One of the main protagonists throughout the Dragon Ball series, Krillin is a vertically challenged monk with some serious power. He meets Goku and Bulma in the first series (Dragon Ball) at Kame Island. Krillin and Goku both go looking for Master Roshi, the world’s greatest martial arts instructor. With Roshi as their instructor, the Krillin and Goku train, become stronger and eventually become great friends.

Krillin, as mentioned about, is a vertically challenged monk with some serious moves. He has the typical monk markings; Six dots which are centered on his forehead. He almost always wears an orange fighting Gi. His head is shaved bald in his younger years. As Krillin gets older (towards the end of Dragon Ball Z) he lets his hair grow out and even grows a mustache in DBGT.

After the android saga, Krillin and Android 18 end up getting married and eventually have a child named Marron. How Krillin has a child with an Android is still a mystery.

Although Krillin never plays a huge role in saving planet earth from the destruction of the Dragon Ball villains, he is a member of the Z Fighters. He is a family friend to Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Tien, Yamcha, Piccolo and the others. He trains with Goku as a kid and develops some powerful skills, skills which do aid the Z fighters in their many battles. One of Krillin’s most powerful attacks in the “Desctro Disk,” an attack which can cut almost anything in half.

One of Krillin’s most notable features is lack of having a nose. For whatever reason, Krillin is drawn without a nose and this appearance is passed down to his daughter Marron, who is shown as a small girl having the same shaped eyes and no nose; like her father Krillin.
