General view

Etymology

The name Mr. Popo has no real meaning, as the character was named so only because it sounded "comfortable", according to Akira Toriyama.

Appearance and personality

Mr. Popo has a calm and kind personality. When Goku first meets him, he is feeding the birds around him. He is hospitable by cooking for guests and washing goodwill clothes. He has crafting skills, as he is the one who created the dragon sculpture used for the creation of the Dragon Spheres.

Power

His fighting power was 1030 Ki units. Currently, his power is not known, as he was never employed to his fullest, but he is seen dodging and blocking the blows of Trunks and Goten transformed into First Grade Supersaiyan in Majin-Boo's Arc.

Although his skill as a martial artist is not often displayed, Mr. Popo is an excellent martial arts master. When he is introduced in Dragon Ball, his combat prowess is far superior to that possessed by Goku in almost every aspect when the two meet at the Lookout. After defeating the Great Demon King Piccolo, Goku uses his energy stick to reach Kami's Lookout. When Goku first reaches Kami's Lookout in the anime, he encounters Mr. Popo sitting on a Persian rug. After they greet each other and the battle begins, Goku defends himself well against the genie and tries to perform a Kamehameha against him, which is ultimately swallowed by Mr. Popo. Goku next tries to defeat Mr. Popo using the technique (Enter!) he used on the Great Demon King Piccolo, only he dodged it without difficulty.👿

Mr. Popo takes Goku to Kami. Goku tries to attack Kami for being similar to the Great Demon King Piccolo. After Goku's encounters with Kami, Mr. Popo trains Goku for three years until the young warrior learns everything he knows, and enters the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament to defeat Piccolo with his newly acquired skills. Some of Goku's techniques developed in his three-year training proved invaluable, such as sensing Ki and the Super-Kamehameha, a more lethal version of the Kamehameha. This would be used against Piccolo in the World Martial Arts Tournament. However, Kami survives with very little damage.

Curiosities

  • In the event that a guardian dies before finding a successor, Mr. Popo (who is immortal) takes it upon himself to find one.
  • Mr. Popo seems to be able to speak the Namekian language taught to him by Kami (although Kami learned that he was originally from Namek shortly before his death).
  • To some, Mr. Popo's appearance is a variant of "racist" iconography in the style of the old cartoons. On May 4, 2000, an article written by children's book author Carole Boston Weatherford claimed that Mr. Popo, along with Pokémon #124, Jynx, were derogatory stereotypes because of their black skin color, large lips, and in Mr. Popo's case, lack of teeth. In 2004, Viz Media began to reduce the size of Mr. Popo's large lips digitally in the American release of the Dragon Ball manga. The Pokémon Jynx had changed its skin tone to purple.⚔️
    • In the 4Kids version of Dragon Ball Z Kai, his color changed to blue.

Mr popo

  • Mr. Popo said that only two people could enter the time room, but in Majin-Boo's Arc, Gotenks, Super-Boo and Piccolo enter.
  • In Dragon Ball Z, Kami is Mr. Popo's only friend. Because of this, when Kami and Piccolo do the Fission, he cries.
  • Despite his high level of power, which could even defeat the rejuvenated Great Demon King Piccolo with no problem, he cannot leave his post at the Sacred Temple of Kami, so he was never seen helping against enemies.
