"Son Gohan. I'm grateful that I met you. But I carry the fate of Universe 10. I have something to protect!"
Gohan, Show No Mercy! Showdown with Universe 10!!

Obuni (オブニ Obuni) is a warrior from Universe 10 and a member of Team Universe 10. Obuni is brave, respectful, and likes to challenge himself.


Obuni 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.


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 Obuni's heart instead of physical training.[2] Obuni is one of the ten warriors to represent Team Universe 10.

In the anime, when the Tournament of Power began, Obuni clashed with Tupper. Later on, he went up against Vegeta and was then sent back when Vegeta punched him in the chest several times.

Obuni vs Kale KiBlasters.

Kale's Blaster Meteor go towards Obuni.

When Kale unleashed a Blaster Meteor in her Legendary Super Saiyan form, Obuni is seen jumping out of the way of the attack alongside The Preecho, Monna, and Shantza.

Vikal vs Panchia

Obuni and other warriors, hearing the cry of Brianne.

Obuni is later seen alongside Koitsukai, Panchia, Cabba, Botamo, and Ganos as they heard Brianne de Chateau's cry but let Vikal, 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, Obuni smelled the odor from the attack and felt warm and fuzzy inside leaving himself vulnerable to the heart attacks.

Obuni vs Gohan

Obuni vs. Gohan

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 Obuni's attacks, so he could counterattack. Obuni asked for Gohan's name, and said he was glad to have met him. Gohan was able to defeat Obuni 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 Obuni he did a good job, and Obuni 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 Obuni, 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, Obuni 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, Obuni briefly fought her before being knocked out of the arena. Universe 10 is then erased.

Obuni is later revived with the rest of Universe 10 when Android 17 uses the Super Dragon Balls to resurrect all of the universes that were erased.


Anime and Manga

In the anime, when the Tournament of Power began, Obuni was able to match an elite Pride Trooper, Tupper in combat. He was easily knocked away by a barrage of punches from base Vegeta.

Obuni 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 Obuni 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 Obuni's attacks.

Obuni 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 Obuni in a head to head battle.

In the manga, Obuni fought Comfrey at the start of the tournament. He later went on to fight Piccolo. Later, Obuni 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.
