Man With A Mission (often spelled MAN WITH A MISSION) is an alternative Japanese band formed in 2010 in Tokyo. Its lineup consists of members Tokyo Tanaka (vocals), Kamikaze Boy (bass), Jean-Ken Johnny (guitar and vocals), DJ Santa Monica (DJ) and Spear Rib (drums). They're pretty unique in that each member constantly wears a differently designed wolf mask. Their music explores a bunch of different genres, mixing pop, hard rock, dance and punk elements. They're mostly known in Japan, but have also briefly toured the US and parts of Europe and were invited as guests to Japan Expo 2012 in France. One of their songs, "Emotions", was used as a theme for HentaiKamen's 2013 live action adaptation.

!!Man With A Mission contains examples of:

* AnimalMotifs: Wolves and five of them, to boot!
* AnonymousBand: No one really knows what the guys actually look like or who they are.
* {{Backstory}}: They claim to have been created by a genius biologist named [[JimiHendrix Jimee Hendrixx]], who froze them to eternal sleep until the ice melted in 2010. [[ItMakesSenseInContext It kinda makes sense in context]].
* BilingualBonus: They usually switch between English and Japanese in most songs.
* CatchPhrase: "Gow gow".
* CelebrityEndorsement: The video for Take Me Home shows the band snowboarding on Yes boards.
* CensoredTitle: Never Fxxkin' Mind The Rules.
* CloudCuckooLander: They kinda come across as that when you read their interviews.
-->"We’re not "wearing" [our masks]. We’re made like this."
-->"We were made in a laboratory on an island which is not on this world anymore."
* CoolMask: Their most evident characteristic.
* CoverVersion: They covered both {{Nirvana}}'s Smells Like Teen Spirit and Lithium.
* FurryFandom: Very much so.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: They have them in the video for Feel And Think.
* {{Homage}}: "Green-Tinted Sixties Mind" is an original song based around the [[HairMetal Mr. Big]] song of the same title (itself a [[WidgetSeries Widget Song]] [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff of sorts]]), sampling the guitar intro and making several lyrical nods.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Their range tends to be between 5 and 8, with quieter songs down to 4 or 3.
* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: WordOfGod says their intention is to make music from all kinds of elements.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Or in their case, Japanese Rockstar Anthro Wolves.
* PettingZooPeople: They claim to actually ''be'' wolves.
* SelfTitledAlbum: Man With A Mission.
* ShoutOut: The band is really fond of them. They quote TheBeatles in "Fly Again" ("life just comes and goes / tomorrow never knows"), the ''Bible'' in "Emotions" ("you'd always [...] loved your neighbors as yourself"), and the video for "Distance" features an ochtaedron that looks quite suspiciously like Ramiel from NeonGenesisEvangelion (the song itself seems to sample its scream, or at least features a sample that sounds quite similar, pointing out that it's probably an intentional nod).
* SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein: Their lyrics can easily fall victim of this, thanks to the random Japanese words and their non-native English.
* StageNames: Obviously.
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: Well, at least it's pretty good for a Japanese band.
* VocalTagTeam: All songs feature Tokyo Tanaka and Jean-Ken Jonny in varying amounts.
* WidgetSeries: Oh, yes.
