Just before King Piccolo began his new rampage, King Furry was waiting for a celebration for himself where several people from all over Dragon World would give him gifts for his great services. Unfortunately, he is confronted by King Piccolo and Piano, who take over Furry's kingship when Piccolo displays his power.

After King Piccolo's defeat, Furry attempts to award Goku a Blue Star Medal for his heroic battle, but Goku leaves for The Lookout before he can do so.

In his fourth appearance, he is shown being asked if the military forces of Earth should attack Cell. He decides against it, knowing that Goku is the only one strong enough to defeat Cell. In his final appearance, after Jimmy Firecracker announces that Mr. Satan has defeated Cell, he voices his doubts and that it must have really been someone like Goku who must have come along to save everyone.
