Snake Princess

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

(Redirected from Princess Snake)

"Oh, my dear, perhaps it's true that I wasn't able to deceive your heart, but your eyes, what about your eyes? Have they been deceived all along? You poor, blind fool. You can't even see what's in front of you anymore, can you?"
Snake Princess in "Princess Snake"

Snake Princess (へび ひめ, Hebi Hime; FUNimation "Princess Snake") is a giant Serpent temptress who lures people into her castle located at the halfway point of the Serpentine Road.


Snake Princess obtained her title 739 Before Age. The only person who ever tried to capture her was Great King Yama about 500 years prior to the events of Dragon Ball Z. She also implied that she and Yama had since been wed. She won the Next World Beauty Contest at some point.

Dragon Ball Z

Snake Princess tried to steal Son Goku's heart when he came along, but his sense of loyalty to his family and friends was, of course, much too strong, therefore she transformed into her true form, a giant fire-breathing Serpent, and tried to eat him. Goku, however, tricked her into tying herself into a knot.

It is unknown whether Chaozu, Piccolo Junior, Tenshinhan, and Yamucha were also captured by her on their way to meet North Kaio or if they simply ignored her castle and moved on. It is implied in Dragon Ball Z: Harukanaru Densetsu that Yamucha stayed briefly with her and that she and Raditz and had some form of relationship. It is very likely that the Serpentine Road has more of a connection to her rather than to North Kaio. She was not seen after her defeat by Goku, though her servants were.
