Dohyōdoru (ドヒョードル) is a martial arts style from the 10th Universe. A warrior who practices this style is known as a Rikishi, and the highest rank obtainable is the Yokozuna.

Overview

Little is known about this school of martial arts, save that it emphasizes high endurance. When used by Napapa, the rikisi demonstrated the ability to tank and deflected three of Basil's Shining Blasters.[1]

Trivia

  • Dohyōdoru heavily resembles real-life sumo, a popular martial arts style in Japan.
    • A "dohyō" (土俵) is the ring (usually circular in appearance) in which sumo bouts are held.
    • The name could also be based on the sumo phrase of "Dohyō toru" (土俵取る), means to "win/take/occupy the arena." It is a common phrase used in sumo.
