* {{Hypocrite}}: Kodo Fuyuki exposed the virtues of sports entertainment while demanding Hayabusa remove his mask because he didn't want "{{superhero}}es" in FMW. Then he turned around and gave the Hayabusa gimmick to Mr. Gannosuke.
* IHaveTheHighGround: Hayabusa was the top high-flyer in FMW.

Gannosuke, [[VillainBall albeit to further ruin Hayabusa's name.]]
* IHaveTheHighGround: Hayabusa was the top high-flyer in FMW. This promotion wasn't afraid of things much higher than the top turnbuckle either, like the dreaded scaffold.



* MaleGaze: Unapologetic about it too, at least when it came to the non wrestling valets. A few of the wrestlers made threats to the cameras.(The male gaze didn't start until they started parodying the [=McMahon=]Russo trends. Naturally this would be the one thing they played straight, even if not 100% of the time)

* NinetiesAntihero: You can find almost all your 1990s baby face archetypes here, but since it started 1989, [[UnBuiltTrope most like were still fairly pleasant and affable]]. Tarzan Gotoh might have been the first to become consistently as bad as a heel.

** Commissioner Kodo Fuyuki got rid of the popular brass knuckles title belt and six man street fight title belts, adding "World Entertainment Wrestling"(WEW) title belts in their place. Yes, FMW was essentially using WWE for CheapHeat before WWE was WWE.

'''Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling''' is a UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}ese ProfessionalWrestling promotion founded by Atsushi Onita in 1989. He started it due to the two main promotions, Wrestling/AntonioInoki's Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling and Giant Baba's Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling, rejecting his ideas about how "everything should be allowed in ''[=Puroresu=]''". Onita expanded on the brawling style he had encountered in Wrestling/JerryLawler's Continental Wrestling Association in Memphis, Tennessee and the use of barbed-wire in the World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico. Baba derisively labeled the FMW style "{{Garbage Wrestl|er}}ing", though it is more respectfully labeled "Hardcore." While Onita was the focus, and many Japanese wrestlers (W*ING Kanemura, Wrestling/MasatoTanaka, Hayabusa, Tarzan Goto, Mr. Gannosuke) made their names there, it also was the promotion where American wrestler Wrestling/MikeAwesome made his career as "The Gladiator" and also where Wrestling/{{Sabu}} first made his name, and, as a result of competing in no-rope barbed-wire matches, became the "scarred-up freak" the world would come to know and love. Much of what FMW pioneered would later be brought to US audiences via Wrestling/{{ECW}}. The company closed down in 2002. It was revived 2015, with Hideki Takahashi as president and Hayabusa as the main producer, now calling the company Cho Sento Puroresu FMW, with Atsushi Onita promised to participate in some form as well.
