Directory: Characters → Villains → DBZ villains Princess Snake is a giant snake temptress who lures people into her castle on Serpent Road. She also goes by the name Jadōshin. She became the Snake Princess in 739 B.C. and the only person who she ever tried to capture her was King Yemma, about 500 years prior to the events of Dragon Ball Z. She has also implied that she and Yemma have since been wed.
When Goku comes along, she tries to steal his heart, but his sense of loyalty to his family and friends is of course far too strong, so, she just turns into a giant fire-breathing snake and tries to eat him. Goku, however, tricks her into getting herself into a knot (literally) while evading her in Serpent form.
It is unknown whether Piccolo, Tien, Chiaotzu and Yamcha were also captured by her on their way to meet King Kai, or they simply ignored her castle and moved on, though in Dragon Ball Z: Harukanaru Densetsu it is implied that Yamcha stayed briefly and that Raditz had some form of relationship with her. It could be possible that the Serpent Road has more relation to her, rather than to King Kai.
She does not appear in the manga by Akira Toriyama.
