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

* BloodKnight: He's so eager to brawl that he starts jumping around and taunting Mac ''on the intro screen''. Both of his between-round quotes in the first fight firmly cement this:



* CharacterizationMarchesOn: SNES Aran Ryan: [[FlatCharacter no personality to speak of]]. Wii Aran Ryan: ''complete lunatic.'' Not only that: He was one of the few characters in the SNES game to actually adhere to boxing rules (clinching is a legal technique). However, in the Wii game, most of the things he does in the ring are blatant violations of the rules (elbow strikes, headbutt, a WEAPON).

* CombatSadomasochist: He's enjoying the whole "people getting punched in the face" thing ''waaay'' too much, and it doesn't seem to matter who's being hit. Land a hit on him? Deranged laughter. Take a hit from him? Gleefully vicious leering-

* PintsizedPowerhouse: Hardly tiny, but at 5' 7" he's the shortest character in the game. And he used to be ''[[CharacterExaggeration even smaller]]'', being only 4'8" in the NES game. Not to mention, he only weighs 110 lbs, making him a flyweight at the heaviest.

* DeathOrGloryAttack: His [[OneHitKill Bull Charge]]. If it hits, it '''hurts'''. If you counter with a gut punch at just the right moment, though, it will knock him down on the spot.

* {{Determinator}}: Thanks in part to [[GoodBadBugs a bug]], he's the only boxer who cannot ever be knocked down for a count of ten in the SNES version. He has to be [=TKO'd=] to beat him. A bit ironic considering that this was the weakest form of the character.

* WakeUpCallBoss: You know Title Defense mode is hardcore when even Glass Joe can kick your ass.
** This is a neat introduction to Title Defense, as it deliberately messes with someone just entering T.D. Mode. The player has been facing increasingly faster opponents from Major Circuit onward. They have just beaten Mr. Sandman, who demands quick reflexes and moving near-immediately if Sandman even looks like he's moving. And then you fight Glass Joe again, who has much slower punches and a number of delayed ones. Joe gets most people on the first time in T.D. precisely because he's the slowest.
