  • show Description
  • Ueki is just an average junior high student who has the power to change trash into trees. This power was given to him by Koba-sen so that Ueki can participate in the "Battle of the Supernatural Powers". If Ueki wins, then Koba-sen becomes the new King of the Celestial World while Ueki will receive the "Talent of Blank", allowing him to choose whatever talent he desires. However, the battle will not be easy since he will have to face may unsavory opponents who want the "Talent of Blank" for their own selfish reasons. Ueki will undergo many trials and sacrifices in order to win the battle and prevent the "Talent of Blank" from falling into the wrong hands. Ueki Kousuke He may seem like a normal Jr. High student, but the only thing that begins to separate him from normal people is his power to turn normal recycled trash into trees. Though, it's not only for show as he will have to use it in his fights with 100 other combatants. Other than that, he may not always be intelligent when it comes to class time. Mori Ai Ueki's friend in Jr. High. She accompanies Ueki in his quest to challenge the many combatants and will try to aid him outside of the fights. Seichirou Sano The guy that can turn towels into iron. He is also Ueki's friend. Rihou Master of Taijutsu (Martial Arts), and he promises to train hard so he can live up to his father's legacy. He is among the evil guys that wishes to challenges Ueki, though he might have a change of heart. Koba-sen (Kobayashi-sensei) Teacher of Ueki & Mori. He's the god candidate that bestowed Ueki with the special ability to turn trash into trees. "God" (Kami-sama) The guy that calls the shots in how the tournament will be played out.

    • Opening Theme: "Falco" by Hitomi Shimatani Ending Theme: "Little Planets" by Aiko Kayo

    • Sacred Treasures: 2. Fuudou (Hood) - The two-star treasure. Gained through Perseverance. A giant arm grows out of the ground to protect Ueki from attacks. It can also be used offensively by striking at enemies. This roughly translates to "firmness".

    • Sacred Treasures: 1. Kurogane - The one-star treasure. Gained through Consciousness. A large cannon grows out of a tree from Ueki's arm and fires a large ball at the opponent. This roughly translates to "iron".

    • Sacred Treasures: 3. Ranma - The three-star treasure. Gained through Firmness. A large bladed weapon grows from a tree to strike the opponent. This roughly translates to "chaos".

    • Character Stats: Don 9th Grade Favorite words - "Horsepower, Violence Power, Noodles" NOTHING BEATS RAW POWER!

    • Ueki raises his Heavenly-Being star rank from 2 to 3 while training in the Awakening Organ. Ueki also gains the sacred treasure Gamma.

    • The Awakening Organ is an organ located above the stomach in a Heavenly Beast's body. The organ is a place where Heavenly Beings train to raise their star ranks, thus gaining the corresponding sacred treasures. However, Heavenly Beings in the Awakening Organ can only stay in there for 24 hours. If they don't get out by then, they will get digested. After leaving the Awakening Organ, Heavenly Beings can't go back in for 3 days.

    • Robert's Ten Don "The power to change his ring into a rocket." This can greatly amplify any attack. Very proud of his strength. Always has a huge smile on his face even though he has a very large mean streak to him. Ueki retires him from the tournament with his newfound ability of Masshu.
