Kaede Beniya (紅谷 楓 Beniya Kaede) is a human girl that is a main character in Akira Toriyama's Jiya manga, and also makes a cameo in Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission.


Kaede is a stuck up girl who smokes and drinks a lot. Her servant Yukio Kyumonji has a crush on her even though she is bossy and mean to him. She has a temperament similar to Bulma's getting angry at Jiya for hitting her when he thought she was too young to drink alcohol and she is shown to be vain & sensitive about her looks specifically her breast size with her even wondering if the Galactic King could increase her breast size after hearing how powerful he was from Jiya.

Though she initially thought Jiya was perverted for asking to see her naked, she later reconsiders realizing that he may have just been curious which leads her to impulsively flash Yukio accidentally as she wasn't aware that Jiya had left Yukio's body. Though she is initially angry at Yukio for seeing her topless (as she was still wearing panties when she flashed him) she later becomes curious if he finds her attractive and blushes when he reveals he has a crush on her.



Main article: Jiya (manga) Yukio and Kaede's car runs over some bandits' caltrop trap in the mountains and Jiya appeared, saving them from bandits. Yukio thanks Jiya for saving them as Kaede drinks alcohol from a flask, causing Jiya to punch her, as he notes that according to the old scrolls about Earth, women's breasts grow as they mature and assumes Kaede is too young to drink due to her breast size, though Yukio confirms she is 21.

While walking with Jiya to a nearby town, they stay a hotel and Kaede decides to go take a Bath in her room while Jiya borrowed Yukio's body to go out and investigate. After bathing, she is in her room wearing a bathrobe, Jiya is back still in Kyummonji's body and asks to see her naked but gets mad and kicks him out. Afterwards, a Mogan appears in her window and attempts to kidnap her, but Jiya manages to rescue her.

She goes back to her hotel room and realizes she may have been wrong about Jiya being prevented for asking to see her naked, assuming the alien was just curious, drops her robe showing herself to Yukio finding out that its the real him and not Jiya making her mad. Yukio tells her to get dressed before telling her what happened and that Vamp is coming to destroy the town due to Jiya killing his fleas. Kaede demands he get a car to flee in. While they are getting ready to leave, Yukio notices Kaede is carrying a gun. Yukio manages to convince Kaede that they need to help Jiya which she agrees given that Jiya had saved her life twice. As the drive back to assist Jiya, Kaede inquires if he found her attractive after seeing her naked, causing him to say she looks as wonderful as a goddess and confess that he's been attracted to her since he started working for her three years ago, causing Kaede to blush. Later on, during Jiya's fight with Steth who is in Vamp's body, her alcohol is used to revive Jiya's suit while she distracts Steth. Steth left Vamp's body and tried to possess Yukio, but was shot and killed by Kaede.

Yukio and Kaede later drive away in their car, with Jiya in the back seat. Jiya tells them that Steth had come to Earth to find out if it was worth saving, as an asteroid would destroy it in one year. He says that the Galactic King will stop it now that they know it was worth saving.
