Konatsians are shown to look similar to human-type earthlings, but with large pointed ears and unique hair styles. Extraordinary members of the race, such as Tapion, are able to utilize ki and other energies. It can also be shown that a select few are excellent swordsmen and are able to use magic and advanced technology.
Tapion explains that his people waged war against power hungry aliens known as the Kashvar, who re-awakened the ancient monster Hirudegarn. This war caused nearly half of the Konatsians to perish, until eventually an enchanted sword, and two ocarinas are found. With these, Tapion, his brother Minotia, and a powerful wizard defeated Hirudegarn, and the creature's two halves were sealed inside of the brothers. Tapion and Minotia then were in turn sealed into enchanted music boxes themselves, and sent into space, were they drifted for a thousand years, until being found by Hoi.
It is unknown if the Konatsian race still existed over a thousand years later during the events of Wrath of the Dragon, but it is hinted that they do not. Since Konats were part of the South Area, most likely if the planet survived Hirudegarn, Broly would have destroyed it. Nevertheless, there is a small chance that the Konatsian race do still exist given the fact that there were a few planets in the South Area that were not destroyed by Broly.
