Vampa Beetles, also known as Goliamites[1] or Large Mites[2] (大ダニ Ōdani), are a species of bugs found on planet Vampa.

Overview

Vampa Beetles live on Planet Vampa and are capable of sucking out nutrients from living beings, as seen when they surround Beets and Paragus and begin to drink from the beast they're standing on top of. Broly kills one of them when called by his father to help him, not long after Lemo and Cheelai arrived. Since Broly has been shown eating them and their eggs, they seem to be edible. But their flesh is sour and foul tasting according to Cheelai and Lemo.

Power

These creatures are very powerful life-forms, as Paragus states that a power level of 920 would not be enough to beat one. Paragus, whose power level was 4,200 was too intimidated to fight one and chose to call Broly instead. However, they were defeated by the young Great Ape Broly - whose power level could go from 9,200 - 100,000.

Despite their power, a single Vampa Beetle is no match for a Vampa Beast which will prey upon Vampa Beetles whom are both the Vampa Beast's natural prey and parasites. As a result, Vampa Beetles have evolved to feed on Vampa Beasts in groups to increase their odds of successfully feeding. However, Vampa Beetles will not hesitate to predate on non-native lifeforms such as Paragus, Beets, Broly, Cheelai, and Lemo. This along with their mobility makes them the second most dangerous lifeform native to Vampa.

Abilities

  • Tick Needle - Vampa Beetles have a syringe-like tongue which they use to suck nutrients from their hosts and prey (primarily Vampa Beasts). Named in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle where it appears as Vampa Beetle's Super Attack.
    • Energy Absorption - Similar to Cell's Tail, a Vampa Beetle tongue can absorb nutrients from its victims though their method of feeding on Vampa Beasts tends to be more parasitic due to their size and strength.
  • Flight - The ability to fly by using ki. Used in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.
