* GeniusBonus: During intermissions in his Title Defense match, he can be seen reading a manga. A careful look at his eye and head movements suggest [[ShownTheirWork he's actually reading it right-to-left]].



* ShowingTheirWork: He's staring at Mac when he bows, which is a very disrespectful sign in Japanese culture. He's not being honorable, [[StealthInsult he's being a dick]]. [[note]]In Japan, you're supposed to look downward when you bow as a show of trust. Maintaining eye contact is considered disrespectful as it implies you don't trust the person you're bowing to enough to take your eyes off of them. Thus, because bowing implies respect, staring at someone while you bow is akin to mocking them. However, an exception can be made when Japanese fighters are within striking distance of each other. In that case, it would simply be considered a sign of prudence. That means that Piston Hondo isn't being disrespectful after all.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: As you can see, he definitely doesn't look like any normal human, even compared to the rest of the cast. It even extends to his nationality, which is the only one that is [[FictionalCountry fictional]].

* TheLastDance: A non-lethal example. The ending of the Wii remake has [[spoiler:Little Mac choose to make one last performance in Mac's Last Stand; defeating boxer after boxer until he loses three times and retires his successful career]].

* CompositeCharacter: In the Wii remake, Aran's elbow attacks are coincidentally similar to "illegal" moves the Bruiser Brothers used in Super Punch Out (SNES). He also has a head butt like Masked Muscle. Fitting for his [[CombatPragmatist pragmatism]].
