Great King Enma (
He eventually became the judge at the way-station to Universe 7's Earth and judged whether souls enter Heaven or Hell. His jurisdiction only extends to souls that died on Earth, evidenced when he asked Gokū to kill Freeza outside of Earth so he would not have to deal with him in the event Freeza got out of control.
Enma is a colossal magenta-colored ogre with a black beard. His attire consists of a light-purple suit and a helmet with horns on the side.

- Enma is an obvious reference to Yama, the King of Hell in East Asian mythology. There, he is a wrathful god who is said to judge the dead and preside over the Narakas — literally "Hells" — and the cycle of saṃsāra. He was originally known as "Yenma" in Japan, but this was later changed to King Enma (閻魔王, Enma-ō) or, alternatively, Great King Enma (閻魔大王, Enma Dai-Ō).
