Top is a tall and burly alien humanoid. He has tan colored skin, yellow eyes with dark lines under them, and a large white mustache that covers his mouth. He also sports two perpetually prominent veins on his head. While sporting a well-muscled frame apart from his portly midsection, his overall body-type is noticeably disproportionate: he has comparatively short and skinny legs while his arms very long with massive hands bigger than his entire head. He sports a red and black spandex suit, which appears to be part of his team's attire.
Top is described as being a hot-blooded warrior of righteous justice. This is especially true, as he is the leader the Pride Troopers and has a tendency to name all his techniques as an extension of said justice, such as the Justice Flash - a trait shared with his comrades. He is incredibly flashy in his displays of justice, eager to pose when doing so. In the manga, he is less inclined to pose and does not seem to preach justice as often as his anime counterpart does. He is level-headed, analytical and rational, the full degree of which are shown in the Tournament of Power, such as when he analyzed Dyspo's battle against Hit and acknowledged that the former's opponent was no ordinary warrior.
As the Pride Troopers' leader, he is shown to be respectful to them, such as when he tried not to fill them with distress after learning of the tournament. He also has a humble side, shown when he admits that he is not the strongest in Universe 11 and that his close friend Jiren holds that title, while he is the second most powerful one. In addition, despite his voice reigning supreme over the Pride Troopers, he will not try to stop Jiren from taking on someone in a fight, not only out of respect, but also because he knows that, as powerful as he is, even he cannot deter Jiren.
Top has a strong sense of respect, which extends to the gods, shown when he is offended by Buu accidentally launching an attack towards one of them. This was shown again when asked for forgiveness after abruptly jumping into the arena of Exhibition match and humbly requested to fight Goku. Top's respect extends even to those he initially views as enemies. When initially meeting and battling with Goku, he was quick to label him as an evildoer and a threat to all universes, refusing to be friendly and repeatedly calling him a villain. This desire to punish evil extended to the Tournament of Power, where despite claiming he had no desires for personal matters during the fighting, he clearly wanted a rematch with Goku. However, during the Tournament of Power, when hearing from Goku's teammates about how he influenced and befriended them, he realized his misjudgment of Goku and no longer referred to him as such. From that point on, he viewed Goku as a powerful warrior to defeat, not an evildoer to vanquish. In the manga, Top did not display resentment towards Goku and even appeared to be friendly towards him despite learning of his role in the Tournament of Power and their outcome.
In addition to respect, Top also has a very powerful sense of honor, fairness and fair play, as he criticized and even insulted Android 17 after the latter blasted Brianne de Chateau, Sanka Ku and Su Roas while they were transforming, stating that the pose of a warrior is justice, and that such a display should not be interrupted, to which Brianne acknowledged and thanked his understanding of it. He also believes ritualistic transformations, such as the ones done by the Kamikaze Fireballs, represent true justice. This is likely because Universes 11 and 2 are similar in this regard and, as twins, the mortals on their realms would tend to agree to common methods.
Top is not above taunting his enemies, as he does so to Gohan and Android 17 during their fight. He also shows a dry sense of humor, as when Vegeta brushes him off due to being only the second strongest, Top immediately returns the taunt by also pointing out on how Vegeta too is only the second strongest to sarcastically mock him, infuriating Vegeta.
In spite of his positive traits and stoic disposition, Top has limits. He can show signs of frustration, desperation and animosity when under severe pressure. When initially hearing about the Tournament of Power's rules and the amoral behavior of the Omni-Kings, he was secretly horrified and resorted to going to a bar to calm himself down from the stress. During the actual tournament, his ideals and morals were pushed to their breaking point when his comrade K'nsi was eliminated from the fighting stage, leaving only himself, Jiren and Dyspo left fighting for Universe 11. At that point, Top told his comrades that they were done playing heroics and showed he was willing to set aside and later abandon his beliefs of justice and evil in favor of survival and erasure, and more importantly, power. This new drive to save their universe is what allowed Top to tap into the full depths of his power and transform into a God of Destruction.
Boasting the power of his God of Destruction mode and his more extreme ideals, Top's attitude drastically changes to one of cold cruelty. This is prominently displayed against Frieza, who he seemed to hold a grudge against for torturing him during the trooper's fight with Android 17, and mercilessly tormented him with devastating blows, even voicing his desire to destroy the tyrant if not for the rules of the Tournament of Power. His taunts took a more sadistic and violent turn, such as when after mopping the floor with Frieza, he taunted him with the same phrase Frieza taunted him with earlier ("Trash deserves to be tossed, correct?") while nearly crushing his skull with one hand.
Despite being viewed as honorable by Jiren, when Top is eliminated, the Gray shows great disappointment in him and lost all respect for him, coldly calling him pathetic for losing to Vegeta, who didn't abandon his beliefs, compared to Top, who let go of everything he believed and the very person he was in exchange for power, and yet still lost in the end. Top does not respond to the comment, implying he acknowledges Jiren was right. By this point, Top had returned to his base form and his original personality seems to have resurfaced, and - despite Jiren's lost respect for him - encouraged Jiren to keep fighting and expressed worry for him when he was also eliminated, thanking his friend for fighting so hard to keep their universe from being erased.
Dragon Ball Super
Universe Survival Saga
Main article: Universe Survival Saga
In the anime, Top, clad in a dark hood, is present at the Zeno Expo sharing the platform with Belmod, Marcarita, and Khai of his universe. He initially deflects an energy blast fired from the battle nearby, and said that it was rude for someone to do such a thing to a God.
He later challenges Goku to a fight shortly after Goku defeated Bergamo, believing the latter to be evil for his role in the creation of the Tournament of Power. With permission from Zeno and the Great Priest, he is allowed to fight Goku, who readily accepts the challenge.
The two fight before Top manages to overwhelm Super Saiyan Goku with series of joint locks and submission holds. Just as it seems he would win, Goku enters Super Saiyan Blue and manages to turn the tables on Top. Undeterred, Top continues his fight with Goku and manages to hold his own against him until Goku unleashes an Instant Transmission-combined God Kamehameha at him. Top emerges from the attack with a few scratches but is livid when he sees his uniform torn and condemns the Saiyan for damaging the symbol of pride for his team. He powers up with anger as Goku enters his Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken technique with both preparing to go all out in the fight. However, Great Priest intervenes and stops the fight. Goku approaches Top to thank him for a good fight and compliments his strength however, Top shrugs off Goku's thanks by stating that there is a friend of his that would be even stronger than him: Jiren.
Some time after the fight, he decides to go to a bar, eating snacks with a concerned look in his eyes, realizing how much of his universe's safety is at stake. His General, Kahseral, enters and asks why he is so upset. Just as Top was about to explain why, a call within his universe arises, and he has to stop a foe Dyspo cannot stop alone. Eventually, he does explain the situation to the rest of his comrades and expresses that while the Pride Troopers will be understaffed temporarily, the newbies would take over and understand what it truly means to be a Pride Trooper. He and Dyspo were trying to bring Kahseral back to the bar to recruit him into the tournament, but Kahseral was busy trying to save a cat. After he finally does so, they're ready to depart.
During the tournament, he started out his campaign by briefly clashing with Basil, and then ended up fighting Auta Magetta of Universe 6. Goku attempts to fight Top, however, Murichim of Universe 10 knocked Goku aside. Top reappeared again when Goku finally attempted to fight Jiren and attacked him with his Justice Flash and then told the latter that he sent Kahseral, Tupper, Zoire, Kettle, and Cocotte to take care of the Saiyan while the two of them rest up.
When Brianne de Chateau called out for her fellow warriors, Top was seen with Dyspo as they heard her as Jimizu and Zirloin flew off to join their fellow warriors to watch and cheer on the Kamikaze Fireballs' transformation. After Android 17 interrupted their transformation, Top soon joined Brianne in scolding the android about his disruption of posing and transforming as he states its importance. He is thanked by Brianne for understanding their purpose but is told that they won't hold back as he promises them the same as well. He then rejoined with Dyspo and watched the girls transform into their magical girl forms with Top admitting it is "truly justice". Brianne then unleashed heart shaped explosions that unleashed an odor that filled those who smelt it with love, Top tried to resist it as well as Dyspo, and dodged the attack. He, alongside Jiren and K'nsi, watched Dyspo's fight with Hit, and when he saw Dyspo getting beaten, Top sent in K'nsi to help him. After K'nsi is defeated, Top decides to drop all restraints, even moral ones, in order to save his universe.
Top was then seen throwing a Justice Punch at Cabba, sending him flying into a rock. Afterwards, Top did a pose following his success. Top later watched as Jiren challenged Goku, silently encouraging Jiren to defeat Goku and win the tournament, so he can get his wish from the Super Dragon Balls. He, alongside Dyspo, watched Jiren and Goku's Universe 7's Spirit Bomb collision. After Jiren seemingly vaporized Goku, Top and Dyspo gathered around him protectively when the other warriors prepared to attack. He witnessed that Goku was alive and transformed into his Ultra Instinct Sign form. Top and Dyspo then tried to attack Goku, however they were easily countered and thrown aside. Top tried to use Justice Flash, but Goku casually dodges the attack by walking towards Jiren. Jiren showed Top a hand signal, informing him that his help is not needed.
Much later, Top challenged Vegeta to a fight, but was dismissed by Vegeta as being merely "second fiddle" to Jiren. However, Top retorted that the same went for Vegeta with respect to Goku, causing the enraged Saiyan prince to enter Super Saiyan Blue form and engage Top in battle. When Kale transformed into Legendary Super Saiyan, it distracted Top and Vegeta from their battle. While Top commented that Saiyans are not to be underestimated, Vegeta remarked that among the Saiyans, he is at the top, punching Top away. Top then pushed Vegeta because he was too distracted by Goku and Kefla's battle. Top said he can observe them as much as he wants from the sidelines, before appearing behind him and catching him with Justice Rear Naked Choke, though Vegeta managed to break free. Afterwards, he and Dyspo reunited with Jiren, after the latter stopped meditating due to Ultra Instinct Sign Goku's return, and he discussed how Goku kept on getting stronger and stronger as time went on.
In the manga, Top and Dyspo fought Goku as he attempted to reach Jiren, only for Goku to break free by turning Super Saiyan Blue. The duo soon encountered Vegeta, who knocked Dyspo aside and proceeded to battle Top. Top and Vegeta's battle was interrupted when Kale transformed into the Legendary Super Saiyan, knocking the two off the ring. Top was however saved by Dyspo before he could fully fall off and resumed his battle with Vegeta, powering up to his full power as he did so. When Vegeta achieved Super Saiyan God SS Evolved, Top was flung back onto a piece of rubble and when Dyspo was lured out to try and save them, Frieza destabilized their platform with a Death Beam, leading to their elimination as Jiren refused to save them.
In the anime, after Universe 7 defeats Agnilasa, leaving only two universes left, the remaining warriors of Universe 11 confront the warriors of Universe 7. As Goku and Vegeta do battle with Jiren and Frieza does battle with Dyspo, Top begins his battle against Gohan and Android 17. Top attacks Gohan first, overwhelming the half-Saiyan. however, just before he can strike Gohan, Android 17 attacks Top with a ki blast, knocking him back. Then, Gohan prepares a Ultimate Kamehameha and fires it at Top, but to the utter shock of both Gohan and Android 17, Top is uninjured. The Pride Trooper mocks their strength and says he will rip them to pieces. Gohan eventually breaks off from the fight, leaving Top to fight only Android 17.
Top chases down Android 17 and almost knocks him off the edge. However, Frieza assists 17 and proceeds to torture Top, ultimately severely wounding the latter. At this point, Top decides to abandon his value of justice and focus on survival, and as a result ascends to a God of Destruction, much to the shock and horror of Beerus and Shin. He decides to attack Frieza, who arrogantly believes his Golden Form is more than a match against a God of Destruction, and appears to easily overwhelm and eliminate Frieza with a blast of Energy of Destruction. He returns his attention to 17, who vainly tries to find an opening. Top eventually corners the android, but is once again interrupted by Frieza before he can finish him off. Top challenges Frieza to attack him with everything he has, and Frieza responds by attempting to use a Golden Death Ball. Top easily destroys this attack and viciously beats down Frieza. Top returns one of Frieza's taunts and attempts to kick him off the stage, but Android 17 saves Frieza.
Top and 17 then resume battle. 17's attack is overpowered and is forced to go on the run from Top trying to outsmart him. Eventually 17 is able to use Top's destruction against him burying him under a pile of rocks but Top quickly powers through it and lays into 17 with dozens of ki blasts. 17 is overpowered and Top goes to destroy the arena but is stopped by Frieza who uses his psychic powers on him but is horrified it is having no effect. Jiren, annoyed Top is struggling to eliminate 17 and Frieza suddenly fires a giant Power Impact at them blasting them aside and motions for Top to take Vegeta. Initially Vegeta is powerless against Top and is easily beaten into debris. Top prepares to destroy everything and fires it at Vegeta. Vegeta remembers his family, his promise to Cabba and his pride as a Saiyan and taps deeper into his new power and flies through the attack destroying it and begins to overwhelm Top, with Top powerless to stop him. Vegeta then vows to give him an attack he can't destroy and prepares his Final Explosion once again, prepared to kill himself to stop Top. Top attempts to destroy Vegeta's attack but Vegeta powers his way through it and fires off his attack, destroying all but now a small section of the ring eliminating Top and making him lose his god form. Vegeta is left in a crater still alive but almost out of power. Jiren mocks and insults Top, saying he is disappointed that Top abandoned his principles and still lost in the end, compared to Vegeta, who reigned victorious and still held true to his beliefs.
Top then tensely watches the final battle between Jiren and Goku in his Ultra Instinct Sign form and when he witnesses Jiren blocking Goku's Ultra Instinct Kamehameha, he states that since his first battle with Goku in his Ultra Instinct Sign form and later observing it while the Saiyan was battling Kefla, Jiren was able to analyze and counter his empowered opponent. As the battle between the Saiyan and the Pride Trooper rages on, Top starts to grow concerned from the amount of heat that Goku is emitting in his Ultra Instinct Sign form and was in shock when he sees that Goku is beginning to switch from the defensive half of the form to the offensive half, resulting in the Saiyan countering Jiren's attacks. Top became incredulous at how heated Jiren was becoming in the fight and was utterly shocked upon seeing Goku completing Ultra Instinct and then casually dominating Jiren in the process. During the fight between Goku and Jiren and Jiren's chaotic power up, as Goku rose to his feet after being overwhelmed by Jiren, Belmod asked how he could still stand after all that. Goku's friends responded that it's because he fights for his friends and notjust himself. Top was surprised to hear that in a way, Goku was like him when it came to protecting people.
"What are you doing, Jiren!? Kneeling down at your enemies' feet, is this honestly the way you want your fight to end? Get up, come on! Why would you spend all those years honing your strength, rejecting everything and everyone else just to surrender? For the sake of your own pride, keep fighting to the end. Even if you do not believe in your own absolute power, I have not lost faith and never will. Jiren, you are the strongest. No one is stronger than you. Nothing can make me doubt that."
After Jiren was overwhelmed and seemingly defeated by Android 17 and Frieza, Top encouraged Jiren to not give up as he is not one to accept defeat. Top continues to say that he believes in Jiren and his strength even if Jiren himself does not and will always acknowledge him as the strongest. This motivates Jiren to stand up and continue on fighting, however, as the battle progresses, Jiren is eventually defeated and ringed out by the combined might of Goku, Frieza, and Android 17. Top immediately rushes to Jiren's aid and thanks his friend for fighting his hardest in order to preserve the survival of their universe before being erased along with Universe 11. Later on, when Universe 11 along with the other universes were restored by Android 17's wish, Top approaches Jiren and tells him that despite what Jiren may think, the only reason he was able to stand back up and continue to fight is because Jiren acknowledged Top's words of encouragement which connects to companionship. Top then declares that the next time they meet Universe 7 they will surely win.

Main article: Universal Conflict Saga In the anime, though the battle is unseen, at some point in Universe 11, the evil Saiyan Cumber appears and defeats Top in battle. He then urges Jiren to beat Cumber in his place.
In the manga, both Top and Dyspo battle against Super Saiyan 3 Cumber but even together seem to be at a disadvantage.

Top makes a cameo appearance when Goku mentions the Tournament of Power.
- Manga and Anime
Top is the second most powerful mortal within Universe 11, thanks to which he became candidate as a God of Destruction. His strength is so great that he also serves as a personal bodyguard to both Belmod and Khai. When talking to Vegeta, Goku claims that he was unsure if he could beat Top, however, this feeling goes both ways. Despite his large stature and disproportionately bulky frame, he has shown to be very nimble and graceful in battle. His specialty in battle appears to be joint-locks and submission holds. With a single hand, he was able to effortlessly catch Basil's blast. Upon which, he is able to contain the blast before dispersing it between his hands, leaving Champa surprised.
In the anime, during his fight with Goku, he easily overwhelmed him as a Super Saiyan, nearly crushing him to death. Once Goku turned Super Saiyan Blue, Top could fight on par with him. Once Goku started overwhelming him and besmirched Top's uniform, Top retaliated by unleashing his full power, which Goku reciprocated with his Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken. However, the match was stopped before they could fight in earnest. In the manga, when Top was using his mortal ki, he was able to easily block Goku's attacks overwhelmed the foe from his base to Super Saiyan 3. Once Goku used Super Saiyan God, Top activated his own godly ki and the two proved even. Once Goku used his Completed Super Saiyan Blue and attacked Top, Top got serious, countered and instantly defeated Goku (though this was in part due to Goku underestimated Top or not using his full power). After the battle Top noted that Goku was indeed strong, and that if he had not countered when he did he may have not been able to defeat him.
Next to Jiren, Top is recognized as Universe 11's trump card for their potential victory in the Tournament of Power due to his power, skill and leadership of the Pride Troopers. In the anime, at the tournament, at base strength he could trade punches with Auta Magetta, though was pushed back by Murichim. His Justice Flash was powerful enough to knock Goku through the arena. When watching Dyspo and Hit's battle, Top easily saw through all of Hit's moves. He easily knocked Cabba away with a Justice Punch. Despite his great power, Top is utterly powerless against Ultra Instinct Sign Goku as he was completely oblivious by the exchange between Goku and Jiren mere feet from him. Alongside Dyspo, their assaults were effortlessly repelled by Ultra Instinct Sign Goku, who nonchalantly dodged Top's Justice Flash. Later on, Top was able to clash with Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta.
In the manga he is able to fight near evenly with Perfected Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta. Later, Top is knocked out of the arena by Legendary Super Saiyan Kale with one punch (though he is saved by Dyspo).
In the anime, against Android 17 and Potential Unleashed Gohan, Top was able fend off and pressure both warriors simultaneously. His fists were also strong enough to upturn the ground around him. Top also took an Ultimate Kamehameha from Gohan without any damage, greatly shocking Gohan and Android 17. Later on, Top was able to match Android 17 and dislocate his shoulder. However, Android 17 manages to trap both of them in an Android Barrier, giving Gohan the opportunity to knock both of them off the arena with an Ultimate Kamehameha, however, Top was able to free himself. Against Android 17 alone, Top was able to dodge his barrage of Ki Blasts by running, however, he was unable to break 17's Android Barrier. In a beam clash Top was able to overpower Android 17, and would have knocked him out of the arena, had Frieza not interfered. Top was able to withstand True Golden Frieza's non-lethal Crazy Finger Beam, however, it severely injured him. Top is then overwhelmed by Frieza and Android 17's ki waves.
When Top becomes a God of Destruction, his power skyrockets, to the point that Goku, Vegeta and Jiren momentarily stopped their fight to sense Top's increase in power. A single Energy of Destruction ball from Top was powerful enough to overwhelm Golden Frieza, who previously easily repelled said attack from an assassin (albeit Frieza was still fairly exhausted from defeating Dyspo). At the same time, Top's attack shattered the entire arena into several chunks and change the Null Realm from a green to purple sky, further showing his strength. Top also surrounds himself with Energy of Destruction, which destroys anything it touches, making him immune to the majority of Ki-based attacks. His normal Ki waves also become more powerful, as a Justice Flash was able to shatter Android 17's Android Barrier, something Agnilasa wasn't capable of doing. Top effortlessly destroys Final Form Frieza's Golden Death Ball attack by flicking a tiny Destruction ball, shocking Frieza. Top then effortlessly overpowers Final Form Frieza and states that he could easily destroy him, however he would be disqualified. Despite his power he struggled to catch Android 17, who manages to dodge and evade nearly all of his attack with ease and was briefly held down by Frieza's Paralysis. Against Super Saiyan God SS Evolved Vegeta, Top quickly overwhelmed him - even overpowering his Final Flash using a Justice Blast. However, after Vegeta grows disgusted by the fact that Top cast aside all of his morals in order for more power, it allowed Vegeta to fully adjust to his new form. From this, his power increased tremendously, easily overwhelming Top and his Energy of Destruction. As Top powers up to his maximum and uses a Sphere of Destruction, he is knocked out of the arena by a Final Explosion, which overpowered his attack.

Forms and Transformations
Aura of a God
Main article: Aura of a God
In the manga, due to the training he already underwent as a God of Destruction candidate, Top is able to access godly ki to take on the Aura of a God. In this state, Top's power increases to a whole other level from what it was before - as while using mortal ki he was superior to Super Saiyan 3 Goku's strength, using godly ki allowed him to fight on par with Super Saiyan God Goku and even defeat him in his Perfected Super Saiyan Blue form, though the latter was said to have dropped his guard (not used his full power in the Viz translation).
Main article: Destroyer Form
"Justice and evil. I'm beyond that now. All that matters now is winning and survival."
In the anime, in desperation to win and survive the Tournament of Power, Top made the conscious decision to abandon his ideals of justice. Upon doing so, Top was able to unleash the full power of his Destroyer training, becoming Top the Destroyer (トッポ 破壊神モード Toppo Hakaishin Mōdo, God of Destruction Mode Top). In this state, his skin tone is much darker, and his sclera turn light purple. His disproportionate body becomes balanced out to become slimmer in frame while his build expands with large hardened muscle. He gains a red symbol on his chest (the same symbol as the cuirass for the Universe 11's God of Destruction), and he is surrounded by a purple aura virtually identical to God of Destruction. He is far more powerful than before in this state, which apparently fully rejuvenates him from any previous injuries. This state allows Top to make full usage of godly ki. His aura, also made from Energy of Destruction, can instantly destroy anything that touches. Even in this form, his power is still weaker than Jiren's.
This state, drawing from his desire to live, apparently greatly affects his mentality, as he becomes very disrespectful and even sadistic. At the same time, this state seems to have limits on what he can destroy as Vegeta, once mastering his Super Saiyan God SS Evolved, was able to resist and dispel Top's destruction ki. Also, once weakened enough or knocked out, Top apparently will return to normal.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Top achieves the Supervillain form, through unknown means, sacrificing a portion of his life energy in exchange for a significant increase in power.
