     Monster Elimination 

Kinkotsuman (Skullduggery in US)

Voiced by: Issei Futamata (original series & movies), Hideyuki Hori (Nisei)
  • Abusive Parent: Played depressingly straight. In Nisei, it was revealed that whenever Kinkotsuman wasn't watching the Justice Choujin fight again the villains of the arc, he was venting his frustrations at his failures on his son, Bone Cold (who was very timid at this time). Said way to vent was to put Bone Cold through harsh training, which caused much resentment towards him.
    • Be Careful What You Wish For: The training ensured that Bone Cold became a lethally competent fighter, a sadistic assassin in the underground and he hated Kinkotsuman with every fibre of his being. It also made him one of the most, if not most viciously effective Hero Killer choujin in the series, which caused arguably the biggest tragedy to the Muscle League at the point
      • The Atoner: He feels very guilty of what he did and tries to make amends, but Bone tells him it's a little late to do that.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: You'd have to be pretty weak to have to rely on guns and giant monsters instead of using wrestling moves in this universe. Despite being a Arch-Nemesis to Suguru, he's no where in the same league as most of the villains, let alone Big Bads like Akuma Shogun and Super Phoenix.
  • Camp Straight: Acts very flamboyant, but he had a wife and son the latter became a ruthless assassin and effective Hero Killer in his own right due to his abuse
  • Dem Bones: To Kinnikuman's muscles.
  • Evil Counterpart: As much as a villain as Kinnikuman was a hero.
  • Evil Laugh: —> Mu-hyo-hyo-hyo-hyo!~
  • Facial Markings: Has the kanji 骨 (kotsu), meaning "bone," on his forehead.
  • Finishing Move: He had none in the actual series, but in the video games he had the Shooting Lucky Strike, which was just to simply shoot the opponent with a blade, much like his son's finisher.
  • Harmless Villain: As the Cerebus Syndrome hit, he became less and less intimidating; becoming a Sitcom Arch-Nemesis to Kinnikuman and eventually fading into the background
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain - Kinkotsuman and Iwao are complete losers, plain and simple. Before the Cerebus Syndrome however, they somewhat subverted the trope because Kinnikuman was just as big a loser.
  • Mad Scientist: Has created a plethora of gadgets to use against Kinnikuman, as well as the Black Shadow robot.
  • Meaningful Name: "Kinkotsu" means "bone and sinew," or, roughly, "skin and bones," the opposite of kinniku.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: His abuse of his son, which later made him into the galaxy's best assassin has done more harm to Muscle League than anything he's done himself
  • Secretly Royalty: It's easy to forget that he's a prince just like Kinnikuman.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: After going some serious Villain Decay, he mainly foils any attempt of Kinnikuman's schemes to succeed, but nothing too major
  • Villain Decay / Villain Forgot to Level Grind: started out fairly menacing, but as Kinnikuman and the series got more serious, he, well, didn't.
  • White Hair, Black Heart

Iwao

Voiced by: Masaharu Sato (original series)

     American World Dream Choujin Tournament 

Skull Bozu

Voiced by: Masaharu Sato (original series)
  • Bald of Evil
  • The Dragon: Technically, he works for Sheik Seijin. Actually, he's the main villain of the American Tour arc.
  • Evil Genius: He relied more on scheming and dirty tricks to bring down his enemies in the American Tour arc.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Implied. He pretty much was never heard of after the American Tournament arc, but by his next appearance, he shows up among all the other Idol Choujin all the way to the Scramble for the Kinniku Throne arc when they gather to cheer for Kinnikuman on his fight against Super Phoenix.
  • If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten - In the American Tournament arc, the World Choujin Federation suspect African-American southerner "Channelman" (Kinnikuman in disguise in order to infiltrate their organization) of being Kinnikuman, Skull Bozu put out a picture of Mayumi for him to stomp, as part of a test to prove that he was not. This is subverted because "Channelman"...gladly stomps on the photo, to which Meat silently remarks that this sort of test is easy for Kinnikuman, who has the least respect for his father.
    • This is played straight when his partner Devil Magician does to join him, He must bring in the severed head of a heroic Choujin. Two of the applicants try to fake it and are kicked out, while he passes by bringing the head of a rival company's former champion.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Even his boss is frightened at Skull's plans.
  • Spikesof Villainy: Can grow spikes all over his body, except his head.
  • Tattooed Crook: He has them all over his body

Sheik Seijin

Devil Magician

Voiced by: Masaharu Sato (original series)

     Seven Devil Choujin 
On the back from left to right: Buffaloman, Black Hole, The Mountain; the front from left to right: Springman, Stecase King, Atlantis and Mr. Khamen

Stecase King

Voiced by: Issei Futamata (original series)
  • Ditto Fighter: His fighting style involves using tapes of recorded fighting moves of choujin in order to perfectly imitating their fighting styles
  • Finishing Move: Thanks to being a Ditto Fighter he can use the finishing move of anyone he's taped. His own finishers are Hell's Symphony and Symphony of the Devil. He created the latter on the spot in his fight against Kinnikuman, after he realized that Kin's mask acted as a sound barrier.
  • Image Song/Leitmotif: "Marui Kasetto Dai Henshin".
  • It Is Pronounced Tro PAY: His name is a portmanteau of stereo and cassette, so use those words as a pronunciation guide. Alternatively, one could think of his name as Stécasé.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Ultimately loses his fight when he uses a tape of Kinnikuman...from three years prior, mainly, his Hero with Bad Publicity days.
    • Seven years later, he suffers from the same, for different reasons: He ends up using Warsman's Palo Special on Turboman, which lets him activate Earth Unit and transfer the damage to him, eventually killing him.
  • Loud of War: His own finishers are definitely this.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: He was the weakest of the Devil Choujin but he still gave Kinnikuman a run for his money.

Black Hole

Voiced by: Daisuke Gōri, Kazuhiko Kishino note  (original series)
  • Combat Pragmatist: He pokes Jack Tea's eyes, and kicks his groin immediately after. Buffaloman and Springman justify his actions, being true to the nature of a Devil Choujin.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: In his fight, he knew better than to go easy on Kinnikuman because he's winning, due to being an avid reader of the manga. For a non-Fourth Wall Breaking example in that same fight, he convinced Kinnikuman that he had given him an advantage by making sure that the ring was surrounded by a solar panel. In reality, it was Black Hole who had the advantage because the light from the sun would allow him to manipulate the shadows formed.
    • In his fight against Dalmatiman, he beats him by baiting him into his finisher using a bone-shaped dent he made on his own back.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin:
    "So why do have a hole in my face?
    Read my name, Black Hole!"
  • The Faceless: Literally has no face.
  • Finishing Move: Four Dimension Kill
  • Gravity Sucks: His name is Black Hole''.
  • Humanoid Abomination: The guy can create black holes.
  • Image Song/Leitmotif: "Bermuda Mystery"
  • Living Shadow: Becomes this during his fight against Kinnikuman.
  • Squishy Wizard: Sort of. The guy can create black holes and manipulate shadows, but an elbow drop was all Kinnikuman needed to defeat him.
  • Tag Team: 4-D Killer Combo (with Pentagon)
  • What Could Have Been: He was supposed to have been the leader of the Seven Devils.

Mr. Khamen

Voiced by: Ryōichi Tanaka (original series)
  • Evil Genius: He's the man that the other Devil Choujin go to to confirm the probability of victory, also he nearly kills Brocken Jr with his cunning
  • Finishing Move: "Mummy Package", probably the most disturbing finisher in the whole series.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Takes a bite out of Brocken Jr's shoulder, and later tries to suck out his innards.
  • Image Song/Leitmotif: "Farao no Noroi" ("The Pharaoh's Curse")
  • Mask of Power
  • Seers: Serves as this for the Seven Devil Choujin, as he predicts how the group would defeat Kinnikuman. However,it also predicts that five others would protect him.

The Mountain

Voiced by: Yonehiko Kitagawa (original series)
  • Boring Yet Practical: The 2012 sequel shows Mountain doing Judo moves.
  • Disney Villain Death: Tries to take Terryman and Strong The Budo with him when he dies, making the ring collapse.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: He's a mountain peak with arms and legs.
  • Finishing Move: "Mountain Drop", which is...just a body slam. But hey, who needs flashiness when you're literally a mountain?
  • Image Song/Leitmotif: "Jigoku no Sanmyaku" ("Mountains from Hell")
  • Mighty Glacier: Well, with a name like The Mountain, what did you expect?
  • It Only Works Once: Invokes this when Brocken Jr and Geronimo try to use Mongolman's spirit world door to help the Muscle Bros. fight the Devil Choujin spirits Sunshine and Ashuraman summon, similar to what happened during the Kinnikuman-Atlantis match. Mountain kicks them both out.
  • Taken for Granite
  • Spell My Name with an S: While it's romanized as "The Mountain", the name's actually written in Kanji, reading Ma Un Ten (which is the Japanese spelling for "Mountain")

Atlantis

Voiced by: Kazuhiko Kishino (original series)
  • Finishing Move: Atlantis Driver, Tower Bridge
  • Hero Killer: Look at the image, he killed Robin Mask at the end of their fight
  • High-Pressure Blood: His "Mount St. Helen's Eruption". It involves grabbing the opponent and drawing all the blood out of them from their wounds, in a way similar to how Mount St. Helens erupts.
  • Making a Splash: He can control water, no matter what form it's in. He's basically the original Waterbender.

Springman

Voiced by: Hideyuki Tanaka (original series)

Buffaloman

Voiced by: Masaharu Sato (original series), Kenji Nomura (Nisei)

     Golden Mask 

Tropes Associated With Six Devil Knights

Sneagator (Shocodile in US)

Voiced by: Issei Futamata (original series)
  • Generation Xerox: Played with. His son, Sneagator Jr., looks just like his humanoid reptile form, but was weak and sickly. His grandson, MAXman (The Pumpinator), looks pretty much like a normal human and only turns into a shoe.
Healing Factor: in his true form, he can regenerate his limbs.
  • Meaningful Name: Yes, he is a sneaker-alligator hybrid. Who wears sneakers. And can transform into one.
  • One-Winged Angel: His true form as a T-Rex foot counts as this.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: he is a reptile choujin and fights as brutally as one as he resorts to chomping and shredding Kinnikuman in his crocodile and frilled lizard forms respectively
  • Scaled Up: He can turn into a chameleon, snake, frilled lizard, turtle and a crocodile in order to fight kinnikuman.
  • Taking You with Me: Tries to do this after Kinnikuman kills him. He succeeds, but it's eventually all for naught thanks to Wolfman's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: He can turn into any type of reptile
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: He's the weakest of the group, but puts Kinnikuman through more trouble than Buffaloman and establishes the threat level of the Devil Knights

Planetman

Voiced by: Hideyuki Tanaka (original series)

Junkman

Voiced by: Kazuhiko Kishino (original series)

The Ninja (Ninja Ned in US)

Voiced by: Masashi Hirose (original series), Hiroaki Hirata (Nisei)

Sunshine

Voiced by: Masaharu Sato (original series & Nisei), Michael Alston Baley (English dub)

Ashuraman (Shivano in US)

Voiced by: Daisuke Gōri (original series)
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Had a standard skin tone in the anime.
  • Animal Motif: Akuma Shogun compares Ashuraman to a spider, considering his fight with kinnikuman takes place on a web made of water; this isn't too far-fetched.
  • Appendage Assimilation: Can use the limbs of Choujin he killed as replacements for any he's lost.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: He's the son of the demon world's royal family.
  • The Atoner: He later becomes this in order to make for the murder of his son after being by Mantaro.
  • Blow You Away: he can make tornadoes with his body by swiping his arms.
  • Cosmic Play Thing: The universe seems to want him to suffer, he's got a crappy childhood, lost his best friend when he went on a Heel-Face Turn, forced to fight his teacher and in Kinnikuman Nisei, he's not even allowed his own happiness as he loses his wife to his son, who he is forced to kill in order to prevent him going a rampage
  • Despair Event Horizon: His killing of his son was the last straw, and went back to being evil again
  • Evil Counterpart: He seemed to be this for Kinnikuman in a way (both were princes representing their respective factions) right down to having his own version of Kinnikuman's then signature move (albeit one that was harder to escape because he also grabbed the opponent's arms and thighs as well as the calves).
  • Evil Laugh/Signature Laugh: Ka~ ka ka ka ka!
  • Finishing Move: All variations of the Ashura Buster and the Izuna Drop.
  • Heel-Face Turn: He does this during the Throne Arc, it soon becomes one of the most tragic deconstructions of this trope ever
  • An Ice Person: by combining water particles with ash, he can make ice and a blizzard during his match with Kinnikuman.
  • Image Song/Leitmotif: "Ashura no Jigoku" ("Ashura Hell")
  • Making a Splash: makes a web of water for match with Kinnikuman, and shoots out a streams of water to grab the ring, in order to prevent him from falling.
  • Mask Power: Has three masks—Laughing, his default; Cold-Blooded, which seems to enable him to manipulate wind; and Enraged, which makes him incredibly brutal.
  • Multiarmed And Dangerous: Due to his six arms, he's got more grappling power than a regular choujin
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: His Heel-Face Turn leads him to abandon his only friend and forcing him to kill his own son in order to protect the world from his growing sociopathic nature
  • Serial Escalation: The Ashura Buster is an improved version of the Kinniku Buster wherein Ashuraman also holds on to the opponent's arms and thighs as well as the calves, and there are further improvements on this move. There is one variation in which he holds the opponent's arms, legs, and head (instead of arms, legs, and thighs), and one in which he does the normal Ashura Buster but also holds on to the opponent's neck (which is the weak link in even the normal Ashura Buster, let alone the Kinniku Buster). Another version is his Izuna Otoshi—he has a normal version (representing an "8"), and an enhanced version in which he renders it horizontal, slamming into a wall (representing an infinity symbol).
  • Tag Team: Stray Devil Choujin Combo (with Sunshine)
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Sunshine
  • Trauma Conga Line: Firstly, his Abusive Parents forced into his mind that friendship was meaningless to make him into a lethal killing machine, his Heel-Face Turn involves him abandoning his one and only friend Sunshine, he's forced to fight his teacher and that's not even getting into Kinnikuman Nisei where he's forced to kill his own son who was becoming a sociopath after the latter killed his wife
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: It's a shame that he had to be raised by parents like his...
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: The sheer crap he's gone throughout the series makes you want to feel sorry for him
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Seriously, after his Heel-Face Turn, he immediately has his faces torn off, the teacher who taught him about morality and decency- has to fight him since he's on the Big Bad's Quirky Mini Boss Squad, his own family nah, your son turns into a sociopath who kills your wife after seeing your hidden room of your past; leading you to kill him, your best friend, you're good now and since he doesn't believe in becoming a Justice Choujin, you have to break your friendship. The only good thing that came out of his misery is that he's friendships with Sunshine again

Akuma Shogun (Rogue Shogun in US)

Voiced by: Yonehiko Kitagawa (original series)

  • Achilles' Heel: His head is the only body part that can feel pain.
  • All Your Powers Combined: His body is made up of the rest of the Devil Knights. When he first appears, he claims to have Sunshine's power, Planetman's speed, The Ninja's technique, Sneagator's body, and Junkman's cruelty.
  • Badass: Going into Too Powerful to Live categories, he's the most difficult opponent that Kinnikuman had faced up to that point, a leg drop from his leg hospitalized Kinnikuman for nearly a year after the fight. And even after defeating him, he is terrified of him
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: To All Devil Choujin
  • Big Bad: Of the Golden Mask Arc
  • Boss Subtitles: "Perfect First"
  • Blondes are Evil: Has long blonde hair under his mask

  • Deal with the Devil: As Goldman, he made one with Satan to become Akuma Shogun
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: His Villainous Breakdown involves not understanding The Power of Friendship, thus leading to his defeat
  • Finishing Move: Hell's Guillotine
  • Five Moves of Doom: He ups the ante with a nine-part finisher designed to sequentially seal every point of Choujin power—the next to last part rendering the victim unable to move and the final part killing him.
  • Healing Factor: even if he is shattered into pieces, he can easily resemble himself.
  • Image Song/Leitmotif: "King of Devil"
  • Invincible Villain: He's Made Of Diamond, has a Healing Factor to regenerate himself, does not feel pain and is a literal Physical God, in fact most of the fight was very one-sided on his favor and only a Big Damn Heroes moment from Buffaloman of all people made Kinnikuman be able to get an advantage over him.
  • Jerk Ass: he kills Ashuraman just for losing even though he defeated a move that could potentially harm him, has the choujins in the life capsules support the ring just so that he crush them along with Kinnikuman and using the powers of Satan to kill his own brother
  • Lack of Empathy: his response to Ashuraman's defeat even though he had defeated the Kinniku Buster, was to cut off his head and say that he didn't like that he lost in the first place.
  • Large and in Charge: He's the second largest below Sunshine in the group
  • Made Of Air: he has no real body and thus can have attacks phase through him.
  • Made Of Diamond: he's able to shift his body's hardness from silver to copper to iron to opal to emerald to sapphire and finally to diamond, which has the highest level of defense.
  • Made Of Rubber: due to being a soft bodied choujin, he's able to slip through the tiniest spaces and be extremely flexible
  • Mask of Power: Wears a horned shiny one over his true face at Goldman
  • Malevolent Masked Man
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Kinnikuman goes through hell trying to damage him.
    • He uses at least seven out of the nine forms of the trope in the fight with Kinnikuman.
  • One-Man Army: Literally as his body is made from the parts of the Six Devil Knights
  • Physical God - Akuma Shogun is Goldman, the Choujin god of war who made a Deal with the Devil for which he received the Devil Knights as his literal and figurative body.
  • Smug Super: He holds himself as a god because he really is one, and believes that Kinnikuman is way too inferior to him
  • Tin Tyrant
  • Villainous Breakdown: Kinnikuman's continuing determination and The Power of Friendship shatter his confidence, making it easier to defeat him

     Tag Tournament 

Perfect Choujin

  • Above Good and Evil: They at least believe they're above all the battle of good and evil, but they're arguably worse than both Brutal and Devil Choujin in their treatment of others
    • Subverted in that Big Budo is just the Token Evil Teammate of the group who influenced other liked minded individuals to follow suit
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Along with the remaining Devil Choujins who are more of The Heavy as their actions shape up the Tag Tournament Arc, these guys serve as an additional Five-Bad Band group for the Justice Choujin to fight.
  • Hypocrite: Despite describing perfect in every way, they use weapons when cornered and other dirty tactics
  • Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty: Big the Budo's group isn't above ambushing their opponents and other dirty tactics to win a fight

Screw Kid

Voiced by: Kaneto Shiozawa (original series)
  • Finishing Move: Four Point Screw Torture, Jigoku no Nejimawashi/Hell's Screwdriver is his Tag finisher with Kendaman.
  • Image Song/Leitmotif: "Kyoufu no Kaiten Drill" ("The Dreaded Spinning Drill")
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: His basic style. Kendaman adds his weight for increased pain.
  • This Is a Drill: This is his entire "thing": even his Image Song revolves around this.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He gets scared shitless once he and Kendaman lose to Mongolman and Buffaloman, due to the fact that losing a match as a Perfect Choujin is equivalent to the death penalty.

Kendaman (Mace in US)

Voiced by: Masashi Hirose (original series)

Neptuneman

Big The Budo (Big Budo in US)/ Neptune King

Voiced by: Kazuhiko Kishino (original series)

     Survival Match For The Kinniku Throne 

Five Fated Princes

Kinnikuman Mariposa

Kinnikuman Big Body

  • Adaptation Expansion: His fight with Super Phoenix was much less one sided in the anime
    • Adaptational Badass: He actually puts up an amazing fight against Super Phoenix before he went down, and some of his appearances in games give him a rather impressive display of moves. In Muscle Fight, for example, he has his two supers from Muscle Grand Prix 2, as well as a version of the Muscle Inferno (in which he rockets into the ringpost with his opponent on his back, but somehow his opponent takes the damage) and two versions of the Muscle Revenger (one like the version Mariposa tried to do, and one like the one Super Phoenix ultimately does, albeit upside down in its own way—he stands on the ceiling, headbutts his opponent into the canvas, and does it almost like the Muscle Spark).
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: In his group, as well as being the strongest of the Five Princes
  • Brains: Evil; Brawn: Good: He's the Brawn to Super Phoenix's Brains, by being the Token Good Teammate of the Five Fated Princes
  • Cool Mask: Arguably the coolest looking mask after Soldier's
  • The Brute: The biggest and easiest of the Five Fated Princes to be taken down
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Super Phoenix beat him and his team in about 15 minutes.
  • Finishing Move: Dragon Sleeper Backbreaker, Muscle Impact, Giant Swing, Maple Leaf Clutch and Big Body Tackle
  • Forced Into Evil: He really was! By his own admission, the Evil Gods forced him into entering as a candidate for the throne against his will
  • Friend to All Children: Was seen being admired by children before being turned into a candidate for the throne
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He was an outdoorsman before becoming a candidate for the throne
  • Gentle Giant: Implied to be this outside of battle
  • Informed Ability: In the anime, he's implied to be the strongest of the Five Princes
  • Large and in Charge: The biggest of the Five Princes and the strongest of his group
  • Killed Off for Real: By Super Phoenix
  • Shoulders of Doom: Has shoulders pads as big as he is
  • Super Strength: He was blessed by the Evil God of Strength so it's expected.
  • Token Good Teammate: he's the only one of the Five Fated Princes who didn't want to usurp Kinnikuman's throne.
  • The Worf Effect: Loses to Super Phoenix just to show how strong he was

Kinnikuman Zebra

  • Animal Motif: Kinnkuman Zebra hmm I wonder what it could be?
  • Combat Pragmatist: Once he dons black, he hides metal in his mask and hands to boost his lethalness
  • Dark Is Evil: When donning the black as his main color, he becomes a brutal fighter
  • The Dark Side Will Make You Forget: His choosing involved killing his best friend, leading him to become a greedy person
  • Deal with the Devil: What his chose for candidacy by killing his best friend amounted to
  • Doppelgänger Spin: He does this in his fight with Kinnikuman
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Thanks to his past, he's utterly convinced that money is the key to power and friendship, and is utterly confounded when Kinnikuman's teammates turn down a bribe to switch sides
  • Extremity Extremist: Averted. Despite specializing in boxing, he does have more attacks than punches.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Acts like a pretty nice and honorable fighter until Parthenon restores his true brutal nature
  • Finishing Move: Muscle Inferno, Saint Muscle Punch
  • Friend or Idol Decision: Was told that he could enter the Choujin world if he killed his childhood friend (and only friend), Zebra Kid.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Kinnikuman makes him get hit by his own Mephisto Punch
  • If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten: The Evil God of Technique asked him to kill his best friend in order to become a candidate for the throne
  • Jerk Ass: Not nearly as much as Super Phoenix, but spends most of the throne match insulting the Kinniku team for their poor performance
  • Let's Get Dangerous: Even before his dark side comes out, he didn't take Suguru seriously before, but winds up showing that he's not just a boxer with a fairly impressive combination of holds.
  • Money, Dear Boy: He even paid his teammates to fight for him.
  • My Greatest Failure: After his defeat, he learns that Zebra Kid could have easily escaped the Muscle Inferno, but intentionally let himself get killed so that his best friend could live a better life. Kinnikuman Zebra's last words before fainting were begging Kid to forgive him
  • The Power of Hate: Relies on it to win
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In the anime
  • Split Personality: His personality is divided into white {Justice} and black {Evil} and needs Parthenon to activate it
  • Super-Powered Evil Side:When his stripes invert, he becomes a brutal fight

Kinnikuman Soldier

  • Cool Mask
  • The Infiltration: Ataru takes him down in order to take on his identity
  • Killed Offscreen: Subverted. Ataru injured him offscreen, but he died during the Super Phoenix - Soldier match
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The real one was defeated by Ataru who assumed his identity before we got to know him at all

Kinnikuman Super Phoenix

  • Bad Boss: Goes above and beyond every other villain in this regard, as he intentionally let his teammates be erased from existence just to make his fight with Kinnikuman more interesting.
  • Big Bad: The last one before the 2012 reboot
  • Brains: Evil; Brawn: Good: The Brains to Suguru's Brawn
  • The Chessmaster: He uses his team like pieces on a board, and manipulates the situation orderly
  • Combat Pragmatist: Uses an anti gravity device to give him an edge over Soldier as well as hiding the capabilities of his other men in order to gain a strategic advantage
  • Driven by Envy: While the other candidates had their own reasons to fight, Super Phoenix wants to be king because he really resents Suguru for being pampered even though Suguru was actually raised in just in poor conditions as he was literally dumped onto Earth by his father mistaking him for a pig.
  • Evil Counterpart: More so than any of the other five princes to Suguru being much smarter and more skiled than he is
  • Evil Genius: Unlike Kinkotsuman, he's much more competent
  • Facial Markings
  • Fan Nickname: Super Douchebag.
  • Finishing Move: Raging Ox and Muscle Revenger. Also Zebra's Muscle Inferno thanks to the God Of Technique giving him power.
  • Half Truth: He said he'd fight Kinnikuman Soldier in 6 tag match, he didn't say anything but his anti gravity device to make it into a 3 single match
  • Incurable Cough of Death: Towards the end of the series, he develops this. It turns out that it's the result of a congenital heart problem.
  • Jerk Ass: An even bigger one than Neptuneman if that were possible. He worked pretty hard to get his Fan Nickname. First he shows off in his match against Big Body by telling Mammothman to mess up on purpose and double KO Cannonballer so he can curbstomp Big Body himself, then he tries to kill both Kinnikuman and Kinnikuman Soldier in one go by using the collapsing ring, starts burning the pages of the Muscle Prophecy that were related to Ataru, then he Insults Ataru for running away from home after killing him, starts burning the pages of the Muscle Prophecy regarding the roles of members in Kinnikuman's team and his own team, breaking speeches Kinnikuman that he doesn't deserve to be the heir to the throne or have a nice girlfriend like Bibinba because he's not smart like he is and ultimately tries to kill Kin by using the Muscle Revenger on one of the iron posts supporting the ring. Oh and he kissed Bibinba in front of Suguru just to piss him off
  • Manipulative Bastard: Kinnikuman Super Phoenix who is also the avatar of God of Intelligence
  • Mind-Control Eyes: Phoenix Madness Wave.
  • Noble Demon: In a rare moment of nobility, he stalls the out of ring 20-count in order for Kin to save Bibinba.
  • The Resenter: Really hates Suguru for having a life of luxury while he suffered
  • Sacred First Kiss: Like Dio, he does this to Bibimba in front of Suguru just to piss him off.
  • Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty: He ridged the armor match to his favor and had Team Kinnikuman be killed in a maze trap so he wouldn't face them
  • Turns Red: A variation in which he actually turns purple once he absorbs the other Evil Choujin Gods
  • Villainous Breakdown: In the anime, his mother shows up ringside in the final to convince him to stop fighting because she's 100% sure that he's not the heir, said that the only reason he could use the face flash is because she bathed him in the royal baths of the Kinniku clan and finally says that she only told him about the hospital mix-up in order to cheer him up because he was so depressed about being poor. He handles it as well as you'd expect him to handle it.
  • Unwitting Pawn - Super Phoenix to the Evil Choujin Gods.

Mariposa's Quirky Mini Boss Squad

Hawkman

Mr. VTR

Mixer Taite

  • Defeating the Undefeatable: He's the second person to defeat Kinnikuman, but his victory is undercut by the fact that the Five Evil Gods helped him remove Kinnikuman's Burning Inner Strength, and Mr. VTR had to alter reality to get him out of a Kinniku Driver.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: He's a living mixer man
  • Facial Markings: Has them on his face
  • Glass Cannon: His ability to separate powers is powerful, but he is really fragile, leading to an east victory for Meat of all people
  • Kick the Dog - Mixer Taitei actually puts a puppy into his blender, separating the skeleton from the rest of the body, before fighting Kinnikuman. It's so pointlessly heinousnote  that even his captain, Kinnikuman Mariposa is confused by it.
    Mariposa: What are you doing...?
  • Smug Snake: Is far too confident in defeating Kinnikuman, and took Meat very lightly leading to both easily dominating him, resulting in the Evil Gods and his own teammate to alter reality to make sure he'd win

Omegaman

  • Cape Killer: Hunts down choujins who are supposed to be dead
  • Cry for the Devil: While he did enjoy his job a wee bit too much, almost everyone showed him a massive amount of pity when his prophecy page was burnt and he could only lie on the canvas praying.
  • Cool Mask: A very creepy one that has a claw holding it
    • Mask of Power: It can destroy the organization of an object by hitting the object in front of his eyes with a certain light, and harvests it into his mask and in the next instant it transforms his body into the exact form of the object that had been harvested by the mask.
  • Grim Reaper: Essentially he's a messenger of death sent to get back those who have died to return them back to their graves
  • Gone Horribly Right: He channels Kamehame's ghost in order to defeat Kinnikuman's techniques, which Kamehame taught. However, he doesn't count on the channeling working too well...and helps Kinnikuman by teaching him his 52 submissions.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His shapeshifting technique gets used against him, Kamehame decides to override him and teach Suguru the final techniques he needed to learn to beat Super Phoenix
  • Power Copying: He can transform into any dead Choujin
  • Punch Clock Villain: Omegaman is a Choujin bounty hunter employed by the Choujin Enmanote  He only joined the Throne Conflict because he was ordered by his boss to kill the illegally revived Neptuneman. His reason for joining Super Phoenix's team was that he was also ordered by his boss to kill Kinnikuman and co. because Warsman escaped the afterlife.
  • Psycho for Hire: Neptuneman noted him as a ruthless and professional assassin before he served Super Phoenix
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: By capturing the image of what his mask sees, he can transform traits of his body into what he has seen

Strong The Budo/ Big The Budo/Neptune King

  • Bad Boss: To his former subordinate, Neptuneman and later Max Radial when he lost to Terryman
  • Boss Subtitles: "Perfect Warrior"
  • Brought Down to Normal: Weaponized he does this to Benkiman, Curry Cook, Tileman and others to show off his power
  • Captain Ersatz/Expy: Subverted Big the Budo, and therefore Neptune King
  • Disney Villain Death: via Taking You with Me by The Mountain
  • Fat Bastard: Has become even more of one than when he was Big the Budo
  • Recurring Boss: He's Big the Budo who took a major level in badass, becoming more threatening than he was before; then he's the third most recurring villain after Kinkotsuman and the remaining Devil Knight duo.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Big the Budo, and therefore Neptune King, has come a long way going from taking choujin masks to their actual power and becoming a more powerful threat on his own.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Big the Budo, and Neptune King by default while still an unredeemable villain, back when he was Neptuneman's partner, he merely wanted to take over choujin's masks for his followers execute his failed minions with his partner, Neptuneman's combo move, concocted elaborate trips to his advantage, and petty tricks. At the moment, he's robbed choujins of their power, has his failed minions impale themselves by his bamboo sword and punched in Geronimo's mouth. He's definitely has become an even stronger thanks to a power boost from the Choujin gods
  • Walking Spoiler: Since he's Big the Budo
  • You Have Failed Me: To Max Radial

Nemesis

     Perfect Origin 
  • Evil Versus Evil: They're going up against the Devil Knights.
  • MacGuffin: Their dumbbells. The Knights need them for some unknown purpose.
  • Physical God: All of them. They were once allies of Goldman's after all.

Mirageman

Abyssman

  • Boss Subtitles: Perfect Fourth.
  • My Greatest Failure: Goldman scarring him on his back during their training, making it look like he broke the Perfect Choujin's rule of never showing your back to your enemy.
  • Luckily My Shield Will Protect Me: His ability is Abyss Guardian, a shield that prevents him from being attacked in the back and throws the attacker back, therefore hurting them instead.

Painman

  • Ambiguously Gay: Along with his tsundere nature towards Goldman, he starts taking a shine to Junkman during their fight, congratulates him when Junkman bursts the airbag over his heart then willingly gives up his own dumbbell to Junkman after being defeated (compared to Mirageman and Abyssman who had to have their own dumbbells removed after they died).
  • Boss Subtitles: Perfect Fifth.
  • Made Of Rubber: Air bags actually.
  • Tsundere: Complains non stop about Goldman who he considered his rival during their training days, then turns around and says he misses their arguments and enjoyed them.

Ganman

  • Boss Subtitles: Perfect Seventh.
  • Jerkass: Amazingly so, even when compared to other Perfect Choujin. He was against inferior Choujin joining the Perfects and wanted to purge them from the moment they were discovered. Later on he turns his Cyclops ability onto the humans spectating their match, something that even disgusts Sneagator.
  • Seer: His Cyclops ability gives allows him to see future events, as well as anticipate the movements of his opponent.

Psychoman (see Grim Reaper)
