Born in the city of Kyoto in Japan, Oimei has become a popular part of Japanese culture. He is portrayed as the benevolent protector of various neighborhoods in the Dragon form. This role is carried out by him in many stories. In the anime series Dragonball Z, he is called “Master of Dragon” and is responsible for many of the strong personalities in the series. The role of Oimei was previously held by the god of destruction, King Piccolo.
One of his most well-known Dragon forms is Ogon. His appearance is that of a dragon. His original appearance was that of an egg, however, as time progresses he has matured into his adult form. In this form, his body changes into that of an egg that opens to reveal a small, scaled red dragon inside. His tail also swells and becomes a spiked ball.
Oimei’s most powerful form is his Great God Dragon form. In this form, his entire body takes on a red and gold color. His skin becomes that of a dragon’s scales and his pupils become red. In the center of his chest is a golden pattern which represents his heart. His fingernails take on the appearance of flames and his nails grow to lengths of five times their normal length.
In his Japanese Dragonball Z films, Dragonball GT, and the Dragonball Z video game, Oimei are played by Masane Amaha. Masane Amaha is actually half of the female character in the series, Yamcha. Her father is dead, her mother desires to be a better person, and she has been told that being a Dragon will make her happier. She lives alone with her cat Tights.
Oimei transforms into a warrior at birth. He is trained by Kakuzu the Warrior of Peace and trained by master warrior Piccolo. Together they seek out and destroy those who do not have the right to live in the world they created. They are also sought after by those who wish to rule the world. Their ultimate nemesis is Goku. In the Japanese version, Piccolo states that once he transforms into a warrior he will lose his sense of purpose and forget his goal of protecting the universe.
In the Funimation English dub, Piccolo states that during the battle with Goku, he will drop his sword and leave. He will then go search for a new master. In the Spanish version of the series, Piccolo says that he will give up his life if Goku will not regain his lost sword. He will sacrifice himself to kill Goku. In the Chinese dub, Piccolo states that he will give up his life if Goku is not returned.
In an early episode of Dragonball Z, Goku transforms into a powerful dragon form. Oimei, the son of King Kado, a powerful warlord, tries to stop Goku from reverting to his dragon form. When Piccolo senses Goku’s aura, he realizes that Goku is using the legendary Dragonball to transform into a dragon, but is saved by the Shenzu Dragonball who then teleports Goku back to earth. Shenzu is his last hope against what is time. He then absorbs Piccolo into his own body, making Piccolo return to being a warrior again.
