Giru (ギル, Giru), originally known as T2006, is a Machine Mutant that accompanies Goku, Pan and Trunks on their quest to find the Black Star Dragon Balls. The three first met him on a desert planet, while he was on the brink of death. After eating the Dragon Radar for energy, he tried to escape from them, but was ultimately caught by Goku. After that, they found out that the radar integrated into his software. Upon arriving on the Planet M2, he betrays them but is actually pretending as ordered by Trunks.
Giru was initially programmed to find and lure the Saiyans to the planet in order to use their DNA but due to a memory failure, he forgot the entire thing until the team nears Planet M2. He tells Trunks the truth of his mission and together, they decide to make the 'inhabitants' of the planet believe that Giru is acting according to their programming, by giving them data to capture Goku, Pan and Trunks.
After he sets the trio free, they find Dr. Myu's evil creation 'Baby' and seemingly destroy him. Then Trunks and Goku finish off General Rilldo, an unstoppable mutant who can control metal, and leave the planet for good.
During the Shadow Dragons saga, Giru went with Goku and Pan to search for the seven Shadow Dragons. Giru was fatally damaged by Eis Shenron, though he was ressurected when Goku made his last wish upon Shenron.
He also makes a brief cameo as one of Pan's special attacks in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2.
For defense, Giru has a small rocket launcher in his chest cavity, he also has the unique ability to reverse General Rilldo's metal breath beam victims via a green beam. After eating the Dragon Radar, the radar itself appears on his back.
