— Krillin

Krillin made a cameo appearance in Goku vs Superman. He was portrayed by Nice Peter.

Information on the cameo

Krillin is a supporting protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga, and the animes Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball ZDragon Ball GT, and Dragon Ball Super.

Krillin had a brief rivalry with Goku when they first met and trained under Master Roshi, but they quickly became lifelong best friends. One of the most powerful and talented human martial artists on Earth, Krillin is courageous, a faithful ally, and good-natured. He is a prominent Z Fighter, despite usually being overpowered by the major enemies. His short stature and baldness (with the exception of when he grows out his hair in the Majin Buu Saga onwards) aid him in his ability to provide comic relief during tense moments.

During the latter half of Dragon Ball Z, Krillin largely retires from fighting, opting to settle down with his family instead, becoming the husband of Android 18 and the father of Marron.

Appearance in the rap battle

Krillin appeared at the World Martial Arts Tournament with Goku after the second line of his first verse, shouting "Goku!" and mirroring Jimmy Olsen shouting "Superman!" in Superman's first verse. He later appeared shouting "Oh!", "Toe!", and "Ho!" with Goku during the last two lines of the same verse.


  • Krillin's name is misspelled in the credits as "Krillen."
  • Before appearing during Goku's first verse, he is mentioned by Superman in the line, "I'm killin' it; you're Krillin it! I'm villainous to vegetables!"
  • Although Nice Peter is taller than EpicLLOYD and Ray William Johnson, Krillin is much shorter than both Goku and Superman.
  • Peter said they included Krillin and Jimmy Olsen as they thought it would be funny to have both rappers supported by their "useless sidekicks."
