"Relax. It's not every day you get to wear the cloth of an Emperor. Thousands of years ago, I controlled the world. And now it seems that I control you."
Mummy in "The Devilmite Beam"

Mummy (ミイラ, Miira; FUNimation "Bandages the Mummy", Viz "Mummy Man") is the third fighter who Uranai Baba employes.

Mummy's Japanese name is a pun on the word Miira, or Mummy in English.

Mummy's coffin

Mummy appeared in "Goku's Turn to Fight" during the Fortuneteller Baba Saga. He fought in an arena called the Devil's Toilet somewhere inside Uranai Baba's Palace. Yamucha is the first to fight Mummy and severely underestimates him during their match, since he was under the impression that Mummy was a slow fighter based on his large stature. However, Mummy surprises him when he demonstrates he is capable of balancing both incredibly fast movements and brute strength. Initially, Yamucha has trouble finding the opportunity to strike the mummy because of his difficult fighting style, but he is eventually able to knock Mummy off the platform.

Once again however, Mummy surprises his unsuspecting foe by launching one of his bandages onto the platform and swinging back aboard. Mummy then proceeds to pummel Yamcha into submission. As Goku prepared to fight Mummy, Master Roshi revealed that several other fighters had defeated Baba's first two warriors, but nobody had ever beaten Mummy.

Mummy seems to meet his match while facing his next opponent, Son Goku. Mummy has trouble finding openings in Goku's defense. Cautiously, he decides to catch Goku off guard, and manages to land three hard blows on the boy, which appear to knock him out.

However, Goku simply gets back on his feet and calmly approaches Mummy. Mummy then resorts to capturing Goku with his bandages, and attempting to squeeze Goku until he gave up. At this point Master Roshi suggested that no mortal man could defeat Mummy. Goku, however, shockingly maneuvered his way free. Ever angry, Mummy unsuccessfully tries punching Goku, to which Goku retaliates with a punch to Mummy's stomach. Though this punch is the first instance of pain Mummy experiences during the match, it proves enough to knock him out.

After his defeat to Goku, Mummy does not appear in the series until the Kid Buu Saga of Dragon Ball Z where, with Devil Man, he supplies Goku with energy for Goku's Super Genki Dama.
