Dogidogi (ドギドギ Dogidogi) is a character introduced in Dragon Ball Heroes. The dark counterpart and copy of Tokitoki, it was created and raised by Mechikabura and was later used as a tool by Fu to help create the Pseudo Universe.
Creation and concept
Dogidogi was first mentioned in a bonus feature for the Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission! manga.
Dogidogi is a divine bird that mainly resembles a raven or crow. Its yellow eyes display black crosses, and its black plumage flares out to its sides. Its beak and the markings around its eyes are red, and its eyebrows are defined by two long, black feathers protruding from the center of its forehead.
In the manga, Dogidogi is shown to have a rivalry with Chronoa's Tokitoki similar to the rivalry between its creator Mechikabura and Chronoa.
In retialia Dogidogi is a fake copy of Tokitoki who was raised by Mechikabura, potentially in retaliation for failing to take care of the first Tokitoki egg. At some point, it was acquired by Fu, who planned to use its power to assist in creating a new universe.

Dogidogi is the apparent cause of Beerus and his fellow Destroyers' arrival on Earth, noted by Beerus as the Bird of Catastrophe from the Oracle Fish's prediction that a bird would appear in Universe 7, wiping it and the other universes out. However, Beerus mistakenly believes Tokitoki to be the Bird of Catastrophe, while the real Dogidogi is with Fu in his lab. As a result Tokitoki is temporarily targeted by the Gods of Destruction in a case of mistaken identity, forcing the Time Patrol to defend the divine bird, though in the anime, Tokitoki has the ability to nullify the Energy of Destruction. Dogidogi later joins Fu when he travels to Universe 7 to tell Goku and the others of his plan with Beerus realizing that Dogidogi was the "bird of catastrophe" that the Oracle Fish had told him about. In the manga, Dogidogi battles Tokitoki while Fu is giving his explanation.
Some time later, Fu appears along with Dogidogi while Goku and Vegeta are facing Turles and Bojack and Xeno Trunks and Xeno Pan are protecting Tokitoki. Upon Fu's orders, Dogidogi begins to flap his wings which causes Goku and his allies to freeze in place. Fu then takes the opportunity to capture Tokitoki and escape.

After Demigra traps both Fu and Xeno Vegito in the Time Labyrinth whilst inside the Crack of Time, Dogidogi frees Dark King Fu and merges with him, giving him a new youthful looking appearance and a vast new level of power.
When using the full power of his Dogidogi Completely Absorbed form, he gains both of Dogidogi's wings and according to Hearts has become an existence akin to the Omni-Kings.
As a demonic copy of a Tokitoki bird, Dogidogi has some power over time. Like Chronoa's Tokitoki, absorbing Dogidogi can grant the user power over time. Additionally absorbing it also grants the Dark King access to Dogidogi's wings with the incomplete state gaining Dogidogi's right wing, while the perfected state grants both wings and according to Hearts turns the user into an existence akin to that of the Omni-Kings.

- Dogidogi vs. Tokitoki
- Mechikabura's creation of a demonic fake copy of a Tokitoki is similar to Towa's failed attempts to replicate Tokitoki's Egg in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 which resulted in the creation of the Distorted Time Eggs that end up creating the Time Miniature Rifts and created a counterpart of Future Trunks that chose to defy Chronoa and save Future Gohan in the Unknown History Saga.
- As Chronoa says it is impossible to create Tokitoki's Eggs artificially, it is possible that artificially creating a Tokitoki is impossible too, which if true would mean any attempts to artificially create a Tokitoki would end in a fake copy like Dogidogi.
