"Well met, Gohan of Earth. I am pleased we crossed paths. But with all my comrades defeated, the fate of the Tenth rests well with me. There are lives I must protect."
Obni is a humanoid being with green skin and long, white hair. He wears a small blue vest-like piece of clothing with a medallion that holds a jewel in the middle. On his abdomen he has dark blue dots. He also wears brown pants.
He is respectful towards his opponents and wanted to challenge even stronger fighters. He presumably cared a lot for his family, as he has a picture of them with him at the time of the tournament. He was courageous enough to put up a last stand against Piccolo and Gohan, with Rubalt.
In the manga, he demonstrates bravery in the face of certain doom, declaring his acceptance of his universe's imminent erasure as he attempts a final stand against Kale.
Dragon Ball Super
Universal Survival Saga
Main article: Universe Survival Saga In the manga, in preparations for the Tournament of Power, Gowasu focused on training Obni's heart instead of physical training. Obuni is one of the ten warriors to represent Team Universe 10.
Obni is later seen alongside Koitsukai, Pancéa, Cabba, Botamo, and Ganos as they heard Brianne de Chateau's cry but let Bikal, Rabanra, and Zarbuto fly off and join their teammates in the Kamikaze Fireballs' transformation. He then witnessed the Fireballs' transformation and when Brianne's heart shaped explosions were fired, Obni smelled the odor from the attack and felt warm and fuzzy inside leaving himself vulnerable to the heart attacks.
After witnessing Gohan defeating Botamo, he challenged Gohan to a fight, using his feints to throw him off until Gohan powered up to his Ultimate form. He was able to withstand Obni's attacks, so he could counterattack. Obni asked for Gohan's name, and said he was glad to have met him. Gohan was able to defeat Obni by blasting him out of the ring with a Kamehameha, making him the last of member of Team Universe 10 to be eliminated. Gowasu told Obni he did a good job, and Obni just sat there with his eyes closed as Zeno and Future Zeno erased him and all of Universe 10.
Additionally, at the time of the universe's elimination and subsequent erasure, Gohan, who defeated Obni, found a picture of the latter with his wife and child, which was erased along with the universe. Following this, Gohan silently mourned this event before continuing with the tournament.
In the manga, Obni fought Piccolo but retreated when his two teammates were knocked off by an invisible fighter from Universe 4. When Kale became a Legendary Super Saiyan and went berserk, Obni briefly fought her before being knocked out of the arena. Universe 10 is then erased.
- Anime and Manga
Obni was capable of outmatching Gohan in his base form, and fighting on par with Potential Unleashed Gohan. It is noted that Gohan is only a moment faster than Obni in speed. Gohan was eventually able to find and beat him by allowing himself to get hit - allowing him to counterattack at the cost of taking damage from Obni's attacks.
Obni was the strongest warrior of Universe 10, given Gowasu's strong trust in his abilities as the last fighter for Universe 10. Also, because of his ability to control his internal energy and create feints, his opponent has to get hit in order to know where he is, which means the opponent has to be strong enough to take the hit and immediately counterattack to even stand a chance against Obni in a head to head battle.
In the manga, Obni fought Comfrey at the start of the tournament. He later went on to fight Piccolo. Later, Obni is able to easily stop himself from being launched off the ring by Legendary Super Saiyan Kale's explosive wave - while the likes of Zirloin, Shosa and Maji Kayo are eliminated by the attack. He briefly manages to hold out against Legendary Super Saiyan Kale, but is then knocked out of the arena.
