Biography

Background

Amond

Amond

He was originally an atrocious criminal who rampaged throughout the entire galaxy. One day, he was arrested by the Galactic Patrol and imprisoned on planet Nutts. However, that same day, the low-class Saiyan Turles attacked the planet, which allowed Amond to make his escape. Along the way, he met up with Turles, who then recruited him into his squad.[1]

The Tree of Might

After being recruited by Turles, Amond becomes second in command after Turles himself. He has the power to spin himself in the manner of a small tornado, capable of deflecting even ki-based techniques such as Krillin's Destructo Disc. Amond is killed during Goku's Kaio-ken rampage against Turles' men when Goku gives Amond a bone-crushing knee-kick to his stomach.

Power

In Dragon Ball Cardass and the movie pamphlet for The Tree of Might state that Amond has a power level of 9,100.

In the movie Tree of Might, Amond is shown to not only handle and defeat Krillin easily but countered the latter's Destructo-Disk as well. Later he was easily defeated and killed by a Kaio-Ken empowered Goku.

Trivia

  • His name is a pun on the nut almond. This pun is reinforced further as he was imprisoned on planet Nutts.
  • Amond is notable for being the only film character known to have been arrested by the Galactic Patrol. Presumably, Turles' role in freeing him and his recruitment in the organization likely played a role in the Galactic Patrol viewing Turles Crusher Corps. as a more serious threat and may have caused their leader Turles to become more well known among the Galactic Patrol as he is revealed to be a wanted criminal by Jaco in Xenoverse 2 which makes sense consider Turles recruited a known criminal into his organization and his invasion of Nutts facilitated Amond’s escape from imprisonment which would have likely caused Turles to be classified as a wanted criminal were he not considered such before the invasion of Nutts. It should also be noted that since Amond, Turles, and the rest of the Crusher Corps. are actually competitors of the Galactic Frieza Army (as Turles seeks to overthrow Frieza) they are not protected from arrest by being a part of Frieza's empire which was considered off limits by the Galactic Patrol after they were defeated by Frieza and his army. However, it is implied by Turles in Xenoverse 2 that they have no fear of being arrested by the Galactic Patrol presumably due to their power being greater thanks to their consumption of the Fruit of the Tree of Might. His status as the Crusher Corps. number two likely increased Amond's own reputation among the Galactic Patrol after he escaped imprisonment given that he became the second in command of a dangerous criminal organization.
