"Hehe, just leave it to me! Bang!"
―BB Donpa's first words when confronting Gynamo and after being identified by the Bowzock leader.[src]

"I'm home!"
―BB Donpa when returning to the Baribarian and his final words before his death.[src]

BB Donpa (BBビービードンパ BīBī Donpa, 2, 9).

History

Known as the "Beethoven of Outer Space", BB Donpa is the Bowzock's best music conductor, able to blast sound waves from the horns on his wrists. Donpa is sent by Gynamo to cause a racket loud enough for UFOs to blow the planet up for the Bowzock. Once on Earth, Donpa carries out the plan by making cars fly around in a musical number with their car horns on full blast. But when the Carrangers arrive to stop him, Donpa uses the cars to smash them until Dappu brings the Giga Formula to them. Using the Formula Weapons, the Carrangers drive off the Wumpers and Zelmonda before forming the Formula Nova to blast Donpa as he escapes on his bike. Though he survived, Donpa couldn't stop his horns from making a racket as a UFO arrives near the Baribarian and vaporizes him with only his arm remaining.

BB Donpa reappears, slightly modified, as BB Dodonpa (ビービードドンパ BīBī Dodonpa), in a dream Kyosuke has. This dream Gorotsuki fights RV Robo, which the Carranger did not possess at the time of their initial battle. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 9: A U-Turn to the Stars

Personality

A famous space musician, he showed up to offer his services to the Bowzock. A boastful individual he is very proud of his musical abilities. He's fairly intelligent, coming up with a weird, but effective plan to defeat the Carrangers. However, his overconfidence and lack of control over his powers ultimately lead to his death.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Car Control: He had the power to control cars and make them fly, using them in his plan to defeat the Carrangers. He had cars from all over the world fly through the skies, honking their horns and blasting music, in an attempt to attract ships full of angry aliens to attack Earth, forcing the rangers to not only fight the Bowzock, but also other aliens, while crashing the cars into them when they tried to interfere.

  • Wrist Horn: He is able to blast sound waves from the horns on his wrists.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • BB Donpa was voiced by the late Kazumi Tanaka in his only Super Sentai role.

Design

  • BB Donpa was based on a musician combined with a loudspeaker and a zombie. His pompadour - in addition to being a stereotypical hairstyle for delinquents - was specifically meant to evoke the late rockstar Elvis Presley with its blonde state in his imaginary "BB Dodonpa" form referencing Presley's natural hair color.

Concept Art

Etymology

  • The "BB" in his name was a reference to the legendary blues musician B. B. King, while "Donpa" and "Dodonpa" are Japanese onomatopoeia for percussive musical sounds.

Notes

  • Donpa is the first monster to be summoned from the Gorotsuki.
  • His second form was never adapted into Power Rangers Turbo.
