    "Everyone here is above you, and I'm not talking about height. You won't be able to land a single hit in this whole tournament."
    — Nappa mocking Freeza, in "A good night's sleep"

    Nappa from Universe 13 is an elite Saiyan warrior from Planet Vegeta, and was the general of the Saiyan army that worked under Freeza. Nappa was also one of the few remaining Saiyans alive after the genocide. The four Saiyans at one point overthrew Freeza of his title as Emperor of the universe and has caused destruction among their universe since then.


    First Round

    Nappa participates in the very first round of the tournament against a Namekian named Cargo, from Universe 10. The two at first seem fairly even, as Nappa tells Cargo that he had slaughtered the entire Namekian race in his universe. Cargo is unphased by the comment, but Nappa soon gains the upper-hand and easily defeats Cargo without a scratch. It is during this battle that Gohan from Universe 18 notes that Nappa is much stronger than the one from his universe.

    Later Appearances

    Following Gokū's victory over Mahissu, Universe 13 Vegeta decides to introduce himself and his companions to Universe 18. Following Kakarotto's introduction and a display of arrogance from Universe 13 Vegeta, Universe 18 Vegeta shakes them and also states the humor in the fact that he killed Nappa in his universe, leaving Nappa in a state of shock.

    A Good Night of Sleep

    Gohan from Universe 18 goes and visits the Universe 13 room. As he does, he takes a glance at each Saiyan and thinks back at how their acts affected his childhood. Gohan rememberr Nappa killing all his family and friends in the past.

    Second Round

    His next fight is with Freeza from Universe 8. Despite Nappa being many times stronger than his Universe 18 counterpart, both Kakarotto and Vegeta consider him completely outclassed by Freeza. Before the match, Nappa constantly taunts Freeza, angering him greatly. But as the match begins, Nappa instantly forfeits. He then reveals that he and Raditz, knowing that Nappa had no chance anyway, thought it would be funny to anger Freeza but then have Nappa forfeit so that Freeza could not lay a hand on him without getting disqualified. Out of rage, Freeza executs his solider Burter, leaving Jeice shocked. Later after witnessing Prince Vegeta's defeat, he and Raditz are mocked by Kakarotto, who gloats about being the only participant of their universe left in the tournament. 


    Great Ape

    While never seen, Nappa has the ability to transform into a Great Ape.


    Nappa was subsequently possessed by Babidi, along with Kakarotto.


    • Nappa wears a slightly altered piece of armor from the one he used on Earth. Salagir has noted that this is due to Dragon Ball Multiverse taking place dozens of decades later. (P38 comments)
    • Nappa stated surprised in the novel, after Vegeta U18 said that he killed his Nappa on Earth, that he and his Vegeta never went to Earth in their universe.
    • Forfeiting to Freeza so easily seems a bit out of character for Nappa, but he had done so due to a plan that Raditz came up with.
