Renso (レンソウ Rensou) is a Saiyan from Universe 6. He is a retired captain of the Sadala Defense Forces and the mentor of Cabba. He is also the older brother of Caulifla, the leader of a group of Saiyan punks. He only appears in the anime.
Renso has black hair with a widow's peak, which he wears in a ponytail. He has a chinbeard and wears Japanese style clothing with the exception of his buckled belt. He also wears a dark blue tunic with a dark blue hakama and sandals. Over his tunic, he has a long brown jacket.
Renso is a humble Saiyan warrior who knows of his limitations and would not go into battle with an injury even if the universe is at stake, knowing that fighting with an injury would do more harm than good in any situation (especially as big as a battle royal with 80 fighters participating). He is also proud of the pupils he trained and amazed at Cabba's ability to turn into a Super Saiyan, awed at the form's immense strength that Cabba can use for good.

Main article: Universe Survival Saga Renso is visited by Cabba and was asked to join Team Universe 6 to compete in the Tournament of Power. Renso, however, declines knowing he is not as strong as he used to be, and due to his injured leg. He then suggests Cabba to go ask his younger sister to join the team as her potential and power is higher than his.
When Team Universe 6 lost in the Tournament of Power, Renso was erased with the rest of Universe 6. He is later revived when the erased universes were restored by Super Shenron from Android 17's wish at the end of the Tournament.
