"We Pride Troopers don't know the meaning of the word "surrender"! Quitting goes against our code! Hear me?"
Dispo is the charge/vanguard commander of the Pride Troopers.
Dispo heavily resembles Beerus more than Champa though they share no relation. Dispo is slim, purple, and hairless with wide, elongated pointed ears—lacking the extra earring that Beerus himself has—and similar to Cornish Rex and in appearance. He has rabbit-like front teeth, unlike Beerus and Champa's more pointed, catlike teeth and also doesn't seem to have a tail. He wears a red and black form-fitting suit and tall white boots, like the rest of his Pride Trooper teammates.
Being a member of the Pride Troopers, Dispo has a sense of justice, wanting evil in Universe 11 to be vanquished. He holds high affection and respect for his fellow Pride Troopers, and was visibly enraged and saddened when Kunshi sacrificed himself so he could get away. He also uses the word "Justice" in his speech a lot. 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, Dispo can be prideful and impolite towards opponents unlike Top. In his fight against Hit, as it was his confidence in his abilities that drove him to challenge Hit, arguably the strongest member of Universe 6, in a one on one battle, while initially having the edge, this ultimately led to his defeat due to Hit figuring out his tactics. He often smirks when he is fighting and believes he is winning, but when things turn around, he is shocked and confused. Dispo 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.
In the manga, Dispo is more mature as he is less cocky and not a sore loser.
Dragon Ball Super
Universe Survival Saga
Main article: Universe Survival Saga
When Universe 7 is selecting their team, Dispo is one of the foes from another Universe pictured by Old Kai.
Dispo arrives on Planet Daldon after the Pride Troopers are informed that Araghne and a Dorakiyan are causing chaos. Dispo attempts to fight Aragney head on, but is trapped by its tentacles. Right before he is eaten, Dispo is saved by Top and Casserale. Dispo poses with the other Pride Troopers, and they launch a combined attack at Aragney. Back on the Pride Troopers ship, once Aragney and the Drakiyan are defeated, Dispo agrees with Top that they need to recruit the Pride Troopers from other planets, especially Jiren, for the Tournament of Power.
During the tournament, Dispo, 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, Dispo 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 Dispo 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 Dispo and dodged the attack.
Dispo 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, Dispo 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 Dispo's offense. Suspecting a trap, Top ordered another Pride Trooper, Kunshi, to intervene. As Kunshi raced to engage Hit, Dispo 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 Dispo threw his finishing attack, Hit used his Tides of Time technique to cause Dispo to phase straight through him. As a result, Dispo was sent careening off the stage himself, but was rescued by Kunshi'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 Kunshi turning what had been a clean one on one fight into a multi-person melee. Goku confronted Dispo 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 Dispo that while his speed was incredible, his movements were so linear that they were easy to follow. Hit, who had been since fighting Kunshi, decided then to switch combatants with Goku and charged Dispo again. This time however, Hit landed a solid punch to Dispo'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 Dispo's timing. As Dispo attacked again, Hit once again produced the Time Skip sounds, only this time the technique materialized. Dispo's timing was once again disrupted and he was punched square in the nose. Hit then taunted Dispo with the fact that his advantage had been neutralized, and attacked again. Dispo, now unable to predict Hit's movements, was pummeled relentlessly by Universe 6's top fighter, who offered Dispo the chance to surrender. He refused, and Hit tossed him from the arena. However, Kunshi managed to save him by yanking him back onto the stage with his filaments once again. Kunshi then attacked Hit himself, but was completely outmatched and was blasted from the arena. After this, Dispo 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, Dispo heard Maji Kayo attempting to attack Jiren and intercepted in his attack by kicking him away, sending him flying towards a rock. Afterwards, Dispo 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 Dispo in submission and threatened to cut his giant ears off. When Jiren showed up however, Dispo 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.
Dispo 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 Dispo and Top tried to attack Goku, however they were easily countered and thrown aside. Jiren later told Dispo 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 Dispo and Top to leave the rest to them and resumed his meditation. Afterwards, Dispo and Top went up against Viara and Catopesra after they attempted to take out Jiren but failed.
When Frieza was rampaging through the tournament arena, looking for a worthy opponent, Dispo seemingly lost the will to fight, saying that "I'm done with him." moments before Katopesla challenged Frieza of Universe 7. Dispo also observed Goku and Kefla fight, and noted that Goku was quickly learning how to use Ultra Instinct better.
After Universes 7 and 11 are the only remaining universes in the fight, Dispo begins fighting Frieza. He boasts 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.
Dispo and Frieza continue their battle, with Dispo encouraged to fight harder after witnessing a clash between Jiren, Goku and Vegeta. Dispo’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 Dispo, 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.
Dispo 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 Dispo off, frightening Dispo somewhat. Golden Frieza’s speed was able to completely outmatch Dispo, to the point of which Khai was growing worried. However, Dispo revealed one more technique, which further boosted his speed to completely new levels, outclassing even Golden Frieza.
Whilst Dispo was about to knock Frieza off the stage, Gohan left his battle against Top to provide aid. Dispo’s speed was able to outmanoeuvre both Gohan and Frieza. Gohan, however, noticed Dispo’s weakness; Dispo needs a wide field of movement in order to utilise his speed to his fullest potential. Working with Frieza, Gohan engages Dispo, whilst Frieza forms a Cage of Light around them, preventing Dispo from moving without taking serious damage. In close quarters, Gohan was able to easily overpower Dispo, Dispo 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. Dispo prepared himself to use his speed once more, when Gohan locked Dispo in his grip. With Gohan’s orders, Frieza fired a blast at both Dispo and Gohan to knock both of them off of the stage, Gohan sacrificing himself to prevent Dispo‘s speed from remaining a problem for the rest of Universe 7. Dispo 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, Dispo 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.

Dispo 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 the epithet, The Sonic Warrior. Dispo 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 Dispo 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 Dispo’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 Dispo. Goku however soon saw through Dispo’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, Dispo 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-sidedly beat Hit. Dispo 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 Dispo 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, Dispo 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 Dispo.
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 Dispo into believing he is using the technique when he is not. With this, Dispo 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, Dispo’s Justice Crush was strong enough to damage him, however Maji Kayo regenerated in moments without any signs of damage. Dispo 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, Dispo proved powerless against him and was unable to actually notice Goku have a brief exchange with Jiren mere feet from him. When Dispo attempted to strike Goku with a kick, Goku effortlessly caught his foot and threw him into the ground.
When Frieza began trying to get another opponent to fight him, Dispo hid behind a rock, noted that he could not deal with Frieza and then fled.
In the manga, Dispo proved to be able to fight Super Saiyan 2 Goku and gained an advantage over him 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 Dispo and Top with the form, he easily takes down Dispo before the Pride Trooper can even react.
Dispo 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, ironically, Dispo challenges Frieza singlehandedly later. During the battle, Dispo uses his speed and goes more on the defensive, dodging most of final form Frieza's attacks. Frieza notes that Dispo’s Light Bullet ability will not work on him and is able to easily see through Dispo’s afterimage movements and grabs Dispo’s hand with his tail when Dispo attempts to attack him from behind; however this allows Dispo to grab onto Frieza's tail and drag him through and around parts of the arena. Even after he had finished this assault, Dispo found that he had dealt no damage to final form Frieza, shocking him and the other Pride Troopers. Later on, Dispo was able to match final form Frieza in combat, however Dispo was quickly overwhelmed when Frieza transformed into True Golden Frieza, with Khai noting that even with Light Bullet Dispo is slower than Golden Frieza. However, Dispo 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. Dispo’s power also increases in this mode, though Frieza notes that it is not a threat to him. Dispo is also able to easily dodge Gohan and Frieza's ki blasts. Once Frieza trapped both Gohan and Dispo in a Cage of Light, Dispo was able to match Potential Unleashed Gohan in combat, however he is overpowered in the end. However, Frieza loses his grip, allowing Dispo 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 anime only, by increasing his ki at maximum capacity, Dispo surrounds himself in a purple flame-like aura that outlines his body and that gives him the ability to move at a speed faster than his usual speed, outspeeding the likes of True Golden Frieza and Potential Unleashed Gohan. 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. In this mode, Dispo was fast enough to put Potential Unleashed Gohan and True Golden Frieza in trouble, with Gohan having to sacrifice himself to defeat him.
