Man-Wolf at the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament

During the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, Man-Wolf was a spectator. During Goku and Jackie Chun's battle, Goku transformed into a Great Ape. Jackie destroyed the moon returning Goku back to normal but caused Man-Wolf to be stuck in his wolf form. Since then, he's hated Jackie for this and is unable to be with pretty girls due to his form.

Dragon Ball

Tien Shinhan Saga

Main article: Tien Shinhan Saga During the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament, Man-Wolf battles Jackie Chun, who defeats him with ease, dodging all of Man-Wolf's attacks, then taking advantage of his wolf like personality by throwing a bone out of the area, which Man-Wolf grabs, losing the match. Jackie then permanently turns him into a human by hypnotizing him into thinking Krillin's bald head is the full moon.

King Piccolo Saga

Main article: King Piccolo Saga Shortly after the tournament, Man-Wolf is killed by Tambourine offscreen. His body was then seen floating down the river, with a spear through his corpse with the symbol of King Piccolo on it. He is later revived by Shenron just as his girlfriend was putting flowers over his grave along with everybody else killed by King Piccolo and his minions.

Man-Wolf (or a look-alike) later appears as a competitor at X.S. Cash's Intergalactic Tournament. He proved to be a very skilled fighter, capable of fighting against several other fighters at once, but was eliminated when he accidentally walked and fell out of the ring.

For unspecified reasons, Man-Wolf was shown to be back in his Wolf-form (possibly because the moon was restored by Kami at the end of Dragon Ball, but destroyed again by Piccolo during the Vegeta Saga of Dragon Ball Z). Though because Man-Wolf was turned into a human permanently, this could be somebody else.


  • Kenpo - Man-Wolf claims to be a black belt.

A character similar to him in his human form appears in Dragon Ball Online.

  • Man-Wolf is the second wolf-like beast shown in a World Tournament. Yamcha defeats a smaller wolf in the 21st tournament, who mocks the name of Yamcha's Wolf Fang Fist technique.
  • Man-Wolf is the opposite of a werewolf: instead of turning into a humanoid wolf at a full moon, he turns into a human at a full moon.
  • In the original Funimation version, Man-Wolf had a distortion effect in his voice. This was removed in the remastered edition.
