"We Pride Troopers don't know the meaning of the word "surrender"! Quitting goes against our code! Hear me?"
Dyspo (ディスポ Disupo) is a member and captain/vanguard commander of the Pride Troopers that participates in the Tournament of Power. Dyspo is arrogant, reckless, and has a strong sense of justice.
Dyspo is slim, purple, and hairless with wide, elongated pointed ears, similar to Cornish Rex and Beerus, though they share no relation. He has rabbit-like front teeth, unlike Beerus's more pointed, catlike teeth and also seems to lack a tail. He wears a red and black form-fitting suit and tall white boots, like the rest of his Pride Trooper teammates.in appearance. His eyes are bulging and yellow. Dyspo heavily resembles
Like his fellow Pride Troopers, Dyspo's sense of justice and desire to vanquish the evil in his universe is strong, and much like Top, he has an affinity for frequently using the word "Justice" in his speeches. He holds high affection and respect for his fellow Pride Troopers, and was visibly enraged and saddened when K'nsi sacrificed himself so he could get away. He is also uncompromising in his beliefs and turned down an alliance by Frieza, realizing the malicious intent Frieza had behind his offer. He appears to be very good friends with Top, openly expressing worry and rushing to his aid when he is defeated.
Despite his thirst for justice, Dyspo can be prideful, cocky and impolite towards opponents, a trait not shared with Top. His confidence in his own abilities was what drove him to challenge and nearly lose to Hit, as while he initially had the advantage, his tactics' flaws were quickly figured out by the assassin. He often smirks when he is fighting and believes he is winning, but when things turn around, he is shocked and confused. Dyspo also appears to be a sore loser, as he was shown angered at his elimination, exclaiming "Me of all people!" when he was returned to the bench. However, he still accepted his defeat in the end. The main cause of Dyspo's cockiness probably lies in that fact that he, Top and Jiren are factually a lot stronger than the other Pride Troopers.
In the manga, Dyspo is more mature as he is less cocky and not a sore loser.
Dragon Ball Super
Universe Survival Saga
Main article: Universe Survival Saga
Dyspo arrives on Planet Daldon after the Pride Troopers are informed that Araghne and a Dorakiyan are causing chaos. Dyspo attempts to fight Araghne head on, but is trapped by its tentacles. Right before he is eaten, Dyspo is saved by Top and Kahseral. Dyspo poses with the other Pride Troopers, and they launch a combined attack at Araghne. Back on the Pride Troopers ship, once Araghne and the Dorakiyan are defeated, Dyspo agrees with Top that they need to recruit the Pride Troopers from other planets, especially Jiren, for the Tournament of Power.
During the tournament, Dyspo, alongside Zoire and Zirloin, blocked some explosions from some attacks from other combatants, then he, alongside Cabba, was knocked away by Narirama's spin attack. Later on, he, alongside Goku, Vegeta, Caulifla, and Kale, watched as Zeno and Future Zeno erased Universe 9.
Later on, Dyspo stood and watched as Kale went berserk in her Legendary Super Saiyan form, alongside his fellow troopers. He was later seen as he heard Brianne de Chateau call out her fellow warriors and didn't pay attention to Zirloin and Jimizu leaving to join their comrades. He then watched as the Kamikaze Fireballs did their Formation and said result left Dyspo and Top blushing. Brianne then unleashed heart shaped explosions that unleashed an odor that filled those who smelt it with love, Top tried to resist it as well as Dyspo and dodged the attack.
Dyspo then confronted Hit and managed to take the upper hand by using his exceptionally sensitive ears to listen for the unique muscle contractions that occurred before each of Hit's Time Skips. With his opponent's ability neutralized, Dyspo was able to use his extraordinary speed to overwhelm Hit. However, Hit was able to avoid taking any serious damage by keeping all of his vital areas defended, and used the opportunity to start adapting to Dyspo's offense. Suspecting a trap, Top ordered another Pride Trooper, K'nsi, to intervene. As K'nsi raced to engage Hit, Dyspo drove the Universe 6 assassin to the edge of the ring and prepared to knock him off. Hit then revealed that Top's intuition had been correct; he had purposely allowed himself to be driven to the edge of the arena, and when Dyspo threw his finishing attack, Hit used his Tides of Time technique to cause Dyspo to phase straight through him. As a result, Dyspo was sent careening off the stage himself, but was rescued by K'nsi's light filaments, which wrapped around him and pulled him back into the arena.
The two Pride Troopers then teamed up against Hit, but the fight was cut short by the arrival of Goku, who was annoyed at K'nsi turning what had been a clean one on one fight into a multi-person melee. Goku confronted Dyspo as a Super Saiyan God, but was out sped by his opponent and forced onto the defensive. However, Goku was able to quickly adapt to his opponent's movements and transformed into a Super Saiyan Blue to counterattack, telling Dyspo that while his speed was incredible, his movements were so linear that they were easy to follow. Hit, who had been since fighting K'nsi, decided then to switch combatants with Goku and charged Dyspo again. This time however, Hit landed a solid punch to Dyspo's midsection, and explained to the stupefied Pride Trooper that he had mimicked the sounds of the Time Skip's muscle contractions without actually using the technique, throwing off Dyspo's timing. As Dyspo attacked again, Hit once again produced the Time Skip sounds, only this time the technique materialized. Dyspo's timing was once again disrupted and he was punched square in the nose. Hit then taunted Dyspo with the fact that his advantage had been neutralized, and attacked again.
Dyspo, now unable to predict Hit's movements, was pummeled relentlessly by Universe 6's top fighter, who offered Dyspo the chance to surrender. He refused, and Hit tossed him from the arena. However, K'nsi managed to save him by yanking him back onto the stage with his filaments once again. K'nsi then attacked Hit himself, but was completely outmatched and was blasted from the arena. After this, Dyspo retreated. Later on, he and Jiren are instructed by Top to drop the hero act and fight to their fullest from now on, with justice and evil being replaced by survival and erasure now.
As the three of them stood their ground, Dyspo heard Maji-Kayo attempting to attack Jiren and intercepted in his attack by kicking him away, sending him flying towards a rock. Afterwards, Dyspo attacked him with his Justice Crush and then with his Justice Kick when his enemy seemed to accept defeat, only for Maji-Kayo to regenerate and constrict Dyspo in submission and threatened to cut his giant ears off. When Jiren showed up however, Dyspo took the opportunity to fire a ki blast to set him free from Maji-Kayo's body, then fell back and apologized for lowering his guard.
Dyspo then fired a ki blast at an unknown opponent and later joined Top as they watched Jiren clash with Goku's Universe 7's Spirit Bomb. They then gathered around Jiren after he seemingly killed Goku when the other warriors prepared to attack. However, it turned out that Goku survived and transformed into a Ultra Instinct -Sign- state. Both Dyspo and Top tried to attack Goku, however they were easily countered and thrown aside. Jiren later told Dyspo and Top to leave and did so, leaving him to finish his duel with Goku.
After he did defeat Goku, and Hit as well, Jiren told Dyspo and Top to leave the rest to them and resumed his meditation. Afterwards, Dyspo and Top went up against Biarra and Catopesra after they attempted to take out Jiren but failed.
When Frieza was rampaging through the tournament arena, looking for a worthy opponent, Dyspo seemingly lost the will to fight, saying that "I'm done with him." moments before Catopesra challenged Frieza of Universe 7. Dyspo also observed Goku and Kefla fight, and noted that Goku was quickly learning how to use Ultra Instinct better.
Despite his previous sentiment, when Universes 7 and 11 are the only remaining universes in the fight, Dyspo confronts Frieza and engages him in combat, boasting that he is the fastest in all the universes, but is incensed when Frieza taunts him. Whilst he is able to drag Frieza through and around parts of the arena, he is barely able to damage him thanks to Frieza's incredible durability.
Dyspo and Frieza continue their battle, with Dyspo encouraged to fight harder after witnessing a clash between Jiren, Goku and Vegeta. Dyspo's speed continued to increase during the battle, allowing him to overwhelm Final Form Frieza in terms of raw speed. Frieza took this as an opportunity to attempt a bargain with Dyspo, requesting that if Frieza were to aid Universe 11 in the Tournament Of Power, Universe 11 would use the Super Dragon Balls to revive Frieza.
Dyspo sees through Frieza's plan, claiming that he never listens to evil. Frieza decides to power up to Golden Frieza, claiming that he will use all of his power to knock Dyspo off, frightening Dyspo somewhat. Golden Frieza's speed was able to completely outmatch Dyspo, to the point of which Khai was growing worried. However, Dyspo revealed one more technique, which further boosted his speed to completely new levels, outclassing even Golden Frieza.
Whilst Dyspo was about to knock Frieza off the stage, Gohan left his battle against Top to provide aid. Dyspo's speed was able to outmaneuver both Gohan and Frieza. Gohan, however, noticed Dyspo's weakness; Dyspo needs a wide field of movement in order to utilize his speed to his fullest potential. Working with Frieza, Gohan engages Dyspo, whilst Frieza forms a Cage of Light around them, preventing Dyspo from moving without taking serious damage. In close quarters, Gohan was able to easily overpower Dyspo as he is unable to match Gohan's skill in combat. As Gohan was preparing the final blow, Frieza's grip weakened, and the Cage of Light dispersed. Dyspo prepared himself to use his speed once more, when Gohan locked Dyspo in his grip. With Gohan's orders, Frieza fired a blast at both Dyspo and Gohan to knock both of them off of the stage, Gohan sacrificing himself to prevent Dyspo's speed from remaining a problem for the rest of Universe 7. Dyspo is shown angered at his elimination, exclaiming "Me of all people!" when he was returned to the bench.
He gets worried when Top, in his God of Destruction form, is put on the defensive. He later rushes to aid Top after he gets knocked out. He tells Jiren that the fate of Universe 11 is in his hands, but is shocked when Jiren simply expresses his disappointment in Top. After the rest of Team Universe 11 is eliminated, Dyspo is erased along with Universe 11 by the Zenos. He is later revived with the rest of Universe 11 when Android 17 uses the Super Dragon Balls to resurrect all of the universes that were erased.

Universal Conflict Saga
Main article: Universal Conflict Saga In the manga, both Top and Dyspo battle against Super Saiyan 3 Cumber but even together seem to be at a disadvantage. When the other members of the Core Area Warriors show up, Dyspo attacks and gains an upper hand against Oren due to his speed and then turns his sights on the leader of the group Hearts but is quickly defeated. He is later able to get on his feet and goes after the newly arrived Rags.

Dyspo makes a cameo appearance when Goku mentions the Tournament of Power.
- Manga and Anime
His fighting style and true power is based on his incredible speed, earning him his epithet, The Sonic Warrior. Dyspo can move faster than both sound and light, which according to Top he gained from his repeated battles. At full power, his speed puts him well on top of as the fastest in Universe 11, even claiming to be the fastest in the multiverse. He can even move too fast for even the GodPad designed by the Grand Minister to perceive even at slower speeds. According to Goku, while he is fast, his fighting style is very linear making him easy to read and react to despite his great speed. According to Belmod, he is the third most powerful Pride Trooper, with Jiren being first and Top being second, making him one of the trump cards for Universe 11's potential victory in the Tournament of Power.
In the anime, when Dyspo used his Light Bullet, the Zenos and Champa, a God of Destruction couldn't see his movement while Vados said she "somehow" or "barely" managed to do so. Hit couldn't see Dyspo's attacks and Goku in Super Saiyan God form was prevented from doing an Instant Transmission and even with Super Saiyan Blue he was not able to hit Dyspo. Goku however soon saw through Dyspo's attack patterns to ultimately turn the tables on him and hold the advantage over him during their brief fight. With his Light Bullet ability, along with his superior sense of hearing, Dyspo was able to counter Hit's Time-Skip completely by listening to Hit's muscle vibrations as he uses the technique, and using his speed to shut him down before he executes it - allowing him to one-sided beat Hit. Dyspo was also able to damage Hit and leave marks whenever they exchanged blows, however, none of the blows were grave thanks to Hit blocking attacks aimed at vital areas. When Dyspo and Hit briefly fight normally (without Light Bullet, Time-Skip, or any aid) the two prove to be exactly on par with each other.
In the anime, when he fights Goku as a Super Saiyan God, Dyspo gained the upper hand on Goku on several occasions using his speed. However, similarly to how Goku countered Hit's Time-Skip, Goku was able to read and predict Dyspo's movements, while also transforming to a Super Saiyan Blue for brief moments when attacking, though he still failed to land a blow on Dyspo.
During a rematch against Hit in the anime, the battle is turned to Hit's favor, as he improves his strategy by making it unpredictable. Hit produces the same muscle vibrations as Time-Skip to confuse Dyspo into believing he is using the technique when he is not. With this, Dyspo is overpowered by Hit, as he freely uses Time-Skip to land several power blows, defeating The Sonic Warrior in mere moments, injured, he is forced to retreat.
Against Maji-Kayo, Dyspo's Justice Crush was strong enough to damage him, however Maji-Kayo regenerated in moments without any signs of damage. Dyspo was also unable to get out of Maji-Kayo's hold over him, only being able to free himself when Maji-Kayo was distracted. Against Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku, Dyspo proved powerless against him and was unable to actually notice Goku have a brief exchange with Jiren mere feet from him. When Dyspo attempted to strike Goku with a kick, Goku effortlessly caught his foot and threw him into the ground.
In the manga, Dyspo proved to be able to fight Super Saiyan 2 Goku - noting that he wasn't too bad - but proceeded to overwhelm him easily due to his superior speed, distracting him to allow Top to pin him to the ground. However he is no match for a Perfected Super Saiyan Blue, as when Vegeta is about to engage Dyspo and Top with the form, he easily takes down Dyspo before the Pride Trooper can even react.
Dyspo is able to easily overwhelm the injured Super Saiyan Cabba, noting that unlike his comrades (aside from Jiren and Top) he is quite strong. However he is easily restrained by the injured Super Saiyan Caulifla.
In the anime, when Frieza began trying to get another opponent to fight him, Dyspo hid behind a rock, noted that he could not deal with Frieza and then fled. Ironically, Dyspo challenges Frieza single-handedly later. During the battle, Dyspo uses his speed and goes more on the defensive, dodging most of final form Frieza's attacks. Frieza notes that Dyspo's Light Bullet ability will not work on him and is able to easily see through Dyspo's afterimage movements and grabs Dyspo's hand with his tail when Dyspo attempts to attack him from behind; however this allows Dyspo to grab onto Frieza's tail and drag him through and around parts of the arena. Even after he had finished this assault, Dyspo found that he had dealt no damage to final form Frieza, shocking him and the other Pride Troopers. Later on, Dyspo was able to match final form Frieza in combat, however Dyspo was quickly overwhelmed when Frieza transformed into True Golden Frieza, with Khai noting that even with Light Bullet Dyspo is slower than Golden Frieza. However, Dyspo activates his Super Maximum Light Speed Mode, and is able to force Frieza on the defensive with his speed, pushing him back towards the edge of the arena. Dyspo's power also increases in this mode, though Frieza notes that it is not a threat to him. Dyspo is also able to easily dodge Gohan and Frieza's ki blasts. Once Frieza trapped both Gohan and Dyspo in a Cage of Light, Dyspo was able to match Potential Unleashed Gohan in combat, however he is overpowered in the end. However, Frieza loses his grip, allowing Dyspo to once again move freely. Despite that, Gohan was fast enough to catch him in a grip lock in the moment when he was re-activating his speed mode, allowing Frieza to knock both of them off the arena with Death Cannon.
In the manga, Dyspo faces Android 17 and the two prove even with both taking damage from each other, however 17 overwhelms Dyspo due to Dyspo losing energy while 17 does not.

His power also increases in this state, being able to hold his own against Ultimate Gohan, though Golden Frieza claims it is no threat to him.
