Potara (ポタラ) are earrings wore by the Kaioshin (Supreme Kais). These earrings are worn by all Kaioshin, as part of their standard outfits. When one pair of Potara Earrings are worn by a single person they have no special properties. However, if two individuals each wear one earring on opposite ears, the true power of the artifacts is revealed. The earrings have the ability to fuse two people into a single entity, substantially enhancing the abilities of both individuals. The resulting fusion lasts forever, even if the fused being removes the earrings. However, there is one instance where the Potara Fusion will be nullified and restore the fused being back to their original forms, which is when they are sucked into an environment that wouldn't support it (as seen with Vegito being absorbed into Super Buu).
