Universe 6 (第6宇宙, Dai roku Uchū) / The Universe of Challengers (挑戦の宇宙, Chōsen no Uchū)
Universe 6 is the twin universe of Universe 7, being the home of alternate counterparts to the Saiyans and Frieza's race, with them being more heroic than their counterparts. The Saiyans are a race of heroes, and the universe emperor, Frost, is a noble hero beloved by many of its residents. It is also known as The Universe of Challengers.
This universe is under the supervision of the God of Destruction Champa, who appropriately enough, is Beerus' twin brother.
On the multiverse scale, Universe 6 ranked 10th in mortal level quality, being the third worst.note In the anime, they had the second-most eliminations in the tournament, with Universe 7 being #1. In the manga, they scored the most eliminations by a very long shot.
This universe provides the following tropes:
- Cessation of Existence: The fourth universe to be erasednote , as of episode 118. It's undone in episode 131.
- Death by Irony: Out of all the Universes eliminated from the Tournament of Power, Universe 6 may be the most ironic way of getting erased. The universe was the last universe to lose their first fighter, which was in the same episode that Universe 10 got erased. After Frost's defeat and erasure, the numbers kept dropping like flies, with them getting eliminated at the exact same moment as Universe 2. To cap it off, most of their fighters in the Tournament of Power are eliminated by fighters from Universe 7, their counterpart universe, the only exception being Hit, who was eliminated by Jiren from Universe 11.
- Earth That Was: Earth was rendered lifeless by pointless wars between humans. It was returned to life thanks to Super Shenron.
- Face Death with Dignity: When they're erased, Fuwa handles it well, with Hit remaining fully composed, Cabba bidding Vegeta good luck and Caulifla and Kale engaging in a playful 'attack' on the Namekians who accept their fate as well. Even Champa remains fully composed, giving his brother a final playfully rude gesture in a way that seems oddly affectionate for him.
- Fatal Flaw: In the Tournament of Power, despite being the last universe to lose a fighter in the Tournament of Power, they also lost fighters at an extraordinarily fast rate, especially after Frost/Magetta. The big reason to this was overconfidence.
- Botamo was confident that he was unbeatable with Magetta, which quickly got offed by Kale. Then when he was up against Gohan, he didn't expect Gohan to fire out a Kamehameha from underneath and blast him out so easily.
- Dr. Rota was confident in his "abilities" that he made a huge speech about it, leaving himself open to Hermila/Prum and Vegeta. We didn't even see such skills due to it.
- Magetta was confident blocking out his weaknesses to insults through covering his ears (first through Botamo and second through rocks) that he didn't expect someone to blast rocks and insult him, incapacitating him.
- Frost was overconfident that Frieza was betraying Universe 7, that he couldn't see that it was an act to trick him. It pissed him enough to try to attack him after getting taken out, causing him an early erasure from the Tournament of Power.
- Hit was confident that he could hold Jiren in a time cage for 25 minutes. Even if Hit was able to hold Jiren in successfully, he'd be left open to other foes, like Dyspo.
- Cabba stood out from the team, only after Frieza torturing him after defeating Monna.
- Caulifla was extremely overconfident in her abilities, feeling that she was more powerful than the other Saiyans from Universe 7. She even underestimated the Pride Troopers thinking they were "wimps".
- Kale wasn't confident in her abilities until she became a Super Saiyan, and Kale's Berserker Form was extremely careless.
- Kefla had Caulifla's overconfidence, so the newfound power made her consider herself the most powerful being in the multiverse. Considering that Ultra Instinct Goku defeated her, it could mean that someone like Jiren could've taken her out easily as well.
- The Namekians from Universe 6 seem to be confident that they can take out all of Universe 7's fighters after they are the remaining two fighters left from their universe. They intentionally stayed in the shadows to fully synchronize their fusions, but because of this they were unable to help their teammates until the burden of winning was left solely to them. Finally, despite their teamwork with each other and quite literally their planet Namek, underestimating Piccolo, a fellow Namekian, proved their downfall.
- The Friends Who Never Hang: The original five members of the Universe 6 team are shown to be really cooperative when it comes to fighting, but are never shown to be friends. Justified, as is implied they first met during the Universe 7 vs. Universe 6 Tournament. While Botamo and Magetta are Those Two Guys, Cabba and Hit never really interact with them or each other. Frost, ironically, is the one who interacts with everyone sans Botamo.
- The Gods Must Be Lazy: The gods of Universe 6 somehow manage to take this trope further, because both the God of Destruction and Supreme Kai are lazy. Despite this, however, they are shown to be better than Universe 7 and 9 gods, but not by much.
- Good Counterpart: Universe 6 Saiyan are not a race of Space Pirates who commit genocide for fun, but a race of heroic mercenaries who fight for justice. The Emperor of the Universe, Frost, is also not an evil bastard like Frieza. At least in the manga: in the anime, Frost is A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing Villain with Good Publicity, while Frieza is a Card-Carrying Villain.
- Hard Work Hardly Works: Barring Universe 3, Universe 6 clearly put the most amount of effort in preparation in the tournament. They deliberately designed tactics around countering their weaknesses such as pairing Botamo and Magetta together, and planned for a potara fusion as their trump card. They brought a criminalized Frost back by acknowledging his slipperiness and cunning, and even their Namekians were worked around a survival strategy by avoiding fights until the very end where their fusion powers could stabilize. Despite all this, they still were the 4th Universe to go out, and most of their members were eliminated by Universe 7.
- Humongous Mecha: The Metalmen, a race of giant robot-like beings. According to the Supreme Kai, they should also exist in Universe 7.
- Mirror Universe: Universe 6 is a twin Universe, where things went a little off: In the 6th Universe, the Saiyans are a peaceful race of selfless heroes, who stopped having tails long ago and never heard of the Super Saiyan transformation, while Frieza's counterpart is a planet-trading pirate, except that he puts on a friendly face to the public and is known as a great hero. On the other hand, 6th Universe humanity was apparently so warlike that they annihilated Earth long ago. Its God of Destruction, Champa, is a vulgar brute with an even shorter-temper than his jovial-and-polite twin brother Beerus, but just like him is pampered/mothered/kept-in-check by his more mature and powerful Butler/Minder Angel, whom in this case is Whis' big sister Vados, whom essentially is a Gender Flipped version of Whis.
- Trauma Conga Line: U6 started out being one of the strongest of the tournament and it was the last universe who lost its first warrior. After that, they remained U7 equals, with U6 losing Magetta and Dr Rota and U7 losing Tien and Master Roshi in the same episodes. Later, Frieza ringed Frost out and that marked the point where U6 started to lose fighters like flies, with Jiren eliminating its best warrior and one of the best tournament fighters, Hit. A few episodes later, Frieza eliminates Cabba, leaving only Caulifla, Kale and the Namekians in the ring. The two Saiyan girls decide to fuse and form an extremely powerful fighter...who is defeated by Ultra Instinct Goku. Finally, Saonel and Pilina are defeated by Piccolo and Gohan, bringing about the end of Universe 6.
- Two Girls to a Team: Caulifla and Kale are the only female members of Team U6 in the Tournament of Power.
- Underestimating Badassery: Though Universe 6 undeniably has some very strong fighters, in the Tournament of Power, many of them so far have been eliminated in part due to underestimating whoever they are fighting. Botamo was eliminated by Gohan when he thought Gohan's punches were useless, Frost underestimated both Roshi's determination and Frieza's cunning, Cabba really badly underestimated Frieza's strength, Kefla underestimated just how strong Ultra Instinct Goku was, and Saonel and Pilina underestimated Gohan and Piccolo's own teamwork. Even Hit to some degree underestimated just how strong Jiren is when he thought he could hold him still for the rest of the Tournament of Power. As a result of this hubris, Universe 6 is the fourth universe to be erased.
Champa (シャンパ, Shanpa)
Beerus' twin brother and the God of Destruction of the Sixth Universe. He seeks the seven Super Dragon Balls for an unknown purpose.
- The Ace: A requirement to be appointed the God of Destruction. He officially holds the title as the strongest in Universe 6 and is Beerus' equal, although he could be little weaker given his girth. Even so, he could still destroy the universe if he desired so.
- Acrofatic: During his fight against Beerus in the baseball filler episode, he demonstrates surprising flexibility with high kicks and incredibly fast blows that tear the stadium apart. Of course, it makes perfect sense since he is a God of Destruction.
- Adaptational Jerkass: He is much more of a Jerkass God in the Super manga compared to the anime. He is also generally more polite to Goku and Vegeta in the anime. Episode 34 shows that he's pissed when someone as evil as Frost is fighting on his team after his true personality is revealed, despite his instructions to Vados to search for the strongest warriors in Universe 6 (not the strongest warriors with moral compasses), and was about to wipe him out until Vegeta intervened.
- Adaptational Nice Guy: In the anime, he planned on killing all of the Universe 6 fighters for losing and disgracing his universe. In the manga, he's only angry with Hit (and it's unknown if he even planned on killing him) and it's because Hit threw the match on purpose against Monaka.
- Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better: Pretty much his main motivation when it comes to Beerus. He wants to prove he's better than him.
- Ax-Crazy: It takes a fair degree of pushing his buttons to bring it out, but he also starts sharing his brother's psychosis when his team loses. He was about to kill his entire team in a rage until Zeno shows up.
- Arch-Enemy: Champa and Beerus view each other as this, although in a somewhat friendly way since any real fighting between them can destroy their universes. Beerus also does care for his brother since he restores U6's Earth and advances the civilization to U7's Earth's standards so Champa can eat the food there.
- In reality it's more of a Sitcom Arch-Nemesis relationship and their last interaction before Zeno erases him is one of the most depressing points in Super.
- Arc Villain: The saga encompassing the tournament against U6 and U7 is called the Champa Saga, as the tournament was his idea. Although, Champa is never fought directly by anyone but Beerus, and that was only for a few seconds before Whis and Vados stopped them.
- Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Zig-zagged a bit. In episode 118, just before Universe 6 is erased, Champa seems like he's going to say goodbye to his brother Beerus, instead, he makes the akanbe gesture at him. You'd think this was subverting it, but given Champa, it's played as a last show of affection. Beerus is visibly distressed from losing him.
- Badass Baritone: Played With. His Latin American voice actor has a deep voice, and Champa does have the menacing tone when being serious, but most of the time, he sounds too goofy to be taken seriously, which is the point.
- Becoming the Mask: Initially, he only participated in a baseball match with Beerus because he intends to steal Earth's food there, but over time his gets more and more enamored into the match due to his desire to defeat his brother to the point that after the match, he trains his team to become better at baseball in hopes to win in the rematch, completely forgetting why he even played it in the first place. Vados even lampshades this fact.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Is fat to the point he tires out from walking too far and has many silly traits like his brother. At the same time, he is Beerus' equal and a fight between the two could potentially obliterate both universes. Episode 40 shows that he doesn't care about his own teammates and was going to murder all of them for losing; even Hit was freaked out.
- The Tournament of Power shows that, when threatened enough, he can be a terrifying planner: while the plan to deploy Hit and his nine brothers is Played for Laughs and fails because Hit doesn't have brothers, his first idea was to verify if his universe' strongest assassin had nine equals; in the Tournament proper he calls in Frost fully knowing how he actually is because he knows his true colors and that he can be of help, leading to the near elimination of Vegeta, sends Cabba to recruit more Saiyan and calls in two Namekians who fused with all the other Namekian warriors to become more powerful, plans for Hit's possible elimination by giving Potara earrings to Caulifla and Kale, also dealing with Kale's issues in Berserker form, and when things start to go bad and sees a glimpse of Jiren's true power instructs his warriors to eliminate all weak fighters and avoid Jiren at all costs so they'll end up winning by having more fighters when the time is up.
- Big Eater: He loves to eat as much as Beerus and wants the Earth so he can eat the food there. Unlike the other big eaters in the series, Champa's eating habit shows in his weight.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: Being Beerus' twin brother and a God of Destruction, he also has an odd moral code. Overall, he treat mortals decently like sharing food with Goku and Vegeta, and felt sorry for Frost when he heard that he entered the tournament between U6 and U7 to gain his support for his charity organization. At the same time, he's extremely petty and a Sore Loser. He's willing to murder his entire team for losing to U7 during the tournament and sees his team as nothing but pawns in the game of the gods.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: He is around the same power level as Beerus, but he is so lazy that he won't even destroy his own planets.
- Butt-Monkey: Of all the all-powerful characters, he gets the least respect despite being a God of Destruction. Nothing seems to be going his way in the tournament, either: Vegeta alone defeated three of his five fighters and the two wins Frost did get for him turn out to be illegitimate (although Piccolo was still taking out of the tournament since Vegeta forces him to forfeit so he can fight Frost). However, he is more than confident that Hit alone can win him the entire tournament and isn't all that worried. He is right to be confident given that Hit takes down Vegeta without taking a single blow and Beerus is pushed to using his last good fighter since Monaka isn't strong at all and is only there as a Motivational Lie.
- Can't Live Without You: His life is tied with the Supreme Kais of Universe 6, similar to how Beerus's life is tied with the Supreme Kai of Universe 7.
- Cat Folk: Just like Beerus, he resembles a humanoid hairless cat, namely the Cornish Rex breed.
- Cats Are Mean: He is very much like his brother, except lazier.
- Character Development: During the Universe 6 vs. Universe 7 Tournament, Champa threatened to wipe out Hit and his team for not beating Beerus' team. By the time of the Tournament of Power, when Hit is eliminated by Jiren (and after giving a great performance), Champa only tells Hit "Good job out there. Your defeat won't be in vain". Likewise, when Cabba is eliminated by Frieza in the next episode, he doesn't get mad at him and directs his ire at Frieza for attacking Cabba while he was exhausted.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Surprisingly, despite literally being twins with one of the previous arc villains, he's notably different from previous Dragon Ball villains in a number of ways. For example:
- He's the first arc antagonist who has a lower stakes than world devastation since the Red Ribbon Army showed up.
- He doesn't fight, nor want to fight, Goku, something that hasn't happened since the original series.
- He's actually of a lower to, or equal to, threat level than a previous villain. Similarly to the first one, while he might be stronger than Frieza he is probably weaker than Beerus. However thanks to simply wanting to move the Earth to another dimension, he's less threatening than Frieza and all the Z villains and most of the original series villains.
- He's the first Arc villain who isn't an Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy again since the Red Ribbon Army arc. While Champa is a multiverse class fighter, being a God of Destruction, he has no particular need to prove anything in terms of martial arts skills. While he does briefly spar with Beerus, Vados and Whis put a stop to it quickly.
- He is the only arc villain so far that isn't (primarily) threatening because of either a raw power or his ability to command underlings. He does have both, but he starts the Champa saga more because of his position in the multiverse than anything else.
- Cosmic Entity: Like his brother, he is a God of Destruction who could destroy the entire universe if he desired it. He is also not too concerned about the lives of mortals, given how he destroyed countless planets while searching for the Super Dragon Balls.
- Deadpan Snarker: He and Beerus often communicate with each other through Snark-to-Snark Combat.Champa: Hah, snoozy Beerus is awake for once! Guess there is such a thing as miracles.
- Defiant to the End: He makes a mocking face towards Beerus as he's being erased.
- Destroyer Deity: Just like his brother, he is the God of Destruction who destroys planets for the sake of cosmic balance on Universe 6. That said, however, he has shown to be lazier than Beerus, letting his assistant do the work, much to her annoyance.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Shows up much earlier in the manga adaptation of Super than in the anime; while the Battle of Gods arc was going on.
- Edible Theme Naming: Champagne. Yet another thing to establish him as a counterpart to Beerus.
- Everyone Has Standards:
- Zig-zagged with Frost. When Vados explains she scouted Frost by promising him Champa's assistance if he wins the tournament, Champa can't help but feel bad for the poor guy knowing he has little chance of defeating all other tournament fighters, and is pretty upset to be told by Vados that he won't be supporting Frost if he loses. He also isn't happy to learn that Frost is a planet broker who cheated through his fights by poisoning his opponent. He was ready to kill Frost on the spot and didn't want the forfeit to be overturned when Vegeta wanted to fight Frost, not caring if it meant a loss for his team. He only changes his mind after Vados reminds him of his rivalry against Beerus, after which he's willing to turn a blind eye and even support Frost if he wins the tournament for him, although when Frost loses he doesn't really care (in contrast to his reactions when the other team loses) and he seemingly kicked him out of the team after this incident, as he does not participate in a baseball match afterwards.
- He's also upset when he finds out Vados offered Hit the universe-jumping travel cube if he won the tournament, even seeming unnerved by the idea of a legendary hitman and assassin possessing that. While he doesn't call off the deal due to Hit being the sole remaining member of his team and last chance to win by then, he's at least got the standards not to overlook the consequences of that action.
- Evil Counterpart: Played With. He is more boorish than Beerus, but he isn't really more evil. In fact, he comes off as fairly polite and treats Goku and Vegeta with a degree of respect while Beerus treated them like dirt when he first met them. He also doesn't show Beerus' habit of blowing up planets for petty reasons and doesn't have any of his twin's Berserk Buttons. The planets he does destroy are because he's searching for the Super Dragon Balls. And the fact that he tries to destroy Frost after learning his true identity shows that he has standards, even if it's just not to embarrass him with poor sportsmanship.
- Evil Is Petty: His motivation is at the end of it all simply to show up his brother and eat a lot of food. Champa was going to destroy his team for "dragging his name through the mud" as a result of losing the tournament.
- Evil Twin: More like Beerus' more blunt twin since he is no more evil than Beerus unless you count the manga's Adaptational Villainy.
- Evil Laugh: Gives one as he prepares to kill his entire team.
- Eyelid Pull Taunt: Does this to Universe 7 before the start of the Tournament of Power. It's also the last thing he does to Beerus before he's erased.
- Face Death with Dignity: For all his cowardice and bad attitude and sheer panic at the thought of being erased? When he realizes the jig is up and there's no avoiding his fate, he gives a last eyelid pull taunt to Beerus in an almost playful manner instead of freaking out as a way of saying goodbye to his brother.
- Fat and Skinny: He is the fat to Beerus' skinny.
- Fat Bastard: To contrast Beerus being Lean and Mean.Vegeta: Say doesn't he kind of look like Lord Beerus?Goku: Yah like if Lord Beerus ate another Lord Beerus.
- Friendly Enemy: Despite being at odds with Goku and his friends since they side with Beerus, he is actually quite nice to them and even shares food with Goku and Vegeta. When Goku loses to Frost, he mostly demeans and mocks Beerus, not Goku who he compliments as Beerus' ace.
- Greater-Scope Villain: In the Super manga Champa is portrayed as this. While Beerus causes chaos on Earth during the Battle of Gods Saga, Champa is flying around with Vados searching for the Super Dragon Balls, and giving grief to Old Kai and the Supreme Kai who don't know what he wants.
- Hot-Blooded: He is even more short-tempered than Beerus and is always willing to fight him for petty reasons. That said, he rarely takes his anger out on other people or planets, unlike Beerus. Subverted in Episode 40; Champa was going to destroy his team and nothing they said could calm him down.
- Hypocrite: When Hit faces Dyspo he states that he can't stand a guy who looks like Beerus, despite the fact that as Beerus' twin brother and a member of their species Dyspo looks like him too. When all the members of the Maiden Squadron have been eliminated he's also quick to mock Universe 2 for being down to three fighters, even if Universe 6 is down to two. In both cases Vados is quick to point out how hypocrital he is.
- Inexplicably Awesome: Like his twin brother, he is a god among gods and nothing is really known about him. He could have been mortal at one point since Whis and Beerus have hinted several times that mortals like Goku and Vegeta can become the new Gods of Destruction. This is further supported by the appearance of Dypso in the Tournament of Power arc, as he appears to be of the same race of both Beerus and Champa but is definitely a Mortal, proving that others like Beerus and Champa exist elsewhere in the universes.
- It's All About Me: Champa doesn't give a lick about teamwork or honor, ultimately this tournament is just a way to vent his Sibling Rivalry with Beerus since fighting him personally would destroy both of their universes. He even outright admits that his team are nothing but pawns in his own game.
- Jerkass: Unlike Beerus, who even has moments of civility and compassion at his worst, Champa can be prick, since he wants to show up his brother. At the same time, Champa doesn't have anywhere near as many Jerkass moments compared to Beerus. His manga counterpart is another story.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While less apparent in the manga, he's much more humane with his temper despite being more volatile and much more Hot-Blooded than Beerus, doesn't take it to Ax-Crazy omnicidal mania and is positively disgusted by Frost's true colours.
- Know When to Fold 'Em: Whenever the Second Time Patroller fights him in Xenoverse 2's Parallel Quests, Champa will bail out of the fight after losing enough health. He'll occasionally even admit he's impressed that the Time Patroller as the nerve to stand up to him and the power to back it up.
- Laughably Evil: He's really funny when he's eating good food, and his reaction to Vados's creation of tournament field is one too. In anime, he's simply moody so far, not evil.
- Lazy Bum: Tries to get Vados to do the work for him whenever he can, as by his own admission he's too lazy to do it himself. This comes back to bite him during the Universal Tournament. He was so lazy that he didn't bother to pick his own fighters, having Vados to do the work. So, he actually has no idea how powerful his own team is or what their abilities are, like him not knowing Cabba can't transform into a Super Saiyan like Goku. He also had no clue that Frost was a planet broker who only pretended to be a hero so he could buy planets on the cheap before selling them. When he yells at Vados for bringing someone like Frost, she says that he only ordered her to bring him the strongest fighters in the universe, not the strongest moral fighters in the universe who were also good people.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: Shows this ability when trying to get his brother's attention, yelling loud enough the force of it almost knocks Beerus back and Goku and Vegeta think it was an attack by Beerus.
- It's even a special attack he has in Xenoverse 2.
- Manchild: He is extremely childish. He holds petty contests against Beerus like who can bring the best food and is quite temperamental when he doesn't get his way. When Goku wins against his fighter during the first round of the Universal Tournament, he literally has a temper tantrum, accusing Goku of cheating by hiding his strength and using an energy attack before rolling on the floor crying. All that being said, Champa hasn't shown to be a Psychopathic Manchild like his brother, Beerus. He doesn't destroy planets for petty reasons (the ones he did destroys were during his search for the Super Dragon Balls), have nowhere near as many Berserk Buttons as Beerus, shows sympathy for others like him wanting to help Frost even if he didn't win at the tournament after hearing why he's fighting for him, and was somewhat polite to Goku and Vegeta when he meets them, while Beerus treated them like dirt (and still does to an extent).
- Mysterious Past: Like his brother, nothing is known about his past. By statements made by Zeno, he wasn't born a god, but appointed to the position.
- Never My Fault: Is quick to blame others (usually Vados or Beerus) for situations that result from his own lack of foresight. Vados likes to call him out on this.
- No Badass to His Valet: He may be a God of Destruction capable of destroying the universe, but that doesn't stop Vados from snarking about him being overweight and lazy.
- Obsessed with Food: Must be a family trait. The entire Universe 6 vs. Universe 7 tournament is about Champa wanting to move the Earth to his universe so he can eat there.
- OOC Is Serious Business: Both Beerus and him are terrified of Zeno and immediately humble themselves in his presence. This is saying a lot since they're both Jerkass Gods with huge egos.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Like his brother, he's ungodly strong. If he and his brother ever fought, they'd destroy both universes. Just the two of them trading a couple of punches forms a Sphere of Destruction that reduces a good portion of the room they're in to ash without one energy attack being used.
- Pet the Dog: After Hit is knocked out of the Tournament of Power by Jiren Champa actually congratulates him on the splendid fight he gave and notes that his sacrifice likely inspired the rest of his team to do their best for the remainder of the Tournament.
- Physical God: The God of Destruction of Universe 6, and thus Beerus' equal in rank and approximate match in power. Vados jokes that he's weaker than Beerus since he's so out of shape, but that's still compared to Beerus, which puts him in a completely different league than nearly anyone else.
- Pragmatic Villainy: He goes back on his death threat and decides to spare his team after Zeno shows up not because he realized he was being selfish and unreasonable, but to keep them around to represent him in the multiverse tournament Zeno has planned some time in the future.
- Purple Is Powerful: His hue of purple is more of a red-violet than Beerus' blue-violet
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Beerus' blue. But this seems to apply more to their Sibling Rivalry than anything else, as Beerus will go indiscriminately Ax-Crazy on an entire species if one member of it even so much as annoys him, while Champa, despite having maybe a vicious temper as well, doesn't turn into an Omnicidal Maniac upon being slighted and instead focuses his anger on the person who did it. He's also quick to forgive, unlike his brother who will annihilate Earth if they don't pay tribute to him, and holds even the most petty of slights as full-blown grudges.
- Sibling Rivalry: It's quite clear that Beerus and Champa have this sort of thing going on between themselves. Beerus even states that the entire tournament isn't really about the Super Dragon Balls or the Earth, but two gods finding an excuse to fight. They just can't do it directly between themselves or it'll destroy their universes in the process. During the tournament he is willing to overlook and even support Frost after finding out that he's evil if he can beat the last two members of Beerus' team, after he wanting to kill Frost for disgracing his universe. His rivalry with Beerus is so strong that he's actually willing to overlook his own standards.
- Smug Smiler: The first image of him has him mugging full force.
- Skewed Priorities: Champa takes his rivalry with Beerus so seriously that he often put the goal of beating or humiliating Beerus above really important things such as survival. During the Tournament of Power even with the looming threat of being erased Champa still wanted above all to beat Beerus and constantly instructed his fighters to target the members of Universe 7 even when they are greatly outmatched, which played a big role in the elimination of his team and consequent erasure of his universe.
- The Sociopath: From what we've seen of Champa, he seems to be the same high-functional sociopath as Beerus, although his impulse issues are not nearly as bad. He care for little outside his own wants, thinks his team are nothing but pawns to the gods, and treats Vados even worse than Beerus treats Whis. He was also ready to kill his entire team for the shame of losing to U7 and he did this all while gloating with an Evil Laugh. However, much like Beerus, being a sociopath doesn't make him necessarily evil, but gives him a complicated moral code since he does show some level of care when he hears that Frost is fighting to help children, and he's disturbed and angry when he learns that Frost is really an underground planet broker. But he then turns around and promises to support Frost if he defeats Vegeta, since he really wants to beat Beerus during the tournament, although he doesn't care when Frost loses.
- Sore Loser: Does not take defeat well at all. When Botamo ends up losing in the first round he whines that it wasn't fair because Goku used energy projectiles in the match. Pretty much everyone from Beerus, the referee and even his own assistant, Vados, calls him out on his behavior and that Goku's victory was within the rules. He then rolls around crying for several seconds before Vados calms him down. Taken to the extreme in Episode 40 where instead of accepting his loss in the tournament, he decides to murder his entire team.
- Stout Strength: Despite his low stamina and laziness, he's the God of Destruction of Universe 6 for a reason. For instance, he's able to fight his brother and fellow God of Destruction Beerus to a standstill. One of their clashes even threatened to destroy both of their universes!
- Top God: He is the God of Destruction for Universe 6, making him the strongest being in his universe outside of Vados.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Although still a bit of a Jerkass, he's softened up by the time the Tournament of Power rolls around, being more accepting of his fighters getting eliminated despite the much higher stakes involved. He's still freaking out about it, but he doesn't lash out against them.
- Vocal Evolution: His voice actors from Japan, Funimation, and Latin America have something in common: Champa sounded more serious in his first appearance, but once his first encounter with Beerus happens, he started to sound more whiny and silly.
- The Unfought: Despite the Tournament Arc being called the Champa Saga, he never fights the heroes. This is mostly because he has no personal dislike towards Goku and the others, and he's so far above them that he can easily defeat them, much like Beerus in the Battle of Gods Saga.
- Ungrateful Bastard: Beerus wished Earth back for Champa's universe for seemingly no reason aside from hidden kindness, which Champa acknowledges and states that he owes Beerus one. Yet despite this, by the Tournament of Power, he doesn't hesitate to have his brother's universe erased just so he can beat his rival.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Whilst every character talks about the fact that Goku was the one who went to Zeno and reminded him about the multiverse tournament in which eight universes must fight to escape deletion, it's actually Champa that's to thank for starting the entire ruckus. He was the one who approached Beerus with the idea of a team tournament between the universes. Not only was this Goku's first encounter with beings not of the Seventh Universe, the tournament would draw the interest of Zeno so much that it gave the Omni-King the idea for the Tournament of Power in the first place. Of course, when you add the other little detail that Zeno was going to erase all eight universes anyway and the tournament actually gave them each a fighting chance, it changes the game a bit so that this fat cat, much like as noted with Goku, is actually the winning universe's Accidental Hero with this one.
- Unknown Rival: Downplayed as Beerus acknowledges his rivalry with Champa but is otherwise apathetic about it. Champa on the other hand, takes the rivalry much more seriously to the point that based on the conflicts we see this far between them, he is always the one who started it first, from food fighting, to the tournament, even the baseball match.
- Villainy-Free Villain: With the exception of threatening to kill his fighters when they lose the tournaments, which only happened in the anime, he's largely this during the U6 tournament. He's a unlikable prick for the most part, but he's only the antagonist in so much as he represents the other side of a tournament that Goku and Vegeta actively wanted.
Vados (ヴァドス, Vadosu)
Whis's sister. She is the attendant to her god the same way Whis is to Beerus.
As an angel and possibly stronger than Whis, she was quite likely Dragon Ball's most powerful character at the time of her introduction and would remain so until Zeno showed up. She still remains one of the strongest females to date by far, considering Whis' Hypercompetent Sidekick status and that Champa seems to be "Beerus, but worse".
- Ambiguously Evil: Or at least affably amoral. Unlike her brother, Whis, who is a Nice Guy, she doesn't mind including sociopathic Villain with Good Publicity Frost, offering him Champa's help if he wins. She also promises Hit, Universe 6's best hitman, the Cube - the gods' transport of travelling between universes. Both events can have really bad consequences.
- Action Girl: As an angel, she is among the strongest characters in all of Dragon Ball, but she doesn't get involved in fights due to the angels having the role of observers. However, she is playable in video games like Xenoverse 2, where she plays just as silly as her brother, Whis.
- Adaptational Jerkass: She is more of a jerk in the manga. The most stand out example being the birthday cake incident where she set up Beerus and Champa to fight, which lead to several planets being destroyed. This incident never happened in the anime and she is actually quite civil and polite.
- Almighty Janitor: She is Champa's assistant and holds no rank of any real importance that we know of. Considering her job is to babysit Champa like Whis does with Beerus, she is also likely one of the strongest characters in the series. One of her feats, she manages to fly at full speed while carrying six Super Dragon Balls that are bigger than the Earth. Vados claims to be stronger than Whis, but Whis disagrees by saying that it's been 1000 years since they last fought each other so things could've changed since then.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: Like with Beerus and Whis, Vados is shown to be quite morally gray as a character. She clearly enjoys the sight of a planet destroyed by her own hand, and was responsible for countless deaths by making Champa and Beerus fight over a silly reason. At the same time, the series never treats her as a villain, but just as someone doing her job despite how rude she may seem, and has moments where she is clearly shown to care about Champa.
- Brutal Honesty: She's never shy to expresses her opinions to Champa or to remind him and others about his weight much to his embarrasment, telling Champa that he's getting too fat and pointing out how absurd Goku's question of whoever is stronger between Champa and Beerus is, since you can guess just by looking at their body shapes.
- Can't Live Without You: Her life is tied to Champa's. If he were to die, she would cease to function until a replacement is selected.
- Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Her job, like Whis, is to keep Champa from getting into trouble and doing too much damage. She isn't as strict as Whis, however, and lets Champa do what he wants as long as he doesn't fight Beerus.
- Combo Platter Powers: She's an Almighty Janitor who is stronger than Champa by a large margin and may be stronger than Whis. She's also a Reality Warper who can create nearly unbreakable shields, create her own atmospheres, hold items in a Pocket Dimension, find almost anyone or anything in the universe using her staff, heal wounds, and can travel faster than the speed of light with ease.
- Cosmic Entity: Although technically not a god, she is more powerful than Champa and have reality warping powers. She also not too concerned about the lives of mortals. It is later revealed that she's an angel.
- Deadpan Snarker: When Champa complains that she didn't do a good enough job with the seating of the U7 Vs. U6 tournament, she basically states that she was living down to him (which Beerus runs with, if only to insult his brother).
- The Dragon: Played With. She is Champa's servant and is Whis' equal in power, but she allows Champa to do whatever he likes and even helps him like destroying planets on his order. However, she does choose what orders she want to follow will interpret Champa's order loosely to troll him.
- Distaff Counterpart: To Whis, being his sister and all.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Shows up much earlier in the manga adaptation of Super than in the anime; while the Battle of Gods arc was going on.
- Edible Theme Naming: Vados from Calvados, name of an apple brandy and fitting in with the alcohol theme of the Gods of Destruction and their Angels.
- Evil Counterpart: Unlike Whis, she doesn't seem to be an Anti-Villain. At least in the manga. In the anime, she isn't as compassionate or as warm as Whis, but she isn't shown to be evil. That said, personally handpicking a Manipulative Bastard Galactic Conqueror with Good Publicity to join Champa's team and promising that Champa will assist him in his endeavors if they win, potentially putting at least a quadrant of her universe under the mercy of a "heroic" tyrant running a planetary real estate scam, may be a step in that direction.
- Exact Words:
- When Champa yells at her for recruiting Frost, after finding out that he's a planet broker in the anime, her response is that he told her to find the strongest fighters in the universe. Not the strongest moral fighters.
- The same applies to recruiting Hit by offering the legendary hitman the ability to jump universes. Her response to Champa yelling at her for that is to remind him he told her to do whatever it took to get a strong team.
- Faster-Than-Light Travel: She is just as fast as Whis who can travel the universe in under an hour. She can even maintain her speed while hauling six Super Dragon Balls, which are three times the size of Earth.
- Holy Halo: Both Whis and Vados have rings around their necks like halos. It's later revealed that they're both angels.
- Hypercompetent Sidekick: She does all the heavy lifting since Champa is too lazy to do anything himself, including destroying planets and picking Champa's team for the Universal Tournament.
- Jerkass: In the manga, she certainly possesses a nastier streak than Whis. Her Kick the Dog moments only strengthen this claim. In the anime, she also recruited Frost knowing that he was actually a space pirate.
- Kick the Dog: She destroys an unknown planet, knowing that it's not the planet Champa and she are looking for, and clearly takes pleasure in destroying it. In the Super manga, she also intentionally starts a fight between Beerus and Champa, which results in the destruction of several planets and its people. In the anime, her allowing Frost, a space pirate, and Villain with Good Publicity, to participate in Champa's tournament and perfectly knowing who he is, definitely counts. She also teases Champa about his erasure during the Universal Survival saga, which Champa's obviously doesn't react well.
- Sixth Ranger: She joined Universe 7 bench after Universe 6 erasure.
- Only Sane Woman: She like her brother views her job this way. She points out when Champa is being childish and irrational, but unlike Whis, is much looser about reigning Champa in. During the Universal Survival arc, when all of the Gods of Destruction turn on Goku for his role in the creation of the Tournament of Power, she points out that if it weren't for him, they would all be dead already and that Goku actually bought them time and a chance to survive.
- Our Angels Are Different: Whis and Vados are a type of angel, according to U7's Supreme Kai, who only functions as long as their God of Destruction is alive.
- Pet the Dog:
- She actually comes to Goku's defense when the other Gods of Destruction are disparaging him, pointing out that Goku's idea for the Tournament of Power is the only reason any of their universes have a chance to begin with. It falls on deaf ears, but it's a thoughtful gesture nonetheless.
- In the anime, for all her snarking at Champa, she gives him a bow of genuine respect just before he's erased after Universe 6's loss.
- Physical God: As Whis' counterpart and sister, she is one. She can fly at her maximum speed while pulling six Super Dragon Balls, which are bigger than Earth, and has many magical abilities like creating force fields, and magic materialization.
- Pocket Dimension: Vados and Whis can seemingly store endless objects into a pocket dimension using their staffs. This includes food and even people.
- The Quiet One: Immediately upon Universe 6's erasure, she sits with her brother with Universe 7. However, as much commentary she provided, she has been completely silent since that point. However, she did make some brief dialogue when her sister, Marcarita asked about her seating next to Whis.
- Reality Warper: She prepares a planet for the tournament by creating field, atmosphere, and food buildings. There hasn't been a reality warper of this level since Buu.
- Servile Snarker: She tells Champa straight to his face that he's fat, somewhat slow, and has no sense of taste. And she makes it very clear who she thinks will win in a Beerus-Champa duel.
- Sibling Rivalry: Has shades of this with Whis by claiming to be stronger, while he argues against that notion. In the anime, she makes no claim about how strong she is and shows equal respect towards Whis.
- Simple Staff: Much like Whis.
- Sole Survivor: Of Universe 6 following the universe's erasure. Not so much after Universe 6 is restored after the tournament.
- Statuesque Stunner: She's over seven feet tall and nearly as tall as her brother, Whisnote Champa barely comes up to her chest.
- Troll: It's seems that Vados really loves trolling Champa. This gets highlighted during the Tournament of Power where Vados spends the entire time taunting Champa on the possibility of being erased. And then when all the Universe 6 warriors do in fact get eliminated, Vados immediately bails on Champa and joins her brother with Universe 7.
- World's Strongest Woman: Of Universe 6. It's also quite possible that she's also stronger than Whis of all people and everyone has seen what he's capable of. Just like Whis, she can knock out Champa with a single chop to the neck.
Fuwa (フワ) and Universe 6 Attendant (第６宇宙のアテンダント, Dai 6 Uchū no Atendanto)
Just like how Universe 7 has a Supreme Kai, Universe 6 has a Supreme Kai as well, named Fuwa. He's paired with his attendant as well. Fuwa is usually commentating on the battles, usually bickering with the Old Kai.
- Catchphrase: Fuwa started to say "Oh dear, oh dear" a lot during the Universal Survival saga.Champa: Stop saying that!
- Can't Live Without You: Their lives are linked with Champa's.
- Culture Clash: More like Universe Clash, but the Kais in Universe 7 are used to mortals chatting with them like it's nothing. In Universe 6, they find this very unusual and bizarre.
- Hidden Depths: Fuwa, despite his nervous attitude all the time, has something of a hot blooded personality deep down. When he starts to shout for Kefla to win against Goku like a maniac, Beerus is freaked out by it , but Champa and Vados hardly react, implying this is something usual in him.Beerus: Has he always been like this?!Champa: That's just his hidden personality showing. Don't mind him!
- Fat and Skinny:
- Fuwa and his Attendant are fat and skinny respectively.
- Fuwa and Champa also serve as the fat counterparts to Shin/Old Kai and Beerus.
- The Gods Must Be Lazy: By his appearance, he gives off this vibe. Especially when Champa is doing things on his own time.
- Minor Major Character: Doesn't really have significant screentime compared to Champa/Vados and other major Supreme Kais, such as Shin and Gowasu, despite the fact his position is the one of the most significant in his universe. He is, however, the ones to suggest fusion during the Tournament of Power, and gives his Potara earrings to Kale and Caulifla.
- Nervous Wreck: Fuwa is shown to be very nervous at the time of the Tournament of Power. He also freaks out after seeing Jiren's power. Champa even tells him to shape up.
- No Name Given: The Attendant name hasn't been revealed.
- Not So Above It All: Despite appearing more cowardly, or at times much calmer, than Champa, during Kefla and Goku's fight Fuwa starts shouting and screaming for Kefla to kick Goku's butt right alongside Champa. Beerus is freaked out by it.Fuwa: KEFLA! Take him out with the fighting stage!
- OOC Is Serious Business: The quiet Nervous Wreck who goes "Oh dear oh dear"? Well, it's quite frightening, but during the showdown between Kefla and Ultra Instinct Goku, he starts to outright shout at Kefla to win against Goku when Ultra Instinct Goku puts her in a disadvantage, something that Beerus notes is very different than what Fuwa normally sounds like.
- Put on a Bus: The Attendant hasn't appeared on the Universal Survival arc, with only Fuwa appearing. This is interesting to note since Kibito and Old Kai went with Shin and Beerus to the exhibition matches (At least in the anime), but then again, they were the only universe with any assistant appearing (unless if you want to count Toppo, who serves as a bodyguard to Khai (Anime) and Belmod's disciple (manga)).
- The Quiet One: Fuwa doesn't talk much, in comparison with Champa who likes to boasts and Vados who likes to snark at her boss expense. Fuwa, by comparison, just remains quiet watching the fights during the Tournament of Power. However, during the intense battle between Kefla and Ultra Instinct Goku, Fuwa outright shouts at Kefla not to lose against Goku.
- Satellite Character: The Attendant doesn't have any sort of individual characterization.
- Top God: Just like the Supreme Kai of Universe 6, he is the "God of Creation" of Universe 6, although he probably fears Champa as much as Shin and Old Kai fears Beerus.
- Underestimating Badassery: He's quite cocky and when watching the fight between Frost and Goku, he expects Frost to decimate Goku ... until he becomes a Super Saiyan.
Botamo (ボタモ, Botamo)
A warrior from Universe 6, resembling a large yellow bear. He fights Goku in the tournament and is the first opponent overall.
- Acrofatic: He's actually quite light on his feet for a guy his size, and uses his agility and Stone Wall ability to become briefly bounce around the arena to attack Goku.
- Adaptational Badass:
- Downplayed. Both manga and anime Botamo didn't take any damage from Goku's attacks, and he's still defeated in the same way as his manga incarnation. But he doesn't even flinch from Goku's attacks in the anime, since all of Goku's damage is transferred into another dimension; while in the manga, he was repeatedly knocked around like a rubber ball.
- In the manga, it's even possible that he scored a knockout in the Tournament of Power by taking out Monna from Universe 4 (he was shown fighting against her), although she was eliminated off screen.
- Anti-Climax: While his Stone Wall ability makes him a tough opponent to beat in a straight fight, in the tournament he is easily beaten by Goku once he realizes that he can just drag Botamo out of the ring with no trouble. It's zigzagged however, as manga Botamo displays speed and agility the anime version doesn't show.
- Bears Are Bad News: Bear-like, and caused Goku some trouble in his round due to him sponging Goku's attacks.
- Break the Haughty: After being defeated by Goku, he goes behind the sofa and cries. He gets over it rather quickly, however, to watch the next match.
- Butt-Monkey: He is the first member of his team to be eliminated in the Universe 6 Tournament and the anime version of the Tournament of Power he fought in. Both times are due to relying too much on his ability to absorb attacks and not actually having a way to fight back once this weakness is exploited and both times were by members of Goku's family, first against Goku then his son Gohan. In the manga, he's able to outlast at least Dr. Rota and Frost.
- The Cameo: An illusion of Botamo is summoned by Universe 4 fighter Shantza during episode 119. Ironically, he is shown fighting more as an illusion than the real deal (Who relied too much on his defenses and team work with Magetta).
- Crippling Overspecialization: While a good fighter in his own right, his strategy mainly relies on using his invulnerability to wear down opponents until they're too weak to fight back or to force them out of the ring by stonewalling them. In a tournament match against Goku, he realizes that he doesn't have to beat Botamo, just throw him out of the ring, something Botamo can't prevent because Goku is far stronger. He has also relied on his ability for so long that once it proves to be ineffective, he had nothing else to rely on. He does slightly better against Vegeta in the Tournament of Power, as he's able to keep Vegeta from throwing him out, but Vegeta compensates by simply tying his arms and hoisting him overhead to carry him to the edge. If Magetta didn't jump in for the save, he would have lost.
- Didn't See That Coming:
- He never considered that someone could drag and throw him out of the ring, negating his absorption ability.
- Later, he does see it coming, but then gets blindsided again as he never considered someone could just tie his arms and carry him to the edge to drop.
- Gohan pushes him out of the ring in episode 103 by punching him rapidly, the force of which lifts Botamo off the ground. As he's too large to reach Gohan with either mouth blasts or his limbs, Gohan is able to walk him to the edge and then send him flying off with a Kamehameha.
- Edible Theme Naming: His name is derived from "Botamochi", a dumpling made of sweet rice coated with Azuki bean paste.
- Enemy Mine: He joins members of Universe 9 and 4 in order to attack Universe 7 during the Tournament of Power.
- Expy: His ability to not be hurt by any of base form Goku's attacks makes him similar to Buyon from the original Dragon Ball series. Both took direct hits from a Kamehameha and weren't affected at all. He also looks almost exactly like Winnie-the-Pooh, in particular the depiction used by Disney.
- Fusion Dance: Parodied in the Universal Survival Arc. He rides on Auta Magetta's shoulders and covers his ears to keep him from hearing insults, calling the formation: "Bota Magetta".
- Informed Attribute: His character biography in Shonen Jump states that he is very proud of his strength. It may have been how Overshadowed by Awesome he was, but he never displayed any great strength in his match and instead had to resort to his durability.
- Logical Weakness: His overreliance on his nigh-invulnerability to being struck has made him exceptionally weak towards being grappled.
- Nigh-Invulnerable: His special ability is to transfer damage he would've taken to another dimension, negating it. No matter what hits him, he never takes any damage himself. Though nothing is shown to overcome it, it does have its weaknesses. Piccolo and Vegeta speculate that Goku could have damaged him if he were to go all out (which goes untested), he is terrified of Champa (showing that his ability wouldn't protect him from Champa), and, in episode 100, he's sent flying when one of Kale's stray blasts explodes near him. His opponents usually result to immobilizing him then throwing him out of the ring.
- No-Sell: He is able to redirect any damage he would take to another dimension. Nothing is shown to breach this defense, though there are ways of working around it.
- Odd Friendship: In episode 70, Botamo works together with Magetta to catch a baseball after it's thrown over Magetta in an attempt to keep it from being caught since he can't fly. This act of teamwork suggests that they became friends after the tournament as a result of Botamo comforting Magetta after his loss to Vegeta. After Magetta saves him from being ringed out by Vegeta in the Tournament of Power, the two even team up to take the Saiyan Prince on. Pretty odd pair, a bear and a metal man.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: He's suppose to be one of the strongest warriors from U6, and indeed, his character biography states that he is very proud of his strength. He is still far below Goku, who in fairness is literally a Physical God, and is beaten by him without transforming. This only goes further in regards to the other tournament participants. Both Frost and Magetta were able to force the Saiyans to transform, Cabba became an even match for Super Saiyan Vegeta after he ascended, while Hit is the most powerful member in Universe 6 who destroys Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta. On the U7 side, Vegeta is almost as strong as Goku, and Monaka is hyped up to be the strongest in Universe 7, which turns out to be a lie created by Beerus to encourage Goku and Vegeta to become stronger. With the possible exceptions of Monaka, Piccolo, and Buu, Botamo is physically the weakest of the tournament participants.
- Pet the Dog:
- While he is cocky and smug, he is also the only person on his team to comfort Magetta after he loses his match due to Vegeta insulting him.
- In the manga, he and Goku both bow to each other before their match, showing that despite Botamo's smug attitude, he does have some honor.
- Red Is Violent: Botamo dons a bright red sleeveless shirt while being a formindable damage sponge.
- Rubber Man: Downplayed. His body is balloon-like, able to stretch and compress with no apparent discomfort to Botamo. His body has enough elasticity to allow his arms to be tied into a knot without any bones breaking (assuming there are even any bones to break).
- Smug Super: Whenever he smiles, it's always a smug little grin. But he's one of the five strongest warriors in his universe, so it makes perfect sense.
- Stone Wall: His main ability is being able to No-Sell any kind of attack. His durability is so great that a Kamehameha from an untransformed Goku causes no damage. In the manga, Piccolo and Vegeta speculates that Goku could damage him if he transformed, but Goku intended to preserve his strength for the tournament. This is not to say that he's completely safe from harm, as he can still be manhandled or sent flying by indirect means like explosions near him. He is also shown to be afraid of Champa, showing that his durability wouldn't protect him from Champa.
- Story-Breaker Power: He can transfer attacks to his body to another dimension, negating all the damage. This unique damage absorption ability can even keep him safe from Saiyan Beyond God Goku's Kamehameha. If Botamo was in a regular fight, he would certainly beat most opponents by wearing down their stamina before finishing them off. However, since he has only fought in tournament fights, his opponents are able to simply ring him out through indirect means.
- Superpower Lottery: His unique damage absorption ability. He can absorb damage from Goku, including the Kamehameha. In the manga, it's suggested that Goku could have overwhelmed him if he went Super Saiyan. In the anime, Goku says he would have probably lost in a straight fight, although it was unknown if Goku simply meant that he couldn't win without transforming.
- Taking You with Me: He tries this on Gohan, firing an energy blast at him before falling from the ring. Gohan just dissipates it.
- Unskilled, but Strong: A unique mixture of this and Stone Wall. He was more than capable of taking Goku's attacks with no trouble, but he is far outclassed by him in combat. His strategy is to No-Sell his opponent's attacks while they run out of stamina or he can push them out of the ring, but he didn't think about being defeated by a ring out, and couldn't do anything about being thrown out of the ring by Goku, who even in base was much stronger, faster, and skilled. Goku specifically notes that he has relied on his ability for so long that he neglected his training.
Auta Magetta (オッタ マゲッタ, Otta Magetta)
A Universe 6 warrior from a race called the Metal Men who also takes part in the tournament for Champa. He fights Vegeta in the tournament and is the third opponent overall.
- Adaptational Wimp: He gets a minor case of this in the Super manga. In the anime, he gives Vegeta a hard fight and nearly rings him out twice thanks to his species' ability to produced and withstand heat, having a nearly indestructible body that can withstand a Final Flash from Super Saiyan Vegeta, and can drink and spit up lava. In the manga, Vados doesn't produce a second barrier, which greatly limits Magetta since he can neither fly nor can he suffocate Vegeta with his heat. He does no real damage to Vegeta during their match and the entire fight is treated as a gag similar to the early Dragon Ball fights.
- Aliens Speaking English: Averted; he seems to speak in his own language. His species language primarily seems to consist of "Choo-Poo!" In the dub, he speaks entirely in onomatopoeia for robotic sounds. He does appear to understand the japanese that the other characters speak though.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: The Metal Men look like robots, but they're actually living creatures. They drink lava, can withstand high heat, and are super tough to the point of tanking energy blasts that can destroy planets. They also don't seem to have natural ki like every other character in Dragon Ball, although Magetta does have a standard Battle Aura in the anime.
- Catchphrase: "Choo-po!", changed to "Chug-chug" in the English dub.
- Convection Schmonvection: Subverted. Thanks to a secondary barrier surrounding the arena, his lava attacks increase the ambient heat enough that even Vegeta begins to feel it. Naturally also justified with him being unharmed as he literally eats lava, so of course heat doesn't bother him at all.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: At first, he looks like your typical filler character, a weak and unimpressive fighter with a goofy design that would probably be defeated quickly by the Z fighters. When he fights Vegeta, he also appears slow and clumsy, nothing that could cause someone like Vegeta any trouble. However, Magetta turns out to be quite a strong and absurdly durable fighter that puts Vegeta in deep trouble in their fight (at least in the anime).
- Exploited Immunity: He is immune to heat since he eats lava and doesn't seem to need to breathe. He uses this to heat up the ring (where the heat is trapped by Vados' second barrier) when he fights Vegeta and nearly suffocates him.
- Fartillery: His species farts are evidently incredibly explosive. He's aware of this and weaponizes it, triggering an explosion that nearly ring outs Vegeta.
- Flanderization: In the Universe 6 Saga, Magetta said several (incomprehensible) things besides "Choo poo!", and he did not say that phrase that often. From the baseball game onwards, he hardly says anything but "Choo poo!". This was probably done to give him a catchphrase, as well as because it was the only thing he said that could really be said or remembered by the audience.
- Gathering Steam: He grows more powerful as he gets angrier, and specifically invokes this by hitting himself.
- Genius Bruiser: He doesn't look like it, but he's very aware of his species' abilities and is adept at using them to give himself the advantage.
- Gentle Giant: A mighty, metal living volcano with the grits to take an enraged Vegeta head-on with no fear... but hurt his feelings, and he won't take it very well. He and Botamo work out a strategy to counter this mental block by the Tournament of Power, having Botamo cover Magetta's ears so he can't hear insults.
- Handicapped Badass: He is one of the very few non-Earthlings who can't fly. It doesn't stop him from giving Vegeta a hard time. He is without a doubt, the most powerful flightless character introduced. However, in the Tournament of Power, flying is prohibited (except for those with wings), so the "handicapped" part is crossed out here for him.
- Home Field Advantage: One of his abilities is to superheat the environment around him. While he eats, and is filled with, molten lava, this has no effect on Magetta, but fatigues and weakens his opponent. Of note, this actually has an impact on Vegeta, who normally is unaffected by this trope being invoked by his opponent.
- Humongous Mecha: The first we've seen in the series since the Pilaf Machines, at that!
- Improvised Weapon: Uses a piece of his hardened lava breath as a club to great effect and comes literally within an inch of ringing Vegeta out by smacking him with it.
- The Juggernaut: Magetta is Nigh-Invulnerable and strong enough to fight Gods. However, the real reason he's this trope is because of his special ability: the longer he fights and the angrier he gets, the more powerful he becomes. Once he gets going, he can be hard to stop, as Vegeta finds out. In the end, even as a Super Saiyan, Vegeta can't actually do anything more than stun him for a few moments and has to ring him out. We also got to see him trade blows with Toppo without any serious issues (who was strong enough to take on Goku during the exhibition match). Later, Frost asks Magetta to assist him in his fight with Vegeta, with the metal man absorbing the saiyan prince´s ki attacks like if they were nothing. Magetta only gets eliminated at the end due to Vegeta, again, exploiting his weakness to insults. Were not for his Weaksauce Weakness, Magetta could be virtually unstoppable and one of the top threats of the tournament.
- Lightning Bruiser: Given his size, he employs brute power. Once he's angry, not only does he grow stronger, he's also a lot faster as well.
- Living Lava: While his outer body is metal, his internal biology is lava and he eats the stuff.
- Made of Indestructium: His metal body seems to be impervious to all attacks. Even Vegeta going all-out with his strongest attacks fails to cause even the slightest bit of damage. He and Toppo also traded blows as well without any serious consequences to the robot. That said, his durability does have its limits, as Kale was able to break apart the Bota Magetta combo in the anime, and in the manga, she knocked Magetta out while in a berserk rage.
- Mechanical Lifeforms: Despite being robotic in nature, he is an actual lifeform from an entire race of beings like him, though given he was chosen in particular, it's likely his power is unique to him, or at least his mastery and degree of the power is to him.
- Manchild: He's emotionally weak and loses his will to fight if insulted, something Whis only mentions after he is defeated.
- Magma Man: The guy seems to be a living geothermal power plant fueled by lava. He can also use this for offense. He's also capable of hardening it into an effective club.
- Mighty Glacier: As much as someone can be at the God-tier powers, anyway. He can neither fly, nor is he nimble, but he is incredibly heavy, extremely durable, and insanely strong.
- Misery Trigger: Despite how tough Magetta is, he and his race are apparently very sensitive, and insulting him will result in him crying and losing the will to fight.
- Nigh-Invulnerable: Literally nothing has ever been shown to physically harm him. Vegeta could neither hurt or even fatigue him during their battle, only winning by ring-out thanks to unintentionally exploiting his weakness to insults. During the Tournament of Power, he's briefly shown trading blows with Toppo, who fought Goku to a near-standstill, and shows up later no worse for wear.
- Not Quite Flight: Though he can't fly like practically every other fighter, he can jump very high.
- Odd Friendship: In episode 70, Botamo works together with Magetta to catch a baseball after it's thrown over Magetta in an attempt to keep it from being caught since he can't fly. This act of teamwork suggests that they became friends after the tournament as a result of Botamo comforting Magetta after his loss to Vegeta. Magetta is even the one to come to Botamo's aid against Vegeta during the Tournament of Power and even team up on him. Pretty odd pair, a bear and a metal man.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Magetta fought Toppo; and when he later arrived to save Botamo; showed no sign of injury or fatigue.
- Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: The dub adds robotic onomatopoeia to his vocabulary in top of his normal Catchphrase.
- Shout-Out: His name is a portmanteau of the mecha franchises Mazinger Z and Getter Robo.
- Smarter Than You Look: Champa, and Vegeta, both mistake him for being dim, due to his nature. He's smart enough to use his heat powers to give himself a Home Field Advantage and uses a mixture of his species' natural abilities to trigger a powerful explosion that nearly ring outs Vegeta.
- Superpower Lottery: His naturally hard metal body makes him immune to all of Vegeta's attacks, including the Galick Gun and Final Flash. His magma spit can even push back Vegeta's most powerful energy blasts. His ability to increase the heat of the area he's in is so great it can irritate a Saiyan Beyond God in a closed enough space, and his power increases with his anger. Because of all this, Magetta comes VERY close to defeating Super Saiyan Vegeta, nearly ringing him out twice after Vegeta knocked out Frost in a single punch. To note, he eventually gets so powerful that he's able to counter Vegeta's fully charged Final Flash and what managed to hit him only succeeded in stunning him for a few moments. To note, the last person who got hit by a fully charged Final Flash (Cell) was much stronger than Vegeta at the time and was badly wounded by a glancing blow. Vegeta ultimately only defeats him by ring out.
- Super Spit: He can spit up lava powerful enough to overpower base form Vegeta with enough force to actually hurt him(though Vegeta is able to stick his hand through some of this lava without burns, the increased osmosis seems to be the only hazard brought on by the heat). Powered up more, he managed to overpower Vegeta's Super Saiyan Galick Gun.
- Synthetic Voice Actor: In the English dub, he is voiced by a text-to-speech program.
- Unskilled, but Strong: His first moments show exactly how uncoordinated and clumsy a fighter he is, but what comes afterwards He also can't fly, something that most other characters in the franchise can do. Doesn't stop him from giving Vegeta trouble.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: He is the first opponent to truly challenge the Saiyans. Even as a Super Saiyan, Vegeta can't physically harm him and nearly loses by ring out, twice. Vegeta is forced to destroy part of the stage in order to win, although Goku says Vegeta could have easily won if he used his god ki, to which Vegeta responds he wasn't ready to reveal it to Hit yet.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Very durable and could even withstand Vegeta's Final Flash along with the punch afterwards, but he is quite sensitive emotionally. Vegeta calling him a piece of metal junk costs him the battle. He has Botamo cover his ears during the Tournament of Power, protecting him from Vegeta's insults. After Botamo is eliminated, he changes to using rocks to cover them. Vegeta destroys one of them and insults him, causing him to lose.
- Wrong Context Magic: He is one of the very few fighters to not use Ki Manipulation, and powers up completely differently than others do, using anger to amplify his molten lava and geothermal power. That said, the anime shows he has the same kind of Battle Aura every other ki users has, suggesting Magetta is simply ki in a less direct manner.
Cabba (キャベ, Kyabe)
A Saiyan from Universe 6 chosen by Champa to fight for him in the Universe 6 Tournament. Considered The Ace of the Sadala Defense Force and one of his race's best warriors. He fights Vegeta in the tournament and is the fourth opponent overall.
During his fight with Vegeta, he is taught how to transform into a Super Saiyan, and starts to declare Vegeta his master, which Vegeta tries to deny. He promised Vegeta to introduce him to Planet Sadala and its king one day.
- The Ace: He is the ace of the Saiyan Elite Unit, the Sadala Defense Force, according to his mentor Renso. While Overshadowed by Awesome by the standards of Goku, Vegeta or Hit, he was able to go toe to toe with base form Vegeta during the tournament between both universes. Even Caulifla holds him in high regard, especially after her transformation.Caulifla: Wow. Feels like I'm getting stronger by the second. I bet I could defeat you like this now.Cabba: [while sweating] You're more right about that than you know.
- Adaptational Badass: During the recruitment arc of the Tournament of Power, Cabba goes to enlist Caulifla's help in the upcoming tournament. In the anime, he doesn't even attempt to fight Caulifla and is made out to look weaker than both her and Kale, with the latter almost killing him after she went berserk. In the manga however, Cabba is given a far more dominant role as he easily trounces Caulifla once he turns Super Saiyan and earns her respect enough to convince to join the tournament.
- Zig-Zagged however, as during the actual tournament Cabba never manages to achieve Super Saiyan 2. However he arguably goes out in a more dignified manner, sacrificing himself to put the Potara earring on Kale's ear and throw her back into the ring before his universe's most powerful player got rung out, creating Kefla in the process.
- Adaptational Curves: Downplayed Trope, but still present in the manga. Cabba in the anime is drawn as a really slender guy, following Toriyama's actual style, while Toyotarō draws him with more muscle, especially in his legs. Compare Cabba here◊ with the cover of the manga◊ (Damn, he has legs).
- Adaptational Intelligence: A downplayed example. In the manga, Cabba is aware of the Saiyans having tails in the past, while in the anime, he is puzzled by the thought.
- A Death in the Limelight: Non-lethal version. After being Out of Focus during the Tournament of Power, episode 112 focuses entirely on him, his promise to Vegeta of taking him to meet Planet Sadala, and trying to defeat Monna in order to protect Caulifla and Kale. Said episode also has him obtaining Super Saiyan 2. After that, however, Frieza takes him out fueled by pure sadism.
- Anime Hair: Sports a hairstyle similar to Gohan's during the Buu Saga.
- Badass Adorable: In short stature, kind-heart, shyness towards women and good-manners, Cabba's character design style is closer to that of an "adorable little brother" archetype from a Shoujo Anime... in power on the other hand he is blow for blow a match for Vegeta.
- Badass Baritone: He has a surprisingly deep voice when angry/serious, especially when factoring in his tiny frame. Though most of the time it is still soft and gentle, befitting the "sweet little brother" character type of his design.
- Beat Them at Their Own Game: The entire reason Cabba was chosen to take part in the tournament. Champa saw that Beerus had Goku and Vegeta, so he went to find some powerful Saiyans of his own.
- Berserk Button: Threaten those dear to him.
- During the Tournament between Beerus and Champa, Cabba was pretty much willing to give up during his fight with Vegeta. However, Vegeta threatening to blow up Planet Sadala and kill his family was his limit, and allowed him to turn Super Saiyan.
- What made him angry enough to go Super Saiyan 2 was Monna insulting Vegeta as well as Caulifla and Kale, while also threatening to dispatch them after she dealt with him. Both Monna and Frieza's threats to attack Caulifla and Kale made him furious.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: He like all Saiyans aged slower than humans, staying in their prime until they're eighty. He can also transform into a Super Mode.
- Blood Knight: Although the Saiyans in U6 are not Space Pirates like their U7 counterparts, they are still considered a warrior race who loves to fight. They just use their power to protect people from evil instead of terrorizing them, much like Goku.
- Broken Pedestal: He is surprised and heartbroken when he learns that Frost was Evil All Along, and used him and the other Saiyans to do his dirty work.
- Bully Hunter: The Saiyans of U6 are an entire race of this. Cabba is horrified when he hears that the Saiyans in U7 used to steal planets. When Vegeta tries to justify it as natural since the Saiyans are a warrior race, Cabba counters that as a warrior race they shouldn't be stealing planets since the Saiyans in his universe fight against such people.
- Didn't See That Coming: He is shocked when he sees Super Saiyan Goku during the match against Botamo. He has never heard of a Super Saiyan before, let alone seen one. He didn't even know Saiyans could transform.
- Dub Name Change: Played with. His name is rendered as "Kyabe" on the Latin American Spanish dub, but that's the pronunciation of "Cabba" in the original Japanese, anyway.
- Edible Theme Naming: Like other Saiyans, Cabba's name is a pun on a vegetable, "cabbage" in this case.
- Fragile Speedster: Is very fast and can pack a punch, but tires easily and seemed to have a hard time against Vegeta's more brutish fighting style. One gut-punch from a Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta knocks him out entirely.
- Foil: Cabba and his relationship with Vegeta brings to mind other characters.
- Cabba and Vegeta relationship at first glance is similar to that of Piccolo and Gohan, but, the devil lies in the details: when Piccolo took on Gohan, he was still a villain who wished to conquer the world, while Gohan served as his Morality Pet to slowly change him. Cabba, however, doesn't really change anything but allowed a reformed Vegeta show how much he had improved as a character in the way he treats another Saiyan (especially since Cabba shares the same name pun as Nappa). Their relationship is also more distant, with Vegeta being the equivalent of a wise warrior who taught Cabba something he will never forget, while Piccolo is more of a father figure to Gohan.
- If you want to expand it, to Tarble. Both are kind-hearted Saiyans who admire Vegeta, but Tarble was a grown adult considered a weakling whom Vegeta doesn't even have an interest in, while Cabba is a young Saiyan and considered among the strongest of his race (he could hold his own against base form Vegeta for a while), and Vegeta treats him as a disciple... in his own way, mind you.
- The Gift: Cabba is very powerful for a Saiyan who has no Godly ki. He is able to fight evenly with Vegeta while they are both in base form, despite Vegeta having obtained Godly ki through training with Whis. Vegeta actually admits Cabba could surpass him, and even encourages him to do so.
- Golden Super Mode: Notably lacks the ability to go Super Saiyan. At first, anyway. Vegeta manages to help him awaken it during their fight. He gets Super Saiyan 2 during the Universal Survival Saga.Cabba: This... this is Super Saiyan, the power awoken from intense anger... Vegeta... he was saying those horrible things to stir up these feelings in me. I'll remember what he taught me, and fight with everything I have!
- Good Counterpart:
- Somewhat implied to be the Universe 6 version of Vegeta, given their shared fighting stance and the fact that their techniques are similar. Cabba even uses a ki blast that is basically identical in appearance to Vegeta's signature Galick Gun. That said, he does mention to Vegeta that the Saiyans' king is a very proud man who reminds him of him.
- He also qualifies as a semi-counterpart to Nappa. Both Cabba and Nappa have their names derived from "cabbage" (the English word for the former, a type of a Chinese cabbage for the latter). In the manga, Vegeta even prepares to kill Cabba with the same move he used to kill Nappa in DBZ (only he isn't really trying to kill him, but instead get Cabba angry enough to become a Super Saiyan). Not to mention that Nappa was subservient to Vegeta - the Saiyan prince - and in the anime Cabba mentions that Vegeta's pride is similar to the U6 King of the Saiyans, implying that Cabba is subservient to him. Also interesting to note is that the way Vegeta treats Cabba is completely the reverse of the way he treated Nappa: where Vegeta eventually deemed Nappa not worthy of living and killed him while they were fighting for the same cause, Vegeta actually goes out of his way to be sporting and encouraging to Cabba during their match against each other.
- Heel Realization: While he was never even remotely evil, Cabba never realized he was being used for evil until the tournament by Frost. Afterwards, he tells the authorities everything about Frost's true colors, making him a wanted fugitive.
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: He briefly spouts a line with this in mind (before attempting to rile up Kale), leaning more towards his inability to effectively insult others:Cabba: I, the unworthy Cabba, shall taunt you!
- The Knights Who Say "Squee!": He's a well regarded celebrity and hero throughout Universe 6, and after Beerus and Champa's tournament he looks up to Vegeta and calls him "Teacher". He also looked up to Frost before it was revealed that Frost was a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing.
- Know When to Fold 'Em: He tries to surrender while Vegeta is beating him up. This makes Vegeta angrier, who berates him for giving up. Vegeta then changes tack to find his Berserk Button.
- Meaningful Name: Cabba comes from the same pun as Nappa, Vegeta's bodyguard and sidekick during his Planet Trade days. Knowing the stark contrast between the two's interactions with Vegeta helps demonstrate the change in the Saiyan prince's character, as well as the difference between Universe 6 and 7's Saiyan cultures.
- More Expendable Than You: He fights Monna in place of Caulifla because Caulifla and Kale stand a much better chance of winning the tournament once they're rested than he does. Which is later revealed to be due to them being the trump card via the Potara Fusion.
- Muscles Are Meaningless: Has exactly no sign of muscle or toning on his entire body, but is considered to be one of the strongest warriors in Universe 6. He doesn't disappoint, except for the fact that he's unable to transform originally. Once Vegeta pretended to threaten the livelihoods of those he love, Cabba unlocked his Super Saiyan transformation in a fit of anger.
- Nice Guy: Is actually rather pleasant and peaceful, gladly explaining things about Universe 6 Saiyans to Vegeta, and even agreeing to let him see the Saiyan Homeworld in Universe 6 one day. It's even difficult for him to say mean things in general, as seen when trying to make Caulifla angry enough to go Super Saiyan - Cabba can barely say the (rather mild) insults period, let alone with sincerity or actual harshness. When he's truly angry however, you can expect these traits to fly out the window, as seen against Vegeta (briefly) and Monna.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Aside from his hairstyle, he physically looks quite different than just about every other Saiyan seen in the series. Despite his definite fighting prowess, he's almost completely devoid of muscle definition, far thinner the U7's Saiyans like Vegeta's brother Tarble, or Trunks and Goten who are human-hybrid children. Also notable, his eyes are in a thin design similar to Android's 17 and 18 that, while have been seen on Saiyans in the past, were never before seen on a Super Saiyan.
- Odd Friendship: A Bully Hunter who is friends with the leader of a gang of delinquents. That isn't even including his relationship with Vegeta.
- Off-Model: In the anime, there is a inconsistency with Cabba's eyebrows. As you can see above, Cabba's eyebrows inexplicably grow once he turns Super Saiyan, which shouldn't happen. The manga doesn't have this inconsistency.
- Older Than They Look: Cabba's age has never been clarified, but he looks to be around 10 or 12 years old. In reality, he is an adult, as he is part of the defense forces for his planet, has taken part in wars and one of the strongest fighters in his universe, and can drive a space ship, things you won't let a kid do.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: One of the strongest warriors of Universe 6, and can go toe to toe with Vegeta in his base form, even after his years training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber and with Whis. However, he falls behind compared to Vegeta and Goku since he can't transform even into a basic Super Saiyan until Vegeta shows him how. In the Universal Survival Saga, minutes after teaching Caulifla and Kale how to transform into Super Saiyans, both gain even more powerful forms. They didn't even know that those forms even existed. He does figure out how to access Super Saiyan 2 during the Tournament of Power, but takes heavy damage before doing so and is easy pickings for Frieza, who even against Super Saiyan 2 only felt the need to power up to his Golden form to No-Sell his attacks and ring him out.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He is a Saiyan who is very small in stature. He is shorter than Vegeta and is around the same height of Frost's first form. At the same time, he is also one of the strongest fighters in Universe 6, able to go toe-to-toe with Vegeta's base form and evenly matches Vegeta's Super Saiyan form after he ascends. According to Xenoverse 2, Cabba is as tall as GT Pan, who we need to remind you is only 10 years old.
- Punch! Punch! Punch! Uh Oh...: After accidentally awakening Kale's Berserker form, Cabba desperately has to defend himself against her bloodthirst. At one point, after blocking Berserk Kale's furry of blows, he tries to retaliate with a strong punch into her chest. It doesn't help in the slightest, leaving him open to a fully charged counterattack.
- Skilled, but Naïve: Being a Saiyan, he's a natural fighting prodigy. He's even able to keep up with Vegeta before he transforms, and this is after Vegeta had trained with both Goku and Whis. However it's pretty clear he doesn't have anywhere near the battle experience that Goku or Vegeta have, not even being able to use the Super Saiyan transformation, an ascension that Goku, Vegeta and their sons learned and mastered years before they met Cabba. However, part of that is because Cabba didn't even know that such a thing as Super Saiyan even existed. Once he does, he quickly becomes one himself and is able to maintain it better than Vegeta and Gohan when they first transformed.
- Superpower Lottery: He's a minor example. Although he was unable to go Super Saiyan initially, his base form is equal to Vegeta, after he has been training with Whis and trained in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber for three years, which makes him many times stronger than the next strongest Saiyan, Gohan. After Vegeta beats him up and pushes him to his Rage-Breaking Point, he ascends to Super Saiyan, and during his battle with Monna, hitting it again lets him reach Super Saiyan 2.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
- He bears a passing resemblance to Tarble, Vegeta's little brother from the OVA Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!, and even shares the "little brother-big brother" dynamic with Vegeta, with Cabba acting more or less like a stand-in for him in Super.
- While he still has his own quirks, during the Universal Survival saga of the anime, Cabba starts to share traits associated with Gohan. Being the mentor of a Hot-Blooded girl (Like Gohan with Videl), a rude mentor (Vegeta instead of Piccolo), and turning Super Saiyan 2, and during his Day in the Limelight, sharing some visual shots associated with Gohan in both occasions he gained a new power. Makes you wonder if he, by any chance, is Gohan's Alternate Self.
- Teach Him Anger: When he asks Vegeta to teach him the Super Saiyan transformation, Vegeta threatens him and his family until his anger finally grows enough to trigger it. He tries this for Caulifla, but he's too nice and she's already short-tempered, so he resorts to a technical explanation. Both then try to repeat this tactic when teaching Kale on how to hone in on her Super Saiyan potential. The results are a bit too effective.
- The Unchosen One: Gives off this impression once the other two Saiyans on his team appear: while he's certainly strong, there's nothing much special about Cabba compared to Caulifla and Kale's latent talent. Vegeta probably could have taught them how to transform as well; he simply happened to meet him first and ask about it. Even after unlocking Super Saiyan 2, he's still weaker than both Caulifla and Kale since Caulifla and Cabba both believed that she could defeat him if they both fought as Super Saiyans, and Kale is much stronger than Caulifla.
- Tranquil Fury: After getting pushed to the breaking point by Monna's sadistic taunting, he proceeds to go Super Saiyan 2 and unleash a nasty Curb-Stomp Battle to her before blasting her out of the ring without uttering a single word, and with only a livid Death Glare to show that he is utterly furious.
- Took a Level in Badass: Cabba is already a badass since he is able to match Vegeta's base form even after he trained with Whis for almost two years and got an additional three years of training inside the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. He, however, falls behind Vegeta since he can't become a Super Saiyan, not even knowing that the form existed until he saw Goku transform. After Vegeta purposely pushes him to his Rage-Breaking Point he ascends and gives Super Saiyan Vegeta a run for his money. He is then one-shotted by Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta to show how much farther he can go and the levels he can achieve if he trains hard enough. In episode 112, he unlocks the Super Saiyan 2 form.
- Vague Age: Cabba's age is never said during the series, but he appears to be older than he looks. By all accounts, he was considered The Ace of the Sadala Force, and is able to drive a space-ship as a soldier, things that a kid wouldn't be able to do, but by Saiyans' standards, this is unknown. Xenoverse 2's Tournament of Champa saga had many lines of dialogue from Trunks stating him as "full of potential" and young, meaning he can't be older than 16. note
- Unstoppable Rage: Briefly when he turns Super Saiyan for the first time and in that space of time manages to keep up with Vegeta despite him being in the same transformation.
- We Help the Helpless: Like all Universe 6 Saiyans, Cabba isn't a planet thief, he is a hero who saves other people from evil. He makes it a point to say that since the Saiyans are a warrior race, they should use their power to protect people, not steal planets.
- Weak, but Skilled: Unlike the other Saiyans of his universe, Cabba lacks the raw power and rage that fuels Kale, while not having the same raw talent that Caulifla has. However, while he is not as strong as they, Cabba is shown to be quite skilled in combat, having the training of the Sadala Forces to help him stand against Vegeta, and other more powerful fighters. Renso even refers to him as being very skilled and he was able to do well in the Tournament of Power.
- What the Hell, Hero?:
- He has this reaction when Vegeta nonchalantly reveals that the Saiyans in U7 stole a planet when they destroyed their original homeworld with in-fighting. When Vegeta says it's normal since they're a warrior race, Cabba shoots back that is exactly why they shouldn't be stealing planets.
- He has another one after he finds out that Frost has been cheating by poisoning his opponents. He then finds out this is Frost's true character.
Caulifla (カリフラ, Karifura)
A Saiyan woman from Planet Sadala, and the younger sister of Renso. She is a delinquent, but also a fighting genius. She joins the Universe 6 team for the Tournament of Power. Considered a key player in the Tournament of Power for Universe 6.
- The Ace: While she is not a member of Sadala's army unlike Cabba, in the manga she proves her worth as being The Dreaded, a prodigy that even the members of the Sadala army fear to mess with. During her fight with Frieza, Frieza states that she as a Super Saiyan is miles stronger than Goku was the first time he transformed, putting her on a whole different league. She, however, is still weaker than Golden Frieza, and vastly weaker than Kale.
- Ambiguously Bi: On one hand, the source of Kale's rage towards Cabba, and Caulifla's response, suggests that Caulifla's interested in men. On the other hand, her Pseudo-Romantic Friendship with Kale comes off as deeper than merely being teacher and student, or boss and underling.
- Action Girl: One of the 14 female fighters for the Tournament of Power for Universe 6, Caulifla is a Saiyan girl with immense potential, so much she got the way to transform into Super Saiyan very easy. She, Kale, and Ribrianne are also the most promoted characters in promotional material like Dragon Ball Heroes outside of Jiren.
- Adaptational Jerkass: Her softer qualities like her confidence in Kale are all but absent in the manga at first, but her caring side towards Kale shows up once Kale loses control of her powers.
- In the anime she never even speaks to Magetta. In the manga, she insults him for no reasons, almost making him forfeit the tournament.
- Adaptational Wimp: Suffers this in the manga. In the anime, she was clearly made out to be stronger than Cabba in terms of raw power, and as a Super Saiyan 2 is roughly on par with a controlled Berserk Kale. In the manga, Cabba easily trounces her once he goes Super Saiyan. Caulifla also doesn't master the Super Saiyan 2 as easily as she does in the anime, and later when she fights Frieza, Frieza toys with her in his final form, and Golden Form with ease. That said her base form is much stronger than Cabba's and she gains the Super Saiyan form off screen which she mentions was rather easy to achieve. While Caulifla in the anime managed a few people, she never eliminates a single person except Gohan as Kefla. Said trope ends up being responsible for her elimination: Kefla in the manga is significantly less powerful because Caulifla herself is much weaker.
- Adaptation Relationship Overhaul:
- Her dynamic with Kale in the manga. In the anime, the two are the best of friends and clearly care for one another, their relationship being a student/teacher dynamic, with Kale having an implied crush on her. In the manga, while Caulifla still has a bit of respect for Kale, their relationship isn't as close as it is in the anime, with Caulifla treating her more like a subordinate while Kale sees her more as a sister. It can best be seen in how Kale was recruited into the tournament. In the anime, Caulifla made Kale's involvement a stipulation for her agreeing to fight, while in the manga she is somewhat surprised, even annoyed, that Cabba brought her along. Though once she sees how strong Kale is, she is visibly proud of her and she's greatly concerned for Kale's safety once told Kale could be destroyed by her own power.
- In the manga, her relationship with Goku is entirely omitted and they don't even interact much less fight each other during the tournament.
- Anime Hair: An even more exaggerated spiky hairstyle than most of the Saiyan characters. If most Saiyans have pineapple hair, she has Lavos hair.
- Anti-Villain: Unlike her law-serving older brother Renso, Cabba, or a good portion of her race, she's a crass, troublemaking tomboy who runs an underground group of Saiyan delinquents. That said, she's surprisingly tamed in her fighting style and behavior towards allies. Compared to the other fighters, some comprising of sadists and tricksters, Caulifla prefers the straight thrill of battle without the need for underhanded moves.
- Badass Adorable: She may be the leader of a gang of delinquents, but she can look absolutely adorable when she's happy or excited. She's also extremely powerful.
- Bare Your Midriff: She only wears a low-cut magenta top with baggy purple pants, and the top doesn't cover much more than her chest.
- Benevolent Boss: Kale, specifically, is one underling she cares deeply about in terms of her well-being, due to being her personal student. The rest of her gang, to a lesser extent, aren't blatantly mistreated by her, and they respect her back without a second thought.
- Berserk Button: Don't ever harm Kale right in front of her or she will go ballistic. Universe 10 learned this the hard way. Cabba was lucky as he only got yelled at for making Kale cry.
- Big Eater: Her first scene introduces her biting down on a hunk of meat. Once Cabba meets with her, she is still eating it.
- Breast Expansion: Her Ultra Saiyan form includes a few cup sizes with all that muscle, and the camera even focuses on her chest when it happens just in case we didn't get the hint.
- Calling Your Attacks: Crush Cannon!
- Combat Pragmatist: Caulifla is a street fighter, not a refined martial artist. Thus, she has no problems fighting dirty. During her rematch with Goku, she fakes him out by pretending to fire a Ki blast only to punch Goku in the gut while he's distracted.
- Curb-Stomp Battle:
- While she and Kale were giving a fatigued Goku a run for his money as a Super Saiyan 2, once he turns Super Saiyan God, it quickly becomes apparent that Caulifla is completely outmatched as it only takes a single punch and a ki blast from Super Saiyan God Goku to bring her down.
- In the manga, Frieza effortlessly toys with her, even when she goes Super Saiyan.
- Determinator: Kasheral's Pride Troopers squadron having her on the ropes, forcing her to tank damage futilely to protect Kale? Jiren taking out her universe's greatest fighter, Hit, crippling their survivability? Caulifla acknowledged the dangers of both situations, but doesn't allow either to ruin her moral to fight until the end. Plus, for the sake of keeping Kale's morale up, she has to maintain this attitude.
- Distaff Counterpart: Seems to be the Universe 6 equivalent to Goku.
- Both have a tendency to be very, very rude and direct, both due to having No Social Skills.
- Both are among the few members of the Saiyan race who aren't affiliated with a Galactic organization.
- They also have older brothers and are affiliated with another Saiyan who has a meek personality masking incredible power (Gohan and Kale). As a sort of Call-Back, her scene◊ holding a depowered Kale is the same as Goku holding Gohan, with a proud look on their faces.
- Likewise, both are geniuses at combat, with an ability to learn very fast. Caulifla learned the Super Saiyan 2 transformation by accident! The key difference is that while Goku was a Token Good Teammate to his Saiyan race, Caulifla is something of a Token Evil Teammate to hers.Caulifla: Get real. We're deciding on who's the strongest of all the universes.
Goku: The strongest of all the universes, huh? So you're just like me.
- Like Goku, Caulifla enjoys taking on fighters that are much stronger than even her. When faced with an intimidating challenge, she approaches it with enthusiasm. This is notable, in that while most Saiyans have no issue fighting somebody of equal or lower strength (moreso lower), they tend to lose a ton of confidence when going up against someone stronger. Goku and Caulifla are the exceptions.
- Both Saiyans have No Sense of Personal Space when they are both very excited. Caulifla has a tendency to do this when she finds a new Super Saiyan transformation she never saw before, and Goku gets this when he finds out there's a strong opponent nearby or hears about them.
- Her relation with Kale is the complete opposite of Goku and Broly, however. While Broly hated Kakarot with a burning passion over simplistic motives, Kale adores Caulifla as her big sis, to overprotective terms. While Goku never gave Broly a thought, Caulifla also loves her, thinking of her as her protegee, and trying to make her know she is better than she thinks. Goku was a trigger to Broly's Unstoppable Rage, while Caulifla is the opposite to Kale, calming her down from her transformation (and Kale never tries to attack Caulifla while transformed).
- Much like Vegeta unexpectedly became the teacher for Cabba during their battle, Goku ends up becoming the teacher for Caulifla when they battle.
- Edible Theme Naming: Like all Saiyans, her name is taken from a vegetable, cauliflower.
- Even the Girls Want Her: It is implied that her disciple Kale has feelings for her.
- Fearless Fool: She tends to jump into battle, fueled by her Saiyan battle lust, and fight opponents that can be varying degrees above her.
- To Paragus, Broly's father from the Non-Serial movies. While Broly saved Paragus when he was a baby, Paragus decided to use his power for universal conquest through mind control. Caulifla, however, treats Kale very well, encouraging her and telling her how proud she is of her.
- To Goku, they share many similarities, they are both big eaters, they both love to fight and both help another Saiyan with a meek personality and that hides incredible power (Gohan and Kale respectively).
- Genki Girl: Despite her status as leader of a gang, she is quite energetic and nice to hang around, especially around Kale.Caulifla: Go on—give it a shot! Just make your back tingle with power, and then you pop—PAH!
- The Gift:
- Renso describes her as even more talented than himself, and it shows. She is able to achieve Super Saiyan without using anger, only needing Cabba to describe to her how the transformation feels in order to replicate it. She's also the first canon female Super Saiyan introduced (Kale's berserk Super Saiyan state form being shown in previews before Caulifla's introduction). She later unlocks Super Saiyan 2 by accident in order to prevent a crazed Kale from killing Cabba, and is able to master it just by seeing Goku demonstrate it. This also applies to her fighting technique.
- Though she starts out as a simple brawler that Goku can easily outmaneuver, simply seeing him exploit her weaknesses is enough to refine her technique.
- Good Old Fisticuffs: Whis pointed out that Caulfila's fighting style is akin to street brawling. While she got a few scruffy hits on Goku at first, Caulifla is quickly outpaced by Goku's martial artist training and experience. It's only when she quickly adapted and evolved her combative skills to mirror Goku's own, that the two Saiyans became reasonably on par with each other.
- Handshake Refusal: She slaps Goku's hand aside when he introduces himself, as they're about to engage in a battle with all the universes at stake. Goku is actually impressed, noting that she's like himself.
- Impossible Hourglass Figure: Just look at her belly and waist◊.
- Instant Expert: Most likely helped by already being incredibly strong, but turning Super Saiyan was fairly easy for her. In fact, she is the only Saiyan not in emotional distress prior to transforming. She even instinctively moves up to Super Saiyan 2 without any training. However, as episode 100 revealed while she can access it she cannot control it as easily, requiring a bit of help from Goku, and even then she's nowhere near the level to access Super Saiyan Blue even if she wants the transformation, as Goku states (though he also notes she might easily reach Super Saiyan 3 during the tournament at her rate).
- Japanese Delinquent: Caulifla, a gang leader herself, appears to be dressed closely to a bosozoku. Her preferred pose is a yanki zuwari, or yankee squat, which is commonly seen among delinquent youths.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Caulifla has no problem proving her rude superiority towards others, as demonstrated by her initial interactions with Cabba and Goku. Yet, at the same time, she's quick to come to like them, becoming friends with Cabba after he helps her transform, and coming to see Goku as a mentor after seeing his strength.
- The Knights Who Say "Squee!": She can get overly excited when it comes to learning the Super Saiyan forms. She's all over Cabba and Goku to teach her Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 2, respectively. It's worth noting that, in the latter case, she was supposed to be fighting Goku at the time (not that Goku was any better about that).Goku: Not bad. You might achieve the Super Saiyan 3 transformation at this rate.
Caulifla: (excited) There's a [Super Saiyan] three?!
- Know When to Fold 'Em:
- While she was stubborn about the idea at first, Caulifla dropped her nearsighted tussle with Universe 4's Monna after being persuaded by Cabba and Kale.
- Along with Kale, Caulifla was given a pair of Potara earrings to use as a last resort against an enemy they couldn't defeat. The fact that Caulifla immediately suggested using them to Kale after taking that beating from Super Saiyan God Goku indicates that she realized rather quickly that she had absolutely no chance of defeating him in her Super Saiyan 2 state even with Kale's help, and that fusion was their only hope.
- Let Me at Him!: Her general attitude towards opponents, like Monna and the Pride Troopers, after they instigated a fight against her and Kale.
- Little Miss Badass: She is around Cabba's size, but she's said to be the strongest Saiyan woman in Universe 6. Once she's taught how to transform, she quickly surpasses him.
- Male Gaze: When accessing the Third Grade Transformation, the camera briefly focuses on her rather nicely endowed chest. If that's not enough, her rematch against Goku has a few shots of her butt-crack/lower back dimples.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: She is the hot-blooded delinquent type, with the polite Cabba, who is a member of his planet's defense forces.
- Mythology Gag: Caulifla's techniques share the same sound effect as the original Broly but speed up, with keeping with his inspiration to Kale. As seen here. These sounds effects are shared with Kale and Kefla.
- Morality Chain: Has to be one for Kale after she nearly tries to kill Cabba when she unlocks her berserk Super Saiyan state.
- Muscles Are Meaningless:
- Her thin figure is deceptively strong, which she showcases quite well during her fight with Napapa, an opponent more than twice her size as she stops him dead cold when he tries to charge her over the edge, and then lifts and slams him out of the ring. Considering she's a Saiyan it's not too surprising, as members of the race are known to possess incredible, physical strength.
- This mentality is invoked when she tries to demonstrate her Super Saiyan Grade III form against Goku, bulking up her upper body considerably. However, after Goku easily evaded and tired Caulifla out of the form, he quickly advised her that the temporary muscle mass and strength isn't worth the speed and stability cost.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Like Cabba, she is pretty different from the Saiyans in Universe 7. Her eyes are similar to his, and her figure is slim, almost lacking muscle.
- Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: She's one of the strongest Saiyans in Universe 6, as well one of its strongest warriors, but next to Goku and Vegeta, she's not anything special. Eventually, she gets overwhelmed and is forced to hide in a random corner of the ring with Kale to recover for some time while everyone else keeps duking it out.
- No Sense of Personal Space: She tends to talk real close to people, with complaining to Cabba to his face, encouraging Kale deep close, and even gushing over Goku showing her Super Saiyan 2 form. This actually triggers jealousy in Kale due to thinking she and Cabba have something, which isn't the case.
- Pet the Dog: Caulifla's a rude and violent delinquent who runs a gang, but the way she treats Kale shows a much softer side to her. She loves her student, believes she has the potential to be a great fighter, hates saying anything bad about her, and gets very protective of her when she believes Cabba goes too far with his insults towards her.
- In the manga, Adaptational Jerkass aside, Kale revealed to Cabba that Caulifla's gang members were once street urchins that she took in.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Tiny like Cabba, but Renso claims she's even stronger than he was before the injury. This is highlighted greatly in her brief match against the towering sumo Napapa. Despite Napapa's fighting stance taking full advantage of corner spacing and overpowering opponents with his girth, the smaller Caulifla managed to suplex him off the arena boundaries.
- Purple Is Powerful: She wears baggy purple pants and is considered quite prodigiously formidable based on her older brother's voucher. It also helps that she was able to attain and maintain Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 2 forms within a day.
- Red Is Violent: Caulifla's ki blasts, specifically her "Crush Cannon", have a ruby coloring.
- Refusal of the Call: She refused Cabba's offer to join the Tournament of Power, even after Cabba told her about the stakes. She starts to consider changing her mind once she sees Cabba going Super Saiyan. After obtaining the Super Saiyan transformation, she told Cabba that she will only enter if Kale also enters.
- She Is Not My Girlfriend: Caulifla had to tell Kale in her powered state that she doesn't see anything in Cabba.Caulifla: Look, Kale. If you're actually feeling jealous, let me stop you right there! You think my standards are so low I'd be attracted to this little dweeb? Come on, you mean the universe to me! Nobody could ever come between the two of us!
- Skilled, but Naïve: Caulifla possesses tremendous talent and is acknowledged as being a fighting genius that is able to learn and master the various stages of Super Saiyan in a very short amount of time, obtaining both Super Saiyan 1 and Super Saiyan 2 within 48 hours. Just like Cabba, however, it's blatantly obvious that due to her lack of experience when compared to that of Goku and Vegeta, who have been Super Saiyans for at least a decade, she's very slow in realizing the disadvantages of using the different Super Saiyan forms, requiring Goku to literally spell it out for her that the bulky Super Saiyan Third Grade form she tried to use was useless because of its pitiful speed.Goku: If you can't beat my Afterimage Technique, you'll never obtain Super Saiyan 3.
- Smug Snake: Starts crossing into this territory from Smug Super as time passes on. While she's pretty strong, it becomes clear that she's overshadowed by many other fighters in the Tournament of Power. That doesn't stop her from strutting around and challenging people way out of her league.
- Smug Super: She is very confident in her abilities, especially when she unlocks her Super Saiyan form. note As a result, she doesn't hesitate to snark positively about them or belittle her foes as being "wimps" or "losers". This is very much a common trait among Universe 7 Saiyans.
- Sore Loser: When Goku eliminates Kefla and she defuses, Caulifla promises to pound Goku one day.
- Spirited Competitor: Her motive for fighting in the Tournament of Power is to find out "who's the strongest in all the universes", and she's very invested in proving that point herself.
- Temporary Bulk Change: Caulifla manages to access the Super Saiyan Third Grade 'form' in Episode 100, bulking up her upper body drastically in the vein of Future Trunks' usage of the form, with added Breast Expansion to boot since she's female. Just like Future Trunks, however, it sacrifices speed and stamina for power, which Goku is quick to school her on. She instead switches to Super Saiyan 2 on his recommendation.
- Theme Naming: Like all Saiyans, is named after a vegetable, in this case cauliflower.
- Tomboy: She follows the street gang leader archetype.
- Tsundere: Subverted. Kale mistakes Caulifla as having this relationship with Cabba, triggering her transformation and causing her to try and kill him. Caulifla than explains that she just sees him as a new friend.
- Vague Age: She appears to be of the similar age as Cabba, meaning she is possibly a teenager. Yet, her age is still pretty vague, and many lines have Cabba call her "miss Caulifla", which can mean either courtesy or acknowledging her as older.
- Underestimating Badassery:
- She doesn't think much of the Universe 11 Pride Troopers, mocking the Universe 7 Saiyans for showing fear when they sense their power. Seeing Jiren take out Kale in one hit partially absolves her of that misconception.
- Ironically, she and Kale were on the receiving end of this by Kahseral's squadron, even after witnessing their abilities to be a tad troublesome. Caulifla and a controlled Kale managed to overpower three of the five members in Kahseral's squadron in a beam struggle, with Androids #17 and #18 taking care of rest with similar ease.
- She, as a byproduct of not being able to sense God Ki, made the mistake of underestimating Super Saiyan God Goku and (along with Kale) just assumed he changed colors. Goku is very quick to teach them that the power of Super Saiyan God is in an entirely different league than Super Saiyan 2 or even 3 as he effortlessly toys with both Kale and Caulifla, with the latter clutching her stomach in much pain after just a single punch to the gut from him.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Whis states this is Caulifla's main flaw. She is more a street brawler than an actual martial artist, and in a fight with Goku, she does have trouble with the experience the latter has. That said, she's very quick to adapt.
- Use Your Head: She did a flying headbutt to a metal robot from Team Universe 3. Caulifla showed no pain, while Koitsukai felt the contrary.
Dr. Rota (Dr.ロタ, Dokutā Rota)
A red boar who's a fighter for Universe 6.
- Butt-Monkey: In episode 106, he gets knocked out by Hamira and Prum before he can fight Gohan and Piccolo. He later recovers and goes after Prum to get his revenge, only for them both to be ringed out by Vegeta. He doesn't even get a chance to show his power, and never gets to reveal his special ability.
- Casting Gag: In Latin America, he is voiced by the same actor as Pumba, an iconic red boar character.
- Catchphrase: "Let me show you why I, Dr. Rota, am called Doctor. My ability is-"
- Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: He repeatedly tries to boast about his special ability, but gets interrupted each time.
- Genius Bruiser: A doctor who is also one of the 10 most powerful beings in his universe (or at least one of the 10 most powerful beings that could be found in his universe within the 48 hours before the tournament). He never gets to show his power though, thanks to Prum, Hamira, and Vegeta. Episode 106 implies that he might not really be an actual doctor though, as he states that his (unrevealed) technique is supposed to show people why they call him Doctor Rota.
- Idiot Ball: He stands right out in the open boasting of his special ability to Piccolo and Gohan. Prum and Harmira shoot him mid-speech. When he wakes up, he tracks down Prum looking for revenge and makes the same speech, while Prum was in the middle of a fight with Vegeta and Goku. Vegeta shoots him mid-speech, again, this time knocking him out of the ring. Doctor he may be, but Einstein he ain't.
- Joke Character: His only purpose in the series is to pretty much be Universe 6's jabroni.
- Mad Scientist: Given his spectacles, and the fact that he's called Doctor Rota, but is apparently not a normal doctor, if he's even a real doctor at all, this is likely.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: His ill-advised attempt to get revenge on Prum for attacking him not only got him eliminated by Vegeta, but also allowed Vegeta to eliminate Prum in the same shot by using Rota as a meat shield to avoid Prum's Energy Absorption.
- Not That Kind of Doctor: It's implied that he's not a normal doctor, or even a real doctor at all, and that it's just a title, as he says that his special technique is supposed to show why people call him Doctor Rota.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: He's at least powerful enough to be a part of the Universe 6 team, and was able to grapple with Prum, showing that he does indeed have some fighting prowess. He's an insect compared to Vegeta though, who rings him out with a Galick Gun in base form.
- Pig Man: Looks like a red pig boar with a black mohawk.
- Specs of Awesome: Wears a pair of glasses and is fighting for the Tournament of Power, so Champa (or whoever recruited him) is really confident in his abilities.
- Talking Is a Free Action: Subverted. His current opponent allows him to speak, only for the ones he's not paying attention to blast him mid-speech.
- The Unreveal: He states that he has a special technique, but he gets taken out before we learn what it is. He says that it's supposed to show why people call him Doctor Rota. The manga does nothing to him at all, just simply knocking him out off-screen. They do, however, state that he has some sort of magic when Champa questions him on his off-screen defeat.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Taken out before he has any chance to fight in the anime. We never got to find out why people call him Doctor Rota. In the manga, he does absolutely nothing. We don't even know how he got eliminated. He just appears at the Universe 6 bench after Frost eliminates Krillin.
Saonel (サオネル, Saoneru)
One of the two Namekians participating in the Tournament of Power for Universe 6.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: He and Pilina are outright shown at the beginning of the Tournament of Power in the manga, and they're shown fighting Napapa from Universe 10.
- Demoted to Extra: In the manga, he appears only a few times in the background before Kale throws him out while in her berserk state.
- Determinator: Caught between a beam struggle from Gohan's Kamehameha and Pilina's Breath Weapon, Saonel manages to push through the two energy waves and grapple with Gohan despite the enormous force he's tanking.
- Combat Pragmatist: Has no issues attacking a weakened Goku from behind, but seem to challenge Gohan and Piccolo to a fair fight.
- Early-Bird Cameo: His existence is known by a magazine scan, yet he's shown in the godPad in Episode 102. Not even Universe 4's "hidden warriors" are shown like this. He and Pilina are also shown fighting with Universe 3 warriors in Episode 101.
- Fusion Dance: The source of both his and Pilina's great power. Upon learning about the tournament, a massive number of Namekians let themselves be absorbed by them for the sake of victory.
- Laser Blade: Can create an energy blade with his energy, similar to Zamasu and Kahseral.
- Last Stand: In the anime only. He is one of the last two fighters for Universe 6, so he has to defeat Piccolo and Gohan or his entire universe will be wiped out.
- Power Incontinence: At first, he and Pilina explain that they were waiting on the sidelines for their bodies to stabilize from fusing with so many others.
- Smug Super: The first picture we see of him is a smug smile, and he's quite the powerhouse if Champa/Vados are confident enough to put him in the Tournament of Power.
- Theme Naming: Named after the Japanese pronunciation of "snail" in keeping with the Namekians' slug motif.
- Those Two Guys: With Pilina. Toei descriptions don't really describe much about their individual personality.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He doesn't do anything worth mentioning in the manga before Kale takes him out.
- Worthy Opponent: After being defeated by Piccolo, he shows his appreciation for him before being eliminated.Saonel: So, this is the power of the Namekians from Universe 7? Well done.
One of the two Namekians participating in the Tournament of Power for Universe 6.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: He and Saonel are outright shown at the beginning of the Tournament of Power in the manga, and they're shown fighting Napapa from Universe 10.
- Breath Weapon: Can launch an energy wave from his mouth, like Lord Slug.
- Combat Pragmatist: Has no issues attacking a weakened Goku from behind, but seem to challenge Gohan and Piccolo to a fair fight.
- Demoted to Extra: In the manga, he appears only a few times in the background before Kale throws him out while in her berserk state.
- Early-Bird Cameo: His existence is known by a magazine scan, yet he's shown in the godPad in Episode 102. Not even Universe 4's "hidden warriors" are shown like this. He and Saonel are also shown fighting with Universe 3 warriors in Episode 101.
- Expy: His design and abilities, plus what little we get of his personality, makes him a dead ringer for Lord Slug.
- Fusion Dance: The source of both his and Saonel's great power. Upon learning about the tournament, a massive number of Namekians let themselves be absorbed by them for the sake of victory.
- Healing Factor: Can regrow his body parts, fittinly for a Namekian. His arm was crushed during his fight with Piccolo and Gohan. He, however, has a pretty powerful healing factor as stated by Piccolo due to him fusing with many Namekians.
- Last Stand: In the anime only. He is one of the last two fighters for Universe 6, so he has to defeat Piccolo and Gohan or his entire universe will be wiped out.
- Muscles Are Meaningful: Of the two Namekians, he looks the most buff.
- Power Incontinence: At first, he and Saonel explain that they were waiting on the sidelines for their bodies to stabilize from fusing with so many others.
- Reused Character Design: He takes most of his overall appereance from Lord Slug from the non-serial movies, like his use of White Gloves, plus his ability to have a Breath Weapon.
- Smug Super: The first picture we see of him is a smug smile, and he's quite the powerhouse if Champa and Vados are confident enough to put him in the Tournament of Power.
- Theme Naming: Named after pilina, an extinct class of mollusc, in keeping with the Namekians' slug motif.
- Those Two Guys: With Saonel. Toei descriptions don't really describe much about their individual personalities.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He doesn't do anything worth mentioning in the manga before Kale takes him out.
- White Gloves: Unusually for a Namekian, he wears white gloves, like how Slug used to do. Like Piccolo, he can generate clothing from thin air, allowing him to replace the gloves when he loses his arms.
Other Universe 6 Residents
Universe 6 Saiyans
Saiyans (サイヤ人, Saiya-jin)
The Universe 6 Saiyans are mirror counterparts to the Universe 7 Saiyans. Unlike their U7 counterparts who were remorseless Space Pirates who caused mass genocide, the U6 Saiyans are protectors of peace across the universe. They also identify themselves as a warrior race, just like the U7 Saiyans, except they see it as their duty to use their power to help people, not terrorize them.
Little is known about the U6 Saiyans except that they didn't destroy their home planet, unlike the Universe 7 Saiyans. They also evolved differently, namely they don't have tails and appear to be overall stronger than their U7 counterparts. They are more comparable to the hybrid Saiyans of U7 than the pure-blooded Saiyans.
- Alternate Self: The Universe 6 counterpart of the Saiyans. Rather than being Space Pirates like the U7 Saiyans were, most of them are instead a Space Police.
- Animal Motifs: Monkeys, although Downplayed since they're not born with tails. Calling them "chimpanzee" and "gorilla" is still highly offensive.
- Blood Knight: Despite being Good Counterparts to the Universe 7 Saiyans, they fully identify themselves as a warrior race.
- Challenge Seeker: Downplayed. Unlike the Universe 7 Saiyans they are more likely to fight more powerful opponents to protect their friends and loved ones, but they still prefer opponents who are merely strong enough to give them a workout and don't like those they know can beat them. At least they are not quite as sore losers.
- Cessation of Existence: The Universe 6 Saiyans go along with the erasure of their universe.
- Fantastic Slurs: Just like in Universe 7, calling a Saiyan a 'monkey' or some form of primate is a major insult. Caulifla uses them in an attempt to get Kale to transform into a Super Saiyan.
- Golden Super Mode: They actually never discovered the Super Saiyan transformation, despite being stronger than their counterparts, maybe due to their pacifist nature. Thanks to Vegeta, Cabba was the first Super Saiyan in the history of Universe 6, and he taught this form to many others, giving the Saiyans a proud tradition for years to come.
- Good Counterpart: They are this to the Universe 7 Saiyans. While the U7 Saiyans were coldblooded mass-murderers who happily committed genocide, the U6 Saiyans devote using their power to protect people. Even Saiyans like Caulifla who are more selfish and morally questionable are nowhere near as bad as the U7 Saiyans at their worst.
- Human Aliens: The Saiyans lost their tails centuries ago and their development makes them more similar to Universe 7 hybrid Saiyans than the Space Pirates that were the pure-blooded U7 Saiyans.
- Japanese Delinquents: In the anime, Caulifla runs an underground gang inspired by the yankii.
- Karmic Jackpot: What they are to the Universe 7 Saiyans. The Saiyans in U7 were remorseless Space Pirates who not only destroyed their own planet and stole another world, but they also helped Frieza wipe out countless civilizations to satisfy their own bloodlust. In the end, they are all but destroyed by Frieza's own hand. The U6 Saiyans, on the other hand, kept their homeworld and fight to protect the universe. For this, they are respected and revered across the universe and are thriving as a species. Furthermore, since they weren't abruptly snuffed out, their entire race has had decades to improve, so U6 Saiyans on average are more powerful than the U7 Saiyans were before their destruction.
- Little Bit Beastly: Noticeably subverted. Goku and Vegeta are shocked that Cabba doesn't have a tail and Cabba doesn't know what they're talking about when they asked about it. The Saiyans from Universe 6 have evolved past the need for them.
- Long-Lived: If they're similar to their U7 counterparts, they are still considered young up to their 80s and age more slowly than humans.
- Noodle People: In contrast to the musclebound Saiyans of Universe 7, and almost all fighters throughout the franchise, U6 Saiyan fighters have much smaller builds, with almost no muscle definition. The stand-out exception is Kale, who goes berserk in her Super Saiyan form and bulks up significantly. Even then, she's still slim otherwise.
- Planet of Hats: According to Cabba, the Saiyans in U6 are all peace-loving freedom fighters who fight to protect the innocent since it's their duty as a warrior race. This appears to be mostly true since the only morally questionable Saiyans we have seen are Caulifla and Kale who are part of a gang, yet they can't be that bad since Cabba never tries to arrest them. Renso also speaks highly of his sister.
- Power Trio: Cabba, Caulifla and Kale form a Saiyan variant during the Tournament of Power. They even stick together after the tournament.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: Downplayed. Cabba proudly calls the Saiyans a warrior race and looked down on the Universe 7 Saiyans for abusing their great power to terrorize others.
- So Last Season: Regarding the Universe 6 Saiyan trio, tapping into the Super Saiyan transformation.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Their home planet is either called Sadal, Sadla or Sadala, depending on the medium.
- Super Mode: Like their U7 counterparts, they have access to the Super Saiyan transformation and its offshoots, which presumably includes the god forms.
- Superpower Lottery: They have all the benefits of the Universe 7 Saiyans outside of not having the Great Ape form, since they're born without tails. Despite never having learned of the Super Saiyan transformation until the U7 Saiyans revealed it to them, once transformed they display power nearly equal to Goku and Vegeta, who have trained with those forms for years. Immediately after learning to transform, Cabba was able to put Vegeta on the defense in his rage, even though Vegeta has been training with Whis for almost two years and had an additional three years of training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
- Unwitting Pawn: They are this to Frost. The Saiyans and Frost's Empire worked together a number of times since they're all freedom fighters who wants to protect the citizens of Universe 6. Cabba then learns that Frost has been using them since he starts the wars that he stops so he can buy and sell the planets he ruins at a high price. Cabba reports this, putting Frost on the wanted list.
- We Help the Helpless: They are practically the police of Universe 6 who fight to stop wars and bring in criminals.
The king of the Saiyan race on Universe 6.
- Egopolis: The manga implies that, much like Planet Vegeta in Universe 7 was named after King Vegeta, he named Planet Sadala after himself.
- The Ghost: Has only been mentioned by Cabba once.
- Good Counterpart: Is heavily implied he is one to King Vegeta, as "a strong and proud" man brings to mind Vegeta, but the fact the planet is named after himself brings King Vegeta to mind.
- The Good King: Implied, since the Saiyans are a race of heroic mercenaries.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: Cabba states that the king shares Vegeta's Saiyan pride.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He has never been seen on screen, but Cabba's promise to introduce Vegeta to Planet Sadala and him one day is half of what drives Vegeta's actions for most of Super.
As a well-known delinquent, Caulifla has a band of followers that follow her around. In the anime, they are a band of punks, while in the manga, they are all female bandits.
- Black Sheep: They are this to the other Saiyans.
- In the anime, Caulifla and Kale appear to be this since they belong to a gang instead of fighting for justice like the other Saiyans. At the same time, they don't come across as bad people since Cabba never felt the need to arrest them and Renso has nothing but good things to say about his sister.
- In the manga, Caulifla and Kale live in a poor territory of Sadala as Robin-Hood-esque bandits, and Caulifla herself is The Dreaded, with no one on the army being able to beat them until Cabba became a Super Saiyan.
- Depending on the Writer: In the anime, they are a band of delinquents, inspired by the Japanese delinquent stereotype. In the manga, they are an all-female group of bandits.
- Pet the Dog: In the manga, they first appear stealing food and water from the Sadala Squad, but then are shown to share it with poor kids from the turf, meaning they aren't that bad.
Renso (レンソウ, Rensou)
A Saiyan from Planet Sadal, and the older brother of Caulifla. He was formerly the captain of Planet Sadal's Defense Squad but had to retire due to a leg injury. He trained Cabba.
- Adapted Out: Renso appears to not exist in the manga version. Or at least hasn't been mentioned.
- Ambiguously Brown: Compared to the lighter shade of melanin of his younger sister, Renso is quite tanned.
- Career-Ending Injury: His leg injury meant the end of his time as the captain of Planet Sadal's Defense Squad.
- Edible Theme Naming: Like all Saiyans, his name is taken from a vegetable, spinach in Japanese.
- Good Counterpart: To Raditz. Both have siblings that are considered the black sheep of the family and alert their peers to them when they need new recruits, but Renso is brave, well-respected by his fellow Saiyans where Raditz was cowardly and considered an embarrassment to the Saiyan race.
- Handicapped Badass: Prominently sports a splinted leg when Cabba requests he participate in the Tournament of Power, requiring a cane to move around.
- The Hermit: Since his retirement, he lives in an isolated cabin on a place that appears to be otherwise uninhabited.
- Informed Attribute: He claims to have trained Caulifla, but from what we see, she's largely Unskilled, but Strong, meaning either his traning didn't stick, or it's severely lacking.
- Nominal Importance: Mainly just exists as a way for Cabba to end up meeting Caulifla and Kale.
- Refusal of the Call: He turns down Cabba's offer of a spot on the team, as his injury would be a greater liability than any benefit his years of experience might provide.
- Retired Badass: Was formerly the captain of his planet defense forces, and trained Cabba, who went toe-to-toe with a Post-God base Vegeta. That definitely qualifies.
Universe 6 Namekians
Namekians (ナメック星人, Namekku-seijin)
The Universe 6 counterparts of the Namekians.
- Alternate Self: The Universe 6 counterparts of the Namekians. They aren't that explored compared with the Saiyans, and it's unclear how different they are from their counterparts.
- Do Not Go Gentle: Compared to their more pacifistic counterparts from Universe 7, the Universe 6 Namekians were willing to sacrifice themselves en masse to give their two chosen champions a chance of survival in the Tournament of Power. Saonel and Pirina boast that they have far greater willpower.
- Early Installment Weirdness: In Xenoverse 2. Since the Namekians were never mentioned in the Universe 6 saga of the anime, none of the Universe 6 fighters seem to recognize the Namekian Time Patrollers in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, implying they didn't exist or something else. Come the Universal Survival Arc, and two of their fighters join Universe 6 for the Tournament of Power, maybe thanks to Piccolo's presence during the Universe 6 tournament.Frost: Wow! I must say your power intrigues me to no end. I would love to sit and hear about your homeland sometime.
- Fridge Brilliance kicks in when taking into account that Universe 6 worlds are somewhat inverted from their Universe 7 counterparts; the U6 Saiyans being heroic mercenaries as opposed to battle hungry space pirates, U6 Earth having destroyed itself, Frost being far more subtle than Freeza, etc. The Universe 6 Namekians could very well have just been keeping a low profile, as opposed to the Universe 7 Namekians who were famed as a space faring race before the cataclysm. Combined with the fact that even the Gods have overlooked the existence of some races, evidenced by Elder Kai not knowing about the Metalmen, it wouldn't be surprising that the Universe 6 inhabitants simply didn't know of U6!Namek.
- Fusion Dance: Like their counterparts, the warrior-type Namekian can fuse with another to create a more powerful one. Pilina and Saonel took it further, by fusing with all of the warrior Namekians for the Tournament of Power.
- Last Stand: In the anime only. Saonel and Pilina end up as the final remaining fighters for Universe 6 in the Tournament of Power after Kale and Caulifla are ringed out by Goku. Just like Universe 10's remaining fighters, it's also a showdown between Gohan and Piccolo. In the manga, they end up getting taken out by Berserker Kale.
