Torbie has an insectoid figure, which looks remarkably similar to Perfect Cell. His exoskeleton is of reddish color and he also has two large wings growing on his back.

Personality

He takes his battles very seriously, which means he is thrown completely off guard when Tapkar decides to surrender due to him tiring himself out.

Torbie has a few cameo appearances later in the series, notably when Kid Buu is attacking Grand Kai's planet in the Kid Buu Saga.[1][2]

Trivia

  • His name is a reference to his insectoid appearance.
  • The form of Torbie's head looks slightly similar to that of Darth Vader's helmet. Although it could also reflect the exact opposite of the shape of Cell's head, as Torbie's physical build is similar to that of Perfect Cell. Both Torbie and Cell are voiced by Dameon Clarke in the FUNimation dub.
