Denbo (田ボ), occasionally called Denbo-chan (田ボちゃん ) is a fusion character in the anime and manga of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.
Means of Fusion
While preparing to fuse with Don Patch into BoboPatch, J uses his Super Fist of the Black Sun to teleport Dengakuman in the way. Dengakuman knocks Don Patch out of the way, who promptly glides into Bo-bobo's pants, creating the unexpected female fusion: Denbo! Unlike most fusions, Denbo lasts for Six Hours (Five Hours in dub) instead of 1 minute.
Denbo has Blonde hair going down her back before splitting into two separate braids, a magical girl outfit complete with blue blouse with exposed midriff, blue mini-skirt and go-go boots, wing shaped barettes and a heart shoulder guard on her left shoulder. Like the magical girl-styled heroine they've become, Denbo has a cheerful, optimistic attitude and is always trying to make people happy. But while she does seem slightly air-headed, she is prone to fits of violence whenever things don't go her way and takes them out on the nearest opponent. For some strange reason, she also has the ability to speak Korean.
- Nunchucks: A gift from her father of the Ijutal House (merely seen as a magical star). While Denbo does not see herself worthy of them at first, she actually can use them with great ease and pleasure! She is even seen with a completely different personality whenever she wields them.
- ONE SONG Museum: An "excellently secret" Hanage Shinken attack, Denbo uses it to unleash a dimension similar to a Japanese music program. Those who sing while inside this world have everything they are singing about instantly come to life. (similar to the video backgrounds used for Karaoke). The power of the music is measured by a special meter: the further it is filled, the more powerful the effect of the songs in this world are.
- Hanage Shinken: Like Bo-bobo, Denbo can use nosehair attacks. Her special technique, Holy Radical Ceremony/Special Nostril Missile, unleashes a powerful double-stream nosehair attack gathered from her singing power within ONE SONG Museum.

Denbo also has an upgraded form called Super Denbo (スーパー田ボ, Supa Denbo) . This form is accessed when Bo-bobo gains his Super Bo-bobo abilities.
Means of Fusion
After The Three Sacks fuse together through their Dark Fist of Three Sacks into a more powerful form, Bo-bobo (in his "super form") decides to use a fusion to handle this. After a fight with Don Patch and Tokoro Tennosuke into getting inside his afro, Dengakuman wins and leads to Bo-bobo to becoming a more powerful Denbo.
It is unknown as to how long Super Denbo can last, but judging by how long the fight lasted, one can assume she lasts only 1 minute.
Similar to the original Denbo, with slight adaptations. Her wing hairclips are now double and she now adorns a longer skirt with hearts on it. Her bust is slightly bigger. She also has a slightly higher pitched voice in the dub, but her personality is basically the same as the original Denbo.
- Denbo Dream Picture-Book Paradise/Denbo's Interactive Picture Book: A special technique used by Denbo on her opponent that summons a magical children's picture book in order to bring her opponents to peace. Similar to an activity book, Denbo forces her victims to go through one strange puzzle or activity after another. For each one her opponent gets wrong or does not do with enough time, super-deformed Denbo servants punish the player on her behalf. The title of this book is called Thoughtful Denbo-chan's Heartbreaking Trip/(Denbo's Dark Journey Into My Painful Past).
