"Ooo, you're pretty! I promise not to bruise your face!♥"
— Otokosuki towards Trunks in "Farewell, Dragon World!"

Otokosuki (オトコスキー Otokosukī) is a muscular man who attends the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. In Japanese, Otoko Suki means "man love", a reference to his obvious homosexuality.


Otokosuki is a large, muscular man with small eyes, short dark brown hair with large sideburns,  a large, square cleft chin, a thick neck, a hairy chest and forearms, and a large brown moustache. He wears the attire of a stereotypical homosexual biker, consisting of a black peaked cap with a skull motif, a single black strap across his chest from the left shoulder, black studded gloves, black pants, and black motorcycle boots. In Dragon Ball GT, he wears a blue-grey business suit with a red tie.


Apart from his homosexuality and attraction to Trunks, little is known about Otokosuki's personality. He does seem to be intimidated by particularly powerful fighters, as he froze up in horror alongside the other participants in the tournament who aren't Z-fighters when Vegeta casually backhanded Nok into the billboard while the latter attempted to taunt him.

Majin Buu Saga

Main article: Peaceful World Saga Otokosuki is one of the participants in the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. In the anime, he briefly smiles at Nok, who simply smirks at him. He also briefly, nonverbally flirts with Goten, causing some disturbance from the latter, who comments that Otokosuki "isn't normal" when trying to search out Kid Buu's reincarnation.

Otokosuki flirting with Trunks

In the tournament, Otokosuki is matched against Trunks. Despite clearly over-ranking him, Trunks is hesitant to participate in a match with Otokosuki due to Otokosuki's overt homosexuality, including his flirtingly telling Trunks that he'll go easy on him as well as stating that he, unlike Wild Tiger, was happy with his challenger. Goten jokingly repeats to Trunks that it is the "luck of the draw," in reference to Trunks' response to Goten's complaint about fighting Mr. Buu. Upon witnessing Vegeta backhand Nok into a billboard, significantly injuring the latter in the process, Otokosuki ends up intimidated alongside the rest of the participating fighters, save for the Dragon Team.

Otokosuki later bears witness to Mr. Satan's panic-struck barging into the locker rooms to see if Pan is all right from her fight against Wild Tiger.

Voice Actors


  • Otokosuki bears a great resemblance to the late Glenn Hughes, who played the biker in the Village People, a 1970s disco band commonly associated with homosexuality.
  • In televised airings of "Buu's Reincarnation", Otokosuki's homosexual behavior is largely edited out.
    • On a similar note, the English dub avoids directly stating that his reason for wanting to hold back on his opponent, Trunks, was due to lusting after Trunk's face, instead having him saying "Yo, hmmm, I'll go easy on you, don't worry."
  • Although Otokosuki does not make any appearances in video games, General Blue being shown to lust after Trunks/Future Trunks was most likely intended to reference Otokosuki.
  • Otokosuki is the second homosexual character to appear in the Dragon Ball series, with the first being General Blue.
