— "Bulma's Big Day"
Blueberry is a character in the Dragon Ball franchise. He makes his debut in "Destination: Guru", the fifty-ninth episode of Dragon Ball Z, which premiered on August 29, 1990. His name is derived from the blueberry fruit.
Dragon Ball Z
Blueberry is an alligator/crocodile-like humanoid who works with Raspberry as a foot soldier in Frieza's interplanetary operations. He and his partner are among the militants sent to investigate the Dragon Balls, which have been seized by Vegeta. During Blueberry and Raspberry's search, they encounter Bulma, who is in possession of one of the artifacts. Convinced she knows the location of the other six dragon balls, the pair intimidates the girl, threatening to take her to Frieza for a more personal interrogation. As Frieza refrained from informing any of his low-class soldiers about the background of the Dragon Balls, only stressing their importance, Bulma intervenes, revealing to Blueberry and Raspberry that gathering the seven Dragon Balls results in the reward of a single wish (in reality, the Earthlings are unaware at this time that the Namekian Dragon Balls are capable of granting a total of three wishes). While his partner, Raspberry, finds the idea preposterous, Blueberry is intrigued by the idea of Frieza no longer being able to "boss [them] around."
The two then kidnap Bulma and demand she lead them to the rest of the Dragon Balls, still under the impression that she has them stashed away on Namek. At last Bulma comes up with an idea, "confessing" that the Dragon Balls are hidden deep beneath the sea. This plan nearly backfires when she leads them to a cavern and what she believes to be a dead end, however it appears that this cavern is the nest for thousands of crabs laid by a giant crab Bulma encounters earlier in the episode. Blueberry and Raspberry mistake these to be thousands of sets of Dragon Balls, before the giant crab makes an appearance to defend her offspring. Bulma manages to make an escape which apparently goes unnoticed, but is soon followed by a desperate and infuriated Blueberry and Raspberry. Their counterattack fails however, when the giant crab emerges from the sea and snatches them in its claws, before again dragging them below.
According to the Dragon Ball Cardass, Blueberry's battle power is 2,000.
