Marron (マーロン Māron) is the daughter of Krillin and Android 18.


As a baby and little girl, she resembles her father: she has his eye shape and lack of nose. In Dragon Ball Super, Marron's appearance remains largely the same but her hairstyle was changed from pigtails to a mushroom-style haircut. She also wears earrings. Despite being seven in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Marron has not grown. Likely due to her father's genetics, Marron's growth was delayed.


Marron in Dragon Ball GT

In GT, Marron now resembles her mother at age 19; her eyes now noticeably blue and a fair skin complexion. Marron is between her parents in height; she's taller than Krillin, but just a bit shorter than 18. Her hair goes down to her shoulders and is kept in two pigtails once again with three loose short strands are hanging on her forehead. She's now wearing the long-sleeved polo undershirt, pink dress and hat, white socks and brown shoes. Additionally, her nose has grown to the point it is visible, while as a child she appeared to be noseless like her father.

Marron cheers on her mom at the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament and proves to be one of the few people who can make Android 18 smile. Their heartwarming relationship lasts through Dragon Ball GT when Marron is older. Marron has a good friendship with the other children of the Z Fighters; looking up to Trunks and Goten as older brothers and spending time with Bulla and Pan. Marron may seem shallow to some, as she usually finds herself longing after the finer things in life like brand new designer clothes, similar to how her mother is. However, when a surprise attack finds her mother and father fighting for their lives, Marron realizes that nothing is as important as family. Due to their similar personalities and love of shopping, Marron gets along well with Bulla.

In Dragon Ball Super, she serves as motivation for her parents, especially her father when he decides to come out of retirement. She also seems to have an admiration for her parents' extraordinary abilities, even being hinted by 18 as possessing something similar.

Due to having powerful parents and being around the Dragon Team, she is used to their extraordinary abilities. During the Universe Survival Saga, she joins Goten and Trunks to support them in protecting Monster Island for her uncle.



Marron is the daughter of Krillin and Android 18; she is not identified by name until the very final manga installments, when a lot of time has passed, and she has gotten much older. However, in the anime, she is referred by name numerous times throughout the Buu saga. She was born three years before the Majin Buu Saga and four years after the events of the Cell Games in Dragon Ball Z. Unlike most the other Z Fighters' children, Marron was never trained by her mother or father, which means that she has never shown any special abilities or martial arts skills of her own.

Marron on Kami's Lookout

Marron goes with the group to look for the Dragon Balls. Later they must escape to The Lookout when they learn of a new villain named Majin Buu who a day later eventually finds everyone at the tower in his Super Buu form, and for a short time allows them to live until he is tricked into the Hyperbolic Time Chamber while he fought Gotenks. Piccolo destroyed the door but Super Buu found a way out and turned everyone including Marron into candy and ate them. Dende was the only one to escape, but only because of Mr. Popo, who launched him out of the lookout as a last-minute act to keep Dende alive so the Dragon Balls could be used to revive the people Majin Buu killed.

Later during the battle, Marron, along with the rest of Earth is wished back to life. Each individual helped, thinking that they were giving their energy to their hero Mr. Satan, this allowed Goku to collect enough energy for his Super Spirit Bomb, which ultimately killed Kid Buu.

After 18 refuses to enter the Tournament of Power because of having to care for Marron, Goku suggests she stay with Bulma, and impresses Marron with the many facilities at Capsule Corporation. She observes Krillin's sparring match with Gohan, cheering him on, which distracts Gohan enough for Krillin to begin attacking him. When her mother expresses her concerns about Krillin sparring with Goku, Marron asks if he is okay and if he will lose. 18 quickly reassures her, saying that her father will never lose. Three hours before the Tournament of Power begins, Marron arrives at Capsule Corp with her parents and asks Trunks to let her see his newborn sister, Bulla.

Marron later accompanies her mother and father along with Goten and Trunks to the island preserve where her uncle Android 17 works to pick 17 up for the tournament and to take the boys to the island to protect it while he was away at the tournament as Goku had promised 17 they would convince him to enter the Tournament of Power. However, her mother and uncle greet each other coldly, while Krillin attempts friendly conversation, but 18 tells him not to. 17 however kindly greets Marron but mispronounces her name as "Maron" causing 18 to threaten her brother. Surprisingly Marron asks to stay on the island with Goten and Trunks, though Krillin is reluctant to leave Marron on the island as she is not strong like Goten and Trunks, 18 points out to Krillin that Marron is tougher than he thinks. As her parents and uncle leave for the tournament, the two androids leave, a pair of poachers watch from inside a submarine and think it's safe but one of the poachers sense that the kids are not ordinary kids.

Marron being protected by No. 18

Two years after Kid Buu's defeat, Marron attends Mr. Satan's banquet with her mother and father at his newly made hotel in celebration of defeating Buu. The celebration is then crashed by a brother duo, Abo and Kado, whom are after Vegeta's brother Tarble. The brothers are challenged by Goten and Trunks but they fail in defeating them. The brothers, merged as Aka, unleash a technique that destroyed the hotel. While with Android 18, a sphere from the hotel is approaching them but Krillin fires a Destructo Disc at the sphere. Aka is then defeated by Goku with a Kamehameha. After this encounter, they continue their feast.


Manga & Anime

Unlike her mother and father, Marron is not a fighter or martial artist and is apparently a normal human girl. However, in Dragon Ball Super, 18 reassures Krillin that Marron is tougher than she looks, indicating she is strong enough to stay on the island and survive there with Goten and Trunks. Additionally, one of the poachers senses that she, like Goten and Trunks, is not as a normal child as she appears.

Video Games

In Dokkan Battle, she appears on a team with Goten and Trunks though like the manga/anime she does not fight and simply acts as moral support for Goten and Trunks.


  • Ranger's Little Helpers w/Marron - A variation of Ranger's Little Helpers Super Attack where she cheers and waves to Trunks and Goten as they power up, then fly off to double team the opponent with Trunks punching from the front while Goten punches the opponent from behind, then fire a Kamehameha and Double Buster Combined Energy Wave which merge together in a single energy wave that hits the opponent generating a huge explosion, while Marron joins Trunks and Goten in posing victoriously. The attack has a 30% chance of occurring instead of Ranger's Little Helpers.



During the events of Dragon Ball GT in the Baby Saga, Marron (along with almost everyone else on Earth) is taken over by a tuffle parasite from the evil machine mutant, Baby. While infected she retains most of her original personality, though she is still an evil follower of Baby like the other infected Earthlings.

Video Game Appearances[]

Dragon Ball Z - Buu's Fury 1403158682240

Marron in Buu's Fury

Marron is seen in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury and Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors. She is also mentioned in Krillin's and Android 18's bios in many games, such as the Budokai Tenkaichi series.

In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, Marron appears as a Support Item. Additionally, she appears with Trunks and Goten as a team based upon their acting as Monster Island Rangers, though only Goten and Trunks actually fight in battle. She also has a 30% chance of appearing as part of an alternate version of the Super Attack Ranger's Little Helpers where she will wave to Trunks and Goten before they attack and will pose with them as their opponent explodes after being hit by Trunks and Goten's finishing attack.

She appears in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a non-playable character.

Voice Actors[]


  • In Future Trunks' timeline, Marron was never born because her father's counterpart, Future Krillin, was killed by the Androids, and her mother's counterpart, Future Android 18, did not have a change of heart due to being programmed to hate humanity, programming which the main timeline Android 18 lacks entirely.
  • Like Krillin, she is named after chestnuts; Marron is a French word for chestnuts.
  • Her name is very similar and is pronounced the same as Maron, Krillin's first girlfriend who appears in Dragon Ball Z filler.
    • Even though the two names sound the same in English, they are pronounced differently in Japanese.
    • This is referenced in Dragon Ball Super, where Android 17 mistakenly pronounces Marron as Maron, which makes Android 18 upset.
  • As a child, Marron strongly resembles her father and even appears to be noseless like him. However, as she gets older, she takes more after her mother.
    • The fact that her nose is not noticeable as a child (it becomes more pronounced as she gets older) may indicate that her father does indeed have a nose but it is just not visible leading people to assume he doesn't have one (which was lampshaded in Krillin's fight with Bacterian for comic effect).
  • In Dragon Ball FighterZ during a special event with Gohan and the Ginyu Force, Krillin briefly worries Marron might pick up the same interest in posing as the Ginyu Force and Great Saiyaman after surmising Gohan's interest in posing was due to his encounter with the Ginyu Force on Namek as a boy fearing it could be a negative influence on his daughter (indicating Krillin wishes to keep his daughter from picking up the sad habit and making a fool of herself).
