The Pride Troopers (プライドトルーパーズ Puraido Torūpāsu) are a very powerful hero team who operate in Universe 11. They are led by Toppo.[1] The Pride Troopers work under their God of Destruction Belmod,[2] and thus can be classified as agents of destruction.

The most elite Pride Troopers made up Team Universe 11 during the Tournament of Power.

Description

The base of the Pride Troopers is on an unknown planet in Universe 11. When evil attacks, the Pride Troopers are called out to travel to the planet and eliminate any threats. The team seemingly has at least several bases among galaxy including one on the planet Netfiss.

Trivia

  • The Pride Troopers uniform is a red and black colored spandex. Likewise, their members seem to also have a red aura.
  • They are like a good counterpart to the Ginyu Force, being a team of superheroes inspired by super sentai teams.
    • The Tournament of Power heavily reinforces this reference. When the entire team posed, this caused a multicolored explosion behind them, a common trope in the super sentai genre.
    • When the episode "The Impending Warriors of Justice! The Pride Troopers!!" was aired in Japan, "Ginyu Force" became a trending topic more than "Dragon Ball Super" on Twitter in Japanese as audiences clearly associated Ginyu Force and Pride Troopers.
  • They are named after kitchen tools.
  • The name of Planet Netfiss, one of the team's bases, seemingly comes from fitness.
