Future De Brief (ブリーフ博士, Burīfu Hakase) is an elderly, brilliant and eccentric scientist known for being the founder of Capsule Corporation. He is the husband of Panchy, the father of Tights and Future Bulma, and grandfather of Future Trunks. Just like in the original series, Dr. Briefs is portrayed of being an intelligent scientist, but is shown to be incredibly sexist, racist, and homophobic. Kaiserneko refers to Dr. Briefs as a "hyper-conservative" scientist. Bulma even refers to him as a billionaire playboy philanthropist near the end of Season 2. It's revealed in Season 3 that he wanted to put bombs inside(or, implicitly, just grope) his children and possibly grandchildren, but Mrs. Briefs was against it. It's also revealed that he kept clones of Mrs. Briefs inside his sub-lab, until Future Yajirobe unknowingly ate them all. He is voiced by Hbi2k.
"Wives are for kissing, not talking."
"Sweety, I do not see a sandwich with that beer."
"Damn it, there is no muffin button!"
"500x Earth's gravity? That's insane; you'd be crapping out your own spine!"
"Of course he had a sub-lab. We all have sub-labs. Where do you think I keep your mother's clones?"
"I don't have a fridge in my....oh, my God."
"I just wanted to see what the "gay agenda" looked like in person. Frankly, not impressed."
"Oh, great! And now immigrants! Truly a liberal wonderland around here!"
"Oh, so he can do that to strangers and it's fine, but I want to do it to my own children and your mother gets all uppity!"
"Don't go in the basement."
"Tell them to stay out of my scotch!"
"Most of those weren't meant to be eaten that way!"
Dr. Briefs was voiced by Hbi2k for the entirity of Dragon Ball Z Abridged. On January 18th 2019, it was revealed Hbi2k had left Team Four Star due to "inconsolable differences". Dr. Briefs has yet to be recast following this announcement, and the cancellation of Dragon Ball Z Abridged leaves any further appearances in any Team Four Star productions uncertain.
