Anime- Dragon Ball
He is one of the members of the Ginyu force, and he is also the second in command of Ginyu. His captain Ginyu usually describes him as flamboyant.
He also has the nickname red magma, and he often pairs with Burter to perform combination attacks called the Purple Comet Attack. Just like Zarbon, he is also of Australian origin as he comes from the space Australia of the Dragon Ball universe.
On that note, we are concluding our list of Top 10 Best Australian Anime Characters. Even though we have found some characters who are based on Australians or are of Australian origin, it is still not enough. Japan normally does not portray foreign characters often in its anime, and when they do, it is primarily Americans or Asians like the Chinese or Koreans.
Even when they do portray foreign characters, it is mostly in supporting roles. We hope there are more representations of not only just Australia but other countries in anime as well. Stay tuned for more updates and interesting articles on anime/manga/manhwa, movies, dramas, etc.
