Power

Manga

Champa is trained by Vados, making him incredibly powerful. Vados says it should be obvious from the builds of Champa and Beerus to see who is stronger with a teasing smirk, thus implying that Beerus is possibly stronger than Champa. This is further supported when Champa later scolds Vados for saying this and also when Beerus laughs at the idea of Champa asking to fight him. In Dragon Ball Super it was also revealed that his overweight frame also causes him to have low stamina, unable to continuously move about for long periods of time before getting exhausted.

Beerus and Champa once engaged in a clash that destroyed many planets. While Champa was strong enough to keep up with Beerus, Beerus clearly had control of the fight for its duration; not bothering to fight back and dodging his brother’s attacks without much effort. When the two were both about to clash with their Spheres of Destruction, it was implied that the universe they were fighting in would be destroyed. At the end of the fight, Champa was knocked down with a single chop from Vados. When Beerus and Champa fight each other at the start of the Champa Saga in an up close purely punching fight their destructive energy begins to destroy both the Sixth and Seventh Universe and frightens Goku and Vegeta – who attempt to flee from it, requiring Whis and Vados to step in.

It is shown in his battle with Beerus that with his physical strength alone, Champa possesses enough power to destroy a planet just by punching its surface.
