Possible Opponents[]


Formerly a bandit who lived in the Diablo Desert along with Puar, Yamcha robbed any travelers who passed by until the fateful day he encountered Goku, Bulma, and Oolong. After battling Goku twice and upon discovering their goal to gather the seven Dragon Balls, he gained their trust and traveled alongside them, planning to take the wish for himself to overcome his phobia of girls. Instead, he ended up saving the gang from Goku's Great Ape form, conquering his phobia during this, and becoming a valued friend and ally of Goku and company.

While he has since been outclassed by Goku and others, Yamcha is still one of the most powerful human martial artists on Earth and is always prepared to help whenever he can.
