    Margarita Empire 

Tropes Associated with the Margarita Empire

Tsuru Tsurulina IV/Lord Smoothie IV/Czar Baldy-Bald IV
Voiced by: Taiki Matsuno (JP), Terrence Stone (EN)


  • Ambiguously Human: Has Pointy Ears and sharp teeth, The Hollywood Cyborg reveal only makes it more complex.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Subverted when push comes to shove, he's quick to run away when he's cornered.
  • Bad Ass Normal: Heavily implied, you gotta respect a guy who's probably as strong as any other human for being able to command over several warriors much stronger than you.
    • Justified: despite being part machine, he immediately rides away once his brother takes over.
  • Bald of Evil: Duh!
  • Batman Gambit: Hopes that the newly awakened Former Margarita Empire would defeat Bobobo for him, but it does not work at all. He later holds a tournament hoping that the enemies will kill each other off, but it forces him to vacate his throne when his Eviler than Thou brother takes over.
  • Big Bad: till Hydrate forces him out of power.
    • Big Bad Wannabe he's merely a puppet figure for Bibibi of the first series.
    • Non-Action Big Bad: Despite being a Hollywood Cyborg, he displays no fighting abilities at all.
      • The fact that he runs ungracefully from his throne once Hydrate takes over only establishes this point.
  • Facial Markings: On his forehead, he has a symbol.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Several, reactivating the Wiggin Block, relying on Giga, reawakening the previous generation of Hair Hunters and finally holding the Emperor Playoffs; the latter epically backfires on him.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His own need to protect his throne is what led to the playoffs in which he loses his title to his brother.
  • Hollywood Cyborg: Turns out to be one, but has none of the fighting power of the Third.
  • Informed Ability: Soften makes Giga's power being equal to the 4th which is rendered mute when Hydrate forces him out of power
  • Manipulative Bastard: He relies on coercing others to do his work for him and ultimately planned to have them kill each other in order to get the throne. It backfires when Hydrate takes the authority away from him.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: He reliance on others to his work for him ultimately cost him his right to the throne.
  • Orcus on His Throne: It's no exaggeration that all of his elite forces plus the previous generation of Hair Hunters were defeated before he actually decided to take matters into his own hands, the method which decided to do so, backfires on him epically.
  • Pointy Ears: Has them along with sharp teeth.
  • Puppet King: Bibibi's statement outright state this, which makes since in hindsight.
  • The Reveal: Downplayed, he is actually a Hollywood Cyborg, but his immediate retreat from power reveals he's not that strong.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Once Hydrate takes over, he ungracefully deserts his title to escape with his life.
  • Smug Snake: His default fallback is that someone to kill his enemies for him, and become angry when they lose. Considering he relied on Dengakuman as his first option didn't help his case.
  • The Unfought: Despite being the Big Bad of the series for several arcs, he flees his empire once Hydrate takes over.

    Four Heavenly Kings of the Margarita Empire 

Gunkan/Captain Battleship
Voiced by: Ryūzaburō Ōtomo (JP), Takashi Nagasako (PS2 game), Paul St Peter (EN)

The First member of the Big 4, he was originally a fellow trainee/rival to Bobobo until he was not chosen to become the next heir. He, through unexplained series of events becomes a member of the Big 4. Despite his power, he wanted to overthrow the empire and become its new leader. He kidnaps Beauty to force Bobobo to fight him, Bobobo wins and reveals that he only wanted to be acknowledged. After that he is flat out ignored for the rest of the story.


Purupu/Kittypoo
Voiced by: Ryūsei Nakao (JP), Liam O Brien (EN)

The second member of the Big 4, a horned cat who rides in a pod that flies around in a pod with two elite henchmen, killing innocent lives if he gets annoyed by them and takes pleasure in it. Remind you of anyone? He finds Bobobo while terrorizing a village and proceeds to say how strong he is and how weak Gunkan was. Then, he gets beaten in one move by Don Patch of all people
  • Expy: Of Freeza. Both normally travel in flying pods, have one effeminate (although in Purupu's case, it's a woman) and one Gonk (in this case, a box of cigarettes/chocolates) henchmen accompanying them, are sadistic and are beaten easily by a character who later gains a Super Mode.
  • Hellish Pupils: Comes out when he's ready to kill
  • Informed Ability: He and his henchman were supposedly stronger than Gunkan but all three were curb stomped by Don Patch of all people, which is further supported by Hatenko and Gasser's indications.
  • Minor Major Character: He's one of theBigBad's top Quirky Mini Boss Squad, but is defeated even easier than most of the named Mooks that had been faced so far.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: If his swift defeat by Don Patch is an indication, then his claim of being Gunkan's superior is extremely exaggerated.
  • Smug Snake: He talks a good game, but seriously lacks the power, his other teammates had. Doubles as Small Name, Big Ego.

OVER/ Torpedo Girl
OVER: Tomokazu Sugita (JP), Liam O Brien (EN)
Torpedo Girl: Hiromi Nishikawa (JP), Melodee Spevack (EN)

The third member of the Big 4, he commands an army of NINJA and being the most extremely dedicated to cutting hair. He punishes Battleship and Kittypoo for their failures by cutting off their hair. Then challenges Bobobo to fight him, with the latter eventually getting the better of him. That is until he transforms into a torpedo....girl?!! He/She proceeds to beat the crap of him until he defeats him/her with an ultimate technique. He attempts a hostage situation with Suzu, only to be curb stomped by Bobobo again. He returns as Torpedo Girl to help the main cast, until she becomes Over again against the Third, only a short time later to remain as Torpedo Girl until the end of the series.


Halekulani
Voiced by: Shinichiro Miki (JP), Joe Cappelletti (EN)

The final and strongest of the Big 4, he left the empire for unknown reasons; only to come back conveniently come back as soon as the other three were defeated. He waits for Bobobo to come after him, only to beaten a little more easily than Over. He eventually helps Bobobo against the Shadow Empire, never to appear again afterwards until the end of the series.


    Hair Hunt 

Tropes Associated With The Hair Hunt

Teru
Voiced by: Masaya Onosaka (JP)

  • Minor Major Character: He's the head commander of the commanders, supposedly stronger than Jiggler, but never appears after the first chapter/episode.
  • Momma's Boy: He still lives with his mother, much to his lower officers' surprise
  • The Un Fought: Bobobo never fights or meets him, going instead straight for the Big 4 after Jelly Jiggler's defeat

Katsu
Voiced By: Richard Cansino (EN)
  • Bald of Evil: He is a hair hunter after all, one with an obsession with trophies.
  • Bald of Awesome: Practically, the only bald one that is Bad Ass other than the 4th.
  • The Dragon: To Jiggler before he became apart of the main cast.
    • The Star Scream: has no problem trying to kill his boss in the Playoffs.
      • Curb-Stomp Battle : surprisingly from Jiggler who at this point was merely a joke to this point.
