Pickle

Pickle

(つけもの, Tsukemono): Pickle is a yellow slice of pickled daikon (dill-pickle slice in the English dub) with arms and legs, who idolizes Bo-bobo. When first seen, he is one of the only survivors of Inafu Village besides Beauty, and like Beauty, wanted to join Bo-bobo. However, Pickle was not given that honor, as Bo-bobo "does not like pickles". The Narrator claims he was written off the show (which for the most part is true), but Pickle makes several short cameos through out the show. However, in the manga, he was supposedly eaten by a dog after the first chapter.

During the Hair Kingdom arc of the series, it turns out Pickle was left behind so he could spy on Bo-bobo's older brother, Bibibi-bi Bi-bibi. He did so by disguising himself as Bi-bibi's daughter, Vita. But while everyone was happy for his return, Don Patch ends up killing him because he doesn't even know what Pickle is. (Note: Pickle is one of the few characters introduced before Don Patch and thus one of the few he never knew)

In the final chapter of the series, Pickle returns thinking he would join in on Bo-bobo's new journey with new girl Yuki. ...But once again, he's denied joining.

Pickle makes a small cameo in Jump Ultimate Stars, by jumping out of Bo-bobo's afro if Bo-bobo wins the fight.

In Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo Escape! Hajike Royale, Pickle is found in a jail cell by Bo-bobo and Beauty. After Bo-bobo refuses to let him let, Pickle manages to break out by himself and follows them. After Don Patch is freed from his cell, Pickles leaves the group.

Game Boy Pig

Piggie

(ゲームボーイブタ)/ Piggie: The Game Boy Pig is yet another recurring character the manga/anime consistently throws in. Like the name suggests, it's a small pig that's consistently playing with a green "Gameboy" video game every time it shows up. The source of the joke comes from the first time Bo-bobo tries a fusion maneuver during his first fight with Don Patch, where it ends up having him playing against the pig due to the fusion's result. The Game Boy Pig shows up usually when we least expect it, either in a crowd or doing something connected with Bo-bobo's antics. In the anime he is named Pocket Game Pig.

The Game Boy Pig does little to nothing to actually assists Bo-bobo and his allies. The only real time it lent a hand was during the battle with Maitel.

During one special panel in the manga, it is revealed that the pig first found his Gameboy abandoned in a garbage pile.

Kappa

Kappa

(カッパ, Kappa): Kappa is a mythical sea demon called a "kappa". He is a kindly creature that wishes no harm upon anyone personally. He assists Bo-bobo a few times throughout the series, but is considered a minor character.

While not a antagonist, this creature is another resident of Evil Blood Mansion who knows the benefits of wearing a stylish raincoat (a pun, since the word kappa in Japanese could either be the mythological water creature or "a raincoat" dependent on the context). He is a kind kappa who saved Don Patch from living umbrellas in the House of Blood Mansion.

He befriended Don Patch, but Bo-bobo kicked him off the team by the time they had reached Z-Block Base. He made short a appearance on a game show during the Z-Block Base saga but was kicked off the game show for being too excited.

He made very small appearances later on. During the Cyber City arc in the anime, he appeared as a cop when Shibito's attack backfired. He appeared in one panel at the end of the Reverse Maruhage Empire arc. During the The Hair Kingdom arc, several kappas (not necessarily Kappa himself) were fished out of Yuko's giant toilet in the center of the arena. They then forced Bo-bobo's enemies to study their homework long and hard, and whipped them repeatedly to motivate them more.

Kappa made one very small appearance during Shinsetsu Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. He was seen in Heppokomaru's flashback, being blown away by one of Heppokomaru's farts.

According to Yoshio Sawai, he was one character who considered joining Bo-bobo's team, but never did.

Kappa happens to be a boss in the Kappa Forest stage in Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo Seriously!!? True Fist Match.

N&Ns

N & N

A bean-like grey creature with a mustache, who claims to be a space traveler. He first appears as a resident of Hajike Block, who tries to help the rebels escape from the Keepers.

After the rebels are attacked by the keepers, N&Ns suddenly appears and tells them to "return to" his "spaceship", which is just a small bike with a platform dolly attached to it. As they escape, he introduces himself as a space traveler and that there's no need to repay him since he rescued them on a whim.

However, N&Ns' escape attempt falls apart when he claims his ship's steering is broken, much to Beauty's pity. As he "struggles" to control his ship, his last resort to disconnect the ship's "main engine" in order to "spare their lives", which disconnects the platform dolly the rebels were riding on, while N&Ns just smacks into the base's front gate. While unconscious, he writes "wall" in the dirt in hiragana characters.

As a mob of hajikelist prepare to fight the rebels, during their return to the front gate, N&Ns returns to save the gang again. However a sentient spaceship named Apollo, and offers the rebels a ride on a better ride, much to their delight. N&Ns tries to convince the rebels not to go with Apollo, claiming that he's a space policeman here to sent them "back to Mars", and says that he will protect them. However, the rebels get on Apollo's spaceship anyway, while N&Ns does hand gestures in the form of his initials.

N&N also becomes an assistant for former enemies who come to his block, taking away Rice from Neo Hair-Hunt Land MAX after he falls to Lambada and even befriending Ochoboguchi-kun after Bo-bobo defeats him.

After complementing each other's strength and introducing themselves, a friendship blooms between them and they go on to do many things together.

However, Gunkan wakes up one morning to find Flowerman mortally injured. Flowerman wakes up and tells him that he made a big mistake in being dragged into the Flower Wars (花大戦, Hana Taisen) without realizing it.
