Characters: Michinoku Pro Wrestling
As this is a professional wrestling character page, certain tropes (such as Heel-Face Turn, Face-Heel Turn, Cool Mask, Underwear of Power, etc...) can be considered universal and do not need to be listed for each wrestler.

    Michinoku Seikigun 

Jinsei Shinzaki

  • Badass Grandpa: The oldest in the roster along Último Dragón.
  • Bald of Awesome
  • Bash Brothers: With Hayabusa outside of Michinoku Pro.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: A notorious one in terms of wrestling style. He can do high-flying feats with ease, but his usual style is lazy and slow-paced, doing as few moves as possible and relying on his gimmick and signature spots.
  • Cool vs. Awesome: His matches as Hakushi against The Great Muta and The Undertaker.
  • Enlightenment Superpowers: His alter ego Hakushi has some supernatural powers, being the most known his ability to die and resurrect without much trouble. In fact, he is in storyline entombed in the montains of Tohoku when not wrestling.
  • Feel No Pain: Evidently not in Sasuke's level, but even so, he has a considerable pain tolerance.
  • Friendly Enemy: To Sasuke. Despite both being fan favorites, Shinzaki has been his most consistent adversary over the years.
  • Human Notepad: As Hakushi, which has his skin covered in Buddhist texts in a reference to the folk character Hoichi the Earless.
  • Light Is Not Good: Debuted as a heel in 1992 as a member of the Delfín Gundan, but became a fan favorite thanks to his gimmick and presence.
  • Lightning Bruiser: A heavyweight able to maneuver like a junior heavyweight.
  • Meaningful Name: Jinsei means Life in Japanese. Similarly, Hakushi means White Messenger.
  • The Mentor: Towards Hayato Fujita during his initial short face run. In fact, he personally scouted Hayato before introducing him in MPW.
  • No Sell: All his selling seems to be just grimacing mildly when receiving a specially painful move.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't talk very much, except while acting as the MPW general manager.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Sasuke's red.
  • Religious Bruiser: His gimmick is an arukihenro or Buddhist pilgrim.
  • The Stoic: One of the biggest in the puroresu world.
  • Warrior Monk: Not exactly a monk, but still.

Kesen Numajiro

Kinya Oyanagi

Yapper Man #1

Yapper Man #2

Yapper Man #3

Ultimo Dragon

Rasse

  • The Artifact: His role in the promotion has remained unchanged for years. Even after turning heel and joining Kowloon, his luck was the same - a perennial mid-carder with no solid hopes of ascending the scale.
  • Jack of All Stats
  • The Jannetty: Was this to Yoshitsune and later to Kagetora. Only in his recent team with Kenbai he seems to be the major member.

Kenbai

Katsuo

Daichi Sasaki

Ayumu Gunji

Shisao

Otoko Sakari

    Mū no Taiyō 

The Great Sasuke

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Is known for his reticence to taking off his mask in his private life, among others eccentricities.
  • Dark Messiah: His current character. He is leader of a faction whose name means "Nothingness Sun".
  • Diving Kick: In a Kamen Rider style fashion. He is prone to it, even if it entails cracking his skull (see Major Injury Underreaction below).
  • Feel No Pain: Absolutely not. His wrestling style is based around suicide attempts, to put it simply.
  • The Hero: Progresively tilting towards the Retired Badass field, but still.
    • In 2014, he turned tweener and formed a strange unit with the Brahman Brothers.
  • Highly-Visible Ninja: His gimmick originally was a ninja, but nowadays he doesn't pretend to be stealthy anymore.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Made of Iron: The only reason he still alive.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: Cracked his skull doing a Diving Kick during a match with Último Dragón in 1996, but cotinued wrestling the bout as if nothing.
  • Large Ham
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Shinzaki's blue.
  • Spot Monkey: Has his moments of it. His aerial stunts frequently involve ladders, furniture and crash landings.

Kei and Shu Sato / Brahman Brothers

    Asura 

Taro Nohashi

Rui Hyugaji

Tiger Ali

  • Expy: Of Tiger Jeet Singh.

    Bad Boy 

Hayato Fujita

  • The Ace: Not literally, but "ace" is a Japanese term for the top wrestler in the promotion, and Hayato has been the top heel for most of his career.
  • Anti-Hero: Currently.
  • The Apprentice: Was scouted, trained and introduced by Jinsei Shinzaki.
  • Ax-Crazy: Has shades of it as a heel.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Fits the lucharesu role of young punk with an attitude problem, very much like CIMA at his beginnings.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Had a short face run in 2005, having a one-night feud with Los Salseros Japoneses before being sent to Toryumon Mexico to gain experience.
  • Hero Killer: Became one after utterly destroying Yoshitsune and The Great Sasuke.
  • In the Blood: His father Hayato Fujita Sr. was a accomplished wrestler despite suffering from cerebral palsy.
  • Jerkass: His heel persona is a notorious one.
  • Kick Guy: Uses hard shoot kicks to demolish his opponents.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Red Baron: "Junior", "God Bless".
  • Spell My Name with an S: Some sites spell his name in the Japanese order, "Fujita Hayato", which is technically correct, but not adequate to the context.
  • Something Completely Different: His hard hit shoot-style gives him advantage over the luchadores of the promotion.
  • True Companions: With Minamino and Ooma, who were the only Kowloon members that refused to betray him. They jumped to protect him from a beatdown by Kenou and the rest of the stable, and went to form Bad Boy with him and Ken45º.
  • Villainous BSOD: Had one after being betrayed by his Kowloon pals.
