Dragon Ball Wiki

The Dragon Radar-proof box was created by Shu[1] to hold a Dragon Ball found by Emperor Pilaf during the Red Ribbon Army Saga.


The box is made of a material that completely blocks the small amount of energy Dragon Balls give off as a signal to their location.


After being bested by Goku and Bulma the last time around with their superior Dragon Radar (and in the anime, being forced to hand over his Dragon Ball to Colonel Silver of the Red Ribbon Army), Pilaf decides to find a way to foil any further attempts of collecting the Dragon Balls by anyone but himself. To find the Dragon Ball located within it, Goku, Krillin, Yamcha, Puar, and Upa have to go to Fortuneteller Baba to learn its whereabouts. The Dragon Radar-proof box is not seen again after Pilaf's plan surrounding the box fails.

Video Game Appearances[]

In Shōnen-hen, it is an item.


  • According to Pilaf, he wanted to call it the Dragon Radar-proof lunchbox but he apparently couldn't because "lunchbox" was copyrighted.[2]
