Tuffles (ツフル人, Tsufuru-jin) were a highly advanced, technological race of beings native to Planet plant. However, the planet was later taken over by the Saiyans, leaving the Tuffles on the edge of extinction. Despite essentially being exterminated, traces of the Tuffle race managed to survive the war with the Saiyans. The most notorious being Hatchiyack, a machine designed to amplify the "power of hate" in order to aid the Tuffles defeat the Saiyan menace. Its creator was Dr Raichi, a brilliant scientist who technically died on the same fateful night as the rest of his race, but was later resurrected as a Ghost Warrior by his own creation. Another infamous Tuffle remnant was Baby, a Tuffle biological experiment. Though Baby himself was not an actual Tuffle, he possessed their genetic information (notably that of the last Tuffle King), making him a DNA archive for the race.
