Botamo (ボタモ) is a warrior from the 6th Universe. He is one of the five members from 6th Universe Team that represents the 6th Universe in 6th Universe and 7th Universe Hakaishin Selection Martial Arts Competition.
Botamo takes great pride in his immunity to conventional attacks and ki blasts. Botamo appears to despise losing as he was unhappy about his loss when he returned to Team Champa's waiting area. Botamo is also shown to be considerate of others as he was trying to comfort an upset Magetta.
Botamo has the appearance of a rotund, bear-like creature; despite appearances, he does not have yellow fur, but in fact, slick yellow skin. His face is generally composed of a smug expression with narrow eyes, and fitting his bearish appearance, he has a snout, and two ears perched atop of his head. He wears a red tank top, red armbands, and red boots.
Botamo is one of the strongest warriors from his respective universe, where he was able to battle against the likes of Son Gokū, one of the 7th Universe's strongest warriors. Botamo has a myriad of abilities that mostly revolve around taking advantage of his nullification ability. Due to this he was able to take a Kamehameha from point blank.

Hakaishin Champa Arc
Main article: Hakaishin Champa Arc Botamo is one of the members of Team 6th Universe, brought by the Hakaishin to compete in the tournament on the Planet of Nothing. Botamo passed the preliminary written test, and was pitted up against Gokū as his first opponent.
The match begins with Botamo managing to give Gokū trouble. After Gokū is hit, Beerus criticizes Gokū for playing around, although Gokū mentions that he ate earlier and as a result is unable to fight properly. After jogging off the food, Gokū resumes the battle with Botamo.
Although Gokū is stronger and faster than Botamo, he isn't able to inflict any damage against Botamo nor is Botamo's stamina running out; even Gokū's Kamehameha doesn't inflict any damage against Botamo. Suddenly, Gokū has an idea; he pushes Botamo down and drags him near the end of the tournament ring. Gokū lets go of Botamo who retaliates by attacking Gokū. However, Gokū throws him out of the ring. The tournament announcer declares Gokū to be the victor. Botamo returns to Team Champa's waiting area, unhappy about losing so easily.
