Gill in "Until We Meet Again..."

Gill (ギル, Giru; FUNimation "Giru") is a Machine Mutant.


Dragon ball GT

Gill accompanied Son Goku, Son Pan, and Trunks Brief on their quest to find the Black Star Dragon Balls. He was best friends with Pan, however, he was frequently the recipient of a lot of abuse (both verbal and physical) by her, which made him somewhat fearful of her.

Black Star Dragon Ball Saga

The three first met him on Planet Imecka and found him on the brink of death. After eating the Dragon Radar for energy, he tried to escape from them. He was ultimately caught by Goku. After that, they found out that the radar had integrated into his software. Upon arriving on Planet M2, he seem to have betrayed the three when he was actually pretending as ordered by Trunks.

Gill was initially programmed to find and lure the Saiyans to the planet in order to use their DNA. Due to a memory failure, he forgot the entire mission until the team neared Planet M2. He then told Trunks the truth of his mission, and together they decided to make the "inhabitants" of the planet believe that Giru was acting according to his programming by giving them data to capture Goku, Pan, and Trunks.

After he set the trio free, they found Dr. Mu's evil creation, Baby, and seemingly destroyed him. Trunks and Goku then finished off Rild, a seemingly unstoppable Machine Mutant who could control metal, and left the planet for good.

Baby Saga
