BackgroundEdit

Dark Yasha Edit

Initially appearing as a serious older man in a kimono, this warrior becomes Bo-bobo's main opponent in the death battle arena "Bottle Edge" (filled with giant water bottles) in the first true stage of the journey to Maruhage Castle.

ホネのあるヤツをもとめて電車一武道会に参戦したサイレントな男。使う技は「ドクロ真拳」。その名の通り不気味なドクロを出現させて攻撃するぞ。電車一の称号にふさわしい(?)攻撃力でボーボボたちの前に立ちふさがる。

SambamanEdit

A round bizarre-looking creature, who is Dark Yasha's true form. Sambaman's attacks cause anyone who hears and/or witnesses them to begin dancing. He also has a special juice which is supposed to make people ugly, but it ends up turning Bobobo and Don Patch into fruits, and Tokoro Tennosuke into a pizza delivery man. Eventually, when he is defeated, he asks to join Bo-bobo's team, to which Bo-bobo responds by strapping him to a rocket and launching him into space.

Trivia Edit

  • Being a white-haired male with an aggressive personality, and a nonsensical transformation makes him similar to OVER (and later Shiryuen Kamara). Whether or not there was any connection between them, was never revealed.
  • For some reason, Dark Yasha's name is never referred to in the English dub of anime.
