Toriyama is a recurring character and running gag in the series.


Toriyama has an inconsistent colour scheme between his two appearances. In Revenge of Cooler, the feathers on his back, tail, head and wings were brown. He has a white belly with white streaks on his wings. In his second appearance in season 3 of DBZA, Toriyama is much more colourful. His wings and tail are cyan, his belly and the top of his head is yellow, and he has two rings around his neck and face which are grey and blue respectively.

Revenge of Cooler[]

Toriyama first appeared during the fight with Cooler. He had come to aid Goku, but was too late, as he fell, and died. Goku, taking the attack as a personal offense, revived Toriyama, to start a new life. He was left with one task with his new life which was to teach a dinosaur to ride a ball. This is likely a reference to the opening theme "Cha La Head Cha La".

This causes 2 things to happen: In the process of bringing Toriyama back to life, Goku becomes Super Saiyan. This then causes Cooler to be in awe and shock, astonished by Goku's Super Saiyan form. Toriyama then flies off, to fulfill his destiny.

Death of Toriyama

Season 3[]

Toriyama makes an appearance greeting Android 16. He states he has a dinosaur and he did keep his promise to Goku; he indeed taught it to ride a ball.


  • The name of the bird is a reference to the creator of the Dragon Ball series, Akira Toriyama.
