* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Downplayed. While Mashiba can be a jerkass due to his refusal to trust others, and his highly aggressive and at times downright sadistic boxing style is a solid reason for his antagonistic image, he's nowhere as evil as people make him out to be, caring deeply about his family, trying to lead an honest life, and rarely showing any intentional aggression outside the ring.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassOnPaper: If you look at only his achievements in the ring- getting every single one of his victories by knockout, for example- you'd probably expect Ippo himself to be some cocky, super capable badass. However, his personality outside of the ring couldn't be more disconnected from his prowess inside it. Either way, it doesn't matter much because Ippo remains a dangerous opponent in the ring regardless of his meek nature.

* CombatPragmatist: Him [[spoiler: stepping on Miyata's foot]] was genuinely accidental, but it didn't stop him from using it to his advantage. He's GenreSavvy enough to believe that, even if he explained the circumstances, no one would believe it anyway.

* GenreSavvy: Knows damn well he'll be outmatched in a straight-up brawl. His unusual style is based on ensuring it never comes to that.



* {{Foil}}: To Kamogawa. Miguel has a great analytical eye for matches and is able to come up with effective tactics for his boxer because of it, but was content with relying on Hawk's natural talents and didn't really seem to manage to teach Woli anything valuable (yet). Kamogawa on the other hand carefully trains his boxers to perfection for every fight, but more often than not appears completely helpless ''during'' a match.

* GenreSavvy: When Takamura snaps and proceeds to beat the living daylights out of Hawk, Miguel realizes that Hawk himself, being so very similar to Takamura, must have a "hidden reserve" as well.

* TheAce: Easily has more natural ability than anyone else. More than Sawamura, Takamura, or Hawk. Woli can pull off lunches that need weeks of practice to master, using them effectively just on pure insrict.

* TheNoseKnows: When Miguel muttered that no Japanese boxer will ever be as much of a "samurai" as much as Kamogawa was, Woli claims that Ippo and Kamogawa has the same scent. Naturally, this hints to the fact that Kamogawa's true successor is Ippo, not Takamura.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Bananas, in tandem of his ape motifs.

* ReligiousBruiser: Was seen praying before the match on the ring, and keep talking about how God influences his loss and victory.



* InsufferableGenius: Was this when he was active, acting rather haughtily because he is more skilled than Kamogawa or Ginpachi, and he ''was.'' Scratch the "was" part. He is still this, being a more famous and skilled trainer than Kamogawa, and his arrogance haven't watered down even after years.



** Also to his boss back then, Ralph. Ralph is a skilled boxer on his own and is racist against Japanese people. Miguel is more skilled in training other people than being a boxer himself, and holds respect for Japanese people.

Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: Was this in Kamogwa's flashback arc. He detested Ralph, not only his racist view but also his dirty way using the Rabbit Punch, but the others says "It's all for America." and shares Ralph's racist view.

* DeadlyDoctor: He uses his medical knowledge to his advantage in boxing. As Sanada himself put it:
--> Sanada: I am skilled to fix human body with these hands... As much I am skilled to rip it apart.

Added DiffLines:

* DontYouDarePityMe: Gives this reaction to Miguel when he heard his warning. Twice. First, after he and Ginpachi was curbstomped by Ralph, Miguel warns them that Ralph is indeed dangerous. They look away from him. Miguel continued, they better not think about revenge for their own safety. They got even more pissed. The second one is more like Don't You Dare Pity My Pupils, after Ippo defeats Woli, Miguel warned him to not let Takamura and Ippo stall for too long or they would be broken, out of his genuine worry and respect. Kamogawa replied that his pupils are not fragile and it's none of his business.


Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandard: He shows hints that he actually didn't like Ralph either, disagreeing with his racist opinions internally, and when Ralph is up against Ginpachi,and Kamogawa after that, he was cheering for them internally. He also didn't seem to be that attached to Hawk as he is to Woli either.

**[[spoiler:Miyata himself says this: "It's not his (Mashiba) techniques, It's that insatiable thirst for victory that makes Mashiba so frightening."]]

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: Whereas some of the more antagonistic boxers had some redeeming qualities (Mashiba clearly loving his sister, Sawamura being the way he is because of an abusive father and Ralph Anderson changing his ways), he has none. He's openly racist towards the japanese, got into boxing just so he could beat the shit out of people and views women as nothing but sex objects. Y'know how Takamura is often viewed as a Heel in the ring? People were CHEERING for him to beat Hawk up.
