|Manga Debut||Chapter #28|
|Game Debut||Super Dragon Ball Heroes|
Vermoud is a humanoid being who dresses like a circus clown. His skin is a pasty white and he has red hair which is stylized into two balls on the side of his head, while the top remains bald. Blue paint adorns both of his eyes and his nose is large, round, and red. True to his clown theme, he also has prominent red lips.
He dons the attire of the Hakaishin: a purple sash; baggy pants, which are both blue and pink; a sash-like flap, which bears the insignia of his universe; and pointed brown shoes.
Vermoud does not abide to evil, and the valiant efforts of the Pride Troopers send his heart aflutter. In the manga, however, Vermoud is not above uncouth tactics to win a battle, such as blindsiding an opponent to take them offguard. As a Hakaishin who has been at his job for some time, he is more casual about his job, more than willing to spend time with a planet's inhabitants for his pleasure and then destroy them without a second thought.
Vermoud, like all of his fellow Hakaishin, possesses the capability to destroy organisms that exist in their respective universe in order to upkeep the balance in the universe.

Having been notified by the Grand Priest that his presence was required at the Zen Exhibition Match, Vermoud shortly attends the match alongside Marcarita, Kai and Toppo, where they watch the 7th and 9th Universe contestants fight each other.
In Other Timelines
- Vermoud's name derives from vermouth (ベルモット, berumotto), an aromatized, fortified wine flavored with various botanicals.
- Vermoud's was a concept of both Toyotarō and Akira Toriyama.
- Vermound's appearance was likely inspired by Stephen King's It. The titular monster of the novel, It, was a primordial, god-like being who originated in the macroverse. While It had many forms, It's most famous appearance was a common circus clown named Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
- Another inspiration for Vermoud's appearance would be the Joker from DC Comics, though only from a design aspect.
