General White

From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki

"I really love kids. They break so easily."
General White in "The Fall of Muscle Tower"

General White (ホワイト 将軍, Howaito Shōgun; FUNimation "General White", Viz "General White") is a member of the Red Ribbon Army.


White was the often over-reactive Russian commander of Muscle Tower, the Red Ribbon Army's northern fortress.

Dragon Ball


White was the oldest of the known officers. While not a gifted strategist, he was observant and drew conclusions with surprising speed. He was the only officer to have ever found out Son Goku's primary weakness, his tail. He also seemed to be a somewhat skilled fighter as shown when he fought against Goku. Trapped at the top of the six-level tower through status, White spent his time either smoking a pipe, taking sips from his flask, yelling, or bursting out in laughter at Goku's attempt to climb the tower.

While he is easily irritated and slightly impatient, White is surprisingly complementary, congratulating Goku when he reached the sixth floor and praising Ninja Murasaki for a job well done when he supposedly killed Goku. As Goku and Artificial Human No. 8 reach the sixth and final level of the tower, which is his level, he sends Goku and Android 8 down to the fifth floor to be eaten by Buyon. After defeating the monster, Goku and General White fight. Although White is exceptionally built and muscular, it becomes clear that Goku is much stronger due to his training. White then grabs Goku's tail and tosses him around, hurting the young fighter. However, Goku manages to get back up and defeat him. He pretends to cooperate and says he will free the village chief, but secretly swipes a handgun and holds the old man at gunpoint. General White then threatens to kill the chief if Android 8 doesn't comply to eliminate Goku. White proceeds to shoot Goku in the back of the head with his handgun. In retaliation, Android 8 becomes enraged and punches General White straight through the wall and out of Muscle Tower, sending him into the distant horizon, and is believed to have killed him as a result.


White redesigned for Path to Power.

White appeared in Dragon Ball: The Path to Power remodeled as an Italian man. When Goku got to White, White unleashed No. 8 to defeat Goku. No. 8 rebeled, however, and defeated White. White was last seen tied up with the rest of his men in Muscle Tower.

  • In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, there is a Bob-omb character by the name of General White who lives in a winter-like area and is implied to be of Russian descent. The General White in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, however, is not villainous and in fact helps Mario, albeit after he gets a signed permission slipn from Goldbub and a wild goose chase.
