* HairTriggerTemper: Despite clearly having some Berserk Buttons, pretty much ''anything'' can set Takamura off. For one thing, he gets irritated both when people are rude and cocky to him ''and'' when people are too polite and meek with him, so avoiding his wrath is practically unavoidable.

* BerserkButton: As an arrogant egomaniac, boxers who either insult him or actually make him work harder for a victory will quickly send him flying into a rage in the ring. He's also not fond of people who cheat in the ring or otherwise disrespect the sport of boxing, like Ippo. Lastly, on a more comical note, he can't stand women paying attention to other guys around him (especially if it's Ippo) and he usually reacts with violence.

* TheGift: Ippo was practically ''made'' for elite in-boxing. He's naturally short in stature and also has short arms and a solidly built frame, giving him the right physicality for the job. Most tellingly though, his fists happen to be flat and brick shaped and he has puffy palms, meaning every punch lands with as much surface area- and force- as humanly possible. In other words, his hands were made for knocking people out.



* FinishingMove: Averted. Takamura does ''not'' have a Sunday Punch. His basic punches and boxing style is so effective that he's never '''needed'' one.

* HotBlooded: Attacks everything in his life with a burning passion and a disregard for others' safety and/or feelings.



* CowardlyLion: ''Coward'' might be a bit strong, but out of the protagonists, he's he one most likely to complain and/or be scared when he has to face a strong opponent.



* PlayingPossum: A favorite tactic of his in the ring.



* JackOfAllStats: During Kimura's spar against Miyata in preparation for his match against Mashiba, Miyata tells Kimura that he has no weaknesses, but he doesn't have any strengths either. This comment is what led to Kimura developing a Sunday punch.

This comment is what led to Kimura developing a Sunday punch. To emphasize this further, even the shape of his fist is completely standard and unremarkable.



* OutOfFocus: Though he's always present, he typically gets the least attention story and character wise compared to the other four main boxers. However, he did take the leading role in he and Aoki's backstory.



* DeadpanSnarker: She has her moments

* CasanovaWannabe

to:

* CasanovaWannabeCasanovaWannabe: He very rarely actually gets some action with the ladies, mostly because he acts like a perverted Jerkass the second he sees an opening. Regardless, he himself has a very high view of his alleged "ability" to get women, as you might expect.


Added DiffLines:

* HairTriggerTemper
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Despite ostensibly being a Japanese hero due to his prowess in the ring, he's pretty much despised by the public thanks to his [[{{Jerkass}} personality]]. It's not uncommon for his matches to begin with applause and then end with boos and food being thrown at him by the time he's in the winner's circle.

%%* BlondGuysAreEvil: Subverted after [[spoiler:his match with Nekota]]. Even though he has yet to be shown in the anime, we know he's blond because he is shown to be such in the video games.



* BlondGuysAreEvil: He saw Bryan Hawk for what he was, but his curiosity got the better of him and he decided to train Bryan to become a boxer, thus granting him a "licence to kill."
** He's been shown to have a {{Slasher Smile}} during the Hawk vs. Takamura match.
** Subverted when he's shown again in the [[spoiler:Kamogawa/Nekota flashback]], and again with Woli.

* BloodKnight

to:

* BloodKnightBloodKnight: He enjoys beating people.



* HeelRealization: Not a redeeming one but he realizes that if he loses to Takamura it's back to be the psycho no one wants to hang out with. Knowing that if he gets away with his asshole antics it's only because of his belt forces him to still fight despite being scared.



* InterplayOfSexAndViolence

to:

* InterplayOfSexAndViolenceInterplayOfSexAndViolence: Needs sex or he will just downright kill someone with his fists.

to:

* LargeHamLargeHam: His speech about strenghtening up the japanese gene's pool.

%%* PintsizedPowerhouse

to:

%%* PintsizedPowerhousePintsizedPowerhouse:, He's even shorter than Ippo is, show already short even by Japanese standards! However he makes up for it by being built like a power lifter.
