"I never lose! You hairballs can't possibly defeat me. I'm one of the most powerful warriors the Chrome Dome Empire's ever seen. It's time for your utmost termination! This ends now, your dance class is over!"
Dark Yasha and Sambaman are characters of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. They are two characters who, like OVER and Torpedo Girl, share a body. Although they eventually appeared in the manga, Dark Yasha originally appeared in the Bo-bobo GBA game "9 Kiwame Senshi Gyagu Yuugou".
(闇夜叉, Yami Yasha; literally Dark Spirit): 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 Chromedome Castle. Manipulating "Dokuro Shinken" (ドクロ真拳Fist of Skulls), he has various abilities including the ability to create fighting skeletons, manipulate a skull sword or place a special seal that forces an opponent's bones out of their body. Furthermore, he can further transform into a demonic form using a special "Skull Sake" (Skull Juice in the anime). But even if he loses with these abilities, his true form is revealed. It is interesting to note that his name was never said in the English anime.

(サンバマン Sanbaman): Arguably one of the most bizarre-looking characters on the show. He 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 guy. Eventually, when he is defeated, he asks to join Bo-bobo's team, which is responded...by him being strapped to a rocket and sent into space.

- 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.
