Satan is the World Martial Arts Champion and the Earth’s “saviour”. When Goku and his team were on Namek planet, he won this title by defeating normal earthlings in the World Martial Arts Tournament. His personality is kind, brave, and a little too egotistical. 

Satan is one of the wealthiest and most famous men in Dragon Ball’s world. He has a tall body, black curly hair, and a distinctive mustache. Before Satan, his real and original name was Mark. The majority of Earthlings believe he defeats Cell in Cell games. As a result, a city’s name is changed from “Orange City” to “Satan City” in honour of his alleged victory.

Goku has high regard for Satan after witnessing his generosity and valour against Majin Buu. Satan is the only one who convinced the people of Earth to give their energy to Goku’s Super Spirit Bomb to defeat Kid Buu.
