"The first thing is to wipe out this filthy planet."
Cacao in Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might

Cacao (カカオ, Kakao; FUNimation "Cacao") is a member of Crusher Tullece Corps.

Cacao's Japanese name is a pun on the word Kakao, or Cacao in English.


His appearance is marked by cyborg components adorned over skin similar in appearance to magma. Cacao has a large array of weapons at his disposal which help him swiftly defeat Yamucha during an encounter with the Z Warriors.



Cacao was originally a galactic lone-wolf bounty hunter. Prior to that, he was a Battle Cyborg on Planet Ikonda who fought in an interstellar war. He volunteered to join Turles' group in order to strengthen his cyborg body, which was made from a special metal that made him immune to ordinary attacks.[1] Cacao often paired with Daiz for combination attacks.


Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might

Cacao was killed during Son Goku's Kaio-ken rampage against him and his comrades when Goku gives Cacao a solid knee-kick to his chest in Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might.

Cacao's hidden weapons
  • The mannerism and effect used for Cacao's voice varies with each dub. In the original Japanese version of the The Tree of Might, he says da, the Russian word for "yes". In the uncut Ocean Group dub, he only grunts. In the studio's edited dub, as well as Funimation's dub, he speaks in full-fledged sentences and has an electronic-garbled voice (though his mouth remains closed).
  • Like the rest of Turles' henchmen (other than Rasin and Lakasei), Cacao's name is only given in the movie's credits and character profiles.
  • His name comes from the pun of cocoa, or cacao plant, which is used to make chocolate.
  • Cacao is the only character in the series to wear silver-colored Saiyan Armor and also the only one to wear such armour that contains hidden weapons.
