Captain Yellow is an anthropomorphic tiger officer of the Red Ribbon Army, working under General Copper and in charge of sky operations. Assigned to look for a Dragon Ball in the Land of Karin, he tried to force Bora to tell them where the Dragon Ball was. Seeing that their guns were ineffective against Bora, he took Upa, Bora's son, hostage. Son Goku, arriving at the scene in this instant, attacked Yellow's airplane, sending him flying to his death, rescuing Upa, and Yellow's airplane exploded.
He escapes from Hell in DBGT, but goes back there.
