Champa’s name seems to come from “champagne”, continuing the alcohol name puns that the Gods of Destruction and their attendants possess.
Champa is a purple cat-like humanoid, similar to Beerus, but with a plumper build contrasting Beerus and likewise a much shorter tail. He wears clothings that resemble that of the ancient Egyptian royalty not unlike Beerus, complete with a red and pink collar with white linings on both edges and a red circle at the front, corresponding with Vados, his attendant. He also wears golden bangles and arm rings.

Resurrection ‘F’ Saga
Main article: Resurrection ‘F’ SagaChampa and Vados are in the seventh universe searching for a specific planet. Champa demands Vados to destroy the planet, but Vados wants Champa to do so. Champa gets angry, so Vados does it. The planet they had just destroyed is not the one they were looking for, so they continue their search for the planet.
Main article: Champa Saga Champa visits Beerus’ planet and wonders who Goku and Vegeta are, thinking they are new students. Vados explains to Goku and Vegeta that Champa is Beerus‘ twin brother and is the God of Destruction from thesixth universe. Champa tells Whis to wake up Beerus for a duel of foods. Champa and Beerus exchange foods and wonders where Beerus got his delectable from and was told that he received it from Earth. Champa tries to remember if his universe had an Earth but asks Vados to search for it, in which she did. Vados explains to everyone that their universe has an Earth but the Earthlings are extinct due to a war. Champa then challenges Beerus in a sixth and seventh universe invitational tournament of five warriors from their universes and the winner has the seventh universe’s Earth.
Champa explains to Beerus if he won, he will use the Super Dragon Balls to switch Earths. However, if Beerus wins, Champa says he will give Beerus the balls but the last one is for him to find. The rules for the tournament were settled between them: the rules are the same as the Tenkaichi Budokai, the tournament will begin in one week of the 8th Solar Calendar (five Earth days). As Champa and Vados are leaving the planet, he thinks that Goku and Vegeta are just pushovers. Champa goes and uses a planet called, the Nameless Planet to create the arena for the tournament. Champa gets asked about his decision for picking his fighters by Vados. Champa recognizes that Vegeta and Goku are Saiyans and that he should get Saiyans himself.
Champa later selects his warriors for his team. He finds the best warriors from his universe: Hit, Cabba, Frost,Botamo, and Magetta. The day of the tournament, Champa is waiting for the arrival of Beerus and his group. As they arrive, Champa greets them and is pleased that they showed up. Beerus speaks to Champa about the Super Dragon Balls. Champa claims that Beerus knew of the Super Dragon Balls, so Beerus lets it slide because they’re brothers. The written exam, requested by Vegeta, is beginning. Majin Buu is the only one to fail, so that leaves the tournament five on four in favor of Champa’s team.
Champa watches the first bout between Botamo and Goku, who Vados recognizes from being on Beerus’ planet. Champa says he underestimated Goku’s power, but says that Botamo has something for Goku.
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.
