"Think of it Goku. With your body and my brain, we'd be unstoppable!"
Dr. Uiro (Ｄｒ．ウイロー, Dr. Uirō?)(Dr. Wheelo in the Engilsh dub) is the main antagonist in Movie 2. He was a brilliant scientist who performed experiments in biotechnology. Wheelo's ultimate goal was to modify the human race using his science. Before he could realize his goal he died but Dr. Kochin turned him into a cyborg. His name is a pun on uiro, a type of Japanese cake.
Dr. Kochin came through for his creator a second time fifty years later when he gathered the Dragon Balls and wished for Shenlong to thaw the ice-enshrouded fortress. Freed from his frozen sleep, Wheelo became obsessed with finding the world's strongest man so that his own brain might be transplanted into it. He sent Kochin and four bio-warriors to find this man, and at first they thought it was Master Roshi. But when Kishime, Mikokatsun and Ebifurya easily beat Roshi, Wheelo started to doubt they had the right person.
He then went after Goku's body. When Wheelo's further attempts to subdue Goku met with failure, the enraged scientist decided to kill him and all his friends. When that also failed, Wheelo decided to just concentrate the energy contained within his laboratory's power core to fire a gigantic wave and destroy the entire world. Goku was able to form a Spirit Bomb and used it to destroy Dr. Wheelo for good.
In the FUNimation dub of the movie, Dr. Wheelo says two minor curse words. When Goku is gathering energy for a Spirit Bomb, he says "What the hell is he trying to do?" And right when Goku strikes the deathblow with his Spirit Bomb, Wheelo says "Damn you Goku!" 'Hell' is often used in Dragonball Z due to HFIL also going by that name, but 'damn' is rarely used.
He is playable for the first time in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3
His exact power was unknown but since he could easily overpower the regular Kaio-ken but was completely outclassed by Kaio-ken X3, he probably had a power level comparable to Vegeta's in the Saiyan Saga.
