The Pride Troopers (プライドトルーパーズ Puraido Torūpāsu) are a very powerful hero team who operate in Universe 11. They are led by Toppo. The Pride Troopers work under their God of Destruction Belmod, and thus can be classified as agents of destruction.
The base of the Pride Troopers is on an unknown planet in Universe 11. The Pride Troopers were originally just a motley crew of people with different ideologies and backgrounds, though they grouped together due to all being on the side of justice. When evil attacks, the Pride Troopers are called out to travel to the planet and eliminate any threats. The team seemingly has at least several bases among the galaxy, including one on the planet Netfiss.
- Double Cannon Maximum (Kahseral & Dyspo)
- Double Pride Spin (Tupper & Zoiray)
- United Justice Stream (Kahseral, Cocotte, Kettol & Zoiray)
- Toppo, Kahseral and Dyspo vs. a Drakiyan and Aragney (Anime only)
- Toppo, Jiren, Dyspo, Kunshi, Tupper, Zoiray, Vuon, Cocotte, and Kahseral vs. Choki and his spawn (Manga only)
Video Games Appearances
Jiren appears as a playable character in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 as part of the Extra Pack 2 DLC. The game also introduces Jiren's future counterpart in the Infinite History Saga who originates from Universe 11 in an alternate version of Future Trunks' timeline and was a member of the Pride Troopers of that timeline before Dabura's influence caused him to leave his universe to assist Goku Black and Future Zamasu's in carrying out their Project Zero Mortals.
"A mustache modelled after that of Toppo, warrior of freedom and leader of the Pride Troopers, heroes sworn to protect Universe 11."
— Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Toppo's Mustache description
Jiren and Future Jiren are the only members of the Pride Troopers to appear in Xenoverse 2, though Toppo is referenced by the Toppo's Mustache Accessory and his Super Soul "Hmph! For justice!".
"A custom uniform worn only by the Pride Troopers, heroes sworn to protect Universe 11."

Additionally the Future Warrior can obtain a Pride Trooper Uniform as an unlockable outfit. Both Toppo's Mustache and the Pride Trooper Uniform can be obtained as random rewards in New Parallel Quest 114: "The Majin Revival Plan" which appears as part of the Extra Pack 1 DLC.
- The Pride Troopers uniform is a red and black colored spandex. Likewise, their members seem to also have a red aura.
- They are like a good counterpart to the Ginyu Force, being a team of superheroes inspired by Super Sentai teams.
- The Tournament of Power heavily reinforces this reference. When the entire team posed, this caused a multicolored explosion behind them, a common trope in the super sentai genre.
- When "episode 101" aired in Japan, "Ginyu Force" became a trending topic more than "Dragon Ball Super" on Twitter in Japanese as audiences clearly associated Ginyu Force and Pride Troopers.
- They are named after kitchen tools.
- The name of Planet Netfiss, one of the team's bases, seemingly comes from fitness.
