Bulma (ブルマ, Buruma) is an human-type Earthling, and the second-born daughter of the world's most richest man, Dr. Brief and his wife, Panchy, the daughter-in-law of King Vegeta, and the sister-in-law of Vegeta's younger brother Tarble. She is also the younger sister of Tights. She would later marry the former Saiyan prince, Vegeta, and would give birth to both of their two children: A son, Trunks, and their daughter, Bura. Additionally she one of the many principle owners of Capsule Corporation that creates a majority of the planet's technology. She also is a scientist and the inventor of the Dragon Radar.


Creation and Conception[]


Toriyama's postcard of Gokū and Bulma: "I've finally finished the first chapter's worth of sketches. The title is "Dragon Ball", and it looks like it'll be a strange yet fun adventure manga. Look forward to it."

Bulma, alongside Son Gokū, was revealed in 1984 via postcard to Toriyama's official fanclub at the time — the Toriyama Preservation Society — a month before Dragon Ball first premiered in Shōnen Jump.[14]


  • Despite being 40 during the Majin Boo Arc, Bulma stated her age to be "38" in Dragon Ball Z: God and God. This would render her six years younger than her actual age of 44,[Note 1] and two years younger than Gokū. It is more than likely that Bulma — being a vain woman — was lying about her age.
  • Bulma's last name is never actually confirmed. In the Japanese and FUNimation dub, she is only ever referred to as "Bulma". The dub, however, implies her surname is "Brief", as Panchy, Bulma's mother, is referred to as "Mrs. Brief". In the Japanese, however, Panchy is simply referred to as Bulma's Mother (ブルマのママ, Buruma no mama),[12] and thus whether or not she has a surname remains to be seen.
  • Bulma's hair color has never remained quite consistent. In the early chapters of Dragon Ball, it was teal. It later switched to purple and remained this color ever since; this would later be reflected in her son, Trunks. The anime, however, has used various shades of blue since the beginning of early Dragon Ball, and the Dragon Ball Super manga changed Bulma's hair to blue once more.
  • In early Dragon Ball, Bulma was frequently exploited for the sake of fan service; bathing scenes, shower scenes, and panty shots frequently featured Bulma. Additionally, Bulma is the only known example in the series of completely exposed breasts. As the series became more serious, these moments faded out, fading completely after Saiyan Arc.
  • According to the databook(s):
    • Bulma's hobby is inventing.
    • Bulma's favorite food is strawberries.
    • Bulma's favorite vehicle is any kind of vehicle.
