This castle is seen various times during the Dragon Ball series, but most notably when King Piccolo takes it over as the Earth's new ruler. It becomes the place where Tien Shinhan challenges Drum to a fight, and where Goku fights and kills King Piccolo. During their deadly battle, Goku threw King Piccolo into the castle. King Piccolo destroyed the original castle and an identical castle was later built to take its place, but it was later destroyed twice by Frieza and Omega Shenron.
