"You should never judge a fight on the first fall."
With long red-purple sideburns, he is the strong and silent type of the group. While in the Japanese version it is "Unaju" (eel rice), in the Ocean Dub, his battle phrase is "Pepperoni"; however, in the FUNimation Dub his battle phrase has been changed to "Cheese".
Sansho is first seen when he attacks Piccolo with Ginger and Nicky. He and his comrades then kidnap Gohan at Goku's house in order to have the Dragon Ball on his hat. Later, Sansho and Ginger find and bring the last Dragon Balls to Garlic Jr. who summons Shenron and wishes for immortality. Sansho, Ginger and Nicky fight Goku after Goku arrives at Garlic Jr.'s fortress to save Gohan. At one point, Sansho becomes separated from his comrades and tries to attack Krillin but is stopped by Piccolo. Though he states that he does not need Ginger and Nicky's help to finish the Namekian off, he is still quickly slain after Piccolo punches him through several pillars and is destroyed by a Ki Blast.
