android 17 notes it makes it sound like their mercenaries even though he joined the fight to protect the Earth and nature as Planet Eater Moro is a threat to both. Like her brother, Android 18 is immune to Moro's Ki stealing powers making the two Androids ideal fighters to counter Seven-Three and Moro due to their infinite energy and lack of ki thus by employing her, the Capsule Corporation gives the Galactic Patrol another ally who can assist in combating Moro and the emotionless alien Android Seven-Three (who has copied Moro's abilities).

In Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the Capsule Corporation's old competitor Red Pharmaceuticals is revealed to have survived the Red Ribbon Army's destruction and their front business is currently lead by company president Magenta who acts its public face. Together with his trusted private chauffeur Carmine, Magenta seeks to resurrect the Red Ribbon Army and recruits Dr. Hedo to create new Red Ribbon Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. It is also revealed that Red Pharmaceuticals has apparently been spying on the Dragon Team as they have video screens depicting Vegeta wearing his pink "Badman" shirt, Goku, Piccolo, and Majin Buu.
