Universe 2 (第2宇宙, Dai ni Uchū) / The Gentle Universe (優しさの宇宙, Yasashisa no Uchū)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/u2.png

"This is the greatest form of Universe 2's warriors. Their mortal level may not be sufficient, but their love level is the highest in all universes!"
Jerez

The second Universe is also known as the Gentle Universe due to centering on The Power of Love. Universe 2 is overseen by the Goddess of Destruction Heles, the Supreme Kai Pell, and the Angel Sour. They form a twin Universe with Universe 11.

They ranked 6th among the universes with the highest mortal level, only being behind Universe 11 in terms of Universes that are forced to participate in the Tournament of Power.

    Universe 2 tropes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2018_03_25_at_111617_am.png

  • Adaptational Wimp: In the manga, Universe 2 performs far abysmally in the Tournament of Power. While in the anime, they were the second-to-last universe to lose a fighter, here, they prove to be quite a bunch of joke characters. Android 18 takes out Jimeze and Prum with relative ease within the first minutes of the Tournament of Power, and Hermilla and Vikal get taken out offscreen much later. The Maiden Squadron themselves only get a small moment to shine against Android 18, only to get it crushed by Gamisaras, who takes out the four via sneak attacks. And as for the remaining three? They get easily taken out by Berserker Kale, causing Universe 2 to be erased.
  • Butt-Monkey: Even though they have the second-highest mortal level among the teams in the tournament (and Ribrianne can put up a fight), they are, as a whole, actually quite weak. They can survive for a long time due to trickery and evasiveness, but the minute Universe 7 (i.e., the protagonists of the show) sets their eyes on them, they start to drop like flies. The manga made it worse by removing their more impressive moments.
  • Cessation of Existence: Their universe is the third to be erased from existencenote  after losing the Tournament of Power in episode 118. They do however get wished back thanks to Android 17.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Hermila and Prum use a strategy of sniping fighters from a distance. Interestingly enough, they're not part of the Universe 2 general ensemble, most likely due to the fact that their strategy was to remain undetected.
  • Deader Than Dead: Their warriors are all defeated, and they are one of the universes to be obliterated in the Tournament of Power. The Dragon Ball world has an afterlife, but being erased like Universe 2 means you cease to exist completely. They however come back thanks to Android 17 wishing them back.
  • Edible Theme Naming: All the fighters from Universe 2 appear to be named after steaks and ribs.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Their entire universe. Once they are eliminated, they face erasure with a smile.
  • Famous Last Words: "Love!" The whole Universe 2 team say this along Ribrianne before being erased. Ribrianne adds a "bye bye" at the end. Averted, of course, come the end of the tournament.
  • Fangirl: All of the front fighters squee when Brianne and the Maiden Squadron transform. That being said, they do join in their transformation ceremony. Ribrianne and her team members are also very popular in their universe, with them appearing on t-shirts. Even Zarbuto has some merch.
  • Foil:
    • The effeminate and pretty universe in contrast to its masculine justice twin universe.
    • Episode 118, funny enough, establish Universe 2's population as a contrast with Universe 9. Universe 9 was established as a garbage dump of a universe, with the city destroyed by Sidra on one of its planets looking like some sort of really poor third world country, and the first thing the population did when discovering about the possible erasure of their universe is to try to escape from it, meaning they didn't had any faith in their team. By contrast, the planet where Brianne de Chateau was introduced is a neon glamorous city, with its population knowing about the tournament and having faith in their "goddess" Ribrianne and her team to save them.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Upon being defeated, the entire team calmly smiles and accept what's going to happen. Some even warmly hug one another in their final moments.
    Android 18: They were like that to the very end. After everything, they were pretty cool.
  • Graceful Loser: As previously mentioned, they handle their demise with the utmost class.
  • Mythology Gag: Oddly enough, three of the male members of the team appear to be based on characters from Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans. Zarbuto is a Tuffle, Rabanra has a similar appereance to Hatchyjack, and Zirloin is similar in appereance to Captain Rildo. Likewise, they have a Yardrat, another minor species in the setting.

Deities

    Jerez 

Jerez (ヘレス, Heresu)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1497033683754.png
Voiced by (Japanese): Masumi Asano
Voiced by (English): Maryam Baig
Voiced by (Latin American Spanish): Cristina Hernández

Jerez: Who is the most beautiful person in all of Universe 2?
Servant: It is you, my lady Jerez.
Jerez: No! I'm the most beautiful being in all of the universes!

Jerez is the Goddess of Destruction of the second universe. Has a thing for beautiful things, and will destroy anything she considers ugly.

She was designed by both Toriyama and Toyotarō.


  • Adaptational Personality Change: The Latin American dub of the anime drops "beautiful" and "ugly" from her word choices, toning down her personality.
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: While the other gods hate Goku for suggesting the Tournament of Power and his casual attitude towards Zeno, she still states that he's beautiful, and it's implied that it's not just part of her "'beautiful' = 'good'/'strong'" manner of speaking. In the English dub she even calls him "fetching".
  • Ambiguously Bi: On the one hand, Heles states that Goku is beautiful and is obviously attracted to him rather than being just part of her "'beautiful' = 'good'/'strong'" manner of speaking. On the other hand, she also finds Ribrianne to be absolutely beautiful too, and seems to heavily favor and fawn over her the most out of all the fighters.
  • Archer Archetype: Manga only, she uses a bow and arrow during the Gods' sparring match.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Aside from the normal attire seen in other Gods of Destruction, Heles wears a top that exposes her stomach.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: In Jerez's eyes, it seems. She only destroys anything she considers ugly, and as noted below, she even seems to substitute "beautiful" for "good". However, her standards for beauty are quite alien, since she founds Ribrianne giant transformation to be "the most beautiful thing she has ever seen".
  • Benevolent Boss: Like Pell, it is clear that Jerez cares for her fighters, never mocking or insulting them when they lose. She also shows concern and gets horrified after Jimizu gets pounded by Frieza and is always cheering enthusiastically for the Maiden Squadron. She's not even upset when the Maiden Squadron lose, telling them they did well.
  • Catchphrase: Tend to use "beautiful" and "ugly" a lot, as a substitute for "good" and "bad", and sometimes "strong" and "weak".
    Jerez: It's not beautiful to attack Ribrianne before she transforms!
  • Comically Missing the Point: She and Pell give Zarbuto and Rabanra the Potara earrings to fuse, but due to Zarbuto being a fool, Kefla destroys the earrings, not allowing any of the U2 fighters to fuse. She should be angry, but instead, just calm herself and marvels at the beauty of the fragmenting Potara sparkles.
    Jerez: The fragmenting Potara, this too, is beautiful...
  • Cool Crown: The Goddess wears an Egyptian-like crown, bringing some Cleopatra vibes to her design.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Following the alcohol-theme naming, she is named after Sherry, a Spanish wine originating in Jerez de la Frontera''.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Credit Heles with this much: when she knows it's over, she smiles and says they'll accept their fates gracefully and beautifully, grateful to her warriors for how they've fought.
  • Fatal Flaw: Vanity roughly. This is the main reason why her Universe is on the chopping block as she's constantly obsessed with love and beautiful things. Granted she is a good God at the least, but this focus blinds her to many of the things going on around her that she doesn't do her job properly.
  • Foil: To Vermoud, the God of Destruction from Universe 11 (and their twin universe). Both are rather competent Gods of Destruction for lower-leveled universes, yet are quite egotistical, both having servants who remind them who's in charge (in the manga at least). Jerez rules based on beauty and destroys anything ugly, while Vermoud rules based on justice and destroys anything evil. Both were also designed by Toriyama and Toyotaro. Despite this, however, Jerez is shown to benevolent despite the hypocritical claim of the Maidens, while Vermoud is something of a bad guy despite also coming from a heroic universe with the Pride Troopers.
  • Godzilla Threshold: After Ribrianne is knocked out of the ring, Jerez tells her remaining three warriors that she doesn't care if their results aren't beautiful, so long as they win.
  • Hidden Depths: Jerez is vain, and values beauty to the point of which she'll destroy anything she considers ugly... however, it's been repeatedly shown that she considers the Maiden Squadron transformations to be very beautiful, and has warriors that wouldn't be considered conventionally attractive (for instance, Prum). And despite being a Goddess of Destruction, her universe is known as the "gentle universe".
  • Human Aliens: The goddess looks like an earthling woman.
  • Lean and Mean: She is quite lean, and considering she is the Goddess of Destruction she errs on the side of being a jerk. Despite this, however, her universe is known as the "gentle universe" and is among the universes with highest levels of mortal quality, being only 5th, so she can't be that bad.
  • Ms. Exposition: Explains the powers of Kakunsa and Rosie as they're fighting Android 17 and Goku respectively.
  • Nepharious Pharaoh: She looks like Cleopatra, similar to how Beerus and Champa look like Bast.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Has this in the Anime.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": She is either Jerez, Helles, or Heles, depending of the source.
  • Proud Beauty: In the manga she describe herself as "the most beautiful being in all the universes".
  • Shipper on Deck: For Vikal/Kakunsa, calling their love the face of Universe 2.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She is the only female God of Destruction, and as such the strongest non-angel female character in the whole multiverse.
  • World's Strongest Woman: Up to Eleven, as she's actually her universe's strongest woman. She has to be if she's the Goddess of Destruction.

    Sour 

Sour (サワア, Sawaa)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sour.png
Voiced by (Japanese): TBA
Voiced by (Latin American Spanish): Alan Fernando Velázquez

The angel serving Heles. Doesn't like the macho type, and prefers the intellectual side of things.


  • Bishōnen: An angel with beautiful features, looking similar to Legolas, and dislikes the macho type.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Like with all the angels, he is named after an alcoholic drink pun: Sour, a drink mixer.
  • Foil: With Pell, the Supreme Kai. Pell is someone that believes in Rated M for Manly, and works to get ripped. Sour is more in line with what Universe 3 Supreme Kai, Ea, believes, with the intellectual level.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is either Sour, or Sawar, depending on the source.
  • Lack of Empathy: Implied. During the Tournament of Power, Sour has been shown to be quite indifferent to the events happening. When Vikal was thrown out of the arena, he simply noticed without a care in the world, and didn't react when Jimuzu was getting tortured and almost killed by Frieza unlike Heles and Pell. He is also the only member of Universe 2 to not give some of his "love" to Ribrianne during her Last Stand (The other three members who didn't were busy dealing with Goku). That said, however, he doesn't appear to have any sort of grudge to his universe like Mojito.
  • Minor Major Character: Like many angels in the Universal Survival saga, his role is pretty minor despite being an angel. He only has one line of dialogue in the series, thus far. He doesn't say anything after his team is eliminated either.
  • Sole Survivor: Of Universe 2, for a time.

    Pell 

Pell (ペル, Peru)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/peru_5.png
Voiced by (Japanese): Kōzō Shioya
Voiced by (English): Charlie Campbell
Voiced by (Latin American Spanish): Eduardo Tejedo

"A lot of good smarts won't do, you brainiac. It's called the "Tournament of Power"! Sheer brute force is all that's gonna matter!"

The Supreme Kai of Universe 2. Works to get ripped.


  • Badass Beard: Has a pretty nice beard, and he is a God of Creation, so that has to count for something.
  • Benevolent Boss: He cares deeply about his universe and its denizens, always cheering them on and supporting them even when they fail. When Jimeze is knocked out and nearly killed by Frieza, Pell immediately rushes to Jimeze's side, comforting him while tending to his wounds. Pell shows his great compassion for his subordinates again after Zirloin, Ranbanra, and Zarbuto are eliminated; although Universe 2 is doomed to erasure Pell has nothing but glowing praise for the trio's valiant efforts.
  • Butt-Monkey: He is the victim of some misfortunes during the Tournament of Power. When Vikal was thrown out, she landed over him, and his potaras were destroyed, causing him to faint.
  • Can't Live Without You: His life is linked with the Goddess of Destruction. If he dies, so does she.
  • Fainting: When his potara earings are destroyed by Kefla in the ring, Pell passes out in the spectators stands.
    Pell: My Potaras! Oh no! *faints*
  • Foil: To both Sour and Ea. Pell believes in strength, while they prefer intellectual level. Ea and Pell have a rivalry.
  • The McCoy: Considers his Universe to be the "Brawns", which conflicts with Ea from Universe 3. He'd really get along with Rumsshi from Universe 10.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: He looks very unusual among the Supreme Kais, with his largely bald head and stocky build. One could have mistaken him for a God of Destruction if it wasn't for his clothing.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite his Rated M for Manly mindset, even he was moved by the love of Vikal/Kakunsa.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is either Pell or Peru, depending on the source.

The Maiden Squadron

    General Tropes 

The Maiden Squadron

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kamikaze_fireballs2.jpg

"Let it bloom, let it ring. The song of love and victory!"
Brianne de Chateau

A team of Magical Girls, lead by Brianne de Chateau, that have the power to transform into more powerful forms. They were chosen by Heles as the representant of Universe 2 for the Tournament of Power. All of them were considered key players in the tournament of power, despite one of them getting knocked out in the same episode of their introduction.


  • Adapted Out: Their human forms don't appear to exist in the manga.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In contrast to the good showing the trio had in the anime (with Ribrianne and Rozie lasting until the later stages of the tournament), in the manga, after a short show of the three, all three of them get taken out VERY easily by Gamisaras from Universe 4.
  • Affectionate Parody: Of the Magical Girl genre, something that Toei Animation has previous experience in.
  • All There in the Manual: The group was originally presented as the "Kamikaze Fireballs", but they were never called by that name in the anime, and later (and updated) material referred to them as the "Maiden Squadron", and considering that they themselves address themselves as Maidens ...
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: The formation transformation makes any of their users gain a grayish skin.
  • Amazon Brigade: They are a team of Magical Girls, lead by Brianne de Chateau.
  • Appearance Is in the Eye of the Beholder: Krillin thinks that their transformed states aren't really pleasing compared to their human forms, but Whis points out that many other people, including Old Kai, most of Universe 10, almost all of the Pride Troopers (even Top and Dyspo blush), and Ganos find them very beautiful. Hell, in the manga Beerus even calls Ribrianne a little cute. Additionally, Vegeta thinks that Ribrianne looks so outright disgusting to the point where he has trouble even punching her.
  • Distaff Counterpart: They are based on the Magical Girl genre in a contrast with the Pride Troopers who are Sentai heroes. It makes sense when you take in consideration both universes 2 and 11 are twins. Ribrianne even sounds like Top in some of her speeches.
    Ribrianne: Who needs compliments from the Warrior of Darkness?!
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Early supplementary material referred to their group as the "Kamikaze Fireballs", but they were never called that in the show and later (and updated) material referred to them as the "Maiden Squadron" instead. With that being said, their group name is never explicitly referred, but they are referred to as maidens by everyone.
  • Expy: If the Pride Troopers are this towards Super Sentai, then the Maiden Squadron is this towards the Magical Girl genre, but especially towards Pretty Cure. Notably, their introductions are reminiscent of the intros done in Fresh Pretty Cure! and Ribrianne's main attack is based off of Cure Heart's "My Sweet Heart" attack. The "Limit Break x Survivor" intro shows Ribrianne launching an attack that looks like a reverse Pink Forte Wave. Ribrianne's final fight has the warriors of Universe 2 use wands that function similarly to the Miracle Lights used in the Pretty Cure All Stars movies, transforming her in a giant Ribrianne that looks like an affront to the Heartcatch Orchestra. And when their Universe is about to be erased, they make one last speech that could well be interpreted as interacting with the audience, something the leading Cures do at the end of each season to introduce the next season’s leading Cure.
  • Fangirl: After Jimeze teleports Ribrianne and Rozie away from Goku and Android 17, they proceed to try and weed out weaker warriors. After Jimeze takes out a Universe 10 warrior, the two girls squee like crazy almost as if he's Tuxedo Mask or something.
  • Foil: To the Pride Troopers, from Universe 11. They are both based off Japanese superheroes, with the Maiden Squadron being based off of Magical Girls. However, while the entirety of Universe 11's team are Pride Troopers, only three of Universes 2's ten are actual heroes.
  • Hollywood Homely: Zigzagged in their transformed state. They're considered beautiful in-universe by members of other universes, and especially their own, but members of Universe 7 consider them...less so. One notable moment is Vegeta is about to counterattack Ribrianne, but he cringes at the prospect and dodges instead.
  • It's Personal: They really don't like Android 17 after he interrupted their transformation. Him taking out two Universe 2 members have fueled their revenge on him.
  • Last Stand: No, not them. The male versions of them. Yes, Zarbuto, Rabanra, and Zirloin serve as the last warriors of Universe 2, and thanks to The Power of Love, they adopt the powerups of all three of them.
  • Love Potion: Their "light of Love" attack is a Combination Attack that infects the Tournament of Power arena with a lovely aroma, that makes a good chunk of the male fighters dizzy, with them being blinded by love for the Maiden Squadron. It works similar to the "Attract" technique in Pokémon, by comparison. However, much like Pokémon, this attack doesn't work on females, or people with a serious attitude like Universe 7 fighters (and Frieza), Cabba, Botamo, and Jiren.
  • Magical Girl Warrior: With a very strong emphasis on "warrior", considering their debut arc. All of them have this motif, being a loose parody of sorts.
  • Meaningless Meaningful Words: They keep talking about spreading love. Though it doesn't appear to be actual love and more along the lines of love themed attacks to defeat others.
  • Phrase Catcher: Both Rozie and Kakunsa get told "Your fighting style was worth studying"/"This fight has been very instructive, I appreciate the lesson" (sub and dub respectively) by Goku and Android 17 respectively as they proceed to take them out. Kakunsa gets taken out ... Rozie is lucky that Jimeze teleported her and Ribrianne away from the battle in time.
  • Power-Upgrading Deformation: All three members take on very unconventional appearances as a result of their transformations, which some regard as strange or even repulsive. Not that a lot of people really mind though ...
  • The Power of Love
    • Weaponized. The Maiden Squadron are over-the-top parodies of the Magical Girls genre, who proclaim everything they do is out of love. Of course, this is more of being just a theme if anything, since they're destructive powerhouses who'll gladly destroy anything that stands against them.
    • One who masters the power of love can even summon a gigantic black hole that paralyzes their foes. The original three weren't able to do it, but the male versions of them were.
  • Transformation Is a Free Action: Zig-zagged. When Brianne first shows off her powers, the drag queens she's about to hurt are apparently unable or unwilling to interrupt. During the tournament they decide to make a big show of transforming all at once. 17 shoots them in the middle of it since they were open to attack, only for the Maiden Squadron, Goku, and Toppo to berate him for interrupting. It seems everyone else in the tournament is just very polite.
  • Transformation Sequence: In the anime, the three Maidens come to the Tournament of Power as their normal selves and after they are hit by a stray blast when beginning to power up instead hold off their transformation until some time has passed in the Tournament of Power, and make a huge show about it as well. In the manga? Ribrianne's recruitment scene is never shown (so we never got to see her transform there) and the three girls are already transformed by the time they enter the arena, therefore they're already fighting at the beginning.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Rozie and Ribrianne both fit this. Despite Goku chastising 17 for interrupting their transformations with a sneak attack earlier, they both try to enact Revenge by Proxy on 17 and Universe 7 as a whole by eliminating Goku. Ribrianne especially because she later proves herself a hypocrite by trying to sneak attack Goku herself.

Voiced by (Japanese): Rina Kitagawa

Voiced by (Latin American dub): Lety Amezcua

"Happiness to one and all, I send you my love! Ribrianne!"

Brianne de Chateau looks like a normal girl, but with an invocation, she can transform into the Magical Girl Ribrianne. She represents Universe 2 for the Tournament of Power and is the leader of the Maiden Squadron.


  • 100% Adoration Rating: She is loved and adored by everyone in Universe 2 as the citizens love her singing and kindness and they support her and her team to the very end during the Tournament of Power.
  • Acrofatic: Despite her shape, she is able to go toe to toe with Super Saiyan Vegeta, even laughing while fighting him.
  • Adapted Out: In the manga, the human base form of Brianne de Chateau, alongside that of the other maidens, doesn't appear to exist. This is because the magical girl parody aspect of their characters was a Toei Animation idea, according to Word of God, and Toyotaro seeminly wants to use a more Truer to the Text (well, outline) version of Ribrianne.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Is much less formidable and durable in the manga. Despite being advertised as playing a significant role in that adaptation, she gets overpowered by Android 18 and ultimately gets taken out by Gamisaras from Universe 4 alongside her other Maiden Squadron members and Android 18 herself.
  • Animal Motifs: Butterflies. When transforming into Super Ribrianne, she wraps herself in a cocoon of energy and hatches from it with butterfly wings.
  • Ass Kicks You: During her fight with Android 17, she launches herself butt first at him.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: As the leader of the Maiden Squadron, she's the strongest member of the team, fighting 17 on even terms when her teammates were overwhelmed by 17 and Goku in his normal state.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: When cheered on enough by her teammates, she can generate a giant energy construct of her winged Super Mode.
  • Boisterous Weakling: While not exactly a weakling (considering she can evenly clash with Super Saiyan Vegeta and Android 17), she still talks a lot of trash, despite only having one successful elimination (and by accidentally attacking a distracted enemy) and getting overwhelmed by stronger opponents like Super Saiyan Blue Goku or Jiren.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Ribrianne directly asks the viewers to not miss her new transformation in Episode 117's preview. Likewise, she frequently looks at the camera to speak to the audience. See Leaning on the Fourth Wall.
    Ribrianne: Today it is I, Ribrianne's shinning moment! There's a spectacular transformation, so don't miss it! Sending love!
  • Boobs of Steel: Post-transformation, Ribrianne is quite the Gonk in the eyes of Universe 7, but she is the most powerful of her teammates, Made of Iron to boot, and the most well-endowed.
  • Butt-Monkey: Happens to her in episode 109. After dramatically powering up to her second Super Mode, Goku takes her out in one shot using Super Saiyan Blue. She crashes into Jiren, who intimidates her into running away without even looking at her. When Goku is charging the Spirit Bomb, she tries to blast him while he's distracted, only for Vegeta to blast her in the face while she's distracted. In general, Ribrianne acts like your typical Goldfish Poop Gang villain who gets in the protagonists' way, only to be comically smacked around.
  • Casting Gag: In the Funimation Dub, she's voiced by Sailor Moon alumnus Veronica Taylor, who played the equally magical defender Sailor Pluto in the Viz dub.
  • Catchphrase: "Let this emotion feel you!", used as the start of an attack. Her U2 teammates even take part in quoting the attack.
  • Calling Your Attacks: In true Magical Girl style, "Let this emotion feel you! Pretty Cannon!"
  • Character Development: Despite being a warrior of love, Ribrianne's definition of love was purely based on a physical level, as she finds herself unable to believe that 18 could ever love someone like Krillin. Once she's knocked out of the tournament due to 18's love for Krillin motivating her, she begins to see that there's more to love than just appearance, and takes her defeat well.
  • Character Shilling: The Grand Minister notes that the Pride Troopers are the favorites to win the tournament, but thinks that strong women like Brianne have the potential to upset them. During the Tournament of Power, her universe teammates adore her, and Heles makes long speeches about how lovely she is - this partly extends to other universes (not including Universe 7), with Toppo liking her and allowing her to transform, and Universe 8's God of Destruction Liquiir finding her interesting. Even after she's eliminated, she spends most of the following episode as a vocal supporter of the remaining Universe 2 fighters and coaches them into acquiring the Maiden Squadron's transformations, and remains the most-focused member of Universe 2 on the stands.
  • Combat Pragmatist: While Goku was charging up his Spirit Bomb, Ribrianne tries to shoot him in the back with her Pretty Cannon, but gets blasted into a boulder for her troubles by Vegeta.
  • Designated Girl Fight: Her last opponent during the Tournament of Power is no other than Android 18, who ends up defeating Ribrianne with no other than her love for her husband. Talk about irony.
  • Death by Irony: Not exactly death, but defeat. Despite preaching about love for all of the Tournament, she ends up being defeated by Android 18 and her love for Krillin.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: She transforms into Ribrianne to blast two women, leaving them injured, just because they questioned her capabilities as a martial artist.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appears briefly in the Limit Break x Survivor before her appearance on the show. She was also one of the warriors advertised in magazines alongside Jiren and Kale.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Is likely an anagram of Chateaubriand steak. Ribrianne may be a Portmanteau of "ribs" and this steak dish.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She's introduced as a pretty young girl with a Non-Standard Character Design since she looks like someone from a Magical Girl series. She quickly proves to be just that by transforming in a similar manner to Sailor Moon and attacking with a giant heart. Likewise, she directly speaks to the camera to emphasize her persona.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: "Evil" is questionable, but she's definitely a selfish, hypocritical, petty jerk who will blast people just for doubting her fighting prowess. That said, for all of her character flaws, she does genuinely care for her teammates.
  • Evil Is Petty: She's not exactly evil, but her attempt at taking potshots at Goku while he was charging his Spirit Bomb is pretty much a petty jab at Universe 7 as a whole for Android 17 nailing them earlier with an energy beam while they were transforming. Tactically, it would be wiser to let someone with Jiren's focus who wasn't bothering her be, and it was despite Goku having chastised 17 for it. She also blasted two people for doubting her abilities.
  • Fireball Eyeballs: Her eyes come aflame when she loses her temper at 17 eliminating Kakunsa.
  • Flight: When she turns into Super Ribrianne, a pair of butterflies wings grow in her back, allowing her to fly and be one of the very few characters able to do so in the Tournament of Power, expecially after almost all of the flyers were taken out after she transforms.
  • Foil:
    • In a strange way, she could almost seem like a female Zarbon. Both appear feminine and conventionally attractive at first, but bulk up for their battle forms, losing appeal for most. They even both have green hair, and Ribrianne shares Zarbon's blue skin. Interestingly, whereas Zarbon had distaste for using his form, Brianne has none whatsoever and seems to enjoy being Ribrianne.
    • To Kale. Kale is a shy girl with a transformation that turns her into a giant berserker beast that appeals to muscle, while Brianne is a confident girl with a powerful transformation that turns her fat, but completely controllable, appealing to femininity. Kale also gains green hair when transforming, while Brianne loses her green hair when doing so.
    • To Top as well. Both are leaders for a superhero team (that are twin universes for each other) and are shown to be quite formidable for opponents in the Tournament of Power. They are both Acrofatic fighters and are held in really high regards by their universes. However, Ribrianne is implied to be the strongest member of her universe, while Jiren, a subordinate, is the strongest in his. Additionally, both started losing motivation while their members were falling and were having disadvantages. While Toppo decided that there's no "justice or evil", only "survival and erasure" after Dispo mentioned about justice, Ribrianne entered a Heroic BSoD that Roasie snapped her out from. Both were even eliminated by someone with a stronger set of ideals (Ribrianne got eliminated by Android 18 and her love of her husband, while Ribrianne didn't believe that such love was possible, while Top threw away his ideals of justice and got eliminated by Vegeta who still had his strong ideals). The main difference between both, however, is that Top, despite how rude he may seem, has his heart where it should be, while Ribrianne is pretty much a hypocrite.
    • And to even Monna from Universe 4. Both are Acrofatic female fighters that were significantly showcased in their teams (The Maiden Squadron in Universe 2/Ganos, Nink, and Monna in Universe 4). Ribrianne and Monna also have really mean personalities despite being cute on the outside, with Ribrianne being a bit more subtle, being a Hypocrite and having habits of Disproportionate Retribution, while Monna is an outright Jerkass and Sadist. Additionally, both of their One-Winged Angel forms involve them turning into giant fighters, and they're both the seventh fighters taken out in their respective universes. What makes them different is that Ribrianne is more prevalent and knows when not to mess with things (i.e. while facing Goku and Jiren), while Monna was outright determined to crush Cabba even after he overpowered her. Another big difference is that Ribrianne does have positive points and clearly cares for her teammates and for the people of Universe 2, Monna on the other hand is simply shown to be a jerk.
  • Gag Boobs: When Ribrianne transforms into her giant form, her boobs grow to the point that they're bigger than her head.
  • Gainaxing: She gets this a couple of times as Ribrianne, though it's fairly realistic (as a woman her size would indeed bounce copiously during a fight). Notably, it only occurs on episodes with an Animation Bumpnote  due to budgetary concerns.
  • Gonk: Played With. Ribrianne design is not exactly repulsive to look at, as she had the standard cute elements of a fairy (like the fairy godmothers from Sleeping Beauty). However, the anime gives her a lot of Gross Up Close Ups focusing on her nose or making strange expressions, and along her cartoony expressions that don't quite match the art style of the other characters make her actually unpleasant to watch for some of the characters (And some of the viewers).
  • Graceful Loser: After her elimination from the tournament, when she sees the love between 18 (the one who eliminated her) and Krillin, she smiles and accepts her defeat, noting that there is all sorts of different love out in the universes.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Gives one in Episode 101.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Brianne has green hair, but since she is from another universe, it may be natural.
  • Heart Beat-Down: Her attacks and Transformation Sequence are heart-themed.
  • Human Aliens: Brianne is a humanoid girl, but the planet she was in is riddled with Amazing Technicolor Population. However, this doesn't hold true when she transforms into Ribrianne.
  • Hypocrite:
    • She calls Android 17 evil all throughout their fight for ringing out Kakunsa, yet her Establishing Character Moment has her blast and injure two women over a mere insult, far worse than 17 eliminating a competitor when his universe is at stake same as hers.
    • She criticizes 17 for interrupting their transformation, but she was planning on attacking Goku while he was powering up the Spirit Bomb. Worse yet, Goku had actually criticized 17 for doing so, and yet she tries to do the same thing for petty reasons.
    • During her fight with Goku she asks what he intends to do with the Super Dragon Balls, to which Goku admits he has no idea and thinks he would use it for his family. Ribrianne criticizes him over this and calls him heartless several times over the episode, effectively saying he is selfish. However Ribrianne's desire is to use the Super Dragon Balls to wish to become a Goddess of Love - even if taken into context of being part of her self-proclaimed 'duty' to spread love, rather than simply her own desire, it's still an incredibly selfish wish compared to Goku's idea of using it for his family, making her seem the heartless one.
    • During her fight with 18, Ribrianne mocks the idea of 18 being in love with Krillin. This ends up being hypocritical on two levels, both because Ribrianne is a Gonk (to the audience/U7 anyway; U2 seem to legitimately think she's beautiful in that form, among others) and because she dismisses the idea that 18 is fighting for her family, while Ribrianne's own idea of love is hilariously superficial. After getting eliminated, Brianne at least seems to acknowledge this final portion, realizing that there are other kinds of love out there.
  • It's All About Me: Her Hypocrisy and Moral Myopia shows this. She seems to care about herself and her universe, her teammates, and no one else. There's also her desired wish with the Super Dragon Balls: she hopes to become a goddess of love and make all beings in the multiverse love her, out of all the things she could wish for like ending wars and creating peace, which is itself an act that makes one question her morality. Said wish would've proven that she wasn't virtuous and would've doomed the multiverse to getting erased if she was ever considered an MVP.
  • It's Personal: After Kakunsa is blasted out of the ring by 17, Ribrianne gets rather pissed with him and goes to confront him personally.
  • Jerkass: Blasts and injures two people just for doubting her abilities, tries to sneak attack Goku despite him scolding 17 when 17 sneak-attacked Ribrianne, calls 17 evil for eliminating her teammates when he has just as much at stake as she does, and wants to have all people in the multiverse love her. The only people she seems to care about are her teammates.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em:
    • When firing explosive hearts down to the arena, she knows that screwing with Jiren will probably get her knocked out quickly. Vegeta also blasts her attack at the same exact time as well... leading her to fight with him.
    • When her fight with 17 goes nowhere and Rozie finds herself outmatched by Goku, she agrees to teleport away with Jimizu and doesn't try to restart the fight, instead joining him to pick on some of the weaker ones.
    • When Goku subjects her to a Single-Stroke Battle after going Blue and rolls up to Jiren’s feet, she decides to book it, knowing she’s a mere insect amongst the two.
  • Last Stand: Brianne takes part of the one made by Universe 2 (despite being knocked out already) by asking Universe 2 to give all their love and support to the last fighters Zirloin, Zarbuto, and Rabanra. She strongly contributed to the final battle.
  • Light Is Not Good: Despite having shining Transformation Sequences and being a Magical Girl, she’s got the most unpleasant, self-serving personality among them.
  • Large Ham: She loves to play her Magical girls tropes, giving bombastic speeches and posing without a care in the world, is no wonder Toppo took a liking at her. She even started a Ham-to-Ham Combat with Number 17 (who was playing along), which mirrored Goku' first confrontation with Toppo.
    Ribrianne: You warrior of darkness who would destroy our Universe 2! First, identity yourself!
    17: I see. So I'm evil. Very well, I am Android 17! Warrior of Love, Ribrianne. In order for our universe to survive, I shall eliminate you from this arena!!
    Ribrianne: I won't let you! As long as my love does not fade, I shall protect the happiness of Universe 2!
  • Leitmotif: She, alongside the Maidens, consistently shares the theme of "Warrior's spirit", a cute-sounding theme which reflects her love-motif persona.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Brianne de Chateau' characterization is of a showgirl who loves to talk with the public, like some Magical Girls are known for doing. Due to this, there are many scenes of her directly speaking to the camera like if she is speaking directly to the viewer. Even she gracefully accepts defeat, saying goodbye to the viewers along her team.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Much like Fat Buu, Ribrianne is much faster than her rotund appearance would suggest, she can tank some of Goku and Vegeta's attacks with no visible damage, and is quite the heavy hitter in her own right.
  • Love Hungry: States to Goku that her wish with the Super Dragon Balls is to become a love goddess, because everyone in all of the universes would love her. If she was to make such a wish at the end of the tournament, the multiverse would have been doomed, as it would probably be considered a very selfish wish.
  • Made of Iron: Ribrianne may not be all that strong compared to the heavy hitters in the tournament, but she can take a punch. Protracted battles with 17 and Goku, getting kicked through several obstructions by Super Saiyan Blue Goku, and getting a ki blast to the face from Vegeta haven't even scratched her.
  • Magical Girl: Is a parody of one, transforming from a pretty human girl into a rotund, gray-skinned girl.
  • Moral Myopia: She's livid when Android 17 eliminates Kakunsa and calls him evil for it, even though 17 has just as much stake in the survival of his universe as she does in hers. Not to mention, this is coming from the same person who injured two ladies just because they questioned her fighting capabilities.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Her design is quite different from Toriyama's usual style. She is drawn cuter with wide eyes in her human form. She wouldn't be out of place in Happiness Charge Pretty Cure, which makes sense since she's an obvious homage to the Magical Girl genre.
  • Oh, Crap!: Her reaction after she gets literally kicked out of her Super Ribrianne state and crash-lands right up to Jiren's feet. Her bragging stops right then and there for a while after she faces the no-nonsense warrior.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Throughout the tournament, Ribrianne has been nothing but exuberant, upbeat, and confident. So when she starts questioning and doubting whether Universe 2 can win, it's a clear sign that the stress of being in a tournament where she's constantly outclassed by far stronger warriors is getting to her. It's only brief, however, as a Rousing Speech from Rozie is enough to bring her to her usual happy self.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Poor Ribirianne gets hit with this hard. She is indeed strong enough to fight toe to toe with base Goku, Android 17 and even Super Saiyan Vegeta, has a very powerful Super Mode who allows her to fly and a technique that infatuates opponents, crippling them, on top of that, she is very durable and can take strong hits without even getting a scratch. However, like most contestants, she is severely overshadowed by the top dogs of the tournament, namely Jiren (who is above everyone anyway) and Super Saiyan Blue Goku. She starts to acknowledge in episode 111 and starts to despair, wondering if there is any possibility that U2 will survive.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Is almost never seen without a large smile on her face, though the context for some can make them come off as creepy.
  • Pet the Dog: After she is eliminated, she appears genuinely happy to see how much Krillin and Android 18 care for each other, despite finding 18's tastes peculiar at first.
    Brianne: Love? (smiles after seeing Krillin and 18) Perhaps there's a love out in the universe we don't know yet.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Wears a pink dress, and is the most feminine fighter in the Tournament of Power.
  • The Power of Love: She's able to grow stronger when people love her. Jerez and the Maiden Squadron cheering her on allows her to use her second Super Mode and last form.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Her Super Mode, Super Ribrianne, gives her butterfly wings and makes her stronger.
  • Rolling Attack: A Maiden's Charge! She's able to turn herself into a rolling, flaming ball to run down opponents.
  • Sore Loser: Subverted. When Ribrianne is knocked out of the tournament, she immediately starts crying. But once she sees the love between 18 and Krillin, she smiles and accepts her defeat, noting that there is all sorts of different love out in the universes.
  • Stout Strength: Her fighting form is significantly plus-sized and is strong enough to fight evenly with Vegeta and Android 17.
  • Super Mode: Her normal form is that of a slim, pretty girl. She transforms into her fatter form to do battle. She has a second transformation which gives her wings and a bow which fires heart-tipped arrows. And lastly, she has a last transformation that turns her second form the size of a Kaiju.
  • Transformation Sequence: She summons a bunch of hearts which change her from thin to fat.
  • Tranquil Fury: Transforms into Ribrianne and attacks two drag queens that question her capabilities as a fighter without any tone of anger whatsoever. The two turn out to be alright at the end, though.
  • Underestimating Badassery: She boasts that she's stronger than Goku during their fight, even though Goku hasn't transformed and she should be well aware of his ability to do so. A single kick from Super Saiyan Blue Goku knocks her right out of her second Super Mode and has her running for cover.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: To some small degree, it seems. She's extremely insistent upon spreading love throughout the universe(s), even to the point of wanting to become a love goddess with the Super Dragon Balls that everyone adores - which is questionable - yet she does mentions that it's her duty to spread love, rather than merely her desire.
  • Winged Humanoid: When cheered on by her teammates and Heles, she's able to sprout butterfly-like wings which enable her to fly and increase her power.
  • What Does She See in Him?: Once she discovers Android 18 is married with Krillin, she is rather puzzled at the thought, finding him ugly. After being defeated, however, she realizes there is possibly more types of love in the universe.
    Ribrianne: He is not beautiful! He doesn't even have a nose! What is wrong with you?!
    • Hilariously, in the manga, it's basically vice-versa - Ribrianne finds Krillin incredibly handsome, and considers 18 to be ugly.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Appears to be a Enforced Trope. While she is not exactly popular per se, she is among the most promoted characters in Dragon Ball promotional material along Top, Jiren, and the Saiyan girls. She is among the first characters from the saga to appear in Dragon Ball Heroes, and her outfit can be worn in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC 5 along the Pride Troopers uniform.
    • In the manga, it seems from the fact that she's on the cover alongside all of Universe 7, the significant Universe 6 fighters, and the top 3 Pride Troopers that she might be making an impact in the manga. Nope. Once it's her time to shine, it's a fight between her and Android 18, and once Android 18 overpowers and almost takes her out, Gamisaras wastes both of them through sneak attacks. Considering that at this point, Hit, Frost, Tien, and Krillin all got short roles in this version of the Tournament of Power, it isn't too surprising.
  • You Go, Girl!: One of the new female warriors in the Dragon Ball canon and she will destroy you if you question her as a martial artist.

"The strike of love, with dreams and magic! Roasie!"

A kind and gentle looking girl, who with the power of a transformation, turns into the Magical Girl Roasie. She is a warrior for Universe 2, participating in the Tournament of Power.


  • Adorkable: Both her base form and her transformation show this, having nerdy-like appearances.
  • Beam Spam: She loves to toss large amounts of energy blasts at her opponents, individually weak but overwhelming in their volume, especially when she mixes guided projectiles into the normal ones.
  • Confusion Fu: Her energy blasts can stop and change direction mid-flight, as Goku finds out when one dodges his punch and smacks him in the face. She hides them among her many blasts so opponents can never tell which ones are guided until it's too late.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Her transformation is shown in the "Far Away" ending credits before it appears in the show itself.
  • Gathering Steam: The more she attacks, the faster she can attack — up to and including making energy blasts just by punching the air fast enough.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Does this to Ribrianne when she starts doubting that Universe 2 can win the Tournament of Power.
  • Glass Cannon: Her energy blasts are powerful enough to give Goku (base Goku, but still) a hard time, but when he closes in using Instant Transmission, it only takes one energy blast to put her out of action.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Despite her complete human appearance, she has purple hair.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: Goku imitates her fighting style to throw her off-balance, coming very close to sending her out of the ring.
  • Human Aliens: Looks completely like a human, sans her purple hair (and even then, this is a series where Bulma exists).
  • Purple Is Powerful: One of her main colors in her transformation, and is part of the Maiden Squadron, a very powerful group from Universe 2.
  • Revenge by Proxy: After Kakunsa is defeated by Android 17, Roasie decides to take her anger out on Goku merely because they came from the same universe.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Her fighting style increases the power of her attacks with each strike, so rapid attacks allow her to build power very quickly.
  • Rubber Man: She and Kakunsa have stretchable arms in the manga that they use to trap Android 18.
  • Underestimating Badassery: She decides to take revenge on Android 17 for eliminating Kakunsa. It doesn't go well.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Her fighting style makes her difficult to approach, but she can't take a hit once someone gets past it. As soon as Goku outmaneuvered her, one energy blast was sufficient to put her on the ropes.

"The thunder of the wild! And the roar of love! Kakunsa!"

The third member of the Maiden Squadron, who with the power of transformation turns into the Magical Girl Kakunsa. She is a warrior of Universe 2, chosen by Jerez to participate in the Tournament of Power


  • Always Someone Better: Jerez boasts that Kakunsa's speed and stamina is great, that her kind can chase their prey until they are tired and they finish them off. However, Android 17, being an Eternal Energy enhanced human, is much faster and can literally never run out of stamina.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She alongside Ribrianne and Roasie find Krillin highly atractive in the manga, she is seemingly in a romantic relationship with Bikal.
  • Badass Gay: She is one of the most powerful beings in Universe 2, and is seemingly in a romantic relationship with Bikal.
  • Battle Couple: Subverted: Bikal saves Kakunsa and launches her at 17, but after that, Bikal goes off to help the others, leaving Kakunsa to deal with 17 herself. 17 doesn't let Bikal get away with saving her and casually smacks her off the stage before she can leave the battle, then turns his attention back to Kakunsa herself.
  • Blood Knight: Once transformed, she becomes a chaotic Cat Girl who shows a thrill for fighting. She repeatedly treats it as a hunting exercise, even calling her enemies prey.
  • Broken Faceplate: Her mask gets torn apart after Android 17 breaks free of her and Roasie's trap attack.
  • Butch Lesbian: As Kakunsa, she is very feisty and beast like. A sharp contrast to her normal form.
  • The Cameo: She appears alongside Prum as an illusion of Universe 4 fighter Shantza in episode 119, trying to strike Android 17 again.
  • Cat Girl: After transforming, she turns into a feline magical girl, with Pointy Ears and Super Speed.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end courtesy of Android 17. He lets her get a few hits in for fun before he surprises her with his overwhelming stamina.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Her transformation is shown in the "Far Away" ending credits before it appears in the show itself.
  • Fragile Speedster: Quite fast and agile in her transformed state befitting its cat-like nature, but she lacks the ability to take a hit.
  • Human Aliens: She looks completely like an earthling woman, much more than her friends.
  • Hot-Blooded: She's rather passionate about fighting as her battle with 17 showcases.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: As Sanka, she, like Brianne and Su, is very feminine, both in appearance, and attitude. As Kakunsa, however, she is very feisty and beast like.
  • Rubber Man: She and Roasie have stretchable arms in the manga that they use to trap Android 18.
  • Sore Loser: Has this reaction to her defeat, as when she's ringed out we see her snarling at 17 from the spectator stands.
  • True Blue Femininity: Wears a pretty looking blue dress.
  • This Cannot Be!: Has this reaction when 17 starts to overpower her in their fight.
  • Token Yuri Girls: With Bikal, much to our shock. Played for Laughs, as an over-the-top parody of magical girls romances.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her transformed form has blue hair, different from the antenna-hats from the other two girls.

"We fight to the end for love!"

A warrior from Universe 2 and a member of Team Universe 2.


  • Ass Kicks You: When he inherits Ribrianne's powers he mimics her butt attack against Goku.
  • The Big Guy: The most physically imposing of Universe 2 fighters, taller than everyone on the team.
  • Calling Your Attacks: After he effectively becomes Ribrianne he fights like a Magical Girl in every way, right down to him calling his attacks.
  • Determinator: For him, Rabanra, and Zarbuto — even after all of their teammates were eliminated, including the entire Maiden Squadron, and their chances of survival seemed to worsen by the minute, their determination to win and save their universe only grew stronger than ever. With Brianne's guidance, it leads to them discovering a trump card, transforming the three men into more powerful versions of the Maiden Squadron and they nearly pull off a miracle victory against Goku and the Androids.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Spell "Sirloin" but with a "Z".
  • Emotion Eater: As it turns out, Ribrianne and her Maiden Squadron aren't the only ones on the team who can use The Power of Love to reach new heights. When Zirloin along with Rabanra and Zarbuto absorb the love energy of their entire universe they transform into the Maiden Squadron 2.0 and actually end up wielding that power even better than the ladies did, almost managing to eliminate Goku, 17, and 18 from the tournament in one fell swoop.
  • Expy: He resembles Thanos from the Marvel Universe. He also looks a lot like General Rildo from Dragon Ball GT. His Ribrianne-inspired attire and poses also mirror the Para Brothers from the same series.
  • Face of a Thug: Appears imposing and threatening, but has been shown cheering on and rooting for Ribrianne and her teammates and taking part in the Ceremony of Love when they transformed. As it is for all denizens of Universe 2, love and beauty are very important to him. He even goes so far as to proudly wear Ribrianne's dress and use her girlish attacks after he inherits her powers.
  • Last Stand: After the defeats of Ribrianne and Roasie, he, Zarbuto, and Rabanra are the last remaining warriors for Universe 2, and they're fighting against main protagonist Goku. Even though Goku gets the best of them in the end they put up a surprisingly good fight against him.
    • Also serve as the Last Stand in the manga as well, considering his teammates were wasted by Android 18, Gamisaras, and other offscreen means.
  • Off-Model: In Universe 2's introductory team lineup, which was Zirloin's first appearance, his regalia included a gold breastplate, but curiously enough he has not been seen wearing it since — neither in subsequent appearances in the anime nor in any promotional material.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He receives Ribrianne's set of powers and uniform during his Last Stand using the love of the entire universe.
  • Transformation Sequence: He goes through one as he inherits Ribrianne's powers.
  • The Unfought: For most of the Tournament of Power we never saw any onscreen fighting from him — only very brief moments. Other than him occasionally appearing to cheer on Ribrianne's Maiden Squadron we barely see him until episode 117 when the few remaining Universe 2 warriors gang up on Goku.
    • Subverted: Zirloin is then put front and center into the action when he becomes the de facto leader of Team Universe 2 after Ribrianne is eliminated from the tournament.

"No matter how many times we fall, we rise!"

A Tuffle from Universe 2 and a member of Team Universe 2.


  • Ambiguously Human: Ambiguously Human Aliens, in this case. In other sources, Tuffles looked completely like Earthlings before their extintion, but Zarbuto has some orange skin compared with the Maidens.
  • Badass Cape: A white looking one, and he must be really strong to be chosen for the Tournament of Power. He is still standing in the arena even when only 24 minutes are left.
  • Badass Moustache: A white moustache, very similar to Top's.
  • Calling Your Attacks: After he effectively becomes Rozie he fights like a Magical Girl in every way, right down to him calling his attacks.
  • Canon Immigrant: Tuffles are never stated to exist in the manga, and were created for a videogame turned OVA, Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans, and Dragon Ball GT. Now, someone from their race appear in canon material.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Although he has a few moments where you'd think he's an obvious jobber and will never amount to anything, especially for the reasons listed in his Too Dumb to Live section, in the end he proves to be a surprisingly formidable fighter, and what's more when he, Zirloin, and Rabanra combine their powers they very nearly eliminate Goku and the Androids from the tournament.
  • Determinator: For him, Zirloin, and Rabanra — even after all of their teammates were eliminated, including the entire Maiden Squadron, and their chances of survival seemed to worsen by the minute, their determination to win and save their universe only grew stronger than ever. With Brianne's guidance, it leads to them discovering a trump card, transforming the three men into more powerful versions of the Maiden Squadron and they nearly pull off a miracle victory against Goku and the Androids.
  • Emotion Eater: As it turns out, Ribrianne and her Maiden Squadron aren't the only ones on the team who can use The Power of Love to reach new heights. When Zarbuto along with Zirloin and Rabanra absorb the love energy of their entire universe they transform into the Maiden Squadron 2.0 and actually end up wielding that power even better than the ladies did, almost managing to eliminate Goku, 17, and 18 from the tournament in one fell swoop.
  • Fusion Dance: Attempted, but ultimately averted, as he couldn't fuse with Rabanra due to his inexperience and idiocy, and Kefla destroying the Potara earrings.
  • Last Stand: After the defeat of Ribrianne and Roasie, he, Zirloin, and Rabanra are the last remaining warriors for Universe 2, and they're fighting against main protagonist Goku. Even though Goku gets the best of them in the end they put up a surprisingly good fight against him.
    • Also serve as the Last Stand in the manga as well, considering his teammates were wasted by Android 18, Gamisaras, and other offscreen means.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He receives Roasie's set of powers and uniform during his Last Stand using the love of the entire universe.
  • Stronger Than They Look: He eventually throws down with Goku and the Androids during Universe 2's Last Stand and instead of instantly jobbing like most of the audience expected him to he actually holds his own quite well against them.
  • Transformation Sequence: He goes through one as he inherits Rozie's powers.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Pell gives both Zarbuto and Rabanra the Potara earrings to fuse. Zarbuto, however, not only tries to put the earring on his wrong ear but also neglects to take off his helmet first, allowing Kefla to blast them off and destroy the earrings.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Averted, when it seemed that he and Catopesra were going to get knocked out by Goku and Caulifla powering up (even after showing little action), they ended up just fine.
  • Would Hit a Girl: At one point he goes head-to-head with Android 18 and pulls no punches against her.

"Yeah, I hear it! The voices of the people praying for our victory!"

A warrior from Universe 2 and a member of Team Universe 2.


  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The first time we see him, he's shown as a literal example of someone who gets the hell out of dodge at the sight of Jiren, and looks visibly cowardly. However, the next major time we see him, he's the competent one in attempting a Potara Fusion, and he also manages to set up a Last Stand with the other two remaining fighters ... and then The Power of Love happens, where he and his other fellow fighters are even able to form a black hole that almost knocks Goku, Android 17, and Android 18 out!
  • Calling Your Attacks: After he effectively becomes Kakunsa he fights like a Magical Girl in every way, right down to him calling his attacks.
  • Determinator: For him, Zirloin, and Zarbuto — even after all of their teammates were eliminated, including the entire Maiden Squadron, and their chances of survival seemed to worsen by the minute, their determination to win and save their universe only grew stronger than ever. With Brianne's guidance, it leads to them discovering a trump card, transforming the three men into more powerful versions of the Maiden Squadron and they nearly pull off a miracle victory against Goku and the Androids.
  • Edible Theme Naming: His name is based on the Japanese word baraniku; it means a part of beef.
  • Emotion Eater: As it turns out, Ribrianne and her Maiden Squadron aren't the only ones on the team who can use The Power of Love to reach new heights. When Rabanra along with Zirloin and Zarbuto absorb the love energy of their entire universe they transform into the Maiden Squadron 2.0 and actually end up wielding that power even better than the ladies did, almost managing to eliminate Goku, 17, and 18 from the tournament in one fell swoop.
  • Fusion Dance: Attempted, but averted. Despite following the Potara fusion steps well, Zarbuto couldn't and Kefla stopped them from fusing.
  • Hidden Depths: Appears to be familiar with how the Potara earrings works.
  • Humanoid Alien: He is an orange humanoid alien with Pointy Ears and has some sort of gem on his head.
  • Know When To Fold Them: When he gets near Jiren to fight him, he realizes how strong he is and goes to look for another opponent.
  • Last Stand: After the defeat of Ribrianne and Roasie, he, Zirloin, and Zarbuto are the last remaining warriors for Universe 2, and they're fighting against main protagonist Goku. Even though Goku gets the best of them in the end they put up a surprisingly good fight against him.
    • Also serve as the Last Stand in the manga as well, considering his teammates were wasted by Android 18, Gamisaras, and other offscreen means.
  • Mythology Gag: He bears a resemblance to Hatchyack, an antagonist related with the Tuffles. Rabanra screaming at Zarbuto, who is stated to be a Tuffle, is an In-Joke.
  • Prophet Eyes: Has blue sclera for eyes, and that's it, he doesn't have any pupils.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He receives Kakunsa's set of powers and uniform during his Last Stand using the love of the entire universe.
  • Transformation Sequence: He goes through one as he inherits Kakunsa's powers.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: His normal attire does not include a shirt.

"You fool! You shall not hurt the hope of Universe 2! Maidens, love and hope shall never die!"

A Yardrat who fights for Universe 2.


  • Adaptational Wimp: A relatively competent fighter in the Tournament of Power who was one of the few outside of Universe 6 and 7 to score a knockout plus give Gohan a hard time? That's the anime you're watching. In the manga, he's one of the very first to fall in the Tournament of Power.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Why exactly is a Yardrat, a race that belongs to Universe 7 and should exist on Universe 6, on Universe 2? Did Jerez and Champa traded members before the Tournament? Are Yardrats a race that is not exclusive to Beerus universe? Do the teleportation technique has something to do with it? So far, no answers.
  • Ascended Extra: Yardrats in general haven't been shown since Goku's flashback with them in Dragon Ball Z. Lampshaded by Goku and Vegeta. In the manga, though, he is a glorified extra.
    Goku: Isn't that a Yardrat?
    Vegeta: The ones with Instant Transmission?
    Goku: We should watch out.
  • Chick Magnet: Both Ribriane and Roasie blush and make heart eyes after seeing him take out a fighter.
  • Confusion Fu: His Teleport Spam and Beam Spam abilities make him a trying opponent despite his (relative) physical weakness, but he can also use the dust and debris kicked up by his ki blasts to mask his presence in a fight.
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: Jimizu isn't particularly strong, but his Instant Transmission and Beam Spam abilities make him a particularly difficult fighter to overcome. He can even hold his own against far more powerful opponents who aren't savvy to his fighting style, as seen when he nearly ringed-out Gohan. Ironically enough, this is how Freiza beats him; using several small energy blasts that nearly kill him.
  • Demoted to Extra: In the anime, Jimizu was a recurring antagonist from Universe 2, even taking an elimination. In the manga, he is taken out alongside Prum during the first seconds of the Tournament.
  • Edible Theme Naming: His name comes from Misuji beef.
  • Glass Cannon: An unusual example, as it isn't his physical prowess so much as his Teleport Spam that makes him dangerous. That said, he's easily schooled when up against an opponent who knows his tricks. Frieza not only anticipates his movements, but physically restrains him so he can't use his Instant Transmission.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: When Ribrianne and Roasie are cornered by 17 and Goku, neither having managed to overcome their foes, Jimizu teleports them to safety and they direct their attention elsewhere.
  • Nice Guy: He shows respect for Gohan and offers to teach him some of his techniques if they ever meet again (showing that he hopes that the Super Dragon Balls are used to restore the destroyed universes). He is one of the only fighters to hope things turn out good for the other universes.
  • No Holds Barred Beat Down: He's on the receiving end of this when Frieza decides to interrupt his fight with Gohan. Needless to say, it didn't end well for Jimizu.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: A great example within the tournament. He is one of the strongest members of Universe 2 and can easily defeat average opponents, as shown when he rings out Zircor effortlessly. However, compared with absurdly overpowered fighters like the Saiyans, he is a small fry. He ultimately suffers a humiliating loss to Frieza, who easily anticipates his attacks and beats him to within an inch of his life so he can't save himself from a ring-out.
  • Playing Against Type: A character example in-universe. Yardrats are known to be Weak, but Skilled, being weak fighters but have developed some amazing techniques. While he has access to Instant Transmission, he seems to be be reasonably strong for a Yardrat, judging by how quickly he recovered from Caulifla kicking him and how he eliminated Universe 10's Zircor. All things considered, he's a strong Yardrat, but that still makes him a little fish in a big pond.
  • Teleport Spam: He liberally uses his Instant Transmission, along with his ability to hide his energy, to keep Goku off-balance. Shame he forgot there were other fighters in the ring. He teleported shortly after Caulifla kicked him, so he wasn't knocked out.
  • Tempting Fate: He boasts that Goku can't trace his movements as he teleports around the ring, then Caulifla kicks him off the stage while he isn't paying attention. He escaped at that moment with teleportation.
  • Underestimating Badassery: He makes the mistake of thinking he can handle Frieza in the same manner he handled base-form Gohan. It ends with him near-death and blasted out of the ring.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Though certainly stronger than any Yardrat previously depicted, he isn't indicated to be particularly powerful in terms of the fighters in the tournament (Caulifla sent him flying with a kick, after all). However, his teleportation makes him a very versatile member of the team. As long as he's conscious he can teleport away from any ring-out and save his teammates from the same. Against Gohan, he teleports into Gohan's blind spots and has him on the ropes until Frieza intervenes.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: In the manga, he is taken alongside Prum without we even knowing who he is. Guess we will never know why a Yardrat is in Universe 2.

A sniper who teams up with Prum.


  • Arm Cannon: He has blasters built into his arms which allow him to fire potent ki blasts. Piccolo compares the shots to his Special Beam Cannon in their ability to pierce with great force.
  • Cold Sniper: He teams up with Prum, the two using their abilities to snipe opponents from afar. He is also quite The Stoic figure, not even taking part in Universe 2 love antics.
  • Defensive Feint Trap: After Tien hits him with a Tri-Beam, Harmira claims he's beaten, citing the wounds on his shoulders that prevent him from lifting his arms. Tien powers up another Tri-Beam to finish things, and then Harmira blasts the rubble they're standing on, sending Tien off the ring. He failed to account for the three copies Tien had made beforehand, however, who grab him and drag him out of the ring with Tien.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Although shadowed in the Team 2 reveal in Episode 96, the credits reveal him in the following episode, and he's shown to be green and orange. If you pay attention really closely, a back of him is revealed even before that. He's shown in the scene where Caulifla is telling Kale that her scared attitude could get others to look down on her.
  • Edible Theme Naming: His name comes from harami, meaning skirt steak.
  • Expy: He looks remarkably similar to Blanka from Street Fighter.
  • Not So Above It All: As stated, he is the most serious out if all of Universe 2's warriors, not partaking in their proclamations of love. That being said, he does form a heart with his hands with the rest of his team as his universe is erased, and is seen crying Ocular Gushers with them when they're revived by 17.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Gives off this vibe as he and Prum were introduced outlined in shadow when and did not take part in the Ceremony of Love with the rest of the Universe 2 team. That said, he and Prum seemed to have no problem cheering Ribrianne once they were already eliminated so it's possible that the reason he didn't participate earlier was just because he was trying to hide. Even during Universe 2's erasure, he holds his hands in a heart shaped position similar to Ribrianne's
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Harmira only wears a red speedo and boots.

A heavyset fighter who teams up with Harmira.


  • Adaptational Wimp: In the anime, he was a Monster of the Week alongside Hermila who gave Goku and Co some trouble until they figured out their gimmick. However, he gets taken out with little fanfare in the manga by Android 18.
  • Acrofatic: For a guy who looks like a pudgy sumo wrestler around Napapa's weight, this guy has pretty quick reflexes when it comes to dodging Goku's and Vegeta's rocks when he's in a panic.
  • Beam Spam: When Piccolo and Gohan obscure his drones by creating a smokescreen and heating up the rocks so their body heat can't be distinguished, he responds by blanketing the area in beams to obliterate their hiding spot.
  • The Cameo: He appears alongside Kakunsa as an illusion of Universe 4 fighter Shantza in episode 119.
  • Confusion Fu: His drones allow him to attack from nearly any angle while hiding where he's actually shooting from. Furthermore, as he's not the source of the beams, finding him doesn't stop the attacks.
  • Crippling Overspecialization:
    • His drones and Energy Absorption make him a formidable threat, but, as Vegeta notes, he has no apparent means to manipulate ki on his own. When cut off from Harmira, he's pretty much helpless.
    • His ability can reflect ki attacks of any strength with impunity, but only ki attacks. Vegeta figured this out and started lobbing rocks at him; he has absolutely no defense against physical projectiles (or any kind of physical attacks for that matter).
  • Demoted to Extra: In the anime, he had a team-dynamic with Harmira and was considered a threat. In the manga, he is the first fighter to be taken out from Universe 2 by Android 18, taking Jimizu alongside him.
  • Edible Theme Naming: His name is a pun on "rump".
  • Energy Absorption: He can absorb ki and redirect it as he pleases. Furthermore, he can spit out reflective orbs that can perform the same function. Goku and Vegeta get around this by chucking pieces of the stage at him.
  • Loophole Abuse: His Energy Absorption means he can't be hit with ki blasts directly. However, when Dr. Rota shows up to get revenge, Vegeta blasts Rota while Rota is grabbing Prum, and since Rota can't absorb energy, both are sent flying.
  • Non-Action Guy: He has no apparent offensive abilities of his own. When cut off from Harmira and cornered by Vegeta and Goku, he tries to run.
  • Surveillance Drone: He can spit out spheres which act as mobile eyes, letting him see anything they can and see in infrared if the target is obscured by smoke. The spheres also share his powers, so he can bounce the energy he has absorbed off them.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Gives off this vibe as he and Harmira were introduced outlined in shadow when and did not take part in the Ceremony of Love with the rest of the Universe 2 team. That said, he and Harmira seemed to have no problem cheering Ribrianne once they were already eliminated so it's possible that the reason he didn't participate earlier was just because he was trying to hide. Even during Universe 2's erasure, he holds his hands in a heart shaped position similar to Ribrianne's
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: In the manga, he is taken before he could show any attack or personality.

A harpy fighter with the ability to fly. Has a relationship with Sanka Ku.


  • Adapted Out: Appears at the very start of the Tournament of Power in the manga, but isn’t seen in until her elimination was confirmed to be offscreen a few chapters later.
  • Badass Gay: She is one of the most powerful beings in Universe 2, and is in a romantic relationship with Sanka.
  • Battle Couple: Subverted: Bikal saves Kakunsa and launches her at 17, but after that, Bikal goes off to help the others, leaving Kakunsa to deal with 17 herself.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She saves Kakunsa from a ring-out using her ability to fly.
  • Big Damn Kiss: From the angle it's hard to tell, but after rescuing Kakunsa, the two appear to share a kiss.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She looks like a villainous character, with her purple and black attire, bat wings, and pale skin. However, she is actually a real sweetie, being very supportive of her girlfriend.
  • Edible Theme Naming: A pun on "karubi", which are Korean-style marinated barbecued ribs.
  • Flight: Thanks to her wings, she is one of the few fighters that can fly on the Tournament of Power. She, however, suffers the same fate as most of the fliers in the Tournament of Power, with Android 17 eliminating her first, as she kept Kakunsa in the ring the first time he sent her out and he wasn't about to allow a repeat.
  • Harping on About Harpies: Seemingly designed after the harpies.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Has demonic bright purple eyes, but can't turn them off, and show she has a pair of yellow eyes.
  • Nice Girl: While she doesn't look conventionally approachable, she is actually quite supportive of the Maiden Squadron (even in an intense "friendship" with Sanka that is more explicit than Kale's), and determined to save her teammates from falling off the arena.
  • Token Yuri Girls: With Sanka, much to our shock. Played for Laughs, as an over-the-top parody of magical girls romances.
  • Winged Humanoid: In keeping with her harpy design, she has wings which allow her to fly.
  • The Worf Effect: After managing to prevent Sanka from being knocked out by 17, 17 decides to get serious and knocks her out of the arena, with the audience not even getting the chance to see her fight.
