Added DiffLines:

* WeakFamilyResemblance: With his beautiful older sister and wimpy little brother. When Mamoru's gym-mates don't realize the relation at first, they're amazed that a woman so attractive and refined would have anything to do with their meathead friend.

Added DiffLines:

* StrongFamilyResemblance: He has a very similar face and physique to his older brother, who also happens to be a gifted and renowned athlete. They could be twins, if not for Mamoru's pompadour. Averted with his older sister, who is drop-dead ''gorgeous'', and baby brother, a meek little boy, who both have softer features and lighter hair than their brothers.

* IAmNotLeftHanded: Takamura is a fundamentally traditional boxer, with no Sunday punches or gimmicks, just good form and excellent conditioning. Unorthodox fighters like may make the mistake of thinking he's a MasterOfNone, but the reality is that Kamagawa had to drill this balanced, composed style into him, and he's actually far more dangerous when he's brawling with abandon.

* PowerCopying: He has no Sunday punches of his own, but has a knack for imitating the techniques and stances of other boxers to BeatThemAtTheirOwmGame.

* {{Determinator}}: Averted. He never had to fight from equal footing or worse before Takamura, and the ego shattering leads to his VillainousBreakdown.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: GracefulLoser]]: [[spoiler: He accepts his loss to Miyata and doesn't pay Mr. Sakaguchi's abuse afterwards any mind.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoStoic: He seems to be a pretty level-headed guy, with a very calm, professional bearing towards his opponents before and even during a bout. But [[spoiler: once Miyata gains the upper hand, Randy grows '''furious''' and goes all out.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NotWhatISignedOnFor: He used to serve in the US military as Ralph Anderson's trainer. His patriotism compelled him to do his duty, but he was personally shocked and disgusted by Anderson's racism and underhanded boxing style.

* HiddenDepths: He comes across as a [[BloodKnight violent]], [[{{Jerkass}} obnoxious]] brute, but his passion and respect for boxing is sincere and his loyalty to his coach is immense. Despite his thuggish demeanor and [[CharlesAtlasSuperPower natural strength]], he trains extremely hard and devotes every day to keeping in shape and making weight, and his oafish behavior belies a keen eye and a deep understanding of the scientific and technical aspects of the sport.

* MasterOfAll: Easily the most well-rounded boxer in the series. He can out-brawl [[TheBerserker Bryan Hawk]] with brute strength and instinct, best [[JackOfAllStats David Eagle]] with just the fundamentals and trounce a worldclass opponent using only his left.

* PowerLimiter: In a way, his weight management. Because Japan lacks boxers in higher weight classes, Takamura needs to lose a lot of weight in order to fight in the lighter weight classes. Because of that he never really fought a boxing match being at Full Power.

** OTOH, he's also often in the receiving end. His {{Jerkass}} behavior is often brought up by many others, and TeamDad Kamogawa [[AmusingInjuries beats him up with his cane]] when he goes too far.

* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Often uses elaborate suplexes and head/armlocks to show off and harass his friends at Kamogawa Gym. It's pretty harsh, but considering how hard he can punch they should count themselves lucky he's not hitting them instead.
