Universe 3 (第3宇宙, Dai-San Uchū) / The Spiritual Universe (精神の宇宙, Seishin no Uchū)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/u3.png

The self-proclaimed universe with the highest intellectual level, Universe 3 is known as the spiritual universe. Is Overseen by the God of Destruction Mosco, the Supreme Kai Ea, and the Angel Camparri. Along Universe 10, they form a twin Universe.

They ranked 7th among the Universes with the highest mortal level, only being behind Universes 2 and 11 in terms of Universes that are forced to participate in the Tournament of Power.

    Universe 3 tropes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2018_03_25_at_111528_am.png
Not Shown: Mosco

  • Beware the Silly Ones: In the earliest stages of the tournament, their only two warriors to receive focus in the preparation episodes are eliminated almost comically easily, followed not terribly long after by the first to have a decent showing against Goku being very easily wiped out by Jiren, and a lot of them have rather funny robot designs or personalities. From there, they have some of the least embarrassing performance as a team than anyone short of U7, very few of them being wiped out from there until they're quite literally in the final three. Of particular note are the components of Koichiarator, all rather cliche-looking robots, as well as Katopesla's tendency (not so much in the manga) to face down opponents significantly out of his league and come out unscathed before falling to a cheap shot.
  • Boring, but Practical: As opposed to Universe 11's bombastic displays of power or the various tricks deployed by Universe 4, universe 3's overall strategy leans on the side of simply outlasting the other universes. Not exactly exciting, but they're comfortably in second place after universe 9, 10, 2, 6, and 4 are erased, so it's an effective move.
  • Butt-Monkey: Universe 9 may be the lowest ranking Universe, but Universe 3 had quite the abysmal performance in the tournament. From having their "Super Survival Mode" easily dispatched to having their strongest fighter easily eliminated, it looked like the beginning of a humiliating defeat for a Universe focused on intellect. However, Maji Kayo was able to give Super Saiyan Goku a hard time, so all of Universe 3 isn't too bad, and the fact that the nine fighters are controlled is something. It should be noted however, that as of episode 112, Universe 3 is technically in the second best position out of all the Universes, due to the fact that they still have 6 members left. By contrast, only Universe 7 has more with 7. So, even though their individual performances have been nothing but lackluster, collectively as a team, Universe 3 is actually doing very well. In fact, they've outlasted four universes, including the formidable Universe 6 and 2. By the end of episode 119 they may have lost one more member but, with Universe 4's erasure and Piccolo's elimination, they are now one of the last three remaining Universes left in the tournament and they still are in second place with 5 members, compared to Universe 7's 6 and Universe 11's 3, and ultimately place third in the entire tournament.
  • Cessation of Existence: Universe 3 is erased at the end of episode 121 in order to make room for the climatic final showdown between Universes 7 and 11. They get wished back in the end though.
  • Combat Pragmatist: First, Viara and Katopesla decide to attack Jiren while he is meditating (it doesn't work). Secondly, Panchia, Bollarator and Koitsukai beat up Goku taking advantage of his weak state after fighting Jiren (it also doesn't work, as Caulifla sends them flying). Apparently, they prefer to go after weakened or distracted opponents, instead of going for an all-out attack (perhaps that explains their survivability).
  • Combining Mecha: Three of their mechanical fighters can combine into a single, larger form, Koichiarator.
  • Crazy-Prepared: As Mosco and Ea formulated a survival strategy for the Tournament, its becomes apparent that they ridiculously wanted to win this thing.
    • Their warriors all have some sort of survival modification, ranging from grappling arms, to propulsion technology, to mechanical wings all in order to avoid ring outs.
    • Several members are intentionally sent to go pick fights with stronger opponents so that their Supreme Kai can "study" them. One of their members has a data scanner for an eye, and several have Nigh-Invulnerability to maintain their position on the stage.
    • After Narirama's job of sweeping the open battlefield clean off the edge is compromised, the remaining warriors go into hiding, and avoid engaging other fighters unless they're vulnerable or distracted in some way. They then stay out of action until several of the competitors are eliminated before engaging the top contender, Universe 7, with coordinated team work.
    • If Universe 7 somehow overpowers their remaining team members, Universe 3 has a counter offensive called "Plan X", where three of their fighters combine into a massive mecha with their combined speed and power to crush their surprised opponents.
    • If said Universe somehow manages to overpower this plan, then Paparoni is prepared to merge himself with his three creations to create their final last stand, Anilaza.
    • If Anilaza was invoked, their ultimate gambit was for Anilaza to destroy the stage altogether, thereby dropping the remaining universes off, while ensuring Anilaza remains by having it sprout wings.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: For a team that lost major core members in embarrassing moments early in the tournament, Team Universe 3 has seemingly outlasted the other major universes thus far. All that survival planning seemed to pay off after all. In fact, they outlast Universes 9, 10, 2, 6, and 4, and for a final showdown, they're quite a tough universe, with all of their remaining members being very formidable. Their strongest members are even strong enough to give the heaviest hitters in Universe 7 trouble, and their last resort Aniliza is strong enough to take on the entire Universe 7 team by himself.
  • Deader Than Dead: They are the sixth universe to be erased in the Tournament of Power. They do get wished back in the end though.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Almost all of the team members are puns on Italian food. The ones that aren't are puns on Japanese slang.
  • Expy: The mecha warriors are not unlike the Sigma Force Machine Mutants from Dragon Ball GT, especially after it's revealed that three (or four, counting Paparoni) of them are Combining Mecha.
  • Foil: With Universe 10, its twin counterpart. Universe 10 is called the Macho Universe, with a team that prefer the brawn and incorporates natural fighters, while Universe 3 is known as the Spiritual Universe, with its members being cyborgs and robots, specifically modified for the Tournament, thus, the Brain. Amusingly, they are also Butt Monkeys during the Tournament of Power, but while Universe 10 was erased early during the Tournament, Universe 3 has survived until the end with most of its fighters. When their last fighter got taken out from the Tournament of Power, the Supreme Kais from both universes heartwarmingly congratulated them on a job well done. Both accepted their fate without freaking out, but Gowasu looked like he was bowing his head in shame, while Ea went out with a smile. Universe 10 was the second team eliminated, while 3 was the second to last.
  • Fusion Dance: Zig-zagged. Despite the Zenos allowing the use of Potara earrings after the birth of Kefla, Ea states it won't be needed. The line is Foreshadowing for the fusion of Panchia, Bollarator, and Koitsukai - and later, with Paparoni to form Anilaza.
    Ea: We do not need the Potara. We hardly need to explain why.
    Mosco: [robotic sounds]
  • For Science!: We have a Mad Scientist, a ton of robots and cyborgs, and a robotic God of Destruction as well, Although it is later revealed that Mosco is actually a small imp like creature inside of a mech.
  • Graceful Loser: In the anime like Universes 2 and 6 before them, they accept their defeat and imminent erasure with the utmost grace and class.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Similar to Universe 6, Universe 3 put in major amounts of preparation in order to win the tournament from building custom designed robot modifications for their fighters to formulating a survival plan in order to get them through the tournament. In the end, naturally powerful and talented fighters such as Goku and Jiren overshadowed them by a longshot despite their best efforts.
  • Killer Robot: Almost the entire team are robotic and modified warriors, reflecting on both Ea's and Mosco's interests.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": In the manga, all of them shit their pants when their ultimate weapon, Anilaza, gets easily taken out by Kale.
  • Out of Focus: Since the erasures of universes 9 and 10, Universe 3 has received the least attention. Universe 11 has Jiren, who is Goku's main rival in the tournament. Universe 6 has received much attention due to already having established characters from the Universe 6 Saga. Universe 2's Ribrianne has been a major character during the tournament. Universe 7 is the universe of the protagonists. Universe 4's Quitela has a rivalry with Beerus, and there was an episode that had Roshi face and defeat three of its members. Universe 9 were the main rivals during the exhibition matches, and Universe 10 got some focus with Obuni and Rubalt. Universe 3 has not received much attention outside of Katopesla, who's become somewhat of a fan favorite for being an Iron Butt Monkey. Their lack of screentime is probably why they haven't lost many members as of the halfway point of the tournament. They finally get two episodes to themselves late in the tournament.
  • People Puppets: It's revealed that the artificial warriors of the ten fighters are controlled by one of the members of the team. This particular fighter is Paparoni, the Mad Scientist of the group.
  • Pet the Dog: While their gods consider Goku to blame for the Tournament of Power, Universe 3 doesn't have any grudge with Universe 7 compared with every other universe sans Universe 6, and never gain any sort of grudge against them. The closest thing they got to a grudge is Katopesla considering Frieza evil, and he can't be blamed.
  • Red Herring: Both Nigrissi and Narirama are hyped up to be the strongest threats of the universe before the tournament starts. Then Narirama turns out to be a weak gimmick fighter who is taken out in the first minutes and Nigrissi, the so-called strongest fighter, is smacked out of the ring in an embarrassing way. Later, another Universe 3 fighter, The Preecho, is also ringed out without even throwing an attack. Because of that, one may think that this universe is another Butt-Monkey like Universe 10 and is going to be erased quickly. A bit later in the tournament, we see more fighters in action, who turn out to be far stronger than the previous three and way more competent at surviving. At the end, Universe 3 manages to outlast five universes and are the last obstacle for Universe 7 before the rematch with Universe 11. It turns out that they weren't as weak as we were thinking from the beginning.
  • Sentai: In the manga, they introduce themselves by pulling out poses very similar to the Ginyu Force. The Pride Troopers on the other hand do this in the anime equivalent.
  • Victory by Endurance: Similarly to Universe 4, they have not won, but have managed to outlive other far stronger universes in the tournament. They have done it by leaving Universe 7 alone, along with their tendencies of getting thrown across the arena, but never ringed out.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Team Universe 3's fighters have been shown to utilize more tactical abilities rather than raw power especially when compared to the other powerhouses in the Tournament of Power. Examples include Narirama's survival modifications, Maji Kayo's liquid body, and Nigrissi's camouflage, all fitting for a Universe based on intellect.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Subverted. Finally, we see a powerful fighter in Universe 3 in Maji Kayo. Said fighter gets eliminated two episodes later without ringing out anyone, pushing the universe back into Butt-Monkey territory again. Then they last into the final three with only one more casualty the very episode before that point.

Deities

    Mosco 

Mosco (モスコ, Mosuko)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img01_1.png
Click here to see his true form, Mule 
Voiced by (Japanese): Daisuke Kishio
Voiced by (English): Chris Cason
Voiced by (Latin American Spanish): Arturo Mercado Jr.

"If we fight well and win... we will all survive."

Mosco is the God of Destruction of Universe 3. Looks like a robot, and communicates through electronic sounds.

He was designed by Toyotarō.


  • 24-Hour Armor: Judging from Camparri's comment about him finally coming out, it seems that Mule spends years, if not decades or centuries operating inside the Mosco robot with him never going out to the point that Camparri is actually surprised at him going out of the armor to bid farewell to his angel.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: While Mosco in the anime doesn't seem to hold a grudge towards Beerus and asked why he is not invited, in the manga, however, Mosco hates Beerus like all the other Gods of Destruction due to the hide-and-seek incident and chose to gang up on him in the Zen Exhibition Match. Also, when the Grand Priest announced the Tournament of Power, he apparently made a rude remark about not having enough time to gather enough warriors for the tournament.
  • All There in the Manual: Toei website describes him as an old model robot, and due to being an old model, he can't properly speak. Is the closest we get to an origin about a God of Destruction, as of this writing. It is later revealed that he's actually a small imp like creature in a mech, meaning that it is his suit that's an old model.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Why does Mosco use a mech suit? Is he actually a weakling who needs the suit to be able to compare to the other Gods of Destruction in power and only got the position because of it? Is he embarrassed about his true form? What power does he have without it? These questions will probably never get answers due to him being erased. The only thing apparent is that Camparri apparently knew that he was an imp who piloted the suit and that he never came out of the suit, as he exclaims "Until he finally came out" when he reveals himself.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Heavily implied. He is an old model robot who was promoted to the job of God of Destruction. It is later revealed that he's an impish creature in a mech, though he could have gotten the position due to the power of the suit.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Named after Moscow mule, a cocktail of vodka and ginger beer served in a metal cup. Specifically, the robot is named Mosco, while the true god is named Mule.
  • Eye Beams: He can launch a powerful beam from his eye, as shown in the manga during the Exhibition matches.
  • Evil Laugh: A variation with beeping sounds.
  • Exact Words: Meta example. His biography in Toei website states he looks like a robot, not that he was one.
  • Expy: Mosco's design appears to be heavily influenced by Machine Mutant Luud from Dragon Ball GT, who was worshiped as a God of Destruction by a cult led by Dolltaki. Luud is basically the original God of Destruction of the franchise. Here is the comparison.
  • Famous Last Words: "Thanks for everything, pal. We're outta here!" His final words to his assistant before his erasure.
  • Genius Bruiser: Mosco has been stated by Toei to have intelligence that surpasses that of all of mankind. Presumably, he built his suit himself, though it's unknown if he has any significant power without it.
  • God Is Good: Unlike the other gods who were lazy or driven by personal squabbles such as revenge, Mosco has one definitive objective in the tournament, which is his universe's survival. Justified in that being a giant robot, calculated logic is the only thing you can go off anyway. Even if he's actually piloting a robot, when he finally came out of it, he did so to thank his angel for all of his support before erasing with a smile on his face.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Mule's last words to his assistant is to thank him with a fearless smile.
  • Humongous Mecha: He is a giant robot that is noticeably bigger than the Supreme Kai and Angel of its universe. Mosco is a homage to Luud, the worshiped God of Destruction in GT before the concept of actual Gods of Destruction were a thing. He is later revealed to be an impish creature in a mech suit.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: When Goku brags to the other Gods in bringing their best fighters against him, Mosco is shown beeping in outrage, in a similar fashion to R2-D2 from Star Wars. This would mean that not only is this the only robotic God of Destruction, but also the only one that can't speak the common language. His Angel has to speak on behalf of him. It is later revealed that he is actually a tiny impish creature in a mech suit, and while the suit can't communicate outside of beeps, he himself can talk just fine. The Toei website states that this is because of being an old model.
  • Mythology Gag: He looks very similar to Luud from Dragon Ball GT. Luud was also called a "God of Destruction".
  • Nerves of Steel: While Camparri and Ea got scared of Narirama suddenly coming to them, they hide behind Mosco, who didn't even react. Just like a robot.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: All Gods of Destruction have this to some extent, but being a metallic robot Mosco takes the cake. Notably, when Ea and Camparri are startled they hide behind Mosco for protection, implying he may actually be more durable than his angel attendant. since he's actually a tiny imp like being in a mech suit, this may only apply to the suit itself and not him.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Even though he could easily speak the common language, Mule seemingly chose to maintain the disguise as a robot by speaking under beeps with Mosco translating for him. When he comes out of the armor to urge the remaining Universe 3 teams to fuse in the manga against Kale, it really shows just desperate he is when it comes to surviving the Saiyan's relentless assault.
  • Pet the Dog: In the anime, he asks why Beerus was not invited to the Gods of Destruction summit preceding the Tournament of Power, despite all of the gods blaming Universe 7 for the tournament and the fact that five of them are going to be erased, and holding Beerus in contempt for this.
  • Smug Smiler: What little can be seen of Mule before his erasure is that he has an defiant smile, even when he's moments away from being erased.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Mosco is actually a tiny imp like being in a mech suit. Possibly subverted in that we don't know if he is powerful without the suit.
  • Unrobotic Reveal: Just before he's erased, Mosco reveals that he's actually a small imp like creature in a mech suit.
  • Visual Pun: Mosco is a robot that appears to have ascended to become a God of Destruction. A god from a machine. For a more literal version of it, Mule is a god of destruction inside a machine. A god inside a machine. A walking Deus Ex Machina.
  • Walking Spoiler: Mosco true identity as Mule is a surprise twist, as you can notice with all the spoilers.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Possibly the strangest example in this franchise, but we never got to know much about Mosco's true identity, Mule, as he is revealed seconds before he is erased by the two Zen'os.

    Camparri 

Camparri (カンパーリ, Kanpaari)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/compari.png
Voiced by (Japanese): Bin Shimada
Voiced by (English): Calvin Scott Roberts
Voiced by (Latin American Spanish): Guillermo Coria

The angel serving Mosco, and acts as his translator.


  • Catchphrase: "Lord Mosco says:..."
  • Edible Theme Naming: Named after a type of aperitif made from infusing herbs and fruit into alcohol.
  • Gag Nose: Has a particularly large one.
  • Not So Above It All: He was at one point startled by Nagrirama and hid behind Mosco.
  • Pet the Dog: Unlike most angels, Camparri expresses genuine frustration whenever Universe 3's wariors perform abysmally (which is often), implying he cares about his universe. In the manga, he also spared Ea and Mosco from Zeno's wrath by falsely translating that Mosco is excited that the Tournament of Power is happening soon (In actuality, Mosco is outraged at the short time frame it takes to gather enough fighters for the tournament, something that Ea thoughtlessly repeated).
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is written as either Camparri, Campari, or Kampari.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: When Katopesla looks like he tripped off the stage on purpose, we get this gem.
    Mosco: [robotic beeps]
    Camparri: Lord Mosco says: WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING!?
  • Sole Survivor: The only individual related to Universe 3 to survive its erasure.
  • Tactful Translation: In the manga, when Mosco complains about the short time frame to collect fighters for the Tournament of Power, Ea thoughtlessly repeats the complaint and earns the ire of the Grand Priest and the Zenos. Kampari is quick to put a more positive spin on it, telling Ea that there are times when lying is better.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: Since Mosco can only communicate through electronic sounds, he has the duty to translate what is he saying. Think of it like this: if Mosco is similar to R2D2, then his assistant would be his C3PO.

    Ea 

Ea (エア,Eyre)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eaa.png
Voiced by (Japanese): Makoto Naruse
Voiced by (English): Alfie Coy
Voiced by (Latin American Spanish): Luis Fernando Orozco

"With all due respect to my brawny colleague from the 2nd Universe, perhaps you are unaware of the superior intellectual prowess of the 3rd Universe?"

The Supreme Kai of Universe 3. Slightly influenced by mortals who like machines.


  • Adjusting Your Glasses: Does this quite a lot, and so far Universe 3 has been playing out for the long game. Naturally, Ea does the adjusting by the bridge variant.
  • Bishōnen: He is quite handsome, having the same set of eyes Gohan has with his glasses on.
  • Can't Live Without You: His life is tied with his God of Destruction, just like most Supreme Kais.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He sends three of Universe 3's robot fighters to gang up on an injured Goku strictly because Universe 7 is in the lead in terms of fighters.
    • Subverted earlier however, when he sent Maji Kayo to subdue Jiren. A fighter like Maji Kayo could have been much more useful if he didn't go up against the strongest fighter in the tournament, and almost immediately get eliminated for his trouble.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Ea makes most of the calls for his fighters, and while most of his calls are calculated, it's the ones that catch him off guard that results in his teams eliminations. For example, he didn't account for Jiren's strength to completely wipe Maji Kayo off the stage, nor did he fully understand that Universe 7's Androids have unlimited stamina compared to Viara's armor.
  • Face Death with Dignity: After the last of his fighters were eliminated, he congratulated Paparoni on his work and a fight well done. Ea got erased with a smile, seemingly unbothered by it, and in fact pleased that his team made it so far, but knowing full well that victory was simply beyond them. At least in the anime ... in the manga, Universe 3 does much worse and he's as shocked as Mule is.
  • Nerd Glasses: One of the things that distinguish him from other Supreme Kais are his red glasses, and he is quite the intellectual guy. They sometimes turn into Scary Shiny Glasses.
  • So Proud of You: When Paparoni asks for forgiveness for getting eliminated, Ea just smiles and tells him he did really well.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": He is either known as Ea or Eyre.
  • The Spock: Considers his Universe to be the "brains", which conflicts with the Supreme Kai of Universe 2. During much of the Tournament, he instructs his fighters to study more about the enemies, even sending Maji Kayo to go where Jiren is, since he is so mysterious.
  • Underestimating Badassery: He constantly boasts about how his universe's intellect and preparation will make them the winners. Several embarrassing eliminations show he probably should have considered some martial arts lessons in those preparations.

Team Universe 3

    Nigrissi 

Nigrissi (ニグリッシ, Nigurisshi)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nigrisshi_render.png
Voiced by (Japanese): Daisuke Kishio
Voiced by (English): Jon Allen
Voiced by (Latin American Spanish): Raymundo Armijo

"Now you have seen the scope of Narirama's Super Survive ability. And the retrofits on our other team members are just as ingenious. There couldn't be a more perfectly suited team. The victory and survival of our universe is inevitable."

The greatest modified warrior of Universe 3, and the one responsible for the majority of the team's modifications. However, he gets knocked out of the tournament by Cabba (in the anime), with absolute zero fanfare.


  • Badass Bookworm: Is described as one of the strongest warriors in his universe, but also seems to be a capable scientist who created the rest of Universe 3's team, and specifically modified them for the Tournament with staying in the ring as a top priority.
  • Butt-Monkey: Despite his hype, we never got to see him actually fight anyone seriously, as he was constantly attacked by the likes of Vegeta and such. Additionally, in the anime, he was the first of Universe 3's warriors to get taken out in the Tournament of Power as well. In the manga, one of the first fighters we see him up against ... is Jiren (who Jiren just casually shoots off, but doesn't knock out. He also outlasts Narirama, Katopesla, and Viara).
  • Can't Catch Up: Nigrissi may have been Universe 3's strongest warrior, but in the 40 hours of preparation prior to the tournament where he modified most of his teammates, he seemingly forgets to upgrade himself. As a result, several of said teammates outperform him in the tournament, and he's the first Universe 3 representative to get ringed out in the anime.
  • Cyborg: He is referred as a modified warrior, and has mechanical equipment as part of his body (thus not breaking the rules of bringing weapons to the Tournament of Power). This makes him similar to Android 17 and 18 in this regard.
  • Didn't Think This Through: As he modified Narirama, he figured that it was going to be unstoppable with its "Super Survival Mode", but Hit and Basil were able to stop it by crushing its arms. Let's just say Nigrissi was disappointed by this.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Of Italian grissini breadsticks.
  • Guttural Growler: In the English dub, Jon Allen gives Nigrissi a really raspy voice.
  • Informed Ability: Aside from his supposed camouflage system, as mentioned below, Nigrissi's status as Universe 3's strongest modified fighter is also this, with Maji Jayo matching a Super Saiyan while Nigrissi was effortlessly beaten by a regular Saiyan. As the tournament continues, we see other fighters aside from Maji Kayo who fare way better than him, such as Bollarator and Viara, who fare way better than him, with Bollarator even giving Gohan a good fight. One wonders how Ea could think that Nigrisshi is so strong.
  • Invisibility: Has a camouflage system, that he attempts to ambush Cabba with, but is effortlessly blown away with a single kick.
  • Machine Monotone: In Japan, Nigrissi speaks with a low monotone voice that echoes through the place.
  • Red Herring: Promoted to be The Ace of Universe 3, even being called "the greatest modified warrior of Universe 3". Come to see that he didn't get any real focus when each of the teams were shown at the Tournament of Power, plus the fact that he was the first member of his universe in the anime to get knocked out, we come to find out that another member who's actually the true mastermind ... Paparoni.
  • Tron Lines: Has purple ones over his body.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He gets knocked out by Cabba without any showing of his power or capabilities whatsoever.
  • The Worf Effect: Vegeta is shown casually beating him up in base form before running off to help Goku. He even gets knocked out by Cabba in base form without much fanfare.
  • World's Strongest Man: Described by Ea as Universe 3's strongest modified warrior, but sadly, he is still not strong enough. Too bad he's the first of Universe 3's (in the anime) reps to get taken out, courtesy of Cabba.

    Narirama 

Narirama (リラーマ, Nariraama)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/narirama_render.png
Voiced by (Japanese): Takeshi Kusao
Voiced by (English): Daman Mills

"Narirama! Narirama!!!"

A super survival specifications modified warrior created by Nigrissi in order to participate in the Tournament of Power, augmented to stay in the ring at all costs.


  • Adaptational Wimp: Thought his anime performance was lackluster? He doesn't even get any feature in the manga at all, getting taken out offscreen the same time as Monna, Krillin, Dr. Rota, and Viara.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Hit amputates his arms and legs, since they're artificial and he is at no risk of dying from the loss.
  • Blow You Away: He has large, vacuum-powered suction cups on his back which are meant to help him cling to the ring, though they can expel air with equal strength.
  • Chest Blaster: He has an energy cannon in his chest as a measure of last resort. It doesn't do him much good, as Hit merely knocks him over so the recoil sends him out of the ring.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Narirama has a thruster to give him aerial maneuverability, iron claws to stake himself to the arena, extendable arms to pull himself back into the ring, suction cups to cling onto the arena in case all the others fail, and a Desperation Attack energy cannon to take someone down with him in case all the other functions have been compromised. And it still wasn't enough.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: With all that survival gear installed in him, it seems no one bothered to actually teach him how to fight. As soon as the surprise of his Tornado Move wears off, he's no match for a competent fighter like Hit.
  • Cyber Cyclops: A single blue optical sensor that lights up.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Of the red marinara sauce.
  • Humongous Mecha: A huge robot fighter specifically created and prepared for the Tournament of Power.
  • Iron Butt-Monkey: Literally one, as although it seemingly had a slight advantage in the first minute of the tournament, Hit and Basil break his arms. Hit then goes the extra mile of dismantling his limbs and other attachments. He tries to do a last resort Chest Blaster attack, but Hit just makes it miss and the recoil throws him out of the ring.
  • Jet Pack: He has a rocket on his back to help him move around, though it's not clear if he can actually fly with it.
  • Machine Monotone: What little he speaks, is with a low machine monotone.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: With all of his gadgets and his tornado move, which is decently powerful, Narirama could probably be a credible threat against ordinary fighters. Sadly, there is nothing that he can do against really experienced and absurdly overpowered rivals.
  • Pokémon Speak: Only speaks his name as he tries to spin through the arena. The only thing he says that isn't his name is to announce that his Chest Blaster has finished charging.
  • Red Herring: Like Nigrissi, was set up as The Ace, only to fall flat after a single opening gambit.
  • Rubber Man: Can extend his arms and legs great distances, both for offense and so he can grapple back into the ring if knocked out.
  • Tornado Move: His signature move is to extend his arms and spin at great speeds, turning him into a deadly top that can swat aside anything in his path. It didn't stop Hit and Basil from breaking his arms during the first minute of the Tournament of Power.
  • Wolverine Claws: His hands have large claws to help him cling to the ring.

"I am Catopesra! Policeman of justice! He who shields the good citizens of Universe 3 from the clutches of evil! In service of those I've sworn to protect, I call on the powers of my super robot suit!"

A police warrior from Universe 3 with power armor. He was considered a key player in the Tournament of Power, despite the fact his performance in the anime was mostly for comic relief. Worse in the manga, where he's the first of Universe 3 to get taken out.


  • Adaptational Wimp: The fact he's an Iron Butt Monkey in the anime helps him outlast several universes until getting taken out by a sneak attack from Gamisaras. In the manga, remove "Iron" and he's just a flat-out Butt-Monkey who's one of the first fighters taken out in the Tournament of Power.
  • Ascended Extra: Became Promoted to Playable in Dragon Ball Heroes, being among the first universe 3 warriors to do so along Aniraza, and considered the champion of Universe 3. Not bad for our popular police Butt-Monkey.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: A human-looking alien of blue skin. His hair is also white, but is unknown if this is because he's old, or just a Hair Color Dissonance like the angels.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Has a P on his chest, which stands for police. He can change into several different forms, changing the letter along with the color of his outfit. When he goes into his speed form, it switches to an S. He changes into a yellow form called his Battle form while fighting Vegeta, with the letter switching to a B. His Ultimate form has a U.
  • Butt-Monkey: He was first blasted aside point blank by Frieza. Then he tried to attack a meditating Jiren only to get knocked back by Jiren's forced field. When he was showing off his suit, he was interrupted by a clashing Goku and Kale. Later he rechallenges Frieza to chase him in speed form, to which Frieza declines with a disturbed tone. Then he's knocked into several boulders by the Android duo, and then knocked out of the tournament by Vegeta (with a little help of Gamisaras). Taken even further in the manga, where he's the first elimination from Universe 3, taken out effortlessly by Vegeta with little more than a word said.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He and Viara attempt to take Jiren out by surprise while he's meditating. Unsurprisingly enough, it doesn't work.
  • Cool Shades: Zeno's GodPad shows that he sports a pair of shades.
  • Demoted to Extra: Gets eliminated far earlier in the manga than the anime with little showing of personality or abilities.
  • Determinator: In the anime, he is definitely this. He has been beaten up quite a bit and it is clearly outmatched by the strongest fighters of the tournament, that doesn't stop him to keep on fighting.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Of the Italian seafood dish pescatora.
  • Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: Every time he changes to a different mode, he explains what it does. When Vegeta attacks him while he is explaining "Ultimate Mode", he complains that Vegeta cheated.
  • Flash Step: His speed mode has demonstrated this several times, first while engaging Frieza (and failing), and secondly to blink behind Android 18 to attack her.
  • Foil: To Top, and to a lesser extent, the rest of the Pride Troopers. The Pride Troopers, despite their hammy personality, are taken seriously during the Tournament, while Katopesla is pretty much a Butt-Monkey. Likewise, the Pride Troopers are a Shout-Out to Super Sentai, while Katopesla is a parody of the original Kamen Rider.
  • Fragile Speedster: Catopesra's speed and agility is pretty impressive when compared to the other fighters, but a singular punch to the gut consistently staggers him. Fortunately for the fans, he's an Iron Butt Monkey, and is always ready to get back up again after his previous beatdown.
  • Finger Gun: His "Final Mission" attack uses this pose. Unfortunately, he does it to Vegeta, who shows him what an attack with "final" in the name is supposed to be like when he unleashes the Final Flash on him.
  • Human Aliens: Under the suit, there is a very earthling looking fellow of blue skin.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: For a guy who's fighting people way out of his league, Katopesla is a persistent and humorous 'opponent' of Frieza, the Androids, and Vegeta. He finally falls victim to Gamisaras of all people. In the manga, [[spoiler:the "iron" part doesn't protect him against Vegeta, as he's Universe 3's first eliminated fighter
  • Interface Spoiler: Zeno's GodPad reveals that he isn't a robot, he's a person with Cool Shades inside. Episode 118 shows his actual face for the first time in battle.
  • Large Ham: The guy speaks almost as grandiose as Toppo when it comes to justice. The amount of over the top poses, gestures, and speeches highlights it even more.
    Catopesra: That's enough Frieza! Unfortunately for you, I've got you in my sights!
    Frieza: Oh, and you are?
    Catopesra: My name is Katopesla! I'm a policeman of justice, protecting the people of Universe 3 from evil! And for those I must protect, I shall unleash the power of my robot suit! MODE CHANGE!
  • Leitmotif: He gains his own heroic-tune that plays when he is having his heroic speeches.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: In the anime, he has had many skirmishes engaging other warriors including Hop from Universe 9, Frieza, the Universe 6 Namekians, Cabba, Dispo and Top, and as of 112, Zarbuto. All of this, and he comes out no worse for wear. For a Universe based on wit rather than strength, this is quite impressive. In the manga, he takes Nigrissi's place as Universe 3's first casualty in the Tournament of Power.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Catopesra's battle armor and abilities are actually rather impressive, what with being able to increase his speed and strength with the form he chooses. In a Kamen Rider series he'd be the Main Character, and if encountered at any other point before Super, would likely be a dangerous foe for any of the heroes to face off against. Unfortunately for him, he's in a Shonen Fighting series and way out of his league by the time of the Tournament of Power.
  • Powered Armor: He uses a robot-battle suit that allows him to fight evenly with some fighters during the Tournament of Power. The suit can change into different modes with the sound of a police siren, changing the color and the letter on his chest.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His Ultimate form is purple. He has another purple form represented by a C, but we never learn what it is.
  • Red Ones Go Faster: In Whirlwind Speed Mode, Katopesla speed increases to become 300x what it was in his normal mode, and his suit turns red.
  • Running on the Spot: Katopesla does this to show off his suits speed mode, gaining speed until he just flashes away. Frieza ignores it.
  • Space Police: He describes himself as a policeman from Universe 3.
  • Stance System: His suit is equipped with a belt that enables him to shift to different forms. He has six known forms:
    • "Whirlwind Speed Mode" where he turns his suit red and increases in speed 300 fold.
    • "Raging Battle Mode" which increases the force of his attacks 300 fold, while turning his suit yellow.
    • "Ultimate Mode", a more powerful purple version of his Battle Mode, which increases not only the force of his attacks 300 fold, but their speed as well, making them harder to block or dodge.
    • And unknown forms represented by a white A, a purple C, and a blue D.
  • Super Cop: He's a police warrior from Universe 3.
  • Superheroes in Space: Toei website states that he's a police warrior who defends for Universe 3 ... he could even be the equivalent of the Galactic Patrol or the Great Saiyaman from there.
  • The Un-Reveal: He's taken out before we can learn what the forms represented by the white A, purple C, and blue D are. And we won't be learning any of him at all in the manga, as he's the first of Universe 3 to get taken out in that adaptation.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Averted, when it seemed that he and Zarbuto were going to get knocked out by Goku and Caulifla powering up (even after showing little action), they ended up just fine. He manages to last a while longer before being knocked out by Vegeta (With help from Gamisaras), during which time he gets a surprising amount of focus. This is played straight in the manga though where he is among the first fighters to be eliminated with no demonstration of skills whatsoever.
  • Would Hit a Girl: The first opponent he fought against in the Tournament of Power was Hop from Universe 9. He also tried to fight against Android 18, but 17 stops him.
    Android 17: I'm not sure about hitting a lady in the face.
    Catopesra: T-there is no mercy on the battlefield.
    Android 17: You're absolutely right. [punches him]

A green-skinned alien with powered armor and mechanical wings.


  • Adaptational Badass: Sort of. He's able to go toe-to-toe with Roasie from Universe 2 and Cabba, but once Cabba decides to help Kale and Caulifla, he just casually knocks him out. His performance is slightly better, but not by much.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Possibly a pun on Capricciosa Pizza.
  • Expy: Visually, he heavily resembles Perfect Cell. Albeit more a primitive looking, patched together Perfect Cell.
  • Recurring Element: He is the second tournament character with some resemblance to Cell in the franchise, after Torbie from the Otherworld Tournament.
  • Powered Armor: Is hard to tell because of his little screentime, but he appears to be a regular inhabitant from Universe 3 using an armor just like Katopesla, meaning he is not a robot.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Taken out in the anime by Roshi's paralyzing Lightning Flash and Tien's Tri-Beam Cannon without ever showing off an attack. In the manga, he's shown fighting against Rozie and Cabba evenly at two separate points. He didn't seem to show any special moves, mostly just standard fighting moves.
  • Winged Humanoid: What little we do see of him, it's shown that those wings on his back do grant him limited flight as proven when he avoided Berserker Kale's meteor attack.

"Such attacks won't work!"

A red-skinned alien with augmented head, torso, shoulder pads, wrists, hands, waist and feet. These modifications made him nearly impervious to damage.


  • Adaptational Wimp: Gets taken out offscreen at the same time as Monna, Narirama, Dr. Rota, and Krillin in the manga. The durable warrior wasn't able to really emphasize much about him. Hell, poor Shantza outlasts him.
  • Ambiguous Robots: Is not exactly clear if he is an alien using an armor like Katopesla, an android or a cyborg. He shows human inteligence compared with Narirama and the robot trio, but it isn't clear.
  • The Brute: In comparison with other U3 mechanical fighters, Viara has zero energy and ki enhancement weaponry, and no gimmicks to back him up. What he does have is massive amounts of defense and power, such as pinning Android 17 against the wall, and tanking massive amounts of ki blasts. Unfortunately for Viara, he overestimated his defensive capabilities, and continuous attacks broke his armor, resulting in his elimination.
  • Didn't See That Coming: His tactic is to wear opponents out with his Nigh-Invulnerability then attack while they're weak. Shame he picked the two contenders that never tire or lose energy.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He and Katpresra attempt to take Jiren out by surprise while he's meditating. Unsurprisingly enough, it doesn't work.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: After ramming Android 17 against a boulder, Viara was on the receiving end of this, and ended the fight knocked out cold in rubble. He does a little better in round two by focusing entirely on defending.
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: Normal fighters would wear down their stamina trying to damage Viara, who would then turn the tables on them. Unfortunately he was fighting the Androids, who have indefinite amounts of energy, and wear him down with continuous energy blasts that eventually crack his armor.
  • Dynamic Entry: When Android 17 tried to act as The Cavalry for 18 who was caught by Ribrianne, Viara pins him into the wall from out of nowhere. Violently.
    • Later does another repeat to engage the Androids by charging through a wall.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Possibly named after spicy arrabiata sauce.
  • Humongous Mecha: A cybernetic warrior that's about as big as Narirama.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: His modifications gave him immense durability, tanking direct hits from both Android 17 and 18 simultaneously with impunity. Later turns into a Not So Invincible After All after his armor breaks from repeated exposure to damage.
  • Pet the Dog: After Katopesla is thrown back by Jiren's barrier, Viara flashes past Dyspo and Toppo to break his fall.
  • Robo Speak: Seems to have a very robotic voice, as if two people were speaking at once.
  • Schmuck Bait: As part of the plan he and Katopesla formulated together, Viara walks out of cover and stands in front of Dyspo and Toppo with absolutely no guard up. The two pride troopers decide to engage him, which leaves Katopesla the window of opportunity to jump Jiren.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After rather humiliating encounter with Toppo, Dyspo, and Jiren, he proceeds to intercept Android 17 when Ribrianne seemingly has Android 18 on the ropes. Android 17 then punches him against the ground, making him look like an easy roadblock. However, when he encountered the Androids again, he was far more brutal and durable this time around.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Viara and Katopesla showed some fine teamwork trying to take down Jiren, before they engaged Toppo and Dyspo. The next time these four characters are seen, Toppo is fighting Vegeta, Dyspo runs from Frieza, Katopesla clashes with Zarbuto, and Viara is nowhere in sight. He reappears to ambush 17, is beat off-screen, but not eliminated.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Viara nearly circle throws Shantsa off the stage until the tiny fighter from Universe 4 flys away.
  • Yin-Yang Clash: Viara is a cybernetic Nigh Invulnerable Stone Wall who faces off against Universe 7's tireless Androids.

A fighter with an unique liquid body that allows him to change his body at will.


  • Blob Monster: A modified fighter who can change his body at will.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Feigns vulnerability before quickly turning the tables against Dispo.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: As part of a Butt-Monkey team, you'd expect him to be some cannon fodder to someone like Ribrianne or Gohan's group. Instead, he is shown giving Super Saiyan Goku a hard time and he can No-Sell most of his attacks. However, when a Disney Death happens to Roshi after seemingly giving the last of his strength to take out Ganos, Goku goes Super Saiyan Blue and frees himself from his clutches. In episode 107 he manages to capture Dyspo and likely would have thrown him out of the ring if not for Jiren's intervention.
  • Expy: Very similar to Majin Buu, being a Blob Monster who can reshape and liquefy his body at will. He's also insanely strong and gave Goku a hard time.
  • Healing Factor: Over the course of his fights, Maji-Kayo's been blown up by ki aura, kicked into a rock, blasted by lasers, kicked THROUGH the same rock, gotten his arm blown off, and ultimately gibbed off the ring by Jiren's shockwave punch. Despite this, he displayed From a Single Cell regeneration, and the later episodes show that he's already back to regular size following his fight with Jiren.
  • Interface Spoiler: Zeno's GodPad shows that he's not really as small as he seems. He can turn into a monster-like form as well.
  • Jobber: Despite his abilities, which had amazing potential when paired with his relative power, his purpose was to be an inconvenience when the plot needed him to be, and to cement Jiren as a powerhouse.
  • No-Sell: A liquid fighter like himself is invulnerable to many punches, as he'll just slime himself away. This gives Super Saiyan Goku some trouble. Likewise, he is able to withstand a being hit by Dispo's attacks and is even able to capture him when Dispo attempts to kick him.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Yet another example of a great fighter that falls behind extremely powerful ones. Maji-Kayo is way, way stronger than Nigrissi and Narirama and is above a lot of fighters in the tournament. He forces Goku, who is extremely powerful even in base form, to go Super Saiyan Blue to get rid of him and later restrains Dispo, a fighter who gave Hit trouble, with him being completely defenseless against the liquid fighter' s clutches (heck, Maji Kayo could have ringed him out were not for Jiren interrupting him). In fact, Maji-Kayo would probably have been able to knock out a lot of more average, less godlike fighters by himself, but had the bad luck of having a brush with the powerhouses of the tournament.
  • Punny Name: His name is a pun on "Majikayo" (マジかよ(?)), "Seriously!?" in Japanese. This is what he says after being defeated by Jiren.
  • Sadist: When he has Dispo trapped Maji-Kayo mentions that he would probably be able to run faster if he didn't have such large ears weighing him down. He then transforms his hands into scissors in order to cut said ears off. Fortunately, he's stopped from doing anything thanks to Jiren's intervention.
  • World's Strongest Man: While Nigrissi is officially Universe 3's strongest modified fighter, Maji-Kayo quite frankly has the best solo performance of all Universe 3 fighters shown. And that's not even outside of the fact that both are controlled. Too bad beings like Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Jiren are leagues powerful than he is.

"Let them feel the fruits of my technology!"

A scientist from Universe 3 and the team leader of Team Universe 3. Considered a key player for Universe 3, and for very good reasons as well.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: A human-looking alien of purple skin.
  • Badass Bookworm: Dr. Paparoni personally created the Koichiarator trio, and planned two different merging techniques in case of emergencies. Besides this, he also managed to fight Rabanra and Zirloin from Universe 2, and briefly attacked Android 18.
  • Badass Normal: Despite the fact that Paparoni doesn’t have nearly as much fighting skill as nearly everyone else in the tournament, he is able to survive until nearly the end of the tournament by avoiding conflict until there is no option left for Universe 3 other than to fight.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Though he did have an unusually prominent spot in the roster compared to the supposed main draws of U3, until around the time where he became relevant he was largely a background character before ultimately becoming the final opponent faced before it was all down to the climatic fight between U7 and U11, as well as the true mastermind of the group.
  • Determinator: Facing the threat of being eliminated as well as him and everyone in his universe being erased, Paparoni instead opts to use a Dangerous Forbidden Technique to merge with Koichiarator and become Anilaza, despite acknowledging that doing so might end up costing him his life.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Paparoni is named after pepperoni, a variety of Italian sausage that is a popular pizza topping.
  • Funny Afro: He sports a fro hawk.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's a Mad Scientist who controls the other artificial warriors on his team through his cane, and likely was responsible for creating/modifying all of them in the first place. He's also powerful enough to fight alongside them as one of the 10 warriors representing his universe.
  • High-Class Glass: Wears a monocle that helps give him both class, and reinforce his Mad Scientist design.
  • Large Ham: When Gohan is fighting the Koichiarator trio, Paparoni is seen to be shouting loud commentary wildly in the background, not to mention really big poses while twirling his cane. He also does a really loud speech to "inspire" his robot teammates before siccing them against Universe 7.
  • Last Stand: As of episode 120's conclusion, he and three of his robots are all that's left keeping Universe 3's hopes for survival alive; unfortunately for them they're all battle weary and facing off against our main protagonists, who are in much better shape and have superior numbers. Paparoni sees no choice but to pull Universe 3's trump card, which may cost him his life.
  • Mad Scientist: He gives off this vibe, with his monocle and being on a team with robotic enhanced fighters and modified warriors.
  • The Man Behind the Man: It's revealed in supplemental material that he's controlling all of the artificial fighters on the Universe 3 team, and is an important member of their most powerful technique: Anilaza.
  • Off-Model: Like Ganos, his Pointy Ears are missing in, egregiously, his first appereance and the Haruka ending.
  • Out of Focus: Though this applies to most of Universe 3, it especially applies more to him than anyone else. Despite easily being Universe 3's most important fighter, he himself has only really made 3 appearances since his introduction and was last seen watching Goku's battle with Jiren. He, however, later becomes the main antagonist in the Universe 3 episodes, as he controls their Last Stand.
  • Puppet Master: He controls the artificial fighters for Universe 3's team.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Among the most Earthling-looking fighters for the Tournament of Power besides his purple skin tone and Pointy Ears.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: The man with the fanciest clothes in all of the Tournament of Power. In fact, he is the one who looks least like a fighter among everyone in the Tournament, including the Maiden Squadron, who are Magical Girls. This doesn't stop him from fighting in hand-to-hand combat against Rabanra.
  • Simple Staff: Weapons aren't allowed in the tournament, yet he is allowed to all a rod around. That said, he doesn't actually hit anyone with it, making it's presence more of a hindrance, or a crutch, than an advantage.

"Take this! Beam, bolla!"

One of Dr. Paparoni's creations, and the forefront member of the Koichiarator trio.


  • Beam Spam: Forces Gohan on the defensive by firing out lasers. He later does a rapid fire version on both Goku and Vegeta
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: Forming one with Koitsukai and Panchia, Bollarator's the thin one, essentially being a disc with eyes and legs. Fittingly, Bollarator has gotten more screen time than his two comrades, and seems to lead their attacks.
  • Combining Mecha: Forms the lower torso and legs of Koichiarator after his fusion with Koitsukai and Panchia.
  • Diving Kick: Performs this on Goku after he dodges Koitsukai's claw arm, which knocks him cleanly into the rocky terrain.
  • Determinator: Averted. After Gohan hides behind a rock, it just assumes that Gohan disappeared and proceeds to find its next opponent.
  • The Dragon: Shows hints of this to Dr. Paparoni. Not only does Bollarator act as the trio's heavy hitter, he was also the first to respond to Paparoni's recall signal. Not to mention how he was the second to last member to be eliminated, besides Paparoni himself.
  • Extendable Arms: Bollarator's wrecking ball arms can be extended to phenomenal lengths to pulverize terrain and opponents alike. Unfortunately, Gohan uses this against it by grabbing a arm and swinging it around before tossing the flying Bollarator into a wall.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Can fire laser beams from its eyes.
  • Helium Speech: Despite its bulky appearance, Bollarator has the most high pitched voice out of Universe 3, and almost the entire tournament.
  • Humongous Mecha: The largest of the Koichiarator trio, and towers over the average fighters. And it still isn't the largest one in the team.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While Bollarator himself isn't an example like you normally would expect, his clash with Gohan signified the turn of the Tournament where the majority of weaker fighters had been knocked off and eliminated already, leaving only the more battle-hardened and tougher opponents on the stage. The later episodes had more drawn out fights and higher stakes, especially when compared to the utter chaos in the beginning.
  • Overly Long Scream: When Caulifla blasts Bollarator away, he performs this trope to humorous effect.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The only mechanically modified fighter in Universe 3 to have red eyes, and was powerful enough to force Gohan on the defensive. These same eyes are later displayed to be able to rapid fire red laser beams.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: Bollarators eyes are very expressive, showing anger, pain, and disappointment. Even the sentence tone changes depending on what its doing! That said, it has ki like the other universe 3 fighters, so there likely is some biological material in it somewhere.
  • Verbal Tic: Habitually ends its sentences with, "Bolla!"

"Analyzing enemy strength. Target approaching."

One of Dr. Paparoni's creations. The second member of the Koichiarator trio.


  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Koitsukai analyzes the other fighters then relays this data to Bollarator and Panchia, allowing them to counter their opponents more effectively.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: Forming one with Bollarator and Panchia, Koitsukai is the short one, having massive mechanized hands nearly as large as his main body. Also acts as The Smart Guy for the group.
  • Combination Attack: While this goes for the trio as a whole, special notice goes to Koitsukai who acts as the coordinator of the group. It is through its observation and scanning that its two comrades can launch their devastating duo attacks.
  • Combining Mecha: Koitsukai acts as the arms and head of Koichiarator following his fusion with Bollarator and Panchia.
  • Cyber Cyclops: Similar to Narirama, but with a green eye instead of a blue one. Doubles as a scanner and energy cannon.
  • Enemy Scan: His job is to observe opponents and relay their movement patterns to Bollarator and Panchia.
  • Expy: Has been compared to Giru from Dragon Ball GT.
  • Extendable Arms: Can extend its arms to attack, similarly to Narirama and Bollarator.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Can fire a powerful green concentrated beam from its eye.
  • Jet Pack: Has two jets on its back to propel it through the air.
  • Humongous Mecha: Averted, looks like one depending on its depiction.
  • Power Fists: Massive claw arms that are larger than Goku. Later becomes the main weapons of Koichiarator, and they're big enough to briefly hold back Ultimate Gohan's Kamehameha.
  • The Stoic: Koitsukai never changes his tone in comparison to his two other colleagues. After getting jumped and blasted by a Kamehameha, he just got back up and went back to analyzing.
  • Your Size May Vary: Has either been depicted as a giant robot bigger than Narirama, shorter than Paparoni, or about the same size as Cabba.
  • Verbal Tic: Yells out "kai!" after firing his lasers.

"Roger, chia."

One of Dr. Paparoni's creations. The third member of the Koichiarator trio.


  • Acrofatic: More bulky than "fat" per say but without a doubt the largest one on the team. Still fast enough to flashstep and was one of the last two flyers left on the stage.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: As part of the Bollarator and Koitsukai trio, Panchia acts as the big one, with a massive body and head, but small legs and arms. Fittingly, Panchia acts as the muscle.
  • Combining Mecha: Forms the main torso of Koichiarator with Bollarator and Koitsukai, and acts as the centerpiece for them to latch onto.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Name is relatively close to the Italian meat pancetta.
  • Eye Beams: Panchia can either choose to rapid fire orange energy beams into a Beam Spam, or choose to fire more concentrated ones for more power.
  • Flight: Possesses the ability to fly around in the arena. He later weaponizes this to ram fighters.
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: Rams into Goku with enough speed to break into a wall, and does it later again while flying.
  • Green and Mean: Looks rather intimating for a robotic modified fighter, especially when Grand Priest gives a rundown on the universes' remaining fighters. And proves the mean part by tackling people with jet propulsion.
  • Humongous Mecha: Averted. Although he looks extremely big when they're introducing the fighters for the universes and such, he's actually not that big. When Ribrianne from Universe 2 is using her Love attack throughout the arena, he's shown to be about half the size as Botamo, and when he's shown fighting with Monna from Universe 4, he's shown to be slightly shorter than her (who can even grow big herself. His showdown against Universe 7 finally concludes that he is gigantic, towering over the humanoid fighters.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: The two hatches in his body can fire massive amounts of homing explosives.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Similar to Bollarator, Panchia displays surprise to being ambushed, fury when fighting, and disappointment upon losing. As said on that entry, the possession of ki suggest there is something biological somewhere in it.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Has really small legs compared to his huge body.
  • Use Your Head: When the Universe 3 fighters attack Goku, Panchia does a mid-air headbutt to knock Goku back into the ground.
  • Your Size May Vary: When we first see him, he looks like he's even bigger than Narirama and other Universe 3 fighters. He's also shown to be quite gigantic during the Grand Priest's rundown on remaining fighters and when Paparoni and a bunch of robotic fighters attempt to fight Jiren, but during shots, he's shown to be roughly half the size of Botamo and slightly shorter than Monna.
  • Verbal Tic: Ends his sentences with "chia!" when he isn't doing Pokémon Speak.

"Koitsukai! Panchia! Bollarator! Merge!!!"

The fusion of Bollarator, Koitsukai, and Panchia.


  • Adapted Out: Paparoni and the three robots fuse straight to Anilaza to deal with Berserker Kale in the manga, skipping Koichiarator entirely.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Averted, Koitsukai being the brains of the trio, appears to have taken over control of three, and really only uses eye beams and his massive claws to fight Universe 7. Bollarator's arms and lasers, and Panchia's missiles have yet to be used post merge.
  • Combining Mecha: The combination of Bollarator, Koitsukai, and Panchia.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: For U3 itself, if not the tourney at large. Paparoni lasts one more episode to keep the Last Stand going harder than any of them.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Inherited Koitsukai's green beam, which as strong enough to push against two super saiyan blues.
  • Ki Manipulation: The three most mechanical members of the largely mechanical team combine in an incredibly mechanical way, and their opponents mention their ki increasing, providing the only hint that they are not purely mechanical.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Despite being a towering machine, he can move fast enough to Flash Step, is incredibly durable, and hits in the same league as Ultimate Gohan as well as stalemate a Beam-O-War with Goku and Vegeta in their Blue forms at the same time.
    Paparoni: Fool! Koichiarator isn't just big. His speed has also increased!
  • Humongous Mecha: Combine the three largest members of the team into one unit, and it still isn't the biggest fighter Universe 3 has to offer. That honor goes to Aniraza.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Averted, despite having a total of 6 arms thanks to their fusion, Koichiarator only uses Koitsukai's Power Fists, implying that Panchia and Bollarator are deactivated and distributing their energy to the robot as a whole.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: His durability is so much so that he was able to catch and hold back a fully charged Kamehameha from Ultimate Gohan for a fair bit of time with his bare hands. Even after taking it, it gets right back up and isn't even heavily damaged.
  • Super Mode: For reference Bollarator, Koitsukai, Panchia, were all incredibly powerful opponents who utilized teamwork and combined attacks to overwhelm enemies. By fusing them into one fighter, their combined power total is maximized at 1256 percent.
  • Voice of the Legion: All three speak in unison as Koichiarator, but their actual speaking voice gets toned down and transition into loud roars during the fight's climax.

"I was hoping I could avoid this... but you leave me no choice. I'm going to knock every last one of you out of the tournement, even if it costs me my life! You're about to face the ultimate secret technique of the 3rd Universe, from which there is no escape!"
Paparoni

The fusion of Paparoni and Koichiarator.


  • Adaptational Wimp: The same Agnilasa that had an advantage over Goku (exhausted), Gohan, Frieza, Vegeta, 17, and 18 is different than the one in the manga. Agnilasa gets EASILY wiped out by Berserker Kale.
  • Ambiguous Robots: It is never stated what Agnilasa is, but since he's the fusion between robots and an organic individual, it's implied he is a bio-mechanical individual.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The red orb on his head is his reactor. When 17 damages it, having deduced its likely importance, he's unable to hold up his Beam-O-War against Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, and Frieza (though not for lack of trying).
  • Beam Spam: It's easier to list the number of places he can't shoot beams from. Even his energy blasts can split into smaller ones that bombard the area, attacking Frieza and the Universe 11 fighters who weren't involved in Anilaza fight.
    Dispo: Does that monster intend to take us on, too?
  • Breath Weapon: Can fire red lasers from his mouth.
  • Climax Boss: Serves as the final opponent that Universe 7 has to face in the anime note  before the rematch against Dyspo, Toppo, and Jiren, the Final Boss of the Tournament of Power for the characters. That being said, he is very formidable and even requires cooperation from Frieza, who for the most part usually just spectates and sneaks in whenever he wants to toy with his opponents. It's all but stated that he may be one the of most powerful opponents in the entire Tournament itself; only Jiren, Ultra Instinct Goku, SSBE Vegeta, God of Destruction Top, and likely Kefla are more powerful than Agnilasa.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Downplayed, but present in the anime. In addition to the usual ki blast varieties, Agnilasa has the power to warp space, use a kind of echolocation with his sensors, and generate a physical pair of wings. Lampshaded by Goku after doing the latter:
    Goku: Man, is there anything this guy can't do?
  • Composite Character: Although mainly a canon Expy based on Hatchiyack, he also draws elements from Hirudegarn and Janemba.
  • Confusion Fu: In part because he never announces what he's doing, he repeatedly catches the heroes (and Frieza) off guard by switching strategies suddenly and revealing new techniques with no warning.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: For an unknown reason, Paparoni seemed very reluctant to ever use Agnilasa, despite the fact that he and all the other members of Universe 3 have consistently shown that they are all Combat Pragmatists. He also suggests that using it might cost him his life, although ultimately nothing ever comes of it, as the fusion is broken without issue with Paparoni unharmed.
  • Edible Theme Naming: To keep in with the theme of most of Universe 3's warriors being named after Italian food, Agnilasa's is a play on the word "lasagna". In fact, it's even made from other warriors, therefore layers.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Like Fused Zamasu and Jiren before him, Agnilasa appeared in Dragon Ball Heroes a few days before his official appearance in the anime.
  • Expy: Of several Non-Serial Movie villains, but most prominently by far of Hatchiyak. Aside from obvious design similarities, he is also an artificial life form that doesn't speak in full sentences. In fact, he even almost gets taken out the same way Hatchiyak was actually beaten, with five opponents all attacking him at once. He also draws elements from Hirudegarn (his facial structure, size, and ability to grow wings) and his ability to create portals and his overall tricky fighting style draws parallels to Janemba.
  • Fusion Dance: A fusion of three robotic warriors and a scientist.
  • Godzilla Threshold
    • Forming him was an absolute last resort and Paparoni was very hesitant to do so, only going through with it after the Combining Mecha formed from his three robot allies proved insufficient to win. Paparoni even implies he himself might not survive forming Agnilasa.
    • Previously Paparoni had been ready to form it against Jiren after Goku's apparent death, but Goku returning to the battle prompted him to save Anilaza for another occasion.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He is the result of Doctor Paparoni (an organic individual) merging with his machines, and the combination involves a slight Body Horror and the possibility of Paparoni losing his life by doing so. A fair amount of people react to him with terror at first, calling him a monster.
    Beerus: What is that monstrosity?!
  • Humongous Mecha: He is gigantic, towering over everyone by a long shot.
  • Inexplicably Awesome: Essentially runs on this. Agnilasa is the fusion of Koichirator (a merged robot), who while fairly strong was beaten by Gohan on his own once he'd charged up enough, and Paparoni (an individual made of flesh), who could fight a bit but was obviously more a support character. Putting them together creates a massive monster capable of fighting, and beating everyone still present in Universe 7, and whose power was said to warp space itself. Despite all of this, nothing about Agnilasa's fusion is really explained, or what about it makes him that much more powerful than his components.
  • The Juggernaut:
    • In the anime, nothing Universe 7 did could slow it down for long. Straight on brawl? Agnilasa overpowered them with more speed and power. Simultaneous attacks? Agnilasa's detection capabilities countered them. Everyone focus firing it with ki blasts? Agnilasa has even more Beam Spam to counter with. Everyone dodging it from a safe distance? It used portals to strike them from a distance. It took Android 17's gambit of running through the being's deathball to damage it's Achilles' Heel before it could overpower Universe 7's Beam-O-War.
    • However, it's subverted in the manga. Similarly set-up as an imposing last weapon, Agnilasa is formed to combat the rampaging Kale. Their fight hardly lasts a minute as Kale simply launches a hard gut-kick to the combiner, and in a comedic fashion, Agnilasa stumbles backward out of the stage.
  • Last Stand: Universe 3's last opportunity for survival, and surprisingly one of the most effective fighters in the Tournament of Power.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He is fast, REALLY fast. When Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, 17 and 18 all rush him from different sides, Agnilasa knocks all of them down.
  • Mythology Gag: Agnilasa is a walking example of this. Pretty much every aspect of him is a throw-back to one of the series' Non-Serial Movie villains in some way.
    • His overall appearance is that of Hatchiyak, and in terms of personality is also a giant artificial being who speaks only in small grunts and roars. The fact it took five people attacking at once to beat him also was how the heroes beat Hatchiyak.
    • His powers are that of Janemba, being that he took is able to punch his foes by having them warp through reality to hit from portals.
    • The way he is created involves the leader of a group of robotic beings merging together with his cohorts to create a more powerful version, the same way Super Android 13 was formed. Like Super Android 13, he was The Juggernaut who took on an extremely powerful group of people at once with no difficulty.
    • Grows wings like Hirudegarn, in addition to having a similar design, and also frequently uses a mouth beam as his primary weapon.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Agnilasa was created for one purpose: to win the Tournament of Power, and he pulls out every stop he can to make that happen. The minute he first appears, he immediately goes on the offensive and overwhelms Universe 7 with his speed and power and constantly adapts to their strategies to throw them off balance, such as using his Super Senses to defend against their simultaneous attacks and attempting to eat the team members when it becomes clear that simple ring-outs won't work. And when all of that fails? He simply takes to the air and attempts to nuke the entire arena to ring out both Universe 7 and Universe 11. Had 17 not been able to damage his Achilles' Heel, Universe 3 might have won the tournament.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Despite the creature’s lower intelligence compared to it’s fusees, it is at the very least heavily implied Agnilasa is deliberately playing this up to let Universe 7 team’s guard down before revealing his cunning tactical acumen when they gain some ground.
  • Reality Is Out to Lunch: He punches so hard that he actually breaks space, causing ruptures in the form of portals which he can aim his fist through to punch at opponents from a range.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Despite never speaking and seeming to be a berserker at times, Agnilasa shows a surprising ability to adapt to the strategies of opponents, switching up attacks several times to throw them off.
  • Smug Smiler: Frequently flashes a Psychotic Smirk or a Slasher Smile.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": It's either Agnilasa, Anilaza or Aniraza, the former being a little closer to its original pun of "lasagna".
  • The Speechless: Never says a word save for the occasional Evil Laugh and mainly growls and roars.
  • Swallowed Whole: He attempts to do this to the Universe 7 fighters when it becomes clear they'll rescue each other from potential ring-outs, but he abandons the strategy when Goku teleports 18 away from his first attempt.
  • Taking You with Me: Attempts to destroy the entire stage with a giant deathball that would ring out both Universe 7 and 11. Thanks to 17, it doesn't work.
  • Thinking Up Portals: Like Janemba, he's able to generate portals and punch through them, allowing him to attack from any angle he pleases. He nearly rings out Goku with this method.
  • Winged Humanoid: He sprouts wings to fly above the arena before unleashing an attack intended to destroy the entire stage.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Agnilasa is a being of violence and destruction, and kept none of the personality traits from his fusees, such as Paparoni's Large Ham or the robots' logical thinking.
  • World's Strongest Man: Is without a doubt the strongest mortal member of Universe 3, and powerful enough to take on all of Universe 7's remaining members by himself.
