"Now you have seen the scope of Narirama's Super Survive ability. And the retrofits on our other team members are just as ingenious. There couldn't be a more perfectly suited team. The victory and survival of our universe is inevitable."
— Nigrissi in "A State of Emergency! Failure to Reach Ten Members!"

Nigrissi (ニグリッシ Nigrisshi) is a modified warrior residing in Universe 3. He is a contestant in the Tournament of Power.[1]

Nigrissi has a humanoid shape, large, pointed green eyes, pointed ears, and a red mouth with a grey-blue tongue. His entire body is both grey and blue, with the exception of the glowing purple marks on his legs and his gold-colored abs.


Nigrissi has a habit of talking to put guri at the end of speeches.[2] Although very little is known about him, it appears that he is humble towards deities, and is confident about Narirama's potential. When describing the modifications of his newly modified warriors, he seems utterly confident in their abilities to stay on the platform of the Tournament of Power.



When talking to the deities of his universe, Eyre says to Nigrissi "We are on the same side this time." This may mean that Nigrissi has been antagonistic towards the gods of Universe 3 in the past.

Nigrisshi is confident Universe 3 will survive

Nigrissi is called upon by Mule, Eyre, and Camparri to compete in the Tournament of Power.

In the anime, when the trio of deities arrive, he begins describing all of the modifications to the robots and cyborgs who were specifically modified to compete in the Tournament of Power.

When the Tournament of Power began, Nigrissi charged forward and fired a Ki blast from his hands. He saw Nairirama's arms getting smashed by Hit and Basil, and cried out in anguish. Nigrissi fought Vegeta but he quickly dispatched him by punching him repeatedly in the chest and then knocked away, but not off the stage. He, alongside Caulifla and Kale, then watched as Goku and Vegeta's Final Kamehameha overpowered the Trio of Danger's Triangle Danger Beam. Nigrissi later used his camouflage to get close to Cabba, and tried to attack him, but he was knocked in the direction of the center of the arena by a single kick from Cabba, and was then flung back in Cabba's direction off the stage, alongside Murisam. After Agnilasa is defeated, Nigrissi is erased alongside all of Universe 3.

In the manga, at the start of the tournament Nigrissi is punched away by Jiren, but manages to remain conscious. He is later blown off the arena alongside Maji Kayo and several other fighters by Kale powering up - but is apparently not eliminated as he is not seen in the stands. Paparoni then tells every Universe 3 team member remaining to fuse into Agnilasa. After Agnilasa is defeated, Nigrissi is shown to have been eliminated and thus is erased along with the rest of Universe 3.

In the anime, Nigrissi later is revived with his universe when Android 17 uses the Super Dragon Balls to resurrect all of the universes that were erased.

Main article: Universal Conflict Saga In the manga, when the Core Area Warriors Kamin and Rags come to Universe 3, Nigrissi confronts them alongside Narirama and Katopesla, however they are defeated by Rags - who traps them in glass.


Anime and Manga

In the anime, as the rest of Team Universe 3 was being upgraded for the Tournament of Power, Nigrissi was described by Eyre as Universe 3's greatest modified warrior.[1] During the Tournament of Power, he was easily knocked away by a barrage of punches from base Vegeta and was knocked to the center of the area by a single kick from base Cabba - immediately going on to be flung back in Cabba's direction and off the stage.

In the manga, he briefly challenges Jiren, who punches him in the face before heading towards another fight at the behest of Dyspo, at which point Goku notes that even as a Super Saiyan he is not on Jiren's radar. Nigrissi is not in the stands after being launched back by Kale's power up, showing that he managed to avoid elimination this way - unlike the likes of Maji Kayo, Shosa and Zirloin, however he is shown eliminated after Agnilasa has been.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes

In the manga, he, Narirama and Catopesra are easily defeated by Rags.
