The Three Sacks (3ぶくろ, San-Bukuro; Triple Bag in the English dub) are characters in the anime and manga series of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. They are members of the Reverse Maruhage Empire. They appear during Episodes 75 and 76, however during the later part of 75, after losing a team mate, they still refer to their technique as "Dark Fist of Three Sacks" even though there's only two of them.
The three sacks are a trio of Paper bags who are members of the "Reverse Maruhage Four Heavenly Kings", though they all count as one entity. They consistently stick together using a head and shoulders stance as "The Three Sacks" but soon drop the stance when they lose a team mate.
(Known as Old Man Bag in the English dub): A light-blue bag black mustache. He is first implied as the spokesman of the brothers. His only shown power is summoning the Table of Sacrifices. Bo-bobo popped him at the beginning of the fight by screaming inside of him.
(Known as Takochu Bag in the English dub): A red sack with a puckered mouth. He is the longest lasting of the three sacks. When his brothers have been defeated, he fused them with their Yamiken.
(Known as Burikko Bag in the English dub): A yellow sack with red cheeks. He is sadistic and easily gets angry. He is defeated by Bo-bobo's "Nosehair Sword".
Their abilities of "Sanbukuro Yamiken" (Sanbakuro Yami Shinken 3袋闇真拳 in the anime; Dark Fist of Three Sacks) releases attacks, from blunt objects to powerful blasts (Fist of three bags, Grab bag of fun), from inside their bodies and towards their opponents(Fist of three bags, Angry Bag DX/Temper Tantrum).
When they are first seen, they are discussing the sacrifices needed to gather the energy to release Hydrate's castle from the underground. The current sacrifices include Hanpen, Rem, Lambada, and Serviceman. When Bo-bobo and his friend show up to Maruhage Castle for the main tournament, they come out from their underground base and they stay to fight Bo-bobo and the rebels, while Crimson and LOVE go to gather more sacrifices. They plan to sacrifice Bo-bobo and Rem, but Bo-bobo defeats the eldest one immediately (Turning him into a "Pop Star" by yelling in to him and popping him), whom the two younger ones have a short burial for. The tables turn however, when Don Patch opens up the youngest one during the two sacks attack named "Grab Bag of Fun". A giant storm of meteors come out and destroy all nearby villages, and in the confusion, the middle brother knocks Bo-bobo into space using "Plunger Avenger". The afro warrior returns in the form of a giant robot, and unleashes one giant nose-hair, where dozens of teddy bears armed with laser guns shoot the two remaining sacks. After the youngest brother is defeated, the middle brother uses the remained of his power to fuse his power with Yamiken as a last resort.When the smoke clears, an odd, poorly drawn white creature with yellow horns is left standing. Despite its awkward appearance, Bo-bobo stands in awe, claiming that it is more powerful than anything else they have fought. Bo-bobo opens up his afro, and allows his three comrades (Tokoro Tennosuke, Don Patch, and Dengakuman) to fight for who is going to be in the next fusion. Dengakuman is able to force his way through and after putting on his makeup and a sardine, he creates the improved Super Denbo. The "New and Improved" Dendo transports her enemy, along with Don Patch and Tennosuke, in her Storybook World. In this world, Denbo's victims are exposed to puzzles of almost every kind, and for every question they get wrong, they are punished in various ways to include Denbo dolls with nun chucks and double sized Denbo dolls crushing opponents. In the final question, the one who solves the puzzle first will get a prize; Don Patch solves it first, but the fusion steals it and presents it to Denbo. Unfortunately for him, Denbo is the one who gets the prize. The prize is more power, and she uses it to defeat The 3 Sacks final form.
After it is defeated, the fusion returns to the fortress, trying to get some assistance from Byakkyō inside the Yamiking. Instead, the mad surgeon chooses to take him apart instead.
The oldest brother appears in Shinsetsu. He is shown unconscious after the IXEX is done with the entire Reverse Empire.
