Paparoni (パパロニ Paparoni) is a warrior from Universe 3 and a member of Team Universe 3. He controls all of the artificially intelligent machine lifeforms on Team Universe 3.[1]


He has dark purple skin, white curly hair cut in the shape of a Mohawk, and a matching goatee. He wears a monocle, a white suit with a red neckerchief, and carries a brown staff with a golden end, and a blue orb that sits on top. Pretty dapper.


Paparoni appears to be very confident as seen when he expertly twirls his staff while his team is being announced by the Great Priest. This confidence was shaken when he felt Jiren's power, and later as he watched Goku and Jiren fight. Despite this, Paparoni still approached Jiren, seemingly wanting to fight him after he appeared to defeat Goku.

Main article: Universe Survival Saga Paparoni was called upon by Mosco, Ea, and Campari to participate in the Tournament of Power. He is later seen alongside his team at the Tournament of Power. When the tournament begins, Paparoni starts fighting Rabanra. Afterwards, Paparoni tried to land a punch on Android 18, only for her to dodge it and kick him in the head afterwards. Paparoni later fought Zirloin, but they stopped fighting when they sensed Jiren's power, and watched his and Goku's fight. After Goku was seemingly destroyed by Jiren deflecting the Universe 7 Spirit Bomb back at him, Paparoni, appeared alongside the crater, seemingly ready to fight Jiren, but then Goku emerged, having unlocked the Ultra Instinct transformation.

When the Tournament of Power began, Paparoni was able to match Rabanra in combat. He was easily kicked in the head by Android 18 and knocked down when he attempted to attack her.

    • It is possible that, due to his modifications, the cane could be seen as an extension of him, and not as a weapon to kill like similar of a spear.
