Mr. Satan (ミスター・サタン) is a character in the manga Dragon Ball, and in the anime series Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT.
His real name is Mark, but his fans call Hercule or Hercule Satan in the English version. He is the father of Videl, and the father in law of Son Goku's oldest son, Son Gohan. He is also the grandfather of Pan.


When Mark was young, he attended a fighting dojo called "Satan Castle." Through a combination of considerable power and good luck (his rival fighting opponent would get food poisoning, for instance), he quickly became world champion and was called "Mr. Satan" after the name of his dojo. One day when they were on tour, at a bar in South City, Satan and his martial arts master made the mistake of making fun of Mercenary Tao's hairstyle. As a result, Mr. Satan was heavily injured while his master was killed. From then on, Mr. Satan solemnly swore never to fight anyone whose true identity he did not know, or anyone who seemed crazy strong.

His daughter Videl was born in Age 756. Videl's mother left Mr. Satan and their daughter Videl at one point, leaving only the two of them in their family.[5] But they have got loads of servants. Mr. Satan is very protective of his daughter, especially in respect to boys, only allowing her to have a boyfriend if he was stronger than him.

In anime-exclusive flashbacks of the previous 24th World Martial Arts Tournament, Mr. Satan is briefly seen fighting Spopovich (back when he was a normal human) in the tournament's first-round match. It is here that one can easily see Mr. Satan's capabilities in comparison to that of other "normal" (human) martial artists (and that Mr. Satan does have some martial ability indeed, enabling him to defeat earthling opponents with less skill and/or power level than him). He easily defeats Spopovich and goes on to fight and defeat Jewel in that tournament's final-match, winning the 24th World Martial Arts Tournament. None of the Z Fighters fought in this tournament, allowing Mr. Satan to win it easily and fairly.


Mr. Satan enjoys eating high class steak, golf, auctions, and riding high class cars (Satan model).[2] He is depicted multiple times (in both the anime and movies) dining on spaghetti with meatballs. He has a car with the numbers "666" on the side; a clear reference to 666 being the number of the devil, connecting back to Mr. Satan's name reference.

During the Dragon Ball Z time period, Mr. Satan is the reigning World Martial Arts Champion, a title won fairly by beating other normal earthlings in a time when Goku and other powerful fighters were battling on Namek and later against the Androids. During the time of the Cell Games, Mr. Satan was already rich and famous, but also an egomaniac. He boasted endlessly on television about his strength, and that he was the "best fighter in the world." In the eyes of characters who know otherwise, he is considered to be a showboating blowhard. When the Z Fighters arrives on the scene starting with the Cell Games, he starts a pattern of claiming them to be his disciples, which, while preserving his status and self-serving ego, has produced good results in the past.

Mr. Satan is quite an unrepentent lech whose head is easily turned by a pretty face, and he despicably uses his fame as "the Hero who defated Cell" to seduce and sleep with multiple women after Videl's mother left, causing a rift between him and his daughter Videl. He is very protective of his daughter Videl however, and would not allow her to hang out at any boy's house unless they are tougher than him (which he might consider).

In spite of showing many signs of greed and cowardice, Mr. Satan is still a fundamentally honorable, decent, sensitive and kind-hearted man. He genuinely cares about protecting the innocent and fighting for justice to the best of his abilities, and is prone to violent and righteous anger when faced with the abuse of helpless innocents by villains. He shows moments of great courage when his family and friends are threatened by evil. Mr. Satan's true colors are foreshadowed when he risks his life to get Android 16's head near Son Gohan, which leads to Gohan's transformation to Super Saiyan 2. In the Majin Buu Saga, Mr. Satan is revealed to be a fundamentally good man as opposed to the arrogant showboat persona he exhibits, and his bravery and kindness towards the good Majin Buu play a major role in Kid Buu's defeat at the end of the Kid Buu Saga.

Prominently, he has saved the lives of Bee, Vegeta, and even Majin Buu (recognizing that Majin Buu was used in his innocence by Babidi, he tearfully begged Vegeta to spare his life as he laid helpless after being beaten by Kid Buu, and was ready to risk death to protect him; Mr. Satan's love for his friend moved Goku enough to join in his defense, allowing the formerly evil monster to start a new life as a hero and benefactor to society). Mr. Satan's skill as an orator came into good use by the series' end. Without the adoration and support of his legions of followers, the Z Fighters would never have been able to raise the Super Spirit Bomb and defeat Kid Buu. By the end of Dragon Ball Z, Goku and his friends come to see the good in Mr. Satan and decide that he is a noble hero.




Mr. Satan can "fly" by utilising a jet-pack.

Dynamite Kick

Mr. Satan used this against Perfect Cell, with no effect outside of video games. Satan Punch – Mr. Satan's signature move, this is just an ordinary punch preceded by Satan shouting "Satan Punch!" when he uses it. He actually used this for the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament on the Punching Machine which was destroyed by Vegeta. This is also known as the Megaton Punch.

King of Dreamers

Mr. Satan runs up at the opponent and throws a barrage of kicks and punches to which the opponent does not react at all. He then lifts them and throws them in the air with a mighty heave and raises his first two fingers. He uses this attack only once against Android 18 before winning the match with the Dynamic Mess Em Up Punch. It is one of Mr. Satan's Blast 2 attacks in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, and his grapple throw in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3.

Dynamic Mess Em Up Punch

The attack he used to defeat Android 18 and win the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament. He punches the opponent many times and finishes with a 'powerful' punch, while saying "You're all washed up!" It is Mr. Satan's meteor attack in Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 (named Meteo Muscle Bomber), his Ultimate Blast in Budokai Tenkaichi 2, and one of his Blast 2 attacks in Budokai Tenkaichi 3.

Present For You

One of Mr. Satan's humorous last resort moves. The moves' alternate name Game Boy Bomb is derived from Satan giving Majin Buu a "Game Poy" (an obvious parody of a Game Boy) and pressing a button to make it explode in the Buu Saga. Also known as Present Bomb. In the Xenoverse series and Dragon Ball Fusions, Mr. Satan uses a present box, instead of a portable video game system rigged to explode.

Hercule Special

Mr. Satan knocks the opponent to the ground, sets up a camera, and then runs over to the unconscious enemy. Then, as his opponent is about to get up, Mr. Satan stomps on him/her, while raising his first two fingers. The picture is taken, with Mr. Satan holding it up in the air to show that he has actually beaten his opponent. Named in the Budokai video game series. In Budokai 1, Hercule Special is the name of a technique where Mr. Satan dodges all of his opponents attacks until a Game Boy Bomb falls and explodes on him, sending him headbutting the opponent.


By far Mr. Satan's greatest strengths his is ability to persuade and delude most people into believing he is an extremely powerful martial artist capable of defeating the likes of Perfect Cell, Bojack (in Bojack Unbound), Majin Buu/Good Buu, and a fictional caricature of Beerus (which is mistaken for the real Beerus by a group of cat-like aliens). In Dragon Ball Online, the false reputation he had built was enough to convince the Guard troops leading the remnants of Frieza Force to believe he was responsible for defeating Frieza, which caused them to avoid attacking Earth until after Mr. Satan passed away in Age 820. His gift for persuasion is enough to convince most people on his word alone, with very little evidence, with even flimsy stories or arguments.

However it generally does not work on those who can sense ki (such as the Z Fighters) and people who knew him in the past like Lord Jaguar or his family like Videl (who was never completely convinced that her father had truly defeated Cell), however he is able to continue to fool most people by rigging tournament fights with fighters such as Android 18, Majin Buu, legitimately defeating normal martial artists like Spopovich (before his potential was unlocked by Babidi's Manipulation Sorcery), and claiming members of his extended family like Goten and Z Fighters like Good Buu are his disciples, as well as the strength possessed both his daughter and granddaughter, and partial Saiyan descendants which are assumed to have been inherited from him.

Though his claims are far from the truth, they ironically have a ring of truth as Mr. Satan's actions ended up helping Gohan to defeat both Perfect Cell & Bojack, as well as befriending Innocent Buu and convincing him to stop killing which lead to the creation of Good Buu who would oppose both Evil Buu and Kid Buu, and was instrumental in convincing the people of Earth to give energy to the Super Spirit Bomb that destroyed Kid Buu.

Miracle Kneel

Hercule's evasive technique where he clutches his stomach and shouts "Aw, My Stomach! It Hurts!" pretending to have a Stomach Ache to avoid fighting while saving face with his public, who simply belief that he has stomach condition which at certain times prevents him from fighting at full strength. Named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse where it is Mr. Satan's evasive skill. It was first seen during the Cell Games.

Appears in Supersonic Warriors 2, as Goku (Base) and Mr. Satan's Team Attack.

45-Calibre Gun

Mr. Satan used his handgun in attempt to stop Super Buu's Finger Beam, and believed he did so when Tien Shinhan obliterated the ball with his Tri-Beam technique without Satan noticing this. He also uses it in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Butōden to cheat in the Satan Mode, and in the Legacy of Goku series to replace the Ki Blasts the other playable characters can use.

Super Mr. Satan

Super Mr. Satan is Mr. Satan's self-described "God" form as deluded by him in his false retelling of the fight between him and Beebus. This form looks suspiciously identical to the Super Saiyan transformation. His hair and his mustache take on a golden color, his afro becomes spiked and stands straight up, his eye color becomes greenish-blue, and a golden pulsing, flame-like aura surrounds him. This form is playable in IC Carddass Dragon Ball.

High Tension

Mr. Satan can use High Tension as a transformation in the Budokai series. Once activated, white aura seeps out through his skin and radiates in a flame-like manner. Mr. Satan's daughter, Videl, has the same type of aura.

Dark Mr. Satan

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, due to a magic spell by Towa, Mr. Satan is taken control of and greatly powered up by Mira. Taking on a form similar to Villainous Mode, his appearance changes slightly and he gains red eyes and a dark aura.

In this form, Mr. Satan is far more powerful than ever before and is even efficient enough in fighting against Super Saiyan Goku and the Future Warrior at the time of the Cell Games, he is also capable of controlling his ki, allowing him to fly and utilize ki blasts.

Villainous Mode

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, in Parallel Quest 34: "Majin Revival"". Mr. Satan revives and takes on this power up form if he is defeated if Majin Buu's health is over 50%. His appearance is basically the same as it was when he was controlled by Mira as he gains red eyes and a dark purple and black aura. Like when he was controlled by Mira, Mr. Satan gains the ability to control his ki to fly and fire ki blasts. He also gains access to the techniques Rage Saucer, Darkness Mixture, and Baked Sphere.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Mr. Satan also uses this power up form in Parallel Quest 54: "Majin Revival" (which is basically the same quest as Majin Revival in Xenoverse though with Vegeta replaced by Majin Vegeta) and it appears when he revives after he is defeat if Majin Buu's health is over 50%.

Additionally it also appears in Parallel Quest 56: "Hercule Is Number One" in which it causes Mr. Satan to attack Gohan, Goten, and Videl forcing the Time Patrol to step in and defeat him to restore him to his senses. If he is defeated in 5 minutes he will revive and must be defeated again to free him of Villainous Mode completely. In Xenoverse 2, in Villainous Mode he gains access to the techniques Bloody Sauce, Spirit Explosion, Rage Saucer, and Baked Sphere.


GokuMr. SatanFusionMX


Gokule is the imaginary fusion of Goku and Mr. Satan formed by the Potara earrings. He only appeared in Goku's imagination and as a playable character in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2. After Goku returns to life and Earth, he finds Gohan to be the only remaining strong fighter to fuse with. But when Goku threw the Potara earring to Gohan, Gohan dropped it, and when he finally found it, he was absorbed by Super Buu. As the only two beings that were still alive are Mr. Satan and Dende, he imaged what the fusion would look like and which of the two would be better.

He chose the former, because Mr. Satan had more fighting experience and might make Goku a little stronger. In addition, fusing with Dende would make the Dragon Balls of Earth disappear. Just at the moment Goku said that Mr. Satan should catch the earring and put it on his left ear, Vegeta appeared and Goku used Instant Transmission to find Vegeta and fuse, forming Vegito. This being the case, Gokule was only a hypothetical character in the anime, and is only seen as Goku's mental image of what the fusion would look like. In the Japanese version of Budokai 2 and onwards, this fusion is referred to as Gotan.


Yamcule is a hypothetical fusion of Mr. Satan and Yamcha. It is a "Fusion Frenzy" card in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game card game, however, the card itself does not depict the fused character, instead showing the two fusing characters beside each other.

Dragon Ball Z (Anime)

Cell Games arc

After hearing Perfect Cell's announcement of the Cell Games, Mr. Satan announces to the world that he will enter the tournament and defeat Cell. A few days before the games begin, Mr. Satan pleases a huge crowd of fans by punching through a bus and ripping a large book in half. Satan was actually rich at this point, so the car he rode in to the Cell Games Arena had a chauffeur. He was apparently selling some kind of "Satan goods", and they were quite profitable.

At ringside, Goku tries several times to warn Mr. Satan against confronting Cell, but the World Champion believes he is more than equal to the task of taking down the deadly bio-android. Throughout the Cell Games, Mr. Satan is convinced that Cell is a mere trickster, having never seen ki attacks before and believing them to be mere light shows. Mr. Satan (and his top students Caroni and Pirozhki as well, in the anime) face Perfect Cell and lose quickly in embarrassing fashion.

The ZTV reporter on-hand to chronicle the Cell Games repeatedly ridicules Goku and the other Z Fighters, firmly believing (along with most of the world) that Mr. Satan is the only one who stands a chance of triumphing over Cell. After showing off his strength by destroying fourteen out of fifteen tiles, Mr. Satan attacks Cell with his Dynamite Kick, but Cell launches him from the ring with a single effortless flick of his hand, at which point Goku steps in and the tournament commences.

Claiming that he simply slipped out of the ring, Mr. Satan (and his pupils) sit out the rest of the Cell Games, watching Goku, and subsequently Gohan, fight Perfect Cell. Mr. Satan is repeatedly questioned by Jimmy Firecracker of the television crew about returning to the ring to face Cell again, but each time the World Martial Arts Champion insists he is suffering from agonizing stomach pains that are preventing him from a rematch.

Although Mr. Satan cowers in fear for much of the time, he does play a pivotal role in Gohan's eventual victory over Cell. After Cell destroys Android 16's body, the severed head of 16 lands near the area where Mr. Satan and the TV crew are hiding. The still functioning head of 16 implores them to carry him over to Gohan. Putting aside his fear (and looking to save face in front of the news crew), Mr. Satan agrees to bring the head of Android 16 to Gohan. This sets into motion the sequence of events ultimately responsible for unleashing Gohan's hidden power.

Near the end of the Cell Game, the television equipment is destroyed and the conclusion, in which Gohan (with help from Vegeta) finally destroys Cell with a Kamehameha Wave, is not broadcast to the global audience. The television crew, having sought shelter from the devastating ki attacks, does not witness Cell's demise.

After the Z Fighters depart, Mr. Satan convinces Jimmy and everyone else that Gohan was beaten and that he defeated Cell single-handedly with a vicious karate chop. Despite some initial skepticism at these claims, the gullible masses are quickly convinced that Mr. Satan indeed defeated Cell and he becomes the world's new hero and hottest celebrity.

Great Saiyaman arc

Seven years after Cell's defeat, Mr. Satan has become increasingly rich and famous. Videl bitterly relates to Gohan that he has become a womanizer who uses his fame as a champion to sleep around with woman after woman. She also confides in Gohan that her father, once an accomplished martial artist, is now living solely off his reputation and no longer keeps up with his training. Satan is shown in several moments, including for a few seconds training his pupils, and cowering away in his home to avoid a gang of thugs, even as they take advantage in a fight against his daughter. Videl initially scoffs at any suggestion that her father is not all that he claims to be though, over time, she comes to see the truth and wishes somebody would beat him at the next World Martial Arts Tournament so that Satan could be taught a lesson in humility and respect.

The World Tournament arc

As reigning World Champion, Mr. Satan is automatically entered into the World Martial Arts Tournament (aka: Strongest Under the Heavens) and is dismayed to see the Super Saiyans (The "Golden Fighters") there, remembering them from the Cell Games. Satan rides out the tournament in fear of being exposed as a fraud, knowing full well that he does not stand a chance against Goku and his friends. After the Junior Division Final in which Trunks defeats Goten, Mr. Satan is set to fight an exhibition match with Trunks. Satan asks Trunks to only lightly tap him on his face, however by even a light tap, Trunks knocks him out of the ring. The audience believes it was all for show and that Mr. Satan let the Junior Champ win (though he was knocked against a wall and brutally injured his nose and is seen grieving over the pain in private shortly afterward).

Majin Buu arc

"If I got this guy to change his ways, then I truly have saved the world."
— Mr. Satan looking at the photo he took, "The Evil of Men"

After the World Martial Arts Tournament was interrupted by Spopovich and Yamu's attacking Gohan, Mr. Satan is set to fight in a Battle Royal against Android 18, Killa, Jewel, and Mighty Mask. Soon, Killa and Jewel are eliminated, and Android 18 reveals Mighty Mask's true identity (Trunks and Goten). Android 18, who does not want the fame of winning, agrees to throw the final if Satan pays her 20,000,000 Zeni (double the prize money).

At one point in an anime-exclusive filler, Mr. Satan was in the shower room shortly after his "win" against Android 18, thinking about what had happened in regards to most of the audience being blown away. However, some Paparazzis burst in and started questioning him about his win against Android 18, and he claims to "not hide anything from the fans", and while laughing, accidentally drops his towel in front of everyone, causing the Paparazzis to take pictures of the exposure. Another point in another anime-exclusive filler, he foolishly tries to fly, only to land on and hurt his weak point: his nose (and later tries to cover up his behavior to a bunch of fangirls walking in on him). Later, when Vegeta (now a Majin) attacks the crowd in order for Goku to fight him, Mr. Satan taunts Vegeta, but becomes terrified when Vegeta tells him to keep quiet. After this, Babidi teleports Vegeta, Goku and the others to the desert.

After Majin Buu kills Babidi and starts terrorizing the Earth, Mr. Satan is sent to his house to kill the monster. Mr. Satan tried to do so by giving Buu deadly presents such as cyanide-filled chocolates and an explosive video game, but Majin Buu likes them, and makes Satan his playfriend. The cunning Satan then tricks Majin Buu into posing for a photo, having him lie on his belly while Satan strikes a pose, and then becomes Majin Buu's servant. While Mr. Satan plans to use a super explosive to try and kill Majin Buu, Majin Buu returns early from a killing spree with a hurt puppy, showing signs of good in him. Mr. Satan brings this good to the surface by helping Majin Buu heal the puppy and convincing him kindly that killing is wrong. Mr. Satan and Majin Buu then form a true friendship, and name the puppy Bee.

Their happiness is short lived when Bee is shot (by a bullet) and Buu along with Mr. Satan, are attacked by two evil humans, the killer thug Van Zant and his cohort Smitty (both unnamed in the original Japanese, in which Smitty refers to Van Zant as "Young Master"), with rocket launchers. Mr. Satan bravely stands against them, hitting Smitty with a rock and confronting the ringleader (Van Zant) who is reaching for his weapon. Mr. Satan fearlessly dares the thug to try it (stating "Go ahead, pick it up!").

The thug then grabs his weapon, but is immediately assaulted by Mr. Satan (who shouts, "Now It's Your Turn!"), kicking the weapon out of the thug's hands and delivers a furious beating on him for cold-bloodedly shooting Bee (and attempting to kill both him and Buu). He ends the assault with a final kick, sending the punk tumbling off the cliff (Van Zant survives, however), defeating him. After this, a triumphant Mr. Satan calls Van Zant a "Heartless Monster!", and finally proves himself to be a true "hero" (it should be noted that this is one of the few fights where Mr. Satan "completely" dominates his opponent; it also shows that given the right motivation, Mr. Satan is capable of defeating even "armed" opponents when angered).

Majin Buu then heals Bee's wound (saving its life) and all is well (for the moment). Later while Mr. Satan is preparing dinner, he is confronted by Van Zant who holds him at gun point and he prepares to kill "The World's Hero". Mr. Satan tries to use high-speed movement to evade & attack him, but is shot in cold blood, leading to the emergence of the greater evil within Majin Buu.

After Mr. Satan is shot by Van Zant, Majin Buu is torn between the promise he made and the anger he holds. He manages to heal Mr. Satan and the dog, but loses control and tells Mr. Satan to flee before it is too late. He then involuntarily spits out the bulk of his power in the form of an evil, sickly antithesis of himself, which kills Van Zant mercilessly by blasting him, along with a cluster of mountains. After being pummeled badly by the Evil Buu, the good but weaker form, in an act of desperation, attempts to turn the Evil Buu into an edible form using his Antenna Beam. However, Evil Buu reverses the attack by blowing the beam away, emerging as the victor before devouring the good Majin Buu and transforming into Super Buu. Super Buu then brutally kills Smitty (going into his mouth and causing him to expand until he violently explodes), while Mr. Satan and Bee are forced to watch in horror.

During the battle against Super Buu, Mr. Satan is angered to the point that he screams "I hereby terminate our friendship, Majin Buu!" and gets out a 45-Caliber gun. In one hilarious moment, when Super Buu fires a Finger Beam to kill Dende, Mr. Satan shoots at it and it explodes, when in reality Tien intervened and countered it with his Tri-Beam technique. When Super Buu prepares another one (and a much more powerful one, one which Tien had no method of nullifying), Mr. Satan once again starts shooting at Super Buu, and Super Buu is sliced in half, when in reality Goku returned and fired a Destructo Disk at him.

Mr. Satan, along with Dende and Bee, then sits out the rest of the battle and sees Vegito pound Super Buu around. When Super Buu absorbs Vegito, Mr. Satan and Dende tail him around the city as he eats countless cakes and sweets. Ultimately, when Super Buu reverts to Kid Buu, Satan decides to attempt to fight him, but Dende advises him otherwise. Ultimately, when Kid Buu finally succeeds in destroying the Earth, Mr. Satan, Dende and Bee are rescued by Goku, Vegeta and Kibito Kai at the last minute via Kibito Kai's Instantaneous Movement to the Sacred World of the Kais. At first, Satan believes it all to be a dream, but changes his mind when he is unable to fly, and also when Kid Buu shows up and resumes the battle against Goku and Vegeta.

Kid Buu & Uub arc

During the battle, Mr. Satan becomes angered to the point that he challenges Kid Buu to a futile duel (causing a recovering Goku to say, "Please, not him! What did I ever do to deserve this?!"). Mr. Satan punches and kicks Kid Buu rapidly, but these futile efforts do not even faze the Majin. Just when Kid Buu is about to kill Mr. Satan, he hesitates, and starts to scream loudly, holding his head in agony, and then spits out a blue stone that explodes into an unconscious Majin Buu, who turned out to be what was stopping Kid Buu from harming Mr. Satan. Believing Majin Buu to have sacrificed himself to save him one last time, Mr. Satan, with tears dripping from his eyes, challenges Kid Buu with all his might. Just as Kid Buu is about to finish him, Majin Buu intervenes and fights Kid Buu alone while Mr. Satan cheers him on.

Mr. Satan also participates in convincing the people of the newly restored Earth to give their energy to Goku's Super Spirit Bomb, since they refused to listen to Vegeta and Goku (except for Goku and Vegeta's friends and family, of course). He becomes genuinely angry that the people of Earth were refusing to believe and help the one chance they had that would save them from Kid Buu once and for all. The people end up believing they were giving their energies to him when instead, it supplies to the Spirit Bomb making it a lot bigger than before, but Kid Buu cunningly stands beside Vegeta's battered body.

When Goku hesitates to throw the Spirit Bomb at Kid Buu, Majin Buu holds Kid Buu down while Mr. Satan carries Vegeta's limp body aside. The Spirit Bomb destroys Kid Buu after Goku goes Super Saiyan, and Majin Buu and Satan make it back to Earth with Goku, Vegeta, Dende and the Kais, now accepted as two new Z Warriors, and has Majin Buu live with him, now named Mister Buu.

Mr. Satan is seen once again after a few days, having been invited to a great party at Capsule Corporation, where he drinks and plays cards with Yamcha and Master Roshi. After spending time on the sidelines watching with Dende, he also seems to have formed a friendship with him, asking about Dende's job as Guardian of Earth. He also seems to forget his earlier ambitions and attempts to learn how to fly, which means he never masters it.

Ten years later, Mr. Satan is still the World Martial Arts Champion, due to he and Mr. Buu cheating the public by having Mr. Buu defeat the participants and then lose to Mr. Satan on purpose in the finals, although he promises Buu that one day he will let him win. At the start of the next one, Mr. Satan is greeted by Goku, Goten, Trunks, Vegeta, and Pan (Gohan and Videl's daughter). Mr. Satan is only seen hugging his granddaughter, wanting to spoil her sick, and worrying himself sick when he sees Pan go up against a hulking fighter called Wild Tiger. Mr. Satan briefly panics when he learns that Goku, Vegeta and their children will participate, but Goku promises him that whoever makes it to the final will lose to him on purpose to maintain his image (and avoid media pressure).

When Goku departs with a boy named Uub, Mr. Satan and Mr. Buu watch their friend leave.

Dragon Ball Super (Anime)

Battle of Gods arc

Mr. Satan is seen in a press meeting at Satan House, where he declares to be the universe's savior. Majin Buu enters the meeting proclaiming he was hungry and gets furious with Mr. Satan. Mr. Satan tells the press that Majin Buu is a space soldier and is his first pupil. With the press believing this, Mr. Satan leaves to give Majin Buu a massage.

Mr. Satan later goes to see Vegeta to offer him his reward for saving the world from Majin Buu but Vegeta declines the prize money because he already has enough. He then finds Goku, and offers to give him 100 million zeni for defeating Majin Buu. First Goku declines the money then takes it because Goten tells Goku if he gave Chi-Chi the money he could train with King Kai. In return for Goku taking the money, Mr. Satan doesn't want anyone knowing about offer. On August 18, Mr. Satan attends Bulma's birthday party of the cruise ship. He prevents Buu from eating all of the food before the party started.

Mr. Satan attends Bulma's birthday party. While he's there, he usually keeps Buu fed so he doesn't get angry. Mr. Satan is eating pudding with Majin Buu when Beerus arrived. Mr. Satan tried to get Buu to give Beerus and Whis pudding but he was blow away by Beerus and Buu for getting in the way. Moments later, Videl and Gohan help Mr. Satan recover. A while later, Oolong and faced off against Beerus in a rock-paper-scissors match and lost. Beerus is ready to destroy the Earth after winning against Oolong. Mr. Satan is in fear until Goku arrives and asks for more time.

Goku uses the Dragon Balls to ask Shenron how to unlock Super Saiyan God. After completing the ritual for Super Saiyan God, Goku and Beerus start their. As Goku and Beerus got higher into the sky and into space, most the of antendees of Bulma's birthday party went with Bulma and into her spaceship but Mr. Satan remained on the ship. Mr. Satan is contacted by Jimmy Firecracker from ZTV to ask him to help from the rifts Goku and Beerus are causing throughout the universe. Mr. Satan says that he is at a secret birthday party to capture criminals as a cover up. He immediately hangs up and calls Gohan and tells him that he needs to save Videl, but he is falling from the sky in Bulma's spaceship due to Goku and Beerus. The spaceship is above Mr. Satan as it is falling and Mr. Satan is saved by Whis. Mr. Satan starts to watch the battle between Goku and Beerus from Whis's scepter.

Mr. Satan gets concerned of the fight between Goku and Beerus because of Videl's safety of being pregnant. He asks Whis to stop the battle but Whis stresses that he can't because of the power that was being exerted. Mr. Satan tries to bribe him by giving him a free pass of eating food throughout the city but he turns it down. Because of a shining from the sky (due to a blast collision in space), Mr. Satan decides to protect Videl by having himself open in front of her.

After their blasts' collision, Mr. Satan thinks his love is what helped saved the Earth. Moments later, Mr. Satan gets a call from Piiza. She tells him that they were overloaded with calls for him. He tells her to get him a press conference ready in a dome for saving the Earth. Goku is defeated and Beerus is on Earth getting ready to destroy it. Mr. Satan gets another call from Piiza. She tells him that the reporters couldn't wait for a press conference and went to his location. Beerus falls asleep in his attempt to destroy the Earth and is taken home by Whis.

Resurrection F arc

After the battle with Beerus, Mr. Satan is believed by many humans to have defeated him. He appears at a press conference and is interviewed. They ask him who it was that attacked the Earth, and he says it was a God of Destruction. Mr. Satan does not correctly remember Beerus' name, so he tells the reporters that the God of Destruction was named "Beebus". He also says that he defeated Beebus in Super Saiyan (Satan thinks its the Super Saiyan God form). During the conference, a spaceship lands. Cat-like humanoids emerge from the spacecraft and say that they are ambassadors of the Snakian people. They believe that Mr. Satan has defeated Beerus, and so, they want to thank him.

A Snakian warrior called Galbi comes out of the spaceship and tells the ambassadors that they should test Mr. Satan's power to see if he really was the one who defeated Beerus. The ambassadors decide that they will prepare an arena so that Galbi and Mr. Satan can fight. Mr. Satan is scared by Galbi's appearance, and knows he cannot win against him, so he fakes a stomach problem and hides in the bathroom.

He desperately tries to call Gohan to fight for him in his place, but he ignores his cell phone, and is busy cooking for Videl. He also tries to call Vegeta, but he is also not available, and is training in a wasteland. Eventually, he goes to the arena, reluctantly, and agrees to fight Galbi. Goku flew into Satan City, and saw the match happening. He wished Mr. Satan luck, but he did not fight Galbi, like Mr. Satan wanted him to. He soon flew away, dragging a tractor he was carrying along with him. Galbi and Mr. Satan fight, with Mr. Satan running for most of the match and doing nothing but dodging. He is hesitant and decides he must charge Galbi, so he punches him, and his punch does nothing. Just when Galbi is about to punch him, he sees Bee, and is terrified. Galbi runs back into the spaceship, and the other Snakians, who are also afraid of dogs, follow. The Snakians then leave Earth.

Six months later, Pan is born and Mr. Satan can be seen making funny faces as Pan, making her laugh, and then he plays with her and Gohan, dressed as the Great Saiyaman, and tossed Pan around while doing so, until Chi-Chi interrupted and began yelling at them. Mr. Satan along with Gohan, wanted Pan to be a martial artist with tons of successors but she did not want another warrior in the family and she threw him and Gohan out for not trusting them with Pan and Mr. Satan begs Goku and Krillin to convince Chi-Chi to change her mind and eventually Bulma and Videl do it and Gohan and Mr. Satan are allowed back in the house again.

While Goku and his friends were fighting Frieza, Mr. Satan and Buu were taking a nap in their mansion when they were unaware of the Earth exploding due to Frieza blowing it up. Both of them were killed until Whis undid the event with his Temporal Do-Over technique so that Goku can kill Frieza once more. Mr Satan later attends the feast thrown by Bulma with his family and friends

Future Trunks arc

He appears when Gohan introduces Future Trunks to him and Videl. Future Trunks knows who Mr. Satan is due to his appearance in the Cell Games, but Mr. Satan interrupts him, saying he must be famous in the future. After Pan playfully sprays milk on Future Trunks, Mr. Satan and Gohan also get spray by her. As Gohan tries to get Pan to stop flying inside the house, Videl invite Future Trunks to stay for dinner. Videl is then seen cooking in the kitchen, while Mr. Satan shows Future Trunks recordings of his victory rallies. However he tells Trunks to watch Pan as Videl calls her father to help her. After dinner, he waves goodbye to Future Trunks. Later on, Mr. Satan appears in a starring role in the movie Great Saiyaman vs Mr. Satan.

Universe Survival arc

Mr. Satan accompanies Goku and Gohan to the Zen Exhibition Match because they want Majin Buu to participate and only Mr. Satan can keep him under control. He cheers for Majin Buu during his fight although he disapproves of Majin Buu for playing during the fight. When Mr. Satan is injured, Majin Buu is enraged enough to start fighting seriously and wins. Mr. Satan cheers for Gohan and Goku's respective matches and learns that Universe 7 will be erased if they lose in the Tournament of Power, worrying him. They return to Capsule Corp to come up with a strategy, just in time for Bulla to be born. Mr. Satan holds the baby and makes a funny face, but this makes Bulla cry and Vegeta angry enough to transform into Super Saiyan Blue. Later he informed Bulma that Buu is under sleep and won't wake up for 3 months.

Dragon Ball GT (Anime)

Baby arc

During the war against Baby, Mr. Satan goes along with Majin Buu, Uub and Pan to New Planet Plant (New Planet Tuffle) to put up a stand against Baby Vegeta until Goku arrives again. After Trunks, Goten and Gohan are freed from Baby's control, Mr. Satan helps out to the best of his abilities to fight against Baby Vegeta with all the free Z Warriors, and at one point when thinking Baby had killed Pan, he stood up to Baby in anger and prepared to fight him personally, until he found out Goku had rescued her. However they have a rough battle until Uub who had tricked Baby Vegeta (now controlling a Golden Great Ape Baby Vegeta) into eating him earlier inflated his stomach, causing him great pain and reducing his strength. He is present when Goku finally forces Baby out of Vegeta and then blasts him into the sun as he tries to escape on a spaceship.

Since Baby used the Black Star Dragon Balls to create the new Planet Plant, the Earth was now in danger once again of exploding from using them. Goku and company knew they would need to evacuate everyone from Earth to the new Planet Tuffle for safety, but they also knew most of the people of Earth would not believe them if Goku or his friends told them the situation, but he knew they would believe Mr. Satan, since they still believe he defeated Cell quite a few years ago. They had Mr. Satan announce to everyone on Earth that the planet was going to explode, and that they would need to go with his officials for proper transportation. Everyone listened to him (except a few skeptics, who Vegeta simply knocked out and threw in with the luggage) and went to Planet Tuffle for safety via Goku's or Kibito Kai's instant transmission, or King Furry's ship transportation before the Earth exploded.

Super 17 arc

When the dead are brought back from Hell in Age 790, Mr. Satan is shown running away from members of the Red Ribbon Army who are defeated by Pan.

Shadow Dragons arc

Mr. Satan is later seen watching the final battle against Omega Shenron. Mr. Satan dies in Age 820, the King of Earth honors him with a national funeral. In Age 889, there is a statue of Mr. Satan at the 64th World Martial Arts Tournament.

Film Appearances

Dragon Ball Z movie 9

The movie starts with a big martial arts tournament in which 200 elite fighters will compete, including Yamcha, Tien, Piccolo, Gohan, Future Trunks, and Krillin. The winner will get to face the famous champion "Mr. Hercule" (also known as "Mr. Satan" in the Japanese version). Goku is shown in Other World, watching the tournament with King Kai. The first round consists of 8 contests - 25 fighters are put on each fighting "stage", and the last one standing on each stage will advance to the semi-finals. Tien, Piccolo, Gohan, Krillin, and Future Trunks are among the 8 who advance. As the advancing fighters' names are announced, Mr. Hercule is shown getting increasingly nervous, as he is aware of the prowess of these fighters. He begins looking for a way to back out of the fighting, eventually claiming to have a "stomach ache". In the meantime, the semis pit Tien against Future Trunks and Krillin against Piccolo. Future Trunks beats Tien. Piccolo is disgusted by the lack of a challenge in this supposedly "elite" contest and forfeits against Krillin. Gohan, Krillin, and Future Trunks are among the 4 who advance to the finals, in which each of them will compete against a fighter from elsewhere in the galaxy. However, as the alien fighters are revealed, the fight promoter realizes that these are not the fighters that he had recruited for the contest.

Everyone soon begins to realize that there is something wrong as Trunks is challenged by Kogu, Krillin faces Zangya, and Gohan confronts Bujin. During this time, Mr. Hercule is in the rest room, thinking about how he got himself in this mess, but after looking at his belt he realizes that the people need him and, in an uncharacteristically brave mood he goes out and gets slammed into a space pod and sent to the fighting. During his fight against Kogu, Trunks transforms into a Super Saiyan, shatters Kogu's sword, and shoves his fist right through Kogu's abdomen, killing him. As he turns to leave, he is struck down in one blow by an unknown foe. Far away, Vegeta feels this power and knows something is wrong. Gohan continues his fight with Bujin until he is led out to where Krillin and Trunks are. After inspecting his fallen friend, Bojack introduces himself and tells Gohan his plans to rule the universe as his revenge.

Yamcha and Tien turn up to fight but are defeated by Bujin, Bido and Zangya. Seeing his friends fallen, Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan and fights Bojack's henchmen while Bojack watches on in amusement. Gohan is beaten down and Bojack powers up an attack to finish him off, although it is deflected by Piccolo, who has come to Gohan's aid. Trunks comes back into action and they both challenge Bojack. After a period of fighting Trunks's sword appears; Trunks catches it as Vegeta enters the fight and transforms into a Super Saiyan, quickly setting on Bojack. During this, Trunks thinks that Vegeta would only ever fight when it meant him surpassing Goku's strength, and Trunks realizes that Vegeta has truly changed. While Vegeta fights Bojack, the rest fight against his surviving henchmen.

During his fight against Vegeta, Bojack beats Vegeta down and transforms. Gohan rushes to Piccolo's aid, but Piccolo tells him to not worry about him and fight Bojack. Bojack challenges Gohan to a fight and beats him thanks to the aid of Bido and Zangya's Untrapped ropes, which drains Gohan's energy away, but Gohan is freed when Mr. Hercule's incoming pod distracts them all. Annoyed at this, Bojack powers up an attack and blasts Mr. Hercule's pod, causing him to fall to the ground. Trying to save him, Gohan is struck down by Bojack's henchmen.

On Snake Way with King Kai, Goku can't watch any more and, using his Instant Transmission, teleports himself to the fight and punches Bojack before he can finish Gohan off. Surprised, Bojack falls to the ground. After a few words of advice, Goku places his son on the ground safely and disappears. Gohan, taking in his father's words, gets back and turns to Bojack with fire in his eyes. Gohan transforms into Super Saiyan 2, surprising Bojack and his crew. Gohan beats Bido and Bujin each in one hit, breaking them both in half, and Zangya is killed when Bojack uses her as a shield from Gohan. The angry young Saiyan then slams his fist into Bojack's stomach, blowing a hole in his stomach and out through his back. As a last resort, Bojack powers up his Galactic Buster and Gohan prepares a Kamehameha.

The energies clash together and in the blinding light Bojack is killed. Gohan, exhausted, falls backwards laughing as Goku praises him from Other World, and King Kai jokes that Goku broke the rules of going back to Earth while dead. After the events, everyone is in hospital watching the news that Mr. Hercule is a "true hero" who defeated the alien intruders; this results in several jokes as they laugh. As in Super Android 13!, the film closes with Piccolo and Vegeta on the roof, arms folded and backs turned to each other, isolating themselves from the celebration.

Dragon Ball Z movie 11

In a dark laboratory on a distant island, strangely-coloured humanoids emerge from tanks, having been created by Dr. Collie. Collie's employer, Mr. Jaguar, plans to use these men to expose the "world's greatest fraud", and laughs madly as a furry tail is shown in a distant tank.

At Mr. Satan's house, Android 18 is wrecking Mr. Satan's room since he has yet to pay her for throwing the World Tournament Final, with Krillin, Trunks, Goten and Marron waiting outside. Just then, Mr. Jaguar's cousin, Men-Men, arrives and speaks with Mr. Satan, telling him that Mr. Jaguar, who was Mr. Satan's fighting rival at summer camp, has requested his presence at his island laboratory to have him fight his special fighters, and threatens to expose Mr. Satan wetting his bed at summer camp if he refuses. Mr. Satan grudgingly accepts, with Android 18 accompanying them to make sure Mr. Satan keeps good on his promise. Trunks and Goten stow away, hoping for a challenge.

At the lab, Mr. Satan and Jaguar come face to face after many years. The semi-tournament is organised, with Android 18, Goten and Trunks asking to take part, posing as Mr. Satan's pupils. Though Trunks and Goten make quick work of the bio-warriors, they notice an old enemy of theirs beside Jaguar: the farcical shaman from Natade Village who they encountered in Broly – Second Coming. While exploring, Trunks and Goten stumble across a tank inside which appears to be Broly, the legendary Super Saiyan they defeated, apparently having survived again. They confront the shaman, who tells them that after Broly was destroyed, he found a sample of Broly's blood and took it to Jaguar, who used it to create a clone of Broly as one of his bio-warriors. Knowing of Broly's mental instability, Trunks and Goten try to destroy him before he awakens, but Broly notices Goten and his rage erupts, allowing him to break out of the tank. At the same time, this causes a major leak of a dangerous culture fluid which instantly devours any matter with a different structure to its own and multiplies. Broly is drenched in the culture fluid and deformed horribly ("Bio-Broly"). Jaguar orders Broly to kill Mr. Satan, and Android 18 comes to his defence (in exchange for more money), but is easily pounded by Broly. Goten and Trunks take on Broly and are only barely able to keep up with him, but the culture fluid begins to consume the entire island, destroying the bio-warriors and killing the shaman and many scientists.

Broly soon takes the upper hand and pummels Goten and Trunks. Krillin arrives in time to save Android 18, but they too are defeated. Trunks, however, lures Broly beneath a culture fluid tank and blasts it, showering Broly in the culture fluid and disintegrating him. With Broly gone, Trunks, Goten, Krillin and Android 18 evacuate the island, but Dr. Collie tells them that the culture fluid, after absorbing Broly, will continue to spread until it covers the entire Earth. However, after seeing Mr. Satan trying to swim away from the fluid, they notice that the fluid turns to stone upon contact with seawater. Goten, Trunks and Krillin each fire a Kamehameha wave at the base of the island, causing a massive wave of water to flood the island and turn the culture fluid to stone. Just then, Broly suddenly emerges from the sea as a giant, but before he can attack, he too is solidified. Trunks and Goten blast him to smithereens, destroying him once and for all. Mr. Satan then emerges from the sea, asking for help. Android 18 offers, but in exchange for 100 million zeni for all the help she gave him throughout the movie. Fuming, Mr. Satan swims off.

Dragon Ball Z movie 12

When the dead are resurrected, Mr. Satan is only seen for a few seconds, beating up walking skeletons and zombies (this is perhaps the only fight against a threatening force to the Earth where Mr. Satan actually succeeds at winning, he even says "Finally an adversary I can really beat! I need to do this where someone can see me!").

Dragon Ball Z movie 14

Several years after the titanic battle with Majin Buu, Goku has come to King Kai's planet to train and he is running with Bubbles when he notices King Kai is discussing something interesting. He then learns about Beerus, a God of Destruction tasked with maintaining balance in the universe. Goku says that he wants to fight Beerus, and King Kai scolds him. Soon, Beerus arrives on the planet and Goku is questioned about the Super Saiyan God. Goku demonstrates the various Super Saiyan forms he can achieve to Beerus, but he cannot help Beerus about the Super Saiyan God. However, ecstatic over the new challenge, Goku ignores King Kai's advice and battles Beerus, but he is overwhelmed and defeated. Beerus then leaves, but his eerie remark of "Is there nobody on Earth more worthy to destroy…?" lingers on.

The form gives Goku the power to resist Beerus, but he reverts to his regular Super Saiyan form due to the form's time limit. However, he learns the form's godlike feeling, which allows him to use Super Saiyan God power. Beerus points out to Goku that Super Saiyan God's time limit ran out some time ago and that Goku did not notice because he was able to absorb Super Saiyan God power into his body while he was fighting. Beerus says that because of this, Goku did not greatly power down even after returning to normal. Goku did not quite like Super Saiyan God because he could only reach that level of power with everyone else's help rather than on his own, so Goku feels contented becoming able to fight at a level not too far removed from Super Saiyan God all on his own. The two seem to be equally strong at some point, but Beerus eventually wins when he uses his God of Destruction Super Energy Sphere. Goku stops Beerus' energy sphere, barely holding it back, and the screen suddenly blacks out. Chi-Chi and Goku's friends appear in Goku's mind, then he briefly transforms to Super Saiyan God again and absorbs the energy ball. Goku gets exhausted, and Beerus wants Goku to say "I give up" and he says so. Beerus stops the fight and they talk for a while before going back to the ground.

Beerus says that the Super Saiyan God was not that strong and the Oracle Fish's prediction was a little exaggerated. Beerus reveals that Whis is his martial arts master and stronger than him. He also says that there are twelve universes, and the one Goku and his friends know is just one of them, the Seventh Universe. Beerus is the God of Destruction of the Seventh Universe, and each universe has its God of Destruction. On the ground, Beerus tries to destroy the planet, but he blasts only a small rock and says he has already run out of power. Before returning home, Whis asks Goku if he would like to be the next God of Destruction after Beerus dies, but Goku turns him down. The Supreme Kais comment on Goku befriending the God of Destruction. When Goku reveals that he was on Earth watching the battles, he says that Vegeta became an incredible Super Saiyan back when Beerus slapped Bulma and even jokes that they should just have their enemy hit Bulma the next time they are up against some nasty opponent. Goku needles Vegeta about shouting "How dare you do that to my Bulmaaa!!!" when defending her against Beerus, and Vegeta denies that he said such a thing. Piccolo then says that Goku must have been watching back during that fight, and everyone gets mad at Goku for not helping out then. Goku is last seen being chased by Bulma.

Yo Son Goku & his friends return!!!

In this special, Goku becomes a radish farmer (the name pun of his brother, Raditz). Goku and his family are invited by Mr. Satan to come to the opening of his hotel. At first, Goku is reluctant to go, but when he hears he may eat as much as he wants, he goes. When he gets to the hotel, he first has a little food competition with Vegeta, later when they are eating they feel the ki of two beings heading for earth, as a result Goku and the others go and check it out. They appear to be Gure and Tarble, the little brother of Vegeta, Tarble tells them two strong enemies and former servant's of Frieza are coming to Earth. Goku wants to fight them, but then the other fighters show that they want to fight too.

They then begin to argue until they agree to pick radishes; a game that declares the one with the longest radish as the winner, this is Trunks. When they go back to the hotel, Abo and Cado arrive. Goku tells Goten that he may help Trunks with his fight. Goten and Trunks defeat Abo and Cado, so Abo and Cado merge into Aka. Because of this, Goten and Trunks decide to fuse into Gotenks to even the match. After a short fight, Aka starts to overpower Gotenks with strong attacks. When Gotenks can not handle it anymore, Goku and Vegeta intervene after Aka launches a massive energy attack. Goku plays a "dirty trick" on Vegeta, so he can fight alone and then goes Super Saiyan to do a Kamehameha on the energy attack Aka launched. The Kamehameha dissipates Aka's energy blast. After that, Goku punches Aka in the gut, thus making Aka split up. Afterward, they resume the banquet they were having before the arrival of Gure and Tarble. This time with the addition of Abo and Cado eating Goku's radish. As they eat, Goku and Vegeta begin to argue and turn Super Saiyan. It ends with everyone happily watching the argument except for Chi-Chi and Bulma.

Mr. Satan's Statue at the 64 Budokai Tenkaichi Tournament.

  • Mr. Satan shares the same voice actor as King Yemma in the Japanese version, and English version of the franchise.
  • Mr. Satan and his family member, Son Goku, are the only two characters that have a statue to honor them as legendary fighters in the world martial arts Tournament. Since both of them have won the world martial arts tournament in a different year. (For Goku : the 23 tournament. Whereas for Mr. Satan : the 24 tournament).
  • Mr. Satan can be seen as the Joker in one of Oolong's card games.
  • Mr. Satan has won the World Martial Arts Tournament at least eight times, even though in seven of the tournaments, his opponent let him win.
  • Ironically, Mr. Satan gets himself into far more dangerous situations than anyone in the series yet he always come out alive unlike most of the other characters, despite being one of the weakest of the Z Fighters, if not the weakest. Typically, it is his bond with the fat Majin Buu that allows for him to come through, against both the Super and original forms of Buu. However, it is to be noted that despite the Buu in question having merged with the same Uub (or Majuub) who was out of the count at the time, he manages to survive a kick from Omega Shenron, which even the strongest of the human Z Fighters should logically be unable to do. This occurs in a similar fashion to Kid Buu's punch to Satan's nose merely doing enough harm for him to shout in pain. This is probably just for comedic purposes.
  • In the fight between Vegito and Super Buu, Mr. Satan is able to see the fighters while they move and fight, while unable to sense energy, however Gohan, during the Saibaman struggle, could not see the fights until he concentrated on their energy, and not using his eyes. This is another plot hole of the series.
  • According to Dragon Ball Forever, he was voted number 11 by Japanese fans in the poll for best characters. He managed to score higher than even series regulars like Master Roshi, Yamcha, Bulma, and Yajirobe.
  • In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, there are items called Hercule Badges which are collectible coin-shaped medallions featuring Mr. Satan's face on them that are said to be quite popular on Earth. They come in 5 levels of rarity (Common, Uncommon, Rare, Super Rare, & Legendary) and can be sold in exchange of Zeni with the amount based their rarity. According to Jaco, the Hercule Badges are made of rare metals and has the Future Warrior collect them during their training under him as he needs the metal to repair his ship.
  • In Xenoverse, Mr. Satan often gives Hercule Badges as random gifts to the Future Warrior when they train under him which fit his tendency for shameless self-promotion.
  • In Xenoverse 2, Mr. Satan appears as an NPC during the Parallel Quest: "Fist of Justice!" in the Industrial Sector of West City. If spoken to he will offer a official Mr. Satan energy drink which restores health if his offer is accepted. Afterwards Mr. Satan will use his Miracle Kneel excuse to talk his way out of fighting together with the Saiya Squad and Time Patrol.

According to the Databooks:

  • Mr. Satan's hobbies are golf and auctions.
  • Mr. Satan's favorite food is high-class steak.
  • Mr. Satan's favorite vehicle is high-class cars (Satan model).

Voice Actors

  • Japanese : the late Daisuke Gori (1993 – 2010), Unsho Ishizuka (2010 – Present)
