Botamo (ボタモ Botamo) is one of the strongest fighters in the Sixth Universe. He is chosen by Champa to participate in the Fighting Tournament of the Gods of Destruction of the Sixth and Seventh Universes🌎, and later also in the Tournament of Power⚔.
Its appearance resembles that of a large yellow bear. It possesses a smooth yellow colored skin with no hair. He also has a brown colored nose and a small round shaped tail. He wears a tank top, a pair of cuffs and a pair of red colored boots with black studs.
Botamo seems to have a lot of confidence in his abilities, but this side of his character leads him to underestimate Son Goku during the tournament between the Sixth and Seventh Universe🌎, in fact when the opponent is in trouble, instead of taking advantage of the moment, he decides not to hit him but makes him understand to keep fighting. According to Son Goku, Botamo relies too much on his physical impressiveness. This overconfidence in his own abilities will lead him to defeat. He seems to have a good friendship with his companion Otta Magetta, with whom he manages to cooperate. Botamo easily passes the written test, which might suggest that he possesses a relevant intelligence (the same cannot be said of his companion Otta Magetta, who manages to pass the test by a whisker).
As in all Dragonball Super sagas, the manga and the anime tell very different events, although there are some elements in common.
Arrived on the Nameless Planet together with his comrades of the Sixth Universe🌎, Botamo passes the written test to enter the tournament quite easily.
As soon as the clash between Son Goku and Botamo begins, the latter hurls himself at the opponent with a remarkable speed surprising him. At the beginning, the warrior of the Sixth Universe seems to have the advantage, because thanks to a flurry of punches he manages to put the Saiyan in difficulty, finally managing to hit him, but without causing him any significant damage.
Afterwards, the warrior⚔ of the Seventh Universe claims to have eaten too much before the fight, so he decides to do some exercise to be 100% ready to fight. While Son Goku is busy running back and forth across the ring, Botamo tries to attack him unsuccessfully, and falls clumsily to the floor several times. Botamo's attempts to hit his opponent with energy waves generated by his ears are futile.
Once Son Goku has recovered, he begins to hit Botamo with a series of punches at supersonic speed (so much so that Krillin himself admits that he can't see his friend's blows), throwing him all over the ring. However, neither Botamo nor Champa seem to be concerned about the large gap between the two fighters⚔.
Although Son Goku is clearly superior in terms of skill, he is unable to do any damage to Botamo, not even using the Kamehameha, since the latter is able to absorb all the blows received by his opponent. As Master Muten says, "Botamo... does not take damage... nor does he consume energy🔋."
The Saiyan uses his head and, taking advantage of the slowness and clumsiness of the warrior of the Sixth Universe🌎, decides to throw him out of the ring. All Botamo's attempts to stop the fighter of the Seventh Universe are useless. Son Goku throws him out of the ring and wins the match. At the end of the match we see a very disappointed and saddened Botamo walking with his head down towards the other fighters of the Sixth Universe.
After the clash with the Saiyan of the Seventh Universe, Botamo doesn't do much within the tournament. He is seen with Cabba, being surprised when Frost transforms, and again when this is beaten by Vegeta. He is very amazed when the Prince of Saiyans transforms into Super Saiyan Blue.
When Vegeta manages to beat Cabba, he takes his unconscious body and gives it to Botamo, who is visibly concerned. All of this makes it clear that Botamo feels a modicum of "concern" for his Sixth Universe comrades.
At the end of the tournament, Botamo returns to his Sixth Universe along with his companions and the Gods, thanks to the cube-shaped spaceship.
Before the start of the tournament, Champa shows Botamo and the other fighters of the Sixth Universe the reward for winning their Universe🌎. The reward is a treasure of very high value, consisting of gold coins, gold bars, jewels and other precious objects. Only Hit refuses this treasure, asking instead for the cube-shaped spaceship🚢.
As soon as Botamo sees the warriors of the Seventh Universe for the first time, he turns an intimidating gesture (the throat slitting gesture) towards them. He easily passes the written test to enter the tournament, along with the other four fighters from his own Universe.
Botamo is the first warrior of the Sixth Universe to have to fight, and his challenger is Son Goku. The warrior of the Sixth Universe immediately starts jumping at very high speeds until he reaches the dome, and then bounces off his opponent several times. Each time he bounces from one side of the ring to the other, he acquires a higher and higher speed, and with this technique he manages to hit the Saiyan, bringing him to the edge of the ring. However, he voluntarily decides not to hit Son Goku, and beckoning him with his hand invites him to try the counterattack⚔. The warrior of the Sixth Universe has full confidence in his abilities.
Botamo criticizes the skills of the Saiyan of the Seventh Universe, calling him a loser. Son Goku, unexpectedly, admits to having eaten too much meat just before the fight and begins to do warm-up exercises to digest it. Botamo, surprised by this statement, begins to hit him with energy balls shot from his mouth. The Saiyan runs around the ring, managing to dodge all of his opponent's blows.
At this point, Goku finishes warming up and unleashes a Kamehameha against Botamo, who despite taking the blow in full doesn't show any physical damage. He also waves his hand at his opponent to return to the fight. The warrior of the Seventh Universe lashes out at his opponent and begins to hit him with a flurry of punches and a kick, however he remains motionless without faltering.
The Sixth 🌎Universe fighter advances and Son Goku is forced to back away, until he decides to drop the Sixth Universe fighter to the ground. Afterwards, he drags him to the edge of the ring and throws him out of the fighting arena. All attempts by the opponent to stop the Saiyan with energy balls are futile. Goku wins the match, and Botamo returns to the other fighters in his own Universe in tears.
At the Tournament of Power Botamo is eliminated by Android 17 who punches him until he is out of the ring. The opponent played with Botamo's body springback in order to eliminate him.
Botamo is chosen as one of the ten warriors of the Sixth Universe to participate in the Tournament of Power. Shortly after the tournament begins, Botamo goes up against Vegeta and then fights with his partner, Otta Magetta, against the Saiyan Prince of the Seventh Universe🌎.
Then he fights against Son Gohan, who, after realizing that the opponent's body is extremely elastic, punches him until he lifts him off the ground and then throws him out of the ring with a Kamehameha.
After the defeat of Saonel and Pilina, Botamo is deleted together with his own universe.
Following the victory of the Seventh Universe, the Sixth Universe is restored along with all its inhabitants.
