* AdaptationalBadass: Though not to nearly the same extent as VideoGame/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.

Released by [[Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment 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.

** Already mentioned, ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' included Bravoman (paired up with ''Franchise/WonderMomo'') as playable; Waya-Hime, Benjamin and Pistol Daimyo as enemies and Dr. Bomb as a {{NPC}}.
** The comic and cartoon series have a short crossover with Franchise/WonderMomo as well (the latter to promote the new ''Wonder Momo'' anime series).

** Also literally brought up in the crossover mini-arc with ''Franchise/WonderMomo'': [[{{Mentors}} Glooder]] forces a retcon after [[spoiler:Anti-Bravoman and Momo merge into Anti-Momo]] since he considered it too important a development for her to happen outside her own series. [[spoiler:And it was a big foreshadowing for Wonder Momo's own webcomic as well.]]

* 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.
