* StealthPun: Bo-bobo's afro appears to be one based on the fact that an alternate name for the afro in Japanese is ''bakuhatsu atama'', or "[[YourHeadASplode exploding head]]". Knowing this, it suddenly makes perfect sense when you consider what [[HokutoNoKen the main inspiration for the manga]] was.

The show was very well liked in America and Japan; the dub wasn't a direct translation from the Japanese original (just look at the narrator) as a lot of the jokes from the original source were certain around Japanaese culture and likely wouldn't translate well to English speaking countries though the writers did a good job working around this, the voice acting in both versions was great (Creator/KirkThornton, an incredibly famous voice actor, voiced Don Patch and is considered to be one of his best roles), and it appealed to many people. However, the anime was cancelled after 76 episodes, and the American manga beginning at Volume 11 (renumbered) on hiatus, with only five volumes released (supposedly they are going to translate more in the future, according to an email). The Japanese manga is finished, but there is still high demand from fans to finish the anime.

cleaning Captain Obvious trope sinkhole use, project thread here
* {{Tsundere}}: Torpedo Girl. One moment she acts like a giddy schoolgirl (especially when she fawns over Softon,) the next she violently blasts through anyone who provokes her like a, erm, [[CaptainObvious torpedo]]. However, she is still dangerous in Dere mode (albeit unintentionally dangerous.)[[note]]And that's because...she's a torpedo![[/note]]

In the post-apocalyptic world of the year "[[YearX 300X]]", Bo-bobo fights the machinations of the Margarita (from ''marugarite'', the Japanese word for "bald-shaven") Empire and their leader, Emperor Tsuru Tsururuna IV (Czar Baldy Bald IV), who has sent his "Hair Hunters" to shave the hair off everyone in the world. Ostensibly, Bo-bobo does this through the art of ''Hanage Shinken'' (translated as "Fist of the Nose Hair"), an oddball form of martial arts that allows him to manipulate his body hair to defeat his enemies. More often, though, he defeats his enemies by confusing the hell out of them with his oddball behavior and an assortment of sight gags (like [[GhostInTheMachine little people living inside his afro]]). [[spoiler: This is eventually revealed to be an [[ConfusionFu actual fighting style]] in the world of ''Bo-bobo'', known as "Hajike" (from the Japanese word "hajikeru", which literally means "to burst" but can also mean "to go crazy", translated as "Wiggin" ala the phrase "Wiggin Out"), where the object is to use these strange happenings to distract and confuse your enemy into submission.]]
