Paprika is a Saiyan Warrior in training who ends up being sucked into the Timespace Rift created by Tekka and Pinich's wish to Shenron. He meets and befriends an Earthling martial artist named Wanta. Tekka's Team first encounter Paprika and Wanta in Satan City. They later appear in Area 4F where they encounter the unconscious Pinich after he is knocked away by Broly after coming to the defense of Tekka's Team who were being chased by Broly who was focused on killing Kid Goku. Tekka's Team decide to let Pinich rest and ask Paprika and Wanta to look after him. After the team defeat Broly who had been transformed into a Great Ape by Towa and Mira, they return to check on Pinich who they discover has befriended Paprika and Wanta who decide to join Pinich's Team and take part in the Timespace Tournament. At some point they encounter and recruit Frieza and Cell who join them in the tournament. During the tournament match with Tekka's Team, Frieza and Cell trick Pinich, Wanta, and Paprika into performing Ultra Fusion, creating Ultra Pinich under the control of Frieza and Cell. Ultra Pinich almost destroys everyone present with a Death Ball, but is foiled by the intervention of Beerus and Whis (who reverses time to prevent the destruction) who cause him to flee. This forces Tekka's Team to chase after him to free the innocent Pinich, Wanta, and Paprika. Ultimately they are successful and after being freed of the EX-Fusion, Pinich performs EX-Fusion with his rival Tekka to defeat Frieza and Cell's EX-Fusion Celluza. With Celluza defeated and Pinich's Team reduced to three members, Tekka's Team goes on to face the Legendary Champion and win the tournament.
After completing the main story by defeating the Legendary Champion and wining the tournament, Paprika becomes scoutable and can be recruited by KOing him with a Zenkai Attack. He can be encountered in Areas 2F, 3F, and 4F.

Main article: Ultra Pinich The Ultra Fusion form created by Paprika performing Five-Way Fusion with Pinich, Wanta, Frieza, and Cell to create the Ultimate Ultra Fusion. However, when first formed, Cell and Frieza are shown to be in control of the Ultra Pinich, making the fusion evil despite the good natures of Pinich, Wanta, and Paprika himself. Due to possessing a Saiyan tail and genetics from Pinich, Paprika, and Cell, Ultra Pinich can use a Power Ball to transform into a Golden Great Ape due to Ultra Pinich having a permanent fused Super Saiyan form. However Frieza and Cell lose progressively control over the form to Pinich (likely assisted by Wanta and Paprika) as Great Ape Ultra Pinich takes damage, allowing Tekka's Team to defeat Ultra Pinich who falls through a portal that defuses them freeing Paprika, Wanta, and Pinich. Unlike other Ultra Fusions, Ultra Pinich can remained fused for an indefinite period.
