"Basil: We three brothers form a mighty pack--the ferocious Trio of Danger!
Bergamo: We've always had to work together and guard each other's backs, just to survive in that steaming trash heap they call the 9th Universe!
Lavender: If one of us couldn't stop a foe on our own, we three brothers would team up and destroy them with a powerful combination move!
"
— Basil, Bergamo, and Lavender in "Ah, the Uncertainty! A Universe Despairs!"


The Trio of Danger[1][2] (トリオ・デ・デンジャーズ Torio de denjāzu, lit. Trio De Dangers) is a powerful team of Werewolves brothers who were chosen to participate as Universe 9's representatives in the Zeno Expo against Team Universe 7 and as the Universe 9's main fighters in the Tournament of Power.

Overview

Bergamo, Lavender and Basil compose the Trio of Danger. The chaotic conditions of Universe 9 is what led them to develop and utilize their signature attack combination style, the Dangers' Triangle, a triangular stance surrounding the opponent in which the trio constantly switch battle styles and positions to throw the opponent off and crush them. In the anime, Lavender declares that this supreme combination allowed them to bring down foes who could overpower them individually. In addition, their unreadable ki makes it even more difficult for an opponent to get a read on them, including Goku (who can sense godly ki).

The trio's other techniques often include Wolfgang as a starting phrase, such as Wolfgang Pressure and Wolfgang Penetrator. They also use the Triangle Danger Beam as secondary combination attack, consisting of a triple-beam energy wave with the respective beam colors of Bergamo (blue), Basil (red) and Lavender (golden brown) side by side.

Trivia

  • Each member of Trio of Danger were named after a member of the Lamiaceae family of flowering plants commonly known as the mint or deadnettle.
  • Their color scheme and brotherly teamwork bears a resemblance to the three Kai Brothers from the anime Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, who belong to a breed of Japanese dogs called Kai Kens.
  • While Basil's signature kicking fighting style is rare to see, in the anime he is the only member of the trio who does not have a special ability. (Bergamo can absorb an enemy's power and return it twofold and Lavender has Poison Manipulation).
  • Lavender is the only member of the trio that does not display a "Wolfgang"-named attack.
  • Bergamo implied that the three brothers inherently hated their Universe, going as far as calling it "dump like".
  • The way they fought as a team in the Tournament of Power is similar how wolves hunt in real life which involves fighting in packs and surrounding their prey waiting for an opening to strike, which is fitting considering them being a canid-like race, and they are always seen together.
  • Despite being brothers, each of them resemble a different canid species: a Maned Wolf, a Coyote, and Gray Wolf.
