Dr. Briefs (ブリーフ博士, Burīfu-hakase) is an eccentric engineer and founder of the Capsule Corporation. He is the creator of the Dynocaps, which allow any object to be shrunken into a small capsule. Along with his daughter, Bulma, and his wife, Mrs. Briefs, they live in a large building full of a variety of animals that they keep as pets. They refuse to leave their animals even in the face of death. His favorite pet is Scratch, known as Tama in the Japanese versions of anime filler, a small black cat that sits on his shoulder. Dr. Briefs aids Goku, Bulma, and their companions several times throughout the series by building a spaceship allowing Goku to reach Namek, restoring Android #16 with Bulma, and creating a gravity room for Vegeta. He is voiced by Jōji Yanami in Japan, Mark Hildreth in the Ocean Group dub, and Chris Forbis in the Funimation dub.
