(つけもの, Tsukemono)/Dilly Pickle: Pickle is a yellow dill-pickle slice 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, Pickles 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 Pickles makes 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 Pickles 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 Pickles is (Note: Pickles 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, Pickles 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 Dasshutsu! Hajike Rowaiaru, 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
(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.

(カッパ, Kappa): Like the name suggests, 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 villain, 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 whiped 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.

The Nameless Student is a student wearing a black, Japanese school uniform. He wears thick glasses, a headband with Todai (東大, Tōdai) written on it, and his face doesn't change from it's rather blank expression. True to his title, his name was never uttered so much as once in either the anime or manga, and very little is known about him. Despite his first appearance being in an enemy base, he seems to be on Bo-bobo's side.
He first appeared in Z-Block, competing in a gameshow alongside Bo-bobo, Don Patch, and Kappa (though Kappa was quickly removed). Throughout the whole show, all three contestents got every question wrong, and eventually went on a train ride together (only to come back to Z-Block seconds later).
The student didn't make any major appearances afterwards, though he appeared in the backrounds occasionally. He appeared in promotional art for the Cyber City arc (as every other character other than Giga or the rebels), and played Cell in the parody of Dragon Ball Z.
