Napapa (ナパパ) also known as the Magician of the Edge Ring (ドヒョー際の魔術師, Dohyōgiwa no Majutsushi) is a rikishi holding the rank of yokozuna from the 10th Universe, and a warrior selected as a representative of his respective universe's strongest warriors.

Background

Hours before the Tournament of power Napapa was scouted out by the Hakaishin, Rumoosh and his guide Kusu, who was selected based on the size of his muscles and physique.[2]

Personality

With all things considered, Napapa had shown himself to have a rather unsavory personality, being more than willing to beat up on a defenseless opponent. Furthermore, he seemed to enjoy beating up on Kale, upset when she fell unconscious from the stress.[3] Napapa's signature phrase is "dosukoi" (どすこい):[1] an exclamation frequently used by stage sumo performers.

Part IV

Universe Survival Arc

Main article: Universe Survival Arc Napapa was one of the warriors who was introduced and invited by Rumoosh to compete in the tournament of power, after Gowasu was unable to make a decisive team in the short time span given to them by the Grand Priest. Nappa was led alongside Murrichim, where before hours before the Tournament of Power takes part in a photoshoot alongside his fellow team members.

As the Tournament of Power begins Nappa arrives to the Realm of Nothingness alongside his universe's respective gods, Kusu and his team members. Before the tournament stars Napapa begins to warm up before his match. As the tournament starts Nappa clashes Basil of the 9th Universe who is attacked with fast and powerful thrusts each of them overwhelming Basil. Napapa clinches onto Basil attempting to push him off the Survival Venue. Basil counterattacks but Napapa has no trouble dodging each of Basil's swift attacks, surprising Basil seeing the nimbleness of Napapa. Napapa quickly responds by trying to grapple onto Basil. But Basil evades him.

Basil then uses his signature Shining Blaster, and uses another other one toward Napapa. Napapa easily stops each of the two Shining Blasters with his enormous hands. Seeing that Napapa began to retreat, Basil launches a third just for it to be blocked by Napapa and thrusts all of the Shining Blasters with arms. The performance gets the attention of the gods of the 10th Universe as Rumoosh and Gowasu rejoice over the strong performance of Napapa.[4] Minutes after, Napapa was in combat with Freeza, and the result seemingly showing his defeat, as Freeza tramples onto him back. Roselle then gets the attention of Freeza sparing Napapa from the evil emperor's wrath.

Trivia

  • Napapa's name potentially derives from Panapanbin (ぱなぱんびん) a traditional japanese confectionery.
  • Napapa's signature phrase, "dosukoi" (どすこい), has no literal meaning. In fact, it is rarely (if ever) exclaimed by real sumo wrestlers. The origin of the phrase is thought to be amateur sumo wrestlers, with the etymology thought to have originated from "doko e iku" (どくえいく; Literally meaning "What's next?"), to which the crowd would respond, "dokko e" (どっこい). Over time, this became dosukoi.
  • Napapa's moniker, "Magician of the Edge Ring" (ドヒョー際の魔術師, Dohyōgiwa no Majutsushi), might refer to his ability to deflect attacks at the last moment, while literally on the edge of the ring.[1]
