"You really thought I was pretty?"
Mamba lives in the forest near Mount Paozu, and saves Goku Jr. and Puck from wolves, only to attempt to cook them later. She nearly kills Goku Jr. by strangling him with her hair, but he is able to knock her down, and Puck cuts him free so they can make their escape. This ruins her hair, and she pledges to follow and kill them both. Later, Mamba, Torga, and Susha catch up with Goku Jr. and the bear, chasing them for a while until they all run into Lord Yao. After Goku Jr. becomes a Super Saiyan and defeats Lord Yao, Mamba and the other monsters run away.

Video Game Appearances
Mamba appears in a boss character in Dokkan Battle.
- Mamba bears an uncanny resemblance to Zangya, but behaves more like Princess Snake, using disguises to trick travelers into coming into her home. She also wears a similar headpiece tiara and arm warmers that strike a heavy resemblance to that of Zarbon's.
- She is a sucker for compliments. When Goku Jr. tried talking her out of killing him and Puck by telling her she looked much better as a Human, she reverted to her human form and recognized its beauty, which gave Goku Jr. and Puck sometime to sneak out (though not enough as she caught them in the act in her mirror). Later, she again fell for a compliment when she was told that her hair looks better short.
- Mamba shares many traits with Baba Yaga, the cannibal witch of Russian folklore who often lured lost travelers (usually children) back to her chicken-legged hut to kill and eat. She is also similar to the witch in the German fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, who attempted to eat the two titular protagonists of the story.
