"As this is the first chance we've had to fight or what not, I'll be gentle."
Caroni (カロニー, Karonī) is one of Mr. Satan's top two students. He is tall with long blonde hair and has a ladies-man attitude. The only attack of his shown is Beautiful Flying Rose Attack, which he uses against Perfect Cell.
It seems that he is a popular martial artist among women. His manager Miss Piiza explains that as a master of Kuuchuu-Sappou [mid-air killer kenpou], he is even capable of catching a flying swallow. He has the sort of snobbish personality as to scatter roses before fighting.

Caroni fights Perfect Cell first in the Cell Games only to be easily thrown from the ring from Perfect Cell's energy. Mr. Satan states Caroni was like the son he never had and that he would never live up to his father. Saying that he is like the son he never had implies that he is not related to Mr. Satan, but is one of his best students.
Caroni watches the entire battle between Cell and the Z Fighters. At first, he doubts that Cell is capable of such power. But as Cell devastates the entire arena, he is convinced along with Pirozhki that he heavily underestimated the magnitude of Cell's strength. As Mr. Satan doubts Cell's power, Caroni becomes frustrated as to how his mentor can still feel that way after witnessing Cell's strength first-hand even incredulously yelling, "I can't believe you're still saying that!" after Mr. Satan still claims it is a trick. However, Caroni and Pirozhki both remain loyal to Mr. Satan, and even when Mr. Satan takes credit for defeating Cell, Caroni sticks with him.

Techniques and special abilities
- Beautiful Flying Rose Attack – Caroni jumps up high in the air and comes flying down to assumably ram his opponent. We never really know how this move is finished off as Caroni never fully completed this attack. The only time Caroni is shown using this technique is against Perfect Cell, to no avail, as Cell is able to increase his power and send Caroni flying high into the air.
