Awesome: Kinnikuman
Muscle Docking!
Behold, the series of Crazy Awesome that appeared on the scene before all other Crazy Awesome shows. Naturally, you should expect a page of all of its awesome moments.


Monster Extermination Chapters
  • Before his characterization was fully planned out, Terryman was basically an anime version of John Bradshaw Layfield, demanding pay from the Japanese government for saving them from monsters ("I don't know much about Japan, but in America, this is normal.") He manages to cross the line by kicking a kid because he didn't have enough money to pay him to save his father, causing Kinnikuman to punch some sense into him.
  • Usually whenever someone hurts or threatens to hurt a child would cause Kinnikuman to actually fight and be awesome, but there was an instance where there was a subversion. A monster attacks Mari's kindergarten, spurring Kin to rush out and confront it...only to find out that the kids like the monster more than being rescued by Kinnikuman. This leads to Meat having to go out and save the day.
  • Kinnikuman beating the crap out of Kinkotsuman in his first appearance back when he was considered a threat.
  • One of the few times Kinnikuman actually managed to beat a monster outright: ripping his way out of the Bottomless Alien.

20th Choujin Olympics
  • After spending the first half of the arc trying to sabotage the Olympics, Kinkotsuman actually helps in the second half, earning an awesome moment when he slaps some sense into Kinnikuman after he becomes too disheartened to continue to fight Robin Mask.
  • The final between Kinnikuman and Robin Mask, especially the ending.

American Tour Arc
  • Kinnikuman's victory over Jessie Mavia. A master of the move-reversal, Jessie had been considered 'unmovable, like the mountain' in that he pretty much turns every grapple Kin tries against him. Then Kin goads him into taking the offensive, and the result is a Curb-Stomp Battle...for Kinnikuman.
  • After Kinnikuman and Robin Mask's rematch over the Grand Canyon ends and a free-for-all between the Association, Council, and Federation erupts, a powerful presence stops the fighting. It's God Von Elric, former don of the American Choujin world...and he is not happy.
  • The Machineguns' battle against the Most Evil Combo In the Universe, which includes using moves from their opponents in the Choujin Olympics, like Ramenman Camel Clutch and Skyman's Deadly Dive.
    • Before that, their match with the Rugged Brothers. First, they escape from under the lighting rig (which, in Kinkotsuman's usual style, was dropped on them); then Kinnikuman knocks Terryman out to prevent him from revealing his artificial leg... only to wipe out the Rugged Brothers in two moves single-handedly.

21st Choujin Olympics
  • Ramenman vs. Brocken Jr. That is all.
    • The ending also stands out: Ramenman had a few of his bones broken during the fight and despite that condition, a Romero Special was all that took him to win.
  • Kin gets one in his victory against the sumo-wrestling Wolfman who was being heavily promoted by Harabote as "Japan's New Hope". It's even more awesome because Harabote set up the match specifically to be a Sumo match favor Wolfman, meaning that Kin beat him at his own game.
  • Warsman gets a crowner (albeit very brutally), when he defeats Pentagon despite the latter having a clear advantage with the ability to fly.
  • The semifinal between Ramenman and Warsman, which is both this and horrifying in the end.
  • Warsman and Kinnikuman fighting in the final gives two crowners for each fighter; Warsman gets one for making an effort not to use weapons and one for continuing to fight until the very end and Kin gets one for not giving up even after Warsman is revealed to be essentially a fighting computer capable of finding every weakness of his opponent and one for winning via using the Kinniku Buster for the very first time.

The Seven Devil Choujin Arc
  • The entire arc is a CMOA for Kin, since he defeated all of his opponents with some help within the 10 day time period.
  • Terryman's Dark Horse Victory against The Mountain.
    • His speech to Natsuko the night before the match also counts as this, as well as a CMOH.
      "There are times where a man must lay down his life for his friends, and I consider myself proud to have such friends."
  • Mongolman's (who was in turn, Ramenman in disguise) Big Damn Heroes moment, which was defeating Mr Khamen and saving Brocken Jr from the former's "Mummy Package".
  • Mongolman defeating Springman on pure skill and guile.
  • Buffaloman gets one when by reversing the Kinniku Buster with just sheer force.
  • Three words: Neo Kinniku Buster.

The Golden Mask Arc
  • Robin Mask's victory against The Junkman.
  • Despite tying with Ashuraman via some unexplainable lucky breaks, remember that Ashuraman was still having trouble with Terry after those breaks despite the latter having his arms stolen by Ashuraman, meaning that Terry may have won that battle if he was at full strength.
  • Brocken Jr.'s win against The Ninja, despite having the crap kicked out of him for most of the match.
  • Geronimo literally shouting Sunshine to death after having his torso crushed and skewered, having his heart stop, and reaching into his chest and manually restarting it.
  • Kinnikuman's victory against Ashuraman.
  • Buffaloman gets one when he stalls for time for Kin to perfect the Kinniku Driver via fighting Akuma Shogun, who he was terrified of.
  • The Kinniku Driver, in all of its glory.

Dream Choujin Tag Team Arc
  • The picture for this page is probably the most awesome Tag Team technique ever created, Muscle Docking.

Scramble For The Throne Arc
  • One of the 4 teams for the Scramble was in a massive disadvantage, having only 2 members with the leader included. Said leader's True Companions arrive just in time to save the leader's second, who was about to hit the ceiling and die. The judges call them out on this saying they're not supposed to be there as they weren't registered in the leader's team. The leader then reveals he had said friends registered using a special ink that reveals itself when exposed to heat, thereby allowing his friends to take place as members of his team. This leader? None other than Kinnikuman.
  • Meat defeats Mixer Taitei, who had killed Kinnikuman before that, using all the techniques he learned from watching all of Kinnikuman's fights up to this point.
  • The entirety of Soldier's fight against Super Phoenix. It took a lot of outside interference for Soldier to lose. In a clean match, Soldier would have easily won.
  • Kinnikuman's Mastered Muscle Spark, also counts as a CMOH because he knows now that his brother's sacrifice was not in vain.
