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 Maruhage Castle.
A round bizarre-looking creature, who 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 man. Eventually, when he is defeated, he asks to join Bo-bobo's team, to which Bo-bobo responds by strapping him to a rocket and launching him into space.
