* BadassMustache: Abobo's in-game sprite sported a horseshoe mustache in the original game, the arcade game also including a bearded variant. The VS character illustrations for the NES version gave Abobo a clean-shaved look though, giving him an appearance similar to [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos]] or [[StreetFighter Sagat]].
* BaldOfEvil: One of his most common looks is to be completely bald.

* BadassOnPaper: There is quite a contrast between his appearance and immense power and his actual demeanor. He '''looks''' the part of a BigBad and a final boss alright. The first time you meet him, he is sitting on a throne, looking all intimidating... ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny and then he speaks]]...''

[[folder:Jick]]
* AdaptedOut: Most of the console versions of the first game leaves him out and simply use Abobo in his place. Even ''Double Dragon Advance'' essentially replaces him with an actual mohawked Abobo.
* AllThereInTheManual: His official name was an obscure fact (due to his omission in console versions), but it was mentioned in print in a review by Famitsu.
* HeadSwap: of Abobo, allowing the game designers to save graphic space by having only having to draw his head.
* KingMook: He's tougher than Abobo, who is already tough enough as it is.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: The Green Jick who appears at the end of Mission 3
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His dark skin and hairstyle makes him a dead ringer for Creator/MrT.
[[/folder]]



* AdaptedOut: Also cut out from most versions of the first game, particularly the NES and Game Boy versions, as his role was served by Chin there.



* {{Expy}}: The Right Arm enemy in the NES version of the Second Game seems to take his role.
