"That...stupid..pig...IT WAS THE PAIR OF UNDERWEAR!!"
— A humiliated Oceanus Shenron reveals the nature of her birth in "The Six-Star Dragon"

Panties (パンティー Pantī), known in the United Kingdom and Australia as Knickers, are an undergarment that women from Earth wear. They play a significant role in Dragon Ball's early comic relief and fan service, which is mostly exploitation of Bulma.


Dragon Ball[]


Bulma using her panties in an attempt to seduce Goku

Goku tries to look to see if Bulma has a tail and moves her skirt up revealing her panties. Later on, at Goku's house she tries to seduce him into giving her his Dragon Ball by showing him her panties and offering for him to touch them.[2]

Bulma is sleeping and Goku wakes up in the morning. He then lays on Bulma's lap and realizes she has no bulge. He takes her panties off to find out that girls have nothing there.[3]

Bulma eyes all blue

Bulma still has no panties on from the previous episode. Master Roshi asks Bulma to show him her panties for his Dragon Ball. Bulma tries to panty flash him but inadvertently shows her naked bottom half without knowing that she had no panties on. When she goes back to the capsule house, she finds that they are off and that Goku removed them while she was sleeping leaving her both mortified and angry at Goku to the point she comically shoots at him with a machine gun upon learning Goku was responsible for their removal.[4]

Oolong tries to escape Bulma and she puts her panties on a fishing rod to bring him back up. Later on, Oolong turns himself into a pair of panties and offers Bulma to wear him due to hers being wet from fishing him out, but she gets really mad and smacks him. Later Puar reveals that Oolong was expelled from Southern Transformation Kindergarten for stealing their teacher's panties.[5]

A pair of panties are seen flying out of Bulma's briefcase when Pilaf is searching through it.[6] Oolong interrupts Emperor Pilaf's wish for world domination and wishes Shenron for a girl's panties.[7] He is seen wearing them on his head all the way through the episode "Goku's Rival". Later, it is revealed that this wish gives birth to Oceanus Shenron, who takes it as a great shame.

Launch is in her panties sleeping in the same bed with Goku and in the morning she wakes up in her bad form and attacks Goku. Goku knocks her out while she is still in her panties but then stops Master Roshi from getting a feel off of her by saying that it's time to train.[8]

Oolong looks up Bulma's skirt while holding her up to watch the preliminary rounds. She ends up falling with Puar on grabbing onto her face tight and Bulma ends up on the ground moving her legs back and forth with her panties clearly shown and a bunch of random guys are staring along with Oolong who pretends to defend her.[9]

Bulma's panties as she puts the Dragon Balls down

Bulma is at Kame House getting ready to take a bath, she goes opens up a drawer filled with tons of neatly organized panties folded into little squares, trying to decide what she feels like wearing today. There are white, blue, pink, purple and yellow panties with bunnies, hearts, flowers, stripes, plaid, strawberries and polka-dots on them. She is seen pulling out a pair that is white with a pink teddy bear's face on it, she smiles and looks at her panties for a second. When she finds out the Dragon Balls are active again, her white panties are seen up her skirt as she sets all the balls down outside.[27]

A pair of panties with hearts on them fly into Master Roshi from wind caused by the fight.[28] Launch's panties are visible as her dress is constantly flapping up from the wind caused by Piccolo's Explosive Demon Wave.[29]

Ena's panties while running

Ena panties are seen briefly while carrying a bag of oranges and running with Gohan and Jinku. Two bystanding women are watching the chase between the orphans on bikes and the police officer on the hover-scooter. When the officer rides by them, the force of the wind made by his vehicle rips the skirt off of one of the women, revealing her panties before she runs off-screen.[30]

Oceanus isn't the only person disturbed by the wishes' nature as Pan's face also flushes red upon hearing about. Goku however upon being reminded of Oolong's wish, laughs at the nature of the wish, causing Pan to question what her grandfather and his friends' reasons for making such a wish in the first place (unaware it was made to prevent Emperor Pilaf from ruling the world).[37]

The scene itself was a homage to the infamous scene where Bulma flashed Master Roshi, though Akira Toriyama himself felt the scene with Kaede was underwhelming due to her still wearing her panties, the absence of which was a key aspect of the scene it was homaging.

Adventure Special[]


Bulma wearing Panties on her head in the Dragon Ball: Adventure Special magazine

They are trophy No. 43 in Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure. They also appear in Dragon Ball 3: Gokuden, Dragon Ball Z: Super Gokuden: Totsugeki-Hen and Dragon Ball: Origins.

In Dragon Ball Fusions, they are mentioned in Sub-Event: "The Panty Thief Appears!". During the sub-event, Peco a female Earthling Martial Artist, asks Tekka's team help her find the person who had stolen her panties when she had taken her eyes off her things for just a minute. Pan is outraged by the theft and insists that they help Peco find the thief. Though she did not get a good look at the thief, she remembers they had a piggish appearance, causing Kid Goku and Kid Trunks to immediately suspect Oolong. Their suspicions turn out to be right, as Oolong admits to the theft after he is found by Tekka's team. Tekka can then chose to turn Oolong into Peco or let him go. If they let him go, Peco will be angry and attacks Tekka's team alongside her two teammates, resulting in a battle. If Tekka chooses to turn Oolong over to her, she will forgive Oolong when he apologizes but threatens, she will roast him on a spit if he steals her panties again. It is implied, but never stated that Oolong returned her panties.


Many parts of the Vizbig editions of the Dragon Ball manga change the word "Panties" to "Undies".


Original (Left) and Edit (Right)

In the Ocean dub and the Toonami broadcast of Dragon Ball, most situations that involved panties were taken out but only a few parts were kept in. In "The Secret of the Dragon Balls" when Goku moved Bulma's skirt up her panties were oddly changed from white with pink polka dots to plain pink to match the color of her skirt.


Original (Left) and Edit (Right)

The scene in "Yamcha the Desert Bandit" where Bulma used a pair of her panties to fish Oolong out of the water was changed to money. Oolong's wish was kept but the wording was changed to "The world's most comfortable pair of ultra-soft underwear" (in the German dub, it is changed to Oolong wanting a hat with holes for his ears). Ranfan's fight in the Toonami broadcast was shortened by completely cutting out the scene where she strips and is in her panties. Instead after showing one of Nam's failed hits, it cut to a scene of her foot twitching to imply that he won. The scene was strangely not taken in the recaps in later episodes.


Bulma's panties edited into sweat pants

In the CW4Kids Toonzai airing of Dragon Ball Z Kai, the gray panties Bulma is seen wearing in "A Powerful New Foe! Frieza, Ruler of the Universe!" were edited into looking like gray sweatpants.


  • Bulma's panties in the first episode of Dragon Ball are colored white with pink polka dots but in the original manga they are just white.
  • The color of Bulma's Panties changes three times during the General Blue Saga which takes place all in one day, giving her no chance to change her panties, let alone her clothes. Her panties are plain white in the episode "Kame House - Found!" Her panties are shown again in "The Trap is Sprung" where they are purple but with strawberries on them and the final time is in "The Pirate Treasure" when she strips down to them to swim where they are completely red.
    • Although Bulma's strawberry panties are seen only in anime filler, it should be noted that the white-to-red inconsistency is also present in the manga.
  • In an interview with Akira Toriyama, he revealed that Mrs. Briefs' first name is "Panchy" which is a pun on "panties" matching the scheme of Bulma's family members being named after undergarments.
