Bandages the Mummy is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise. He makes his debut in "We are the Five Warriors", the 70th episode of the Dragon Ball anime, which premiered on July 15, 1987.
Bandages the Mummy is the third fighter employed by Fortuneteller Baba during the Fortuneteller Baba Saga. He is severely underestimated by Yamcha during their match, where Yamcha is under the impression that Bandages is a slow fighter based on his large stature. However, Bandages surprises him when he demonstrates is capable of balancing both incredibly fast movements and brute strength. Initially, Yamcha has trouble finding the opportunity to strike the mummy because of his difficult fighting style, but he is eventually able to knocks Bandages off of the platform, sending him to his apparent death in the acid below. Once again however, Bandages surprises his unsuspecting foe by launching one of his bandages onto the platform and swinging back aboard. Bandages then proceeds to pummel Yamcha into surrendering.
Bandages the Mummy seems to meet his match while facing his next opponent, Goku, however, as like Yamcha, Bandages has trouble finding openings in Goku's defense. Cautiously, he decides to catch Goku off guard, and manages to land two hard blows on the boy, which appear to knock him out. However, Goku simply gets back on his feet and calmly approaches the mummy. Ever angry, Bandages unsuccessfully tries punching Goku, to which Goku retaliates with a punch to Bandage's stomach. Though this punch is the first instance of pain Bandages experiences during the match, it proves enough to knock him out.
After his defeat to Goku, Bandages the Mummy does not appear in the series until the Kid Buu Saga of Dragon Ball Z, where, with Spike the Devil Man, he supplies Goku with energy for Goku's Universal Spirit Bomb.
