Trivia[]

  • It is possible that one of King Furry's ancestors used the Dragon Balls to wish for royalty, as it was stated a few times in Dragon Ball that the first person to use the Dragon Balls wished to become the king; this may also explain why Earth is ruled by a single person.
  • In the 172nd episode of Dragon Ball Z, King Furry recites a quote by U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt: "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
