Personality and Canon History
Please visit the canon page to see all about Nappa's canon appearance and character. As the usage of Nappa in The Forgotten and The Great War is canon following, his personality is the same as what is on that page; thus, pointless to copy here.
In the second chapter of this story, King Vegeta told Paragus and Layeeck that he didn't plan on fighting Zhukin's or Nappa's tribes in open combat, as such wars would likely result in many casualties on both sides. He stated that he planned on absorbing both tribes, first by defeating Nappa in single combat and then gaining his soldiers and then forcing Zhukin to surrender after showing the tribe leader King Vegeta's superior army. After King Vegeta learned from Ocra and Artachoc that the Tuffles were expanding onto his southern territory, King Vegeta moved against Nappa at once. He sent envoys to Nappa's region, informing the tribe leader that King Vegeta wanted to duel for their tribes. Nappa, being a prideful Saiyan, could not refuse this request. Soon, King Vegeta and some guards and advisers appeared at Nappa's main settlement. They were brought into Nappa's tent and there, King Vegeta fought Nappa after exchanging a few words with the brute. After wearing Nappa out, King Vegeta set loose a blistering combo of attacks that swiftly defeated the giant Saiyan. Nappa's guards tried to save their tribe leader, but they were killed by King Vegeta's guards and advisers. Then, King Vegeta gave Nappa the option of joining him or dying like his guards. Nappa chose to join with King Vegeta.
At the start of the third chapter, Nappa was with King Vegeta as they came upon King Vegeta's old settlement which had been destroyed by the Tuffles. Nappa then talked with King Vegeta and the king's other advisers about what had happened. Later that night, as Layeeck was questioning Nappa on his loyalty, the two were attacked by three masked assassins. Layeeck fought and killed one of them while Nappa took on two of them and killed them both. Afterwards, the two ran over to King Vegeta's tent and found that he had also been attacked by assassins. There, they also met with Dogom who also reported being attacked by assassins. The group quickly realized that it was Zhukin who had sent assassins against King Vegeta and his advisers. This prompted King Vegeta to move against Zhukin at once. The next day, King Vegeta set out with some guards and advisers for Zhukin's settlement. Nappa was one of those advisers. He went with King Vegeta to Zhukin's settlement (which was the old seat of the last Legendary Super Saiyan) and watched King Vegeta fight and kill Zhukin. In Zhukin's tent, Nappa fought against and killed some of Zhukin's guards when they attacked King Vegeta's group and listened to King Vegeta's speech after the Saiyan killed Zhukin.
In the fourth chapter, Nappa was first seen with King Vegeta and his war council. He didn't really offer much advice, his only contribution being to call the Tuffles cowards. Nappa later fought against General Amanito's army in the battle that took place near the end of this chapter.
In the fifth chapter, Nappa was amongst the Saiyan army that pursued General Amanito's Tuffle army to Shintake Square. Under the order of King Vegeta, he formed a legion that attacked the town from the far right side. Nappa led his troops against the Tuffles, resulting in a particularly bloody conflict. Nappa himself killed hundreds of Tuffles before being separated from his fellow warriors. Eventually, he found the mech that had forced Paragus and Layeeck to retreat and attacked it. After a short battle, Nappa defeated the mech. However, at that time, General Amanito and his personal guards appeared and attacked Nappa. The result of their battle was not revealed in this chapter, but when Amanito was later seen, he was bruised and covered in wounds, implying Nappa got a few good hits on him. However, as Nappa was not seen again after Amanito attacked him (even when the Saiyans retreated), it was implied, in this chapter, that Amanito killed him.
Nappa was one of the last Saiyans to return to King Vegeta's camp from Shintake Square in the sixth chapter. When he returned, he was quite angry at King Vegeta and demanded to duel him for ordering the retreat (as Nappa saw that act as a sign of weakness). King Vegeta, who was still weak from the wound he had suffered in that battle agreed to see Nappa. After trying to talk to Nappa, he realized he could not reason with the brute - they had to fight to settle matters. King Vegeta was weakened when Nappa hit him on his wound, opening it again and slowing down King Vegeta significantly. However, despite that, King Vegeta was able to defeat Nappa and knock the Saiyan unconscious after a short battle. This firmly showed that King Vegeta was the rightful king of the Saiyans and that Nappa was not wise to challenge him.
Near the beginning of the seventh chapter, Nappa was seen with King Vegeta's war council as they formulated a new plan to take on the Tuffles. During that meeting, he made it known that he was opposed to Zorn's idea that they should use stealth to combat the Tuffles. At the conclusion of that meeting, Nappa was given command of a Saiyan army and sent to a different location on the planet to wage war on the Tuffles. He soon led a force against Vitandi's army in the night. Nappa's force sneaked up on Vitandi's camp and overwhelmed them silently. Nappa himself pulled Vitandi from his bed and executed him by blowing up his head with a ki blast. Near the end of this chapter, one of Nappa's guards warned Nappa against attacking a Tuffle army that was much larger than Nappa's Saiyan army. Nappa ignored him and led the attack anyway. In the ensuing fight, many of the Saiyans (as well as many Tuffles), including Nappa's guard, were killed. Though Nappa fought valiantly, he soon realized that his group of warriors was too few to take on the Tuffles. Ignoring his Saiyan pride, he eventually ordered his army to retreat through the air.
At the beginning of the ninth chapter, Nappa was present with the rest of King Vegeta's war council as they argued about how to rescue King Vegeta when a Tuffle holo-recording device appeared before them. Nappa, like the other members of King Vegeta's war council, watched the message on that device relayed by their king himself. In the message, King Vegeta asked his war council to come to the Tuffle capital to negotiate a peace treaty between the Saiyans and Tuffles but to not bring any guards with them. He did not know how they would be able to assault the Tuffle capital, but after Lascon came up with an idea, all of the Saiyans left with him. Nappa later went to the Tuffle capital with the rest of King Vegeta's war council and army and fought an army of Tuffles there. Nappa fought with Layeeck during the battle. At one point, the two were seen standing on a pile of Tuffle bodies, repelling waves of Tuffles from all sides with energy and physical attacks. Soon after, they were attacked by a massive mech. After double-teaming the mech for a short while, Layeeck and Nappa combined their energy beams into a single more powerful beam and shot it at the mech, obliterating the thing in a gigantic explosion.
Near the beginning of the tenth chapter, Layeeck told King Vegeta that Nappa and Paragus had already returned with their armies back to their old posts across the planet (they had abandoned these posts to rescue King Vegeta in the previous chapter). Later, Nappa and his army were shown transforming into Great Apes. Nappa and his Great Ape army then attacked the most powerful Tuffle armies, taking a few casualties in the engagement, but otherwise smashing the best Tuffle defenses on the entire planet. Overall, Nappa participated in several battles against Tuffle armies and cities that night and caused much bloodshed and destruction in his Great Ape form before the end of this chapter.
Near the beginning of the eleventh chapter, some Saiyans were shown to be rioting in the streets of the Saiyan cities (for they wanted to fight, and with the Tuffles gone, they had no one to fight but themselves). Nappa took part in one such brawl. Later, Nappa left the planet and conquered many planets, murdering billions of aliens in the process. Later, Nappa went to an alien world with King Vegeta, Layeeck, Cyleria, Ocra, and a few unnamed Saiyans. They easily wiped out all native life. Nappa complained that the natives hadn't been worth the trouble, as they had been so weak. When the Arcosians appeared, Nappa and Layeeck warmed up energy blasts, preparing to kill them. However, King Vegeta ordered the two to not attack. When the Arcosians stated that they wanted to form an alliance with the Saiyans, Nappa questioned what the Saiyans would get out of such an alliance, prompting the Arcosians to show them the riches they would give the Saiyans for their help. Nappa then silently watched King Vegeta forge an alliance with the Arcosians. He then went to New Arcose with many other Saiyans and helped conquer the planet for the Arcosians. He killed many natives in the ensuing planet clearing. Later, Nappa, along with the other Saiyans, received Planet Trade Organization armor from the Arcosians, and boasted recklessly that he didn't need armor, as no one in the universe could kill him.
Nappa was the General of the Saiyan Army, which made him second in command under King Vegeta. In The Forgotten, Nappa mainly acted as a trainer for young Vegeta and Ledas. And while he was strong in his own right, the two quickly lost respect for him when they surpassed him in strength. His survival of the Genocide of the Saiyans was by accident, as he was being assigned to guard the Prince by King Vegeta during that event. Nappa continued to work with Vegeta throughout the rest of his life.
In this story, Nappa and Prince Vegeta were assigned to clear and prepare a planet to be sold by Planet Trade Organization. Nappa took the lead on the mission, destroying the planet's main city and defeating its army all by himself. Though he sustained seemingly massive injuries, Nappa killed all of the aliens without complaint. Perhaps Nappa's grief about Planet Vegeta's destruction influenced his aggressive planet-clearing. Afterwards, Nappa left the planet with his prince.
At the start of this story, everyone on Frieza's ship went to Planet Frieza 079 to restock the saucer's vending machine with space funyuns. Later, when Kuriza and Vegeta fought in one of the outpost's hallways, Nappa appeared and said hello to the two. Vegeta tried to attack Kuriza, but Nappa picked him up by the tail to stop him. Vegeta nonetheless shot a slew of indigo energy balls at Kuriza, which did not damage the Arcosian, but blew a hole in the wall, letting in the icy winds and snow.
Nappa punched him in the gut for being disobedient and then dropped him, flying out through the hole. He told them to behave and that he was going to make Super Saiyan snow angels. He also told Vegeta that if he didn't stop being a bully to Kuriza, that Space Santa wouldn't get him a present that year. Then, Nappa left. At the end of the first section, Vegeta had a dream about Nappa, Guldo, and Space Santa.
In the second section, Kuriza ran into a man dressed as Space Santa in the hallway, but that was actually just Nappa.
In the third scene, Nappa strode out of the ship and asked Zarbon what was going on, for he had missed Captain Ajira's debriefing. Zarbon told him about the ship not starting up. Nappa showed the emperor and his lackeys the big bag of presents he had gathered up for space Christmas. Dodoria took the bag and Nappa was dismissed, as Frieza did not like being in the presence of monkeys not named Vegeta.
He went to go see the prince. He asked Vegeta why he wasn't playing with the others. Vegeta flatly stated that he hated all of them. The bigger Saiyan tried to cheer up the prince about space Christmas, but it did not seem to work. He threw a snowball at Vegeta, but that only got the boy mad. Vegeta shouted that Space Santa wasn't real, which made Nappa very unhappy. Just then, Kuriza pegged Vegeta with a snowball, which upset the young Saiyan. He prepared an energy blast in response, but Nappa was able to cool down his emotions. Vegeta marched off back to the ship, nonetheless.
Recoome came over and asked Nappa what he had gotten him for space Christmas. He requested a new tutu, as he had ripped his last one. Nappa implied that he hadn't gotten Recoome anything, for he was a bad boy, but before Recoome could respond, Captain Ginyu hit him with a snowball that had a rock in it, which left a deep gash in the man's forehead and knocked him out cold.
Everyone returned to the ship at around noon, and it took off shortly afterwards. As Nappa strode down the hallway, he noticed that Kuriza had received a brand new hover pod for space Christmas. The boy seemed quite pleased with the gift. Then, he noticed a space snuggie on the seat, and he grew even more happy. At that moment, a soldier rushed into the boy's room, delivering him a fresh cup of hot space cocoa, which the boy seemed to appreciate. He spared the soldier, who seemed mightily pleased with being allowed to live. Nappa was confused, for he hadn't gotten Kuriza anything for space Christmas.
Then, he visited Vegeta's room, noting that the boy hadn't opened his present, which remained wrapped on his bed. He begged Vegeta to open the present. The boy was getting undressed, but relented, for he wanted Nappa to shut up about it. He opened his present, a stuffed Saibaman toy, but did not seem to appreciate it. He asked Nappa to leave him, and the older Saiyan obliged. Nappa worked out in the training room for a few hours before retiring to his quarters. On his way back, he looked into Vegeta's room and noticed the boy was sleeping, hugging the stuffed animal tight to his chest. Nappa was proud of himself for finally giving Vegeta a gift that he liked.
