"The other Universe 3 members are being modified for the Tournament of Power. Our Universe 3 shall be the one to survive."
Nigrisshi has a humanoid shape, large, pointed green eyes, pointed ears, and a red mouth with a grey-blue tongue. His entire body is both grey and blue, with the exception of the glowing purple marks on his legs and his gold-colored abs.
Nigrisshi has a habit of talking to put guri at the end of speeches. Although very little is known about him, it appears that he is humble towards deities, and is confident about Narirama's potential. When describing the modifications of his newly modified warriors, he seems utterly confident in their abilities to stay on the platform of the Tournament of Power.

In the anime, when the trio of deities arrive, he begins describing all of the modifications to the robots and cyborgs who were specifically modified to compete in the Tournament of Power.
When the Tournament of Power began, Nigrisshi charged forward and fired a Ki blast from his hands. He saw Nairirama's arms getting smashed by Hit and Basil, and cried out in anguish. Nigrisshi fought Vegeta but he quickly dispatched him by punching him repeatedly in the chest and then knocked away, but not off the stage. He, alongside Caulifla and Kale, then watched as Goku and Vegeta's Final Kamehameha overpowered the Trio De Dangers' Triangle Danger Beam. Nigrisshi later used his camouflage to get close to Cabba, and tried to attack him, but he was knocked off the arena and eliminated by a single kick from Cabba alongside Murisarm. After Anilaza is defeated, Nigrisshi is erased alongside all of Universe 3.
In the manga, at the start of the tournament Nigrisshi is punched away by Jiren, but manages to remain conscious. He is later blown off the arena alongside Maji Kayo and several other fighters by Kale powering up - but is not eliminated as he is not seen in the stands. After Anilaza is defeated, Nigrisshi is shown to have been eliminated and thus is erased along with the rest of Universe 3.
- Manga and Anime
In the anime Prior to the rest of Team Universe 3 being upgraded for the Tournament of Power, Nigrisshi was described by Ea as Universe 3's greatest modified warrior. However, once the team's modifications had been completed, it appeared that several of them possessed much greater power than Nigrisshi. During the Tournament of Power, he was easily knocked away by a barrage of punches from base Vegeta and was knocked out of the arena by a single kick from base Cabba.
In the manga he briefly challenges Jiren, who punches him in the face before heading towards another fight at the behest of Dyspo. Later, Nigrisshi is able to stop himself from being launched off the ring by Legendary Super Saiyan Kale's explosive wave - while the likes of Zirloin, Shosa and Maji Kayo are eliminated by the attack.
