Misokatsun (ミソカッツン Misokattsun) is one of the three Brutal Warriors created by Dr. Kochin who serve Dr. Wheelo in Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest.


Easily the most unusual looking of the three, Misokatsun is an enormous yellow ball of putty with a mechanical interior, and while he looks sluggish, he is actually quite fast and sports large claws.


Misokatsun appears to not have sentience of his own, only doing what his creator orders him to do. If anything, he seems to be ruthless when fighting, determined to succeed in his programming.

Misokatsun attacks Roshi

Alongside Ebifurya and Kishime, he is unleashed to fight Master Roshi and deflects a Kamehameha off of his stomach back at Roshi. Later, when Goku arrives at Wheelo's fortress, Misokatsun emerges from under the ice under Goku's feet outside of Dr. Wheelo's fortress. Goku tries to punch him in the belly, but his hand only sinks in. Afterward, Misokatsun chases Goku into the first level of the fortress and fights him there. Misokatsun is then killed, when Goku plows straight through him with a Kaio-ken, stretching his body beyond its limits and literally bursting him like a balloon.

Misokatsun was shown to have the strength to hurt Goku and his elasticity allowed him to withstand attacks that otherwise would have killed him. He was immediately beaten once Goku used the Kaio-ken.

  • Misokatsun's name is derived from a variety of katsu (deep-fried breaded pork) famous to Nagoya, Japan; the katsu is either dipped in a miso-based sauce or the sauce is poured over it before serving.
  • Misokatsun is similar to Buyon from the original Dragon Ball. Both enemies have fat, rubbery bodies that absorb the force of punches and kicks, and can deflect ki attacks like the Kamehameha.
  • Misokatsun also shares a strong resemblance with King Gurumes in his mutated form, as well as Drum, Dodoria, and Wings.
