|“||Why did you decide to start walking rather than continue to crawl? And then why did you venture into space rather than continue to walk? Progress, my little friend. Natural evolution. Just as the inferior beings of this planet were replaced by our robot mutants, so too does forward progress dictate that this must happen throughout the galaxy. Dr. Myuu is the grand conductor of this orchestration, and there is nothing you can do to stop him! The strong must flourish and the weak must perish!||„|
|~ General Rilldo towards Goku in A General Uprising|
General Rilldo is a Machine Mutant created by Dr. Myuu and a villain from the Dragon Ball GT series. He acts as the commander of the Machine Mutants and Planet M-2.
Fighting Goku, Trunks, and Pan
Rilldo first appeared when another villain, Dolltaki, came to Planet M-2 with two of the Dragon Balls after his defeat at the hands of Goku, Trunks, and Pan. However Rilldo destroyed Dolltaki because of his failure.
Later when Goku, Trunks, and Pan came to planet M-2 with Goku asking Giru if this is his home planet, RIldo sent the elite Sigma Force to capture them with Pan believing that Giru betrayed her, Goku and Trunks. After they were destroyed, he went to take care of things himself. Rildo managed to trap Trunks using his mouth beam that can turn things into metal.
He was however defeated by Goku and quickly powered up by transforming into Meta Rilldo, using parts from the defeated Sigma Force. Goku was forced to transform into a Super Saiyan and after awhile, began to gain the upper hand. Rilldo transformed again into Hyper Meta Rilldo, which gave him the ability to fuse with any metal on the planet. Later Goku, Pan, and Trunks attempted to leave the planet with the help of Giru (who is not actually a traitor), only for Rilldo to grab their ship. Trunks told him that he was only a pawn to Dr. Myuu and that as soon as Baby was finished he would have likely been deactivated. Rilldo didn't listen to this and he was destroyed by a Kamehameha wave from all three of them.
Escape from Hell
Like all the other villains, Rilldo made an escape from Hell during the Super 17 saga. He first attacked Pan and Mr. Satan, but Gohan showed up and fought him instead. Rilldo managed to gain the upper hand by encasing his arm and leg in metal. Just as he was about to strike the killing blow, Rilldo was destroyed by Majuub.
Powers and AbilitiesRilldo possesses superhuman abilities, since he is a machine and the ability to manipulate energy, just like most of the other characters in the various Dragon Ball series. He also has an ability called Metal Breath, which is a green beam fired out of his mouth, that encases whatever it hits in metal. This attack can also spread to affect more of an area as seen in the Super 17 saga. Rilldo can also transform like numerous villains in Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT. He uses his first form to hide his true power, while he uses his other forms for serious battles. He can also turn into liquid metal.
- Rildo is very similar to Dabura in their history and attitudes toward their masters. Dabura's Stone Spit attack is also very similar to his Metal Breath attack.
- Rildo states that Goku would be like him if he ever became a Machine Mutant. This suggests that Rildo was an organic being at one point.
- In his Hyper Meta form, Rildo bears a resemblance to Cooler after he became Meta-Cooler. Interestingly, the two also had the same voice actor, Andy Chandler (who is also the narrator in the FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball GT).
- In the Blue Water dub, Rildo is called General Lock and is voiced by Steve Olson (who is also the narrator in the Blue Water dub of Dragon Ball GT).
- His attacks and his abilities are very similar to that of the T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
- Rildo's death is very similar to Albert Wesker near the end of Resident Evil 5.
