!!Jesse/Jessie Maivia
* {{Bishonen}}
* CripplingOverspecialization: He can reverse any move with ease. Pulling off his own moves...not so much. [[spoiler:In fact, it lead to his defeat when Maivia attempts to go on the offensive against Kinnikuman.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of "High Chief" Peter Maivia (Grandfather of [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]])

* BoringYetPractical: In his special side story, he's implied to have been a more simplistic wrestler in the past (more specifically, the 21st Choujin Olympics qualifier in Peru), which wasn't too exciting for the audience.

* DemotedToExtra: Despite being a Choujin Tournament finalist, he fades into the background as the series moves on.
* DyingAsYourself: [[spoiler: His Mala gets shattered after his loss to Mariquitaman. Since his Mala is a symbol of his hatred, Curry Cook gets a chance to have a friendly conversation with Kinnikuman before passing on.]]
* FinishingMove: Charkha Sting
* FreudianExcuse: He is a Brutal Choujin because in India before the series, [[spoiler:he defended the townspeople from a villainous Choujin Cambridgeman who has been terrorizing the people including the woman he loves. Curry Cook manages to defeat him but killed him brutally, causing him to not be praised for saving them but instead be ''feared'' by even the woman he loves. Curry realises what he has done and leaves town, going down the path as the Brutal Choujin.]]

* TookALevelInJerkass: He was Justice Choujin with a mild temper in the 2nd Choujin Tournament arc, but by the Tag Tournament arc, he's resorting to underhanded moves and mocking Kinnikuman's loss when Kinnikuman Great was temporally sucked into Black Hole's void.

* TookALevelInBadass: Teapackman coming off from his defeat against Warsman, actually improved his body along with neck and is able to go against one of the [[spoiler:True Devil Choujin.]]
* TheWorfEffect: To Warsman in their match at the 2nd Choujin Tournament Arc to show how the latter is brutal by getting impaled and then had his head ripoff.

* OneOfTheGuys: Showers with the wrestlers in her fed; none of them even blink.

* {{Expy}}: Of [[Wrestling/VonErichFamily Fritz Von Erich]]

!!Jean/John Steamboardc
* BlindIdiotTranslation[=/=]GratuitousEnglish: His name in Japanese is spelled ジャンヌ (''Jannu''). This makes no sense, since Jean or John can be spelled with ジャン (''Jan''). It's possible his name was supposed to be Johnny Steamboard (which better fits the Ricky Steamboat [[ShoutOut reference]]), in which case his name should have been spelled ジャンニ (''Janni'').
* {{Expy}}: Of Wrestling/RickySteamboat

!! Recurring Characters

!!Kazuo "Aderans" Nakano/[[DubNameChange "Doc" Nakano]]

** TheBusCameBack: In ''Nisei'', we meet an OlderAndWiser Mari who is also the adoptive mother of Rinko, Mantarou's love interest.

* SatelliteLoveInterest: Kinnikuman was interested in her, but she lack a lot of characteristics other than being nice, so Bibimba, a [[ThePollyanna more upbeat girl]] was brought into the story

->Voiced by: Creator/HiromiTsuru
