Bear Thief

From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia

Bear Thief (山賊, Sanzoku; FUNimation "Bear Thief"; Literally meaning "Bandit") is an anthropomorphic Bear.


Dragon Ball

Bear Thief lived somewhere around Mount Paozu. He wielded a large scimitar and attacked passerbyers for food and valuables. He encountered Son Goku and Bulma Brief as they escorted Kame back to the ocean. Bear Thief intended to have Goku give up Kame to eat him, but Goku refused. This led to a confrontation between the two. Having not been able to even touch Goku, Bear Thief was defeated with only one punch to his face.
