The Popo Poco Village Elder is an old man in the village at the foot of Popo Poco Volcano.
When Popo Poco Volcano erupts, the elder of the village prays to the Mountain Spirit and refuses to leave. The elder stays despite two villagers, Mint and her brother Paul, who is the strongest fighter in the villager, trying to make him move. In the village with the other Z Fighters during their trip to Korin Tower, Krillin runs to save Mint from the lava flow, but still, the girl will not leave without the elder. Krillin, Yamcha, Tien Shinhan manage to divert the lava and protect the elder and his village.
