"How can I fix what just isn't broken?!"
Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan

Krang (タコ科学者 Tako Kagaku-sha, lit. "Octopus Scientist") is a purple alien scientist who works for Paragus in Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan


Although he usually wears a black cloak, his true form resembles a combination of an octopus and a brain, with several tentacles and a mustache.

Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan[]


Krang collects data

When Broly enters a rage when he sees Goku, Paragus has trouble controlling him, so he takes his control device to Krang and asks him to fix it, although Krang claims that the device is not broken and Broly must be acting out on his own. Paragus also infers that Krang had been responsible for the device's creation when recounting Broly's past. Unlike the Dragon Team and the slaves, Krang and Paragus' soldiers were not taken to Piccolo's ship when Comet Camori crashed into New Planet Vegeta, so he was presumably killed when New Vegeta was destroyed or he may have been among the henchmen Broly killed during his rampage.


  • Broly's Ring - A mind control device Paragus commissioned the scientist to develop to keep Broly under control. The device was ultimately successful and gave Paragus a means with which to use Broly's power to establish a New Saiyan Empire with Paragus setting his sights on conquering Earth by using Comet Camori collision with New Planet Vegeta to wipe out Vegeta and the Dragon Team. Unfortunately Goku's presence caused Broly's personality to resurface due to his pathological and deep seated hatred of Kakarot as a result of past trauma, which ultimately allowed Broly to break free.
    • Paragus' Gauntlet - A device which acts as the controller for Broly's Ring allowing Paragus to control Broly and force him to submit. However as Broly's personality resurfaced, Paragus had a harder time of controlling Broly as he mentally began to resist his father's control.

Voice Actors[]


  • He resembles Krang, a villain from the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, in both in his appearance and name. Due to the popularity of the series in Japan, it is likely this is a purposeful reference, though the name "Krang" was only given in the Funimation dub of the movie, and he is unnamed in the Japanese version. Presumably his English name is a homage to Krang due their similar appearance.
  • He was only named in the credits.
