Korin (カリン Karin) is an anthropomorphic cat who lives atop a giant tower. He is a wise cat who is over 800 years old and is a martial arts master. He is widely known to western audiences as Korin, a pun on corn, as opposed to his Japanese name, Karin.


Korin is a Senbyō (仙猫, immortal cat) and is at least 800 years old when introduced in Dragon Ball.He is a deity who lives at the top of Korin Tower. The tower is located right underneath Kami's Lookout. It is a popular misconception to assume the tower and lookout are connected, however, as they are rarely shown together from a distance as separate. Korin plays a large role in Dragon Ball when he trains Goku during the Red Ribbon Army Saga. At later points in the series, Korin lends his assistance periodically to Goku and the Z Fighters by lending Senzu Beans to aid them in their journeys
