Soba has a sparring match with Goku just before Goku takes off for planet Earth. He is assisted by short Yardrat creatures while fighting Goku. Goku, however, eventually defeats him and they both say their farewells. Soba is exclusive to Dragon Ball Z: Sagas and has not appeared anywhere else in the Dragon Ball franchise.
- Burst Blast – A powered up ki ball.
- Instant Transmission – The teleportation technique created and used by the Yardrats.
- Soba's name is a pun on the Japanese word for noodles, which happens to be "Soba".
- Soba was originally the name of Emperor Pilaf's dog-like henchman, who was later renamed Shu.
- Soba looks very similar to Kishime, one of the three Bio-Warriors that serve Dr. Wheelo. Kishime's name is also a reference to noodles.
- Soba's power level in the game easily surpasses that of the Ginyu Force, which means had they not died on Namek, they might have been unsuccessful in the conquest of planet Yardrat.
