How Yamcha joined the Tourney
A former desert bandit, Yamcha was once an enemy of Goku, but quickly reformed and became a friend and ally. Brave, boastful and dependable, Yamcha is a very talented martial artist and one of the most gifted Humans on Earth, possessing skills and traits that allow him to fight alongside his fellow Z Fighters when major threats loom. However, by the latter half of Dragon Ball Z, he is largely outclassed by both his allies and their enemies, and eventually retires from fighting. His blood type is O.
After the battle against Majin Buu ended in Z Fighter victory, Yamcha retired to be a baseball player. He soon heard rumors of a girl named Koshosho holding a dating fighting contest.

Spirit Ball (Final Smash)

He then gathers surrounding energy into the open palm and shapes the energy into a yellow-orange sphere. He then says "You ready!?" and slings it at the opponent while announcing the Final Smash's name. If hit, Yamcha guides the ball with his index and middle finger together, hitting the opponent six times. He then slings it down with "This'll finish you!" then the Spirit Ball knocks the opponent away.
