|~ Mr. Popo|
Mr. Popo (ミスター・ポポ) is the supporting character of Dragonball. He is an assistant-deity who is apparently an immortal genie who tends the grounds of Kami's Lookout. He is bound there eternally as the gardener and caretaker, but he can travel anywhere in the world when the occasion calls for it, using a magic carpet for instant transportation.
Mr. Popo is Kami's (and later Dende's) assistant and caretaker of his floating palace. He has apparently been around even longer than Kami has. Mr. Popo helps train a young Goku for his fight against Piccolo in the 3rd Tournament arc, and in Z, shows the heroes Kami's old spaceship and teaches Bulma how to use it.
Though he does not appear to physically age, Mr. Popo is very old, having served Kami, the Guardian of Earth, for hundreds of years. He also served Kami's predecessor, as well as the Guardians of Earth into the distant past. Being the loyal and faithful servant that he is, his vocation covers a wide variety of areas, such as tending to Kami's palace and grounds, keeping the Lookout clean, training Earthlings and other creatures to deal with especially dangerous enemies of the planet (such as Piccolo Jr. at the end of Dragon Ball, and Vegeta and Nappa at the beginning of Dragon Ball Z), taking over the Lookout when the Guardian is away, odd and interesting tasks like helping to reconstruct Shenron if needed, and most importantly, supporting, serving, and caring for the current Guardian. He always has a deep emotional bond with the Guardian of the time and will become incredibly depressed or worried if they undergo any harm. He also tends to the ancient butterfly garden that he planted thousands of years ago, and enjoys the more simple things in life. He has a large amount of patience, and doesn't become irritated at people for lashing out easily, and often attempts to calm people down.
Mr. Popo manages to easily defeat Goku, who had drank the Ultra Divine Water and defeated King Piccolo (though he was said to be weaker than Kami). It is stated that after training with Kami, all of the Z Fighters had surpassed him and Mr. Popo. However, during the Buu Saga, Mr. Popo was shown blocking and evading strikes from both Goten and Trunks while they were Super Saiyans, and after he was kicked by Goten he showed no signs of injury or fatigue.
