"Think of it as a ladder. On the bottom rung is all of space. Higher up is Hell and then Snake Way. At the next level are the planets of the four kais who oversee their parts of the universe. And higher still, above the four kais and all the rest is the Grand Kai's planet."
— "Tournament Begins"

Olibu is a deceased fighter representing the North Quadrant and, next to Goku, is its greatest fighter in Other World. King Kai stated that most of Earth's heroic legends are based off of Olibu's acts of heroism during his life.



Olibu and Goku prepare for the Tournament

Olibu appears as a very large, muscular man. He is at least two feet taller than Goku, and has a large muscular body. He has long blonde hair and purple eyes. He dons white Ancient Greek-style robes with brown suspenders and belt. He wears white bands on his wrists and shins, and dons large light brown boots. He also wears an orange headband.



Olibu kicks Pikkon

After his acts of great heroism on Earth during his lifetime, Olibu was granted access to live and train on the Grand Kai's planet. He was working on his 10,000 years of training when Goku meets him in the Other World. During the Other World Tournament, Olibu beats Chapuchai, and later battles but loses to Pikkon in the quarter-finals.

Later, Olibu makes a cameo appearance, along with Mijorin and Maraikoh, in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn.

During the Kid Buu Saga, he is seen with another fighter sparring with Yamcha, and taunted Kid Buu along with Pikkon. Olibu's last appearance in the TV series is when he along with hundreds of other fighters watch Goku's battle with Kid Buu.

  • According to the booklet included with FUNimation Entertainment's Dragon Box Five, his character design is essentially Recoome's body with Android 16's face.
  • Olibu may be based on Hercules in terms of having "heroic legends" being based on him, as King Kai himself suggested. He also resembles He-Man from the Masters of the Universe series, and bears some resemblance to Conan the Barbarian as well as Thor from Marvel Comics, which are all based on the same Hercules-type hero stereotype.
