Released by {{Namco}} in 1988 for arcades and in 1990 for TurboGrafx16, '''Bravoman''' is a side-scrolling PlatformGame starring a parody of {{Tokusatsu}} and {{Sentai}} as its main protagonist. Our hero was once an average salaryman until he was granted awesome powers by the alien Alpha Man from Planet Alpha, in order to combat the evil Dr. Bomb. Bravoman's main method of attack is to extend his limbs forward to kick or punch at a distance, and he can also turn into a missile-armed submarine for underwater missions. Standing in his way is the good doctor's robot armies, plus [[{{Ninja}} ninja princess Waya-Hime]], [[ThePowerOfRock Heavy Metal Ninja Benjamin]] and [[EvilCounterpart Black Bravoman]], a rival salaryman with his same powers.

* NoExportForYou: The original arcade game.



* ActorAllusion: In the season finale, Bravoman gets fanmail from "Megafan1987" who tells him he's "cool but rude". This was [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Raphael]]'s description from the intro of the ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' cartoon, who Creator/RobPaulsen also voiced.
** Similarly [[MakessenseInContext when Waya is picking out weapons for the groomsmen to wield at her wedding]], the choice is between Sais and a Bo Staff, the weapons of both Ninja Turtles that Rob Paulsen has voiced. Alpha Man picks [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 Bo staffs as they are so in]].



* FandomNod: Episode 10 references the confusion over whether the single feature on Alpha's face is an eye or a mouth.

* BechdelTest: Bravowoman complains that Waya-Hime, the only other female character of note, fights with her over Bravoman in their first meeting, thus driving their score on the test way down.
** Since remedied by the side-story focused on Bravowoman, which sees her interacting with her sidekick Theta and her enemy-cum-friend the Mer-Queen.

* AdaptationalBadass: Though not to nearly the same extent as DigDug most of the characters that appear in NamcoXCapcom. Averted in the Webcomic as it sticks to the game's comedy root albeit trading the surreal humour for self-referential humour.

* NintendoHard

to:

* NintendoHardNintendoHard: Referenced in the animated sereis where the last line was Bravoman playing the original game and yelling about how hard it is.


Added DiffLines:

** CrossoverCameo: In the same episode Mappy apears on a TV screen and a Billboard shows Pac-Man.


Added DiffLines:

* WomenAreWiser: Played straight with Bravowoman but toyed with for Wonder Momo. Momo is slightly more competent in combat than Bravoman but was fooled by an even more transparent deception by her nemesis than Bravoman was.
