Nok (ノック Nokku) is a contestant who participates in the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament.


Nok is a young man sporting long, reddish-brown hair. He is shown wearing a black shirt with a white letter Y on it and an orange bandana.


Not much is known about Nok, but he seems to have no respect for the elderly, making it his first priority to mock Vegeta's age. He also seemed to love intimidating those he deemed weaker than him, as he was the primary reason why Uub was overcome with ring fright just as he was about to face Goku.

Majin Buu Saga[]



Nok is a contestant in the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. When he and the other fighters were being presented, he noticed Otokosuki smiling (presumably from being aroused by Nok) and gave a coy smirk in response. In the first round of the tournament, Nok is set to fight Vegeta. During the warming up, Nok comes up to Vegeta and tells him about how he will lose, continuously taunting the "old man". Eventually fed up with Nok's harassment, the Saiyan lightly backhands the punk without turning around and sends him flying across the arena into a wall, unconscious, while Vegeta tells the others to inform the officials that Nok had "forfeited" the match (the unconscious Nok unable to do anything about it).[1] The rest of the Dragon Team were amused, Bulla was impressed with Vegeta's strength, and Bulma was upset that Vegeta had to act so soon to do so, preferring that he at least wait until they actually faced up. Nok was later carried off the arena by tournament medics to have his injuries attended to.

Due to an error in the next episode, Nok seemed to be back in the match unscathed due to one of the officials trying to stop him and Captain Chicken from leaving the premises (Captain Chicken and, ironically, Nok, got fearful of Uub's power when Uub was fighting Goku, the irony being that he contributed to Uub's ring fright). He then managed to escape alongside Captain Chicken, explaining that he had to go on a bathroom break.
