Fangs the Vampire was born in Age 176.
Fortuneteller Baba Saga
Main article: Fortuneteller Baba Saga
When Goku and his friends try to find one of the Dragon Balls, which does not appear on the Dragon Radar, they go to Fortuneteller Baba to predict where the Dragon Ball is. Normally, a prophecy from Fortuneteller Baba costs Ƶ10,000,000 zeni, unless, all five of her fighters are defeated. As they do not have enough money, they must defeat the five fighters, and Fangs the Vampire is the first one.
After Fangs the Vampire performs an odd dance, Krillin challenges Fangs with a smile on his face. The vampire quickly turns into a bat, zipping across the area too fast for Krillin to see him. As Krillin is surprised, Fangs sucks out almost all blood he has. This makes Krillin lose balance and wobble around. Fangs kicks him out of the arena, thus eliminating Krillin. Later, Fangs the Vampire is defeated by Puar and Upa (using the mythological weapons against vampires such as garlic breath and the shape of a cross). When Fangs turns into a bat, Puar, using shapeshifting, turns into a hand and swats Fangs into the water, with Fangs losing the match. Fang's alternate name, Dracula Man, comes from the titular vampire from Bram Stoker's Dracula.
During his fight against Krillin, Fangs flew around him in his bat form and was able to defeat him only after he weakened him when he sucked his blood after getting him by surprise. He did not actually overpower Krillin with any of his fighting skills.
Fangs is not a particularly strong fighter and seems to only defeat his opponents by tricking them or sucking blood from them. He was defeated easily when Puar shape-shifted into a hand to swat him, after he was scared by Upa's garlic breath and how Upa used the shape of a cross to intimidate him.
