Papoi (パポイ; Viz "Papoye") was an inhabitant from the South Galaxies.


In the anime, Papoi appeared as a large warrior with large muscles, point ears, long brown hair, and teal-colored skin. He wore a mask topped with what appeared to be a chef's hat, an extravagant cape, white wristbands, a red obi and violet-colored set of trousers.

Part in the Story

In the manga, Papoi is only mentioned by South Kaiō, who explained that he was a great warrior in the South Galaxy.[2] The anime expanded upon this, showing Papoi to be a large, overconfident alien whom the South Kaiō claimed could easily defeat Son Gokū. This is easily disproved after Gokū demonstrates his strength as a Super Saiyan.[3]


  • In the FUNimation dub, Papoi is given a slight background, where the South Kaiō claims that he was a great hero who saved the South Galaxy from "something nasty."[4]
  • Papoi was only mentioned in the manga, never physically appearing. He was given a physical appearance in the anime.
