Biography

Dragon Ball Super

Universal Survival Saga

Main article: Universe Survival Saga Tupper was one of the many Pride Troopers chosen to represent Universe 11 in the Tournament of Power. When the Tournament started, Tupper was seen clashing with Obuni. He showed up alongside Kahseral, Zoiray, Kettol, and Cocotte as they introduced themselves and posed with their intentions to avenge Vuon as they took on Goku, Caulifla, and Kale.

Tupper held Goku in a grip lock and took on his Petrified form to make things difficult for him and left him vulnerable to Zoiray's Justice Spin. When Tupper kept getting heavier, and just when Goku seemed finished, he was blasted in the back by Android 18, forcing him to let go. After Zoiray attacked the two Z-Fighters with his Justice Spin, Tupper went into his spinning attack and went into the tornado attack to make the Double Pride Spin and directly attacked 18, but she reversed his attack by holding him up her head and sent him spinning towards the end of the arena. He would have been saved when he stopped, but his weight caused the arena to crack, and he fell out of bounds in seconds.

After the rest of Team Universe 11 is eliminated, Tupper is erased along with Universe 11 by the Zenos. He is later revived with the rest of Universe 11 when Android 17 uses the Super Dragon Balls to resurrect all of the universes that were erased.

Power

Tupper has the ability to control his weight and petrify himself. When the Tournament of Power began, Tupper was able to match Obuni in combat. He was able to hold base Goku in a grip lock, with base Goku being unable to get out. However, in the manga, Super Saiyan Goku was effortlessly able to break free. In the anime, Android 18 was able to damage him with ki blasts and easily lifted and threw him with just one arm.

Together with Zoiray, the Double Pride Spin is strong enough to damage Kachi Katchin.

However, in the end his abilities turned out to be his downfall as his weight caused the arena under him to crack, and he fell out of bounds.
